Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 279 – Technologies exchange (Part 2)
As the political situation in the Soviet Union worsens, Kirilenko had more chances. Now, it was only half the price of the previous year for a motorcycle production line. It was easier to get technologies too.
If it was last year, it was impossible to get the technologies for aircraft. Now, it was not a problem for Kirilenko.
There were many technologies which Feng Yu had no use, and it was not worth selling as the selling prices were not high.
So, Feng Yu intent to use these technologies to exchange for the technologies he needed and the rest will be given away in exchange for favors. Many times, favors were worth much more than money.
March. The first batch of Modified Ilyshin 76 planes arrived at Bing City Airport, and all the 5 airline companies got 1 plane each.
Together with the aircraft, there were two aircraft engines of two different models. They were taken away by Bing City Aviation Factory. There were placed separately in two different workshops. Other than a few designated engineers, no one could get near the engines.
Once again, Feng Yu came to Hou Haitao’s office. This time, he arrived empty-handed.
“Manager Feng, where is the information for the Antonov aircraft technologies?” Hou Haitao asked anxiously.
“Director Hou, why are you so anxious? Has your factory finished researching on the Ilyshin engine? You cannot be too greedy. You must do things step by step. I had already promised you. When did I go back on my words?” Feng Yu said slowly.
“Then why are you here?”
Feng Yu was pissed. Are you saying that I cannot come here if I don’t have anything for you?
“Director Hou, although I did not bring the technologies for the aircraft engine with me, I am able to get the blueprints for Mil Helicopters and some related technologies. The technologies include the Double rotors and Coaxial rotors. Although these technologies are not the most advanced, I think it will be useful for your factory. However, it seems that I am not welcome here and I will let my Soviet friend know that I do not want these technologies.” Feng Yu stood up and was prepared to leave.
“Eh, Manager Feng, don’t be like this. Xiao Xu, what are you doing? Where is the tea for Manager Feng? Go and get the tea leaves from that metal container. Brew a cup of tea with those tea leaves.”
Hou Haitao held Feng Yu back. He did not expect Feng Yu to be able to get the Mil Helicopters technologies and blueprint. These were technologies for one of the best helicopters in the world. Currently, the world’s largest helicopter is the Mil-26, and the technologies used in this helicopter is very advanced.
Hou Haitao was still feeling vexed these few days. His higher-ups had ordered him to give a copy of the aircraft technologies to Shen City’s Aviation Factory, saying that factory was also researching aircraft engines and could use the Soviet Union technologies as a reference.
Hou Haitao was furious. He had worked so hard for these technologies, but Shen City Aviation Factory could also get a copy of it.
His higher-ups knew that he could get the technologies for other models of aircraft and he even got the latest aircraft engine sample. Now, he was regretting to try to claim credit so early. All his efforts benefited others.
Today, Feng Yu came over and told him that he could get the Mil Helicopters technologies, and this made him very happy.
This time, he will not report to his superiors. He will only report after his factory had finished learning the technologies and produce the helicopters. It will also be a great achievement.
Although aircraft engines’ technologies might be more valuable, in Bing City Aviation Factory, helicopters’ technologies were the most important.
“Hmmm…… This tea taste so good. How come I had never drink before?” Feng Yu turned to Hou Haitao.
Hou Haitao gritted his teeth and said: “If Manager Feng does not mind that the box had only half remaining, you can bring it back.” These tea leaves were given to him by a high ranking military leader. He does not even bear to drink it himself.
“Hahaha, how can I do this……. Secretary Xu, bring those tea leaves here. Later I will bring the tea leaves along with me when I leave. Don’t even think of changing the leaves in the box. I remembered the smell of those leaves.”
“Cough…… Manager Feng, how are you going to sell those helicopters technologies?’ Hou Haitao anxiously asked. He was not concerned with those tea leaves.
“Sell? I am not selling! I only want to exchange. Exchange for all of your factory’s automobile technologies. Especially the turbocharged engine technologies. I know your factory have completed the research for this.”
“All the technologies? This……”
“Why? You think Mil helicopter technologies is not worth all your automobile technologies? Director Hou, if you hesitate any longer, I will not exchange with you. Anyway, I will be buying the Volga automobile production line, and it comes along with their technologies. I have also hired a number of their engineers. Worst come to worst, I will spend more money and get them to research for me.” Feng Yu said slowly.
“When will they be able to finish researching the engine? It is not an easy task.” Hou Haitao sneered.
“I can wait.” Feng Yu crossed his arms. Let’s see who was more anxious.
“Manager Feng, I remember you mentioned that you can get the technologies of other models of aircraft. Those are useless to you. Why not exchange those with me too?” Hou Haitao said.
“you are wrong. It is not I can get those technologies. The technologies are already with me. Do you want the Antonov aircraft building techniques?” Feng Yu asked.
“Yes. Why not?” Hou Haitao was overjoyed. This was one more technology.
“fine. Then use your humidifiers and bladeless fans shares to exchange for it.” Feng Yu said and smiled.
“Manager Feng, are you joking with me?” Hou Haitao was shocked. Those dividends from those shares was a lot every year.
“What do you think? This is contributing to the nation. You can’t even bear to let go of those shares?” Feng Yu purposely said.
Hou Haitao was cursing in his heart. You do not need that money, but the Aviation Factory needed it.
Hou Haitao thought for a while and said: “Manager Feng, can you get the Mikoyan MiG fighter jets technologies?”
Feng Yu replied with a dark face: “No!”
Damn. Mikoyan MiG fighter jets were the Soviet Union’s top fighter jets, and it was one of the best fighter jets in the world. Kirilenko was not powerful enough to get those.
“Manager Feng, I do need the most advanced technologies. I will be happy with the technologies of the old models, which the Soviet Union sold to other countries. For instances, the engine technology. You must help me. With this technology, our country’s aviation technology will be more advanced.”
China had bought the old models of Mikoyan MiG jets and had disassembled it before. Later, China’s own fighter jets were imitated from the Mikoyan MiG jets. But China’s fighter jet could barely break the sound barrier. With these technologies, China’s R&D will save a lot of time.
“I can’t promise you anything but…… I can try!”
