"Helicopters of Russia" and the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation signed a contract for the formation of the concept of a high-speed combat helicopter.

The Helicopters of Russia (part of the Rostekh State Corporation) within the framework of the International Military Technical Forum "Army-2017" signed a contract with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on the concept of a high-speed combat helicopter (SBV).

“To date, the holding has developed a serious scientific and technical reserve for the project of a promising high-speed helicopter. The indicators and experience gained during the tests and we and the Ministry of Defense considered it sufficient to proceed to the next stage - the formation of the concept of a high-speed combat helicopter. The contract concluded today is a serious step into a new generation of helicopter building with higher speeds and flight performance, ”said Andrei Boginsky, Director General of the Russian Helicopters holding, after the signing.

The contract is designed for two years, according to the results of its execution, the shape of the SBC should be defined and a technical task for carrying out development work is formed.

(Helicopters of Russia).

Similar already time was:

*** «27.03.2013. The Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia concluded a contract with the holding company "Russian Helicopters" to carry out scientific research work on the high-speed helicopter project, Interfax reports with reference to the ministry's materials. Under this agreement, the Russian holding will receive 2,5 billion rubles. As expected, the research phase will be completed in November 2013 year. "

In a year.

*** «30.01.2014. The Moscow Helicopter Plant im.Milya (part of the Russian Helicopters holding company) will develop a preliminary and technical design of a new Russian advanced high-speed helicopter before the end of November 2015, a representative of the holding Roman Kirillov told Itar-Tass. The amount of the contract for research work will be up to 3,3 billion rubles. "

They "fulfilled" the contract for 4months and then the "Rachel" layout.

*** «13.05.2014. Russia will spend on the project to develop a promising high-speed helicopter about 7,5 billion rubles. This is, according to Interfax, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia Yuri Slyusar. According to him, the funds for development will be allocated from the state budget. In addition, the holding company Helicopters of Russia will finance the project.

Total: 2.5 + 3.3 + 7.5 = 13.3 billion rubles. spent and there is a “Rachel” mockup, but there is no helicopter!

For the Ministry of Defense - 2goda. And they are no longer writing about the militia, but further methods of “fighters for the withdrawal of banknotes” (Ostap Bender) from the State will, I suppose, be aforesaid. I also see a difference: they previously had a contractual link with the Ministry of Industry and Trade, which is in the same ideology with them, now they are dealing with the Ministry of Defense, which, if it fails to comply with the contract, can also present substantial penalties. Therefore, it seems to me that the designers of the cost centers this time will not have to assemble layouts for the exhibition, but to build true helicopters, but according to the contract! However, they don’t have any experience of designing and construction, but there is a good reserve left for them by an outstanding M.N. Tishchenko - “280 product”, so that they shouldn’t hit the face.

“The maximum speed of the car was planned for 380-420 km / h.

In the rotorcraft, the elements of the serial Mi-24 were used. The length of the car was about 2 / 3 from Mi-24. The compactness, spaced along the wing engines and high speed of flight, increased the survival rate of the machine over the battlefield. The cross-sectional scheme guaranteed a safe bailout of the crew outside the screw disks.

The project of such a car was made in 1973 year, the rotorcraft was equipped with two engines TVZ-117F with the power of 2800 hp. each, with two supporting screws with a diameter of 10,3 m and a propelling propeller, the take-off mass was 11,5 tons. "

Grace! Even the “formation of the concept of a high-speed combat helicopter (SBV) ...” disappears, “the look of the SBV has already been defined” and research projects have been carried out. But improvements are still required, because there is a stagnation in technology only in the cost centers, and today composite materials, engines, electronics, and for combat helicopters, and weapons. For example, the Ka-52 helicopter's anti-tank equipment in Syria grabbed the target from a distance of 10km, and the Whirlwind-1 supersonic missiles were launched from 8km.

According to the missiles from Mi-28M, which is expected in the troops with 2018year, "Tass reports with reference to the general designer of the enterprise Valery Kashin:

"We are modernizing the Ataka and Chrysanthema missiles to provide a higher range of detection, capture and destruction of targets specifically for Mi-28NM. A new missile system adapts to the complex of guided missile weapons on board the helicopter, "Kashin said."

After the modernization, the range of ATAD ATAKA will increase from six to eight kilometers, the source told the agency.

While the Ka-52, after the modernization of the anti-tank complex, launches the Chrysanthemum missiles from a range to 20km, the Mi-28M will have an "Attack" ATGM range from six kilometers to eight. " Frankly: "Not a lot!". For modern warfare, this is not a complex, but eyewash, because NATO tanks, which have already surrounded us from all sides, have an air defense range much farther than Soviet 40 tanks that were destroyed by KA-52 helicopters in Palmyra.

Itself-coaxial helicopters leave behind the firm "Kamov" remembering that the ingenious designer Sergei Viktorovich Mikheev did not give mediocre technique and that's the proof of B-100.

Building a future helicopter model

"In 1975-76. As part of the research on the concept of promising combat helicopters, a B-100 rotor wing design with a transverse rotor arrangement and a propulsive propeller at the rear, between the two-tail-shaped tail plume, was developed (in Kamow) Two AI-20D gas turbine engines, which drive all three screws through the transmission, should be located in the center of a high-lying, high-lengthening wing. The combat load in 3000 kg was distributed over 8 suspension points under the wing and fuselage. The crew consisted of two people - a pilot and an armament operator, which included guided and unguided air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles, bombs, cannon-mounted containers, etc. It was assumed that with a combat load in 3000 kg it will be able to fly at a speed of 450 km / h to a height of up to 6500 m and have a range of 700 km.

The project, distinguished by a high degree of novelty of technical solutions and extraordinary high performance, was presented to the customer in 1975. But, although it was highly appreciated, it was not realized, mainly because of the unsatisfactory mass-dimensional characteristics of the devices of such a scheme. "

Impressive is not only high speed, but also the range with combat load in 3000. - 700km and, of course, the ceiling in 6500.

And as for the "unsatisfactory mass-dimensions" - it's just another far-fetched! But how they were needed in Syria, where the attack helicopters operate according to the scheme worked out by the army pilots-testers BUG (Combat Strike Group) in Chechnya on Ka-50 helicopters "Black Shark", i.e. go out on the target, which was previously reconnoitered by unmanned aerial vehicles, planes, from the Cosmos.

The Ka-52 helicopter proved to be an excellent combat helicopter in Syria!

“He said that the Ka-52 helicopter is of very good quality. “The Syrian campaign showed that it is one of the most sought-after and best helicopter gunships,” said Yuri Borisov (Deputy Defense Minister. July 1 2016, AEX.RU). We wish good luck to both of our design bureaus, and our combat pilots to transfer from the pro-old “Mi” junk to new, high-speed and reliable helicopters, and with a large power reserve, like the B-100 or the Black Shark!
