A flight of Su-30SM2 multirole fighters entered service with an air regiment stationed in the Kaliningrad region. This was reported by the press service of the Western Military District.


According to the report, four Su-30SM2s landed at the airfield in Chernyakhovsk, Kaliningrad Region, the aircraft became part of the mixed aviation regiment of the naval aviation Of the Baltic fleet. It is noted that the fighters were received by the engineering and technical staff of the regiment at the Irkutsk aircraft plant, after which the crews flew to the Kaliningrad region. Previously, the crews of the new fighters underwent appropriate training.

The Irkutsk Aviation Plant has produced the first batch of Su-30SM2 multi-role fighters, the press service of Irkut Corporation PJSC reported. At the same time, it was announced that all aircraft were intended for naval aviation of the Russian Navy.

Last summer, sources in the military department reported that the Baltic Fleet would receive a batch of Su-30SM2, the new fighter should replace the obsolete Su-27 in naval aviation. The new Su-30SM2 can serve as both a fighter and an attack aircraft, delivering strikes against land and sea targets.

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced the conclusion of a contract for 21 Su-30SM2 fighters in 2020. The Su-30SM2 fighter is maximally unified with the Su-35. It should receive the AL-41F-1S engine and the Irbis radar, improved avionics, electronics and an expanded arsenal of weapons.

However, as specified, the delivered fighters belong to the first stage of modernization with an expanded arsenal of weapons and improved combat capabilities. They did not receive the AL-41F-1S engine. Testing of the variant with the new power plant should be completed only by the end of 2023.

        And they didn’t receive a radar from the Su-35 either.

        “Four modernized Su-30SM2 fighters are designed to be transferred to naval aviation of the Navy. “The aircraft received increased combat capabilities and retained the main advantages of the Su-30SM: super-maneuverability, long flight range, airborne radar with a phased antenna array, a crew of two people, providing simultaneous control air combat and the destruction of ground targets, ”the press service of the KLA said.
        ..
        The head of the aircraft plant specified that as part of the modernization of the Su-30SM to the Su-30SM2 version, imported equipment was replaced with domestic analogues. The fighter received improved performance characteristics of the optical-electronic sighting and navigation complex, the complex of electronic countermeasures, the radar control system, ensuring an increase in the detection range of air targets. In addition, the range of used air-to-air and air-to-surface guided weapons against air, ground, including radar and sea targets has been expanded with an increase in the range of their application.

        The Su-30SM multi-role fighters are equipped with two AL-31FP turbojet boosted turbojet engines with thrust vector control, which provides the machine with super-maneuverability. One of the goals of upgrading to the SM2 version is the unification of the power plant with the Su-35S fighter. On January 5, 2022, it became known that the supply of Su-30SM2 fighters with the AL-41F-1S engine in the interests of the Russian Ministry of Defense could begin in 2023.

      This is not a Su-30SM2. These are simple Su-30SMs, but modified under the Sych program. They, with the light hand of incompetent "military" experts, stuck the name Su-30SM2.
      This confusion was spun by the civilian media and "Hurrah-patriots"! Tests of the Su-30SM2 should begin at the end of 2022.
      Here is an example of stupid military experts saying:
      We now have groupings that we consider optimal in terms of quantitative composition. Therefore, renewal is not so much due to an increase in the number of equipment, as due to modernization. As a result, aircraft become multifunctional, allowing them to perform anti-submarine, fighter, and combat duty tasks in combination, thereby increasing the capabilities of naval aviation.

      Major General Igor Kozhin, former head of naval aviation

      In all 4 fleets of the Great Country there are as many as 26 Su-30SM aircraft, approximately 6 aircraft per fleet? ! Is this person sick or stupid?

          The military leader, and above all the generals, must think about how to successfully complete the task of defending the Motherland, what is needed for this and how best to use what is already there! If the commander wants to please his superior and please him, this is no longer an officer, but a piece of shit ... The generals ruined the Soviet Army, which then led to the collapse of the USSR. This collapse of the SA was documented and took place in Moscow in December 1989 ...
          On December 8, 1989, the first All-Army Officers' Meeting was held in Moscow at the Central Theater of the Soviet Army, chaired by USSR Minister of Defense Dmitry Yazov. The meeting discussed "questions of the political situation in the country and the state of affairs in the army."

          https://www.kommersant.ru/doc/549158
          Everything that is written about this meeting is a lie, as well as the fact that Yazov led this meeting, he did not even have a participant’s mandate as he was an invited person, like all invited division commanders and above .... Mandates and the right to make decisions possessed by elected representatives of officer assemblies from all over the country and not only ... But the corrupt military generals paid heavily for the intention to organize window dressing .... After all, reviving the Officers' Assembly, as an Institute in the "people's" power in the army in the person of ordinary officers, they pursued the goal , to show the unity of the Party and the Army, while the state began to sway ...But the result shocked them... The officers announced the extreme situation in the army and the need for quick reforms ... About the isolation of the generals from reality and the decay of the command apparatus ... No matter how they tried to shut their mouths !!! Let me give you one example, on the second day they brought a check "Birch" to the hall of the congress building and traded imported goods for rubles, they brought a food outlet with delicacies and fruits ... But the officers did not flinch even in their Address to the leadership of the Armed Forces
          countries have recorded a critical state in the army! It was decided to set up an elected committee of representatives of the congress to help develop such a reform .... As soon as the congress was over, all the people of this committee were discharged from the army...From now on the word General became associated in SA with the word SHIT and the consequences and echoes of this have not lost their significance even today, with rare exceptions ... The entire bureaucratic general system is preserved in the Russian Army ... Cowardly opportunists and sycophants in front of the command and detached despot-gods for subordinates, strangle the Russian Army with a cancerous tumor. ..There is enough shit to this day ... How the generals sold officers and combat units in Ukraine in 1991, I will tell you another time ....

              And the mines laid by Serdyukov continue to explode and remind of themselves.
              It has already gotten to the point that they began to train crew members of strategic and military transport aviation ... from ground technical staff!
              This was not the case even during WWII. But even this technical staff has nowhere to properly train.
              Not to mention electronic warfare operators, weapons operators, navigators and others.

        Pfff ... You remember how Commander-in-Chief of the Navy Chirkov talked about the anti-submarine defense of the forces of the Navy in the areas of naval bases and in the territories adjacent to them exclusively by the forces of stationary GAK and coastal aviation - even having in the future only 8 anti-submarine aircraft for all fleets.
        The main command does not see any prospects in the creation of ships previously designated as the "OVR Corvette". One of the main tasks of the OVR is to ensure the protection and defense of the naval forces in the areas of naval bases and in the adjacent territories. This task is now performed by coastal surveillance equipment, stationary sonar stations and coastal missile and artillery troops armed with anti-ship missiles of various ranges, as well as anti-submarine and strike aircraft. Having abandoned the corvette, the Navy turned to the idea of ​​creating patrol ships - less armed, but with greater autonomy and versatility, capable, among other things, of going on long voyages.

    arrived at the 72nd air base.
    10 Su-27, 3 Su-27UB, 8 Su-30SM, 14 Su-24M + 4 extreme Su-30SM2 = 39
    now a full-fledged squadron of 8 Su-30SM + 4 Su-30SM2 = 12
    they wanted to change the second squadron of old Su-27s to Su-35S,
    but so far the first in line is AB Khotilovo

    I could be wrong, but it seems that information about the number and movement of troops, when disclosed, falls either under espionage, or under treason.
    It is dangerous (and maybe harmful) to write such a thing. I think so.

      We have a zoo at the level of modifications, but at the same time there are only three main basic models of the same fighters - Su-27, Su-30 and Su-35. All of them are of the same design bureau and, in fact, represent an evolutionary development of the Su-27.
      And for the Indians, the zoo begins already at the level of basic models and manufacturers.
