Description: The Kamov Ka-27 was developed to replace the Ka-25 shipborne helicopter in the Soviet Navy performing Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and Search and Rescue (SAR) missions. In addition, the Ka-27 was designed to operate at night and all-weather conditions which were the main shortfalls of Ka-25 aircraft. The NATO nicknamed this aircraft as Helix. The Ka-28 is the designation assigned to export models and Ka-32 designation refers to variants intended for the civil/commercial market. The Soviet Union's Navy also developed the Ka-29 shipborne assault helicopter and the Ka-31 airborne radar helicopter based on the Ka-27 platform. The aircraft uses Kamov's characteristic twin three-blade coaxial contra-rotating rotors design making the tail rotor irrelevant and unnecessary. It is powered by two TV3-117V/VMA turboshaft engines each rated at 2,200-hp. The Ka-27 prototype first flew in 1973 and entered service in 1981.

The Ka-29 assault/transport aircraft derived from Soviet Ka-27 ship-borne helicopter and intended for assault missions operating from aircraft carriers carriers and amphibious landing ships. Moreover, it can take-off and land from unpaved ways, land airfields in addition to ship's flight deck. The Ka-29 is a combat, assault and transport variant of Ka-27 introducing some aircraft fuselage modifications and cabin room for up to 16 fully equipped marines. Optionally, it can be equipped with air-to-surface, anti-tank missiles such as the 9M114/AT-6, a four-barrel 7.62mm machine gun, a 30mm cannon, unguided rocket launchers and other weaponry in its Ka-29TB attack variant. The Ka-29 entered service with the Soviet Navy in 1985. It is no longer in production and may be replaced by the Ka-29M or a new platform such as the Ka-60 helicopter.
