Chinese Air Force pilots talked about the most difficult stage of the WZ-10 helicopter flight exercises

It marks 10 years since the start of mass production in China of the first "own" attack helicopters WZ-10. The word "own" in this case is enclosed in quotation marks because the developers purely formally indicate the Chinese CAIC, but initially the development belongs to the Russian "Kamov" - project 941. The external "Kamov" appearance is quite recognizable, except that the helicopter is completed not by coaxial screw design, but by classic.


Recently, the Chinese Air Force decided to conduct large-scale training of helicopter crews.

In maneuvers, army brigades were involved aviation 72nd Air Army. The exercises were divided into two components: daytime and nighttime. They were performed in two groups - “red” and “blue” (their own and others).

Chinese Air Force:

Workouts were carried out in such areas as air combat, secretive penetration into the enemy’s area and an attack by ground forces and weapons. Information about the actions of flight links flocked to the maneuver control center and broadcast on screens.

Chinese pilots noted that the most difficult stage in the training of helicopter units was the operation in conditions of the use of electronic warfare by a conditional enemy. However, it is not reported which electronic warfare equipment was used in this case. According to some reports, DJG8715G electronic suppression and defense systems were used. These systems are designed to counter aviation and are in service with the ground forces of the PLA.

Chinese pilots said that one of the stages of the exercises is air combat "on the opposite courses." One of the PLA Air Force officers on Chinese TV reports that the air battle of the crews took place “in such a way that the helicopters converged almost face to face”.

Training and combat missions were carried out at extremely low altitudes - with the goal of reducing the threat of shelling from MANPADS. To counter man-portable air defense missile systems, maneuvering “with maximum operating conditions” was used.

    What are the "recognizable features of the Kamov Design Bureau" in the Z10?

      It does not matter.
      Milevtsy Kamov Design Bureau finally finished off. He is no more. A great victory.

        One design bureau is no longer able to make airplanes and helicopters ..... The same thing happened in the world

    The Chinese helicopter is similar to the MI-24 executed in the X-design, which is like Lada Vesta versus Kalina.

    '' Kamov Design Bureau (Kamov Design Bureau) took part in the creation of the new Chinese helicopter WZ-10. This was reported by the magazine "Canva Action Defense". As the newspaper notes, earlier between the Kamov Design Bureau and the PRC a dispute arose over the ownership of intellectual rights in the new WZ-10 combat helicopter. Representatives of the Russian company insisted that the rotorcraft was created about 10 years ago and bore the designation “Project 941 ″ in Russia, while the Chinese side denied this and reported that the WZ-10 was China’s own development. A representative of Kamov Design Bureau told Canva Defense magazine that his design bureau made a significant contribution to the development of the helicopter project, which later received the designation WZ-10. “Previously, Kamov Design Bureau and the Chinese side created a joint project team and worked on“ Project 941 ″ for about 2,5 years. A catalog of drawings has been created. The main technical requirements - weight and dimensions - were put forward by the Chinese side. Design Bureau Kamova carried out design work in accordance with these parameters, ”the representative of the Russian company said.

      I’m just wondering if, "According to Mikheev, the project was developed strictly in accordance with the requirements of China and is not based on the projects of any Soviet attack helicopters. According to the general designer, the participation of Kamov was limited only to the preliminary design stage and ended after the Chinese side adopted the concept of the 941 project for further development, after which China independently carried out the rest of the development work on the Z-10, including the creation and refinement of prototypes and serial helicopters, "t what disputes may be about the ownership of intellectual rights?

    Well done, they bought the project and put it into series. We would still have passed tests like the same Ka-62

    Well, they are their own, since all rights to the helicopter belong to the Chinese side. The general designer of Kamov, Sergei Mikheev, said that in 1995, at the request of the Chinese government, a conceptual design of the helicopter was created, which was not based on any existing helicopters and was carried out strictly to the requirements provided by the Chinese side. After completing work and testing the design of the project, it was transferred to the customer, the contract was completed and Kamov did not participate in the further development of work on the Z-10 helicopter. All other development work by the Chinese designers themselves carried out.

      "The external" Kamovskiy "look is quite recognizable, except that the helicopter is made not according to the coaxial screw design, but according to the classical one."
      As for me, this is one in one Eurocopter Tiger or Augusta A-129.
