Reliability and high potential: Russian helicopter engines and their capabilities

27

How many countries in the world have the technology to create their own aviation (aircraft and helicopter) engines?


It would seem that in the age of progress there should be dozens of such countries. But ... The creation of aircraft engines is a special niche of the industry, and therefore the technologies are special here. They are owned by only six countries on the planet. And one of them is Russia.

For many years, the Russian industry has been developing and realizing the potential for creating a wide variety of aircraft engines, including power plants for attack and transport helicopters. The domestic Mi-8 since Soviet times has established itself as a truly reliable rotary-wing aircraft. And one of the pillars of this reliability is the helicopter engine used.

Thanks to Russian aircraft equipment, including aircraft engines, as well as thanks to the work of engineers and the service of pilots, Russian equipment continues to hold leading positions in the world.

The program "Russian Engines" at the TK "Zvezda" presents a story about helicopter engines of domestic production.

Special attention is paid to the case of the rescue of some passengers of the Estonia ferry, when the Russian Mi-8 literally landed on the water so that people could be pulled out of the water from its side. Then the test pilot Vadim Bazykin was driving the car, knowing perfectly well the capabilities of its power plant.

    Let's be honest, the Mi-8 is a Soviet helicopter.
    And his engine is Soviet TV3-117.
    We are far from the level of development of our ancestors: (((they had it on the stream, what we still use, slightly modifying.

          New methods were added to the classical methods - in vitro fertilization, surrogate motherhood - something that was previously inaccessible to ancestors.

            surrogate motherhood - something that was not available to ancestors before

            Carrying a third female of the fetus is an old decision. The fundamental difference is only in the method of fertilization (traditional and modern)

                tell us how to do it traditionally?

                The first surrogate mother we know appeared two thousand years before the birth of Christ (according to the OT / Bible), the servant's name was Hagar, she carried the child of Abram.
                In some countries (for example, in Ancient Greece or Ancient Rome), if the wife could not get pregnant, it was considered possible to find an heir by turning to a more fertile woman who, after birth, gave the child to an infertile couple.
                Plutarch described a situation reminiscent of modern surrogacy
                In ancient Rome, men sold their wives for rent (ventrem locare) to married couples, where the wife was infertile, and the child, born with the help of a "hired" mother, was subsequently the legal child of an infertile couple.
                Among the ancient Jews, husbands of childless wives used slaves who were forcibly impregnated, forcing them to bear and give birth to a child (see, for example, the story of Ishmael's birth in the Book of Genesis). The first in his arms was to be taken by his spouse, thereby demonstrating the “indisputable right” of the family and wife to the baby.
                Oddly enough, the technique of the so-called traditional surrogate motherhood, when a woman bears a genetically native child, existed until the second half of the last century. The world's first surrogacy agency, opened by an American lawyer N. Keane in 1976, practiced in vivo fertilization for a long time, which did not meet any obstacles from the authorities.
                ... Modern surrogate motherhood is based on completely different principles: under no circumstances can a surrogate mother be an egg donor at the same time, so the child she bears has no genetic relationship with her.

                  You misunderstand the meaning of the word surrogate mother.
                  This is a woman who carried and gave birth to a child whose biological parents are other man and woman.
                  What you described as "classically" is not a surrogate mother, which you yourself wrote about at the end of the post, which I had the patience to read. smile hi

                      ... In Russia, it is legally forbidden for an oocyte donor to be a surrogate mother within the framework of one treatment program (in other words, a genetic mother cannot be a surrogate mother at the same time).

      Well, we don't need to throw dust in our eyes here! There have been many developments at all times and the Soviet one is no exception. This cow (USSR) had to be fed and nurtured by the West, for such a brake on the welfare of citizens was still to be looked for. In the current post-Soviet conditions, the country develops much more efficiently and uses its potential to the fullest! And the Soviet was only stolen and then improved by others. And we have only roots.

      It just so happened that a significant part of the engine building was in 92 on the territory of another hostile state. Ivchenko-progress, Zarya-mashproekt and motor sich were the basis of Soviet engine building. They have the rights and production of probably most of the running Soviet models of engines. Tch now we have to build what the Soviet Union built for decades, at home again. These are works for the same years and decades. There are very few countries in the world that have their own technologies and production of such engines. This business, to put it mildly, is not simple, not fast and not cheap. request

      No-talk rhetoric. What does it matter?
      One and the same land, one and the same people, one and the same language.
      Why dig in the past? History has long gone forward, it will not turn back.
      We need to think about tomorrow, and not pray about yesterday.
