      It’s good that modernization of production has begun!
      It would still be someone to work, need a job shift, young and proactive!
      And then aviation will have engines that are high-quality and reliable!

      Somehow, even unusually quickly began to move. What is undoubtedly pleasing. Everywhere would be so.

        After making any decision before the start of physical work, there are many stages. It was at this time that professional zradniks yelled that nothing was being done, and so on. Nobody knocks with a hammer - that means they are not doing anything. laughing In fact, at this time, a task is being compiled, a list of enterprises that will participate, what needs to be built, what already exists, what enterprises can do what, and so on. In general, a picture of what needs to be done is compiled. A chain of those in charge is being built, design work and preparatory work are beginning. All this time, various oppositionists are rubbing the layman that money is stolen, but nothing is being done and will not be done. Well, as with the Vostochny spaceport. It has already been built for several months, the settings and preparations for the first start are underway, and the group d-e-b-and-l-o-in yells about everything and that everything is stolen and no one will fly anywhere. fool With the production of tu160m2 will be the same. Moreover, the project is a long one, and until 2021-23, pseudo-patriots and liberoids similar to them will have the opportunity to yell about the assault and that everything has been stolen and no tu160 will fly anywhere. crying

      Who about what, and the bald one about the hairbrush - behind the fence at the 22nd plant (KAPO, on which the Tu-160 is made) is the 16th plant - engine-building (KMPO). True, they did not make engines for the Tu-160 on it, but to support it the same way is not very good there (although it became better, it seems).

    Such motors are unique in their kind. The development of such, debugging and production - aerobatics technology. On the fingers of one hand, you can count the countries that are able to DEVELOP such engines, and there are not many that produce.

    Before the heap, do something of the kind NK-4 for turboprop sludge (-112, -114). This engine, even in modern times, AI-20 would replace for the IL-38, and with a modern revision ... Although, this news also says that the engine building, thank God, is alive. We will grow personnel, we will recreate technology. But we will free the education system from the current leadership.

    This is really good. However, the military-industrial complex is at the forefront today.
