Ulan-Ude aviation the Russian Helicopters holding plant has begun production of a batch of Mi-8AMTSh-VN helicopters in a special version according to a contract signed at the Army-2019 forum. This was reported by the press service of the holding.


Russian Helicopters Holding began assembling the first batch of Mi-8AMTS-VN


Russian Helicopters Holding began manufacturing a batch of 10 helicopters of special purpose Mi-8AMTS-VN. According to the factory, the LSZ-8VN airborne defense systems have already been purchased, which will be delivered from April to November next year for installation on helicopters. A special contract for the supply of 10 Mi-8AMTSH-VN was concluded at the Army-2019 forum with a delivery time for helicopters in 2020-2021.

As the holding explained, the Mi-8AMTS-VN helicopter is an improved version of the Mi-8 / 17 helicopter, created taking into account the Syrian experience. It is equipped with VK-2500-03 gas turbine engines with an upgraded transmission and improved altitude and climatic characteristics and a new carrier system. In addition, the updated composition of the armament was installed on the helicopter, the main feature of which was the use of two suspension machine guns of the 12,7 mm caliber on special farms. The cockpit and the main units of the helicopter are covered with titanium alloy armor, and the cockpit and side floors to the portholes are closed with removable Kevlar armor.

A new flight and navigation equipment was installed on the helicopter. To increase the combat survivability, the principle of a combination of a "glass cabin" and reliable analog instruments has been applied. The machine is adapted for use at night.

Mi-8AMTSH-VN is equipped with the LSZ-8VN defense complex, which automatically detects the launch of missiles by helicopter, interferes with their guidance heads and emits false thermal targets.

        That's why we add multi-letter abbreviations to the name of the model (and even with numbers) - so that with a guarantee there will be enough for all modifications.
        But the Americans, with their one-letter names of modifications on "Huey" and "Cobra", have already reached the last letters of the alphabet. smile

        But on the video Mi-8MTV5, Kazan plant! And AMTSh is Ulan-Ude! All this has already happened! When the Mi-8TV was created in Ulan-Ude, very heavily armed, which in fact did not give an advantage over the Mi-8T and the Mi-24, and when the Mi-8MT was created in Kazan, which increased transport and combat capabilities, then about TV " tried to forget. " Now history repeats itself! The Mi-8 is primarily a transport helicopter! His armament is auxiliary! And on the Mi-8TV (AMTSh) weapons ... more than on the Mi-24, and this weight is not small, which affects the detriment of transport tasks. And in fact we get a bad transport and a mediocre (if not worse) combat helicopter!

            The Mi-8MTV has enough weapons to support the landing. For amphibious and rescue missiles ATGMs are redundant! In such operations, the Mi-8T and MT were used, but I never heard about the participation of the Mi-8TV!

          Without large weapons, transport capabilities are not diminished. And with full armament, nothing prevents to take the reconnaissance group to block the barmaley, and then support the group with fire. Sincerely, Mi-8MTV5 commander in stock.

            I do not understand, to whom is the answer? In general, I say Mi-8MTV are enough! And to fence a garden with Mi-8AMTS (with ATGM system) is useless. The experience of using the Mi-8TV confirms this. Sincerely, Mi-8MTV commander, but no longer in stock.

    A completely different helicopter, in fact! Reliability increased, completely different visibility, no worse - 100%, door width increased - landing and evacuation under enemy fire will be faster, power supply will be increased, and as a result, flight altitude ... not every MANPADS can take aim, new blades can withstand a 20mm hit shell ... Airborne defense complex !!! A more powerful set and allowed to use a wide range of weapons
    Class! good

        Ko-50, heater. At the Mi-8T, MT, MTV, he stands in front of the right tank. With the installation of a sliding door to the right, KO-50 was raised. In this place on the Mi-14PS was air conditioning. In general, there is nothing new in the design, all the ideas implemented in the AMTS-VN are old and were previously proposed for modernization by the plant, but KB Mila slowed down their implementation. But now the factories were allowed to independently upgrade serial models. So there was AMTSH, now AMTSH-VN. By the way for skeptics. The combat radius of any combat helicopter is less than that of the Mi-8. Therefore, they arm the Mi-8 to the maximum.

      Wrote above. It is necessary to maintain a balance between combat and transport capabilities! I also understand the Mi-4, when there was no Mi24, but at the moment the AMTSh have excessive combat capabilities to the detriment of transport!

          Let me disagree! For example, I will give the ZIS-2 anti-tank gun. Which became in demand only after the enemy had worthy targets! Of course, this is far from AA, but it shows that weapons can be redundant. There is a proverb: "From a cannon to sparrows." I would like to ask for what purposes the AMTSh will work during the ATGM assault landing? Infantry? Or is it planned to land a landing in the place of concentration of armored vehicles?

        The whole class, only the installation of shooting heat traps remained old. In order to finalize, the installation of the shooting was set in the window under the engines to the left and right, for charging it opened into the inside of the cargo compartment, it was very convenient to reload in flight. The machine guns are also old forgotten, they were also put on the farms in the farms until the nasal installation was done under the FCT.

        Do doors weigh nothing? Moreover, the ramp on the Mi-8 is the back door.
        And judge for yourself. In the event of a landing, the ramp can be folded down before landing. But the doors ... Well, very big doubts.

      Surely he can, otherwise they would not have hung so much. The pros are also in the design bureau, they must have calculated everything with a margin, as we usually do. Which is correct.
