Baltic Fleet aviation tested new mobile airfields

The Russian Ministry of Defense intends to soon adopt mobile airfields, a decision will be made based on the results of pilot operation. This is reported "News" with reference to the military department.


Baltic Fleet aviation tested new mobile airfields


Aviation Of the Baltic fleet conducted the first tests of a new mobile airfield, which was deployed in a few hours on the island of Gogland in the Gulf of Finland during special tactical exercises. The engineering division built a full infrastructure with five seats for combat and transport helicopters. At the same time, all equipment and technical means were delivered to the island by one Mi-26 helicopter. After completion of work, army aviation crews landed at the new airfield.

According to the Ministry of Defense, such a jump airfield is capable of receiving all types of combat and transport helicopters, as well as some front-line aircraft. It allows you to quickly and covertly increase air groupings in the necessary directions and expand the capabilities of naval aviation in the performance of combat missions. Based on the results of trial operation, a decision will be made on introducing new items on other fleets.

The mobile aviation complex includes a full range of structures and equipment for use at temporary tactical aviation aerodromes: a command and control station, a satellite navigation system receiver, a weather station, mobile lighting systems, a fueling complex, and a maintenance center. For the construction of the runway, special metal plates are used, on which special strip lighting is subsequently installed. All equipment is fully compliant with conventional military airfield systems.

At maximum load, one mobile airfield is capable of autonomously providing flights for one squadron, which will continuously conduct combat operations for a month.

    Some front-line aircraft? What are they? Like Yak-130, L-39? The idea, in general, is a good one ... in this way it is possible to arrange airfields on the autobahn sections ... and not only for the Yak-130!

      Some frontline aircraft? What are these? Type Yak-130, L-39

      Since when has the YAK-130 and L-39 become front-line aviation? belay
      thus it is possible to arrange airfields on the autobahn sections

      For a long time, atobans themselves can take front-line aviation without it.

        Duc, there are talks about creating a light attack aircraft based on the Yak-130! And in many countries the L-39 has long been "transformed" into a light attack aircraft! So I "thought" a little about the future and export! In addition, I said "like ...", it means that not only the Yak-130, but also aeroplans with a take-off weight comparable to the Yak-130 to some extent were meant ...

          So we do not have combat aircraft with a weight comparable to the Yak130

              Not in places, I once drove through it a couple of times in the late 90s, then it was not yet repaired and it was not covered with asphalt. And I perfectly remember the remnants of wooden formwork for the most part of the road from customs to Borisov.

                And there are similar sites in the Smolensk region and in the suburbs. I tried to count from Smolensk, after the fifth I threw it.

      This is an ordinary, so-called jump airfield. Ever since WWII, such airfields have been deployed as necessary. Just added there

      .

          Helicopters, by and large, do not care. However, like airplanes. They are initially designed for use with unpaved runways.
          Therefore, coating is desirable but not necessary.
          If there is no cover, then remove all stones, branches and other garbage. So that the engines do not suck or scatter it all around.
          Well, in the rain, and accordingly in the mud and slush, in the absence of coverage, a flight restriction is introduced.

    It turned out to be a good mobile airfield, an indispensable thing will be for aviation.
    For the construction of runways, special metal plates are used.

    And also, in many parts, their of these metal plates, make and build fences.

    I do not see any particular novelty in this message, except perhaps for the fact that the composition of the airfield equipment includes satellite navigation devices. I saw everything else more than once on various exercises, including the West 81 exercises. Airfields for turntables and light transporters were created using perforated metal plates that could connect to each other and create the required runway configuration. Such airfields were equipped with the necessary set of communication equipment, air traffic control and take-off-landing, refueling facilities and maintenance, etc.
    As a rule, transport helicopters, including MI26, were used to deliver this entire economy. Of course, such airfields were not suitable for take-off and landing of jet "whistles", but then there were hopes (alas, not justified) for the use of vertical take-off aircraft - Yakovlev’s landing. But there were problems with autobahns on the islands then. And on land, "road" airfields were then created in a decent amount, and not necessarily on domestic "highways". So this new, in fact, not completely forgotten old. Naturally, with some elements of novelty. In the West, similar airfields were also created then, including for jet Harriers.

      Of course, all this has long been known, produced and used. Most likely, the usual K-1D is a prefabricated metal coating for an aerodrome runway. In the 90s, when they started to pull everything that badly belongs to everyone who had access and opportunity, there were fences in their dachas. They give out innovation for the slime among Americans after the war.
