Antisubmarine Tu-142 of the Northern Fleet will be involved in patrolling the Baltic

Long-range anti-submarine aircraft Tu-142 North fleet will strengthen monitoring of the situation in the Baltic Sea. The decision in principle to use Tu-142 for patrolling the Baltic has already been made. Reported by "News" with reference to sources in the Ministry of Defense.


The Russian military department plans to attract long-range anti-submarine Tu-142 aircraft to patrol the Baltic Sea. This decision is being made against the backdrop of more frequent visits by NATO and US ships to the Baltic. Previously, these aircraft from the Northern Fleet mainly patrolled the Atlantic and the Arctic.

The Ministry of Defense clarifies that the task of the aircraft will not be constant patrolling of this water area, the Tu-142 will be involved only in special cases, when necessary. Test flights of Tu-142 over the Baltic have already taken place, pilots of anti-submarine aviation The Northern Fleet was involved in the Ocean Shield 2020 inter-fleet exercises, which took place in the Baltic Sea in July-August.

It is noted that these aircraft, which have undergone modernization, are equipped with modern reconnaissance equipment and an aiming system.

The Tu-142 long-range anti-submarine aircraft was created on the basis of the Tu-95 strategic bomber. The Tu-142M3 version was put into service in 1985, was serially built until 1994, at present the aircraft are being modernized with the installation of new modern equipment. The maximum flight range exceeds 12 km, the flight speed with a mass of 000 tons at an altitude of 138 meters is up to 7000 km / h. The flight duration is 855 hours. The planes are equipped with means of detecting submarines, as well as missiles, bombs and mines.

      This decision is not from a good life. The airfield on Kos was crushed, the planes were sawn. There is simply no anti-submarine aviation at the DKBF

        hi "She drowned ..." (C) Like many other things. Now "urya-skakuas" of the minuses will stick to you and explain that "with the world on a string ...", ugh, "with outstretched hand" - there are "karasho" and "# vyfsevreti".

        The airfield on Kos was destroyed, the planes were sawn.

        Exactly. Unfortunately. Not otherwise crushed and sawed!

        You're right. But the old men of the anti-submarine Tu-142 remained ONE ESCADRILIA in the North! This is just out ... - are they going to chase her across all fleets now?

          Well, what do you want? Why and who needs coverage of the situation in the North Atlantic, the fleet is increasingly coastal. And here is such an optimistic headline, and even in pursuit it will be possible to write how our planes were scared in the Baltic. It is bitter here not even that there was only one squadron left for the anti-submarine Tu, but that they deliberately threw and framed all the submariners who serve as strategists - they are practically not protected by anyone if they leave the base. Surface fleet? Naval aviation? Anti-submarine forces at least OVR? request
          And what to do with that lighted environment? It's easier to arrange this

        The airfield on the spit could not accept such aircraft (it is for hydro aircraft), but Chkalovsk near Kaliningrad (suburb) 3 years as the runway was modernized for that 160 and that 95 .. you are welcome

        No - this is from the word "AT ALL", or from the word"I think so"? Let's define it! Agree - there is a HUGE DIFFERENCE between these two concepts!
        PS No! God forbid! I'm not even going to say that with Anti-submarine defense (including - Aviation) in the Baltic - just so "super-duper"! I didn't even THINK!

      It's a pity that only remnants of the once powerful MA SF now remain, if I'm not mistaken, SF tu142 only in Kipelovo and the numerical strength there is relatively small, and in addition to the Baltic, they also have areas for patrolling. Of course, I do not pretend to be the ultimate truth, but we used to fly regularly from Soltsy to patrol on Tu22-pair + reserve board, in my opinion it is much cheaper than driving such colossus for patrol, even if it is better to work for their intended purpose, "pick out" the submarine our friends from NATa

            No, it was not. On the Northern Fleet, they were based in Kipelovo 35th PLAD (now the 73rd PLAD is left of it), at the Pacific Fleet 310th PLAD in Khorol, and later in Kamenny Brook. They did not even use Lakhta in the Northern Fleet as a jump airfield. Only Olenya and Severomorsk-1 hi

    Tu-142 in the Baltic - it would be funny if it were not so sad. They were created to work in the Indian Ocean. By the way, it is interesting how the capabilities of the search systems and equipment of the complex have changed since the 1970s. We must make our way to the surrounded Kaliningrad. This will remove many problems. (A problem is a problem that has no solution.)

    Stupid note!
    Now, if the range is 12000 km, then why is the duration 9 hours?
    How is patrolling? Aerial reconnaissance of ships at sea with radar and
    visually? Or search for submarines at the turn or in a given area? Rather
    everything is all chatter and demo flights will be performed
    "to spite the enemies." Will knock out the resource from the remnants of the submarine. Yearning...

      Please note that this is an ANTI-WATER aircraft. One of the methods for detecting a submarine is dropping buoys in the area of ​​its intended location, followed by patrolling this area and receiving a signal from them.
