Holding "Helicopters of Russia" reports that measures have been taken for the early modernization of the Mi-8MTV-5-1 helicopters in the interests of the Air Force of the Russian Federation. The modernization of such helicopters consists in equipping them with active jamming stations “Lever-AV”. After updating the Mi-8MTV-5-1 will be able to suppress control systems weapons the adversary. Reports about it press office holding.


From the statement by the head of the Russian Helicopters holding, Alexander Mikheev, during a visit to the Kazan Optical Mechanical Plant:
We passed the Mi-8MTV-5-1 helicopters ahead of schedule. In the framework of our fruitful cooperation with KRET, the Aerospace Forces of Russia will receive the latest technology ahead of time. It is worth noting that in the 2017 year, the holding Russian Helicopters plans to supply KRET with an additional batch of Mi-8MTV-5-1.


Upgraded Mi-8MTV-5-1 turned into EW facilities


From the press service report:
After installation of the Lever-AV active jamming station on Mi-8MTV-5-1, helicopters will be able to reconnaissance and suppress enemy weapon control systems, providing group protection aviation and ground equipment from the defeat of enemy air defense systems.


Thus, the modernization turned the Mi-8MTV-5-1 helicopters into independent means of electronic warfare.

    Why didn’t they remake the old Mi-24s in order to move in the same order with the Mi 35-28? There is armor, a gun ...

      Well, no one will lift the old fuselages into the air, and the volume of the Mi-8's cargo compartment is at least three times greater than the landing compartment of the Mi-24. Produced on the basis of the Mi-8 at one time "VzPU", i.e. ed. 80IV, it is Mi-9. So if where to mount the electronic filling, then the Mi-8 platform is just right.

        When will "publishers" start to format articles normally? Why is the author / copy-paste not indicated, where is an adequate link to the material, where is the signature of the helicopter photo with its description? The link is not made to the site, but to a specific publication. I did not find this news on the presented site (http://www.russianhelicopters.aero/). The event described does not appear in the news feed for 2016. This means that there can be no confidence in the stated material. Whoever threw him here, let him either give a normal link, or go to write fairy tales for the censor.

        PS. And by the way, this "news" is 100 years old at lunchtime. There is good material (in contrast to this) from 03.09.15/8/1 about the electronic warfare Mi-8MTPR-5 helicopter (which is the Mi-1MTV-1458627-XNUMX described in this article). See: http://bmpd.livejournal.com/XNUMX.html.

    There was a good film about electronic warfare equipment at Zvezda.
    In particular, there were very spectacular shots with missiles leaving the helicopter and detonating the Smerch missiles while still in the air, without reaching the target when the electronic warfare equipment was operating.
    EW funds are the future. They can minimize the possibility of defeating manpower and equipment by means where there is at least some kind of electronic filling.
    Thanks to the scientists who managed to come up with a fundamentally new weapon, and the designers who turned their ideas into real technology!

      Electronic warfare, electronic warfare, "panacea", "fundamentally new" smile

      Since 1905, in the Russo-Japanese War, "interrupting the Japanese negotiations with an intensified spark." smile
      Yes, any weapon from time immemorial was originally designed to work not in greenhouse conditions, but in particular under conditions of interference of various kinds. And these cat and mouse from the time of Alexander Stepanich Popov last.

    Nevertheless, MI-8, etc. ... could have been changed externally! We are not able to make a beautiful shell in Russia! And so a reliable helicopter (engine and in general) ... Like our Kalashnik!

          Here it is the perception of the consumer. The army thing is quite practical and ... conservative. And the proverb works - do not touch.
          On the other hand, what to put there? Xeon? Spoiler? Sound system to hollow?
          While there is nothing revolutionary for the sake of which it is worth thinking about changing the form factor of the hull in helicopter engineering

      Excuse me, don’t confuse a bolt with a nut.
      The Mi-28 is still an attack helicopter and there electronics is sharpened for another.
      By the way, this is not a task, did you watch the S-92 / H-92 Superhawk? paint in green and outwardly something very similar to a helicopter half a century old. And despite the fact that Sikorsky releases him almost in the 2nd. Strange, don’t you? Where are the innovations? Where is the innovation?

    Mi-8 already didn’t turn into anything ...! A lot of them died along with pilots and passengers (they just shot them) ... Excellent turntables! But they are still peaceful in their appearance (whatever they hang on them) ... Workhorses! They need to erect a monument in Russia and not only! hi

    Mark, are you a designer by profession or a hairdresser? (judging by the love of paints). Or do you still play beautiful airplanes and tanks? (judging by your pictures). The smartest people are working on the topic, not the "victims of the EG".

    A bit of Mi-8 aerodynamics have been tweaked. By giblets, they differ dramatically, the first mi-8 and the last series. And the point is to completely change the appearance of military equipment? Will she become stronger or faster? These cars need to be steamed by suckers every three to four years new.
    Speaking of galoshes and high boots :))) What they do not develop a new design?
    The more perfect the product, the less it changes with time.
