An An-124 Ruslan super-heavy transport aircraft will soon become completely Russian. The development of a deeply modernized An-124-100M aircraft with Russian components is underway at Ilyushin Design Bureau. This was told in an interview with Interfax by the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov.


The deeply modernized An-124 Ruslan will become completely Russian


Since 2017, the Ilyushin Design Bureau has been working on the creation of a deeply modernized super-heavy military transport aircraft An-124-100M. The work is going according to plan, the protection of the technical project is scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year. According to Manturov, the work involves the complete replacement of on-board electronic equipment and airborne systems. The new deeply modernized An-124-100M aircraft will be completely Russian.

Protection of the technical project for the modernized aircraft assigned to the 4-th quarter of the 2019 year, work is carried out in accordance with plans

- said the Minister, adding that in parallel with these works, the Ilyushin Design Bureau is conducting research work on the selection of the appearance of a promising military transport aviation complex aviation (PAK BTA), which in the future will come to replace the An-124. Protection of the advance project on this topic is scheduled for next year.

The beginning of work on the creation of a new military transport aircraft to replace An-124 Ruslan was announced at the end of last year by Nikolai Talikov, chief designer of Il PJSC.

According to him, the new IL-106 will meet all modern requirements for the aerobatic flight complex, and for the resource, and for the cargo transported. It is planned that during normal operation the aircraft will transport 80 tons of cargo, and under special operating conditions it will be able to "lift" 110-120 tons. The Il-106 cargo compartment will be the same size as on the An-124 Ruslan. In addition to the new avionics, the aircraft will receive new 24-26 tons of thrust engines, which are being created by the United Engine Corporation.

        The news is undeniably good, although Nova and important questions have not been disclosed - what about the engines? Do you need recertification, whose legal ownership will be the developer? If the engines will be ours as planned, then this is unfortunately not a "short time".

          Production was carried out at two enterprises. These are UAPK (RSFSR) and KiAPO (Ukrainian SSR).
          Kiev Aviation Production Association until 1994 built 17 aircraft.
          The Ulyanovsk Aviation-Industrial Complex built 33 aircraft from 1985 to 1995.

      I don’t be surprised if China bought the patents for An-124 from Ukraine. What patents? Did the USA buy patents for the production of RPG-7 or Kalash? No. who bought patents from someone? No. I changed the design a little and said that it was an original development and started to mass-produce.
      In addition, the An-124 Ruslan, although it was developed in Ukraine at Antonov Design Bureau, but the production of the An-124 was established in Russia and was discontinued only in 2003. In total, over the period of the Ulyanovsk Aviation Complex's existence, 36 An-124 units were manufactured. That is, the drawings were left. To modernize the design, put in new engines and the original domestic aircraft is ready.

      And when Tupolev did the Tu-4, how were things with patents?
      Py.Sy. somehow it occurred to me, as for patents, the Chinese should be asked how are they with patents? And in any way, they build cars and other equipment and scored on everything. They have a bolt half a millimeter in the wrong place, so their development.

      There is also PAK DA news. PAK DA will be a subsonic carrier of precision weapons made according to the “flying wing” scheme (without tail). The take-off mass of the device is 145 tons, the payload is 30 tons, the flight range will be 15 thousand km without refueling.

          I agree with this assessment, because the modernization of such equipment costs about 40% of the cost of a new development. There was a full-fledged new development, so this is not a modernization, but a new plane with elements from the design of the old airframe was created.

      They want to put on An-124 engines developed for the PAK DA with a thrust of 23-24 tons based on a gas generator from NK-32-02. In the meantime, things are like this.
      "The repair of D-18T engines is carried out by an enterprise that is not part of either UEC or Rostec. Within the framework of cooperation, UEC manufactures individual parts and assembly units for engines of this type. The work has already begun," Serdyukov said during the Gidroaviasalon- 2018 ".

          Ukraine? Are you kidding? An -124-100M is needed for the Russian Aerospace Forces, all military-technical cooperation with Ukraine is curtailed. Weird question. Import substitution in general. The same situation as with Zarya-Mashproekt and engines for our helicopters from Motor Sich. Until the An-124-100M flies its engine, it is time to put an end to the dependence on the engines.

          An-124-100M will be equipped with engines "Product of the Russian Federation"

          Do you already have these products, or is this again news in the future tense?
          And the Chinese have already bought Motor Sich, and this is not a joke.

    I won’t be surprised if China bought the patents for An-124 from Ukraine.

    China bought Motor Sich. For their aircraft, they will have their own engines.

      The beginning of the end Motor Sich, as well Chinese companies and not only Chinese companies in Russia bought up enterprises in the 90s, mastered technologies, built similar factories at home, and then the enterprises bought from us went bankrupt. The cynical business world where they appropriate everything that is bad and competitors, as you know, no one needs.

      And in the same place as the PD-35 engine with a thrust of 35 tons, for which 2016 billion rubles were allocated in 180. from the presidential fund.

    “RF Product” with a thrust of 23 tons, created on the basis of the NK-32-02 engine (“Product P”).

    In addition, the Kuznetsovsky plant in the former Kuibyshev, and now Samara, is quietly breathing no incense and squeezing .. (crossed out) optimizes personnel. So the hopes for a "product of the Russian Federation" are, to put it mildly, too optimistic.

    Good news ! "Motor-Sich" was sold to the Chinese recently .. Do they think that investments will trample on the shaft ..? In vain they hope .. The Chinese will squeeze out everything that is possible from there, and even the metal workshops will hand over

    "Protecting a technical project" is nothing at all. We need a date when the manufacturer will be able to pick up 4 new motors from the warehouse with all the documents and take them to the workshop and hang them on an airplane.

    The IL-106 cargo compartment will be the same size as on the An-124 Ruslan.

    And the external dimensions are less.

      External dimensions are smaller with the same internal dimensions, this is good on the one hand - less total weight, less resistance, stiffer structure itself, therefore the overall efficiency is higher. On the other hand, the "deaf" bow part is the inconvenience and duration of loading and unloading, a denser arrangement of internal components and equipment, which causes inconvenience of maintenance. In short, everything is learned in comparison. After all, Antonov also took such dimensions for a reason. Although, if we take into account the relative miniaturization of modern equipment and military equipment based on modern technologies, then this concept is quite applicable.

        tighter layout of internal components and equipment, which causes inconvenience to service

        That's what I liked about Ilyushin’s airplanes compared to Tupolev’s, because it’s easy to maintain. No comparison.
