Russian Kamov 52

Guidance and control and maneuverability of Russia’s Kamov 52 combat attack helicopter.

If you pay attention to the structure of traditional helicopters, you must have seen their vertical tailgate, whose main task is to neutralize the rotation of the helicopter’s body, which is created in the opposite direction of the rotation of the main propeller. In fact, if the small propeller fails, the helicopter will start spinning around and the pilot will lose control.falseThis led to the development of a coaxial propeller design and the removal of the tail impeller, an operational example of which can be seen in the Kamov Ka-52 attack helicopter, nicknamed the Alligator (made in Russia).
