    No. Everything is under UAC umbrella, in various degrees.

    Most of the old aircraft design bureaus are now divisions or departments in UAC.

    Creation of United Aerospace Corporation

    Medvedev signs decree creating united aerospace corporation
    Prime Minister noted that the united aerospace corporation would receive assets of ten integrated structures, including 48 different organizations and 14 companies

    GORKI, February 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a government resolution creating a united aerospace corporation on Monday.
    “I have signed a government resolution over management of the space industry,” the prime minister said at a meeting with the deputy prime ministers. “It should consolidate major developers and producers of the just-created united aerospace corporation,” the prime minister said.

    Medvedev noted that the united aerospace corporation would receive assets of ten integrated structures, including 48 different organizations and 14 companies.
    He added that he had signed the resolution, fulfilling the presidential decree.
    The prime minister recalled that the corporation was fully in possession of the state.
    “The space industry needs sweeping changes to meet the needs of our armed forces and domestic space programs with specific types of space hardware,” Medvedev said, noting the need for development of ground infrastructure, spaceports in the industry.

    “I hope that optimization that stems from the presidential decree and the government resolution will provide necessary conditions for development of the space industry,” he said.
    For his part, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin noted that consolidation of enterprises in the united aerospace corporation will take about two years. Medvedev called for accelerating the process.

    Now, I have mixed feelings about UAC as a whole. The concept that Mikoyan, Sukhoi and Irkutsk being separate and competing with each other is imo, better than all being under one umbrella due to internal competition, and theoretically, all creating a competitive product (better and cheaper) all competing for a contract. Now mind you, this concept has existed in US for a long time and has not been benificial at all for the MoD as costs have skyrocket for the products coming out of Lockheed Martin and Boeing. But there is still the form of competition.

    State run on the other hand has the option of creating a product by the exact needs of the MoD, while staying at a budget due to no cost + % profit for domestic use. Problems that arise are usually poor efficiency and slow progress in developing something new, and poor management usually which means the companies are at a loss. It was only in recent years that Mikoyan is becoming semi-profitable and Sukhoi doing very well for itself, but that is due to export more so than domestic purchases.

    With recent push to modernize Russia's airforce, is there room for profits from the aerospace industry from the MoD? How much is usually the profit margin?

    You can talk all you like about competition being the best way to create the most competitive product, but developing decent modern military equipment is very expensive and in a situation like Russia today where even if you only have three competitors in each competition that is three times the number of factories and design bureaus competing for work that is there at the moment but for every successful bidder there will be two that fail.

    Very simply Russia cannot afford to carry such extra weight... and to be honest a Mig competing and always losing to Sukhoi would not remain competitive for long... research and even modern production tooling is expensive.

    The fact is that having ten different companies making the same product is simply not efficient.

    Unifying all the space technology companies into one business means duplication can be eliminated, they can share all the latest resources and technologies.

    Even within one company there will be natural competition but it will be less destructive on the international market as prototypes will be tested and the best ones will go forward, meaning there wont be 3-4 different companies trying to find investors after the lose the government contract to try to keep their baby alive so to speak.

    Problems?

    Sounds to me like this is an opportunity for Russian aircraft parts makers to capitalise on the political misfortunes of the Ukraine... certainly I suspect the Ukrainian makers of these parts will try to sell their parts to Illysion and continue to cooperate but if the government of the Ukraine continues to be unelected nazis then I suspect they will want to cut ties with Russia as soon as possible.

    Either way the purpose of the Il-476 was to build a Russian plane not dependent on foreign countries for parts... swapping to Russian parts now just makes sense even if it causes a small delay...

    IN FOCUS: Mil, Kamov cruising nicely

    By: [url=http://www.flightglobal.com/landingpage/Dan Thisdell.html]Dan Thisdell[/url]
    London
    Source:


    For Russian Helicopters, the parent company behind the Mil and Kamov brands, 2013 marked another year of steady-as-she-goes progress.


    Revenue gained a healthy 10% to Rb138 billion ($3.9 billion), EBITDA jumped by 27% to Rb26.3 billion, with the EBITDA margin pushing toward 20%.

    The bottom line was up a little more than 1% at Rb9.5 billion, but total capital investment was ramped up by a quarter, to Rb16.2 billion. Indeed, 2013 followed a string of similarly good years from 2010, when the state-owned firm completed its strategic objective of consolidating the ex-Soviet helicopter industry under a single management. That consolidation was certainly important and – as the numbers indicate – appears to be bearing fruit.

    Soviet weaknesses


    As company insiders note, the Mil and Kamov operations were hit especially hard by the economic and political chaos that followed the collapse of the USSR, with the end of central control exposing the obvious weakness in the Soviet system, which separated design from manufacturing. The unsurprising result was that the Mil and Kamov design bureaus were left scrambling for “commercial activities” to stay solvent, and individual factories took on sales and design work. The popular [url=http://www.flightglobal.com/landingpage/Mil Mi-8.html]Mil Mi-8[/url]/17 series, for example, remained at least nominally uniform, despite being manufactured independently by plants in Kazan and [url=http://www.flightglobal.com/landingpage/Ulan Ude.html]Ulan Ude[/url]. However, nobody was properly responsible for warranties, and there was no unified after-sales service regime.

    A proliferation of independent workshops, especially in Africa, ended up trading – wittingly or otherwise – in a sea of undocumented and counterfeit parts.

    Russian Helicopters has been able to push hard to take a grip on these problems. Formal service arrangements, for example with Denel in South Africa, should build customer confidence. The various production plants have been brought into a unified corporation. Notably, in late 2013 [url=http://www.flightglobal.com/landingpage/Kazan Helicopters.html]Kazan Helicopters[/url] chief Vadim Ligay and Ulan-Ude’s first deputy managing director Vyacheslav Kozlov were appointed deputies to chief executive Alexander Mikheev, who took over from Dmitry Petrov in September 2013. Petrov steered the consolidation and now works within ultimate parent Rostec.

    Noteworthy progress


    So, given the story of the past two decades, the progress of the past four years is noteworthy – if not spectacular. For 2013, production of 275 aircraft for Russian and international customers fell compared with the 290 delivered in 2012. Efficiency appears to be improving, however, on the back of investment in processing, plating and composite materials production, helping to lift output per employee by 12.4% to Rb3.4 million.

    Mikheev says the slight decline in deliveries in 2013 was due to rescheduling of handovers rather than any production or sales slowdown. The firm order backlog stood at 808 units worth Rb401 billion as of end-2013, and 100% of the 2014 delivery plan of 303 units is for firm orders.

    For 2014, says Mikheev, key priorities will be “slashing the timeframe for bringing the new multirole [Kamov] Ka-62, Mi-38 and ­Mi-171A2 to market”. Certification and entry into service of the former will be crucial for the company. Although its helicopters continue to sell strongly in its home market – particularly to Russia’s armed forces – the 6.5t Ka-62 represents its most Western-centric model to date, in terms of systems, appearance and export potential. First flight was previsioned last year, but this has slipped into 2014. And as for the Mi-38, a maiden sortie was undertaken in 2003, but the third prototype only performed an initial hover trial late last year. All this while also proceeding with development of the all-new 2.5t light helicopter Russian is to produce with AgustaWestland, following the companies’ late-2013 agreement.

    Some milestones reached over the past few months are ­noteworthy. Kazan Helicopters this year built its 3,500th export-version Mil Mi-8/17 – one of 151 Mi-17V-5s ordered by India’s armed forces since 2008. In September 2013, the company finally achieved civil certification of its [url=http://www.flightglobal.com/landingpage/Kazan Ansat.html]Kazan Ansat[/url] light twin.

    Meanwhile, a publicity coup rounded off 2013 when a Kamov Ka-32A11BC enabled a dramatic Antarctic rescue. The helicopter (pictured), based on the Chinese icebreaker Xue Long, made five flights on 2 January to evacuate passengers aboard a research vessel that had got trapped in sea ice about 1,500nm (2,800km) from Australia on Christmas Eve.

    Momentum, then, appears to carrying the company in the right direction. Indeed, the main criticism typically hurled at Russian Helicopters is arguably trivial – nobody trapped on the Antarctic ice was sorry to see it arrive, but as the Ka-32 well illustrates, one of Mikheev’s next priorities might be to shake up the styling department.

    Post  George1 on Thu Aug 07, 2014 2:37 am



    About Russian Helicopters

    Russian Helicopters is a leading player in the global helicopter industry, the sole Russian rotorcraft designer and manufacturer and one of the few companies worldwide with the capability to design, manufacture, service and test modern civilian and military helicopters. Headquartered in Moscow, we operate design bureaus, helicopter assembly plants, components production, maintenance and repair enterprises and helicopter service company providing after-sales support in Russia and abroad. Although Russian Helicopters was established only in 2007, some of its key enterprises date back more than 60 years.

    Russian Helicopters in Numbers

    According to our data, there are over 8,500 Russian helicopters currently operated in over 100 countries around the world, representing 14% of the global helicopter fleet.

    As of 2012, Russian Helicopters products accounted for approximately 85% of rotorcraft market in Russia and 14% of worldwide helicopter sales in USD equivalent.

    Russian Helicopters enterprises produced around 35% of global combat helicopter fleet and nearly 74% of the ultra-heavy helicopter fleet worldwide (MTOW more than 20 tons), as well as 56% of global helicopter fleet with MTOW from 8 to 15 tons.

    In 2011 the holding reported a growth of key financial and operational indicators. As compared with 2010, revenue increased by 27.8% and amounted to 103.9 billion rubles, and EBITDA grew by 31.7%, which equals 18.0 billion rubles. Profit in 2011 increased by 12.7% and amounted to 7.0 billion rubles. In its turn rotorcraft deliveries increased by 22.4% and totaled 262 helicopters.

    In 2012 the revenue grew by 42.3% in comparison with the 1st half-year of 2011 and equaled 60.3 billion rubles. As compared with the same period of last year net profit of JSC "Russian Helicopters" in the 1st quarter of 2012 according to IFRS increased by 12.9% to 3.1 billion rubles.

    As of August 2013, the Company’s firm order book stood at 870 helicopters with a total value of more than RUB 388 billion.

    Company Highlights


    Russian Helicopters has leading positions in some of the most perspective and high-growth market segments globally, including:

       

    • Number 1 manufacturer in Russia & CIS
       

    • Number 1 manufacturer in the world in medium/heavy and ultra-heavy rotorcraft segments, and in attack helicopters segment


    We own some of the world’s leading technologies and production facilities, having produced some of the most sought-after helicopters in the world over a period of 60 years, including world leaders, such as:

       

    • Mi-8/17 — world’s most widely operated helicopter in history;


    • Mi-26 (and its modifications) — unique heavy-lift helicopter capable of transporting up to 20 tons of cargo;


    • Ка-32A11BC — new efficient coaxial helicopter successfully employed for fire-fighting and rescue missions

    Our Production Facilities

    Our key production facilities include Kazan Helicopters, Rostvertol, Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant, Arsenyev Aviation Company "Progress" and Kumertau Aviation Production Enterprise. Stupino Engineering Productive Enterprise and Reductor-PM produce rotorcraft components.

    Research and Development

    The Company enjoys very strong R&D capabilities. Two major world-class rotorcraft-designing schools, Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant and Kamov make part of the Holding. The history of two design bureaus is closely intertwined with the lives of the two men after whom they were named, Mikhail Mil and Nikolai Kamov, who are universally considered the patriarchs of the Russian helicopter industry. Nikolai Kamov, who has been credited with coining the Russian word for helicopter, "vertolyot", was actively involved in design and development of an autogyro, a predecessor of a helicopter, as early as in the 1920s. Under the guidance of Mikhail Mil the first Russian serial-production helicopter Mi-1 was created. Since then a multitude of unique rotorcraft originated from these two design bureaus.
    Service and Support

    With more than 8,500 of our helicopters currently registered throughout the world, we are ready to provide after-sale support through a global network of own and partners’ service centers. Our support centers are represented by Helicopter service company. We work with a wide network of Russian and international service centers worldwide, and supply them with component parts and materials, as well as other necessary support. We are also opening pilot service centers in key growing markets (e.g. India, China, and Latin America) in order to strengthen our presence there and to ensure high-quality licensed servicing of rotorcraft in operation.

    Russia's United Aircraft Corporation, a state-owned conglomerate of Russian aircraft production firms, says that it will be able to replace imported Ukrainian aircraft components with Russian equivalents within the next two years, a company official told ITAR-Tass on Tuesday.

    None of the company's existing contracts will be cancelled, said Vladimir Mikhailov, UAC's head of military programs, adding that UAC is already actively pursuing plans to substitute imports with domestic equipment.

    The Russian aircraft industry is deeply reliant on imports from Ukrainian defense firms, as is the wider Russian defense industry. For instance, the engines for several Russian military and civilian helicopters are produced in formerly Soviet factories in eastern Ukraine, an area now ravaged by months of fighting between pro-Russia insurgents and the Ukrainian army.

    Last month, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko slapped a moratorium on military-industrial cooperation with Russia, plunging Moscow into an impending supply crisis as it implements a massive $700 billion military modernization and rearmament drive through 2020.

    On Monday, President Vladimir Putin urged defense industry officials to double time their efforts to shore up gaps in Russia's military production lines to ensure that the country can weather the storm of anticipated U.S. and European Union sanctions on the defense industry.

    The EU is expected to announce its next round of sanctions as early as Tuesday, with reported targets to include the financial, energy and defense sectors. The U.S. has already struck eight major Russian defense companies with asset freezes and bans on transactions with U.S. companies and individuals.

    Net profit of UAC increased 3 times
    Russian Aviaton » Thursday August 21, 2014 12:24 MSK

    United Aircraft Corporation (MOEX: UNAC) announced unconsolidated unaudited financial statement for the first half of 2014 (in compliance with the Russian Accounting Standards (RAS)). The financial statement was posted at the corporation’s official website.

    Revenues of UAC for the first half of 2014 were 1.4 billion rubles (-50.8% as compared to the same period of last year). On the other hand, the corporation expects its revenues for 2014 to grow almost 3 times ─ to 30-35 billion rubles. Such indicators may be reached by means of implementing MRO contracts with Russian Ministry of Defense and increasing the number of aircraft delivered by the corporation.
    Follow us on: Follow ruaviation on Twitter

    Despite the fact that UAC got operating loss of 0.9 billion rubles in the first half of 2014, financial results achieved primarily due to interest income and foreign exchange gains allowed the corporation to reach a net profit of 1.5 billion rubles (increased 3 times as compared to the first half of 2013) and get a net margin of 112.5%.

    Moreover, net debt of UAC decreased by almost 10 billion rubles in the first half of 2014 (-32.3%).

    A service center providing maintenance services for Il-76 aircraft will be established in Zhukovsky on the basis of a branch of Ilyushin Company
    Russian Aviaton » Wednesday August 27, 2014 02:49 MSK

    A service center providing maintenance services for Il-76M/MD aircraft operated by the Military Transport Aviation Command of the Russian air forces will be established on the basis of Ilyushin Company. The center will be located at the territory of a Zhukovsky-based branch of Ilyushin Company. An order establishing the center was signed by CEO of Ilyushin Company, Yuri Mikhailovich Yudin, and Commander of the Military Transport Aviation of the Russian air forces, Major General Vladimir Valentinovich Benediktov, press-service of Ilyushin Company reports.

    "The new center will be responsible for heavy maintenance checks on Il-76M and Il-76MD aircraft, service bulletin, routine maintenance and mid-life overhaul of aircraft and their components, diagnostics of the aircraft, training of specialists of the military units of the Military Transport Aviation", - the press-service noted.

    It is expected that the center’s specialists will be able to carry out maintenance and overhaul right at an airfield in cooperation with maintenance personnel of the military units (if necessary). The center will cooperate with manufacturers in terms of purchasing spare parts, tools, additional equipment, consumables as well as storing the purchased materiel and performing functions in the area of accounting to assure provision of aircraft maintenance services. It will also inspect the measuring devices subject to state technical inspection.

    «The establishment of the new service center is the most efficient solution. The center will reduce the workload of enterprises involved in repair of aircraft manufactured by Ilyushin Company and will help balance our production capacities», - CEO of Ilyushin Company, Yuri Mikhailovich Yudin, said.

    It could be worse, you could be watching Rambo 3 where at the end of the movie there's a message personally thanking the Afghan Mujahadeen. Leave it to Hollyweird to pump out horrendously inaccurate movies after another, on top of being stupefying mind numbing garbage.

    I don't remember the credits... when they had that horse mounted charge on those Soviet forces that included at least one ZSU-23-4 my eyes were full of water and I was on the floor laughing... Shocked


    Pretty huge news guys, I can't believe we missed this amazing piece of news and I would love to hear Garry B's, Viktor's, Mike E's, etc's opinion on this...UAC will modernize 115 tools and heavy industrial plant equipment, which will increase production capability by an astounding 4.5 times that of current production capability, and will be in full force by 2015-2016

    This is part of the stuff most people don't consider when they think about production... machine tools, even having access to a super computer so you can run thousands of simulations an hour and try all sorts of weird solutions without wasting time on the prototypes you end up testing to model level.

    Excellent news.

    BTW it was always part of the plan that up until about 2015 than new products and upgrades will be developed while C4IR is sorted out... after 2015 actual production should take off with a balance of domestic and export production hopefully to be taken over by increased export demand.

    Russian Helicopters to build Russia’s largest helicopter gearbox and transmission assembly and testing facility
    Russian Aviaton » Friday September 12, 2014 12:13 MSK

    Russian Helicopters, a subsidiary of Oboronprom, part of State Corporation Rostec, has launched construction of a new assembly and testing facility at its Reductor-PM plant in Perm. An official ceremony in Perm today was attended by Perm region Governor Viktor Basargin, Russian Helicopters Deputy CEO for Production Andrey Shibitov, Perm region Prime Minister Gennady Tushnolobov, Perm region Minister for Industry, Entrepreneurship and Trade Alexey Chibisov, and Perm city administration head Igor Sapko. On completion, the facility will be the largest of its type in Russia.

    Construction facilities are currently being put in place at the site, and preparatory groundworks are under way. At today’s official ceremony a plaque was unveiled with the start and end dates of the construction, August 2014 and December 2016. This period will see an advanced 20,000 sq m production facility built to house Reductor-PM’s assembly and testing plant.

    “The start of construction of this assembly and testing facility is an important event for the whole of our region,” said Perm region Governor Viktor Basargin. “The development of advanced high-tech manufacturing will create a solid foundation for the regional economy and will be a key factor in its future growth, by making the region more attractive as an investment destination and strengthening its reputation as a national leader both economically and technologically.”

    “For Russian Helicopters, upgrading our production facilities is an extremely important task,” said Andrey Shibitov, Deputy CEO for Production. “Today we are making significant investments to create unique centres of excellence. Reductor-PM is home to one of these centres, for designing, producing, testing and after-sales service of helicopter transmissions.”

    “Construction of this new facility is long overdue,” said Nikolai Semikopenko, Managing Director of Reductor-PM. “Today our plant is home to unique isolating test-stands for testing 8M transmissions as well as tail transmissions and angle gearboxes for the Mi-28N. We are also working on creating test stands for VR-8A, VR-14, VR-23, VR-29 and VR-26 main gearboxes. We want to create Russia’s largest helicopter gearbox testing centre while meeting strict sustainability criteria. Construction of the new production facility is a major step towards reaching this goal.”

    As well as increasing testing capacity, the new facility will significantly expand Reductor-PM’s assembly plant, meaning that gearboxes and transmission units can be assembled to meet global best practices.

    Over the last five years, Russian Helicopters has implemented several large-scale investment projects at Reductor-PM. In 2013 a thermo-chemical parts processing plant – the only one of its kind in Russia – was opened, following investment of more than RUB 1.3 billion. More than 40 machines were purchased for processing gear-wheels, including some with spiral-bevel teeth. Work is ongoing to upgrade the plant’s machine tools for production of body parts and shaft machining. Today the company is also upgrading its electroplating facilities. Total investment in 2014-2016 will amount to more than RUB 3.5 billion.
