      They do not shell out badly, but what are we in this regard, what money are we spending? Although, you still need to consider efficiency.

        Of course, it would be nice to place a similar plate on "our" aircraft, but the assessment of efficiency is too subjective. Let the plate be similar.

      And who is easy in this life. The control of drones requires more of those personnel on earth. Starting from technicians and ending with the service of the MCC tracking and guidance satellites ..

        And the fact that the F-22 is second only to the B-52 in price, leaving everyone else far behind, does it surprise you?

        Okay, does the Reaper's flight cost nearly the same as that of a strategist?

        Indicative shot. And, it happens that the abbreviation UAV automatically evokes the image of a small airplane.

      The Hornet F18 is an advanced machine of its time, it was the first to implement a program to reduce labor and operating costs at the aircraft design stage. This is the first time on jet combat aircraft .......

      I join why such things are written only about foreign aviation equipment, but about our numbers, only vague statements, everything is super, etc. .. Author, can you deal with this issue? I would like to know how much our fighters eat, or the contrast will be too sharp and not in our favor. It is clear that in this matter we are inferior, but only by how much? After all, we have in service heavy and very heavy vehicles, which in Syria destroyed the budget for the year of war in three months, we had to urgently declare victory and send most of the boards home.

        Then you can roughly calculate how much it costs us the war in Syria, and this is classified information. bully
        An hour of flight of the Tu-160 (without combat use) cost 2008 thousand rubles in 580. according to General Nogovitsyn.

    The cheapest in operation is the T-6A Teksan training aircraft, the most expensive is the E-4B control plane ($ 149 thousand). Next in cost are the B-2A and the Open Skies OC-135B.

      Therefore, in the world there is still a demand for all sorts of SuperTukano, Tractors and Sesny with Mavericks + actively sawing AHRLAS.

      For it is cheap and effective according to broads.

    Judging by the schedule, the use of strike UAVs is twice as expensive as the use of fighters and is comparable to the use of B-1A. Dear little thing.

    it would be necessary to compare the cost of our flights, in order to understand how much you can bankrupt amers by raising their air force in the air)))) (of course, a joke)

      Same, if not more. SU-24 is especially expensive, it has very low-cost engines, only about $ 9000 in fuel, it is very expensive to operate and has low reliability, it requires a lot of spare parts and consumables ..... big labor for 1 hour of flight of technical staff, although the cost of our ITS is less .... And it is not yet known who is ruining whom? Their machine works properly, and we only work out, like everyone else, its work .....

    Finally, at least someone prompted the audience to think about the price (s) of the issue. If it could be compared with the technical and economic indicators of Soviet technology, then questions would inevitably arise: 1) who is to blame? 2) what to do with it? No wonder many rightly drew attention to the relationship between F-16 and F | A-18.

      Interestingly, there are specialists on the forum who, at the level of an engineer with work experience, can analyze and draw conclusions on the operation and reliability of different types of combat aircraft, after all, factory characteristics are often advertising in nature and do not fully reflect the temporal characteristics and do not take into account all the features of the preparation and operation of combat aircraft. Do you remember the saying with the taste of "black humor": The designer is dry, the plane is wet, the technician is wet, and the pilot is d ... "... Although the SU-27 and its sequels are distinguished by a very convenient layout and maintenance at all types of training, but routine maintenance at the complexes is not well thought out, and often not performed and requires very high-level specialists, who are not and cannot be in the units ...

    The news is presented as if this portal presented this infographic only yesterday. Meanwhile, as this picture was presented six months ago.
    By the way, I advise you to visit this portal itself and read how information on Syria is presented by a "potential ... partner".
