The New Ka-52 Russian Helicopter

 We got to see a demo flight of the Russian Ka-52 at the Paris Air Show.  This is a new Russian attack helicopter, and it was pretty impressive with what it was doing.  The Russians also have a pretty novel design in that they have two sets of rotors on the main pole.  The rotors rotate in opposite directions.  They also don't have a rear stabilizing rotor.
