Motor Sich plant in Ukraine burning after missile attack caught on video

Consequences of a missile strike


Russian troops continue a special military operation in Ukraine. Today, large industrial enterprises of Zaporozhye, which worked in the interests of the Ukrainian military-industrial sector, have been hit by missile strikes. We are talking about the factories "Progress" and "Motor Sich", where they produced aviation engines and other components, including for drones Turkish development and combat helicopters.
Footage with the results of rocket strikes is published by residents of the city of Zaporozhye.



So, in one of the videos, you can see rising clouds of smoke above the workshop complex of the Motor Sich enterprise.



Recall that earlier Chinese investors were going to buy a controlling stake in this enterprise. The Ukrainian side first agreed and accepted the first tranche of payments. And then suddenly a statement came from Kyiv that the deal should be reviewed. According to experts, this is due to the "advice" from the Americans, who did not want the technology for the production of aircraft engines to come to China. Later, the Ukrainian side even stated that the enterprise should be nationalized "with the subsequent option of a fair privatization."


The head of Zaporozhye said that the industrial enterprise was badly damaged. At the same time, he did not name the specific plants that were hit today.

        Either this has already been done, or another way has been found to replace the products of these enterprises.

          Our OKB Mil and Kamov had all their technologies, new models have long been mastered in Tver, Kazan and St. Petersburg. Under Yanukovych, there was a serious project for our investments in the Motor Sich Plant, but the events on the Maidan crossed them out, then the Chinese appeared, they allocated large investments, but they were also thrown ...

          Since the time of the USSR, there has not been a single significant development! The plant slowly but surely degraded ...

          And yet, quite recently, helicopter engines (for the entire line of medium helicopters), engines for the An-124, for the Be-200, for the Mi-26M were smuggled into the Russian Federation from there. As well as spare engines for the entire line of An aircraft.
          If we had captured this plant in the first push, one could have no doubt about the prospects of our Il-112, Il-114, An-124, Be-200, Mi-38 and Mi-26T ... and all restrictions on the production of all Mi-8\17\24\35\28, Ka-52\32\27M\29 lines, as well as with the production of heavy and medium attack (!) UAVs, light aircraft, L-410, L-610, could finally build Ansats and Ka-226 with their own engines, and possibly the long-suffering Ka-62.
          And I must have missed something.
          Notice how many?
          Of course, they produced much less than under the USSR, but they provided a huge fleet of Soviet aircraft and helicopters all over the world with spare engines.
          Even after 2014, when ties with the Russian Federation were severed, both the Russian Federation, and China, and India preferred to buy engines (primarily for helicopters) precisely in / on - Zaporizhia, and not debugged and not sufficiently reliable (I hope so far) those the same Russian-made engines.
          The Chinese dreamed of such an asset, and perhaps the Turks are counting to this day.
          They did not sit without orders, although they did not choke on them.
          And if you remember the magnificent propeller-fan engine for the An-70 ??
          After all, it was these engines that were supposed to stand on the deck Yak-44 ...

          The acquisition of such an asset would be a "great blessing" (Chinese expression) for the Russian aircraft industry. He would give SUCH a kick for the take-off of this industry of ours, unsuccessful in many respects ... that I even doubt that we would not be able to build then.
          And I really want the industry to take off.
          ... After all, she is like a hedgehog ...

          But apparently the realization has come that this plant will not be left intact to us.

              Precisely so that these plants in Russia do not get the whole bodyaga and started. From the words of Clinton that "Without Ukraine, Russia will never become a great power" and "We will never allow Russia to recreate the USSR under any other form and name."
              Without these factories, the Russian Federation has neither the Navy, nor transport aviation, nor helicopters in the proper quantity and assortment, nor all of the above.

            A good factory, they exploited their products a lot, the fact that Bandera wanted to sell it to the Chinese once again indicates that temporary workers came to power ... sell everything and dissolve with the dough. It’s a pity the plant, if it comes under Russian control, it would be nice to restore it ... Sofa experts have no idea what titanium welding and many other technological processes that are know-how are ... the Chinese grabbed it for a reason ...

          Well, firstly, we did not deceive the Chinese in anything. Ukraine threw them with the plant, and then we took the plant by force. So why should we give what we have won to the Chinese? If he were Chinese (legally, which never happened)) then perhaps it would be necessary to somehow pay off with the PRC

            You are right, because:
            Russia is postponing serial production of a joint aircraft with China due to disagreements. The $20 billion project is being handled by the United Aircraft Corporation and China's COMAC. It was assumed that the wide-body airliner will enter the series by 2025. However, according to Ravil Khakimov, CEO of Irkut Corporation, there are "difficulties" in working with Chinese partners.

      Saved it for the Chinese. At their request. But, after the start of nationalization, when the Chinese lost all hope that they would take what they bought, they decided to bang. Documentation own is much more acceptable always. And we have enough of it, in relation to OUR materials, equipment and everything else. What is needed is not someone else's developments, it is enough that there is in iron, mined in battle or bought before the war. There are no Binomials of Newton there. You need loot. Loot, and more loot. A lot and focused on the production of what we need, for ourselves, and for our own airplanes, drones and other things. Borrowing someone else's is like trying to work with your left hand instead of your usual right. It is much easier to write your own program than to try to split someone else's.

      Until the last, I hoped that Motor Sich would not be touched. Against the backdrop of problems with the Orion engines (they are Austrian), Motor Sich could be an excellent help for a quick launch of a domestic engine into a series. Plus a lever of pressure on the Turkish Sultan.

      Well, they compared God's Gift with .... Ruin. 80% of the industry is destroyed. The transported plants are Yaroslavna's lament. Without walls and roofs. 27 million dead. Three times as many people with disabilities. You don't know. Having worked at the plant for a very long time, in design bureaus I understand perfectly well that poking around in someone else’s head to understand WHY it’s done this way is an order of magnitude more difficult than just imagining HOW the machine you are designing should work. And many other things become clear. The equality of the task, the equality of mathematics, the equality of technical requirements give rise to almost a copy of someone else's. BUT for production, other people's machines are not needed. And their technologists will calculate processing modes no worse than the damned ones. After all, they know the properties of THEIR materials. Not strangers, after all, puzzles.

      Naturally, it is necessary. The victory over the Ukronats is not just a VICTORY, but a VICTORY final, irrevocable, and with a huge gap between their losses and ours. Ahead of us after the destruction of Ukronazism, the destruction of Polish Nazism, and other other Nazisms. And the Dnieper, Yuzhmash, Sich, and a hundred others should be destroyed for educational and demonstration purposes. For educational purposes for followers. To shut up and not squeak. It is not yet clear where we will have the borders of Russia in the West. And the rest of Ukraine must lose not only that, but any hope of restoring its Nazism and power. .
