    They are still procuring this? Is Aviakor still producing it? When do they plan to stop production?

    Yes, you are right, my mistake. Anyway, I don't see much sense in continuing production of these aircrafts. Is An-140 still being manufactured?

    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

    This is intereting. It refers to some of the weakest contracts of air equipment, and all have the same factory involved.

    The L-410 and the Diamond DA42 are both small auxiliary aircrafts of foreign orignin and low technological level, that make not a difference in the defense of Russia. The Diamond DA42 has still to pass some tests in 2018, where can have some problems, and likely the L-410 will require some tests too. The UAV includes a little more advanced technology, but at this point is surpassed.

    The three are fairly dispensable for Russia. I do not expect these contracts to be completed.

    If there is budget for these contracts with this factory, it is obvious that the problem would be with the products to produce in the factory. Very likely this factory needs a new strong product to make. Maybe some of the most modern UAVs.

    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.

    Is there any plans for a Russian replacement of the highly successful An-2??? The aircraft was successful both military and civilian service. I know some upgrades were done and antonov wanted to produce a similar aircraft but with Russian and ukrainian bad relationship no purchase or sale would be made. An-2 still have plenty of life (younger versions) but won't be in service forever

    I had heard of plans but didn't see anything but isn't this aircraft for a specific civilian role? Or will it be used as military and other roles? Honeywell engine I would imagine russian military would use something russian built engine

    New sanctions pretty much stop all exports from US to Russia, so I suspect unless they have local production then they will really need a Russian engine...

    The An-2 is an amazing plane and this new model seems to be even better... the problem is that they have been showing aircraft to replace the An-2 for 40+ years now and nothing has managed to replace it... normally cost is the issue.

    What would really boost civilian sales would be a military contract to subsidise production and to Russianise it with all Russian engine, prop, and avionics...

    My understanding is the upgrade was done by a Siberian company, so it should handle the cold weather... which is critical.

    I remember reading an article filled with butthurt... it was by a Ukrainian who was upset that the Ukraine didn't make a similar upgrade of their own aircraft to sell on the international market... salty tears...

    He wasn't anti Russian, but he wanted better for the Ukraine, which I can understand.

    From what I have read it is lighter but able to operate at higher weights over greater ranges with heavier payloads...

    I just wish they would adopt a simpler designation... Sib-2 or something.

    In a free market, this would sell very well in Alaska and Canada and many nordic countries as well as Russia.

    It would probably also sell rather well in the Pacific Islands in a float plane model...

    The orders of An-2 after 1970 were minimal. The Russian Armed Forces keep like 3 active and 4 reserve aircrafts produced after 1970. The production of An-2 between 1971 and 1991 was almost totally for civilian purposes and export.

    Many designs wanted to be the successor of the An-2, but failed both for military and civil purposes. The concept is outdated.
