KRET is upgrading the Ka-52K helicopter

The new radar will improve the helicopter's detection range by up to 200 km

KRET is ready to expand the features of its aircraft carrier version of the Ka-52K, equipping it with upgraded, on-board radar. This will increase the detection range of the helicopter by 2 times, or almost 200 km. The upgrade will also enable the Ka-52K to utilize anti-ship missiles such as the X-31 and X-35, which previously could only be used with the Su-30 and MiG-29K.

The Ka-52K Katran helicopter is a version of the Ka-52 Alligator carrier combat helicopter. The aircraft is equipped with advanced avionics and powerful offensive weapons that can be configured for different purposes.

KRET enterprises produce key avionics systems for the helicopter, which allow the Ka-52K to effectively carry out combat missions in all weather conditions and at any time of the day.

It has a laser-beam guidance system and a guided weapons system for processing from the Okhotnik series. The Arbalet radar system, produced by KRET, allows the helicopter to effectively conduct combat missions even when exposed to electronic jamming.

"An integrated set of on-board equipment produced by enterprises KRET makes the Ka-52K a powerful, reliable and modern weapon. In the future, helicopters will receive a new airborne radar, which will allow them to fire X-31 and X-35 anti-ship missiles," said KRET CEO Nikolai Kolesov.

As he pointed out, this makes the Ka-52K an absolutely unique fighting machine, as these anti-ship missiles until recently could only be used by the Su-30 and MiG-29K.

The aircraft carrier version of the Ka-52 differs from the army version primarily in its adaptation to being based on Russian Navy ships. To do this, the helicopter has mounted folding wings and blades, as well as an air conditioning system designed for use in the humid marine atmosphere.

As with the standard Ka-52, the ship-based helicopter is equipped with Vitebsk, the onboard defense system developed by KRET specialists, as well as the GOES-451 gyro-stabilized optronic station and the 2A42 30-mm automatic cannon.
