UEC: RD-33MK engines on MiG-35 have worked properly

The data from the recording equipment of the MiG-35 showed that the RD-33MK engines during the first flight tests of the fighter worked out normally, reports RIA News report of the press service of the United Engine Corporation (UEC).

Recall that the first flight tests of the MiG-35 passed 26 January in Lukhovitsy. Upon their completion, Mikhail Belyaev, a senior test pilot at RSK MiG, stated at the end of the flight that “an accurate assessment of the performance of all the onboard systems will be determined after processing the data of the control recording equipment”.

“The RD-33MK turbojet engines, produced by VV Chernyshev MMP AO and developed by Klimov AO, worked without comment during the first test flight of a new multifunctional MiG-35 fighter in Lukhovitsy near Moscow. This is evidenced by the results of post-flight processing of materials of the aircraft’s recording equipment ", - says the release of the JDC.

It is reported that the engines are made in 2016 g, maintenance of their operation, incl. on trials, provided a team of representatives of JSC "MMP named after V.V. Chernyshev.

Enterprise director Amir Khakimov stressed:
Our specialists took part in the preparation of the aircraft for the presentation and execution of aerobatic figures. The flight went smoothly, the flight mission was completed in full, no complaints about the work of the aircraft’s power plant were detected by the test pilots.

Help press service: "RD-33MK - modification of the basic engine RD-33, subjected to serious refinement. Its feature is increased traction. By increasing the air flow rate and the gas temperature in front of the turbine, the power of the RD-33MK increased by 7%. The engine is equipped with a digital automatic control system. At the same time, all the advantages of the basic model are preserved, in particular, the absence of restrictions on aircraft control in flight and a high level of resistance to external disturbances. The RD-33MK is installed on the MiG-29K / KUB and MiG-35 fighters. "

      don’t worry, for 35 years of operation of the Mig-29 everything has been worked out there like a clock

        Surely, the differences from the MiG-29 in the filling are significant

    Recently, there have been many publications about the MiG-35, which hindered its development earlier. Presentation to Putin? Specialists ay ...! We are waiting for a competent comment.

        The unnecessity of the Russian Aerospace Forces aircraft with such performance characteristics .. They are now being made for three reasons,
        1 Export (it is impossible to sell without arming the country of origin of the manufacturer)
        2 Sukhoi’s inability to increase production volumes (plants are clogged with orders and even PAK-FA on the horizon)
        3 Do not let the MIG KB bend completely and lose the production base (directly to the first point)

    So are they with a deflected thrust vector or not? And is there a phased antenna?

      7% of profitability will fly out in an extra second of afterburner.

        7% of profitability will fly out in an extra second of afterburner.

        -What if?
        -In afterburning mode, fuel consumption increases by a maximum of 2 times, that is
        from your statement it follows that there is enough fuel for 11 minutes of flight. Ehsperd?

          Ktor 2 February 2017 18: 41
          2 times? Actually, you need to clarify what parameter. For the Mach number 0,6, too?))))))))

            Ktor 10 February 2017 18: 08
            Not quite correct remark. For example, afterburning at 11 km requires less fuel per minute than at an altitude of 1 km. Even more than the above number of times. If we are talking about the maximum possible afterburner mode (we introduce the conditional name: the maximum from SFP) at high altitudes - the answer is yes. Only, unfortunately, there are problems with such modes. I do not think that MiG engines are an exception ......

      So are they with a deflected thrust vector or not?

      RD-33MK can be equipped with a nozzle with a deflected thrust vector (OVT) developed at the design bureau of the enterprise

        Well, yes, beetle-A with AFAR.
        This is common knowledge.
        But for some reason, some ask, while others answer "If".

        That's how we live....

    At one time, Comrade Stalin went on to open a large number of aviation design bureaus, whose specialization often overlapped. After him, a number of design bureaus were redesigned or merged with others. In our "interesting time" this process continued on the principle of "who first got up - he slippers." Poghosyan was the first to stand up and all orders went to his company, even a passenger plane. And others have to survive on enthusiasm, for which, unfortunately, now they pay nothing. Yak managed to push through the wonderful and long-suffering Yak-130, and now the MIG seems to have achieved its goal. But knowing the UAC lobby, the main hope of the Migovites for third-party orders. And this business is not quick and troublesome. I would like to wish them good luck!

    29th from Kursk came to us, then Sushki from Baltimore. The 29th in my opinion will be faster. So what’s the 35th they’re taking into service, we need such a plane

      Su and MiG are two different planes. At one time in the Union and the states there was a concept according to which a heavy and light machine should coexist together. But the realities of the time unfortunately gave the way to the Sukhov machine. MiG hope will find application first in Russia, and then to the rest of the market. The main thing is that it does not work out as always - to arm the rest of the world, and yourself for the rest.
      And the car is beautiful, I hope the potential is good.
