Russian Su-35S shot down two helicopters and two enemy aircraft in one combat patrol

In the zone of the special operation, the Russian Su-35S fighter during combat patrols showed an unprecedentedly high result, shooting down two planes and two helicopters of the Ukrainian Air Force.

According to the Telegram channel Fighterbomber, this case is one of the best ever history world combat aviation. Everything happened within two hours. Ukrainian Su-24 and MiG-29 aircraft and two Mi-8 helicopters were shot down using just four missiles - one for each enemy aircraft. By and large, there really is a record set during the battle in the recent history of combat aviation. And this record belongs not to the mythical Ukrainian "ghost of Kyiv", but to a real Russian pilot who piloted the Su-35 fighter.



Meanwhile, the transfer of combat aircraft of various modifications to the Russian Aerospace Forces continues. During the last week alone, two Tu-160 supersonic intercontinental strategic bombers, four Su-57 fighters and three Su-34 bombers were handed over to the troops.

Also, the long-range aviation forces of the Russian Aerospace Forces received another missile carrier-bomber Tu-22M3. On the aircraft transferred by the Tupolev concern, the latest complexes were reportedly implemented, aimed at improving combat performance.

For 2023, the defense enterprises of the aviation industry received a state order for the manufacture of an unprecedented large number of pieces of equipment.

            Will he calculate the number of aircraft and helicopters in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine on February 24? And compare this figure with the number of "destroyed"? And tell us how many planes are left with the Armed Forces of Ukraine today after our deafening victories? True, this is a risky business. No matter how negative the final result is again.


            Will not work.
            At the beginning of the NWO, Ukraine had about 450 relatively new aircraft.
            Of these 450, about 150 vehicles were in service.
            The remaining about 300 vehicles were withdrawn from the state and were in storage or repair.
            Those aircraft that were in service were very quickly destroyed. There was even a period of two months when not a single Ukrainian plane appeared near the front line.
            Those planes that were in storage, Ukraine is gradually repairing. Most likely not to 100 percent readiness, but to the state - it can take off, okay.
            So Ukraine had about 450 aircraft. Officially destroyed, today 355.
            So Ukraine only has about a hundred of its own aircraft left. Plus an unknown number of deliveries from abroad.

              400 vehicles for only three of these models, I’m also Su-24/17, MiG-23 / 27,21, but I certainly didn’t consider them to be repairable.

          Our military-industrial complex is gaining momentum!

          I really want to believe it, but somewhere, in the depths of my soul, the thought sharpens my soul like a worm - where and from where did the workers appear at the factories, about the shortage of which the heads of all departments were crying all the time? When we were told that (I speak exaggeratedly) the "lathe" machine began to work in 3 shifts, I, as a person who knows what production is, wondered - where did they get so many people working professions (turner, milling machine operator, CNC machine tool and etc., etc.) so that they would come to the machines in the second and third shifts? Cloned, right? Here's something you might be thinking about... recourse

As far as I know, at least before the start of the SVO, they were paid around 40 tyr and it was difficult to recruit specialists, perhaps their salaries were raised?

              You don’t really imagine what a “Soviet” turner or milling machine is who makes parts for a 4-5 generation fighter. They are either there or they are not, they cannot be put in the freezer until better times.
              There can be only one explanation. These are CNC machines working in 3D profile and 3D printers.
              It's easier with them. Unless of course they are not chipped by the manufacturer for remote control.

            1. They brought at least a little order, plus economies of scale, here you can raise labor productivity up to 200% in the defense industry. Although I’m sure that they didn’t squeeze out even 20%, it’s necessary to think about it, it’s easier to see below.
            2. Honestly (and not as always) they pay double for overtime, acc. people are ready to work 12 hours not 2/2, but 3/1, and some even 12 hours 6/1. At the same time earning two or more salaries per month. The question, of course, is how much is enough.
            3. Very actively lure workers from "private traders". They attract both with armor and a good (and not, as before, the average for the city) salary.

            In general, it reveals its own and, if everything goes right, it will reveal a lot more in defense industry production.

            There are "cool" factories there, where effective (in every sense) managers were at the helm, who stole on the development of the enterprise. As a result of the shop outside in glass and metal, inside is also nothing, the machines and equipment are the most expensive that can be attracted to existing needs, everyone has good salaries. Another thing is that the competent authorities need to carefully sort out all the expenses, there probably was no need at all in half the cases, well, ports and kickbacks were self-sustaining.
            At such enterprises, it is easy to increase labor productivity, just change the management and show him the Mauser.

            It is much worse where they stole at the collapse of the enterprise. There, it is often easier to take everything and everyone out of the shops and create everything anew than to put things in order in the existing one.
            And sometimes the workshops with the territory are so neglected that it is easier to build new frame-sandwich houses and individual boiler houses in each, on a territory many times smaller than the existing landfill called the plant.

            You must have been working 150 years ago. For example (8 years ago) = technologists calculated the time for me to make a small part from a circle of 60. There were several configurations: a hexagon, internal drilling, thread, horizontal slots, and at the end - engraving on the part. On the existing equipment (turning and milling machines and) - two shifts for everything about everything. 3 people involved: a milling machine, a turner, an engraver. In my eyes, it was made of stainless steel in 29 seconds and ... 1 person participated. A line of 15 longitudinal turning machines, working in 3 shifts, was replaced by 1 Swiss machine - 1 person, and on the line - 9 turners and an adjuster. I can give many examples. Now there are more accountants than workers.

          As Suvorov said, "write more than to feel sorry for these busurmans." You must also get along with your head and common sense. Soon there will be a figure in these "reports" - you won't find so many planes in Europe.
          Yes, there were bases with old rubbish - tanks, planes, etc. It was impossible to put all this "on the wings" - there was a war all around, there were no spare parts and workers were called.
          The Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is like a phoenix, reborn after a "defeat", they probably receive a bonus for these figures. hi

      Not only on the scale of the NWO, but on the scale of military aviation in the world.
      One Su-35S took down 2 helicopters and 2 aircraft in one combat patrol. It took him 2 hours.
      It is not clear about the aircraft, either the Su-24 and MiG-29, or the MiG-29 and Su-25. And a pair of Mi-8s.

      Surprisingly, this is not. The epic is that one Su-35S did it all in two hours, spending 4 missiles on all.

      It looks like something has changed in getting attack permissions. Previously, the pilot (even at the beginning of the SVO) had to capture the target, request permission to attack, and then either shoot down or not. With such agreements, he would not have shot down one plane in two hours. So the pilot himself was allowed to make decisions. It's good! good

        What sides could they take away? Is that the "moment" could come off. But he could be shot down first: the enemy fighter has the highest priority in this situation. The subsonic Su-24, and even more so the helicopters, would have had no chance because of the difference in speeds.

          Su-24 is a supersonic aircraft. And apparently they have no online intelligence in principle. They are not eaten at all. Otherwise, the MiG and Su would not have flown to carry out a mission in the area where our fighter is circling. The latter was probably not alone, fighters usually fly in pairs. The attack itself was most likely a complete surprise and the planes did not take evasive maneuvers or they were useless due to the distance of the attack. The turntables most likely flew after the crews of the downed and also got caught.

      Already calculated. There is a channel on YouTube - "The Boy in the Mask", the author took the trouble to put together the available data on the air forces of Ukraine. You can easily find these videos (by channel name).
      In general, at the time of the collapse of the USSR, Ukraine got a very decent air force, that is, a huge number of aircraft. During the years of independence, most of this fleet of vehicles has been lost and sold.
      But nevertheless, it should be said about a little more than a hundred aircraft that were available at the beginning of the operation.
      How many of them remained, and how many were supplied by the West (including spare parts), is not known for certain.
      Western deliveries are coming and the planes are being repaired. And most likely they no longer pay attention to the exhausted resource of engines, etc. Therefore, they also take to the air planes and helicopters.
      But has the Ministry of Defense ever declared that the last plane of the "covered forces" has been destroyed?
      Or was there a statement that there were only three of them left?

        Asian military publications are now taking a lot of interviews with Ukrainian pilots. In them, the pilots tell that they have to invent cunning tricks, how to dodge missiles, how to simulate their own downing. That's how they survive for months.
