MiG-31 intercepted cruise missiles over Kamchatka

28
Military training was held in Kamchatka involving fighter aviation Pacific fleet. The exercise was conducted as part of the combat readiness verification of the air defense forces. The air defense forces of the Pacific Fleet in the Kamchatka Territory reflected a conditional strike by cruise missiles at the Kamchatka Kura firing range.


Press office Eastern Military District reports:
The supersonic strategic bomber-missile carrier Tu-160 of the long-range aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces, which launched its cruise missiles at the Kura range, acted as the enemy. To repel a massive rocket attack on an alert, crews of all-weather naval aviation MiG-31 fighters deployed in the Kamchatka region were raised by crews of all-weather MiG-XNUMX interceptor fighters.


The press service of the district says that the fighter-interceptors successfully coped with the task. All targets were discovered, captured and successfully destroyed using air-to-air missiles.

MiG-31 intercepted cruise missiles over Kamchatka


Previously, the pilots on the MiG-31 worked out measures to intercept missiles in the lower stratosphere. The conventional target for each crew of the MiG-31 was moving at a speed of about 800 km / h. The distance to destroy the rocket was about 120 km. Interceptor fighters operated at an altitude of about 15 thousand meters at speeds above 2,5 thousand km / h.

      Well done, of course, it’s difficult to bring down the cr, if you still take the element of surprise, the camouflage of the rocket against the background of the earth is much more difficult than at the exercise, where the area of ​​the cr ...

        What is difficult to bring down the Kyrgyz Republic? Does it fly at space speeds? Does it maneuver with an overload of 20g?
        does she have EW like a Death Star?
        it’s just a piece of iron that slowly flies in a straight line and represents the simplest goal.
        the only thing in combat Saves the KR is a low altitude. when it’s hard to detect. but it’s in combat conditions, when the enemy’s KR fly at low altitudes, and not like that
        Previously, pilots on the MiG-31 practiced measures to intercept missiles in the lower layers of the stratosphere.

        In past exercises, they also shot down slowly flying non-maneuvering targets at high altitude.
        although if they didn’t work on missiles at targets, but on conditional missiles, then xs. there may be something else.

          The information is not enough, we can guess as many as you like and that's right, the main message has been trained, and who will tell us the details.

            Well, the fact that they flew on real airplanes is definitely a plus, not simulators and already good.

          Yes, actually the other day the news slipped, about launching from one Tu 160, 12 KR on the Kura ....
          And if the guys discovered and intercepted all 12, then the BEAUTYES were intended ....
          And I wonder how many boards were raised for this.

    The main thing in the air defense system is to detect cruise missiles in time. And then we get, as always, "Aviation - reward, ZRV - to cheer, and RTV - not to punish."

      You’ll punish them here. How will they begin by rewarding the number of times. It will not seem a little

    Air defense forces of the Pacific Fleet in the Kamchatka Territory reflected a conditional strike
    All targets were discovered, captured and successfully destroyed with the use of air-to-air missiles.

    So all the same, were real or conditional?

      Earlier, at the x55 missile launches, at the Sary-Shagan test site, the operation of all missile systems, telemetry was checked and, as a result, the missile was destroyed as a target by a link of air defense fighter jets; .

    Here is most likely an unsuccessful edition. During the interception of the Kyrgyz Republic, fighters were unlikely to operate at an altitude of 15 thousand meters and at a speed of 2,5 thousand km / h. At least not at the time of interception. Can they be moved to the interception area at such a speed and at such a height?

      When attacking at maximum ranges (more than 100 km), these are quite normal conditions. Firstly, the minimum time to reach the border. Secondly, the approach speed is high, even when attacking the rear hemisphere, ideal conditions for the Doppler radar filter and target selection on the background of the earth.

        Well, I just strongly doubt that from an altitude of 15 km and at a distance of 120 km, the MiG-31 is able to detect a cruise missile with an EPR less than 1m2 flying at an altitude of 50 meters. Too fantastic data, even for its magnificent radar, because even more modern fighter radars do not yet know this. Therefore, the description of the episode about altitude and speed is most likely not about the interception of the Kyrgyz Republic, but about the interception of the Tu-160 itself.
        For the MiG-31, the network came across fairly plausible data on the “capture” of the RS from an altitude of 6 km at a distance of 20 km.

          From open sources, Zaslon-M radar can detect targets at ranges of up to 400 km with an EPR of 20 m². It is easy to calculate that with an EPR of 1 m², the range will decrease by the fourth root of 20, i.e. about 190 km. The ability to attack targets against the background of the earth at high speeds and altitudes in the MiG-31 was laid from the very beginning, the main thing is that the target in the sector 70 to 60 degrees. That is why these types of aircraft are easily aimed at long range. It’s very difficult to correctly direct these aircraft at short distances of 10–20 km, the pilot and navigator must be a sniper class, and the navigator on the ground should have extensive experience, even when working in ACS.

            Googled. This was written about a certain modified “Barrier”, which was tested in the 90, which from the factory could only be on the piece “B”, and could go to the “without letter” only during modernization. Painfully cool numbers, almost like the A-50 with its energy-intensive "Bumblebee". 31s of course have been modified lately, in particular, several “DZ” (or “BM”) have recently flown to us - but there are only a few of them. Well maybe, maybe ...
            According to the basic "Barrier", the open info speaks about 200 km with the EPR 20 m2. Which, according to the same calculations, will give us only 1 km of range for a target with 2m90. This is in ideal conditions of course. That is, without taking into account the fact that the target flies near the ground itself, where sometimes the terrain hinders its clear detection, and reflected interference from the ground can also reduce the range of sustainable detection.
            Figs knows. Maybe the modernized DZ or BM have been kicked out for these exercises, which have higher capabilities.

              Actually, in my day, some similar exercises were conducted with the MiG-31 in the Arctic. Now it’s just hard to remember a year.
              What we had - Tu-95 MS launched 4 CR X-55 on Pemboy. The MiG-31s ​​knew about the launch time and, accordingly, they kept the aircraft themselves on the “sights”.
              What did they have in the end? Two missiles were hit, two were lost by interceptors and safely reached the landfill.
              This is the question of the superpowers of the MiG-31 locators.

              A bit wrong ...
              On MiG 31B there was an ordinary Barrier, and there were not a few of them, for example, a whole 3 squadron regiment in Pravdinsk ...
              There were Mig 31DZ at the same time, the same screen. And there were simple Mig 31, with the same barrier.
              And Barrier M is already being put on the upgraded MiG 31 BM and BSM.
              As far as I know, in Yelizovo there are ancient sides ... And if the sailors podsuetsya with modernization, then they will have BSM, with Barrier M on it.

                Well, you know better there in Nizhny Novgorod, you have a factory))) I won’t let me go inside the planes, I only see them in the sky, but when at the airport. I see that they appeared with refueling rods, "DZ". And what kind of radar is not visible from the outside)))

    What is the difficulty of interception at altitudes of 10-20 km?
    The lower layers of the stratosphere ....

    Interestingly, what was considered a massive use of CR? Did the TU-160 produce at least 10 pieces, and even on different routes? True, considering how much one KR costs - the exercises would have come out a pretty penny ... But experience would have given a hoo!

      Tu-160 "bombed" in full - all 12 missiles were gone. Before each drop, each mission has its own mission: flight route, altitude, correction zone, etc.

      Something did not hear about the possibility of intercepting the MiG 31, ballistic missiles.
