Lolz first its a Ka-52 and then a Ka-50! I'd sure love to see the Apache master that Soviet shapeshifting while attempting a maneuver like that (which it actually can, but let's make it interesting xD )

I was asked recently why helicopters don't have ejection systems. I showed them this pic. xD

I was the one who asked her that (in a PM) in anticipation that she would come back with this. But on a serious note, there are some that actually do have ejection systems.

 Which was pure fiction. The real Tiger helicopter does NOT have an ejection system.

However, the system itself is real. Some military helicopters have rotors with explosive bolts designed to jettison the blades as the pilot or co.ckpit section blasts away from the fuselage. The Ka-50 is equipped with an ejection seat for example. I think the Ka-52 might have it too.

Though Leela's pic is meant to be humorous it does speak some truth. An ejection seat actually was tested on the AH-1W but abandoned because of how dangerous it was. A sideways ejection seat was also tested on the ninth Cheyenne prototype (s/n 66-8834) but its fate went with the program.

Yup you're right except you boomeranged back to fiction by saying the whole co.ckpit section can be jettisoned after the blades separate. AFAIK all of the known helicopters tested/equipped with ejector systems are only ejection seats like in fighter jets.

Serves me right for not having the source material in front of me, but I remember reading somewhere that an ejection system much like the one in Goldeneye did exist, but of course on a different aircraft.

The Ka-52 and Apache can shapeshift?

I learn something new everyday.
