The Ka-52 "Alligator" was unveiled by the Kamov helicopter design bureau yesterday. It is a two-seat version of the Ka-50 "Black Shark" that incorporates some Western avionics. Kamov hopes to sell it to the Russian ground and air forces and to market it abroad. It will be built at the Arsenyev plant in Primorye. Arsenyev has had little success in getting the Russian military to buy the Ka-50. (Interfax, November 19)
