Russian Defense Ministry receives the first Terminator helicopter built by Ulan-Ude aviation factory for Arctic conditions, reports MIC with reference to the press service of the holding "Russian Helicopters".




“Obtained during the development, production and testing of the Mi-8AMTSH-VA scientific and technical reserve for operating the machine in the Far North is planned to be used to create a civilian version of the Arctic helicopter. This version of the helicopter is needed both by the constituent entities of the Russian Federation for the creation of transport infrastructure in the northern regions, and by the oil and gas sector companies to provide offshore projects, ”the press service of the BP general director Alexander Mikheyev quotes.

“Currently, other Russian security agencies are showing interest in this type of helicopter, in addition to the Ministry of Defense,” the company noted.

The helicopter can be operated at temperatures below –40 Сº, its range (with additional tanks) is more than 1,3 thousand km.

According to the report, "Mi-8AMTSH-VA is equipped with VK-2500-03 engines and enhanced transmission, the increased power capacity of the auxiliary power unit TA-14 provides autonomous power to energy-intensive consumer products."

“To increase the piloting efficiency and navigation accuracy of the helicopter in conditions of low-orientation terrain and arctic polar night allows digital autopilot and several navigation systems, in particular, duplicated satellite, as well as digital navigation system with built-in map generator and inertial strapdown system to determine the current coordinates of the helicopter location without satellite signals, ”the release says.

According to the press service, the machine is equipped with an “air surveillance system for monitoring in low visibility conditions for the location of other aircraft and a search finder for searching people and equipment in distress”

The helicopter is adapted for using night-vision goggles, there are instruments for heating water and food on board.

Delivery of the Mi-8AMTSH-VA in the framework of a long-term contract with the Ministry of Defense (up to 2020 g) will be continued in 2016.

      Ambiguous news. Put additional tanks on the "old" Mi-8 - there will be the same range. At the expense of operating at below -40 - in 2010, they flew on the Yamal on Mi-8, off-board was -46, I was sitting in the cabin in an unbuttoned jacket.
      That’s what the new engine was installed and navigation is a big plus.

    scientific and technical groundwork for the operation of the machine in the Far North is planned to be used to create a civilian version of the Arctic helicopter.

    I think this is an important indicator of a helicopter. In this case, the cost of both the civilian and military versions should be reduced, and this is in all cases good for us, because the Arctic is needed by everyone, both civilian and military.

    Here is such an advanced one. Klimovsky engines (hi to MotorSich), our avionics. In the North, such a helicopter is life. Often in the most literal sense. Pleased.

      Click on the picture in the article, on the right side (along the flight) at the level of the cargo compartment floor, the inlet hole of the KO-50 (kerosene heater) is visible, so that a potbelly stove is not needed.

    According to recent reports, a helicopter that drove shift workers to the Krasny Selkop oil production station fell to Yenisei 10 kilometers from the city of Igarka shortly after takeoff.

    In the fall, according to the transport prosecutor's office, at least 12 people were killed. In total, there were three crew members and 22 passengers on board. Survivors reported that the entire crew of the car was killed.

    A helicopter lies on its side on the ice of a river in an inaccessible area. Surviving passengers are evacuated by snowmobile.

    The Yenisei Transport Prosecutor’s Office began a helicopter crash check. According to preliminary data, part of the on-board systems failed in flight at the Mi-8. In addition, the version of the crew error under difficult weather conditions is considered.

    Out of place but I sympathize (((

    for me it’s a bad habit to take names like "Terminator", we have a lot of our names, and this is some kind of plagiarism ..
