From the time the Ka-50 was ordered in 1987 it was known that the limited night-time capability of the original Ka-50 version would have to be upgraded to meet night attack requirements. Some Ka-50s were fitted with low-light TV and infrared sensors for testing.
I love the russian helicopters. The designs are pretty wild especially the co-axial rotor systems. I would love to get a chance to work on them.
