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

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.

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.

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".
You forgot the Ka-58 "Black Ghost" stealth attack helicopter.
Vince Johnson - A merciless enemy but a powerful ally.
It's fake Vince.
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

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.
Yippie Kai Yay, Mr. Falcon.
If 50 was used twice wouldn't that just add to the plausibility?
Burn Rubber does not mean Warp Speed!
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.

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;
So many new designations! I will add them later.
Thanks for the link hesham.
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.
We have here the latest in primitive technology.
