    There was some information from the Russian MoD quite recently that Sprut along with a few other projects were shut down, for unknown reasons. No clear affirmation or denial of this information did not follow.

    however I wouldn't jump to conclusions. Our MoD suffers from psychosis and often announces strange things, later denying previous statements and rumors.

    it is not exactly clear to me why Sprut-SD was not shown at the parade ... who knows? maybe it does have smth to do with what Popovkin said... but then parade or no parade, psychosis or no psychosis there are anywhere from 60 to 110 Sprut-SD units deployed with the Russian armed forces at the moment ... at least according to this source

    It's actually some newer prototype - look at all the thermals in the nose.

    No, its relatively ancient. A modified version of the single-seat Ka-50N/Sh or whatever they called it, it was first shown in MAKS 2007 IIRC. Nothing ever came of it. A curiosity.

    It's even earlier than that - I photographed it at MAKS 2000 !!
