25

The Ministry of Defense continues to work on the Arctic airfields, preparing them to receive strategic missile carriers. Major General Igor Churkin, Chief of Staff of the Air Force and Air Defense Army, said that the Nagurskoye airfield on Alexandra Land underwent a corresponding reconstruction.


The Arctic airfield Nagurskoye completed reconstruction last year, a new runway 3,5 km long was built and put into operation there, which makes it possible to receive strategic bombers, in particular the Tu-95. It is possible that the Tu-160 too, since according to Churkin, the airfield is capable of all-season receiving all classes of aircraft. Previously, the airfield was operated only in the winter.

The Nagurskaya airfield is located on the Alexandra Land island of the Franz Josef Land archipelago, next to the northernmost Russian military base "Arctic Trefoil". The tactical group of the North is deployed on the island. fleet.

Churkin explained that currently the Northern Fleet is also practicing the use of fighters from Arctic airfields. At the Rogachevo airfield of the Novaya Zemlya archipelago, long-range MiG-31 interceptors are on experimental combat duty. This airfield, together with Nagurskaya, is used for the watch of Russian fighters in the Arctic region, fighters often rise to "intercept" foreign aircraft over the Barents Sea and near the Kola Peninsula.

    The restoration of airfields, military bases, border detachments, all this restores the combat readiness and combat effectiveness of the Armed Forces. The conditions of service in the Arctic are extreme, but the borders of Russia need to be protected there too.

      Living conditions are difficult, and the Russian is accustomed to this, but the places are beautiful.

        You begin to appreciate the beauty of the places where you served, especially in places with a harsh climate, after years, having eaten enough of the fruits of "civilization" (traffic jams, dirty air, a lot of people rushing about their business, lack of close relationships with housemates, etc.) ) yes
        During the period of service, you notice beauty sporadically, you do not appreciate the silence, clean air, friendly relations with ALL the inhabitants of the garrison, but you dream to get out to civilization as soon as possible, where there is hot water from the tap and asphalt on the roads

          So I wanted to say the same thing. But it's easier for me, I grew up on the wild steppes of Transbaikalia, and I did not experience the "pleasure" of a bath and a warm toilet in the apartment. But the beauty of the North and the attitude of people are the most beautiful.

        Are you used to it? I just mean that the years have already been enough ... it's already difficult, so I moved to more comfortable Siberia. Again, are you accustomed? It's easy to say without living where over 50. Now only in the summer to hunt there.

          I was accustomed, but for 50 years I lived in different conditions, although not much better either. Although now I have also begun to get used to the heat, I will not get used to the bathroom, I go to the bathhouse in the country.

      -the aerodrome is capable of all-season receiving all classes of aircraft.
      Accordingly, the "heavyweights" of BTA.

      In Soviet times, we never sat down on Nagurskaya. The DA had its own airfield on Graham Bell Island, which was safely destroyed. So this is not recovery at all, but assimilation of money. And Alexandra Land itself is very close to neutral waters, which is very inadequate for the location of the airfield for YES aircraft.

        Close to neutral waters - this is still the territory of the Russian Federation. And an operational jump, alternate, or long-range aviation (VTA) aerodrome is necessary to ensure the safety of flights in the Arctic. So what about the assimilation of money (read as "cutting" the budget), you got excited the fastest.

          Yes, I do not argue. Only in Soviet times, any airfields for strategic missile carriers (not to be confused with long-range bombers) were built no less than 500 km away. from the external border of the state.
          And again - why build if there was an airfield?

    If the CIA or the Pentagon reads an article about this airfield and carefully examines the photo, the howl will be such that we will hear in Russia. In the Arctic, the American company TEREX, a manufacturer of construction and road equipment, helps to keep the forces of the United States and NATO at gunpoint. I checked this frame from the film. about the airfield on Aleksandra Land Island. Here are the American sanctions, they saw these sanctions in their grave when they smell $$$.

      They will read it in their media, they were given an excursion to the base, although they showed what could be shown. They also pointed out that ensuring peace and security in the Arctic is the most important state. the task of the Russian Federation is entrusted to the Federation Council. The complex was visited by 30 media representatives from the UK, Germany, Spain, Japan, the United States, France and China:

    Able is capable, but warm it up after a day of parking time and lift it into the sky .. that is the heroism of the Polar Aviation.

      Strip 3.5 km !!! , keep it up, this is a real Vlad in the defense of Alexandra Land, a large island, you can build a couple more takeoffs, although it is in the north, it's all cheaper, unlike the aircraft carriers about which some are so persistently writing to us here ...
