Russia has received several applications from foreign countries for the supply of Su-34

46

Russia is preparing for possible purchases by foreign countries of the Russian export Su-34 front-line bomber (Su-32). Applications for the purchase of aircraft sent several countries. This was told by the head of Rosoboronexport Alexander Mikheev in the framework of the Dubai Airshow exhibition held in Dubai.


According to Mikheev, applications for the Su-34 bomber have come from several countries and are currently being considered. At the same time, he did not disclose who specifically wants to buy a Russian plane.

Work is underway. Several partners even flew these planes. So we are waiting for decisions, we conduct marketing work

- he explained.

The interest of foreign countries in the Su-34 bomber was officially reported back in the 2015 year, contacts with potential buyers were possible before, but at that time it was banned for export. The aircraft received permission to deliver abroad in April last year, as well as the export version - Su-32.

So far, the Su-34 has not been delivered abroad; aircraft from the 2006 are delivered only in the interests of the Russian Aerospace Forces.

Su-34 is a multi-functional fighter-bomber designed to strike at ground and surface targets in the face of strong opposition from enemy air defense equipment. According to its combat capabilities, the Su-34 belongs to the 4 ++ generation and is capable of performing basic combat missions without escorting fighters. Due to the high speed and maneuverability, the bomber can independently conduct an air battle with enemy fighters. The plane received the unofficial nickname "Duckling" because of the bow, in a shape resembling a duck beak.

    Finally, at least some movement on this issue. "Syrian experience," may help in promoting the Su-34, and the work of the workers.

      We have the prospect of writing off more than a hundred Su-24Ms, why did they stop the production of Su-34 for themselves?
      According to the videoconferencing plans to write off all Su-24M until 2025.

      What did he show in Syria? The Su-34 was used instead of a tactical strike, which we do not have, as a class in general. As well as the Su-24M, which is on a par with it, but even more costly with a radius of 2 times less ... Use 2 front-line heavy bombers instead of tactical attack aircraft from complete hopelessness! Even the name came up with the clowns: a tactical front-line bomber! What is it like ? A horse elephant or something?

      It carries 12 tons of missiles and bombs. A universal machine for combating both air, ground and surface targets.

      In 2016, the delivery of the modernized electronic warfare complex for individual and group defense “Khibiny-M” (L256) began. Its built-in Proran radio reconnaissance system detects a source of radar radiation, classifies it, determines the coordinates and parameters of the trajectory (if it is an airplane), and provides information to other systems of the complex. The system for setting active interference of individual protection “Regatta” in two SAP-518 containers receives data from “Proran” on the frequencies and other parameters of the enemy radar signal, generates and emits response distorting interference signals. Like previous samples, two SAP-518 are placed on the wing ends, and a third container is suspended under the fuselage - SAP-14 Tarantula, which, interacting with electronic warfare equipment of other aircraft of the group, creates a complex field of heterogeneous signals that impede the determination of the current coordinates of the entire combat vehicle order and guidance of missiles with radar control systems of all types on them.


      tests were also underway for a new reconnaissance complex for the Su-34, consisting of several systems made, like on the Su-24MR, in the form of interchangeable hanging containers. In the first, such as Ukrainian-RT, there is a radio intelligence station, which is probably a smaller version of the equipment of the M-410 strategic reconnaissance Tu-214SR. It identifies secure and secretive means of communication, radar detection, radio navigation and combat control, records their signals, determines the coordinates and mode of operation, and also ensures the use of guided weapons against them, both with the anti-radar homing system and with the inertial or satellite. The carrier of the Ukrainian-RT system can destroy the detected objects and direct other planes by means of a “closed” data transmission line operating in real time.


      NPO Mashinostroyeniya is developing two other containers under the same project - Ukrainian-RL with a side-scan radar and Ukrainian-EO with a set of electron-optical equipment. The tests of the Ukrainian-RT container on the pre-production T10V-7 were completed by the end of 2017, which allows us to begin replacing not only the old Su-24 and Su-24M front-line bombers, but also the Su-24MR reconnaissance aircraft. The new Su-34 scout will not be as before a specialized modification of an attack aircraft with only defensive missiles, but it will retain all the other capabilities of the basic version of the aircraft.

      Impressive. The Su-34 is a universal aircraft. And there are no orders since for many countries its capabilities are superfluous. As a rule, inexpensive universal single-engine fighters are selected. In our case, if not in this class, only the MiG-35 is close to it.

      At maximum bomb loading, the possibility of suspending from four to eight short-and medium-range air-to-air missiles remained. The maximum mass of the combat load was achieved precisely with these ammunition: 16 FAB-500ShN bombs, two R-27ER and ET missiles plus four R-73s weighed 10 kg. And the maximum external load weight of 204 tons was obtained with hanging tanks. It was given the same bomb loading in combination with four R-12 missiles and two PTB-73 or half (eight FAB-2000ShN) with four R-500, two R-73ER and one PTB-27.

      Initially, only Algeria. And so his guys flew on the Su-34 for sure.

      However, then everything stalled. At first, Algeria was not allowed to buy. Algeria now has no time for expensive purchases, it needs to resolve the political crisis, well, and then the new president will decide.

        Definitely not allowed to buy? There was no ban on its export. Algeria preferred to buy a multifunctional Su-30MKA. And this is not surprising. Most countries of the world go this way. And booking cabins on such aircraft is archaism. He is not an attack aircraft.
        The author, it seems to me, misinterpreted the words of Mikheev and gave the wish for the reality.

        He did not speak about any applications. Yes, they are interested, but no more. And export contracts, oh, how are the plants needed now, where there is a reduction in state orders and, as a result, staff optimization.

          There was activity in the 16-17 year.
          Media: Algeria bought Russian Su-34
          According to the resource, "Algeria ordered 12 aircraft Su-32." It is noted that negotiations on the purchase of aircraft last from 2011. Then the Algerian negotiators "became hostages of the clan war in the country's leadership."

          Algeria continues to show interest in purchasing Su-32 bombers
          Algerian delegation which visited International Aerospace Salon MAKS-2017, raised the issue of Su-32 bomber, whose purchase has been postponed for more than a year.
          Algeria expressed its intention to acquire at least a Su-32 squadron, which is an export version of the Su-34 front-line bomber, designed to replace the Su-24MK bombers.

        And how do you think the fighter-bomber differs from a tactical attack aircraft? Compare the same F-15 in its attack version with the Su-34. Or is the F-15 not a tactical attack aircraft? The Su-34 is a universal aircraft that combines the functions of an attacker Kh-31AD, Kh-31PD, Kh-58UShK, Kh-35U, Kh-38 and the fighter R-27ER / ET / EA / EP, R-77.

    The tactics are clear. Now, buyers of weapons from Russia, we must stay in the "shadow",
    until the moment of signing the contract. Everyone is afraid of US raids. Only India is worth what - today I’ll buy it, tomorrow I won’t buy it, today it’s Su-35, tomorrow it’s not, I’ll buy F-16. And so on until the time of signing.
