After reports from China that one of the stages of testing of an amphibious aircraft was completed, in our country they began to talk about readiness to revive a previously existing Soviet project. RIA News With reference to the press service of the United Aircraft Corporation reports on work on the project to resume production of the A-40 Albatros aircraft.


In Russia, it declared its readiness to revive the A-40 Albatross project. The answer to China?


Such a statement appeared before the beginning of the exhibition “Gidroaviason-2018”.

Previously, informed sources reported that the A-40 "Albatross" will replace the amphibious aircraft Be-12 by the year 2020.

The first flight of the world's largest amphibious aircraft took place in the USSR in 1986 year. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the project was actually frozen. In 2012, Russia announced its final closure. However, in 2016, statements from individuals in the aircraft industry and the military sphere began to appear that it was time for Albatross to set back on the path to the implementation of the previously created project.

For your information:
A-40 - multi-purpose aircraft. The maximum take-off weight of A-40 is 90 tons. Crew - from 4 to 8 people (depending on version). Maximum speed - 800 km / h. Patrol time - up to 12 h. Practical range - 4 thousand. Km. Seaworthiness (wave height) - 2,2 m. Combat load - up to 6,5 tons of various weapons, including (primarily) anti-submarine. On the plane set about one hundred and fifty world records.

              Getting a minus for serving a headscarf for the snotty is a good sign. good

              It’s a good thing to start the production of a new and necessary aircraft for the country. I wish good luck to the manufacturers and a large portfolio of orders in addition.

              Nostalgic for communism, answer why are you so annoyed by any information about the start or resumption of production of goods and equipment?

You don’t see, perhaps, our government has seven Fridays every week, the decision changes spontaneously, constant strains like "we will do, we will not do, we will not do" .. first of all, those who are engaged in production are very much hampered work! Because now they started doing it, and tomorrow they stopped work !!! The country's authorities have no firmness in decision-making !!! Is my position clear to you ???

          The problem is that for a quarter of a century, as we have no monstrous Soviet shipping companies, defective managers have sold everything they can. There, for the Syrian express, I had to buy junk from the Turks.
          The fleet has only one ship, from which it is possible to lift and to which it is possible to land the KVVP aircraft. But none of the sailors will allow replacing the air group of full-fledged classic multipurpose vehicles with undersized KVVP with their radius and combat load. The Navy buried the idea of ​​Ustinov and Amelko with great difficulty 35 years ago "and let's arm 1143.5 with Yakovlev machines".

          Let me remind you that 1143.5 in the order of development was developed just for the Yak-141 - and only the appearance of the latest Su-27 and MiG-29 put an end to this undertaking.

It would be better to do it more frankly - so that people themselves save their pensions instead of the state. At the very least, this booth would have stopped when the pension money was pulled aside, and then they say that it is not enough. hi

            The A-40, in the first place, is not built to extinguish fires (which does not prevent it from doing this in large bodies of water), but for anti-submarine missions, patrolling the far sea zone and rescue operations.

              that does not stop him from doing this in large bodies of water

              And if the place of the fire does not have a large body of water with dimensions sufficient to reduce, planing with water intake and climb?
              It is precisely this problem that the Yankees faced: it turned out that Canadian twin-engine boats discharge more water per day than a four-engine monster - despite the fact that the load-bearing capacity of Canadians is several times less. The reason was simple: for Canadians, the requirements for the length of the reservoir were much lower, which means that there was a higher turnover rate - the choice of reservoirs was wider and less shoulder from the point of water intake to the fire.
              Quote: neri73-r
              and for anti-submarine missions,

              What for? Why should a PLO aircraft exchange the payload mass for the mass of the structure required to ensure landing on and taking off from the water? How does the PLO airplane help landing on water? Overshot Gus? Isn’t it easier to load additional RSL in its place?
              In addition, the PLO aircraft should always be in the radio communication zone with the RSL exhibited by it in the patrol area. EMNIP, communication is in the VHF range - so it is highly not recommended to go down the plane, because it is a horizon.
              Quote: neri73-r
              patrolling the far sea zone

              Again we exchanged the mass of fuel for the mass of the structure. What does not suit an ordinary passenger plane as a base for a patrol officer? He certainly has fuel efficiency and payload mass brought to the maximum - no one needs swallows and lightweights. smile

              Salvation most often occurs in a storm, or at least SMU. A seaplane may simply not land on water.

      And the Ministry of Defense would not mind having such a "universal".

      We worked on extinguishing both the Be-200 and the Il-76 tanker, there is a lot of noise on TV, colorful shots, but it’s not good enough, often just a negative option, such as the dissolution of the fire due to the fault of large aviation (real cases), inability to work at high speeds in conditions of severe smoke in the area of ​​fires (they really interfered with the work of small aircraft in servicing fires, but at the same time they could not even decrease due to smoke). But nothing about it! Well, the image of the state in the person of the Ministry of Emergencies will suffer ...
      The most important negative point is the overspending of funds allocated for extinguishing forest fires and air patrolling. After the end of the spring fire hazard period, flights to the air patrol stopped almost completely due to lack of funds ... okay in the summer, the rains were lucky, so to speak, but the autumn began, the taiga was drying up, the foliage, the grass withered ... but there was nothing to put out ... And again lies from the leadership of the region ...
      Aleksey RA correctly expressed about the Canadian seaplanes, such for extinguishing forest fires and it is necessary to produce. Large airfields are not required for basing, as for the Be-200 and Il-76, selection of reservoirs for water intake is much easier due to fewer restrictions. Well, much more can be written

      I don’t know how it is in the country as a whole, but in Altai most of the vocational schools and technical schools are already closed. From a dozen years ago, to make any part of metal was not difficult. There were plenty of turners ready for exclusive. And now even a normal welder is hard to find. Maybe at the factories that have not yet closed and remained training centers, but overall the picture is sad. I have no doubt that there are smart heads ready to give new ideas, but with qualified personnel, sadness is universal.

        Training shops are a non-core asset, they were thrown off a long time ago, alas. And vocational schools / vocational schools were dispersed. For some time they went to the Soviet "reserve" of personnel - in Soviet times, schoolchildren underwent training at "patron" factories and state farms, receiving a working specialty. Now this resource has dried up.

        PJSC Taganrog Aviation Scientific and Technical Complex named after G.M.Beriev (TANTK) signed a state contract with the Russian Ministry of Defense on May 23, 2013 for the delivery of two Russian Be-200ES aircraft and four modified Be-200PS aircraft (without function) to the Russian Navy fire extinguishing) with a total value of 8,4 billion rubles. Delivery was supposed to be made under the terms of the contract in 2014-2016, however, the construction of these aircraft (serial numbers 03-09, 03-10 and from 03-51 to 03-54), according to known data, did not advance beyond the initial stage. It was reported that back in 2016, the Russian Ministry of Defense suspended the implementation of this contract.

        And it all ended up that the MO terminated the contract and in court recovered money from the plant.
        The Moscow Arbitration Court upheld the claim of the Ministry of Defense of Russia to recover from the Taganrog Aviation Scientific and Technical Complex named after G.M.Beriev as an advance payment of more than 6,726 billion rubles.

    All the same, the A-40 was washed down as an anti-submarine amphibian and is not currently needed in its original form. But to create a transport platform based on it with a bias for search-and-rescue operations, this is it.

      For this, they made the Be200 .... and taking into account the range of modern medium-haul liners of the B-737 type, why do you need to land on water (this applies to the Russian Federation)? Now it is not the Soviet economy and Military liners need to be unified as much as possible with civilian ones (where possible). And this is the presence of trained pilots, Engines, avionics, maintenance.

      The Ministry of Emergencies has a Be-200. And IL-76.
      As the practice of the same USA has shown, too large seaplanes to extinguish forest fires are ineffective: few suitable water platforms for water intake + problems with maneuvering and accurate targeting at low altitudes.
      And marine rescuers immediately have a question with seaworthiness and the maximum wave height during landing. Because you have to save in the ocean and on a rampage. For rescuers, an aviation complex with a resettable boat is better suited.

    It is amusing to read about the desire to resume production of the 32 aircraft of a summer prescription. It is as if in 1970 the year seriously thinking about resuming the production of IL-2.
    At one time, he was specially interested in the topic of this aircraft. Why should a sea plane be an amphibian? To land on the water. This should give some serious advantages over a conventional aircraft. Since this is primarily an anti-submarine aircraft, accordingly, due to the ability to land on water, it should be much more efficient than a conventional PLO aircraft. However, as it turns out, landing on water gives nothing in this regard.
    Moreover, even such an amphibian can land on the water not always and not everywhere. For example, in the Northern Fleet, weather suitable for landing occurs at sea for about 2 months of the year - the rest of the time it is simply dangerous to land. In the Pacific and Baltic, this will be 4-5 months of the year. On the Black Sea a little more than six months. That is, where the most dangerous theaters from the point of view of an underwater threat, our plane can not land on the water most of the year. And sowing does not gain any significant advantages, but even loses them. At least a plane in the air can move quickly. And when he sits in the water, he loses this opportunity, and does not gain anything new, since he does not have sonar, comparable in capabilities to a full-fledged ship.
    As for the rescuer, disasters at sea, as a rule, occur in weather conditions in which it’s difficult to fly, and even lands on water - all the more so. Even the usual IL-76, which in Soviet times had a modification with a landing rescue boat, is much more likely to help.
    Instead of spraying forces on such projects, it would be better to drive the Su-57 series and other aircraft.

    What I can agree with Sergei Vitalyevich (ANCIENT) is that it is a mess. And often in the heads. We will do, we will not do. It seems that such a term as long-term planning simply fell out of the heads of corporate leaders.
    At one time, I came across a book called "The Last Giants of the Empire". The book is about the battleships of the "Empress Maria" class and the battlecruisers of the "Ishmael" class. The book is quite interesting. And among the mass of graphs, drawings and drawings there was something from the "accursed heritage of tsarism." Namely, a table on the planned dates for the laying, launching of these and promising ships and the schedule for the decommissioning of obsolete equipment. Most notably in the table, it covered the period from 1912 to 1930 (THIRTY).
    What am I doing. And what about the fact that you can look at least 10 years ahead or have already forgotten how? If you need to create some kind of aircraft (a tank, a rocket, something else) - create it. At the R&D level, no one will say a word to you. Build cooperation, "push" subcontractors to research new engines, etc.
    And it turns out, as in a proverb - GO TO HUNT - DOG TO FEED.

    Created before the collapse of the USSR, this Be-42 amphibian - excellent. After some time, it became clear that in such a dimension it was not particularly needed. Began to make the BE-200. Fine. But at least for the future it would be possible to understand that Ukraine is a cut-off chunk, that any nationalist who has come to power will by all means put sticks in the wheels of joint cooperation. And so it happened.
    1. Middle-class and passenger transport aircraft for the MVL and medium-length lines were produced in Ukraine.
    2. Engines for many aircraft - also in the same place
    3. Engines for ships - again in Ukraine.
    4. Shipyards, where our cruisers and ANKr were built - in the same place

    What was difficult to predict? Why did such an industry as the Strategic Missile Forces (it’s clear that this is not an industry, but nonetheless) included the chuyka and for several years was able to recreate in Russia, with Russian cooperation, the critical technologies that were being made in Ukraine then. What prevented this from being done in other areas? But nothing. But if it is not the achievements of our own industry that are put at the forefront, but how to present this to the electorate, it will be so

    When several years ago Motor Sich refused to supply D-436 engines for BE-200 amphibians, ours were able to adapt a French engine for installation on it. Excellent. So? It was impossible to create in parallel your own similar engine - in order to make such a decision that you need to be a GENIUS ????
    Until the last few days, the BE-200 satisfied everyone. Yes, twice as easy as the BE-42, but with approximately the same range characteristics. But then there was a surprise. The Chinese have created the world's largest amphibious aircraft. And then they remembered that the biggest was always our BE-42 (A-40). Urgently, to surpass China, it is necessary to recreate the production of A-40. Do you need it? Maybe instead of releasing two dozen A-40s, it is better to intensify production, while developing both its engine building and increasing the output of the now-produced BE-200? Or will we measure who has more ????

      For the Strategic Missile Forces, they were able to localize only the production of "primers", which was already for the most part on the territory of the RSFSR. The production of the rest of ICBMs, tied to Ukraine, died with the collapse of the Union. Even the P-39, which was formally produced in the Russian Federation, could not be saved - the first stage was made in cooperation with Yuzhmash. The localized Bark never passed the test. And pr.941 was taken out to suck. BZHRK also died due to the impossibility of transferring the production of its missiles to the territory of the Russian Federation.
      It is precisely because of the problems with the localization of production that the development of our ICBMs went along such an intricate path - when, instead of creating or developing full-fledged initially heavy solid-propellant missiles (a repetition of the same RT-23 UTTH), new and improved, improved and weighted versions of the Topol appeared, which, by the method of successive approximations, was sculpted, if not a heavy, then an average ICBM.

      So the Be-200 has problems not only with the engine .. it is still experienced and is only now becoming serial. And the problem is with the Taganrozh plant, which can only do them piece by piece. Of all the projects being revived in terms of production of SSZH, 30 units / year .... IL-476 - 3 pieces this year, at 19m - 15-18 pieces .... with the rest of the projects so far - the unknown.

    In principle, despite the fact that there is no base for anti-submarine today (IL-114, it’s still small), this is a good option. If only, once again, they did not change their minds.
