Russia is preparing to create a new generation aircraft engine PDV-4000


Recently, the company ODK-UMPO completed the organization of four complexes for the production of helicopter engine assemblies, as well as rotors, turbines and a compressor. All centers are equipped with modern equipment, including CNC machines and unique devices for welding and soldering.


High-tech centers have already been launched and they have launched serial production of helicopter components. It is expected that up to 350 motor kits will be produced here annually.

It is worth noting that, first of all, the above-mentioned complexes are focused on the production of parts for the VK-2500 engine. The latter literally saved our country in a situation where Ukraine banned all deliveries of engines for the Mil and Kamov helicopters, which were manufactured at the Motor Sich enterprise. All this then was supposed to inflict a terrible blow on the defense capability and export of Russia, but, fortunately, we began work on creating a modified VK-2500 engine in advance.

The latter in its characteristics managed to surpass the Ukrainian version. At the same time, the new unit consists entirely of domestic components, which finally solved the issue of import substitution.

At the Victory Parade on June 24, two Mi-35M helicopters flew over Moscow, equipped with high-altitude turboprop units VK-2500-II. However, our country did not stop at the release of several modifications.

Now work is underway on the VK-650V engine, which is to replace the French Arrius in Ka-2023T helicopters in 226. In the same year, the release of a new VK-1600V is planned, which will be installed on the Ka-62.

There are more ambitious ideas. For example, the creation of a hydrogen or LNG unit, as well as a new generation universal engine PDV-4000, which can be installed both on helicopters and on airplanes. Its power will be up to 5000 hp. In the process of development, new structural materials, additive Technologyas well as 3D printing.

    Still would. Made - well done, good but there’s still a lot of work ahead. fellow
    As far as I remember, there is no normal engine for the Mi-38, the American is more powerful.
    Congratulations and creative success to the team. drinks

      As far as I remember, our TV7-117V engines were created for him. Why are they not normal?

        Maybe it’s already “normal”, messages periodically appeared that the PW127TS engine has more power. Something like this:

        https://vpk.name/news/320787_amerikanskie_dvigateli_na_mi-38_okazalis_luchshe_rossiiskih.html

        The information is contradictory, in some sources it is indicated that the power of the PW127TS is 2 hp, while the TV500-7V has 117 hp. Perhaps the problem is resolved.
        Can you clarify?

          I did not understand your question. What is your problem? That the TV7-117V has more power than the PW127TS? request

            No, I don’t see a problem. Apparently, the evidence that the TV7-117V engine is worse is incorrect. hi

      Does anyone need a Mi-38? You need to start to begin with this. The military does not need it, and even more so for the citizens.

        It seems that they are selling little by little, but it is problematic what is, that is. It is slightly larger than the Mi-8, but also more expensive. In general, they create competition for each other.

          Mi-38 is not needed by the RF Armed Forces. I honestly can’t understand why the military needs it. Citizens also do not need it. They have a hard worker Mi-26 and the same Mi-8. Here are helicopters like "Ansat" and Ka-226 they definitely need as sanitation.

        The RF Ministry of Defense does not need it so much that they concluded a contract for 16 pieces and an option for 16 in the future ....

          In future. What is the future? Have you personally signed a contract for the supply of 16 Mi-38 helicopters? This is where it can be applied to the RF Armed Forces? I don’t see a single place for its application. It costs 4 times more expensive than the Mi-8, and it takes 50% more cargo. Who needs it at all?

    God forbid that the guys all the plans come true, and "affective managers", such as extras and show producers, did not bother them.

    I wonder who and when began to develop the VK-650? More VK-800 can not bring to mind. And what kind of beast VK-1600? If the numbers indicate power, then it is clearly small for the Ka-62.
