Ka-92 and Mi-X1: To catch up and overtake Sikorski

 

 

"Holding" Helicopters of Russia ", in which work is underway to create a promising high-speed helicopter (PSV), continues testing the flying laboratory, aiming to bring its speed to 450 km / h. The other day we managed to reach the speed of 400 km / h, which was reported to RIA Novosti by the head of the holding Andrey Boginsky. "

How can one not remember Khrushchev: "We will overtake and surpass America". In this case, according to a co-extensive theme, Sikorsky's company caught up with us and slowly, but confidently, surpasses us.

Combat helicopter Ka-50 "Black Shark" first came to the international air show in Farnborough in 1992, after which in Sikorsky's firm decided that the modern combat helicopter should have only a coaxial scheme and started creating a demonstrator of such scheme X2, about which A Boginsky "says that X-2 is, in fact, an expensive toy that can find very limited application. Since the maximum take-off weight of X2 is 3,6 tonnes. The Russian flying laboratory exceeds these figures by 4 times. "

That's the trick that the "flying laboratory" is a bluff, and the S-2 Raider combat helicopter, created on the basis of the demonstrator X97, has already "... embarked on an extended test program".

High-speed "Mi-24" 1

 

And on the "high-speed" Mi-24 continue to "set" records: first the colonel - the military representative to 405k / h, and then the head of the holding A.Boginsky - 400k / h. In the future, they promise to reach the speed even in 450k / h.

Read before - after the first display of the "flying laboratory" the designers of the MVZ assured that this speed had already been achieved in June 2016 year. A year has passed, and there is no record in "450 / h"!

But the head of the holding continues to persuade people: "OCD to create PSV should be completed in 2020. It is expected that the new production cars, which now have the Mi-X1 index, will fly at speeds up to 450 km / h and lift up to 4 tons of payloads. "

"Fresh tradition, I can hardly believe it" (Chatsky), in view of the fact that the respected A.Boginsky, it seems to me, lags behind life, for Mi-X1 already "flew" with such speeds:

"Russian designers at the Milya and Kamov Design Bureau at their recent exhibition Helly Rasha made their" application for the future "- presented several models of high-speed helicopters: Mi-X1, Ka-90 and Ka-92. 15 July 2008 year.

The cruising speed of the vehicle is calculated to be 475 km / h, and the maximum speed is 520 km / h. Mi-X1 can reach a static ceiling of 3500 m and have a flight range up to 1550 km.

Nikolay Pavlenko stated that within the framework of the Mi-X1 project, a large complex of scientific research will first have to be done, then it will be necessary to carry out experimental testing of new technical solutions in flying laboratories and technology demonstrators, and only after that it is possible to begin construction of an experienced helicopter. The first Mi-X1 flight, according to Pavlenko, can take place no earlier than 2014-2015. AF »

But such a flight did not take place either in 2014 or in 2015, for the simple reason that a classical helicopter can not even predict the predicted cruising speed (VKRS) even in theory:

"Against the backdrop of the ongoing work on the creation of a commercial high-speed helicopter and controversial rumors about the maximum speed of more than 400 km / h, which is going on gradually (both at the Mil and Kamov firm), there is a certain interest in an article published in the electronic journal Trudy MAI "(No. 55 from 2012 g). The article was written by the ex-General Designer MN Tishchenko and the head of the MAI Department of Helicopter Engineering, BL Artamonov; It is called "Problems of raising the cruise speed of the helicopter and ways to solve them."

  • For "clean helicopters", even taking into account possible future improvements in their design, it is unlikely that Vcrs will be more than 320 km / h (assuming that the ratio of the power plant's power to the weight of the aircraft is within acceptable limits for the commercial vehicle) To a radical increase in the real values ​​of CTW for helicopter propellers is not currently seen.

  • The use of additional propulsive propellers under the condition specified above promises only a slight increase in the value of Vcrs.

  • The presence of a wing that has a higher aerodynamic quality than the rotor, will also increase the Vcrs value only to a small extent. The fact is that the rotor, which is unloaded by the wing, continues to rotate, requiring the cost of power to overcome the profile resistance, which differs little from those for a loaded screw. "

Guarantee of phantom projects like Mi-X1 only in one: to reliably stand in the way of realizing the true projects of high-speed helicopters Ka-92 and Ka-102! The Ka-92 helicopter was supposed to take off at the latest at 2015 year, and the General Designer of "Kamov" SV Mikheev, as is known, perform their promises clearly, but to them - the red light! It's very sad, but the same virtual projects on Mi-X1 are financially funded, which today "sets records" on the basis of the antediluvian Mi-24, which is the reason for refusing to finance Kamov's projects!

In fact, it turns out that the leaders of the holding company "Russian Helicopters" give the palm of superiority in modern helicopters at their own will, giving the Americans a real twist of the helicopter industry of our State. A fairy tale about the high-speed capabilities of a long-obsolete classical scheme are being carried out without ceasing the designers of the cost center with the leaders of the holding from a distant 2008 year.

Is Parshev right about the price?

With the arrival in the shipbuilding of Serdyukov, there will be stools out there now. for the price of helicopters.

This problem is a consequence of the general systemic crisis of the Russian economy: the lack of feedback in its management system. Hence the election of projects for "tridorogo, and the lack of innovation and everything else. For any engineer knows that it is impossible to create a self-regulating system in the feedback loop, the governing body simply does not have a mechanism for evaluating its "control." And there is no this feedback system in the Russian management system because its creation will inevitably lead to the disappearance of the cohort of "effective managers" (that is, the opportunity to attract management to the system on the basis of personal devotion, rather than professional qualities) will disappear. This will inevitably lead to a change in political elites and the loss of power by today's managers. And this is after all - without civil war in society never happened. Such is the "sadness" ...

Exactly. they have one main condition - to create. but in a market economy there is a second - not expensive. only then the products will be competitive. and you can create an inexpensive way only as you say

The problem is not only a systemic crisis, and as a result, a profound abyss in technology and organization of production, whose productivity is at times 25 lower than that of competitors, to create high technologies and such a technique really needs to be a professional able to work in a competitive environment. The existing system of production management is the way to the abyss, although probably already at the bottom of it
