Media: VKS plan to have at least 700 fighters

64
The number of fighters in the composition of combat regiments VKS in the future should be at least 700 units, transmits Lenta.ru report message source in the Ministry of Defense.




“This figure is achievable by 2025 year. Fighters will be about 40 percent of the total number of aircraft in the Air Force fleet, the rest - shock - attack aircraft and bombers, as well as reconnaissance, transport, training and special machines, ”said the source.

According to him, the basis of the fleet of fighters will be the Sukhoi Design Bureau cars.

“Su-30, Su-35, a number of upgraded Su-27 will still remain, in addition, will be in combat parts of the fifth generation machine. The rest is modernized MiG-31, MiG-29 and new MiG-35 ”, said the source.

He also noted that "the total number of combat-ready fighters in the Air Force should increase by more than a third."

Bmpd blog comment: “From the text of the material it is not clear whether we are talking about the number of fighters only in the Russian Air Force, or the Russian Armed Forces as a whole, including the Marine Aviation Navy, as well as whether only aircraft of the "combat regiments", or all parts of the airborne forces / Armed Forces (including combat training centers and training and test units) are counted. With any numbers of ratings, you should know how the planes of the 45th Army of the Air Force and Air Defense, which now formally refers to Naval Aviation, are counted.

Speaking about the current state of the fighter fleet of the Russian Armed Forces, including both the VKS and Naval Aviation, it should be noted that now, according to known data, it has 246 new fighters with a lifetime of less than 10 years (58 Su-35С, 79 Su- 30M, 20, 30, 2, 12, 27, 3, 44, 29, 29, 23, 29, 440, 180, 27, 20, 33; 120 MiG-29, 120 MiG-31).

Of this number directly to the VCS include 210 new fighters (58 Sioux 35S, 66 Sioux 30SM, 20 Sioux 30M2, 12 Sioux 27SM3, 44 MiG-29SMT ten MiG-29UB) and 370 old fighters, including upgraded ( approximately 160 Su-27, 120 MiG-29, 90 MiG-31), and almost all the “old” MiG-29 (with the exception of the air group in Armenia) are already used for training purposes or are terminated by operation.

While maintaining the current organizational structure of the VKS (without new transmissions of their units and formations to the Navy), the number of fighters in 700 looks quite achievable for the Russian Navy to the 2025 year, although it will require maintaining the supplies of Su-35С and Su-30М fighters to the average overall rate 25-30 aircraft per year during the 2021-2025 period. ”

            And who will answer that then. The prophets are all on vacation. 20 - it’s somehow you took very little, they should be up to 20 years old. 12 - quite realistic, maybe 40 - but this is already in my opinion very optimistic. I am eyeing the modern construction pace of the SU-80 and SU-30.

          Did you understand what you wrote? To swell so much money into the PAK FA program, to attract Indians to this and enter a share with them on this fighter, create a pre-production car (11 board) and then turn everything off?
          PAK FA in the series will be unique. In what quantity it is not yet clear, but I believe at least 50 pieces at least, otherwise it makes no sense to make a series at all, in view of the cost recovery. But my opinion is that the T-50s will be at least no less than the Raptor. I can assume that if they will be transferred to our troops by 25-30 vehicles a year, counting from next year, then we get about 200-250 vehicles. At the same time, I believe, as the PAK FA is being finalized, it will begin to replace the SU-30 (which will be re-profiled only for export) and the SU-35C in the future, which means that the money that will have to go to purchase the 30s and 35 -x will be spent on the purchase of the T-50.

            The plane is morally and physically outdated at the stage of creation, alas, this happens not only with us (Zumvolt for example).

            The money spent on the creation of the project is already beneficial in the form of new engines and avionics, which can be put on other aircraft.

            If you look at the dynamics of the development of this project, you can see that the Moscow Region has already made such a decision and simply does not make it public.

              Are you serious? PAK FA with product 30 it will not even be a 5th generation fighter (although here the concept of generations is very arbitrary), but a transitional fighter to 6th generation, that is 5+. And it will be a completely different machine than the one now.

                Only because of the rotating nozzle, adding the T-50 to 5mu is not logical.

                20 aircraft by 2025 is a trite termination of this project.
                Yes, and they are unlikely to make 20 pieces, it is better to do more SU-35.

                  By your logic, both the SU-35S and SU-30SM are also 5-generation fighters, since they have all-angle nozzles ...
                  PAK FA is a fundamentally different machine, which surpasses the SU-35 and SU-30 and MIG-35 in all respects. So for reference, on the Raptor there is one AFAR, on the MIG-35 (if the ZhUK-E was touched) one AFAR, and the T-50 has 5! Plus, it’s exactly under it that they create an arsenal, an electronic warfare complex, pilot equipment, etc. ... none of the well-known MFIs can compete on equal terms with the PAK FA, no matter how patriotic this sounds.
                  And you are telling me that the T-50 is a "dead" project, speaking of the Su-35 and Su-30. Just the 35th and 30th are transitional vehicles to the PAK FA, on which many components and systems are run in, which are later installed on the T-50.

                    No, according to his logic, nozzles are not the basis for giving a plane the rank of 5th generation. Neither perspective, nor rotating. It is necessary to read carefully.

            I completely disagree with you.

            Superbobik is needed for domestic airlines, you just need to squeeze competitors out of them and give air carriers credits for the purchase of our new super bobiks.

            I saw this Bobby at the air show, a pretty, small and unpretentious airplane would perfectly fit for transporting vacationers or prisoners to Kolyma to Crimea.

            MS-21 is in the same pile, we must have our own aircraft, the aircraft is quite decent, we need to squeeze out the Boeing and Airbus from local transportation.
            Of course, it is necessary to improve the quality of service and the supply of spare parts, and airlines will vlom engage in crude aircraft with troubled support.
            They will have to, like trying to persuade with good loans and other effective methods.

Although by then it is unlikely that they will have enough time) Su-33 (20 pcs., Will they survive until the 25th year?)

    It would be great, although I doubt the reality of this figure. By 2025, in the best case, about 50 Su-27s and 100 MiG-31s ​​made in the USSR will remain in service. Let's add 250 boards produced after 1991 to get 400.
    It turns out that from 2017 to 2024, another 300 fighter planes need to be produced (this is even if you take the VKS together with the Navy). Plus export. In principle, it is real, but at the limit of the capabilities of the current industry.
    To successfully solve this problem, the restoration of production capacities (Sokol, Banner of Labor, etc.) is necessary.

        It turns out that it is necessary somewhere around 38 boards per year. That is, a little more than now. Plus, the question is about the transition of Komsomolsk to the T-50 and export orders.
        Let's hope that there will be no problems ..
        And then 150 living boards of still Soviet-built by 2025, which, of course, I was optimistic about.

      The insane lag in combat helicopters and training aircraft attracts attention. and in general, with our small budget, in comparison with the united Europe or China, the need to have a comparable Air Force, and so on - is sadly and economically attractive for utopia. though nowhere to go

      export is needed so that there is something to rivet yourself. it’s better for yourself 20 and 50 Algeria, for example, to do, than only 5 for yourself due to internal reserves. and it’s not our enemy that Algeria or India. another thing is china selling s400 - frankly fraught

    in Turkey (NATO member) about 350 fighters. Given that in Siberia it is impossible to do without airplanes, it turns out that in the European part of the Russian Federation only Turkey can set an equilibrium number of fighters. belay And in general, for such a huge country like Russia, 700 fighters are not enough! what

    700 pieces is a very serious figure, especially since the cars are some of the best in the world and the pilots, respectively ... by 2025, I think the T-50s will be no more than 10% of the total, the remaining 35th and 30th, plus Mig- 35 (?) .... and of course, naval aviation was hardly included here

      700 pieces is a drop in the bucket for such a vast territory. It is necessary to have at least twice as much, and three times better. For money, given the length of supply, we’ll pull. The life of the aircraft is approximately 30 years, so it is necessary to produce 50-60 fighters per year to maintain the number of 1500-1800 aircraft.

    Only yesterday wrote about it. Guess the number in 700 fighter aircraft by 2025 looks quite achievable. And it’s clearly only about VCS, and about airplanes in combat shelves. And the vast majority of aircraft will be not older than 2010 of the year, and of the "Soviet" ones, only the modernized MiG-31BM / BSM and a number of modernized Su-27SM / SM3 will remain.
    Navy Air Force is another topic. And the 45th Air Force and Air Defense is the Northern Fleet.

      This is overly optimistic. It turns out that you need to build more than 500 boards.

        bmpd writes: Thus, according to an optimistic scenario, in 2025, the Russian Air Force fighter fleet may number up to 480 – 500 fighters of a new construction with a service life of less than 20 years (approximately 50 T-50S, 150-170 Su-35S, 150-170 Su-30SM, 30 Su-27SM3 / Su-30M2, 50 MiG-29SMT / UB, 36 MiG- 35) and up 210 modernized fighters of old types (up to 90 Su-27SM / SM3, 120 MiG-31BM / BSM).

          Chuchka is not a writer, chuchka is a bookkeeper smile This is me to myself, of course)))
          As for 300 new ones, this is if you include sailors and test centers (where there are a lot of planes) among the 700.
          If you count only the videoconferencing system and only in combat regiments, you get 400.

          30 Su-27SM3 / Su-30M2, 50 MiG-29SMT / UB, 36 MiG-35

          50 T-50C

          This is already optimistic, but possible. Again, part in the CA.

          But in this I do not believe absolutely. 150 old boards is a maximum of 100 Mig-31 and up to 50 Su-27.
          PS Well, I'm for optimism. The more, the better!

    Stupidity, stupidity, greed and state crime! Well, we don’t need so many heavy fighters !!! Where are the light cars? I know perfectly both the MiG-29 and Su-27. Su-27 capricious, difficult to operate, it's tryndets, comrades! Where are the technicians and engineers exploiting this shit (compared to the MiG-29/35)?

    Are you serious? PAK FA with product 30 it will not even be a 5th generation fighter (although here the concept of generations is very arbitrary), but a transitional fighter to 6th generation, that is 5+. And it will be a completely different machine than the one now.

    With such engines, it is 4 ++ and not 5E PAK FA while it shines with its nozzles in general as 4+
