As i said, mark your post as satire. Many technologies Airbus has implemented in the A320 are unknown in Russia. For example laser sinterig of the engine core?
The very idea that a russian aircraft would compete with Airbus or Boeing is so laughable. I guess even Putin laughs about that.
Add the fact that Russia has zero competence in the flight software spectrum, has no composite material production capacity and you get what i mean.
I checked its "orders". All russian and a dodgy egyptian and cuban airline.
Come back when ay A-class airline orders this thing. I dont even say from Europe or America. Lets say, when will Singapore Airline or Asiana order this thing? How about Cathey Pacific?
Since I am not working for Russian engine manufacturers, I don't know what specific manufacturing technologies they use. In the turbines (both discs and blades) they will use anyway some nickel based superalloys (with different characteristics in each, because, of their specific characteristics (e.g
HP turbine blades will be made of a single cristal or single direction oriented cristals in order to improve creep resistance (basically that means better life and resistance at very high temperatures), while the metal used in the turbine disc will have many grains (because at moderate temperature that gives a better fatigue life).Each company, e.g. Rolls-Royce, GE, russian companies etc has some specific variations of these alloys and their usage in manufacturing.
They choose what to use and where to based also on cost and machinability of the alloy, in addition of course to the search of higher strength and temperature capabilities. Saying that Russia, that is a world leader in rocket engines and space engineering cannot have advanced alloys and cannot compete on this field with the west is just silly.
You just opened a couple of articles and quoted (also wrongly) the first words you found there. By the way, in order for you to know for engine core it is meant High Pressor (HP) compressor, combustor(s) and HP Turbine.
And also for the umpteenth time, Airbus does not make engines
, they are only the airframer.
If they cannot compete it is just for political reasons or blackmails from yours or the american government.
It is true that Russia lost almost two decades on the civil aviation industry after the fall of Soviet union(luckily the military aviation industry was mainly preserved), but as I said before the new aircrafts that will be introduced in the next few years are on par or better than western counterparts (if anything just because they are a generation younger, a320 neo is just an aircraft from the 80s with new engines and new wingtip devices on the wings). For the 737 it is even worse, since it is an aircraft from the sixities (it has been modernised twice, but it is a much older design, with all of the problems associated to it).
Russia does have advanced composite material productions. They were among the first on this area... again they lost a lot with the fall of Soviet union, but they are recovering. They produce both fibers and matrix for their composites, they just need to expand the volume of production. They initially used some parts from foreign manufacturers, because it was cheaper in the short term (in the same way that European and American companies often get chinese produced components (yes, even GE), but thanks to the sanctions now they had to invest more on their own production.. this will give probably a delay of one year but a huge improvement internal economy and production capability on the medium and long term.
And finally KRET already does very advanced avionics and control software for the state of the art russian fighter jets... and you know what? They have been tasked to replace american and french components in the superjet and MC21, and those new components will be accepted only if they offer the same or better characteristics than the foreign equivalents...
I understand that you neither work or have a strong university background on a high technological or scientific field, and are just repeating some stupid stereotypes heard elsewhere.
I believe you are professional on your job and a good personal trainer, and you probably earn more than me, but that does not entitle you to speak nonsense on things you have no competence (and also no interest of understanding, from what I see from your posts). Sutor, ne ultra crepidam
