Four Su-35С multi-role fighters, already painted in the colors of the Russian Knights Aviation Group, were received by the group's pilots at the airfield of the KnAAZ manufacturing plant, after which they made a flight to the permanent base at the Kubinka airfield near Moscow, making an intermediate landing on the way in Novosibirsk. Su-35С replenished the fleet of the group, consisting of eight two-seat fighter Su-30СМ received by the group in October-November 2016 of the year. Moreover, it was previously reported that with the receipt of Su-35С, the group will not refuse to fly on the Su-30СМ.

With the transfer of these Su-35С aircraft plants in Komsomolsk-on-Amur ahead of schedule fulfilled the delivery plan for these fighters according to the State Defense Order 2019 of the year, all transferred to 10 fighter Su-35С. Four of them received the Russian Knights, and six Su-35S were delivered to the 790 Fighter Aviation Regiment of the 105 Combined Aviation Division of the 6 Leningrad Red Banner Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Western Military District, deployed at the Hotilovo airfield in the Tver Region .

Russian Knights is the only aerobatic team in the world showing aerobatics on the Su-27 and Su-30СM heavy fighters, which differ only in color from combat aircraft. 5 was formed on April 1991 of the year on the basis of the 1 air squadron of the Aviation Equipment Display Center at the Kubinka airfield. It consists of five pilots: Colonel Andrei Alekseev and Oleg Erofeev, Lt. Col. Sergei Scheglov, Majors Vladimir Kochetov and Igor Tkachenko.

    These pilots are real professionals. Congratulations on their new product! I hope our flight school will only replenish and grow stronger.

      I agree with you completely. I am only tormented by vague doubts - WHY do these aerobatic teams really need? Why do song and dance ensembles? Why would the army build a temple? I understand why an orchestra is needed in the military unit - YES, I understand why! And the rest of the rubbish - no! You can’t replace military labor with PR, I think so!

        For many reasons, for example, a demonstration of the capabilities of a fighter.

        Many elements of aerobatics can be useful to the pilot in real combat, for example, when the pilot needs to quickly reduce speed (cobra, bell) in order to let the advancing opponent go forward, as they say - the game turns into a hunter. Or flight wing to wing, where the enemy’s radar is deceived, which it takes for one object.

        I answer: for the fact that this is an advertisement of both the Air Force and equipment. As the shows of new cars at the salons. Aerobatic teams show their performances around the world and help sell aircraft and influence. Specifically, the Knights are based on the base, which is called the center for the display of military equipment, which, as the name implies, is designed to show the equipment and its capabilities to customers. The mattresses have two aerobatic teams, both fly in combat vehicles (slightly redone, but still combat ones). Knights, like Swifts, are combat pilots and undergo mandatory combat training. If necessary, they, as is, are sent to war along with everyone. It was high time for them to give new cars.

          They don’t show any opportunities ... It's like a company of honor guards ... Purely indicative, though of a high level techniques that have nothing to do with modern military operations. A show for gray townsfolk ... Pi_ndosy rely on long and medium air combat , the invisibility of their aircraft, on the tactical interaction between them and mutual target designation, and the use of AWACS aircraft ... In this, pilots of aerobatic teams are ignorant, we and combat pilots in this component are inferior to the enemy through no fault of their own ....

        Add to the answer above. This, among other things, is also our culture. Including the culture of the military. Anthems, military patriotic songs, who should be able to perform? You still say that parades are not needed. Of course we need. And if it were my will, I would still introduce old traditions, when military officers were also educated creatively, knew how to write poetry and knew literature.

          Dear, I see you read a lot of things, but from the category of heresy.
          This year I saw with my own eyes how the Knights showed the failure of the attack and the transfer to close combat. Everything is exactly the same as what combat pilots of naval aviation train. And do not tell me about the "stealth" and long arms. In conditions of a duel of two “fives”, the one who is sharper and faster will win. And now Vityaz will be able to do a flat corkscrew.

    Doubts, because you don’t have to fly a single day or design airplanes .....
    The designer (this is me professionally) needs to know how the car behaves in SKILLS. Believe me, a dialogue with pilots of this class is established without phones. Face to face, when the conversation goes on bluntly, frank and merciless. True, I was not engaged in airplanes for half a life, but my colleagues have the same approach to the topic.

    OVT is just one of many tools. And man has been able to design incredibly nimble airplanes for a long time. To do this, you just need to make an unbalanced design, which all the time strives to make a fortel. That is what allows. Well-tuned car NU, no one wants to turn, soar up or make somersault. The aerodynamics of the fuselage itself, wings against this violence. But the nimble car is insidious. She needs to BE ABLE to manage. How many pilots crashed on the I-16! Just because.....
    Automation electronics helps to steer modern airplanes. She takes on many of the functions of retention on the flight path. And the slightest intervention of the pilot instantly disables its stabilizing effect, which makes a magician out of a car.

    The winner is the one with BETTER EVERYTHING. Not only the car itself and the pilot. The one who has a better control system of the combat arms is better than an air defense system, better a warning, reconnaissance, and interaction system ..... Thousands of threads tied together lead to success. The beginning of the Great Patriotic War. A huge number of aircraft (talking about aviation), not bad, at the average level. Pilots are the elite and pride of the country. Thousands of flying clubs, education in the spirit of patriotism, respect and all that is possible .....
    And inept command and control. Yesterday's lieutenants commanded the regiments. With supply and service the same. Lack of initiative, and a mortal fear of falling under the rink of repression. Almost complete defeat of aviation in a few months of battles.

    This is bad. The pilot should be a musician as a musician. Simple in a month - and you need to start all over again. A combat flounder cannot be in this mode all the time. Military equipment cannot be in this mode for long. Participation and skill in circus car is deceiving. Who dies in the mine most? Not young, they are afraid and do not go anywhere. Not old people, they don’t go anywhere. Goldfinches that have worked in the bottom of the year die. Show off, arrogance, undefeated stupidity and self-confidence - that's what destroys. The flyers do the same. Passing in the aerobatic team for a short time does not give anything other than what I have already described. Only systematic exercises, in the mode, combat training not only in the sky, pilot = - is an engineer who controls the most complex machine that needs to be thoroughly known, and in a fraction of an instant to be able to make decisions. Aerobatic teams have completely different tasks, and they should not be confused with combat training. I would like to see how our Swifts (for example) can shoot. I think that any front-line flyer can do it much better.

    I marvel at the ignorance of some of the participants in the discussion! Not graduates of aviation schools, but pilots with the rank of at least captain, who have a great deal of flying experience and experience in the combat use of aircraft, are sent to the Russian Knights and Swifts AGVP. This is the ELITE of our Air Force. Nobody took off combat training from AGVP pilots, and I assure you - they are constantly improving it, and will apply it if necessary .. And the fact that there are "two sets" of planes ..., I assure you, there were THREE of all types of IA, IBA and still single copies for display to various delegations. So, if necessary, they will not be disgraced ... !!! There, almost all the pilots - “Sniper Pilot” and ZVL ... And these people know how to fight!
