I recently visited this site about Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant and found some Kamov designations I never heard of:

http://www.mi-helicopter.ru/eng/getarticle.php?id=152

  • Ka-9
  • Ka-11
  • Ka-12 multi-purpose nine-seat helicopter
  • Ka-14-1 light multipurpose helicopter
  • Ka-14-2

I'm also curious about this designation as well: Kamov Ka-41.

If anyone has any information on these, perhaps pictures, that would be great.

Thanks. ;D

Ka-41 designation was used in the west for the Ka-50 Hokum prior to the real designation being revealed. Its not real.

Regarding the others, how about posting here what the article says about each?

Okay, thanks. ;D

Okay, see here:

Kamov designers developed the following projects at GOSZ No. 3: the Ka-11 which continued the concept of a small single-seat helicopter; the Ka-12 multi-purpose nine-seat helicopter featuring an unusual single-rotor layout with two coaxial anti-torque rotors; the Ka-14-1 light multipurpose coaxial-layout helicopter; and the Ka-14-2 heavy tandem twin-rotor helicopter powered by two Shvetsov ASh-82 engines.

Well, I guess I don't need that much info after all. It would be nice, though, that pictures be provided.

Thanks. ;D

I read some more in my International Combat Arms magazine and found that the Ka-50 was also designated Ka-34.

I even found an image, from a website. I could't get the picture from the magazine.

Found another designation, Ka-17. It used coaxial rotors, and the Ka-8 "Flying Motorcycle" was derived from it. Any additional info or pics? That would be great. Thanks. ;D

Hi,

there was two Kamov Ka-12 projects,first Ka-12 powered by one
M-21 as single seat helicopter of 1945,and the second Ka-12 as
a 5-seat light weight helicopter and called Rodina.

Ka-14-1 was a multi-purpose nine-seat helicopter,powered by one
ASH-82 engine.

Ka-14-2 was a troop heavy transport helicopter weight 16 ton
and powered by two ASH-82FN engines.

Ka-16 was a large four-crew transport helicopter,also there is two
anther V-50 projects,first as long range helicopter and the second
was well known.

Ka-60K was also called Ka.65 to used from ship board and Ka-90
was also called Ka.100.

I believe this is the Kamov Ka-34 heavy lift helicopter (cleverly marked Yellow 34):

You got it, except that earlier on I had referred to the designation alternatively being applied to the Ka-50 as reported in ICA magazine (re-use of designation or such, because I had actually known of the heavy-lift compound design already). Of course, me not being very attentive back then, I had not realized it was a simple reporting mistake. ::)
