Ministry of Defense: the new engine for the White Swan will be more economical by 10%

21
Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Yuri Borisov, as part of checking the progress of the state defense order, visited PJSC Kuznetsov in Samara, which is a leading enterprise in Russia for the development, production, technical support in the operation and repair of gas turbine aviation, liquid propellant rocket engines.


Ministry of Defense: the new engine for the White Swan will be more economical by 10%


This enterprise repairs engines for long-range aircraft Tu-160 (NK-32), Tu-95 (NK-25), Tu-22M3 (NK-12) and creates a new version of the NK-32 engine for the Tu -160M2 "White Swan" in a new look.

In the new look, it (the engine) will be more economical, per cent on 10, which will make it possible to increase the range of a strategic bomber by about a thousand kilometers
- said Borisov during his visit to PJSC "Kuznetsov".

He noted that in the 2014 year before the Samara plant them. Kuznetsova was tasked with not only reproducing the engine that had not been produced for a long time, but also to improve its performance.

At the enterprise, Borisov got acquainted with the production process, inspected the construction of the second series NK-32 aircraft engines, and also discussed with the management of the United Engine Corporation, which includes Kuznetsov, the technical re-equipment of the plant.

    they would put a couple of nuclear engines and fly in unmanned mode for a week or a month along the border of the North Pole, and would land on two conventional engines - there would be 200% savings - and the pin would have forgotten what a dream would be and McCain would have immediately shot himself

      Good news, but didn’t he say anything about the deadlines? I hope not from 2025 of the year we will begin to produce these engines? And then we have everything as a new current is mandatory late. request
      And if it was possible to increase the performance characteristics of NK-32, how could this be possible with other engines of this plant? I think for the Tu-22 + 10% to the range the same would not be superfluous?

      Now take a calculator and calculate how much such a Swan with nuclear dvigunami will cost then ...
      And then think about what will happen if there are 30 such nuclear strategists, namely, where all the other defense projects will be.
      strategic bomber range of about a thousand kilometers

      Given the new arsenal for Swans and Bears, range is not so important here, but profitability is a very good indicator.

        range is not that important

        Well then, it’s more likely then that it’s not about a longer flight distance due to the greater efficiency of the engines, but a longer time of duty in the air

          longer air duty

          In! This is what you should pay attention to. The longer the time, the less steam will be needed. Here voiced above:

          And then think about what will happen if there are 30 such nuclear strategists, namely, where all the other defense projects will be.

          My opinion (it may be fundamentally wrong): If he keeps a shift for a week, then 4 pairs will be needed, - 8 boards. This is provided that each crew flies on its own. And so, two pairs - 4 sides. But not at all 30.
          Come on six sides?

    On the Tu-95 were always NK-12. Either the author is not aware, or did not delve into the fact that he reposted.

      True ... but ... on the modification of the Tu-95MSM, there are dviguny-NK-12MVM with screws AV-60T. And these are slightly different carriages than the NK-12.
      And about the NK-25 ... its carriers are Tu-22M3 and Tu-22MR. And he was tested on the Tu-22M2E, in 1974. In 1975-1976, tests were carried out on the Tu-144LL. hi

        Weighted screws were also expected for the Tu-95MS. There, it was also implied that the angle of inclination of the stabilizers should be changed during their application.
        And they didn’t let out new engines, a little old people most likely played a prank.

          I have been tormented by one question for a long time - why didn’t we revive the NK-74 engine project? Or did they reanimate and we see his reincarnation ... and secondly, why is the TU-161 project with a hydrogen power plant not considered?

        I know. I simply did not specify the letters, if even the numbers in the article are incorrect. NK-95MV stood on our Tu-12RTs and I honestly don’t know how MVMs differ from MVs. I think that, in principle, the differences are not significant.

      We have enough Chernobyl, yes, but ... And if such planes would fly over neutral waters near the borders of Polosatia!

    The first flight of the TU-160 made in the 81st year I was 3 years old, now almost 40k. Yes, I'm sure the engine has been modified, but sorry for 40 years + 10% to save, very sour.

      No, this is VERY much. This means that the efficiency increased by 10%. Well, how much has the efficiency of piston ICEs grown in 40 years? And almost no matter how much.

      This is quite a lot for myself. It only seems to me that this is not quite a Russian development (I'm talking about a new engine), but rather a Soviet one, namely the NK-74. Perhaps modified, taking into account modern technologies.

        There will be nothing, only repair and improvement due to optimization of management .... Here is the PD line to pull and dream at all, somehow adapt them ....

    For those 22m3 they cannot reproduce the NK-25. And the NK-32 is even more complicated. And such loud statements make. At first the result. And then you can brag. These are two of the most complex engines in the world.

    He worked for three years on scientific research for KNPO Trud - they had an agreement with Belarusians. We developed and supplied the technology of ceramic thermal protection of the most heat-stressed engine parts. Based on the results of bench tests, we received a letter of thanks - the results shocked the factory workers. I would be sincerely glad if the development did not disappear during the turbulent years of perestroika and the Yeltsin administration, but became an analogue for further developments.
