33
At OJSC “Taganrog aviation scientific and technical complex named after G. M. Beriev ”(TANTK) completed the serial modernization of the second aircraft for long-range radar detection and control of the A-50 Russian Air Force in the A-50U variant. The second commercially modernized A-50U was the board "33 red". This aircraft (serial number 0043454618, serial number 41-05) was built in 1984, and entered modernization at the TANTK in early 2011. Currently, the machine is being tested after modernization and has not yet been completely painted in the new colors of the Russian Air Force.

The prototype of the modernized aircraft A-50U was the aircraft with the tail number "37 red" (serial number 0083476298, serial number 58-05), owned by TANTK. The certificate of completion of the State tests of the prototype A-50U was signed on November 26 of the year 2009. The first serially upgraded A-50U aircraft (onboard number "47 red", registration number RF-92957, serial number 0043453577, serial number 40-05) was transferred to the Russian Air Force 31 October 2011 after the modernization was completed. As part of the Russian Air Force, all combat aircraft of the A-50 series are part of the combat use of the 610 long-range radar detection aircraft of the 4 th center for combat use and retraining of the flight personnel (aviation personnel of the military transport aviation) of the 17 State training center for aviation personnel and military testing. According to known data, now in the air group there are 50 airplanes of types A-50 and A-XNUMXU, not counting at least two airplanes in storage.

    Guys work every single day. From the balcony it is very clearly visible when they rise from the airfield. It can be seen that a lot of tasks are posed by management.

        all combat aircraft of the A-50 series are part of the aviation group deployed at the Ivanovo-North aerodrome

        I thought they are scattered around airbases, and they are compactly based.

          All the handsome men stand together. The picture is awesomely beautiful, when you leave Ivanovo on the Kostroma highway, they are on the right hand with their "Mushrooms" on the ridges, it is already breathtaking, and our workers Il-76 transporter gave it a little.

            With one blow they will cover everyone! June 22, 1941 did not teach our "generals" anything! Now no one will declare war in 5 days. Already passed the "treacherous attack" ...

          And it would be more logical. For some reason, they are not evenly scattered in all districts.

        Even a little. It is necessary to make them on the basis of IL-96-300, they fly by 15 hours without landing.

          IL-96-300 - passenger option. If you strengthen the decks and the set, you get the IL-96-400, and he keeps less in the air. And in terms of dimensions, it is one and a half times more than the IL-76. Although there were sketches to create on the basis of the IL-96 aircraft AWACS.

    Why talk so much? Almost everything was leaked to the Internet: the true part numbers, and serial numbers, etc. Foreign intelligence does not need work - read and stay informed! Keep it up!

          We have quite a few of these inside our countries. Somehow, at work, accidentally ended up in a rented apartment of one such in the early 90s. He has the whole apartment from the shelves with newspapers and magazines (then there was almost no Internet yet). I fished out any useful info from newspapers and local magazines. Amerikos himself. He speaks Russian well. Not even hiding. Now, with an Internet everything has become much easier for them.

    Do not flatter yourself. Of all that you wrote the truth, 10%. Crew 10 people. and A-50 and A-50U are not engaged in radio engineering and radio reconnaissance.

    Good car. And what will our main experts in the VAF and Campaign say?

    By the way, I wonder why all the A-50s are assembled in one place?

    Ide,
    You don’t have to lie, this aircraft is not hopped. And in the picture it’s clearly not the A-50, but at best the IL-76. I say this as it flew for a long time on these machines, and took part in the factory and State tests of the A-50U.
