Russian Navy helicopter to be exact.

This is an early warning helicopter used by the navy, the slab under the helicopter is a radar and rotates down then spins around to search for targets

Nice detail, and I agree with the photographer... you can feel the chill in the air. As for the first comment, the KA-31 is an AEW platform, the "tank" you reference is actually the radar, folded and tucked up underneath.

I'd be willing to bet that this becomes a historic photo. I bet it is shown over and over again through the years. It's that good.

I think this is a cool chopper! It kind-of looks like a Pug. Is the applique tank hanging under the body for fire supression?
