Britain Confirms Possibility of Using Pavelway IV Aerial Bombs from Typhoon FightersIn Britain, confirmed the possibility of using guided bombs "Paveway IV" (Paveway IV) development company "Raytheon" (Raytheon) fighter "Typhoon" (Typhoon). The successful completion of a series of tests confirmed the possibility of using Typhoon fighters to carry out strike operations and destroy ground targets. This was reported by the company "BAE Systems" (BAE Systems).


During the tests, the capabilities of the Typhoon fighter were demonstrated to use the Payway IV high-precision guided aerial bombs (UAB) with minimal collateral damage, integrated into the aircraft's weapons control system as part of the first stage of modernization. Now the Typhoon aircraft can carry up to 6 PAW IVs, and foreign customers can expand their arsenals aviation weapons used from aircraft of this type.

Within the framework of the first stage of modernization, the Typhoon’s weapons control system integrated not only Paveway IV, but also the EGBU-16 bombs, as well as the suspended laser designator, which is used on the second series aircraft.

All these improvements, as military experts believe, will strengthen the Typhoon’s position on the world arms market in general, and its aviation segment, in particular.

          “The nuclear cruiser Admiral Nakhimov will return to combat duty in 2018. Works on dismantling the equipment“ The heavy nuclear missile cruiser Admiral Nakhimov will return to the fleet in 2018, ”said Mikhail Budnichenko, General Director of Sevmash. According to Chirkov, "Sevmash" has already started dismantling the old equipment. In August - September 2014, the ship will begin docking, then outfitting work at the wall, the business newspaper "Vzglyad" writes.

          The TARK “Admiral Nakhimov” was mothballed in “Sevmash” for more than ten years. It was supposed to return to service in 2012. However, due to insufficient funding, the scheduled repairs of the ship dragged on for more than a decade. The TARK “Admiral Nakhimov” was mothballed at “Sevmash” for more than ten years. It was supposed to return to service in 2012. However, due to insufficient funding, the scheduled repairs of the ship dragged on for more than a decade. Due to the fact that the ship was being dismantled equipment, there were rumors about its possible disposal. However, the General Staff of the Navy denied these assumptions. “The issue of dismantling the surface nuclear cruisers Admiral Nakhimov, Admiral Ushakov and Admiral Lazarev is not being considered. The Russian Navy needs these powerful nuclear-powered ships. They have no analogues in the world and will return to service with updated and equipped with the latest weapons, ”- assured the representative of the Navy.http: //telegrafist.org/2013/07/08/70929/"
          “He specified that“ the cruiser “Admiral Nakhimov”, the active phase of modernization of which will begin this year, is planned to be transferred to the Pacific Fleet. “Following it, the cruisers“ Admiral Ushakov ”and“ Admiral Lazarev ”will be upgraded, - added the representative of the General Staff According to him, obsolete radio-electronic equipment will be replaced on the heavy cruisers and new computer equipment will be installed. The ships will be equipped with the latest weapons, including replacing the Granit missile system.

          TARK "Admiral Nakhimov" was built at the Baltic Shipyard in Leningrad. He was admitted to the combat strength of the Navy in 1988. The cruiser is designed to destroy large surface ships and protect against air and underwater enemies. The main armament is 20 Granit anti-ship cruise missiles, Fort air defense system (S-300 naval version), Dagger anti-aircraft missiles, AK-130 artillery mount, three Ka-27 helicopters. The power of a nuclear power plant (two reactors) is 140 thousand horsepower. The crew is 655 people. "

      A typhoon is a multi-role fighter. It a priori cannot become a front-line bomber. Which, incidentally, has not been designed by the NATO Air Force for 40-45 years.

        After the accident in Israel suspended flights F-15 and F-16



        An Israeli F-16I fighter with two crew members crashed on July 7 into the Mediterranean Sea. It is reported by Agence France-Presse with reference to the official representative of the armed forces of the country. The crew managed to escape.

        The incident occurred off the coast of the Gaza Strip. The cause of the accident was a technical malfunction of the aircraft engine.

        The pilot and navigator of the crashed plane managed to eject and spent two hours at sea before they were able to be evacuated and delivered to the hospital by helicopter. Their condition is assessed as stable.

        After the incident, the commander of the Israeli Air Force, Major General Amir Eshel, ordered the suspension of all F-15 and F-16 flights during the investigation of the accident.

        In 2012, the Israeli Air Force has already suspended flights of F-16 fighters for inspection in connection with peeling paint, which, according to experts, could damage the engine of the aircraft.

        Earlier in Israel, accidents involving US-made F-16 fighters have already occurred. So, in the summer of 2010, two people died as a result of the crash of an aircraft of this type in the south of the country during a training flight. In 2011, the Israeli Air Force announced its intention to carry out a large-scale modernization of F-16 fighters to extend their service life.

        Just the pilots in the Israeli Air Force are forced to work with maximum loads, even with the risk of disaster. Here is the detail.

        action-in-air force-israel-xnumx /
        And here on F-16 lately.
        Today's F-16 crash is the ninth crash of an aircraft of this type in the Israeli Air Force over the past 15 years. In March of the 2000 year, an attack fighter crashed into the sea during a training flight. Both pilots died. Cars crashed in August of the 2000, in February of the 2003 and in May of the 2005.
        Pilots, fortunately, had time to eject. In all these cases, the cause of the disaster was a technical malfunction. The 13 of September of the 2009 of the year was one of the black days in the history of Israeli military aviation. F-16, piloted by the son of the first Israeli cosmonaut Ilan Ramon - Asaf, fell in the Hebron Highlands. The pilot, for whom this training flight was one of the first after graduating from flight school, did not have time to eject. Both pilots also died in a plane crash on the night of November 11 on 2010. During a routine training flight in the area of ​​the southern Israeli city of Mitzpe Ramon, the F-16 lost control and crashed to the ground. Until the last second, the pilots tried to save the combat vehicle, which went into a tailspin. For military pilots Amihai Itkis and Emmanuel Levy, this training flight was the last.
        Over the past 15 years, the Israeli Air Force has not lost a single F-16 in battle. All disasters involving this type of aircraft were the result of technical malfunctions and pilot errors. Was the human factor the reason why the Israeli Air Force didn’t count yet another war machine worth 70 million shekels? This will find out the army investigation.

          If my first post with humor was incomprehensible, I will say bluntly: How do the actions of the Israeli Air Force relate to this topic? Just because there is the same model of aircraft in service?
          The logical connection, of course, is very "direct", can you devote it to the details of this connection, otherwise I do not catch it being in the dark?

    Well, I don’t know, in my opinion, anyway, a fighter should remain a fighter. And for guided bombs, bombers should be. It is difficult enough to train a pilot in both air combat and bombing at the same time, such unification can and does save money, but in case of a serious conflict it’s sideways ...

        No, unfortunately I did not have a chance to try. And why the conclusion - from the literature of course, about the actions of aviation in local conflicts. Training fighter’s doctors for action against ground targets can only go to the detriment of preparing for aerial combat. You can ask a question then - why if there is a SU-27 (which is flaunted with bombs in your picture) to develop a SU-34? Universality of course is a good thing, but is it justified, is it in all cases?

          Not all literature from the Internet is useful for "picking up" knowledge. Unfortunately, this is not a reproach to you, but a statement of fact).

          They probably read how 2 Israeli F-15s shot down 2 Syrian Su-22s in an air battle ?.

          Therefore, when there was a Union (in the sense of normal Air Force), there were specially specialized schools of IA, IBA, and air defense, where they taught exactly what was needed.

          The question can be of course ... Su-35S is a fighter for gaining superiority in the air, and Su-34th is a specialized front-line bomber with a more advanced ground-based radar, LTPS, the ability to fly on PMV, a long period of time, a modern BKO complex etc. etc.

          In the opinion of universality ... I would put it multifunctionality, then
          I'm for ... specifics!
          THEN THERE WILL NOT BE "THOUGHTS" TO BLIND YAK-130 - "STRATEGIC STORM BOMBER" FROM THE TRAINING BOMBER! (this is not for you, these are thoughts ... aloud drinks )

            I do not argue, there are different sources. But just the articles of the Israeli and Syrian Air Force have nothing to do with it. About the operations of our pilots in the same Afghanistan, when bombs were hung on MIG23 fighters, and how they bombed them without the skills of bombing in mountainous areas. And then how, instead of covering up the Su-25 attack aircraft, they flew out to attack the bombs, and because of this the SU-25 Mr. Rutsky, the Pakistanis on the F-16 shot down ... I just won’t argue that strikes against ground targets in tactics are very different from air combat. Bomber pilots have been studying this for quite some time, and fighters, even if they are seven spans in the forehead, cannot master this tactic as well as bombers, if only because they don’t have so much time to practice receptions. If you know, then tell me, when in local conflicts SU-27 or MIG-29 flew for bombing attacks? I do not know this. They can carry bombs, but this is a backup opportunity, and by no means made as their main use, I think you will not argue with this.

            when in local conflicts SU-27 or MIG-29 flew for bombing attacks?


            Su-27s may not have flown, and the Su-30s can do just that.
            By the way, the Su-34 also has the ability to attack air targets with the R-77 missile.

            Colonel Rutskoi, in fact, violated the flight rules and invaded Pakistan's airspace and was shot down by an F-16 on duty. The MiG-21 aircraft, in Afghanistan, flew repeatedly for military use on ground targets, while both AB and unguided missiles were used, and for your information there is also an IBA fighter-bomber aircraft. And if my memory serves me neither Su-27 nor MiG-29 were used in local conflicts. Both aircraft can calmly strike at ground targets and the KBP program (combat training course) provides such exercises for fighter pilots.

      Equipped with the new P1E software, the Eurofighter Typhoon fighter in the configuration of a multi-purpose aircraft with air-to-surface and air-to-air suspended weapons (2 GBU-16 bombs, an outboard laser sighting container, 2 AIM-9L missiles and outboard fuel tanks) recently conducted a simultaneous drop of two guided bombs on two targets.
      Eurofighter Typhoon attacked and destroyed two different targets at the same time.

      According to the Eurofighter consortium, further successful tests were carried out from the same two-seat fighter with suspension of 2 SRAAM missiles, 4 AMRAAM missiles, two outboard fuel tanks, 4 GBU-16 bombs and an outboard laser sighting container, which is about two times the combat load of the Fighter -sixteen.

      The tests were aimed at confirming that the Typhoon is not only a fighter for gaining air supremacy, but also an effective carrier of high-precision air-to-surface weapons, as was proved in air operations in Libya.

      Paveway IV is a kit for the modernization of free-falling bombs Mk82 caliber 500 pounds (227 kilograms) in high-precision weapons. It includes a noise-protected dual-mode GPS and a laser guidance system and a programmable Aurora fuse that can fire at a certain height, at a set time, or in a collision with a target.

        Good evening Sergey! Yes, it is clear that it is specific. I have been saying for a long time that if scientists working in the military field transferred their ingenuity to something creative, they would have defeated cancer long ago, would have taught people to move independently after spinal injuries, and humanity would have acquired many other useful things. And a "smart" bomb, no matter how high-tech it may be, is easier to make than an artificial heart ... When I read such news, such thoughts always pop into my head. That is why I flirt. And we also developed similar things. In the early 2000s. I know ...

    Maybe I’m asking something wrong. Now they threaten us with high-precision weapons that will destroy our military potential within an hour .. and the military-industrial complex ... The retaliatory strike will naturally be the means of strategic nuclear weapons, which will remain with us and the retaliatory strike will be powerful (with taking into account even what remains) .. and the world will be over .. The men will reflect the question without the use of nuclear weapons ??? It’s just alarming all this very much and I don’t want to die in atomic agony .. If I agree in the attack .. !!!

      Let's reflect. As the saying goes, "be afraid, but doubt, but do not dare underestimate"!
      "They" are businessmen. They think no worse than "our" reformers. Showed-strained-and forgotten.
      In general, all these hinges on the old bomb speak more about their effort to take a break than about aggression.

      They are ready to produce not so many "high-precision" weapons, let alone keep them in warehouses.
