Another batch of upgraded An-32 transferred to India

The seventh batch of upgraded An-32 transport aircraft in the number of 5 units was transferred to the Indian Air Force. This correspondent ARMS-TASS over the phone said the representative of the ASTC "Antonov".


The transfer of the aircraft to the Indian side was attended by representatives of the State Corporation "Ukroboronprom", the state enterprise "Zavod 410 GA" and the GHVP "Spetstechnoexport". The aircraft were upgraded at production facilities in Kiev as part of the contract concluded at 2009, and have now departed from Kiev to Kanpur (India).

The contract for the amount of about 400 million dollars for the repair and upgrading of X-NUMX An-105 Indian Air Force was signed in July 32 between the Air Force of the Ministry of Defense of India and the Specialized Export Industrial Unit, a subsidiary of Ukrspetsexport.

According to the terms of the contract, which is the largest in stories Ukrainian-Indian bilateral military-technical cooperation, 40 aircraft were to be modernized in Ukraine, and the remaining 65 aircraft - at the Indian Air Force BRD-1 aircraft plant in Kanpur. The executors of the contract are SE Antonov and SE 410 Civil aviation».

As part of the deep modernization of the Indian machines installed modern equipment of Ukrainian and foreign production. In particular, this equipment for the prevention of collisions of aircraft in the air, early warning of collisions with the ground, satellite navigation system, aircraft range finders, upgraded radio altimeters, a new radar with two multifunctional indicators, new oxygen equipment, improved crew seats.

The upgraded An-32 will be able to land on the II category of the ICAO. At the same time, fuel consumption and the mass of an empty modernized aircraft will be significantly lower compared to the base case.

In addition, in accordance with the 2009-year 3 contract concluded with the Indian Air Force in December for the amount of 110 million, Motor Sich, Zaporizhia, is upgrading the AI-20 engines of Indian An-32.

As specified in the Antonov State Enterprise, as of today Ukraine has been modernized and handed over to the customer by seven lots of 35 planes from 40, which must be modernized in Ukraine.

The first 10 upgraded aircraft transferred to the customer in 2011 year, even on 10 machines - in 2012 and 2013 years. The next five An-32 7-party aircraft were sent to India in March of this year. The transfer of the final batch of aircraft, the modernization of which is carried out in Ukraine, is scheduled for the summer of this year.

      Well done Indians, they buy and do not try to copy equipment, unlike China.

      JOHNSNZ - Wow, flying, weird.

      Wow, a significant part of Russian attack helicopters and transport planes flies on Ukrainian engines (deliveries from Motor Sich plant amounted to about 1 thousand units per year). And how they can only fly them, it’s just strange .... And about the AN-148 in the Russian Air Force there’s nothing to say - it’s also unclear how they are kept in the air ...

    Why skepticism? We will rejoice for the Ukrainian defense industry! There, at the enterprises, too, hard workers work hard and they are not thrilled with what is happening in Ukraine! I can not force myself to see enemies in them! And the West only wants this!

        There is a nuance in the fact that India on Ukrainian issues supports Russia. And in theory, the Ukrainian authorities should have terminated the supply of weapons and military equipment

            The motor from the An-26 weighs 600 kg, and from the An-32 more than a ton. Here, rather An-8 is closer.
            In Russia, not a single one turned out while they introduced the USSR and killed. The total circulation of approximately 350 pcs.

              In technical terms, only one thing was clear - the An-26 needed to be equipped with more powerful engines. But which ones? As always in our country, the real choice was very small. We stopped at the AI-20M power 4250 e.s. and propellers AB-62 and diameter 4,5 m, that is, they decided, without further ado, to use the power plant from An-12. Note that AI-26ВТ engines were installed on the An-24, developing 2820 electric power, and thus, the increase in power amounted to more than 50%. (http://military-informer.narod.ru/tra-an-32.html)

    The question is different, many customers have repeatedly complained about the quality of repair work carried out by the Ukrainian military-industrial complex.
    Iraq:
    Iraq has imposed penalties on Ukraine in the amount of 165 thousand dollars for breaking the contract for the supply of An-32B transport aircraft, writes the Ukrainian magazine "Focus", citing sources close to the arms business. An agreement for the supply of six transporters was concluded between Iraq and Ukraine at the end of 2009. The deal was worth $ 99 million. The first An-32B were to be handed over to the customer in the fall of 2010.

    Kazakhstan:
    The military court of Kazakhstan issued a sentence in a high-profile case on bribery by employees of Ukrspetsexport, the Ukrainian intermediary in the field of export of military products and services, of senior generals of the Ministry of Defense of the republic. It is reported by Tengrinews.kz.
    According to the verdict, the former head of the main arms department, Major General Almaz Asenov, who was accused of taking bribes from Ukrainian experts, was sentenced to 11 years in prison with confiscation of property. He will serve his sentence in a maximum security colony. Asenov will also be stripped of his military rank.
    Ukrspetsexport employees detained in Kazakhstan, Alexander Shkolyarenko and Alexander Khrulev, were sentenced to six years in a maximum security penal colony with confiscation of property.
    Local media later claimed that the Ukrainians were accused of giving bribes to the Kazakh military because they “accepted the repaired AN-72 without complaints”, one of which subsequently crashed. We are talking about a plane of the border service of Kazakhstan that crashed on December 25 2012 of the year near Shymkent. Seven crew members, 19 border guards, including the acting head of the border service, Turganbek Stambekov, became victims of the disaster.

    Well, I won't write about the "peremogu" with deliveries to Iraq of the BTR-4, it is already well-written without me. The only thing they were good for was to carry banderlog from the National Guard of Ukraine. But in addition to Iraq, there were failures of Ukrainian armored vehicles, in particular the BTR-3 in Sudan, when, having ordered 120 armored personnel carriers of this type, having received the first ten vehicles, the Sudanese side in 2012 canceled the contract and refused to receive 110 other units, the UAE (the starting customer that financed its development), Myanmar, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan - when, after receiving small batches of BTR-3, the customers refused to further receive this equipment.

    They managed to pass on luck, and it would be like with Kamaz - suddenly the banderlogs after taking hemp will also want to fly.

    the kshatriya caste rules in India, therefore its military habits are understandable. For me it would be better to direct the financial flow to the needs of the population, otherwise they are below the poverty line

    the matter is not in the kshatriya caste but in serious graters with Pakistan and with China there are problems, India cannot afford to have a weak army. and of course you can not compare the An-32 and An 26, thanks to more powerful engines, it has much better take-off and landing characteristics in mountain conditions and at high temperatures.
