120

On board the heavy aircraft carrier cruiser (TAVKR) "Admiral Fleet Soviet Union Kuznetsov "held a ritual of intercession pilots ship aviation on combat duty. From this moment on the upper deck of the aircraft carrier, the Su-33 fighters with full armament will be in immediate readiness for departure.


Earlier, the Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Kuznetsov TAVKR at the anchorage point southeast of the island of Malta replenished stocks from support vessels and headed eastward to the areas where the Russian Navy's permanent connection of ships in the Mediterranean was located.

The long-distance march of the Northern Fleet’s aircraft carrier group began on December 17 of 2013. During this time, deck fighters flew 41, helicopters - 66 departures. The total presence of pilots in the air is already more than 70 hours.

In the near future, pilots of naval aviation plan to continue flights from the aircraft-carrying cruiser Admiral Kuznetsov in the central part of the Mediterranean Sea.

    In childhood, we all so dreamed of flying -

    But few were able to become a pilot in life.

    This profession is not for wimps,

    For those who are brave, for men.

    Day and night the command "Take off"

    And the anxiety doesn’t let the women fall asleep -

    Who knows the sky is cooking them

    Courageous men, forever native?

    Let the husband return home from flying

    Healthy, lucky, sweet hero.

    A wave under the wing and an eye radar -

    Let everything bring you luck!

      That's for sure, especially for submariners and decks.

          These are not rumors, they will indeed be replaced, as the Su-33 develops a resource.

            Considering that there are no more 8 units left in the flight condition, and further production of these machines in Komsomolsk is not expected, this replacement is not inevitable.

              If so, then the combat capabilities of the ship will change, and I'm afraid not for the better ... with all due respect to the MiGs, but this is the middle class of aircraft, the combat radius will change, everything will change!

                Su-33s fly far from full refueling. The current version of the deck-mounted MiG is a fairly advanced machine with a seriously updated avionics. The Indians bought them for a reason, and they are very picky in matters of military-technical cooperation. In addition, MiGs, unlike Su, are capable of carrying anti-ship missiles.

                Change, change, and only for the better:
                1. There are more aircraft.
                2. Arms more.
                3. There is an "air-to-ship" weapon.
                4. There is the possibility of refueling in the air.
                5. There is an electronic warfare system for group protection.
                6. Complex avionics and radar for a duel surpass su-33.

                Unfortunately, the Su-33 does not possess any of these qualities. not because the plane is "bad". but because it was not created for such a class of ship as Kuznetsov.

                The only significant drawback of the MiG-29K / KUB is the "landing maneuver". which is performed at higher speeds and with greater restrictions on the angle of attack and roll, but alas ... this is already an aerodynamic layout request

        It seems like there is already a ship modification of the MiGs specifically for replacing Su.

        Well, it's not all the same time for Poghosyan to crush the unfortunate RSK MiG. Let the Migovites also create a 5th generation carrier-based fighter. Moreover, they have a MiG-XX project, maybe it will fit for a deck ship

            It’s strange to me another. There is good news (see above), but why no one asks the question, why do we only have one aircraft carrier cruiser? Does he make the weather in general?
            And where did Admiral Gorshkov go? But where!
            "The cruiser was officially handed over to the Indian Navy on November 16, 2013. On November 26, the Vikramaditya aircraft carrier left the port of Severodvinsk and headed for the Indian base Karwar."

            But the hull of the ship was already built in the USSR! It remains only to finish. But it’s clear that the Olympics are more important angry
            But this is bad news, and there is only good news on this site!
            And try to compare: "A new aircraft carrier, Admiral Gorshkov, has been commissioned, is on combat duty to protect the borders of our homeland!" ...

              But it was not in 2013 that an agreement was concluded on the transfer of "Gorshkov" to the Indians. It started back in the 90s, in 2013 it was finally commissioned after modernization. And what could have been done with Gorshkov in the 90s? He was not needed by anyone and would most likely be written off ...

                Yeah? Of course, in order to do this (and at the same time refuse to destroy "Satan"), we must recognize our government as criminal under Gorbachev and the EBN, and we cannot go to the ethno!

He cannot be held criminally or administratively liable for acts committed by him during the exercise of the powers of the President of the Russian Federation, as well as detained, arrested, subjected to search, interrogation or personal search if these actions are carried out in the course of proceedings related to execution him the powers of the President of the Russian Federation.

          I believe that the group has a slightly different task. Remember that there was a lot of information that the United States did not finally refuse to resolve the Syrian issue by force. A number of analysts and publicists expressed the view that a forceful option is possible just at the time of the Olympics, when Russia will actually have its hands tied for active political action, not to mention the military.
          It is in this situation that the ship grouping in the eastern Mediterranean is very necessary for a very pragmatic purpose (in addition to demonstrating the flag and moral support), namely:
          - intelligence and information exchange with the Syrian side;
          - airspace control;
          - blocking possible missile attacks from the sea and southern Europe (by placing ships along the coast, by combining the security zones of each ship, a virtually "no-fly zone" is created, within which any missile flying towards the ship is considered a threat and can be destroyed. Hardly anyone will go to Russia now ...).

        - I think it's not in NATo to scare the matter. Why is Kuznetsov hanging out in the Mediterranean? In a couple of days, the Winter Olympics in Sochi will begin and end (hopefully, without incident). Isn't it time after that to create a demand from those who arranged a bloody bacchanalia in Stalingrad? Somewhere out there in the Mediterranean Sea, the one who perpetrated this orgy - Prince Bandar bin Sultan - lives. With the help of whom to do this, if not with the help of "Kuzi"? And yet - despite the most advanced versions of the F-15, which are in service with Saudi Arabia, there is nothing to be afraid of a response from its air force - they are no pilots, and iron, even the most advanced, does not fight itself. Well, this is my version, it is probably wrong. But I really want to hope that those who organized those terrorist acts will not go unpunished.

        There is no need to be a shpien. Typically, the air group includes 10 Su-33s, plus helicopters. In November 2013, 2 MiG-29K and 2 MiG-29KUB were handed over.

          There is really nothing funny here. Another question is whether it is worth overloading an aircraft carrier, of which it is certainly an anti-ship missile and SSBN. For this weapon escort ships are needed. The Hindus from Gorshkov, in order to free up space and facilitate the ship, dismantled everything.

          Not funny, Granites were unloaded for a long time, half of the Daggers do not work. This is not the main thing, the main thing is that the Kuznetsov State University is breathing its last. With a passport range of 8000 miles, he was already taking fuel from a tanker off the coast of Scotland, and that would not be three thousand miles ....

            So where are you from such a specialist? And in airplanes, and in ships, and in satellites, and in McCain. Everything, about everything you know. I will say according to Kuznetsov, my wife’s grandmother was one of the leaders of the SRZ-35 (Her Kingdom of Heaven). In growth (the Murmansk region) he was called, and even now sometimes called - the wine-maker Kuznetsov. Because, half of the district had alcohol from it. Well, this is so, in principle, to nothing. Now he is in good condition, no matter what. The factory team is always on the campaign, this time they didn’t even take a friend from me on a campaign, due to health reasons. Kuznetsov, 20 with more than years without EXACTLY CAPITAL repair. How they manage to keep him in such good condition, one can only be surprised. Although according to conversations, he will not last more than 5 years, capital is needed. In the meantime, many thanks to my friends and all SRZ-35 employees. The ship at the moment I repeat, in fairly good condition.

How can you know the state of affairs at Kuznetsovo better than the workers of SRZ-35? In general, it is clear that you are a reaper, a Swiss, and a gamer on the pipe. And probably "all according to secret documents." Pilot, sailor, astronaut, tankman, designer. I admire, you are just a Genius.

                  By external signs. You do not need to be an authoritative specialist here, you need to know elementary mathematics. Kuznetsov went camping on December 17, 2013, this is known from open sources, and on December 29 he took fuel in the Mori Firth Gulf. Those. he traveled 1300 (approximately) miles in 12 days. I hope you will not deny it? Now, discarding emotions, calculate the average transition speed. Distance 1300 miles, time 288 hours, divide and get a speed of 4,41 knots. And now we open ANY reference book and we find:
                  Range at full speed - 4000 miles.
                  Range with economical travel - 8500 miles.
                  Economic speed - 18 knots.
                  Can you leave the emotions and ask a simple question, WHY DOES THE SHIP ACHIEVE ITS PASSPORT CHARACTERISTICS? You can ask this question to SRZ-35 employees.
                  If your car, instead of the maximum 150 km / h, develops only 30 km / h while consuming 50 liters. gasoline per 100 km., then perhaps you should think about its condition? And if in a car service they tell you that the car is "in a fairly good condition.", Then perhaps it is worth changing the car service?
                  PS: so that you do not accuse me of excessive love for the Americans I will give an example on a domestic ship.
                  October 22, 2013 The heavy nuclear-powered missile cruiser Peter the Great left the same base in Severomorsk in the same direction. November 2, he had already passed Gibraltar, passing according to the data of MO 3200 miles. The transition was 10 days, but it should be borne in mind that he had to wait for the storm off the coast of Scotland, how many days he lost on this is not known, maybe a couple of days.
                  Kuznetsov passed the same distance in 29 days! We take the distance, time and opa, the same 4,5 knots. If such calculations are not available for you and for the SRZ-35 workers, I’m ready to admit that

    I understand the admiration of readers, pilots fly, try new cars ... But let's take a serious look at the medium itself. TAKR “Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Kuznetsov” does not currently represent a combat unit. Even if he was fully equipped with the MiG-29K, he would not pose any danger because he still had to get to the enemy, which Kuzya simply could not do. Kuzi’s journey to the Mediterranean Sea is similar to the participation of a pensioner asthmatic in a hundred-meter race. Five meters shuffling, stopped, took out an inhaler, breathed in, another five difficult steps, another inhaler ...
    To assume that someone was frightened of him and ruined his pants is rather naive.
    In order to cool the boiling mind of the indignant, I bring the arguments:
    Off the coast of Scotland (Mori Firth Bay) Kuzya received fuel from a tanker, for which there is a photo on the network. Considering that in an economical move, he must pass 8000 miles on his fuel oil reserves on his passport, he has already refueled about 1400 miles from Severomorsk. Moreover, this transition lasted 12 days! This is an average speed of about 5 knots. He got to Gibraltar only on January 15, having passed since December 17 of last year according to the data of the Defense Ministry 3700 miles. Those. the average speed of 5 knots was preserved.
    Gentlemen, comrades, 5 knots is a turtle speed, as I have already given an example, the Nebogatov detachment consisting of squadron battleships in 1904. covered the distance from Libava (Baltic Sea) to Marbut (Arabian Peninsula) with an average speed of 8,7 nodes, despite the fact that coal was recharged from the accompanying transport on the way ...
    If a warship cannot develop a course of more than five knots, then it cannot represent any danger, this is the laughing stock and shame of the nation ...

    The pilots of the naval aviation aircraft carrier "Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Kuznetsov" took to combat duty in the Mediterranean Sea

    The Northern Fleet began on December 17 2013 of the year. During this time, carrier-based fighters made 41 sorties, helicopters made 66 sorties. The total presence of pilots in the air is already more than 70 hours.

    Even if the number 70 hours applies only to jet aircraft - 70 / 41 = less than 1,5 hours !!! Just take off, make a circle and land. If 70 hours, including helicopters, 70 / (41 + 66), then even funnier ~ half an hour in the air.

    "Alert duty" laughing
    It disgracerather than combat duty

    By the way, why is it not indicated anywhere how many on board Kuznetsov broken junk Su-Xnumx fighters?
    Last time, in 2012 there were 8 of them ... this is not a typo! EIGHT fighters - laughing chickens. Carrying such an "aircraft carrier" across the Mediterranean is just a disgrace to the whole world

    In the 2014 year, the Su-33, probably, became even less - because the accident rate there is just fierce. One crashed plane for every few hundred departures

        On Kuznetsovo less than 8 cars fly every couple of days, without PTB and ammunition

        In summary:
        18 October 2004 year, the accident occurred Su-25UTG. The plane made a hard landing, as a result of which his right landing gear broke. Great damage to the cruiser was avoided due to the fact that the Su-25UTG caught a landing hook on the cable of the aerofinisher. Among the alleged causes of the accident are crew error and metal fatigue stress [30].

        On 5 of September 2005 of the year in the North Atlantic, on an aircraft-carrying cruiser, two emergency landings of Su-33 fighters took place. One of the fighters fell into the ocean and sank at a depth of 1100 meters (Lieutenant Colonel Yuri Korneev, who was flying the plane, ejected), the second stayed on deck. The cause of both accidents was the breakage of the aerofinisher cable [31]. It was planned to destroy the sunken plane with depth bombs due to the presence of secret equipment (for example, a friend or foe identification system) [32], but it turned out that this was impossible [33]. The command of the Navy expressed the hope that the aircraft itself will collapse [34].

          That's it, because of the cable break, the cars themselves have nothing to do with it. Now the jambs with the brake machines are eliminated. And, by the way, Yuri Anatolyevich Korneev (now Colonel), feels great and still flies up at the first opportunity (when they let him go from St. Petersburg). And what does the UTG have to do with it? Speech, like, about the Su-33 was.

      Do you have any other options? You don’t understand what danger it is to drive a ship with a half-dead power plant into the sea? God forbid, of course, but it may happen that the last boilers in Medizemka fail and the ship is left without a turn. The chiker will take it in tow, but the sea is not a joke, it will cover the ends with a small storm and Kuzya will still have 60 thousand tons of displacement with high windage. Throw the last domestic aircraft carrier on the stones and that’s all, mascara light, drain the oil ...

        Yes, in the next five years, Kuznetsov will undergo a major overhaul and deep modernization at the Sevmash shipyard. In the meantime, let it work

    This is not a laughing stock and shame, this is what Russia inherited from the USSR, everything else fell into the hands of the oligarchs, and then in difficult times the Strategic Missile Forces will always help him. They don’t laugh at what you yourself can’t do better. Africa will just put it on your pants, and the USA can only be scared by KUBA, only from its shores the USSR made them run in gas masks.

      You probably are not familiar with the story of Kuznetsov. He got to Russia in good condition, only from the factory. Just instead of buying one Mistral, it would be better to invest in the repair of Kuzi.

    It’s strange to me another. There is good news (see above), but why no one asks the question, why do we only have one aircraft carrier cruiser? Does he make the weather in general?
    And where did Admiral Gorshkov go? But where!
    "The cruiser was officially handed over to the Indian Navy on November 16, 2013. On November 26, the Vikramaditya aircraft carrier left the port of Severodvinsk and headed for the Indian base Karwar."

    But the hull of the ship was already built in the USSR! It remains only to finish. But it’s clear that the Olympics are more important angry
    But this is bad news, and there is only good news on this site!
    And try to compare: "A new aircraft carrier, Admiral Gorshkov, has been commissioned, is on combat duty to protect the borders of our homeland!" ...
    Here is the good news ----- The heavy nuclear-powered missile cruiser Admiral Nakhimov, the “classmate” of the flagship of the Russian Navy Peter the Great, will receive new strike weapons, new air defense systems and new electronics. Work on the modernization of the ship has already begun.

    You probably know that for example AV Nimitz hangs a little over half of the assigned air group. Storage on deck is a normal practice when placing a large number of aircraft.

    Naval aircraft are designed for an aggressive environment, they are even washed more often (at least wherever flying from the deck is a familiar naval craft).
