Eyes in the Sky: NATO will update the fleet of radar reconnaissance aircraft


The Alliance intends to begin phased decommissioning of long-range radar reconnaissance aircraft. It is planned to complete this process by the 2035 year. A statement was made by Jens Stoltenberg.


According to the NATO Secretary General, machines of this specialization are “our eyes” in the sky. New AWACS aircraft will have improved performance due to the equipment of autonomous systems, the widespread introduction of artificial intelligence and the availability of a massive amount of data.

As Stoltenberg explained, the vehicles of this type made a significant contribution during the patrol of the sky after the 2011 attacks of the year, during the operation in Afghanistan and the Middle East as part of the defeat of the Islamic State (banned in Russia).

Currently, the American AWACS fleet is represented by more than thirty vehicles. Combat duty are models E-3, 10 E-3C, 22 E-3B, E-2C. Against this background, Russia's capabilities are much more modest: in its ranks aviation about twenty aircraft of the A-50 model are in service, including its improved modification of the A-50U. To replace this obsolete machine, an A-100 is created. He made his first flight in November 2017.

      "Military Review", so what happened to you ??? WHERE detailed articles, as before:
      https://topwar.ru/110631-aviaciya-drlo-chast-3.html
      They wrote in detail and in high quality, but what is this news? rewrote the words of an official sad
      According to Military Balance 2018, the U.S. Air Force is currently operating 28 E-3B / C / G.
      In addition to the Tinker airbase, American “air sentry” frequent guests at US air bases around the world. Aircraft of this type, taking off from Kadena airbases in Okinawa or Elmendorf in Alaska, under the guise of fighters regularly patrol along the borders with the PRC, the DPRK and Russia.
      The new Boeing 737AEW & C is an Airborne Early Warning and Control aircraft created by Boeing, an American company, commissioned by the Royal Australian Air Force. The aircraft was created on the basis of the Boeing 737-700 commercial airliner and has another designation Boeing 737-7ES. The first flight of the aircraft took place on May 20, 2004.


      The Secretary of Defense of Great Britain, Gavin Williamson, signed a contract worth $ 22 billion on March 2019, 1,98, for the acquisition of five U.S. Airborne Early Warning Radar (DRL) aircraft and the Boeing E-7 (also known as the Boeing 737 AEW & C) for the Royal Air Force.
      It is reported that the first E-7 aircraft should enter the British Air Force in 2023. Five purchased E-7 aircraft should replace the seven British Air Force Aircraft and Boeing E-3D Sentry (Sentry AEW.1) aircraft operated by the 1991th Squadron since 8 (six E-3D aircraft are actually operating now) in the UK Air Force. Thus, the UK will be the first country to carry out the replacement of E-3 aircraft.

      Etc. I'd like details from the Military site ...

      This is a Boeing 707. It was designed in such shaggy times that takeoff from the primer was almost the norm. B-737 can take off from the primer, on the network a car photo and video.
      But the B-707 also knows how to make a barrel.

    It’s interesting ... apparently the commissioning of the S-400 and C500 nullifies the capabilities of these aircraft with a range of 300 km of targets, they become reachable for the missiles of our complexes ... sadness for them however.

      When is it planned to start production of the first S-500 drill?
      When is it planned to begin production of missiles for the S-500 and with which performance characteristics?

      Come to the mirror and correct your eyes there ... Well, to fix the alternative reality yourself finally ...

        "Serial production of the S-500 anti-aircraft missile system will begin in the 2020 year," said Rostec CEO Sergei Chemezov in an interview with RBC.

          And if in the next year the war begins - you say that this is dishonest?
          We have S-500 Chemezov has not yet begun to build?

      Victor hi
      An article is just a reprint from some not-so-competent publication. Even, I would say, optimistic. NATO and its allies have much more AWACS. E-3 only about 60 (USA, UK, France, Saudi Arabia, directly the NATO command), more than a dozen E-737 (Australia, Turkey, Korea), 4 Japanese E-767 and more than 80 E-2 Hokai (USA, Japan, Israel, France, Taiwan, Egypt, etc.). I still do not take into account the "crafts" of Israel and Sweden. All American E-2Cs (mainly based on aircraft carriers) are replaced by E-2D with AFAR and will be stored for storage in good condition and with an un exhausted resource.
      Our answer - a dozen A-50s - is all based in Ivanovo. The cash and storage status of about 10 is very difficult to assess.
      Total - one and a half hundred from the enemy, scattered around the world, ready at any time to begin to carry out tasks against a dozen Russian A-50s, which are being pulled from one base.
      Very, very needed A-100 Premier.

        I am aware that all our optimism has stood and will stand on the fact that we, defending our borders, are likely to devote everyone and everything with the help of vigorous arguments.
        Although, we have other defense arguments, including “tanks at other people's airfields”.
        By the way, to say that everything is straight so good and smooth in the NATO armies is too optimistic.

          By and large, we need to build up all the elements of intelligence, technical and others. Of course COMMUNICATION, elements of automation, decentralization of management and network technologies. More electronic warfare, in all its directions.
          Those. if we can hit / deflect, then we won’t miss the right moment, this becomes the most important task.
          In short, there’s a lot to start, and when I’m able to finish, I don’t even imagine.

    By the way, Andrey! Have you seen this guide for 2019? It used to be that it came out in December. In December 2016 - Military Balance 2017, and in December 2017 - Military Balance 2018. But in December 2018, the guide for 2019 did not appear.

    Well, did someone scan the previous ones? Or think it was cheaper? I have about 2 dozen of them (since 1998). Before that, there were only parts (about half of the manual). Pieces seven to eight
