My English is insufficient..
This is an Indian plane, from the series that was specifically modified in Russia by the Indian order for takeoff (and landing) from inundated runways with the water depths up to 1 m.
PS: But I don't believe that it's an Indian plane personally. First, I don't remember Indians having the Su-25, and second, the plane has a Bulgarian roundel.
Wow, that is something...... I already liked the SU 25 for it's abilities anyway...... but being able to land and take-off from 1m deep water is quite something...... maybe one would never nedd to that... but let alone it being possible is just amazing.... try that with any western equivalent ...........
So, if Akhtubinsk GLIC/Torzhok CBP are testing Ka-52 as an armed reconnaisance helicopter (sort of counterpart to RAH-66 Commanche) and Mi-28N as a close air support helicopter (like AH-64 Apache or AH-1 Cobra), then why the hell do they need any Ka-50?
I understand that the whole program is still work-in-progress and no stable doctrine has been developed yet, but it seems to me like Kamov plat has got their allocation of budget money and between Ka-52 and Ka-60 and some future naval helo aren't going broke, so why is MoD paying for development of 2 Kamov land-based combat helicoters?
