Kamov Ka-50 3 by WS-Clave Kamov Ka-50 3 by WS-Clave
The Kamov Ka-50 "Blackshark" attack helicopter entered service with the Russian Army in 1995. It is a single seat aircraft which is unique among attack helicopters, with twin contra-rotating main rotors, and an ejector seat making it more unusual than most...

The official name is 'Blackshark' which was changed from 'Werewolf' in 1996. The NATO reporting name is 'Hokum'

The Ka-50 is normally armed with 12 x laser-guided anti-tank missiles and a 30mm cannon.

This example is a Ka-50 of the Russian Army, circa 1999.

Always found the whole contra-rotating rotors to be rather interesting. Seems the Russians love that design.

Double-rotors look badass somehow.

great work, it looks so cool!!! i was just looking at this one and the Apache, and was wandering if you have some drawings of a Mi 24 Hind. I think the 3 are some nice tank-busting helis

It's an amazing helo all right.
The first PC combatsim I ever owned and played was Comanche vs Werewolf back in 1996.
12 years on and its still part of my virtual fleet having recently had a very nice version released for MS Flight Simulator.
I certainly wouldn't have minded if the post-Cold War Army Air Corps had selected this beast over the WAH-64D.
Shame about the fate of the RAH-66 though.

Outstanding work! Good to see a change after all these Mustangs and Lightnings ;)

I'm not sure, but I think the new presentation system lacks these small flags in the lower corners.. methinks. :o
