??? - Kamov Hormone /In Soviet Service/ (9)
Configurationally unique among current service helicopters in having superimposed contra-rotating rotors, the Ka-25 is currently the only Soviet shipboard ASW helicopter in AV-MF service. Seen in its Hormone-A version, this helicopter is exceptionally compact for the capacity that it offers. The photo illustrate the inverted flower pot-type housing above the tailboom.
