The Kamov Ka-32 is a high performance heavy-lift helicopter. The Russian / Soviet-made helicopter is capable of transporting 5 tons of external and 3,7 tons of internal loads. Maximum takeoff weight is 12.600 kg.
The Kamov Ka-32 helicopter is equipped with two powerful turboshaft engines that power two coaxial contra-rotating, three-blade main rotors. The rotors spin in opposite directions and so neutralize torque effects. This eliminates the need for a tail rotor.
