MI- 8T: RUSSIAN
The Mi-8 is the most famous of
Russian helicopters, and around 12,000 Mi-8's were built. It is one of
the most successful helicopters of the Soviet air industry.24 June 2005
1ill marked the forty four years since the first prototype V-8
flew and exported to over 60 countries. It has outlived its
maker Mikhail Leontievich Mil (1909-1970). The Mi-8 is a turbine-engined derived
from the Mi-4 'Hound' for civil & military applications and first
flew in 1961 in its 'Hip A' prototype form with a four-blade main rotor
powered by a 2,012 kW ( 2,700shp) Soloviev turboshaft. It was replaced
by the 'Hip-B' prototype with a five blade main rotor and two Isotov
TV2-117 turboshafts. The first production model was the 'Hip-C' that
introduced Doppler navigation and provision for heavy armament used in
the defence roles.
After the first prototype, the second had two TV2-117
turboshafts (1962) and a new five blade main rotor (installed in 1963)
and finally came the start of the series production in 1965 first only
at Kazan and five years later in Ulan-Ude. The Mi-8 is an excellent assault and utility
transport helicopter and, is still built in its upgraded Mi-17 form with
an uprated powerplant of two 1,454 kW ( 1950 shp ) TV3-117MT turboshafts.
Russia's armed forces stopped ordering the Mi-8 in 1990 and the
production became dependent on foreign customers. Modification
from Kazan saw the Mi-17MD feature: meteo-radar, an integrated system of
radio-communication and navigation, GPS, Nightvision, HDD etc. The Ulan-Ude
factory yearly output is still far from that of the 1980's when 30
helicopters were produced monthly.
two 1,270 kW (1,703 shp) Isotov TV2-117A turboshafts Dimensions:length
25.24 m ( 82ft 9.5in); height 5.65m ( 18ft 6.5 in ); main rotor diameter
29.29m ( 69 ft 10.5 in ) Weights:take-off ('clean')
11,100 kg (24,470 lb ); MTOW 12,000 kg ( 26,455 lb ) Performance: max level speed at 1,000 m (3,280 ft ) 260 km/h ( 161 mph ); service
ceiling 4,500 m ( 14, 760 ft )
At the present time, as a result of constant perfection of
a design, the Mi-8 Helicopter possesses good characteristics, fine
operational qualities, high reliability proven with long years of work
under various climatic conditions.
On the basis of helicopter Mi-8 (МГА)
models "Tourist", the "Interior", a convertible
variant have been created. The helicopter equipped in a variant
"Tourist", allows to deliver in any place group of people in
comfortable conditions. It is provided due to use of soft armchairs and
systems of clearing of vibration. The variant "Interior"
enables to carry out business meetings and negotiations during flight.
The most numerous of the Mi-8 series is
the Mi-8T ,transport-assault version powered with two TV2-117
turboshafts which can transport 24 fully equipped soldiers or equivalent
The convertible variant of the helicopter
allows us to convert the interior from transporter into a passenger
vehicle. Thus it is
possible to transport about 26 person on folding armchairs. The cargo
variant with the sizes of a cabin 5,34 х 2,34 х 1,8 m allows
to place in it various cargoes in weights up to 3000 kg or can be
equipped additionally for transportation with stretchers & up to 12
seriously ill patients or wounded people.
MI-8T TRANSPORT HELICOPTER
The Mi-8T military-transport helicopter
is configured with a conventional pod and boom, with a tail rotor and
non-retractable tricycle nosewheel landing gear. The five-bladed rotor
is made from aluminium alloy. The cockpit accommodates three crew:
commander, navigator and flight mechanic. The cockpit and the main cabin
are heated and air conditioning is optional. An oxygen system is
provided for the crew and for casualties in the ambulance and rescue
variants of the helicopter.
The survivability features of the Mi-8
include crew cabin armour plating, explosive-resistant foam filling in
the fuel tanks, a fire-fighting system and duplicated and standby
hydraulic and power systems and main control circuits. De-icing systems
The helicopter's landing-transport
equipment can be used to load light towed combat material and armament
via winches and to rescue people from the ground or from the sea by an
electrically operated hoist (200kg capacity). The cabin has cargo
tie-down points on the floor. Ramps are provided for loading vehicles.
The cabin can accommodate twelve litters (stretchers). The external
cargo sling is rated to carry 3,000kg.
The Mi-8T helicopter is powered by two
Klimov TV2-117 turboshafts engines. Deflectors are installed on the
engine air intakes to prevent ingestion of dust when taking off from
unprepared pads. The helicopters also have an auxiliary power unit (APU)
for self-contained operations.
The helicopter carries 1,870 litres of
fuel in two flexible internal tanks and two external tanks. The total
fuel capacity can be increased to 3,700 litres by installing up to two
ferry tanks in the cabin.The new TV3-117(400shp is a more powerful motor
than the TV2-117) engine & was developed in the 60's and 70's for
ombat helicopters like the naval Mi-14 'Haze' and army Mi-24 'Hind', and
was also installed in Mi-8 together with Mi-14s transmission and rotors
thus creating an upgraded version of Mi-8 which was eventually named
Mi-8MT-Modifyed Transport (for export Mi-17) in 1981.
soon replaced the 'first generation' of Mi-8 on production lines in
Kazan and Ulan-Ude. The more powerful engines allowed an increase in
maximum takeoff weight from 12.000kg to 13.000kg,and the hovering
ceiling was increased from 850m to 1.760metres.The helicopter's
structure had better aluminium alloy. The Mi-8MT(Mi-17) is easily
distinguishable from the Mi-8T by the shorter engine nacrlles and by the
rotor which is fitted on the left side of the tailfin. In
1988. the first helicopters had the new TV3-117VM engine from Kazan
(& in 1990. in Ulan-Ude). This engine enabled more power and higher
altitudes and was first installed in Mi-24s.
MI-8MPS SEARCH AND RESCUE HELICOPTER
Mi-8MPS search and rescue helicopters
were developed from the military transport helicopter. In rescue
missions, the helicopter crew drop radio-beacons to mark the distress
area and deliver rescue teams to aid and recover the casualties. The
helicopter can lift ten people at a time on a sling via a PSN-10 life
raft and is provided with an emergency landing device that ensures
buoyancy for up to 30 minutes.
The fuselage of the Mi-8MPS incorporates
specific modifications for search and rescue missions, including a
larger entrance door, two starboard hatches, a raft container and
external additional fuel tanks. Other equipment includes PNKV-8PS
pilot/navigation system, YuR-40.1 radar system, TAPAS thermal search and
rescue equipment, an airborne jib with LPG-300 winch and scoop
