"Our equipment is one of the best in the world": The Russian Knights Group celebrates its 30th anniversary

The Russian aerobatic team "Russian Knights" is the only one in the world showing aerobatics on heavy Russian Su-30SM and Su-35 fighters. This was told by the commander of the air group Sergei Shcheglov in an interview. TASS.


Today the group "Russian Knights" celebrates its 30th anniversary. It was created on April 5, 1991 on the basis of the 1st Squadron of the Show Center aviation equipment at the Kubinka airfield. Initially, the pilots of the air group flew on Su-27 fighters, in 2016 they were transferred to the Su-30SM, and in 2019 they also received the Su-35.

As Sergei Shcheglov said, the new Russian fighters have become much more comfortable than those produced in Soviet times. If in the days of the USSR the functionality of the aircraft was at the forefront, then Russian designers added comfort. Heated seats and air conditioning appeared in the cab, which greatly facilitates service in regions with cold climates.

Shcheglov praised the Su-30SM and Su-35 fighters on which the group is piloting. According to him, the appearance of these aircraft allowed pilots to work at supercritical angles of attack, significantly expanding their aerobatic capabilities.

(...) The planes are very good, the possibilities are vast, and indeed, our technology is one of the best in the world

- he said, adding that the fighters became easier to control and much more maneuverable.

The group commander said that in 2021 the Russian Knights will perform twice abroad, but did not name the country where the group will go.

      I would add that Russian pilots are the most hooligan in the world !!! And after flying to the limit of the human body and technology .. Often the floors are scrubbed as punishment for hooliganism in the sky .. (just kidding) Happy holiday men, you are the best and Russia is proud of you! Victor let's stand for them .. drinks soldier

        Good preparation and accurate calculation ... this is one thing, but frivolity and hooliganism, in such a dangerous business ... no, no silly bravado is needed.

          Well, Victor agrees, but on the video that I posted this non-flying rainy weather and the risks were huge .. So only hooligans can take risks in life, the rest refuse. After all, the prestige of Russian aviation was at stake there and the risk was justified .. Otherwise, nothing! This is what our aircraft is famous for and especially its pilots piloting on the brink of a foul .. Agree with me Victor and other forum users .. The Russians are not predictable and know how to take risks!

              Naturally, Victor, such risks can only be taken by a professional, otherwise there are a lot of victims and expensive aircraft. hi Young people like looking at them to try to repeat, etc. With such "hot" heads it is necessary to suppress all this harshly. Up to expulsion from the flight crew! negative

          The Blue Angels are flying the F / A-18 Super Hornet, the main US Navy fighter. You need to understand at least a little about the topic before writing.

    "Russian Knights" is our beauty and pride! good
    ... "allowed pilots to work at supercritical angles of attack, significantly expanding their aerobatic capabilities, fighters became easier to control and much more maneuverable" ...
    Such an assessment from a pilot of the highest class is worth a lot!

              I remember such a character of a snake breed, warmed up on the chest of a folk. But
              Today the group "Russian Knights" celebrates its 30th anniversary.
              People have an event, they have something to remember, they have something to be proud of, and we too, I don't understand why this Holoai needs to make toasts holding a glass filled with urine in his hand. Damn, I'm sorry. Clear, the post turned out to be rude.

    I think they need to be transplanted to Su-57. Let these cars drive what is called the tail and mane. Surely this will allow you to quickly identify the flaws of the machine, if any. And for the aerobatic team, these are new opportunities.

        This is an empty statement. Only those who could not buy from the United States bought weapons from the USSR and the Russian Federation. Or it was supplied free of charge.
        How does the aerobatic team demonstrate the capabilities of long-range missile combat with the F-22 or F-35? How can they demonstrate the destruction of small-sized ground targets?
