   The Ka-65 is a new Russia's naval helicopter that is currently being developed by Russian Helicopters corporation. It is being designed as a replacement for the Kamov Ka-27 family of naval helicopters that are showing their age. Pictures of the first prototype emerged in 2019. Currently Russian Navy operates around 90 Ka-27 series helicopters of all variants. Also a number of these naval helicopters are used by various other countries including Algeria, China, India, North Korea, Vietnam. So there could be some export potential for the new Ka-65.

   The new shipborne helicopter will be decked on various types of warships. It will be used for utility, search and rescue, assault transport, anti-submarine warfare, surveillance and other roles.

   As its predecessor the Ka-65 has a coaxial rotor configuration. It uses two rotors spinning in opposite directions. This feature allows to eliminate a tail rotor and reduces footprint of the helicopter on ships. Currently only Russia produces helicopter with such coaxial rotor configuration.

   The new helicopter will have increased performance over the current Ka-27. It is planned that this helicopter will be powered by a Klimov TV7-117VK. This engine is still being developed. This engine will develops 2 800 shp and has a peak power of 3 750 shp.

   This helicopter will be operated by a crew of 2.

   The Ka-65 has provision to carry various weapons, including torpedoes, anti-ship missiles or guided anti-submarine bombs.
