Belarus sold su-24 bombers to Sudan

25
This is a local blog. secret-difa3 (translation - charter97.org).


“The mystery that Su-24 bombers from Belarus were shrouded in has finally been solved. After rumors that they were handed over to Yemen, a dozen planes were spotted at the Wadi Sayidna airbase near the city of Omdurman, along with Belarusian personnel and crews, ”says a statement dated 18 August 2013.

The blog published photos of the aircraft.

Belarus sold su-24 bombers to Sudan


The report also notes that Sudanese air forces also recently received a Su-25 party from Belarus. This light bomber is mainly used in rebel operations and air support operations.

“The appearance of the Su-24 in the Khartoum weapons structure will give Sudan air forces considerable firepower. This will allow Sudan to carry out deep strikes in the event of conflicts with any of its troubled neighbors, ”- said in a statement in the blog.

Last year, all Su-24 bombers were removed from the Armed Forces of Belarus.

“You know that in aviation there is such a thing - a flight resource. According to the glider and the engine, ”explained Belarusian Minister of Defense Yuri Zhadobin in February 2012. He also recalled that in the days of the USSR, the Belarusian military district was one of the first to rearm. Therefore, Su-24 bombers arrived here earlier, which means they were produced earlier than other samples. “The planes were not the first freshness,” added the lieutenant general.

International organizations have previously reported that weapon and military equipment produced in Belarus are used by the Sudanese authorities in military conflicts in the country. Deliveries from Minsk to an African country bypass the UN sanctions.

One of them - the conflict in Darfur - broke out in 2003, when non-Arab rebels opposed the central government. As a result of hostilities, according to international observers, over 300 thousands of people died.

The UN imposed weapons sanctions on Darfur in 2004. A year later, they were expanded throughout Sudan. The ruler of this African country, Omar al-Bashir, was accused of genocide and war crimes by the International Criminal Court.

UN experts say that Sudan has violated the Security Council resolution of organization No. XXUMX and they are demanding its tightening.

      Why do we need them, if you can push Sudan. Belarus was going to withdraw them from service, if I am not mistaken. Their resource was running out, in Russia they will also gradually get rid of them and change to 34-ku. Well, if we in Limpopo are able to vparit any of them

      we ourselves have such aircraft, those Soviet years, still in bulk, so we would not have bought, instead of the Su-24, we now need the Su-34, but I don’t agree on less winked (as in the song), since about debts, why can Russia "write off the debt" to an Asian country, but Belarusians cannot request Why amers can spit on the UN, than others worse repeat

      Well done Belarusians, they were given offensive weapons to UN sanctions like toilet paper, and we couldn’t even deliver the S-300 to Iran, because the Yankees only yelled.

    Retirement of obsolete machines is generally routine, but only with the proportional replacement of new equipment, such an action can be called rational. Something I do not remember from the brothers about the intention to acquire new cars.
    The Sudanese military is probably not complete fools, they understand what a resource of an airframe with an engine is and would not buy equipment unfit for operation. Repair and modernization for his army would be a much more correct step for the Belarusians.

      Normal if there is a replacement. Neither Germany nor Britain have yet given up on their Panavia Tornado, but are modernizing it.

          Yeah, it would be where to buy. Russia itself will switch to the Su-34 for a long time. Perhaps the Chinese "Leopards" ... Then why write off the better front-line bombardier?

        Germany will reduce their number from 175 to 85, they are betting on Typhoon. And the UK by 2015 will completely withdraw from service.

    The first time I heard that the SU-25 was called a light bomber. Who is the author of the article at least familiar with a bit of air technology?

    Su-24 bombers "bombed" their own for Belarus, their resource is exhausted.
    Sudan takes second-hand aircraft as needed, Belarus sells used equipment whenever possible.

    They put everything right ... better than rotting in a "spare lane" .. And if God forbid that happens, then Russia and Belarus are in the wrong part of the Earth where these outdated copies can be something competitive in the conflict .. Let Sudan learn to fly .. the next step will be contracts for the supply of our own more modern aircraft .. not all at once, friends ..

    They probably write off the agreement with Russia on replacing them with new ones (purchase), or that Russia will cover the sky over Belarus with its airplanes (the Russian air force base) .And without such agreements, you probably shouldn’t sell still flying aircraft (they can be modernized and extended) .

    This is on condition that the pennies are rich, but with this just strained. To contain, and even upgrade such machines, Old Man is expensive, it is easier to open the base. Well, what sold past sanctions - well done good luck thieves happiness laughing and no Booth was tied up.

    They didn’t take it out of service, but it’s not known how to replace it. Moreover, in Belarus itself it is generally tight with aviation, due to the large wear of the equipment.
    Over the past few years, the Air Force of Belarus has written off more than fifty units of combat aircraft, not counting helicopters, having purchased at the same time, absolutely zero aircraft.

    http://afn.by/news/i/179950

    5 more crashed.
    Here are the data on Belarusian air crashes:
    2009 crashed Su-27 two corpses. Materials are classified
    2010 crashed MiG-29 pilot managed to eject
    2010 crashed MiG-29 two corpses. Materials are classified
    2011 crashed helicopter of State Border Committee five corpses
    2011 crashed Mi-24 air force three corpses
    2012 crashed Su-25 corpse. Materials are classified
    Total: 4 of the year 6 machines
    There are only 2 squadrons of MiG-29 left in the whole country. Not so long ago, an airplane flew from Lithuania to Belarus, flew to Minsk, circled around, scattered propaganda materials, the famous "bear landing" and flew away. The air defense of Belarus did not see him.
    However, Sudan is buying aircraft not only from Belarus:
    In 2011, Rosoboronexport OJSC signed a contract for the delivery to Sudan of 12 Mi-24 combat helicopters and six Mi-8MT transport helicopters, taken from the presence of the Russian Air Force and undergoing repairs with modernization. During the modernization, new VK-8 engines were installed on the Mi-2500MT helicopters, improving their characteristics of helicopters in hot climates and bringing their characteristics to the level of Mi-8MTV. The delivery of helicopters to Sudan was successfully implemented in 2012.
    In May 2013, during the HeliRussia exhibition, Sudan concluded new contracts with Rosoboronexport for the supply of an additional batch of 12 Mi-24 helicopters and 12 Mi-8MT helicopters (also with the installation of new engines) with the possibility of increasing this number to 18 units for each type ...
    ... the delivery of eight Mi-24s from Russia to Sudan was mentioned in a February 2013 letter from the chairman of the UN Security Council Committee, Maria Cristina Perceval, to the chairman of the UN Security Council commission on compliance with UN resolutions in Darfur, a region of protracted ethnic conflict. UN Security Council resolutions prohibit the government of Sudan from using military aircraft there. According to a source close to the Russian Ministry of Defense, the supply of helicopters does not violate the Security Council sanctions, and the Sudanese side provided obligations to not use these weapons in Darfur. Sudan buys weapons in Belarus: from the same letter to the UN Security Council it follows that in 2008-2010, Belarus delivered 12 Su-25 attack aircraft and three Su-25UB attack aircraft to Sudan. According to a source close to Rosoboronexport, Sudan has begun negotiations to purchase 18 former Indian Su-30K fighters owned by Irkut Corporation and stored at an aircraft repair plant in Belarus.

    I look like the Sudanese Air Force for Africa is becoming fucking self. Not Egypt, of course, but still ... I only have a suspicion that Sudanese simply do not have so many pilots on such sophisticated machines. Are Ukrainian or Belarusian crews included in the spare parts? There is a feeling that Sudan is preparing for a revenge. in order to regain South Sudan, which declared independence in 2012. Yours faithfully! hi

    Old Man has sold already written-off planes, by the way well done business, I’m interested in something else, namely, how does our CSTO ally plan to strengthen its Air Force? It’s time for the Old Man to start acquiring new aircraft, we need a strong ally.
