VC Russia conducted a successful launch of a new missile defense system



As reported by the newspaper "Red Star", in the world there are no analogues of a missile of this class and purpose. Thus, the projectile moves at a speed of about 4 km / s. In the near future, we should expect the beginning of mass production and delivery of ammunition.

On the eve of the Russian Defense Ministry, the Russian Defense Ministry told about the successful tests of the latest Russian armament: the airborne hypersonic complex "Dagger", the hypersonic warhead Avangard, the Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile, the Poseidon unmanned underwater vehicle, the Peresvet laser complex and the cruise missile with the nuclear power plant " Burevestnik.

A decade or more ago, i had rather naively asked a retd. US Naval guy the same question, on another forum.

I don't know if he was laughing his ass off, but he did give me a very pointed answer "Son, if you look at it in one way, all our Nuke powered attack subs are a sort of a Nuclear Torpedo, and our Nuke Boomers are a sort of MIRV torpedos. It's just as well for all of us that they are all manned by pretty calm, competent and most important of all, non-suicidal Characters" :D

Russia's new hypersonic missiles were reportedly leaked to Western spies, infuriating the Kremlin
http://www.businessinsider.com/russias- ... ies-2018-7
Russia's Ministry of Defense on Thursday released new footage of two of its most revolutionary weapons systems: a hypersonic Kh-47M2 "Kinzhal" nuclear-capable, anti-surface missile and the Avangard, a maneuverable ballistic missile reentry vehicle specifically made to outfox the US missile defenses arrayed around Europe.The Federal Security Service, known as the FSB, now suspects these systems, each of which cope with the challenges of flight at about 10 times the speed of sound, have been leaked to the West."It was established that the leak came from TsNIIMash employees," a source close to the FSB investigation told Russia's Kommersant newspaper, as the BBC noted. TsNIIMash is a Russian state-owned defense and space company.The US, China, and Russia are all locked in a heated arms race to create weapons that can travel many times the speed of sound, defeating today's missile-defense systems.China and Russia frequently test their weapons and have even fielded a few systems ahead of the US, but their focus is nuclear, while the US seeks a more technically difficult goal.With nuclear weapons, like the kind Russia and China want on their hypersonics, accuracy doesn't matter. But the US wants hypersonics for precision-strike missiles, meaning it has the added challenge of trying to train a missile raging at mach 10 to hit within a few feet of a target.The US's proposed hypersonics could target specific people and buildings, making them useful for strikes like the recent ones in Syria.

Unmanned aerial vehicle "Orion" with Weapons

Image

"Orion" has a maximum take-off weight of 1000 kg and a payload weight of up to 200 kg. The length of the apparatus is 8 m, the wing span is 16 m, the flight duration is 24 hours. The prototypes of the UAV are equipped with a Rotax 914 engine with a power of 86 kW (115 hp), equipped with a turbocharger for increasing altitude. Two-bladed propeller AB-115 with a diameter of 1.9 meters is produced by Aerosila. For serial production of UAVs by Agat, in cooperation with CIAM, the Russian engine APD-110/120 is being developed.

Flight tests of the first prototype UAV "Orion" (onboard number "01") were launched in May 2016. To date, several prototypes of UAVs have been built.

In the front compartment of the Orion UAV, the sight-sighted gyrostabilized optoelectronic system (MES) is designed by Moscow-based NGK SPP on the Argos platform, supplied by DS Optronics (the South African branch of the Airbus group). The MES system has a diameter of 410 mm and a mass of 56 kg. It consists of two thermal imaging cameras with a variable angular field, a wide-angle television camera and a laser range finder / target designator. MOSE can detect and maintain in an automatic mode targets for guided weapons. In the central compartment can be placed a platform with digital cameras or a developed "Phazotron-NIIR" survey radar.

The type of armament suspended under the UAV is unknown, but during the forum "Army-2017" in August 2017 OOO OKB Aviaavtomatika (Kursk) was presentedA new complex of aircraft armament for the UAV (CAVB), developed jointly with OOO "VAIS-Technics" (Zhukovsky). The complex includes three samples of guided bombs - one 25 kg caliber and two 50 kg each, the Aviaautomatika spokesman "said that a 25 kg bomb was dropped from the Orion during the tests.

In addition, the Tactical Missile Armament Corporation (KTRV) also develops guided weapons for use with UAVs.

Russia’s Building Warships Faster Than America—or even China

The Russian navy will get a total of 26 new ships in 2018, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced this week at a reception honoring Moscow’s fleet.At one level, Russia’s official shipbuilding numbers are deceptive. Putin included small boats and support vessels in his tally—ship types the U.S. Navy, for one, rarely bothers to include when it counts its own warships.There are big vessels as well. The Russian navy still possesses large, Cold War-vintage warships that it’s upgrading, including an aircraft carrier and a nuclear-powered battlecruiser that’s one of the biggest surface warships in the world, plus an impressive force of submarinesWhat they are doing is selectively dipping into the best of the old vessels—surface ships and submarines—and giving them more powerful weaponry while accelerating the build rate for smaller combatants with relatively big punch,” Iain Ballantyne, author of The Deadly Trade, a history of naval warfare, told The Daily Beast.The Russian fleet can easily reach from Europe to Asia while still deploying from home ports. Russian territory stretches from Europe’s Baltic Sea to the Bering Strait, where the Russian mainland and the U.S. state of Alaska are only 55 miles apart.The high cost of big, long-range ships has made it difficult for the United States to quickly grow its fleet. President Donald Trump campaigned on a pledge to increase the size of the U.S. Navy to as many as 355 frontline ships. But the Navy recently admitted it could take until the 2050s to reach that goal. In favoring small, short-range ships that cost tens of millions of dollars apiece instead of billions, Russia can grow its own fleet more quickly than the United States can do.Corvettes armed with Kalibrs “can form a small fleet that would be able to come close to an enemy, deliver a missile strike and immediately leave the area,” Russian state media noted.The Kalibr, a rough analogue to the U.S. Navy’s own Tomahawk cruise missile, is central to Moscow’s efforts to build a fleet of small but powerful warships. “Why build a huge surface combatant with all the complexity and expense that entails?” Ballantyne asked rhetorically. “You can churn out smaller vessels with Kalibr missiles and then distribute them to your crucial spheres of interest.”

CIAM PRESENTED PROSPECTS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF HELICOPTER ENGINES

https://www.aviaport.ru/news/2018/06/26/545147.html

At the 11th International Helicopter Industry Exhibition HeliRussia 2018, held in late May, the Round Table "The Present and Future of Engine Building for Helicopters" was held, at which Yuri Fokin, Head of the Small-Scale Gas Turbine Engine (MGTD) Department of the Central Institute of Aviation Motors (CIAM), was the keynote speaker. Below is a systematic presentation of his report.
Introduction

In the 1990-2000s, a dramatic situation developed in the domestic helicopter engine building, due to the fact that after the collapse of the USSR, Russia remained without serial production of helicopter engines, in particular, the main aircraft engine of the TV3-117 family, which was manufactured by Zaporizhzhya Motor Sich enterprise. In addition, for a long time, new domestic helicopter engines were not developed or commissioned. Some projects have been started, but have not been completed, for example, the RD-600 helicopter aircraft engine.

The lack of domestic aircraft engines led to the fact that almost all domestic developed and modified helicopters were used aircraft engines of foreign production. Helicopters Ka-226, Ka-226T, Ansat, Ansat-U, Ka-62, Mi-26 use foreign-made engines. Now we are considering the option of using a foreign engine on a promising medium-sized transport helicopter. Moreover, even on the Mi-38 medium-capacity helicopter, the installation of a foreign engine was originally planned, and only the supplier's refusal to supply engines to Russia forced domestic developers to create a Russian engine (TV7-117V). Today, after many years of discussion, the issue of developing the serial production of VK-2500 engines in Russia has been resolved.

What is done by the "United Engine-Building Corporation"


Since the beginning of this decade, the program of import substitution in helicopter engine construction was launched, within which a very significant amount of work was carried out. The main results can be considered the development of the serial production of the VK-2500 family engines in Russia. In addition to assembling the engines of the basic version entirely from domestic components, work was carried out to create deeply upgraded VK-2500P / PS engines, in particular, VK-2500PС-03 certified for the newest Mi-171A2 helicopter. The VK-2500PS engine is a modification of the VK-2500 engine with a new fully digital control system of the FADEC type. Now the state joint testing of another modification of the VK-2500 VK-2500P engine for the modernized Mi-28NM helicopter, which is in the stage of flight tests, is on the agenda now.

In addition, the helicopter engine TV7-117V for Mi-38 has been certified. The basic version was developed in the 1980s, but the engine was certified quite recently, the Certificate was obtained with certain limitations of the operational range. During 2018, the whole range of measures to expand the operational range within the framework of the Terms of Reference should be completed, Fokin added.

We consider the possibility of developing a PD-12V engine for perspective heavy helicopters and VK-800V for light helicopters. So on the basis of the gas generator of the dual-path engine PD-14, intended for the passenger-oriented MS-21 airplane, the PD-12V engine for heavy Mi-26 helicopters is being developed. As for VK-800, work is now under way on an aircraft engine version intended for use in the power unit of the L-410 aircraft. At the same time, the CIAM supports the resumption of work on the creation of a helicopter version of VK-800V.

Finally, work was started to shape the perspective helicopter engine. At present, the company "ODK-Klimov" forms proposals for a prospective engine under the "Prospective engine for helicopters" program, this project has not yet been examined by CIAM. But so far it is known that an aircraft engine will be offered in a larger class of power than TV7-117V, which exceeds the existing analogues in terms of manufacturability and specific mass.

Creation of advanced scientific and technical reserve


Creation of perspective aircraft engines is impossible without creation of advanced scientific and technical reserve (NTZ). The goals and programs of NTZ development are already defined. In accordance with the adopted program, prospective aircraft engines should have significantly better characteristics in comparison, for example,

Image

The main directions of the development of helicopter aircraft engines


The specialists of CIAM developed seven main directions for the development of aircraft engines for prospective domestic helicopters

Image

Also the task is to improve the methods of 3D-design.

To ensure these directions of work, the CIAM is developing a whole range of breakthrough technologies. Together with the enterprises of the branch, the institute implements a program called "Development of Technologies for Advanced MGTS and AAP", the aim of this program is the creation of eleven demonstrators of advanced technologies.
Demonstration "electric" MGTD;

1 High-speed reducer MGTD;
2 Nozzle apparatus turbine from KM;
3 Heat exchanger for MGTD "complex" cycle;
4 Combustion chamber MGTD with elements from CM;
5 Experimental single-stage pulp and paper mill
6 Experimental two-stage PPM;
7 High-speed stage of helicopter gearbox.
8 Demonstration turbo-compound aviation piston engine;
9 Demonstration MGTD on gas supports;
10 Demonstration rotary-piston engine.


In accordance with the program, in 2017, the planned design studies with conditional leveling for 2025 and 2035 technologies were performed, and in 2018-2019 it is planned to manufacture and test demonstrators.

To achieve the stated progress of the characteristics of helicopter engines, the CIAM defines a set of technologies that allow obtaining products of a given level of perfection. So to "Technologies 2025" are:


1 Two-stage pulp and paper mill;
2 Compact low-emission CS;
3 RK turbine type "Bliss";
4 Impeller of pulp and paper mill from KM;
5 Compressor casing from CM Cabinet of CS from CM;
6 KS Flare pipe from KM;
7 CA turbine from CM;
8 Hybrid bearings;
9 Electric drive of units;
10 Wireless sensors ACS;
11 HIPCs with remote access;
12 MGTD "complex" cycle with maintenance.


"Technology 2035" includes:


1 Uncooled RK turbines from KM;
2 Case details in MS from KM;
3 Uncooled oil supports;
4 Shafts from CM.

From AW&ST

Orders for 15 production Su-57s and 6 MiG-35s placed by the Russian Ministry of Defence. The MiG-35 order size is very small, clearly a bid to keep them afloat and give them a semblance of respectability, by making it an in-production fighter. Will be used to push for export orders.

MOSCOW—Eight years after its first flight, the Sukhoi Su-57 fifth-generation fighter finally has its first order from the Russian military, along with the MiG-35.

The contract for the delivery of the first production Su-57s was signed Aug. 22 between the Russian defense ministry and the aircraft manufacturer, United Aircraft Corp. (UAC).

“The Defense Ministry plans to receive 15 production aircraft in the [near] future,” Deputy Minister Alexey Krivoruchko said. The first fighter is to be handed over in 2019.

The Su-57, previously known as the Sukhoi T-50, was developed under the PAK FA program to replace the fourth-generation Su-27/30 Flanker aircraft in the Russian Aerospace Forces. It made its first flight in 2010. Ten prototypes were involved in the flight-test program, with more airframes used for the ground tests.

In February, two Su-57s were spotted at the Russian military base in Syria, where they have been tested in combat operations. Krivoruchko said these trials have been successful.

The Russian military wants to wait for the fighter to meet all its operational requirements before committing to a larger procurement.
The fighter is now powered by Al-41F turbofan engines (previously known as Izdelie 117), derived from the Al-31F powerplant used by the Sukhoi Flanker family. The 117S variant, with 14.5 tons of thrust, is installed on the Sukhoi Su-35S.

Meanwhile, flight tests of the Su-57 with new, more powerful engines, dubbed Izdelie 30 (Item 30), started in December 2017. The engine is being developed by the Moscow-based Lyulka design bureau, a subsidiary of United Engine Corp. Lyulka says Izdelie 30 increases the thrust-to-weight ratio of the Su-57, enabling it to fly at supersonic cruise speed.

The deputy defense minister said deliveries of the Su-57 with the new engines are expected to start in 2023.


The Russian military on the same day also placed an order for the MiG-35, the modernized variant of the MiG-29 Fulcrum family. The MiG-35 was developed 10 years ago as the Russian offer for the Indian Air Force’s Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft program. The MiG-35 variant for the Russian military was unveiled for the first time in January 2017. Compared to the baseline Fulcrum, this fighter features an upgraded airframe, larger fuel tank, a pair of more powerful Klimov RD-33MK engines and a new electro-optical station.

The defense ministry did not reveal the number of MiG-35s being ordered, but Russian media pegged it at six fighters. The Russian military traditionally relies on heavier fighters of the Sukhoi Flanker family, so a contract for a small batch of MiG-35s likely is aimed at increasing the aircraft attractiveness to foreign clients and to support MiG Corp.’s export sales.

Doesnt look like a prop in a tail . More like a rear ward facing radar or datalink similar to platypus. Putting a prop there requires long landing gear like predator which it doesnt have.

P.S. anyone knows the thingy at 14:55 ? name of system ?



I have to say, Russkies put on some great epic shows. Putin addressing those massed ranks. I get the Cold War goosebumps.

The thingy at 14:55 is the UR-77 anti-mine system.

Thx Austin and chola. Reading up, it seems that's an excellent option for rapid mine clearing under battle conditions and have also been used in urban warfare situations.
I m completely unaware of any analogues in service with our forces. Are there any ? If not, perhaps this is a gap we should look to fill. You can bet if ever cold start happens pakis would heavily mine all potential approaches.

^ not sure of induction, Sir, but this from DRDO- Charge Line Mine Clearing

Image

A Charge Line Mine Clearing (Vehicle) equipment was designed and developed to meet the tactical and strategic requirement of the Army for neutralizing antitank land mines and creating a safe lane for the advancement of tanks or armored vehicles in a mine infested war field. The CLMC (V) consists of an explosive filled hose 300 m long laid in a box and mounted on a two wheeled trailer towed by a tank. The explosive hose is projected onto the minefield by a cluster of six rockets. It gets straightened in flight with the help of parachutes and detonates after landing actuating the anti personnel and /antitank mines by blast. A safe lane 6 m wide and about 250 m long is formed by a single unit.
