Su-34 and Su-35 will go to the Arctic: the Ministry of Defense intends to test aircraft in the Arctic

The Russian Defense Ministry has decided to test various types of aircraft in Arctic conditions. Reportedly "News" with reference to the military department, the Su-34, Su-35 and Be-200 will be tested.


According to the publication, in 2021, Su-34 front-line bombers, Su-35S fighters and Be-200 amphibious aircraft will be tested in the Arctic. The check should show the readiness of these aircraft to operate in the Arctic and Northern Sea Route. Most likely, the issue of placing these aircraft on combat duty in the North along with the MiG-31 interceptors will be considered.

It is emphasized that the main attention during testing will be given to the computer and navigation equipment of the aircraft.

(...) in severe frosts, difficulties are possible, in particular with liquid crystal displays. Weapons control also relies on computers, and these systems will need to be thoroughly tested in northern latitudes. Another important point - in the Arctic, navigation equipment works somewhat differently due to the proximity of the pole, so the pilot must make the necessary corrections

- explained the honored test pilot Colonel Igor Malikov.

According to the plans of the Ministry of Defense, in the near future a subdivision of Su-34 bombers stationed at the Shagol airfield in the Chelyabinsk region will go to the Northern Fleet. There are also plans to send the Su-35 to the North, but the timing has not yet been announced. For that, it is known that tests of the Be-200 amphibious aircraft have already begun on Franz Josef Land.

Note that at present, the Russian military department pays great attention to strengthening the defense of the Arctic. Airfields are being restored in the Arctic, and MiG-31s ​​are on alert. In March, for the first time, MiG-29K carrier-based fighters from the 100th naval aviation regiment were involved in experimental combat duty on Novaya Zemlya.

    There is nothing to do without warm hangars for parking and maintenance in the North of modern aviation.
    Only if from the middle lane by air with refueling.

      In Alaska, the Americans have an airbase - apparently we need it.

        You might think that we have no airbases in the North ??? request
        It's just that much more of them are needed - these are the Americans in the Arctic in Alaska alone and go out - and we have the Arctic: from Murman to Chukotka !!! fellow

          Russia has only about a hundred Su-35s and about 130 Su-34s! This is a meager number of aircraft for a huge country and also for demonstrating power abroad, for training centers and aerobatic teams ... Will they be distributed one or two at a time? Although it is known that the division of a smaller squadron is not provided for long-term basing outside the airfield location! Remember the movie about the tank, whose license plate was repainted to create the illusion of a large presence! The planes are minuscule, and the sea rattles about them !!! It's like with the MiG-35, you needed 4 for testing, but only 3 were able to do it? Shameful somehow!

      Here, in general, everything is more interesting. If you believe what is written, then the aircraft were adopted without testing in the northern regions of the country. I wonder how this could happen? Or there were tests, but then why the article? Or are they currently undergoing tests for combat use? Or is it just a planned preparation of the flight crew for flights in the north? Or will the possibility of a quick transfer of aviation to the North be tested? Moreover, it is testing, not testing, because the latter is absurd in aviation. As for hangars, in our climate they are needed almost everywhere, just in the north the cold period is longer.

        Some kind of noodles.
        A military LCD display, like any other aircraft unit, has an operating temperature range of -50C to + 50C. Why test them?
        Or did Comrade Colonel burn down the entire office, and LCD displays are not "military" at all, but "household" ones?

      1. Last year, on Alexandra Island, the length of the runway was increased from 2,5 km to 3,5 km and laid out with concrete slabs. This will make it possible to receive any type of aircraft. In fact, the airfield has become year-round.
      2. The airfield on Kotelny Island has also become "all-season".

      In Siberia, frosts are not weaker than the polar ones, and open-air aircraft are successfully operated.

        To operate - yes, but to service, prepare for flight, repair?
        Everyone is ready to fly, and are you ready to turn the nuts in the wind and in the cold?
        It's such a thrill - hanging bombs in a blizzard!
        Quite another matter - rolled out of the hangar and flew.
        As I understand it, flights should be regular, not occasional.

          The concept of exploitation includes those. service.
          For 25 years of service in the aviation of the KSF, I screwed these nuts on the very ... And in my specialty I had to twist small screws when it was impossible to do this with gloves. In any weather, without any hangars. And no one asked whether we were ready to "twist them in the wind and in the cold". It was necessary. And we fulfilled our task.

            In military schools and military representatives there are people who do not have the slightest idea about aviation and its operation! The colonel in the school and in the scientific center, sitting on a warm chair, and not responsible for anything, does not even pull on the major on concrete! And how many of these clever useless fools, who do not know how to do anything and who do not know anything, have so many ambitions !!! This practice has passed from the USSR to Russia! A new organizational structure in the Air Force was introduced only before the collapse of the USSR! The technical squadrons differ very favorably from the technical squadrons! Interestingly, this system has survived? I implemented this system on the Su-24, and was very pleased!

    For work on sea or ground targets, only the Su-34. Radius, payload, APU, two pilots, less physical stress on the crew, a large range of ASPs, reinforced landing gear.

    When I was still an engineer, all military equipment a priori had to work from -50 to +50.
    And now that the equipment did not even bother to check for operability?
    And this aircraft is already 10-20 years old.

      Isn't a jet plane operating at altitude by definition supposed to operate at -50 with all the attendants? It's only about the infrastructure for the base.

        when the plane reaches the altitude, it already has a warmed up and working engine.
        and he begins to work on Earth, where the temperature is usually above zero (well, in any case, it is sooooo rare when for minus 50)

      I am not an engineer, but I think that working and being maintained and serviced are different things ... It is necessary to create an infrastructure so that the equipment does not work to the limit, in harsh conditions, but with the greatest possible comfort ...

    The worst thing in the Arctic is constant magnetic storms .. radio interference, many devices go crazy .. And cars that almost reach the stratosphere should not be afraid of 50-60 degrees of frost a priori .. Something garbage in the article written .. The fact is that the Arctic airfields must be equipped with normal warm hangars and parking for equipment .. And on the ground in the Arctic, the main problem is not severe frosts, but the strongest winds carrying tons of snow .. not beautiful and fluffy, but microscopic ice , capable of hiding in any crack and hole .. and there is a problem with the technique. - the snow huddled in the cracks sometimes melts and then freezes, expanding and breaking structures, clogging up pipelines.

    Strange, but what have not been experienced until now, did not know that we have the Arctic? Some kind of childish babble. In my opinion, anyone understands, you create equipment, so it should be suitable for operation throughout the country, and not only ours. fellow
