"Izhmash" puts on "Whirlwind"

Izhmash intends to attract 500 million rubles of credit, as well as bank guarantees in the amount of 13 billion rubles. At the moment, the company is negotiating with Sberbank.


The funds are necessary for the defense enterprise to conclude a deal with the Ministry of Defense for the production and supply of Vortex-1 guided missiles, Interfax reports.

The bank guarantee will be valid until the end of 2015, and the loan will be raised for less than one year.

The fact that Izhmash will take part in the tender for the production of Vikhr-1 guided missiles became known at the end of January 2013. Then it was reported that the release of anti-tank missiles will be adjusted within three years. This company will need additional labor.

Aviation The Vikhr missile system with guided missiles is designed to destroy armored vehicles, including equipment equipped with reactive armor, and low-speed air targets that fly at speeds up to 800 km / h.

The complex allows you to fire single missiles or a volley. The high supersonic speed of the guided missile (up to 610 m / s) reduces the vulnerability of the helicopter during the attack and allows hitting several targets in one go. To overcome the distance in 4 thousand meters rocket need 9 seconds.
For comparison: the most powerful American helicopter PTR FGN-114K "Hallfire" moves at a subsonic speed, and this distance covers 15 seconds.

When creating a rocket used aerodynamic scheme "duck". Rockets have a folding wing. For guidance is an all-day automatic sighting system. When approaching the target location area, its coordinates in the on-board computer of the helicopter were entered in advance, at a distance of about 12 km the mode of television scanning of the terrain automatically turns on. Having detected a target image on a television screen, the pilot directs a helicopter in its direction, and then frames the target with a grid of sight and presses the auto-tracking button. The sight goes to the auto tracking of the target, and when the permitted range is reached, it launches a rocket.

The operation of the laser beam guidance system and the automatic target tracking system ensures high accuracy of shooting, which is practically independent of range. The laser-beam control system has a radiation power that is an order of magnitude smaller than the threshold power of the operation of warning systems for laser irradiation of foreign production, which ensures a high concealment of use.

The company estimates the planned production of anti-tank guided missiles "Whirlwind-1" to 2015 year in 12,15 billion rubles.

Recall, the general director of the NPO Izhmash Konstantin Busygin 31 said at a press conference that the company plans to solve almost all financial problems by winning the competition for the production of Whirl-1 missiles. According to him, the results of the competition can be announced in mid-July 2013. Busygin did not name the contract amount for the products "Whirlwind-1", explaining that it is not subject to disclosure.

"IZHMASH" - the largest Russian manufacturer of automatic combat and sniper weapons, guided artillery shells, as well as a wide range of civilian products - hunting rifles, sporting rifles, machine tools and tools. The company was founded in 1807. Izhmash products are shipped to 27 countries of the world, including the United States, Great Britain, Germany, Norway, Italy, Canada, Kazakhstan and Thailand.

      And is there a public photo with shooting "Whirlwind"?) And on the topic, well done! More missiles are needed, and to store them better and not in one place, otherwise it will turn out like in Leningrad with the Badayevsky warehouses ..

      Well, thank God! I already thought it was a sinful thing that the Whirlwind military would be stolen. They will not order it. But he was mistaken, it turns out. smile
      The complex is just wonderful. And what’s important is still a big potential for modernization.

        Izhmash has payables of 8 yards at the beginning of the year (with a registered capital of 100 (!)). Mainly due to failed orders and elementary theft. Neither own nor leased property. The production of vortices is planned in the areas of the killed three hundredth production. But this production now also does not belong to Izhmash, and in fact there is no production there except for a shopping center and offices. There, for three years, it is only necessary to restore production - to import machines, to restore infrastructure.

        Effective TOP managers steer.

      The article is not about the Whirlwind, but about the fact that Izhmash is asking for a loan from Sber ... I was struck that the loan was asked for less than a year belay In short, another mess, gain more, bankruptcy will write everything off

    But what about the third generation represented by Hermes-A?
    It is known that in 2003 tests of the complex on the Ka-52 helicopter were successfully completed.
    Hermes-A is an aircraft modification of the complex optimized for deployment on a wide range of aircraft - from attack aircraft and helicopters to transport aircraft. The range of application of aviation modifications is 15-20 km day and night.
    On the marching section of the trajectory, the rocket develops a speed of up to 1 m / s, and on average along the trajectory the speed is about 000 m / s.
    The flight control of the rocket is carried out by air rudders. Missile guidance system - combined. At the stage of reaching the target area, it is carried out using inertial or radio command guidance, and in the final section, it is homing. The missile can accommodate various homing heads, including laser
    The Hermes-A complex significantly increases the capabilities of attack aircraft to defeat all types of ground and surface, as well as low-speed air targets. Also, due to the supersonic speed of the rocket and the long range of application, the danger to the carrier from the enemy’s air defense is reduced. The complex has a high degree of automation and allows salvo firing at various targets.
