On the basis of "Eurofighter Typhoon" creates an air defense suppression aircraft

25

Airbus announced a combat system designed to determine the objectives of the defeat while suppressing enemy air defense. The new platform is based on the Eurofighter Typhoon fighter.


The Typhoon will have on board two EW systems, three 1000 liter suspended tanks and six MBDA SPEAR-EW air-to-ground missiles, which are still under development. In addition to the standard set of four Meteors designed to eliminate air targets, two Iris-T missiles are attached.

AGM-88B or AGM-88E AARGM systems can optionally act as an electronic warfare. This equipment for identifying potential targets will simultaneously enhance the overall survivability of the aircraft. Control of radar confrontation systems will be carried out by a "separate" crew member.

It is assumed that the designated modification of Eurofighter should begin operation by the 2026 year, while the full implementation of the project is scheduled for the end of the 2020's.

Eurofighter is the only fighter created by pan-European efforts. It was adopted by a number of European countries and not only - for example, Saudi Arabia.

    So what's new in this "idea"?
    What are the EW aircraft on aircraft carriers?
    Prowler in my opinion. After all, also on the basis of another glider.
    The idea is simple, like boots, we make an EW container (well, at least Khibiny), we hang it under the wing - here’s your special plane.
    We make the Khibiny "thicker" and hang up INSTEAD of the payload and jam everything around.
    And if you hang it under the SU-34 ... + You can get a lot.

      I even know whose air defense they want to suppress.

        znachetsa, on the basis of air defense of this side, it is necessary to create a system of destruction of aircraft eurofighter

      On aircraft carriers EA-18 Growler since 2007. EA-6 has been retired.

      The article is written.
      Airbus announced a combat system designed to determine the objectives of the defeat while suppressing enemy air defense. The new platform is based on the Eurofighter Typhoon fighter.

      Typhoon will have on board two electronic warfare systems, three 1000-liter suspension tanks and six MBDA SPEAR-EW air-to-ground missiles


      They say that in SPEAR-EW something revolutionary, sort of.
      “SPEAR-EW brings a revolutionary new potential. Which, along with the existing SPEAR3 cruise missiles, implies fundamental changes in the ability of friendly air forces to carry out their tasks, despite the availability of enemy air defense equipment. Our concept for SPAER comes down to creating a series of network weapons that can strike and neutralize the most advanced air defense systems. ”

      The replenishment of the existing SPEAR strike missile family with SPEAR-EW cruise missiles demonstrates the principle of introducing additional modifications that significantly increase the potential and combat capabilities of the SPEAR family without the need for re-integration of the platform. We do not stand still. And since we still have promising solutions and options for introducing promising technologies, we plan to expand the SPEAR family as we move forward. ”

      "Prowlers" have already been removed from service, there is now a "hornet" modified into a modification of electronic warfare.

    An air defense suppression plane ... Will they train to fly to Turkey on the S-400s delivered there? Yes Yes. So now it is necessary to create an air defense system for the destruction of such an aircraft, in conjunction with KREP to suppress the equipment of such a "suppressor" And now it is an "arms race" with my own eyes.

      MORE: South Korea, Australia, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Norway. Next in line: Spain and Denmark. At a tender from Switzerland and Singapore.
      The German Air Force wants to buy the F-35. When the Air Force commander announced this, he was immediately dismissed. Because the purchase of the F-35 practically means stopping the production of Typhoons. And this is the closure of the plant and the dismissal of thousands of German workers. The German government took care of them.

    Typhoons are trying to pull to the level of F-35 and Raphael on electronic warfare. But with the F-35, all this is hidden inside the fuselage and integrated with the radar, while Rafal and Typhoon have to hang containers with equipment.

        In passive surveillance mode.

          Right they lie. And then they were in the area where the S-400 was sitting, nobody watched exactly what, even with their eyes. S-400 - not Germans from the air show

    Okay, again and again, there will now be "winners, destroyers" of something, someone to do ... another run.
    You might think that those who want to destroy the necessary, effective, will sit and wait for him to arrive.
    Yeah, schaz-zz and once again zz-z.
    Shit and sword, the confrontation was and will continue to be, to infinity!

    For NATO, such aircraft are more relevant, given the saturation of the RF Armed Forces with various anti-aircraft air defense systems as part of the air defense system and object-based air defense. In NATO, air defense systems do not attach such importance. By the way, a version of the Khibiny for group protection is being developed for the Su-34.
