We will “soon” again build new medium transport aircraft

Many media outlets not only in Russia, but also in the United States and Europe have recently cautiously reported that the concept of a new medium military transport aircraft to replace the An-12 has finally been approved.  


"The decision on the concept of a medium military transport aircraft has actually been made. It is necessary to complete the necessary documents," RIA reported News according to an unnamed source.

Indeed, the problem of aging of the BTA aircraft fleet is very acute. And the planes themselves are outdated both morally and physically. An-12 is a brainchild from the distant 50s of the last century. Let me remind you that the An-12 made its first flight in 1957! This particular aircraft is the only vehicle in the niche of medium-sized transport aircraft.

It is clear that the delay in the final decision of the Moscow Region is caused in many respects by the competition between the two firms - Ilyushin and Tupolev. Both design bureaus have very clear concepts for the new aircraft. Projects have been developed for a long time and were phased out for economic reasons. 

It would seem that it is easier to give both companies the opportunity to develop their own aircraft, and then compare the results. Indeed, this is how the best Soviet cars were created aviation. Conversations at the idea level can be continued indefinitely. But the finished product, built taking into account all the "pitfalls" that exist in the manufacturing sector, will give the customer the opportunity to compare real cars and order the best.

But the fact of the matter is that today we live in a new world. A world where everything is mixed up. Both firms are part of one corporation - UAC. That is, in fact, the cost of creating a new aircraft is paid by one center. And two parts of one corporation are invited to compete. That's where the "mine" is laid.

Remember last year’s winning reports? “In September 2019, the design bureau will be finally determined, which will create an average military transport aircraft by order of the Russian Ministry of Defense.” How much material was then on this issue. How many dreams about the timing of the project. So, what is next?

And then there was a meeting of the UAC scientific and technical council at the end of September 2019. Leading specialists of the United Aircraft Corporation discussed the projects of Ilyushin and Tupolev. Result? Won ... no one. Both projects were "raw" and required improvement. The decision was postponed to the end of November.

Realizing that the customers would not just lag behind the UAC, in December the general director Yuri Slyusar said in an interview with the same news agency about two options for the machine of the future. Draft designs of aircraft were created and, supposedly, clear requirements for future machines were determined.

It would seem that you still need the UAC? "The goals are set, the tasks are set, for work, comrades!" But something went wrong again. The corporation again "pulls the rubber." Mid April 2020 “It is necessary to complete the necessary documents ...”. How long does it take? Year? Two? Three?

It is clear that there is no other way than to create your own SVTS. "Friendship, brotherhood of peoples, international cooperation" and so on, for us the stage has already passed. This position is too expensive for us. In key issues, Russia should rely on its own developments.

Use the scientific and achievements of other countries? Yes! To buy ready-made promising technologies? Yes! To buy licenses and production technologies of some units in order to develop their own production in the future? Yes! But all this should lead to the development of our own industries. own design and engineering, own economy, in the end.

I don’t know which machines today are considered by experts as promising, basic. Most likely we are talking about the IL-276 and Tu-330. At least, it seems to me that these machines will be the basis. 

If the competition within one corporation does not look somewhat typical, then the creation of a new UAC unit that will unite the designers of Ilyushin and Tupolev into a single team seems logical. A company, even if it’s temporary, created to solve a specific problem, uniting the best forces of the industry, will quickly solve the problem.

The country needs an average transport plane! The army needs an average transport plane! Moreover, he needs "just yesterday." So, the KLA will receive funding. So, if the need arises, new plants will be built.

Today the fleet of our transport workers of all classes is almost twice as small as the American one! Something about 250 cars against more than 400 American ones. For our territories, this is practically nothing. 

Yes, they lost the Soviet backlog in the person of Antonov. But it's time to create your own, Russian.

    Well, the country is already several times inferior to the United States, even simply in terms of population.
    But it's time to create your own, Russian.
    It's hard to argue.

      Need more UAC? "The goals are set, the tasks are set, for work, comrades!" But something went wrong again. The corporation again "pulls the rubber."

      --a just ask the KLA for a delay of time?
      Or "customers" have not defined the TK (and the project "what do you want")?

      Even despite the fact that we live completely on the backlog of the USSR and that we are in opera .. even despite the fact that we ourselves pay for housing and communal services, we buy apartments, we pay for treatment, we take children to kindergarten for a fee, we pay for roads, etc. .. even in spite of all this in opera .. How is it possible, the USSR was almost free and the second economy, we had half the world on our neck and our own citizens were socially protected .. and now, all at our expense, but for some reason in ope ..

        And the oligarchs in the USSR were? Because everything was almost free, because the funds were distributed much more evenly.

          What is it? And you know that in the USSR the level of subsidies for the Russophobic Balts could reach 900-1000 rubles. per person per year? Well, evenly rob the RSFSR, so that the Baltic states live well and the Negro. I suspect that this is precisely why the Union was allowed to disintegrate, because smart people understood that this system, which took shape after Stalin's death, could not be broken without blood. The "robbed" Georgians, when the Union collapsed, the rails were dismantled so that the Russian drunks could not finally rob and take them out. Tellingly, the benefits of civilization in Georgia came to an end already in 1992.

        I don’t know how this is possible. Probably because the trip to the Soviet dentist was a natural quest to complete, but there was nothing in the shops. There was GDP, but no diaper. Indeed, as possible.

                  and what has changed in the development of the country since the 90s? as there was a commodity economy, it remained the same, oil fell-all-a catastrophe in the economy was outlined for some reason in the commodity countries right there. What has changed since the 90s? tuned roads and machinery and equipment, foreign electronics bought? do you measure the success of economic development?

                  Yes, oil will fall to 5 bucks, as in the 90s and without the NWF the economy will be kapets right away, the 90s will come right there, so what is the difference between the economy from that time, except for the accumulated "pillow"? Is this development over 20 years? to have a "financial cushion" to protect against falling oil prices?

                  There were in the history of raw superdezhavi-the Spanish Empire, Argentina, one of the richest in the world then. They had roads, all kinds of high bugs among citizens .. and where are they now compared to competitors?

                    You are somehow drawn to the heights, and you will go down to the ground. The people in the 90s thought how to feed themselves, but now they have built houses, bought cars, go to resorts abroad, not oligarchs, as in the 90s, but ordinary engineers living around me, not some kind of "average", but specific that's behind the fence. And they do not work at Gazprom, but at Rostselmash.
                    Of course I would like to live better, my pension and salary are bigger, but it's cool to scold the government with absolutely nothing to do with the problems of Russia as a whole. "Everyone imagines himself a strategist, seeing the battle from the outside." Why don't you personally go to govern the country, since you know so well how to do it?

                        Well what are you! I do not teach you or tell you what to do! Just from your messages it is clear that you personally know how to do it right, so do it! I have not tried to run the country (at most, a "middle-class" plant) and therefore I do not criticize the government, because I do not know all the circumstances under which these or those decisions are made. And your statements remind me of an anecdote that in Russia only 11 people do not know how to play football. Suppose you are a pilot, and I am a driver, then how can I criticize your actions, after all, this is nonsense, and since you criticize the government, it means that somewhere you successfully led the state. Can you find out how?
                        Yes, I support the existing government, although I disagree with many things. But this is the best power of those that were, although it is far from ideal. How did you decide that someone better will come to Putin's place! Someone makes promises there, so the current ones also promise a lot. And if there is no difference, then why change one for the other! Or are you one of those who just want to remove Putin? So this "wind" is known from where it blows. I do not like Putin, do not vote for him, it does not matter whether he is "reset" or not.

                        You know, I'll use your logic a little.
                        According to your logic and the President, elections are not needed, because about the decision and the person who came forward, you can say in your words "I do not know all the circumstances under which certain decisions are made." Well, that's how, people who have never ruled the country can decide who is able to govern, and who is not .. Their opinion is nothing, they were not Presidents, is it so?

    If competition within one corporation does not look somewhat typical, then the creation of a new UAC unit that will unite the designers of Ilyushin and Tupolev into a single team seems logical.
    -----------------------------

      There are no more constructors in these "KB". The above design bureaus exist only because some types of aircraft developed in Soviet times are still flying.
      For aircraft design, software and computers developed in the USA are used.

      If these IlTu or TuIL are created under the auspices of the FSB, such as sharashka, then it can be useful when everyone will be responsible for their area of ​​work, rather than trying to snatch a tidbit. But we do not already live in the late thirties and early forties of the last century, and therefore we must give money to both design bureaus and choose the best project based on the results of our work. Yes, it is more expensive and longer in time, and a lot is stolen, but this is the reality now.

    It is clear that in many respects the delay in the final decision of the Moscow Region is caused in many respects by the competition between two firms - Ilyushin and Tupolev.

    Competition is when several manufacturers offer their products, and the customer chooses the best for himself. And when two competitors throw mud at each other, but at the same time they have nothing "for their souls", then this is most likely "modern Russian democracy."
    And I also remembered AL Mints' dictum when he invited me to join the ABM alliance with him: "The main thing is to stake out a problem for ourselves, but how to build a bridge - along or across - then we'll figure it out."

    By the centennial of the An-12, let everyone agree and complete it ... this will be epoch-making. Another confirmation that our design school in the hardest knockout - the patient is more likely dead than alive ... although the newest transport elephant (frankly shitty name for the celestial bird) and another similar verbal freak like (sorry that not a pug) is on its way - the rumor goes. Do we, in general, from scratch at least some heavy and medium-sized celestial machines are actually produced? Or are the USSR’s blanks being pulled out of the bins and aposly pulled by an owl on the globe, passing them off for new boards And with endless mudification per hour on a teaspoon? They correctly write that we are not the USSR an hour ... then why is there almost no international cooperation in this regard (with the Chinese this is an isolated case and we will also see what happens on the exhaust). We plan to apply the bioengineering achievements in terms of creating lines, contours, picking REALLY air vehicles from the 21st century (do not be lazy and see what has been sculpted for an hour at the level of existing production vehicles and prototypes being developed in the global aircraft industry). I have the impression of simulating running around on the spot (and maybe lying) in this sector of aviation ... and this is not just stagnation, it’s purely my opinion.

In the 00s, when the equipment was not new, they all financed all the time, now the military has received new equipment, in some respects Soviet rubbish has already been almost completely written off, civilians who wanted to buy it too.

      Instead of keeping several zombies on a starvation diet, for the sake of the visibility of the competition, it is better to gather specialists in one KB and provide them with work for normal money. However, the process goes naturally. Remember Talikov’s excuses after failing with IL-112. All sensible specialists went to Irkut to develop the MS-21. Maybe it’s worth giving this work to those who really know how to develop airplanes, rather than pulling out Soviet-era projects from under the cloth. Their quality was clearly demonstrated by the IL-112.

          Different design bureaus were geographically located in different corners of the country. This allowed team-administrative methods to distribute people after high schools and control their movements. In exchange, it was necessary to provide the design bureau and related factories relatively evenly with work, and this always contributed to the excessive variety of military equipment adopted for armament, developed as part of contests alone. This was especially pronounced in the Navy. But the army with three types of MBT did not lag behind laughing . But over time, controlling people has become problematic, and with the development of tyrnet, often people do not need to move physically. The trend towards enlargement can be seen all over the world. Competition is at the interstate or interblock level. An example of this is a pair of Boeing - Airbus. Only recently, Komak and Irkut are trying to dilute this sweet couple. Other civilian aircraft manufacturers from Canada and Brazil safely digest A and B.

          In the USSR, there was a slightly different level of funding, and, importantly, a fundamentally different need, both in terms of the number of aircraft and the rate of their renewal. Now, when in the same fighter aircraft there is only one fundamentally new project, and this project will be in production, as it were, not human life, there can be no few design bureaus. Even if several parallel groups are formed, then all the losers will have to take the visor and work on the winning project, because the next. the competition will only be with their children, if not grandchildren.

        Then why in the Union were all kinds of aircraft models of different design bureaus? You can’t blame the USSR for the excessive encouragement of scientists and designers, but they considered it necessary to maintain just a few bureaus because no one canceled the narrow specialization, as well as the different focus of developments, the purpose of products and the peculiarity of their designs.

          The reason for this is the enormous size of the USSR and the logistical difficulties associated with this. Each design bureau had its own factories, these factories had their own unique equipment, technologies, and suppliers located on a territorial basis. Thus, a unique territorial conglomerate with its technological capabilities was obtained. Each design bureau is guided by its manufacturers. as a consequence, it was problematic to force such a conglomerate to produce other people's developments, and each one made his own unique product.

    That would probably be the right way. The plane has already proved everything to everyone. Upgrade the glider, change the engines, avionics and forward. It will cost orders of magnitude cheaper cars from scratch. After IL-76, after all, we went along this path. But this is on condition that you need a result. And if there is a cut in the task, then the An-12 quite flies to the 100th anniversary, and there will be nothing to replace it, except for words and projects.

    There is no mystery. Over the past 30 years, in the capital and the surrounding area, design has progressed according to a very small selection of scenarios.
    1. Ten sheets of paper and CD disk with nonsense are for rent. A billion is being formed under this case. This was the most common way.
    2. A designer from the province is invited, together with his company, a project is done, then they throw stupid provincials. This was the second most popular method, but it is of limited use. It doesn’t work out to design planes, tanks and spaceships — real design takes a lot of time, you have to give too much money to stupid provincials, which is unacceptable. Too many bribes need to be distributed, and palaces in Europe with yachts will not buy themselves.
    3. Promise development, get an advance and dump.
    No more design was conducted in Russia, it is not being conducted, and none of those who milk the state on this topic is going to change this situation. If you look closely at the listed methods, then they have something in common. Have you noticed? In no way is there a place for professional designers. In the second case, the designers seem to be there, but they are actively destroyed in it - a couple of times you will pay off the debts that have arisen from Moscow scammers, and for your whole life you will no longer be up to the design ...
    However, at the moment, all of a sudden (so suddenly) REAL design was needed. And then it turned out to be a perfect fantasy - there is no one to really design. Well, that is, in general. Designers of paper for method number 1, these are not designers, and nothing can be done with them. It takes decades to learn to be a real specialist. The provincials were physically destroyed long ago, they are running away from debts, and for the most part they simply left. The only cool aircraft designers left in Russia are working for Boeing. But they are so "gorged" on the amazing meanness in their field that they would rather leave for the United States to wash the floors than work for those fantastic creatures that forced the elite of Russian design to leave Boeing.
    Do you think these ... wonderful bosses of this wonderful "aircraft corporation" have organizational problems? Hehe ... The real project is simply NOBODY to do, that's all. Even if they promise for the design of world-class aircraft not 30 thousand rubles a month, as now, but all 32! Well, how did it happen, well, I just don't understand ...

    There were in the history of raw superdezhavi-the Spanish Empire, Argentina, one of the richest in the world then. They had roads, all kinds of high bugs among citizens .. and where are they now compared to competitors?

    You are somehow drawn to the heights, and you go down to earth. People in the 90s thought how to feed themselves, but now they have built houses, bought cars, go to foreign resorts not oligarchs, as in the 90s, but ordinary engineers living around me.
    And then they bring any infection here, and the rest who do not go - what are they to blame if such "riders" like you, having satisfied their suffering of the 90s over the hill, then drag the coronavirus into the country, or some other rubbish! Would be silent, sufferer! sad

    Yes, the An-12 is of course the dinosaur of our air fleet, although not the only one, the Tu-95 is also almost the same age as this airplane.
    And if with a bomber it’s still somehow more - it’s less clear how much and how to fly it yet, then the 12th board is operated on virtually no alternative conditions.
    It is high time to replace it with something more modern and meeting the requirements of the current time, and not the middle of the last century.
    I have an acquaintance with aviation related to this aircraft, or rather, my brother An-10, I flew my first flight as a passenger on it from Kharkov to Moscow in 1963, and then I jumped from the 12th side in the army and now I meet him often in the sky and at airports in Russia and abroad.
    He will soon glorify us in the Guinness book, but now he, alas, dishonors us as a country that does not have its own modern transport aircraft.
    Sorry for the old man, but it's time to change.

    Each design bureau had its own factories, these factories had their own unique equipment, technologies, and suppliers located on a territorial basis.

    Yeah. IL-76 Tashkent, IL 86 Voronezh - very close by.

    This is no longer funny, you have to constantly hear, we will, this is a breakthrough, killers of bonings and airbuses, etc. etc. headlines on the first pages and from each iron, but then in small print and in passing at night between the virus and the snow in the Arctic, something went wrong. Make it, run it, and then download and rejoice, otherwise in 30 years not a single aircraft engine, Soviet developments are no longer able to bring to mind, there is nothing to replace the poor An-2 with (before that, not so long ago, they also shouted - do not shut up that "tomorrow" we will overwhelm the entire world small aircraft), rejoiced, the model of the concept of the Elephant was blown away (it will take another 50 years until the need disappears by itself or the "office" is dispersed), they still fly on royal rockets, old-new "not destiny "to bring to mind, and the loot has already been mastered. Or it might be better to talk about how and most importantly by whom personally, by whose orders and activities, by whose orders the aviation industry was destroyed and destroyed, reducing the legendary design bureaus and enterprises, destroying flight schools and research institutes. In general, for our (no longer ours) managing and degrading class, which is more like a colonial administration looking after a semi-colonial, "pipe" economy, this whole "hemorrhoid" is too difficult and profit is so-so, and there is a lot of trouble and costs, but here also the crisis drove them into a complete stupor. As always, there are zero plans for Gramadie, no one is responsible for anything, the money spent, sorry, the money spent does not count, we will "squeeze" something from the people, for the sun light, for example. But all that is needed is patriotic, highly professional leadership, and most importantly, with the highest degree of responsibility for the results of decisions and work, categorical exclusion of the influence of external interference and control through the instruments of external neo-colonial management of the Central Bank and the Higher School of Economics, etc. similar NGOs.

    But what's the difference how many years the platform for cruise missiles has amers, the A 52 has been successfully operating since the mid-50s, as well as the C 130, by the way.

    After abandoning the AN-70 project, there will be no more other similar AN-12 variants. Forge the iron, without departing from the cash register, as they say .... but it is a pity, the excellent flyer was ....
