As per my information, this CCTV report just talked about the Ka-52 and made no mention of a PLAN navy acquisition, not even a possible one and at best it hinted that it could be an option for the PLAN ... maybe someone who saw this report can clarify?
@escobar Sir in anticipation of Russia future purchase of 075 LHD? so maybe a quid pro quo?
Yes no mention of a PLAN navy acquisition, just speculation. The shipborne version, KA-52K is still in development and not cleared for export. If CN is interested it should be KA-52 for PLA Army.

Sorry, but that's ridiculous ... the PLA Army will never buy Ka-52, there si no need for it esp iin mind of an allegedly quite well progressed development of its own heavy future combat helicopter.

But also, isn't the Egyptian Ka-52 not exactly this shipborne variant?

Is it possible if true, it could be for evaluation purposes just like Su-35? Maybe Russia is desperate to score a sale.

Guys ... please calm down! We have a CCTV report about the Ka-52 and a well known Twitter poster who often posts such Tweets to get attention.

So for the moment, there is not the slightest hint that there is even a PLAN interested and even if the surely could afford it, even if there may be some reason for it, we have NOTHING that even hints towards it. So please stop with this "Is it possible if true"!

Indeed, it is possible if true, that there is live on Mars.
