Media: US Air Force is looking for a replacement for a veteran helicopter

76
The US Air Force is looking for a replacement for the Vietnam War veteran - a helicopter UH-1 Huey, which intend to withdraw from the armed forces, reports RIA News Post Washington Post.




"At the moment, the Air Force is considering all the options, since it is necessary to satisfy all needs," said the representative of the USAF Anne Stefanek.

For the first time, the question of replacing cars was raised at the beginning of 1990's. At that time, the choice was made in favor of the UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters. UH-1 remained in the Air Force, but without the right to participate in combat operations.

About 60 UH-1 are currently in operation. They perform various tasks not related to combat work. According to the newspaper, "some of them are on duty at sites with intercontinental ballistic missiles and perform search and rescue operations."

Help agency: “Multipurpose UH-1 Huey was adopted in 1959 year and well established itself during the Vietnam War, after which it became one of the main helicopters of the US Air Force. Its payload is: 14 soldiers or 6 stretcher and 1 accompanying or 1759 kg of cargo in the cab or on the suspension. The total number of helicopters of all modifications produced since the beginning of mass production, including the licensed release outside the United States, is more than 16000 units. ”

    And what does their UH-60 Black Hawk not like? Can't they produce 60 helicopters and replace them with UH-1?

            Well, then, if Estonians came up with this, they will deserve the title of Grand Master of the Information War, there’s nothing for mattresses to do here.
            And in general, I connected through the Yandex news widget of the Russian news site "World Review" as it is in the title of the site with an article about the helicopter. So it is hardly Estonian non-birth-making. On the other hand, there is no author's signature, and the material can be ripped off from anywhere. It would be nice to publish this article on VO. Here, in addition to the urapatriots, there are enough qualified and unbiased specialists to, as the Bible says, separate the wheat from the chaff.

In addition, they jump from topic to topic. Suddenly, about the planes begin, and the conclusion - MI-28 is bad.

                Despite the emotionality, it is somehow pale looking in comparison with this:
                If you exaggerate everything that happened around the gearbox, we can only say that it was too lightened, hoping that it would be justified. But any mechanism has such a concept as strength and resource - this is exactly what the new VR-28 gearbox lacked. In short, when in 1982 the first Mi-28 took off, there were two TV3-117 engines with a total capacity of 4400 hp. and the main gearbox, which let through (think about it!) only 3300 hp. Take away from here 12-15 percent of the power that goes to the tail rotor, and it turns out that in order to create lift on the newest Mi-28, it only took 2800 hp, while the mi-24 helicopter (created in at the same design bureau 13 years earlier) he had a much more serious power of 3700 hp to create lifting power. Yes, my test pilot Hero of the Soviet Union, deeply respected by me, Gurgen Rubenovich Karapetyan even performed “barrels” and “Nesterov's loops on the new Mi-28 ", But the essence of the issue from this is not resolved ylo.

                As a result, after scandalous intrigues and sworn assurances of the inevitability of a “cure” for the capricious gearbox, the Mi-28 was admitted to state tests, which, as expected, did not pass. Then the lobbyists of the Rostov Helicopter Plant organized comparative tests with the Ka-50 single-seat combat helicopter that appeared at the same time. The result of these tests is known: in 1995, the Ka-50 was officially adopted by the Air Force (for comparison, the Mi-28N was adopted only in 2009). And the Mi-28 was returned for revision. But it was necessary to return it to the scrap, and create a new car.

      Well, roughly, like replacing a "two" with a "eight" is not always beneficial. Our gelding of the city also inspects the garbage dumps from above, not from the Mi-8, but from some imported small fly chipper smile

      And for the army, a helicopter of less than 11 tons is not serious. True, in the light of the current tactics of army aviation, a separate preliminary reconnaissance vehicle is needed - but this can be done by drones.

        I don’t know what the Mi-1 was doing in the army, but in DOSAAF it was well used as a training machine. I still remember that in the 70s we arrived at the Russian Championship in model aircraft sports in Izhevsk, and lived at the airport in tents, and now from six in the morning they will start the engines and work out one or the other for almost the whole day, and they there were many.
        Well, now that, let our striped eights buy, the car is reliable, proven. Better not find. It’s like the An-2, they just didn’t figure out what to replace, but there is nothing better in terms of price-quality and reliability, to kill on it, you have to try very hard.

          When fully loaded by weight and if the engine life is running out, then very often the Mi-8 take off in an "airplane" fashion. At one time I had to fly them very often at work. Once there was barely enough stripe adapted for An-2.

            I think that when the helicopter engines are moving, they can "swallow" more air, thereby increasing the engine power for takeoff. There are no wings, so the airplane term is not entirely correct, but with a run-off it would be more appropriate (something like that). IMHO. hi

      Helicopters MI-6, MI-8, MI-26, when loaded inside the fuselage to the maximum take-off weight (and sometimes the actual take-off weight exceeds the maximum allowable for these take-off conditions), take off exclusively in an airplane way, because there is not enough NV thrust. Therefore, we cannot do without wheeled chassis in our conditions. As for landing on a swampy area, such as a tundra with a surface uneven in strength, in this case runners are preferable. That is why "Yankees" began to use helicopter runners in VIETNAM

        No, professor, the thrust of engines in our machines is high, in some, the characteristics of engines are even higher than American and English cars. The issue of convenience is controversial, the option of using wheels is better (albeit more expensive). If you take taxiing alone, already.

          No. Too lazy to look for numbers, but precisely because the specific thrust of Soviet helicopters was lower, I had to make a wheeled chassis in order to be able to take off in an airplane. I have never seen a Mi-6 or Mi-24 take off by helicopter to an airfield at an altitude of 1500 m. The Mi-26 took off.

          On the other hand, I saw how the technicians suffered with the Cobras dragging them from place to place. The wheels would not hurt.

            Yes, I would argue with numbers, but let us dwell on the fact that some of the wide Mi line will be out of competition, due to the lack of analogues among the Americans. Specific thrust, by the way, does not affect the take-off weight, the helicopter pilot will take off in the absence of wind at maximum thrust in any case during reloading, or "wind in jerks". Yes, taxiing, it was no coincidence that I wrote this, ours will reach the hangar on its own, and cobras, for example, need rigging technicians.
            And not only taxiing. Wheels are more convenient, albeit more expensive, but it’s obvious.

                The power of the engine (s), the wind, and the height of the takeoff above sea level affects. The helicopter at maximum payload accelerates the engine to maximum, for a more complete definition there is the term take-off thrust. And thrust-to-weight ratio, or power-to-weight ratio is more applicable to aircraft rocket engines, especially for naval aviation and for transporters.
                They cannot be blamed for the lack of pragmatism.

                They have a different doctrine, they always worked from jump airfields or from AUG. And there just skids are preferable.

                From the above, one can conclude that the Americans are making many secondary options for modernizing helicopters and more. Here is just one problem that all these solutions do not change the fundamentally important aspects of the flight. The pinwheel, as it was, remains essentially the same.

                    The US Department of Defense decided to deploy the AH-64 Apache helicopter combat unit to Alaska, and in September the first twenty vehicles arrived at a permanent location in Fort Wainwright. Due to the climatic features of Alaska, helicopters had to be modernized - the main change was the installation of skis. Skis with dimensions 1,5 × 0,9 m are attached to the wheels of the main landing gear, and one ski with dimensions 0,9 × 0,9 m is attached to the tail support. The skis have slots for the wheels and are mounted on the chassis so that the wheel protrudes below skiing, which allows you to operate helicopters from the ground and concrete. Previously, UH-60 Black Hawk and CH-47 Chinook helicopters of the 1st strike and reconnaissance battalion, also deployed in Alaska, underwent a similar modernization. Helicopter skis are manufactured by Airglas, and the cost of one set is $ 15–000.
                    Skis mounted on helicopter landing gears are used year-round, because after thawing the soil in Alaska becomes soft, and when landing a helicopter, the wheels can go deep into it. In an emergency, the helicopter crew can dismantle the skis and use them when assembling the toboggan.

            Somehow in the Kuril Islands they got a little hunting. They took two large bears on take-off, hooked a tree, (about my diaper separately), so the flyers did so, they sawed off the bent blade right after the bend, the benefit bent about half a meter, and the other four were also sawn off along the length of the bent one. Very strained with a bang and crash but flew to the house. Nearby about 50 km. After that, MI 8 is the best helicopter for me.

    I am absolutely sure that Americans and others alike understand that the ideal option would be to get a workhorse that fits into the maintenance costs and the cost of the machine itself at the veteran's level, but with improved parameters and speed and carrying capacity and flight efficiency. But! Alas, there cannot be such new helicopters in essence, since they will also use propeller blades, the same principles of power transmission from the engine. And the engine itself is cheaper with better parameters, well, how not to create it. Therefore, "we all go in a round dance in a circle." It means that only the concept of new engines combined with a propeller can be that "ball" that sooner or later will lead to a positive result or what one dreams of.

A good pedestal for her and museums. Now the role of the turntables has been narrowed down, the UAVs have taken over the bulk of the work.

      I think that you are deeply mistaken. But not in terms of the fact that helicopters do not have development prospects further on the propellers, but in terms of the fact that according to the principle of movement and energy ease of flight in the air using new principles, the difference between a helicopter and an airplane will practically disappear. That is, the aircraft will be able to possess the flight qualities of a helicopter, and vice versa.

        The problem of such symbiosis has been struggling for almost longer than helicopters exist. And there is no tangible result yet.

          You are talking about properties that themselves are implied in our development. Acoustic noise in an air or gas dynamic environment is equivalent to cavitation in an aqueous medium. Therefore, one of the criteria in the modeling and study of the working device. precisely such properties of the absence of noise were observed. By the way, with a certain rotor diameter at about 20000 rpm. And the second parameter of energy efficiency was obvious in that, with a drive motor power of about 500 watts, the productivity in terms of pumped air volume was orders of magnitude higher than with a standard blade design, and, accordingly, traction parameters. With all this, the calculations and analysis show. that at the tip you can achieve speeds several orders of magnitude higher than the speed of sound, without fear of destruction of the surfaces of the expiration. This also corresponds to the possibility of increasing traction parameters without increasing the mass dimensions of the rotor and its components.

    Well make a super drive, so what? Speed ​​even in the future 500km / h on fuel consumption and, accordingly, on the range is better not to remember. A tiltrotor, this one [eq is only a view in profile. In combat conditions Two huge circles of rotating blades aren’t like ice (how will the Osprey act if he shoots one of the three blades?). How many best helicopters can handle overload? 3-4 g? And this is in combat vehicles. It's just that no one is ready to invest in some kind of new idea, they are afraid of losing money.

      I agree that the final model of the device can be positioned in the entirety of calculating the dimension and the material used. But! The physical processes themselves and their algorithms obey the analysis not only of numerical calculations, but also of the justification of the vector and the potential of interaction of the jets in the stream. This is important for understanding where a beneficial effect comes from. Therefore, to implement the project at the technological level, everything is simple, but physics and math. analysis is not for simpletons.

    1.5 liters. In approximate calculations, the potential can be safely discarded as a probabilistic event. At the same time, modeling the vector of the effect of the flow on the surface in simplified mathematical models, one can achieve good numerical results. Approximating the obtained data, one can not go deeper into the matanalysis, being content with the obtained data.
