Named the cost of the modernization project An-124 Ruslan


According to the SPARK-marketing system, the cost of developing by Russian specialists a technical design for the An-124-100M military transport aircraft, which is a modification of the Soviet An-124 Ruslan aircraft, may exceed 1 billion rubles. The contract for design work was concluded between Ilyushin Design Bureau and the Myasishchev Experimental Machine-Building Plant. It indicates the cost of work 830 million rubles. The project should be completed by the end of 2020.


The total cost of developing design documentation for the aircraft and its components will be more than a billion rubles.

All work on the creation and testing of the new An-124-100M was estimated at 3,5 billion rubles. They plan to finish in 2022.

The geometric dimensions and flight performance of the new aircraft will not differ from the old ones, but the life of the transporter will be increased to 50-60 years.

An-124-100M will completely replace on-board radio electronics, modernize airborne transport equipment, power supply system, as well as other systems and units.

In addition, an individual automatic complex of protection against MANPADS attacks will be installed on the aircraft. The visibility of the aircraft will also be reduced.

All outdated, imported and non-manufactured aircraft equipment will be replaced by domestic developments. The only exception will be the Ukrainian D-18T engine, which they decided to leave.

      As far as I understand, it is precisely with the Ruslan engines that the problem is fatal.
      There are three ways out so far - either to “cannibalize” those stored, which is unlikely, because the boards with the largest residual life are in service, or they can secretly drag engines and spare parts through front / Chinese companies, which is unlikely to happen, because the operators 124 / D-18T is not so much and they are all in sight, or the Volga-Dnepr economy is in the hands of the MOs - they are the latest, and the list of necessary repair work on them is much more modest, despite the fact that the company has already had problems with legalization extended airworthiness.

        In July, Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov reported that Russia had mastered the repair of Ukrainian engines for Ruslan.
        "The first repaired engines have already been received. We hope that we will come to the possibility of repairing at least 12 engines a year, these are three aircraft. With this dynamics, we will quickly raise the serviceability of this fleet," Borisov said in an interview with Interfax.

        The problem is that the D-18 is no longer manufactured by Motor Sich. When kapitalka is reprofiling in the next series. And I doubt very much that they can resume production. And the snap-in is partially lost and the little people have run up, what remains is highly doubtful.

        Not enough million for the development of CD.
        This is just the budget of a team of engineers of 17 people and a salary of about 60000 rubles. Crude of course, but the meaning should be clear.

    Where to go? There is nothing to replace request But how long will they last? Will they manage to finish the development of the PD-18 by this time? Or do they have different cravings?
    In general, in recent years, there has been no news not only about PD-18, but also about PD-14, the tests of which should have been completed.

      D18T thrust is almost 23500 kgf, for PD-18 they plan to 18000 kgf. Bad exchange.

      When will the PD-35 - is unknown. Remotorization of the An-124 under it is that sheepskin that it is not worth the hassle. It will be cheaper to make a new plane.

      You can try to negotiate with Ukraine - they operate the IL-78 (it’s not a typo, it’s really former refuellers with dismantled refueling equipment) who mainly fly under contracts with NATO and Ukraine is very interested in them. And the engines on them are Rybinsk - D-30KP ....

      Initially, the An-124 was produced in Kiev and Ulyanovsk, and the Ulyanovsk plant produced more aircraft. Well
      In August 2019, Antonov stated that in the case of the organization of serial production of the An-124-100M aircraft in Russia (according to some reports, the production of such production is carried out by Ilyushin Design Bureau), the aircraft must be assigned a different designation (the aircraft needs a new designation without reference on "An").

      At the Moscow Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2017 FSUE Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute named after Professor N.E. Zhukovsky (TsAGI, part of the Research Center "Zhukovsky Institute"), the concept of the promising heavy transport aircraft (TTS) "Elephant" was presented, An-124 base. Naturally, upon learning about this, Ukrainians immediately squealed about copyright infringement, but were rightly sent over the horizon, because Russian designers made no less contribution to the development of the aircraft compared to Ukrainian ones and the sheriff’s Indians and blacks don’t care smile hi

      For example, S-400 complexes to Turkey. On the one hand, quickly so that the stench rises, but not for a long time, but the most important demonstration is that for ourselves we can very quickly transfer such toys and at least quickly deploy them in the required area.

                The planes are new, since the main costs for the preparation of production, which had to be transferred were from Tashkent. MS-21 grew out of the Yak-242, but essentially a new aircraft. The last phrase kills the interest of discussing something else. Immediately blows in a choke.

                    If you dig, then the IL-106 also grows out of the IL-96, so it’s not completely from scratch.

                  why else should An-124 be reproduced, perhaps it is better to do the Il-106 from scratch.

                  And no one An-124 does not reproduce.
                  They simply modernize existing aircraft by replacing obsolete equipment with modern Russian one.

                  Hmm ... someone deleted my comment)), they’re stifling freedom of speech ... well, there’s the “Elephant” project, so why don’t the resources of the Russian Federation be thrown at this project, would get new competencies, and as always, with the countries of the east they traded these airplanes ?!

    for Russian designers made no less contribution to the development of the aircraft compared to Ukrainian, and the problems of the Indians and Negro sheriff do not care

    This you write from nevkursii.
    It doesn’t matter who developed the iron. Moreover, ANY, at least a coffee grinder. IMPORTANT who has the original documents. (in our opinion, design, who has tracing paper). The developer could be alone, but tracing paper could be passed to anyone, in the USSR, to whom the Ministry would order. It so happened that Ukraine became the project owner. And it was she who executed all the permissive, insurance, certification and other papers. And not a single country will allow a plane flying over its territory that is not serviced by the HOST, or a workshop by its decision and guarantee. You need to change the name of the airplane. Having proved at the design stage the significant differences of his project in order to prove patent and other purity. Only then will a new project be able to appear in all kinds of international gossip as an independent one. And this project will have its OWNER, with all the ensuing consequences. Or do you agree that this colossus flew from one collective farm bazaar to another, without crossing the borders of Russia? Who will miss such an illegitimate machine?

      Russia has complete factory documentation with the latest edits, which Antonov’s owners are not very full and relevant.
      To change the name of the aircraft is to go through the entire list of international certification.
      It will be possible to fly with the old name wherever free from "international" law imposed by the USA (along with various inches, miles and feet), where Russian certificates are recognized and with their own insurance.

    Just read the last paragraph:
    "All outdated, imported and non-manufactured aircraft equipment will be replaced with domestic developments. The only exception is the Ukrainian D-18T engine, which they decided to leave."
    and the future of this project will become clear.

    What to carry on your back? Cat with alms?
    To do this, you need to redo the power part of the fuselage, thicken and strengthen .... The mass will creep up again. The mass of the cargo and the radius of flight will decrease. Explain what is necessary to carry on the back. From a deep knowledge of the topic is writing?

      You can carry overall but not heavy. For example, fuel tanks or something similar. Evaluate the market and adapt a couple of aircraft. By the way, the tail itself will redo the balance already shift.

    The total cost of developing the design documentation for the aircraft and its components will be more than a million rubles.

    Funny figure. Students will be involved in the development ?.

    Without replacing the engines, the AN-124 will remain the AN-124. The engine is long and expensive to do ... at the time of developing a new engine, the director of the aircraft engine plant does not have to pay bonuses - a bare salary.

    [quote = Lexus] [quote] The only exception will be the Ukrainian D-18T engine, which they decided to leave. [/ quote]
    As far as I understand, it is precisely with the Ruslan engines that the problem is fatal.

    “Ivchenko-Progress” at the end of 2019 entered the bench tests of units for the upgraded 18T3M fourth series with a 10% increased take-off thrust. In 2020, the full assembly of the first two engines is planned.
    Design differences from series 3:

    - a fan with a modified profiling of the blades, which allowed to obtain increased take-off thrust without increasing the frequency of rotation of the fan rotor;
    - The fan turbine has been upgraded;
    - a reversing device with a drive of moving parts from two hydraulic motors and electronic control (instead of a mechanical drive and a hydromechanical control system); (Thank God. How tired it is to restore levers and brackets by constant digestion in the chamber, if you only knew.)
    - measures to ensure that the aircraft meets the requirements for noise (ICAO Chapter 4) and exhaust emissions (ICAO promising standards); (New design of swirls and working nozzles. Last year, the brain carried these structural alterations.)
    - the profiling of the nozzle blades of the medium pressure turbine has been changed;
    - The cooling system of the working and nozzle blades of the high pressure turbine was modernized.

    One problem is a very inhibiting project - the lack of units, which are naturally Russian-made. They are shepherding a local analogue for replacement somewhere, whether in Kharkov, or somewhere else, I won’t say for sure. But what’s for sure, don’t go to the grandmother, it won’t work.

    Stagnation is called

    If you managed to save the engineering school, then of course it is better to build a new plane. But if, in the conditions of the 90s, engineering schools were badly damaged, and in some places completely bent, then it is best to start with the modernization of existing products.
