Russian airbase at Erebuni airfield switched to "Syrian" operating mode

The Russian military base at the joint airfield of the Armenian Air Force and the Russian Aerospace Forces Erebuni began operating in the "Syrian regime". This was announced by the military commander Semyon Pegov, citing sources close to the leadership of the Russian Ministry of Defense.


According to Pegov, Russian fighters from the Erebuni airbase are on duty around the clock. One or two Russian Aerospace Forces fighters are constantly in the skies over Armenia. Being in the air is based on rotation, the flight schedule of Russian aircraft is not advertised for obvious reasons.

The Russian base in Erebuni operates in a "Syrian" regime. According to sources close to the leadership of the Russian Defense Ministry, the Aerospace Forces fighters are on alert in the air around the clock. That is, at least one Russian fighter is constantly in the sky over Armenia.

- reports Pegov.

Voenkor notes that the same scheme is used in Syria at the Khmeyim airbase. Having launched the "Syrian regime" in Armenia, the Russian Aerospace Forces not only provide cover for the peacekeeping columns moving through the territory of the republic and Nagorno-Karabakh, but also provide a certain guarantee of the safety of the local population.

The Russian air base at the Erebuni airfield in Yerevan is part of the 102nd military base stationed in Gyumri. The airbase is armed with modernized MiG-29 fighters, Mi-24P attack helicopters and military transport Mi-8MT.

        Well, at least punishing or preventing it can help.
        The threat of an air strike may well cool hot heads.
        Only you need to use it skillfully.

              Yes, I do not understand these hurray-patriotic enthusiasm - "we will show the Turks! Let the current sunuzza !!" Again chewing gum about "stabs in the back" and other nonsense. And everything is in the background one a Russian fighter jet flying in the Armenian sky. Ukrainianism is kind of straightforward. I am beginning to understand what pegs are for - in the average person you need to maintain a certain degree of enthusiastic idiocy.

                Actually, we're just sharpening the fringes here. Dear. And people do business.
                Well, if the case. Always look at the result. And the result is that order is being established in Karabakh (possibly historical). Moaners will be unmeasured. (as with Syria). But the job is being done. Fighter in the sky. The rest is unknown to us. But.
                Not a single face goes there anymore. And this is a certain result. And the Turks .... The Turks will always be at the door.
                They have their own niche in history.

      Pipeline money is money invested in the construction and operation of trunk pipelines, which implies making a profit from the transportation and sale of the transported product. You probably wanted to say, down the drain. This is also not the case. Money down the drain is the financial assistance of the Soviet Union to various African princes and beggars disguised as communist parties and sympathetic regimes. I think so. And ensuring the security of the base and the Russian peacekeepers is not only necessary, but also necessary, and it is not worth sparing money on it.

        Before that, the base in Armenia lived quietly for itself, but now, after the "success", it switched to martial law. Whose Success?

    What is the mission of one fighter? On duty, they seem to work in pairs .. And here one ... Is it visual observation? around the clock? So other planes are intended for this .. Is it spinning in circles in anticipation of some Bayraktar? The wait is a little expensive .. You can write again: but if we had serious UAVs - you look and would not burn so much kerosene .. He would hang in the sky for 20 hours and hang .. On the other hand, the pilots have flight clocks dripping ... Maybe this is the same "teaser" for some warlike aborigines, like the earlier downed helicopter? Like - but if someone tries to shoot down, then we will hit it with all our strength! ... I would not like to think so ..

      I don’t believe Pegov, but given the size of Armenia, it may be grazing recon drones flying at low altitudes.

      They come as a rule as a link .. a couple and a couple. On command, one can take off ... to fly around an area or to "intercept" a single target ... if the target is a group, then raise a pair ... maybe the option of raising a pair at once - one to a large H, the second in a zone or sector to a small ...

    It is necessary to fly, who argues. Just how to find the golden mean?
    On the one hand, there is an increase in plaque and experience, on the other, a decrease in the resource of engines.

    It is disappointing, but true - Russia, as always, rakes up a heap of problems, mostly alone. And Armenia on the domestic front decides the main question - to be or not to be Pashinyan and what is Russia's fault.
