    A helicopter with a hybrid power plant is being developed in Russia. His preliminary project is already ready. The technical appearance of the new aircraft will correspond to the promising scientific and technical level of development of helicopter technology for the next two decades.

    This was reported to TASS by the press service of the Advanced Research Fund. Its specialists are engaged in the development together with the Russian Helicopters holding.

    It is assumed that the new helicopter will be competitive, including in relation to foreign counterparts - in terms of speed, range, flight duration, increased reliability and versatility of use. The developers plan to achieve these technical characteristics precisely through a hybrid installation, an electromechanical transmission, electric power actuators and a combined control system with artificial intelligence technology.

    The new helicopter can be used in search and rescue and medical operations. He will be able to fly 50 kilometers for seven minutes with two casualties and two medics on board and stay in the air for up to seven hours.

    Urals army aviation brigade beefed up with world’s largest Mi-26 transport helicopter


    YEKATERINBURG, October 28. /TASS/. The world’s largest serial-produced Mil Mi-26 heavy transport helicopter arrived for a squadron of the Central Military District’s army aviation brigade stationed in the Chelyabinsk Region, the District’s press office reported on Wednesday.

    "The Mi-26 crew and the formation’s ground personnel received the combat vehicle at the manufacturing factory in the Rostov Region where the helicopter had undergone profound maintenance and its assemblies, systems and navigation equipment had been upgraded," the press office said in a statement.

    Following this, the pilots made a flight to a distance of over 2,000 km with two re-fueling operations and arrived at the home airfield. The helicopter entered service with the transport helicopter unit and completed the unit’s formation, the statement says.

    A Mi-26 heavy multi-purpose transport helicopter is the world’s largest serial-produced transport chopper with a maximum take-off weight of 56 tonnes and a lifting capacity of 20 tonnes. The helicopter can transport up to 70 paratroopers or 85 passengers.

    The Urals army aviation brigade was set up on December 1, 2018. The brigade operates Mi-24P gunships, Mi-8MTV5-1 transport and combat helicopters and the world’s biggest Mi-26 heavy transport and air assault rotorcraft.

    For the moment no new Mi-26 this just the assignment of destination to a Mi-26 built in past years
    In Uprun only two Mi-26s appear on Google Maps, however 4 Mi-26s were manufactured for this brigade, so the rest of Mi-26s have probably been destined now

    Mi-8AMTSh-VN confirmed the characteristics of the airborne assault vehicle

    The newest transport and combat helicopter Mi-8AMTSh-VN, during the past tests, confirmed its strike and assault capabilities as a flying airborne combat vehicle. It is reported by RIA News with reference to a source in the military-industrial complex.


    The interlocutor of the news agency called the helicopter "a multifunctional machine for performing shock, assault and airborne transport tasks", this was achieved thanks to the improved complex of controlled weapons and increased survivability.

    The prototype Mi-8AMTSh-VN in recent tests fired guided missiles of the Ataka-VM complex at targets imitating enemy armored vehicles. (...) also used unguided rockets and cannons in overhead containers. The shooting was recognized as successful.

    - said the source, adding that in fact the helicopter confirmed the characteristics as a flying combat vehicle of the landing.

    The start of flight tests of the Mi-8AMTSh-VN transport and combat helicopter was reported in July this year. The first batch of 10 helicopters will go into service in 2021, all of them will be delivered to the army brigades aviationworking in the interests of the Airborne Forces.

    The Mi-8AMTSh-VN helicopter is an improved version of the Mi-8/17 helicopter, created taking into account the Syrian experience. It is equipped with VK-2500-03 gas turbine engines with an upgraded transmission and improved climatic characteristics and a new carrier system. In addition, the helicopter was equipped with an updated armament, the main feature of which was the use of special suspension on the farms of two course machine guns of 12,7 mm caliber. The cockpit and main components of the helicopter are covered with titanium alloy armor, and the cockpit floor and sides up to the windows are covered with removable Kevlar armor.

    A new flight and navigation equipment was installed on the helicopter. To increase the combat survivability, the principle of a combination of a "glass cabin" and reliable analog instruments has been applied. The machine is adapted for use at night.

    Mi-8AMTSH-VN is equipped with the LSZ-8VN defense complex, which automatically detects the launch of missiles by helicopter, interferes with their guidance heads and emits false thermal targets.
