Russian and Indian specialists have launched a project to organize the production of at least two hundred Ka-226T light helicopters in India, the press service of the Russian Helicopters holding company reported.




“The signing of an agreement between the governments of the Russian Federation and India on cooperation in the field of helicopter engineering took place as part of the official visit to Moscow of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in December last year,” the newspaper reports. Look.

According to the release, “production of at least X-NUMX Ka-200T helicopters and its modifications will be organized in India.” The agreement also provides for "maintenance, repair of helicopters and the provision of their technical support."

“Currently, the parties have begun to implement the agreement. Large international transactions usually have a long preparatory stage, and the details of the transaction are confidential information. All work is carried out in strict accordance with the terms of the agreement. Technical consultations and negotiations are already underway between the Russian and Indian companies participating in the project, ”the message says.

It is noted that "in the near future, the technical-organizational part will be agreed upon, where all key parameters will be determined, the holding specialists will evaluate the production capacity of Indian partners."

The press service reminds that the “Ka-226T multi-purpose helicopter was developed at the Kamov enterprise (part of the“ Russian Helicopters ”) and is mass-produced at KumAPP (Kumertau aviation manufacturing plant)”. The machine is built "according to the coaxial pattern of rotors and is characterized by excellent handling and power supply".

    This is great news. This is exactly what I wanted when I said that the defense spending of the country can and should be profitable and recoup the costs incurred.

      - In my opinion, this is both good and bad ... good, of course, because it is money. Well, advertising on the market, clear day. And it is bad, because the production is being developed in India, not in Russia. And, as a "side effect", the real economy of India is getting stronger, not Russia. The money received under the contract will be spent one way or another, but the factories and specialists in India will remain. And even if the production of combat helicopters is curtailed, I think they will be able to convert them to the production of civilian helicopters. For instance. Or finalize the technical processes and release the next generation of combat vehicles.

          - Nothing at all - of course, worse ... but why not build factories here, on our territory? Probably, India has set a strict condition that factories will be built with them. Anyway, it's a shame what already there. I was not talking about the use of our experience, more about the fact that Indians still have the capacity to produce rotorcraft. That is, even if they cannot rivet combat helicopters - for example, by the end of the contract, the Ka-226 will irrevocably become obsolete - then they will be able to produce relatively inexpensive and beautiful civilian helicopters with the help of designers and some modernization. That is, factories will continue to be profitable, and people will have work.

            This principal policy of India is to create its own production. It is useless to argue. It’s better to have something and pay for development.

            Well, the key conditions for everyone (and there is not only Ka, but all sorts of Eurocopters / Bells) are the organization of production and optimization of the board for Indian components.

            In fact, Ka-226T was chosen due to the fact that engines for them are already being assembled in India under license.

            KA-226 is a deep modernization of the old man KA-26, we will honestly say that the device is not one of the last and the fact that we managed to take a real place in the Indian market is a success. There is nothing beyond the natural, so this device will be purchased in such huge quantities, even in machine kits. I’m not saying that our jobs are occupied. For such contracts as a rule, a train of additional agreements lasts for decades.

              That's right!
              The first flight took place on September 4, 1997. The Ka-226 is a modernization of the well-established Ka-26 helicopter. Designed for the transport of 6 passengers or 1350 kg of cargo (including external suspension).
              The beginning of operation in 2002. You cannot call it a breakthrough. The workhorse of aviation.
              ..... "Flag of India.svg India - in December 2015, a contract was signed for the supply of 200 Ka-226Ts for the Indian armed forces. The agreement provides for the creation in India of a joint venture with the participation of Rostec holdings (Rosoboronexport and Helicopters of Russia ") and the Indian corporation Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL). The order can be increased to 400 helicopters." ....
              A great contract for the Russian Federation. Negotiations are also underway to open licensed production in Venezuela.

            Our leaders pin all their hopes in the economy on the free market. And of course the business "elite". And why does our business "elite" need production in Russia? God forbid that everyone will be taken away. To our bitter regret, we basically have no national bourgeoisie and therefore the existing "Russian bourgeoisie has no interest in developing its own production in Russia, better assembly. For example, for the same helicopters; for example, we are producing under license. YEKATERINBURG, May 21, 2015 / TASS / The Ural Civil Aviation Plant (UZGA) and the American company Bell Helikopter signed on Thursday an agreement on the licensed assembly of Bell "407 GXP helicopters on the territory of the Russian plant. Agreements between the parties were reached at the 8th international exhibition of the helicopter industry "HeliRussia-2015" in Moscow, the correspondent said in a telephone conversation. TASS Deputy Commercial Director of UZGA Mikhail Peresadin. It is planned to produce 20-30 Bell helicopters per year. The customers of the helicopter, he called the STRUCTURES of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, private business and flight schools.
            More details: http://www.kommersant.ru/doc/2900645. And we buy the French, for government agencies. Mr. Badeha saw the structures interested in providing medical assistance as the basic state customers of the helicopter. We can conclude why our development of our own aviation is slowed down. One thing on TV, another in practice. My opinion is that it is necessary to introduce a ban on the purchase of imported aircraft, and any other equipment by state structures, if there are Russian analogues. Otherwise, our officials will always prove the greater usefulness of American chewing gum in front of Russian bread.

              Stalin always imposed a deadline on all tasks.
              Not executed - either fired or in prison. Example: gave the task to do
              A 100% copy of the American B-29 that fell into our hands. In two years
              at the parade in Moscow, flew our Tu-4. The Americans were in shock. In two years, all the necessary industry was transformed for the production of 40 thousand parts, for the serial production of this aircraft.
              I completely agree, we chew gum either strangers or the remnants of the USSR.
              We will have to lick our wounds for a long time after the collapse of the USSR, even if we make no mistakes. There are many mistakes now, but there are no responsible ones. And this is a brake.

            Dear Pereira, you may not know, but India buys all equipment with the condition of further production at its facilities. True, the quality is noticeably reduced. The Hindus are well aware of this, therefore: "" The agreement also provides for "" "maintenance, repair of helicopters and provision of their technical support." So the Kamovites will not remain without work.

          - This is all clear, and I do not argue with these provisions. The only sad thing is that the factories for the production of the updated Kamov will be deployed in India, and the specialists will be Indians, and all the attendant advantages will remain with the Indians. As for the rest, of course, the contract is good.

          - This is precisely the structure (workshops, conveyors, etc.), this is the infrastructure (materials, resources, etc.), these are graduate engineers who will have a chance after graduating from the university to work at the enterprise according to their profile and improve, and not shout "free cash register!" in McDuck. Remind me how long the buyer was waiting for the "dry-superjet"? So that interest would be found.

          - You shouldn't think that it will always be like this, these guys are fast learners (like the Chinese, by the way). You need to constantly evolve to be one step ahead of them. China is quite successfully copying other people's models of technology - a fact. But he is also trying to independently develop high-tech industries. So far, they still get a copy of someone else's decisions - take at least cars. But it may well begin to turn out already purely "toys", and then it will be difficult for us to compete with them.

          - They don't have such a clear orientation. For example, India preferred French fighters. Even after the Mistrals.

            Our luck is that we sell, although modernized, but still an old device. There is only one way out - to go in front! While the Indians will master the release of such a device, knowing their very serious attitude to technology (well, what can you do about the mentality), you can develop a new one and prepare for release.
            And to occupy such a part of the market, such a country as India, is worth even a new car, and talking about such an old man is simply a success!

Yes, this deal is PROFITABLE for Russia! Firstly, the first cars, I don't remember, but something like 40-60, will be made IN RUSSIA; Secondly, as production in India develops, they will be assembled from Russian sets; Thirdly, the engines are French, and we have strained with engines for light cars, so we have LEGAL access to the supply of engines. Fourthly, with this series, Russia remains in this segment of turntables in India seriously and for a long time in terms of supplies of spare parts and authoring support This is just like that - on a vskidk! This all can not be compared with the SCAC's work on, promoting "the Superbudget, which ALREADY screwed up with China, which has signed a contract with Boeing for the supply, in particular, of an analogue of the Superbudget, and even its own version in the air lifted, and even count Iran pissed away - the Iranians signed a contract with the Airbus for a line of civilians. Also with the Il-114m, the release of which was simply sabotagely delayed, we fly in Iran - the Asia-Pacific region climbs with a serial waving and Bombardiers. Yes, Russia ALREADY with MS- 21 LATE - competitors are in the air! And here you attacked the helicopter builders!

        The first and so far the only production helicopter Ka-226T (tail number "241", serial number 523226521002). The helicopter was built in early 2013 for the Russian Emergencies Ministry, but was never delivered due to the termination of the contract and is at the disposal of Kamov. Anapa (Vityazevo),

        In March 2015, there were reports that the consideration of applications for LUH is in the final phase. If the latest information on the DAC decision is correct, then India has made the final choice in favor of the Russian proposal. The implementation of this choice will mean a cardinal turn in the fate of the Ka-226 helicopter and its decisive breakthrough into the world market.

In the future, the number of components produced in the Russian Federation will be reduced and replaced by Indian ones. The Russian gearbox, the HB column, and the HB (main rotor) blades themselves will most likely remain. Will Indians be the holders of the original technical documentation?

          Firstly, I didn’t "tebek" you, if you find such an appeal in my commentary, please indicate it and I will apologize.
          Secondly, you (following the example of a certain "chosen" people) put counter questions to the questions I put forward. In "bazaar" communication, such a discussion tactic is undoubtedly effective, although it is often used by "defective individuals".

          Armament and software where done?

          Thirdly, in part III of the technical specifications for the Ka-226, weapons are not spelled out, and if the Indians install it, then the flag is in their hands. I am not aware of the "digitization" of the Ka-226 control system, but I will gladly familiarize myself with this innovation, here are the cards in your hands: you can enlighten me by sharing interesting information.

          Do our people sell everything with giblets? Do the FSB get money just like that?

          The question is interesting, but the answer was already given in 1991, when the Soviet Union collapsed.

    . The machine is built "according to the coaxial rotor design and is characterized by excellent controllability and power-to-weight ratio."

    The two largest arms manufacturers and sellers in the world (USA and Russia) have different trading strategies.

    The US strategy deviates very much from the economy towards politics - we will only sell it to the right countries, we’ll burden the sale with political conditions, we will sell mainly old weapons (under the slogans of fighting Russian aggression), we will intervene in contests (including those where the Americans do not participate at all) , we organize production in the territory of third countries only if they have democracy.

    Russia's strategy is purely economic - we will sell it to all solvent (at least Saudis, at least Venezuelans), without political conditions, we will sell modern weapons on the basis of fair competition with other manufacturers.

    Perhaps, from the point of view of profit, the strategy of amers is more profitable; they artificially support demand with false motivations (in all kinds of Poland, the Baltic states and Bulgaria).

    However, an honest trader in quality goods has always been appreciated.

    No matter how it turned out as with the "dry": they themselves put out, and then whine - an unreliable plane. Reliability of the aviation complex = reliability of equipment + qualified maintenance.

    Well, the key conditions for everyone (and there is not only Ka, but all sorts of Eurocopters / Bells) are the organization of production and optimization of the board for Indian components.

    In fact, Ka-226T was chosen due to the fact that engines for them are already being assembled in India under license.

    "....... Light helicopter Ka-226T with French engines will soon be certified

    The Ka-226T light multi-purpose seven-seater helicopter with French Turbomeka Arrius 2G engines is certified in the 1st quarter of 2015.

    It is reported that 2 copies of the Ka-226T participated in the certification tests.

    The Ka-226T helicopter is equipped with two Turbomeka Arrius 2G gas turbine engines with a power of 670 hp each. with high rates of altitude, reliability and resource.


    With successful certification, I’m not sure that Indians will choose Ukrainian engines.
    ..... "Assembly of the modern multipurpose helicopter KA-2016T may begin in 226 in Kazakhstan. The KA-226T model is a version of the KA-226 helicopter with Turbomeca Arrius 2G1 engines and a new gearbox installed on it. It is also possible to install a system of folding the rotor blades and add some additional options. ".......

    There is some kind of a bargain deal. We Indians must localize 50% of the components, and the engines are not included, because french. And then India will export after the release of its 200pcs. Maybe, of course, this will help us to saturate our aircraft with small helicopters ..
