The fuselage of the first An-178 military transport aircraft assembled in Ukraine



On the air of one of the Ukrainian TV channels the assembly of the first military transport aircraft An-178 was shown. AN-178 - a new generation of cargo aircraft. Now only collect the fuselage for the first car. And there are hundreds of orders. Plane waiting in dozens of countries of the CIS, America and Africa. All because of its unique features.

According to the creators of the new aircraft, An-178 should come to replace obsolete An-12 transport aircraft. The new machine is designed for the transportation of goods with a maximum mass of 18-20 tons. The maximum flight range of the An-178 is 4 thousand kilometers.

It is planned that a promising transport vehicle will be operated at the same airfields as the veteran An-12, including it will be able to take off and land on unpaved runways. The An-178 aircraft is unified in terms of the airframe and on-board equipment on the 50-60% with the mass-produced An-148 and An-158 aircraft.

The first two turbofan engines of increased thrust for the An-178 aircraft are now manufactured on the basis of the D-436 aircraft engine at Motor-Sich, Zaporozhye, with the participation of the GP Zaporozhskoye Progress Design Bureau named after A.Ivchenko. Takeoff thrust of the new engine will be 8,3 - 8,6 tf.

The first information about the beginning of the design of the new An-178 cargo aircraft appeared in the open press in February 2010. During MAKS-2013, President - Antonov, the general designer of the state-owned enterprise Antonov, announced that the construction of the first prototype of the An-178 designed for flight tests to be completed in 2014.

          This will be the new AN-178 transporter, a replacement for the glorious, but old AN-12.
          It is necessary to merge the capabilities of Antonov Design Bureau (Ukraine) with the production capabilities of Russian aircraft factories into one production complex. Enough is divided into independent weak halves pre-losing in the competition on the global aviation market.
          Politics should be a continuation of the economic interests of the two states of Russia and Ukraine, but not a continuation of the economic interests of the comprador oligarchs of the two countries that divide our peoples.

    Actually, this is a continuation of 148, 158. A cargo with a ramp, so you can see in the pictures. Where, then, in the article are turbofans ?? This is then a completely different engine and placement on the wing. request Is this a new feature from KB, or journalistic crap?

      The first two turbofan engines of increased thrust for the An-178 aircraft are now being manufactured on the basis of the D-436 aircraft engine at the Zaporozhye Motor Sich JSC with the participation of the State Enterprise Zaporozhye MKB Progress named after A.G. Ivchenko.

      Certification tests of the D-436-148FM engine for the An-178 transport aircraft will be completed by the end of 2015, said Igor Kravchenko, general designer of Ivchenko-Progress.

      “The production of an experimental batch of engines has already begun. Four engines were launched into production, of which two will go to the first experimental aircraft and two to tests to certify the engine as a modification of the D-436-148, ”Kravchenko said. A distinctive feature of the D-436-148FM is the thrust increased by more than one ton - 8560 kilograms in emergency mode and 7700 kilograms in the take-off.

        In general, these are gas turbine engines that boost, and they are quite consistent with the sketches and layout of the airplane being presented. The article also says ---- ,, two turbofan engines of increased thrust for the An-178 aircraft are now being manufactured on the basis of the D-436 aircraft engine at the Zaporizhzhya Motor Sich JSC with the participation of the State Enterprise Zaporizhzhya MKB Progress named after A.G. . Ivchenko ". "That is, the propellers should be propellers, like on the An70. And these are two big differences and I have not heard what exactly the fans do for the 178th. For the Il112, yes, I heard an offer from Motor Sich to make an engine for propellers." So it looks like the article is journalistic crap about engines.

          Do not you confuse the concept, D-436 so turbofan the engine is a turbofan engine with a high bypass ratio, on the An 70 turbofan engines, for example, a theater engine with a modified propeller.

      And here is Euromaidan? In your planes are developed 1-1,5 months? The need has ripened for the replacement of the An-12 a very long time ago and the An-178 was designed at least from the last year and began to assemble the fuselage in the summer. Similarly, they also didn’t take them from the ceiling and didn’t do it on the knee for a month - bench tests of the D-436 modification are undergoing tests and they certainly haven’t done this since November.

      And in any way, if they do not receive the order of the Russian Ministry of Defense. Orders for hundreds of aircraft are still a chicken in the nest - a testicle at 3,14 ... e. Just like with the An70. The Euryopians drowned it, as a project of joint production of An 7X, pushing their bus No. 400, ours also staged political games. Of the entire line, only An148 barely breathes on VASO, even Pogosyan could not strangle him. Well, this device is generally a ramp, that is, essentially an army, it has a smaller segment of the civilian market. Nowadays, containers are being transported more and more. But then Rogozin and IL 214 are on the horizon together with the Indians. So the prospects are rather dim. And it's a pity, such a normal line appeared from An 148 and 178 to replace 24,26. Again, the legacy is good - the car can be said to be a continuation of the rather successful "Cheburashka"

        Ukraine and China will continue to develop cooperation in the aircraft industry. This was discussed during a meeting between the First Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Sergei Arbuzov and Vice Prime Minister of the People's Republic of China Wang Yang, which took place in China. This is reported by UNN with reference to the publication "Komsomolskaya Pravda in Ukraine".
        In particular, the parties agreed on cooperation in the field of aircraft construction with the subsequent delivery of aircraft to the Chinese market and to other countries. The project of such cooperation involves the development and joint production in China of an average transport aircraft designed on the basis of the An-178, the joint development and production of office administrative aircraft, the delivery by Ukraine of passenger aircraft of the An-148 and An-158 families to Chinese airlines, as well as the participation of the Ukrainian side in modernization of aircraft operated in China.

      According to Ukrainian aviation experts, the market for the An-178 aircraft can be about 800 aircraft in 10-12 years. Its approximate cost will be $ 20-25 million. Given the cost of the aircraft, the total market is estimated in the range from $ 14 billion to $ 20 billion

        This is the problem. I’m thinking that Antonov will not be able to reach such a pace, although the enterprise, though notable, hasn’t worked 80 units a year for so long, and the plane is not really a plane either.

    Well, Ukraine reports a lot about what. For example, on the account of the fact that it will join the European Union, or rather it will cleave like that, from the edge. So all these reports cost nothing until about May, when it will be clear where Ukraine is heading.

    Not for the sake of sake, but IMHO Antonovtsy stubbornly do not want to make a normal machine of normal dimension, then the An-70 is 2 times more than the An-12, then the An-178 is one and a half times less. What are they counting on?

    In general, the TK for the 70th was issued back in the USSR by the military, so claims against the Antonovites, and even IMHO, are past the box office. With regards to the 178th, then the logic is clear. They do not make a fundamentally new car for a specific customer. They proceed from the possible. They took and made 148 at the Cheburashka base - they put the engines under the wings on pylons, well, the avionics were refurbished, of course - it turned out to be quite a decent passenger plane. they can do it in metal until we have a horse in the drawings lying around in the drawings.So they follow the path of least resistance with minimal investment in a large old reserve with a decent result, especially since there are no requirements for an airplane as such due to the absence of a specific TK from specific customer.

    This old anecdote reminded me of "man, where did you lose your watch? - Yes, he's around the corner - why are you looking for something here? - Yes, it's brighter here!" Of course, they were quick to hurry - that's right, with 148 they also quickly hurried in advance. Here are just a so-so result. I don’t climb into the wangs, but doubts about this device torment me. And for sure, he is not in class An12

      Yes, this is too much, for this place, for the growth "of the transported equipment An70 was going. Rather, we could talk about some intermediate, in terms of load and airplane characteristics, an airplane. But here again one must understand the goals and objectives that the Ministry of Defense is obliged to issue to designers in the form of a technical specification, with a set of data on the dimensions and weight of the transported equipment, both available and for the future, at least in the first approximation. But this is not. Well, they went from the opposite - they say there is nothing close and not soon expected, so maybe They will take what they have and quite quickly put into the series. No. In principle, well done. Everything is better than Tupolev Plaza "as long as they keep under the motto" I am cut off, but I do not give up! " laughing

    It’s just that I evaluate this device through the prism of the necessity / uselessness of the Russian Air Force, and Mr. Kiva, despite the epics about 100500 orders, will match him to us. Well, in general, it’s hard to disagree with you, it’s better to build airplanes in any way than to trade KB land, kto argues that.

    Given the pace of construction of the 148th, it is not clear how they are going to assemble 800 pieces of the 178th. Dry, as far as I know, had to deliberately get off to a 10-day cycle.
