South Korean marines received the first domestic-made helicopters


Both cars were built in 2017 year and passed an extensive test program, including on the ships of the South Korean Navy, including the universal landing ship Dokdo.

Total Navy ordered 30 such helicopters, which must be delivered before 2023 year.

“The transfer of two MUH-1 helicopters also marked the revival of its own aviation Marine Corps of South Korea. The South Korean Marines had their own aviation (in the form of light aircraft) from 1958 to 1973, but later this aircraft component was transferred to the army aviation, ”reads the publication.

It is reported that MUH-1 for the Marine Corps differs from the army by “marinating” equipment and systems, as well as equipping with ballonet for the possibility of landing on water.

According to the author, the helicopter is capable of carrying up to 15 infantrymen (the actual full-time capacity is nine infantrymen and two airborne arrows).

On the basis of the MUH-1 KAI, a shipboard anti-submarine version is also being developed, and the South Korean Navy is considering the possibility of purchasing 40 of such helicopters in the future.

        hi Hi Pash.
        "Solyanka national team" fellow :
        The development of the KUH-1 Surion multipurpose helicopter with a maximum takeoff weight of up to 8,7 tons was carried out by KAI with the participation of the Defense Research Agency of the South Korean Ministry of Defense and the South Korean Aviation Research Institute KARI, together with the European association EADS Eurocopter (now Airbus Helicopters) as part of the Korea Helicopter Project - Korea Utility Helicopter (KHP-KUH) under a June 2006 agreement worth 1,3 trillion won ($ 1,17 billion). According to the agreement, the share of Airbus Helicopters in the project was 30% at the six-year R&D stage and 20% at the first 10-year stage of serial production. Airbus Helicopters was responsible for the development of the entire helicopter carrier system and flight control systems, and in fact, apparently, determined the overall appearance a machine that looks like a slightly smaller version of the Puma and Super Puma helicopters. The first prototype of the Surion helicopter, manufactured by KAI at the Sacheon facility, made its first flight on March 10, 2010, and by September 2010, four flight prototypes had already been built. The helicopter uses two Hanwha Techwin (former Samsung Techwin) T700-ST-701K turboshaft engines (licensed version of the General Electric T700-GE-701C engine) with a maximum power of 1855 hp each. from.

    South Koreans really have a developed industry. Therefore, it is not surprising that they made a helicopter.
