Default Ka-50 Werewolf

The Kamov Ka 50 Werewolf is a single-seat Russian combat helicopter with the coaxial rotor system of the Kamov OKB. It was designed in the 1980s and adopted for service in the Russian army in 1995.

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.
