The USA offered Russia to think about the project of the Elephant aircraft after the An-124 accident

The Russian An-124 transport aircraft made an emergency landing at the Novosibirsk airport on November 14, 2020. This was caused by a problem with the engine. The American edition of The Drive wonders, since Russia has few such aircraft left, is it time to start developing a replacement for them.


According to the publication, the Russian An-124 was flying from Novosibirsk to Vienna. After takeoff, he had engine problems that forced the crew to make an emergency landing. On landing, the left landing gear strut broke down near the plane, which led to damage to the fuselage, wing and engines of the Ruslan. Nobody on board was hurt.

The author notes that it is not known what other damage the plane received and whether it will be repaired, and if so, how long it will take.


The point is, he writes, that there are few An-124 usable in Russia, some of which are part of the military transport aviation VKS, and a part belongs to the Volga-Dnepr company, which carries out commercial transportation. In total, a total of 54 serial An-124s were produced for all the time, some of which were assembled in Kiev, and some in Ulyanovsk.

After the termination of the production of this aircraft, Russia tried to restore the production of the modernized An-124 in Ulyanovsk, but this project had to be postponed due to the severance of relations with Ukraine in 2014, since the rights to the An-124 belong to the Ukrainian Antonov design bureau.

Therefore, Russia should consider the option of creating a new aircraft capable of replacing the An-124, especially since the project of such an aircraft already exists. To replace Ruslan, Russia is proposing to create an Elephant aircraft, similar in appearance to the An-124, but much larger and with better characteristics. After the implementation of this project, Russia will receive its own heavy-duty aircraft and will not depend on other countries for its production and supply of spare parts.

    And that the Americans are so concerned about our problems with heavy transport aircraft. Probably they want to provide components at a discounted price for a new aircraft being developed. But it won't be soon.

      This was caused by a problem with the engine.

      Cause of birds getting into engines.

      In Ulyanovsk, on the stocks, a pair of An-124 remained unfinished, is it really easier to develop a new "Elephant".

      Why do we need these components? In the United States, there is more and more a tendency to a crisis of ideas, and in particular in aircraft construction. While this is not so noticeable, but if you take the latest creations of the military aircraft industry, then even the lizard is not without gross flaws, although it was released a very long time ago.

    I’m not quite a designer, and all the more, I’m not very strong for such complex structures (I remember I miraculously passed the strength of materials, the exam was just the questions on thin shells, etc.), but is it really so difficult to take a ready-made glider from Ruslan, slightly optimize , cram new electrics and electronics, call it "elephant" and resume production?

      ENGINES !!!
      Now most of the Ruslans are parked without engines. There are no relatives from Motor Sich, and the new NK-23 has not yet been revealed even in the prototype. Otherwise, of course it is possible - all the technical documentation is on hand, Aviastar built most of the Ruslans at one time, and even today it serves them and makes repairs.
      But there are NO engines!
      And this accident, which almost became a catastrophe precisely because of them - the photo shows that the fan, the entire cold part and the shell of the second engine were torn off. The fan blades and low-pressure turbines scattering at a frantic speed left monstrous through (for departure) notches in the center section area - at the root of the wing, which de-energized the board, damaged the left landing gear, damaged the wing itself ... and not only.
      It's time to change the engines!
      And when they appear, then by re-christening Ruslan into Elephant, you can safely resume its production in a new look, and remotorize the entire existing An-124 fleet.

        A familiar pilot was there and he said that the engine exploded and its fragments broke the wiring. The plane was planted on the emergency system, purely on the hydraulics, the board was completely de-energized. The chassis must be intact and removed before rolling out of the strip.
        And so only a revision of the airframe and onboard systems will show whether it will take off yet or not. hi

        A decision was made to convene a commission that will develop a plan for creating a bureau that will develop a design bureau project for designing an aircraft, and soon we will fly on our own aircraft.

      The Americans did just that on their B-52. And they still do not redo it.
      Although they definitely have no problems with the choice of engines.
      What's wrong with this option? Well, unless the plane will become a bit heavier, since it rarely flies with full load. Moreover, during remotorization, you can still replace some of the old equipment with a new one, you see, just a centner or two will be saved?

      The unlocalized destruction of engine No. 2 led to the destruction of the aircraft structure by the elements separated from it, which in turn led to: power outage of the aircraft, loss of control of engine No. 1 (the mechanical control wiring was interrupted, in this case the engine operation mode is automatically set to 0,7 nominal, but it is impossible to turn it off from the cab). When the aircraft on-board network is de-energized, the main brakes and engine thrust reverse do not work. Here we must thank God for the fact that everything ended so relatively well.

    For some reason, the Chinese do not have any problems with patents, licenses and other things, when selling goods for export or using them themselves in international projects. Although clones and copies are already indistinguishable from the originals, from elementary penny items to expensive equipment, including military ones. Why do we have such a problem to make these engines, especially since there is a plant. Well, Ukraine will not allow and not ask them. New engines should be installed on airplanes for domestic use, and old, but still working, should be transferred to international flights. This is if the mind is not enough to arrange normally and use. That’s not a question, but a problem, everywhere and in everything. The supply from the USSR is huge, but not infinite. it would be okay to build a new plant, just to do nothing ...

      There is a plant, and not one.
      But they make different engines. To do this, you need to prepare a new production. It's almost like a new plant to build. Launching the production of a new engine, which is obviously better than the old one, will cost exactly the same.
      And the Chinese have no problems, because they make copies similar to the original under a license, and what they do without a license does not seem to be the original.

        I will not argue, but it seems to me that if the Chinese did everything under license, their products would not be so cheap and competitive. In my opinion, they try to copy everything and save on development and testing, hence such success.
        I'll tell you the experience of one friend. She walked around the city in China, she had a good (not super-brand) coat. Several people approached her and offered to buy it on the spot. The price was decent. There was a very simple answer to the question and what is the catch - and we will now carefully disassemble it, make patterns and launch it into production, it is very beautiful with you.
        Therefore, on the one hand, impudent theft and copying, on the other hand, from thought to the final product, the minimum time.
        Another story. A detail was needed, in the Russian Federation no one undertook and did not want to bother. We arrived in China. They took a sample to think about, in the evening they brought and named the price of ready-made details (this story after a couple of people, not directly told).

          Do you really see the difference between a coat and an aircraft engine?
          It is not enough for the engine to simply copy the "pattern", that is, to reproduce the geometry. The main thing is to perceive the characteristics - hardness, strength, heat resistance, accuracy of tolerances, surface cleanliness.
          And this is called technology, high technology. This means the ability to do something that you can't cut with a file on your knee and you can't cut with an ax.
          Why do you think we cannot copy the American / English engines, while the same Chinese cannot make ours at home?

          By the way, I believe in the second story. They have long learned how to make complex details of complex geometry, for example, using a powder method. True, the quality of these parts is often not very good, I myself had experience - the piece of iron broke from a toy load, I looked, it turned out to be somehow molded out of cheap powder and not really sintered.

            I see. And I will add. It is much easier to take a ready-made one, disassemble, study and develop or assemble on its basis than just starting from scratch. This time. The fact that ours cannot copy, we have already passed, they simply do not want or are not profitable when cutting, they are afraid of freezing their accounts and the rest. Plus a long deadly bureaucracy with thousands of certificates and authorities as agreed. And the Chinese cannot - they can. Just a coat, yes, that's one thing, and the engine will take them some time. At first it will turn out so-so, then it will be better, gradually they will come closer to the indicators of the original, reach 100% and not necessarily, but what kind of savings ...
            I like their approach - tell me how much you expect, and we will do it for that amount.

            But after all, Tupolev and others like him didn’t really interfere with copying the American bomber dismantled to a screw? Why, with new technologies, we cannot do what we used to do and released into the sky two years later? Maybe the answer is in another plane? Maybe our designers are initially focused not on the domestic needs of the country, but on stupid profits from the sale on the international market? There is more money ... Isn't that what happens in the military-industrial complex? How many years did they sell the T-90 to Asia and India, until they suddenly decided that it was time for him to travel around his native land? Of course, on international sales, the issue of copyright and certification immediately comes to the fore .. Only where is the guarantee that the West simply will not respond to the creation of new domestic engines and aircraft by introducing new standards for noise, environmental friendliness and some other nonsense, just not to let our planes on international routes? And what, then we can't fly at home either ?! Elephant .. not an Elephant ..

              Do you know about the transition from quantity to quality? If you need to transport a piece of iron of 10 tons, then even if you have ten five-ton units, it will not help you.
              And yes, under Stalin, factories cost, the literacy of the population was increased, science was developed.

                Once in fifty years you need to transport such a piece of iron ...) Well, okay .. Special ships and planes and cars are needed .. Who can argue .. So the nuclear-powered ship "Sevmorput" came in handy - to carry fish .. with thimbles ..- carry more nothing turned out .. And the super heavy aircraft will come in handy. - may be..

                  Yes, like bum, Ruslans do not stand without work. Even Mriya flies regularly. Such pieces of iron have to be transported much more often than once every 5 years.
                  And as for the fact that we are now unable to produce even the An-26 and An-12 class aircraft, you are right. Just in contrast to the Stalinist times. Then our industry grew and developed. And planes were made by the thousands.

          I will not argue, but it seems to me that if the Chinese did everything under license, their products would not be so cheap and competitive. In my opinion, they try to copy everything and save on development and testing, hence such success.

          A simple scheme works there, a company builds a plant, sells products to all markets for 3 years without taxes, then gives it back to the state, having beaten off all costs! wink
          There is another option, with an existing plant, they give a license and produce under designer supervision, while studying)))
          There is no third option, a plant with workers cannot be stolen! (We do not consider Ukraine laughing )

    You can finish them, but without the approval of the Antonov Design Bureau, they will not be able to fly outside of Russia.

    Outdated data. Ukraine tried to "arrest" the maintenance and flights of An-124, but lost. Aviastar and Amtes received a certificate for all types of work, both in Russia and abroad. Volga-Dnepr Airlines flies without problems
    Worldwide. This company has 12 An-124s.
    As part of the Russian Aerospace Forces - 24 units, on the "wing" - 15 units. hi

    but this project had to be postponed due to the severance of relations with Ukraine in 2014, since the rights to the An-124 belong to the Ukrainian design bureau "Antonov".


    there are many reasons
    1) the main engines D-18T not only are produced in Ukraine and did not have time to get rid of childhood "diseases"
    a) At the testing stage, a problem was identified that has not yet been eliminated - the low gas-dynamic stability of the D-18T engines, especially in takeoff modes.
    b) An-124 is capable of taking on board up to 440 paratroopers or 880 soldiers with full equipment. However, the experiments begun in 1989 on dropping parachutists' dummies from an aircraft forced to introduce restrictions on the parachute landing of people, due to aerodynamic factors.
    d) the high cost of transportation, compared to Western transport aircraft of similar payload.

    But the main reason is rather that all equipment used in this aircraft (from engines to electronics) is outdated at the moment + customers are no longer satisfied with the aircraft's carrying capacity and its internal cargo volume.

    In general, the AN-124 Ukrainian can only be called conditionally

    Since the flight and navigation sighting system, chassis and hydraulics, engine starting blocks, drive-generators, auxiliary engines (TA-12), communication and radar equipment on the aircraft manufactured in Russia and Ukraine only produces the main engine D-18T and "naked" a glider without equipment and landing gear, and even then not completely (the wing elements are foreign there).
    Who do you think has a better chance of starting production of AN-124 aircraft, Ukraine or Russia?
    By the way, for information about the giant AN-225, which the Svidomo are so proud of, it consists of 80% of Russian-made parts (there is only Ukrainian D-18T engine and a "naked" glider without equipment and chassis)

    By the way, KB "Antonov" has already spoken out about the deployment of AN-124 production in Russia

    "In August 2019, the Antonov State Enterprise announced that in the event of the organization of serial production of the An-124-100M aircraft in Russia (according to some sources, the preparation of such production is carried out by the Ilyushin Design Bureau), the aircraft must be assigned a different designation (the aircraft needs a new designation without links to "An") "

    that in fact there are no complaints about such production if the aircraft has a different name

    The fate of the AN-124 in Russia has already been decided. Apart from the modernization and extension of the service life of existing aircraft, there will be no production of new AN-124 aircraft.
    "At the same time, the An-124-100M will receive new avionics, including an aiming and navigation aerobatic system, an on-board communications complex, an on-board information system. Airborne transport equipment, a power supply system, lighting, oxygen, household equipment and workplaces for crew members. Additionally, the aircraft will be equipped with an on-board defense system designed "for individual protection of the aircraft from being hit by portable anti-aircraft missile systems (MANPADS) with optical-electronic and radar missile homing heads."

    Actually, the idea is correct. Rather than waiting for common sense to appear in Ukraine, it is better to develop your own aircraft, which is necessary for both the army and the national economy. It doesn't matter what it will be called - an Elephant or a Giraffe, the main thing is to have it.

    In an amicable way, you need serial production of Il476 .... for serial production of avionics, various systems ... and some kind of turbojet engine (based on NK32 or PD35). The Elephant's problem is that it will not be massive, which means that it must use ready-made solutions.

    When I watch reports about another transport worker from Antonov, Mriya is a "bastard". The Ukrainians fought so vehemently against the entire legacy of the "scoop."
    And then, they fly around the world and seeing how people come running to look at the giant plane, they are proud of the fact that it is ... Ukrainian.

    In one report, the pilot even gave out a joke - people are in shock. They come up and are surprised - we didn't know what they could do in Ukraine!

    And I sit and think - but in general, no one knew)))


    And with the "Ruslans", of course, the ambush turned out (
    Not to say that many such aircraft are needed, but a small fleet of more IL-76 aircraft is needed.
