India explained why it made its choice in favor of Russian helicopters Ka-226T

86
The Indian edition defencenews.in writes about why the Indian Ministry of Defense preferred the Russian Ka-226T helicopters. The publication writes that these lightweight twin-engine rotary-wing machines can be effectively used for both civilian and military (police) purposes. In addition, the preference is given to Ka-226T due to the fact that they successfully perform tasks in high-altitude conditions. Ka-226T, according to estimates of the Indian side, proved to be excellent during the presentation flights in India.

India explained why it made its choice in favor of Russian helicopters Ka-226T


From the presentation material Ka-226T holding "Russian Helicopters". The Ka-226T multi-purpose helicopter is distinguished by exceptional hovering accuracy, maneuverability and controllability. It has a high power capacity, maximum safety, and unpretentious operation. The improved flight performance of the Ka-226T helicopter, environmental friendliness, economy, modern avionics complex and additional solutions in the field of flight safety make this helicopter one of the best in its class.

The Indian side will start purchasing Ka-226T, produced at the plant in Kumertau (Bashkiria), to replace the outdated fleet of Chetak helicopters.
In Russia, the Ka-226T is produced in several modifications: the passenger version (for 7 passengers), the transport version (including for the transportation of oversized cargo on an external platform), the medical one (medical evacuation and medical-intensive care), the police officer (military) and the search engine - rescue.
In India, the Ka-226T was demonstrated during the Aero India 2015 exhibition, which was held in Bangalore.

The general characteristics of the helicopter: maximum take-off weight - 3,8 t, maximum flight speed - 250 km / h, maximum flight range - 600 km, working height - 4,7 km, height ceiling - 5,7 km.

    And not only helicopters are produced in Russia. It is necessary to remind the Indians about other types of weapons.

      Well, I personally, would also make a choice in favor of this machine! good
      Especially I am impressed by its modular design.
      A dozen helicopters and dozens of modules, and tasks can be performed moderately-nemereno.

        The helicopter is beautiful, only the French engines on it do not bribe. The French will receive a firm contract for a minimum of 400 Turbomeca engines. Plus payment for their maintenance, repair and scheduled replacement.
        If the French declare an embargo on the supply of their engines, then there will be no deal. Isn’t this the reason why our piss require penalties for the mistral?

          Do not piss, Vasek. It is enough to conduct an analysis of financial flows. Simply put, to estimate all the possible nonsense and shoals from receiving fines, and compare them with the shoals and shoals of the execution of the Indian contract. If you don’t outweigh the Indian contract, then so be it, to hell with them, with fines. Truncated? hi

          Only here the French engines on it do not bribe

          The basic certified version of the KA-226 helicopter with Allison / Rolls-Royce engines.
          Well, now everything is clear.
          For marine vessels we do not do engines, times!
          For helicopter engines do not do two!
          We don’t do engines for cars, three!
          We don’t do four engines for airplanes!
          Something is really bad with us.

              Come on indignant then. You must be able to face the truth. Everywhere and everywhere, imported motors, even on motor-blocks that are made in Russia for gardeners, are entirely imported engines. We used to make dill motors - for ships 100% of them, for helicopters, for trucks, diesel, tractor, etc. etc.
              Now all the engines are bought from the custodians, Japs, Germans, even in the states. Our Frets go 100% with French engines, automatic gearboxes are also 100% imported, we even can’t make normal paint for cars.

        Yesterday Oleg Bochkarev, deputy chairman of the board of the Military-Industrial Commission (MIC), said that Russia had refused to purchase two Mistral-class helicopter carriers, and also promised an early visit to Moscow by French negotiators. According to Kommersant's information, the official’s words turned out to be a severe reprimand from Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin for him yesterday, since Russia did not officially refuse the ships, no one waited for the French in Moscow, and Mr. Bochkarev never participated in the Mistral negotiation process.

      Well done, they conclude technology transfer contracts! And the plant in Kumertau is being transferred from complete assembly to aggregate! And here you need to ask: for what! After all, this is torpedoing your production! Sabotage of pure water! Thousands of workers (highly skilled) will be left without work and a piece of bread! You need to think about it in the government!

        This is not only job cuts. This is the loss of a number of competencies. Based on strategic considerations and safety requirements, the enterprise should support full-cycle production. To do this, it is necessary to provide him with orders from the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Emergencies on Ka-27, -31, -32. And, of course, to solve the problem with domestic engines for light class helicopters. Of course, everyone understands this. But to understand a little. It is necessary to plant more actively those who do not solve the tasks. Plant for a long time and with confiscation. Otherwise, there will be no progress and the matter will be limited to one talker. Only decisive repressions (or rather, a combination of a non-illusory carrot with a no less real gingerbread), coupled with the nationalization of strategic industries, will save the Russian military-industrial complex.

And then in other media there is information that the plant in Kumertau will stop assembling helicopters altogether, and will only be engaged in the production of components. Somehow it looks bad.

    It's good that our lightweight turntables are on sale. The problem with engines for this class of helicopters has not been solved since the days of the Klimovsky "GTE 350" and the English "TVLD Rolls-Royce Allison 250-С20R / 2" or the French "TVLD Turbomeca Arrius 2G" - a direct result of the skew in the military-industrial complex of the USSR, when doing "little things "the generals of industry were" uninterested ".

    The article is written quite strange, and the news is old:
    As reported by the Indian newspaper The Pioneer, on May 13, 2015, the Defense Acquisition Council (DAC) of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Government of India, chaired by the country's Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar, approved a large procurement package for the benefit of the Indian Armed Forces totaling more than 20 thousand crores rupees (about 3,2 billion dollars).

    The most sensational news regarding this package is the decision to approve the purchase of 197 Ka-200T Russian light helicopters for the Indian Army Aviation and the Indian Navy (the message cites the number "226"). Some of the helicopters will be delivered directly from Russia, while others will be assembled in India. The purchase price is "to be discussed."

    Because not everywhere the government is aimed at serving the interests of oligarchic elites.
    Sometimes she begins, having before her eyes the experience of strategic opponents in the person of China and strategic losers in the person you yourself know who to draw the right conclusions.
    To steal and copy like China is not an option, in this case, when it comes to manufacturing a high-tech product.
    Take a ready-made import product for the defense industry - ha, ha, there are no stinkers.
    Here everything is ready - the product, the documentation, the technology and production. On ready-made, the Indians will quickly prepare their research and production base and technologies. Remember for yourself how much time it takes yourself - from scratch - to write a term paper, say. And how much the process accelerates when the entire "battlefield" lies before your eyes in the form of a "fish" from the previous stream.
