The second IL-38H has been upgraded

JSC "Aviation complex to them. Ilyushin "completed the repair and improvement of the second anti-submarine aircraft Il-38N Naval Aviation of the Russian Navy, the blog reports bmpd.

The works are carried out within the framework of the contract from 2012, providing for the serial modernization of 5-ti machines, which includes the installation of the new search and sighting system "Novela-P-38".

The second repaired aircraft with a tail number "27 yellow" (RF-75320) was named "Yakov Kutepov" (in honor of the designer Ilyushin Design Bureau) and is being tested in Zhukovsky near Moscow. The machine was built in 1970, before it was part of the aviation of the Pacific Fleet.

“A three-year contract worth 3,45 billion rubles for serial modernization of the IL-38H variant of five IL-38 aircraft was concluded by the Russian Ministry of Defense with Aviation Complex named after S. Ilyushin 25 in May 2012 of the year. The direct work on them is carried out by JSC "20 th Aviation Repair Plant" in Pushkin near St. Petersburg (repair) and Moscow JSC "Experimental Machine-Building Plant named after VM Myasishchev" on the basis of Zhukovsky (installation of PPS "Novela-P-38 “produced by OJSC“ Leninets ”),” the blogger reports.

The first modernized aircraft under the specified contract was Il-38H under the number "19 yellow" "Radiy Papkovsky." Now he is part of the "859-th Center for combat use and training of the flight personnel of Naval Aviation of the Russian Navy in Eisk."

In March of this year, Viktor Livanov, general director of the Aviation Complex, stated that “for the Ministry of Defense of Russia, up to 2020, it is planned to upgrade 28 Il-38 aircraft according to the Il-38Н variant”.

      Modernization is good, but we need a new anti-submarine aircraft, you need to revive the a-40 project or create it on the basis of the tu-204.

        Antisubmarine patrol is better than a turboprop, because the reactant in those flight modes in which the antisubmarine operates does not feel better.

        And in the world, the same Poseidon has collected all 15 pieces so far, based on 737, which, by the way, goes very well in those modes that are important for a patrol officer.

    The first modernized Il-38 - "Onboard 15 yellow"

    Tu 142 flew off their own under socialism ... they fly since 1968, Vicki says there are 27 left ... but how many take off? Half or less. By the way, there was a variant of the Tu-204P - anti-submarine. Funding for the program has been discontinued. It turns out that 6 pieces have nowhere to go ..... 6 Tu-204s were decommissioned in 2012 (along with the A330), since the new owner of the company - Aeroflot - plans to make Vladavia a regional carrier, so the need for long-haul aircraft will disappear. So pick them up and convert them to PLO and 3 to Pacific Fleet and Northern Fleet in a year! In addition, there are 16 more of them in "storage" in various airlines! Then you don't need to build for 8-9 years, take them and all the cases, you will get only 22 PLO aircraft. And something like that will turn out ...

          We have such an organization - UAC. Here, all questions on aircraft construction - to her! The Americans, on the basis of the B-737, make anti-submarines - everything is fine, and the UAS immediately begins - it is outdated (this applies to absolutely all aircraft), low directional stability, high speed, etc. Why are Americans doing, and we have EVERYTHING BAD?

      And to be honest, sorry for the Tu-204. A good and promising glider. To put a good avionics in a good way ... And we would not need any Airbases. So no ... They fly on an import, and then break off on sanctions (like Aeroflot). Well, at least our military flies. Native.

And what will happen in the year 20!, No one knows, and whether there will be an acceptance, too !. Where is the acceptance schedule, stop shouting URA for receiving 1 aircraft per year, it's time to ask for it, or shout KARAUL-ROBBER. soldier

After all, under the USSR, 12 cars a year were produced, and the machines are more simplified in production, but even if the plan is cut in half, it is not a bad pace! They killed the Albatross project, but the car is unique in its characteristics, which has no analogues and that nobody cares about it. NO !!! This is Russia, but I am glad that it is, so what happened before is simply not permissible! I hope for the further development of our military-industrial complex !!!!

People are shocked ... Who helped us ...

      The worst thing when developing a new technology is to lose succession in development (to break the connection of generations). The new generation knows computers well, but has discrete thinking. The old generation of designers has their own experience and previous generations, has an analytical mind, but, as a rule, is not able to properly master a PC. The new generation seeks to succeed at all costs, seeks to quickly remove the elderly. Therefore, the elderly do not seek to pass on their experience and knowledge to the young.
      The country is rapidly losing its design intelligence.
      In St. Petersburg on Electric Power, they decided to break the vicious circle and introduced the institute of consultants from experienced old cadres.
      The country will lose aviation if this is not done in the aircraft industry. Especially in the production of aircraft engines.

    Good news. And those who are dissatisfied with small quantities would like to remind you that news about new / modernized aircraft of different classes pop up almost every week. And if you calculate the total, the Air Force receive more than a hundred aircraft per year. This is more than enough. We do not need a fleet of tens of thousands of cars - it is too expensive and just too much.

    I don’t want to upset you, dear ones, but your euphoria is premature. Glider IL-38 is already approaching fifty dollars. Fortunately, in the north, cold gliders were preserved in excellent condition, but the Far East has problems. This Novel is 15 years old. IL-38 is a wonderful car. Breadwinner, worked for 27 years on it, but a fundamentally new airframe and complex are needed. Unfortunately, I do not know anything new in this direction. In 1983 he came as a lieutenant in the regiment. the old people told me you are lucky young people in five years will learn new technology - A-40, so what? Already quit. And flew off to the IL-38. And the Tu-204 has a huge drawback - the engines are very low. With that state of military airfields, pebbles catch the engine once to spit. By the way, about the Il-114, there was such a Be-12 aircraft, for the near anti-submarine zone, since it is younger than the Il-38, but for some reason it was removed from service. For the Baltic, that was it. Now the Baltic Fleet is left without anti-submarine aircraft. As the exercises, the IL-38 from the North is called for help. Strategists damn it. I will not talk about sad anymore. I am glad that my fellow soldiers gradually began to develop a new complex. In a couple of years, let's see what he is capable of.

    They give proper names to the strategists - of course, they are for the record.
    Antisubmarine men are too fucking necessary, too, but if the news about the "already second" modernized, and even named, roll out as a great and great victory of the military-industrial complex ?! This should be quite an ordinary event, and quite common, and even familiar. What is there to applaud? Rather, on the contrary, to catch and kick ass those with whose help normal modernization is presented as a great achievement, which required a lot of money and effort. Efforts - yes, only to take money away from the state.
