Ka-226T vs Fennek: Russia is confident of victory

20

In the coming days, it is expected to sum up a tender for the supply to the Ground Forces and the Indian Air Force 197 observation and reconnaissance helicopters. The test stages have been passed, and consideration of the proposals of the participants has entered the final stage.


Rosoboronexport OJSC expects that the Russian Ka-226T multi-purpose helicopter will win the tender. The competitor of the Russian car is the helicopter AS550 C3 "Fennek" from the company "Eurocopter".


A noticeable advantage of the Russian proposal is its “cumulative” effect: an excellent Ka-226T helicopter is offered with an offset program that should interest the Indian side.

Firstly, Rosoboronexport OJSC, with the participation of Russian Helicopters, proposes, within the framework of this program, to organize the joint production of Ka-226T units and subsystems, with the subsequent adjustment of the assembly of these machines in India.

Secondly, it is proposed to jointly develop new versions of the helicopter.

Thirdly, the proposed program will allow countries that are strategic partners to begin full-scale industrial cooperation in the field of helicopter construction. The large Russian experience in this field, as well as the successful implementation of programs in the field of aviation (licensed production of Su-30MKI, MiG-21 and MiG-27 aircraft in India) are a good basis for the implementation of even the most ambitious ideas.

Russian developers managed to achieve excellent performance of the Ka-226T. Thanks to them, this rotary-wing machine stands out in a number of competitors that are present in the global market, and is optimal for cargo transportation, conducting reconnaissance and search and rescue operations in hard-to-reach areas.

The coaxial scheme of the Ka-226T screws provides a large stock of thrust and a high climb rate, which in turn increases the static ceiling of the car. Aerodynamic symmetry and the absence of cross-links in the control channels greatly simplify piloting the helicopter. This is especially important for low-altitude flights. The maneuverability of the Ka-226T remains high and does not depend on flight speeds. Ka-226T is great for solving problems at high temperatures and in mountainous areas.

The high level of survivability and excellent flight performance of the helicopter are provided by the presence of two engines "Arrius 2G1" produced by the company "Turbomeca". Engines have sufficient power, which is very important when flying in mountainous areas and regions with hot climates. Even in case of failure of one of the engines, the Ka-226T will be able to continue the flight on the second.

Ka-226T showed its best qualities during the evaluation tests conducted in the framework of the tender. These tests showed that the Ka-226T was able to incorporate the best ideas and achievements of the Kamov design school: modularity of the design, allowing the helicopter to be multifunctional, low vibration, simple piloting technology, high reliability, unpretentious operation and flight safety.

    On such a comprehensive solution of the Hindu - be sure to bite! For them, the aspect of licensed production, as well as for the Chinese, is often very prevailing in the approach to the issue of procurement. And here - this ... Immediately and - so much ... Today and - five rubles ... wink

      That's what the French will only say about production somewhere with their engines in a tender with a French helicopter ... belay

      Yes, his Indians need to grab with his legs. This is a doctor, and the police, and even hell knows that, for all occasions, also for small aircraft.
      Himself, would take such!

        Well, actually Eurocopter helicopters were also made in India.

          The French can push that in case of victory, the ka-226 will not supply engines and the Indians will be forced to choose Feneck. I wonder how things are with our VK-800 engine.

      in the meantime:

      General Atomics Predator C Avenger unmanned stealth aircraft completed its first flight. Unlike the first prototype, the new Avenger heavy jet unmanned aircraft modification is 1,2 m longer, which allows to expand the range of weapons used, as well as increase the already considerable fuel supply.


      At the end of last year, the U.S. Air Force announced its intention to use the latest drone in Afghanistan, even before official testing and adoption. The new Predator C Avenger modification is capable of carrying about 1600 kg of payload in the internal compartment and on the underwing pylons, including JDAM bombs with a caliber of 200 to 900 kg.


      Compared to other promising drones, Avenger has several advantages. First of all, it is a proven control system, similar to that used in Predator UAVs, which operate effectively in various regions of the planet. Avenger is also cheap to operate, can take off and land on the deck of aircraft carriers, operate from altitudes up to 16 km. The new drone has a record flight range in excess of 10 thousand km. The UAV is equipped with a 545 kg PW2177B engine with a small infrared signature. In terms of flight duration, the Predator C Avenger is more than 3 times higher than that of the manned strategic bomber B-2 - 20 hours versus 6,5 hours. This unique feature of the new drone allows you to turn an aircraft carrier into a strategic weapon, operating far beyond the boundaries of air defense and anti-ship missiles, including promising ballistic ones.

      Helicopters are certainly good, but it’s high time to pay attention to the UAV area ...

      Vrangel,
      He was not a favorite of MIG, they didn’t even bring a copy to the exhibition and immediately said that there was no radar, they hoped for patronage and long-standing connections, there Indians with rams babos, maybe they will return to this issue, MIG is still cheaper

        They didn’t bring to the exhibition, due to the lack of MIG in the shortlist of the tender. And if you look carefully because of what the whole fuss is, the word "favorite" is highlighted in quotation marks if it tells you something.

    That’s the answer to the question why the Russian-Indian exercises of the armed forces of both countries are resuming again. Ka-226 to everything else, has a modular structure. The back can be removed very quickly and another module can be installed. For example, instead of passenger-sanitary or cargo. I saw this machine on the MAX. Cool little thing. Really cool.

    In this photo you can clearly see that the module can be replaced. A little true, my younger panorama closed.

    We will wait for the tender. Desire is not harmful, but the result does not depend on us. The proposal to the Indians was made very good, but we do not have any classified information.

    This tender will be interesting in that it will determine the future of the project - the Ka-226 already.

    The French will kill the engine, this is definitely - this is their traditional move. And the main thing is that you don’t answer anything - they won’t sell Zenit to the Mistral and the engine for the Superjet ... And the Superjet will be screwed up - already spending $ 5 billion at the moment, without having paid off. A kind of Tu-204SM with American engines in Iran.
