Kamov Ka-15 made its first flight on April 14, 1953 at the hands of test pilot D.K.Yefremov. State acceptance trials were completed in 1955, and next year the helicopter entered production at aircraft factory No 99 in Ulan-Ude. The Ka-15 evolved into a number of specialized versions, including the multi-purpose Ka-15M, the UKa-15 dual-control trainer version and the four-seat Ka-18. In each case prototype construction began at factory No 82 in Tushino and was completed at the OKB's own experimental shop near Ukhtomskaya railway station.
By virtue of its small size and manoeuvrability the Ka-15 successfully performed take-offs from and landings on the ship's small helipad even in sea state 6 conditions.
Once a submarine was detected, a third Ka-15 equipped with the OPB-1R sight and two 50-kg (110-1b) depth charges entered service.
The Ka-15 and it's variants remained in service for almost 20 years.
