P.Butowski - Katran & Helix /Military/
This Ka-31R ‘91’ was the second example of this version to be delivered. Its permanent base will be the Severomorsk-1 airfield.
The Katran retains the Ka-52's 220kg (485lb) GOES-451 electro-optical turret.
The Ka-52K’s wing folds aft, with the hinge on the trailing edge near the weapons pylon.
4 Due to its shorter wing, the Ka-52K has only four weapons hardpoints rather than the Ka-52’s six.
