Anti-submarine aircraft IL-38H "Novella" will patrol the Northern Sea Route

The Northern Sea Route will be daily patrolled by IL-38N Novella anti-submarine aircraft. Three aviation regiment of the Pacific and Northern fleets. This was reported by Izvestia with reference to the General Staff of the Russian Navy.


Anti-submarine aircraft IL-38H "Novella" will patrol the Northern Sea Route


Anti-submarine aircraft IL-38 Novella, consisting of two mixed Pacific Fleet combined regiments with deployment in Kamchatka and Primorye, as well as the North Air Base fleet, step on the daily patrol of the Northern Sea Route. Aircraft will keep under control the actions of surface ships and submarines located next to the most important northern sea road.

The decision was taken at the beginning of this year. Previously with the crews of IL-38H conducted relevant exercises.

As explained in the Ministry of Defense, anti-submarine Il-38H "Novella" have powerful complexes of optical-electronic and radio intelligence and are able to detect targets at a considerable distance. They will supply the received information to troops, besides they can pursue submarines and put a minefield.

The Novella electronic complex, installed during the modernization of the IL-38 aircraft, makes it possible to increase the efficiency of search and detection of submarines four times and has the capabilities of conducting reconnaissance and issuing target designation. An aircraft with the help of a new search and sighting system can confidently find submarines and destroy them, moreover with the use of an expanded (compared to the base Il-38) nomenclature of armaments. The aircraft can carry up to 9 tons of weapons, including torpedoes and land-based aerial bombs designed to target other aircraft.

Modernization of the Il-38 aircraft to the level of the Il-38H "Novella" is carried out from 2012, by JSC "Aviation Complex named after S. Ilyushin".

      It is a pity the Americans, fearing to disgrace themselves in the event of a breakdown of the only 40-year-old icebreaker, did not send him on the NSR. So it would be our anti-submarine flyers on whom to practice. smile

          In 1991, after the collapse of the USSR, the Northern Sea Route was opened for international shipping.
          Since 2019, the passage of foreign warships along the Northern Sea Route is carried out only after notification to the authorities of the Russian Federation

              absolutely right .. I already wrote here in the comments to the article about the pace of shipbuilding in the PRC .. We cannot oppose anything to any country that wants to drive ships in the Arctic .. Even if a certain ship enters our territorial waters .. - there is no one there to chase and inspect him .. I remember one remarkable case in the last years of the USSR .. a certain "yachtsman" was accidentally discovered by an ordinary dry cargo ship just in the Dikson area .. That is, he safely passed from Norway to the Kara Sea, past all our naval bases, border guards , airplanes ... This gentleman's yacht was packed with radio electronics to the eyeballs, and the most interesting thing is that in general (according to him) there were two of them in the crew .. But his partner went ashore .. On our shore .. If this happened in those years when the shipping along the NSR was very busy, not like in the current times .. And yet - the yacht was not noticed. What about submarines?

          Shallow water and the ocean liner need to stay away from the coast, therefore the NSR does not always pass in the territorial waters of Russia.
          And only the submarines of our "partners" will be able to attack them there. Therefore, the mandatory patrolling of anti-submarine aircraft.

            shallow water is 30 meters? 45? The route for the caravan to be transported along the NSR is interpreted simply - it is laid depending on the ice situation. They try to lead the caravan over clear water. The Arctic Arctic is certainly smaller than the Pacific Ocean, but the depths in it are quite navigable in the coastal zone ..

          narrow coastal strip of territorial waters
          and the Northern Sea Route is not a path, but a direction. It is possible to build in such a way that you won’t get out of territorial waters, but with large tonnage they most likely regularly go into neutral waters.

            magnetometer - a very frivolous thing against modern submarines, with reduced margins. The principal drawback of the magnetometer is the extremely short detection range. Magnetic anomalies quickly smooth out with distance. To determine the presence of an anomaly, it is required to walk from it in less than 1 (!) Mile - that is, almost directly above the boat. In simple terms, it’s easier to find a needle in a haystack with a magnet than a submarine in the sea with a magnetometer.

            Well, buoys - the most effective tool for this day - you can throw right on the ice)) They will work very effectively))

        For several years, the US Navy has been very active in studying and mapping the bottom under the very ice ... without summer holidays. And we can only smile stupidly at their small shoals with such a large-scale work. Until they need icebreakers, they do everything with submarines. There it is necessary not three consolidated regiments, but an air army, and then there will not be enough forces and means to at least just track the activities of everything that now walks and swims. There now the movement is already unreal. The PRC already has a base on Svalbard, for example ...

          Theirs Poseidon cannot detect our Poseidon - the range of the first magnetometer (1 km) is less than the depth of the second (1,4 km), not to mention the low magnitude of Poseidon's magnetic field (700 times less than the Yasen nuclear submarine).

    SMP - not ter. waters (it's 12 miles from the coastline). It passes through our exclusive economic zone.


    not quite right. Part of the NSR passes in Russian territorial waters and part in our economic zone. Therefore, to do as the West wants and not only it, the NSR will not work out internationally.
    The NSR, even with the collapse of the USSR, did not have an international status, simply because of the lack of funds for maintaining the army at that time, there was a passage yard there, and everyone was lazy through the territorial waters of Russia.

    Considering the fact that has already been practically approved at the level of UN experts, Russia's applications for the expansion of its territories in the Arctic will run the NSR completely in the territorial waters of Russia.

    From time immemorial to the present, the territory of the country is that territory which the army of this country is able to defend and retain.
    In the Arctic, showing determination to defend their interests not in words but in practice, Russia is doing everything right.

    but with a large tonnage, they most likely regularly go neutral.


    of course it is possible, but the neutral ones are neatly shackled with such ice that no icebreakers can do it.

    it is enough to throw buoys in the waters of the NSR to find the submarines scurrying next to it under the ice.

    Hmm-ah, they wrote ... At the airbase of the Northern Fleet, skoka-skoka there are only Il-38Ns, which can take to the air? 5, or already 6? You cannot cover the Barents Sea from Severomorsk-1 with such forces, and given the weather on Kola ... There should be 20-30 pieces of them on Kola (ideally, at 2-3 airfields), but in Katunino there are 12 pieces, and in Pechora or Vorkuta the same number, but there are 4 pieces in Belushka. You look - the Barents Sea and the White Sea can be covered. And beyond the Barents Sea is the Kara Sea. In Norilsk there are IL-38N, skoka, 0? ... Maybe in Tiksi or Cape Schmidt? ... From the Pacific Fleet airfields, it seems, by the number of planes, just to cover the strategists' exit from Velyuchinsk ... About "Orions" "they have already written, but we have: no planes, no airfields, no pilots, no technicians. Press services with real colonels - hurray !!! yes, there are political officers again, but there is an Orthodox church in a country where everyone in the Armed Forces is building ... it's sad ...

      In addition to IL 38, there are several dozens of PLO Ka 27, Mi 14 helicopters and Tu 142 aircraft, of course, all ships and submarines - anti-submarine defense and search, should be comprehensive - and not individually.

        How much I read your comments, I constantly observe the same picture. You are constantly trying to justify the frankly disgusting state of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, by any arguments up to frankly delusional. What are the KA-27 PLO? You open the NSR map. What are MI-14? 6 million square kilometers there. How many TU 142 do we have? And how much is needed to somehow control the situation?

          What is enough for searching and detecting submarines - they will soon create combat airbags and a function: patrolling, detecting and destroying submarines, mines and other airbags, give them all in bulk - it will be cheaper than buying helicopters and planes in tens and hundreds - all the more so Arctic ice, from them there is no use in terms of PLO.

    Listen, isn’t it easier to locate stationary tracking stations on the Arctic islands? Well, or under water? Otherwise, all this looks like such a fiction .. Simply, for a tick and a report on dizzying successes in improving defense capability .. What, flying once a day (or once every two days), the board will be able to find something on such a vast territory under two-meter ice? After a month of such patrolling, the route and flight schedule will be known to every commander of an American submarine ..
