Return to service from retirement: AFU showed gray-haired pilots of MiG-29 fighters

Even at the beginning of the special operation of the RF Armed Forces in Ukraine, the Kyiv regime suffered critical losses in combat aviation. It was possible to compensate for them only thanks to the transfer of equipment from the countries of the former socialist bloc and the return to service of long-decommissioned machines thanks to the work on their restoration deployed in Eastern Europe.


But it was not possible to revive a full-fledged Air Force - there is an acute shortage of front-line aviation of all types: helicopters, fighters and attack aircraft. In this regard, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are trying to get out, using equipment for other purposes. So, the other day, photographs were shown showing MiG-29 fighters in the most “lightweight version”.



The armament is a single aerial bomb, placed in a niche between the two engines, which reduces air resistance in flight. The same goal was pursued when dismantling the fuel tanks. This kind of “modernization” of the MiG-29 is designed to maximize its flight speed for carrying out swift attacks on ground targets, that is, it is aimed at using a classic air combat fighter as an attack aircraft.

As reported, pilots are involved in piloting, who have long gone on a well-deserved rest. These are people under the age of "under sixty", who were retired. Now they are being returned to service.

The next flight will show how the MiG-29 converted into an attack aircraft and its gray-haired crew will behave in battle.

      And what difference does it make to us, for example, who will stab you with a knife, a teenager or an old man?

        The difference is that, according to the data of the "talking head", all the MiG-29s of Ukraine + Eastern Europe (in terms of quantity) were DESTROYED, therefore no gray-haired ones will fly anywhere - a staged trick from "KievNauchFilm" (January 1, 1941. hi During the Great Patriotic War, the studio was evacuated to Tashkent, where educational and propaganda films were produced for the Red Army. Returned to Kyiv in 1944 soldier ). Somehow it turns out if you completely trust the reports of the Moscow Region.
        At a briefing by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on July 15, General Igor Konashenkov announced the destruction of 253 aircraft, 137 helicopters, 1 UAVs, 543 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 4 MLRS, 060 field artillery pieces and mortars

            There are open independent sources that indicate what kind of weapons and in what quantity different countries have. I do not think that there will be an error more than 15-20%. Take the number they named Mig29 of Ukraine + Poland + Slovakia, etc. and add 20% on top. And subtract from it the number of Konashenkov called shot down. How many are left - they fly.

              According to official data from the same Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, at the time of the military operation the APU had 152 aircraft, 149 helicopters, 36 Bayraktar TB2 UAVs, 2 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 416 MLRS, 535 field artillery pieces and mortars.

              I understand that supplies from the West (possibly ILLEGAL) could raise the quantitative composition of front-line aviation, but -
              Polish Air Force - 23 MiG-29s in service as of 2021
              (On March 12, TASS reported that, according to reports, US President Joe Biden decided to ban the transfer of Polish MiG-29 fighters to Ukraine)
              WARSAW, 21 May. /TASS/. The Polish authorities, who refused to transfer their Soviet-made MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine, instead sent spare parts for these aircraft to Kyiv. This was reported on Saturday by the Polish information portal Onet.

              Slovak Air Force:
              MiG-29AS 10 + MiG-29UBS 2 =12
              Defense Ministry Yaroslav Nagy.
              The minister pointed out that MiG-29 aircraft are now at the Sliac airport in central Slovakia. “They will guard our airspace until the end of August, you will see them on August 27 at SIAF (Slovak International Aviation Festival),” he said.
              Something like this. I did not find any confirmed data on the delivery of the MiG-29 to Ukraine, so they fly on their "destroyed" ones. wassat
              And yet, pay attention, we do not declare the destruction of other brands of aircraft except Mig and Su. And where is the L-39 (30 pcs.), For example, I have never heard of ???

      Difficult, because he goes at low altitude, drops bombs in the area of ​​\uXNUMXb\uXNUMXbconcentration of our troops and leaves.

      Considering that NATO intelligence is now working for Ukraine, this allows them to determine the areas of operation of our air defense systems and avoid them.

      Of course, everything doesn’t always go smoothly for them, but we must admit that almost 7 months of NWO have passed, we have spent hundreds of missiles attacking airfields, we have a bunch of air defense systems and fighters, and they are still flying.

      It's time to stop counting on the fact that the enemy will get cold feet and run, or that they will run out of something soon. They are not cowardly, they are like us, they are us, only on the other hand, and the West will give them everything they need from ammunition to artillery, and soon tanks and aircraft.

      We need to strengthen the grouping in the Northern Military District and as soon as possible, not just send people there, but create new units, for this we need to pay more volunteers, strengthen the supply of the Northern Military District and the LDNR police with everything necessary, from tactical medicine to equipment. If something is missing, buy abroad wherever possible, through front companies, etc.

      The shame and disgrace is that now volunteers are making almost the main contribution to providing the army with tactical UAVs, anti-drone guns, tactical medicine and even communications.

      And military-industrial complex enterprises should work 24 hours, tanks need KAZ and mine sweeps, MLRS and artillery need long-range and high-precision ammunition, intelligence needs UAVs with good optics and thermal imagers, and a bunch of everything else.

        Here recently grappled with one very "Orthodox". I asked him a question about how the ROC helps the Army. He says he directs donations from parishioners. And he couldn’t answer my question about why the priests can’t shake off the money and provide at least the fighters of Novorossia with what they need. But the Patriarch urged to pray...you know for whom.

          The church is not a commercial organization, they do not have a large supply of funds, she herself lives on donations, which are not so many in reality.

          But for example, political parties and commercial organizations, as well as just very rich people in our country, could more actively help the front, otherwise, apart from United Russia, no one is visible at the front.

          Vasily, are you concerned about Orthodoxy? And why priests, and not mullahs, lamas, pastors or rabbis? Russia is a very multi-confessional country. And why didn’t you ask the oligarchs to shake the purse, there every purse is as tall as you, if not more. This would be the result. Not for the Ferris wheel in Moscow, which is the most .... what we need now in the country, not for the day of the city of Moscow, billions, but for the guys, for weapons and equipment, they desperately need it. Have you decided to hype? Well, for example, in our village one and a half old women go to church, with a population of more than a thousand people. And such in Russia - the darkness. What to shake our ass, sick. In general - you blew into a puddle. Well, the fact that the Patriarch called to pray for the President, so you explain to me what's wrong with that? He did not call to kill him, not to rob. If you don't want to, if you can't, don't pray, your number is seventeen. To be honest, this kind of individuals irritate me, the country needs to rally, unite, but there will always be some kind of Galkin, Urgant or Vasily, who strives so casually, gradually, like with good intentions to throw shit ... ts to the common cauldron.

          Yeah, you'd better grapple with Mordashov or Vekselberg. With Usmanov or Deripaska, with Radugin. I go to the Temple where it rarely comes out for 2000 rubles a day. The guards have nothing to pay. Father and mother survive at the expense of the garden and donations. Now, if you forced at least 30 percent of their wealth to deduct our oligarchs (they paid so much tax under Yeltsin), you would be very grateful. They are sitting on the legacy of the USSR and all their wealth has been welded. Then the volunteers would not have to buy anything.

        If you only learn to fly and fight, then a year is enough, and if you try, even half a year. And if you teach like ours - notes on public and state training, drill and every year from March to May, preparation for the parade, endless outfits for patrol and duty at the checkpoint, household work, which officially, as it were, no longer exists, the study of materiel in the same volumes , as aviation technicians (because teachers are reluctant to draw up different notes and plans for different groups of students), although the pilot will still not be able to repair his plane ... In this situation, and after 5 years, the pilot graduates, but really does not know how to fly and fight .

There are no problems with weapons, no problems with fighters, no problems with ammunition, no problems with equipment, and most importantly, no problems with motivation. Especially after the goodwill gestures and regroupings on our part. Now they generally decided that dill is invincible.

    In vain they staged a laugh. The enemy is very serious, still of Soviet training. And if you think that we are pilots, forget something, then you are deeply mistaken. Even though he seems to have retired decades ago, his head and hands remember everything, where is which switch-switch and everything else. It's all gone forever.
    So a maximum of a week of intensive flights and everything finally returned.
    And the health of 55-65 year olds is not so sad. There are problems, but not for everyone, young people are often much more rotten.
    However, you can look at the test pilots. What, a lot of young people there? Grandfathers are still the same, but they can do nothing.
    In addition, there are two categories that are not afraid of death, the first are those who are under twenty, because they have not yet acquired their minds and believe in their immortality, the second, who are about 55. They have already lived, the children have grown up ahead, nothing really awaits . And falling in battle is not such a bad prospect before the option of hoarding in a dozen other years, helpless, walking under oneself, but in one's own bed.
    So it will be a difficult opponent, very difficult.

    And it seems that propaganda in Ukraine is much more literate than ours, since the people of Soviet hardening were brainwashed.

    By the way, we also need to adopt this experience, thanks to the efforts of generations of authorities, we have enough war veterans, especially among helicopter pilots. At least make up your mind, conduct medical examinations and see who else can fly. Yes, and it is impossible to urgently return old equipment to service, it is impossible to win with a small number without developed airmobile forces.

      No, they didn’t wash it - they were like that.
      I tried to find on YouTube either a short film or a show I saw in the 90s.
      The bottom line is this - in 1992 (or so) fighter pilots (it seems Su-27) from Ukraine were interviewed - one of the questions is what will happen if a war starts between Russia and Ukraine, will you fight against yesterday's colleagues. Almost everyone answered that they will.

        Some were, and some were not. I served at that time. Only two people left our flight crew from the regiment, despite the fact that there were about 20% of Ukrainians, and if with a surname with a "ko" take even more. Although many were called, far from bad places, and relatives there, they refused, because of this very oath and the conditions with it.
        There were many who refused to take the oath and left for the Russian Federation. Moreover, not only Russians, but also Ukrainians. It's just that then they didn't care about nationality, the question was - are you a Soviet officer or not?
        So they went to Russia, like the White Guards to the Don.
        And there were also many Russians who stayed and took the oath of allegiance to Ukraine.
        But you don’t need to look for political background here, you need to remember what discord reigned in your heads in those years. In addition, do not forget the famous "KVN" graduates of Soviet schools. When the merry rode east, the resourceful went west.

                    Meanwhile, then the situation was different, for example, while on vacation in Ukraine, an officer of the Russian Federation became registered at the local commandant's office. And if there are no such marks, then upon returning from vacation he received a scolding from his own command.
                    In addition, there was an agreement on pension provision. The Soviet officer ended his service in Ukraine in the already Ukrainian army, after his dismissal he returned to Russia, becoming a reserve officer already in the Russian Federation and the whole service was counted. And vice versa accordingly.

                        The pilot thanked in the comments - I noticed the ending in his name on YouTube KZ (Kazakhstan), went to his channel with a bad feeling and it didn’t let me down - I came across a video on his channel with an Azerbaijani military expert (as I understand it, also a former Soviet military): "aggression in Ukraine", "backward weapons", etc., very softly, intelligently, without denunciation of a zealous one.
                        And he called up as the SVO began with Russian and Ukrainian colleagues.
                        What I mean is that they are our former Soviet fellow citizens now citizens of other states, and we are nobody for them at best, and enemies at worst.
                        And I perfectly understand that we will not be pitied. And they will tear our country apart, so we can’t lose in any way.

                        There are two points.
                        Russia, sadly to realize, for all these years has not done anything to at least arouse sympathy among former Soviet citizens and their heirs. The procedure for obtaining citizenship alone is worth something. It comes to ridiculous, refugees, pensioners, as well as people of unskilled labor, who consume more than the return from them, received citizenship almost automatically. At the same time, highly qualified specialists who did not ask for anything other than citizenship, neither financial assistance, nor housing, they have professions in demand and they earned everything for themselves, launched into several circles of hell.
                        The second point is that it is foolish to blame foreigners if we have enough of our own, home-grown Russophobes and anti-Soviet people.

                        These 2 points, alas, will have to be combined.
                        Among those who come to work or even receive citizenship of the Russian Federation from Central Asia, the Caucasus, there are many who hate Russia, Russians.
                        And this can become for the opponents of Russia something that can be influenced or is already being influenced.

    The weapon is a single aerial bomb placed in a niche between the two engines, which reduces air resistance in flight
    Damn really "expert". I wonder how the placement of an air bomb in the stream, between the engines, reduces air resistance? Yes, it doesn’t look like a bomb, it’s more like a PTB. Which, by the way, was supposed to be hung on this place.

    The armament is a single aerial bomb, placed in a niche between the two engines, which reduces air resistance in flight. The same goal was pursued when dismantling the fuel tanks. This kind of “modernization” of the MiG-29 is designed to maximize its flight speed for carrying out swift attacks on ground targets, that is, it is aimed at using a classic air combat fighter as an attack aircraft.

    The next flight will show how the MiG-29 converted into an attack aircraft and its gray-haired crew will behave in battle.

    And what difference does it make to us, for example, who will stab you with a knife, a teenager or an old man?
    Destroy, to hell, an armed enemy and an enemy.



    I have a purely professional question. And how did these grandfathers pass VLK? Here the question is not like a medical board in the traffic police. The question is more serious. MiG-29 - fighter. Overloads and 5 and 7 and further towards the "gray-eyed beauty" (graying of the lateral fields of vision due to the outflow of blood from the eye) Grandfathers, and even out of habit, will easily begin to lose consciousness. Well, fight yourself and ruin the equipment.

    No, well, if it’s completely edge ... Salokamikaze? :) Well, you won’t get enough pilots or planes ....

    Something I have a suspicion that the enta infa is a misinformation or even a fake ...

    After all, ukrov now have a shortage of aircraft, not pilots!

    No, that's right, bullshit! Unrealistic!

        Yeah, fly, throw, and no one will answer, or prevent it in a warning way? In addition, even just flying to the target, launching / resetting and quick flight will require significant maneuvering, which is fraught with loads that the body cannot tolerate with age. Looks like you haven't seen the pilots since the mission. I saw after training flights, at least wring out your underwear. See how ours spin during flights, and this is with no opposition from enemy aircraft. Only maneuvers from possible attacks from the ground. On the sofa, you can talk about lightness and simplicity. But where did Ukrainian aviation go?

    The difference is that according to the "talking head" all the MiG-29s of Ukraine + Eastern Europe (in terms of quantity) were DESTROYED,



    Where and when did Konashenkov list specific types of combat aircraft of the Armed Forces of Ukraine?
    253 aircraft are of all types (MiG-29, Su-25, Su-24, Su-27).
    Taking into account the reserve, Ukraine had more than 350 aircraft at the beginning of the conflict, plus supplies from other countries of the former Warsaw Pact.

    And how much was immediately after the collapse of the USSR, you know?
    Only the MiG-29 in 1992 - about 240 pieces.
    About 70 more Su-27s, 45 Su-24s...
    Well, they squandered, of course, they let most of them go "to the left".
    It is necessary to take into account not only what is in the Air Force, what is in the flight units, but also the reserve - in warehouses.
    I have strained with aircraft manufacturing plants in Ukraine, but aircraft repair enterprises may well work. So they assemble new airplanes, dismantling old decommissioned or damaged ones. Including from junk received from Eastern European countries.
