  • WORLDS MOST POWERFUL HELICOPTER LIFTS BIG AIRCRAFT Russian Mi 26 Helicopter

    A helicopter is a type of rotorcraft in which lift and thrust are supplied by rotors. This allows the helicopter to take off and land vertically, to hover, and to fly forward, backward, and laterally. These attributes allow helicopters to be used in congested or isolated areas where fixed-wing aircraft would usually not be able to take off or land. The capability to hover efficiently for extended periods of time allows a helicopter to accomplish tasks that fixed-wing aircraft and other forms of vertical takeoff and landing aircraft cannot perform. The word helicopter is adapted from the French language hélicoptère, coined by Gustave de Ponton d'Amecourt in 1861, which originates from the Greek helix/helik- (ἕλιξ) = "twisted, curved"[1] and pteron (πτερόν) = "wing".[2][3][4] English-langua...

ONE OF A KIND Airbus Beluga Air Transport Aircraft

One of the great wonders of aviation the airbus beluga air transport aircraft would be great from the US military and nato members. The Airbus A300-600ST (Super Transporter) or Beluga, is a version of the standard A300-600 wide-body airliner modified to carry aircraft parts and oversized cargo. It was officially called the Super Transporter at first, but the name Beluga became popular and has now been officially adopted. Purpose[edit] Several major aircraft manufacturers are multinational, and it is not unusual for them to have plants in widely separated locations. Airbus is unique in that it is a consortium formed by the major British, French, German, and Spanish aerospace companies. The geographic location of Airbus manufacturing is not only influenced by cost and convenience; it is also a matter of aviation history and national interest. Each of the Airbus partners makes an entire aircraft section, which must be transported to a central location for final assembly. The details vary from one model to another, but the general arrangement is for the wings and landing gear to be made in the UK, the tail and doors in Spain, the fuselage in Germany, and the nose and centre-section in France, with final assembly in either Toulouse, France; Hamburg, Germany; or Seville, Spain. Role Outsize cargo freight aircraft Manufacturer Airbus First flight 13 September 1994 Introduction September 1995 Status In service Primary user Airbus Transport International Produced 1992–c.1999 Number built 5 Unit cost $285 million[1] Developed from Airbus A300-600 Development Background[edit] When Airbus started in 1970, the first few components were delivered by road, but growing production soon necessitated a switch to air transport. From 1972 onwards, a fleet of four highly modified "Super Guppies" took over. These were former Boeing Stratocruisers from the 1940s, converted with custom fuselages and turbine engines to carry large volume loads for the 1960s NASA space program, leading to the jest that "every Airbus is delivered on the wings of a Boeing". As time went by, the Super Guppies grew increasingly unsatisfactory for Airbus's ferrying needs: their age meant that operating expenses were high and ever-increasing, and growing Airbus production required greater capacity. Design phase[edit] In 1991 Aérospatiale and DASA, two of the major Airbus partners, formed a company to develop a replacement. The starting point was the design for the wide-body twin-engined Airbus A300: the wings, engines, landing gear, and the lower part of the fuselage are the same as the A300 while the upper part of the fuselage is an enormous horseshoe-shaped structure 7.7 m (25 ft) in diameter. To provide access to the cargo area from the front without having to disconnect all electrical, hydraulic and flight control connections (not to mention the lengthy recalibrations before each flight the reconnection entailed), the standard A300 cockpit was moved down below the cargo floor level, and the tail structure was enlarged and strengthened to maintain directional stability. Production and entry into service Construction began in September 1992, and the first flight took place in September 1994. After 335 hours of test flying, restricted certification was awarded in October 1995,[2] and the A300-600ST "Beluga" entered service. Four more Belugas were constructed, at a rate of roughly one per year, and all five remain in regular service. Their primary task is to carry Airbus components ready for final assembly across Europe between Toulouse, Hamburg and 9 other sites, and they do so 60 times per week.[3] They are also available for charter work, and have been used to carry a variety of special loads, including space station components, large, very delicate artwork, industrial machinery, and entire helicopters. One Beluga was chartered to carry two complete NHI NH90s and a Eurocopter Tiger from Europe to Australia and back. The A300-600ST's freight compartment is 7.4 m (24 ft) in diameter and 37.7 m (124 ft) long; maximum payload is 47 tonnes. At 155 tonnes its maximum take-off weight is comparable to a normal A300, showing that the Beluga was intended for large but relatively light cargo. The main deck cargo volume of the Beluga is greater than that of the C-5 Galaxy or the Antonov An-124 but still smaller than Antonov An-225. However, it is restricted by cargo weight capacity of 47 tonnes, compared to 122.5 tonnes for the C-5 Galaxy and 150 tonnes for the An-124.[4] Despite this width, the Beluga cannot carry most fuselage parts of the A380, which are normally transported by ship and road. The Beluga has been used to transport a few A380 components.[5] In 1999, a Beluga carried a large painting Liberty Leading the People by Eugène Delacroix[6] which had hung in the Louvre in Paris since 1874. It was flown from Paris to Tokyo via Bahrain and Calcutta in about 20 hours.[7]

Top 10 Largest Military Cargo Aircraft 1 Antonov An-124 (Russia) - The Antonov An-124 Ruslan (NATO designation Condor) is named after a legendary giant. It is broadly similar to the slightly smaller Lockheed C-5 Galaxy. Currently the An-124 is the world's largest production military aircraft. Only the one-off An-225 is bigger. 2. Lockheed C-5 Galaxy (USA) - The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy is the workhorse of US strategic airlift capability. Also it is the largest aircraft, routinely operated by the US forces. First operational C-5 aircraft was delivered in 1969. A total of 131 aircraft were delivered until 1989. About 125 of them are still operational. 3 Antonov An-22 (Russia) - The An-22 is the world's largest turboprop aircraft. At the time of its introduction in 1965 it was the world's largest aircraft. The An-22 was extensively used in major military airlifts of the Soviet Union. However it was never produced in large numbers. This aircraft has a payload capacity of 80 t. It can carry four BMD-2 airborne combat vehicles. 4. Boeing C-17 Globemaster III (USA) - The Boeing C-17 Globemaster III is a workhorse of the USAF, flying regular strategic supply missions around the world. ThDevelopment of this heavy transport aircraft commenced in the 1980s. It made its first flight in 1991 and reached initial operational capability in 1995. It replaced theLockheed C-141 StarLifter. A total of 250 of these aircraft were built. It is used by US Air Force and some other countries around the world. 5. Ilyushin Il-76 (Russia) - The Il-76 (NATO designation Candid) was the first Soviet four-jet heavy transport. Its production commenced in 1974. Over 800 of these military cargo aircraft were built. Together with the An-12 it formed the backbone of the Soviet Airlift Command throughout the Cold War. It was used to fly strategic military cargos into front-line air bases in the most extreme operational conditions. This aircraft is still in service with a number of countries. 6. Airbus A400M (International) - The Airbus A400M Atlas is an international project. This medium-range aircraft made its first flight in 2009. This airplane was ordered by 10 countries. Mayor operators will be Germany (60), France (50), Spain (27), United Kingdom (25) and Turkey (10). First production aircraft were delivered in 2013. The A400M will replace a variety of aircraft, including Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules andTRANSALL C-160. 7. Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules (USA) - The C-130J Super Hercules was developed by Lockheed Martin. It is the latest production version of the C-130 Hercules. The Super Hercules made its first flight in 1996. It replaced in production the previous C-130H. Deliveries of this tactical airlifter commenced in 1998. By 2014 over 280 Super Hercules aircraft of various models have been delivered to at least 14 countries. Largest operators are US Air Force, US Marine Corps, Australia, Canada, India, Italy and the United Kingdom. In the Royal Air Force service this aircraft is known as Hercules C5. 8. Antonov An-12 (Russia) - The Antonov An-12 (NATO reporting name Cub) was produced between 1957 and 1973. In many aspects it is similar to the Lockheed C-130 Hercules. Over 1 200 of these aircraft were built. This aircraft was produced in many variants. It was the most important transport in Soviet military service. Together with the Il-76 it formed the backbone of the Soviet Airlift Command throughout the Cold War. Also it has been widely exported. It is still widely used around the world. Its unlicensed copy, the Shaanxi Y-8 continues to be produced and upgraded in China. 9. Kawasaki C-1 (Japan) - The Kawasaki C-1 is a short-range military transport, used by Japan Air Self-Defense Forces. Its production commenced in 1971. A total of 31 aircraft were built. This aircraft has a maximum payload capacity of 11.9 t. Maximum range of this aircraft was deliberately cut-down in order to keep aircraft operational range inside Japan. At that time it was done in order to comply with Japanese policies not to have offensive capabilities. 10. Alenia C-27J Spartan (Italy) - The Alenia C-27J Spartan was developed from the previous G.222. It uses engines and electronic systems, sourced from the Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules. Dimensions and performance of the C-27J is about half of the Hercules. The C-27J made its first flight in 1999. It is in service with Italy, US Army National Guard and some other countries.

Americans do not understand RACKETEERING runs every walk of life to include the U.S. military--what maximizes greed & ego that can be milked perpetually with a built-in weakness to have ready-made excuses to do little or nothing is what's bought over what's BEST and MOST EFFICIENT. There is no "constituency" for military excellence in the military, industrial, congressional think-tank complex President Eisenhower warned us about in 1960. At this same time, the U.S. Navy large supercarrier racketeers were killing off their more efficient competition: the patrol plane Navy whose P-6M Seamaster jet seaplane bomber was so efficient it threatened their multi-billion dollar floating cash cows as well as even the USAF's mighty "bomb 'em into the stone age" B-52 strategic bomber racket. http://www.combatreform.org/p6mseamaster.htm A squadron of 12 x P-6M Seamasters at 600 mph refueled and rearmed by a handful of tender ships or stealthy submarines can deliver far more bombload than any supercarrier with 70 short-range, "lawn dart" tail-hook fighter-bombers and do it without offering a huge floating target of 5, 000 American Sailors and marines packed like sardines asking for an Exocet high-tech replay of the HMS Repulse and Prince of Wales in WW2. http://www.combatreform.org/USNAVYINDANGER/index.htm The first threat to the Midway Myth re-enactment club that had to be rubbed out was the small seaplane fighter launched from cruisers and battleships that created U.S. naval aviation in the first place in 1911--no gratitude here, the SC-1/2 SeaHawk seaplane fighter was able to defend ships from air attacks even if the carrier decks were in flames, and the SeaDart was supersonic and faster than most carrier jets--racketeer Admiral Pirie cried: CANCEL THEM NOW! http://www.combatreform.org/seaplanefighters.htm The P-6M Seamaster and other large seaplanes like the amazing 400 mph R3Y Tradewind--even as transports so marines don't get creamed on beaches and air tankers to refuel the supercarrier lawn darts so their "Top Guns" could get the glory were still intolerable to the Navy's carrier "mafia" aka racketeers so they were cancelled, too. http://www.combatreform.org/seaplanetransports.htm Someday, the American people will wake up and realize their military is no meritocracy and is a racket like any other human area and demand they get the BEST military lead by the BEST men who study war and how to prevent and win them quickly at least cost.

The An-178 is a short-range tactical transport aircraft. It was developed by Ukrainian Antonov design bureau. Its development commenced in 2004. It is based on civilian An-158 regional jet aircraft. Some modifications were made to adapt this aircraft for military service. It has a wider fuselage and is fitted with a rear loading ramp. This aircraft is intended to replaced the ageing An-12, An-26 and An-32 tactical aircraft most of which are worn-out already. Originally this aircraft was mainly aimed at the Russian market. It was also planned that most of An-178 aircraft will be assembled in Russia. However since 2014, due to the military conflict in Ukraine, all deliveries of military equipment, components and technical cooperation with Russia were stopped. The An-178 made its first flight and was first publicly revealed in 2015. In 2015 Saudi Arabia has announced that they are going to purchase 30 of these Ukrainian military aircraft. This new Ukrainian transport aircraft has a maximum payload capacity of 18 000 kg. In terms of payload capacity it is similar to a C-130 Hercules. The An-178 has a pressurized cargo hold. In troops transport role it can carry 90 passengers, or 70 paratroopers, or 68 litters with medical attendants. Alternatively it can carry three 4x4 light utility vehicles, such as HMMWV, or two standard shipping containers. This military transport aircraft is intended to operate over short distances. With maximum payload of 18 t it has a range of 1 000 km. The An-178 is powered by two Ivchenko-Progress D436-148FM turbofan engines. Each engine generates a take-off thrust of 7,880kgf. The D-436-148FM has a dry weight of 1,450kg and an inlet diameter of 1,390mm. These engines are produced in Ukraine. Thus cargo aircraft needs a 2 500 m long runway in order to take off. It can take off and land from ground airstrips.

Let's take a look at 5 of the world's largest cargo planes ever flown. Considered to be among mankind's greatest innovations, let's take a look at 5 of the world's largest cargo planes ever flown. Number Five: The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy has been in operation since 1970 and is one of the largest military aircraft ever built. Used by the United States Air Force and according to the manufacturer, "the C-5 Galaxy can carry more cargo farther distances than any other aircraft." The C-5 has set 43 world records in airlift and can carry 6 Apache helicopters and almost 75 soldiers straight to where they are needed. Number Four: The Aero Spacelines Super Guppy is a unique looking aircraft that is used to carry oversized cargo. It's distinctive "fold away" nose opens 110 degrees in order to accommodate the loading of extra-large freight such as sections of rockets and parts needed for the International Space Station. Number Three: The Airbus Beluga, developed in the 1990's, has one of the largest cargo areas of any aircraft in service. Made to carry other aircraft parts, like the body of a jumbo jet or the wings of a jetliner to other production sites throughout the world, Beluga has a cargo capacity of 47 tons. Number Two: The Boeing 747 DreamLifter is an adapted passenger plane that, according to Boeing, "can haul more cargo by volume than any airplane in the world." Mainly used for transporting parts of Boeing's 787 Dreamliner aircraft, its wing span is just over 211 feet and it can hold 65,000 cubic feet of cargo. Number One: The Antonov AN-225, also called the "Mriya", is the world's largest cargo plane. Built in the 1980's to originally transport the Soviet space shuttle, this plane has a cargo capacity of 250 tons, six giant jet engines and a wingspan that is almost the length of a football field. If you were to stand it upright, it would be almost as tall as a 27-story building.

A helicopter is a type of rotorcraft in which lift and thrust are supplied by rotors. This allows the helicopter to take off and land vertically, to hover, and to fly forward, backward, and laterally. These attributes allow helicopters to be used in congested or isolated areas where fixed-wing aircraft would usually not be able to take off or land. The capability to hover efficiently for extended periods of time allows a helicopter to accomplish tasks that fixed-wing aircraft and other forms of vertical takeoff and landing aircraft cannot perform. The word helicopter is adapted from the French language hélicoptère, coined by Gustave de Ponton d'Amecourt in 1861, which originates from the Greek helix/helik- (ἕλιξ) = "twisted, curved"[1] and pteron (πτερόν) = "wing".[2][3][4] English-language nicknames used for helicopters include chopper, helo and whirlybird. Helicopters were developed and built during the first half-century of flight, with the Focke-Wulf Fw 61 being the first operational helicopter in 1936. Some helicopters reached limited production, but it was not until 1942 that a helicopter designed by Igor Sikorsky reached full-scale production,[5] with 131 aircraft built.[6] Though most earlier designs used more than one main rotor, it is the single main rotor with anti-torque tail rotor configuration that has become the most common helicopter configuration. Tandem rotor helicopters are also in widespread use due to their greater payload capacity. Quadrotor helicopters and other types of multicopter have been developed for specialized applications. The Mil Mi-26 (Russian: Миль Ми-26, NATO reporting name: Halo), given the product code izdeliye 90, is a Soviet/Russian heavy transport helicopter. In service with civilian and military operators, it is the largest and most powerful helicopter ever to have gone into production. Following the incomplete development of the heavier Mil Mi-12 (prototypes known as Mil V-12) in the early 1970s, work began on a new heavy-lift helicopter, designated Izdeliye 90 ("Project 90")[1] and later allocated designation Mi-26. The new design was required to have an empty weight less than half its maximum takeoff weight.[2] The helicopter was designed by Marat Tishchenko, protégé of Mikhail Mil, founder of the OKB-329 design bureau.[3] The Mi-26 was designed as a heavy-lift helicopter for military and civil use, and was to replace earlier Mi-6 and Mi-12 heavy lift helicopters, with twice the cabin space and payload of the Mi-6, then the world's largest and fastest production helicopter. The primary purpose was to move military equipment like 13 metric ton (29,000 lb) amphibious armored personnel carriers, and mobile ballistic missiles, to remote locations after delivery by military transport planes such as the Antonov An-22 or Ilyushin Il-76. The first Mi-26 flew on 14 December 1977[4] and the first production aircraft was rolled out on 4 October 1980.[1] Development was completed in 1983, and the Mi-26 was in Soviet military and commercial service by 1985.[2] Russia Listeni/ˈrʌʃə/ or /ˈrʊʃə/ (Russian: Россия, tr. Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə] ( listen)), also officially known as the Russian Federation[7] (Russian: Российская Федерация, tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə fʲɪdʲɪˈrat͡sɨjə] ( listen)), is a country in northern Eurasia.[8] It is a federal semi-presidential republic, comprising 83 federal subjects. From northwest to southeast, Russia shares land borders with Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland (both with Kaliningrad Oblast), Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia, and North Korea. It shares maritime borders with Japan by the Sea of Okhotsk and the U.S. state of Alaska across the Bering Strait. At 17,075,400 square kilometres (6,592,800 sq mi), Russia is the largest country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's inhabited land area. Russia is also the world's ninth most populous nation with 143 million people as of 2012.[9] Extending across the entirety of northern Asia and much of Eastern Europe, Russia spans nine time zones and incorporates a wide range of environments and landforms. An aircraft is a machine that is able to fly by gaining support from the air, or, in general, the atmosphere of a planet. It counters the force of gravity by using either static lift or by using the dynamic lift of an airfoil,[1] or in a few cases the downward thrust from jet engines. The human activity that surrounds aircraft is called aviation. Crewed aircraft are flown by an onboard pilot, but unmanned aerial vehicles may be remotely controlled or self-controlled by onboard computers. Aircraft may be classified by different criteria, such as lift type, propulsion, usage and others.

Great news for the Russian military plans are being made to build the worlds largest stealth military transport aircraft Pak TA. This new Stealth aircraft will provide a significant boost to Russian military power in to the future. Future Russian army could deploy anywhere in the world – in 7 hours. In the future, a fleet of heavy transport aircraft will reportedly be capable of moving a strategic unit of 400 Armata tanks, with ammunition, to anywhere in the world. And probably at hypersonic speed, enabling Russia to mount a global military response. According to a new design specification from the Military-Industrial Commission in Moscow, a transport aircraft, dubbed PAK TA, will fly at supersonic speeds (up to 2,000 km/h) and will boast an impressively high payload of up to 200 tons. It will also have a range of at least 7,000 kilometers. The PAK TA program envisages 80 new cargo aircraft to be built by 2024. This means in a decade Russia’s Central Command will be able to place a battle-ready armored army anywhere, Expert Online reports, citing a source in the military who attended the closed meeting. One of the main tasks of the new PAK TA is to transport Armata heavy missile tanks and other military hardware on the same platform, such as enhanced self-propelled artillery weapons systems, anti-aircraft missile complexes, tactical missile carriers, multiple launch missile systems, and anti-tank missile fighting vehicles. The PAK TA freighters will be multilevel, with automated cargo loading and have the capability to airdrop hardware and personnel on any terrain. A fleet of several dozen PAK TA air freighters will be able to lift 400 Armata heavy tanks, or 900 light armored vehicles, such as Sprut-SD airborne amphibious self-propelled tank destroyers. “With the development of a network of military bases in the Middle East, Latin America and Southeast Asia, which is expected to be completed during the same time period (by 2024), it’s obvious that Russia is preparing for a full-scale military confrontation of transcontinental scale,” Expert Online says. A source who attended the closed meeting of the Military-Industrial Commission told the media outlet on condition of anonymity that he was “shocked” by the demands of the military. According to the source, the PAK TA project has been ongoing for several years now and will eventually supplant the currently operating air freighters. But such a global mission statement for national military transport aviation has never been voiced before. “It means for the first time we have the objective of creating an operational capability to airlift a full-fledged army to any desired place on the planet,” the source said. This means delivering a task force the size of the former NATO and the US troops in Iraq, in a matter of hours to any continent. “In the context of the current military doctrine that defies comprehension,” the source said. The initial PAK TA specification entailed building subsonic air freighters with a conventional 900 km/h cruising speed and a moderate 4,500-kilometer range. The program involves the creation of wide-body freighters, with payloads varying from 80 to 200 tons, to replace all existing Ilyushin and Antonov cargo aircraft. The only operating aircraft with a comparable payload is the Antonov An-225 Mriya (up to 250 tons), but this is a one-off aircraft created specially for the Soviet Buran space shuttle program. Last year, it was reported that future military air freighters will be developed by the Ilyushin Aviation Complex, with some experts saying the company may base designs on the Il-106 cargo plane (80 tons) project that won a government tender in the late 1980s, but was abandoned after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
