Anti-submarine Tu-142 conducted exercises in the Mediterranean


Anti-submarine aircraft Tu-142, taking off from one of the airfields in the territory of the Russian Federation, have worked out the tasks of finding, detecting, classifying submarines in the south-eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea
- noted in the message.

According to the Ministry of Defense, "in the designated area, the crews of the aircraft conducted training on the integrated use of radar and hydroacoustic buoys, as well as on receiving and analyzing the information transmitted by them."

All tasks were carried out in close cooperation with the ships of the Permanent operational connection of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean
- said in a statement.

    Su-30 in Syria based? A good splinter for NATO.

      More interestingly, that 142 went through Iran or Turkey passes?

        The Turks are unlikely to miss, but still no, but NATO. Most likely along the same route as the Tu-22: Mozdok-Iran-Iraq-Syria.

            There are two gas stations in the air needed. And then the fuel will be at the limit, especially in the Mediterranean you won’t spin. Ours, at one time, flew in search of the Sond spacecraft to the Indian Ocean from Engels with a passing refueling. And then some had on the way back to sit on spare (Tashkent) for the remaining fuel. Both reds burned.

    Russia seems to be preparing to defend Syria from a missile attack by a mattress. The abscess continues to brew, if only it would not break through.

      Egorovich .....Russia seems to be preparing to defend Syria from a missile attack by a mattress.

      Brewing! The Americans concentrated everything they needed and prepared a provocation with a "chemical attack" to strike at Syria. What the whole world was informed about. But suddenly, over the northeastern part of the Mediterranean Sea, GPS began to work unstably. This was noted not only by civilian armed forces, but also by the military. The media has appeared infa about the appearance in Syria of two Mi-8 helicopters of the Lever system and other electronic warfare systems. Now the Americans about the strike on Syria, not a word.

    It is high time for the Tu-142 to modernize the equipment and of course, we need a new carrier, more economical, long-range and quiet, otherwise the noise of the 142 propellers is detected by the submarine before the mark appears on the radar ....

      The times were gone when the hearing aid aircraft detected them. On radars, they are lit much earlier.

        They are flooded by a command or after a working time. And if they soprut ... well, they’ll take it apart for metal, hand over it, enough of a couple of boxes of whiskey. There is nothing secret there.

      Almost all buoys after they work out self-flood, there are buoys that still have a tamper-proof system. This is a buoy group operating in actively passive modes. This is not the first time the Tu-142 with the SF has been flying for the first time.

    Actually, this is a common practice - quickly squeeze out the discarded buoy and turn off the hydrophone. Once, in the North Sea, the Dutch accused us of having stolen from them an experimental RSLB that had been dropped from Orion. The most annoying thing is that we did not have time to do this - the Dutch confused something and the buoy immediately sank. However, they sent a note to the Foreign Ministry. But they were sent too ....

      Hehehehe ... I immediately remembered the story of uv. Oleg Rykov AKA Navalbro from the Charlie-Charlie-Bravo series - how they almost stole a target from the Harpoon base with Point Mugu. But they were agitated that at first they had forgotten about the marker paint flowing from the target, and then they gave a move before the rocket’s beacon was turned off. The movement of the mark was noticed on the shore and sent for the CER detachment led by the KR "Legi" - the same one that had previously fired at the firing range. Given the fact that the detachment was deployed when they were already entering the base, simultaneously banning the entrance to the base until the target was returned, as well as the fact that it was Friday night - the Americans were in a very fighting mood. smile
      “Charlie, do you have a target?”
      - “Lay down,” the question did not understand.
      “Yesterday she splashed down at your side.” Have you seen her?
      - Seen it! So what?
      - You took?
      - No. She drifted away from us by ... hmm ... to the side. But did the helicopter pilots drown her?
      - Thanks for the help! “Admiral” grittedly gritted his teeth through his teeth.
      And then the greatest demaskrator of all time turned on - the Sun, dispersing the remnants of the haze and brightly illuminating the stern of "Charlie", the left part of which was not ball-shaped, but poisonous green in color. "Rybkina blood" spattered!
      “Charlie, please return the American property,” the cruiser perked up.
      “Lie down, I can't hear you.” The planes are noisy. Repeat the syllables.
      Oh miracle! The Vikings turned south and flew away to no longer appear.
      - Soviet ship, I repeat! Give the target!
