UDC under construction in Crimea will be the first to receive secret "Lamprey" helicopters

A model of a promising Russian carrier-based helicopter Ka-65 "Lamprey" was captured by the journalists. This happened on the territory of the NTsUO exposition in Moscow during the expanded collegium of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, when Russian President Vladimir Putin via video link took part in the ceremony of accepting the nuclear submarines "Prince Oleg" and "Novosibirsk" into the Russian Navy.

In the screenshot, the Ka-65 model is located between the Ka-27PS and Ka-52K helicopters. All rotary-wing aircraft are on the upper deck of the model of the Project 23900 universal amphibious assault helicopter carriers of the Ivan Rogov type being built in the Crimea.

Little is known about the Lamprey; its characteristics are shrouded in mystery. The Ka-65 should become a "submarine fighter" or "submarine hunter", in any case, it is for such a main combat mission that it has been trained since 2015, although there will be minor ones. This is a completely new helicopter - the first truly Russian development of JSC Kamov, and not a rethought Soviet technique... For clarity, the Ka-52 is a further development of the Ka-50, work on which was started back in 1976.

In the fall of 2020, the general director of the Russian Helicopters holding (part of Rostec) Andrei Baginsky announced that the first prototype Ka-65 would be created and would rise into the sky “in 2025 or 2026”. The helicopter will be equipped with two Russian TV7-117VK gas turbine engines with a capacity of 3000 hp each. each (in afterburner mode, they can develop a power of 3750 hp). The rotorcraft will be able to reach speeds of over 300 km / h.

At the Ka-65, the rotor blades will fold. He will also receive improved anti-corrosion protection. Due to the widespread use of composite materials, the Lamprey will be lighter than the Ka-27, but it will be able to take more payload. It is likely that the Ka-65 will be controlled using the BARK-6 digital automatic system.

      Another model (not even a layout) backed up by "promises" ... lol Typical Russian promising economy. And at this time, the prosecutor's office is looking for 9 aircraft, T-500 allegedly produced by MBEN at the Kazan aircraft plant named after Gorbunov. They are looking for and cannot find ... the planes evaporated, as did the money allocated for their construction by the Obninsk NPO "Tekhnologiya" (a subsidiary of "Rostec"). This is all you need to know about the production of "new technology" in Russia. laughing

        The train left Poltava for Samara, but did not reach Samara, and did not return to Poltava. He disappeared without a trace along the way. Alexander Ivanovich disappeared with him.

    With the same success, you can put a model of the Su-75 on the mock-up of the ship and say that it is a "vertical".
    The Ka-60 is still in short supply - the helicopter is almost ready.
    And what about IL 112? 114? Are we flying already?

        Anything is long enough to create a vertical version. But bad.
