The crew of the Ka-52 for the first time successfully ejected from a damaged combat vehicle

It became known that the crew members of the Russian Ka-52 Alligator helicopter, Major Roman Kobets and Captain Ivan Boldyrev from Primorsky Krai, performed a feat during a special military operation of the Russian Armed Forces in Ukraine, for which they were presented with state awards. On April 4, referring to the colleagues of the Primorye helicopter pilots, the Vesti: Primorye Telegram channel informed the public about this.

According to the channel, the said crew of the 319th Separate Helicopter Regiment of the Red Banner named after V.I. Lenin (military unit 13984), which is part of the 11th Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Eastern Military District (the permanent base is the Chernigovka airfield in the Primorsky Territory) , for the period from February 24 to March 20, in the process of fulfilling the tasks of the Airborne Forces grouping, carried out 25 sorties.

During one of the sorties, their helicopter was shot down by fire from the ground. In emergency conditions, the crew for the first time in world practice managed to successfully eject using the jet-ejection system, and landed safely on parachutes. Prior to the approach of the evacuation group, the officers fought with the neo-Nazis and were rescued. For courage and heroism shown during the special operation, both officers were presented to the title of Hero of Russia

- says the publication.

It should be noted that the successful ejection from a wrecked similar combat rotorcraft really happened for the first time, since these helicopters have not yet participated in conflicts of such intensity. By the way, this military unit was the first in Russia to receive the Ka-52 in May 2011. A fully "stuffed" Ka-52 costs as much as half of a fighter - about $17 million per unit. But helicopters are "iron" that can be produced. Most importantly, people's lives were saved. They received a new rotorcraft and continued to perform their duties.

      Why did you forget about constructors?

          Is it true, designer? And what did you construct there?

            I am a designer, but who are you? However, we will now find out your mental abilities. And at the same time, design. What are the three kinds of details, I suppose you know? Main view, side view and top view. And here's a mental challenge for you - in the drawing, any two types of parts are circles of the same diameter. What will be the third kind? To facilitate the task, I will immediately say - this is not a ball.
            I wish you success!))

              Yes, yes, you can fill in whatever you want. Vaughn, I was also flooded here with one that he is a professor with critical thinking. And your task does not prove that you are who you say you are. And even if you are a designer, which I strongly doubt, this does not mean that you have anything to do with the development of the KA-52. If the designers had not introduced an ejection system with ejection of the blades into the helicopter, then no pilots could have ejected. And you, as a designer, do not know this, but judging by your answers, you do not know this. Some strange constructor turns out.

                I'm sorry - I see no point in discussing professional issues with you. All the best to you and great happiness in your personal life.

                  That's right, because you could not prove anything, only one la-la. And how he beat in his chest that I was a designer. And as a couple of questions, so merged.

                This is a detail that can be done. Moreover, there are TWO options. But you are on the right track.

    On the third projection there will be a straight line from the oval tilted at a 45 degree angle.

    Someone explain to me: why send helicopters costing the floor of a fighter to shoot at the enemy with nurses at point-blank range, if this task could be performed by IL2 during WWII? These IL2s can still be riveted tens of thousands, and even radio-controlled - let them iron the enemy from low level. Shooting nurses from a fully computerized and expensive helicopter is like shooting sparrows from a cannon ..

      "IL2 since WWII" - called UAVs, they showed their effectiveness back in Armenia, but we always go our own way! Through the loss of military vehicles and the blood of soldiers. "Horses cost money, but women still give birth to soldiers" is relevant even now ...

    The normal organization of hostilities, the rescue team arrived on time, the crew "tested" the ejection system. Well done guys, well deserved award.
