      Ilyushin Unveils Il-38 ASW Upgrade for Russian Navy
      by Vladimir Karnozov
      - February 7, 2017, 7:36 AM

      http://www.ainonline.com/aviation-ne...e-russian-navy
      The Ilyushin design bureau and the Russian navy have revealed details of a mission systems upgrade and airframe refurbishment of the Il-38 antisubmarine warfare (ASW) aircraft. At a ceremony on January 31 at Ramenskoye airbase south of Moscow, Russian naval aviation commander Gen. Igor Kozhin said that about 30 of the 54 Il-38s in the inventory will be modernized, in a program that will continue until 2025.

      Nikolai Stolyarov, director for special aviation programs with United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), said Ilyushin and its sister companies Myasischev and Aircraft Repair Plant No.20 have fulfilled the second defense ministry order for Il-38Ns (for five and three aircraft, respectively). He added that these companies continue lifetime-extension and modernization work on other military versions of the baseline Il-18 in service with Russia's Air and Space Force. This platform has proved itself as very reliable, durable and robust airplane. We hope the Il-38N program would resumeafter successful completion of special flight trials that will commence shortly.

      The N version of the Il-38 features the Novella P-38 search and sighting system from St.-Petersburg-based Leninets, which replaces the outdated Berkut-38 on the original Il-38, 65 of which were delivered from 1967 to 1972. The system can track 32 targets simultaneously and has detection range against aircraft of 90 km (50 nm) and sea-going targets of 320 km (173 nm). The Indian Navy was the only export customer, and it still operates five Il-38SD with the Sea Dragon sensor suite, which is an exportable version of the Novella.

      With all-up weight of 68 tons, the Il-38 has a crew of seven and a range of 9,500 km (5,126nm). It is broadly similar to the P-3 Orion, which has filled a similar ASW role with the U.S. Navy. According to Ilyushin, the Il-38N is intended for long-endurance anti-submarine patrols over sea, with simultaneous search for aerial and sea-going targets. In addition, the aircraft can set mine fields and perform search-and-rescue and ecological monitoring duties. Its arsenal of torpedoes, mines, depth charges and buoys has been extended though addition of the PL250-120 Zagon anti-submarine guided bombs. Indian Il-38SDs can fire the Kh-35, whereas the Russian navy decided not to equip its aircraft with anti-ship missiles.

      The Il-38N that was accepted during the January 31 ceremony (RF-755345) was the eighth to be upgraded. It is the second Il-38N to be delivered to the Russian navy's 859 Center in Yeisk on the Black Sea coast for combat use, flight training and type conversion. Commander Gen. Alexei Serdyuk said his center will use these airplanes to train Pacific and Northern Fleet aircrews. We will employ them on special trials and working out new tactics, he added

      After the ceremony, Gen. Kozhin told journalists that the Il-38 and Tu-142 will continue the primary ASW types in the Russian inventory. These are old platforms, but we expect a substantial increase in their capabilities through the renewal of their mission equipment. Other maritime nations will be surprised at the new capabilities these types will demonstrate after modernization, he declared.

      Kozhin described the Il-38 as the first indigenous ASW aircraft capable of long-duration flights over ocean, and it is still capable of search and annihilation of submarines. He praised Ilyushin for producing such a uniquely durable and reliable machine. It has been operational with the navy for more than 50years with minimal attrition. Despite its rather serious age, this aircraft is made very capable through yet another modernization program. The President and defense minister have set the goal to bring the share of new and modernized aircraft in the Russian naval aviation inventory up to 70 percent. We are on track with that.

        From the looks of it, since May 2016 when it was launched, the "work progress" of last 9 months indicates there is some problem with funding. They built and launched the hull really fast, but now it looks hardly been worked upon.
        There was another tanker showcased, Pr.23131, which had a keel laying ceremony @ Zaliv and then it disappeared completely.

        I'm not sure if the idiots at the top have had a change of mind and is now only looking at the new larger Universal marine tanker which was displayed in September 2016 and was hoping to built it in Germany (& good commission for those involved, I guess).
        I'd posted it here

                  Zvezda's marine diesel engines. They still do not have an updated product list to show the M150. But this is going to be the successor to the 3rd generation 470 series and its safe to say its the 4th Gen marine diesel from Zvezda. These high speed engine will replace the MTUs in 12200 Sobol and 12150 Mangust among others.

                  I simply cant get why the Russian manufacturers are not diversifying the use of their diesel engines in the international market.
                  For example, take the V92S/2F, they could make use of this as power generator and market it. In India, its being manufactured under licence as part of T-90 program, but no one have explored the option of having another income generating route for the PSUs by making use of that engine.

                  Even though its common to tag Russian diesel engines as having poor life compared to their western counterparts, actual combat/employment shows they have the reliability and life to endure the most harshest usage without even proper/periodic service. As an example, the V84 is generally rated by the "experts" as having just 800 hrs life where as in Syria, the tankmen have been using their tanks without service for 4-6 months continuous. The modest operating hours per day we can derive for these tanks on urban combat, which does not have any auxiliary power but solely depend on their running engines, is 8 hours/day....which translate to over 1,400hrs for the V84 in the harshest of the conditions.

                  Then there is the utter bias against Russian engines or due to the possibility of good incentives from western manufactures for their products as can be seen in the Indian context. Consider three engines.

                  MTU MT-883 Ka-501 powerpack (engine + transmission + cooling), Arjun MBT
                  - ~ 24 liter, 1,400hp, 6,000Kg bulky old stuff.
                  It needs more than double the compartment space as taken by the V84/92S and is single major contributor to the hull length and total weight of the tank.

                  V-92S engine (T-90MBT)
                  - ~ 38 liter, 1,000hp, ~1050Kg all aluminium engine.
                  It uses less than half the space needed for MTU. V92S2F is currently @ 1,130hp. I hope the new middle east customer who chose T-90MS demand a 1,250hp V-92S version, its the only way I see the guys working on yet again uprating this engine.

                  Cummins QSK-38, promoted/considered for replacement for the MTU engine for Arjun & future project.
                  - ~ 38 liter, upto 1,260 hp, 4,100Kg (engine alone)

                  And yet, no one thought or explored about uprating the V-92S to the level of QSK-38, but rather wanted to go in for a completely new one.


                  Quite little OT there, but hope Zvezda do a good job with their new diesels and keep a strict quality control and assurance on the products delivered. Hope a repeat of what happened with some of their earlier deliveries does not happen.

                    Shoigu with some extremely revised timelines: two 22350 frigates will enter service before the end of 2020....the only question here is, will Gorshkov be part of these two ?

                        2025 naval aviation of the Russian Navy will be equipped with the latest and deeply upgraded shipboard helicopters

                        https://vpk.name/news/177172_do_2025...rtoletami.html
                        TSAMTO. March 15th. The Russian Navy plans are determined to equip the Navy Naval Aviation shock, anti-submarine, search and rescue helicopters and radar picket helicopters in the period up to 2025.

                        These plans are synchronized with the update of the ship composition of the fleets of the Russian Navy, which is carried out in accordance with the State program of military shipbuilding.


                        Russia's Navy gets its composition newest frigates, corvettes, patrol ships capable of carrying on board the ship's helicopters for various purposes, which will significantly improve the efficiency of implementation of tasks as part of the fleet groupings in the oceans.


                        Along with the deep modernization of the ship's anti-submarine helicopters Ka-27PL, located at Naval naval aviation weapons, the High Command of the Navy embarked on a program for equipping the Navy with new types of helicopters for the period up to 2025. We are talking about the attack helicopters Ka-52K, radar picket helicopter Ka-31P, as well as the ship's helicopters Ka-226T, can be placed on the ships of small tonnage.


                        Currently, on the instructions of the High Command of the Navy carried out a number of development projects to create radically new in its capabilities of aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles and aircraft weapon systems.


                        The need for further development and equipping of the new naval aviation aircraft was reaffirmed in the course of October 2016 to February 2017 on a long voyage the ship aircraft carrier task group of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean Sea.


                        Then the rich, in their composition, wing heavy aircraft carrier (heavy aircraft carrier) "Admiral Kuznetsov", including the Su-33, MiG-29K carrier-based helicopters Ka-52, Ka-27PL and Ka-27PS and Ka-29, fulfill the whole range of tasks in the airspace over the sea and the land.


                        Naval aviation TAVKR and other warships naval aircraft carrier group hike each mile used to improve the flying skills and practical experience. It was made more than 750 flights to perform search and rescue tasks, aviation and transport security, air reconnaissance and maintain a favorable operational regime. Within two months of participation in the military operations against terrorist wing cruiser performed 420 sorties, 117 of them at night.


                        "Navy performs complex tasks as part of groups in the far sea zone. Helicopter component forces at sea is an essential element in ensuring the quality and performance of these tasks. Understanding this is and at the High Command of the Navy and naval helicopters from the manufacturers ", - said Russian Navy Commander Admiral Vladimir Korolev at the meeting with the designers of" Kamov ", reports the Department of Information and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation Ministry of Defence.

                          Quiet and very dangerous

                          http://nationaldefence.ru/includes/p...5/detail.shtml

                          Good Details on 06363 Kilo Submarine of Russian Navy

                          SSK Project 06363 developed by CDB ME "Rubin" team led by chief designer Igor Molchanov. Their prototypes are submarines of Project 877/636 "Halibut" (submarines, intended for export to States of the Warsaw Pact, had an informal code "Warszawianka"), created under the direction of Yuri Kormilitsyna. 29 submarines of Project 877/636 different modifications - 24 submarines of Project 877, and the export was built for the Soviet Navy.

                          SSK project 06,363 - deep modernization "halibut". Their underwater displacement - 3950 tons, length - 73 m, width of the body - 10 m. The maximum underwater speed of 20 knots Operating depth - 240 m, the maximum - 350 m, distance diving economic speed - 400 miles, endurance - 45 days . There RDP device, that is, of the diesel engine under the water. The team consists of 52 people. Boats equipped with a rescue hatch, allowing to leave the submerged ship with a depth of up to 250 M. In order to achieve low visibility - especially for noise reduction, widely used shock-absorbing platform, which established mechanisms and protivogidroakusticheskoe cover housing. This single-shaft ships well streamlined. Mover - 7-blade propeller with scimitar-shaped blades. At the stern of the hull on the sides there are water cannons thrusters. immersion processes and automated surfacing submarines.

                          Apart from CDB ME "Rubin" and "Admiralty Shipyards" a great contribution to the development of diesel-electric submarine of the new generation boats made a number of other enterprises of the shipbuilding industry. Thus, hull steel AK-25 are designed for the Central Research Institute of Structural Materials "Prometheus" and made it the Izhora plant. NGO "Aurora", concerns "Okeanpribor" and "Granit-Electron" saturated boats advanced electronics: automated information management system "Lama", "Palladium" submarine control system, control system maneuvering "Pyrite" and the radar system "Tobol". Digital sonar system MGK-400M "Rubicon-M" design CRI "Morphyspribor" passive "hears" mode, enemy submarines at a distance of not less than 16-20 km, and surface ships, and even more - 60-80 km. MG-519E "Harp" sonar detects mines at a distance of 1500 meters or more. Developed means of communication make it possible to receive orders and information from headquarters and by reports on the situation, take target designation from external sources for the use of weapons.

                          Underwater vehicles are heavily armed with six 533 mm bow torpedo tubes are designed for firing 18 torpedoes 53-65K and TEST-71m and 4 missiles (according to some sources, the rocket ammo can be 6 units) complex "Caliber-submarine" class " submarine-ship "(3M-54) and" submarine-to-surface "(3M-14). They are also used for the production of up to 24 min-1 DM, which are accepted in lieu of torpedoes, or parts thereof. The device "Murena" provides a quick recharge torpedo tubes. Air defense submarines surfaced provide eight MANPADS "Igla".

                          In August 2010, the Russian Ministry of Defence has signed a contract with USC for the construction of the project 06363. head SSK submarine B-261 "Novorossiysk" was founded August 20, 2010, launched on June 26, 2014 and handed over to the Navy of the Russian Federation of August 22 the same year. On August 10 - September 21, she made the transition from the Arctic to the place of permanent deployment - Novorossiysk (. for details, see the magazine "National Defense №10 / 2015), which became the first combat unit recreated 4 th separate brigade of submarines Black Sea Fleet. Following the "Novorossiysk" joined the Navy diesel-electric submarine B-237 "Rostov-on-Don" (30 December 2014) and the B-262 "Stary Oskol" (July 3, 2015), who also relocated to the Black Sea.

                          The fate of the first three boats series evolved on one scenario: after the transfer of the Navy, they worked through the course of combat training in the Baltic Sea, then went to the North, where the Barents Sea and deep-sea diving made 3M-54 fired rockets and 3M-14 on marine and coastal targets. Then the submarine went to Novorossiysk. "Rostov-on-Don on the way to the Black Sea and had a chance to attack the real purpose (see. Magazine "National Defense" №1 / 2016). December 8 last year, B-237, commanded by Captain 2nd Rank Andrew Adamski fulfilled from a submerged position salvo firing four cruise missiles 3M-14 on objects forbidden in the Russian terrorist organization "Islamic State" in Syria. All the missiles accurately hit the two command posts in Raqqa province. It was the first combat use complex "Caliber-submarine."
