The MiG-31BM interceptors of the Pacific Fleet naval aviation were transferred to the Anadyr airfield - closer to the US borders

Russian high-altitude fighter-interceptors MiG-31BM marine aviation The Pacific Fleet took up combat duty on air defense at the Anadyr airfield - closer to the US borders.


The Pacific Fleet has strengthened the aviation grouping in the Arctic zone by deploying high-altitude fighter-interceptors MiG-31BM naval aviation at the Anadyr airfield fleet... Aircraft crews have already taken up combat duty.

Currently, the aviation unit is working out the issues of interaction with ground-based air defense systems when performing tasks as intended.

- said in a statement.

It is specified that in order to accommodate the crews of the MiG-31BM fighters, at the airfield, work has been completed on the improvement of the premises intended for the accommodation, rest and nutrition of personnel when they are on round-the-clock combat duty for air defense.

Note that last year the Ministry of Defense announced plans to make all Arctic airfields all-season. Earlier, in 2016, it was announced about strengthening the air defense of the Arctic and the return to this region of the high-altitude interceptors MiG-31 and MiG-31BM as elements of air defense. According to the plans of the military department, the MiG-31 will serve in the North until a new high-altitude interceptor appears, which will replace the "thirty-first".

        Well, finally! The guys from Anadyr wrote to me, guys with big stars came and said, I didn't believe in the base. In less than thirty years, Humpback destroyed an air defense aviation regiment there.

      In Russia, in general, there is a lot of space and the borders are immense. So there is a need for interceptors not only to protect the Arctic.
      According to the plans of the military department, the MiG-31 will serve in the North until a new high-altitude interceptor appears, which will replace the "thirty-first".

      I hope it will be so. The MiG-41 is needed as a new generation interceptor. Again, new technologies, industrial development.

        And what does the same Su-35 not suit?
        Range?

        Altitude?
        Armament?
        The same R-37 is integrated into the Su-35 armament.
        Or at worst, is the Su-57 bad for such a role?
        The interceptor, of course, does not need stealth, but the radar is more advanced.
        Or the same Su-35 with a radar from the Su-57 ...
        So why sculpt a new glider? New plane?
        To load KB MiG?
        Why is this zoo among the troops?

        The development of a new high-altitude high-speed interceptor will result in a huge amount, there will be few purchases for air defense (200 - 300 pieces at most), such a specific product will not be exported for sure.
        And?
        Where to write off losses?
        It would be better to take care of the new modification of the Su-34 for the MRA - this is really the highest need.

          The fact that this is just an improved version of the Su-27. In addition, in terms of the performance characteristics necessary for an interceptor (first of all, speed), the Su-35 is inferior even to the MiG-31BM, I'm not even talking about the version with the MiG-41, which in theory it all the more The Su-35 is about here and now, an aircraft for patching holes in the ranks of the Aerospace Forces after the well-known events of the 80-90s of the last century. The MiG-41 is, in theory, a machine of the new time, a step forward. Naturally, it is better to rely on the machine of the future than on the Su-35, the potential development limit of which has actually been exhausted. If things do not go well with the MiG-41, then at the worst, the second stage Su-57 can be used as an interceptor, but not the Su-35. no, don't get me right, this is a machine of the present and we cannot rely on the present, and not on the future, otherwise we will lag behind for the umpteenth time. Now many countries are relying on their fifth generation fighters (even China, India, Japan, South Korea / Indonesia, Turkey, Iran), not to mention the numerous exploiters of the F-35, but will we rely on the Su-35? ...
          It would be better to take care of the new modification of the Su-34 for the MRA - this is really the highest need.

          Work on the Su-34M is underway. There is information on the Internet.
          And?
          Where to write off losses?

          Those who do not want to feed their military-industrial complex will feed someone else's military-industrial complex, and from this the losses will be even greater, since the prices for foreign products will be exorbitant.

            Have you ever wondered why the MiG-25 and then the MiG-31 needed such a speed?
            3000 kmph?
            And why did the United States never have such interceptors, and the interceptor functions were performed by combatant F-15s?
            Because the MiG-25 was created as a B-70 Valkyrie interceptor!
            Which was never put into service.
            But we have already created our own MiG-25!
            So they exploited, striking everyone with high-speed characteristics at altitude ... And without having goals for them there.
            Therefore, there was much more benefit from the MiG-25 in the reconnaissance bomber version than from the interceptor. In an ordinary air battle, if the first missile salvo was not crowned with success (and there were enough such cases), then he became an awkward victim and could only count on a high-speed separation ... While medium-range explosive missiles had a swing. range 30 - 40 km. , it still gave a chance, but with the advent of longer-range missiles, it was already a sentence ... a missile is always faster than an aircraft.
            Have you ever been to the command post of an air defense unit?
            Are you familiar with the practice of using interceptor fighters as part of a belligerent formation?
            Have you ever witnessed a flight of at least 2500 km / h by YOURSELF ... on the radar screen or on the tablet reflecting the combat situation?
            So, our Nasosensky regiment (near Baku - in the Soviet years) periodically sent individual aircraft along the "high-altitude route" (20 m, speed 000 km / h), but (!), It was not interception, but reconnaissance. And for real interceptions, our fighters rarely broke the sound barrier ... and not by much. There was no need.
            From the mid-90s to the end of the 31s, my friend served in Primorye. They had both MiG-27 and Su-2000 there. But during his entire service there, he never saw (and he was the head of the command post of a radio technical regiment) that our fighters (and enemy fighters - the Americans and the Japanese) at least once overcame the 1,5 km / h mark. Usually it was up to XNUMXM.
            You see, tabular data and speeds of real combat use are somewhat different things. Therefore, the speed of a fighter of 2500 - 2700 km / h with a good margin is enough to confidently intercept any of the existing targets.
            ... In the days of the young MiG-31, although the SR-71 was still flying, although it was not in pursuit, it was met / chased / escorted and conditionally intercepted on oncoming and intersecting courses.
            But today there are NO such planes! None of the existing ones can reach speeds of more than 2500 - 2700 km / h. And if it does, then only for a few minutes, because the afterburner mode for a fighter is possible only for 5-7 minutes. request This is the harsh prose of life and flight safety.
            I will repeat once again, in my life I have never seen a fighter (combatant) flight at a speed higher than 2500 km / h (although the MiG-25 could hold this speed for 20-25 minutes).
            And missiles have since become MUCH more long-range and accurate.
            And the Americans have never experienced complexes that they do not have such an interceptor.
            Simply because neither we nor they had a truly supersonic bomber, with a cruising speed of 2 - 3 M.
            Therefore, they removed most of the MiG-31 from service (for storage). And they began to return not from a good life, but because circumstances forced us to URGENTLY revive our defenses (by that time, foreign partners had become so insolent that they demanded that Putin hand over ALL the available nuclear weapons to them!). So they dragged everything that was into the system.
            Including the MiG-31.

            But the ravings about the "new MiG-41 interceptor" began only later, when the MiG Design Bureau lost the defense order of the Sukhoi Design Bureau and offered them for good ... there is nothing ...
            The MiG-35 is still with an incomprehensible status and they do not want to take it into service ... The military does not want to. It's just that heavy fighters are more in line with today's requirements.
            So they came up with a story about the "desperately needed interceptor" ...
            But in the troops he is NOT NEEDED!
            And even the Su-57 is superfluous for the role of an interceptor - the speed and armament of it, like that of the Su-35, the price is 1,5-2 times more expensive, the operation is more difficult ... And the stealth options and internal weapon bays are rather a minus than a plus ...
            It is for the INTERCEPTOR.
            In the United States now, as interceptors (for the Air Force of the National Guard - the role of our air defense), they ordered ... F-15 (!!!). Yes, in X version. But with the same airframe and slightly increased engine power ... up to 12500 kgf (like the old Su-27).
            Note, not the F-35. smile
            Not F-22. smile
            And not even ... a promising 6th generation fighter. lol
            And the good old, proven F-15. yes
            Do you have any idea why?
            Because it’s better not.
            The 4th generation in general turned out to be the most successful and long-lived - almost the limit of aerodynamic efficiency and power density of the engines was reached.
            And all these games with stealth ... these are games "to exhaust and demoralize the enemy", while the real benefits of all these options are not so much.
            The special geometry and radio-absorbing coatings, of course, reduce the radar signature, but at the same time being extremely capricious to temperature extremes and thermal loads ... they do not allow, without prejudice to it, to develop a speed above 1,5M for SEVERAL minutes. lol Well, why would they then "cruising supersonic"? smile
            What was the whole vegetable garden for?
            In order to realize that aircraft with such a coating must remain subsonic ... and cruising supersonic is now the lot of ... aircraft with the most common - classic for the 3rd - 4th generation glider.
            Like this . yes
            Therefore, do not be smart with the idea of ​​a "new" interceptor, and do not listen to any swindlers and amateurs.

              It is rumored that the Americans are developing the SR-72, something like a strike spacecraft. This is where the MiG-41 will find its use.

                These are all rumors. Besides, the SR-72 is a possible UNMANNED supersonic reconnaissance drone. For him, the S-400 is enough. Yes, and from the rocket of existing fighters (MiG-31, Su-35) he will not get out (there will be no one to twirl). It is doomed on oncoming and oncoming intersecting courses. Perhaps they will let him along our (and not our) borders, like his predecessor SR-71, which never violated our border ... but the air defense was disturbed and kept in good shape.
                And why should a non-existent fighter be used against a non-existent target?

                  No, this is not just a rumor, but a real project. Replacing the SR-71. And we need a MiG-41 to counterbalance.
                  The SR-72 is a promising hypersonic drone designed to conduct reconnaissance operations and replace the SR-71 Blackbird reconnaissance aircraft.


                  A working version of the SR-72 is planned to be created by the end of 2020. In July 2017, the device was tested at the test site in Palmdale (California).


                  Features:

                  Flight altitude - up to 70 km.;
                  Maximum speed - 7350 km / h (6M) - not the limit for this scheme;

                  Main engine - 2 x ramjets for operation at speeds above 4 M;

                  Starting engine - 2 x gas turbine for takeoff and landing;

                  Flight range - 6000 - 8000 km.

                    But our "Zircon" is a very real rocket, it flies, it will soon enter service.
                    So far, all the information about this SR-72 pepelats is bare phraseology, and a certain mock-up (probably intentionally) exposed. This miracle of technology will fly with them ... and we are armed with fifty S-400 divisions, whose missiles are CAPABLE of shooting down maneuvering hypersonic targets.

                      It is not a fact that the MiG-41 will be manned. Rather unmanned, like the S-70 Okhotnik. The SR-72 is not a fantasy. But the actual performance figures may differ from those given by me in the quote.
                      And you are seriously going to raise the fighter (!!!) 70 km?

                      Everything happens for the first time.

                      And also unmanned.

                      The interceptor will not help after launching the same Zircon from a submarine. The time will be too short for a reaction. Under water radars will not help and it is difficult to track down submarines. And after the launch from the Zircon submarine it is too late. Another thing is that SR-72 can be tracked down and for an effective reaction, a MiG-41 is needed to work exactly on SR -72, and not like an air defense missile system - only for long-range missiles fired from the SR-72, since the radius of the air defense system is not so great.
                      Offer this MiG-41 to the Chinese smile

                      For this they can plant. And as you understand, not a radish in the garden.

                        The range of destruction is 250 - 400 km. quite enough to keep our borders intact from high-altitude high-speed targets.

                The MiG-31 is essentially a deep modernization of the MiG-25 in a two-seat version. After Belenko's betrayal, the adoption of the MiG-31 accelerated. And of course, his BRLK was one of his greatest strengths. Although speed, altitude, and armament (R-33 + R-40 + R-60) ... R-33 is our answer to the American Phoenix. They (MiG-31) replaced the Tu-128 in the northern direction, where their merits were fully appreciated.

                What do you know about war and anti-aircraft war?
                Have a personal experience?
                We need types and types of weapons for the WAR, not for parades and beautiful videos and numbers in the table. At the moment we have new fighters 4 ++ (Su-35, Su-30, Su-34), there is / is about to appear in the troops of the Su-57. His (Su-57) was ordered by ONLY three regimental sets (at the rate of 2 squadrons, 12 pcs. Per regiment). To recoup / justify all the costs of its creation, its series must be at least in the hundreds. If another fighter appears (let's say in 10 years), then the Su-57 series will have to be stopped, as soon as it is launched.
                No, take the example of those who know how to count money, while they have orders of magnitude more than we do. For decades, they have ONLY two fighters in the Air Force: the heavy F-15 and the light F-16. When the F-22 proved its financial insolvency, the series was stopped. The not very successful F-35 (the F-35V is so quite successful) is being built in a large series forming a homogeneous park.
                And we, the "smartest and richest" - have a zoo. Which, for the sake of someone's whim, they only want to expand.
                Let them finally start mass production of the Su-57 and build at least 200 - 300 pieces.
                And then make a two-seater version of it, and build another 200 - 300 pieces, in an improved / modernized form.
                And it will be good for everyone for many years, because several hundred new 4 ++ have also been built.
                This is the prospect for 15 - 20 years.
                And there - in 10 years, it will become clear what the next fighter is needed.
                But for the sake of plundering the next R&D budget ... just for this.

                  Only officers left the Strategic Missile Forces in the war that I encountered while serving. Soldiers and sergeants were not subject to ... So, you do not need to poke me with phrases - "what do you know about the war."
                  On the topic - you did not understand my message. I explain: even if this aircraft is ... not needed (which I doubt, because our borders are large, to put it mildly), then during the design and construction of at least prototypes, new technologies are tested and introduced. If it were not for this, you would still be turning the wheel of the long-wave radio and trying to tune "Warsaw", "Paris", etc.

                    I am in the past an officer in the combat directorate of an air defense formation. Back in the days of the USSR.
                    And I know what I'm writing about. And with my comrades, we have long sorted these topics to pieces.
                    Air defense requires COMPLETE fighters capable of accepting maneuverable combat. In fact, interception is a type of flight training for pilots in air defense, and a fighter needs NORMAL.
                    The Su-35 has max. range 4000 km. , with refueling - even more. It can hang out in the air for 5 hours with a full refueling. This is significantly more than that of the MiG-31. So for loitering in the zone, air patrolling, you can't imagine better.
                    The speed is enough for him, the weapon load is 8 tons at 12 knots ...
                    What else do you need for a good air defense interceptor / fighter ?!
                    And this is unification, moreover unification in the training of pilots and technical personnel, the organization of the supply of spare parts and consumables ... yes, for all signs and reasons, this is better. And more correct.
                    And if it is still not so, it will be a crime against the country's defense capability and a waste of the defense budget.
                    And do not be offended for the "war", I am writing from it (from Donetsk), and I also know how the combat control of fighter aircraft is carried out - in our air defense division there was a fighter regiment on the MiG-25 (they were preparing rearmament on the MiG-31). So I'm in the subject.

                      I accept. I have already said that I am for unification. It is really cost effective.
                      I probably can't imagine the concept of air defense. For me, this is: they found a target (ICBMs, Strategists, and other means of long-range destruction), interceptors with weapons of destruction go to distant lines. Shot and left ...
                      am i wrong

                        Just due to the concept, I can't imagine a maneuverable interceptor combat. Not his task.


                        Damn, I'm sorry, I understood you)). Yes, with the existing technologies, and with the existing technologies of the "potential", you can simply finish and unify our latest 35 and 57 for long-range interception. Today it will be behind the eyes. But there are billions of dead presidents being wasted across the ocean, and I believe that not all of this is in vain. That is, when they create something breakthrough, we can be left with our pants down.

                        ICBMs detect early warning systems (strategic attack warning systems): over-the-horizon missile defense radars and warning satellites.
                        Air defense counteracts the air means of attack - combat aviation and the enemy's CD. Interceptions are carried out by air defense interceptors, ZRV (Anti-Aircraft Missile Troops) hit targets with missiles.
                        RTV (Radio-Technical Troops) ensure the timely detection of air targets, the issuance of target designation to the command post of the ZRV and the navigators of the fighter aviation guidance.
                        Combat interaction with RTR (radio-technical intelligence) and electronic warfare.
                        The decision on what means and in what order the targets will be hit (target allocation) and the sectors of responsibility are assigned from the command post of the air defense compound.
                        This is very specific, but understandable.
                        Interceptor fighters are just one of the air defense tools, and whenever possible, this tool should be as effective as possible. The Su-35 is a more effective means than the MiG-31, because it will intercept, identify, and force landing at its airfield more efficiently and more easily.
                        But for high-altitude interception at maximum speed, the MiG-31 is still more effective.
                        But there are no such goals now.
                        Perhaps for now.
                        But the Su-35 will cope with most of the tasks much better.

                        Nothing ?! May I know your raid on the Su-27SM, Su-35 or MiG-31? Please, indicate the raid from the DS for interceptions and escort! And what about the results of WB Sushki and MiGs in the exercises conducted with your participation? How did the strengths / weaknesses emerge?
                        And the mention of the UPS in combination with the RLE of this materiel would also be very handy (that an absolute catachreza is similar in this situation, any warrior during his service so many times reads the word of tasks and tasks and writes that such a bulb as "task" is he won't even write drunk into the smoke, about the rest of the slang and professed description of the air defense interaction, I sob and keep quiet) crying

                        I am in the past an officer in the combat directorate of the RIC KP of the Air Defense Division (a little earlier the corps).
                        Not a pilot. Just one of those that "themselves do not fly and do not give to others."
                        Our business was to control the general air situation, provide jobs for navigators, control the work of the entrusted RTV units, combat interaction with RTR (OSNAZ group), civil dispatchers ... well, and a full-time reconnaissance officer in the calculation.
                        And about the soft sign, I beg your pardon, today I am inattentive - the temperature.

                        And, by the way, during my service, neither the Su-35 nor the Su-27SM were in the project, and our regiment in the Nasosnaya flew a MiG-25. There was also an aircraft repair plant for these MiG-25s in Nasosnaya. They were going to transfer to the MiG-31, but did not have time.
                        The headquarters and command post of the division was in Alat (Baku-84).

      I don't know much about this, but unification is certainly good. The question is that the new generation of interceptors should overlap the existing characteristics of fighters (35th and 57th) in terms of the above parameters, except for weapons (only interceptors are needed). Still, the plane is "specific" IMHO. So I think it's necessary!
      + Yours sincerely.

        Yes, the fact of the matter is that by the 80s, the "specific" MiG-25 was much less convenient to use. He was called a flying ax - heavy, deadly, flies only in a straight line. lol If it were not for the operational inconveniences, the MiG-23 would be much more convenient. And the field of admission to the Su-27 troops ... the troops seriously thought about abandoning not only the MiG-25, but also the MiG-31, except for the northern direction. However, the MiG-31 was then needed as a countermeasure to the SR-71.
        Today, the existing Su-35, Su-30SM, MiG-31 (10-15 years still fly) and the new Su-57 are enough to intercept.
        Nobody needs highly specialized fighters today - they will not have an external market.

      "Zoo" I look at the fashionable word became the "experts". Like they said - and immediately in the subject? But you have an opinion, but how, why not ?. From your opus it is clear that you have nothing to do with fighter aviation, and to your spatial "questions about nothing" aviators and the same air defense personnel have already answered in detail so many times that repetition is at least inadequacy ... Do you want to know the answer? Go to the Aviaforum and talk to the people holding the RUS. If you want foam out of boredom - continue here asking awkward questions to the same "experts".
      P.S. I will not continue the dialogue, to put it mildly, it is not interesting, as well as reading the potential answer, because I represent it practically "to the point", you are not the first advanced zoologist in VO. wink

    MiG-31 will serve in the North until the appearance of a new high-altitude interceptor, which will replace the "thirty-first"

    And there is enough work for the interceptors. Either an American plane or an American drone (this summer). Americans climb everywhere, so it is more expensive to keep loopholes for them.

    There are flying days in a year, 50 days, and the rest is storms ... then snowfalls, fogs. When there is a blizzard, you cannot prepare the take-off, even if you crack it. Yes, and read that in a heavy snowfall, and engines can choke, I do not know how true. But we had a YAK-40 engine to warm up our machines and tractors, cars were warmed up from the exhaust in winter, so they could not start it in heavy snowfalls.

    The SR-72 is not fiction, but the actual performance figures may differ from those given by me in the quote.

    While this is fantastic. If the Americans could reach hypersonic speed in an airplane, even an unmanned one, they would shout about it to the whole world. And besides throwing in a picture (layout) - no information. Will fly (if) in the near future, then we will say that this is not a fantasy. So far - fantastic. About the same level as our S-600, S-700 and S-800 air defense systems, voiced by Zhirinovsky

    There were no mining complexes. Only one battalion of ground launchers was deployed. Nobody will deploy new mobile missiles there. Even during the deployment of the Pioneers, a check was made of the possibility of deploying a PGRK there. At the head of this verification commission was General Kazydub, head of the PGRK of the Strategic Missile Forces. It was proved that it is not possible to fully deploy the PGRK there. What is called money in the wind. As you understand, if the commission was able to prove this to the Ministry of Defense and the Politburo, then it was 1000% sure of its conclusions
