Military Review

By the end of the year, helicopter builders will hand over to the military Mi-8AMTSH-VA for testing in the Arctic

The first Mi-8AMTSH-VA, intended for operation in the Arctic, will be handed over to the Russian military at the end of this year, reports TASS.




"Ulan-Ude aviation the plant (UAZ, part of the Russian Helicopters) is completing preparations for the first flight instance of the Mi-8AMTSH-VA helicopter, a source at the Dubai Airshow-2015 airshow told the agency. “The car will be handed over to the military before the end of the year for flight tests in order to confirm the declared characteristics.”

Earlier, the director of UUAZ, Leonid Belykh, announced the signing of a contract for the supply of these helicopters to the Ministry of Defense. However, he did not specify the number of machines ordered, nor the value of the contract.

According to the agency, the new helicopter will receive a more powerful power plant, and its cabin will be insulated using technologies used on spacecraft. Perhaps, ski cars will be installed on the cars.

        And at the same time, it will clearly identify its presence in this strategy
        region of the world. And the hunt of the uvsik mongrel (canada, dania, mustache and the like) of zaritsa at 4uzoye was repelled.

        P.S. That is not yours, will never be yours (America, Canada and the like)

      Almaz-Antey delivered the S-400 regimental set for the Central Military District to the RF Ministry of Defense ahead of schedule; another set will be delivered by the end of the year. The next regimental set of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system, which entered service with the Central Military District (CVO), will take up combat duty in Western Siberia. You see, the Arctic coast will be covered

    I remember in the 200th Separate Motorized Rifle Brigade they also said that "metals" were special for northern latitudes. There was no stove in principle ...

    Let's hope that the developers will remember not only about insulation, but also about the problem of radio communications in polar latitudes.

      According to the agency, the new helicopter will receive a more powerful power plant,
      The power plant is ours (if the new one is more powerful) I doubt that the dill made a new one and is being sold through Belarus. Due to their drinking in the country, there is no way to build a new engine.

        Mi-8AMTSh-VA is created on the basis of the latest modification of the military transport helicopter Mi-8AMTSH-V, which is distinguished by new Klimov VK-2500-03 gas turbine engines, a more powerful TA-14 auxiliary power unit and an updated avionics kit.

          So I was right in my guesses. It is good that our engines, not dill. hi

    Well, well, everything shows that the Arctic has been taken seriously. What belongs to Russia must be reliably protected.

      Since 1988, the Kulluk drilling ship has been located near Alaska in the Beaufort Sea. The company recognizes the danger of pack ice and notes: "No one really knows how to clean oil from floating ice masses and broken ice."
      In July 2012, Greenpeace activists blocked 53 Shell gas stations in Edinburgh and London, protesting the company's plans for drilling oil wells in the Arctic. The Greenpeace movement “Defend the Arctic” aims to prevent the drilling of oil wells and industrial fishing in the Arctic and to achieve recognition of the Arctic as a natural territory of international importance.

        I'm talking about oil and gas. In every Arctic project, foreign firms have a solid piece. By helicopters, who are you going to defend against? If you need a transport plane to transport people-goods. I don’t think that someone will land in order to recapture a pair of glaciers. All this is money down the drain. In Soviet times, too, rushed to the Arctic, now from that time there were half-abandoned-abandoned villages and piles of scrap metal.

    It would be better if our pair of tropical islands were squeezed out. So the hunt is to bask under a palm tree with a coconut, knowing that you are at home. And then all permafrost and permafrost. Although the news is still good.

    the cabin will be insulated using technologies used on spacecraft. Therefore, the silence about the price !!! Although for the development of the Akrtika, I think it's not worth sparing money, people are already uncomfortable.
