Military development aviation - priority in the construction of the Armed Forces of Russia


What changes are waiting for our Air Force in the near future? Will the distortions and excesses in their reform, made by the previous leadership of the Ministry of Defense, be corrected? What are expected in the near future arrivals of new military equipment? These and other questions specifically for the "MIC" were answered by the Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force, Lieutenant-General Viktor Bondarev.

"MIC": Viktor Nikolaevich, it became known that the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is preparing a partial change in the structure of the Air Force. Is this decision connected with the results of a sudden check of the troops and forces of the Eastern Military District?

- The change in the structure of the Air Force will be expressed in a return to the organizational structure of the “division - regiment” in the aviation of the Air Force. And also in the re-formation of air defense and aerospace defense brigades in the air defense division. Proposals for a return to the divisional-regimental structure of the Air Force were developed on the basis of the results of the conducted analysis of the functioning of the Air Force under the existing organizational structure. Identified a number of problematic issues related to the organization of management, solving problems of flight training. As a result, the decision was made to return to the former structure of the “aviation division - aviation regiment”.

Prospective basing in general will not change. The main criterion for determining it will be basing one regiment on one airfield. Conducted surprise checks of the Southern, Eastern, Western military districts, as well as the Air Force and the Aerospace Defense Forces only confirmed the correctness of this decision.

In addition, work is underway to recreate the educational and scientific complex of the Armed Forces type. The military educational and scientific center of the Air Force "Air Force Academy named after Professor N. E. Zhukovsky and Yu. A. Gagarin" was returned to the Air Force, as well as a number of research centers, on the basis of which the Central Scientific Research Institute of the Air Force was formed forces

"MIC": Will the proposed changes affect the functioning of military airfields, especially in hard-to-reach areas of Russia (particularly in the Arctic), where there are no civilian airports, and many of the runways belonging to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation are in poor condition?

- The scheme of functioning of military airfields will practically not change, while the intensity of their use will significantly increase, including those located in remote areas of Russia, including in the Far North. The air force currently has the necessary financial and material resources to maintain the operational viability of these airfields. At the same time, together with the repair of the runways, we will organize the work on the modernization of the airfield infrastructure facilities, as well as residential towns.

"MIC": When can be signed a contract for the supply of tanker Il-78 for the Air Force?

- A promising tanker aircraft is being created as part of the development work, which is ordered by the Russian Ministry of Defense. The deadline is 2015 year. After creating the design documentation and carrying out the relevant tests, the promising tanker aircraft will be put into service, and it will be procured in the amounts stipulated by the State Armaments Program-2020.

Common sense course

As for the existing fleet of tankers such as the IL-78, it will be modernized. The operation of these aircraft is provided up to 2030 year inclusive.

"MIC": Has there been any clarity in the signing of the contract between the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and the Russian Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation "MiG" for the supply of MiG-35С fighters?

- The MiG-35S aircraft is being created by RAC MiG OJSC as part of its initiative development work on a tactical and technical assignment issued by the Russian Ministry of Defense. But, as you understand, until the end of the development and testing of the aircraft, its purchase is not possible. I can only say that tentatively purchases will be possible from 2016 year.

"MIC": If we talk about the testing of fifth-generation aircraft in the V. P. Chkalov State Flight Test Center (Akhtubinsk, Astrakhan Region), what are the preliminary results?

- Currently, the fifth-generation multi-purpose fighter PAK FA is undergoing factory testing. Everything is going according to plan and by the end of 2013, it will be accepted for state tests in the 929 of the GLITs of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

"MIC": And yet, when can we approximately expect to receive it into mass production?

- Let me remind you that the promising aviation complex of front-line aviation is being created as part of the development work envisaged by the LG-2020. Before going into the series, prototypes of the aircraft must pass state tests, which will last at least three years. After checking the aircraft for compliance with the requirements of the tactical and technical tasks, it will go into service.

"MIC": Little is known about the promising long-range aviation complex (PAK DA). How will it differ from the Tu-160 and Tu-95MS?

- Considered by the Russian Defense Ministry as a promising long-range aviation complex, this aircraft will include all the best features of modern long-range aviation aircraft (Tu-160, Tu-95MS, Tu-22М3). PAK DA will be equipped with all promising types of high-precision weapons.

"MIC": When can we expect its mass production?

- I think at the beginning of the next decade.

MIC: You stated that the MiG-31 will be replaced by a new interceptor aircraft, which the Air Force expects to receive by 2020 year. Will it be created on the basis of a promising front-line aviation complex (PAK FA) or is it a fundamentally different project? What scientific organizations are developing it?

- From 2013, the Su-35С multifunctional fighter will begin to flow into the air units. The complex of aircraft armament and tactical-technical data of the aircraft allow it to solve the tasks of long-range interception of air targets. Modern long-range air-to-air missiles Su-35С aircraft will be equipped by 2015 year.

Taking into account the decommissioning of the MiG-31 type aircraft in the next decade due to the expiration of service life, the new promising Su-35С and PAK FA aviation complexes will be procured in the required amount and will ensure the solution of the Air Defense tasks on air defense.

Along with the enterprises of the United Aircraft Building Corporation, the enterprises of the Tactical Missile Weapons Corporation participate in the creation of new airborne intercept systems.

"MIC": What other modern aviation complexes already in service with the Air Force, we can talk today?

- These are Su-30CM, Su-35С combat aircraft and Ka-52, Mi-28Н helicopters. The Tu-160, Tu-95MS strategic aircraft currently being upgraded, the A-50U long-range radar detection aircraft, modern transport assault helicopters of all types, including the Ansat-U training helicopter, the Yak-130 training aircraft.

By the way, the exposition of military aviation and air defense complexes presented at MAKS-2013 characterized the scientific and industrial strength of the Russian defense industry, showed the world the main directions of its development, attracting foreign orders for samples of domestic military aviation and air defense weapons.

"MIC": What types of weapons and military equipment developed for air defense?

- To solve the problems of air defense, the Air Force has already received the latest C-400, Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile systems and the Nebo-M radar systems. At present, the Vityaz-PVO air defense missile system and the Container over-the-horizon radar station are under test.

"MIC": When will our Armed Forces get the first set of last-generation air defense systems, the C-500? How many divisions of these systems can an army get by 2020?

- A prospective anti-aircraft missile system C-500 is under development, its adoption is planned for up to 2020 year.

The terms and volumes of the C-500 ZRS supply to the troops are planned in accordance with the decision of the President of the Russian Federation to ensure that the types and types of the Armed Forces are up-to-date with modern weapons, military and special equipment. They will help maintain the necessary level of troop combat readiness and the performance of air defense tasks by concentrating the main efforts on particularly important strategic facilities.

“MIC”: Not much is known about this system. What tactical and technical characteristics will it have?

- The C-500 anti-aircraft missile system will be able to accomplish the task of destroying operational-tactical missiles, medium-range missiles, as well as targets in near space.

As a reference, I’ll inform you that the C-500 ZRS is supposed to apply the principle of separately solving the tasks of destroying ballistic and aerodynamic targets. The main task is to combat the combat equipment of medium-range ballistic missiles, and, if necessary, intercontinental ballistic missiles in the final segment of the trajectory. The anti-aircraft missile system will hit both hypersonic aircraft and cruise missiles at low altitudes.

C-500 will provide cover for selected major cities, industrial sites and priority strategic objectives. In terms of its combat capabilities, the ZRS will significantly surpass the C-400 Triumph system currently in service and its foreign counterpart - the American THAAD.

There are a number of requirements for a promising C-500 system. This is an extended range of speeds and types of targets to be hit, increased noise immunity, expansion of the affected areas, unification, integration with other fire weapons and types of air defense systems. It should also have the highest possible mobility, the ability to work in any climatic conditions and to function effectively in the conditions of using means of overcoming air defense and missile defense.

"MIC": Is there a shortage of personnel in the Air Force of Russia, in which areas is it most felt?

- Minor deficiency is present. In order to replenish it, the focus is on working with officers. After a three-year break, we resumed enrollment in Air Force higher education institutions. In order to popularize the aviation profession, we support the work of existing cadet corps, general education boarding schools with initial flight training, and we provide active patronage assistance in attracting young people to Air Force universities.

At present, on behalf of the Minister of Defense, proposals are being prepared to the President on the establishment of the Moscow Presidential Cadet School on the funds of the military air training center of the Air Force “Military Air Academy named after Professor N. Ye. Zhukovsky and Yu. A. Gagarin” transferred to the city of Voronezh (urban settlement Monino, Moscow region).

I believe that the measures taken by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and the High Command of the Air Force will be removed in the near future.

"MIC": What are the results of the implementation of the flight training plan for formations and units of aviation branches of the Air Force? Has the flight over the past year increased by one pilot?

- Qualitative training of flight personnel for the performance of combat missions for their intended purpose contributes to the implementation of the flight training plan, which remains one of the main tasks in the Air Force aviation. Compared to last year, the raid in the Air Force has increased by 2360 hours and today is 99 percent of the annual plan.

One of the most important indicators of the level of flight training is the average raid on the crew commander of aviation associations, formations and units. Over the past year, the average flight time per pilot was over a hundred hours. Particular attention is paid to the preparation of young flight personnel - recent university graduates. The High Command of the Air Force is interested in the early commissioning of young pilots, which, in general, will increase the combat readiness of aviation units. Thus, the raid on a young pilot over the past year amounted to more than 111 hours.

MIC: In June 2013, for the first time, a competition was held for the best flight crew of Aviadarts. What positive moments and, on the contrary, failed to reveal the disadvantages during the competition?

- The competition was held in accordance with the decision of the Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu. It was held for the first time in the Air Force and showed a fairly high level of training and skill of the pilots. The crew of the flight personnel of the Air Force ground attack aircraft on the Su-32, Su-25SM and army aviation helicopters on the Ka-25, Mi-52 and Mi-28 helicopters were involved. Crews of attack aircraft and combat helicopters competed, demonstrating their knowledge, physical fitness, and skills in the air. According to the results of the competition, the crews of Major Mizharev and Captain Khizhnyakov took the first place among the assault aviation crews on the Su-24SM airplanes of the Budennovsk aviation base. Among the crews of army aviation are the crews of Captain Skidanchuk and Lieutenant Shehurdin on Mi-25 helicopters of the Korenovsk air base. They adequately passed all examinations and sniper hit the targets at the test site, showed a high level of tactical and flight training, readiness to perform combat missions, gained tremendous experience in decision making in difficult tactical conditions.

The experience gained in the organization of Aviadarts will allow holding similar competitions in 2014 at a higher level and will provide an opportunity to plan for the participation of crews of strike aircraft from other states.

"MIC": When in the Air Force will be a new aerobatic team on the Yak-130? Will it be created on the basis of one of the existing groups or formed from scratch?

- Currently, the Yak-130 is supplied to the Air Force and mastered in training aviation units. The creation of the aerobatic team based on the Yak-130 aircraft is provided for in the plans of the Air Force. It will include pilots of those aviation units that operate this aircraft.

"MIC": From the budget of the Russian Federation for the re-equipment of the Air Force will be sent five trillion rubles, as stated by Russian President Vladimir Putin at a meeting on the status and development prospects of military aviation. This is approximately 25 percent of the total financing of the state defense order. Are you able to complete the tasks on time? How many modern airplanes and helicopters within the framework of the state defense order have already entered service with the RF Armed Forces?

- It is planned to purchase two thousand airplanes and helicopters, and due to this, by the year 2020, to bring the share of modern aviation technology in the army to 70 percent. Currently, the Air Force has more than one hundred new aircraft and three hundred helicopters. In addition, the modernization of the MiG-31, Su-25, Tu-95MS, Tu-160 and Tu-22М3 aircraft continues.

"MIC": To achieve this goal, industry enterprises must go through a full technical re-equipment, strengthen their production and human resources. But to increase output and at the same time restructure production is not an easy task. In your opinion, are the country's aviation enterprises coping with it?

- As far as we know, at present the issue of training production personnel is under the strict control of the president and the government of the Russian Federation. For this task, the heads of industrial enterprises and holding companies report to the Military Industrial Commission under the Government of the Russian Federation. The state armament program until 2020 has been synchronized with the Federal Target Program for the Development of the Defense-Industrial Complex, of which the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia is the government customer. Within the framework of this Federal Program, enterprises retool production and prepare it for the release of new samples. This allows the aviation industry in some nomenclatures to fulfill the state order with an increase in the volume of supplies and repairs up to 200 percent per year.

"MIC": Which companies do you think are leaders, and which are outsiders in this regard? How much is the lag in some of them in modernization and how does this affect the fulfillment of the state defense order as a whole? What can affect the timing of the implementation of the state defense order in the field of military aviation and air defense?

- Traditionally, at a higher rate, they increase production and expand the range of products supplied by enterprises that worked after the collapse of the Soviet Union for export. These include those that supply products for operational-tactical and army aviation. At the same time, the measures taken by the leadership of the Russian Ministry of Defense over the past three years to prioritize the placement of a state defense order at enterprises with low production potential, but directly affecting the country's defense capability, ensured production stability and the ability to develop and manufacture new products.

"MIC": The most successful projects of the Russian aviation industry in the field of export are fighters of the Su-30 and Mig-29 families. Meanwhile, foreign-made avionics are increasingly being installed on them. Can this negatively affect the performance of a combat mission in a real battle?

- I can report that none of the devices of foreign production is installed on a combat aircraft without testing in specialized Russian laboratories. Installation of foreign devices is carried out by domestic design bureaus to meet the high requirements specified in tactical and technical tasks. Knowing the results of the checks being conducted, I can say that import avionics cannot be the cause of the disruption of combat missions. At least so far no such facts have been identified.

"MIC": If the re-equipment of the fleet of combat aircraft and helicopters is more or less clear, then the situation with the supply of military transport aircraft, alas, does not inspire optimism. Please tell us more about the delivery schedules of the An-140-100 transport aircraft from the Samara Aviakor plant, Il-76MD-90А, and An-124-100 Ruslan.

- An-140-100 is a civilian short-haul passenger aircraft, its purchase is necessary to replace obsolete An-26 aircraft that are still in service. An-140-100 purchased under a long-term contract, in 2014, the Air Force will already have 11 of such aircraft. At the same time, the Ministry of Defense of Russia, up to 2020, has planned all the necessary measures aimed at modernizing and building up the existing fleet of military transport aircraft of the types Il-76, An-124, and creating and purchasing light and medium military transport aircraft. At present, a long-term state contract has been concluded for the supply of more than 30 Il-76MD-90А planes, with the rate of two aircraft per year being upgraded to An-124 in the An-124-100 version.

"MIC": How would you assess the professional level of training of flight personnel to work on a new technology? How much has it decreased since the reduction of the Armed Forces in 2009 – 2012? What measures is the chief of the Air Force taking to improve the situation?

- The professional level of training of flight personnel of the Air Force is sufficient for the development of the incoming new aircraft. Organizing staffing in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation did not affect the quality of the training of flight personnel and the development of new aviation technology. The chief command of the Air Force continues the planned work on the development of the incoming new aircraft and certain tasks are carried out based on the tasks. In particular, curricula, teaching materials, qualification requirements for aviation specialists are adjusted, modern technical training tools are supplied (simulators, educational computer classes, interactive training systems for new types of airplanes and helicopters), and changes are made to the system of advanced training aviation personnel, course training.

"MIC": The combat potential of the Air Force is largely determined by the state of the network of aerodromes. Much of them were built in the middle of the last century and require repairs. What are the plans of the High Command of the Air Force to build new and reconstruct old airfields?

- In 2013, the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation approved the prospective composition of the airfield network of the Air Force. Taking into account the wear of the airfield pavements before 2020, measures have been planned for the repair and reconstruction of existing airfields. At the same time, work to bring them up to airworthiness standards has been actively carried out since 2010, both by forces of the specialized units of the Air Force and by outside organizations. Every year, work to restore GDP and coverage is carried out simultaneously at more than 15 airfields.

"MIC": And the last question. Which areas in the field of military aircraft are recognized as priorities, will they change before the 2020 year?

- The development of military aviation in general is a priority in the construction of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. At the same time, the State Armaments Program up to 2020 of the year provides for the nomenclature positions of aviation technology and aviation weapons of destruction, which directly affect the combat effectiveness of all aircraft branches. Their supplies are under the control of the country's president, the government and the Ministry of Defense.

      And who will RESPONSE for 7 air bases and the liquidation of regiments and divisions?


      The question is rhetorical. Under THIS power, at least one high-ranking official (close to the "body") at least for something and somehow answered? If you stole a mobile phone, you are in prison; if you stole a plant, you are in the Kremlin (or the State Duma, etc.). Is not it? Vivid examples are Serdyukov and Vasilyeva. And no one will answer for the collapse of military education.

      Organizational and staffing events in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation did not affect the quality of training of flight personnel and the development of new aviation equipment.

      And here the Commander-in-Chief deceived or said what it was NECESSARY to say. Ask any representative (personnel or former) of a military education, any aviation commander of a division level or higher about the quality of training and hear what they will not show on TV and will not write to the media. But the return to the divisional-regimental structure is absolutely correct!

      The return to the "common sense course" pleases!
      Only a big big question arises, and who will personally answer according to the law for the "course of unhealthy sense"?
      Who will be responsible for the destruction of dozens that have become unusable by airfields, air towns and housing stock in them?
      Who will be responsible for the masturbation of the reorganization of the "division-regiment" into an "air base-squadron" and again a "division-regiment"?
      Who will be responsible for the "mothballed" aircraft that have fallen into disrepair?
      Who will be responsible for 2-3 years of lack of admission to military aviation schools? Who will be responsible for the closed military aviation schools?
      Who will be responsible for the destroyed military aviation scientific and training school at the Aviation Academies of the Zhukovsky and Gagarin estates, transferred to Voronezh at the base of the military school of auxiliary specialists of the aerodrome service?
      Who will be responsible for the part of the state budget (taxes collected from all over the people) spent on the restoration of everything lost during the "course of unhealthy meaning"?
      Who will answer?
      As they said in the days of the truly people's leader of the USSR, Stalin I.V., every emergency, incident, "unhealthy sense" MUST HAVE a SURNAME, FIRST NAME, PATRONALY, in order to properly ask for indecent destructive actions.

        Russia has centuries of experience in rebirth from the ashes.
        The development of electronics and nanotechnology will allow Russia to build a new airborne component, drones. This will significantly reduce the cost of maintaining a complex and expensive infrastructure to support the actions of the Air Force, reduce the requirements for the personnel of aviation units ...

      Kolyma has many more places.

      There were practically no landing sites for many airdromes. We made bases, transferred planes to one from several airdromes, now again a division and regiments, but the airdrome was left alone. And now? We have transferred planes from 10 regiments to the strip in the 4th year, additions to our regiment. From those towns there were ruins, from the runway only memories.

    They only forgot about civil aviation and aircraft manufacturing, without which the development of military aviation is almost impossible.

    And what in this area?
    After the accident in Karelia, the Ministry of Transport banned the operation of types of aircraft that are not equipped with systems for preventing collisions in the air and preventing collisions with the ground. The ban immediately affected: Tu-134, An-24, Yak-40, An-2, Mi-8 and other machines.


    But this does not apply to imported cars. According to the disaster in Kazan, instead of the usual six-year-year for such cases, a preliminary diagnosis was given almost immediately: pilot error, poor pilot training, abrupt maneuver, dive failure, blah, blah, blah.

    There will be no ban on flights of the type of aircraft that crashed in Kazan - there is no reason for this yet, the head of the Ministry of Transport Maxim Sokolov told reporters on Monday.


    It is clear - to offend Western uncles by no means! So we will continue to pack up with broken cars in Uganda, train pilots in Europe, and even better - hire foreigners. And let them build planes. We will close our factories as unnecessary, there are training centers, spare parts, etc. But almost all civil aviation is dual-use, and pilot training is also there.

    Everyone will love the Commander's article. I liked it, there is a program, there are goals. All his life he created military equipment for the Air Force, many types of them are on all aircraft, they are fighting well now. Recently, under my leadership, a monograph "Training complexes for radar control of airspace" was published. I presented the monograph to the Commander; he said nothing about the development of simulators. NATO pilots fly more than 300 hours a year, ours 100. There are more than 120 in naval aviation. You can compensate for the deficit by training on simulators. In VO I recently published an article "The task is to increase the effectiveness of missile and bomb strikes", then in a journal with specialists from the Lipetsk Center presented proposals on improving the training system for combat control specialists. There are many proposals for the development of aerodrome radio engineering systems, especially for dual-use aerodromes. The Commander has many concerns. I remember with P.S. Kutakhov and his successors constantly visited enterprises that create radio-technical aviation systems. V.N. Bondarev, I think, will also urge scientists and specialists with his visit, authority and attention to new types of military equipment.

      Wait, they come back, and at the head-TE, who about the "brigade" shouted the loudest ...
      That is, spineless, but there will be no sense with such, and as a result, defense capability dies with each reorganization)))) even if it was Soviet-style (but traitors do it)))) AGAIN .......

      As for simulators-Fighters, they don’t see SPECIAL USE in simulators, they are certainly needed, but without fanaticism, like in the US Army))) a real raid cannot be replaced with simulators, although for practicing skills they are priceless and cheaper (than to hit cars)))) )

      Everything in the complex should be .....And the words of the commander, let them be embodied in CASES .....Although (to be honest, I DOUBT))))))))

        What do you say to this:

        “With the arrival of Sergei Shoigu in the Ministry of Defense, there is hope for common sense, and some of the destroyed universities are now being restored. But the same people are often engaged in this, who destroyed them yesterday. as the academies of Zhukovsky and Gagarin, the alma mater of Russian aviation, cannot be restored. The faculty of renowned universities disagree with this. And the teachers turned to MK to prove: the academies, without which the Air Force has no future, can and should be restored.
        Here is a quote from a letter from the teachers of the former Air Force Academy in Monin to the editor-in-chief of MK, Pavel Gusev:

        “... the forces that started the destruction of our academy, at this stage, do not allow us to come to S.K.Shoygu, in every way prevent us from bringing to him true information about the state of this problem, and in the confrontation they do not even disdain to provide false information for their part on the real situation associated with the academy. Unfortunately, these forces are represented by active people in high military posts: Deputy Minister of Defense Pankov, Air Force Commander-in-Chief Bondarev, former Air Force Commander, and currently military adviser Zelin, recently appointed head of the VVC VVA "VVA them. prof. N.E. Zhukovsky and Yu.A. Gagarin ”(Voronezh) Zibrov. Currently, at the facilities of the educational-material base of the Academy in g. Monino is undergoing major repairs, which is close to completion. The military units temporarily relocated to the academy left its facilities and the territory of the town. Monino. ... Scientific and pedagogical potential with minimal cost could get to work. "

        (site www.mk.ru, article "Who and why under Serdyukov smashed the Air Force academies" (headline in the newspaper "The Air Force is running out"), No. 26235 of 22.05.2013/XNUMX/XNUMX, by O. Bozhieva ")

      Mr. Bondarev is one of the main executors of the "reform" for the collapse of the Air Force.
      Indeed - "The Commander has many worries."

      "Will the distortions and excesses in their reforming, made by the previous leadership of the Ministry of Defense, be corrected?" asks the author of the article. And he had no idea that the obedient performer of these "distortions" and "excesses" in the Air Force was this very gentleman (of course, according to instructions from above), whom he interviews.

      And with monographs and simulators, respected "Kaplya", you cannot increase the real flying time of pilots and the number of new equipment too. And the training system at the VVUZ of the Air Force cannot be improved (since there is nothing special to improve).

      About "combat control specialists", as you put it - generally keep quiet. There was a specialized school in Yeisk, then the department of AMU in Krasnodar, now subordinate to Chelyabinsk - what does Lipetsk have to do with it? And how many OBUs come to the troops? Or do you not know? After all, this is also one of the results of the activities of the "having authority" general.

      In response to all questions from the Air Force Command, the same magic phrase is repeated like a mantra - "it is planned until 2015". Where was this general until now? What was he doing for 2 years?
      Was it not he who shouted with delight a year ago about the advantages of air bases and the disadvantages of the "division-regiment" system?

      Where are the results of his work? Or is the collapse of the Air Force the result?

      So your phrase "The Commander's article will please everyone." not obvious.
      I did not like her.

        Do not judge strictly the professor, he is a civilian. A specialized school, or rather a branch of the Higher Military School of Military Aviation, was located in Bagerovo under the name of OPOBUA (department for the training of officers for combat control of aviation), it has been functioning there since 1971 of the year. I graduated in the 1980 year, at the glorious time of the heyday of the Air Force and Naval Aviation ...

        And the activities of the Commander-in-Chief fit into the "system" of actions of the entire current government - or rather, a haphazard shuffling from side to side, conditioned by lack of principle, incompetence, lack of strategic thinking and irresponsibility.

          I have nothing to do with the army and the air force, but the conclusions from what is happening are exactly the same for me. Everything is visible with the naked eye, and your competent opinion only confirms what we think. These endless reforms in all sectors are bringing the country to an end. This clowning with the Serdyukovs, masked shows with explosions, delivered to Petrovka by helicopters all sorts of chocks! Zadolbali! People hold for suckers!

    They smashed regiments, created bases, now they again create regiments and divisions. It seems like our leadership is bored. Here it is "having fun". And nobody counts money ..

      Of course, not an equivalent replacement!
      At the time, General Bondarev was the ideological inspirer of this replacement.
