Russian Helicopters (part of State Corporation Rostec) is taking part in the V International defence technology and prevention of natural disasters exhibition SITDEF 2015, which will run from 14-17 May in Lima, Peru.
Jointly with Rosoboronexport, Russian Helicopters will showcase one of its best performing military models, the Ka-52 Alligator reconnaissance and combat helicopter, which was unveiled to the world at the Le Bourget airshow in Paris in 2013. This helicopter is designed to destroy tanks, armoured and non-armoured ground targets, and enemy troops and helicopters both on the front line and in tactical reserves. It can also provide target acquisition and designation for helicopter teams and ground troop command and control centres. Its target acquisition system, avionics, and attack systems can all operate in any weather conditions, around the clock. The Ka-52 Alligator is ideally suited to operation in Latin America. It is excellently placed for use in high mountainous areas where it is a perfect fit in operations against guerillas and fighting narco-trafficking.
