    Where is the RVV-SD (Izdelie 170-1) actually produced? Organization of KTRV difficult to decipher.

    Another excellent post, Mr Mfranjic.

    Where is the RVV-SD (Izdelie 170-1) actually produced? Organization of KTRV difficult to decipher.
    Will someone pls tell me how to distinguish the Izdeliye 170-1 from the 170?

    That figures^ TR1. If we look at the VKS/VMF layout posted by.. forgot his name.. the newest VKS and VMF numbers. There is actually very little left from older units Naval aviation. And surly those too will be replaced. If i'm not mistaken, there is only a handfull Su-33 still operational.

    Certainly not an easy task.. The Izd.170-1 is slightly longer (3.71 m instead of 3.6 m) and heavier (190 kg instead of 175 kg).

    Most of them still fly and were recently upgraded, but I don't think this is what the statement was talking about- more Naval Su-24s and Su-27s, maybe even to some extent MiG-31s.

    The R-77-1 and RVV-MD are so similar to original R-77 and R-73 that one would never know what they are looking at by eye ball gazing unless someone physically examines it

    Some one was asking status of Mi-38 Program and the latest news on this

    The flight tests of the new Mi-38 helicopter will be completed within a year

    01/07/2018 9:17:27
    *** The helicopter is to be tested in conditions of heat, frost and high mountains

    . Moscow. Jan. 7. Interfax-AVN - Flight tests of the Mi-38 medium multipurpose helicopter will be completed in 2018, a source in the aviation industry told Interfax.
    "It will be necessary to carry out Mi-38 tests in the highlands, hot climate, frosts and icing during 2018. The entire program will be completed at the end of 2018," the source said. According to him, the main difficulty of the tests in 2018 is the need to "catch" the right weather.

    "During 2017, during the flight tests of the Mi-38, about 400 flights were carried out, and more than a thousand since the beginning of the tests," the source said.
    He said that in December 2017, the Mi-38 "speed tests" were successfully completed.


    In particular, the Mi-38 is considered a high-speed helicopter with a maximum speed of up to 320 km / h and a cruising speed of up to 280 km / h. The tests carried out, as it were, fix speed characteristics for serial helicopters, - the interlocutor of the agency explained.

    He added that also during the flight tests of the Mi-38, an altitude of 6300 meters was reached, flights with a maximum take-off weight of 15.6 tons, flights with external suspension, as well as with watered and "hot" fuel for hot climate conditions were performed.

    The first time I see a Mig-29smt loads 3 fuel tanks and weapons together. If there was another Kab-500kr on the other side wing, the total loadout was over 5 tons.

    this can replace turbo prop aircraft in some situation as it will be faster turn around time at airport.

    https://www.ainonline.com/aviation-n...ter-production
    Russian Helicopters describes it as “one of most automated civil helicopters in the world. Its flight control system provides for automatic flight, landing, stabilization in the hover and all other flight regimes.”
    https://www.ainonline.com/aviation-n...w-mi-38-2-twin
    “We are planning to commence deliveries of a VIP-configured Mi-38 starting around 2017-18,” said Chernyshev. “It will be a more expensive helicopter than the [VIP-configured] Mi-17, but will offer more comfort for passengers.

    CIAM on PD-35 Engine Development

    Are you working on creating a high-thrust engine (PD-35) for a prospective heavy transport aircraft? When can such an engine be created?


    The new two-circuit turbojet engine of large thrust PD-35 is intended for installation on perspective wide-body aircraft, including the Russian-Chinese CR929. It will be much more powerful than the existing D-18T engines for the largest Soviet AN-124 / AN-225 aircraft. Currently, PD-35 is in the stage of research and development (R & D). In the next six years, the necessary scientific and technical reserve will be created for the beginning of experimental design work.

    What will this engine be like?


    Composite materials will be actively used in it. The efficiency of the engine increases with the increase in the degree of the two-circuit, and in this case the fan acquires ever larger dimensions. And the weight of the fan is up to 15% of the weight of the entire engine. The fan blades PD-35, for example, have a length of about 1.1 m, the diameter of the fan at the inlet is of the order of 3 m. The use of metals in this case leads to an unacceptable increase in mass. It is proposed to produce blades made of polymer composite materials with metal overlays. And each kilogram of saving the mass of the fan leads to a reduction in the mass of the entire engine.

    At the same time PD-35 can not be called the sixth-generation engine. The domestic civil engines, relatively speaking, are just beginning the fifth generation. It is likely to be "5+".

    According to the PD-35 program, firstly R & D is being carried out, 18 technologies are being developed, a demonstrator engine will be created on their basis, then with a small "overlap" in time, OCD will begin.

    The PD-35 demonstrator will include all the key features with maximum capabilities: fuel efficiency, ease of manufacture, maintenance, etc. Naturally, such a "super-engine" will not go into mass production, as it will turn out to be too expensive and unprofitable. When the stage of OCD begins, the tasks of developing its specific characteristics will be set, depending on the specific parameters that will need to be achieved in order for this engine to be in demand.

    Now we are developing technologies and the image of the demonstrator for PD-35. To date, all technical specifications for 18 technologies have been agreed upon, they are formed by both industry and us as the leading scientific organization in the field of aircraft engine building. In the framework of R & D, their detailed development, calculations, modeling is planned, then - the production of a sample.

    "Двухконтурный"... it means turbofan, plain and simple, referring to the two channels - hot and bypass.

    That takes me way back to my childhood and all the aviation literature I used to read... They used to call it dubbelströmsmotor (twin stream engine) in Swedish back then, before the semi-anglicism turbofläkt (literally turbofan) eventually took over.

    Russia MOD is completely moving out of Windows to Astra Linux and Russian Hardware CPU

    https://iz.ru/688478/aleksandr-krugl...dows-proshchai
    "A key feature of Astra Linux Special Edition is a unique information security system," said Dmitry Donskoy, deputy director of the company. - OS designed graphical interface. "Operational" is fully compatible with modern computers of Russian production. It works with high-tech domestic processors Elbrus, Baikal-T1 and Comdiv. They are the "heart" of the last generation of supercomputers.

    The general director of Basalt SPO, the developer of the Russian operating system ALT Aleksey Smirnov, in his conversation with Izvestia, praised Astra Linux.

    "This is an extremely stable program that supports various imported and domestic hardware platforms," ​​explained Alexei Smirnov. - Discussions on the complete replacement of foreign operating systems by Russian are conducted for a long time. Now, in connection with the sanctions in all federal bodies, it was decided to switch to the domestic software at an accelerated pace. Without exaggeration, this is a matter of national security. In any case, the security of the Russian OS will be higher than that of the foreign one. After all, there is much more to check the technical possibilities of domestic development. Such a replacement will secure the computers of the military from outside interference.

    Russia set to finalise PBK-500U glide bomb evaluation
    Piotr Butowski - IHS Jane's Missiles & Rockets

    http://www.janes.com/article/76897/r...omb-evaluation
    Vladimir Lepin, head of Russia’s Techmash Corporation, disclosed on 8 January that NPO Bazalt company, a subsidiary of Techmash, is close to accomplishing state evaluations of a new aerial bomb, designated ‘Drel’. “After successful completion of the state tests in 2018, this product is planned to be introduced into the [Russian] inventory,” said Lepin.



    Russia's̛ NPO Bazalt company is set to finalise state evaluations of the new Drel PBK-500U gliding cluster bomb. (Piotr Butowski)

    Drel (drill) is a codename for research and development (R&D) programme for the PBK-500U gliding cluster bomb (Planiruyushchaya Bombovaya Kasseta, 500 kg/1,102 lb, unified), a Russian counterpart to the US Joint Standoff Munition (JSOW). The bomb has a large wing and control surfaces enabling it to glide a distance of over 30 km (16 n miles) when dropped from high altitude. It is controlled by inertial navigation with correction by a satellite positioning receiver. NPO Bazalt has considered equipping the bomb with a pulsejet engine to further increase the range, particularly when dropped from low altitude.

    The PBK-500U cluster bomb can be filled with various charges. The initial production version is filled with small-size guided anti-tank munitions, said Lepin. The bomb contains 15 SPBE-K charges (Samopritselivayushchiysia Protivotankovyi Boevoi Element, self-guided anti-tank combat element, K is for Kombinirovannyi, combined), each weighing 15 kg (33 lb). The charge has a combined guidance with twin-band (3-5 µm and 8-14 µm) infrared seeker and a millimetre-wavelength radar seeker; the radar channel has an identification friend-or-foe (IFF) system. After detecting a tank, the 1 kg (2.2 lb) warhead is launched from an altitude of around 150 m (492 ft) with a speed of 3,000 m/s (9,842 ft per second) enabling penetration of 100 mm (3.9 in) of armour.
