Ukraine plans to launch mass production of domestic helicopters

Ukraine intends to launch mass production of domestic light multipurpose helicopters. The creation of the Ukrainian helicopter will be carried out by a private company LLC Aviation company "Vector". Reported by Defense Express.


It is reported that the program for the production of helicopters is given four years. During the first three years, design documentation will be developed in three stages, prototypes of the helicopter will be built, tested and certified, and in the fourth year serial production will already start and the company will release the first batch of helicopters. Antonov's facilities are being considered as the enterprise that will produce the helicopter.

As follows from the materials, the new lightweight multifunctional helicopter will be created on the basis of the four-seater VM-4 Shmel helicopter, developed by the Vector company and patented back in 2016. The company "created" a whole line of modifications of this helicopter, one of which is called "Cyborg". According to the developers, the helicopter can carry AR-8 unguided missiles, AR-8L guided missiles, the Barrier anti-tank missile system and a PKMT machine gun. Deck version of the VM-4K "Neptune" helicopter, except for the rocket weapons and a machine gun, will be able to carry sonar buoys and depth charges to combat submarines.


In the basic version, the VM-4 has two engines of 145 hp each, a speed of 200 km / h, and the maximum take-off weight of the helicopter is only 1 ton.

According to the general director of the "Vector" company Anatoly Kozubenko, the price of the basic version of the VM-4 helicopter is about 350 thousand dollars, and almost all parts (except for engines and some components) are Ukrainian production.

    "Boy" and "Cyborg", this is something ... More precisely "Cyborg" is everything ...

    And Vector, isn't it the company that patented the battery-powered hybrid helicopter that was recently reviewed at VO?

      Yes, if you take the New Robinson R44 Raven II, then it costs about 600 dollars, but this is not some kind of "Cyborg", it is not clear how and by whom it was made, and it takes on board a pilot and three people. So the difference is penny, and they will take what has worked well. And for the domestic consumption of Ukraine, just right, as saying "On Senka and a hat" (and our dear Sumerian friend, a minusator, this also concerns you).

          No, judging by the statement, a certain analogue of Robinson 44 is proposed - takeoff weight is a ton, engine power is 290, 4 seater
          ... the new light multifunctional helicopter will be created on the basis of the VM-4 "Shmel" four-seat helicopter, developed by the "Vector" company and patented back in 2016.

          It's certainly cheap, although it flies, and "cyborgs" don't fly yet. And a helicopter is already a prestigious transport, it is taken by people with position, with money, and not you and me. For them, a thing is needed, not a show-off. As they say, "A person who buys a yacht does not ask how much gasoline it consumes." And no self-respecting person will buy non-prestigious equipment. Even a Ukrainian of average income will never buy Bogdan-2312, but will buy a 15-year-old Merina.

        Aha, Toko "Sagaidak" does not go anywhere, because of the complete ushatannost. So it can be used as a stationary training platform.

    The main thing is to promise, and then, as Khoja Nasreddin said, either the padishah or the donkey will die, but some people will break off for a sandwich with black caviar and a hatynka and Miami.

    This is a wishlist of a private company, to the state in no way
    "Motor Sich" has its own developments and even a working prototype
    The procurement tender will show everything
    By the way, they didn't believe in Neptune either. laughing

    Well, "Neptune" is still that "Neptune" ...

    The picture is beautiful, how much was paid for it?
    Mi2 having 2 engines of 400 hp. lifted a ton and weighed 2,5 himself. This plastic miracle will fall apart from vibration during takeoff, and if you hang a ton on it, it will crumble under its own weight.
    It remains to find suicides to fly this.
    The similar ROBINSON R44 RAVEN I barely lifts 400 kg. and consumes 20 percent more fuel. But Ukrainians like to build something that no one can do, well, at least on a piece of paper.

        I agree, I slowed down, well then I don't understand how he will lift the load, if you need to lift at least 3 people - 300 kg. plus 150 liters of fuel.

        Officially - the maximum is 380 kg, that is, as I understand it, the real one is a little less.

      Polish GTEs - 350, that's why they were called 350, because that's how many horses were given out. Now there are options for remotorization on the MS-450 and replacement of the gearbox, the airframe is being finalized, with the replacement of duralumin parts with composite ones, but no one wants. "The state has a mute koshtiv"))))

    "Ukraine plans to launch mass production of domestic helicopters" - sounds like the beginning of a joke. laughing
    But once Kharkov was almost the fiefdom of the Soviet aircraft industry.

    I now do not understand people who are witty, although they could at least go to Vicki or to the corner of the sky for their horizons. Now I understand Mr. Lavrov it was he who did not say a catch phrase to journalists, but to such commentators. Whoever will write about the Russian helicopter manufacturer who started production from scratch. Kazan "ANSAT" is better not to give an example.

      Tell me, why should Russia start production from scratch if there is a Ka and Mi?
      Well, we are witty because no one needs this miracle, because it is better to buy a used American helicopter than an ukrosamodelka that will fall apart in the air. The helicopter market has long been divided. To sell equipment, you need to have a service network and everyone understands that Ukraine with its small firm cannot do anything of this. "Ukrainian helicopters" are as funny as "Ukrainian planes".

        You have heard about such a Ukrainian company "Aerokopter" and so their helicopters fly in different parts of the world. But the company was created by people in love with aviation, the same romantics as Ilon Max.

    I think they won't be allowed to produce anything. Who needs competitors? If only the entire production will be owned by someone ... well then it is likely.
