Rostec handed over to the Russian Aerospace Forces another modernized AWACS aircraft



The Russian Aerospace Forces received another updated A-50U AWACS aircraft. The transfer of the "flying radar" to the troops on the eve was carried out by the concern "Vega" and TANTK them. G.M. Beriev (both enterprises are a structural unit of the state corporation "Rostec").

It should be noted that this is the seventh aircraft received by the Russian Aerospace Forces within the framework of the program for the renewal of the AWACS aircraft fleet. The next A-50U, according to plans, will be ready by 2023.

As for the winged aircraft itself, thanks to the modernization carried out, its functionality has reached a new quality level. Now, according to the developers, the aircraft is capable of effectively detecting fundamentally new types of air objects, as well as tracking a larger number of targets.

In addition, the upgraded "flying locator" received the latest flight and navigation system, and thanks to the A-50U being equipped with modern electronics, including high-resolution LCD monitors, the working conditions of the tactical crew were significantly improved.

Finally, one more important detail. Due to the fact that the modern equipment installed on the aircraft has less weight, the time and range of combat missions have increased.

Recall that the Russian AWACS A-50 aircraft first took to the air in 1978. The Flying Locator was built on the basis of the Il-76 and was mass-produced until 1991.

      One per year.

      Not ! One at a time in 2 - 2,5 years !!
      And there is absolutely no reason to be proud of such a pace!
      The modernization program began in 2008, and since then, together with the head, 7 units have been modernized.
      And the next one will not be earlier than the end of 2023. So by 2024 there will be no more than 8 pieces. modernized. angry
      But at the beginning of modernization, the Air Force / VKS had about 20 pieces. A-50 and in the intervening time it was possible to completely modernize all these sides, and not really straining. But the MoD decided not to strain at all. And this is not hyperbole. They managed to SO organize financing and the very signing of contracts so that a significant number of such aircraft in no case would be in the troops.
      Exactly .
      First, they decided to conclude a contract for the modernization of EACH A-50 separately. Moreover, each next contract was concluded only AFTER (!!!) the delivery of the previous one. And since the modernization involves first dismantling the old equipment, then the glider's fault detection, ordering the contractors a set of equipment for the modernization (which will not scratch with production ahead of time and without payment), and only after the contractors deliver the ordered equipment (and it takes at least a year), the plant is starting to install new equipment. Then complex tests, fine-tuning, delivery.
      As a result, the period of modernization of each such AWACS aircraft cannot be less than 2 years !!!
      It is with such an approximately periodicity that they enter the troops - after 2 - 2,5 years, 1 piece. !!!
      And to launch modernization on a stream, so that at least one aircraft a year can be issued ... it is impossible. request For there is simply NO contract for the following aircraft. And the plant doesn't know if there will be.
      And the contractors will not lift a finger to produce the next set of equipment without a contract and prepayment.
      Cunningly thought up?
      SLEEP ... angry
      And as a result, today there are ONLY 7 units in service (together with the newly arrived one) of such aircraft. angry
      Is it possible with so many AWACS aircraft to wage a war in the air with at least a more or less powerful enemy?
      Which has a modern air force and a sufficient number of such aircraft?
      Not !
      Only a local conflict in a limited theater of operations.
      And who (!!?) Planned this for us?
      Who in our country not only deprived the Armed Forces of such a critically important component of combat command and control, but also with an absolutely disorderly policy of orders and financing brought the Taganrog plant into its present ... depressing state?
      In a normal Country, this qualifies as a CHANGE OF THE HOMELAND!
      But who in our country will give such qualifications to "respected people"?
      We don't throw their own under the tanks.
      Respected people are not given responsibility. request
      Therefore, we will, as ordered, rejoice in what we have.

        Thank you for the detailed analysis, I agree with your opinion, I will add - you also need to take into account that the "youngest" glider is 30 years old, the oldest is 40. And here several questions arise:
        1. What is the remaining resource of those entering the modernization?
        2. Does the modernization include work on the airframe and engine that extend the resource thereof?
        2.a If yes (although I have not heard), how much?
        Hence the final question: with the current rate of modernization (1.5-2 years per board), how many of the existing A-50s will remain to be modernized, which will not, because ... has no sense because of the small residual resource and this very rate of modernization?
        My opinion is that they will be limited to no more than 10 pieces.
        If so, I would like to hope that such a decision was made initially focusing on the serial production of the A-100 based on the serial production of the new Il-79-60

          It is difficult to say what they are doing about the airframe and its resource, because the manufacturer's plant is located in Tashkent and, in fact, has long ceased to exist.
          In the KB, of course, there is documentation, recommendations for extending the resource are being developed.
          But without factory repairs, it is very difficult to extend the service life of such age-old machines.
          Then Taganrog never made these planes, Tashkent made them and now Ulyanovsk makes them.

          As for the glider itself, I think there is a residual resource and a decent one, because these planes flew a little in their lives, they stood more. So when carrying out flaw detection and major repairs, with updating the avionics and replacing engines, it will still be able to fly for a long time. After all, these are transport aircraft, basically, they serve for a long time.
          Quote: FreamiL
          Hence the final question: with the current speed of modernization (1.5-2 years on board)

          No, upgrading each side takes 2 to 2,5 years. The fact is that the modernization program began in 2008, when the lead aircraft A-50U was tested and presented. And for 13 - 14 years they were able to modernize only 6 boards.
          Quote: FreamiL
          how many of the existing A-50s will be upgraded

          There are few of these remaining with the A-50 4 or 5 units. , and taking into account that in 2024 they promise to present the first A-100, they will continue not to modernize, but to build new ones.
          So one or two A-50s will still have time to modernize.
          That is, in total, the A-50U can be in service no more than 8 - 9 pieces.

        There is a nice little AWACS complex "Oko" that stands on Ka-31 helicopters.
        I don’t understand why it is difficult to slightly modify it and install it on the Il-112/114 type aircraft? Or, again, a scourge in the absence of mass production of a platform for such an AWACS?
        For me, from the point of view of electronics and energy, there seem to be no problems - although the power of the TV3-117VK engines of the Ka-31 helicopter (read Ka-29) is not enough, there is a small APU that works when the radiation is at maximum power.

        There will be no such problems in the Il-112/114 airplanes. Just modify the antenna and so on in little detail.
        After all, the helicopter has an insignificant radius and operating time, a small ceiling.
        And even a small plane will have enough of such characteristics in abundance.

          The main difficulty is that these planes do not exist in nature. So it's too early to make plans for them as a base.

          It has already become obsolete and was created for a helicopter and should work in hover mode (mainly. with a "board" on the back.

          And if there is a desire to make an AWACS aircraft in similar dimensions, then it makes sense to immediately design a deck boat, a la Yak-44. The technical documentation in the design bureau should be preserved, and we will take / order the engines for them after the liberation of Zaporozhye, such engines were also installed on the An-70. Such engines, according to calculations, could ensure the takeoff of the Yak-44 even without a catapult - on the same engines from the springboard. There was enough power.

            It should work not only in hover mode but also in helicopter flight.
            Well, let it be outdated. And what, the N001 and N019 on which the Su-30M2 and MiG-29SMT fly are not outdated? Khmelnytsky then production. If it is not advisable there is something else.
            Then such machines as the Il-112/114 in speed do not greatly surpass helicopters, and therefore an AWACS complex with similar characteristics would be suitable.

            Now (even already 15 years ago) Brazil, Spain, Sweden, Israel and others are making similar light-class AWACS aircraft.
            And Russia is not - there is no platform. And for BTA it is also absent in this sense.

              And at a cruising speed of 450 km / h to drag an antenna uncovered by a fairing? Better "board" on the back - though not all-round visibility, but better than nothing.

                  With engines, we have a total byaka, it's a common thing.
                  And as a light AWACS aircraft, the IL-114 is better, when the UAV AWACS matures.

                    Private traders made the platform "Rysachok", they even transferred it to GLITs for testing. But the engines ... They are imported.
                    There are no Russian (Ukrainian) theaters of this class. They are also absent for the Il-112/114.
                    There are helicopter conversions.
                    But fishlessness and cancer ...
                    If there were domestic gas turbine engines for the Ka-226 helicopter, then they could be adapted to the Rysachok. But they don't exist.
                    And private traders do not deal with engines - there is no such base. And frames.

            3. The loss of 1 AWACS, if we rely on its target designation, this is the loss of targets for 10-12 fighters.
            PS: Why am I all about fighters? Because strategists are self-sufficient and their targets are determined by satellites and "maps", and are at ranges greater than the AWACS can afford. Well, bombers (su-34) are the second stage ... The main air superiority.

              everything is simple - in order to carry out accelerated repairs, you need to hire / train personnel, and then ensure their work. The problem is that the contract is drawn up on the basis of labor costs + 20% + 1% maximum. Those. intensification is not included in the project ... and even if the plant recruits personnel to make capital faster, the MO will not go to a meeting and conclude a contract for new cars ... the history of the su-34 showed this very well

                A total of 31 aircraft were produced. It took 13 years to release them. Slightly less than 3 aircraft per year. Yes, not modernization but release from scratch.
                You write about the contract, that you were present at this, is your signature there?
                Can you reveal the truth of what contract was concluded for the construction of a burnt-out corvette if it was built for 8 years. Americans in less time built an aircraft carrier

            What is the difference between the A-30 released 50 years ago and modernized from the E-30 released 3 years ago and modernized?

            I don't even know how to put it mildly for you ... Yes, in the same way as the T-72BM3 from the T-14 ... In the same way that the Su-24 differs from the Su-57 ... The same as the AK-47 differs from AK-12 ... How does the S-125 differ from the S-400 or S-550 ...
            I have the impression that some state strategists are unfamiliar with SOMETHING. They believe that the equipment can work forever and start a multi-year (approximately 6 years) repair of the Admiral Kuznetsov TAVKR in order for it to serve for another 20 years !!! It is clear that there are older ships in the USA, but there are 11 of them !!!
            And this is all against the backdrop of cost savings, when only more gold has been sold (exchanged for paper) over the past two years than mined.
            This is the truth of the situation ...

              Do not spread your thoughts along the tree. A simple question was asked: why is it considered absolutely normal and permissible by safety standards abroad to operate and modernize Sentry-type AWACS aircraft, the last of which was produced in 1992, and for us, the operation of modernized aircraft of the same years of production suddenly becomes unsafe in terms of resource?
              Moreover, their "Sentry" all this time did not stand in hangars, but were actively exploited, including going through the wars in Yugoslavia and Iraq. And the "Sentry" are not some isolated relics of the past, living out their term waiting for replacement, but the main AWACS aircraft of the USA and NATO.

        Maybe just by the fact that in the process of testing deficiencies were identified and they are eliminated ?!

        AFAR is put on the new MiG-35 and on the Su-57, if there was a strong need for it, it would be installed on the Su-35.

        There is no A-100, probably due to the fact that it is cheaper and faster to modernize the A-50 and get the same aircraft according to its capabilities or very close to it, especially since the Il-76 now arrives in the transport version with a delay, and it will still be the AWACS option will require additional time and resources.

        MS-21 flies with a wing made of Russian composites and with a Russian engine, but we do it for a long time, because they constantly interfere.

        Russia is not the richest country and we do not have so many resources, and given the sanctions and pressure from the West, we should be glad that we are doing at least something and supplying the troops.

    Much more of these aircraft are needed for the RF Aerospace Forces. This is clear.
    Considering how slowly the Il 76 is being produced, it is also clear that it will be difficult to wait for the new A 50U.
    So the question arose.
    There are a lot of Tu 204/214, which the civilians abandoned because of uneconomics.
    But for the Aerospace Forces, this is a great plane. The engines are the same as on the 76th, the equipment is domestic.
    Maybe it's worth making AWACS out of them?

      For an AWACS aircraft, you need a reliable aircraft capable of long-term operation in the air and having the most modern electronic filling, and not just LCD monitors.
      In the light of today's requirements, you can also take care of the survivability of the board (the ability to repel attacks from surface-to-air missiles) ...

      I read that the military is not at all happy with the Tu 214. Not economical, too high speed when loitering. They even sued the manufacturer. They took only 2 previously ordered RTR Tu-214 aircraft and are not going to take any more, they say that for the purposes of RTR, AWACS, PLO, the slow but economical and reliable Il-22 Il-38 is a more profitable option.

      By the way, I never understood this, well, well, An is Ukrainian, you can't do anything, but Il is Russian. Well, okay there, the Il-112 does not work, a new machine, but there is a proven Il-20, is it really impossible to resume production for the needs of PLO and reconnaissance?

        It's a bit strange.
        Both Tu-214 and Il-76 have the same engines. -Aircraft engine PS-90. Loitering speed - IL-76 - 750-780 km / h, Tu-214 - 810- 850 km / h Small difference

          Why strange? I'm talking about the jet Tu 214, which is less suited to the needs of anti-submarine aviation, radio and photo reconnaissance than the slow and economical Il-20 turboprop.

          As for the Il-76 A-50 / 50U / 100, it's all about the carrying capacity. The weight and size parameters of the AWACS equipment of the Soviet period did not allow it to be placed on any aircraft other than the Il-76 without a significant decrease in efficiency. However, the E-3 "Centri" did not come very far in this regard.

          But the army needs both the A-50U A-100 and the massive and more economical Il-20/22/38 type, and we have no analogues of the Gulf Stream-type aircraft at all.

            My mistake. I did not think that we were talking about evaluating the Tu-214 as an PLO aircraft.

            As for the Il-76 A-50 / 50U / 100, it's all about the carrying capacity. The weight and size parameters of the AWACS equipment of the Soviet period did not allow it to be placed on any aircraft other than the Il-76 without a significant decrease in efficiency


            And the Il-96?

        "Is it really impossible to resume production?" It is not reasonable to master the production of a machine created 60 years ago, it is necessary to create a new aircraft. Another question is that his concept may be similar to the old one.

          Today they are creating two-engine transport Il-112, they are already going to produce two-engine passenger Il-114. It means that there is some production capacity. But the military range is 1900 km. (IL-114) is not enough, the military needs a four-engine IL-18/20/22/38 in modern reincarnation, for the needs of PLO / RTR / AWACS, so why not launch an old but modernized aircraft into series? Thanks to the use of a new, more compact element base, avionics, it is possible to increase the flight range, work efficiency, etc.
          Taking into account the fact that all modern aircraft, carriers of RTR / PLO / AWACS, as early as the 70s, are rapidly becoming obsolete, I think an order of several dozen such machines should be provided. And this means the economic feasibility of organizing a serial assembly, and not like that ... one or two cars a year.

            After the crash of the Il-112, everything is still hanging, because the 114 machine is also equipped with the same engines. It's about "going".

              Yes, I read. But one way or another, the engines will be, they have nowhere to go. Already turboprop engines will overpower, I think, the USSR could 50 years ago, now, even more so, they should be able to. Maybe in 2 years or 5 years. They won't be able to do it themselves, so foreign ones will copy it.

                Of course they will. Only in the USSR there were no managers. If the managers were now sent to cut the forest, then in general everything would be restored instantly. The engine is hi-tech, here you have to work and work, especially on the basis of modern technologies. So far, something else is working out.

        probably not quite able to resume. Because they don't do that anymore. But to rework this design in a modern way. I think they could. Moreover, we got some experience. And so yes Il 18 has unique characteristics.

      Much more of these aircraft are needed for the RF Aerospace Forces.

      What for? As I understand it, this is the command post of fighter aircraft. But in the first place, we have quite a few fighter aircraft, and secondly, it technically lags behind our potential opponents. And if Western AWACS aircraft have the function of illuminating targets for ground air defense, then ours (as far as I understand) have no such function in principle. IMHO

        An AWACS aircraft is, first of all, reconnaissance of air, ground and surface space, and only then a decision on the use of fighters, ships, air defense systems or tactical missiles.

        Well, I think that our AWACS planes also have interaction with air defense systems with ground-based air defense systems and fighters. Otherwise, what's the point in such airplanes ?!

    TANTK them. G.M. Berieva makes only one board for a whole year. Well this is what overhead costs !?

    Interestingly, and "Vega" besides this A50U still produces something, or the maintenance of this plant also hangs on the price of just one aircraft?

    It should be noted that this is the seventh aircraft received by the Russian Aerospace Forces within the framework of the program for the renewal of the AWACS aircraft fleet.


    It's not all bad.

    But in my opinion, we could use a smaller AWACS aircraft, something like the prototype of the Yak-44. Small economical and can take off from a small airfield or even an asphalt road.

    It could also be used on land from promising aircraft carriers.

    Recall that the Russian A-50 AWACS aircraft first took to the air in 1978 ...

    The first flight of the Soviet AWACS Tu-126 dates from 1961 Mr.

    First American AWACS Boeing E-3 Sentry made its maiden flight on October 31 1975 year

    In total, the seventh A-50U aircraft was updated, and the next one only in 23g.
    Even two AWACS planes per military district will not work ...
    If it is necessary to provide constant (round-the-clock) radar control of a certain territory, for example, if the situation in the DPR / LPR aggravates for several weeks or months using existing means, the task will not be completed ...
    All hope is for heavy-class UAVs, which also exist in single copies and are still undergoing a set of tests and improvements.
    Why is everything so slow ...?
    To ensure round-the-clock observation / control of a grouping of forces, each military unit must have at least four units. A-50U, i.e. 20 units. on the scale of the Russian Federation without taking into account possible combat losses and technical malfunctions of the sides.
    That is, the total number of AWACS aircraft should be in the range of 25-30 units. plus at least the same number of heavy reconnaissance UAVs.

    The idea of ​​an unmanned aircraft for early warning radar "Helios" looks more interesting and promising. The drone weighing 4-5 tons with the necessary set of radar equipment will be able to completely replace the colossus weighing under 200 tons A-50U or A-100 "Premier" in local conflicts.
    At the same time, he will be able to spend several times more time in the air than the A-50U.
    It will be significantly cheaper both at the production stage and at the operational stage.
    It is clear that a new drone will not be able to replace the A-100 complex by 100%, because it is also an air control center capable of coordinating the actions of fighter aircraft and ground air defense systems on a huge, several hundred kilometers, front. But this may not be necessary without starting a major war.
