    Those engines are called VK-3500 which have a rating of 3000-3200 shp in normal operation and maximum contingency of 3750 shp they also fit in current attack helicopters with small modifications which will be an long term upgrade for Alligators, Okhotniks and maybe even Crocodiles.

    I am certain the PD family will eventually find its way to some sort of a heavy transport as well as a wide body airliner.

    Thanks all for the updates. Good to see this project moving along strongly.

    Interesting that versions are also intended to retrofit existing aircraft, and I wasn't aware of the helicopter variant for very large helicopters.

    That article you posted in the Il-106 thread mentioned that new engines were needed to replace engines produced in the Ukraine for the Mi-26, An-124 and others... Smile

    It makes sense to make families of engines with a range of power ratings and of course for multiple applications... ie aircraft, rotary, heavy UAV, and marine power plant as well as electricity generation.

    "Russian supplier Technodinamika has carried out initial tests of the fire-protection system for the Irkut MC-21. Technodinamika says the test of the equipment, developed in co-operation with Curtiss-Wright Controls, has “fully confirmed” its declared capabilities. It states that the performance of the system is “superior” to those of counterparts available on the Russian market. The system is lightweight, it adds, through the use of composite materials and an optimised design. Technodinamika adds that the system has a lifetime of 80,000h and has algorithms developed to protect against false-positive alerts. While it has been developed for the MC-21, the company says it could be used in future for the Sukhoi Superjet, while its modular architecture means it has potential for installation on long-haul transports."

    Consider options to enhance the family MC-21 aircraft

    http://vpk-news.ru/news/28529

    United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) in the framework of the "Airplane" 2020 "is considering the development of advanced versions of MS-21 airliner, created the corporation" Irkut "


    "During the three-year research projects (R & D) considered various options to enhance the family MC-21 aircraft for the period until 2035," - he told Interfax-Military News Agency Project Manager "Airplane" 2020 "KLA Mikhail Kuryansky.

    First of all, he said, it is possible modernization of the MS-21 on the optimization of the specific fuel consumption and improve the aerodynamics of the liner.

    Pre-worked versions of the new single-aisle "single-pass" (one aisle) aircraft MS-21-400, which require engines with a thrust of up to 18 tons. It is also possible to create a family of aircraft - MS-21-500 MS-21-600 engines traction 20-25 m and MS-21-700 engines with a thrust of 30 tons, said M.Kuryansky.

    "We consider and version of the so-called" universal "aircraft MS-21X, which can be positioned at a distance of nine or ten thousand kilometers and will be a key player in these ranges. Although in this embodiment, the plane turns out more continental, but even with the headwind for its intended use on ocean routes, "- said M.Kuryansky.

    According to him, the project scenario MC-21X is approximately two times cheaper than the creation of two planes: long-haul wide-body and narrow-body of the new MS-21-400. M.Kuryansky said that the plane line "single-pass" MS-21-400 will be released as an indication of take-off weight of 105 tons take-off weight of the aircraft MC-21X will be around 155 tonnes.

    Here, update:

    https://www.rt.com/business/326626-cityjet-sukhoi-option-airplanes/

    Irish regional airline CityJet has agreed to option six more Russian-made Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) airliners with a $210 million list price, the Irish Independent reported.

    The airline plans to turn an existing 10-order option for Russian airplanes into orders, according to CityJet founder and executive chairman Pat Byrne. The company also placed an order for up to 14 Bombardier aircraft. The jets will replace the airline’s aging fleet.

    "We're shaping up well for 2016," Byrne told the Irish Independent newspaper. "Winning the SAS contract, ordering the Superjets and Bombardiers means we're now in implementation mode.”

    In October, CityJet announced that it had chosen the SSJ100 to enhance its fleet and network development program. The company had placed an order for 15 Russian-made aircraft with an option to buy 10 more.

    The first deliveries of four aircraft are scheduled for the first quarter of 2016, with an additional 11 planes in 2017.

    Well Superjet is in very popular class, many competitors, till today somewhat over 100 was produced and its not bad considering fact Sukhoi never produced real liners and they do not have regular buyers.

    Well, the plane didn't live up to its expectations and is not part of a line yet in exception of the long range version.
    Indonesia crash, sanctions and lack of good support all hampered the effort to promote the plane in the west.

    Unfortunatelly i must agree with you. Plane is in production for quite long time but never reached planed rate of 60-70 per year. Competition in that category now is even bigger with Japan and China in game.
    I hope that better days are in front of it, but i am not opptimist any longer. Production will be live and numbers will raise but it will not be big comercial succes.

    They need to market the plane more aggressively. Create a support and maintenance network for the plane in countries willing to purchase. They need to further develop new variants of the plane and improve its economy and reliability. All that would not be wasted as you will be building your customer, technological and support base for the entire aviation sector.
    It may not be a bad idea to combine military related support facilities for helicopters and jets in foreign countries with civilian ones to improve service in both areas.

    Aeroflot signed a firm contract with SCA to buy another 20 aircraft SSJ-100

    http://vpk-news.ru/news/28772


    This was announced by CEO Vitaly Savelyev airlines at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Savelyev said that today the park of "Aeroflot" has 168 aircraft, including 26 SSJ-100. "For probably the next four or five months, we received another four cars, and will have 30 cars - this is a contract that we have already been concluded, - said V. Saveliev. - We are now in the stage of signing an agreement with SCA for another 20 cars "Sukhoi Superjet". Thus, the "Sukhoi Superjet" will be in the amount of 50 cars represented in our park, "- said Savelyev, who was quoted by Interfax-AVN.

    Memorandum of Intent on the twenty SSJ-100 "Aeroflot" and SCA signed in January last year, originally planned to sign a firm contract until the end of 2015

    I think they have done pretty much everything they reasonably could have. One of the reasons the project used so many western suppliers, and the whole thing packaged up in the Alenia joint venture was to develop a decent support and marketing presence in western markets, but even then you have cut-throat competition, and are still facing the hurdle that most large airlines have long-standing arrangements with particular manufacturers for engineering support and pilot training, and get very steep discounts on new orders in return for that loyalty. Also, it makes sense for an airline to try to source all aircraft from the same manufacturer, and ideally the same family. Combine that with buying planes being the biggest and most critical financial commitment an airline makes, and asking them to do that from a brand only previously associated with military and small aircraft, and it's a difficult sell.

    Easy as it is to criticise from a distance, as new aircraft to rejuvenate the industry in Russia, I would have gone with a modern turboprop family, with 30, 50, 70 and 90 seat options, plus combi and cargo variants around common components (maybe using the IL-114 as a template). Russia has a massive legacy of very old regional turboprops that are life expired, and at the time the SJ was first discussed there was little competition. Since then the Chinese have entered the fray, but their offering (like the Bombadier Q400) is only offered in the 70-80 seat size range. Hopefully the revived IL-114 might start UAC thinking in that direction, but the 114 really needs to be expanded (and shrunk!) to be a true family of aircraft, not a standalone "take it or leave it" offering.

    United Engine Corporation (UEC) is preparing for the creation of high-thrust turbofan engines for advanced civil aircraft. As told at the last in the Central Institute of Aviation Motors (CIAM) Conference "Aero Engines of XXI Century" Deputy General Designer of the corporation Victor Belousov, to this end, a member of the JDC Perm company "" OAO is studying the possibility of increasing the gas generator of the new PD-14 engine.

    PD-14 with a thrust of 14 tons is designed for Russia's new single-aisle aircraft MS-21. In late October began its flight tests on a flying laboratory IL-76LL.

    According to the chief designer of the engine family of PD in the company "" OAO Igor Maximov, in the line of big motors base is supposed to make the PD-35 with a thrust of 35 tons. For the new plant is expected to scale gasifier from the PD-14 with the addition of an extra step at the outlet of the high pressure compressor . As a result, the number of compressor stages and turbine PD-35 will be 9 + 2, the diameter of the inlet to the compressor will rise to 815 mm compared to 582 mm for PD-14. It is assumed that the diameter of the fan motor will make a new 3100 mm, length of the engine - more than 8 m, weight - about 8 tons.

    On the basis of the PD-35 will be developed with a thrust power plants 28 (PD-28) and 24 m (PD-24). The first two engines planned to offer two options and chetyrehdvigatelnyh promising widebody long-haul aircraft, the last - to haul widebody aircraft and long-term heavy military transport aircraft, it was noted in the presentation of the representative of the "" OAO.

    Possible applications of the new engine could be a wide-body aircraft, which are jointly developing the Russian United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) and the Chinese corporation COMAC. It is expected that the aircraft seating capacity up to 280 people. C929 with the working title will make its first flight in 2021 and will be commissioned in 2025

    Victor Belousov said that similar work on the high-thrust engines lead to other enterprises of the holding - in Samara company "Kuznetsov". It considered the possibility of the development of power plants thrust up to 35 tonnes on the basis of the gas generator of the turbojet engine NK-32, which is now installed at strategic bombers Tu-160. According to Belousov, both options are considered as a promising power unit with direct drive and driven through the gearbox.

    The company "Ilyushin" plans to develop a new wide-body passenger modification of the Il-96. "We go out with a proposal to launch the initiative on the basis of the Il-96-400 passenger aircraft," - said the January 13 General Director Sergey Velmozhkin.

    The original version of Il-96-400T designed as a cargo version of the basic passenger version of IL-96-300 is distinguished by its extended 9.6 m fuselage, an increase of 20 tonnes maximum take-off weight (270 tons) and more powerful engines PS-90A1.

    It was built four such aircraft, three of which were operated until 2013 the airline "Polet" has ceased its activities. Two of the existing board of this type is converted to an air control point Il-96-400VPU first ready. Two more aircraft will be converted into tankers Il-96-400TZ.

    According Velmozhkina, the contract for this work with the Ministry of Defence has already been signed. "But the question is still at the stage of presentation of evidence that IL-96 can be used as a tanker," - he explained.

    For the passenger version, some components of the IL-96-400 will be upgraded, but the aircraft to maintain the current PS-90 engines. At the same time discusses the use of this modification of the new PD-14 engine, which is designed for single-aisle aircraft MS-21.

    Representatives of "Ilyushin" say the fuel efficiency that four-engine plane will be at the western analogues. Make of IL-96 twin-engine car will be if Russia will be developed by the engine thrust of 32-35 tons, the company stressed.

    As previously stated by representatives of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), in the development plans of the family PD-14 is the creation of a traction engine, but the timing of its development has not yet been determined.
