F-35’s kill ratio with Aggressors stands at 15:1 during Red Flag 17-1 (most probably thanks to the supporting F-22…)

It looks like the controversial F-35 is holding its own at Red Flag exercise underway at Nellis AFB. As of Feb. 3 the F-35A had achieved a quite impressive score during Red Flag 17-1, the U.S. Air Force's premier air combat exercise underway at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada, that pits "Blue Air" (friendly forces) […]

[Rusia] TsAGI specialists develop a convertible airplane concept for regional aviation




Specialists of the Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute named after professor N.E. Zhukovsky (TsAGI, part of the National Research Center “Institute named after N.E. Zhukovsky”) have designed a light convertible aircraft concept. The aircraft is supposed to be fitted with two turboprop engines. Its distinguishing feature is an option of using it both for passenger and cargo transportation without any changes required in the standard design. The aircraft is capable of carrying 50 passengers a distance of 1,500 km or 6 tons of cargo a distance of 1,000 km.

To implement the concept, the Institute scientists have researched a light convertible aircraft mockup in TsAGI’s low-speed wind tunnel. The goal of the tests was to estimate the take-off and landing characteristics, as well as cruise performance of the aircraft. The research has proved considerable information on the advanced aircraft’s aerodynamic characteristics in a wide range of angles of attack and gliding angles.

“The concept offered by TsAGI scientists will provide Russian aviation with a new turboprop aircraft for cargo-and-passenger transportation in local and regional routes as soon as possible, thus increasing the accessibility of the country’s regions by air,” Vladimir Chernousov, the Chief Designer of the light convertible aircraft project and the Lead Engineer of the Aircraft Aerodynamics and Flight Dynamics Complex explained. “Our experience in designing an aircraft of this class will allow minimizing technical and financial risks.”

[Rusia] TsAGI specialists research the advanced twin-fuselage aircraft mockup



press release

A new series of tests of the advanced medium transport twin-fuselage aircraft mockup were completed in the low-speed wind tunnel of the Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute named after professor N.E. Zhukovsky (TsAGI, part of the National Research Center “Institute named after N.E. Zhukovsky”). The goal of the experiments was to estimate the aerodynamic characteristics and to visualize a physical image of aircraft flow.

Research was done on the longitudinal and side aerodynamic characteristics of the mockup in a cruise configuration, as well as simulating near the earth’s surface, at an air speed up to 50 m/s. Using a wool-tuft technique, the Institute’s scientists visualized the flow patterns. This allowed identifying specific features of the mockup flow and comparing them to the aerodynamic characteristics.

The experiments have shown that the mockup of the transport twin-fuselage aircraft under research has the characteristics comparable to the standard characteristics of a high-winged T-tail single-fuselage aircraft. The results obtained prove remarkable high aerodynamic cleanness of the twin-fuselage configuration.

The project has been developed by TsAGI specialists within the framework of the state program “Aircraft industry development in 2013–2025.” The aircraft is intended for transportation of a wide range of loads with the total weight up to 40 tons. According to the preliminary analysis, with the commercial load being the same, the dead load and longitudinal dimensions of the twin-fuselage aircraft are smaller than those of the single-fuselage one. Additionally, the twin-fuselage aircraft ensures easier loading and unloading within a shorter time.
