Russia decided to increase the number of aircraft at the air base in Kyrgyzstan

17
The number of aircraft at the Russian Kant airbase in Kyrgyzstan will double by December 2013, commander of the second command of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Central Military District of Russia Viktor Sevostyanov said at a ceremony marking the tenth anniversary of the opening of the base.


“It was decided that by December of this year the number of aircraft will be at least doubled,” he said.



The flight strength of the military unit will also be increased. According to the commander, it was also decided that the military personnel of the base will not be limited to any time spent on the base.
On Saturday, a solemn ceremony is held in Kyrgyzstan dedicated to the 10 anniversary of the opening of the CSTO base, reminds RIA "News».

Kant airbase was opened in 2003. She is aviation component of the Collective Rapid Deployment Forces of the CSTO.

The airbase was rented for 49 years in 2009, and, according to the terms of the relevant agreement, it can be extended for 25 years. Each year, Moscow pays Bishkek more than 4,5 million dollars for this base.

It should be noted that in the autumn of 2009, negotiations began on the creation of a joint Russian military base in Kyrgyzstan instead of the four military facilities that are currently separate: the submarine test base weapons in Karakol, a military communications center in Kara-Balt, a radio seismic laboratory in Mailuu-Suu, and an air base in Kant.

Moscow explained this by the fact that all the Russian bases located in Kyrgyzstan were regulated by various agreements and stayed there under different conditions. Creating a single database can simplify the process of managing and providing this facility.

    Good news.
    Against this background, another news came

    US Decides to Transfer Manas Base to Kyrgyzstan by July 2014
    The US intends to transfer the Manas base to the Kyrgyz government by July 2014, said General William Fraser, head of the US Armed Forces Transport Command.
    http://www.vz.ru/news/2013/10/28/656906.html

    Hence the conclusion that in the near future Russia will increase the number of aircraft but already in Manas, after the Americans leave there. This will be two bases.

      To compensate for the Americans’s withdrawal from Manas, NATO’s withdrawal from Afghanistan is not at hand for us, the border in Tajikistan will immediately flare up, there are already talks about the return of our border guards ...

      Russian air base "Kant" in Kyrgyzstan celebrated its 10th anniversary
      The southernmost outpost of Russian aviation - the base "Kant", located in Kyrgyzstan, celebrated its 10th anniversary. It is an air base in the Central Military District, and it is also the largest flight unit of those abroad. Today, hundreds of Russian officers and soldiers are serving there. In honor of the holiday, a memorial stele was opened on the territory of the military camp, but the main gift was prepared by colleagues from the famous Russian Knights aerobatic team. Demonstrated their skills in the sky of Kyrgyzstan.

      In the near future, the base will be expanded: they will purchase new, most modern equipment and increase the flight crew. Two new buildings are being completed for new employees.

    Currently, 5 Su-25 attack planes, 2 Mi-8 helicopters and several L-39 training aircraft are based there. Now 250 Russian officers and 150 conscripts are serving there.
    Probably add a few fighters.
    Performances of "Russian Knights" in honor of the anniversary:

      By the way, the issue of the Su-35S squadron which should be delivered to Dzemgi, where at the moment the Su-27SM is currently in the amount of 2 squadrons, was recently discussed.
      they say that one Su-27SM squadron will probably be handed over somewhere.
      maybe just in Kant what

    It is an aviation component of the Collective Rapid Deployment Forces of the Collective Security Treaty Organization.

    soooo that is, it turns out, the base for general purposes
    then with what
    Every year, Moscow pays Bishkek more than 4,5 million dollars for this base.

    What is the point of increasing the number of aircraft?
    The mere presence of at least 100 aircraft at the airbase gives little.
    The goal should be such events, for example, the destruction of crops of drugs and terrorist gangs (while the goal of increasing the grouping of aircraft is unclear)

    In fact, Bishkek should pay Moscow for the base in Kant. Indeed, in essence, the base stands in the first place to protect the interests of Kyrgyzstan.

      These interests can quickly change with the replacement of one buy by another - this has happened more than once.
      Governments do not live there for a long time and the clan structure of society reminds me of a shaky swamp, and our air base is hehe in the middle of this place.

    If the base in Kant belongs to the CSTO. why then there are only RF aircraft? why other CSTO members do not pay for it?

      The Kyrgyz are in the Collective Security Treaty Organization and must pay the most - there is a base on their land.
      If there is nobody besides Russia, why should Minsk pay? Who dances - he pays.
      In general, there is a symbolic payment - Russia provides more in the form of training and weapons for 1 billion. Kazakhstan presented 300 million weapons.
      4,5 million - this is so for laughs.

    Well, there now, not only airplanes will be needed, it is necessary to bring all the worst there, so that, first of all, in Afghanistan they would understand that it wouldn’t be the infantry to slaughter them if they were a knocker, but they would hammer them with artillery, tanks, planes and mercilessly.

      Against the armies, this will pass, but against small detachments of saboteurs penetrating under the guise of merchants, etc. this is not very effective. We need special squads and a network of informants.

        I agree, of course, but there’s never a word about such detachments, but they are already there unequivocally.

        I hope they will take into account the Afghan experience of NATO "drones", there will be drones against small detachments and special detachments with informants in our country. Otherwise, all this "dirt" and chaos in the near future may end up in Kazakhstan and Russia.

      In this situation, it is necessary to strengthen the base in Tajikistan. Since edging is primarily an aviation component, there is nothing to do artillery on the runway. And so, on the whole, I agree that it is necessary to strengthen the southern borders, since after the United States leaves Afghanistan, all this shushera can reach us ...

    Another important goal of this event, in my opinion, is the so-called "flyby" of the territory by as many pilots as possible. This area is very difficult in terms of flying, finding targets, orienteering, etc.
    And the more pilots will know the area of ​​possible combat actions the better.
    And if, God forbid, many predictions happen, do not send an unprepared flight crew there.
