    The Russian border guards have cancelled a plan order for Naval Ka226T. So it holds no chance.

    A Panther is capable of using almost every weapon meant to be used by a naval helicopter. And so does the requirements of Navy call for it.

    The Ka226T has till now only used light machine guns.

    Don't go by the articles and their silly headlines. The Ka-226 will be part of the navy's tender for light helicopters.

    Kamov was part of the 56 helicopter deal for the navy back in 2012. The 2012 tender was sent to pretty much all the big names and this was Buy and Make Indian, but again, only Airbus and Augusta replied, just like the Buy Global tender before that. Kamov did not have an Indian partner at the time.
