The latest multi-purpose helicopter Mi-38T went for export

Russia begins to supply overseas multi-purpose Mi-38T helicopters. The first export contract was signed by Rosoboronexport. This was announced by the general director of the company Alexander Mikheev.


According to Mikheev, the first contract for the supply of Mi-38T to foreign customers has already been concluded and several more applications from potential foreign buyers are being considered. However, he did not name the exact number of helicopters already contracted and the country where the first Mi-38T rotorcraft will go.

A new Russian helicopter product, which is largely unique in its segment, was successfully launched to the world market in record time. Mi-38T is created entirely from domestic high-tech components

- said the general director of Rosoboronexport.

In December last year, the arrival of the first Mi-38T to the Russian military was reported. The helicopter is currently in experimental military operation.

The Mi-38 medium multipurpose helicopter occupies a niche between the Mi-8 and the heavy Mi-26 and can be used to transport goods and passengers, used as a search and rescue helicopter, as well as for flights over the water surface. Mi-38T (airborne assault) is a military version of the Mi-38. It is intended for round-the-clock air transport of personnel of up to 40 people with disembarkation at unprepared sites, evacuation of the wounded (up to 12 people in a lying position and up to 30 in a sitting position, accompanied by two medical personnel), transportation of goods weighing up to five tons in a cargo compartment or on the external sling.

The Mi-38T helicopter is equipped with new highly efficient TV7-117В domestic engines and an integrated digital flight-navigation system.

The flight range of the Mi-38T in the transport configuration is up to 1000 kilometers (with additional fuel tanks). The maximum take-off weight is 15,6 tons. The maximum speed is 300 km / h. Flights can be operated at altitudes of up to 6300 meters.

    Well, okay. This year they promise another pair of Mi-38T. Since the 21st, probably the series is already. This is good for KVZ.

          you can sell it only to your own people - let them eat on health .... damn it. It is sad from such trading on the soul. We trade grain, it’s not even flour. The cheapest implementation. Techniques like macaques are being changed for a cheap eater. Palm oil and bananas.

        Do you seriously think that palm oil is being brought here on tankers? Not at all. It is immediately sold on the spot.

          I'm not even what I think. Tankers arrive at the port of Taman. From there, transshipment is carried out by railway tanks and transporters along the chain of transshipment to the food industry, the bulk of it goes. The courts of the Krasnodar Territory are struggling with transshipment as they can (in the sense of trans-shipment violations). Get out of the oil - order and body weight as needed. You can just type in the search for oil transshipment through the port of Taman ..

    Engines need 1,5 times more powerful - then 300 km / h will become cruising speed.

      It already has very good engines - TV - 7 - 117, clearly better than VK - 2500 (TV - 3 - 177).

      And if twice as powerful, then all 400 km / h. You can increase the power to the first space, and fly by helicopter into space. laughing

    An intermediate position between MI 8 and MI 26 was occupied by MI 6 and this type of machine is not and is not expected. And in general, mi 38 was created in the Union. We all live in the Soviet reserve, although one said here that they did not release anything other than galoshes.

      Well, do not answer. Sometimes a busy person.
      But don’t trynd please. Quote - "Nobody bought our galoshes except Africans to walk on the hot sand."
      And to the military-industrial complex of the USSR, this is no sideways. Moreover, about the fact that apart from galoshes the USSR did not produce anything. Listen to the magazine less.

      Well, you strongly do not scold him. He is not particularly guilty, he also works by training manual, as well as crested teens.

        And last laughing There was a contract for only 2 helicopters. Of course I want to believe that the MI-8 park will be completely renewed, but vague doubts torment me ...

          Yes, you understand, the Mi-38 is not a replacement for the "eight." This is a different weight category.

            Not a replacement, but rather an addition to the G8. The weight category and dimensions are much closer to the Mi-26 than to the Mi.

    Flights can be operated at altitudes of up to 6300 meters.
    This is good, because usually the static ceiling of the turntables was 4-4,5 km. At 6,5 km from the MANPADS no longer get - that's good. But people at altitudes of more than 3000m do not carry oxygen masks ... But where can they be collected for 40 people? -- And that's bad! Unless of course the cabin is not tight. And it’s for the landing, as a rule, “blown by all the winds” (troops) ...

      And where did you get the idea that this is an assault landing helicopter? Even pylons for suspension weapons are not provided. Ordinary transporter.

        Yes, all from the same, from the TEXT of the article!
        It is designed for round-the-clock airborne personnel of up to 40 people with landing on unprepared sites, evacuation of the wounded (up to 12 people in a lying position and up to 30 in a sitting position, accompanied by two health workers.

        I didn’t invent anything. But what has happened to you ... it’s not for me, it’s a "neurologist," however ...
        And then, where in my post you found "assault landing" ???
        Sorry, but these are your delights!
        AHA.

          So what? The transfer of personnel by air is provided even in An 124.
          Well, I’m surely mistaken with the term "airborne assault". But even it’s about landing when
          And it’s for the landing, as a rule, “blown by all the winds” (troops) ...
          does not go. It is not even envisaged to shoot from the board with personal small arms. I have not seen any information on this.

    The latest?! Work on it began in the early 80s. Just to grind it with your tongue. If this is the newest helicopter, then I wonder what kind of "old" in its understanding.
