Russian attack helicopters will receive weapons that have no analogues in the world


The Russian armed forces announce the modernization of the Ka-52 and Mi-28 attack helicopters. The new complex of weapons will have no analogues in the world. The American magazine Forbes writes about it.


According to TASS, published back in June this year, a new model of the Ka-52M helicopter will be equipped with cruise missiles called "Product 305", the range of which reaches hundreds of kilometers - this is much more than the indicator of the Hellfire missile (11 km) standing in service with US Apache attack helicopters.

Similar weapons can be installed on the Mi-28, which has a maximum speed of 300 km / h and a combat radius of 450 km. The total weight of weapons that a helicopter can carry can reach 2,3 tons. These are, in particular, the 9M120 "Attack" anti-tank missiles and a 30 mm cannon.

The Ka-52M will also be equipped with a rotor-mounted radar that will improve the quality of target detection. However, American helicopters have been equipped with such complexes since the late 90s.

At the same time, the author of the publication doubts that attack helicopters of the Russian Navy can be equipped with Zircon, since the length of these missiles is about 10 meters, which is too much for a 15-meter propeller-driven attack vehicle.

      Well, yes, and footcloths have no analogues ... When they start broadcasting like that, it means they are writing blatant bullshit, and the author of another chatter, as can be seen from the article, "has no analogues", but what, the number slapped and believe, especially when further will write:

      The Ka-52M will also be equipped with a rotor-mounted radar that will improve the quality of target detection. However, American helicopters have been equipped with such complexes since the late 90s.

      Does the "aircraft carrier killer" sound not very fresh either? No.

        An aircraft carrier or an invisible airplane sounds even less fresh, I would even say it pulls like a rotten stuff and put up with nothing. Do the master's footcloths smell?

    If a hundred kilometers, then a Ka52 helicopter is too expensive a launch pad.
    The helicopter will not be able to independently give target designation, the distance is too large, i.e. target designation is still external.
    Wasn't it easier to use a truck for transportation and launch?

    ABOUT!!!
    An unparalleled weapon from anonymous sources!
    Cool!

    I am glad that we have finally surpassed the usual 35-year-old anti-tank missile with our newest cruise ... (although we already have similar ones for 30-15 years)
