The military transport Mi-38T will receive new modifications

On the basis of the new military transport helicopter Mi-38T, new modifications are being developed, including an air command post and a helicopter with weapons. The director of the Mi-38 helicopter program Roman Kargin told about it.


According to Kargin, various options for using the new Mi-38 helicopter are currently being worked out, which is still positioned in the army as a military transport for the transport of personnel and cargo. The option of creating an air command post, as well as the Mi-38T version, for which preliminary applications have already been received, is being considered.

The fact that the Ministry of Defense ordered the development of an air control center based on the Mi-38T became known in March 2020. The creation of the new machine should be completed by the spring of next year, then sources in the military department said. The new air command post (VKP) based on the Mi-38 helicopter will be able to receive and process information on the course of hostilities in real time, coordinate the actions of different types of troops on the scale of a district or an interspecific grouping. The helicopter will be equipped with a modern control system, which one is not named.

Currently, the first two military Mi-38Ts are undergoing experimental military operation since 2019. A contract for two more helicopters was signed within the framework of the Army-2020 forum.

The Mi-38 medium multipurpose helicopter occupies a niche between the Mi-8 and the heavy Mi-26. The Mi-38T (Airborne) is the military version of the Mi-38. It is designed for round-the-clock airlift of personnel of up to 40 people with disembarkation to unprepared sites, evacuation of the wounded (up to 12 people in a recumbent position and up to 30 in a seated position, accompanied by two paramedics), transportation of goods weighing up to five tons in a cargo compartment or on an external sling.

The Mi-38T helicopter is equipped with new highly efficient TV7-117В domestic engines and an integrated digital flight-navigation system.

The flight range of the Mi-38T in the transport configuration is up to 1000 kilometers (with additional fuel tanks). The maximum take-off weight is 15,6 tons. The maximum speed is 300 km / h. Flights can be operated at altitudes of up to 6300 meters.

    And what about the intermediate helicopters - less Mi-8 but more Ansat. Weighing 5-7 tons. Like the Ka-62!

      While the turboshaft engines are not localized in any way ...... they write, there are already 11 Ansats of the Moscow Region without maintenance work .... due to sanctions.
      The first in line is VK650 ...

        and the VK650 queue ...


        So far, nothing I mean. And the VK-650 should also go to the Ka-226. Because of what the FSB does not purchase these turntables for the Hunters.

    Good idea. Mobile headquarters turns out

    What does "idea" mean? This has long been an implementation:
    The first aircraft for this purpose were air command posts based on the Mi-4, but the more capacious Mi-8 was much better suited for use as an air command post, allowing to place the necessary equipment and operators. The VKP also appeared on the basis of the Mi-6, heavier and providing combat control at the level of a combined arms or air army. The need for machines of this class was quite urgent, and, without waiting for the development of specialized machines, the first VKP based on the Mi-8 were equipped in the early 70s by the forces of the military themselves at the enterprises of the Ministry of Defense. In the army, they were called Mi-8VKP or Mi-8VzPU (air control center), sometimes they were called Mi-8BUS (combat control and communications). When equipping them, the equipment tested on the Mi-6VKP found application.

    A large tablet was installed in the cargo compartment to monitor the operational situation, three closed and rather cramped compartments with operator's workplaces were equipped on the right side of the side, another operator was located behind a partition in the rear of the cabin. The set of equipment included a R-111 KB-band radio station for communication with ground forces, relaying KB-band radio relay stations R-130 or R-140 and VHF stations R-409, radiotelephony was provided by R-802 DM / M-band stations and decimeter R-831 and R-847. To seal the channels, equipment was used that made it possible to organize several communication lines on one wavelength. The equipment was of various types, partly made on lamps and frankly outdated, weighing a lot and requiring the presence of operators without any automation and other innovations. Part of it was placed on an external sling in containers under the farms. For example, the R-802 radio station with two dozen fixed channels had a venerable age, was a structure the size of a bulky suitcase, and by this time was already serving on Aeroflot aircraft. In addition, the set of communications equipment was not entirely consistent with the purpose of the divisional level VKP.

    In 1977, the Mil Design Bureau prepared the "author's version" of the Mi-8IV air command post with the Ivolga equipment, which later received its own name Mi-9. It was intended for the command echelon of motorized rifle, tank or air divisions.

    The equipment included a KB-radio station R-856MB, a VHF radio station R-802VYa and R-832M "Eucalyptus" for communication with ground troops, a radio relay station R-405M, two short-wave radio receivers R-886B, as well as a pair of specialized radio stations R- 111 communications with ground forces of the VHF and HF bands. The helicopter was equipped with an AI-8 auxiliary power unit, which ensured the operation of the equipment on the ground. AI-8 was carried out as a separate unit and rolled aboard on its own cart.

    In 1987, a new VKP appeared, developed on the basis of the Mi-8MT and named Mi-19. It was intended for divisional level leadership

    A separate modification of the Mi-19R with its own complex of equipment was intended for commanders of missile divisions

      Yes, very well suited for a war with ... partisans, but no more ..
      These gatherings of a bunch of generals stupidly looking at the monitor with a complete lack of thought in their eyes! And when will we begin to master modern warfare based on information technology with decision-making and destruction of the enemy in real time? For 20 years we have been marking time and looking out from behind a nuclear club, and even these mediocrities have not worked out a concept ?! The genius with his general staff came up with some kind of RUK and ROC and created the UAV regiments ... That again we will stack the soldiers in piles, as in 41, but this will not help anymore ... useless ACCU ..., and still unburned columns of tanks that never saw the enemy ...
