Ball balloons for Russian missiles will be made in Voronezh

Voronezh Mechanical Plant (VMZ) will produce titanium ball-cylinders used in the liquid engines of Russian rockets, which were previously supplied by the Dnepropetrovsk Makarov Central Machine-Building Plant (Yuzhmash), RIA reports "News" with reference to the newspaper Kommersant.

Ball balloons for Russian missiles will be made in Voronezh

“The organization of titanium ball-balloon production at Vyksa Steel Works is quite logical within the framework of the import substitution program,” said Igor Burenkov, director of the media and information policy department of the United Rocket and Space Corporation (ORKK).

According to a high-ranking source in Roscosmos, VSW will get around 1.1 to start production of balloons. billion rubles. They will be singled out within the framework of the Federal Target Program “Development of the defense industry complex for 2011-2020 years”.

A few months ago, the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine announced a ban on the export to Russia of military products, as well as dual-use goods.

However, as the newspaper notes, the replacement of the export of balloon balloons was considered as early as 2013, and the "political crisis in Ukraine only accelerated the decision."

The balloon in a sealed spherical titanium design contains high-pressure helium, which is used to operate pneumatic systems of fluid engines. They are equipped with the Angara-1.2, Angara-A5, Proton missiles, the Fregat and Breeze overclocking units.

    The production is quite complicated, we need specialists, industrial capacities and much, much more (you need to be able to work with titanium) - and so did Ukraine refuse this? belay
    Conclusion: Americans will force Ukraine to beg to the enthusiastic shouts of "The fat has been dropped!"
    Russia - to increase high-tech jobs (with a decent salary)

    The Russian defense industry should be 100 percent independent of any supply of components from other countries. This is a national security issue.

    And what is strange then? It was necessary to destroy the real production of the union state, creating his own with great difficulties, having the same in cooperation from them?
    The current situation is another matter ... when the junta’s rulers breathe in the ass to the Amers and they turn Russia from a friend into an enemy,
    zombifying your population with this.

    I'm starting to be afraid in advance. One of the problems is that manufacturers, under the pressure of "effective owners and top management," freely "adapt" the product for their production and those processes "reducing the cost". At the same time, no one bothers with comprehensive tests of the resulting device and no one informs the rest of the participants and the parent organization how and what they changed, in the end - "Are there any complaints about the buttons? - There are no complaints about the buttons, oh your rocket fell."

      Any replacement of material or technology must be agreed upon, just so the gag will not work. There are military representatives at each factory so everything will be fine! And in Ukraine, the factory could also reduce the cost, so I'm even sure that our products will turn out better!

    You read and envy, Ukrainians have nothing to do, they don’t need to, and so they will live and Europe will feed them. And the people of the house will sit without work and eat the holy spirit. And we will do our own safety in the old fashioned way. Probably we are not as correct as everyone else. We don’t shit in our pocket; we don’t live as we are told by others who can’t figure it out. Nevertheless, I am glad that I live in Russia and am proud of it.
