New information about promising deck helicopter published

16
Russian aviation industry continues to create new technology for the armed forces. Earlier, officials announced the beginning of the development of a promising deck helicopter, which in the future will replace existing equipment of a similar class. The creation of this machine is engaged in the company "Kamov". Now some new information about a promising project was announced.


On December 1, the TASS news agency published data on a promising helicopter received from an unnamed source in the defense industry. According to the source, the new helicopter created by Kamov received the lamprey code. The brand designation has not yet been called. The new development will be another ship-based helicopter, created in the interests of fleet after shock Ka-52K. At the moment, according to the source, the project is in its early stages. Specialists of the development organization are working on the general features of the project, such as layout and various mechanisms.

The source of the TASS Agency did not mention the approximate characteristics of the helicopter under development. Probably due to the fact that the project is in its early stages, it is too early to speak about the exact characteristics of the helicopter. However, the source mentioned that the layout of the new helicopter will be traditional for Kamov vehicles. Apparently, we are talking about the use of coaxial rotors and some other spent ideas.


Ka-27 deck helicopter


With reference to another unnamed representative of the defense industry TASS writes that in terms of size and take-off mass promising helicopter "Lampa" will differ from the current Ka-27. The new car will be smaller and lighter. Such information about the new project allows you to build some assumptions, based on known data.

It should be noted that the project of the perspective deck helicopter became known several months ago. For the first time about this development told the chief designer of the company "Kamov" Sergey Mikheev. In the summer, he announced the development of a promising multi-purpose deck helicopter, which in the future will replace the existing equipment. It was noted that the new project will use all the experience of the developer organization gained over the past 50 years.

S. Mikheev noted that the dimensions of the new helicopter will not differ from the previous technology of a similar purpose. Maintaining the basic dimensions and some other parameters will allow using new helicopters on existing ships without any problems. The optimal dimensions of the helicopters were recorded in the early seventies, after which all the new deck vehicles of the Kamov company had similar dimensions and used the same ship hangars.

In the future, new information about the project was announced by Major-General Igor Kozhin, Chief of Naval Aviation of the Russian Navy. In his speech at the MAKS-2015 exhibition at the end of August, he spoke about the plans of the military department and industry regarding the creation of promising helicopter technology. One of the main tasks of the Kamov company at the moment is the creation of a new deck helicopter. It was noted that this machine in the future will replace the existing helicopters of the Ka-27 family.

Also, Major General Kozhin called the approximate dates of the project. The new helicopter, whose name was not disclosed then, will have to appear in 2018-20's. It did not specify which phase of the project will be completed by the end of the decade - the construction and testing of an experienced helicopter or the start of deliveries of serial equipment.

At the very beginning of December, the name of the new project became known, and to a certain extent some previously published data on the technical features of the new helicopter were confirmed. However, most of the information about the “Lamprey” project is still unpublished and probably will not be disclosed at all in the next few years.

At the moment, you can imagine the overall look of a promising helicopter "Minoga" of the company "Kamov", but so far it remains only to speculate about the various nuances of the project. Apparently, it will be a machine with traditional for the brand "Ka" the bearing screws of the coaxial circuit, two turboshaft engines and a fuselage of characteristic shape, formed by straight and curved surfaces.

Since the helicopter is proposed for basing on ships, it will receive the rotors of a folding structure, and its dimensions will not go beyond the previously defined standards. The new information, according to which the Lamprey will be smaller and lighter than the Ka-27, suggests that the fuselage length of the prospective machine will not exceed 12,25 m, the height will be less than 5,4 m, and the rotor may have a diameter up to 15,9 m. In addition, the normal take-off mass will be within 10,7 t, and the maximum will not exceed 12 t.

Like its predecessors, "Lampa" can become the basis for several specialized modifications for various purposes. It can be assumed that cargo-passenger, search and rescue and other modifications will be built on the basis of a common platform. In addition, I. Kozhin spoke directly about plans to create an anti-submarine helicopter. This means that a prospective deck helicopter will be able to receive the necessary set of special equipment or armaments, ensuring the solution of certain tasks.

The carriers of the new helicopter will be able to become all the ships of the Navy of Russia, equipped with a landing area and a hangar. Modern Russian ships, as well as ships of relatively old construction, are equipped with standard-size hangars and standardized service facilities for helicopters. Thus, the replacement of the Ka-27 family of helicopters with the Lamprey machines is unlikely to be associated with noticeable problems.

According to reports, at present, Kamov specialists are engaged in design work and are creating various components and assemblies of a promising helicopter. It will take several years to work on the Minoga project; the appearance of the first helicopter of the new model is expected at the end of this decade. Thus, the navy will receive the first mass-produced vehicles of the new type no later than the beginning of the twenties.

    Maybe when a new helicopter appears, then it will be worth writing about it? Ryabov Cyril "creative crisis"? Too often he began to appear publications about "nothing" request

      Ryabov Cyril does not have a creative crisis ... And this is a publication .. not "about anything" .. He slightly, I emphasize, slightly, slightly opened the "curtain" over the latest developments ... Pay attention when there are massive stuffing, like - we start production of Tu-160M2, etc. etc., nothing happens, but work in some design bureaus continues ... And don’t have to run into it when it appears, then it will appear ... Have you eaten up with PAK FA ??? There have been so many publications, but things are still there ...

        Sergey Ivanovich, in this case I agree with Olga. No specifics in the publication. And there is absolutely no guarantee that everything said in the publication is true. Key phrase of publication:
        however, for now it remains only to speculate about the various nuances of the project.

        Sorry if I hurt someone’s feelings, but I’m just ashamed to write this. negative

          There is a "draft project", information just leaked ... I heard about this project some time ago, yes, I agree, there is no specifics, but compare it with publications like - in the nth year, we will deliver, we will conquer the nth percentage of the market, we will begin production etc. and the like .... Let it be that the development is underway, then silence, but not tomorrow we will be ahead of the rest ... Something like this, I think.

              All the same, after almost 100 years of "creative searches" they attach a pushing screw from the back, or again, like this bow on the side?

          Lampreys. How to cook these critters?
          I saw here in the store. Alive still. Stir, infections, airborne holes breathe. I remembered that it seems like cooking them is easy, but it turns out very tasty. That is the question: what and how can be done with them?

          Loser, Mlyn. The seventh hole from the mouth. Lampreys are also called semidyr by the people. Baska cut, got the insides. He put it in a bowl and covered it with cheap coarse salt for 10 minutes. Then he rubbed the fish with his hands, salt removes the mucus well. For lampreys and eel the most. Then it was washed under running water, cut into pieces, dried. Sprinkled with salt and pepper, a little flour and fried to a beautiful color. Separately, fry onions. You make a marinade from a mixture of white wine and lemon juice (you can take vinegar) in a saucepan, by heating and evaporating. I’m adding a little more apple juice. Then lay in layers in a saucepan and simmer for 40-50 minutes on medium heat. Be sure to cool and eat brown bread with vodka.

            This is not a secret for me wink Although in my opinion this fish is too oily, I prefer more grayling or taimen. On Amur, lamprey goes to spawn in December. Sometimes it is caught a lot, in some villages dried lamprey used to even be heated stoves.

        The specifics of this topic are drawn to espionage, at least by industry. Somehow, right after your post, I recalled my youth when it seems that I first saw a MiG-25 photo from sheet A-24 and messed up sources in the KB library in the US magazine ,,, Aer Force. wassat

          Kirill has a lot of interesting and informative publications, but due to the fact that he is a regular full-time author of the site, without diminishing his dignity and past successes, it can be noted that quality sometimes suffers from this. I myself know how difficult it is to write a good publication, and even if time is running out.

    It is impossible for a fleet without turntables, and the extreme Ka-27PL vehicles - of the release of the first half of the 90s of the 20th century. One cannot endlessly extend a resource. May God grant that the Kamovites get a new helicopter and find finances for its production.
