MOSCOW, September 10. /TASS-DEFENSE/. Kamov Ka-52 Alligator (NATO reporting name Hokum-B) helicopters with the Eastern Military District have conducted their first live fire exercise near Khabarovsk and destroyed around 30 targets, the military district’s press office chief, Alexander Gordeyev, said on Thursday.
"The Ka-52s from the Eastern Military District’s Army Aviation base in Khabarovsk have begun the practical stage of a large-scale tactical exercise," the officer said.
According to Gordeyev, they fired rockets at small-size ground targets simulating the notional enemy’s weapon emplacements. "The Ka-52 attack helicopters have flown about 15 sorties and eliminated around 30 targets," Gordeyev added.
The Ka-52 was fielded with the air base in Khabarovsk in May this year.
