what do you friends think about naval choppers which could work also as an awacs. what are the posibilites of pn inducting a few to guard the coasts.

one such chopper detail is given below.

KA-31 DESIGN
The Ka-31 naval helicopter, as in all Kamov helicopters except the Ka-60 and 62 family, has co-axially mounted contra-rotating main propellers. The airframe of the Ka-31 is based on the proven and highly successful Ka-27; one visually distinctive feature of the Ka-31 is the large antenna of the early warning radar, which is either rotating or folded and stowed under the fuselage.

The landing gear retracts in order to prevent interference with the radar.

KA-31 COCKPIT
The flight deck of the Ka-31 Naval Helicopter is wider than that of the Ka-27 and accommodates two crew, the pilot and the navigator. The cockpit is armour protected.

The navigation suite includes a Kronstadt Kabris 12-channel global positioning system, digital terrain mapping, ground-proximity warning and obstacle approach warning.

EARLY WARNING RADAR
The early warning radar, E-801M Oko ('Eye'), was developed by the Nizhny Novgorod Radio Engineering Institute. The 6m² radar antenna is stowed flat against the underside of the fuselage until deployed.

The navigator switches on the radar system and the antenna extends, turning through 90° from the horizontal to the vertical plane. In operation the antenna rotates at 6rpm. Once the navigator has switched the radar system to operational mode, the system works autonomously without operator control. The navigator monitors the target observation on a display.

The radar has 360° azimuthal coverage. The surveillance range against a fighter aircraft size target is up to 150km.

"The Ka-31 naval helicopter has co-axially mounted contra-rotating main propellers."The surveillance range against a surface ship is typically 100km to 200km. The radar is capable of simultaneously tracking 40 targets.

When the radar surveillance phase of the mission is completed the antenna is retracted to the storage position. The antenna is fitted with explosive bolts enabling it to be jettisoned quickly in an emergency, such as in preparation for a forced landing.

KA-31 PERFORMANCE
The Ka-31 has a maximum take-off weight of 12,200kg. The operating altitude is up to 3,500m. The helicopter flies on patrol at 100km/h and the operational range with the antennas in the stowed position is 600km. The mission duration is two hours 30 minutes.

ENGINES
The helicopter is powered by two Klimov TV3-117VMAR turboshaft engines, rated at 1,633kW each. The fuel tanks are filled with a fire suppressant low-density polyurethane foam material, which prevents the build up of an explosive fuel and air mix and will also suppress fuel loss in the event of severe combat damage.

Power for the radar and antenna is provided by an auxiliary power unit, type TA-8Ka, installed above the rear section of the engine bay. A flight recorder is installed in the tailcone fairing.

quite a few russian helos were at display in IDEAS 2008 i am sure Ka-31 could be a good option for heavy class chinese frigates that pakistan wants buy.

This Chopper can become the best naval helicopter if it conatains the property of electronic inteligence gathering EINTL. It lacks Electronic WareFare Scenario.
I think we have Atlantic reconisance aircrafts which can do simillar job. Or even better.
We should opt for Hawkeye awaks which are the best naval reconisance and early warning aircrafts suited best for naval air and electronic warfare. Which can jam radars.
Naval and Air Operations highly rely on electronic warefare capabilities .

Well as far as i know americans prefer planes rather then choppers....but then we dont have any aircraft carriers tofly those Hawkeyes so heli's would be a good choice...

We already have a fleet of latest MI-17's. But I sure wouldn't mind some Mi-28's.

BMP? We're producing our own Armoured Personal Carriers. Don't worry, won't be long before we made one with a 100MM cannon.

Britain used this concept on Sea King Helos for the invicible class carriers so it could well be done.

For early warning dont we use the P3c orions. I dont think we need a heli for the above mentioned role. However we do need one ASW role and Z-9 will perform that role in the future.

We have 8 upgraded P3C orions on order & even the US is going to use such type of planes for the next 10 to 15 years.

I think in this segment we are already fully covered for the next at least 10 to 15 years, as the Orions will be supplemented by the Erieye's too.
