A new export military helicopter will be created in Japan

24
The press service of the Ministry of Defense of Japan reported that the authorities signed a contract with the Japanese company Fuji Heavy Industries and the American Textron Inc's Bell Helicopters, which provides for the development of a military helicopter for the needs of the military and for export abroad, writes "Russian newspaper".

A new export military helicopter will be created in Japan


It is noted that the new machines, codenamed UH-X, will be a replacement for the fairly outdated American Bell IH-1 "Iroquois" helicopters. It is planned that they will begin to arrive in the troops with 2021 year.

Kawasaki Heavy Industries, with the support of AgustaWestland and the Airbus Group, also fought for participation in the new helicopter project.

It is worth noting that joint work on military vehicles for export became possible in Japan since 2014, after the lifting of the ban on the sale of arms abroad, which has been in effect for many years.

According to representatives of the Japanese defense ministry, thanks to exports, it will be possible to significantly reduce the costs of local enterprises by increasing the number of products manufactured. Military experts say that this will give impetus to active domestic research in the military field.

          The paradox is that they were not very afraid.
          When they had to be afraid, they did not know his performance characteristics (they captured the first flight Zero only in July 1942). And when they found out the real performance characteristics, they already had "Hellkets" in the series, and Tech had already proposed and tested his "scissors" at Midway.

          The Japanese, as always, have re-classified.

      To want is not harmful, it is harmful not to want. smile You will not find anything funny there, unless the next hybrid is the F-16 with the Su-27, and it's not a fact that it is lethal.

      And why look at him, he has long been made ...

      Apart from the initial surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in the early morning in December 7 1941 years, perhaps the biggest shock to the American forces in the Pacific have become outstanding performance characteristics of the main carrier-based fighter of the Imperial Japanese Navy - aircraft A6M2 "Zero-Seine» (Zero- Sen) of "Mitsubishi» (Mitsubishi), has excellent proportions. He was quick and agile, armed with two 20-mm cannon and two machine gun 7,7 mm and has an incredible range of flight in 3088 km using discharged ventral fuel tank.

          At one time, this picture went around all the magazines, but now there is no certainty that the aircraft will look like this, there are too many passes in development.

      I am skeptical about this idea!
      Few people design new helicopters. All the military is a modernization of Cold War technology.

      What is the meaning of the new - it's not a fighter. His flying qualities will not fundamentally change. And the rest of the functions will add an upgrade to electronics. But the price will be, and even the Japanese-American price of UUUUU wassat

      Do do! In Japan, Kawasaki, Fuji and Mitsubishi took the lead in national helicopter manufacturing. For example, your development: MBB / Kawasaki BK 117, Kawasaki OH-1 Ninja, Mitsubishi MH2000. And also there are a lot of licensed cars of famous companies - Eurocopter, Bell, Sikorsky, etc.
      Such a miracle will soon come out - a single-seat electric helicopter from Hirobo. The car was presented at the International Aerospace Exhibition in Nagoya, where the helicopter model aroused great interest among the public.
      Kotaro Matsuzaka, head of the Hirobo helicopter company, said: “This is an absolutely Japanese development, priced at 10 billion yen (US $ 125 million), and is scheduled for completion by 2021.” The main reason for the delay in production is not the technical, but the legal side of the issue, the company expects that it will take 2-4 years to solve all legal problems associated with the use of mini helicopters in Japan. However, Matsuzaki’s president is very optimistic and enthusiastically announced plans to develop a two-seat helicopter of this type in the near future.
      The helicopter will be produced in two versions, an unmanned type, costing 10 yen (000 US $) and a single model for 000 yen (125 US $).

    Our KB should take a closer look at the helicopter market. Our helicopters, in my opinion, are the best in the world, but in some segments of this market we are underrepresented. It is necessary to fully build the entire line of helicopter technology from ultralight passenger helicopters to super heavy. Any customer should know - no matter what kind of helicopter he needs - in the Russian Federation he will be sold or built.

      I would not be ironic at all about the Japanese ability to produce this or that technique. Looking at the level of production in the country and in general their hard work, we can safely say: They can! And a helicopter, and a plane, and a heavy bomber, and an aircraft carrier, and a ballistic missile, if desired.

    And we don’t have cars of this class, although if we put an armament system on Ansat, it will turn out to be a light, relatively cheap helicopter for landing and covering reconnaissance groups.

    Is a light military helicopter not armored, without serious weapons? To be able to fill it up from "Kalash"? Something is not very clear what a miracle is for. A reconnaissance drone - I understand, a combat helicopter - I understand, a light military one - I don't. Upgrade one of the civilians. Why develop it?
    Probably, Japan also loves the budget.

      They have already done combat, having sent the USA with Apache to the pizza. The Yaposhi are trying to break out of the US by developing their own technology. Group. "----- Just look with whom they were going to cooperate - this is a direct spit on the Yankes, to which they actually received a very specific answer who actually occupies them after the atomic bombing - ,,, that the country's authorities signed a contract with the Japanese company Fuji Heavy Industries and American Textron Inc's Bell Helicopters, "---- and who's the boss.
