Serial production of the Mi-26T2V heavy military transport helicopter will begin next year, the first deliveries of the upgraded helicopter to the troops have already been made. Andrey Boginsky, General Director of the Russian Helicopters holding, spoke about this.


According to him, by the end of this year, the holding plans to complete flight tests of the Mi-26T2V helicopter and obtain permission for serial production of the helicopter. At the same time, the first deliveries of helicopters to the troops have already been carried out. TASS... This all concerns the basic version, there is no information about the Arctic one yet.

The first flight of the upgraded Mi-26T2V helicopter took place in August 2018, and preliminary tests, which confirmed the characteristics of the vehicle, were completed in January 2019. At the same time, plans were announced to create an Arctic version of the Mi-26, it was planned to start work on it after the completion of work on the Mi-26T2V.

The new Mi-26Т2В helicopter differs from the basic Mi-26 model by the presence of an integrated on-board radio-electronic equipment complex, which is able to automatically perform en-route flight, exit to a predetermined point, landing approach, as well as preparatory maneuvering and return to the main or alternate aerodromes. In addition, the helicopter is equipped with a digital aerobatic complex, an onboard defense complex "Vitebsk".

With a maximum take-off weight of up to 56 tons, the helicopter can lift 20 tons of cargo into the air, both inside the cabin and on the external sling. The Ministry of Defense intends to purchase at least 10 Mi-26T2V.

      More correctly - where do they get it from?

      Most likely PD12V was finally finished, based on PD 14.

        If they had installed their engines, then the fanfare would rattle with might and main, otherwise it would be silent.

            Alas, but there is nowhere else, to develop a new engine and adapt it, this is the floor of the helicopter to change

            Most likely they bought it a long time ago, while the window of opportunity was
            Or maybe (although unlikely) we are doing something on the sly - recently it was reported that the overhaul of the D-36 was mastered, and the D-436 was carried out at one time, as you know, maybe the D-136 is quietly doing without advertising (the structures are related and the gearbox our-Russian)

              Knowing our favorite, moving to the right, anything can happen. PD12V has the end of ROC in 2025, although since 2020, PD12V has begun to be turned on the stand.

                I think that still the new Mi-12T26V will fly on the PD-2V. The Americans are unlikely to give the go-ahead for the supply of engines for the RF Ministry of Defense helicopters.
                In May of this year, the head of the Russian Helicopters holding, Andrei Boginsky, said that flight tests of the remotorized Mi-26 would take place after 2022. As a new engine on a heavy helicopter, it is planned to use the PD-12V, created on the basis of the PD-14 gas generator (this motor designed for the Russian promising narrow-body aircraft MS-21). It will replace the Ukrainian D-136 engines manufactured by Motor Sich, which are now being used in the Mi-26.


                The development of PD-12V is at the stage of experimental design work (ROC). In 2017, the stage of preliminary design of this engine was completed, the Perm division of the UEC-Aviadvigatel corporation reported in its information and technical bulletin. To date, the design of the power plant and the main parameters have been determined, and integration with the helicopter has been carried out. The production and testing of the first prototype PD-12V is scheduled for 2020, and the overall completion of the R&D project is scheduled for 2025.

                Compared to the Ukrainian D-136, the Russian engine will provide an expansion of the conditions for the basing of the helicopter due to the great ability to maintain power in high altitude and hot climates and the possibility of forcing power up to 14000 hp. from. It is expected that the re-motorization of the Mi-26 will increase the payload range and reduce operating costs through improved performance and lower maintenance costs. Despite the greater weight of the PD-12V compared to the D-136, the new engine will be more economical than its Ukrainian counterpart.

        This will not happen in the near future.
        The developer has a general task - PD-35.
        And God forbid to master this task.

          PD-35 does not overlap in stands and equipment with PD-12.
          But the PD-8 is now in a hurry to issue for the Superjet and the BU-200. It also interferes with PD-12.

            I wonder how PD-8 interferes with PD-12V?

            Your words to God in the ears.
            You do not quite represent the true state of affairs.
            Everything is not simple, but very difficult. However, it is unnecessary to write details here.

    Meanwhile, both the military and the manufacturers of T-14 tanks, declare that state tests of equipment are being completed, tanks will appear in the army in 2022, though without specifying specific dates.

    Serial production of the heavy military transport helicopter Mi-26T2V will begin next year, the first deliveries of the upgraded helicopter to the troops have already been made.

    Let now the Ukrainian soldiers at least tear their seats on the British flag - this year there will be no war ... wassat

    Andrey Boginsky, General Director of the Russian Helicopters holding, spoke about this.

    That week, he reported to Putin on TV that today the holding's productivity has reached - one helicopter a day. And the number of employees is 35 thousand people. good

    An example of when export makes innovation.

    The military bought old Mi-26Ts and they were fine. There, except for the little things, they have updated, according to the principle of old CRT TVs, we no longer do it, so we will put an LCD display. Well, and so on board, which is no longer done, by analogs.


    However, it became impossible to promote such a machine for export. 5 crew members, this is immediately a coffin for sale. Therefore, they began to make T2 - 2 crew members fully control the helicopter + 1 seat of the cargo compartment operator. New avionics. 100500 improvements aimed at facilitating maintenance procedures. And orders went straight away - Algeria, Jordan. Here the Ministry of Defense also hurried in advance and came to the ready board.

    "...The new Mi-26T2V helicopter differs from the base model Mi-26 by the presence of an integrated complex of avionics .......... "

    All this is certainly good and even wonderful .... Question: What about the engines? What do you hear about PD-12V?

    You have already blown yours and therefore you can continue to wet it lol
    We have replaced all the Soviet engines of the Zaporozhye Production Association Motorostroitel named after the Great October Socialist Revolution. wink

      And for what? Well, as far as TV3-117 is concerned, everything is clear: they are being replaced by VK-2500, although the production rates are still not quite keeping up with the needs ... But with the D-136 there is currently nothing to replace with ... PD- 12V has not reached the test yet ...

    You can certainly disagree, but the situation in the domestic helicopter industry is a very clear example of parasitism on the Soviet reserve. For more than 20 years, there has been no real progress in the design and production of new models ...

      "For more than 20 years, there has been no real progress in the design and production of new models ...". And what, right here were the conditions for design and production? It's good if by the 10th year we have finished rebuilding the design bureaus and the industry.

    Yah! And during this period, budget revenues did not increase significantly? And yes, who destroyed and who then interfered with "rebuilding the design bureau and industry"? What is happening now in the helicopter industry, what are the successes?
    A separate question for the minus clowns: what can you specifically object to my message?
