Sanctions Blessed: US Media on the MS-21 Airliner


US sanctions that were imposed against the Russian United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) were a blessing for the MS-21 airliner project. They helped to avoid the "bloody massacre" in the aviation industry caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. This opinion was expressed by the online edition of Defense World.


If mass production of the MC-21 began, as planned, in 2018, with deliveries to customers in 2019-2020, now airlines would cancel their orders due to the pandemic. This would have hit the youngest aviation project most seriously.

Deliveries of the MS-21 to the Russian airline Aeroflot were to begin by 2019 as part of an order for 175 aircraft. Orders were also made by the airlines "Yakutia" and "Beck Air" (Kazakhstan). However, sanctions led to the premature abandonment of the American Pratt & Whitney PW1000G engines, avionics and Honeywell and Rockwell Collins control systems, as well as Hexcel and Toray composite materials. As a result, the terms of testing and certification of prototypes were disrupted.


Resumed testing of prototype MS-21-300, interrupted by the epidemic of coronavirus

UAC had to make major changes to its production plans and replace the PW200 with a PD-14 engine. In addition, until 2023, the KLA wants to abandon imported avionics, including the French Thales, and introduce domestic. In 2018, a tender was announced for Russian manufacturers, but nothing is known about the implementation of the plan.

Until September 2018, Hexcel and Toray supplied six composite wings to Russia, but after the introduction of US sanctions against Aerocomposite and ONPP Technology", Ceased cooperation with the Russians. In June 2019, Aerocomposite announced the completion of its own product development.

In turn, as of March 31, 2020, the number of canceled Airbus orders was 60 aircraft. Boeing, already in a deep crisis due to problems with the 737 MAX, ran into another blow. Leasing company Avolon canceled orders for 75 units of 737 MAXs in the amount of $ 8 billion. The total number of canceled orders was 150. Experts in the aviation industry believe that this volume of air transportation will not return to its previous level before 2023. And by this time, serial production of the MS-21 will be established.

    All Western "partners" have shown their insecurity. Concluding important agreements with them is not worth it. We need to develop our plants and technologies, and for this we need to introduce elements of the State Planning Commission in the Russian Federation.

      This Russia has proved that it is a wild country with which it is impossible to have any business. You do not have and will not have your technologies, because nobody needs them. And people with brains, with ideas dump and will dump to where their brains can provide them with a decent life, and not 35 thousand wooden a month.

        No matter how you squeal and spray with your smelly poisonous saliva, pouring mud on everything that is connected with Russia, we, despite everything, will survive and fully restore our economy. And the West, it seems, will soon expect very big transformations and changes, and not for the better for it. Time will tell who is right, who is not !!!

        For 30 years they have been “dumped" and they still cannot be dumped. Russia is ahead in key military technologies. As a result, they will always raise civilian products for themselves. Just on the arrogant and arrogant Americans need to spit completely. They have no brains anyway. Therefore, they are trying to take the mind of others ... They are stupid from birth and have already forgotten how to work productively. They live, world bloodsuckers, only on financial scams. Take away their rocket engines, titanium and uranium-235. And forget about the dollar. Let them die. This aggressive and, in fact, disenfranchised country is absolutely not a pity. In recent years, they have failed after failure. They do not even need to be pushed - they themselves will fall apart ...

          I don't like the USA. But about the stupid. Procter & Gamble, Pfizer, Hewlett-Packard, Apple Ford, Johnson & Johnson, Cisco Systems, Boeing, Caterpillar and so on. It seems that they are not like lazy people and dumb, comprehensive development.
          You can not sell titanium, let them buy in other places. But what to do with your own? Stop production - where will the hard workers go? And to whom do the enterprises belong? The Chinese need to be careful with them. Oil example. Friends - neighbors Arabs gave lower prices and where friendship is. Bought from them. Yes, they have their own. Distribution of world proven reserves of titanium,%. In terms of titanium ore reserves, China occupies the first place. Large alluvial deposits are located in Australia, India, Ceylon, Brazil and the United States (Florida).
          In production, Russia comes first.
          Rocket engines, yes, can be pinched, but not for long. If I’m not mistaken, they are already testing the Yangel Design Bureau of the South Yuzhnoye Ukrainian rocket engine. Refusal from the dollar. Siluanov again buys American government bonds.
          Over the course of my life, I have heard more than once about rotting American capitalism, starting with L.I. Brezhnev. Only now the USSR has collapsed, but the USA is not there yet, one cannot hope for it.
          In this situation, you need to stop drinking Coke and cut down the Internet (Google American company).
          Let them live and suffer with their failures and the president.

        And America, of course, gave us hypersonic missiles? Yes, they, besides hamburgers, themselves can not do anything, they are looking on the side who to entice, but there are less and less people who want to go there from normal countries. So they are lagging behind in armament, they will soon be fighting, as they will start the square. Now the negroes frolic there freely, then all the rest, Mexicans, Indians, and other rabble, and what remains, China will buy, and they will teach the precepts of Mao and Lenin.

          As for the missiles, they were started to be developed back in the USSR. They have a drawback - they fly in a straight line and cannot, like cruise missiles, go around the terrain. In the US, it is stated that Lockheed Martin is launching a test of hypersonic missiles. With regard to China, they are constantly building up ground forces. Who are they going to fight with? Is it dangerous.

        ALL innovative technologies are developing at a faster pace in Russia ...
        And in aviation, Russia is ahead of the United States and Europe, although Russia makes its money, and not how the United States and Europe print its unsecured candy wrappers ...
        And there are enough people with brains in Russia, so she shares them with the USA and Europe, because otherwise they would not have developed independently ...

          Give an example. I would be glad to hear. And the second - why does the Central Bank keep candy wrappers in the USA and Europe at home? And all the fat cats keep their savings in candy wrappers? And in candy wrappers translate hard and unshakable rubles.

    What is good for a German is death for a Russian.
    You need to live your life. We were told by foreigners that planning is bad, ideology is bad. They listened to them - ruined the country. You can not give up their beliefs, from what parents taught. It is imperative to have and fulfill your plans, from doing homework / making repairs / building a summer house, to everything you need. Do not blame your own, even if strangers really do it better. You need to make a new plan and fulfill it again (taking into account your own and other people's experience, how to make it more convenient, beautiful, efficient and productive).

    Everywhere in stores, imported goods,
    The West receives a fabulous fat.
    The quality of the goods is extremely high,
    It is extremely difficult to compete with him.

    I know the ending of the song, and it’s very unfortunate that we try to do much better for export than for ourselves.

    So let's get it so that it were:
    What is good for the Russian is how it should be - and how it will be, do not care ...

          .. Someone really thinks that on the global market the MS-21 is a real alternative to Boeing products?! ..

          Why not? The beginning has been made. After all, Boeing also once started.
          Moreover, Russia is not starting from scratch.

      We don’t need any Boeing, we already have our own domestic alternative plane. By the way, according to its performance characteristics, the MC-21 in its class is practically inferior to Boeing and Airbus, no matter what anyone says. It is a fact!!!

    So sanctions are good! And thanks to the black president, for everything for the sanctions, for Crimea (the great president took and sent gingerbreads to the Ukrainians in time, if not gingerbreads, we would not have Crimea). And agriculture, we are completely .... and again healthy, that sanctions. Well, we all had better buy tomatoes, cucumbers, apples. Well, they helped everyone - Poland, France, Holland and so on. Well, thanks to the Americans !!! And you need to love Great and beloved Russia !!!

    What nonsense -

    Hexcel and Toray delivered six composite wings.

    These companies, like other Amer’s, do not have the technology for manufacturing a one-piece composite wing. Today, only Russia has the technology for manufacturing a composite wing (and even an entire ship - see Project 12700 minesweeper). And these companies are simple suppliers of raw materials, besides having lost their sales market ...
