Russia deployed Tu-22M3 long-range bombers and MiG-31K interceptors with the Dagger complex to Khmeimim

91

The Ministry of Defense deployed Tu-22M3 long-range bombers and MiG-31K interceptors with Kinzhal hypersonic systems to Syria. According to the military department, the planes have already landed at the Khmeimim airbase.


The MiG-31K and Tu-22M3 relocated to Syria will take part in joint exercises with the Russian Navy grouping, which will be held in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea. The crews of the aircraft performed a flight from the points of deployment, covering more than 1,5 thousand kilometers. The report refers to two Tu-22M3 long-range bombers armed with supersonic anti-ship missiles.

It should be noted that the Khmeimim airbase already hosted both Tu-22M3 and MiG-31K last year, when long-range bombers were deployed to Syria for the first time. This was made possible by the reconstruction of the second runway with its lengthening, new coating and the installation of new lighting and radio equipment. Now the airbase can receive aircraft of all types, including heavy ones.

In addition to participating in joint exercises, aircraft crews will acquire practical skills in new geographical areas, in particular, over the Mediterranean Sea, and study a possible theater of operations. In addition, the MiG-31K and Tu-22M3 will take part in combat missions, including the defense of two Russian military bases in Syria - Tartus and Khmeimim.

And the Russian exercises will have many spectators, there are now three aircraft carrier groups in the Mediterranean Sea, one each from the USA, France and Italy. So there will be someone to follow the flights of Russian aircraft. It is likely that the MiG-31K and Tu-22M3 will work out the tasks of destroying the enemy aircraft carrier group, although completely different tasks will be named aloud.

      In the Mediterranean Sea, the grouping of NATO ships is being pulled together. Apparently, a counterweight is being prepared for them.

        That is, everyone here is sure that there will be no Russian invasion. But, is everyone sure that the goals of the exercises are not bearded men, but ships and points located on the other side of the sea?

                Well, if very briefly - there is no noise immunity. Plus, a very hemorrhagic service, as it is equipped with a rocket engine with aggressive fuel components. It was decided to eliminate these shortcomings back in the days of the Soviet Union, it was then that the development of the X-32 to replace the X-22 began.

                    The X-32 also has a rocket engine, but upgraded, most likely the fuel is different. A new noise-immune radar-inertial guidance system with radio command correction and reference to the terrain has been installed. Instead of an autopilot, an automatic control system was installed. Unfortunately, there is still no detailed information on the Kh-32, although it was officially put into service in 2016.

        And the MiGs do not need to fly up to the range of the NATO air group.
        The Dagger has a range of 2000 km without a carrier combat radius, so the Mig 31K can shoot from the Black Sea right up to the Italian boot, without any problems for itself.

        1) why approach when the launch range of the x-22 is more than 500 km, the range of the Dagger is more than 1, if I'm not mistaken, up to 000 km.
        2) the use of long-range anti-ship missiles is complicated by only one thing - knowing the location of the target at the time of the missile launch, but there are no problems with this in the Mediterranean Sea, tea is not an ocean)

    Yesterday. 2 B52s flew out of England according to plan, they were to demonstrate their determination to us in the Mediterranean Sea. After refueling, one of them had technical malfunctions and returned to England. The second passed through Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Interfax. And not "too much" forces, to drive three AUGs?

    And the Russian exercises will have many spectators, there are now three aircraft carrier groups in the Mediterranean Sea, one each from the USA, France and Italy.


    Why viewers? They will make excellent training targets (I hope they will remain educational).
    It is a sin to miss such a moment for training, when you can practice on the whole "herd" at once.

    I wonder how many missiles are in a salvo?
    On each Tu-22 3? Total about ten for the whole group?
    How much lower is the range of those launched from the Tu-22 than those launched from the MiG-31?

      TU-22M3 do not carry Daggers, their anti-ship missiles are Kh-32, range up to 1000 km, Daggers are planned to be suspended on TU-22M3M, but so far the first modernized one is only being tested

            Mikhail, you know very well that IN NO OPTION it flies to 1000 (unfortunately, of course), although it should be noted that the launch range has increased compared to x22, and there are more launch modes. You can’t work out according to AUG, but according to KUG or according to DESO ..... At least all missile carriers will return home

            Unfortunately, I can’t give a link to official information, KTRV, for some reason, closed the website of the developer X-22 and X-32 of the Raduga GosMKB, where there was information on almost all their developments, and there is no nichrome on the KTRV website itself, but other sites indicate the range from 600 to 1000

      TU22m3 from the Khmeimim strip with 3 three missiles is unlikely to be able to take off. And strictly speaking, even two fully fueled missiles are already a reloading option. Something like this

        According to the video, the tu22m3 has one x22 on the ventral bd, and at the mig31 I didn’t see anything at all, maybe the daggers were rammed on the il76 with a convoy?

      Tu-22M3 carry X-22 anti-ship missiles. They don't have daggers.
      From one to three (maximum) Kh-22s for each Tu-22M3 - one under the wings and one under the fuselage.

          How can you prove that the plane is a Tu-22M3M, and not a Tu-22M3? Because under the X-32 the missile carrier must be upgraded to the M3M version

          As far as is known, there is currently only one Tu-22M3M unit in the Russian Aerospace Forces

    The British tabloid The Sun "learned" the exact time when Russian troops will invade Ukraine. They refer to "American intelligence" data.
    According to these data, the attack will begin at 03.00 Kyiv time (04.00 Moscow time) on February 16. 200 thousand soldiers will participate in the offensive.

    Allegedly, the troops were withdrawn from the borders .... AUG killers were driven to Middle-earth ... our castling for the Yankees did not improve their position ... it even worsened - the panheads did not become much calmer from the removal of a part of the l / s of our aircraft, but over the Yankees hung "strategists". Putin boldly and boldly operates even with minimal means, extracting the maximum to strengthen his position and image.

    Blocking of the gas pipeline Qatar - Turkey and without
    bombers are still working.
    The mercenaries were dispersed.

    When we stop defending
    interests of Gazprom, the gas pipeline will continue
    his march to the borders of Turkey.

    The agreement was signed in early 2000 between
    Qatar and Turkey.

    When there were simply no "flows" at all.
    And as far as I know, not cancelled.
    Compare gas reserves of Qatar and Russia
    it doesn't even make sense.
