Russian fighter jets and military transport planes can get the electrical chassis instead of the traditional hydraulic in half a year or two years, the deputy director of the new Center for Design Technology Holding “Tekhnodinamika” Dmitry Kuderk said.
Electric traction allows pilots to deploy their own aircraft and at speeds up to 40 km/h to move to the runway without the tractor and starting the engine.
Flight tests of the aircraft version of cruise missile “Brahmos” will start in March 2016, “Now we are negotiating with a number of aviation companies on the formation of the requirements for the system for combat aircraft. And as soon as the requirements will be formed to make recommendations. I think that the next few months – until the end of 2015 – these requirements are formulated “, – he told the agency at the MAKS-2015.
