The Ministry of Defense agreed with the "Helicopters of Russia" on the order and timing of deliveries of new Mi-38

21
The Russian Defense Ministry jointly with the Russian Helicopters holding decided that the delivery of the new Mi-38 multifunctional helicopters will be included in the next armament program, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta.




The helicopter is produced at the Kazan plant - the first fuselage of the serial car has already been assembled there.

According to the holding, “the modification of the helicopter for the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation will be equipped with aggregates and components exclusively of domestic production.”

“The parties will conduct joint flight tests, during which the machine’s compliance with the requirements of the army will be checked. According to the test results, purchases of the Mi-38 helicopter for the needs of the VCS will be planned, ”the press service reported.

“We are aware of the need for our products to be independent from foreign supplies of components and assemblies. In this regard, we are working to ensure maximum import substitution within the production of helicopter technology, which is supplied to the Ministry of Defense as part of the state defense order, ”said the head of the holding, Alexander Mikheev.

“At the same time, the transport version of the Mi-38 helicopter allows increasing the functionality and expanding the area of ​​its application by creating specialized versions, including the“ Arctic ”version of the helicopter,” the message says.

Holding reference: “Mi-38 is a multi-purpose medium-duty helicopter. It is equipped with new highly economical TV7-117В engines of domestic production and an integrated digital flight navigation system with data display on five LCD displays. Mi-38 can be used for the transport of goods and passengers, used as a search and rescue helicopter and a flying hospital, as well as for flights over the water surface. Thanks to the technical solutions used, the Mi-38 surpasses other helicopters of its class in terms of carrying capacity, passenger capacity and basic flight performance. ”

      It is clear that the helicopter is not a strike, but armament should still be there. Something about him is not said in the article. Apparently, there is still no final decision on weapons.

        Yes, I don’t think it will be a problem. Hanging pylons is not the most difficult thing. The most important thing is to bring the car to mind good
        In general, as stated above, the Mi-38 can be used for the transport of goods and passengers, used as a search and rescue helicopter and a flying hospital, as well as for flights above the water surface.

    "The Ministry of Defense agreed with Russian Helicopters"
    What, then, agreed ...?! Barked, five or six "pink-cheeked dolphins" from the managerial staff for 6 years in the construction battalion! There, one agenda is enough ... Of course, suicides, flight to Europe, a crazy house (for 6 years) ... With me, in the 80s, the Minoborns did not agree, but gave an order soldier AND! I forgot ... Business ... Now, everyone agrees ... Well, he got old, before others had values ​​...

    I think the car will be in demand to the full once it will go into series and most importantly, it has been purely our development since the collapse of the Union, import substitution however, please the latest news more and more often, keep it up

    It is interesting to know what characteristics it differs from the Mi-8 and whether such a "licked" appearance will be detrimental to the military? Is it convenient, for example, as in the eight, to access the power plants for maintenance?

    Nice helicopter. Interesting price.
    It’s just that not long ago the ChSvtsy voiced the purchase price of Mi-8/17 for their needs, the price is around 8-9 lyamas of killed raccoons.

      Mi-10k, maybe? There is a Mi-26 version in the crane version, but it is not in demand. A clean Mi-10 is a specialized and not very necessary machine, with low weight return and increased vibration, difficulty in operation and tede.

      the likeness of the Mi-10 we are no longer releasing


      Mi-26 has long been successfully working as a crane.

      It is conceived and created as a replacement for And Mi-6, And Mi-10 (in both of its exotic forms).

      And a successful multipurpose came out.
      And the Mi-10 is a "narrow pilot"
      Although the design is a very stylish machine.

    What about the Mi-26T2? Or is there a need for more lifting? It is enough to put a domestic engine on it and it's normal. As far as I know, the engine is already at the test stage.

    My dear opponents, the question is not specific to this machine, the question was in the general direction of helicopter engineering.
    And on the account of whether we need a helicopter crane, oh, how to argue, but there will be no dispute, we have nothing to provide ...........
