The IL-38 fleet will be upgraded

30

Aviation the Ilyushin complex in the interests of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation will upgrade almost three dozen IL-38 anti-submarine aircraft by 2020


This was reported to ITAR-TASS by the general director - the general designer of OAO Il Victor Livanov.

“We must make (modernize) the 2020 of such aircraft to the 28 of the Russian Ministry of Defense of Russia,” said Livanov. He added that the modernization program for these aircraft is already underway, refusing to specify its parameters.

“The machine is absolutely secret,” noted the head of Ilyushin, speaking of the modernized version of the IL-38.

        IL-38 - A four-engine all-metal monoplane with a low-lying trapezoidal straight wing, traditional single-tail plumage and a three-post landing gear. Compared to the IL-18, the IL-38 in the middle of the fuselage has two cargo bays for search and destruction of submarines. The wing is shifted forward by three meters, under the cockpit there is a radome antenna radar of the search and sighting system "Berkut-38". In the stern of the machine, behind the tail is the fairing of the magnetometer sensor.
        The power plant - four TVD AI-20M series 6I with propellers AV-64 series 04A. In the rear of the fuselage installed turbogenerator unit (APU) TG-16. Fuel system with a total capacity of 35153 liters of TS-1 jet fuel.
        For the first time in the practice of Soviet aircraft construction on the IL-38, the Flame-264 on-board digital computer was used as part of the Berkut-38 search and sighting system developed by NII-131.
        The IL-38 crew consists of seven people: two pilots (ship's commander, assistant to the ship's commander), navigator-navigator, radar navigator-operator, operator of an aircraft receiving indicator device (SPIU), flight engineer, and flight attendant.
        Flight-navigation system "Path-4B-2K";
        Autopilot AP-6E
        Navigation device ANP-3V
        Course system TKS-P
        Radio compass ARK-B
        Search and sighting system "Berkut-38";
        Magnetometer APM-60 or APM-73.
        A part of the aircraft (about 12) underwent modernization for the use of more modern radio beacons RGB-16. For this purpose, the Emerald equipment was installed on the aircraft, which included the Volkhov 68-channel receiving device, information processing and display equipment, and interfaces with the Berkut faculty.
        Submarine search tools - RGB-1 omnidirectional sonar buoys, RGB-2 passive directional, RGB-3, RGB-16 autonomous sonar passive-active stations (144 RGB-1, 10 RGB-2, 3 RGB-3).
        Means of destruction of submarines - two anti-submarine torpedoes AT-1 or AT-2 or APR-1 or APR-2.
        Anti-submarine bombs, sea mines, UAS rescue containers, naval markers (landmark sea bombs OMAB-12D), etc.

        Modifications
        IL-38SD is an upgraded patrol and anti-submarine aircraft equipped with the new Sea Dragon sighting and navigation system manufactured by NPO Leninets. As part of the modernization of aircraft, it was proposed to extend their technical resource for 10-15 years. Additional suspension units are located under the center section of the aircraft (2 nodes)
        IL-38N (Novella) is an upgrade option for the IL-38 for the Russian Navy to the level of IL-38SD (on March 5, 2012 one copy was delivered to the Northern Fleet air base)

      While one buys and sells the latest Poseidons writing off their Orions, ours are proud of the weak modernization of ancient Ilov.

      it is clear that il-38 is yesterday and it is necessary to catch up, and not to push loot yesterday

                    I agree in many ways, +! especially since in St. Russ, the repair process is debugged on good , and there is still enough repair fund with small developments. And the screws are ours wink

          look at the capabilities of Poseidon and IL-38 "So you think we will fly a turboprop aircraft, but we don’t need a jet? Is it not easier to invest this money in a new project and especially in new search and defeat systems - which our developers of onboard equipment, say, IL-38SD" Sea Snake "and did not dream.

          ps-even Hindus move away from their IL-38 and buy Poseidons - they probably understand that the difference in capabilities is like earth and sky. To the same, the pressurized system of Sea Serpent failed the tests in India (like ours, Novella will be).

            As you know, military transport aircraft, as well as their modifications are created on the basis of passenger especially in Russia. Design Bureau Ilyushin and Design Bureau Tupolev do this, in Ukraine Design Bureau Antonov. Sludges and carcasses are sharpened on a jet mainly Anushka on a turboprop and jet. What do we have at the moment. Russia-India - MTS (?); Russia - IL-76, IL-38, An-72 (74), An-26, An-12; Ukraine-Russia - An-70, An-140, An-148, An-158 and then the last three civilians. From this and dance.

            Yes, they rolled their "Orions" to holes and now they are replacing. Well, we still do not have a worthy replacement for the aviation platform. Alas! It seems that KLA will not allow to make a transfer to Tu from the principle - only the GRU has struck a couple on the base of the 214th.

              I somehow have no doubt that if a power supply system fails, any aircraft will be forced to leave for an emergency landing. And somehow I don’t understand why it could fail? Missiles hit the fuselage? Or again a hypothetical EMP? The task of the PLO aircraft is to search for the enemy’s submarines and monitor the surface situation, where does the notorious EMR come from in the middle of the ocean?

        B-52 is the day before yesterday, and will serve for a long time. IL-38 - a plane unique in strength, reliability, unpretentiousness (the list goes on) and can serve until complete physical deterioration. The most critical parameter is the three-spar wing (such a power circuit is almost never used due to the high cost of repairing the middle spar).
