"Helicopters of Russia" will show the new items at the Aero India 2013 exhibition in Bangalore


Russian Helicopters Holding, a subsidiary of the defense industrial complex Oboronprom, which is part of Rostec Corporation, will take part in the Aero India 2013 exhibition, which will be held from 6 to 10 in February in Bangalore.

As the press service of OJSC Helicopters of Russia reported, the holding will show visitors of the exhibition new multi-purpose helicopters of the light and middle classes, primarily Ka-226T and Mi-171А2, which in the coming years can become the main Russian products in the actively growing helicopter market of India.

The lightweight Ka-226T with a unique coaxial rotor scheme participates in a tender for the supply of Indian air forces to a large batch of observation and reconnaissance helicopters and has high chances of winning. In December 2012, Russian Helicopters and Elcom Systems signed an agreement in New Delhi to establish a joint venture for the assembly of Russian helicopters in India, including the Ka-226T.

Another interesting novelty of the exhibition in Bangalore will be the modernized mid-range helicopter Mi-171А2, which incorporates the best characteristics of the Mi-8 / 17 and complements them with the latest technologies. Today, the Russian fleet of Mi-8 / 17 Russian-made helicopters exceeds 200 units, and the need for helicopters of this type is preserved.

“Helicopters of Russia” deliver under the contract of Rosoboronexport OJSC to the Indian Air Force Mi-17В-5 helicopters; the next installment was delivered in December 2012 of the year, it is planned to complete the execution of the contract in 2013 year.

Together with Rosoboronexport OJSC, Russian Helicopters will demonstrate the Mi-2013NE Night Hunter attack helicopter at Aero India 28. This combat helicopter with unique characteristics is designed to search and destroy day and night in simple and difficult weather conditions tanks, armored and unarmored vehicles, as well as manpower on the battlefield and low-speed air targets.

At the Russian Helicopters stand, visitors will also see promising Russian helicopter projects, including the lightweight multi-purpose Ansat, which is currently being tested with a new hydromechanical control system, an average Ka-62, presented to the international commercial market at last year's Farnborough air show, and other helicopters.

The Helicopters of Russia holding in Bangalore represents the country's consolidated helicopter industry since 2009.

          strannik595 right, this is Ansat-2RC at the MAKS-2007 air show

          At the MAKS-2005 air show, the Ansat-2RC light combat helicopter, created at the KVZ, was presented.
          It was originally planned that the helicopter will perform the functions of reconnaissance and target designation, however, it is possible to implement a light assault helicopter as an option.
          The assault version of the machine will receive a large-caliber machine gun and guided missile weapons as weapons.
          According to the general director of KVZ, the operation of the Ansat-2RC will cost 2 times less than the Mi-24.
          In the design of Ansata-2RC, 90% of the Ansata nodes were used. In fact, only the fuselage was re-designed and built; Canadian PW-207K engines were used as a power plant for the helicopter. This approach allowed the helicopter to fly into the air less than a year after the start of its construction.

            For information, add:
            "Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant has started assembling the first Mi-171A2 helicopter prototype, ITAR-TASS reports. Earlier, the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant handed over to the cost center the fuselage of a new helicopter, start of mass production which is planned for the first half of 2014.
            It is expected that deliveries of the first Mi-171A2 will begin at the end of 2014. Until this time, the machine will undergo a series of flight tests, as well as certification according to Russian and foreign flight standards.

            Mi-171A2 is created on the basis of Mi-171A1, which, according to the Russian Helicopters holding, is recognized as the best in terms of flight safety among helicopters of the Mi-8 / Mi-17 family.
            The new helicopter will have a reduced maintenance cost and one flight hour.
            According to the project, the Mi-171A2 with the main fuel tanks will be able to fly up to 850 kilometers.
            On the external sling, the helicopter will be able to carry cargo weighing up to five tons. Etc."

            According to the general director of KVZ, the operation of the Ansat-2RC will cost 2 times less than the Mi-24.

            Losses will only be 3 times higher.

            Incorrect comparison - Crocodile is certainly a more serious car, and Ansat is generally in a different "weight" category request

    Dear forum users, I would be very grateful if someone could tell me what / where uniqueness is manifested in what its flight or combat characteristics.
    Mi-28NE “Night hunter”. This battle unique helicopter

    I just really do not like being "caught" in a conversation .. "tell a friend" that - Mi-28NE "Night Hunter". this is a helicopter with unique characteristics, but to me: well, tell me what is its uniqueness ...
    Well, something like this..
    otherwise I found only this
    Helicopter passive protection system allows the crew to survive when the helicopter hits the ground at a vertical speed of 12 meters per second.

      YO-MY !! It is necessary! 43 km \ h !!! the basins on the concrete wall no longer break if they travel at that speed. and then a helicopter! at least you can’t bring down a fly swatter?

      Olegugan, now helicopter pilots and aircraft manufacturers would become more active in civilian products based on their developments and promote them to the same markets where their military counterparts are deservedly popular. Including this Indian market. Following the sale of these products, setting up a mass production of spare parts for them and establishing service maintenance is sometimes even a lot of money than from the sale of mother products. Then the offensive nickname "raw material appendage" will become a lie, especially since it is not true even now - Russia has competitive high-tech products, only produced in scanty batches, which is not enough on the domestic market and it is still not possible to sell properly and in a proper way. we know how

    Fly Ka-226, the Russian Federation itself takes European.

    Marconi41 5 February 2013 06: 01
    They say our pilots don't like the Ka-226. We got used to flying on heavier machines, but these are light ones. Example: the border guards built ships of the "Rubin" type, it was planned to base the Ka-226 on them. But ships of this class are stamping everything, and there are NO helicopters on them! Now there is talk about basing unmanned aircraft on these ships.

    So it was to this day, and for that there were reasons, stupid, ridiculous, yes no matter.
    The main thing is that everything would be adjusted now, the main thing is to understand the problem, and it pleases. Everything will work out. I'm sure. You know how in Vysotsky's song "There are few real violent, so there are no LEADERS". Nonche Shoigu and Rogozin rule.
