Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov told the media that the An-124 “Ruslan” aircraft, which is actively used today for the needs of the Ministry of Defense, will be replaced. At the same time, as reported by the news agency TASS, the wishes of not only the main military department of the country, but also potential civilian customers will be taken into account.


Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Yuri Borisov announced the need to think about replacing the An-124 Ruslan


During the third congress of the Russian aircraft manufacturers, Yuri Borisov said:
In the near future we will have to seriously work on a promising aviation complex, I mean the super-heavy transport aircraft. We will have to think about how to create, in the interests of, first of all, the Ministry of Defense, and the civilian market, a sought-after aircraft.

To date, the largest transport aircraft operated by the Russian Ministry of Defense is An-124 Ruslan. The maximum flight range of the An-124 is 7,5 thousand km, the maximum payload capacity is 120 tons. In the structure of the Military Transport Aviation of the Russian Federation - 10 units An-124.

An-124 "Ruslan" - development of OKB im.O.K.Antonova. The first flight of the plane made in December 1982 year. In 1987, active operation of a heavy transport worker began, which for more than a year was the largest aircraft in size in the world.

    Must be replaced. But as? The whole fan of conditionally lost technologies is immediately revealed. Construction of wide-bodied large-capacity, get and sign.

      You obviously lagged behind the news the engines are ready and the glider is a technical matter) and they will be more economical and low noise! And not only that, they will be universal on the entire line of passenger airliners, which means lower prices

          7 years on what? For the first prototype or already for the required fleet?

          Coconuts, for example, are not steamed on new and quietly upgrade their analogue of С5 Galaxy. And the fleet they have more than 100 cars. Compare the air mobility of troops ...

            MOSCOW, November 10. / TASS /. The new Il-106 military transport aircraft being developed in Russia will be able to land on the ground, Sergei Velmozhkin, Director General of the Ilyushin Aviation Complex, said on November 10.
            "This machine will be very large, 80-100 tons. The main difference is that it will be able to land on the ground," he said on the air of the Russia 24 TV channel. Velmozhkin noted that this aircraft will be of the An-124 Ruslan class.
            Earlier, at the beginning of November, the general designer of "IL" Nikolay Talikov said that "by 2022-2023 it will be possible to speak seriously about the aircraft", and now a preliminary design is being developed.

              The groans of NATO, that weeping psaki, about nothing.
              Monk, you, too, better read how, for example, during the "Shield in the Desert" the Coconut strategic transport command there in 3 weeks dragged the C5s and Starlifters half a million heads of HP. and half a million tons of equipment. Half a millionCarl!
              And no one moaned ..

              About our checks and transfers, they drag mainly motorized infantry, and basically 76mi, and the article is about heavier vehicles. And as for them:
              Do not forget - they have troops scattered across 180 countries. So compare mobility.

              So we compare that the amers from all bases can drag more than 200 units of heavy equipment (tanks, self-propelled guns, air defense systems, Apaches, etc.) to the desired point. And we? 20.

              You still cannot omit one fat nuance - the analogues of our 124x, their С5 Galaxy are equipped with air refueling systems. Those. he takes the maximum load and minimum fuel, and after take-off he saws even to Antaktida, sticking to the tankers.
              And our dalnyaks are forced to lug with intermediate landings. There is no need to explain how this affects mobility, transported weight, flight complexity and machine resource.

              So we remove the pink glasses from the nose, do not listen to the noodles from the ears and groans. bully

The source of information: http://old.vko.ru/article.asp?pr_sign=archive.2005.24.17_22
                and went by dates and deeds of the past:
                Preparations for the war in the Persian Gulf were carried out for five and a half months as part of Operation Desert Shield - three weeks!
                At the first stage, which lasted from August 7 to 9, the first echelon forces were deployed to Saudi Arabia, consisting of a reinforced brigade of the 82nd Airborne Division, two tactical aviation squadrons (F-15C and D aircraft), a group of 5 aircraft AWACS and control (E-ZS AWACS aircraft and two teams (20 specialists each) of ground-based mobile satellite communications points. At the same time, ships of the 6th and 7th US fleets were redeployed to the Red and Arabian Seas, to the Gulf of Oman and the Persian Gulf. - until one division is approximately 1500 tsp nothing outstanding ...
                The second stage of the Desert Shield operation took place from August 10 to 30: there was an intensive transfer of aircraft to Saudi Arabia and the strengthening of the AUG continued. ... about personnel or anything ... 0 people 0 heavy equipment ...
                ... ah, now we come to the most interesting ... wink
                During the third stage, which lasted from August 31 to November 7, by air and sea the main forces were transferred to the conflict area: 1st Armored Cavalry, 2nd Armored, 24th Mechanized, 82nd Airborne and 101st Air Assault Divisions; 197th separate mechanized brigade and 3rd separate armored regiment of the ground forces; 1st, 4th and 7th Marine Expeditionary Brigades ... oh, it turns out to be by sea, and not just by air ?! ... sadness ...
                In the United States involved in the transport of troops and cargo 269 ​​US Navy Shipping Command Vessels and chartered vessels of merchant fleets (18 countries provided 50 merchant ships) Ports on the western and eastern coasts of the USA and in the Gulf of Mexico, the Hawaiian Islands, Japan, South Korea, Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium were used as transfer points.
                Since the beginning of August, about 190 vessels have been involved in the transfer of troops, military equipment and MTO equipment to the conflict zone since the beginning of August, including: storage vessels for ships and military equipment of the Marine Corps - 13; storage vessels for weapons and military equipment for “rapid deployment forces” - 12; high-speed transports of self-propelled equipment - 8; vessels of the reserve of the ILC of the first stage - 43; aviation support vessels - 2; tankers - 18; hospital courts - 2; charter vessels under the American and foreign flags - 88. ... oh la la ... it turns out everything was by sea, not by air ... since Carl, was that? ... by air, like birds or even by sea? ... and don't say I'm nasty ... laughing

                    I confuse the deadlines, for 22 days there are 4,6mln tons of kilometers. It is difficult to evaluate from this, as we do not know the routes.
                    But if we estimate the "gross cargo" at the lower border, for the entire operation time:
                    513 000 tons / 165 days, then this is more than 3000 tons per day .. Not 200 tons, but 3 (three) thousand, Karl .. wink

                    So the NATO operatives know how to quickly carry their junk, no matter how they groan there.

                    And for the most part in the transfer of heavy equipment, I already wrote. The fleet of transporters for us is specifically insufficient.

For 22 days, 265 C-141 Starlifter and C-5 Galaxy aircraft of the US Air Force, as well as the aircraft of the American Civil Aviation Reserve completed transportation in excess of 4,65 million ton-kilometers. In total, during the operation, BTA aircraft transported 482000 passengers and 513000 tons of cargo.

                Now the IL-106 project is at the stage of preliminary development. It will be an aircraft with a powerful engine, developed on the basis of the PD-14 engine, with a payload of 80 tons. Serial production of the IL-106 is planned to begin at Aviastar in 2022-23.

                Some nonsense. One "gas engine" is it finally, technically, what the hell is that? What type of dviglov is it? ship gas turbine? or maybe a steam turbine with an atomic boiler as a steam generator? belay
                Two electric propellers ... But what the hell is it anyway? To prevent the driveshaft and gearbox? So they are not on airplanes like a stop crane by the way laughing The introduction to the turbine, instead of the gearbox, also includes an electric generator with electrical wiring and electric motors in the airplane, where every kilogram registered is an awesome find. fellow fool
                With this overall and transport volume, purely for reasons of reliability and safety, the engines should be the same or comparable 3-4, or even more.
                In addition, the giant hump of a single type of gas engine hardly improves aerodynamics, while the immersion of electric drives in the wing, with huge "propellers", is the best gift for air defense: far away their "blinking" will be seen ...
                So the movie is cool, but the design is clearly hopeless ... Perhaps even stupid. request

                PD-14 plans to scale and design on its basis an engine analog of NK-32 in terms of performance, and in the future this engine is planned to be installed on the An-124 and IL-96, AND IN A TWO-ENGINE OPTION! let's hit the road! Its economic component will be archived .. It is precisely after launching the PD-96 series that the main efforts of the design bureau will be directed ..

            "Aircraft of the Military Transport Aviation (VTA) from the Severny loading airfields in Ivanovo, Vostochny in Ulyanovsk, Tolmachevo in Novosibirsk and the Chkalovsky near Moscow flew to the airfields of the Eastern Military District," the ministry's press service said.
            Checking the combat readiness of the troops of the Eastern Military District.
            Verification of combat readiness of the Eastern Military District began in Primorye
            As specified in the message, more than 20 An-124 Ruslan, Il-76, An-26 and An-12 aircraft were involved in the transfer of troops, which made more than 10 sorties per day to deliver military and equipment to these airfields. In total, the Il-76 and An-124 Ruslan planes carried out more than 30 sorties, transported about 200 tons of cargo and more than 1 personnel.

          Everything except the airframe will be replaced with the Swans and not only modern analogues of what was installed will be installed, but also new ones will be added taking into account new tasks and threats. The Tu-160M2 will be a NEW bomber, only outwardly similar to the Allied Swans.
          Regarding the 76s, there is an opinion that gradually the fleet of these machines will be replaced by IL-96, with NK-93 engines.

          Special forces were transported, it was during one of the conflicts. They drove 10 (!!!) BTR-70 into the plane! There was no squeezing in the cargo compartment: they stood in 2 rows! Plus crews flying in the passenger compartment. However, neither cargo securing nor transportation problems arose.
          An analogue will not be easy to build. So you will have to tinker with the replacement of Ruslan. This is the search for personnel, and the readjustment of airlines, and MONEY.

          Unfortunately, this is not so. More precisely, not quite so.
          Once I met the statement of one of the designers of the F-4 "Phantom": give me a good engine and even my iron will fly. By the way, it is the F-4 that illustrates this statement well: the aircraft, which to this day is in service, has never suffered from graceful proportions and sleek contours; nevertheless, even in carrier-based aviation, famous for its stringent design requirements, it was used for quite a long time ...
          In an amicable way, of course, "everything should be fine in a person: a suit, and a tie, and a mustache, and a hat" laughing More examples from the story? Compare the characteristics of the Me-109 with a weak engine and Me-109E, with a more powerful engine. There were no major changes in aerodynamics.

Not from a good life: they could not, there was not enough talent for more. Or "there is power - no mind is needed."

          But airships would be nice to resurrect. Both of their weaknesses, which predetermined their career in the twentieth century - helium and backward navigation equipment - are now successfully overcome. And their navigation range and carrying capacity are an order of magnitude higher than that of any aircraft. I read that to create an airship with a carrying capacity of 2000 tons is not fiction, not utopia.

Such a device cannot be confused with anything. For thirty years I have seen enough in Shrm, but even after "Ruslan" this device looks amazing! especially if it passes at an altitude like the Su-24 over the "Cook")) And the runway ... Judging by the time, it was still testing, most likely it went without a load.

          Mriya may not be necessary, but it was Ruslan who transferred the C400 to Syria. And there are only 10 of them. And if a mobile ICBM complex fits there, then it will not be superfluous. In which case, "op" ... and Russia's ally anywhere in the world is a nuclear power laughing

Because only your plane, only your engines, especially the military. By the way, he and the transport companies are really looking forward to: it’s no secret that one flight of Ruslan is more expensive than two flights of the more economical cargo Boeing 747. Therefore, Ruslans are used only for delivery of oversized cargo, which Boeing simply will not fit in any way.

Now there is an opportunity to build a completely new aircraft with modern engines, BRIO and an oval fuselage.

      The trouble is that in Western countries, the development of technology usually proceeds systematically. And we Russians have a tradition - to do something good, and rest on our laurels until it finally becomes obsolete. When the lag becomes obvious, we catch ourselves and begin to tear out the outlines, making another feat. As a result, instead of systematic development, continuous forcing of the Dnieper. It would be nice to get rid of such a tradition.

    Today, in addition to the demonstration An-32, Antonov has firm contracts with Azerbaijan (two An-78), Iraq (two An-48/158 and two An-78) and the first state order from the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine (three An -48) totaling about $ 350 million. So, most likely, the future of the enterprise is not hopeless. It remains only to prove that this is real, not virtual.


    And I think that everything is hopeless, because a huge number of related enterprises take part in the assembly of airplanes, but they won’t succeed in replacing everything (components) with analogues; they don’t have the strength or the means to develop a new airplane.

If you recall the history of the only engine in Russia today: The PS-90, then being certified in 1992, it only became more intelligible in 2006. In the modification of the PS-90A2.

It’s just there is no point in constantly pulling out the remnants of their potential from good, but old models. Unreasonably high costs for restoring production. .
