The Ka-52 Alligator is a two man variant of the Ka-50 ‘Black Shark designed as a dedicated ground attack helicopter despite loosing out against the Mi-28 ‘Havoc’ to become the Russian Army’s Main Gunship. The Ka-50 and all it’s variants have a coaxial rotor design thus negating the need for the vulnerable tail rotor and increasing the helicopters top speed.
Call of Duty EndgameEdit
A Ka-52 is stolen by Cortez and Dunn during the events of Worst Case Scenario to track a stolen UAV and Makarov. On the way to the second compound Cortez uses the Helicopters weapons to shoot down Mi-24 ‘Hind’ Helicopters and destroy Truck Mounted AA Guns and BM-21 ‘Grad’ Launchers with its Igla AA Missiles and S25 Rockets respectively. Upon reaching the second compound the Ka-52 is shot down by a concentrated fire from Pantsir-S1 AA Platforms and ZPU AA Guns although Cortez and Dunn were able to escape using the vehicles canopy ejection systems.
More Ka-52s appear alongside Eurocopter Super Cougars and Combat Support Boats are used by Ryan McIver to harass the TF-141 after they infiltrate a Houbei Class Missile Boat during the level One Minute on the Clock. Later in the level the player can use a HK GMG mounted on a Combat Support Boat to destroy them as they attack Captain Price after you fall off the Missile Ship.
