49
The Russian Defense Ministry received the first batch (4 units) of the upgraded Mi-8AMTSH helicopters, betraying RIA News with reference to the press service of the holding "Russian Helicopters".



Russian Helicopters Holding handed over the first batch of modernized Mi-8AMTSH military transport helicopters to the Russian Ministry of Defense. Four helicopters were built at the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant (U-UAZ), part of the holding, as part of the implementation of the state defense order "- reads the press service information.

A long-term contract for the supply of helicopters to the military department was signed in August last year and provides for the delivery of vehicles with improved resource indicators, which, among other things, make it possible to significantly save money on maintenance during the entire life cycle of the helicopter.

The press service reports that the helicopters of the first batch "installed engines of increased power VK-2500 with a modernized (enhanced) transmission, which provide objective control of the accounting of operating time, and also make more efficient use of the helicopter in high mountains and areas with hot climates." The machine is equipped with a new auxiliary power unit TA-14, which has an increased launch height and energy efficiency, as well as modern weapons.


According to the agency, the helicopter has a lightweight ceramic-metal armor with a larger area, which protects the crew and vital units, and the latest flight and navigation equipment installed on the machine ensures the performance of the full range of combat tasks facing the crew.

          Mi-8AMTSh is an assault transport helicopter developed at the Ulan-Ude plant. The vehicle is based on the military transport GXNUMX. The helicopter is equipped with armor protection for crew members (the bottom and front of the pilot's cabin, between the cockpit and the cargo compartment, in the cargo compartment, the armor plate is installed under the gunner's seat); suspended weapons are located on six suspension nodes, the rear hemisphere is covered by a remotely controlled PKT machine gun.
          The "highlight" that distinguishes the AMTSh from the previous versions of the "eight" is the inclusion of ATGM "Attack" or "Shturm", air-to-air missile "Igla" in the armament. For the first time, the Mi-8AMTSh helicopter was shown at the Farnborough'97-99 exhibition, it was also demonstrated at the MAKS'97. The Mi-8AMTSh may be of interest, first of all, to countries that are armed with transport Mi-8s, but do not have specialized combat helicopters; China, for example. Considering that the modernization of the Mi-8 into the Mi-8AMTSh is cheaper than the upgrading to the modern level of the Mi-24, and the Mi-8 itself can be used more flexibly compared to the "crocodiles", direct competition between the two helicopters is also possible. At the Farnborough'99 exhibition, the helicopter received the name "Terminator".

      Yeah, the first 4 went to the troops well .. But given that the contract was signed a year ago .. well, let's hope that they disperse! And who else wants our turntables to deliver mattresses to afghan for virtual tokens? Or wait for a complete replacement of equipment in YOUR troops? And then you can think about where. and how many..

        In general, the Mi-8 AMTSH has delivered about 70-80 units in recent years. Plus MTV5. And the first - under this contract this year, I suppose.

        The production of VK-2500 helicopter engines will be conducted in Russia since 2010 without cooperation with Ukraine.
        Answering a question from a Ukrainian correspondent about the prospects of attracting Motor Sich to the production of VK-2500 engines in Russia since 2010, the head of the Chernyshev MMP replied: “The Russian government has made a decision to organize serial production of this engine in the country. We will implement it. The engines will be produced by us without involving foreign firms, although we do not exclude cooperation with Ukrainian engine builders under other programs. "
        VK-2500 engines will power Russian helicopters of the Mi-17 type, produced for both Russian customers and for export and supplied through the Russian Helicopters company, which is part of the Oboronprom corporation.
        The decision to completely transfer the serial production of the VK-2500 to Russia is related to Ukraine's intention to join NATO. At present, all engines for Russian helicopters are produced in Zaporozhye by the Motor-Sich enterprise. Approximately 80 percent All products of the Ukrainian enterprise are intended for equipping Russian aircraft.
        The Ministry of Defense intends to supply these engines to the Mi-28N and Ka-52 helicopters manufactured by its order. The VK-2500 engine is a modernized version of the TV3-117VMA engine, which is the base engine for all Russian attack and military transport helicopters of the Mi and Ka families.
        General Director of FSUE "Plant named after Klimov" Alexander Vatagin estimates the cost of organizing serial production of VK-2500 in Russia at $ 120-150 million.

    The original design is brilliant, and the final one is a masterpiece. Machines would learn to do this. In a helicopter, every detail is a masterpiece, with automobiles they are not compared, even if you take any from Merc, it will look like a home-made gun, and even airplanes make it easier. Once upon a time at MI-4 they admired the quality and beauty of manufacturing parts, it was a pity to let go. I remember trying to break the blade that worked out the resource with zilk 157, on a clean-up day I didn’t cram into the body, where there! She bent, then everyone became scared, someone ran away, the first one drove the driver, and the oval, conical, lobed henna pipe at least!
