New Mi-8 equipped with fully Russian equipment


"Helicopters of Russia" are ready to put the Mi-8AMTSH-In parts of the Russian Air Force. The Mi-8AMTSH-V is the latest modification of the Mi-8AMTSH helicopter (export name is the Mi-171Sh), the model is made taking into account the course for import substitution.

In the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant, as part of the execution of the state defense order, new Mi-8AMTSH-B are waiting for shipment to the military units of the Russian Air Force. In order to reduce dependence on foreign suppliers, the new Mi models are equipped with modern Russian-made equipment.

One of the main areas of modernization was the replacement of the auxiliary power unit AI-9 В of Ukrainian production with the Russian model TA-14 produced by NPP "Aerosila". TA-14 has a higher power plant capacity, increased generator time, as well as better launch altitude performance (6 000 m versus 4 000 m in AI-9В). Thus, the capabilities of the helicopter during operation in high-mountainous areas and autonomous basing increased significantly.

The helicopter is equipped with more powerful VK-2500-03 engines manufactured by Klimov (part of the United Engine Corporation). VK-2500-03 engines are notable for improved performance, which makes it possible to markedly increase the reliability and safety of combat use and the overall performance of the helicopter. In addition, the increased resource of Russian engines will favorably affect the cost of operating helicopters.

For the convenience of the crew and helicopter flight safety, a new Russian weather radar has been installed with the function of displaying three-dimensional images of meteorological formations and objects. Information from the weather radar and navigation equipment, which increases the ease of piloting and ensures flight safety, is displayed on a large digital multifunction display.

To increase combat survivability, the helicopter is equipped with Russian-made ceramic-metal armor, which has higher durability and lower weight than steel armor.
Modern domestic flight-navigation and radio communication equipment, protection systems and weapons, as well as a wide range of additional equipment will allow the new military transport helicopter Mi-8AMTSH-B to meet all the requirements.

The Russian-made BMS satellite navigation system installed on the helicopter can work both with the domestic GLONASS system and with foreign GPS. A modern complex of communications equipment also made in Russia is provided by the helicopter crew with high-quality communications in a wide frequency range.

“We understand the importance of maximum independence from foreign components and assemblies for the equipment supplied in the framework of the state defense order, and we are working purposefully in this direction,” said Alexander Mikheev, general director of the holding company “Helicopters of Russia”. “Moreover, the results of this work, using the example of the Mi-8AMTSH-B, indicate that the use of Russian equipment in some cases allows us to achieve significant improvements in the characteristics of the helicopter.”

      I then do not understand why it could not be done before, that the outskirts were supported? Or was there not enough power?

      A little off topic, but about their engines. However, we do not stand still.
      "Military Parity." The manufacturer of Russian military aircraft engines, the Kuznetsov company (Samara), announced the completion of bench tests of a new engine for the next generation of strategic bombers, Flightglobal reports on November 7.
      The first flight of the new PAK DA bomber (a promising long-range aviation complex) is scheduled for 2019. In 2009, KB them. Tupolev was chosen as the lead developer of the aircraft.
      In June, Russian state media reported that Kuznetsov won a tender to create an engine for PAK DA. Previously, this plant supplied engines for bombers as part of the Tu-95, Tu-160 and Tu-22 programs.
      There are no details about the design and characteristics of the new engine. Judging by the photo published by Kuznetsov, it can be concluded that the proportions and dimensions of the power plant are not much different from the Pratt & Whitney F135 turbofan.
      Bench tests are used to verify the correctness of the results of scientific research and engineering, says company executive director Nikolai Yakushkin.

    that’s also its engines and not Uncle Sich’s

    we read the article carefully, but do not think about srach

    The helicopter is equipped with more powerful VK-2500-03 engines manufactured by Klimov (part of the United Engine Corporation). VK-2500-03 engines are notable for improved performance, which makes it possible to markedly increase the reliability and safety of combat use and the overall performance of the helicopter. In addition, the increased resource of Russian engines will favorably affect the cost of operating helicopters.

    something like
    Designed in 2001 year
    Power Class - 2500 HP
    It is installed on modifications of Mi-17, Ka-32 helicopters, as well as on the latest combat Mi-28, Ka-52, Mi-35 helicopters.
    VK-2500 engines as part of the power plant of the Mi-17-B5 helicopter were tested in the mountains of Tibet.
    Engine life can reach 9000 hours
    Ideal for replacing TV3-117 engines in an existing fleet of helicopters.

    For the first time I read about this machine in the Military Parade magazine for the 1999 year. 15 years have passed. I hope that at least some progress in production and commissioning has begun. And then the army aviation park has long been in need of updating hi

    "The results of this work on the example of the Mi-8AMTSh-V indicate that the use of Russian equipment in a number of cases makes it possible to achieve significant improvements in the characteristics of the helicopter" ...

    We can only say - it pleases, pleases, and again pleases the fact that helicopter builders were able to get away from dependence not only on Motor Sich, but also in other areas ...

    Funny as it may seem, I’d like to say: there are a lot of different sanctions of Russia, so that it would quickly restore its power and not depend on anyone and never ...

    As usual, the problems of the century for Russia: personnel, money and technology.

    All this is fine, but when will we see the replacement of the immortal "Eight" in the series?

      Well, like in everything else
      1. need a clear and clear TTZ
      2. And the most important and difficult thing now to do with designers is not to break through nuggets now

      so for now we will exploit the backlog of the union

        It is true that the design backlog of the "collapsed Union" is great and there are many unrealized technical ideas for the future, stored in the archives (I know this not by hearsay, since I worked as a designer at the Samara aerospace enterprise for more than 18 years) ... We need to get this "stash" and start it into business, because there is no hope for the current leaders, "effective" appointees-managers of the military-industrial complex enterprises, who have replaced real professionals with a creative, design "vein" in leading positions, but do not meet the main requirement of the ministry to make "money out of thin air", and not first-class technology ... This is especially true of old cadres, strenuously "expelled from their posts", regardless of experience, knowledge ... By the way, a number of Samara aerospace enterprises now even collect old cadres, for the young "do not pull" ...

    not bad. So the Chinese will completely suck Antonov’s KB and Ukraine will remain without any planes at all.

    Sometimes I want to express immense gratitude to the fraternal Ukrainian people for the Maidan. They forced the Russian elite to face the domestic manufacturer. In recent years, it seemed to me that this would not happen. Yes, and not for me alone. Most likely, this would continue until Maidan returned Crimea to us and placed the West in a position in which it would squeeze itself out of Russian markets. Once again: Ukrainian stupid anti-Russian brothers, THANKS!

    Import substitution and, in general - all your own is the right decision.
