Re-equip without helicopters

"Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the adoption of the new State Armament Program (GVP) at 2018-2027.

As for aviation, it is planned to adopt the latest Su-57 fighters (PAK FA, known as T-50) and MiG-35, modernize Tu-95MS bombers, Tu-160M and Tu-22M3, and create a long-range aviation complex PAK YES) "(TASS).

Helicopters can not be seen, probably in the program documents for their old age and remember about them uncomfortable. But the tone of the helicopter stagnation is set by the designers of the cost center. For example, in the film "The Magnificent Eight" (to the 50 anniversary of Mi-8) gene. the designer of the cost center AGSamusenko publicly declares that Mi-8 will fly for another half-century, so there is nothing surprising in the fact that the helicopters stopped remembering. In addition, deputy. Defense Minister Yuri Borisov has already concluded a contract for 100 Mi-28NM helicopters for 2019 year.

Another matter of the Navy: "... it is planned to receive up to 2025 two helicopter carriers equipped with the latest marine helicopters Ka-52K" Katran ". And where the helicopter carriers, there and "Katran", tandem - the beginning of which was laid back in the distant Soviet times, a small Ka-15. Then everything was honest: they put on the weapon not a corrupt official, but the WINNER! The right to serve on ships then won Ka-15 from the more powerful Mi-1 helicopter: it was more compact, it was safer to get on the ship when rolling, because the tail propeller did not interfere with its absence, and the cargo was transported as much as Mi-1 with a more powerful engine. Then replaced by more advanced and stronger Ka-25, and then a solid Ka-27 helicopter with unique capabilities, "which is capable of detecting, tracking and destroying submarines following a depth of up to 500 m at speeds up to 75 km / h in search areas , remote from the ship of the basing to 200 km. At the same time, the helicopter can do this when the sea rises to 5 points day and night in simple and difficult weather conditions "(" Star ").

But to him for the replacement in the firm "Kamov" under the leadership of General Designer S. V. Mikheyev, an even more advanced and high-speed helicopter is being built:

"As the Chief of Naval Aviation of the Russian Navy, Major-General Igor Kozhin, earlier said, by the year of 2020 the company" Kamov "will create a radically new helicopter for Russian naval aviation. Today the name of this helicopter - "Lamprey" became known.

The main distinctive features, according to Igor Blinov, the consultant of the "Helicopter Industry Association" magazine, "the salon will be closer in size to the G-8 (Mi-8 helicopter," ES "), the speed in" Lamprey "will be increased to 320 km per hour . "(, 03.12.2015).

Likha trouble - the beginning and, if I understand correctly, then from the classic Mi-X1, the managers of the holding have finally refused:

"The first concept (Mi-X1) is a helicopter similar to the American Piasecki X2 with the use of an additional propeller at the end of the tail boom. Not the best technical solution - most likely this car will not accelerate even to 450 km / h, which again is associated with the behavior of the main rotor.This is already confirmed by the Americans - in these studies they went a little further than Russia.

The concept of the Russian design bureau "Kamov" corresponds to the solutions of American Sikorsky - two carrying screws and one pushing. There, the technology of the "advancing blade" is used - the left half of the lower screw and the right half of the upper one work to create the lift. This technical cunning solves the issue of speed, but equips the helicopter with a very complex blade control system, "the expert (General Director of the Russian Helicopters Holding Andrey Boginsky) said.

I believe that the insight in the heads of "effective managers" and designers of the MVZ came not from conscience, but from the fact that according to the contract with the Ministry of Defense ("Helicopters of Russia"), in November this year they are obliged to show the real face of a high-speed helicopter, created for the Air Force with subsequent implementation.

It is clear that high-speed fraud with Mi-X1 in this case in relation to the Air Force will not pass, because Minister of Defense S.K. Shoigu punishes for hack-work and not weak! And the Air Force pilots are aware that the American "Piasecki X2" is more than a year old than our Mi-38, but the result is "penny": its real maximum speed for today is equal to 400km / h. This is also a good speed, but it is far from being bluffed by the cost center designers for Mi-X1 in 520 / h, which they managed to contain the real high-speed projects of Ka-92 and Ka-102 already for 10 years. But "better late than never"! So, judging by the statement of A.Boginsky, the project Ka-92 has struck the road to life!

But the work of the gene. designers of the MVZ mired in a long-obsolete classic scheme and, in my understanding, they are today at the "broken trough", because the helicopter of any other scheme is a problem for them, and they once gave a single-screw without a tail rotor to Eurocopter, which, without wasting time, built the demonstrator X3 on this scheme, reaching a record speed of 472k / h on it.

And the Milevs continued to "improve" the old man Mi-24, solidly naming it: "Flying Platform" and believing that in the summer of 2016 year it will reach the speed of 450km / h.

Alas - another bluff! At this time, the European Helicopter Holding Company Airbus Helicopters introduced the project of the prospective high-speed rotorcraft RACER (Rapid and Cost-Effective Rotorcraft, fast and cost-effective rotorcraft.) 27June 2017.)

7 April 2016 on the portal "Avia Pro" was printed article "Is it possible to replace helicopters from the last century?", Where I described the proposed scheme of a single-rotor helicopter without tail rotor:

"The absence of the tail and end beams after the classical scheme will greatly facilitate the design, which will increase the power-to-weight ratio and useful loading of the rotorcraft. So, instead of the tail rotor on the right wing, install a reducer with a reversible screw (propeller) with a power equal to the maximum power consumed. screw, i.e. to 15%. On the left wing install a theater with a pulling propeller (propeller) twice as large, i.e. to 30%. Fuselage aircraft type with a tail unit »(

From Milev constructors, as you might expect, there are no emotions, but Eurocopter did not long wait for itself:

"May 20, 2016, 9: 39 PM Airbus simply patented what could be the fastest helicopter in the world"

"Unlike the prototype X3, the propellers of patented helicopters are mounted behind the wings, not the front. According to the patent, this helps to reduce noise and vibrations while improving safety of the lift and the passenger. The authors of the patents indicate that further development of the project will include turbojet engines. This means that the patented helicopter is likely to be much faster than the record X3. This new patent can also be the latest development of low impact fast and efficient Rotor-Craft, or LifeRCraft, to which Airbus helicopters hinted at 2014 year. This project is also based on the concept of X3. "Airbus patented the concept of a helicopter with" at least one lift engine and a carrying rotor, at least one pair of wings, at least with a pair of horizontal thrust engines, one to the right and to the left "(" Business Insider ").

If Airbus on this scheme issues high-speed records, then first of all I would like to see greater economic returns compared to the classical one: by eliminating heavy tail and end beams, the weight of the helicopter design will be much less in favor of a useful load, and due to wing the cruise speed will increase to a minimum of 320km / hour, which will have a positive effect on the flight range, while the main rotor blades are serial from the Mi-8, as well as the main reducer, which promises cheapness of the project.

But the most interesting thing is that this "Scheme of the helicopter BI Yuriev, patented in 1910 year. The patent formula read: "A single-screw helicopter, characterized in that the torque generated by the lifting screw is destroyed by the moment of forces of the two small screws acting at the ends of some shoulder perpendicular to the axis of the large screw." (Yuryev Boris Nikolaevich, creator of the world's first uniaxial helicopter).

And it was implemented in Russia in the times of "King of the Pea": Russian Aviation Museum Bratuhin 11-EA 1936.

Experimental rotorcraft of TsAGI 11-EA.

  • Developer: TsAGI, I.P. Bratukhin
  • Country: USSR
  • First flight: 1940

I have no doubt that over time, such a rotorcraft will return to us, and today we have a promising coaxial Ka-32-10AG to replace the eight and, contrary to the efforts of Western technology lobbyists, this helicopter will sooner or later be in operation, because its advantages over the "Mi" are obvious:

The Mi-171A2 maximum flight speed is 280 km / h, and for Ka-32-10AG this speed will be cruising.

Ka-32-10AG on the external suspension can carry up to 7t. , while Mi-171A2 with the same engines - only up to 5t, not to mention flight safety: if a lateral gusty wind is capable of filling Mi-8 on its side, then a coaxial helicopter such wind from either side is not a hindrance.

Do not see the apparent superiority of the helicopter Ka-32-10AG over Mi-8 can only be a blind, or a foe of Russia!


And this year our combat helicopter pilots will receive:

  1. 6 * Ka-52 attack helicopters;
  2. 30 * multipurpose helicopters Mi-8 different modifications;
  3. 20-24 percussion helicopter Mi-28N, Mi-28UB and Mi-35M;
  4. 1 * multipurpose helicopter Mi-38T. "

* (Resource News of Russia)


And what helicopters should our Armed Forces be equipped with this year:

  1. 6 * Ka-52 attack helicopters;
  2. 30 * multipurpose helicopters Ka-32-10AG of various modifications;
  3. 20-24 percussion helicopter Ka-50 "Black Shark".

At the beginning, supporters of Mi-28 flaunted that Mi-28 is very cheap compared to Ka-50, and for "poor" Russia this is the main argument in favor of the Mi-28 helicopter. Today, prices have leveled off, but our Army continues to arm these mediocre and unreliable helicopters for the joy of the Americans, instead of the outstanding Black Shark drummers. The reason for the Ka-50 unicity for its removal from the arsenal with the replacement for Mi-28 is exactly the same "convincing" as the American "proofs" of the chemistry in the Duma with the subsequent missile attack on Syria!

I am amused by the expression "carrying capacity" in relation to Mi-1, and Ka-15 too. They could carry only the gas station and the application.

*** In the IMF "applications are not transported", there "they carry orders", I than Ka-15 coped better than Mi-1.

To make a breakthrough in helicopter construction, I want to remind our government of the main truths:
1. We need talented developers-enthusiasts such as Mikhail Leontyevich Mil and Nikolai Ilich Kamov, for which it is necessary to seriously prepare young cadres, starting with the school bench, and not engage in any kind of garbage like the USE and the Bologna education system. We need a Soviet system and an education school, which have recently been deliberately and consistently destroyed.
2. We need powerful state funding, targeted programs like the Soviet ones. And the state does not have enough money, because the so-called leaders deliberately profaned people's money, they are now with their permission from "successful oligarchs" in offshore and Forbes magazine, and you, comrades, leaders, I think, some -that from the bounties of the people. In short, our money was crying. And while in Russia there is this dead-end economic system, I doubt that a fundamental breakthrough in helicopter construction is possible.

Yes-a ... With this government from our swarm will not work ... nothing ....

We need to change the government led by Medvedev! That's when you can achieve improvement in all areas of industry, civil and military industries. Also in the economy, finance, and in the fight against corruption. And so we only show-show artists with television, speculators, business sports and deputies with bureaucrats thrive on the poor working population of the country. How can a state develop with such a ballast of freeloaders? What is their use for scientific and technological progress?

Medvedev lived, Medvedev is alive, Medvedev will live, he was placed by international Zionism, and to no Putin, let alone the so-called people, is not removed.

How many do not change the composition of the government without changing the legislative framework that decides the fate of the untouchables in the government, we can not achieve a positive result. We are told by officials and paid mass media daily about the care of officials in the social sphere (education, health). However, what is the result in fact - poverty among workers in the sphere of production, corruption.

Aha, and it will be like before Putin - the salary is delayed by half a month, scared banditry, people are killed in crowds in Chechnya, they sell booze even to their babies, George Soros prints history textbooks where utterly-investigative links and facts are completely excluded, wages of several million for which nothing it is impossible to buy in a few months, the army has a very scarce money supply, backward technology, officers are forced to earn money at night by destroying cars, pensions are husbands for two months, Gusinsky has his own TV channel and a private army, Brezovs and British Aerospace, British Petroleum takes our oil not for money but "at the cost" in which it writes everything down to the post-pencil, Nemtsov pays foreign state enterprises for nothing, Khodorkovsky and Platon Lebedev - in 10-times they hide taxes on oil, leave the pursuit and disgrace the managers giving honest testimony, and the young guys against their will are forced to kill the not-yet-fraternal conscientious people in Chechnya - just like now in Ukraine, Poroshenko sends Ukrainians to kill Ukrainians. Remembered? Still want to repeat? So that we become like in Libya, in Syria or in Iraq?

Dimon, you're just a stupid freak. He was neither in Lebanon nor in Syria nor in Iraq. You sit with a bottle of beer and argue, you're afraid. that at you from a hand a bottle will snatch out. Do or make faster, and that you will not be in time.

There is a salary, but there is no money, but you hold on. So we live under Putin-Medvedev.

Who does not want to work, but likes to argue, what a bad government, it has always been and will be without money

Earlier - 3 and more years ago, 24 and 8 flew above us, now I see them rarely, new flyers fly. It was vdikovinku them to see, now on the contrary, it will soon be difficult to see 8.

Surviving their age, cracking at all seams, heavy trucks Mi-26T

we do not have new helicopters just because the helicopter industry was headed by Serdyukov !!!!! where was our army with him and what? ....
