Four Su-34 bombers returned from Syria to Russia


Four Su-34 bombers returned to Russia on March 11, 2020 as part of a rotation. The leader for the group was Tu-154 RA-85041, who arrived in Latakia late on March 10.


According to the publication "The reporter", Russian planes flew through the airspace of Syria, Iraq, Iran, turned over the Caspian Sea and landed safely at the Volga airport in the Astrakhan region.

Some Russian Internet publications, citing Western monitoring Internet resources, wrote on this occasion that Russian planes had to make a detour through Syria, Iraq, Iran and the Caspian Sea to fly to Russia, while they could fly through Turkish airspace, but Ankara has banned the passage of Russian aviation.

Four Su-34 bombers returned from Syria to Russia

However, we are forced to note that this statement is extremely false. Russian military aviation has never used Turkish airspace for flights, even during the warmest relations. Airplanes of the Military Transport Aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces, as well as passenger aircraft belonging to the military department, fly through Turkey. Returning from Syria or heading there, traditionally using the aforementioned route through the airspace of Syria, Iraq and Iran, the Russian Air Force.

The Ministry of Defense does not comment on the return of four Su-34s to Russia, and at the moment there is no information about the transfer of new aircraft to the Khmeimim air base.

        Excuse me, dear "Nastya", but which "organ" do you mean? If "child-bearing", then in this case, the phrase from the movie "Ambassador of the Soviet Union" is best suited: "... Everyone sees what he has"most needed"!!! request

        Yes, please contact, 900 hours. Genes take their toll - an uncle technician served in Dagestan for a second21, filled huge Talmuds after each flight. Which is not a field to go over.

              Are you bargaining? AL-31 has been studied and run up and down ... everything has long been known about motor resources too. In version M2, it has up to 3000 hours. Moreover, not on paper.

      What do you want? Put on a display case for admiring?
      That's what military vehicles are to perform their tasks.
      And replacing the engines is not a problem, perhaps there will still be an upgrade of everything.
      Yes, and pilots also benefit - to gain military experience and raid.
      This is also a plus and a considerable skill. In addition, it is better for pilots to know what are the weaknesses and what can convey invaluable information to the manufacturer.

      Probably, the personnel were also sent along with the planes and pilots, and besides them, for sure, there is a need for someone to go home, someone from home.

    It’s somehow bad that the Americans are occupying Iraq. Or didn’t they ask Iraq for permission?
