Upgraded IL-38H

36
According to the blog bmpd, at present, in Zhukovsky, the IL-38N anti-submarine aircraft is being tested, at which the Novella-P-38 search and sighting system was installed at the entrance to the modernization. It is worth noting that this is the first Il-38 aircraft, which was modernized as part of the agreements between the Russian Ministry of Defense and Aviation complex them. Ilyushin back in 2012. This contract, worth almost three and a half billion rubles, was signed for three years and concerned the serial modernization of five aircraft of the IL-38 Naval Aviation of the Navy into the IL-38N variant.




Two enterprises were engaged in the transformation of the first two aircraft: the Pushkin 20-th Aviation Repair Plant and the Moscow VM Myasishchev Experimental Machine-Building Plant. Last year, both aircraft after the implementation of the first stage of work were sent to Zhukovsky. There, on the base, the installation of the “Novella-P-38” PPS, manufactured at the Leninets OJSC plant, was carried out. Thus, it can be assumed that the modernization of the first aircraft was successfully completed.



Previously Aviation Complex. Ilyushin has already been converted two military aircraft Il-38N. The first of them was tested in 2001. As for the second aircraft, after modernization in 2009, it was used in the State Testing Program, and in the spring of 2012 it was transferred to the Northern Aviation fleet.

It is worth noting that in the last month of this year, the head of the Aviation Complex named. Ilyushin - General Designer Viktor Livanov made a statement that before 2020, they plan to retool for the Russian Ministry of Defense a total of about thirty IL-38 airplanes according to the IL-38Н variant.

      not BETTER, but better, there are so many mistakes in such a simple word, the question arises about the possibility of mental degradation. Eyes cut such bloopers in the first comments.

            650 kilometers per hour is a modest speed. But the range is what. I flew the "eighteenth" from the Far East to Moscow several times, landing in Krasnoyarsk

              Such an aircraft does not need high speed. You noticed correctly about the range. That is the duration of the flight. I think he will still have a refueling system in the air (probably there) and ... "hang" out of spite to the foe. hi

    It seems that Novella is becoming a classic of the genre in the search and destruction of enemy submarines. smile

    The Novella system (developed by the Leninets holding company) designed to equip naval aviation is capable of detecting air targets at a distance of up to 90 km, and surface targets up to 320 km. At the same time, the system simultaneously keeps in the field of view 32 targets both above and under water. It is used for conducting radar underwater, surface and air reconnaissance, gives target designation to weapons.
    The Novella complex combines a digital computer with control posts for two operators, each of which is equipped with 13-inch liquid crystal displays, and a commander's post equipped with a large monitor.
    On the basis of the Il-38N, a variant for the aviation of the Indian naval forces was created, which received the designation Il-38SD (Sea Dragon - "Sea Serpent"). The Il-38SD anti-submarine aircraft has advanced combat capabilities. In addition to solving purely anti-submarine missions, it is capable of performing missions as a naval patrol, an electronic reconnaissance aircraft, a search and rescue aircraft, and even a strike aircraft against surface targets. This complex allows the use of X-35 missiles and APR-3E torpedoes. The fuselage also has rocket pylons. The IL-38SD is equipped with the latest onboard search and sighting system of the Morskoy Serpent PLO.

        As far as I remember, the Indians were not satisfied with the characteristics of the search for underwater targets. They did not complain about the radar, but maybe they corrected something in our version. Although it is clear that patching such machines is not from a good life.

    An urgent need to replace the old man Ilu, all the same, how not to upgrade the glider does not rejuvenate (

    The modernization of anti-submarine aviation cannot but rejoice, although of course I would like something newer based on a jet aircraft, for example Tu-204, similar to the American R-8 Poseidon, but nevertheless:

    Pancake! Well, why is everything so painfully SLOW-SMALL!
    Each fleet must have at least 2-3 pieces ...
    After all, the glider itself is on "terra incognito", all the drawings are there.
    I remember 1200 Tu-16s in the early 60s, and all were "on the wing"
    Yes, and the T-50 does not spread its wings over Russia.
    It is necessary to transfer the defense system for the 3rd shift and disable game and social sites on all computers at defense plants.

    Improving the combat qualities of existing military equipment at the moment is an acceptable option based on the current state of our aircraft industry, do not forget that gentlemen liberals almost completely cut down our industry, including aircraft production.

        The Novella complex combines a digital computer with control stations of two operators. The new complex includes a high-resolution thermal imaging system, a magnetometer, an optical sensor system (including laser, television and thermal imaging channels), a gravitational anomaly sensor and other equipment that allows solving both military tasks (searching for submarines, fighting surface targets), and conduct scientific research in the field of oceanology, ecology and geological exploration. The modernized Il-38N aircraft with the Novella complex can be used, among other things, for compiling magnetic and gravity maps of the Arctic Ocean.
        Two automated workstations of operators are located in the cockpit of the modernized IL-38 aircraft, each of which is equipped with two LCD color multifunction screens and a control panel with a keyboard. In addition to the tactical situation, a digital navigation chart can also be displayed on the screens. One screen of a similar type is also located on the dashboard of the navigator of the aircraft crew. The armament of the aircraft is complemented by a new generation of discharged sonar and magnetic buoys.

          Such an aircraft carrier as an elephant shot, as well as torpedoes. It’s better to throw 250 kg with bombs. Or drop the plane itself.
