What brand new gear? 8 wheel boogies? Do you have a reference for something more than some design changes compared to the other 777? Bring it on.
You can do the google search I am sure. Not hard to find. New gear. New OEM entirely. From a new country too. New gear for a plane that isn't yet built, lacking ability to handle aircraft being shopped to airlines would be pretty dumb. I don't think they are dumb.
I can do my google search, you do not seem able to do it.
New OEM yes, that was also in the reference I gave in my post. New gear, no.
The new manufacturer will do the MLG for all still produced 777 from next year, 777F, 777-300ER and the gear for the 777-8/9. The old manufacturer would not agree to a price reduction, so Boeing found somebody who made it for a lower price for them, that is the reason for a new OEM.
In the article from the Seattle Times is also described what changes are done to the gear between the 777-300ER and the 777-8/9, same maximum weight limitation. Design changes yes, a new gear no. Boeing gives the same tyres and the same measurements for the bogies of the "new" MLG for the 777-8/9 as for the MLG for the 777-300ER
You do not even have to do a search, just read the references I gave in the last post.
The point is that the 777-300ER is with its gear already on the limit regarding pavement pressure, the next step up would be to increase the number of bogies, perhaps a central boogie like on the A340, or go for two 8 wheel boogies, or perhaps an 6 wheel boogies longer, broader and with far bigger tyres.
But Boeing kept to the old size and design of the MLG and is not increasing MTOW for the 777-8/9.
