US Navy received the 100th P-8 Poseidon anti-submarine aircraft

The United States Navy received another anti-submarine aircraft. According to the portal janes.com, on May 15, 2020, Boeing transferred the 100th P-8A Poseidon to the United States Navy.


After the transfer of the new aircraft to the command of the U.S. Navy, they said that today they are armed with the American fleet There are 94 P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine aircraft operating on duty in various regions of the world, another 6 aircraft are used as test aircraft for testing various new products. However, by the end of the year, according to the plans of the Navy, there will already be 100 Poseidons on operational duty.

The start of the assembly of the 100th P-8A Poseidon aircraft for the U.S. Navy at Boeing was announced in April 2018.

P-8A Poseidon - a new generation patrol anti-submarine aircraft, created on the basis of the Boeing 737-800 passenger airliner. The aircraft is equipped with an AN / APS-137D (V) 5 airborne radar station and the AN / APY-10 radio intelligence system. In the internal compartment of the armament there are sonar buoys designed to detect submarines at great depths, free-falling and depth bombs, as well as Mark 54 torpedoes. Sidewinder air-to-air missiles (designed to protect the aircraft themselves) can also be mounted on the outer pylons of the aircraft and anti-ship missiles Harpoon.

In February this year, plans were announced for the U.S. Navy to rearm the P-8A Poseidon. The aircraft will be armed with LRASM anti-ship missiles, JDAM smart bombs, Quickstrike bottom mines, GBU-39 guided high-precision bomb, BRU-55 bomb holder and MALD bait to protect the aircraft from anti-aircraft systems.

    From AN-70 a good anti-submarine would be for our Navy.

      And why do we need a Ukrainian plane, if there is an excellent version of the Tu-214 which is mastered by industry.

        Antonov was built not by Ukrainians, but by the Soviet people. And AN-70 is not a fetus born in Ukraine.
        And what Ukrainians built in 30 years of independence, we all see ...

            It was possible to formulate the technical requirements for the new “air truck” only in 1986. The design and construction of the aircraft was to be undertaken by the Oleg Antonov Design Bureau - perhaps the largest Soviet specialists in this type of machine. By 1991, a prototype was already under construction, and then the Soviet Union collapsed, and Antonov Design Bureau remained on the territory of independent Ukraine. But the future of the An-70, however, did not seem vague in those years. Relations between the former Soviet republics were still strong, and in 1993 they managed to sign an agreement to continue joint trials and joint launch into production. The first flight of the "seventieth" took place at the end of 1994.
            Do you want to say that the AN-70 is a Ukrainian plane?

        The problem plane, besides the engines are outdated, eats a lot, this is a minus even for the military.
        Re-equipment for military purposes, this is a song for a long time, not cheap. New to do ... a small series, no one needs it.
        The most promising option is a new aircraft, in which the series is supposed to be much larger, i.e. MS 21.
        Moreover, the project is fresh and to design changes for the needs of the military, that's it!

          Problem plane

          Only because of the politics of Ukraine. Purely technically, the aircraft is magnificent and could be the best in its class. If its production began in Ulyanovsk (as planned), then it was difficult to come up with the best for the BTA - a great replacement for the An-12 and, in part, the Il-76, I felt great on unpaved strips, very little run / mileage.

          engines are outdated, eating a lot, this is a minus even for the military.

          God grant such "outdated" engines to the modern Russian aircraft industry. VERY ECONOMICAL with great screws. If the Union had been preserved, such aircraft would have been produced in a very good series and would have an outstanding export potential. They are MUCH more economical than the IL-76, they can use ANY airfields, they can be used both in military transport and civil aviation and the Ministry of Emergencies.
          Russia participated in the financing of this 50/50 project on a par with Ukraine, it was going to build on its capacities in cooperation, but ... the policy of the Ukrainian calabor made this impossible, therefore, the construction of the IL-76MD-90A is now launched at the facilities prepared for this in Ulyanovsk.

          But for a PLO aircraft, such a platform, of course, is not rational.
          MS-21 would be nice for the future, but there are two problems:
          - This aircraft is not yet in serial production, and orders that already exist will be enough for 10 years of serial production. It will take a long time to wait.
          - the MS-21 has an all-composite wing. This is a plus for aerodynamics, but can be a problem during operation. Any minor damage to such a wing can lead to the need for the entire wing, while such damage to the duralumin wing can be repaired within several hours / days by aircraft technicians at the aerodrome. For a military aircraft, this is very important in terms of combat readiness.
          Therefore, it is more rational to use for the PLO purposes as the Tu-214 platform, which is already being used as a platform for reconnaissance aircraft (RTR, RLR and optical reconnaissance), EW aircraft, relay aircraft, and other special-purpose aircraft, there are plans to create Tu-based 214 aircraft AWACS. Having a single platform for all such aircraft is much more profitable in terms of operation.
          And God forbid to see MS-21 as soon as possible in the classic passenger hypostasis.

            YOU ARE MISTAKEN! I made comments only on the plane TU 214AN 70 did not consider ... we don’t have it and never will, it seems.
            In our case, there are more problems in the organizational and economic plan, although in the technical problems there are infinite.
            We get it in small series, very expensive, respectively, with a bunch of subsequent problems .... but as with stripes we can’t do it anymore, we are not the USSR, we don’t have that clear plan!

        Why do we need a Ukrainian plane ...

        Most of the costs were borne by Russia, the plane was assembled from Russian components, the buyer was also Russia (Ukraine promised to buy 2 planes), but the expensive, preferably ever-flowing OCD was to be carried out by ANTK, which, by the way. not much interested in the cost of the serial An-70. But they were interested in records and participation in the air show, for some reason, under the Ukrainian flag. [Quote] [/ quote]

      It is necessary to involve a serial board, as it was done in the USA .... even the MC21 in the "long-range" version is optimal. And it will be possible to attract both technicians and engineers for retraining from civilian life. And the resource of the units is civil.

Let the "patriots" like you minus me here, but I, as having served 25 years in the USSR naval aviation, can say for sure that our anti-submarine aviation, numbering several squadrons, now serves purely only for "showing the flag" off the coast Alaska, in the North and Norwegian Seas, but not to "fear the enemies." How sad it is to realize this. Once upon a time, it was only at our airfield that anti-submarine aviation was based as part of the anti-submarine division and a regiment of naval reconnaissance target designators, of which nothing remained.

                Thank you. In principle, the answer is expected, so it seemed, from the existing ...
                Sorry for the importunity, the question is again: how much does the minimum speed affect the efficiency of the aircraft of the PLO aircraft. Barrage time (here, it seems, the more, the better). I mean that turboprop aircraft are in place, something modern in the development of IL -18?

Again, modernization, restoration of the resource ... Well, and, as they say wild noise.

                Or will we again threaten armageddon with the help of the Strategic Missile Forces? As a person still small in the subject, I dare to report that problems are accumulating there as elsewhere.

      We don't have half the Poseidons in operation. In the case of D-day, our submarines are covered .... The only way to save SSBNs from Poseidons is to transfer our SSBNs to those waters where enemy air submarine warfare cannot reach them.

        Well, two pieces are already officially on the database. And they were like written off. And then all of a sudden the "special purpose" of the Navy. I see no obstacles that four more will emerge in the near future. Khrenova, the Americans financed the destruction of our submarine fleet. If I were the Pentagon, I would hang all the curators as enemies of the American people laughing

          Caspian. There is a base there, although it needs modernization for submarines, there are depths sufficient for submarines. There are no enemy surface forces and submarines. There is an opportunity to protect the waters from the Poseidon duty.

    How many of these Poseidons will be typed into one of our submarines? Striped devils are afraid!

    Why should they be afraid? These "striped devils", unlike us, are developing their anti-submarine aviation at a pace that we never dreamed of. What do we have left? Crumbs in the form of several Tu-142 and Il-38. Let the "patriots" like you minus me here, but I, as having served 25 years in the USSR naval aviation, can say for sure that our anti-submarine aviation, numbering several squadrons, now serves purely only for "showing the flag" off the coast Alaska, in the North and Norwegian Seas, but not to "fear the enemies." How sad it is to realize this. Once upon a time, it was only at our airfield that anti-submarine aviation was based as part of the anti-submarine division and a regiment of naval reconnaissance target designators, of which nothing remained.
    But what do you prove, you see everything through the pink glasses.
    In fact, we had parity in those times. And now we have both an order of magnitude smaller number of SSBNs and the strongest anti-submarine aviation, and not only, their hunters are constantly spinning at the bases of our strategists. To all this, plus US allies in NATO, and all this against a handful of our strategists.

    Smiled about Poseidon, against someone against Poseidon - so our Poseidon still needs to get to the areas where he will be good, but taking into account the scanty number of our nuclear submarines and the strength of their anti-submarine forces, this is the same number that needs to be turned and not the fact that it will succeed .
