The Ministry of Defense began state testing of a heavy helicopter Mi-26T2V

The Ministry of Defense, together with the Russian Helicopters holding, began state tests of the upgraded Mi-26T2V heavy helicopter. This was announced by the CEO of the holding Andrey Boginsky.


According to a widespread press release, state helicopter tests will last all 2020 and will be held at four training sites. A mixed crew of representatives of the holding and the Ministry of Defense will take part in the tests.

To date, the prototype Mi-26T2V has successfully completed preliminary factory tests, which allowed us to begin the program of state joint tests, which will last all 2020

- declared Boginsky.

As previously reported, the first flight of the upgraded Mi-26T2V helicopter took place in August 2018, and preliminary tests that confirmed the characteristics inherent in the machine were completed in January of this year. Serial deliveries to the armed forces are planned to begin immediately after state tests. The Ministry of Defense intends to purchase at least 10 Mi-26T2V.

The new Mi-26Т2В helicopter differs from the basic Mi-26 model by the presence of an integrated on-board radio-electronic equipment complex, which is able to automatically perform en-route flight, exit to a predetermined point, landing approach, as well as preparatory maneuvering and return to the main or alternate aerodromes. In addition, the helicopter is equipped with a digital aerobatic complex, an onboard defense complex "Vitebsk".

With a maximum take-off weight of up to 56 and a helicopter, the helicopter can lift into the air 20 and cargo, both inside the cabin and on the external sling.

      A question of questions ... if on TV2,3-117 KB and pilot production in Russia, then D-18 for Ruslan and D-136 for Mi-26 is the development of the Zaporizhzhya KB and pilot production, respectively, is also there ..

        If with the D-136, then you don't need to test anything. Because there are no engines and never will be. Is it only the residents of Rostov at night from the territory of the Zaporozhye plant will tyrit spare parts, and then "on the knee" to collect. Or wait until the Chinese move the plant to their place and restore production.

                It is a very real life situation in market relations. Many countries order the production of their banknotes in other countries. As an example, the karbovans and hryvnias of Ukraine, in 1992-93 were printed in France, Canada, Italy.

        Nothing will be imported soon. Instead of D-136 there will be PD-12V, and instead of D-18T there will be NK-23D.
        In May of this year, the head of the Russian Helicopters holding, Andrei Boginsky, said that flight tests of the remotorized Mi-26 would take place after 2022. As a new engine on a heavy helicopter, it is planned to use the PD-12V, created on the basis of the PD-14 gas generator (this motor designed for the Russian promising narrow-body aircraft MS-21). It will replace the Ukrainian D-136 engines manufactured by Motor Sich, which are now being used in the Mi-26.

        The development of PD-12V is at the stage of experimental design work (ROC). In 2017, the stage of preliminary design of this engine was completed, the Perm division of the UEC-Aviadvigatel corporation reported in its information and technical bulletin. To date, the design of the power plant and the main parameters have been determined, and integration with the helicopter has been carried out. The production and testing of the first prototype PD-12V is scheduled for 2020, and the overall completion of the R&D project is scheduled for 2025.

          By then, the Mi-26T3 / B will need to be done. And this is an optimistic view of the future. In fact, it would be nice to be 27 years old.

          -Nothing soon and their import substitution-

          It is unlikely that the ROCs are planned to be completed after 2025.

        What does it have to do with the experience, when Motor Sich has been producing them in series for 40 years.

      D-136-1 (or even slightly cracked -2) - most likely Ukroboronprom (Ivchenko-Progress - the lead collector using MS components).

      But the Mi-26 engines were bought quite a lot before breaking ties. Therefore, there will probably be new units for the announced contract.

      Large export deliveries (Algeria / Jordan) are covered by procurement under a contract from a Ukrainian manufacturer.

      By the way, the last two Mi-26T2 for the King are overtaking right now:
      On December 26, 2019, during a stopover at Diagoros airport on the Greek island of Rhodes, two heavy transport helicopters Mi-26T2 (registration numbers 06823 and 06824) built by Rostvertol JSC (as part of Russian Helicopters JSC) for the Jordanian Air Force were filmed, flying on the route to the customer.
      April 17, 2016 JSC Russian Helicopters signed a contract No. RH-15-0651-04-1 for the supply four Mi-26T2 helicopters with the Jordanian state bureau The King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau (KADDB). Helicopters are designed for the Jordanian Air Force. Jordan thereby became the second foreign military customer of Mi-26T2 modification helicopters after Algeria, which received 2015 such helicopters since 14.


      Well, Algeria gets the board almost more advanced than the MO wanted. And more - 14 cars.

          It seems that Egypt has already "fussed in advance" and bought it on its own head ..)) Now we will "see" how they will "fuck up" with these two actually experienced sides (the plant that has produced them for 15 years does not exist))

        With intensive use, this stock will quickly decrease.

    The theme of the engine installed on the Mi-26T2, bashfully and elegantly is not disclosed in the Russian circumscribed media.

As a new engine on a heavy helicopter, it is planned to use the PD-12V, created on the basis of a gas generator from PD-14 (this the engine is intended for the Russian perspective narrow-body aircraft MS-21). It will replace the Ukrainian D-136 engines manufactured by Motor Sich, which are now equipped with the Mi-26. But already in December 2019, and the deal with the re-motorization of the Mi-26 is going into foggy distances. He previously announced the general completion of the R&D project - in 2025.

      So, `` tests of the remotorized Mi-26 will take place after 2022 ... '' in our realities, it can mean 2032, or even 2042)) It is not at all clear there whether it is necessary to sculpt a new engine for the old apparatus of the 70s years of development, which in the best years was produced in small batches .. Maybe by 2025 the same Zaporozhye engines will be re-exported through China, which would be definitely more profitable for everyone.

    And why such bells and whistles in avionics? - It’s not the fact that in the war they will greatly help, but in peaceful use all the more, some functions seem to me redundant.

          Automatic flight on a given route
          This is autopilot. Just implemented on a modern base. Accuracy and reliability are enhanced. Weight is reduced.
