Russian Navy will get rid of Ukrainian engines

The anti-Russian course chosen by Ukraine in 2014 led to its refusal to supply gas turbine engines to Russia, which created problems for the domestic military shipbuilding.

However, the United Engine Corporation (UEC) managed to create a line of engines that completely covered the needs of the Russian Navy. It is reported RIA News".

As stated by the UEC general designer, Yuri Shmotin, the corporation completed the creation of a line of basic gas turbine engines for the Russian Navy in the range of 8 thousand hp. up to 25 thousand hp

According to him, the lineup includes engines of the M70 family for ships of the Zubr and Murena class on airbags and a very popular M90FR engine for ships of projects 22350 and 20386.

The designer noted that the engines created in the UEC form almost the entire range of power units in which the Russian Navy is in need.

In fact, it can already be said that Russian engine builders closed the gap that arose after Ukraine's refusal to supply engines and undermined Russia's defense.

Similar work is actively carried out in other areas of the Russian military-industrial complex and economics, where at least the slightest dependence on Ukrainian producers was traced.

    It’s high time ... By the way, let the ships be called in the name of Chernomyrdin in Ukraine, which he gear to the detriment of the Russian Federation.

    The main thing is that they do not decide to replace Ukrainian engines with Chinese ones ... otherwise they already tried ...

        Yes, but, fortunately, this was done locally and only on a pair of combat units ... In addition, as far as I know, these were obsolete licensed German engines manufactured in China. Quality, of course, is no longer German. They could then immediately in Germany and buy the same license for the same engines, since they are happy with the Navy GUK. In my opinion, it would be wiser and more profitable from all sides.

    It is necessary to make a complete import substitution not only with Ukrainian components, but also with American and European, on which we are even more dependent.
