"They required too much investment": the Peruvian army sold out Mi-26 helicopters

102

The Peruvian Armed Forces sold off the entire fleet of Mi-26T helicopters, actually handing them over to the buyer by weight, and not as complex technical products.


The Cyprus company AGSL Aero Systems acquired at an open auction three heavy transport rotorcraft Mi-26T, which the Peruvian army aviation decommissioned in August this year. The purchase price was slightly over $ 300 for the entire lot. The new owner intends to dismantle all equipment that can still be used, and sell the rest as scrap metal. Among other things, machine engines are subject to assessment.

The equipment was manufactured in 1992 and previously flew in the interests of the Russian Aeroflot. Peru acquired the Mi-26T through Mobetek for approximately $ 9,7 million. Since 1995, helicopters have been part of the 811th Air Assault and Transport Battalion of the Peruvian Army. They had registration numbers EP-705, EP-706, EP-707 and were not used for 12, 17 and 21 years, respectively. The tender for their sale was opened on August 12, 2020.

Their units are certified and can be used as spare parts for overhaul of this type of helicopter.
- explained in the Armed Forces of Peru, noting that the reason for the sale of cars is the too high price of their maintenance:

The repair of three helicopters will require large investments, given their technical condition and inactivity.

As indicated, among the units, D-136 engines, TA-8V starting auxiliary engines and gearboxes did not need repair. The two helicopters have hydraulic, electrical and navigation components that are unusable due to wear and tear due to outdoor storage (in Lima Callao, near the sea).

The Mi-26T EP-707 sample had the least flight time (only 142 hours), but in October 2003 it made an emergency landing and has been in storage ever since.

        Yes, in general, shameful !!! These are transport workers, there is so much you can load and deliver to hard-to-reach areas .. But Peru is a mountainous country and the infrastructure there is underdeveloped ..!
        It seems to me that these turntables were bought by private individuals in Colombia wink They are just right, especially since the engines are whole and almost new.

        Traveled, traveled, and decided to change some devil Belt variator (after all, the old one, used ...).

        I bought a new Chinese one in a motorcycle store, in a beautiful package (!!!) Changed ...
        After 5 km, the scooter got up and refused to go. Pushed home and ... changed the Chinese new belt stretched into the trash for a used Japanese, "native" , which fortunately did not throw away.

        Then God knows how much he rode on a scooter until he sold it to the next owner.

                You are not entirely correct. The fact is that the overwhelming majority of people have a clearly formed concept in their brains - Chinese, which means cheap and bad. And there are very few real high-quality goods from the PRC on sale now.

                  Yes, I am silent about a really high-quality product, in general, it is difficult but you can find it. But that shaft g that they are driving us, the hucksters have not yet understood that by selling 10 pieces of 2500 frank junk, they lose 30 possible buyers, as if they were selling for 3500, but a more bearable, though not super-quality product. It just infuriates already.

                    It's just that smart traders do it differently - they bring 10 units on the cheap, but junk and 1-2 units of quality goods. But such businessmen are few.
                    On the other hand, if the seller brings only expensive, but high-quality goods, then it will very quickly go down the drain, since now the incomes of the population have sagged. As long as a knowledgeable buyer will come, and eat and drink, pay wages and taxes right now.
                    You see, the fact is that I have been trading in the market for 20 years and I understood very quickly this truth that you cannot build a business on one expensive product. Walk through the nearest shopping center, you will see how many departments selling branded goods have closed, but all sorts of stores living off low prices survived.

          Long before the Anglo-Saxons, the Spanish conquistadors brought horses to the American continent.
          Before that, in the "New World" local Indians had no idea about such animals. And the Spaniards on horseback led the Indians into a superstitious wild horror, sowing panic ...
          Later, some of the horses ran wild and strayed into herds, receiving the nickname "mustang", which means (mestengo / mesteño "mixed") - a feral domestic horse.
          Mustang was common on the prairies of North America and the pampas of South America.

            Mustangs still exist in nature, although there are few of them, like bison. Perhaps they will be supplemented in the future with a population of Przewalski's horses, more resistant to wild nature - 1,5 months ago, this species was successfully cloned for the first time.

    The operation of such a serious technique a priori cannot be cheap. All expenses should be counted before purchase, not after.
    If you want something cheaper - buy the MI-17 variants.
    I have one friend, at one time he bought the Land Cruiser Prado in the 120 body. I ask why you don’t ride? The answer surprised me.

                      UAZ is for work or for pokatushek - competitions in shit. And we are talking about a car for a family. In general, I came to the conclusion for a long time and therefore I use several cars in my family. Now x5, my wife has a stepway, Izh 2717 with a trailer for the farm, a cornfield for hunting.

          pradik in operation is several times cheaper) literally)

          I have been serviced by authorized Toyota Motors dealers for ten years now, and I can say that the rates for the Highlander and Lexus RX are practically the same, and the total cost of servicing new cars is practically the same. I do not think that SUVs have such a sharp price range - most likely, all operating costs do not differ much, although I honestly did not drive SUVs. But I constantly visit the Toyota center for maintenance, and when buying a new RX, I compared it with the Prado and came to the conclusion that the prices did not differ much either. Where, then, can there be a multiple spread of operating costs and service prices for almost identical Toyota Prado and Lexus GX SUVs?

      If you want something cheaper - buy the MI-17 variants.

      I think that they did not buy these helicopters out of need, but simply Russia paid with barter for the fact that our fishing trawlers fished there and served in their ports, because whoever remembers that time knows what happened then. In the same way, our armored vehicles ended up in South Korea, so you shouldn't blame everything on the unpreparedness of the Peruvians, because they most likely received these helicopters as a suitcase without a handle.
      In general, not everything is clear with the history of the appearance of these helicopters in Peru, and therefore mockery of their fate is not entirely appropriate if we do not know the intricacies of this transaction in terms of warranty service and training. But the very fact that they used them already suggests that not all the cross-handed people serve in the Peruvian Air Force.

        In no way spoke about the club-handedness of the Peruvian Air Force, much less scoffed.
        The message was that the calculations for the operation of serious equipment should be done BEFORE purchasing. The helicopter itself is very good, but it has its own niche
        Even if purchased on a barter basis, no one canceled maintenance and repairs.
        Sincerely.

      I observed this picture in the Far East. Money appeared and they take a pontoy jeep, and then problems begin. A supported jeep in Hokkaido can be bought for little money, then they start to think about it ... You can somehow get out with rubber, but if the automatic gearbox comes up, then count everything ...

    The point is apparently that the helicopters were no longer new and without factory support. The operation of the Mi-26 is much more complicated and expensive than that of the Mi-8 and Mi-24. The existing Mi-26s do not fly in India either. This despite the fact that Peru has experience of successful operation of MiG-29 and Mirage-2000 fighters.

    In the 90s, Russian companies employed the same vorie-Papuans as in Ukrainian ones until now: they sold everything they could for a good kickback.
    For comparison: the much poorer CH-47 Chinook in the 2000s was estimated at 30 million. For 1 piece

    And then we are surprised that the polymers have been fucked up ...
