In Zhukovsky completes flight tests after modernization of the next anti-submarine aircraft Il-38N Marine aviation Russian Navy.




The aircraft with the tail number 22 "Viktor Potapov" is a total of the eighth modernized Il-38H, and the second under the contract from 2015.

Comment of the bmpd blog: “Il-38N was named after the naval pilot, aviation commander of the USSR / Russia Navy in 1988-1994, Colonel General of aviation Viktor Potapov (b. 1934). It is worth noting that in 1967-1971 V. Potapov was the first commander of the first 38th separate anti-submarine aviation regiment equipped with IL-24 aircraft fleet, and in fact led the introduction of IL-38 aircraft into the combat structure of naval aviation.

        The car is cool, reliable, beautiful painted .... The platform worked out, trouble-free, will be easy prey to the sea of ​​any wretched marine fighter with a shortened or vertical take-off, what is the use of costs?!? Isn't it better to develop something more modern?

          Thirteenth, your comment is complete nonsense. In the North, when the 38th loops were turning, at least a pair of aircraft on duty from Kilpov stood on the "line". And in order for non-fighters with a shortened or vertical takeoff, it will also have to pant because it is not possible in principle.

          In principle and in reality, it is an anti-submarine aircraft, not a fighter laughing

          That is, to detect and combat submarines and not with fighters.

      The first flight of the IL-18 made during the lifetime of Stalin, though with piston engines.
      Well, the IVS was afraid of a large capacity for that time, they say, if something happens, a lot of people will die immediately.
      Well, in this case, he was wrong, although his opinion may have influenced,
      on designers and they finalized ILYUKH in terms of reliability to perfection.

        Yes, it is definitely! Old cars - and most likely these are all forced temporary measures - to somehow cover the direction

        Most likely. that new options for more modern machines are already being considered

    The glider is amazing. The engines are checked by time. Fuel supply (and, accordingly, the time spent in the air) is not inferior to the Orions; strip limits are not even. Superjets. And to create a fundamentally new car — billions — which still need to be obtained somewhere else (there is not so much money on earth) and time! About 10 years, including fine-tuning the machine itself and the engines! The superjet was originally planned as a passenger And the IL-18 as a multi-purpose (which, incidentally, was typical for the USSR Minaviaprom) And a glider, if you carefully study at least just a layout or drawing from an Internet, looks just like But Fedot- yes not that

    IL-18 is the most beautiful aircraft for its time. True, if you look, the first, and the fourth frames are the good old Douglas DC-3 Dakota. Engines, too, diplomatically say, so what, the Chinese also steal. The first flight of the IL-18th took place on July 4, 1957. All with new success

      Interestingly, this is why the first section of the IL-18 fuselage is similar to the DC-3? Compare the outwardly pure lantern cockpit, also similar? How can one say something about similarity if one plane had a pressurized cabin and the other did not have one? And with the engines you got a little excited. For this aircraft, two types of engine were proposed: NK-4 and AI-20, that is, there was a choice. What are both stolen straight? The whole charm of the IL-38 is that it can solve the tasks with a minimum of costs. We do not have a full-fledged platform for the PLO aircraft now, twin-engine Tu-204 in terms of reliability, so far they do not meet the requirements. It should also be remembered that 40 years of experience in operating the B737 was invested in Poseidon, including the experience of obtaining a certificate for flights according to the ETOPS rules, with a threshold time of 180 minutes. This means that a passenger aircraft has the proven ability to safely fly to an alternate aerodrome at a distance corresponding to a flight time of 180 minutes if one engine fails. We are still behind here.

    My friend serves in Nikolaevka (Primorye), where these birds are based. So he said that when the pilots drove these planes to the factory for repair and modernization, they prayed. Indeed, the very old and dead planes were afraid to crash. And the whole, living Ilov remained there - the cat burst into tears. So a replacement is needed.
