    Russian Helicopters still analysing revival of Mi-14 amphibian

    Russian Helicopters has yet to make a final decision on whether to revive production of the Mil Mi-14 amphibious rotorcraft.

    In July 2015 the company raised the prospect of restarting the programme, which has been dormant since the mid-1980s, but Alexander Shcherbinin, deputy chief executive of business development at the manufacturer, says the project is “still under consideration”.

    Speaking in an interview with Russian news agency TASS, Shcherbinin said market demand, feasibility studies – including with Moscow’s defence ministry – and funding sources, are all under review.

    Preliminary analyses suggest a re-introduction of the Mi-14 would appeal to civil operators in Russia’s far north and those supplying the oil and gas industry, alongside the nation’s armed forces, he says.

    However, alongside a modernised version of the Mi-8-based helicopter, the manufacturer is also considering alternative possibilities, he says.

    Nonetheless, the programme remains a “priority” for Russian Helicopters, says Shcherbinin.

    Nearly 300 Mi-14s were produced at Kazan Helicopters between 1973 and 1986, however Flightglobal’s Fleets Analyzer database records just 44 examples in active service. Operators include Georgia’s army, the Polish Naval Air Arm, and the Syrian air force.

    MOSCOW, January 14 - RIA Novosti. About two-thirds of the planes and helicopters in service with the naval aviation of the Navy of Russia, will be upgraded by 2017, said on Thursday the chief of naval aviation of the Russian Navy, Major General Igor Kozhin.

    "I can say without hiding any figures that about one third of the aircraft we have already replaced with new ones. Modernization work has provided for a third aircraft of the machines already delivered aircraft repair plants, ie in the region of 2016-2017, we just get an update park ", - he said on the TV channel" Russia 24 ".

    In 2008, Russia began large-scale military reform, the key point of which was a program of rearmament. In 2010 it was decided to re-allocate up to 2020, 20 billion rubles to increase the share of new equipment to 70%.

    I have a question, wanted to know if someone can explain to me. I just came across this pic in russianplanes.net
    http://russianplanes.net/id186156
    It is clearly a standard, non-modernized Su-27 (either P or S, the author states it is a P). It is not a Su-33 (no canards, long sting, no tailhook). And whoever took or uploaded the picture also claims that this plane belongs to the Russian Navy. At first I thought it was an error on the part of the author/uploaded of the pic (quite common), but see the fin and you will see written "VMF Rossii". Does the Russian Navy operate Su-27? I know that they have Su-33 and Su-30SM, but I've never seen a Su-27 and up to now I was sure they didn't. Can it be fake/photoshop?

    There is a squadron of Su-27P's in Kaliningrad which fall under the control of the Baltic Fleet. This may be one of those.

    Thanks, I knew about the Kaliningrad Su-27Ps, but I thought they belonged to the air force.
    Anyway, the picture is a bit suspicious for me, for other reasons also, and I am not very sure of its authenticity. What is that strong flash near the outer pylon? There is no light there, and it is strange that such a sharp surface as the leading edge would reflect so much light.

    I have heard it both ways. Even if they are Air Force, they are under control of Naval Aviation.

    They became part of Airforce in 2012. from what i am aware.

    "Two Russian warplanes flew simulated attack passes near a U.S. guided missile destroyer in the Baltic Sea on Tuesday, the U.S. military said, with one official describing them as one of the most aggressive interactions in recent memory.

    The repeated flights by the Sukhoi SU-24 warplanes, which also flew near the ship a day earlier, were so close they created wake in the water, with 11 passes, the official said. The planes carried no visible weaponry, the official said on Wednesday.

    A Russian KA-27 Helix helicopter also made seven passes around the USS Donald Cook, taking pictures. The nearest Russian territory was about 70 nautical miles away in its enclave of Kaliningrad, which sits between Lithuania and Poland.

    "They tried to raise them (the Russian aircraft) on the radio but they did not answer," the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity, adding the U.S. ship was in international waters.

    The U.S. military on Wednesday released photos and videos of the incidents. In one photograph, an SU-24 appears to pass at extremely low altitude over the Donald Cook's bow.

    The events were reminiscent of the Cold War, when a series of close calls led to a bilateral agreement aimed at avoiding dangerous interactions at sea that was signed in 1972 by then-Secretary of the Navy John Warner and Soviet Admiral Sergei Gorshkov.

    The agreement prohibited "simulated attacks against aircraft or ships, performing aerobatics over ships, or dropping hazardous objects near them." The accord can be seen here: www.state.gov/t/isn/4791.htm. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said, "This incident ... is entirely inconsistent with the professional norms of militaries operating in proximity to each other in international water and international airspace."

    During those flight operations, a Russian Sukhoi Su-24 combat aircraft appeared and conducted about 20 overflights, coming within 1,000 yards of the ship at an altitude of about 100 feet, the defense official said. In response, the commander of the Donald Cook suspended flight operations.

    Surely the next generation of combat helicopters will have important differences with what we know now. I tend to think that the next generation of combat helicopters can be unmanned. It will or would take time to reach a good level (maybe 10-15 years) for unmanned combat platforms, but it seems to be the right moment to focus the efforts on important changes in the concept of helicopter in a longer timeline, because these changes will come sooner or later, and maybe better to take early the right solution.

    Surely it means longer life for the current models in service, something affordable in my opinion, because all the current models of combat helicopters in service are still in production. Even the veteran Mi-14 is returning to production. Today the entire range of roles for combat helicopters is covered by current models in production.

    While I see a little easier to reach the necessary level on unmanned platforms to do the role of maritime patrol (with minimal attack power), surely unmanned platforms with important attack capabilities will come later, but both areas can have a lot of synergies, since the option to do maritime patrol from shipborne platforms drive the solutions for both roles to similar sizes.

    In both cases, maritime patrol and combat helicopters, I think the unmanned technology is coming, and new models done by the old mold that begin to be developed now and would not be launched before than 5-7 years, can become obsolete early in their life of service (maybe after only 10-15 years in production).

    For procurement of new units of helicopters in the short-mid term, I see right the option of variants of the current models in production.

    For procurement in the long term I see right the option of a new helicopter of next generation with significant changes improving the concept of helicopter (surely the most important of them can be the change to unmanned platforms).

    Also the Mi-14 can be a good option to take into account in the selection process, surely in the new units there are interesting updates.
