Syria: Su-24М2 sneaks at extremely low altitude

A short but spectacular video of the flight of the Syrian bomber Su-24М2 appeared on the Internet, reports Messenger of Mordovia.


Syria: Su-24М2 sneaks at extremely low altitude
(video)

Judging by the situation, the video was filmed in the real fighting area.

According to military experts, the ability to attack targets, being at a height of only a few tens of meters, allows the pilot to effectively overcome modern air defense systems.



“Calculations by anti-aircraft gunners can be detected by bombers directly at the time of dropping bombs or even after completing a mission. Therefore, it is not for nothing that the presence of such aircraft in Syria is of great concern to the United States and some neighbors of the Arab state, ”writes the author of the material, Leo Romanov.

He notes that “for high-precision strikes with free-fall bombs, this modification of the“ Dry ”is equipped with the modern aim-navigation complex SVP-24“ Hephaestus ””.



In addition, according to him, X-29L missiles with a semi-active air-to-ground homing head with a range of about 10 km and a powerful warhead weighing 320 kg appeared on the bombers.

The machine also received modernized navigation and electronic warfare systems that could impede the use of guided missile weapons.

        Just the opposite. For MANPADS, this cannot be worse. He stupidly does not have time to capture the target.

          From personal experience.
          Some small sites for agricultural aviation were used as targets for air-to-ground attacks. Learning objectives without the use of weapons. Then the attack was made by SU-22 and MiG-21 modifications. Attack from super shaving heights. We, on earth, appreciated the effect. It must be said that when an aircraft approaches an attacking position, a person feels the body approaching the body, even when the aircraft is still out of sight. And the guys with the "arrow" or "Stinger" have time to make themselves. Of course there is a difference if the "anti-aircraft gunner" has already taken a position, or just "off the wheels"

      The Su-24M has an extremely small combat radius, and even in small Syria it is forced to fly with hanging tanks, which significantly reduces the combat load.
      The Su-24M has extremely low-cost engines, very high time and cost expenses for preparing for a second flight, very outdated equipment, to put it mildly, and low reliability at the lowest acceptable level .... Very high labor costs for 1 hour of flight and increased requirements to airfield equipment and support .... In short, an archaic, outdated 2 + generation aircraft. It is used for hopelessness, because there are no others or not enough, and only thanks to SVP-24., Which survived and extended the life of the SU-24M, contrary to military leadership and by a lucky chance ....
      The ability to fly at low altitude is short-term and only for overcoming the air defense zone and only in manual mode ... Yes, and this mode is constantly prohibited and has a lot of restrictions, especially now when the complexes are on the extreme line of wear and you can’t talk about high-quality work in automatic mode ..

          Should I teach materiel? I worked on it for 4 years. For its time and its tasks, and its enemy air defense there was a perfectly acceptable front-line bomber ... Its main task is to defeat enemy ground targets in the operational (front) depth using nuclear weapons ...
          During the exercises in 1988 in 14VA aviation conditionally bombed Kiev, there was a scandal in air defense with organizational measures ... SU-24 broke through the defense at low altitude and conditionally destroyed protected objects ...
          It is ideally suited for this task, and now and only in this way can pi_ndos and our "God-chosen" friends be afraid of him ... And do not invent anything else ...
          By the way, the Su-24M2 is not a Su-24M with SVP-24. You are being deceived and no one except the deceivers knows their exact number ...

        None of the normal pilots will trust the life of the self-propelled gun crew at altitudes of less than 100m, have you ever flown at least once like that at a half-hour altitude and speed of 600km / h? Adrenaline kherachit bless you! Somehow they came back from the launches, I was still right-winged young, the commander on wing 65 over the town walked about 30 meters. Automation has a property- SUMMER !!! Therefore, at low altitudes, flight is only on hand. Okko correctly said in this case, an increased load on the crew !!!!!!

      childhood ... "he can", but is it necessary? talk about its capabilities, although modern tactics are different. BUT, you can approach at an extremely low altitude, outside the radar coverage area to the Goal - this is another question. In our 80s, this was rehearsed.

      What kind of stupidity will not interrupt in any way. Flying at high speed at a very low altitude, licking the folds of the relief - how are you going to detect, react, prepare a machine gun in time, deploy it, try to preempt. In a split second, he jumps out from behind a hill, while you, with your trousers, feel the machine gun - it is already closed from you by the next few hills. Do not confuse with helicopters, there the speed is different. And the flight is not a pilot controls

    This is not a PMV flight, but cheap show-offs. And about the combat use and say nothing. At such a height from the explosion of their own bombs will be destroyed. About NURSY generally not worth talking about.

    As far as I understand this, it flies on the machine, although this is a dumb business. Plain terrain facilitates flight but increases the likelihood of detection by air defense systems. As for MANPADS, the time for preparing for launch is long and if it is not in standby mode it will not even have time to shoot after it, but this rocket cannot return from the standby mode; something needs to be changed there. Alerting by radio, or maybe by a wired telephone, is possible, but if you stupidly fly along the same routes. Of course, the TOR should overwhelm such a goal if it is on duty and if it is. And for local armaments with their weapons, even the outdated Su-24M is very difficult to bring down.

    Just MANPADS are unlikely to help ... Target designation will not give you, but you will not have time to aim. And Sukhoi at a very low altitude can fly for a long time and comfortably. (By the way, the Su-34 can hardly fly comfortably at 30-40m)

    I apologize, what are some such "modern air defense systems" so effectively learning to overcome this pilot ?. Maybe in Turkey? Maybe he was going to fly to Iraq or Jordan? Do I clearly list Syrian neighbors? Is the author really sure that an antique bomber with difficulty moving at extremely low altitude will fly to Israel? Does the presence of such aircraft in Syria really worry the United States? Such planes cannot reach the "modern air defense systems" of the USA, but they are not in the reachable vicinity. The article reminds me of the holy tales for the October people about the brave border guard Karatsup and his beloved dog Hindu, how cleverly this couple detained hundreds of border violators.

    Of course, Karatsupe is far from Jewish superhuman warriors who are in batches of killing defenseless Palestinians and other Arabs. Where to him, with his dogs. By the way, during his service he had them like 5, and everyone was called Hindu (although in the press they were renamed to Ingus because of political correctness)

    Do you know how many stages and time passes until the launch of the javelin? I dont know.
    To launch from MANPADS, it is necessary to carry out certain manipulations (there is a kind of power source) and restrictions on min. there is a height.

    at tail starts? I think. in time


    Usually they are allowed into the tail, or no more than 3/4. Only you need to find the target (the engines then P, km / h translate in m / s), so near the headquarters on the stand except the slogan "direct in formation will not bend in battle ", there is " right on target".
    There is probably no manual for the Arrow or Needle, read and understand why the MANPADS operator is not ordinary, and why there is a simulator for training the operator.
    As said pr-to Shmatko "I forbid you to think."

    It is only a pity that there is nothing to replace the Su-24 with, and they are trying to remove it. The unsuccessful propagated Su-34 can do nothing of the sort.
