The Defense Ministry will receive the first Mi-38T helicopter at the end of 2018 of the year


Russian Helicopters Holding and representatives of the Russian Ministry of Defense will begin joint testing of the first production Mi-38T helicopter in the second quarter of this year. According to the results of the tests, the transport helicopter Mi-38T will be transferred to the Ministry of Defense in the fourth quarter of 2018.
- reported in the holding.

At the moment, at the Kazan Helicopter Plant there is an aggregate assembly of the first production Mi-38T helicopter.

This modification has significant differences from the basic certified model Mi-38. So, all the units and components in the Mi-38T are Russian-made, installation of communications equipment for military needs and additional fuel tanks to increase the flight range is provided.
- noted in the holding.

The medium multipurpose helicopter Mi-38 occupies a niche between the Mi-8 and the heavy Mi-26 and can be used for the transport of goods and passengers, used as a search and rescue helicopter, as well as for flights over the water surface. The Mi-38T (troop carrier) is the military version of the Mi-38.

The Mi-38T helicopter is equipped with new highly economical TV7-117В engines of domestic production and an integrated digital flight-navigation complex, reports TASS

    There has been something very quiet on this project recently. It seems that everyone has already forgotten about him. The good news is if the deadlines are not shifted “to the right” again.

      Too slowly. They began to design in 1981 and 36 years later they launched it into a series.

    Everything rests on the engine. Klimovtsy TV7-117 will not finish.

    It seemed to me that there was a problem in the class of lighter helicopters. And the Mi-38, almost a classmate of the later modifications of the Mi-17. And the big question is its advantage over them.
    Well, I don’t want to talk about the difficult fate of TV7-117. Although, in connection with the decision to build the IL-114, it may be brought to mind.

      The advantage, at least, is that the Mi-17 is essentially the same Mi-8 with its technologies from the 60s. And to upgrade it infinitely, impossible.

    The thirty-eighth was created, but then we were friends with the West. So lips rolled out to the fact that the market is in demand. But it turned out that these were just fairy tales, so that we could blow our own shit.
    For this reason, Western engines, such as cooperation, were developed.

      All this is understandable. Hi Volodya! Just a question on RV. Why right? Or did they change the direction of rotation?

        Hi!
        Have you forgotten? As we were told, the pulling RV is better than the pushing one.
        Because Mi-2, Mi-8T, Mi-6, Mi-26, Mi-28, PB on the right.
        But it turned out that not only location was important, but also the direction of rotation.
        Therefore, when they made the Mi-8MT, so as not to bother with serious alterations, they simply turned the existing XP-8 to the left, thereby changing the direction of rotation. Mi-24 received this by inheritance; its units were made on the basis of Mi-8.
        And here is Mi-26, Mi-28, Mi-38 from scratch. Therefore, the screw is again on the right, although it rotates along the veil.

            Come on. During the Internet disputes, I looked at the crew instructions more often than during the service.
