According to the promo video release put out by TV studio of Roscosmos, TsAGI scientists work on improving the advanced high-speed helicopter’s performance.  Released footages also showing the 3D model of new Russian high-speed helicopter which corresponding to images that was previously published.

On 27 November, CEO of the Zhukovsky Central Aero-Hydrodynamic Institute (TsAGI) Kirill Sypalo told TASS that for a project of a new advanced high-speed helicopter also will be created flying laboratory on the basis of the Ka-52 helicopter.

“Sergei Mikheyev [the Kamov Design Bureau’s chief designer] plans to start work in the imminent future to create a flying laboratory of the advanced high-speed helicopter on the basis of the Ka-52 helicopter,” Kirill Sypalo said.

According to the TsAGI chief, the work on the advanced high-speed helicopter is proceeding in two directions. In the first area of work, some developments, such as the new layouts of blades and rotors will be installed on existing Mi helicopters. In the second area, specialists are developing a helicopter of a principally new scheme whose project has been presented by the Kamov Design Bureau.

On October, in Russian social media “accidental” leaked the images of an advanced high-speed helicopter whose project has been presented by the Kamov Design Bureau.

The concept feature a ‘delta’ fixed-wing, co-axial rotor system, a side-by-side cockpit, and pusher engines in the rear similar to what is utilized on the Sikorsky S-97 Raider and Bell V-280 Valor. The co-axial rotor system will be driven by two engines.

It is expected that the new helicopter will reach a maximum speed of 400km/h and more and a cruising speed of 360 km/h and more.
