The Kamov Ka-50 "Blackshark" attack helicopter entered service with the Russian Army in 1995. It is a single seat aircraft which is unique among attack helicopters, with twin contra-rotating main rotors, and an ejector seat making it more unusual than most...

The official name is 'Blackshark' which was changed from 'Werewolf' in 1996. The NATO reporting name is 'Hokum'

The Ka-50 is normally armed with 12 x laser-guided anti-tank missiles and a 30mm cannon.

This example is a Ka-50 of the Russian Army, circa 1997.

"werewolf" is not official name - only for publicity on shows Russian named this chopper blackshark (чёрная акула;), but its not an official name too. Russians and Soviet aircraft hase no official names only unofficial "nicks" and indexes (like KA-50)

from Russia with love :)

Ah yeah, I think I get it now - I was asked to draw a 'werewolf' by a friend, and I think that's the only name he knew by...
