    The Ministry of Defense of Russia concluded a contract for ten Mi-8AMTSH helicopters

    December 21st, 2:07 am




    As reported on December 20, 2017 by the Department of Information and Communications of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, within the framework of the implementation of the state defense order of the State Defense Order of Russia in 2018-2020, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and JSC Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant (UUAZ) concluded state contracts for the supply of Aerospace the forces of Russia Mi-8AMTSh-V and Mi-8AMTSh helicopters in the "salon" configuration.

    According to the terms of the contract, until the end of 2018, two newest Mi-AMTSH-B helicopters will be transferred to the MKS, and by the end of 2019 - eight Mi-8AMTSh helicopters in the "saloon" configuration.




    The helicopter Mi-8AMTSh-1 in the complete set of "salon" (registration number RF-39201, serial number 8AMTS01643115708U) of the Russian Civil Aviation. Chkalovsky (Moscow region), 14.02.2013 (c) Timofey Nikishin / russianplanes.net (link)

    (Collapse)


    For reference: Mi-8AMTSH-V is a further development of the helicopter range of Mi-8AMTSH transport-combat helicopters.

    Mi-8AMTSH "salon" is intended for the transport of personnel of the Ministry of Defense of Russia.

    Both types of helicopters can be used for transport, search and rescue, medical evacuation operations, as well as for special tasks. They are equipped with modern flight control and navigation equipment and a communication complex. In addition, the helicopters are adapted to use night vision goggles, which allows you to fly in the dark at very low altitudes, as well as take off and landing from unequipped areas.

    The power plant of helicopters provides for the installation of Russian VK-2500-03 engines with increased power and a strengthened transmission, which makes the application of technology more efficient in high-altitude and hot-climate areas. Helicopters are also equipped with the satellite navigation system "BMS-indicator", as well as the digital navigation system CNS-02.

    All helicopters will be adapted to the installation of laser on-board defense systems.


    The bmpd comment. Recall that the helicopters Mi-8AMTSH-1 in the kit "Salon" were developed initially by the decision of the Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation N. Makarov dated July 1, 2011, and two such helicopters costing 304 million rubles each were supplied by UUAZ by the Ministry of Defense December 1, 2012 under a contract dated August 1, 2011, for use by the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation and the Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. The order of these helicopters was actively used in a campaign in the media against the then Defense Minister A.E. Serdyukov. At least one more helicopter of such a configuration was later manufactured for aviation by the FSB.

    The Far East will be covered with a sea air shield
    The Pacific Fleet is creating a new army of air force and air defense


    https://iz.ru/679966/sergei-valchenko-aleksei-ramm-evgenii-andreev/dalnii-vostok-prikroiut-morskim-vozdushnym-shchitom

    In 2018, naval aviation and air defense forces of the Pacific Fleet will be united as part of a powerful army with a headquarters in Kamchatka. The new operational association will include at least two divisions - the aviation and air defense forces. He is charged with controlling the air situation in Kamchatka, Chukotka and in the Arctic region. According to experts, the formation of the Air Force and Air Defense Forces in the neighborhood with Alaska testifies to the buildup of the Pacific Fleet's strike potential.
    As Izvestia was informed by the Defense Ministry, the formation of the army of the Air Force and Air Defense will begin in 2018. It will include aviation units, anti-aircraft missile and radio-technical troops.
    The area of responsibility of the future operational association extends from the Northern Kurils to the Arctic island of Wrangel

    Such transformations also occur in other fleets. In December 2015, the 45th Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Northern Fleet was formed. As Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu then said, this was done to strengthen airspace control in the Arctic.
    Simultaneously with the formation of the Pacific army of the Air Force and Air Defense, the structure of the air forces is changing. Instead of the amorphous and poorly managed "airbases" created after the not entirely successful reform of 2008, regiments and divisions are being recreated. The combined aviation regiments, along with the squadrons of anti-submarine and transport aircraft, fighters, reconnaissance and missile carriers, will include units of unmanned aerial vehicles.

    The basis of the new army's grouping will be the one stationed in Elizovo near Petropavlovsk- Kamchatka 317th mixed air regiment and the 53rd air defense division based there. As part of the air regiment, there is a squadron of anti-submarine aircraft with upgraded Il-38N Novella. In Elizovo, high-altitude interceptors Mig-31 are also based. In Kamchatka, there are also squadrons of helicopters and drones. The military department does not exclude that some forces will be replenished with new equipment in the future.
    As part of the 53rd Air Defense Division - the radio and anti-aircraft missile shelves. As well as radar posts, aviation commandant's offices, aviation guidance points located in Kamchatka, Chukotka, Wrangel Island and other areas of the Russian northeast.

    The forces of aviation and air defense under the united command will be able to quickly monitor threats in their area of responsibility and effectively counter them. The task of the grouping is to eliminate the sudden air attack, to immediately stop any attempts to test the Russian borders for strength. The Air Force and Air Defense Army will operate in a single control loop with the main forces of the Pacific Fleet and the entire Eastern Military District

    As the military expert Aleksey Leonkov told Izvestia, the creation of such formations in the Pacific direction is very timely.
    This region has recently become "hot." US military activity here has increased several times under the pretext of the North Korean missile threat, - explained Alexey Leonkov. - In the area of Chukotka and Kamchatka, we directly border Alaska, where large air and sea bases of the USA are built. In the Pacific, the United States has six aircraft carriers.
    According to the expert, the formation of the air force and air defense armies can be regarded as an asymmetric response to the activity of US military aviation.
    The concentration under the single command of reconnaissance and strike capabilities of naval aviation and air defense forces is a significant deterrent for any aggressive encroachment, "said Aleksei Leonkov
    It is expected that in the second phase of the structural reform, another army (???) of the Air Force and Air Defense will be part of the Pacific Fleet with its subordinate units deployed in Primorye. The zone of its responsibility will include Sakhalin, the Kuriles, the Sea of Japan and the Sea of Okhotsk. Near the Pacific borders of Russia from time to time appear with incomprehensible intentions large aircraft carriers of the United States.



    comment @AMCXXL:

    As I said before in this forum , it is sense of the reform of the aviation in course is the one to recompose armies, divisions and regiments

    There are 4 "terrestrial" districts with 4 VVS and PVO armies and it seems that there will be 4 "marine districts" that defend the peninsulas, islands and exclaves of Russia: Kamchatka, Kola, Crimea, Kaliningrad that could have their own Joint Strategic Commands with one VVS and PVO army,  based on the air forces (figthers, bombers, etc...) , air defense forces (Missiles and radiotecnical) and also Naval aviation (shipborne and antisubmarine aircraft)  located in those demarcations

    This news confirms the omen. A new Joint Strategic Command will be created in the Pacific based on a PVO division and the Kamchatka "air base"
    These formations are noth enough for an Army, only for an Army Corps size unit.
    Later another army corps size unit with another PVO division and the "air base" of the East district (Nikolayevka, Knevichi, Monghokto) will join the JCS Pacific.

    This means probably the 865 IAP of Yelizovo with MiG-31 will be upgraded from squadron to regiment , and is very probably that this fleet also receive as the other fleets, one regiment of Su-30SM for have at least a second regiment of fighters. A new figther regiment could be stationed in Sakhalin Island (Dolinsk-Sokol) or well in Primorie (Zolotaya Dolina). Also any regiment of Primorie could be trasnferred to this new Military District

    In the distant future you should also have regiments of shipborne fighters, such as the 45th VVS i PVO of JSC North, when Russia finally builds an aircraft carrier


    In the same way, is expected that 72 AvB of Kaliningrad will be the base for new regiments.
    689 IAP with the squadron of Su-27P from the 72 AVB and a second squadron of repaired Su-27P or 27SM´s, willl be reopened when Chkalovsk is reopened
    4 OMShAP with the sqdn. of Su-24 and next year other complete sqdn of Su-30SM will be restored in Chernyakhovsk
    With this división and other división PVO with anti-aircraft misiles could be formed other Army or Army Corps of VVSiPVO in the Kaliningrad garrison ,managed by the Baltic Fleet.

    This could be the future military territorial organization:

    The Ministry of Defense of Russia began purchasing Diamond DA42T aircraft as training
    entry is in top200 rating

    December 26Th, 4:39



    As reported on December 25, 2017 by the Department of Information and Communications of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Deputy Minister of Defense Yuri Borisov visited the Urals Civil Aviation Plant (UZGA) in Yekaterinburg on a working visit.


    38416697105_7d6a38112c_o

    The Diamond DA42T aircraft (on-board number "054"), intended for delivery to the Ministry of Defense of Russia, in the shop of JSC "Ural Civil Aviation Plant" (UZGA). Ekaterinburg, December 25, 2017 (with) Alexey Ivanov / TRK "Zvezda"

    (Collapse)


    Speaking at a meeting with the company's staff, Yury Borisov said that the Russian Defense Ministry planned from 2019 on further purchases of Vorpost drones, improved taking into account combat experience in Syria and assembled entirely from Russian components.

    "In Syria," Forpost "has proven itself from the very best side. Therefore, we are making plans for the next decade to use these complexes. Naturally, they will undergo modernization, "Yury Borisov explained.

    He thanked the employees of the plant, who were constantly at the airbase of Khmeimim in Syria, where they provided maintenance for unmanned vehicles.

    "The plant supplied about 30 Forpost complexes to the troops, but they were still assembled from imported components. At the request of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the plant has performed work on import substitution and we are discussing plans for ordering a new contract in 2019 with 100% localization. Thus, "Outpost" will be entirely Russian, "- said Yuri Borisov.

    The reconnaissance unmanned fleet "Forpost" includes three aircraft and a ground control station. The weight of one aircraft is 500 kilograms. He is capable of reconnaissance from a height of five kilometers for 16 hours at a distance of up to 400 kilometers.

    Yuri Borisov also said that "the Ministry of Defense has a firm contract for 35 training aircraft that will be used to train cadets of military transport aviation."

    According to him, in 2017, three aircraft were delivered. In 2018, the state joint tests will be completed.

    "In the plans for next year there are already 17 aircraft, and in 2019, another 15. Total will be 35 aircraft delivered," - explained Yuri Borisov.

    He also noted that the Defense Ministry has plans to use the aircraft as a platform in other areas, including as a patrol.

    In addition, the Ministry of Defense of Russia was interested in aircraft L-410.

    "It interests us for use in difficult weather conditions, for landing on water, on snow. We provided a modification of the float and ski, so that it could be used in the interests of including special operations forces, "Yury Borisov said.

    The multi-purpose 19-seat L-410 aircraft is produced at the Ural Civil Aviation Plant in two versions: as a training and transportation vehicle for cargo and passengers.

    Modernization of the aircraft by the plant means, first of all, the replacement of the on-board equipment with the domestic one, the change in landing gear of the chassis is a ski chassis for landing on snow and a float for landing on water. In addition, a landing gear for landing on a soft ground, unprepared platform is being developed.


    The bmpd comment. Thus, we are talking about the beginning of the purchase by the Ministry of Defense of Russia of light two-motor four-seat aircraft Diamond DA42 NG Twin Star, produced by the Austrian company Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH, to be used as training aircraft for preparation for the Ural Civil Aviation Plant (UZGA) cadets of military transport aviation of the Russian Air Force. The DA42 NG airplanes are equipped with Austro Engine AE 300 aviation diesel engines from Austro Engine, owned by the same Diamond Aircraft,

    Recall that the issue of the acquisition by the Ministry of Defense of Russia aircraft Diamond DA42 NG as training was instituted in 2010-2011. In 2013, UZGA received a contract from the Ministry of Defense to create a specialized training version of the DA42 NG, designated DA42T. Earlier it was reported that the assembly of DA42T at UZGA was to begin in 2015, and in 2016 it was planned to achieve their localization of the level of supposedly 100%. However, in fact, the assembly of these machines for the Ministry of Defense was started, as can be seen from the above message, only now.

    UZGA also participates in the development of manned and unmanned observation platforms based on DA42 aircraft (such platforms based on DA42 are widely used all over the world). As it was already reported, in 2016 the Russian FSB purchased two DA42M NG aircraft from the UZGA with additional equipment for use in reconnaissance variant "for provision of state needs". Now the interest to such complexes on the basis of DA42 NG is shown by the Russian Defense Ministry. It should be noted that such aircraft are widely used

    Is logical.
    A new Air Army of VVS i PVO is going to be raised in the Pacific area (Kamchatka, Sakhalin and Kuril islands) , and now there are only a base in Yelizovo with only a squadron of MiG-31 , other of Il-38 and other of Helicopters , so more units are going to be necesary

    Burevestnik airbase at Iturup island already has a helicopter detachment with Mi-8AMTSh , subordinated to the helicopter regiment of Khabarovsk
    https://yandex.com/maps/11446/kurilsk/?ll=147.628359%2C44.920456&z=17&l=sat%2Cskl
    However there is a new civil airport in Iturup , and probably the units will be based at this new airport (Yasny) 
    https://yandex.com/maps/?ll=148.015456%2C45.288730&z=12&l=sat%2Cskl

    Is very probable that at this new airbase and at the airbase of Dolisnk-Sokol at Sakhalin island (in service but empty of units), new units will be formed in next years
    In the past in both airbases there were regiments of MiG-23 until 1993 (Burevestnik) and MiG-31 untill 1997 (Dolinsk-Sokol)

    For the new Air Army are necesary at least two figther regiments, so is probable the MiG-31 squadron will be upgraded to regiment once receive modernized MiG-31BM, and later other Su-30SM regimient will be raised for the Pacific Fleet


    https://ria.ru/defense_safety/20180201/1513764924.html
    MOSCOW, February 1 (Itar-Tass) - RIA Novosti.

    Sorry if this has been mentioned before.
    does anyone know why Russia is purchasing 35 Diamond DA42 Twin Star trainers from Austria? doesn't Russia have anything similar? also the article states purchase of 18 L-410 Czech transport I thought Russia was focused on Russia produced equipment thought this was a bit risky especially all these sanctions being implemented.
