According to the agreement recently signed between Moscow and New Delhi, at least 200 Ka-226T helicopters will be delivered to India, of which 60 will be built in Russia, and the rest on Indian territory, reports RIA News.


Russia and India are organizing the joint production of Ka-226T helicopters


“The first X-NUMX Ka-60T helicopters will be produced in Russia at the Kumertau Aviation Production Enterprise (KumAPP), which is part of the Russian Helicopters holding; the remaining 226 units are in India. The first customer of the Ka-140T helicopters will be the Ministry of Defense of India. In the future, the program can be expanded, the possibility of joint access to the markets of third countries is envisaged, ”a source in the defense industry told the agency.

This project is being implemented by the Indian government as part of the “Make in India” initiative. For the production of helicopters is planned to create a Russian-Indian joint venture.

Help Agency: “The Ka-226T lightweight multi-purpose helicopter developed by Kamov is serially manufactured at KumAPP. It is built on the coaxial pattern of rotors and has excellent handling and power supply. Ka-226T is equipped with modern flight-navigation equipment, can easily maneuver in dense urban high-rise buildings and in the mountains. The absence of a tail rotor and compact dimensions make it possible to use small landing pads. Ka-226T has a low noise level and meets the most modern environmental requirements. It has a removable transport module that allows you to change the functionality of the helicopter in a short time. "

    And then the Indian press:
    Up to 60% of Russian devices are faulty
    . Forgetting that they are not 100% Russian already assembled. am

      Why so sharp. Meanwhile, India regularly buys Russian weapons.
      And do not scold them. They are also not bad businessmen! laughing

        For the production of helicopters, it is planned to create a Russian-Indian joint venture

        We will rejoice for the shareholders of the new enterprise !!!
        And also for the shareholders of other joint ventures created abroad.
        And glorify offshore companies of all stripes!
        Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!

        After all, they are created there with only one purpose - to transfer taxes to the Russian budget as much as possible.

          I understand your sarcasm. I understand that everything is about so much that we ourselves can’t do anything on our own. Everything is already weak with us, and countries like India take advantage of the fact that we have a collapse inside our country, and they calmly use it. We must sell products of production, not technology and raw materials.

        the news about the purchase and the organization of production in India K226t is already sheltering like a soap opera - for a long time! It seems like a delegation thread after each visit, so what is the matter, why is the process not going on?

          Thanks to the Indians, they saved our KA-226. I can’t understand why we built a factory near Moscow to produce Italian helicopters. Why do our government agencies buy imported helicopters? Why do Russians always admire a stranger and never respect their own? There are many examples; IL-96, TU-334, Tu -214 and 204, IL-114, -112 and many more examples can be given not only in aircraft construction, but also in other areas.

        The fact of the matter is that they are not bad merchants. But someone regularly shoes our dealers from Rostec: prices are knocked down to such an extent that they give them free.

        No matter how it happened with helicopters,
        with SU-30MKI:
        1. Half of the aircraft made in India.
        2. The lion's share of Avionics is set western
        development and production (in their own terms of reference).
        А претензии "по ненадежности" СУ-30МКИ предъявля-
        Russia. Not correct somehow.

    Of course, it is a pity that not the whole batch will be produced with us, but nevertheless, even for the license, the rupee will not be dripping either. And to establish production and service at one time with all the desire not to do. So there will be little profit in the budget. That's just from the news it is not clear whether our kits or a complete assembly of Indian components.

      Something is likely to subsequently be localized when building the assembly, and the first ones will be exactly done in Russia.

        I’ll clarify
        60 вертолетов соберут в России, на Кумертауском авиационном производственном предприятии (КумАПП; входит в состав "Вертолетов России"), а в Индии — только 140 бортов.

        , especially considering that we will not produce engines for it.

        Ka-226T with Arrius 2G1 engines of the French manufacturer Turbomeca,
        Yet again
        As previously reported, the remotorization of the Ka-226 using French engines was made specifically for the Indian Air Force tender for the supply of 197 light helicopters. The new power plant exceeds the power used on the basic modification of the Rolls-Royce M250 motor, which allows you to increase the static ceiling of the machine, load capacity and improves a number of other characteristics.
        That something like this.

          If in 60 Russian-built helicopters the engines and avionics (probably the most expensive in the cost of cars) will be imported (will have to be purchased in the west), then the Russian remains iron (frame) and gearbox - what is the benefit then? Only in maintaining the market?

      I think that the lion's share of Avionics, like on the SU-30MKI, will be adversary. And the share of Avionics in a modern aircraft, by the way, is about (75 - 80)% of the price of the device as a whole.

      And look whose engine is standing there. Most likely, the joint construction of this helicopter is just a departure from sanctions. India is not under sanctions, which means it can safely purchase imported components from the same French, and it can also make repairs.
      I do not insist on the veracity of the version, this is just my point of view.

      Not only not time, but more than that - India needs to supply more than modern Russian
      weapons, we must remember that India is not only a competitor to China in Southeast Asia, but
      possibly an adversary. China is a surprise in a snuffbox, unpredictable.

    Вот только хорошо бы, чтоб Ка-226 индийской сборки продавались с каким-то отличительным названием или индексом. Чтоб в случае чего всегда можно было чётко выяснить, где вертолет собран. Это к вопросу о "наездах" индусов на наши истребители их сборки.

    In general, the epic with the Ka-226 is interesting. At first, Kazakhstan was offered joint assembly. Well, here the Europeans occupied the assembly, training, etc. ... There was a second offer, but here is interesting, whose engines? When the sanctions can be signed by the Indians.
    So let me remind you. Engine: 2 x TVLD Allison 250-С20R / 2.
    Sanctions, do not tell my horseshoes, they are working - this year our Ministry of Internal Affairs could not buy BA TIGER, referred to the sanctions and components.

    If this saves the helicopter, then let the Indians buy a license. People developed it, created, and released as many as 70 in Russia.

        Flies, made since 2002. It turns out 5,3 helicopters per year. With such a scale, it is not clear how this LLC has still not gone bankrupt.

            I remember, it seems, and the FSB took them into service, in the interests of the border guards. They were planned for the PSKR type Hunter (aka Rubin). It seems so.

    нормально он летает, хорошая машина, да есть конечно "детские болезни", но заводские оперативно дорабатывают, у чистого 226 движок Роллс-Ройс (Аллисон) слабоваты конечно и сопливые, у 226Т Турбомека получше, и мощнее и не такой капризный.
