Russian-Chinese helicopter can get engine of Russian production


An advanced heavy transport helicopter, jointly developed by Russia and China, is expected to be equipped with a Russian-built engine most likely designed on the basis of the PD-14, United Engine Corporation’s (UEC) CEO Vladislav Masalov said.

But the modified PD-14 engine is not the only option.

“There is the D-136 engine. It is an option worth considering for the heavy helicopter,” Masalov noted. Then there is the PD-14, which can be used as a basis for developing a family of engines. “They could be viewed as a replacement for the D-136 and could be fitted on the heavy helicopter,” he explained.
