    An aviation division of Russian air forces will be established in Crimea
    Russian Aviaton » Friday November 21, 2014 13:52 MSK

    A new aviation division is being established as a part of the 4th Command of Air Forces and Air Defense Forces (Southern Military District); it will be stationed in Crimea, Interfax Zapad reports with reference to the General Staff of the Russian armed forces.

    “At present the 27th composite aviation division is being formed; its headquarters will be located in Belbek,” the source said. “The word “composite” here means that this division will operate fighters, strike-fighters, reconnaissance and transport aircraft as well as bombers and helicopters,” the source explained. Until quite recently a regiment of Russian air forces was stationed at Belbek airfield.

    According to Russian Minister of Defense, Sergey Shoygu, the full-scale stand-alone military units will be established in Crimea. “Analysis of possible scenarios makes us pay attention to combat readiness of military units of the Southern Military District in order to ensure the safety of our country and its allies in the South-East region. One of our top-priority objectives is to form the full-scale stand-alone military units in Crimea,” the minister said.

    People were questioning the validity of a joint venture between Russia and China over creating a more powerful version of the Mi-26, well no longer because it's now confirmed that there working on creating a more powerful successor to the Mi-26 with an outstanding double the payload capacity which would between 40 and 45 ton max payload:

    Russia and China will create a super-heavy helicopter

    The new machine will exceed its carrying capacity of the largest in its class Mi-26



    Russia and China will be engaged in the development of super-heavy helicopter, carrying capacity is twice the largest in its class Mi-26.

    As told reporters chairman of the Russian-Chinese Commission on preparation of regular meetings of Heads of Government, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, this is a new model helicopter, as the Chinese side requests the technical parameters that differ from the existing Mi-26.

    "It has now become clear in what segment of the Chinese side would like to receive heavy helicopter. Judging by the fact that they ask, it is about two times larger than the carrying capacity of our existing Mi-26 "- Rogozin said, quoted by the agency" RIA Novosti ".

    The Mi-26 is the world's largest serial transport helicopter. Its capacity is up to 20 tons of payload.

    "If the Chinese side requests the specifications, so different from the Mi-26, it seems, it should not be the Mi-26, and the focus should be on creating a super-heavy helicopter", - said Rogozin.

    Dmitry Rogozin also expressed the hope that the project superheavy helicopter can be successful, and did not agree with the estimates of skeptics who claim that this helicopter is not in demand on the market today.

    Chinese experts, according to him, ready to hold consultations on the draft joint development and production of super-heavy helicopter.

    Recall Rogozin on Tuesday took part in a working meeting with the co-chairman of the Russian-Chinese Commission for the Regular Meetings of Heads of Government, Vice Premier Wu Yi Wang Yan.

    The Russian delegation included the Deputy Minister of Economic Development, regional development, transport, agriculture, as well as representatives of other ministries and departments.

    Mi-26 - the world's largest multi-purpose serial transport helicopter. Intended for transportation of bulky cargo inside the cargo cabin and on the external load, as well as medical evacuation, rescue works. Capable of carrying loads up to 20 tons at a distance of 400 km at an altitude of 1500 m.

    Holding " Helicopters of Russia "is the only developer and manufacturer of helicopters in Russia and one of the few companies in the world have the capacity to design, manufacture, testing and maintenance of modern civil and military helicopters.

    It should be given top priority, because proper scramjet technology could enhance everything from cruise missiles and ICBM warheads, to interceptor aircraft, to tank shells.

    Crimea’s Defense Network Adds 14 Fighter Jets

    14 fighter jets, including fourth-generation Su-27SM's and Su-30's, are scheduled to land in Crimea’s Belbek military air base, set to station Russia’s modernized air forces.

    MOSCOW, November 26 (Sputnik) — 14 fighter jets are scheduled to land in Crimea’s Belbek military air base, Capt. 1st Rank Vyacheslav Trukhachev, a spokesman for Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, told RIA Novosti.

    The fighter jets are comprised of ten upgraded Su-27SM's and four Su-30's. All of them are fourth-generation fighter jets. Four of the aircraft deployed in Crimea are newly manufactured, according to Trukhachev.

    These Sukhoi Su-27 SM Flanker fighters will serve with the 62nd Fighter Regiment of the 27th Combined Air Division of the Russian Air Force at Belbek airfield near Sevastopol.

    “Ten aircraft have clocked flight hours, are maintained in good condition and will now perform tasks in the sky above Crimea. They arrive under the program of deployment of a full-fledged formation of Russia’s Armed Forces,” said the spokesman.

    The majority of Sevastopol residents have never seen such aircraft and are likely to notice them, Trukhachev added.

    Earlier it was reported that Belbek airfield will be renovated to station Russia’s modernized air forces.

    Hopefully 2015 will be the last year for delivery of Mi-28N.

    Hopefully in 2016 the Mi-28M will be ready... or Mi-28NM.

    Here's some truly exciting news in hypersonic technology research and development:





    "Summing up the results of our study, we can already make certain predictions. We have described techniques can be applied not only to launch small satellites into orbit, but also for additional acceleration of supersonic aircraft, which can reach speeds in excess of 10 Mach " - reported in Rezunkov press release of the Optical Society.

    Russian engineers have proposed the concept of the laser rocket engine



    ...This is interesting, and maybe whats needed to accelerate (pun not intended) the Zircon program.

    So far my ideas on how to succesfully create a scram jet cruise missile:

    1.) A '2' stage hybrid rocket-scram jet missile, where the first stage is a powerful solid (or even liquid) fast burning rocket fuel to accelerate the missile quickly, not unlike the rocket fuel for the Moscow ABM's missiles. The 2nd stage would be the actual scramjet engine, which in theory should increase in performance the faster the first stage rocket fuel takes it. This may prove to be the simplest as well as quickest solution to a means to an end.

    2.) A hybrid electromagnetic-scramjet missile. The missile is fired by a electromagnetic gun using explosively generated batteries as the propellant, which will aid the scramjet with a hypersonic head start.

    3.) And lastly a laser assisted scramjet missile.


    ...I think the best thing that will come from the Zircon progarm isn't the missile itself, but instead the transfer of scramjet technology to other programs! russia

    Improvements in different areas feed other areas... high temperature aluminium can be used in places where steel or titanium previously was needed making it lighter and cheaper... with scramjets having no upper speed limit literally the sky is no longer the limit....

    Rogozin: India will produce at Mi-17 and Ka-226T

    NEW DELHI, Dec. 11 - RIA Novosti. India is in agreement with the Russian Federation will produce on its territory Mi-17 and Ka-226T, and the cars of family "Kamov" will be produced up to 400 a year, told reporters on Thursday, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.

    An agreement on the issue of helicopters was reached after talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who passed on Thursday.

    "There are two contracts. One - Mi-17, in which they (Indian side) really need, and the second - the Ka-226T. It's a big contract to build on the territory of India" - Rogozin said. It is planned to produce annually about 400 pieces.

    Deputy Prime Minister said that initially, when India announced a tender for the helicopters of this type, the main competitor of the Russian aircraft was a helicopter "Eurocopter". However, he said, due to the unique characteristics of the Ka-226 and special requests of the Indian side the tender was canceled and it was agreed on the deployment of India's production of Russian cars.

    Rogozin said that the helicopter will be in the sea and the mountain modification.

    Excellent news... the Mi-17 is a very good helo for extreme conditions and local production should make maintainence and spares much easier to deal with.

    the Ka-226T looks like a unique modular little helo with enormous potential... I am sure it will perform very well in India... but I wonder if it will use that French engine or if they might develop a new engine in light of problems with supply from France.

    The rate of production of T-50 will be 13-14 aircraft per year

    http://vpk.name/news/123249_temp_proizvodstva_t50_sostavit_1314_samoletov_v_god.html


    According to the deputy head of the directorate of military aircraft programs of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) Vladislav Goncharenko, air force Russia to 2020, ie four years from the date of delivery of the first production cars will receive 55 fighter T-50 PAK FA. The first production delivery PAK FA in troops planned in 2016. Thus, the rate of production of the T-50 will be 13-14 aircraft per year. For comparison, the peak production of American F-22 "Raptor" was 24 aircraft (in 2007), the 100th F-22 was made at the 5th year from the date of delivery of the first production aircraft.

    "Until 2020 is expected to supply 55 aircraft of this type," - he said on the radio station "Echo of Moscow".

    "Who built up prototypes are tested, the state tests. This work is progressing according to schedule," - said Goncharenko.

    PAK FA - Russia's fifth-generation multirole fighter developed by a division of the KLA - the Sukhoi Design Bureau, where it passes under the designation T-50. Total production is the manufacture and on KnAAZe - eight T-50, five of them are ready and fly.

    Aircraft deliveries

    In addition, UAC plans in 2015 to produce and transmit to the troops on state defense orders over 105 different aircraft.

    "There is a total probability that the plan the state defense order in 2014 will be 100%. The plan for 2015 even higher than the figures of the year - more than 105 aircraft," - said Goncharenko.

    In 2011, 19 aircraft were delivered, and every year the number of aircraft for the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation doubled. In 2013, the KLA put troops in combat and 68 combat training aircraft and 1 transport aircraft.

    "This year we have planned to supply about 100 combat, military transport aircraft and special. At the moment, the plan deliveries made by 80%," - he said.

    The remaining equipment is already out of the shops and final assembly goes through various tests. In addition, the Novosibirsk Aviation Plant over the plan this year is to deliver two Su-34 Russian Air Force.

    The development of drones

    In addition, according to Goncharenko, new drums and reconnaissance drones will be established in Russia in 2018.

    "Work commissioned by the Ministry of Defence. I think it's 2018," - he said.

    In this direction, the KLA today is a very large-scale development, said the representative of the corporation.

    "We have a direction and there are already flying new devices. And it's not air models that allow us to see the battlefield, but this applies primarily large reconnaissance, strike systems based on drones," - said Goncharenko.

    He also said that the Defense Ministry signed a contract with the KLA to carry out development work to create light military transport aircraft Il-112V.

    "This year contract to carry out development work on the development of light military transport aircraft Il-112V. And 2018 is already planned delivery of these aircraft to the troops," - he said.
    The aircraft is planned to replace the An-24 and An-26.

    "These aircraft are of different generations, they can not be compared. In IL-112V other avionics, engines, other possibilities for use. Other aerodynamic characteristics of the aircraft," - listed Goncharenko, recalling that the carrying capacity of the new aircraft remains within 6 tons.

    Thus, it can be used to perform tactical transport of personnel as well as light weapons and military equipment.

    Late last year, Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said that the state defense order for 2014 will be allocated 7.9 billion rubles. to complete the development work on the Il-112V. According to Borisov, deliveries scheduled to begin in 2017. According to the current state armaments program, 62 of these aircraft to replace obsolete An-26.

    Meanwhile, in July, the general director of "IL" Yuri Yudin said that the IL-112 will rise into the sky until November 1, 2016, "if the contract will be signed in the near future."

    AVIACOMPLEX them. Ilyushin won the competition to design the light military transport aircraft in 2003. Then it was assumed that the Russian military will receive Il-112 in 2006, but the timing of the project is constantly shifted, and in 2010 the Russian Defense Ministry has ceased to finance it.

    Modernization of the long-range aircraft

    In addition, the KLA launched a program to modernize the long-range aircraft and transport IL-76.

    According to him, under a state contract with JSC "Tupolev" initiated work on upgrading long-range aircraft Tu-22M3 and Tu-95MS and Tu-160.

    "To date, according to the plans in 2014 we have upgraded this year, 10 aircraft of strategic aviation," - he said.

    When upgrading replaced most critical blocks, avionics systems, as well as provided the use of new aircraft weapons / bombs /, said the representative of the corporation.

    Speaking of transport aircraft, Goncharenko reminded that started a program of modernization of aircraft failure of IL-76 to IL-76MDM options.

    "At this time, conducted development work, the timing of its end - in 2016 and in 2017 will already be held modernization of aircraft, which are now in the ranks of the Air Force," - he said.

    IL-76MDM get new avionics, they completely replace complex avionics.

    "The contract with the Defense Ministry to supply 39 Il-76MD-90A until 2020. The first machine of this year will be delivered to the troops," - reminded Goncharenko.

    I say that is a good # per year. Keeps production stretched out, keeps funds stretched out, and keeps production opened for other, cheaper aircrafts.

    Niw I am patiently waiting in excitement for MiG-31 replacement. This should be exciting (I hope) and Pak Da.

    Now, with currency issues, might be a good time to explain to the developers in the country that value of currency to usd has no excuse for increase prices, as all parts come from Russia anyway. There will be inflation so hopefully it wont change prices too much.
