Su-35s are tested for combat use.


Flight tests with real combat use of the Su-35S multifunctional super-maneuverable fighter are currently being conducted as part of the state joint tests (GSI) at the State Flight Test Center of the Russian Air Force. The obtained technical and accuracy characteristics of sight-and-aiming systems and combat use modes basically correspond to the declared technical task, the press service of the Sukhoy Company OJSC reports.

During the GSI, a significant volume of flights was performed to assess the flight technical characteristics, strength, stability and controllability, the power plant and the on-board equipment complex. Important ground and flight tests were carried out to verify the functioning of the information management system, communications complex, navigation, and the radar system. At the stands of the Sukhoi Design Bureau and subcontractors, active work is underway to conduct ground tests of the systems and systems of the aircraft.

Total flight test program performed more than 650 flights.

Su-35 - deeply upgraded super-maneuverable multi-generation fighter "4 ++". It uses the technology of the fifth generation, providing superiority over fighters of a similar class. The distinctive features of the aircraft are the new avionics complex based on a digital information control system, an integrated on-board equipment system, a new radar station with a phased antenna array with a large range of airborne targets with an increased number of simultaneously followed and fired targets and swivel vector thrust.

        And what do you suggest, on GOS = ah and immediately on the real ones?

        This is not practiced, but at the stage of military trials, yes ... drinks
        An example .... the use of Su-34 in the August database! good

        In the meantime .. only on target at the landfills .... and this is quite normal!

        Aircraft is essentially a complex, i.e. a platform with equipment and weapons, so any component must pass its stage of testing, from design-mock-up bench to flying. +! soldier

        Therefore, at this stage, the GSI process is underway, both for separate weapons, on other carriers ...

      Sanya, welcome, +! Well, here everything is in order, even more than, because The ICG were on the plan for 2013, and you see how much they moved ... it's a lot of progress!

      Only now, it’s time for the author to get rid of the Su-35BM pictures, because there’s a conversation in the article about the Su-35C (that is, the modernization of BM is already the second generation!).

          For IA and FBA, in principle, he was already yes and there .. just change the stuffing ... Su-24MP!

          Although the Guide has a different opinion on this matter ... request

          In the section "Sale of property" on June 20 of this year, an information message was published on the sale of scrap of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, the source of the formation of which are 24 uncut gliders of front-line Su-33 bombers in the amount of 17 pieces. The location of 4,8 gliders is indicated at the Lebyazhye airfield, located in the Volgograd region, and sixteen more - at the Yeisk airfield in the Krasnodar Territory. The initial price of the former is set at 4,5 million rubles, and for the Yeisk ones - at 6 million rubles. The results of the auction will be announced on August XNUMX.

          Apparently, the planes being sold were decommissioned in the course of bringing the Air Force to a "new" look, when 1 bomber aviation regiment from Lebyazhye and 959 baptists from Yeisk, which operated the "classic" Su-24, were disbanded. As you know, during the reform of the Air Force, the backbone of the bomber aviation was made up of more modern Su-24M aircraft, including their modernized versions of the Su-24M2 under the Sukhoi holding program and the Su-24, which were revised according to the Metronome design and development project developed by Gefest CJSC and T ". Older Su-24s remained only in the Black Sea Fleet airbase, based in the Crimea, and, according to some sources, in the Air Force air group in Morozovsk.

          It is worth noting that this auction is the first auction to sell decommissioned aircraft after the Air Force reform began in 2009.

    The question is, why did they decide to abandon the PGO, although they initially extolled it as an advantage despite the presence of engines with high-voltage gear?

      For maneuverability - definitely an advantage, but fonit on the radar. So then came up with a way to do without it. Although there would not prevent the opinion of the pros to find out

        Andrew, welcome, +! A little, very little, but not true ....

        PGOs were set due to the fact that new equipment and changes in the airframe violated the original alignment, the aircraft became too stable and a controlled destabilizer had to be installed.

        New cars come with normal centering and self-propelled guns optimized for it.

          Sergey, what do you think about this, how true is it:

          "Pilots refuse to serve in combat units, preferring civilian airlines
          Due to the imperfection of the payroll system, the Russian Air Force began to lose young personnel. A source in the Air Force told Izvestia that out of 80 young pilots who entered the Air Force combat units last year, almost 60 have already begun the procedure of dismissal, without having served in the army for a year. If the situation does not change, by 2015 the army will have lost almost 70% of combat pilots.

          The pilots themselves explain that they were deceived with money and deprived of the opportunity to fly.

          - Last year, when we graduated, we were promised that from January 1, 2012 we will receive 100 thousand rubles each. In reality, they received about 60 thousand rubles. And now we have also changed the flight rate: now, if we do not fly 100 hours, we will receive 37 thousand in our hands. I’d better go to Aeroflot, ”the pilot of the Su-25, who is now passing the air flight commission before dismissal.

          He explained that 70% of a combat pilot's salary is a bonus "for special conditions of service" and a bonus "for the conscientious and effective performance of official duties." They are credited only to those who have fulfilled the established norm of flying hours per year. And from January 1, 2012, this norm was 100 hours per year for front-line aviation pilots. This is exactly how much it is necessary to spend in the air for everyone who flies on combat "dryers" and "MiGs" - Su-27, MiG-29, MiG-31, etc.

          At the same time, if it is not difficult to meet the norm for pilots of transport aircraft carrying out 2-3 hours in one flight (for IL-76, Tu-154 and other transport planes, the norm is 140-150 hours, this is 50-60 flights), then for pilots - fighters who spend in the air only 20-30 minutes per flight to fly 100 hours need to make 200 sorties.

          - Even if you count by the hour a day, it needs to fly 100 days a year. But nobody lets us fly so often, ”the lieutenant admitted.

          The commander of one of the long-range bombers' squadrons explained to Izvestia that it had been the practice to keep youngsters out of the Air Force since the difficult 1990s, when there was not enough fuel and serviceable aircraft (often the regiment had no more than 2-3 serviceable aircraft). Now, due to the shortage of young people, the aces are earning money "

            Sergey, what do you think about this, how true is it:

            When this new order was issued to increase the raid standards for the flight personnel of the Air Force aviation, we discussed this topic in detail, where I immediately said that they are, firstly, simply not feasible for many types, because. Remember the speeches of our superiors who rejoiced. that we now have almost a triple supply of pilots ???
            so of course, to disperse as many regiments, to fire so many, but still there was a lot left, and even then I said that it would be ... trouble, well, all the more so. when the order and concretization of the allowances came out, it became immediately clear what would happen .. .hat.

            For what I got ... well, you read what nicknames!

            This is what place you had to think about. What would practically level the raids of strategists and transporters with fighters and helicopters ???

            Therefore, the day before yesterday, I posted two pictures of the Su-27UB pairs that went to the factory because they knocked out the entire resource, but the next pair was the same ... it crashed accidentally in Chelyabinsk due to engine failure, because the equipment is not iron.

            So according to the logic of things, everything happens as it should happen, this is the technical side of the issue.

            Well, moral ... we did not have this, in the first Chechen so at all ... 5 months did not pay, it is true that they returned everything, but ... the families ate what they gave in stores on record, Well, we .... I will not tell ... but no one was going to quit ..... then we ourselves ..... in a "voluntary-compulsory" order .... reformed!

            I wrote the same thing about it!

            Here, in principle, as it is ...... but further ... it will only get worse, because. the old people will still quit, but there is no youth!

            Well, I already wrote about this!

    As far as I know, until the 15th year there will be 48 fighters, after which 48 more will be purchased. The serial purchase itself will be from the 13th, which means that it’s so bad
    8 units-13 16 units-12 and 24 units-15th year. The question is it turns out that from a period of 16 to 20, the speed of construction will be reduced

    I am familiar with such methods not by hearsay.
    There is one task of saving money. And the defenses of nevermind.
    It is a pity that young people want to fly and serve.
    When will these insatiable faces strangle them from this uncontrollable greed for money?
