Not really, they were basically just snowmobiles with a AI-14 260 hp engine that allowed the vehicle to move on snow or ice at a speed of 30-35 kilometers per hour. It was developed from a modified Soviet Pobeda (Victory) as a snowmobile called the Sever-2 (North 2) from 1959, which was also a development of Kamov.

But then for ground vehicles that would be considered flying in a different sense. biggrin

Germany also began developing similar snowmobiles during the second World War to counter the Russians' efforts as they were quite impressed with their winter mobility. Tatra was one of the firms who began experimenting with the aerosled-snowmobile design and built two prototypes with modified T-87 engines. They were never put into production and they instead captured Russian models.

  • V-80Sh-1 - Two preproduction versions built at Arsenyev. The first (014) introduced UV 26 chaff/flare dispensers, the second (015) introduced the K-37-800 ejection system and mockup of LLLTV in articulated turret.
  • Ka-50 - Production designation.
  • Ka-50N / Ka-50Sh "Night Shark" - Night-capable attack version.
  • Ka-50-2 - Ka-50-2 designation applies to three quite different aircraft. Basic Ka-50-2 is a variant of the Ka-50 single-seater, though the designation is also applied to two twin-seat aircraft; first of these was a version of the Ka-52 "Alligator". All Ka-50-2s differ from the baseline Ka-52 in retaining attack and anti-tank rote using 12 laser beam-riding AT-8 Vikhr ATGMs or 16 Rafael NT-D ATGMs; avionics to be supplied by Israel Aircraft Industries, Lahav Division; 024 used as demonstrator. The basic Ka-50-2 was proposed to China, Finland, India, South Korea, Malaysia, Myanmar, Poland. South Africa, Syria and Turkey. 

    Second variant of Ka-50-2 is another two-seater, intended to have conventional stepped tandem ****pits; is offered to armed forces which do not accept the single-seat or side-by-side two-seat layouts. A further subvariant of the tandem-seat Ka-50-2, the "Erdogan" (Turkish for Born Fighter), was proposed to Turkey jointly by Kamov and Israel Aircraft Industries. This would have been fitted with longer-span wings and feature a NATO-compatible Giat 621 turret containing a single 20mm cannon which would fold down below the belly of the helicopter in flight, for a 360° arc of fire; it would fold to starboard for landing, and could be fired directly forward, even when folded. TV3- 117VMA-02 engines. Ten Turkish pilots flew Alligator "061" at Antalya, Turkey, in early 1999 as part of evaluation process; requirement was for 145. Named as second choice when Bell AH-1Z selected, but negotiations reopened in mid-2002, following impasse in negotiations with USA. Ka-52: Two-seat version.

Kamov Ka-52 "Alligator" (NATO/ASCC "Hokum-B") - Two-seat derivative of Ka-50 as day/night combat and training helicopter.

Kamov Ka-54 - Reportedly the original designation for Ka-50-2, but could also be a later designation. Help???

Kamov Ka-56 - Single-seat ultralight helicopter powered by 40hp air-cooled rotary engine which burned motor-car fuel, though never flown due to a lack of suitable rotary piston engine.

Kamov V-60 - Projected assault/utility helicopter in competition with Mi-22 and Mi-24. Often confused to be an early Ka-60 proposal.

Kamov Ka-60 "Kasatka" ("Orca") - Medium transport helicopter. Production engine will be 1,103kW Klimov VK-1500. RRTM RTM322 or GE CT7 available in export versions.

  • V-62 - Prototype/preseries designation. (For Ka-60 or Ka-62?)
  • Ka-60 - Basic multi-role model.
  • Ka-60U - Training version.
  • Ka-60K - Naval version.
  • Ka-60R - Reconnaissance version.
  • Ka-62 - See below.
  • Ka-64 - See below.

Kamov Ka-62 - Civil model for the Russian domestic market. It will be equipped with Turbomeca Ardiden 3G engines.

----Also said to be powered by two RKMB RD-600, Glushenkov TVD-155 or Turbomeca RTM322 turboshafts.

  • Ka-62M - Export version to be certified to Western standards. Powered by two 1,212kW General Electric T700/CT7-2D1 turboshafts. Production version is expected to be manufactured by KnAAPO at Komsomolsk.

Kamov Ka-64 "Sky Horse" - Reported to be a joint venture with Agusta intended for export. Features include a conventional tail rotor, modified passenger cabin, Western avionics and option of General Electric CT7-2DL, LHTEC T800 or RTM 322 turboshaft engines. Production would be by UUAP at Ulan-Ude.

Kamov Ka-65 UVK - In 2009, the Radar MMS company issued a brochure on its Kasatka surveillance system, in which the Kasatka-VB variant was implied to be undergoing trials in a Kamov Ka-27M testbed and be intended for eventual deployment in the "Ka-65". Nothing further is known of this project, except that Kasatka-VB is optimised for land- or ship-based helicopters with max weight between 6 and 12 tonnes. Uncorroborated reports in 2010 suggested that Ka-65 is a transport/assault type to meet UVK (Udarny Vertolyotny Kompleks Strike Helicopter System) requirement and incorporates tail-mounted propeller. This suggests it may be related to civil Ka-92.

  • Also a fictional designation for a support helicopter in a game.

Kamov V-80 - See Ka-50.

Kamov Ka-90 - High-speed helicopter project.

Kamov Ka-92 - High-speed transport helicopter project.

Kamov V-100 - Twin-rotor combat rotorcraft with pushing propeller. Unbuilt.

Kamov Ka-100 - (?) Said to be the Ka-90's alternate designation.

Kamov Ka-102 - Tandem-rotor compound helicopter project. Unbuilt.

Kamov Ka-115 "Moskvichka" - Light multi-purpose helicopter powered by a Pratt & Whitney/Klimov PW 206K/2 engine.

  • Ka-215 - Proposed twin-engined version announced in 2000, when cost estimated as more than US$1 million. No further information had been released by early 2003.

Kamov Ka-116 - See Ka-26.

Kamov Ka-117 - UAV, no details.

Kamov Ka-118 - Proposed NOTAR-equipped helicopter after tests of the technology on the Ka-26SS. Assumed to use single TVO-100 engine. Unbuilt.

Kamov Ka-126 - See Ka-26.

Kamov Ka-128 - See Ka-26.

Kamov Ka-136 - Apparently an early reporting designation for the Ka-50.

Kamov Ka-137 / MBVK-137 - Multi-purpose UAV. Three versions were built: One ship-based, one automobile-based, and another carried by the Ka-32 helicopter. The aircraft uses a piston engine, driving a coaxial-rotor system and features a tailess, sphere-shaped fuselage with four-leg leaf-spring landing gear.

Kamov Ka-215 - See Ka-115.

Kamov Ka-226 "Sergei" - Ka-126 with two 420shp Allison 250-C20B turboshafts, deeper and wider two-seat ****pit with large windshield and nose, reshaped tail fins, modified transmission, enlarged cabin section with larger windows.

  • Ka-226A - Utility helicopter.
  • Ka-226-50 - Described initially as "improved version", but now appears to apply to all standard models.
  • Ka-226AG - Gazprom specific variant. (?)
  • Ka-226T - Instead of Rolls-Royce 250C engines, this variant is fitted with the more powerful Turbomeca Arrius 2G2. Each engine provides 670 shp, increasing the service ceiling to around 7000m, providing improved high altitude and high temperature operation.
  • Ka-226U - Dual-control training variant.

Kamov Ka-327 - ?

Kamov-Kumertau "Rotorfly" - Ultra-light coaxial-rotor helicopter powered by a Rotax 912ULS engine.

I also have an A-3 and an A-6... Also, my list has the Ka-136 as a small utility helicopter, not a variant of the Hokum... Finally, the Ka-29TB was initially known as the Ka-27B.

Thanks, I fixed the list.

Ka-136 was both actually. It was a reporting mistake of the Ka-50 during the Cold War and also a misprint of the Ka-126 "Hoodlum-B".

Hi,

Ka-16 was a large four-crew transport helicopter,also there is two anther

V-50 projects,first as long range helicopter and the second was well

known.

Ka-60K was also called Ka.65 to used from ship board and Ka-90
was also called Ka.100.

No hesham, I can tell you straight off this is a reporting mistake.

They were mistaking the naval Ka-60K as Ka-65 due to it's proximity in the designation system and the 'K", as "Ka-65 UVK" is the '65's full title. They have nothing in common.

I'm also having trouble placing the "Ka-100" designation on the Ka-90, since 100 had already been used for the V-100 twin-rotor project. It's true that the project and model designations are separate from each other, but I have never seen them recycle a designation number as such, the only exception being the V-50 versus the Ka-50.

That being said, some of you will probably remind me of the Ka-35, but I have a strong feeling the so-called "convertiplane" project of the same designation was entirely fake.

If 50 was used twice wouldn't that just add to the plausibility?

This is why I hate Kamov's designations. The whole system is horribly confusing!

Mil has had their share in confusion too.

The V-12 (Mi-4 prot.) versus V-12 / Mi-12 "Homer", the Mi-6M experimental versus Mi-6M project developent for Mi-26, as a select few.

No hesham, I can tell you straight off this is a reporting mistake.

They were mistaking the naval Ka-60K as Ka-65 due to it's proximity in the designation system and the 'K", as "Ka-65 UVK" is the '65's full title. They have nothing in common.


 

I'm also having trouble placing the "Ka-100" designation on the Ka-90, since 100 had already been used for the V-100 twin-rotor project. It's true that the project and model designations are separate from each other, but I have never seen them recycle a designation number as such, the only exception being the V-50 versus the Ka-50.

That being said, some of you will probably remind me of the Ka-35, but I have a strong feeling the so-called "convertiplane" project of the same designation was entirely fake.

Triple-Nickle, I'm afraid you're missing a few others. The V-60 and the Ka-60 for example, have nothing in common. They, too, carry recycled numbers.

The key here is that, as you said, the project and model designation systems are separate from each other, and so there should be absolutely no limitation on which numbers to use to indicate their place.

However, the flaw with Hesham's report is the fact it still retains the "Ka-" prefix, therefore giving it a place in the model list, but when in fact the Ka-90 already takes it's place in the same list with a "Ka-" prefix. The only way a "Ka-100" could be related is if it carried the project designation "V-100", which was obviously already taken. Then perhaps the Ka-90 would actually be V-90, but no reports suggest that to be it's true project designation, and instead report it to be a model designation with "Ka-" prefix.

  It's not my opinion dear Gunship,

it is a fact from a Russian Great site;

Some recent additions that should be considered:

1- small light helicopter shown in model form from 1963, possibly recycling the designation Ka-29.

2- large skycrane with tip-jets, similar to Bratukhin-MAI hot-cycle design studies.

3- medium carrier similar to the coaxial-rotor Ka-40 with empty fuselage to accommodate detachable passenger pod or vehicle.
