Silovsky S-92 Project
The construction of a multi-purpose helicopter for all services.
The Silovsky S-92 multi-purpose helicopter was first developed by
engineers of the Gronkian Empire, but with the collapse of that regime, the plans
and manufacturing plant fell into the capable hands of the government of Ansonia.
With assistance from UMAC aeronautical engineers, the Ansonian government commenced
manufacture of the helicopters for domestic needs, and Utania's UMAC became a partner
Small general purpose helicopters have a wide variety of uses, from
the transport- ation of troops to a battlefield, or picking up the wounded, to
movement of supplies.
If you have aircraft construction, welding, general manufacturing,
electrical, mechanical or other engineering skills, please feel free to contact
UMAC to discuss your career in the construction of aircraft or other military and
civil vessels and equipment.
We are always in need of talented people, and UMAC is not only an equal opportunity
employer, but is one of the better paying corporations in the country.
Those without specific skills mentioned above are also encouraged to join the company

The silovsky S-92 is an Ansonian owned designed being built under contract in Utania
for the domestic, and ultimately international, market. It is the long-term replacement
for all Utanian general purpose helicopters.
Upon independence, Utanian military authorities recognised early that the country's
fleet of 18 army, 16 Navy and 10 air-force general purpose helicopters were becoming
increasingly expensive to maintain owing to their old and varying ages, differing models,
and therefore wide variety of parts and expertise required to keep them maintained. In
addition, more vehicles would be required in the longer-term.
Simultaneously, the government of Ansonia, a republic newly independent from
Northern Gronk had several Silovsky helicopter factories in its possession. Therefore,
an agreement was forged in March 301ap between the Ansonian and Utanian governments that
Utanian engineers from UMAC, with expertise from the Firecat project, would assist with
re-energising the Silovsky factories. In exchange, Utania would replicate the Silovsky
factories in Utania.
An initial order of five Silovsky S-92 helicopters were purchased from the Ansonian
factory, before Utania began domestic production.
However, in 301ap, in a historic agreement with the Zartanian Government, several
helicopter designs were produced, with fifty general purpose helicopters built. The TH-1
with a larger capacity, higher-power, and greater range has since become the standard
military transportation helicopter. This means orders of the Silovsky s-92 have declined,
with the Utanian Coast Guard the primary buyer for search and rescue missions, alongside
some private purchases.
The Silovsky S-92 remains a key component of the Utanian military, providing a
smaller aircraft for a wide variety of missions. The Silovsky has helped to replace the
aging fleet of varied aircraft in the Utanian military.
A C1 million "royalty" is to be paid to the Ansonian government for each Silovsky
manufactured in Utania for export.

The initial cost of the Silovsky S-92s as purchased from the Ansonian government
was Û125 million for five, however this far-exceeded manufacture costs, and
a figure closer to Û10 million was considered long-term normal, though excludes
factory establishment costs for UMAC, which were fully covered by the Utanian government.
This design is entirely borrowed from the UK Sea-King Helicopters, with a few minor
modifications, in case anyone was thinking of poaching me to commence a career in aircraft
design engineering. ;-)
