Sukhoi handed over Su-34 to VKS RF

80
By 2020, the Russian army will be able to completely replace the outdated Su-24 with new front-line bombers. Today, October 16, the TASS news agency reported that the Sukhoi company handed over to the Russian Defense Ministry a batch of Su-34 front bomber.


Today, the company "Sukhoi" handed over to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation the second batch of Su-34 front-line bombers as part of the 2017 state defense order of the year. The planes took off from the airfield of the Novosibirsk Aviation Plant named after V.P. Chkalov and headed to the place of deployment
- The press service of PJSC "Company" Sukhoi.

Sukhoi handed over Su-34 to VKS RF


To date, Sukhoi has collected more than a hundred Su-34 front-line bombers. The plant received its first order for the 32 of the Su-34 aircraft in the 2008 year, the second (on the 92 aircraft) in the 2012 year. The completion of the contract is scheduled for 2020 year, after which the Ministry of Defense plans to order more from 30 to 70 Su-34.

Su-34 - a multifunctional fighter-bomber, designed to strike at ground and surface targets in the face of strong opposition to enemy air defenses. In terms of its combat capabilities, the Su-34 belongs to the 4 ++ generation and is capable of performing basic combat missions without escorting fighters. Due to the high speed and maneuverability of the bomber can independently conduct an air battle with enemy fighters. The plane received the unofficial nickname "Duckling" because of the nose, in the form resembling a duck's beak, reports "Warspot".

        The plane received the unofficial nickname "Duckling" because of the bow, in the shape of a duck beak,

        We are not satisfied with the pace of 12-14 aircraft per year ..., at least 30 per year .... This is the first.
        Secondly: SU-24M replace all previously destroyed SU-17M4 and MIG-27 (ISA aircraft) in the airborne forces.
        And they will fly even after 2020, because there is no lower class bomber ... In Syria, the SU-24M fly instead of IBA aircraft, there are no goals for it .... There are simply no others ... This is despite the fact that the SU- 24M in terms of operation and costs is a very unsuccessful car, it has become outdated for a long time ... But again, it replaces other machines that do not exist at all ...
        And thirdly, there are so few of them that talking about a complete replacement for the Su-34 by 2020 means looking like an idiot ... We need at least 300 front-line bombers ... So in 2020 we will still be in full flight, and taking into account the absence of lighter strike aircraft, even further, including for naval aviation ...

            plus one and a half hundred Su24 seems "M" ostolny no longer fly. + pieces 30 "r". Yes, plus one and a half hundred "rook". Yes, plus all sorts of "strategists" almost one and a half hundred.
            Well, there are four hundred different attack helicopters. They are not enough. The aviation regiment, by the way, is 30 vehicles. The motto is something like a hundred. And, given that in Syria we are, in fact, doing a combined air division .... I do not know what people are not comfortable with. And where are these people going to use thousands of planes ....

              Absolutely right! Now formed three regiments of three squadrons, a total of 36 units of Su-34 in each. A fourth regiment is being formed, while there is one squadron of 12 Su-34 units in it.

                    You are not in yourself - there are not so many Su-34s in combat regiments.
                    In total, 102 aircraft were handed over, of which 7 were pre-production and experimental, and in the 929th GLIC and
                    4th GCPFPPiVI are more than 10 units.
                    And you already have 124 in combat units, stop imagining!

              And you will compare with the capabilities of NATO, or with the American F-15E, there are at least 3 times more of them, and you calculated the entire strike component of aviation.

                Yes, they do not have 12000 aircraft. For example, in the same Bundeswehr, of all that are available, only 35 units can rise into the sky. This was already several reports of official and defense mines of Germany said.

                Well, at first the figure itself is a bit strange and big. Maybe it's all LA? Given the latest TCB?
                More ... USA is the first economy in the world. And the rest of the NATO countries are by no means the last. Agree, there is something to maintain this park and where to look for pilots for it.
                Even further ... the USA is waging several wars (Iraq, Afghanistan, one way or another is present in Syria, defends the euro and Pei’s allies, puts pressure on Kim Jong-un and the other, the other and the other have a gesheft) They have tasks for such a in LA. We do not have ! (Well, do you seriously take front-line aviation as a deterrent in the nuclear era? Rather, it is ICBMs of all classes, strategists and "caliber" missiles with vigorous filling.)
                The result!? - the result is as follows: our Armed Forces must quantitatively and qualitatively dominate the region, providing unconditional advantage in conflicts such as Syrian or Georgian.

          And thirdly, there are so few of them that talking about a complete replacement for the Su-34 by 2020 means looking like an idiot ... We need at least 300 front-line bombers ...

          So we have one in Moscow? The ministry believes that we need about 34 in the 200's. And this is enough to solve existing problems. Over 100 have been built. The production rate is growing and the plant is handing over new lots ahead of schedule. By 2020, the pace will have time to complete the entire contract. No need to panic. A fleet of existing Su-24s is quite enough and there is a reserve at the storage bases that is not used due to the same Su-34s that are gradually replacing the fleet of oldies.

              SU-24 and SU-24M

              I know this, but I write in general terms as a generation of front-line bombers. And I agree with the speaker below. At our training ground in Akhtubinsk no one complained about him.
              What is now at the storage bases - yes, it can be deleted due to new boards from the factory. But when the 34s were few, it was from the storage bases that the sides for modernization came. In combat units, they tried not to reduce the amount. Now it’s the same with tanks. 400 T-90 from the first series with cast towers are likely to be the first to be brought to the level of T-90M, as soon as the bases are exhausted, they will begin to pull up newer ones.

          In fact, the Su-24 rested in a Bose in Syria, the Su-24M2 flies, about the fact that it is a VERY UNSUCCESSFUL machine, complete nonsense, a little more than 50 crashes and LPs for 1500 cars, I hope these machines will last quite a long time and by 2020 year will still be in service!

            Su-24M must be removed for a long time, but it does not work. With the destruction of the SU-17M4 and MIG-27, this aircraft in Syria does their job, not its own. If we compare the reliability and laboriousness of a 1-hour raid, it is almost an order of magnitude worse than even the SU-17M4, and there is no need to even remember the SU-27 and its modifications .... Su-24M is hell for techies .... I did not start this conversation ... Receive, if you wanted honestly ...

            You read what nonsense is the MO (VKS) ... SU-34 was created to replace the front-line bomber SU-24M, but they call it a fighter-bomber. Is it with a take-off weight of 40 tons? And some degenerates propose to make an attack aircraft out of it .... Ingenuity, or rather dodgy narrow-headed generals, should not be occupied ... We completely lack the class of attack aircraft with a take-off weight of 20 tons, and they want to replace with two hundred heavy vehicles not only front-line ones, but and these attack planes .... SU-25 attack aircraft partially cover this range, but there are very few of them ... Well, they have at least a wing of unchanged sweep, but the Georgians did - they will last a little longer than the SU-24M ... And that we will have only 200 units of heavy attack aircraft of the class of front-line bomber, which will plug all the holes ... Not only is it expensive, it is scanty for such a huge country and its interests in the world ....

Each pilot with SU-25 must be entered in the red book, because IBAshnikov, as such, are no longer there, and there is already almost time for their revival from the Su-25 pilots no .... So they sailed .... in full, with which I congratulate you .... Now about the idiots ... is everything clear?

          The cost of management is not so high in overall costs.

          But to throw bombs with wings precisely at the target, saving on their number, that means fuel and the size of the aircraft, and so on is quite an option!

            Su-34 is not a bomber.
            He is a fighter-bomber, that is, an enlarged fighter, if simple.

            The same as the F-35, only the production level, quality, modern electronics and production volumes differ by an order of magnitude.
            F-35 has one pilot helmet more expensive than our duckling%)

            And now nobody especially makes clean bombers. it’s easier to play with rackets.

                Americans launched a giant modern production of F-35, there is a photo of their factories.
                You can compare with our factories to understand what a monstrous chasm between us.

                SU-30, SU-35, SU-34 are produced in very small quantities.
                Well, in essence, this is the essence, they made different versions of aircraft and there will be a mess with spare parts.
                But there is no light fighter, the old twigs have already completely decayed and it will be dangerous to fly them.

                When the factories fulfill orders for these aircraft, we noticeably more equipment will become obsolete and decommissioned.
                That is, the fleet is decreasing.

                    So, about our rams (I’m not talking about you), the United States transferred licenses and built production to its allies in Western Europe, Israel and so on to update the fleet of their ancient aircraft with the new F-35s.

                Thank you for answering for me. I went to sleep). In major conflicts with major military powers, we will not use conventional weapons. We have a great and cheaper nuclear weapons.

        Do you know how many aircraft are now in service with the Russian Aerospace Forces? About 1200. Apparently the General Staff do not know that this is a lot. About 850 of them would have been written off long ago if there was anything to replace.
        Have you seen our country on the map? And airplanes are needed from all sides. Or you them in 10-12tys. km Will you drive in case of conflict, but on the other hand leave bare borders?
        Have you seen Israel on the map? Yes, you will find his hell there, a microscopic country, here they have 450 aircraft in service. For good, we need a couple of thousand modern aircraft with our country size. And so far we have 350 of them, the rest 30-35 years, or even older.

          It’s clear that the business is necessary ...
          Only somewhere else you need to take so many pilots, and train them .... yes, not only to train to take off, but also to land, fly and fight .... and not only pilots, but also service staff and still feed the whole people, yes not just feed, but adequately feed, etc., etc., etc. It is unlikely that we will pull all this in the foreseeable future.

          And we also need ships, aircraft carriers, tanks, missiles, etc. equipment and all in the amount of thousands, preferably yes

            Definitely somewhere to save. For example, aircraft carriers are not needed at all, and the last Soviet one would have been better written off, had not spent money on its modernization. The main expenses should be on new means of delivery of nuclear warheads, then aviation and air defense remaining on the ground forces. But the fleet is a very expensive article, and here we with our budget will never master a fifth of the American, so why then such a waste on it? In modern non-nuclear war, whoever has the sky is the winner. But we have trouble with aviation.

    Do not need a lot of Su-34x is a temporary machine. We need a modern sighting container and the maximum output (30-40pcs / year) of the Su-30SM and their upgraded (new avionics, AFAR, engines) ... We will get a universal machine for working on land and by air. And we do not waste power on different types of non-interchangeable cars and pilots.
