Crews of transport Il-76MD worked bombing and firing of air cannons


In the Tver region, the IL-76MD military transport aviation crews worked out a unique task for a kind of aviation - practical bombing at the test site. Thus, the VTA pilots mimic the discharge of day and night lighting aviation bombs to indicate the aiming point and the subsequent landing. In addition, the crews of the Aerospace Force worked out firing of stern aircraft guns at ground targets, which designated lightly armored and automotive equipment of the enemy
- Reported in the military.

The Defense Ministry said that the flights took place at altitudes from 400 to 600 meters and at speeds above 500 km / h at low temperatures.

The flight crews of the aviation units of the military aviation aviation stationed in the Tver, Pskov, Rostov, and Orenburg regions, including young pilots, took part in the flights. More than 10 Il-76MD aircraft were involved in the flights.

      Well, they can probably be inside, like on the An-12

          The minimum caliber of stacked bombs is 100 kg, the maximum 500 kg, including sea mines on the TG-12 MV, 72 pieces of 100 kg of bombs are stacked. On the plane AN-12 BK. loaded with a total weight of up to 10 tons of bombs. In 15 seconds, in the SERIES mode, a 2-kilometer section is covered. Actually carpet bombing

    Let our pilots have such skills. Perhaps we will also have our own “ganship” on the savannah to “work” so that the “mattresses” do not stray into the herds.

    Hmm ... Only guerrillas can be bombarded with these airplanes, on squares and from above .... Still, they should be used as a bomber ...... However, sometimes life doesn’t make such fortels to throw out ....

      Somehow, I had to participate in the exercises where the AN-12 BK aircraft bombed first with single bombs and then with a series, and also observed firing from aft installations from AM-23 cannons, and they did not know the air arrows for ground targets. What was the surprise of the leaders of the exercise that all targets in both bombing and firing from aft installations were destroyed from the first run.

    Great. only for whom can it be applied? From that height. For partisans armed only with riflemen. What is the government preparing for?

    All this is very interesting, only here the flight altitude of 0 m is about nothing-the area of ​​MANPADS, and they will add Zushki.
