Kamov Ka-29 was born in the 1970s, the first flight was made in 1976.
Ka-29 has an empty weight of 5.52 tons, maximum takeoff weight of 12.6 tons. It is 11.3m in length, 5.4m in height, and 15.9m in main rotor diameter.
Behind the cockpit is a passenger cabin, accommodating up to 16 fully equipped soldiers. In the role of medical evacuation, it can carry 4 stretchers, 7 seated casualties and medical attendants. In addition, it can carry an external load with a maximum weight of 4 tons.
The Ka-29 retains the uniqueness of the Kamov family – it has coaxial rotors, removing the need for a tail rotor. The elimination of the tail rotor is a priceless attribute when considering onboard storage for a navy warship. Additionally, the stout fuselage design and tri-fin tail section are clear indicators of a Kamov design.
The Ka-29 is powered by two Klimov TV3-117V turboshaft engines, with a capacity of 2,190 hp each. The helicopter can reach a top speed of 250 km/h, a range of 460km.
