Kamov Ka-25


Kamov Ka-25

The Kamov Ka-25 (NATO reporting name Hormone) is a Russian naval helicopter, designed by Nikolai Il'yich Kamov or V.A. Glushenkov.

Design and development

Ka-25 first flew in 1961. It was produced by the Kamov company. The design of the Ka-25 featured the characteristic coaxial rotor design of Kamov-designed military helicopters. Western equivalents to the "A" model include the SH-2 Seasprite, the Westland Wasp and the Westland Lynx in the light weight anti-submarine role. In this role, it was replaced by the Kamov Ka-27 "Helix".Around 140 of the Ka-25 were constructed from 1966 to 1973. [ [http://www.brtsis.com/helicopters.htm Russian And Soviet Helicopters ] ]
