    Rostec and China's HTC to cooperate on the development of industrial gas turbine units


    As part of the Fourth China-Russia Expo, on June 16, United Engine Corporation (UEC, a company of Rostec) and Harbin Turbine Company (HTC), a Chinese state-owned company, concluded a strategic partnership agreement on the development, manufacturing and delivery of small and medium-sized industrial gas turbine units.


    The agreement was signed by Alexander Karaoglanov, Sales Director and Head of the Sales Department of the Energy and Industrial Programs Division of JSC UEC, and by Yao Hongwei, President of HTC. The agreement was initialed in the presence of representatives of the government of the Heilongjiang Province of China.

    "We believe that cooperation between UEC and a major Chinese manufacturer such as HTC will enable us to achieve impressive results on the Chinese market," commented Alexander Karaoglanov.

    The agreement provides for cooperation between UEC and HTC aimed at launching licensed production of 16 MW gas turbine power units in China on the basis of Russian GTU-16 gas turbines and joint development of 40 MW gas turbine units for mechanical and electric drive applications.

    UEC is currently expanding its cooperation with Chinese partners both in the supply of power generation equipment manufactured by UEC to the Chinese market and in joint development of advanced industrial gas turbine equipment. In addition, the company is working with Chinese manufacturers of compressor equipment, generators and metal structures to enable the use of Chinese products in UEC's projects in Russia and in other countries.

    Heavy helicopter,wide body aircraft now this. All hugely significant in long term. Russia is getting in an undeniable chinese influence. They have not many choices.

    They have choices, but China is a big market, which they obviously can't just slip away. The heavy helicopter development was offered to us as well, just as most important Russian developments are, but for some reasons things are not working out.

    Kaboom! Russian Drone With Thermite Grenade Blows Up a Billion Dollars of Ukrainian Ammo

    A single grenade-carrying drone set off one of the largest explosions in recent memory.


    [​IMG]
    A drone carrying a grenade infiltrated an ammunition dump in Ukraine, setting off an explosion that caused an astounding billion dollars worth of damage. The incident points to the growing use of drones in wartime, particularly off the shelf civilian products harnessed to conduct sabotage and other attacks.

    Ukraine's domestic intelligence service, the SBU, believes that a drone carrying a Russian thermite hand grenade caused a series of titanic explosions at Balakliya, a military base in Eastern Ukraine. Amateur video of the incident posted on YouTube shows a raging fire spewing out of control artillery rockets, and an explosion and shockwave that sent civilians nearby reeling.

    One person was killed in the attack and five were injured.



    The drone is believed to have carried a ZMG-1 thermite grenade. Thermite, a combination of iron oxide (rust) and aluminum powder. The stuff burns extremely hot and easily could have gotten through wooden crates to detonate the munitions inside. The ammo dump is just 60 miles from the Russian/Ukrainian border, where fighting recently took place.

    According to PM contributor David Hambling writing at Scout Warrior, it's not the first time military bases in Ukraine have been hit by drones. A similar attempt to blow up the Balakliya base took place in December 2015, when drones dropped 14 grenades. The fires were extinguished by Ukrainian servicemen, and one grenade, a ZMG-1, was recovered.

    In October 2015, an attack on an ammunition depot at Svatovo destroyed 3,000 tons of explosives and damaged 1,700 nearby homes. Two other attacks on ammo dumps took place in February, and another facility was attacked in March.

    Guerrilla groups, terrorists, and perhaps even governments worldwide have rapidly weaponized consumer drones, effectively turning hobbyist devices into lethal weapons capable of killing. In 2016, two French Special Forces soldiers were injured and two Kurdish fighters were killed by an exploding ISIS drone. ISIS has conducted numerous drone attacks during the Mosul campaign and terrorism experts fear weaponized drones could spread outside conflict zones.
