    The Kamov Ka-50 Black-shark is Russian combat helicopter. Its development was initiated after the preliminary project was prepared by the Kamov designing office, in December 1977.

    Typical for the predecessors of this helicopter were primarly two symmetrical coaxial rotors. In addition to the older Ka-10s, Ka-15s, and Ka-18s, as well as to Kamov Ka-26s, it was the Ka-27, Ka-29 and Ka-32 types which have been widely used especialy by marine air force. Based on the experience acquired from their operation, a project of a new helicopter designed for ground forces was originated.

    The Kamov Ka-50 armament includes automatic, 30mm calibre gun 2A42. In order to improve the Ka-50 combat performance, additional types of ammunition have been developed and/or added. The standard set of the podded armament includes 2×6 VIKHR anti-tank guided missiles and 2 x B-8V-20 blocks of unguided S-8 rockets of 80mm calibre. The fire range of the VIKHR antitank guided missiles is 8 -10 km.
