Title: Kamov KA-26

The Kamov KA-26 is a light utility co-axial rotor helicopter which first flew in 1966. It has two radial piston engines in external pods and features removable fuselage pods to facilitate rapid changes between roles. Over 600 were produced and the Russians had ideas at one time of getting Western certification, probably the reason for the English flight manual.
