This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
This kit showcases the special night operations version of the well known Russian Kamov modern attack helicopter. It has been in operation since 2004.
The Ka-50 is a Russian single-seat military helicopter, designed as a gunship. It features the usual load of weapons in external hard-points, with the wing stores able to carry 2,300 kg. It has contra-rotating co-axial rotors which remove the need for a tail-rotor and apparently make the craft fully aerobatic.
It was designed by the Kamov company starting in the 1980s and adopted for service in the Russian army in 1995. It is manufactured by the Progress company of Arseniev. Its NATO reporting name is Hokum A.
This is a special version of the well known modern Russian attack helicopter. It has been in operation since 2004.
The Ka-50 was the first helicopter fitted with an ejector seat. Before the rocket in the K-37-800 ejector seat kicks in, the rotor blades are jettisoned.
