Air combat master: Su-30 solved several tasks in Syria

7
Su-30 is one of the most recognizable Russian aircraft. Being a deep modernization of the legendary Su-27, this machine has become largely revolutionary. First of all, it concerns its combat effectiveness, taking into account its low cost.


Su-30CM fighters in Syria made it possible to solve several tasks at once. They destroyed the terrorists on the ground, defended Hmeymim's base from a possible air attack, covered the bombers and attack aircraft during combat missions.

After the Syrian campaign, which made the best ad Russian armsdemand for domestic aviation products soared. The first buyer of the Su-30SM was neighboring Kazakhstan. In the coming years, the fleet of these aircraft in the country's air force will be 24 units. Another 12 fighters ordered Belarus. In total, nearly 500 aircraft of this type should go for export to different countries.

    I respect Simonov and his romance very much, a good romance. And the hero, brigade commander Serpilin, is a very interesting character and not only because brigade commander ... But in the 90s and subsequent years, all the "progressive" paper-scribe writers and wretched screenwriters "spawned the brigade brigades in the Great Patriotic War that there wasn’t so much in the Red Army before the war ... Like: Simonov had a brigade commander, but I’m red. But there the writer put his heart and soul into a novel ... And today, it seems, they write and film just for that so that the next Kohl-s-Urengoy does not bother, but with their "masterpiece" directly into the Bundestag and trampled.

    SU-30SM is a wonderful fighter-bomber. Only in addition to the TTX of the customers is its price very pleased, taking into account what it can do with it.

    After the Syrian campaign, which made the best advertisement for Russian weapons, demand for domestic aviation products skyrocketed.
    Actually, this aircraft was designed for India, and the tuev hucha is in service with India.
    Since sclerosis doesn’t change me, some of our combatant pilots (not simple, but not test) flew on it for the first time: "I got out in deep thought with the question - why is this car not with us?"
    And only after that the Moscow Region suddenly became sharply interested in this machine.
    Yes, the car is wonderful.
    Yes, this is a deep modernization of the SU-27.
    Yes, she (which is unusual for us) is double. (Indian for sure. From the principle I do not google, just from memory)
    But, it was not created for our Air Force. On order. And only already released for the Indians came to us.

      More precisely, she was shoved into the Air Force. For this case, Sukhoi Design Bureau ordered a comparative analysis of the combat effectiveness of the Su-30 at GosNIIAS. Those gave efficiency figures of 0,97 to the F-22 and 1,75 to the F-35. How to leave your Air Force without such a miracle plane?
      But why then was it to develop the Su-35 and Su-57?
      Just a "comparison" was carried out already on the 3rd !!! parameters for the aircraft and 10 parameters for weapons.
