Russia is reviving the "submarine killer"

44
Andrei Shibitov, Deputy General Director of the Russian Helicopters aircraft manufacturing company, spoke about the holding’s plans to resume production of anti-submarine Mi-14 helicopters, called “submarine killers”.




“From the beginning of 2016, we are ready to carry out development work on the renewal at the new technological level of the Mi-14 type machine. An engineering note has been prepared for the Ministry of Defense, in which the appearance of the car will be presented, and our approaches to the implementation of this project, ”he quotes Rossiiskaya Gazeta.

Shibitov noted that currently two options for implementing the program are being considered - a local upgrade of the existing machine and a significant update of the Mi-14, which turns it into a conceptually new machine. In particular, it is planned to install new avionics, blades and Russian VK-2500 engines, working in tandem with auxiliary power units of the TA-14 type.

Re-launching the production of amphibians Mi-14 is dictated by the needs of the Russian Ministry of Defense. In addition, there are other customers who need amphibious helicopters to organize the rescue of people on the water and work in the conditions of the Far North.

It is worth recalling that the Kazan Helicopter Plant was involved in the production of the Mi-14 from 1973 to 1986. This amphibious helicopter has an airtight bottom, floats for better stability, a hydroacoustic station to search for submarines, a set of weapons for their destruction, including the 8F59 nuclear depth bomb, which is guaranteed to destroy any submarine within a kilometer radius.

Production of these machines was stopped under US pressure after the Mi-14 destroyed a NATO submarine in Soviet territorial waters. "Killers of submarines" were removed from service, but it seems that in the near future, these helicopters will return to service in an updated form.

            after the Mi-14 destroyed in the Soviet territorial waters of NATO submarine

            in fact, unfortunately, not destroyed. But found in our territorial waters and cornered, it remains only to be guaranteed to destroy, but the leadership did not have enough balls.

      Rather, it would be to say that the RF Ministry of Defense instructed the holding to consider the possibility of resuming production and implement it ...

      After all, everyone understands that without a customer, things would not budge.

      And another interesting fact, a great interest in the civilian version of the helicopter was shown by Gazprom, which needs amphibious helicopters for operation on offshore platforms ...

        We need a new anti-submarine aircraft based on the Tu-204SM. Helicopters far from the coast cannot carry out anti-submarine activities without a base ship.

      This was not there, there was a persecution of the American nuclear submarines by the Mi-14 crews in our territorial waters for more than a day and preventive bombing, there was an order for destruction and its subsequent cancellation, the boat left.

    In principle, the Mi-14 differs from the Ka-27Pl in its greater range and greater carrying capacity. The presence of balonettes is now a moot point. Both have both GAS. Torpedoes, bombs, buoys, they both carry. There are no giant differences. Kamovsky is more resistant to wind by sector. Something like this.

    there will be a right decision if the Mi-14 is reborn. In Kazan, there will be a holiday! He was made at the Kazan helicopter. Most likely, the staff is still working, who was involved in this machine.
    Considering that this helicopter can be used in at least three versions - anti-submarine, rescue and as a minesweeper - it has potential both in Russia and for export. All of Southeast Asia, most likely, will not mind getting hold of such cars.
    It is only important that they would not just restore production, but, using basic developments, would make a qualitatively new product.

      In 1970-72 YEARS, this machine had to be serviced in Feodosia; however, at the moment, all the electronics are old, and even this whole element base cannot be assembled

    Well, if the Americans demanded to stop production, then this is worth a lot. So it is NECESSARY to revive!

    From the beginning of 2016, we are ready to conduct development work on the renewal of a Mi-14 type machine at a new technological level

    they've been hiding this topic for half a year and so far the OCD has not begun. It wasn’t what happened with the destruction of the American submarine. Mi-14 found the submarine and took it on the sight. The Americans were notified that if they did not dump out of our coastal waters there would be fire to destroy. The United States managed to dump before the ultimatum from our waters expired, but on the Mi-14 they sharpened a tooth.

    To have such long sea borders and not have an amphibious helicopter is the height of shortsightedness. This can also be attributed to piece aircraft of the Be 200 series. Which are very successfully operated by the Ministry of Emergencies. smile

    We had a lot of them when I served in 1988 in the SA in Riga, but then they were modestly called "search and rescue". The camouflage color is navy on top and a light blue belly. Someone did not know that he was a submarine hunter.
