High-altitude interceptors MiG-31BM of the Northern Fleet will control the Arctic from Novaya Zemlya

The MiG-31BM high-altitude fighter-interceptors will cover the Russian borders in the Arctic. According to the press service of the Northern fleet, the aircraft are stationed on the Novaya Zemlya archipelago.


The crews of the MiG-31BM of a separate mixed air regiment of the Northern Fleet took up experimental combat duty to guard the state border on the Novaya Zemlya archipelago

- said in a statement.

The ceremonial ritual of interceding on experimental combat duty took place at the Rogachevo airfield, where the MiG-31BM pilots had already performed combat missions last year. Aviation will control the state border in the Arctic and close the airspace over the Northern Sea Route.

It is noted that on the Novaya Zemlya archipelago, pilots will be on duty together with anti-aircraft gunners. There is an anti-aircraft missile regiment of the 45th Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Northern Fleet, armed with S-400 air defense systems.

In early December 2020, the Pacific Fleet's naval aviation covered the Arctic from the Far East, deploying high-altitude interceptors MiG-31BM at the Anadyr airfield - closer to the US borders. Aircraft crews have already taken up combat duty.

Note that in 2019, the military department announced plans to make all Arctic airfields all-season. Even 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".

      Veterans of 63 GIAP can share their experience with the SAP of the Northern Fleet. While the "barrel" of butter is being smeared on a loaf of bread.
      "Experimental combat" link + pair zrdn - the effect of presence, no more (the same as in Anadyr).

      The north is, of course, quite specific, severe weather plus few alternate airfields. Here is a rather interesting incident with MiG 31

    Aviation will control the state border and close the airspace over the Northern Sea Route.

    The NSR, I think, does not need this too much, but over the waters of the Barents Sea MiG-31 will definitely not be superfluous. So I think the news is quite positive.
    To paraphrase one character of Sapkowski: "To have a MiG-31 over the Barents Sea and not to have a MiG-31 over the Barents Sea, in total we get two MiG-31s" laughing

      Good evening! hi I was always interested ... why on the same Kamchatka, for example, instead of or in addition, at least a squadron of the same Su-30SM or Su-35S is not deployed, why is it MiG-31BM and that's it !? They are not very maneuverable "fighters", they just intercept missiles!

      Rumors about the lethal danger of "radiation backgrounds" are greatly exaggerated. People and animals have been living in the Chernobyl zone for a quarter of a century and they feel good.

    Interestingly, we have about 250 of them in the videoconferencing system. different modifications, how many BM were placed on Novaya Zemlya?

          If the Northern Fleet, then the MiG 31 BM from Monchegorsk (there are two full-fledged squadrons of the MiG 31 BM). And surely on Novaya Zemlya, two sides were placed in the duty link and two in reinforcement.
          For now, that's enough ...

      It was in 2012. In 2013, the then commander-in-chief said that there were about 190 combat-ready vehicles. At the same time, apparently, this number includes conditionally combat-ready, such that theoretically can be lifted into the air, but practically they have been in the joke for a long time.
      Today, presumably, there are 60-80 combat-ready, maybe 100, but this is optimistic

              Under Lavrenty Pavlovich, there were no reconnaissance satellites from which it was impossible to hide the relocation of equipment. Yes, and with social networks, in which anyone is in a hurry to share what he saw and heard, there were big problems

    Russia will still be pulling American frigates and aircraft carriers out of the ice captivity, and looking for US pilots in distress who have jumped from bombers over the North Pole. Russia has polar bears trained for this purpose in the Arctic. Before "combat duty" the bears are not fed for a week.
