Military Review

Russian aircraft conquered the Middle East

No matter how the American F-16 and the French Rafale whirled in the sky, all attention was focused on Russian aircraft. Fighter generation 4 ++ Su-35 and Su-30CM overshadowed the western competitors at the air show in the UAE. Not far behind them is the novelty of the domestic military-industrial complex - the lightweight MiG-35 fighter. However, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation plans to provide first its own needs for this aircraft, and only then allow its export.

    Well, in the field of military aviation, we are ahead of the rest ... and what prevents it from doing so in the field of civil aircraft ...

      it’s like you’re not living in Russia directly)) we have "in the field of military ... almost anything, we are ahead of the rest", but we always had a very bad time with the transfer of military developments to the commercial sector.

      What prevents ??? Selfish interests of managers from the aviation industry. Well, there is no wing specialist in the minaviaprom!

        Everything is very simple - starting from five and ending with Aeroflot buying something over a hill is a diversion of profits from Russian taxation, the scheme is old and simple as a mammoth shit. There are nuances: the Amer and Naglosaxon financial authorities monitor such transactions and, if desired, take our “entrepreneurs” for tender places, according to Italian laws, kickbacks are not a crime, from here it becomes clear why there is so much Italian in all grandiose construction projects for budget money from plumbing to doors and equipment. Hence the groans on Parmesan from retail, used Boeing from Pakistan and other Honduras, salmon from Norway (well, there is nowhere else to take it), etc. Having made a profit of 100% on Russian milk, retail shows a loss on “golden” salmon or Parmesan (well, they didn’t sell out and rotted) pays taxes from five kopecks of total profit and whines on the TV how vile the state is and how hard it is for them (see how many taxes shops selling domestic product and how many large networkers pay), and Aeroflot’s “managers” buying an old Boeing for two prices and receiving half this amount in the form of a kickback, whine that the economy does not work out and you need to raise the price of tickets or subsidize them from the budget. So nah .. is it a domestic manufacturer?

      At one time (stagnation), we had TU144, small aircraft flew to all regional centers, dignified aviation arrived on the first call (in 1964, a guy jumped off a cliff into a river and broke his neck, an hour later a corn coop arrived with doctors , 200 km from the regional center, he took and took a man), Meteora and Zarnitsy walked along the rivers, and ships that drove people for pennies went to every village on the banks of a smaller river ... I’m just a fuy ... YES WE A COMMUNISM LIVED !!! And now, the ICEEC has flown to the domestic (from the 1970 point of view) Hero of Russia ...

        At one time (stagnation), we did not have “effective managers” and now Russia has turned into a cabbage field from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok on which all breeds and stripes graze and will not get drunk!

    And what kind of concessions will the Ministry of Defense meet these needs? Something is wrong here, obviously! These gentlemen are not saying anything, as always. Although our planes are pretty good, something special is not visible.

    They were so diligently falling apart in the 90s that we still cannot concentrate. And some of the facilities are completely outside Russia, including the so-called. former "allies". The composites will now be domestic. And for the rest, wow, how much more is needed. (engine, avionics, etc.)

    Is it possible that they will do it at first, but it can’t be like this, we have partners in the first place, but what remains for ourselves. For ours, this policy has been practiced since Soviet times.
    I first encountered this in 1970. It was the USSR Championship in aircraft modeling in Izhevsk and drove us on an excursion to IzhMash. Naturally, they were not allowed on the military commissariat, they showed how IL motorcycles are made. It is very interesting, at one end of the conveyor the frame is bare, and at the other end a finished motorcycle. A lot of things have been shown. And at the end of the type of warehouse for finished motorcycles, a huge gray-green herd of pieces of 300-400 IZh and 30-40 pieces playing with chrome and almost all the colors of the rainbow, also IZh. We ask why they make such a difference, they answer us - this is abroad for export. To our questions, and what, the Soviet people are not worthy of beautiful motorcycles, they answered that we can’t hit the foreigners face in the dirt, but it’s good for us, because there is a shortage. And we were 14-16 years old, and still resentment inside sits from such an attitude towards the people, but this is not a reason to betray the country.
