MOSCOW - Russian technicians are looking to configure the Zagon-2 anti-submarine weapon for use by Mi-14s, according to RIA Novosti, citing Techmash Concern's CEO.

Techmash Concern CEO Sergei Rusakov noted that the weapon was designed initially for use by Ka-28 helicopters, but the company is currently looking for ways to implement it onto other systems, such as the Mi-14. Currently, the bomb can also be launched from Il-38s and Tu-42Ms.

Zagon-2 is designed to target submarines both on the sea surface and submerged. It can reportedly detect submarines that at depths off 600 meters.

The bomb weighs 120 kilograms, according to RIA Novosti.

MOSCOW - Rostec reported on June 23 that the Russian military industry has overcome its import dependence on foreign helicopter engines. The statement came alongside the news that the United Engine Corporation (UEC) has begun serial production of new engines.

UEC has begun production of TV7-117V engines, for use in Mi-38s, which were certified for production in 2015. Eventually, Russia intends to have the Mi-38 replace its Mi-8/17s.

Variants of the engine can be used in Il-114s and Il-112Vs.

UEC described the engines as very reliable and efficient. Through 2020, UEC expects to produce at least 200 different modifications for helicopters and planes.

The announcement of the engine's serial production is a milestone for Russia's industry, which has been reliant on engines produced in Ukraine. The Mi-38, in particular, was developed with a Pratt & Whitney engine.

ANGOLA ORDERS AW109S

LUANDA - Citing Air Forces Daily, defenceWeb has reported that Angola has been confirmed as the recipient of six AW109 helicopters currently being built in Italy. One of the six helicopters was recently spotted conducting flight testing, sporting Angolan colors with an Angolan flag on the tail.

Angola ordered the AW109s from Finmeccanica-Leonardo in 2015, at a price of about 90 million euros. Other agreements with Italy included two patrol boats as well as radar systems.

It is unclear when deliveries of the helicopters will begin.

Though Angola has been working to modernize its forces in recent years, the collapse in oil prices has affected its procurement plans, limiting Angola's financing options. Oil makes up about half of the country's GDP.
