Russian Deputy Defence Minister Alexei Krivoruchko said that Russia planned to sign a contract in 2020 on purchasing 114 upgraded Ka-52M (Alligator) attack helicopters. The upgraded version of the Ka-52 attack helicopter, the Ka-52M, would be created by 2022. The upgraded Ka-52M combat helicopter will get more capabilities for using weapons against targets in the air and on the ground. “In cooperation with other enterprises, we are working on the issue of increasing the helicopter’s armored protection and renewing its power supply system. The second task is to standardize air-launched weapons with our other helicopters of the Mi family.” CEO of Russian Helicopters Andrei Borinsky said.
