For whom Russia has created a new engine RD-93MA

The new turbojet engine, called RD-93MA, developed by the Russian United Engine Corporation (UDC) -Klimov, was tested in a heat chamber to confirm speed characteristics in flight simulation conditions. This is reported by the resource

The RD-93MA dual-circuit engine was specifically designed to power single-engine light fighters. This is a modernization of the RD-93 engine, currently installed on the Pakistani JF-17, as well as on the Chinese Chengdu FC-1.

During the tests, the engine was subjected to tests as close as possible to real conditions. They will also check the functioning of the automatic control system of the BARK-93MA motor.

It is expected that the thrust of the RD-93MA will be 9300 kgf compared with 8300 kgf for the RD-93 - this will be a significant increase in power that will help the JF-17 and FC-1 fighters carry more weapons and fly at higher speed.

It was previously reported that the RD-93MA will be directly sold to Pakistan. However, sources told that work on upgrading the motor is carried out under a contract with a Chinese company, for which more than 100 such power units will be manufactured.

It is expected that the engine will enter combat test mode towards the end of 2020. This means that the JF-17 Block III fighter will be subjected to flight tests with the RD-93MA no earlier than 2021-22.

    And I support. Better to sell finished products than technology.

    The next modernization of the RD-93, from the RD-33 family, developed in 1965, produced since 1977.
    Soviet backlog.

      And what of it? The groundwork must also be able to bring to new heights. Or should we give all the Soviet achievements to the Chinese, sit on our ass ourselves and begin to smear our snot on my cheeks, how bad is everything in Russia?

        Never mind.
        As soon as something is tinted in the Russian Federation, it is the Russian Federation that invented and implemented. As soon as Ukraine launches Neptune, immediately, this is a Soviet development.

    Here is a sensible decision to sell aircraft engines, as they sold in the United States for space rocket flights. Moreover, China wants to acquire them.

    For Rogozin ... he is now training on a trampoline ... And Musk is preparing for the moon and Mars.

    Once in the Russian Federation .... this is a Soviet development.

    Russia is the USSR with capitalism and without parasites. Not a single development in the USSR would have been born without RUSSIANS.
    Therefore, there are no before and after. This is all the story of the RUSSIAN PEOPLE.
