Aviaradars of the Russian Federation, the USA and the PRC taught to understand each other in the country of Africa

In the world, to put it mildly, there are not many countries whose air forces have in their fleet airplanes of the USA, Russia (USSR) and China, as well as military equipment of European countries. The main reason is complicated logistics, including the logistics of servicing and supplying spare parts and components. One of the countries that uses the American, Russian (Soviet) and Chinese military Aviationis Sudan.

Aviaradars of the Russian Federation, the USA and the PRC taught to understand each other in the country of Africa

The Chief of Staff of the Sudanese Air Force, Lieutenant-General Salah Abdelhalid Said, speaking at the Manama Airpower international symposium, reported that they had managed to create a single command center for signal processing from three types of radar. We are talking about radars, which are typical for use on the aircraft of the above three countries-manufacturers of aviation equipment.

General Salah Abdelhalid Said quotes DefenseNews:
Aircraft of Russian, American and Chinese production in our Air Force can exchange data with each other. Our engineers were able to adapt to both eastern and western platforms, forcing them to "understand each other." Now we have a unified surveillance system and our own communication systems.

In the Air Force of Sudan, a real kaleidoscope of aviation technology.
Russian (Soviet): MiG-29, MiG-23, Su-25, Su-24, An-12, An-26, An-30, An-32, Il-76, Mi-8 helicopters, Mi-24, etc. .

Chinese: A-5 (Q-5), FTC-2000, PT-6, JL-8 (K-8).

American: C-130.

In addition, the Sudanese air force is armed with helicopters French и German production. There are also several aircraft units from the Netherlands, Romania, Italy and Canada, including CC-115 Buffalo.

At the same time, the Sudanese general noted the problems that his country has to face in connection with the US sanctions. According to Said, the sanctions interfere with the implementation of contacts with many, including European partners, who (contacts) would allow to purchase spare parts for existing aviation assets.

Lieutenant General Said says that some of the sanctions against his country in 2017 were removed by the United States, but Sudan is still on the list of "countries-accomplices of international terrorism." Such a list was previously compiled by the US State Department. In this regard, restrictions on the supply of weapons and components for military-technical purposes.

    Looking at the list of Sudanese aviation, it immediately becomes clear who supplied the planes and helicopters "for free". smile

      Understood - incomprehensible ...

      An interesting statement by the Sudanese general about Sudanese engineering - our intelligence, I hope, is not asleep ...

      Although judging by the list of transferred equipment in the old-time wars - he’s just sleeping!

      The author is well done - everywhere he noted that the "Soviet" or "USSR", this is me to the fact that yesterday the Soviet project was once again actively discussed here - and so I want to note for all skeptics - Russia has been almost 28 years old, and she he still flies into space, just flies on the safety margin that was laid in the USSR and half of the world flies, and those glorious 15 republics still tirelessly de-communize their past, but still can't get to the glorious capitalist tomorrow! laughing

      What does a freebie have to do with it? Supplies certainly pursued specific goals. I realized there was a recognition problem, a stranger. Aviators will enlighten if I'm wrong.

      Sanctions that the United States, like a sower with a broad hand, spreads around the world, a good chance for Russian companies (and not only in the military-industrial complex) to gain a foothold in world markets. In this we have the main competitor, yellow rabbits, since Europeans usually obediently join the sanctions of their overseas master

      The USSR did not supply anything for free. Only for long-term loans, with deferred payments, but by the year 92 as soon as the question of repaying debts arose, the former republics jumped up and demanded their share from creditors and the question hung up, because they sent it to someone to pay. For this it was easier to write off.

    And they would only buy in Russia and would not have to rack their brains and spend money.

      And in Sudan, palm oil is also produced?

        Not. But Sudan is selling its army. For example now. The Saudis pay money to Sudan + pay salaries and maintenance to soldiers, in exchange the Sudanese are fighting in Yemen. Moreover, even Su-24 dragged.

        And not just like - they are fighting, but naturally in assault squads, always getting into meat.
