Vortex of news about the "Vortex": NPO "Izhmash" received a contract for the production of missiles

21
In recent days, the media have published several reports related to the production of weapons for the Russian army. It all started with the publication of information about the completion of one of the tenders of the Ministry of Defense, but soon there were reports of the upcoming trial.


At the end of last week, the Ministry of Defense announced the winner in the competition for the production of guided anti-tank missiles "Whirlwind-1". The contract worth 13, worth billions of rubles, was awarded to the Izhmash Research and Production Association (Izhevsk), which is part of the Russian Technologies state corporation. The competition was held in private, which is why the exact number and list of participants remain unknown. According to the Russian newspaper, in addition to Izhmash, two more production organizations submitted their bids for the tender, but they did not succeed in defeating the Izhevsk enterprise. Thus, over the next two years, Izhmash will be engaged in the manufacture of the Whirlwind-1 anti-tank missiles. The total number of ordered ammunition has not yet been specified. The deadline for the last deliveries under this contract is 2015 year.

According to the general director of Izhmash K. Busygin, this contract is the largest government order in several years for his enterprise. At the same time, Izhmash has all the production capacities, technologies and personnel necessary to fulfill this order. The general director promised that the order of the Ministry of Defense will be executed with due quality and on time.

A little later, the head of the NGO "Izhmash" explained that in order to fulfill all contractual obligations, the company would have to involve several related organizations. Due to the technical complexity of the production of high-precision guided missile systems, it is planned to cooperate with other plants and enterprises. A special role in this cooperation will be assigned to the Izhevsk Mechanical Plant, which already has experience in the production of Vikhr-1 anti-tank missiles. Also subcontractors under the contract of the Ministry of Defense can become Sarapula electric generator and radio factories or the enterprise "Plastic" from the city of Dzerzhinsk. The exact list of organizations that are planned to be involved in the production of missiles has not yet been published. It is likely that it is currently at the stage of formation and negotiations. Last week, there were reports that, to fulfill the new order, Izhmash plans to take a loan of about half a billion rubles.

The contract worth 13 billion rubles is expected to give a significant impetus to the development of Izhmash, in particular, and to the future Kalashnikov concern in general. A. Semenov, Deputy General Director for Production at Izhmash, said that in order to fulfill the order, the company would need to create more than three hundred new jobs for highly skilled workers. Currently, preparations have begun for the future mass production of missiles.

Guided anti-tank missiles 9А4172К "Whirlwind-1" are used as part of the complex 9К121М "Whirlwind-M". This system was developed by the Tula Instrument Design Bureau in the early nineties and is proposed for arming Ka-52 attack helicopters and Su-25TM attack aircraft. With the help of an automatic laser control system, the Whirl-M complex is capable of hitting targets at distances up to 8-10 kilometers. The rocket is equipped with a tandem cumulative fragmentation warhead and flies to the target at an average speed of the order of 600 meters per second. It is assumed that the Whirlwind-1 missiles made at NPO Izhmash, as part of the Whirlwind-M complex, will become the standard guided anti-tank weapons of Ka-52 helicopters.

One day with the news other messages regarding the victory of the Izhevsk company came to the conclusion of the competition As it turned out, the decision of the tender committee caused a protest from some bidders. So, the Moscow-based NPO High-Precision Systems and Technologies (NPT VST) on Monday protested against the results of the tender for the supply of missiles. In addition, NPO VST appealed to the court with a corresponding statement. A. Gogolev, Deputy General Director of High-Precision Systems and Technologies, said in an interview with Interfax news agency that the grounds for exclusion of VST NPO from the tender participants were simply contrived. In this regard, the company was forced to go to court.

The statement of claim was filed just a few days ago and therefore it is too early to talk about the results of the judicial process. If NPO VST can confirm the correctness of its claims, the tender can be held anew. As in this case, the following events will go - a big question. However, Izhevsk Scientific and Production Association "Izhmash" already says about the beginning of preparation for mass production of military-ordered rockets.

For Izhmash, this contract, in addition to financial and social aspects, will be useful from the point of view of cooperation with other enterprises. At present, on the basis of the Izhevsk plant and a number of other enterprises, the Kalashnikov concern is being created. In addition to the leading NGO, it will include the NITI Progress, the Vyatka-Polyansky plant Molot, as well as a number of other defense industry enterprises. During the production of Vikhr-1 missiles, Izhmash specialists are expected to be able to establish contacts with these organizations and learn how to work together with them. How effective the new concern will be, so far it remains only to guess. At the same time, all responsible persons associated with the upcoming association of enterprises and organizations, assess it positively.

If the creation of the Kalashnikov concern will indeed prove to be a justified and necessary step, then over the coming months, the Russian air force, without any delay or delays, will begin to receive new guided missiles for helicopters. Thus, the newest Ka-52 will receive new strike weapons and will be able to raise their combat potential.

    sometimes it is necessary to lobby the interests of unique enterprises. Do not let the collective of KB and factories fall apart. And upholding the interests of the losing party in court is a good practice of openness of decisions and not of underhanded squabbles. They will prove that better means better and weapons that we need so much.

    And what enterprise must be on the verge of ruin for the troops to use the third generation Hermes-A complexes? Just wondering.

      Izhmash is not on the brink - he is ruined, he does not have any personnel and production capacities for the production of the WTO. In buildings for a long time or trade in siding and furniture, or crows fly. The last WTO contract 6-8 years ago ended in scandal, because instead of new ones, they put corrective shells from military depots released years before 10 before the contract. It is clear that the customer was indignant. NPO Izhmash - the authorized capital of 100 000 rubles, didn’t it seem to you, it’s exactly one hundred thousand. What equipment and personnel can be talked about. Gogolev was the driving force on Izhmash, he quit when the whistle with the young directorate from Rostec began. The competition was pushed by Rogozin in order to maintain his interests on Izhmash. The only chance is to create a concern with IZHMEKH at an accelerated pace, then there will be some chance at the expense of IMZ to fulfill this order.

        So they aim at it. They are trying to create a Kalashnikov concern, following the example of USC, UAC and so on.
        MDA yesterday announced that up to 2015 rubles will be spent on the purchase of a new machine park in 2017-100. Approximately comparable amounts are spent in the whole of 000-000.

        then in the coming months, the Russian air force without any delay or delay will begin to receive new guided missiles for helicopters
        Then Cyril hastened.
        Taking into account all the amusements with this contract and the interests of the "banded" participants, these products, at best, will begin to make in the next year.

          much becomes clear

          Actually the batch production of Vikhr-1 will be carried out by the very company that was originally engaged in this work - the Izhevsk Mechanical Plant http://ria.ru/defense_safety/20130724/951763399.html. Without exception, all serial missiles of the Whirlwind complex were previously launched by them. There is no sensation here. KBP will receive its walrus as a developer of anti-tank systems and anti-tank systems. And it can calmly finish the “Peck” (they, it seems, by 2016 promised to make all three types of missiles with GOS). Everything is logical.

            It is somehow not very correct to wait for a long-range ground "Hermes", which even has a different rocket. Though unified with the rest.

              So we are not talking about the ground complex, but about the airborne one - “Klevok-A” (“Hermes-A”).

                Well, he was already tested 10 years ago, ready for state and mass production.

                  In 2002-2003 only factory tests were carried out from a Ka-52 helicopter. Moreover, a missile with a laser semi-active seeker was ready. But even she did not pass the GI. KBP is ready to offer it for export (a passport was received a few years ago). And for now that's all.
                  Have you ever heard from the acting representatives of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation about the interest of the department in the “Peck” / “Hermes” complex?

    It is good if there are 2 winners here - the army, which received high-quality weapons and a manufacturer, who retained and raised their production and personnel.

        and on what basis do they divide them into generations? One thing is clear - the development is old.

          Based on the principle of management. It's not like in aviation, where generations are the way they want to hang out. Everything is extremely honest and extremely accurate.
          First generation- guidance on three points: target-missile-target. The operator combines three points.
          The second generation- guidance on two points. target sight. The operator combines two points. Well, or for him it does the target tracking equipment. However, the installation of anti-tank systems should still be on the line of sight-missile-target before the defeat of the latter.
          Third Generation- "fire-forget"

        "Attack", "Whirlwind", "Threat", "Shturm" - XNUMXnd generation aircraft missiles
        "Hermes" - aircraft missiles of the III generation

        The whirlwind was adopted by the 1985
        Whirlwind-M was adopted by the 1990
        The tests of Hermes ended in 2003.

          So it is necessary first of all to equip aviation with 3-generation rockets, and not with old developments !!! Or here the lobbyists took a shot! Or is the difference in production price large ???

    This is all the same correct, better than flying crows in the shops. And so production will be created, even if the missiles are somewhat outdated. At the same time they will modify and create new ones.

    In some transfer voiced exemplary price order.
    One large-caliber cartridge is the hourly wage rate of the worker.
    One shell - the monthly salary of a worker.
    One PT rocket is a car.
