Kamov Ka-29

Soviet Naval Assault-Transport Gunship




The Ka-29 is the heavily armed assault version of the Kamov Ka-27 ASW helicopter. It was created to support amphibious landing operations, and features a co-axial rotor design that eliminates the need for a tail rotor and enables all the power to be used towards producing lift and higher top speed thru the elimination of the dyssymmetry of lift. Development of the Ka-29 started in 1973, first flight took place in 1976, trial were completed in 1979 and production began in 1984. Entered service in 1985 and is sill in service. It is a relatively obscure helicopter, many people mistaking it's tamer brother, the Ka-27.


Compared to the Ka-27, the Ka-29 features a larger redesigned cockpit, seating 3 crewmen, and can carry 16 fully armed troops. Alternatively in the medical evacuation role it can carry 4 stretchers, 7 seated casualties and medical attendants and it can carry external loads on a sling with a maximum weight of 4 000 kg. It features roughly 350kg of armor around the cockpit and engines.


Armament wise it can take a wide variety of standardized loadouts such as S5 and S8 rocket pods, sub-munition dispensers, 23mm gun pods, torpedoes, bombs and Shturm-V and Ataka-V guided missiles. It features a flexible-mount 4-barrel GShG-7.62 rotary machinegun in a hidden compartment on the right side of the nose and provisions for mounting a fixed 2A42 30mm auto-cannon on the left side pylon outriggers. The coaxial rotor design leads to lower vibrations and better accuracy than conventional rotor designs.

I actually made a low-poly 3D model of the Ka-29 a few years ago for Second Life. If I had more free time and knew how to rig for the WT engine I'd probably redo the model to current standards and try getting it in WT myself.
