Loss for the military-industrial complex of Ukraine


Sprawling conflict in Ukraine can become very sensitive for the Russian defense industry. The fact that the 70% of aircraft engines for helicopters and transport aircraft of Russian producers manufactured at the plant "Motor Sich" in Nikolaev.

But Ukrainian "hawks", who are for the "independent" and "Square" in Ukraine and probably do not realize what a blow for "Ukroboronprom" they prepare.

For Russia, the gap of cooperation with the Ukrainian manufacturers, too, can be very sensitive. After all, the bulk of engines for helicopters Mi-8And our transport is made on the "Square". According to experts, is to adjust its production of engines, Russia will need 3-4 year at least. But that's not the whole problem. The basis of our nuclear shield constitute an ICBM "Bulava" ("Satan" in the NATO-encoded).

And the engines, as you may have guessed, is done, again, in the Ukraine. A little consolation is that the life of these missiles will expire soon. And in any case, they will need to be removed from the database, and what it replaced. But our military experts and analysts probably foresaw such an outcome of the situation. And 10 years ago, the program was launched standalone, Russian arms production cycle. With an emphasis on the rejection of neotechestvennyh manufacturers and suppliers.

And yet, against this background, it looks strange position of the Russian Defense Ministry. The main order for the manufacture and supply of UAV was taken in Israel. Not to mention the helicopter order in France. This is clearly seen someone's lobby in the higher echelons of power. For any imported machinery brings podsazhivanie to "needle" supply of components, spare parts and pr.dlya country.

Do we need it?

After the collapse of the Soviet Union passed 20 years. Someone thought about that many businesses will come from the military-industrial complex and will, in fact, a monopoly? I hardly ... Ukrainian defense industry, will also be difficult to survive without Russian orders. When else will catch the NATO customers. And to eat and live all need today, now. From 3 5 years before the Ukrainian defense industry need to refocus on the NATO market. Are you ready to wait as workers "Motor Sich", for example?

Ukrainian prime minister said on Friday,

Ukraine stops the supply of arms

and military tezniki "Ukroboronprom"!

This will be painful this step? The question is rhetorical. I do not think that the work of the Ukrainian enterprises, joyfully embraced the news!

Back in Russia. There was a problem with the staff for aviation. This is primarily a problem with the FAC. In March Gos.Dumy passed a law in the first reading on the hiring of foreign pilots, including the post of the first pilots. Despite the fact that only 2013 year, pilot training was made 625 people, acute shortage of flight crews.

acute shortage of flight crews

A holy place is never empty! And emptiness is filled not always with righteous methods. The cases of getting "crusts" of the pilot for bribes became more frequent, and people, at best, have a raid even on light aircraft. Cambling and snatcherichnstvo penetrated and into the system of admission of pilots to the management of passenger aircraft. The author of these lines, knows the system well, and the cost of admission to flights and the cost of a flight book. But the problem was truly global in the Caucasus region. And from there, without proper checking, pilots come to domestic, Russian lines. And after a year, three years, such "pros" are rented to the FAC, without special verification. And then they pass the admission to "Airbus", and "Boeing". If there are as many checking and controlling structures in Russia, the situation is doubly incomprehensible.

And our future commanders with you the sun, can simply show your logbook and pass a test on the Russian language. A guarantee of a good payment for their work in Russia, will not guarantee our safety with you!

In the following review, we will review with you the problem of small aircraft.
Soft landing!
