In the Northern Fleet conducted large-scale flights of naval aviation

During flight shifts, the crews of anti-submarine aircraft Tu-142, Il-38 and Ka-27 marine helicopters aviation Northern fleet (SF) made training flights, during which they worked out the tasks of searching and tracking submarines of a conditional enemy using a full range of anti-submarine weapons.

Also, the planned flights on Su-25 UTG aircraft were carried out by pilots of carrier-based aviation of a separate naval aviation regiment. They have worked out the elements of conducting air combat training and interception of high-altitude targets, improved the skills of performing simple, complex and aerobatic flying.

In total, more than 1000 servicemen of the flight and technical staff, aviation support services for flight operations took part in the fulfillment and maintenance of training flights of the naval aviation of the Northern Fleet.

Aviation operations were preceded by thorough preparation, checking the readiness of the engineering and technical staff, ground services and specialists to provide flight training tasks.

The naval aviation of the Northern Fleet is armed with Su-33 deck-based fighters, Su-25UTG shipboard training aircraft, Tu-142, Il-38 anti-submarine aircraft, Ka-27 helicopters, and An-12 transport aircraft.

    That's right, the Arctic clearing of Russia must be constantly monitored and protected! Well done aviators! We enter the normal mode of combat training.

    The basis of the Navy’s striking power should be an aviation group (MRA, fighter aircraft, electronic warfare, AWACS, reconnaissance aircraft, airfield support equipment, including air defense systems, adapted for operational deployment of airborne forces) of central command (Navy), assigned to the command of the theater of operations ( fleet / flotillas). SO HOLD, the country needs experienced staffing officers.

    It would also be necessary to modernize the airborne radar of fighters, ensuring the use of UR R-77, the purchase of the necessary ammunition for these missiles. The main direction of modernization of fighter aircraft (including the Navy) is the restoration of the ability to conduct air combat with a modern enemy. It is necessary to adopt the UR of ultra-long-range combat KS-172 to destroy enemy DRLO aircraft, and to have new DRLO aircraft themselves. All naval combat aircraft must be able to refuel in the air, the fleet needs a full-time tanker air group. The "interested participation" of the Navy in the development program of the 5th generation fighter is required in complex coordination with the creation of promising Aircraft, Airborne and Airborne Aircraft.

    We cannot categorically agree with the opinion of General Sokerin, who suggested "immediately reassign the Air Force of the fleets to the Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force and Air Defense of the country." Obviously, there are a huge number of problems in the interaction and understanding of the command of the Navy and naval aviation. However, these problems need to be addressed, not avoided. There will be no fleet without aviation. How there will be no effective fleet without the Navy itself realizing the main, leading role of aviation in the modern war at sea.

      So now it seems like brigade subordination, and the brigade command has in its hands all the resources of the district, regardless of their belonging to the military branches, they are all tied to the headquarters of the brigade. Accordingly, a brigade with the prospect of a strike from the sea strengthens naval aviation, etc. Reassignment of the arms of the troops does it continue to play a role if the troops are divided not by combat, but by complex brigades?

    Or maybe Sokerin has an account with a Swiss bank? After all, as far as I remember, the Navy and the Air Force existed separately in the Union.

    Why is this unification?

      Probably for pooling resources and recruiting from the remnants of both combat-ready mobile groups ... which will fly away into geopolitics meet.
      Sokerin Yeltsin’s general who has completed a military career and has begun a political one — usually masons, but not oligarchs — you need to become a governor for money or something. The bill would be harmful.

    Doctors should heal.
    Plowers must plow the land.
    Pilots must fly.

    PS And if not, then this is not life then ...

    I liked the movie "Kursk" in troubled waters. As I remember the Northern Fleet, I remember Kursk. Who watched the movie? When will we find out the truth?

    Since all serviceable Su - 33s sailed on Kuznetsovo (8 units), the "interception of high-altitude targets" was carried out by the Su - 25 UTG - a subsonic attack aircraft without a pressurized cabin, sighting equipment and weapons! Hurray for the fortitude!
