"Alligators" "flood" the world sky

"Alligators" "flood" the world sky



The Russian media reported that to the 75 anniversary of the Primorsky plant Progress, this enterprise was given a unique gift in the form of a large order for the production of Ka-52 helicopters, which have another name, Alligator, in the amount of 140 pieces. Today, there are just 12 units in the world. As the director of the World Trade Analysis Center reported earlier weapons (TSAMTO) Igor Korotchenko, the Ministry of Defense plans to purchase some 9 (!) Copies of the latest helicopter technology over the next 10-1000 years. Such a contract can be considered the largest for the whole history modern Russia.

The management of the Progress plant, located in the city of Arsenyev and belonging to the association Helicopters of Russia, believes that this promising work will have a very positive effect on the development of not only the plant itself, but also the economic potential of the whole of Primorye. Today, the situation at the enterprise is still far from ideal due to the instability of orders. However, the new contract will allow not only to return to the workplaces of many specialists who were forced to go on unpaid leave, but also to increase the number of full-time units of designers, assemblers and technical staff. Representatives of AAK Progress declare that the production base of the enterprise allows implementing such a large project. By the way, it should be noted that new helicopters will be produced not only for the needs of the domestic defense industry, but also for foreign armies. So, for the same 9-10 years, it is planned to deliver about 1150 screw machines of a new generation abroad.

Why is it that not only the Russian, but also other armies of the world are interested in purchasing such helicopters as the Alligator? There are several reasons for this. First, domestic development has undergone a significant upgrade compared with the previous version of the Ka-50 helicopter. Now on board the Ka-52 installed the latest means of navigation and targeting shells and missiles at the target. The helicopter can be controlled by two pilots thanks to a duplicated vehicle guidance system. The helicopter can strike at armored vehicles and enemy personnel on the ground with air-to-surface weapons. In addition, the "Alligator" can perfectly cope with the task of destroying low-speed air targets using the air-to-air complex. The Ka-52 is equipped with an integrative communications system, which allows crews of several helicopters to conduct coordinated actions to detect and destroy the enemy. The helicopter body is made of composite materials, which will give the Ka-52 structure durability.

Ka-52 replaced the previous modification of the helicopter series "Kamov" - "Black Shark". Despite the large list of advantages of the Alligator, most of which relate to the crew informatization system and the use of digital means of operation, this helicopter still has its drawbacks. The developers say that they are going to find a constructive solution in order to raise the statistical and dynamic “ceilings” that “fell” after weighting the car to 10,4 tons. In addition, engineers will have to solve the problem of improving flight performance, which also decreased compared to the Ka-50 version. However, representatives of the Progress plant do not consider these flaws fatal and are ready to eliminate them as soon as possible.

The combat helicopter went through a full cycle of State tests, on the basis of which the vehicle was given an extremely positive assessment. According to the pilots who participated in the “run-in” of the “Alligator”, the helicopter perfectly obeys the commands. Moreover, his Whirlwind long-range guns, Hermes-A all-weather ATGM and Chrysanthemum multi-purpose complexes make the car really frightening for any armored complexes on the ground.

In addition to the Ka-52, other helicopters should also come to the troops: these are heavy Mi-26Ts, training Ansat helicopters and combat Mi-28s. Do not forget to purchasers and reliable "osmushki" - transport Mi-8.

Let's hope that the contract for the supply of "Alligators" in the Russian Air Force will be implemented in full.

      I will add - just for fun - as many people know, the marine versions of the Ka 52 will be based on all 4 Mistrals.

      At the same time, I was pleasantly surprised to read that the anti-ship version of the Ka 52 was also planned. These are Uran anti-ship missiles with a range of up to 260 km for new modifications and anti-radar missiles with a range of up to 150 km

      That is, the Mistral will have a "long arm" beating more than 500 km and giving them the advantage of a mini-aircraft carrier over conventional enemy ships
      Much has been said about the need to cover the Mistral with frigates, etc. - but apparently the Mistral himself with such equipment will be able to strike at the enemy’s fleet without entering the Harpunov’s defeat zone.

        Cover frigates are needed primarily not for attacks on enemy ships, but for the Mistral air defense.

    I still hope and remain .... honestly ..... It would be nice ... in 10 years 1000 helicopters ... Although it’s still not enough ... more helicopters would be needed in the army .... pleased ...... And then with the planes in general a pipe .... an hour on a teaspoon of produce .... shout only about plans .... for 5 years already a lot of scream ... but in fact .... .. "... in 2011, the Russian Ministry of Defense will receive at least 28 aircraft from industry (two Su-35S, six Su-34, eight Su-27SM3, eight Yak-130, one Tu-214ON, two Tu-154M, one An-140-100) "Source - Independent Military Review

    dimarm74, I agree. It’s useless to produce this piece by piece. In the conflict with Georgia, our Air Force lost two or three attack aircraft as far as I know sad

    in 2010, the Russian aviation industry delivered 21 aircraft to the Ministry of Defense of Russia (four Su-34s, four Su-30M2, four Su-27SM3, three MiG-29SMT, four Yak-130, one Il-62M and one Tu-154M ) and 57 helicopters (15 Mi-28N, four Ka-52, four Ansat-U and 34 series Mi-8). In all cases, only production cars were taken into account, without prototyping. Source: Independent Military Review

    Also, the Tu-22MR scout lost from Georgian air defense
    so for now the pace of production is such .... though the UAC leadership swears that we will do more, but it is doubtful .... all the forces seem to be casting civilian liners into production ...

    In the USSR, up to 370 helicopters were produced per year, one per day. Now 100 per year is a good figure, but something tells us that, as always, they will be 40-50 percent behind.

    So in the USSR, evil Bolsheviks (who did not think about the people, as it turns out) produced near ..., medium ... and long-range passenger liners such as Yak-42, Tu-134, Tu-154, Il-86, etc. more than 300s a year ... not counting any small things like An-2 ... and transport and special aviation .... And in 2010, 9 (Nine!) civilian liners were commissioned ..... PPC ... .In 2011, it will not seem like much more ....
    For that, the mansions on the Cote d'Azur grow and breathe ..... where the elite does not stiffen current ...............

    You don’t have to applaud, let alone standing. There is no one to do the machines, so the production results will not change either quantitatively or qualitatively. Those Petrovichs and Mikhalichs who knocked on the head of the youth for an unscrewed bolt have long been retired, and the youngsters who still remained in the factories and who stopped banging on the top of his head, flees amid low salaries. In fact, there were losers in the factories who hold on to a small number of enthusiasts.

    Again, there is no system. Here brigades have been cut in our hands, apparently we are only going to fight with the "partisans".
    And for comparison, here is the light (in jest, I want to say easy, but the language does not rise) infantry division of the US Army,
    Fire Support Helicopters 29
    General Purpose Helicopters 36
    Reconnaissance helicopters 31
    EW helicopters 3
    Total 99
    We have 45 tank and motorized rifle brigades, we divide 3 brigades into a division for a total of 15 divisions or 1485 helicopters. And in 10 years, we will buy 1000 helicopters for all of them, both the army and the air force and navy and generals, but this is not enough. But there are no reconnaissance helicopters yet at all.

    kagorta is right .... not enough .... amers fly to the toilet by helicopter ... that's for sure. But after all, those turntables that now seem to be not going to be written off en masse ..... So maybe a couple of thousand aircraft will be in the army by 2020 ..... Although of course I hardly believe ..... there are almost no light helicopters we have.

      I am not aching and will be very pleased if there are a thousand helicopters in 10 years (feasible by the way without stress). I'm talking about something else, about the lack of a systematic approach. Tell me what kind of EW helicopter we have (although there are some, but the old ones in Abkhazia against rodents (not to be confused with Georgians) used an excellent result, in Ossetia they did not use it - the result is known (the number of lost planes)), and even better what kind of reconnaissance helicopter, like amerskoy Kayova. And the main thing in my message is that all these helicopters in America are subordinate to the infantry general and all officers of this division and helicopter pilots drink in the same bar, the children go to the same school, and the women in the laundry know everything about each other and if they know each other the war doesn’t come after John Smith, she will first scratch his wife’s eyes, and then John.

    Yes .... with helicopters, a better situation, it is really possible without stress, to hand over a hundred a year. But we must take into account that more export orders fell on helicopters, which also can not but rejoice, but they are usually a priority, because they are afraid of their image. Because fears that everything will go into our army belatedly.
    And that it is necessary to include helicopter units in the state of land brigades, so everyone has long understood this. By the way, I can’t honestly understand why this does not happen? Everyone understands ... everyone knows ... but no decision is made.
    Can someone in the subject explain why this happens?

    Guys, do not be so naive and do not rush to applaud! While Putin-Medvedev is in power, and the Moscow Region is headed by their accomplice Serdyukov, all beautiful plans are worthless. Their sole purpose is to create the illusion of positive change.

    In reality, this is what they say here zczczc, dimarm74, krymskij, LEKHA pancake, almost demobilization.

    In reality, these are annual breakdowns of the State Defense Order, these are cuts of trillion amounts allocated to the defense industry. Allocated not in order to raise this defense, but to withdraw this money and put it in your pocket. Otherwise, for what kind of such a thick dowel was Serdyukov, the "talented commander" and the "great military commander", who became famous for fraud in St. Petersburg, appointed as a watcher?

    All the information that is now being leaked to the media should probably be viewed through the “prism” of the upcoming elections. In our region (Karelia), all enterprises of the “defense industry” “from small to large” have collapsed, not by washing, so by skating. People have gone where. Where will they get so many specialists? Note that when the load on the space industry increased, when the parent enterprises, where life was still somehow warm, ceased to cope with the growing volumes, they began to connect the former specialized enterprises, where there was a production break. How many failed launches with billions on board? It seems to be three in the last nine months.

    Not ... well, in 2010, 57 helicopters were actually handed over anyway .. For 2011 there is every reason to believe that there will be no less, maybe 15 percent or more, so it’s not bad ..... It’s clear that a little but the pace of production is still growing. And it pleases that the Mi-26T Rosvertol begins to produce.
    The Ulanudinsky factory also quickly began to produce Mi-8 in large quantities.
    So not everything is so bad.

    When I hear our president talking frankly nonsense live or crooked, I feel sorry for this cephalopod mollusk! In our situation, only absolutely incompetent people can call such figures on state defense orders. Such tasks would be quite serious for the Soviet military-industrial complex, albeit feasible. After 20 years of intensive collapse and plunder of the industry, significant wear and tear of the machinery, loss of skill of workers in many specialties, including enterprises in the military-industrial complex; the loss of a whole series of modern technologies - talking about the production of thousands of aircraft, helicopters, tanks, and other military equipment is simply fanforon! Refresh 80% of the worn-out machine stock in Russia, raise prof. level of grassroots and technological links in production, restore the lost and organize promising technological cycles - then the state defense order will not be interrupted! Otherwise, the time-tested Unions cannot be launched into space due to accidents.

    Yeah .... it wouldn’t hurt to upgrade the equipment first, but it’s half the battle .... The staff was lost .... you won’t hire Tajiks. What is needed here is that workers, that engineers and engineers are of the highest qualification, but they will not grow on trees, they need at least 5 years of training, and they must also be trained in production.

    As I understand it, most of the helicopters are going to be exported, and not to their hungry troops.

    Slipfar we carefully read:
    "... The Ministry of Defense plans to purchase in the next 9-10 years about 1000 (!) More copies of the latest helicopter technology. Such a contract can be considered the largest in the history of modern Russia ...."
    In my opinion, there is a conversation about our army.
    Of course, no one has canceled export contracts, it seems like a 50 to 50 ratio this will be until 2020.
    In general, Russian Helicopters handed over 2007 - 102 aircraft, 2008 - 163 aircraft, 2009 - 183, 2010 - 215. So there is growth .. in 2011, 260 cars are planned to be delivered somewhere. So everything is real ..... of course, if desired.
