Russia is deploying “brand new” variants of one of its prized attack helicopters in southern Ukraine as Kyiv cranks up its counteroffensive efforts in the region, according to a new assessment.

Moscow has “augmented” its forces in southern Ukraine “with at least a small number of brand new, Ka-52M variants,” the British Defense Ministry said its in daily intelligence briefing on Thursday.

The Ka-52 “Alligator” is one of Russia’s most prized scout-attack helicopters, and Ukraine often amplifies news of Ka-52s being taken out over Ukrainian territory. The Ka-52 is “one of the single most influential Russian weapon systems” in the contested southern Zaporizhzhia region, the U.K. Defense Ministry said.
