Two killed in Russian military helicopter crash: official

One of Russia's most modern military helicopters has crashed during a training exercise, killing its two-man crew, official said Tuesday.

The Ka-52 Alligator two-seater, which entered serial production in 2008, went down in the central Tver region on Monday evening, the local investigative committee said in a statement.

One pilot was killed at the crash site while the other died of his injuries in a regional hospital on Tuesday, the defence ministry said.

Although Russia's underfunded military frequently loses aircraft during training, often with fatal consequences, it was the first time that a Ka-52 had crashed, Interfax quoted military expert Yevgeny Matveyev as saying.

Russia's president-elect Vladimir Putin has promised to spend about 23 trillion rubles ($780 billion) by 2020 on the modernisation of the country's Soviet-era military force.
