Now MiG-27. In the Indian Air Force another plane crash

According to the Indian Ministry of Defense, the MiG-27 aircraft performed a scheduled flight. Taking off from the territory of a military base near the city of Jodhpur, the fighter after some time fell and caught fire. Over the crash site, according to eyewitnesses, you can see columns of thick smoke. The fighter pilot safely ejected; nothing threatened the life and health of the pilot. Civilian casualties were avoided.

According to the statement of the official representative of the military department of India, Colonel Sombit Gosh, the causes of the crash of the MiG-27 fighter aircraft of the Indian Air Force are currently unknown, a thorough investigation of the incident will be conducted.

    Yeah ... It’s not clear to me, India selects the 5th generation aircraft, but flies on the MiG-27 ... There are no spare parts for it already. It’s good that our ejection seats with 10-fold reliability saved the pilot as well .. God forbid or whoever they fly with them further

      The pilot is alive - good. And the technique is clearly worn out.

      Here, too, I am surprised about spare parts ... Either they are engaged in "cannibalism", or ours help in servicing from storage bases (if we still have such types in storage ... which I doubt)
      And of course KM 1M, this is not K 36 DM, but also reliable ...
      And I hope everything is fine with a pilot with a back ...

      They were offered in the 90s to upgrade the MiG-21/23. The Indians did not want to ...
      In 2003, Salyut made a full-size prototype AL-31F of the 30C series for installation on the MiG-27M, and before the end of the year it was rolled into a prototype airplane. Improvements to the power elements of the airframe required minimal. Then three more motors were assembled for various kinds of tests. Flight tests of the upgraded MiG-27M No. 115 were carried out from December 20, 2007 to February 18, 2008. Oleg Vasilievich Antonovich, Honored Test Pilot Hero of Russia, completed ten flights with the engine running for about ten and a half hours. Tests have demonstrated the performance of aircraft systems in all modes, with a climb of 11400 meters, reaching maximum speeds, as well as maneuvering with angles of attack of up to 22 degrees. The measured kilometer expenses showed an improvement of 18–20%. Due to the increased thrust-to-weight ratio and maneuverability, the estimated effectiveness in fulfilling the calculated combat missions grows by 22–27%.

      MiG-27M No. 115 can be used as an experimental prototype for further improvement of the basic design. It makes sense to remake the air intakes to reduce visibility and greater flow, which will further reveal the benefits of the AL-31F (it requires 10% more air than the R-29B-300). This gives hope that the revised MiG will be able to develop supersonic speed at the nominal operating mode of the power plant (the so-called “super-cruising mode”) The on-board complex of the upgraded MiG-27 may include a special version of the Platan sighting system with the Su-34 (or the modern version “ Kaira "), which promises to turn it into a high-precision strike aircraft, The revision project was proposed by the Defense Avionics Research Establishment (DARE) - a branch of the state research structure DRDO of the Indian Ministry of Defense. It consisted in replacing about 60% of the original on-board systems with new ones, mainly of local design. Involving the Indian industry in the development of a more advanced sighting and navigation system MiG-27 will cover offset obligations, which in recent Indian tenders reach 60% or more.

      In short, a modernized MiG-27 can be very attractive by the criterion of "cost / effectiveness" and have a significantly lower cost than a heavier twin-engine MiG-35

        And this moment is not one of these:
        Initially, 50 machines were assembled at the HAL plant in the city of Nasik from Soviet units, and in 1988 the production of the MiG-27ML began, all units of which were already manufactured by the local industry. In India, the planes received their own name "Bahadur" (translated as "Brave"). Their production continued until 1996 and ended with the release of the 150th MiG-27ML. The pace of production in India was slightly inferior to ours, but the assembly depended on the receipt of some domestic components (equipment, apparatus and system units), which slowed down with the onset of the economic crisis. For the entire 1994, the plant produced only one MiG-27ML out of 17 planned, and even that technical commission refused to accept it due to many defects caused by poor build quality.

      First, not the helm, but RUS.
      And not a gasket, but a pilot.
      What did you want to say?

        Well, to you, who saw God better know the helm or the RUS, I served in the Strategic Missile Forces, but I wanted to say how the Indians were with the equipment for you and stayed. Although an ancient people with a rich history, the colonization by England drove them to the brains in the last century ..

    That's okay. In the Indian Air Force, as well as in their entire army, used vehicles from many countries, including and outdated therefore happens.

    How would I advise - Around the complex equipment, you don’t need to dance, but to breed any demagogy, but to serve efficiently .... at the same time, the flight personnel, ground-based train accordingly !. -
    However, this can be safely attributed to everyone! Everything is the same, only the dances are different.

    Accidents happen. Relative safety performance is important. For analysis, you need to publish statistics: total raid and the number of aircraft lost. The reliability of the equipment (PrNK) was rather low, but this issue could be resolved by modernization. In fact, the plane itself is pretty safe. It was. But almost fifty years have passed since the release.
