    No, but what i find funny are the american fanboys on internet, calling everything that russia makes a clone of UH-60, AH-1,AH-64 but are know even so cocky to claim that such prototypes as S-97/X-2 are somehow innovative and superior, without knowing anything about rotor arrangement or that such stiff plastic rotors like S-97 uses are horrible for any battlefield where even 7.62mm rounds fly around but are always the first one to claim Ka-50/52 will be shot down with one single round to the rotor...that i find really funny.

    This is starting to look just like the smoothbore, autoloader, GLATGM debate were NATO-Stronk trolls were claiming they were terrible ideas, only for them to be eventually adopted by NATO military's; and now their claims against the co-axial rotors are now falling by the wayside. Funny you should bring up the fact that 7.62mm bullets will be flying around, seeing how DOD/Pentagon's lack of demand for BP glass for their Apaches leaves their cockpits vulnerable to that very caliber, and it's likely the S-97 will have the same problem (if there's no demand).

    However the biggest irony, the one that takes the cake is that the guy who founded Sikorsky helicopters was in fact a citizen of the Russian empire lmao!!! lol1

    Russian Helicopters plans new service centre network abroad

    MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. Aviation design and manufacturers Russian Helicopters will open servicing centers to form an international network, the company announced on Tuesday, joining exhibitors at a Moscow civil aviation show.

    "In 2017, we plan to open a servicing center for Mi-8/17 helicopters in Egypt; in 2016, a Mi-35M servicing centre in Brazil and a center for Mi-171SH in Peru," a statement said. "In 2018, we plan to complete reequipping the servicing centre for Mi-17V-5 in India," it added.

    "Today, around 8,700 Russian-made helicopters operate in more than 100 countries. One of the main priorities for the company is to provide reliable and affordable servicing support to our clients," said servicing operations deputy chief Yury Borisov.

    "Last year, five aircraft repair plants in Russian regions were transferred from the Ministry of Defense to our company," the announcement said."

    "More than that, new prospects for development were offered in October 2014 when Russian Helicopters, with the support of Rostech [Russian state corporation], gained the right to sell products for military purposes abroad," it went on.

    Vladimir Putin: Capital of United Aircraft Corporation will be increased by 100 billion rubles
    Russian Aviaton » Wednesday April 8, 2015 16:56 MSK

    President of Russia Vladimir Putin said that decision to increase the capital of United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) by 100 billion rubles has been made, TASS reports.

    “In fact we decided to increase the capital of our civil aviation sector, our UAC, by 100 billion rubles,” the President said at a meeting with businessmen.

    He noted that in USSR civil aviation was as important as the military one. “We need to boost the civil aviation segment; both segments should be developed simultaneously,” the President noted and advised the businessmen to join this work.

    I saw this story a few days ago but lost the link, here it was reposted at flightglobal...
    It's seemingly utilizing capital from the joint RU-CHI investment fund,
    and probably leveraging the overall recapitalization of UAC/Superjet program...???
    I would take it that thru this, SSJ would find more favor in CHI market as "domestically approved",
    ARJ-21 is hardly at the same level, at least on all but the shortest routes...
    Interesting to see how local production involvement might develop,
    possibly with future re-engine/re-wing, and/or with future 130-seat stretch...

    http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/new-russian-chinese-lessor-aims-for-100-superjets-412103/

    New Russian-Chinese lessor aims for 100 Superjets

    Russian and Chinese parties have tentatively agreed to establish a new leasing company for Sukhoi Superjet 100s which aims to build a fleet of 100 aircraft and focus on sales to Asia.

    The leasing company will be based in the Xixian in Shaanxi province.

    It is the subject of a four-way framework agreement between United Aircraft, Chinese company New Century International Leasing, plus a Russian-Chinese investment fund and Xixian’s local management committee.

    United Aircraft says that, under the pact, the joint lessor will acquire 100 Superjets worth $3 billion – more than twice the number of delivered airframes – over a three-year period.

    The local Chinese administration will support the plan by providing land on which to set up the required infrastructure for operating and maintaining the type.

    This infrastructure will include a flight-training and servicing centre, spares warehouses and possible interior fitting and painting facilities.

    United Aircraft president Yuri Slyusar says that the agreement has resulted from efforts to “rethink the approach” to marketing the Superjet internationally.

    He says that the agreement, which has been reached quickly, will strengthen the prospects for the Russian domestic civil aviation industry.

    Slyusar adds that the venture will result in a “highly-competitive” leasing operation allowing the Superjet to take a “significant share” of rapidly-developing aviation markets in China and south-east Asia.

    Is anybody familiar with the current situation of Russian cooperation with Antonov re: An-148?
    Antonov is now announcing they are launching An-178 (cargo ramp version) with (Azeri) Silk Way Airlines as 1st customer.
    Would An-178 depend on Russian cooperation, or is Antonov trying to replace those suppliers somehow?

    According to the Antonov rep at a recent show, cooperation on civilian projects is still on-going....but he was saying he was hopeful it would not be affected by political decissions.

    However, there is sceptism regarding the capacity of Antonov to serially produce any aircraft under current conditions....they were struggling to do that even before the start of the war

    Here's one of the most detailed article's I've seen on most recent Superjet deal in China:

    http://www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/air-transport/2015-05-13/uac-starts-china-leasing-group-boost-superjet-sales
    UAC Starts China Leasing Group To Boost Superjet Sales

    The deal seems similar in some ways to the earlier announced one (1-2 yrs ago?) which never materialized,
    I believe that was some random private conglomerate supposedly involved, but this also involves regional government,
    as well as the leasing company already involved in aviation business, so seems alot more solid.

    Are they studying a feasibility to turn Il-76 in sort of a "MC-130" equivalent for special operations infiltration and exfiltration... that would be great.
    Anyone any more info?

    Look a idea. Take some photons from a laser. Then pass them to a amplifier. Then they can be used as radio waves. Powerfull ones.

    That looks ridiculous tiny.

    If you read the markings on the bombs you will see P-50T at the top line, which means it is a 50kg practise bomb... it makes a big flash when it hits but does no damage other than direct impact damage... it is used for training and in this case testing.

    Operationally they would use much bigger much heavier bombs... and indeed possibly guided bombs or even rockets.

    I would imagine that a 150kg HE warhead would be effective against a range of targets, so the laser guided version of the S-25 heavy unguided rocket would have plenty of power and punch, would be accurate enough to hit point targets ahead of the aircraft instead of below or behind the aircraft which would be an advantage against a 30mm or 35mm anti aircraft gun position detected at the last minute... whether camouflaged or mobile on a vehicle... the ability to launch a rocket with laser guidance able to defeat a heavy bunker or heavy armoured vehicle 3-4km ahead of the aircraft would be very useful.

    Look a idea. Take some photons from a laser. Then pass them to a amplifier. Then they can be used as radio waves. Powerfull ones.

    Passing photons from any source whether it is a laser beam or sunlight and passing them through an amplifier results in a brighter light, not a radio wave.

    Image intensification scopes use photon amplifiers to allow a user to see in the dark...

    Bombs are so obsolete. Having 4 of them is just inane. It would be better if they mounted some cruise missiles instead.
    Hypersonic or subsonic.

    It does not look like those mounting points could hold 500 kg or higher bombs.

    That's either an experiment or a left over from Soviet times.....some of the An-72's have been seen with bombs and rockets as well

    That is the An-72P patrol aircraft designed for border patrol duties with wing mounted rocket pods for warning shots and a twin barrel 23mm cannon pod near the main undercarriage, and of course 100kg bombs released out the rear cargo area. they are used against smugglers and illegal fishing boats...

    the use of bombs on the Il-76 used for dropping parachutists is to suppress enemy fire power during a drop... which means the first plane starts releasing troops and vehicles and spots a target ahead shooting up at it... it places a laser target marker on the muzzle flash or radar source and releases a couple of laser guided 250kg or 500kg bombs. It doesn't need to be able to destroy Saddams bunker... with high accuracy weapons you don't need that much power for most battlefield targets.

    even if a single M1 abrams tank is detected then a laser guided bomb will deal with the threat like no other weapon could...

    Bombs are so obsolete. Having 4 of them is just inane. It would be better if they mounted some cruise missiles instead.
    Hypersonic or subsonic.

    What would a troop transport plane do with cruise missiles?

    Think of this as being like an Mi-17 with rocket pods... it is to suppress enemy fire power during a landing...

    They are just testing some ideas... who knows what they might end up doing... How about a belt fed 120mm Nona gun/mortar system with laser guided shells...

    As far as i know photons act like particle when they meet nothing and act like wave when they hit a material. Now would be easy that to put something at photons exit to make them being waves but....is this change permanent or only when they meet matter? Also could be a idea to hit matter whit photons (or better said particles) to obtain a electromagnetic field. I know that qt some interactions a electromagnetic field apear. Or waves i dont remember
    Particle interactions give all kind of stuff that could be usefull[/quote]

    Maibe if we study the moment in wich a photon became a wave we can discover if we can make them waves. Lets think that same radio waves that are maked from photons (aka when they are waves) are produced by a antenna. So combining what is happen in a antenna whit what is happen to free photons we may get some device that could make waves from a laser beam.
