China appreciates Russian Su-34 fighter-bomber


In 2020, the Russian Aerospace Forces should receive several dozen modernized Su-34s. As you can see, the multipurpose fighter-bomber is still in demand in the Russian military aviation.


The development of the Su-34 began in 1986. The aircraft was supposed to replace the Su-24 bomber, which was widely used in almost all local conflicts in which the Soviet Union participated. Afghanistan, both Chechen campaigns - everywhere the Su-24 took an active part, but by the beginning of the 2000s. the life of the bomber came to an end. Therefore, it was decided to launch the Su-34 in mass production.

His first in stories The Su-34 fighter-bomber flew thirty years ago on April 13, 1990. But the interval between the flight of the prototype and the flight of the first production copy stretched for 16 years. Only on October 12, 2006, the first Su-34 production aircraft took off into the sky. Finally, on March 20, 2014, the Su-34 was officially adopted by the Russian Air Force.

It is clear that the Su-34 is a high-quality machine and much more efficient than its predecessors. Long range, large carrying capacity, modern equipment - this is not a complete list of the advantages of the Su-34 over the former Soviet front-line bombers. During the fighting in Syria, the Su-34 aircraft have proven themselves due to the high accuracy of the hit. This was facilitated by the advanced optical sighting system installed on the aircraft.

However, many are surprised by the fact that the Su-34, despite its good performance, is never produced in the export version. According to the author of the Chinese edition of Sina, the reason for this is a certain discrepancy between the Su-34 and the requirements for specifically multi-role fighters. The Chinese author writes that the Su-34 remains an excellent front-line bomber, but it nevertheless solves highly specialized tasks. Therefore, to classify it as a multi-functional fighter would not be entirely correct.

Su-34 perfectly fulfills attacks on land and sea targets. It is capable of hitting enemy infrastructure, its military equipment, which is natural for a front-line bomber. But for the right to be called a multi-functional fighter, writes Sina, this is not enough.

So, to conduct an air battle with the Su-34 is not as good as that of other multi-functional fighters, but for this type of aircraft it is one of the defining characteristics. In the conduct of air combat, the Su-34 is inferior to both the American F-15 and the Russian Su-30, while the F-15 modification is able to conduct high-quality air combat and take on a large payload.

But the author comes to the conclusion that Russia, most likely, needs just such an aircraft - more of a front-line bomber and, to a lesser extent, a fighter. It doesn’t matter that the Su-34 is not delivered to other countries, but for the time being it is quite coping with the tasks that the Russian Air Force sets before it.

However, in another article of the Chinese edition, the author admits:

Su-34 is really a very good car for air strike. The aircraft can take on all Russian ground strike operations.

The Chinese audience agrees with this opinion.

For large countries, for offensive or offensive and defensive air forces, attack aircraft is the main type,

- writes one of the resource commentators.

Thus, the Russian Su-34 aircraft meets a completely adequate assessment in China. By the way, given that the American edition of Military Watch recognized the Su-34 as the best strike aircraft in the world, you can really be proud of the bomber.

That is why it was decided to supply dozens of such aircraft to the Russian Aerospace Forces. In total, by 2020, the Aerospace Forces of the Russian Federation plan to obtain, according to open sources, up to 200 Su-34 aircraft, completely replacing the outdated Su-24.

        At least one million Armat, Su 57, C 500, etc. are needed for the “general divan battle”. by the list. Without them, you cannot defeat the adversary laughing

    The main thing is that A.E. Serdyukov did not have time to "optimize" NAPO them. Chkalova.

      Well, how about without a blur about optimization. By the way, if you still live in 2011, I can tell you that Serdyukov is no longer the Minister of Defense.

        Wake up and sing. This person leads the UAC, which produces the Su-34. And already began to cut jobs at NAPO them. Chkalova.

          You need to wake up. He is the chairman of the board of directors, not the CEO. Optimization is completely different. And job cuts or job increases are natural things. Something none of you opened your mouth when they increased the number of jobs in the KLA in general or, for example, in Almaz-Antey.

              The director of the plant is responsible for the production of the plant and increase or decrease in jobs, and not the head of the company the plant is part of, despite the fact that Serdyukov is not the general director of the company. You seem vaguely to imagine what a corporation or holding is and what a board of directors is.
              The chairman’s tasks also include planning the work of the council: the frequency and duration of meetings, shaping the agenda. The chairman should be a strategist and initiator of changes, be a kind of mentor for the CEO and top managers - to contribute to their development and personal growth.

                  Yuri is knowledge not in the aviation industry, but in management. They are standard for all companies around the world.

                      Personally, I do not feel any sympathy for Serdyukov, but I personally did not work with him, to say whether he is a good manager or not. In addition, there are people who work well in one area and badly in another. You can evaluate his work only after at least a year of work.

      Because they prefer to buy universal vehicles, and not separately front-line bombers and fighters to gain superiority in the air. It’s easier to teach the Su-30/35 to work on the ground not to the detriment of fighter capabilities than to spend money on a specialized airplane. So they are bought.

    What kind of nonsense? We never said that the Su-34 is a multi-functional fighter. He is a front-line bomber with the ability to conduct air combat. Only.

      did you notice where the quotes come from? From the foreign press. In the West, there is no such thing as a "front-line bomber." There are either tactical (long-range) bombers, or fighter-bombers (sometimes they are also called tactical strike fighter). And again, abroad did not bother to create a specialized aircraft - they taught fighters to work on the ground (as an example - Mirage and Eagle)
      There is nothing for our incredible friends to compare the Su-34 with, they do not have a similar machine, that's why they are trying to compare it with the closest IS specifications (like the Strike Needle), and they dance from them.

      Do not be so nervous)

    Until 2020, the aerospace forces of the Russian Federation plan to obtain, according to data from open sources, up to 200 Su-34 aircraft, completely replacing the outdated Su-24.


    I'm sorry, but how many years did the author spend in a coma? Or traveled from Earth?
    It’s been the third month since 2020, the Su-24 is still in service, and the Su-34 in the Air Force is about a hundred.

    In 2020, the Russian Aerospace Forces should receive several dozen modernized Su-34s
    and here the author, apparently, read fiction. Show at least one camp in the world capable of producing several dozens of modern jet combat aircraft in a year ???

        the example is very incorrect. It produces components for F-35 from a dozen countries. I would like to look at the assembly process of dozens of aircraft, if only the United States or only Italy, for example)

        Well and still, for fans just to argue and justify the nonsense written by the author of this scribble:
        Russia continues to purchase the Su-34 front-line bomber. In February of this year, it became known that a new contract for the supply of Su-34 airborne forces of the Russian Federation will be signed in the summer of 2020. The exact number of aircraft is unknown, but probably the total number of these machines will exceed one hundred

        Now, for the sake of interest, we look what the author has been upsetting, and for that miserable reason that you found to insert your three pennies (absolutely inappropriate)

          Sorry, but the same skill is needed here, to organize such cooperation for our own benefit and most importantly, I have full confidence that, if necessary, the United States will be able to launch this aircraft without the help of other countries, if not a hundred a year, then several dozen then for sure. The specificity of the organization of their production allows this.
