Developed in 1961 by Russia's Kamov Design Bureau, the Ka-25PL is a variation of the Ka-25; a later model replaces the initial GTD-3F engine with the more powerful 736kW GTD-3M engine.  The helicopter can be fitted with floats for water landings and can operate at night.  A common use of the aircraft is anti-submarine warfare (ASW).
