Turkey takes interest in Be-200 Russian amphibious aircraft

Turkey intends to acquire the Be-200 Altair Russian amphibious aircraft, including to extinguish forest fires. This was stated by Minister of Agriculture and Forestry Bekir Pakdemirli, the newspaper said Hürriyet.


Turkey takes interest in Be-200 Russian amphibious aircraft


According to Pakdemirli, the Turkish delegation has already visited Taganrog, where it held preliminary negotiations on the conditions for the possible supply of amphibious aircraft. The final decision on this issue will be made after Turkish experts study "all the technical characteristics and evaluate the suitability of the Be-200 to the geography of Turkey."

We looked at this plane for a very long time. We could use it to extinguish forest fires in Turkey. Now we will conduct bilateral negotiations and discuss the conditions. But already now we come to the conclusion that they can satisfy our needs

- the minister said.

Pakdemirli explained that the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan instructed him to study all the characteristics of the Be-200 amphibious aircraft and the possibility of buying it after he got acquainted with this aircraft at the MAKS-2019 exhibition in Zhukovsky, Moscow Region.

Be-200 Altair is a Russian amphibious aircraft developed at the Beriev TANTK. The first flight was made in 1998 year, the beginning of operation - 2003 year. Payload mass: 5000 kg of cargo, as well as 12 m³ of water in tanks (8 sections of water tanks, with the possibility of simultaneous or sequential discharge).

    Are we releasing such airplanes at all, or are we just scattering promises with words?

      Taganrog makes an hour per teaspoon. Now the question is with engines. Motor Sich will not sell them to us anymore, and under another test, it is necessary to certify them again.

        Kycosis is that troubles have arisen for a long time, but when are they going to decide?
        It is clear that creating an engine, getting certified, is not a quick thing, but still, it is progressing or not even creeping ??? All this is sad! Now the minke whales will hurry up, PD 14 and so on will be hacked to death as "stolen" from them, WHAT WE WILL DO ???

          For a foreign contract, put together with the French SaM146. It can’t be set only for our Defense Ministry, but for the Turks - for God's sake. When PD7 is ready, you can put them. request What is the reason for the tantrum then? The issue is quite solvable.

        In this case, sell, so these engines will go on airplanes for Turkey. So, there are no problems with the engines. But can the Taganrogs be able to?

      Engines Ivchenko Progress - slow down the work.
      Moving production to Taganrog is simply a failure, the outcome of the MO refused the contract after 5 years of delay.
      The Ministry of Emergencies also wanted to jump off. For aircraft under the 11 contract of the year - are only now being transferred.


      On engines, the issue is very slowly being resolved.
      The Prosecutor General’s office pointed to inexpediency of using French SaM200 engines for Russian amphibious Be-146 aircraft instead of the previous Ukrainian... According to the department, they are not suitable for such customers as the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Emergency Situations, since the "hot part" of the engines is produced in a NATO member country. Hence the difficulties with their use.

      According to media reports, the Prosecutor General’s Office even sent the Ministry of Industry and Trade a notice that in this case there is a risk of disruption of the defense order, recalling the introduced anti-Russian sanctions.

      Sources in the defense industry said that instead of Ukrainian motors, they plan to install domestic ones from UEC-Perm motors on amphibious aircraft.

      But there is a problem. As noted by the media, the engine PD-10 not yet. And ahead of its development.

        PD-10 was not planned to be installed on the Be-200. The PD-8, which is to be installed at Altair, has been in development for a long time (it was previously called PD-7). At the moment, only its "hot" part is not ready, everything else has already been done.

      The cost of the Be-200 is 53mln \ dollars the cost of MI-26t is 25mln \ dollars .. One carries 12m3 of water, the other 20m3 .. Refueling of one is possible only from large reservoirs of the other practically from any, for the operation of the first one you need an airfield with a certain strip, for the second any airfield with equipment .. The first one can be operated almost exclusively as a fireman’s water truck, the second one anywhere and anywhere. The extinguishing accuracy is incommensurable .. The only major advantage is the cost of flight hours for the BE-200 is 200k \ r for MI-26 it is 600k \ r. The question is, what is more effective to extinguish fires ?.

        as I understand it, the be200 can land on the water, i.e. he and the airfield are not particularly needed, a sufficiently wide river, he drove the tank and refuel it. + speed, the ability to transfer from one section to another, the helicopter has a lower flight speed

          An airfield is needed for maintenance, but you won’t spend it on the river, plus landing in an unfamiliar water area is a very responsible business and is hardly encouraged by instructions (most likely there is a list of reservoirs, and even binding to a specific pilot is clearly available) all salt 200 is an independent and quick refueling, otherwise it loses all the advantages .. Range and speed is good, but attachment to the airfield and low versatility at a higher price calls into question this aircraft .. As for me for extinguishing fires (not to mention everything else) 20 MI-26 is more rational than 10 Be-200 .. Even in coastal areas .. For a reason, for example, the BE-200 is used for its intended purpose mainly in the summer and in the presence of fires, and the MI-26 is used all year round for a wide variety of jobs ..

            I’m not arguing with you, I’d rather reflect. the question is the ability to transfer these 20 mi26 from the Far East to (for example) the Northern or Southern Urals and how long it will take. Finally
            MI26 also needs infrastructure for preflight training, etc. So, neither one nor the other option has an ideal solution.

                And if you create a fire extinguishing network. Those. 5 mi26 each in the region (they should be enough to extinguish small fires) + 5 be200 for the federal district. So we get the opportunity to quickly build up a grouping in a region by transferring aviation to the border of the regions already in the first day. It is clear that the specifics of a particular region must be taken into account, but the idea must be clear. and + "air division" of the nth number of firefighters or 76 (78?) standing somewhere in one place in the country. Perhaps it is expensive, but given the specifics of our country, its length, any project will be expensive.

            As I understand it, the Be200 tanks are installed under the floor in the cabin, because it can also be a transport for the wounded and sick + deployment of a mobile hospital + speed of transfer in case of an earthquake. It’s always faster to deliver the wounded by plane than by helicopter, especially if the area is remote, and if there is no airdrome, it’s possible to get splashed. In the end, he can reset the help while helicopters fly to the landing site, if these are the same mountains.
            by the way, he doesn’t have to sit down to replenish his tanks. he can do it in flight.

          Everything is correct. In the emergency situation, a thermal imager is installed on it and the operator’s place for it, the blisters for viewing are large (the anti-icing system on them is an alcohol-water mixture of 50% wink ), there is a rubber boat pressurization system and a boat with a motor, all kinds of anchors, hooks on it as part of standard equipment are included. The floor inside is normal, as in an ordinary passenger plane with standard profiles for fastening or seats or pallets for cargo containers, again, a large cargo hatch for the same containers or an inflatable boat.

    You can read in different ways. When moving away from the aerodrome, say 150-200 km, MI-26 must be filled with water and driven off once and then returned. Be-200 in one departure (if there is, say, 50 km of a suitable reservoir) can pour 100 tons of water. Somewhere there were such calculations with calculations. This year, when fires extinguished in the north of the Irkutsk region, it was like that, I tracked Be-200 flights on a fly radar, they just cut circles over the Angara to take water and then dropped water on the fires, watched for 7-8 calls .

    Yes, this is how it turned out for a specific post, I just collected this system, I know what’s how wink ... Standardly, according to the documentation, a washing liquid of the "Pemos" type is poured there if my memory does not change

    What kind of plates do they need to wash?))))
    Or is it really fire foam pouring water instead of water?

    You collect water (either at the airport or on planing 12 tons in 45 seconds), there are pumps, pipelines supply liquid to the water tanks (the number can be adjusted by the supply taps), it mixes, and foamy water falls out of the tank. On the show, if you saw the Be-200 dropping a tricolor from water (I saw it in Irkutsk on the anniversary of the plant), the colors are made with chemical dyes. tanks located in the cabin 6pcs. 200 liters each.
