The Ka-60 Kasatka (Killer whale) is to be used for aerial reconnaissance, for transporting air-assault forces, radio-electronic jamming, for special-operations missions and for various light-transport missions. The new medium multirole Ka-62 helicopter incorporates the latest technologies and materials in aircraft building. It meets Russian and international flight standards (Russia’s AP-29, Europe’s CS-29 and JAR-OPS3), offshore operational requirements, international standards for reliability, resource use, flight safety, comfort, usability, service life and repair.
The Ka-62 is fitted with two Ardiden 3G 1,680 h.p. engines made by SAFRAN HE.

The airframe and propeller blades will be over 50% made of polymeric composite materials.
The Ka-62 is designed for cargo transportation, medevac and search and rescue operations, and can also be used in the oil and gas sector and for corporate purposes. It operates in temperatures down to –35°С without any need to heat the transmission assemblies and engines;
The Ka-62 can fly in adverse weather conditions, and into known icing conditions. The helicopter can be operated from an airbase, oil platform and unprepared ground areas. The Ka-62 is capable of autonomous deployment and does not need to be stored in a hangar.
