Kamov Ka-29


Comrades, I present you Kamov Ka-29 (NATO reporting name "Helix-B"), a specialized Russian Navy transport and assault helicopter. It is planned to replace the vanilla transport Mi-8 and light attack Mi-24 on the maps where Russia operates from sea. In reality, neither Mi-8 and Mi-24 Hind are meant to be stationed on ships as they are simply too big, don't have foldable blades, so our Ka-29 should bring some more authenticity as well as diversity.

Ka-29 was meant to become a marine equivalent of Mi-24 on land. It can both transport troops(16 soldiers) and engage enemy with variety of weaponry, ranging from unguided rockets to, cannons, ATGMs and bombs. It also has the 7,62 mm Gatling gun "9-A-622" mounted in the nose compartment. The gun has limited movement and is controlled by a co-pilot. But being designed and produced during Soviet times, as with Mi-24V, helix does not have modern thermal optics for its ATGMs.


ATGM, cannons attack versions probably would be introduced later on. As usual, we will implement both armed and unarmed variants. Whether this heli would be present in the next release is also unknown, however we are working on it.

Cheers

    The Ka-27 (NATO designation Helix, meaning Snail) framed is a military helicopter produced by Kamov for the Soviet Navy and now Russia.

    Reading stories about war I could sit all day. Reading this gave me a whole new perspective and I understood why with just a few details cuphead was considered a horror game for children.
