The first Be-200ES for the Ministry of Defense arrived in Yeysk

The first Be-200ES amphibious aircraft for the Russian Ministry of Defense July 14, 2020 arrived in Yeysk. The meeting of the aircraft was held in the 190th training mixed aviation regiment on the basis of the 859th Center for Combat Training and Retraining of the Naval Marine aviation The Russian Navy.


The plane received its own name "Alexander Mamkin" in honor of the civil pilot Alexander Mamkin, who took part in the operation "Zvezdochka" to evacuate to the rear in 1944 the pupils of Polotsk orphanage No. 1.

According to the bmpd blog, this Be-200ES is the first built under a revised contract signed in 2018 by the Ministry of Defense with the UAC to supply the Naval Aviation with three Be-200ES aircraft. Aircraft will be delivered in the search and rescue version with fire extinguishing function. The remaining two aircraft should be delivered before the end of 2020, but this raises some doubts.


The first contract for the Ministry of Defense to supply six Be-200 amphibious aircraft - two Be-200ES aircraft and four modified Be-200PS aircraft (without fire fighting function) - was concluded in 2013. In 2017, the contract was terminated due to the inability of TANTK to build aircraft. In 2018, the contract was renewed, ordering only three Be-200ES aircraft.


The Be-200ES aircraft handed over to the Ministry of Defense was the first one built under the contract of 2018 and the seventh production aircraft taking into account the six Be-200ES, built at the TANTK in 2016-2018 for the Russian Ministry of Emergencies.

Before that, in turn, nine Be-200 aircraft were built - two flight prototypes at TANTK and seven production Be-200ES at the Irkutsk Aviation Plant from 2003 to 2011. Six of them were delivered by the EMERCOM of Russia and one by the EMERCOM of Azerbaijan. Thus, a total of 16 flight specimens of the Be-200 were built.

    And what functions will this type of aircraft perform as part of the Russian Aerospace Forces? They are released in very limited instances ... In the open sea he is not able to land, or he will only sit down once ... I don’t even know what he is for! belay

      The Be-200 narrow-profile aircraft ... an attempt to use the IL-76 as a firefighting aircraft in the Irkutsk region ended poorly.
      Reviews of specialists about the Be-200 as a specialized fire-fighting aircraft are very good.

        What am I talking about? The functions of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation include neither the fight against natural disasters, nor the extinguishing of fires !!!

      These "previously acquired" ones will soon become the largest number of Motor Sich releases until 2014. The situation with TV3-117 in 2014-2015 was especially indicative, when almost twice as many helicopters were delivered as the Klimovites delivered sets of domestic engines for them.

          And he is two in one. Ambivalent, so to speak.
          When he delayed negotiations with the Russian Federation until the last days, regarding the organization of production of TV3-117 engines on the territory of the Russian Federation, yes, bastard. He wagged for ten years, looking for the most profitable option. And he was driven to the fact that in the end it turned out to be cheaper for the Russian Federation to build its plant on the basis of Klimov Design Bureau.
          But how the post-Maidan times came - then Boguslaev immediately became well-done businessman... Formally, there is no export of engines from Ukraine to the Russian Federation. In fact, the production of our engines does not interfere with the production of helicopters. And helicopters, nevertheless, are delivered to customers. And I still don’t take those aircraft of ours for which Motor Sich is a monopoly on engines - but which are nevertheless being built.

        The logic is elusive: the Be-200s were sent to both Greece and Italy to extinguish fires. At the same time that the Baikal reserves were burning (Mi-8 puffed up) .O. Olkhon was invisible due to smoke, the aircraft could not enter. If I don’t confuse anything, Ilov won after the transfer. Well, and the heat subsided, the rains began to rain in places ...
        On the topic ... IMHO from the Be-200 search engine with strong limitations But, it’s better than the B-12. For optimization, you need to formulate a TK and use tactics in accordance with the existing aircraft.

        "We plan to create a gas generator next year, to undergo certification in 2023," he said.
        Enough funds have been allocated for the project, noted Artyakov. "The volume of investments is sufficient to ensure that all work on the creation of a new engine is carried out efficiently and on time."

Now our PD-14, according to its characteristics, has a pretty good hot part, though. tore off, but the compressor and wide-chord TND blades - their own, even competes (except for efficiency) already with LEAP, although the French are tricky here, it's just an improved 56th.

      It was planned to replace this power plant with the French-Russian SaM146 (which are also used on Superjet-100 civilian aircraft), however, in April 2019, the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation informed the Ministry of Industry and Trade about the risks of disrupting the defense order due to the sanctions introduced, in particular, because that these engines use components from NATO member countries.

          As far as I understand, PD-14 is a modular engine. After testing and launching into production, on its basis they can quickly create a fairly large range of engines of the type PD-8/10/18

            Correct. (Although the very concept of "modularity", "submodularity" in engine building is somewhat different). PD-14 is ready. Make the same PD-8 - reduce the diameter of the compressor, wheels. steps, etc. - and voila. We only need money and for the purpose.

          It would, of course, be good, but it seems to be from the category of Khrushchev's statement about building communism in 1980.

      Tell me in France that Putin was and is?
      Multipurpose fighter Rafal - started development in 1983, in 1983 the very first prototype took off, it was possible to launch a series in 2001.
      Total from the beginning of work to the first serial 18 years. Compare with the Su-57? From the take-off of the first prototype to the first production 10 years.
      Conclusion - you are not even a little bit familiar with the topic ..

        ))) you can scream anything and minus too, the economy will not work from this. And to spit on France from a high bell tower, the first Su-57 serial was dropped, so it is not there yet. Who is not in the subject, I think you are.

          Of course you, it’s not me who is constantly carrying nonsense ...
          You are not even able to realize an elementary example. Experienced, the first in a series dropped from everyone. The United States also. So sorry my case is purely medical

          you can scream anything and minus too,

          Tantrum is bad ...

    Dear, you just read and understand the feat of the Hero, whose name is the new plane!

    "The events in question took place in the winter of 1943-44, when
    the Nazis made a brutal decision: to use the pupils of Polotsk
    orphanage # 1 as donors. German wounded soldiers needed
    blood.
    Where can I get it? In children. The first to defend the boys and girls
    Director of the orphanage Mikhail Stepanovich Forinko. Of course for the occupiers
    pity, compassion and, in general, the very fact of such
    atrocities, so it was immediately clear: these are not arguments.

    But the reasoning became weighty: how can sick and hungry children give
    good blood? No way. They don't have enough vitamins in their blood, or even that
    the same iron. In addition, there is no firewood in the orphanage, the windows are broken, it is very cold.
    Children catch colds all the time, and patients - what kind of donors are they?
    Children should first be cured and fed, and only then used.
    The German command agreed with this "logical" decision. Michael
    Stepanovich Forinko proposed to transfer children and staff of the children's
    houses in the village of Belchitsy, where a strong German garrison was located. AND
    again, iron, heartless logic worked.
    The first, disguised step towards saving the children was taken ... And then
    great, thorough preparation began. The children were to be transferred to
    guerrilla zone, and then ferried by plane.
    And on the night of February 18-19, 1944, 154 pupils left the village
    orphanage, 38 of their educators, as well as members of the underground group
    "Fearless" with their families and partisans of the Shchors detachment of the brigade
    named after Chapaev.
    The children were from three to fourteen years old. And that's all - everything! - were silent,
    were afraid to even breathe. The elders carried the younger ones. Who didn't have warm clothes
    - wrapped in scarves and blankets. Even the three year old kids understood
    mortal danger - and were silent ...
    In case the Nazis understand everything and go in pursuit, near the village
    partisans were on duty, ready to join the battle. And in the forest I was expecting kids
    sled train - thirty carts. Pilots helped a lot. On the fateful night they
    knowing about the operation, they circled over Belchitsy, diverting the attention of the enemies.
    The kids were warned: if suddenly there are lighting in the sky
    rockets, you must immediately sit down and not move. During the journey the column
    sat down several times. Everyone reached the deep partisan rear.
    Now they had to evacuate the children over the front line.
    The 3rd Air Army came to the rescue, the pilots began to take out the children and the wounded,
    delivering ammunition to partisans at the same time.
    Two planes were allocated, under the wings they attached special
    capsules cradles, which could fit an additional several people.
    Plus, the pilots flew out without navigators - this place was also saved for
    passengers. In general, more than five hundred people were taken out during the operation. But
    Now we will focus on only one flight, the very last.

    Feat of Alexander Mamkin

    It took place on the night of April 10-11, 1944. Drove the children of the guard lieutenant
    Alexander Mamkin. He was 28 years old. A native of the village of Krestyanskoe
    Voronezh region, graduate of the Oryol financial and economic
    technical school and Balashov school.
    By the time of the events in question, Alexander Mamkin was already experienced
    pilot. Behind - not less than seventy night flights to the German rear.
    That flight was for him in this operation (it was called "Asterisk") not
    first and ninth. Lake Vechelje was used as an airfield.
    I had to hurry also because the ice every day became everything
    unreliable. Ten children fit on the R-5 plane, their teacher
    Valentina Latko and two wounded partisans.
    At first everything went well, but when approaching the front line, Mamkin’s plane
    knocked out. The front line was left behind, and the P-5 was on fire ... Be Mamkin on board
    alone, he would have climbed and parachuted out. But he was not flying alone. AND
    not going to give the death of boys and girls. Not for that, only
    who began to live, on foot at night fled from the Nazis in order to crash.
    And Mamkin was flying the plane ... The flame reached the cockpit. From temperature
    flight goggles melted, sticking to the skin. Clothes, a headset, burned in smoke and
    the fire was hard to see. From the legs, only bones slowly remained. And there, behind
    back of the pilot, crying was heard. Children were afraid of fire, they did not want to die.
    And Alexander Petrovich flew the plane almost blindly. Overcoming the hellish
    pain, already, one might say, legless, he still stood firmly between
    children and death. Mamkin found a platform on the lake, near
    from the Soviet units. The partition that separated it from the burned-out
    passengers, some began to smolder clothes.
    But death, swinging a scythe over the children, could not lower it. Mamkin not
    gave. All passengers remained alive. Alexander Petrovich completely
    incomprehensibly he was able to get out of the cab. He managed to ask: "Are the children alive?"
    And I heard the voice of the boy Volodya Shishkov: “Comrade pilot, don't worry!
    I opened the door, everyone is alive, we go out ... "

    And Alexander Petrovich Mamkin lost consciousness. The doctors could not
    explain how he could drive the car and even land safely
    her man, in whose face glasses were melted, and only legs were left
    bones?
    How could he overcome the pain, shock, with what efforts did he keep his consciousness?
    The hero was buried in the village of Maklok in the Smolensk region. From that day everything
    the fighting friends of Alexander Petrovich, meeting already under a peaceful sky,
    the first toast was drunk:
    For Sasha, who had been growing up without a father since two years old and remembered very well the children's grief.
    For Sasha, who wholeheartedly loved boys and girls. For Sasha,
    who bore the name Mamkin and himself, like a mother, gave his children life.
    "For Sasha!" ...

    Curriculum Vitae:
    Alexander Petrovich Mamkin, Guard Lieutenant. Born in 1916 in the village
    Peasant Voronezh region From 1931 he worked on a collective farm, in 1934 he entered
    in Oryol Financial and Economic College. In 1936 as part of the 9th
    set entered the Balashov school of the Civil Air Fleet. In 1938 became a candidate member

    to the German rear to the partisans on the R-5 plane.

    from the German rear (10 children, 3 adults) on their territory; died of burns

    The aircraft is valid. Congratulations to the aircraft manufacturer on this.
    I can’t understand the current fashion of giving names to airplanes.
    Why, what? .. This also emphasizes the moment that they are being built - piece!
    Our SZ at one time produced dozens of "Vultures", "Sunrise".
    It never occurred to anyone to call them something!
    Order number, project number. All!

    The 859th Center for Combat Training and Retraining of Flight Personnel of the Naval Aviation of the Russian Navy is not the organization that would search for ways to use the Be-200 in the RF MA. Why the Navy needs it himself, the chief of the MA does not know. We got that shoved, well, okay.
