Re-equip without helicopters

“Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the adoption of a new State Armaments Program (LG) for 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 are not visible, probably, in program documents on their old age and it is inconvenient to remember about them. But the tone of the helicopter stagnation is set by the designers of the cost centers. For example, in the movie “The Magnificent Eight” (on the 50 anniversary of the Mi-8) gene. MVZ designer AG Samusenko publicly declares that the Mi-8 will fly for another half a century, so it is not surprising that helicopters are no longer remembered. In addition, the deputy. Defense Minister Yury Borisov has already signed an agreement for X-NUMX Mi-100HM helicopters for 28 a year.

Another thing of the Navy: “... it is planned to receive two helicopter carriers, equipped with the newest Ka-2025K Katran sea helicopters, before 52. And where the helicopter carriers are, there is also Katran, a tandem - the beginning of which was laid back in the long Soviet times by a small Ka-15. Then everything was fair: not a corrupt official was put into service, but the WINNER! The right to serve on the ships then won the Ka-15 from the stronger Mi-1 helicopter: it was smaller, it was safer to get on the ship when rolling, because it did not interfere with the tail rotor due to the lack of such, and the cargo was carrying as much as Mi-1 with a more powerful engine. Then the Ka-25, more sophisticated and powerful, was then replaced, and then the Ka-27 helicopter, which is solid with unique capabilities, “is capable of detecting, tracking and destroying submarines following at a depth of 500 m at speeds up to 75 km / h in search areas remote from the base ship to 200 km. At the same time, a helicopter can do this at sea state up to 5 points day and night in simple and difficult meteorological conditions ”(“ Zvezda ”).

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.

According to Igor Blinov, consultant for the Association of Helicopter Industry magazine, the main distinguishing features are: “the salon will be closer in size to the G-8 (Mi-8 helicopter, note“ ES ”), the speed in the Minogue 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 decisions of the American Sikorsky - two rotors and one propeller. They use the technology of the “advancing blade” - the left half of the lower screw and the right half of the upper screw are used to create lift. This technical trick solves the problem of speed, but it equips the helicopter with a very complex blade control system, "the expert emphasizes (Andrei Boginsky, Director General of the Russian Helicopters holding. News.rambler).

I believe that the enlightenment in the heads of “effective managers” and designers of cost centers did not come from conscience, but from the fact that, according to a contract with the Ministry of Defense (“Russian Helicopters”), they are obliged to show in November this year the real appearance of a high-speed helicopter, created for the Air Force and its subsequent implementation.

It is clear that high-speed eyewash with the Mi-X1 in this case in relation to the Air Force will not work, because Minister of Defense S.K. Shoigu for the hack is punishing and not weak! And the Air Force pilots know that the American Piasecki X2 has fewer years than our Mi-38, but the result is “penny”: its real maximum speed is equal to 400km / h today. This is also a good speed, but far from the bluffing cost centers for Mi-XNNUMX in 1k / h, which they managed to contain the real high-speed projects Ka-520 and Ka-92 as much as 102 years. But "better late than never!" So, judging by the statement of A. Boginsky, the Ka-10 project struck a road into life!

But the work of the gene. the cost center designers got tied up in the classical scheme that had long outlived themselves and, in my understanding, they are now at the “broken trough” because the helicopter gave them any other scheme a problem, and they “presented” the single-rotor without tail rotor to Eurocopter, which, without losing time, they built the X3 demonstrator according to this scheme, reaching a record speed in 472k / h.

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 supply and the payload of the rotor wing. So, instead of a tail rotor on the right wing, install a gearbox with a reversing propeller (propeller) with a power equal to the maximum power consumption xB. screw, i.e. up to 15%. Install a turbojet propulsion propeller (power) twice as large on the left wing, i.e. up to 30%. Aircraft-type fuselage with 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 X3 prototype, the propellers of the patented helicopters are mounted behind the wings, not the front. According to the patent, it helps to reduce noise and vibration while improving the safety of the lift and the passenger. The authors of the patents indicate that further development of the project will include turbojets. This means that the patented helicopter is likely to be significantly faster than the record X3. This new patent may also be the newest low-impact development fast and efficient Rotor craft, or LifeRCraft, which Airbus helicopters hinted at in 2014 year. This project is also based on the concept of X3. “Airbus patented the concept of a helicopter with“ at least one lifting engine and a carrying rotor, at least one pair of wings, at least a pair of horizontal thrust engines, one each right and left ”(“ Business Insider ”).

If the Airbus on this scheme gives out speed records, then I first of all wanted to see a greater economic return compared to the classical one: due to getting rid of heavy tail and end beams, the weight of the helicopter's construction will be much less in favor of the payload, and due to wing wings propellers' cruising speed will increase to at least 320km / h, which will have a positive effect on the flight range, while the rotor blades will be serial from the Mi-8, just like the main gearbox, which promises low cost 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:

For the Mi-171А2, the maximum flight speed is 280 km / h, and for the 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.

Not only the blind, or the enemy of Russia can not see the clear superiority of the Ka-32-10AG helicopter over the Mi-8!

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? ....
