The Kamov Ka-27 (NATO reporting name 'Helix') is a military helicopter developed for the Soviet Navy, and currently in service in Russia, Ukraine, Vietnam, South Korea, People's Republic of China, Republic of China and India. Variants include the Ka-29 assault transport, the Ka-28 downgraded export version, and the Ka-32 for civilian use. The helicopter was developed for ferrying and anti-submarine warfare. Design work began in 1970 and the first prototype flew in 1973. It was intended to replace the decade-old Kamov Ka-25, and is similar in appearance to its predecessor due to the requirements of fitting in the same hangar space. Like other Kamov military helicopters it has a co-axial rotor, removing the need for a tail rotor. A Russian Navy KA-27 helicopter from the Russian Udaloy class destroyer RS Serveromorsk (DDG 619) conducted interoperability deck landing training on board USS Mount Whitney on 22 July 2010. Designed to replace the Ka-25 Hormone as ship on-board helicopter of the Soviet Navy, it has more powerful engines, a bit long fuselage and a redesigned tail. Modern variants include naval anti-submarine warfare (ASW) Ka-28, the search-and-rescue (SAR) Ka-27PS, the air assault Ka-29, and the Ka-31 airborne early warning helicopter equipped with the E801M Oko (Eye) air and sea surveillance radar the ka-27 come in four versions, the ka-27, 28, 29, and 32. the ka-27 is a naval helicopter with the co-axial rotors, having two variants, the ka-27pl which are used in pairs for anti-submarine use, and the ka-27ps which is used for search and rescue. the ka-28 is an export version of the ka-27pl. the ka-29 and ka-29tb are assault transport helicopters. the ka-32t is a utility transport helicopter, and the 32s is a utility version for operating in adverse weather. the 32k is a flying crane version of the ka-27. Ka-27 made serially from 1981. For the Navy it has been made at serial factories 353 helicopters Ka-27 (in a Kumertau) various updatings. Nine Ka-31 helicopters have been ordered by India, for deployment on the INS Viraat aircraft carrier and Talwar frigates. First deliveries are scheduled for late 2003. Also based on the Ka-27, the multi-role Ka-32 has been chosen by South Korea for search and rescue duties.

It operates off of ships and performs a multitude of duties including, but not limited to: anti-submarine warfare (its primary role), search and rescue, maritime patrol, anti-surface warfare and transport duties. The Ka-27 was introduced into the Soviet Navy as a replacement for the aging Ka-25 "Hormone" in 1982. The Ka-27 was designed much to the same dimensions as the Ka-25, so that it could utilize the existing decks on Soviet warships designed for the Ka-25, but although the two have many design similarities, the Ka-27 is distinguishably longer than the Ka-27. The first version of the Ka-25 to enter service was the Ka-25PL "Helix-A". The PL was designed strictly as an Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) platform. It can, however, participate in limited rescue and transport operations. For the ASW role, the Helix has a weapons bay under the fuselage that can accommodate torpedoes and other stores as well as sonobuoys, but as of yet, there are no accurate accounts of the weapons capabilities or the possible armament of the Ka-27PL. The second version of the "Helix" to enter service was the Ka-29TB "Helix-B". This version is quite different than the -25PL in a number of ways, because the -27TB is an assault helicopter. It is designed to haul 16 fully armed troops from ship into combat in its spacious cabin. Instead of the weapons bay under the fuselage, there is a whole lot of armor plating. The rescue winch has been removed from above the left rear entrance, and all ASW capabilities have been lost in the conversion from the patrol and ASW role to the assault role. The final version of the "Helix" to enter service was the Ka-27PS "Helix-D", which is essentially the same as the civil version, the Ka-32 "Helix-C". Both versions have no ASW capability, no rescue capability, and are bound strictly to the transport role. Operators: Algeria, Ukraine, China, Vietnam, the Soviet Union / Russia and India.
