Страна: Бразилия
Год: 2015


21 октября 2014г. бразильская компания Embraer провела официальную церемонию выкатки первого прототипа реактивного среднего военно-транспортного самолета KC-390.
The prototype KC-390 multi-role tanker transport, PT-ZNF, returns to Gaviao Peixoto after it maiden flight.
The first KC-390 prototype PT-ZNF made its maiden flight on February 3, 2015 and participated at the 2016 Farnborough International Air Show. The aircraft undertook a sales tour of Europe and parts of North Africa after Farnborough, returning to Brazil in late July 2016.
KC-390 PT-ZNJ has already conducted initial paratrooper dropping tests including free fall and static line jumps from both the side doors and the cargo ramp. The test period also involved container delivery system and airdrop trials.
The second KC-390 prototype PT-ZNJ joined was recently used for paratrooper and cargo dropping trials in conjunction with the Forca Aerea Brasileira and the Exercito Brasileiro.
The KC-390 was designed from the outset to be an air refuelling aircraft for both fixed and rotary wing receivers. Fuel is transferred via removable Cobham underwing pods. Aircraft PT-ZNF has already conducted stability tests using high and low-speed drogues. Dry contact air refuelling tests will be conducted before the end of 2016.
OGMA Industria Aeronautics de Portugal manufactures the sponsons and doors of the main landing gear, which is designed by another Portuguese company, Empresa de Engengaria.
The KC-390 is powered by two International Aero Engines V2500-E5s, as used by the A320. They feature minor FADEC modifications for specific military tasks.
AEL Sistemas, a Brazilian subsidiary of Elbit Systems, makes the mission computer, head-up displays and self-protection system including missile warning receivers.
Cobham Mission Equipment supply the KC-390’s air refuelling probe, auxiliary fuselage fuel tanks and wing-mounted refuelling pods. The probe is positioned immediately above the flight deck for safety and ease of engagement.
