- AG-2 : Activate additional lights

- AG-8 : Disable stabilization and navigation lights.

- VTOL : - to lower/lift the cable.


So, bored with tanks? Fair enough, now I'm bored with them too, now let's move on to the Helicopters of the 1940s!
(combat helicopters too)


  • Year of creation: 1941.

  • Year of serial production: 1944.

  • Empty weight: 9,500 kilograms.

  • Normal takeoff weight: 13,500 kilograms.

  • Maximum takeoff weight: 16,500 kg (1150 hp = 20,500 kg).


Description:

  • The helicopter was accepted to the program of designing new and advanced cargo helicopters suitable for the needs of the heavy industry and also the military, feature of the program was the ability to carry extremely heavy loads that were beyond capabilities of even the majority of standard transport aircraft, not to mention the very first helicopters with payloads of no more than 500kg. In December 1941, the (Neumayerland Helicopter Commission) considered a very promising at the time helicopter design transverse scheme, with a very modest potential for modernization! A feature of this helicopter at the beginning was the placement of a single 2,600 hp piston engine in the fuselage of the helicopter, taking into account all components that transmit torque to the three-blade propeller diameter ~18 meters, about 200 hp was lost on the way, resulting in an approximate power of 2,400 hp. In mid-1942, after the end of the war with the "KNS" and "KK" was built the first prototype helicopter with a given engine, but it did not meet expectations, the theoretical loss of 200 hp was much more, and so that the helicopter could climb to a maximum of 1300 meters, but it got up!
    During further flight tests, the development of new and new types of engines, in March 1943, came a relatively compact piston engine, 1800 hp, which could be placed in the so-called "power shoulder" directly under the 18-meter propeller, new tests helicopter began at the end of 1943, which showed very good flight characteristics of the helicopter.
    Since the helicopter had to meet military requirements as well, the design had to take into account the requirements for the fuel tanks located in the fuselage and on the shoulder. The tanks were divided into three parts, with enough fuel to fly a range of 1,000 kilometers with a payload of 1,000 kg, a range of 500 kilometers with a payload of 4 tonnes, and 230 kilometers with a payload of 8 tonnes. These flight characteristics have been commented on as Incredible, especially since it is probably the first heavy-lift helicopter in history.
    In early to mid-1944, the claim was made to begin mass production of these helicopters, eight per month, which was enough for Neumayerland's current needs.
