Military Review

The runways of the four Russian airfields will be repaired before the end of the year.

The runways of the four Russian airfields will be repaired before the end of the year.

New runways at four Russian military airfields will be put into operation this year, Colonel Igor Klimov, a spokesman for the press service and information department of the Defense Ministry for the Air Force, told Itar-Tass today.

“The creation of the runway and the entire infrastructure in Akhtubinsk (Astrakhan region), Engels (Saratov region), Krymsk (Krasnodar region) and Chkalovsky in the Moscow region, will be completed, he said. - In Akhtubinsk, the strip is already ready, preparations are under way for the delivery of the aerodrome lighting equipment. Reconstruction of all four airfields began in 2012. ”

“The construction of artificial runways in the Volga region (Astrakhan region) and Karinovsk (Krasnodar region) continues,” Klimov added.

In addition, in 2016, it is planned to complete the reconstruction of the Steppe airfields (Trans-Baikal Territory) and Voronezh currently underway.

Also this year, at 14 airfields, including Besovets, Pskov, Domn, they will replace the destroyed plates and will arrange additional parking places for aircraft.

Complex repair and modernization of the network of military airfields of Russia will allow to locate and operate the latest aircraft and helicopters at the proper level, Klimov emphasized. “Today, extremely stringent requirements are imposed on the quality of runway coverage at military aerodromes. Due to particles of soil or a small pebble falling into the air intake, the fighter’s engines may fail, ”said the Air Force spokesman. He recalled that tests of the fifth generation T-50 aircraft had already begun in Akhtubinsk, so the infrastructure of the airfield should be prepared for reception aviation technicians of this level.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Air Force, Lieutenant-General Viktor Bondarev, has repeatedly drawn attention to the fact that the quality of the runway and the airfield infrastructure directly affects the speed of take-off of fighters. “Airplanes must be ready for immediate take-off. So if you make a quality airfield for us, then we will take off not in seven minutes, but in two or three minutes, ”he said.

          Aha) Spetsstroy the same - the most mowed. They’re cutting it on conscience, of course - they constantly have scandals connected either with embezzlement or with the fact that workers are not paid salaries. Well, at least the prosecutor’s office is on the alert and cases are brought against violators.

    “The construction of artificial runways continues in the Volga (Astrakhan region) and Karinovsk (Krasnodar Territory),” Klimov added

      Artificial - and before that only natural ones were built? .

    Does anyone know how difficult it is to build a runway? Why so slow and long? With the current technology in a few weeks, you can rebuild anything from scratch .. Is it really so difficult to construct and hi-tech materials there during construction? What is the problem then?

      Count it up. The take-off weight of the Tu-160 is 270 tons. Distribute at three points of support and understand why takeoff is different from the autobahn wink

      Believe me, it’s much more complicated and more time consuming than you think.
      one remark: a road slab 2,5 * 2,5 and this mosaic should lie perfectly (soil sampling layer-by-layer laying ...), in general it’s difficult

        You have simplified everything too much. Laying slabs on the ground - fake, you upset me.
        Maybe out of place, but I SALUTE Special building - my cradle after the institute. There, I myself learned to love the Motherland and to do it unquestioningly. And he built so dofig that I’m stunned now. MailboxG - secret
