    When i told my officers this would be a great idea in case of prolonged war, they told me i am "overthinking it".

    "Russian Helicopters, part of State Corporation Rostec, to showcase a mobile training simulator of the Mi-8MTV1 helicopter at KADEX military exhibition. The cutting-edge technology allows pilots to simulate flights in an environment close to reality.

    The Mi-8MTV1 mobile special training simulator that unveils at KADEX-2016 has a cabin, which is a full-size mockup with a visual system and a unique motion system, as well as workstations for an instructor and an operator. The unit is mounted on a wheeled chassis, which allows to transport the system quickly without dismantling it. The Mi-8MTV1 simulator also has a self-contained electric power plant that can be used when there is no electricity.



    “The upgraded mobile special simulator allows to train pilots for around the clock flights, in any weather conditions, and for operating helicopters in emergency situations,” said VR-Technologies Design Bureau’s CEO Alexander Okhonko. The upgraded simulator has a more powerful computer system and a more advanced flight mission control interface, as well as a new motion system.

    The simulator’s new visual system displays real-life and high-definition terrain images including such small details as local flora. In addition, the system allows to simulate flights over sea. And the motion system simulates longitudinal, lateral and vertical acceleration during helicopter movement, taxiing, takeoff and landing and brings training close to reality."

    Russia launches new engine production for military helicopters

    The United Engine Corp. has launched production of TV7-117V engines for the newest Mi-38 multi-purpose helicopter, as well as for the Ka-52 and Mi-28 attack helicopters. Previously, these rotorcrafts used engines made by Ukraine's Motor Sich plant.

    The decision to design and produce Russia's own technology was made after the introduction of U.S. and EU sanctions and the complete rupture of military and technical cooperation between Russia and Ukraine in 2014. The original plan was to equip the latest Mi-38s with engines made by U.S. aerospace manufacturer Pratt & Whitney for supplies to Russia's European and American partners.

    The helicopter can carry out transport and landing tasks for the armed forces, oil and gas companies and search and rescue services. The Russian Helicopters design and manufacturing company has received a series of orders from the Russian Ministry of Defense and commercial entities for the production of the new engine.

    Dmitry Safonov, the Izvestia daily newspaper's military correspondent, told RBTH that the TV7-117V engine ensures flight safety during operations in any weather conditions.

    "It is able to achieve a force of 2,800 to 3,750 horsepower depending on the operating mode," Safonov said. "The developer is currently designing around 200 engine modifications for different models of helicopters and airplanes."

    According to Safonov, this engine can be used in other helicopters weighing up to 15 tons.

    Russia’s United Engine is gearing up to develop a new engine for the Mil Mi-26 helicopter that it believes will lift the performance of the already enormous 56t maximum take-off weight rotorcraft. Based on the Aviadvigatel PD-14 turbofan, which will power the Irkut MC-21 narrowbody airliner, the planned PD-12V will replace the Mi-26’s existing 11,400shp (8,500kW) Motor Sich D-136 turboshafts.

    As well as potentially offering a performance boost, the new powerplants will allow Russian Helicopters to be less reliant on engines sourced from Ukrainian industry.

    Writing in the latest issue of Russian Helicopters’ corporate magazine, Alexander Artyukhov, United Engine chief executive, says it is now waiting for “a tender for the replacement of the Mi-26 engine”. “According to our evaluation, the modernisation of the Mi-26 helicopter by equipping it with the PD-12V will ensure an increase in transporting capacities of the rotorcraft and a decrease in its operating costs,” he says.

    He promises it will be “the most powerful turboshaft engine in the world”, which will offer “better performance characteristics, including the power rating”. In addition, as it is a derivative of the PD-14, this will “decrease the time necessary to develop the PD-12V”, says Artyukhov.

    Elsewhere, development activities continue on the Klimov TV7-117V engines that will power the 15.6t Mi-38 heavy twin. Engine endurance tests are ongoing, says Artyukhov, and “the work to set up serial production has already been going on”, he says.

    United Engine has so far been contracted to deliver 50 units of the TV7 to Russian Helicopters.

    Certification for the utility transport variant of the Mi-38 was achieved in late 2015; approval for a passenger transport version is expected in 2017.

    New Mi-26 in Khabarovsk

    As reported by the press service of the Eastern Military District on August 3, 2017, the connection of the army aviation of the Eastern Military District (VVO), based in the Khabarovsk Territory, was supplemented with the world's largest, mass-produced Mi-26 helicopter.

     The crew of the Mi-26 flew over 10 thousand km from Rostov-on-Don, where the manufacturing plant is located, to the airfield of permanent basing, performed 8 refuellings on the itinerary.

    Upon arrival in the air corps, the commander of the crew reported on the successful flight, representatives of the command of the unit congratulated the personnel of the Mi-26 squadron on the arrival of new aircraft.

    Mi-26 replenished the fleet of military aviation units of the district of heavy transport helicopters already in service.

    According to the tradition established in the mix, the pilots installed a symbolic talisman in the cockpit of the new helicopter - a soft toy in the form of a plush tiger cub.



    The bmpd comment. Thus, we are talking about the arrival in the newly formed 18th brigade of army aviation of the 11th Krasnoznamennaya Army Air Force and Air Defense VVO at the airfield Khabarovsk (the brigade was formed on December 1, 2016 on the basis of the stationed there 573rd Aviation Base of Army Aviation) heavy transport helicopter Mi-26 new construction JSC "Rostvertol" (Rostov-on-Don, part of the JSC "Russian Helicopters").

    The Mi-26 helicopter with the tail number "85 blue" (serial number 34001212653, serial number 34-03), is supposedly the second Mi-26 helicopter built for Rosteertol in 2017 for the Russian Defense Ministry. Earlier in March 2017, the Ministry of Defense was given a new Mi-26 helicopter with the registration number "80 white" (registration number RF-13382, serial number 34001212655, serial number 34-05), which was received by the 15th brigade of army aviation 6 The Leningrad Red Banner Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Western Military District at the Aerodrome Ostrov (Pskov Region) (it is reported that in fact this board is constantly based on the airfield of Levashovo, Leningrad Region).

    Supplies of Mi-26 helicopters of new construction to the Ministry of Defense of Russia were resumed after a two-year hiatus at the end of 2016, when the helicopter with the serial number "70 red" (serial number 34001212654, serial number 34-04) was handed over to Rostvertol in the "Arctic" Performance, which was part of the grouping of the 45th Army Air Force and Air Defense of the Northern Fleet.

    Earlier, under the contract for 2010 for 18 military helicopters of the new construction, 17 helicopters were produced by the Ministry of Defense of Russia in 2011-2014, (the 18th helicopter in this contract was the above-mentioned helicopter with the aircraft number "70 red" (34-04) in the "Arctic "Performance, surrendered in 2016).

    In April 2016, the Ministry of Defense of Russia signed a contract with JSC Helicopters of Russia for two regular Mi-26 helicopters, which should be delivered in 2018.

    In addition, it was reported that at the end of 2017 Rostvertol should have built the first copy of the modernized Mi-26 helicopter in the kit proposed by the Russian Defense Ministry.
