Development work on the Ka-65 "Lamprey" helicopter has not yet been opened

Development work on the development of a promising deck lamp helicopter "Lamprey" has not yet begun, their opening is scheduled for 2020. This was stated by the CEO of Russian Helicopters Andrei Boginsky.


Responding to a question from a RIA news agency correspondent News, the general director of Russian Helicopters explained that the Ministry of Defense has so far not concluded a contract to conduct R&D on the topic of the Lamprey deck helicopter with the holding. At the same time, he noted that negotiations are underway, preliminary design has already been completed, and an agreement should be signed this year.

We do not have a contract yet. The coordination of the technical specifications is in the final stage. On Friday, February 14, we have a meeting with Alexei Krivoruchko; maybe then I can share some information. Work scheduled for this year.

- he said.

The first talk about the possible development of a new helicopter went in 2015. Then the chief of the sea aviation Naval forces Igor Kozhin said that the Navy can get a car by 2020. Later, in 2016, Sergey Mikheev, general designer of Kamov JSC, made a clarification in a comment to the TASS news agency - it could take about 10 years to develop, and serial production of the new helicopter will begin no earlier than the mid-2020s.

The new helicopter should replace the Ka-27 ship-based helicopter, which has been serving almost 50 years. A new rotary-wing machine, while being lighter, should also become more powerful.

The helicopter is built according to the traditional coaxial scheme for Kamov. The Polet Research and Production Enterprise from Nizhny Novgorod created a special communications system for this vehicle, which should both ensure full integration into automated systems for command and control and combat.

    In Soviet times, they designed and built without pointers on top and roach. For which they received awards and prizes. And now what - we are waiting for the money, then we will work. (although the work is already in the minds).

      Designed without pointers from above, but secretly deducted money from other orders.
      There are no miracles - if in one place it arrives, then in another it will.
      And how much was cunning with the creation of new aircraft under the flag of creating a modification of the old !!))))

        In Soviet times, everyone was on salaries, but now there is no contract - there is no money for salaries, that's all accounting. Capitalism.

            One other does not exclude. I do not criticize the Soviet approach. In this case, even the opposite.

              so I do not criticize him. The fact is that initiative design was not very carried away even then, as it is not very carried away even now. The initiative can be shown, but to a certain extent - this is a conceptual design. And show the customer - suddenly interested? Carry out technical design, create a design documentation and even more so a prototype - why? The customer may not be satisfied, but have worked out, but have not earned. Although in the West it is practiced, but there the offices are really private and are free to spend their money as they please.

                Not true. The Union was constantly engaged in proactive designing and the funds for this were, hence the large number of “developments” that still find their application. Plus, under the Union, leaders were specialized professionals who understood the technical challenges that confronted them, not like the current "managers." Now, I repeat, the situation is completely different, only financially stable enterprises can afford such a luxury, and then if they “know” in advance what goods will be bought. The rest of the vast majority "lives" only on orders and money for full-fledged development, they simply have nowhere to take. Therefore, ambitious projects are needed, the customer sets clear requirements in terms of performance characteristics and deadlines, and the contractor, under his close supervision and financing, performs the task. These projects revive the industry, both in science and in production as a whole.

                  Who argues that did not do? To a certain point.
                  But in the future, you either did not understand me, or talk about completely different things. Do not confuse research (research work) and OCD? Research can be carried out on an initiative basis, but OCD ... I recall the only case when the designer of the Sukhoi Design Bureau reached the construction of a full-size wooden model of the future Su-25 - this is all that Pavel Osipovich allowed them to do. And then, it was out of the ordinary. Usually, as I said above, they were limited to the stage of outline design. Nobody built and tested a full-fledged plane, tank, ship behind the back of the Moscow Region.
                  Can you imagine the stages of creating an object? How is the creation of military equipment going on?

                  You see, modern military equipment is very complex. Components, components, assemblies, devices are made by a mass of third-party collaborators. And so that the “boss” could conduct the stage of OCD, and even more so to build a prototype, he must convince all the collaborators to work “for no reason,” and behind the back of the Moscow Region. How do you imagine this ???? In this way, you can only create small arms, where 1-2 people work on the project, and all details for the future machine, for example, can be made at the pilot production of design bureaus. You will never make a tank or a plane.

                I beg to differ. The same VAZ in an initiative order developed the design documentation and produced prototypes of more than a dozen cars not known to the general public. Not much of this went into the series. But one of these "initiative" in the end turned into a "Niva", which became the progenitor of a new class of cars, which are now called crossovers.
                In the aircraft industry of initiative developments in the USSR, it was even difficult to say how many dozens.

          The Soviet system, if you look, was one big corporation. Just at the time of the State Planning Commission, linking sectoral plans was in manual mode. theoretically, now it has become possible using supercomputer power.

        it is only then to circumvent bureaucratic obstacles. They might not have given money and permission for the new OCD, but for the modernization it was quite real. Yes, and it is necessary to explain why this, just putting the aircraft into service, begin to create a new one? (this is me for the Tu-22. Tupolev had to literally re-build the aircraft, eliminating their own jambs)

      In Soviet times, there was no capitalist system. The state paid for everything in one way or another. Today, every ruble is counted. Now the army is looking at the performance characteristics of military equipment, and if these performance characteristics of the army are not satisfied, then it will not buy it, and therefore they are waiting for a task on the performance characteristics of military equipment at manufacturing companies, so as not to be out of work. But they also design and build without signs from above .

      The development of a new deck-mounted helicopter is being carried out by the Kamova design bureau; launch into serial production is planned in 5-6 years. The exact dates have not yet been determined. Now Russian helicopter builders are preparing the first KA-65 “Lamprey” helicopter, it was his first photographs that leaked to the Internet. In the photographs, you can see that the helicopter is almost ready and flight tests can begin very soon.

        In fairness, it should be noted that satisfactory performance characteristics do not guarantee procurement. Examples - mass.

        bullshit. Counterexamples - mass. Starting from Abakan and Kalashnikov and ending with the Ka-50, Mistral, Iveco and MiGami. As before, lobbying and politics play a huge role. And TTX here in last place.

        waiting for the task on the performance characteristics of military equipment at manufacturers

        TTZ await at design companies. The manufacturer, as a rule, does not design anything. And they’re doing what they’re waiting for. Work on the basket desire is much lower than average.

        Read the memoirs of Grabin, the designer of artillery systems. He has the word “money” attached to each sample.

      outline design - yes, they could do it on their own initiative. But not more. Because it requires a technical task agreed upon with the Customer (MO). It is the military that must say what they need, and not the designer, to do on the principle of "I see it."

      Where did you read that? No major program was done without the relevant decisions of the "party and government." On an initiative basis, some episodic projects could be conducted. But that without a decision from above began to make a helicopter, this could not be.
      In addition, do not forget that in the USSR, design bureaus were state-owned, lived at the expense of the budget and so on, but salaries were paid there. And now KB is self-supporting ...

      In the sense of no certainty? Outline design has long been completed; design work has not yet begun. No one is going to produce a new deck helicopter. Everything is clear and definite.

      and what is unclear? We made a preliminary design, showed it to the customer. Now it’s up to the Moscow Region - do they need such a helicopter? If necessary, the MO should issue and agree on TTZ, and then conclude a contract for the development of research and development (and this is serious and expensive, lengthy work - the design bureau will not pay for it from its pocket)

    With Lamprey, everything is the same as the new anti-submarine aircraft. Already how many years one chatter, and things are still there. They are squeezing the last resource of Soviet technology and what is expected is not clear. While the fleet does not have anything left?

    Great KB was. May God save him. There is information about their merger with KB Mil.
    I remember in the early 80s with Gene designer S. Mikheev, we conducted flight tests in the Crimea (Solar Valley) of these of his helicopters, which were based on helicopter carriers. My ward NII-33 made a navigation and landing system on the ship and helicopters.

      It may be so, but usually it all comes down to financing the preparation of production. There equipment, tooling, tools, personnel, etc. etc., and even the construction of new plants or industries. Moreover, sometimes, along the whole chain, starting with new materials.

    One bullshit is on the agenda. The drawings were drawn, the models made - "whoever needs" they showed - and that’s it. Pretty, as they say, little by little. The launch of the OCD will be announced, as usual, with pomp. But later. So you can stretch one "Mosol" for a long time.

    Is that in the background, behind the civilian? Only pictures are online, if this is SUPER !! Imagine the equipment in such a body-bomb. I love coaxial spacecraft. I have been interested in them for more than 20 years. Such a direction! What a pity that they did not give them new engines on time. Of course, KAMovtsy try to increase speed, it is very interesting how? It is a pity if you need a traction screw, this will ruin the whole concept. The most promising areas of helicopter engineering and such nasty support.
