Refueling of Russian Aerospace Forces aircraft at high speed is shown

In the Southern Military District, joint exercises were held by the crews of Il-78 long-range refueling aircraft aviation and fighters and bombers of the Air Force and Air Defense Association of the district. This was reported by the press service of the Southern Military District.


Reportedly, Il-78 tankers, Su-30SM fighters, Su-24 and Su-24M front-line bombers took part in the exercise. Aircraft crews practiced refueling in the air, taking off from different home airfields. It is noted that refueling of all aircraft was carried out at an altitude of more than five thousand meters and at a speed of about 600 km / h. Of particular difficulty was the fact that the distance between the refueling aircraft and the aircraft being refueled at the time of refueling had to be no more than 30 meters.

Refueling was carried out at an altitude of over 5 meters and a speed of about 600 kilometers per hour.

- said in a statement.

Video TC "Star":


The exercises took place both in the daytime and at night. When refueling at night, the pilots used additional lighting, which was installed both on the aircraft being refueled and on the Il-78 refueling aircraft.

The press service stressed that refueling in the air is one of the most difficult elements of flight training. Pilots who own this element significantly increase the combat radius of their aircraft, thereby performing missions at a great distance from their main bases.

    At high speed? lol
    I always thought that the flight speed was limited by the capabilities of the tanker. Or someone has managed to overclock the transport to supersonic? A star is such a star ...

      On the Internet, I found that under normal conditions, refueling is carried out at speeds of 430-450 km / h.
      That is, the speed of 600 km / h, from this point of view, is really great. In a sense, more than the usual refueling rate.

        Operating speed when refueling: IL-78 430-590 km / h

          That's right ..... only 600 km / hour of instrumentation ... this is under the limit for the IL-78 wink ... and for the Su-24 (and M including) .. and the 550 instrument panel is very close to the minimum permissible (according to the Airplane Flight Manual) ... so you are spinning ... like on a comb wink

            Refueling from IL, 600 km / h is a lot for him, if refueling from his own tanker (Su-24), then it is normal.
            Always adjusted to IL, speed 500 km / h

        This is the maximum permitted refueling speed.

        Watched on the wrong internet wink
        There are two modes of refueling - for small and large aircraft, with the type of aircraft and its Gpol. fact taken into account.
        For small 450-500 km / h, for large 550-600 km / h.
        It is no longer possible ... the muddy trail increases and the cone will fluctuate with such an amplitude ... that you will not get into life.
        The most important thing is that they forget to point out that a decrease in the values ​​of these speeds leads to forced piloting at high angles of attack, or a "transition" to a takeoff and landing configuration ... but all this leads to the approach of 2 modes, ie. approaching the stall mode. crying

    I also see the Su-34, well, 600 km / h for the Il78M is a great speed for "feeding" the "kids".

    Who wrote this nonsense?
    For refueling, Il-78 tankers, Su-30SM fighters, Su-24 and Su-24M front-line bombers reduce their speed to 600 km h

    I always believed that for refueling in the air, it is not the speed of the aircraft that is important, but the refueling time ... Apparently, this is not so ... crying

    After the Il-78 overcame the supersonic barrier, two front-line Su-24 bombers quickly joined them for refueling! good

    Probably the same ones who today in the news release of the central military TV channel, commenting on this video, said that aircraft were refueling ... Long-range aviation. lol

      Colleague hi ,
      The main thing is to blur out the main thing with the media that # doesn’t have an anonymous. It doesn't matter what is out of place and not true. smile

    And I'm not surprised - just tired. When - the namesake of an official, being an adviser to the president, makes a proposal to limit the validity of diplomas - how's that? By the way, there is no reaction on the site. Let's discuss it with you, in public, if the site's management lacks courage! To publish all sorts of garbage, like - how is Scotland going to live with England ?! Are you ashamed, Mr. Smirnov? sad
