An-124 - the resumption of Ukrainian-Russian cooperation !?

51


14 June 2012 of the year between Ukraine and Russia, a protocol was signed, according to which both parties intend to resume mass production of An-124 aircraft before the end of 2012. The signing of this document was the result of a ten-day meeting of the commission on Ukrainian-Russian cooperation, which is part of the Interstate Commission.

Dmitry Kolesnikov, who is the chairman of the state agency for managing state corporate rights and property, announced the plans of the two states.

It should be noted that the beginning of the summer of this year was already marked by the presence of certain prospects. So, the Ukrainian aviation industry, after long and difficult negotiations with Russian aircraft builders, reached certain agreements. At the same time, more or less clear answers were received to the most pressing questions regarding the An-70 (military transport aircraft), as well as on the An-124 (unique transport aircraft).

Interest in the joint construction of aircraft resumed almost a field of an entire year of calm. Back in the early spring of last year, the United Aircraft Corporation and the Antonov State Aircraft Concern signed an agreement on the sale and purchase of 50 percent of the authorized capital of UAC - Civil Aircraft, on the basis of which it was planned to create a joint venture UAC - Antonov over time. At that time, the deal was clearly political in nature, since the prime ministers of two states, N. Azarov and V. Putin, were present at its signing.

At first, the Russian side wanted to acquire 51 a percentage of the shares of the Ukrainian concern Antonov, which would make it possible to virtually completely control the intellectual property of the Ukrainian side. It is clear that many representatives of Ukraine did not arrange such an outcome of events, therefore, the parties did not succeed in reaching an agreement.

The next attempt was made in May 2011, when a group of KLA leaders headed by M. Pogosyan arrived in the Ukrainian capital. Then, according to unofficial information, a proposal was made to the management of the Ukrainian company regarding the transfer of a certain share of the capacity of the Voronezh and Ulyanovsk aircraft manufacturing plants to control the future joint venture. In exchange, the Antonov concern should have transferred the power and intellectual property of the design bureau to the control of the joint venture. However, such a proposal was extremely doubtful for the Ukrainian side, since the plant is a single whole, and it is not possible to divide and moreover transfer certain plants to the control of another enterprise.

And at the end of May this year, during a field meeting of the interstate commission, in which S. Naryshkin (speaker of the State Duma of Russia), V. Litvin (chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine), as well as representatives of departments and ministries that are directly associated with aviation industry, it was decided to jointly produce the An-70 and An-124 Ruslan. Until 2030, it is planned to build 150 models of the first type and about 50 of the second.

According to the head of the United Aircraft Building Corporation M.Pogosyan, who spoke at the meeting, starting from now, and up to 2030, it is planned to send approximately 75 An-124 only for modernization and repair. Of these, about 40 percent belongs to the Russian military department. In addition, it is planned not only to carry out repair and modernization works, but also to resume the production of Ruslan - up to 2030, about 45-50 units. He also clarified that the main customers of the aircraft are the Ukrainian and Russian military ministries.

But these are far-reaching plans. As for the closer prospects, then, according to Lieutenant-General V.Kachalkin, commander of the Russian military transport aviation, during 2014-2020 the Russian side should receive 60 military-transport An-70. This year it is planned to complete the research and experimental design. Thus, a new tactical-operational aircraft will be created, which will be designed to perform military tasks. Regarding An-124, it is predicted that 2020 units of various modifications of this model will be obtained by 25.

At the same time, the Russian military transport aircraft will not acquire foreign aircraft, since the samples of the joint Ukrainian-Russian production fully satisfy the requirements of the Russian military.

Such statements are heavy. Recall that the project regarding the production of An-124 was resumed in 2009 year. In this process, D. Medvedev played an active role, who then held the post of head of state, and who instructed the government to contribute to the state armaments program the purchase of 20 Ruslan. At about the same time, a statement was made that it was planned to resume the production of these cargo aircraft, which, by the way, are the largest vehicles of this class. In addition to military interest, the interests of civilian carriers, who have declared their desire to purchase 60 An-124, will also be taken into account.

After the meeting, Russian experts said that the majority of potential customers are waiting for a clear response from the Russian military department regarding An-124. And the decision to resume the joint Ukrainian-Russian production Ruslan is really a principled state position, expressed besides quantitatively. The main condition that was set by the Russian United Aircraft Corporation was that a contract with the military should be made for a relatively large batch of aircraft, because according to the project, with an increase in payload to 150 tons, the profitability of the development of the Ruslan can be achieved with minimum order in 40 machines. Thus, if we are talking about 50 An-124, then this is quite a satisfactory figure.

If we talk about An-70, then the solution of issues has come to the final stage. As you know, even in 2006, the implementation of this project was threatened with termination, since V. Mikhailov, being at that time commander-in-chief of the Russian air force, stated that the army does not need such a model of cargo transport plane, and that it is preferable for her use of modernized IL-76. At this point in time, these statements are recognized as erroneous, and the Russian-Ukrainian program for the joint production of An-70 received further development.

It is necessary to note the fact that the Russian side is extremely interested in the development of its military transport aviation. This is evidenced by the statements of D. Rogozin, made by him in the late spring of this year that the production of military transport vehicles will be separated into a separate system, which will be engaged in the production of almost all transport aircraft models, including the An-70 and An- 124. The only exception is IL-96.

Recall, until recently, the United Aircraft Building Corporation had four structures for the production of aircraft, depending on the purpose. At the same time, most of the revenue went to military aviation (80 percent). Approximately 15 percent was received by civil aviation, 5 percent of profit accounted for approximately in equal shares on special and transport aviation.

The fact that the structure of the UAC was not provided for the structure of military transport aviation, is understandable, since over the past year only two IL-76 was put into operation. But after signing the protocol, the situation is predicted to change radically. In addition to IL-76, An-124 will be produced in Ulyanovsk, and An-70 in Voronezh.

It should be noted that there are already certain changes in both projects. So, in June 2012 of the year, a number of the most pressing issues regarding the resumption of joint production have already been scheduled.

If we talk about projects in general, it is obvious that the scheme of their implementation is exactly the same as it was proposed several years ago. In Ukraine, a small part of the aircraft will be produced for joint projects, as well as components for modernized machines, all the main production will be carried out in Russia. Thus, the Ukrainian Motor Sich will produce D-27 engines for An-70, which, starting from 2013, will be produced 12 units. Gradually, the pace will increase.

In addition, the D-18T engines, which are used in the An-124, will be produced at the same plant.

Thus, a simple conclusion suggests itself, the most promising joint Ukrainian-Russian projects with respect to military transport aviation are more profitable for the Russian Ministry of Defense, since the Ukrainian side needs a very small proportion of aircraft vehicles. But at the same time, there is a real opportunity over time to enter the Asian market and receive significant profits, since the level of purchases of military equipment there is developing much faster.

But while the project exists only on paper. And it will remain there until the parties can agree on production and financial differences. Otherwise, the real union and the creation of a joint Ukrainian-Russian aircraft building enterprise will remain only a dream. And no meetings will be able to solve any commissions.

    I hope that this time we will turn from talking to concrete cases and all these plans will not remain. But in Russia’s society with its area, it’s extremely dangerous to have virtually dying aviation.

    PS One more question excites me whether Poghosyan started it just to take intellectual property for himself, and he does not give a damn about the production of any Anovs.

        Most likely Poghosyan will push through the super-project for 100-150 places. Talk about this is already underway. And MS-21 is almost a screwdriver assembly. Of the control systems - only self-propelled guns seem to be ours, and everything else is French and Germans.

          Do not exaggerate. Russian on the MC-21 - aerodynamic design, CMS, hydraulic system, CCD, landing gear, fuselage and wing (including mechanization), engine (and PD-14 is by no means “prototype”, as you say, it’s already being tested - http: // pmz.ru/pr/news/1423/). The volume of our own Russian developments in no way allows us to call the MC-21 production a "screwdriver assembly."

            I guess I agree with you. All the same, it’s not Super .., but it’s not yet a real engine in tests. And, knowing the PMZ, I can assume that it will not be soon.
            An example is the PS-90 of various modifications. A good motor, but how much trouble the operators have with it. Examples: Red Wings (recently won the trial against PMZ), Kubana de Aviation - no spare parts and units overdue.

                So far Boeing has not agreed. Poghosyan is trying to build a "new" plane with the Italians, but .... It seems that we are talking about a joint venture with the Italians. Therefore, the MS-21 is neither wobbly nor roll.

            Initially, Square was planning to build this aircraft together with Airbus. The French received technical documentation and simply refused to continue to work with Ukraine. So the A400 was born.

              Thanks for the info. Here is also a quote:

              "Despite the obvious loss of the European transport company in price and technical performance, the European Union continues to rely on the A400M for political reasons to the detriment of the Ukrainian AN-70.

              The European transport aircraft A400M "Grizzly" has begun to be assembled in series - reports Defense News from London. The dear child of the Airbus concern will roll off the assembly line as a series in 2012. At least, this is what the manufacturers themselves hope for, suggesting that four cars will be produced this year. And in early 2013, the first aircraft will enter service with the French Air Force - such a hope was expressed by representatives of Airbus Military.

              In the future, Airbus plans to produce 5 transporters every 2 months

              However, it is possible that a competitor to the Ukrainian AN-70 will face another delay - an export credit agreement, has not yet been signed by two countries participating in the project - Turkey and the UK. Although, according to the representative of the concern, this issue is already on the verge of solution and is not a problem. The key was the approval of the program by France and Germany. A loan of 1,5 billion euros should be additional funding for Airbus, which will be repaid through future export deliveries of the transporter.

              The program for the creation and launch of the A400M has been repeatedly disrupted due to technical problems and the constant need for additional funding. So in addition to the initial 20 billion euros allocated for the project, the Airbus concern requested an additional 5 billion.

              The creation of the aircraft continues solely for political reasons, because its competitor AN-70 noticeably surpasses the A400M in carrying capacity and is capable of transporting 10 tons more cargo. AN-70 lifts 47 tons of cargo into the air, the cargo compartment volume is 425 cubic meters. m. while the European transport has a limit of 37 tons with a cargo compartment of 340 cubic meters.

              At the same time, according to experts, the cost of the Ukrainian car is $ 50-70 million against 145 million euros of the cost of the A400M.

              During the development of the project, due to its high cost and constant delays in delivery, orders for A400M were refused by the Air Forces of Italy, Chile and South Africa. "

              How reliable in terms of technical parameters is the An70 really better?

    You might think Russia has a choice ... It seems that there is no one wanting to develop an analogue of An-124 from scratch (well, you can recall how much the much needed SSJ-100 was put on the wing), with such a narrow market - there are not many cars, it's easier and more reasonable to reanimate An-124.

      It was a true project Hercules, in the implementation of which an air launch system capable of outputting something more serious than meteorological satellites - the profit would be beyond. And he could transport more Mriya (450 tons, if I am not mistaken) Only the civil aviation industry from its implementation would be neither warm nor cold ...

    Something about Voronezh and An-70 .... Someone Medvedev D.N. being in Kazan, he mentioned that a new plant, or an An-70 production workshop, would be built at KAPO. Somehow we have to decide on the issue of production. After all, the numbers are already flickering 60 cars, 100 cars ....

        Hello!!
        In Voronezh, documentation has already been prepared. Now the guys scratch their turnips, they don’t understand whether to hand over the documentation or not. They already had similar things in transport Il. Already the slipway prepared and repelled the entire project!

    Well, like a swan, cancer and pike. So they will never agree, while they pull the blanket, industry will die. And with it the problem itself will disappear. And everyone will remain white and fluffy. And countries in the fool to the delight of Washington. Sadly ..

        When there is no agreement in the comrades,
        In the mood their business will not go,
        And it will not work out of him, only flour.

    IL-76 (IL-476) and An-70 planes close in carrying capacity, what is the point of producing both? Something I do not understand - can someone tell me.

    Or maybe it was worth leaving the competition to design bureaus and factories, and the buyer (military and airline) would choose what they need. Or create, as planned, two aircraft manufacturing corporations, and not one UAC. Monopolka, of course, is good for concentrating resources, but it also has its drawbacks. And Yushchenko and Yulia greatly spoiled Russian-Ukrainian projects in the field of aviation: many of our decisions to terminate cooperation were made for political reasons.

    According to the head of the United Aircraft Corporation, M. Poghosyan, who spoke at the meeting from now on, and until 2030, it will take a lot of effort to cut the next 7 billions of green, and negotiations with foreign subcontractors are already underway for building villas in Italy and Spain wassat

    with Ukraine, nothing will come of it, we are only wasting time. it’s necessary to build airplanes on your own, to buy intellectual property from those who are independent, to steal to the edge, I think there are many who want to sell. Ukraine (the elite) is not interested in positive cooperation, Western sabotage is also not needed, powerful competitors are not needed for the West. West-Ukraine promises joint projects and they are seen on this.

    It seems that Iran has bought or wanted to buy a transport AN, while Lebedev's company "Red Wings" is buying passenger ones.

    If the production of An-124 is resumed, then the mobility of our army will increase by an order of magnitude, and this means that our troops can be delivered to almost anywhere in the world.
