While the Russian fighters are in open areas, the Indonesian Su were placed in shelters

Traditionally, Russian combat aircraft, with rare exceptions, stand in open areas, being in line formation in open air “pockets” adjacent to the runway, despite the season and weather conditions. However, a number of foreign users of domestic vehicles prefer to shelter them, if not from enemy ammunition, then at least from the effects of the natural disaster for ease of maintenance.


Indonesian Air Force builds shelters for Sukhoi aircraft at Sam Ratulangi Air Force Base in Manado
- reported in the military department of the country.

As explained, these works, which took 206 days, were carried out as part of the modernization of the fighter base. They are coming ahead of schedule and are already 98% complete. Located at the Sam Ratulangi military airfield, the Su-27/30 are responsible for one of the country's most important theater of operations - the border province of North Sulawesi.

According to the IISS, along with Western fighters, the Su-27SK / SKM and Su-30MK / MK2 aircraft purchased in Russia are in service with the Indonesian troops. They are consolidated into one squadron. The purchase of the Su-35 was also planned, but the leadership of the country and the army, against the background of possible secondary sanctions from the United States and financial difficulties, have not yet demonstrated their final readiness to purchase 4 ++ generation fighters.

And while the majority of Russian Su planes are under the open sky, in Indonesia, fighters are placed in special shelters.

    consists of the Su-27SK / SKM and Su-39MK / MK2 aircraft purchased in Russia.

    And I'm curious, the "author" of this miracle of text himself read his work, not to mention editors, proofreaders ...
    Or is this considered overkill on this site?

    In the south, it is generally customary to make a roof wherever possible. For their rain is not like our rain. It is not for nothing that the phrase "tropical rain" has become a household word in our language. And the sun shines with them well, not at all affectionately.
    I remember I really liked the covered sidewalks-galleries, by the way, it would also be appropriate here. And not so much from rain as from snow, so that there was less ice.

    O_O Su-39? Somewhere in a parallel universe ... But in general, good fellows are really more convenient to serve not in the open air ...

      Well, yes, the modification of the Su-25 is the Su-39 (Su-25TM, the factory name is T8TM), a machine that was planned as a replacement / addition to its predecessor, but never went into production.

    a number of foreign users of domestic cars prefer to shelter them
    Correctly and do what I wish for the rest.

    And are there any agreements on the topic of tents with Americans, for the convenience of controlling the number and location.? So our planes are freezing in the rains, and amerskie ones are warming up under the sun.

      I think, using the closure of the "Open Skies", it's time to close the aircraft for the "view" from the sky. Pun)) ...

      Damantsev would write: Su-39MK / MK2 with 2 turbojet engines P-195 with thrust of 4300 kgf each, equipped with SUV 25-T "Voskhod", as well as round-the-clock automatic sighting system "Shkval-M". With the option of installing an overhead radar 3-cm range "Spear-25", SOEP "Dry cargo", etc. etc.

        Yes, it's time for you to take away the laurels. The stylistics is ready.

          Oh. leave ... I remembered for a while, while typed ... Then I remembered again and went for the reference book. While I filled this small piece, I got tired. And what is it like for Damantsev to print all this ... What a job ...

    In Russia, good owners try to store their harvesters in a hangar or under a shed, and planes for many millions of dollars go out in the open air? I thought for a long time there were special technologies for surface coatings, even if not stealth.

    The open-air parking of VKS aircraft is a shame for Russia.

    An airplane worth a good chunk of gold stands out in the open. Isn't it stupid? We must ask our military leaders

    Yes, that don’t say, but we clearly lack frugality both in terms of military equipment and in life in general.

    But it seems that not so long ago there was news that things are changing for the better and hangars are now being built in large quantities.

    The bases of army aviation in the Southern Military District are already equipped with covered hangars for aircraft (though not all bases).
    But here's the fact that all aircraft are on the central lock in a row like in 1941 ........ I'm not very nice ((((. Such history must be remembered and studied

        What is this for? At 41, aircraft were bombed, standing in a row without locators. Today it is enough to sit in the bushes of an aircraft controller with a designator.

          This is what?
          - at what distance will the country's air defense detect the approach of attack aircraft?

    Sorry for the birds. Here you try to put the car in the garage on a dry floor so that it doesn't get wet again ... This is called the absence of the owner. When it's not yours, don't mind ...

    the author, so what did he want to say that "in England, guns are not cleaned with bricks"? Duc therefore built these "shelters", because the local in the bummer technique cover, and not because "there are pro-salipolymers in the rashka." And they will write off the aircraft that is not in the hangar, but the one that costs more than flies.
