Fighters of the air wing "Admiral Kuznetsov" will be attracted to combat duty in the Arctic

30

Pilots of individual fighter aviation regiments belonging to the wing of the Admiral Kuznetsov heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser will be on combat duty to protect air lines in the Arctic. Reported by "News" with reference to sources in the Ministry of Defense.


According to the publication, the military department decided to include pilots of individual ship fighter aviation regiments (OKIAP) on the schedule of combat duty on the Novaya Zemlya archipelago and other Arctic airfields during the repair of "Admiral Kuznetsov".

The Ministry of Defense believes that this innovation will allow OKIAP pilots to maintain experience, while the use of carrier-based aircraft, coupled with MIG-31 interceptors, will provide better coverage of the country's northern borders.

It is emphasized that serving at the Arctic airfields does not mean the termination of planned training of deck aviation pilots on the NITKA simulators in the Crimea or Yeisk, especially since combat duty in the Arctic, according to the Ministry of Defense, is carried out on a one-month watch.

The test site in Crimea will not replace the experience of real combat service in extreme arctic conditions. We have already had precedents when, due to the lengthy repair of the cruiser, its air group had to be recreated practically from scratch. (...) flying in the Arctic is also extremely difficult

- explained the military expert Vladislav Shurygin.

    And what was the air wing doing before? Why earlier, even when the ship was put on repair, they did not cut their new, albeit temporary, place of service?

      In general, they were engaged in:
      service at arctic airfields does not mean termination planned training

      It's just that in addition to training, they will also carry combat.

        For which this is forever a thrifty business gutarit. What did the pilots suffer during these 2-3 years? There, as I understand it, the Elite gathered! One and a half times in 3 years of exercise, the rest of the time Freebie, TAVKR or for repair or modernization or at the bank.
        Now it is clear that they were guilty, they were exiled to Novaya Zemlya.

      on leave without pay and length of service were sent as janitors.

      this "watch" means only one thing - HAND-WU MO DO NOT NEED SEA WING AND TAIL. this is about the need to build 10 AB.
      to build-in Av it is necessary to enter through the reception of Deripaska and Alekverov - they need to defend overseas possessions --tody - ah, if not - oh .. fly to NZemla and Spitsbergen.

      Scheduled flights from the shore. On the NZ the link will "sunbathe" (the flight plan is the same as in the PPD, other conditions).
      Formal "strengthening" with the aim of "patching holes" in a potentially dangerous direction.
      Indirectly - a sad tendency (for how long the air steamer will be "pickled" at the shipyard - xs).

      At least - "was engaged in combat training and maintenance of flight skills."
      It seems that this unique regiment was simply not left without attention from the preparation of the country's Air Force.

    It's high time, especially since Kuzya most likely will not return, so let them fly from the coastal airfield .. and the planes will be more intact and the power will benefit

      The sect of witnesses to the construction of an aircraft carrier from such a state of affairs can catch a seizure wink

      In general, if we read between the lines, it seems that the return of Kuznetsov is either not planned in the coming years, or is not planned at all.

          Duc is beautiful! This is the main argument of the Morephiles ... When asked why? Always an incomprehensible bleating .. Now, during the construction of the SP-2, the situation at sea is heating up and it seems that the Baltic Fleet should show its necessity, but there is no too great risk of political complications and this is in a very safe confrontation, and after that, how can we talk about some benefit of the fleet in some kind of mythical conflict? The fleet seems to be there, but it cannot be used because losses and losses will exceed any profit .. This is not nuclear weapons when there will be no winners and no one will bring it to this, then there are just a million options for the partners, the safety of the gas pipeline is provided differently and the role fleet again in a very distant place, they want to bomb SP-2 in any place and the fleet cannot do anything about it, and like this, with any more serious task on the ocean, the funds are spent a lot of resources are involved, but there is no sense from this and the problem is solved differently..

          I mean why? ISSUE in 30 years that something was built from surface warships with a displacement of more than 5000 tons. Absolutely nothing. Hastily upgrading the BOD and Soviet-built cruisers. Because there are many tasks, and there are simply no ships to patch all these gaps in the sea. With such a pace as the construction of frigates is going on, one can not even hope about some kind of revival of a strong fleet. Therefore, everything that is still capable of performing combat missions is being modernized and sent to the sea. We have no other way at the moment.

      Whence does it follow that the aircraft on Novaya Zemlya are deck-based, as can be understood from your message? It is logical to keep the Kuzi air wing at the Nitka bases in Saki and Yeisk. There, use the resource of these aircraft for their intended purpose: train experienced deck-ships and teach beginners. And flights in the Arctic are necessary for those in any scenario, because the aircraft carrier, it seems, is needed on the Northern Fleet within the framework of the fleet's tasks and basing conditions. It is not correct to write off such a ship, because NATO opponents are openly preparing for the presence of similar aircraft-carrying formations on the approaches to the NSR. Defending this economic zone from the mainland coast is unlikely to be cheaper and possible. I believe that the General Staff calculates such tasks: what will be the result - we will soon see when the program for the development of the Russian surface fleet is published. "Kuzia" was created during the Soviet era, and its tasks were "ocean". Whether it will be useful in the new conditions of confrontation in the Arctic - it seems "yes", otherwise they would not have spent money on its modernization.

    Against the background of the current military-political situation around Russia and its borders, it is stupidity to keep experienced crews and combat aircraft inactive.
    Then, when there are tasks to cover and patrol the borders and territorial waters, you need to use all the resources and opportunities.
    Yes, and the "partners" are watching the intensity of our defensive efforts, and once again think about the ideas of provocations and the sending of reconnaissance aircraft "closer to the Russians."

    When Akella decayed, even the Jackals began to kick him.
    When Amella was young and strong (USSR), even Shere Khan was afraid to contact him.
    The country lost power, the country lost control, the country lost its economy, the country lost its purpose.
    Sea flyers will fly, they will not fly, the steep downward dive will continue.
    However, the pack needs a different leader.

      So the USSR got old, but this does not apply to the Russian Federation. It was Stalin's Red Army that was invincible and legendary, and the SA of the GoMS was an amorphous, multi-ethnic slurry, which showed itself at the decisive moment ... in no way. The army is the main guarantor of the State. If it has not fulfilled its main function, then it is worthless.

    Maybe then we should have analogs of training complexes "in the north"?



    If the thrust-to-weight ratio allows, the springboard will in any case shorten the length of the launch strips, even not for carrier-based aircraft.

      But I directly agree with your proposal.
      One question - in the Arctic, the stripes, those that exist (I was and saw in Tiksi), are already calculated for the Tu-95. There "Bears" regularly land .. "Co-based" airport.
      In the video by Alexander Anisimov "Buran pushed the board to the ground" there are a couple of cool black and blue shots of Tiksi-3.

    These Su-33s need to be upgraded for flight from the deck, or flown in and decommissioned.

    How to correctly designate without offense (for pilots) - the deck (sea) pilot is the elite of air fighters in all psychophysical qualities. Yes, there are Nitka flight simulators, another one is under construction, but these are combat pilots for whom life is flights. The simplest springboard on an ordinary runway? What no experience. The experience of combat duty suggests that we need at least three regiments of carrier-based fighters, three regiments of carrier-based attack aircraft and a regiment of deck-based AWACS. This is all for one aircraft carrier. Each regiment is on duty from a month to three The rest of the time, rest and combat training, or a reserve for combat duty in the same Arctic. There is also anti-submarine aviation, naval reconnaissance aircraft, carrier-based helicopters for various purposes. All this asks for its kind of troops. And there is room to grow, where to make a career - from an ordinary pilot to an admiral in command of naval aviation.
    The main problem is whether we from the generation of Pepsi and bloggers will be able to recruit and train at least one regiment of naval aviation.
