The new RD-93MA engine enters the bench test phase in a pressure chamber

The new dual-circuit turbojet engine RD-93MA developed by "ODK-Klimov" will undergo bench tests in the thermal pressure chamber of the P.I. Baranova (TsIAM), a new power plant will have to confirm the altitude and speed characteristics in flight simulation conditions. This was reported by the press service of the United Engine Corporation (UEC).


As explained in the corporation, the complex of tests in the large thermal chamber CIAM will be held as part of the design and experimental work on RD-93MA. Upon successful completion of this test phase, the engine will go to the flight design stage. The engine has already been shipped from St. Petersburg to Moscow.

During tests for the engine conditions will be simulated as close as possible to flight. The operation of the BARK-93MA engine automatic control system will be checked

- said in a statement.

RD-93MA - a new aircraft engine with improved performance compared to the base RD-93. The power plant in addition to the engine includes an automatic control system BARK-93MA and a box of aircraft units KSA-54M.

The thermodynamic parameters have been improved, the design of the fan and the hot part has been improved, the automatic control system of the power plant has been modernized. The main indicators are also increased - the assigned resource and traction. An additional emergency engine start mode in the air is provided and the possibility of emergency fuel drain

- explained in the UEC.

The basic RD-93 is used on single-engine aircraft, for example, on Pakistani JF-17 fighters. These engines are shipped to China.

            On the JF-17 Thunder, the RD-93MA engine.
            At the China Defense forum, it is reported that Russia seeks to maintain the role of engine supplier for the FC-1 / JF-17 and offers an improved turbofan RD-93MA with an afterburner traction of 9300 kg.

          I doubt very much. The resource of many MiG-29s is running out. It is easier to purchase new MiG-35s for decades to come with standard RD-33MK engines.

              I will give an example of what can happen to the Mig-29 glider.
              It took another two weeks for the same Interfax-AVN, from the words of the same Mr. Bainetov, to confirm: “The cause of the MiG-29 disaster was the destruction of the aircraft keel in the air due to corrosion, the cause of which has not yet been identified. -two months. " "However," the general continued, "preventive measures were taken, inspections of many aircraft. Those fighters, where corrosion was not detected, and this is about 30%, were allowed for further flights, and these flights are being carried out."


              The RSK MiG (developer and manufacturer of the MiG-29) still refuses to comment on the situation. But another representative of the Russian military-industrial complex, in a conversation with a Kommersant correspondent, agreed that "the reason for the latest accidents of the MiG-29 was elementary old age and wear of components and assemblies." The assigned resource of the fighter's airframe is 2,5 thousand flight hours, or 20 years of service. After that, in principle, it can be extended "as it is" - for another 1 hours, subject to thorough diagnostics and repair, which is practically not carried out in the conditions of the Russian Air Force. The 275th Aircraft Repair Plant of the Ministry of Defense in Krasnodar carries out overhaul of a few copies, while most machines require it. For example, the MiG-29, which took the life of a pilot from Domna, was overhauled in 1997.

        JF-17 is a clone of the Soviet MIG-21. Vietnam, as they wrote recently, has 21 MIGs in service and wants a single-engine aircraft from Russia. So, perhaps, the new engine will go to the Vietnamese to modernize their technology.

      For export .
      Currently, several engine modifications have been created with a lower arrangement of the box of engine units (RD-33N, RD-93, SMR-95) for single-engine fighters including the MiG-21, Mirage III, Mirage F-1, etc.

      The SMR-95 engine has successfully passed flight tests on fighters of the South African Air Force Super Cheetah D-2. As a result of installing the SMR-95 engine on them (full throttle thrust increased by 16%, specific fuel consumption decreased by 25%), flight performance and combat effectiveness of aircraft increased by 1,2-3 times.

          The 33rd also has more than one version. And the craving is different. 93 is made on the basis of some fresh version of the 33rd

    In my opinion, I read about it a couple of years ago. Planned on the MiG-35. But it's all the same, RD33, development began in 1968. There is definitely no breakthrough. Only eat money, state. South Africa, Mirage III, Maybe some UBS, but the main consumer is the MiG-29/35. Probably the Indians kicked in the ass

      RD-93MA will be more powerful. Develop, improve
      RD-33.
      The following engines were developed on the basis of RD-33:

      RD-33 series 2 and series 3 - for MiG-29 aircraft of all modifications;
      RD-33OVT (with a deflected thrust vector) - for MiG-29 aircraft of all modifications;
      RD-93 for the aircraft JF-17 (China);
      RD-33MK for MiG-29K / KUB, MiG-29M / M2, MiG-35 aircraft.

      Already flies in 3 subgenerations.
      1-2 - simple 4ka, classic LMFI.


      3 - already 4+ with AFAR and avionics with elements of the 5th generation, probably the engine from the article is being prepared just for it.

    RD-93 was specifically designed for the JF-17:
    The following engines were developed on the basis of RD-33:

    RD-33 series 2 and series 3 - for MiG-29 aircraft of all modifications;
    RD-33OVT (with a deflected thrust vector) - for MiG-29 aircraft of all modifications;
    RD-93 for the aircraft JF-17 (China);
    RD-33MK for MiG-29K / KUB, MiG-29M / M2, MiG-35 aircraft.
    On new modifications of the engines of the RD-33 family, a digital control and monitoring system BARK-88 is installed. Installation of BARK-88 on previously manufactured engines in operation is provided.

    Taken from the official website of OJSC Klimov:
    https://klimov.ru/production/aircraft/RD-33-family/

    The RD-93MA with enhanced traction is designed specifically for the JF-17 Block3:

    The RD-93MA, which has higher thrust than the RD-93 engine currently used in the JF-17 fighters, aims to increase the carrying capacity of the weapon and the maximum flight speed of the JF-17. It is also known that the RD-93MA has a lower thermal path than the RD-93. The new engine was developed specifically for the JF-17 Block III.
