    Rostec has reached an agreement to sell some of its stake in Russian Helicopters to a consortium of Russian and Middle Eastern investment funds for a figure of around $600 million.

    The move is designed to inject additional capital into the owner of the Mil and Kamov brands to allow it to develop new models and expand into new markets, says the Russian state-owned holding company.

    As well as the stake sale, Russian Helicopters will additionally issue new shares, Rostec says. Both will be acquired by the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) and a number of Middle Eastern funds, giving them around 25% of the company's capital.

    Sergei Chemezov, Rostec director general, says the divestment will “provide Russian Helicopters opportunities to enter new markets and gain a foothold in them.”

    “We believe that the investment of RDIF and partners will allow Russian Helicopters to accelerate the implementation of its investment program, reduce debt and strengthen its position in the international market,” says Kirill Dmitriev, director general of RDIF.

    Still I am wondering why Russia so much believes in foreign investors? Did French sold out Arabs or US their military hi tech companies? or Chinese or Israelis?

    The general belief is that if said middle eastern country purchases stake (For some reason, I would hope it isn't someone like Saudi Arabia, but more like Kuwait or Oman or something along those lines) in the company, that they will see to it that their investments will thrive and the dividends are nice. So in this case, they would be more eager to purchase helicopters themselves as it will bring a return back from their investment/purchases as well they may have more access to the company to also start producing some parts in their respective country. Also, it would be more beneficial for them to convince other nations that they have influence with, to purchase Russian choppers, so they also get a cut out of it.

    Personally, I figure sales of 10% is at best and rest should stay in Russia. But in most cases, most do not want to invest in that meager sum.

    I spent same time and calculated the capability of the RU aviation industry vs US aviation industry.

    Interesting result.

    The cost of the SU-34 is 1.1 billion rubel , the average yearly mancost is 433860 rubel.
    Means one aircraft needs 2535 manyear to make.

    Cost of the F/A-18 super 70 million $ , average yearly mancost 41625 dollars.

    so the plane cost 1681 manyear to make.

    Means the RU productivity is 66% of the US productivity.

    The above numbers are the contractual batch price for both aircraft divided back to the unit price.

    I think in the SU times the above ratio was 33% ish.


    Means that the military outlay of the RU is 50% of the US military capability.

    The above calculation for China vs usa using the type 55 vs Alan burke gives 55% ratio between the two country.

    Based on the above the Chinese military spending 143% of the US military spending, the Russian 50%.

    At the moment the US enjoy the advantage of the inherited hardware / infrastructure, but this advantage in ten years time disappear .

    What!? Where is the time variable in this "analysis"? You are dividing the costs by average worker salaries (where did you get the data?)
    and inferring a man-year figure. It ain't that simple. You need to scale by the actual fraction of a year that it takes to make one.

    The cost of the SU-34 is 1.1 billion rubel , the average yearly mancost is 433860 rubel.
    Means one aircraft needs 2535 manyear to make.

    Cost of the F/A-18 super 70 million $ , average yearly mancost 41625 dollars.

    so the plane cost 1681 manyear to make.

    Means the RU productivity is 66% of the US productivity.

    What!? Where is the time variable in this "analysis"? You are dividing the costs by average worker salaries (where did you get the data?)
    and inferring a man-year figure. It ain't that simple. You need to scale by the actual fraction of a year that it takes to make one.


    I get the given year wages data from tradingeconomics.com

    I divided back full orders by unit numbers, and calculated the above data from that.


    What was your expectation ?

    By the GDP exchange rate numbers this should be 10%, by the PPP data it should be around 40-45%, sot this calculation gives more balanced view than anything else.

    Interesting result.

    Still doesn't work that way simply because you are probably looking at general and not what the actual costs are. especially for workforce in Russia since there isn't as much accurate data. Also, it differentiates between planes and set of equipment so it is worth looking at how much it costs for other aircrafts in Russia vs that of US and its counterpart (Su-34 doesn't quite equal F-18S/H). Plus contracts are much different regarding the countries and their procurement.

    1.3 billion $ for 16 F/A-18

    http://www.tradingeconomics.com/russia/wages-in-manufacturing
    17 billion RUB for 16 MIG-29 SMT (seems like this cost 1-1.1 billion each)


    With this numbers the required manyears for the F-18 2200 , for the MIG-29 2564.

    Means the efficiency of Russia is 85.7%.

    Interesting is based on exchange rate the mig cheaper by 82%,

    Based on required manhours the MIG is expensive by 17%.

    Of course you can say that the Russian wage statistic bad, but in that case you can expect higher average wages than lower one ( usually if someone cheat with salaries he doing it to pay less tax, not to pay more Very Happy ) , means the real cost of airplanes get closer to each other.



    Of course you can say that one f-18 worth thousand of migs and sukhois : )
    the fact : russia can run the twice as big military as UK + France + Germany together , and half as big as the US : )
