Vladimir Putin discussed the development prospects of the Russian Air Force

28 November The 2013 of the year in Sochi, the next meeting, which was devoted to the development of the Russian Air Force, was held by Vladimir Putin personally. Recently, the Russian president held a series of similar meetings. November 27 held a meeting on the Strategic Missile Forces and on the development of the Navy. November 28 also hosted a meeting that was devoted to the development of air defense and air defense. On November 29, the president discussed the prospects for creating high-precision weapons, the development of the orbital grouping, and also held a meeting with the leadership of the Russian Defense Ministry and representatives of defense companies. Experts have already noted that the president has turned on the “manual mode” of managing the Russian defense industry.


It seems that Vladimir Putin is extremely concerned about the inefficient spending of budget funds spent on ensuring the security of the state. In another way, it is difficult to explain the transition to the manual model of managing the modernization process of the Russian army. The President of Russia voiced his position during a meeting with the leaders of defense companies and the generals several times. Approximately it can be represented in the following way.

Currently, a very large volume and timely funding of defense programs is carried out, however, at various stages of their implementation, “failures and failures” happen every now and then, and “a number of key projects today float by deadlines”. In this regard, Vladimir Putin decided to take the process under his personal control. It is hard to say how effective this will be from the point of view of management science. At the same time, an analysis of the open part of the meetings held in Sochi suggests that Putin is concerned about national defense issues and in the future, it may be worth waiting for events that will threaten Russia's security.

Vladimir Putin discussed the development prospects of the Russian Air Force

Opening the meeting on November 28, the president recalled that experts are well aware that the role aviation on the battlefield has been growing steadily since the First World War. At present, in the current conditions of the development of technology, aviation is solving a huge range of tasks - strike functions, reconnaissance, transport. That is why Russia is currently implementing a large-scale program for the development and updating of the country's air force.

In 2013, the Russian Air Force received 86 new aircraft, as well as more 100 new helicopters. In the 2014, the military will get about 90 helicopters and about 120 airplanes, while the Russian air force should receive around 2020 units of the most modern aviation technology (the more accurate figure, 1600), was received by 1591. Due to this, the share of the latest technology in the country's Air Force will be able to reach 70% of the entire fleet.

During the meeting, the president stressed that today all the plans for the development of the Air Force are painted, the funds have been allocated, you just need to work, follow the schedules of production, testing, acceptance and control the quality of the products. The main manufacturer of aviation technology in our country is UAC - United Aircraft Corporation. With the president of the corporation, Mikhail Poghosyan, Putin discussed the rhythm of funding and the work of industrial enterprises.


The President also highlighted three things that he would like to draw attention to. First, the issue of strengthening the air-based strategic nuclear forces of Russia. According to the president, it is necessary to step up work on the creation of a promising long-range aviation complex PAK DA. Currently, work is underway in Russia on the creation of the PAK FA (a promising aviation complex of front-line aviation). Several aircraft are already regularly flying, tests are carried out, refinement and refinement of the complex, work is underway to create a new generation propulsion system. Of course, the implementation of this program has questions that need to be addressed, but there are practically no doubts that the plans will be able to be fully implemented. At the same time, the president noted that work on the creation of the PAK DA should be started already, and it should be started actively. Vladimir Putin also stressed the importance and the need to further modernize long-range Tu-95MS and Tu-160 long-range aircraft. According to him, the capabilities of these aviation complexes are still far from being exhausted. If we talk about our long-range aviation, there is still a lot to be done, upgrading to bring these machines to a new, higher level.

Secondly, it is necessary to increase the supply of new combat vehicles to the troops, which belong to the tactical link, we are talking about the Su-25M attack aircraft and the Su-34 front bomber, as well as the 5 generation fighter already mentioned above.

Thirdly, it is necessary to continue work on the creation and deployment of mass production of promising UAVs. Nowadays, unmanned aerial vehicles around the world are being used more and more. At the same time, Putin noted that Russia will not use drones as some states do today. Russia has its own way in this matter. Today it is absolutely clear that this is not a game, not computer games, modern UAVs are serious combat complexes that can solve both reconnaissance and combat missions. Obviously, such devices have an excellent perspective. Therefore, it is necessary not only to make plans for their application, but also to work to put them into practice.


At the end of the meeting, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Air Force Viktor Bondarev noted that in the 2011-2012 years, the Russian Air Force replenished 263 with new aircraft, another 200 aircraft will arrive before the end of this year. He also noted the increased time of the average flight of Russian military pilots. In 2013, the pilots spent an average of 112 hours in the sky.

At the same time, Viktor Bondarev touched upon not only the problem of armaments, but also the prospects for the development of defense infrastructure, which is of great geopolitical importance for our country. For example, he told Vladimir Putin about the prospects of the Russian aerodrome network in the Arctic. This network needs to be improved. The main locations of the Russian Air Force in this area will be Rogachevo, the Temp airfield on the Novosibirsk islands, the airfields at Cape Schmidt and the Nagurskoye airfield on Franz Josef Land. In addition, the airfields located in the Russian subarctic zone - Alykel, Vorkuta, Naryan-Mar, Tiksi will not remain without attention. According to the commander-in-chief of the country's air force, the state of these airfields will be brought up to the standards of readiness for their subsequent use by Russian long-range aviation. According to the information of the former head of the Russian General Staff, Nikolai Makarov, the cost of upgrading a military airfield is about 5-10 billion rubles. Thus, only to upgrade the airfield network in the Russian North may need up to 100 billion rubles.

    GDP has signed a decree establishing a new anti-corruption structure. And as they said without bloating the states and, accordingly, without raising the salary. Apparently from internal reserves.

    It is good that there is concern for the first person in the state.
    The bad thing is that the manual mode is entered. This indicates that subordinate links in the management chain are either inoperative, corrupt, or do not fit into normal functioning algorithms (which is sabotage). It would be nice to provide for companies - enterprises of the military-industrial complex of the country, as well as for all structural parts of the defense complex, legal norms of responsibility that are somewhat different from the rest.

    It is difficult to explain the transition to a manual model of managing the process of modernization of the Russian army in a different way.

    And we have "manual" control everywhere, not only in the Army. I think the reason is that the system does not work. Our VVP could not debug it with my team. Personal intervention is still required, and this is not correct. This means the legal framework is not effective, many regulations are "stillborn". As a result, local officials saw everything and everyone in one place, and are removed from office when the case gets widespread publicity (and even then not always). As VVP said in one of his speeches: “I don’t abandon my own people”. He is certainly right in some ways, but then why be surprised at the next point transition to "manual" control?

    <<< Experts have already noted that the president has turned on the "manual mode" of managing the Russian defense industry. It seems that Vladimir Putin is extremely concerned about the ineffective spending of budget funds that are spent on ensuring the security of the state. >>>
    For how long the proceedings have been dragging on with gigantic amounts of money that have flown away into the "unearmarked expenses" of the Ministry of Defense, and there is no result, which may indicate that in this sector of the Ministry of Defense, the defense industry complex, such mafia Serdyukovism has been entrenched in mutual responsibility, which does not surrender its own people and, of course, continues to steer without fear of anyone! Neither Rogozin nor anyone else has enough authority or authority to ensure the timely and high-quality implementation of plans for equipping with new equipment and reforming the Armed Forces, for which huge funds have been allocated. And so that history does not repeat itself, the President decided to take all this into his own hands, especially since the implementation of the outlined plans is extremely important in the modern situation! It is a pity, but it is obvious that the president, as they say in hockey, has too "a short bench" and there is not a sufficient number of responsible people-state officials, on whom one could rely on the result without fear in resolving this issue!

      If in the store I ask for simple bread at the price of 5-10 money, then they will not understand me. The Makarovs, therefore, do not eat plain bread, i.e. not Suvorov.
      Maths are also not trained. I hope the geography further MKAD mastered km. so on the hundredth?
      What motive did the GDP knock out with its nails on the polished table attentively listening to such distinguished persons?

    Well, explain to me why the hell is sitting in Sochi to invite ministers and other responsible comrades to meetings almost every day. And as you know, everyone flies on their own plane, and then goes to Bocharov Ruchei in their own (or dedicated) car, but always with a flashing light. I just want to say: "Vladimir Vladimirovich is having a rest, so rest and do not endure the brains of others. When you come to the capital, then put everyone in the pose of a starting Egyptian. After all, the economy and efficiency are greater." And on the development of the Air Force. There is a budget, money is allocated and all the merits and shortcomings are 1 sheet of printed text, if without water. And for this it is necessary to hold a meeting in Sochi? As it was said in the film "Prisoner of the Caucasus" - Prepare in writing and in triplicate !!!

      And I like where the president is, there is the capital, to transfer it from Moscow in general. just Sochi, it’s possible for a month (not better for a week, because traffic jams due to VIPs will get local residents) in each of the 89 regions of Russia, which at least looked beyond the MKAD

    Manual control, usually disabled people are engaged. If you are unwell and you can’t organize the assigned work, admit it and offer a replacement, not a striptease to the pension that you already have.
