The 150th P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine aircraft rolled off the Boeing assembly line.

57

The number of P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine aircraft assembled by Boeing has reached 150 units, another aircraft rolled off the assembly line of the company and took off over Puget Sound in Washington state.


The new "anniversary" P-8A Poseidon will go to serve in the US Navy with deployment at the naval base aviation Patuxent River (Maryland). The aircraft will be part of the 1st Test and Evaluation Squadron of the US Navy. Before being handed over to the military, it will pass the necessary tests.

The transfer of the 100th P-8A Poseidon aircraft to the US Navy became known in May 2020. At that time it was reported that in service with the American fleet there are 94 P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine aircraft on duty in various regions of the world, another 6 aircraft are used as test aircraft for testing various new products. To date, the US Navy already has 112 P-8A Poseidon aircraft, 12 units were delivered to Australia and India, 9 are in service with the Royal Navy of Great Britain and 5 went to Norway.

P-8A Poseidon - a new generation patrol anti-submarine aircraft, created on the basis of the Boeing 737-800 passenger airliner. The aircraft is equipped with an AN / APS-137D (V) 5 airborne radar station and the AN / APY-10 radio intelligence system. In the internal compartment of the armament there are sonar buoys designed to detect submarines at great depths, free-falling and depth bombs, as well as Mark 54 torpedoes. Sidewinder air-to-air missiles (designed to protect the aircraft themselves) can also be mounted on the outer pylons of the aircraft and anti-ship missiles Harpoon.

In 2020, US Navy plans to rearm the P-8A Poseidon were reported. It was planned to equip the aircraft with LRASM anti-ship missiles, JDAM smart bombs, bottom mines from the Quickstrike family, a GBU-39 guided precision bomb, a BRU-55 bomb rack and a MALD decoy missile to protect the aircraft from anti-aircraft systems.

      If you do not pay attention to your second sentence, then you can scrape together IL-38 and Tu-142. But they are outdated, and there are too few of them for such a huge country washed by 12 seas.

      Tu-142 was produced 100 from 1968 to 1994
      Be-12 Chaika 143 from 1960 to 1973
      IL-38 made 5 pieces in 65 years

          Serdyukov is to blame! He categorically refused to purchase products of the domestic defense industry for the Moscow Region. He said that Armata could not be 2,5 times more expensive than Abrams and 2 times more expensive than Leopard. And Kurganets was generally 5 times more expensive than a similar Iveco armored personnel carrier. Maybe that's why the angry directors of the military-industrial complex achieved his removal. Although he raised the salaries of the military by 5-10 times.

            Serdyukov has not been at the helm of the Moscow Region for 10 years, is this not enough to correct his "unwanted"? Or will we nod at him for another 10-15 years and weld roofs from the corners onto tanks?

            It was Commander-in-Chief SV Postnikov. Who, after UVZ in 2011 once again raised the price of the T-90, and by as much as 70%, said in his hearts that it was easier to buy three Leos for this money than the seventeenth modification of the T-72.

            For the Be-200, money does not solve - there is a problem in the plant and in the engines.
            You remember about the failed order of the Be-200 for the Moscow Region, when the plant missed all deadlines for several years (!) - and the contract was terminated by the court. Then they concluded a new one, for a smaller number of boards - and the deadlines for it were broken, but at least something was given out.
            So with the Be-200 the formula "money is a commodity" does not work. The plant is at least talus of gold - but in reality Taganrog can make 1-2 Be-200s a year. With engines from Boguslaev, yes ... smile

              Manturov for luxury hotels and business trips 1/2 Taganrog blew, and Nabiullina and Siluanov $ 350 (or more) were “gifted to partners” (there was no Gaddafi, Zusein, Iran)

              What does the Be-200 and the anti-submarine have to do with it? In such cases, it is not the platform that decides, but hardware saturation and the composition of weapons. And on such a platform, nothing worthwhile can be collected and placed. "Poseidon" is an example of what an anti-submarine aircraft should be and only the Tu-214 or MS-21 (if one ever goes into series) can be a platform for such. Moreover, I would choose the Tu-214 for a number of reasons.
              And everything rests on the fact that we simply have no one to create such hardware saturation - Vega is chronically unable to cope with tasks, unable to give birth to the A-100 (which is simply critically important for our Aerospace Forces and the RF Armed Forces as a whole), where is it load more with this ... the modernization of the IL-38 fleet failed completely.
              And the PLO aircraft is needed, critically needed if the Russian Federation intends to continue to exist. Here, a colleague proposes to shoot all the guilty and those involved ... and who is capable of such a good deed?
              VGK?
              No. request It's not even funny ... "Nikolai-2" will never become Stalin.
              And it SHOULD be done. And at the most modern level, on the most advanced principles of searching for underwater objects. Not a magnetometer!!! And by the radar method along the water hump, using lidar, with high-quality computer signal processing, with full-fledged buoys and with all the necessary weapons - depth charges, anti-ship missiles, guided bombs, explosive missiles, with high-quality AFAR radar, RTR complex and the ability to refuel in the air .
              ... Here is just one list of everything you need causes sadness rather than optimism ... Because even the platforms for such aircraft (which need at least 60 pieces) are beyond the power of the industry to make ...

                The fact is that in our realities, problems begin already at the platform level. The topic with the anti-submarine based on Tupolev has been mulled over since 1996, since the time of the Tu-204. And each time, either the performance characteristics are acceptable, but the given load did not fit into the carrier, or all the equipment and combat load fit, but the range, speed and patrol time of the Navy are absolutely not satisfied. It seems that at the beginning of 2020 the Defense Ministry decided to make the Tu-214PLO, but everything calmed down.
                And why does the MO then walk in circles around the "carcass"? Because there is no viable alternative. We have no other more or less localized serial domestic aircraft of suitable range and payload. MS-21 is still a tit in the sky, and the PLO plane needs to be done yesterday. Moreover, it is on the basis of a machine that has been worked out in production and operation, so as not to stretch the aircraft’s tests even for the time of fine-tuning the base platform. And at the same time, not to lose crews and equipment due to equipment failures on a crude platform.
                And considering the Be-200 as a platform is precisely due to the lack of normal, fully localized civilian production vehicles. For an anti-submarine seaplane always loses to normal PLO aircraft based on Pax.
                The cost of a hydroaerodrome is higher than the cost of a conventional airbase - since a hydroaerodrome should have a normal strip for take-off and landing of amphibians when icing a hydroaerodrome or during a large wave.
                The weight return of the seaplane is less than that of a similar pack - since the possibility of landing and taking off from the water increases the weight of the structures and eats up the payload.

                  Well, the fact that in 1996 everything that was desired did not fit into the Tu-204 is understandable, but now what? After all, the A-100 equipment is so much lighter compared to the A-50 that it is more rational to place it on the Tu-214, while the range / loitering time increases. So everything needed will be included in the Tu-214 on a new radio-component base. Another thing is that there is no suitable developer, for so many years of "independence" ... of the very "independence" that is now called the "day of Russia", the last capable of it have died out. The admiral, generals and other ranks did not need it for nothing, "There WILL BE NO WAR" - that's their slogan. For 30 years, nothing new has been created, new methods and principles of detection have not been studied, no work has been carried out, scientific schools have been lost ... you won’t look at one Novella without tears.
                  And as for the platform - only Tu-214, at least one of them a year, but with grief they assemble in half, our components, and most importantly - no composites, especially wings, good old duralumin, which can be patched up at the airfield with a couple of technicians, and attach pylons , and compose a bomb bay, and make a battery for shooting buoys in the aft cone is not a problem.
                  But only there is no faith in the Kremlin prospectors at all - they will not do anything. They have already forgotten how to lie plausibly. NOTHING from special aviation aircraft has been created in 20-30 years, except for a few prototypes. Yes, and the aviation industry itself was ruined qualitatively and with a guarantee of non-rebirth. And they put all their strength so that nothing takes off.
                  These are the professional "patriots" miners.

Not on the external suspensions of the X-35 or anything else ... And you can’t sit on the sea with a wave. For a normal anti-submarine, an aircraft with a dimension of Tu-214 is required.

                      And the Be-200 is suitable for patrolling and as a sea rescuer. The normal composition of equipment and weapons can only accommodate an aircraft of a class not lower than the Tu-214. And most importantly, the anti-submarine must have a sufficiently large range and patrol time in the area. In general, the Tu-142 is such in our country to this day, and it needs a corresponding change.

    The number of P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine aircraft assembled by Boeing has reached 150 units, another aircraft rolled off the assembly line of the company and took off over Puget Sound in Washington state.

      Why it’s not working for us now, but it’s simply unprofitable to do something, it’s profitable just to trade, for example, it’s very profitable for doctors to trade glasses, just yesterday I went to Optics and found out that I can order 1.5 pairs of glasses from them for my pension, for comparison 50 years ago, my grandmother, if desired, could order 45 pairs of 18 rubles for retirement.

      A-40 - does not exist in the RF Armed Forces.
      and he is in no way patrol and anti-submarine.
      Not at all.
