Sudden teachings in the sky over Vorkuta

25
A sudden test of the combat readiness of the Air Force took place last week at the Pemboi test site in the area of ​​the former mining village of Halmer-Yu, near Vorkuta.




The exercises were as close as possible to the combat conditions - the crews of MiG-31 interceptor aircraft and A-50 interceptor aircraft from various garrisons of the country were alarmed and redeployed to the Sovetsky military airfield near Vorkuta, where they took to combat duty. A special feature of the exercises was that the pilots did not know in advance what kind of adversary they would have to deal with and they did not receive the combat mission in advance, but already in flight in real time.



Tu-XNUMHUB-L ensured the delivery of the crew to the bomber flying over the Arctic Ocean

The approach to the protected area of ​​the Tu-95MS bomber, which played the role of a conditional enemy, did not catch the fighter pilots by surprise.
When, the conditional enemy, who was above the Arctic Ocean, without entering the zone of anti-aircraft defense, launched a cruise missile, a group of fighters from four MiG-31, already took off on his interception. The group of fighters was controlled and aimed at the target from the A-50 long-range radar detection aircraft. Working together with A-50 and independently, exchanging information with each other, the MiG-31 are able to detect and destroy small-sized speed targets flying at low altitude, such as air-based cruise missiles. Five of them, they can carry out the missile defense of a huge region, controlling the territory, for example, of the whole Polar region, or the Far East.





Open bombs Tu-95MS - the hunt for the "product" has begun!

Launched along a complex trajectory, the cruise missile first went toward the Kara Sea, made a detour over it and, turning back, looped for over an hour over the tundra, trying to confuse the missile defense system. However, this did not prevent the fighters from detecting the launch of a cruise intruder, escorting it and destroying it using air-to-air missiles before it could reach the target at the Pemba proving ground.
The crews had to perform a combat mission in dense cloudy conditions, which made it difficult to visually detect a target, so everything had to be done almost blindly, in instrumentation, which brought the exercises even closer to the real combat situation, however, nothing prevented the exercise participants from completing the mission.
According to the assurances of the Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu, such sudden checks of combat readiness will continue to be held to improve the quality and level of Russia's defense capability.

      Conclusion: The teachings were not sudden. Everything is as usual, everyone knows everything in advance.

        Well, okay! As much as I am skeptical about the policies of our government, but we must pay tribute, recently the exercises have become regular. It may not be sudden, but before they were heard about them at best a couple of times a year, and now more often than every month. So let the guys train, it’s all good soldier

        This phrase also confused me a little.
        What is known to journalists is known to all.

          What is known to journalists is known to all.

          It is not clear on the instructions of which editorial office the photo-report was prepared, but if we assume that the press center of the Moscow Region addresses one of the editorial offices with a request: "Gentlemen, prepare a group of journalists, perhaps in the near future you will have an interesting report." , Petit, Vanya sits on his mobiles and waits for the command "Leave to such and such an airfield", after which he gets on the plane and works out the report, then not everything and everyone may know. And then the article does not say whose Tu-134 was, but not editorial, most likely the press center of the Moscow region. Support in the army is always prepared in advance, but an order may be given to prepare, but the goals for what they are preparing are not always known. But in general, I think the air defense and aviation have worked well. Recently, this was not the case either.

      Although not modernized, it performed its function perfectly, which in itself indicates a high potential of the product. And taking into account modernization, the characteristics will be generallyDEPARTURE.

    I am very happy for our interceptors, and for the bombers that carry out REAL missile launches. soldier
    But somehow the following phrase guarded me somehow

However, this did not prevent the fighters from detecting the launch of a cruise intruder, escorting it and destroying it using air-to-air missiles before it could reach the target at the Pemba proving ground.

    And if there are not one, but hundreds of such missiles? Can we shoot it down? After all, Yankov's "axes" are also cunning ... cunning ...

      This is unrealistic, there are no chances with a mass launch. Only some small part.

      For reporting to the author and the photographer + (it’s a pity there’s just no photo or video of the moment of interception of the Kyrgyz Republic). But I, apparently, were FIRED by the abundance of good news from ALL the armed forces wink BUT still want something even more impressive and more laughing

    Hundreds of cruise missiles will be launched not by one plane but by an armada, and this armada should already be intercepted at distant approaches. Than? first of all, the work of intelligence so as not to miss the approach and concentration of the enemy, and there it will already be clear how to destroy the enemy. And for training purposes, one intercept a cruise missile and this is a test of equipment and training of personnel. And to criticize when you have nothing to do is a thankless task.

      Tomahawks are still based on ships and submarines. And there they reach a couple of hundred where it comes to something.

        If the time has come to fight, then today it is difficult to pull off invisible striking forces for an attack. There are satellites, electronic intelligence and much more like in science fiction books (Sergey Lukyanenko Autumn visits) But if advance work is not carried out according to the forces drawn by the enemy, then no super weapons will help us.

    I can’t understand how the five MIG-31 can control the vast territory of the Arctic? It is clear if the launch of an enemy rocket is single, but if it is massive? Elementary to the five MIG missiles may not be enough to knock them all

        If the exercises were sudden, then how did you react to the launch of the KR air defense of the Northern Fleet? Really missed, or was previously notified?

          There is no air defense over the Kara Sea - the A-50 flew into an empty airfield and interceptors and air defense appeared during the exercises.
          Comets over Sverdlovsk and Chelyabinsk were discovered visually in fact, and they are more rockets and glow.

      The 31st MiGs are the fourth. The fifth was considered the A-50. So, the total number of missiles is even less. By the way, judging by the photos, two modifications of the Miga flew - DZ and BM. This means that the most recent modification of BM easily interacts with DZ. Not bad!!! good

    so what? trained a couple of crews and then what? it is necessary to work out not with three two crews of one rocket each. and 50-60 aircraft for 20-30 missiles. the enemy will use cruise missiles in large numbers both from aircraft and from floating vehicles.

    The teachings are sudden, that's what they are talking about. And at the expense of the training of crews, so in my country, these MiG-31s ​​have been flying lately, day and night. Probably also getting ready for something.
    The report is more open than before. Talked about the tasks and their implementation. By the way, the pictures are also good.
