MiG-25RB remains in the ranks of the Syrian Air Force

43
The Syrian Air Force currently has about forty record-breaking MiG-25 aircraft, which are capable of speeds of 3000 km / h, writes Messenger of Mordovia.




"Foxbat -" flying fox "does not very often rise into the sky. As the pilots say, “for the last time” they were involved somewhere around a month ago, during an Israeli raid on Syria, ”the article by Dmitry Lemeshko says.

He notes that the planes apparently “failed to hit a single target, but the fact that the“ twenty-fifths ”climbed into the sky caused a great resonance - for many it was a revelation that these planes are still in service.”

But last month they talked about MiG-25PD interceptors, and the SAR Air Force has another "secret and, at the same time, more dangerous for opponents modification - MiG-25РБ, which can be not only a high-speed reconnaissance aircraft, but also a bomber" writes the author.

Despite its venerable age, the characteristics of this aircraft are impressive: it can accelerate to Mach 2,83 and carry 8 five hundred kilograms bombs, which are automatically dropped at a given point.

Judging by the rare photos appearing on the Internet, the Syrians are carefully monitoring this technique, and if necessary, the MiG-25 will be able to accomplish all the tasks assigned to them, the publication concludes.

              Letters, letters after numbers indicate. In aviation, this is important. Vezdelyub, Christmas trees, sticks. Tachela was not bad, frankly, it was, only this sneaker is outdated, and the potential for modernization has been exhausted.

      The MiG-25 is hopelessly outdated. And as an interceptor and as a scout and as a bomber.
      It’s too expensive to use against the Basmachis, and it’s ineffective against Israel - the current F-16 and F-15 have radars with a longer detection range and longer-range missiles, and high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft or bomber will not miss air defense.

        Come on . Using a front-line bomber to use it is a perversion, a reconnaissance is so stupid for me, but like an interceptor it’s his element. Glider gut, gut podshamanit. MIG-25 is not in the landfill. 3Maha is not a joke, not a single pepelats in the world gives so much. So I understand that we have written them off because of the 31s, they are more effective because, at least, the speed is lower.

      Only because they managed to save the MiG-25, Syrian technicians and pilots can be proud of. And after a normal repair, of course without the Russian Aerospace Forces, it would not have been possible to do, the characteristics of the MiG-25 are not inferior to the MiG-31. It is a pity that the ground infrastructure of the guidance points in Syria was not restored normally, otherwise they would have failed a single F-16 long ago.

        You please do not repeat this out loud. Although -31 grew from -25, comparing their combat capabilities is simply not wise.

      It seems to me that the phrase is about 8 five hundred kilogram bombs that are automatically reset at a given point refers specifically to the MiG-25RB. For which this mode of operation is regular - it was originally made as a reconnaissance bomber.

        MiG-25RB was successfully used by Iraq during the Iran-Iraq war without losses. But since then, so much water has flowed that it is difficult to imagine which theater it could be successfully used in our days.

    In the Monograph about the MiG-25 RB I read that for them there are 500kg FAB-500T bombs with a heat-resistant coating and when dropped at a speed of about 2M and a height of 10-12km they fly another 100km (?) .. if you add glonas guidance and a wing for planning, you get a very interesting weapon.

      In Syria, for the use of MiG-25RB guided bombs (which he does not have), without entering the neighbors air defense zone, there is not enough space.

    - 1986 g. - in service with 20 copies. MiG-25;
    - 1991 g. - for all the time delivered 8 copies. MiG-25RB (including RBC) and 30 copies. MiG-25PD;

        Well, I don’t know, most likely they knew how to eliminate this ...
        and even with the 70's, it seems, they began to massively use airplanes with "unstable aerodynamics."
        In extreme cases, the front planes can always be attached (as was later added to the Tu-144).

          Second ears and an elephant from behind can be attached so that he does not turn once again. Along the way, there should be tanks under the pilot seats, and all the luggage immediately behind the cockpit.
          But the inscription "Aeroflot" looks impressive good .
          Whether it will still be when the TU-160 passenger is muddied, yes. Although Putin is insidious, and the "hundred" of Sukhoi (T-4, it seems) can be reanimated. In general, there will be a BOMB, this person will become, I won’t be surprised. Well then, everything is for people.

    It is doubtful that even a stick once in a lifetime can fire. Another thing is that the consequences would be the same as with the loss of the last F16, namely, once every 20 years, after which most of the southern batteries of Syrian air defense are consumed for one. In the case of the MiG-25, everything could have been much worse and another war would have flared up in which Israel would become a full-scale participant in the Syrian conflict. It’s still fortunate that the super-moderate Netanyahu is now in power.

    The facts are very simple. After the Israelis were shown who was boss in the sky of Syria, they were so frightened that they lifted a much larger number of planes into the sky of Syria, on which neither the air defense, nor for some reason suddenly recalled the MiG-25. These are facts, albeit indirect ones. wink Confessions of something from Syria there cannot be equipment there, in view of the contradiction of the very encyclopedic interpretation of the word "fact" and the concept of "Syrians recognized." But many Russian participants in the Moscow Region simply prefer not to recognize this solely for ideological reasons. lol
