"Only the United States gave way": Russia took second place in the production of combat helicopters

69

The first place in the production of combat helicopters in the world is occupied by the United States, Russia has risen to the second step. This is stated in the British reference Military Helicopters.


The British calculated that the US share of the combat helicopter market reaches 62%, with Russia taking second place with 29%. The main models of combat helicopters supplied to the world market by Russian manufacturers are the Mi-24/35, Ka-52 and Mi-28. It is these three models that allowed Russia to take second place, according to the compilers of the directory.

Also, speaking about Russian combat (attack) helicopters, the British point out that the Mi-24/35 helicopters are currently the second most popular in the world. At the moment, in service with various countries that have Soviet and Russian equipment, there are 521 helicopters of this model. The first among the drums is the American McDonnell Douglas AH-64 Apache.

The Russian attack helicopters Mi-28 and Ka-52 have been called competitors of "modern combat helicopters" produced in the West. It is emphasized that Russian models are most suitable for countries with "limited budgets" that do not have enough funds for "modern western attack helicopters."

The handbook deals specifically with combat helicopters, not multipurpose ones. If we count the multipurpose, then in the first place will be the American land UH-60 / S70 Black Hawk (Black Hawk) and its naval version SH-60 Seahawk "Sea Hawk". There we are talking about almost 4 thousand produced cars. And on the second, the Soviet / Russian Mi-8/17, produced in almost 3 thousand copies.

    Does anyone else make combat helicopters?
    USA, Russia, EU with the whole bunch.
    And it would be good to remember that Sikorsky is a Russian engineer.


    MI8 is probably already on Mars and Venus.

    In most countries, it is in service.

      Considering the fact that the Americans threaten with sanctions those states that buy Russian weapons and permanent American sanctions against Russia and its defense enterprises, this is pretty good. hiEven in conditions of unfair competition from mattresses, Russia continues to produce and sell demanded equipment.

          This is yes.
          China does.
          China does everything.

          And maybe someday they will be able to make a good helicopter.
          Quantity will grow into quality.

          In the meantime, they bought a motoric, but as it turned out, they did not buy it.
          Chinese engines are not doing so well yet.

          But they have a lot of good things.

          In fact, I don't give a damn where we are in the helicopters.
          We have good helicopters.
          And this is the main point.
          It is important to provide for your army and your economy.


          Where are we in the production of ICBMs?
          Some eksperD probably already made a rating?

          Considering that all US ICBMs are quite old, although they have been updated recently - on the first.
          Our zoo of ICBMs is ahead of the rest of the planet - this is not an insult if that ... really many different.

    Russia ranked second in the production of combat helicopters

    Local all-fighters will not like it very much. After all, the State Department and the EU rubbed them in that Putin had leaked, sold and destroyed everything, and Russia is nothing more than a gas station on the "correct" highway of Western democracy, leading to the common good wassat .

      As for helicopters - I certainly want to believe that Russia really takes the second place in helicopters, but the question is, how objective is Shepard Media's opinion? No comparative data, no calculation methodology.

                That's what I'm talking about. Under the USSR, everything was state-owned and there was a planned economy, but now all sorts of limited liability companies are run by private capital and no one decides to them. Therefore, it is not correct to compare production in the USSR and in Russia. Moreover, to ask the question - Why then it was so, and now it is different and why now it is impossible to produce the same amount as in the days of the USSR?

        A modest question: why the hell are your striped ones afraid of a country with such a dead economy and which, with its dead economy, has done such that all their Western economies are shaking with fear. Do not find inconsistencies between boltology and reality. Here is a language to scratch striped much, then who hell can compare with them, especially with arguments such as highlighted. And as soon as they threatened them with a finger, they began to ask for a meeting. Miracles and nothing more, show-off at these striped ones and saw the dough, and this is not the economy. And how do you not understand such a simple thing, while the greens are walking around the planet, they are pretending to be something of themselves, as soon as the dollar collapses, their economy will burst like a balloon.

                  It is with such joy that they became mine.

                  Because the government you are picking up keeps the bulk of the gold and foreign exchange reserves in the currency and securities of the countries of potential adversaries. And their kids study there, not with us.

                    Stop chanting those hackneyed mantras like a member of your country's hate sect.
                    And where did you get the idea that I cheat (I quote from you, letter by letter) all the actions of our government, where and when did I write it? I, on the contrary, strongly and sometimes out loud to their mother, but alas, I do not enter there, and most importantly, I do not have all the information and knowledge. And judging by outward signs, this is the best and fastest way to get into a mess.

          They are not afraid of it ... they want to uncover it. But the price of the issue does not suit them in the form of nuclear weapons .... without it, the issue would have been resolved long ago.

    If the Russian Federation also had 100500 incomplete colonies, which are forced to buy everything of ours, then Russia could well have the first place.

      This has already taken place in the USSR.
      Not so much to buy as to borrow for free with a symbolic "loan", which will sooner or later be forgiven

      Yes, in order to sell more, you need to use more - attack helicopters. - Then they get theirs for free.

    if it weren't for lobbyists from the United States, the black hawk would have swallowed the dust behind the sales of the mi-8 line
    it's a shame, the author, not to mention this. This I mean that the popularity is exaggerated.
    It's just that our helicopter, with comparable capabilities, is much cheaper and periodically takes the lead. For example, in mountainous conditions.

    and in terms of electronic warfare and electronic warfare systems for helicopters, Russia is in first place
    so there are fewer of ours, but they are more tenacious from MANPADS
    what can not be said about the AN-1 Cobra and An-64 Apaches, even against Igla MANPADS, not to mention Verba
    although even the antediluvian air defense system Osa shot down Apaches (not Longbow) from an ambush
    that, again, it is controversial if the Apaches had time to shoot off heat traps

    How is it that recently they called us a gas station, and now we are making popular helicopters, Zircons, vigorous torpedoes, the best airplanes. They don’t want to recognize the opinion and power of Russia.
