Russian aviation is getting on the wing

47
The Russian Air Force conducts a series of exercises that are aimed at developing refueling techniques in the air, as well as combat use aviation. The intensity of combat training in recent years has grown significantly, which makes many observers wonder about the goals and objectives of the Russian Air Force. Currently, the practice of combat training has increasingly begun to include “sudden checks” of combat readiness of units. Depending on the level of verification, individual units, military units or formations are raised in the country by alarm. The purpose and meaning of these checks is to evaluate the real combat readiness of units and subunits in practice, not in words.


Such inspections were carried out regularly before, but in the post-Soviet period they became quite rare, and their organization made it possible to obtain information in advance about the date of their conduct, which nullified the whole idea. Nowadays, the number of inspections has grown, and their preparation allows us to obtain a more or less objective picture of the state of combat readiness of subunits, identify shortcomings that are common to the entire system and specific to particular parts, and then eliminate them. It is planned to carry out surprise inspections in the future: they will be regularly held by all military districts and types of the Armed Forces. Several years of such activity - and the habit of constant readiness for action will enter into the flesh and blood of the commanders, which is probably the main purpose of such checks.

Recall that the beginning of a new surprise test of the Russian army, Chief of the General Staff, Army General Valery Gerasimov, announced 27 on May 2013 of the year. This check continued for 3's days. 1 combat aircraft, 185 armored combat vehicles and almost 240 thousands of military personnel were involved in checking the combat readiness of military units and formations of the armed forces of the East Kazakhstan region, the Military Transport and Long-Range Aviation, and the 9 command of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Western Military District.

Russian aviation is getting on the wing


During an unscheduled inspection, the MiG-31 interceptor fighters took up continuous combat duty in the north of the country. The strategic bombers of the Tu-95MS, which took off from an air base in the Saratov region, played the role of a conditional opponent at the exercises. In addition to aerial bombs, these strategic bombers are armed with various cruise missiles.

According to the results of the measures taken, the Minister of Defense of Russia Sergey Shoigu evaluated the units of the Air Force and the Aerospace Defense ready to repel a possible aerospace attack and promised to continue the practice of conducting such checks. “The final results of the surprise check will be announced later, but we can already say that, in general, the troops of the Air Force and the East Kazakhstan region are able to accomplish the tasks of repelling an enemy from an aerospace attack, transferring troops to designated regions and destroying enemy ground targets” - Sergei Shoigu said at the conference call at the General Staff Center.

On May 30, representatives of the Russian Ministry of Defense reported that in the course of the conducted test of the combat readiness of the troops, the MiG-31 fighter-interceptors had detected and then hit cruise missiles of a potential enemy. Earlier, Sergei Shoigu reported to Vladimir Putin that 9 from 11 missiles that had been fired by a conditional opponent were intercepted during the exercises. The Russian president responded by saying that “the result is in principle satisfactory.”



Constantly appearing news Regular exercises in the Air Force and in other types of the Russian Armed Forces often give rise to speculations about the “unexpected activity” of the Russian army, as well as its possible consequences. But everything falls into place if this activity is assessed in comparison with the previous period of the Soviet / Russian stories. Nowadays, due to the increase in defense spending of the Russian Federation, it is able to return to the already forgotten practice of normal combat training. At the turn of 1990-2000-s, the main part of Russian military pilots, for example, had a total flying time of 20 hours per year, while there were those pilots who flew even less: in 5-6 hours per year. This training was more dangerous, first of all, for the Air Forces of the country themselves than for our potential opponents: the de-qualification of the pilots made virtually any flight a kind of Russian roulette game.

In this regard, the example of the major Russian Air Force Valery Troyanov, whose Su-27 fighter crashed on the territory of Lithuania 15 September 2005 of the year after he ran out of fuel, is indicative. The pilot, rarely rising into the sky, simply lost his orientation during the flight from the Siversky airfield (in the Leningrad region) to the Chkalovsk airfield (in the Kaliningrad region). And now the Minister of Defense of Lithuania expresses concern about the increased activity of the Russian Air Force. The average flight time of our pilots began to grow, starting around 2007-2008. By 2010, this figure has already exceeded 70 hours per year, and in 2012 year - 100 hours. At this point in time, the state of the aviation fleet, as well as the economic capabilities of the Air Force, makes it possible to bring this figure to 150 hours per year, and this is already more than in the Air Force of an overwhelming number of countries in the world.

One of the main elements of the combat training of the Russian Air Force today has been the refueling of airplanes in the air. Practically at the same time, refueling exercises were held in the Western and Central Military Districts of the country, dozens of military aircraft were involved in them. The scale of these exercises could be even larger, but it is strictly limited by the number of IL-78 aircraft tankers in service. A temporary solution to the problem is that the suspension for combat aircraft of the petrol unit UPAZ only partially corrects the situation.



In general, it can be noted that refueling airplanes in the air today is urgently needed for the Russian Air Force - without it, rapid transfer of aircraft to the right place under its own power is impossible, and given the limited financial resources that do not allow the military to increase Air Force forces throughout Russia, operational maneuver becomes almost the main key to the defense of the state. In the future, the Russian Air Force plans to continue purchasing aircraft tankers, their fleet will only grow. But in order to achieve a positive effect, it is worth considering not only the acquisition of strategic tankers of the IL-78 type, but also smaller tactical aircraft, the units of which could be subordinated to the military districts air command. And, of course, preparation is necessary - refueling aircraft in the air, especially at night or in bad weather conditions, is a rather complicated process that requires good training from pilots. In this case we are talking about both the crew of the tanker aircraft and the crew of the aircraft being filled.

Currently, pilots of the Western Military District are becoming one of the most flying in Russia. The pilots of this district spent over 20 thousands of hours in the sky and made more than 1500 sorties for the combat use of aircraft, which significantly exceeds the performance of other aviation associations and commands. Ongoing intensive combat training, as well as flights to various ranges, regular flight tactical exercises, flights with air refueling allowed the personnel of the ZVO to have more raids than in all other districts, and also to make the most of sorties for combat use in all Air Forces country.

The winter period of training for the unification of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Western Military District with a sudden unscheduled check of combat readiness, which was carried out at the direction of Russian Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu, ended. More than 100 fighter and bomber aircraft of the ZVO were involved in the test. During 3 days, district pilots in practice worked out the tasks of redeploying aviation and ground combat equipment, as well as personal and technical staff to operational airfields, with work on organizing camouflage, conditional enemy air defense units, and the interception of aircraft on combat duty from new airfields. The Su-24M and Su-34 front-line bombers conducted bombing at ground targets, flying from operational airfields. The MiG-29SMT fighter pilots practiced air combat elements with the search and detection of conditional enemy aircraft in the sky and their subsequent destruction, while the MiG-31 fighter-interceptors solved the tasks of intercepting the conventional enemy cruise missiles.



During the winter training period, all young pilots graduates of the 2012 of the year underwent retraining for aircraft that are in service with units and subunits of the Western Military District, and began to make independent flights. Today, young pilots are involved in scheduled flights along with experienced crews. In the completed training period, the average flight time for a young pilot was more than 50 hours. In addition to participating in the planned flights, the crews of the army aviation were able to complete the course and were allowed to perform flights aimed at eliminating ice jams during the flood and allowing for flights to extinguish forest fires.

In the summer of 2013, the intensity of flights will only increase, it is actively planned to work out the most complex elements of combat training of personnel, the number of flights with air refueling and flight shifts at night will increase.

        guided weapons are very expensive! And on bombs, pilots learn how to hit the target correctly! You need to start from scratch! In any minor conflict, it’s easier to bombard the enemy with conventional bombs than to launch one that is manageable. The economic benefits of now come to the fore

      but this photo didn’t really please me. Again, as 50 years ago, airplanes were built in a ruler, most likely they are. Earlier, it seemed that the caponiers for them were building, at least earthen, in the form of a rampart from 3 sides, but now this is wrong to nothing, no one is suddenly going to attack us. :(

    Lack of tankers is a problem that needs to be fixed urgently.

          So that all the planes were gray - this was a resolution of Serdyukov. When Shoigu played in the more right direction - now they will paint depending on the color of the area where these aircraft are based.

    Recently, airplanes have been constantly circling around the house performing training flights. The last time this happened more than 20 years ago. This fact tells me better than any publications that aviation is really reviving! the Shagol air base closest to us, I think, I think, they fly from there.

        Technique itself does not fight without a man, for now, alas! Aircraft can be built relatively quickly, if there was a desire, or you could buy them at worst, if you suddenly lock, if there is no time for creation. But here are the shots ... the pilots !!! Himself not a pilot, seasoned from aviation appear on the forum, will explain! But I know that earlier, in Soviet times, according to the standards, a normally trained IA pilot (IBA) after school only 2/3 years later was considered to have fully mastered the technique that he pilots and was accordingly considered suitable for its application in real databases, but. .. only in solo flight. To work in a group, as part of a unit / squadron, the period of its preparation in the regiment was even more extended, since this is a more complex type of database that requires more interaction from the pilots. So this despite the fact that previously there was someone to learn young in combat regiments, there was a succession of generations, experience, and today ... the qualifications of most pilots, even at the level of comasco and above, are most likely low (the reasons are stated in the article) and from whom to learn ?? ? And this is precisely the main problem of our Air Force, however, like the Navy and MA, and not the lack of ultramodern aircraft in service, as many people moan on the forum.

    Why the hell with building hundreds of tankers, when you can just have a couple of dozen airfields in the depths of the country with kerosene reserves through which any jet can be driven from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok in a day?

    Just again, there is a substitution of concepts, strategic transfer of aviation during the threatened period to a potential theater of operations and an increase in the tactical range of light attack aircraft (not everyone has a Su-27 class cruiser) and heavy patrol time, the number of the latter does not exceed several tens for each model, and In principle, a couple of dozen tankers will ensure their work without any problems.

    In practice, a Su-27 pilot will simply sit in the cockpit for about 4 hours while refueling, without any refueling, are you going to drive cars without landing for 8-12 hours, and then expect something else from the pilot?

    It recalls ensuring the autonomy of the ship’s connection by installing an atomic reactor on a cruiser, so this huge and fantastically expensive cruiser can sail for 10 years without reloading the reactor, only with it there will still be an escort of diesel destroyers, diesel tankers, hospitals and transports with ammunition and a grunt because people cannot eat plutonium. And this whole group every 1-3 months will be sure to go to some of their bases.

        during a refueling in the air, even a trained pilot (especially the one that refueles) gets tired and loses weight by more than two landings !! This is a very difficult type of piloting.
        In the photo IB Su-24, used as an air tanker. He runs the MiG-31, interceptor. Personally, it seems to me the use of a front-line bomber in the form of a tanker is utter stupidity. In the mid-90s, after the 91st, they wrote off a huge number of old, but still quite long-term strategists of the Tu-16, whose transfer to the air tanker took a little time and money. Technology was worked out in the USSR. These aircraft were full, but they were most likely cut and broken then everything! And now we shout that it is necessary to build the IL-78 from scratch, but this is not a penny, sorry! And don’t need to write here that we only need everything new, like spoiled fashionistas. For fueling purposes they would more than fit! But for the military-industrial complex, of course, it’s more interesting to build a new one, because money, kickbacks, theft ...

          And you thought that the plane spends a lot of fuel and time on takeoff, and the more fuel it takes, the less the combat load. A tanker allows this problem to be reduced.

      A fighter must land at its airfield where its missiles are stored. There is such a unit as the position for the preparation of missiles with test equipment, which you will need 10 IL-12 to transfer to another airfield with missile ammunition for 6-76 aircraft. This requires refueling, in addition to this, a fighter can use up half of its BC. If there is an oxygen generation unit on board, then fly to it according to operational necessity. To increase physical endurance: a gym on days of pre-training, and not drill reviews in a harness and boots, a compulsory ticket to a sanatorium free of charge, twice a year vacation, preventive treatment with the best medical equipment, meals adjusted by age, climate and season, an apartment with a separate room for the head of the family is if we understand how much it costs to prepare a fighter pilot and how much his liner costs both in terms of money and in terms of its weight in operational terms, in the sense that if, due to poor rest, the pilot and the plane fail, then at the factory they will not make a new plane, the line is stopped and dismantled, and the pilot must wait 8 years. Optimization and bargaining are not appropriate in this matter. So, briefly.

        IL-76 will fly much farther without refueling than the Su-27. And has no equipment for refueling. The need for the transfer of a huge amount of personnel and ammunition is only emphasized by the absurdity of tankers, who are not assistants in this matter, but instead of every tanker, which, incidentally, isn’t needed in peacetime, you can make a regular transporter. And transport workers are in short supply, in the threatened period there will be a lot of people who claim them and all the same, land investigators will mostly go by train.

          You contradict yourself. Refuellers remove the problem of using the components of the aviation group during the database, when they are needed for the transfer of reserves. One zaprashchik having given 40 tons of kerosene in the air increases the radius of action of the IA squadron by 50 points. ONE. The previously mentioned 6 Ilov transferring MSB to where it is very necessary.

                and this is because when the Union needed it, he built several military factories. Now Russia is not up to the factories, people are on the street, I want to eat. Here and go wherever they look. They go to Russia in the old way thinking that there are brothers. and there are neo-fascists skinheads.

                  Yeah, and these "skinhead fascists" are asked for autonomy, merrily, etit.
                  Those. like this: "fascists skinheads give us autonomy so that it is convenient for us to live and work" laughing

                  "Moldovan social activists have proposed to create a Moldavian Autonomous Okrug on the territory of Russia," Lenta.ru reports, citing Moldnews.

                  According to Pan.md, the association “My Moldova” wrote a corresponding letter to Vladimir Putin. According to the source, the letter contains a request to “grant autonomy to Moldovan citizens who want to work and live in the Russian Federation”.

      I haven’t read it, but I’m sure that the number 16 means combat-ready, which means that they will be ready within 2/4 hours upon receipt of the order to go to sea. There are much more ships in the payroll of the Russian fleet today! But this is sad of course !! A modern warship is a more complex technique than even a combat aircraft.

    the article is correct, positive, even if with some optimistic slight embellishment, but it is necessary, the morale of both military personnel and the people must be raised! It is time to get out of the oppressed suppressed state of the nation, if only it was not a game of flabby muscles in front of a mirror. Indeed, in the world it really starts to smell, and even not with violets, but with preparations for a large redivision of the world! I think that stupid people have long understood this. We would still have the country's leadership would be more real, huh ?:

    What I would like to see during such inspections is: 1. Air and missile-artillery strikes against a cluster of troops. 2. Reflection of air raid by troops, or exit from a missile-artillery strike. 2. Oncoming collision. 3. Organization of mobile defense. 4. The implementation of passive defense. 5. Ensuring security on communications, and conducting search and punitive operations against sabotage groups (compounds). 6. Air and ground intercepts.
    Very relevant topics contribute to a proper understanding of the situation and an adequate reaction to actions, counteractions. Especially when they act, not against a conditional opponent, but real rivals each act for their own purpose.
