American reporters say they want to see on MAX-2019

20
The Aviationist sends a group of American correspondents to cover the MAKS-2019 air show, which will be held in the Russian Federation in September this year. Thanks to this, the specified Western publication hopes to collect solid material covering Russian military equipment.




Why is MAX interesting? Everything is very simple: after all, this is probably the only event where you can see all the latest Russian cars in operation.

- writes The Aviationist.

According to him, this air show is primarily a trade show on the site of which sales agreements are drawn up. However, Moscow’s desire for marketing allows outside observers to evaluate the capabilities of its technology.

This is an incredible opportunity. When I was a boy, all we had was grainy black and white photographs of Russian airplanes in the Janes airplanes directory. For us, coming from the USA, these are the most exotic and alluring military vehicles.

- said 57-year-old Tom Demerli, a former pilot, who is sent to cover the exhibition.

Su-57 on “MAX-2019” will be presented for the first time in the format of not only flight, but also a static exposure.

In addition to various types of Russian weapons (Mi-28NE, Ka-52, Su-35С, Su-30СМ, Yak-130, Il-112В, Mi-17Ш, Mi-17В-5), journalists also hope to see Chinese equipment: by unconfirmed rumor has it that China may leave some of the aircraft participating in Aviadarts to display.

      And when there was an alternative Russian (Soviet) civilization, our aircraft in design were certainly radically different, and civilian versions too. It was like seeing alien technology, like their technology for us. Today is a complete unification. Only the military is still different. It is neither good nor bad. Just thoughts.

    Let them come and see. This is, after all, a global practice. We also have OS Samoilovich, at one time, with a camera in Le Bourget just under the very belly to the F-111 did not climb, despite its secrecy.

      It became risky to exhibit our planes abroad ... there is always the risk of arresting them for some kind of lawsuit, the hell knows what adventurers.

        Yes, these things need to be taken very seriously. Especially now Ukraine has won something there in The Hague. It is clear that we do not recognize the decision of the Hague court, but there is someone who recognizes. So we need to exhibit our military equipment very carefully. Guarantees of immunity from organizers, insurance, etc.

    But, probably, thanks to him, the crew placement scheme was implemented on the SU-24.

          And for what shortcomings did the Americans write off him so quickly? On the Su-24th they got around?

            Why fast? The F-111 has been in service with the United States since the late 60s. 30+ years of service is not so little. Like an aircraft of its generation, it had no more shortcomings than others. And planes are written off in the States not because they have "shortcomings", but because: the concept of their use has changed, it is morally outdated, the cost of modernization has increased. This is not an isolated example, by the way, the B-58 and F-14 left the scene just as early. And, as for the Su-24, read how it was tested, which, by the way, it did not pass to the end. And there was simply nothing to replace it with until the Su-34 went into production. So no one and no one "bypassed".

              Here is the F-14! There is a thought that variable sweep is initially more a disadvantage than an advantage. But Samoylovich about whom you remembered exactly that impressed.

                So the mid-60s, whatever you want, it was the most fashionable direction in the development of combat aviation! They tried to design all the planes of that time as planes with KIG. In the States, these are: F-111, F-14, B-1. We have these: Su-17, Su-24, MiG-23, Tu-22M. For the French: "Mirage G". The European consortium "Panavia", although it was created a little later, but there the idea with KIG also received its continuation and, as a result, "Tornado".

                  So I thought, since the Su-24, MiG-23 and Tu-22M are still flying, unlike the f-111 and f-14, maybe ours managed to make this mechanism more successful?

                    This is not the point at all, the mechanisms of all aircraft are approximately identical. The states, by the way, are going to "retire" the B-1B soon, and the B-52 are going to extend the service life for the devil only knows how many years. The concept of using combat aviation has simply changed. As for the MiG-23, I will say the following: the MiG-21 was removed from production a couple of years later than the MiG-23. But the MiG-23 was originally conceived as an aircraft that would have to replace the MiG-21. What is it like?

    Undoubtedly thanks to him, moreover, it was realized in the time of TB-3!

    He will not see anything new there ... Everything is classified! If only this

    In recent years, Russia loves to present surprises to "our partners" .. And how much does it keep in the stash? hi
