D.Kuchera: Will Kazakhstan become a "world leader" in the production of military helicopters?

49



Kazakhstan plans to expand the production of military helicopters and declares ambitions to become "one of the world's flagships in the production of light attack helicopters," announced the defense enterprise of NK Kazakhstan Engineering JSC. The Republic signed a memorandum of cooperation with the European defense giant Eurocopter (a division of EADS) on the assembly and maintenance of EC 645 T2 helicopters - a combat version of EC 145 helicopters already produced in Kazakhstan. Here is the relevant excerpt from the press release:

"According to the document [signed by Bolat Smagulov, Chairman of the Board of NC Kazakhstan Engineering JSC, and Olivier Lambert, Senior Vice President of Eurocopter], Eurocopter Kazakhstan Engineering LLP, the only manufacturer of EU 145 helicopters in the CIS, will assemble and maintenance of military helicopters EU 645 T2.

The agreements reached ... will allow the joint venture to reach a new stage in its development, to set up an assembly (with mastering the production of some components) of more high-tech products. The EC helicopter 645 T2 is one of the latest developments available on the world market for similar technology. At the moment, its mass production is not started by any country in the world. In case of successful implementation of the signed document, Kazakhstan will become one of the world's flagships in the production of light attack helicopters. "


Вертолеты ЕС 645 Т2 пока не стоят на вооружении ни в одной стране мира, но ВВС США рассматривают их в качестве одного из вариантов для оснащения подразделений вооруженной воздушной разведки. В арсенал "вертушки" входят системы лазерного наведения и целый набор ракет и aviation guns.

Apparently, Kazakhstan itself will be the first buyer of helicopters produced in the republic, although the above-mentioned press release says nothing about it. There are no similar systems in Kazakhstan yet; only larger military helicopters Mi-24 are in service. And, if memory serves, this is the third time in a row lately, when Kazakhstan announces an agreement in the field of military-air technology, not with Russia, but with a western partner. The leadership of the republic is too cautious to state this openly, but three times in a row this is already a trend, and it is not difficult to assume that Rosoboronexport and the Kremlin are watching all this with disapproval.

    We must come up with such nonsense: the leader of the world helicopter industry. For this, at a minimum, it is necessary: ​​a scientific base with extensive experience in this field, a production base with a large number of professionally trained specialists, and then who in the world is waiting for a new competitor, Kazakhstan, in the helicopter market. Or maybe it is supposed to sell Kazakhstan helicopters at low prices? So anyway lower than that of the Chinese will not work. So it’s not bad to dream, it’s bad not to dream.

      Do not rush to blame Kazakhstan for overly inflated ambitions. It says:

          Vladsolo56, please tell me where to start? If you look at the experience of Japan, China, Korea - did they also have a strong scientific school? By the way, my supervisor wrote reviews on the work of Chinese mathematicians. Then they had to withdraw their scientific works from all the scientific libraries of the world. My father-in-law is Dr. F.M. sciences, physicist, now it’s the turn of him from the world's leading publications to publish his works (I already wrote about this - see archive). And further . After the collapse of the USSR, he occupied the leading country in the field of mathematics in Asia ... AZERBAIJAN !!! There were 3 mathematicians with world names and each with a large (own) scientific school. The second is Kazakhstan. Neither Japan, nor China, nor Korea, nor Taiwan !!!
          And further . After his resignation, Kunaev D.A. (whoever knows - the first person of the Kazakh SSR) was at our place, visiting. And so, what he told, he heard it with his ears. “I have repeatedly asked the Politburo to create a closed cycle of production (from raw materials to finished products). For a multinational republic, this is very important - there will be something to be proud of. We’re not even making nails. And to me, you, Dimash Akhmetovich, give me grain, metals, uranium, etc. (but there is only one raw material in the list), and all we need to send to Kazakhstan is no doubt. As a result, Kazakhstan took the penultimate place among the republics of the USSR in welfare of citizens. " Also, from the history of our Motherland with you, I want to remind you of what events then happened in 1 in Alma-Ata.
          For Kazakhstan, and for Russia, now that the world is in crisis and we have money, it is very important to switch from the supply of raw materials to finished products. Before the crisis, in 2005, Nazarbayev was in Japan and Korea and asked their auto giants to come to us with their assembly plants. In response, polite smiles and nothing more. And now, please, and KIA, and TOYOTA, and HENDA (Hyundai is not the correct pronunciation) and SAN YEN. In my opinion, now that peace has come. crisis - there is a reduction in consumption of products, there is a redistribution of jobs in world production. Capitalists need to transfer production to where the cost of production will be minimal. In China, for example, labor is getting more expensive, there are no raw materials. Our countries (Russia, Kazakhstan) have a chance in obtaining new technologies.
          What can I say. Remember the creation of the T-34. Where did the little mess come to us? And what about aviation (I mean engines)? The list goes on.

      You really are oppressing the stick, and crushing the "loaf" unreasonably in Kazakhstan. All the same, he is our partner in the CSTO, the CIS, and the Customs Union. Our relations are not bad. So what if what? then Rosvertol will help. Or maybe there, Rosvertol and the taxi, Who knows? The Kazakhs have aircraft repair enterprises, one of them seems to be collecting small aircraft.

        Of course, everything can be, perhaps it will help. It’s just that it will look strange if a Russian corporation that produces combat helicopters for its armed forces helps its ally produce light attack helicopters, the development and rights of which belong to companies located in NATO countries and planned to purchase troops of this unit.

          Dear Olga, hello! Have you thought about why you need such Blair and other influential people in the West, senators there and others? They are denied to them to defend our interests, to lobby them. That there were no color revolutions, that such productions appeared. Remember the role of the former Chancellor of Germany in creating a gas pipeline along the bottom of the Baltic Sea. What pressure did Russia experience on this issue? Even the Baltic states, I'm not talking about Sweden and Finland, put sticks in the wheels. I think Schroeder played not the last role there.
          Yes, Olga, unfortunately this world practice - all, for example, American companies have similar lobbies in the US Senate and Congress. Recently there was a message to the world. Media that Mark Zuckerberg to lobby for the interests of Silicon Valley in the Senate and US Congress raises capital in the amount of $ 50 million. And there is no end to willing businessmen. This is it, the capitalist system. And the rule of the game is imposed on us.

            And also, Olga. Do you remember such a surname Tskhai (in my opinion) - ch. coach of the Kazakhstan boxing team. He is one of those who led our Korean diaspora. It was she who built bridges with South Korea, it was she who dragged LG and other Korean companies to us. And now we deliver these products to neighboring countries. And our compatriots work there. And this is no longer a screwdriver assembly - you can find the Old on the Internet. Type "LG in Kazakhstan." This is lobbying for interests. We need influential people in different countries to help our economy get on its feet; unfortunately, no one will do such things for free. And Tskhai even in Korea knows, they suggested moving and heading their boxing federation. But he stayed and benefited Kazakhstan. He knew his son - Yura. Somehow like this .
            Once again, with respect to Dame (especially the countrywoman) on our site, Dauren.

        So the Americans gave you the “carrot” so that you wouldn’t buy anything in Russia, and then this joint venture will be safely covered with a “copper basin”, this is not the first time it’s tea! In general, aviation begins with aircraft modeling and flying clubs.

            Alibek, welcome my friend! Is everything all right at home? How is your little son? I think that everything is good! From the beginning of March there was no time for the Internet, now a little time has appeared - since Saturday I’ve looked through all the old materials.
            And the site is also the same - as for other republics of our country, except Russia, all with sarcasm. Well, nothing, that's what we are. But Russia itself, what can it offer in the class of light helicopters? Nothing but Ansat, which is damp. So ours want to occupy this niche, and what's wrong with that? Bandits and all kinds of religious fanatics and a light helicopter with a machine gun can be driven.
            The only thing I don’t understand is why the 405 plant in Alma-Ata wasn’t given the assembly. By the way, since 2010, he has come out in profit, and before that he was in the cons. And now, they say, there is enough work, which cannot but rejoice. Risks would be lower if something goes wrong. Although Europe is now not up to fat and ambition - that's what they signed up for. Ours chose the right time.
            I know that ours and Russia were negotiating, even Mikheev came (who does not know - the general designer of Kamov helicopters). They signed some kind of memorandum, but that's all. What a pity, we have money. And Russia, to some extent, depends on the engines of Motor Sich (Ukraine). I read that they’ve made an engine there, which the same Mi-8 can raise to a height of over 8 meters. I won’t know how they did it. Maybe what kind of oxygen bottle was crammed in there? Well done, you can’t say anything !!!

      Quote: vladsolo56 So anyway lower than the Chinese will not work

      Yes, the Chinese, everything will be cheaper .. and including cheaper Russians ..
      Quote: vladsolo56 Why cultivate your own competitor.

      This is one of the main reasons why Kazakhstan cooperates with foreign firms ... Only, then there is no need to make a fuss that Kn "is looking at the West .."
      About Mi-8, that is to say Mi-17 ... I agree with Sirocco
      These two models are not competitors. They have different weight categories and tasks accordingly.

      I will give the following example: in the USSR there was no truck analogue of the “Gazelle”, which often led to the fact that you had to send Kamaz on the flight, Zila for completely unsuitable for their carrying capacity, i.e. in such cases, "empty air" was simply fumbling, and this, respectively, costs ...
      This subsequently led to a very large popularity of "Gazelles" .. They simply had no competitors in this class ...
      These helicopters must have a civilian counterpart, and I think the demand for it will be good enough for Russia. And actually, one of the main reasons that firm agreed with Kazakhstan - this is a focus on the Russian market, in connection with the Customs Union ..
      About, screwdriver production I would like to note that it’s better to work with a screwdriver than with a broom .. And jobs, taxes .. and engineers have the opportunity to work in their specialty ..

    So I say ..... All as victims of advertising reason and discuss only topics proposed by the media. But no one even thinks that the prospects for the development of our economy lie in small aviation and helicopter industry. For small aircraft, the field is generally not plowed in law. And this despite the fact that the technological developments are dark, just manage to make them. And in helicopter building, though they combed it out, they began to produce military helicopters, but there would be no breakthrough without a serial production of ansat and ka-226, that is, cheapening production and sale to the public ... It would be better if those who disagree came to the marsh with the signs “HAVE KA -226 TO EVERY RUSSIAN "maybe lawmakers would look in this direction and support the manufacturer only by expanding, organizing and regulating the domestic market for helicopter equipment and aircraft ..... And well done Kazakhs understand that their quantity and quality are expensive t from population density. I am generally surprised that they already produce helicopters.

    Phrase:

    gives a complete picture of the prospects of Kazakhstan in the production of helicopters. Knots and details (for the most part) are imported from abroad, assembly remains. You can declare yourself (possibly sometime in the future) as one of the largest assembly lines in the CIS, but this is not a full-fledged, independent production.

      As in the energy sector, Kazakhstan buys equipment from Western countries, and in the technical documentation for it, information only on the “input” and “output” cannot be opened in the event of a breakdown, and repair and maintenance for servicing rabid “grandmas” is worth it, so their equipment turns into a "milking" machine!

In addition, I am more than sure that this statement was agreed with Eurocopter itself. Personally, I am for healthy competition!

      there was a combat rival among Milevts and Kamovites

      And he, in general, is not a competitor to them, because will occupy a slightly different niche.

    At the expense of the analogue, and even direct laughing I will say this, a long time hanging over Moscow alone, such as you are going to do, mainly as a traveling one, such as the Hegeral suite in the Ministry of Emergencies, ovskoy coloring. The Ka-226, Ansat, Ka-62 salon also stuck their own, but you just need to bring this to mind, engage in production, and so did the nameplate and voila, and even grandmas in your pocket for a contract! We are doing European-quality helicopters! That we have a factory for the production of Augusta in the Moscow region, that this is your, “fighting” miracle. And before that, helicopters for nouveau riche were clandestinely collected from customs cleared parts. Well, now what’s on your “fighting”, what’s going to be cut on our luxurious ones at the government’s expense. Well, it’s a matter of catching up the blizzard and scratching it behind the ear, to aggravate national pride, so that God forbid anyone thinks. why the hell is it for that kind of money ?! And here you need to bred about a great helicopter power and a specific combat niche.

    So who is to blame that the Kamovtsi have so much dough profiled, it’s necessary to work. In Russia, some Serdyukov can be found and will buy helicopters from us like Mistral. laughing
