Southern Military District has been replenished with a modernized Il-20M reconnaissance aircraft

The Southern Military District has put into operation a modernized Il-20M electronic reconnaissance aircraft. The ceremony took place at one of the airfields in the Rostov region. This was reported by the press service of the Southern Military District.


According to the report, the main feature of the modernized Il-20M aircraft is the ability to issue target designations to the Kinzhal hypersonic aviation missile system. It is emphasized that communication is carried out via a secure communication channel directly with the missile itself.

The new reconnaissance aircraft is equipped with modern electronic, radio-technical and optical-electronic reconnaissance systems, which allows it to intercept radio in a wide spectrum of frequencies. In addition, the latest equipment installed on the aircraft makes it possible to detect small-sized objects in the air, conduct video and high-resolution photography.

The press service emphasized that the modernized Il-20M is capable of performing tasks in any weather conditions and at any time of the day.

Recall that the ROC "Reviewer" on the modernization of Il-20M aircraft was completed in the spring of 2018, at the end of May the military received the first modernized Il-20M. The Il-20 and Il-22 special-purpose aircraft were modernized by the Ilyushin Company and the Myasishchev Experimental Machine-Building Plant.

IL-20 is intended for electronic reconnaissance and electronic warfare. The aircraft is based on the passenger Il-18. It first flew in 1968.

        Heh-heh-heh ... pomnitsa, on militaryphotos they somehow posted a photo of the takeoff of a prototype aircraft based on the Il-20. The photo lasted only half an hour - and was removed from the hosting.

          Well, this is already ... far from experienced ... ... has been flying since 2015 in a new capacity wink (I mean, in general, the modification of the Il-20M, well, or ed.17M)

    The Southern Military District was replenished with an upgraded Il-20M reconnaissance aircraft.

    I came to the database to replace the dead IL-20 in the sky of Syria!

    The aircraft is over 50 years old.
    How much can you upgrade?
    The glider's resource is not eternal ..
    And the pace of course delivers - one thing a year

      I agree. The plane is very good, but if the modern mind and "design thought" are not enough to create something better, you start the production of at least these planes, and do not stick the upgraded equipment into an already worn-out glider.

      Yeah, you can say, 63 years old ...
      It’s probably not the glider that is being modernized, but the filling. By the way, the Il-18 is a very respected machine among aviators. It’s not special…. I understand that another century is in the yard, but they cannot master an adequate replacement in the required quantities.
      ... They sculpt heels on Soviet "galoshes." (((

        Without the "modernization" of the airframe ... well, there is no way ... it's 100%.
        And after all the necessary "measures" have been carried out, the assigned service life is extended by 5 years
        well, 1 (2,3 ....) year of service life until the next repair. a Technical Act is issued.
        And with the next repair, they are already extending the assigned service life up to 50 years. and a Conclusion is issued.

          You do not confuse modernization, with scheduled maintenance, ... to extend the service life ... - a suspiciously topical topic lately ...

            No, I do not confuse, since these machines are all "far from young age" and today I have an extension of the appointed period by 1-2 years maximum, and when prolonging, either "severe forms" (which are akin to KR) or CWR are usually carried out, or KR.
            And the periodic (planned) goes in its own order wink

              Thanks for the reply.
              When extending the service life of ICBMs, they cost, in fact, in-depth testing ...

          All the "modernization" of the airframe is reduced by a pure flaw detection.

      It is precisely because of the glider and the time spent in flight that they are still being held in the armed forces, and this is optimal from the point of view of reconnaissance. So such an aircraft will be needed in twenty years, of course, with new engines.

      There were two of them in the air squadron of the OSN brigade according to the state before - this is a piece product and the massive demand has nothing to do with it, because there, in addition to the flight crew, there is a large number of specialists of non-aviation VUS.
      I think that one of the authors correctly pointed out that this plane went to replace the one shot down earlier in Syria.

      But you can submit with fanfare the modernization of the remnants and rub in the townsfolk that we have it all right. From anti-submarine divisions Tu-142 Navy Northern Fleet in Kipelovo remained stunted squadron... How many of them are in airworthy condition is difficult to say. The same goes for the Pacific Fleet.

        How not to remember the now rotten Soviet Union with its postscripts ?! EVERYTHING IS THE SAME! Only with the removal of all obligations (real) on the social security account.

      In fact, the Il-20M is the nomenclature of the GRU General Staff and the plane was ordered for osnaz brigades, so it is unlikely that it is in service with the Aerospace Forces. At least this was the case earlier and in Soviet times and later.
