    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.

    Continuing on the machine tool topic, more positive news this time regarding next generation of machine tool lubricants that increase cost-efficiency and productivity by a significant margin. The machine tool modernization will increase aircraft production efficiency by a wide-margin on it's own (no doubt), in addition to supplement that front, a separate development of the next generation of machine tool lubricants reduces machining force by 59%. It will also improve wear resistance of the tool and parts seven fold and increases productivity of manufacturing two fold, and above all the surface quality of manufactured items, pieces, parts and spares will increase two fold. The new generation of lubricants will both increase the quality and reduce the cost of aircraft parts and spares by a significant margin:

    "Aircraft Equipment" will show the newest technological developments
    Experts examined the technical implementation of the holding "effect wearlessness"



    Engineers Company "Respirator", part of the holding "Aircraft Equipment" , will take part in the VII All-Russian Conference of Young Scientists and Specialists "The Future Engineering of Russia." In the section "Renovating technology in mechanical engineering" they will present the results of applied research on the implementation of a fundamental scientific discovery Garkunova - Kragelskii "wearlessness effect."

    Engineers "Respirator" will present the results of three years of applied research in the field of technological implementation of the "effect wearlessness" Garkunova - Kragelskii, according to a press release from the holding . Process development is that reducing friction surfaces of the cutting tool and workpiece leading to increased strength of the products, to reduce costs and reduce the amount of time required for processing the product.

    Scientific articles engineers "Respirator" on this topic have been previously published in Russian scientific journals and a number of American publications.

    Practical study consisted in changing the composition of the fluids used for machining instead of traditional lubricating fluids used in the processing of specialty lubricants new, more dense structure. Also used new tools helical shape to handle the holes in metal products, providing a smooth high-speed machining, a reliable supply of lubricants and reducing tool wear.

    Head of theses Alexey Shchedrin present the results of studies of their wards, consisting in the change of the composition of oils for machining and exploitation in friction. Reducing losses in friction and wear parts and tools in the processing and operation is achieved by using additives "Valen" added to the oil.

    Composition of a new additive reduces machining force by 59% and improves the wear resistance of the tool and parts seven times and two times increases productivity of manufacturing. In addition, twice as improving the quality of the surface receiving the item. Obviously, all these parameters ultimately lead to a reduction in the cost of production.

    "The performance of our young scientists would not be so successful if the company were not provided with conditions for creative activity, - said General Director of" Respirator "Alexander Bryzgalin. - With the support of the quality of engineering education, improve working conditions for engineers and enhance their professional status at all its facilities, our specialists have the opportunity not only to make fundamental discoveries, but also put them into production. The next stage of technological development NPP "Respirator" will be the introduction of the results of theses in real current production. "

    All-Russian Conference of Young Scientists and Specialists "The Future Engineering of Russia" is devoted to the use of the latest achievements of science, engineering and technology in the industry. Held annually since 2007, Russian Engineering Union. Participation in the event is about 1,000 experts from around the country. Co-founder of the conference in 2014 made Goskorporatsiya Rosteh. By tradition, the conference takes at MSTU. NE Bauman.

    The organizing committee of the conference includes: Head, SC Rosteh and chairman of the Russian Engineering Union Chemezov, Rector MSTU. NE Bauman Anatoly Alexandrov, first deputy chairman of the State Duma Committee on Industry Vladimir Gutenev. Will open the event this year, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.

    SPE "Respirator" traces its history to 1932. In 2009, the company became part of the holding company "Aircraft Equipment" . Is a developer and manufacturer of serial oxygen-breathing apparatus, holding the lead in the development and production of high-quality and reliable equipment needed for aviation, navy, emergency and health care.

    This is the sort of improvement that has a fundamental effect in all areas of the military and also civilian applications.

    things like improved propellent, or night vision equipment added to existing weapons allowing 24 hour use and the ability to be used in poor weather greatly increase the performance of already produced things.

    Next generation heat-resistant aluminum alloy could potentially replace titanium in combat aircraft engines, tests have shown that the new alloy has great potential to make aircraft engines lighter, easier to manufacture and more energy efficient by a significant margin, and will spur on development of more capable UAV's:

    UMPO released details of a gas turbine engine heat-resistant aluminum
    Material will significantly lighten the weight of the motor



    Ufa Engine Industrial Association (UMPO), Mr. olovnoe Enterprise Division "engines for combat aircraft" United Engine Corporation , together with the Ufa State Aviation Technical University (USATU) produced the first gas turbine engine blades of heat-resistant aluminum.

    The first samples of the details of the new alloy were obtained in 2013. In this year of a full-length produced compressor blades. The next step - welding them to the disc by linear friction welding - will be made after machining. All studies are conducted jointly UMPO USATU and with the participation of another member of the division of DBA - NPP "Motor". JavaScript will test on the developed to the "engine" of the gas turbine drive GTR-953. If the tests are successful, experts will offer it to the introduction in the production of gas turbine engines for combat aircraft.



    "The use of heat-resistant aluminum alloy instead of the traditional titanium can significantly increase the energy efficiency of GTD, as aluminum is more flexible, easier to give in machining and greatly facilitates the weight of the engine, - said Deputy General Director of" DBA Engineering "Vladimir Ivanov. - In addition, the great promise for the use of aluminum to withstand high temperatures, open in the area of ​​modern piston engines, which are required for advanced unmanned aerial vehicles."

    Project UMPO and USATU received a grant in the framework of the third stage of the competition of the Ministry of Education and Science at the end of 2012. Partially financed by the development of the enterprise itself. In the creation of advanced technology are participating non-profit partnership "Technopark aviation technology" (Ufa), Belgorod State University, National Research Nuclear University MEPI.

    Ufa Engine Industrial Association - the largest manufacturer of aircraft engines in Russia. The main activities are the development, production, maintenance and repair of turbo-jet aircraft engines and gas pumping units, production and repair of units of helicopters.

    Division "engines for combat aircraft" - a business unit of United Engine Corporation, which includes companies and design offices for the production and development of aircraft engines for defense purposes: Ufa Engine Industrial Association (the parent structure of the division), SPC Gas Turbine "Salute", NPP "Motor "and MMP.

    Yet another update on the machine tool/plant equipment front. By 2020, Russia will cut down on it's foreign dependency of machine tools by nearly 2/3rd's, Russian aircraft factories will comprise of 10% domestic machine tools as of now, but by 2020 60% of machine tools will be domestic:

    "Stankoprom" will be the engine implementation in production of domestic developments
    By 2020, 60% of the equipment at the enterprises of the defense industry should be Russian



    Machine Tool Holding Rosteha "Stankoprom"  will become the engineering center of competence, and the locomotive of the implementation process in the production of domestic developments, particularly in the defense sector.

    According to the Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturova in the next five years, ie until 2020, the minimum level of equipment of industrial enterprises of defense technological equipment of Russian production should rise from the current 10 to 60%

    "Over the past four years as part of the program of development of machine tool industry in Russia have been developed over 100 models of new machines and high-tech, hard alloy, modular tool that is fully ready for implementation into production. The main and the main driving force to ensure the demand for these products will be the defense industry on a large-scale modernization which devotes significant resources from the state budget ", - said the head of the Industry and Trade Ministry.

    Already this year for defense companies that receive budget money for the purchase of tools, will be set minimum acceptable level of equipment of Russian technological equipment at 10% of their needs.

    "Stankoprom" together with other companies and machine-tool industry Russia ensure the implementation of the government program "Development of domestic machine-tool and tool industry for 2011-2016" and resolve the issue importooperezheniya in the defense industry through the use of advanced Russian-designed, superior in a number of indicators foreign counterparts.

    The Minister said that now "Stankoproma" has all the technology and manufacturing capabilities for commercialization and introduction of samples that meet world standards and may even exceed the number of indicators foreign counterparts.

    "Stankoprom" - the umbrella organization of the Machine Tool and tool production, SC Rosteh, the key task is to ensure the long-term technological independence and competitiveness of Russian machine-building at the expense of the pre-emptive use of competitive domestic machine-building production facilities.

    Russian Helicopters strengthens market positions in South Asia
    Russian Aviaton » Tuesday December 2, 2014 20:21 MSK

    Russian Helicopters, part of State Corporation Rostec, will showcase its latest helicopters at International Defence Exhibition & Seminar (IDEAS 2014) in Karachi on 1-4 December. On display in collaboration with Rosoboronexport – the company’s partner for exports of military aircraft – will be the Mi-171E and Mi-17V-5 transports, as well as the Mi-35M transport and combat helicopter.

    The Mi-171E and Mi-17V-5 are designed to carry personnel and cargo, and can fly a range of missions to supply and evacuate troops. The medium multirole Mi-171E is the principal transport helicopter of the Pakistani Armed Forces. Mi-8/17-series helicopters are widely used across South Asia, and are often an indispensable means of transport and form the core of military helicopter fleets.
    Follow us on: Follow ruaviation on Twitter

    In October 2014 Russia completed deliveries of 63 Mi-17V-5 transport helicopters to the Afghan National Army under a Rosoboronexport contract. The Mi-17V-5 is produced by Kazan Helicopters, a Russian Helicopters company, and has repeatedly demonstrated its abilities in adverse climatic conditions in Afghanistan’s mountain regions.

    Earlier in 2014 another large Rosoboronexport contract was fulfilled with the delivery to China of 52 Mi-171E helicopters built by Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant, another Russian Helicopters company. The Mi-171E operates successfully in China, and is widely used in regions with challenging terrain and harsh climates to transport medical supplies, humanitarian aid and construction materials.

    The Mi-35M transport and combat helicopter was developed from the legendary Mi-24 and uses the latest systems and technologies. It is designed to destroy enemy armoured vehicles, provide supporting firepower for ground troops, drop parachute troops, evacuate wounded personnel, and transport goods inside the cabin and on an external sling. The aircraft combines rich military operational experience with the latest developments in helicopter-building, and is in service with the armed forces of Russia, Brazil, Azerbaijan and other countries.

    South Asia is one of the fastest-growing markets for helicopters worldwide. At IDEAS 2014 Russian Helicopters will present its latest models to companies from the region, and provide briefings on post-service support and maintenance for Russian-built helicopters.

    IDEAS 2014 is one of the largest defence exhibitions in the region. It takes place every two years and brings together a large number of participants from around the world. The exhibition was first held in 2000.

    Modernization MiGs has been halted by the arrest of the Director of a "curtain"
    An unexpected twist happened in the situation surrounding the arrest of the head of the famous St. Petersburg plant defense JSC "Barrier" Alexander Gorbunov in a criminal case of illegal possession of weapons and explosives. Investigators and investigators seized the company during searches of computers and electronic media than paralyzed him. "Barrier" uploaded by orders of the Ministry of defense until 2018 and, in particular, participates in the modernization of the MiG-31, so that the execution of the state defense order was in jeopardy. Now the defense Ministry is trying to solve the issue of the reopening of "Barrier".

    The manager trafficking weapons/explosives.....

    Anyway, this will possibly cause a setback to Mikoyan aircraft modernizations.

    http://lenta.ru/news/2015/07/15/blades/

    I wander for some time, how Russia have no problems for helicopter engines, as they produce small number of fully domestic engines and for the rest they have to import blades from Ukraine. Now it is clear, they don't import them from Ukraine, but from SMZ plant in Snezhnoe in DNR, Novorussia. I more think Ukrainian Motor Sich have problems with those blades as this plant was producing blades for Motor Sich and now they don't sell them to Ukraine.

    In a plane crash near Samara killed the chief designer of the Department CPG "technodynamics"

    State Corporation Rostec expresses condolences to relatives



    In the Samara region in Neftegorskaya district on Saturday crashed light aircraft Yak-52, which belonged to the Samara regional flying club DOSAAF. When entering the second "loop" the crew lost control. As a result, both members of the crew, Sergei Balabaev and Mikhail Kozlov, died.


    State Corporation Rostec and all its employees express their deepest condolences to the relatives and friends.

    Mikhail Kozlov was the chief designer of the Department of landing gear design Holding Center "technodynamics."

    The tragedy of life is interrupted by a unique specialist, with a record of which work on cutting-edge products, will make the Russian aircraft more reliable and relevant.

    The last 13 years of Mikhail focused on building the chassis, which are known to play a key role during takeoffs and landings - the most critical phases of the flight of any air assets. Even in the most difficult times for the Russian industry he created unique aviation system, such as an upgraded chassis Il-76MD-90A, racks landing gear for helicopters Ka-62. He also developed the castles stowed gear and hydraulic cylinders for MS-21, the system for the PAK DA and the AIT.

    Through him, the industry has lost not only a designer, but also a talented leader who was able to with meticulous precision and responsibility inherent in its design activities, organize the work of his department and create one of the best engineering team in the direction of take-off and landing systems.

    Mikhail was a responsible man who loved aviation. Rostec sincerely mourns together with the family and friends of Mikhail Kozlov and promises to do everything possible to remain the name of the designer in the history of the Russian aircraft industry.

    “An operational module of the supersonic combusting ramjet will probably be the most eye-catching piece at the CIAM booth,” the institute reported.
    In addition, the company plans to present dozens of other interesting projects.

    The CIAM is one of the world leader’s in developing supersonic combusting ramjets. The Institute created Europe’s largest range to imitate flight conditions at speeds of Mach 5-7.5 (6,125-9,187 kmh).

    “For rig tests, the Institute has designed a module of a hydrogen supersonic combusting ramjet. During tests under simulated flight conditions at speeds of Mach 7.4, the engine delivered forward thrust,” the Institute explained

    Not news and not fully related to the VVS. But it is worth it to check this PDF out.

    First time I have seen any image but could this be the new super lift Transport (200,000 kg +) they are supposed to be developing.

    There are unfortunately very little amount of tooling plants in Russia. They have them, but not that many and very specialized. Good thing is, both Japanese and German companies have built tooling plants in Russia with 50% or more localization of parts.

    CIA report on tooling and machine production in Russia (year 1951): http://www.foia.cia.gov/sites/default/files/document_conversions/89801/DOC_0000232459.pdf

    Still surviving, or new tooling/machine building plants:

    Stankoprom, Savelovsky Engineering Plant, Public Corporation «VNIIINSTRUMENT», VNITEP, Scientific and Technical Association «IRE-Polus», SP Donpressmash, Тjаzhmеkhprеss, SASTA, Stankozavod TBS, Moscow Tool-Manufacturing Plant MIZ, Moscow Machine-Tools Plan «MSZ-SALUTE», Krasnodar Machine Building Plant «Sedin», Ryazan Machine Tool Works, Vladimir Machine Building Plant «TECHNICA», STERLITAMAK MACHINE-TOOL ENTERPRISE (STAN GROUP), NIIizmereniya, Kirovgrad hard alloys plant (KZTS), Tyazhpressmash, Ivanovo Heavy-Duty Machine Tool Building Plant.

    "Deputy Industry and Trade Minister Sergei Tsyb has listed Russian sectors that offer the most potential in terms of import substitution: In the machine tool industry, imports reach 90 percent; in heavy machine engineering, from 60 to 80 percent; in the electronics industry, from 80 to 90 percent. By the estimation of the Russian Industry and Trade Ministry, if the import substitution policy is successfully implemented, Russia's reliance on Western suppliers for the most "critical" industries can be expected to decline from 70–90 to 50–60 percent by 2020. Complete import substitution is impossible, so in addition to setting up equivalent domestic production, Russia will have to look for new suppliers.

    Military cooperation with the West was on the wane even before the conflict in Ukraine began. From 2012 onward, the Russian Defense Ministry did not sign any new large contracts for European military products. Furthermore, in August 2013, a regulation was passed banning the use of foreign machine tools if their Russian equivalents were available; the aim of this move was to revive the destroyed Soviet machine tool industry and to raise the share of Russian-made equipment to one third of the industry's requirement. Efforts were made to gradually end the practice of repairing Russian ships at foreign shipyards." - http://rbth.com/defence/2014/12/27/russian_defense_sector_eyes_change_of_focus_to_limit_effect_of_sancti_42601.html

    "Russian government plans to provide up to RUB 6 billion ($170 million) in subsidies for the establishment of production of technical textile and nonwovens machinery in different parts of the country by 2016. It is planned that the funds will be distributed among the leading Russian machinery producers by Stankoprom holding, one of Russia’s largest producers of machinery......" - long article on machine building and tooling plans by Russian gov. - http://www.nonwovens-industry.com/issues/2015-01-01/view_features/russian-government-solving-machinery-shortage-problem
