Ka-52 Alligator, a new-generation all-weather attack helicopter. It is designed to engage ground targets and low-speed flying targets. The helicopter is armed with a 30-mm cannon, Vikhr (Whirlwind) laser-guided missiles, rockets, including S-24s, and bombs. For improved pilot survivability the Ka-52 is fitted with a K-37-800 ejection seat. Before the rocket in the ejection seat deploys, the rotor blades are blown away by explosive charges in the rotor disc and the canopy is similarly jettisoned.
