An intermediate link between the Mi-8 and the promising helicopter-BMD for the Airborne Forces has been developed


It became known about the new development of the Russian Helicopters holding. About it reports TASS news agency with reference to the head of the holding. Andrei Boginsky noted that we are talking about a new modification of the Mi-8 helicopter.


It is noted that this is a new helicopter for special forces - Mi-8AMTSH-VN2.

TASS gives the statement of the head of the holding:

We have a modernized look AMTSH-VN. Let's just say that with advanced options and capabilities - not even the machine itself, but additional equipment.

It is noted that the helicopter for special forces will receive a "higher level" system. We are talking about means of detecting and destroying targets, about recognition systems.

The material says that this helicopter is an intermediate link of rotorcraft from Mi-8 to a promising helicopter for the Airborne Forces. Today, a perspective helicopter for airborne units is understood, in essence, as a helicopter landing combat vehicle - BMD helicopter, which will provide high mobility for assault units with fire support capabilities for operations.

It is known that the AMTSH-VN version is equipped with two course 12,7 mm machine guns, which makes it possible for the crew to use special night vision goggles. The helicopter is equipped with a BKO (airborne defense system). Mi-8AMTSH-VN2 is armored. The cab and main units have armor made of titanium alloy; other sites are protected by Kevlar armor.

      Just such a good design! There are 8 matches, that since 1961 - there have been so many upgrades (improvements) that really soon not only letters but also numbers will end! More than 12 thousand cars produced! Great rate!

        I agree that the car is almost brought to excellent good Verified by life itself, in the full sense of the word.

        And more than 10.000 require repair and service, but this is not a task, MIL does not give anyone a license, and the office itself does not have money to "embrace the immense."

        Excellent performance!

        Among other things, this is an indicator that our design bureaus are treading water in one place due to underfunding of modern developments, the outflow of scientific personnel, etc. Yes, and production capacities, without proper modernization, wear out over time. As a result, whatever one may say, we have in our base the development of 58 years ago.

    That is why so. Beautiful and understandable text, but worth picking, how are the questions right away?
    rotorcraft combat landing vehicle - BMD helicopter, which will provide
    high mobility of assault units

    They immediately write in the text that there was a modernization in equipment, a reservation, just due to what now "high mobility" was achieved?
    I have a bicycle, I fastened the trunk, a rearview mirror, a headlight ...... - Well, it turns out yes, it has become more mobile, but if all this has already happened? Screw in mud flaps?

    Noise reduction is the most important thing when determining a helicopter for special forces / MTR, etc.

    And all these exchange machine guns are not even secondary ...

    What's not news is someone’s blizzard. and the worst thing is that this blizzard is carried by people responsible for production ...

    Oh and the "people" in our defense industry ...

      This is even theoretically impossible (design feature hi ), and the problem that you voiced (unmasking the MTR landing point) by all countries is solved by introducing ground transportation (from the buggy to the hamer) and landing for “X” km from the theater.

        Not a design, but a fundamental feature of the rotor.
        The ends of the propeller move with supersonic speed, creating a ballistic wave.
        Example: bullets are ordinary (supersonic) and for silent shooting (subsonic).
        "Subsonic" rotor - nobody needs it.

          it seems like with transonic just because of the fact that the tips of the blades during supersound can create a wave, the rotational speed of the screw is limited, it was understood in the early 30's

            And here and there!
            There, it is even more difficult on one side of the incoming stream, and on the other side of the runaway.
            And the ends of the blades are still yes, supersonic, especially if moving towards the movement.

          A little mistaken ....
          Fundamentally, 100% compliance in the form of the axiom "supersonic = increased noise" is incorrect.
          Solutions are still found
          Work is underway in this segment.
          Blue Edge and Blue Pulse blades are designed to significantly reduce noise.
          The use of finestron also significantly reduces the noise level.

            Yes, invented a lot, and many even "work", BUT there is always a big BUT, they are not launched into mass production because they do not work wink There is a significant nuance, all such tricks work only within the boundaries of certain conditions, and as soon as the helicopter goes beyond these boundaries, the noise returns again. As a rule, 90 +% of such notions do not work with horizontal flight under conditions of changing wind and / or maneuvering, that is, in the hover mode everything is fine, in the horizontal flight mode at low speed, too, but as soon as the maneuvering begins, the noise returns again. Or, for example, there are other restrictions, for example, on the payload, that is, everything is fine on a light reconnaissance helicopter, and again on the average transport helicopter noise ...

            Only a partial decrease is possible, but any body moving faster than sound draws a ballistic wave.
            This is what we hear, and not some kind of "overcoming the speed of sound, accompanied by a clap."
            Not a damn thing about cotton, but if the MIG-29 flies at a height of 200 meters by 1,5M, it turns the car over! Glasses in the windows will not remain at all!
            Including therefore it is forbidden to fly at low altitude in supersonic.

    Further, faster, more powerful, little more noticeable, smarter, more sensitive ... in general, I will win better than anyone and everyone.

      I admit that they are centenarians because of poverty. Modern expensive technologies using new composite materials, spraying, etc. + computer simulation and calculations, allows you to do something super-new.

        What does poverty have to do with it, not a single fuselage or a wing made of a composite can outperform the classics - stamped duralumin and percale, will be many times more expensive and therefore an hour of work will cost more. This is only a manufacture, and there are also operating costs, including repair, and again the classic will come out cheaper. These are the pies, therefore the An-2 has been flying for about 70 years and there is no equivalent for it in terms of cost or reliability.

    As for me, you need to make an intermediate link between Mi-8/17 and Mi-28. Ideally, this link corresponds to Mi-35, which is well-armed, armored and can carry several landing personnel (up to 10, if I'm not mistaken). The capacity is approximately equivalent to BMD. To unify helicopters according to the supporting system (engines, propellers, gearboxes, tail transmission), to unify the equipment to the maximum, to make three types of fuselages (approximately corresponding to Mi - 8/17, 35 and 28). In principle, everything is already there, it remains to unify ...
