Development of the Ka-27 family began in 1969. The Ka-27 retains Kamov's well-proven contra-rotating co-axial rotor configuration, and has dimensions similar to those of the Ka-25. With more than double the power of the Ka-25 Hormone, the Ka-27 is a considerably heavier helicopter with a larger fuselage, but nevertheless offers increased performance with much-improved avionics and more modern flight-control system. The first production variant was the Ka-27PL Helix-A basic anti-submarine warfare (ASW) version, which entered service in 1982. The Ka-27PL's fuselage is sealed over its lower portions for buoyancy, while extra floatation equipment can be fitted in boxes on the lower part of the centre fuselage. Ka-27 is extremely stable and easy to fly, and automatic height hold, automatic transition to and from the hover and autohover are possible in all weather conditions. Ka-27PL has all the usual ASW and ESM equipment including dipping sonar and sonobuoys as well as Osminog (octopus) search radar. The main search and rescue (SAR) and planetguard Ka-27 variant is the radar-equipped Ka-27PS Helix-D. This usually carries external fuel tanks and flotation gear, and has a hydraulically-operated, 300-kg capacity rescue winch. Ka-28 Helix-A is the export version of the Ka-27PL ordered by China, India, Vietnam and Yugoslavia and with a revised avionics suite. The helicopter can be fitted with four weapon suspension stations. According to the mission requirements, it can be armed with rockets, bombs and machine gun pods mounted on the weapon pylons on both sides of the fuselage. Alternatively, tanks or container pods can be carried. Bombs and containers can be also arranged in the helicopter's torpedo bay. The helicopter is fitted with a 7.62mm flexibly mounted machine gun with 1,800 cartridges. A number of measures are taken to increase combat survivability, including armour protection. The helicopter has been in service with the Russian armed forces since 1985. The Ka-31 is the radar picket naval helicopter version of the Ka-27. The main mission of the aircraft is to detect long-range threats including airborne threats such as fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. It also performs surveillance, target tracking and transmission of the target data to the command posts. The airframe of the Ka-31 is based on the Ka-27. It has a rotating antenna of the airborne electronic warfare radar, which can be folded and stowed under the fuselage. The Ka-31 is equipped with auxiliary power plant, a de-icing system for the main rotor blades and co-axially mounted contra-rotating main propellers. The maximum and cruise speed of the Ka-29 helicopter are 280km/h and 240km/h respectively. The service ceiling and tactical radius of the helicopter are 3,000m and 100km respectively. It can fly at a range of 460km. The maximum take-off weight of the helicopter is 11,500kg. The helicopter weighs around 5,520kg when empty.
