Su-34 front-line bombers will receive the functions of an electronic warfare aircraft

Vladimir Mikheev, Advisor to the First Deputy General Director of KRET, said that in 2015, the Radioelectronic Technologies concern (KRET, a member of Rostec) this year will transfer to the Russian Armed Forces the first batch of special containers, which make it possible for the Su-34 front-bomber to function as an electronic aircraft fight (EW).

Currently, Su-34 airplanes are used to attack the positions of militants of the Islamic State terrorist group (IS) banned in the Russian Federation in Syria.

“At the wing tips of all Su-34, multifunctional E-B systems Khibiny-10В are installed. This year, the Defense Ministry will receive the first batch of so-called stackable stackers installed under the fuselage, which will make it possible to turn a standard Su-34 into a specialized electronic warfare aircraft that can protect not only itself, but also ensure effective radio-electronic suppression of radar systems and anti-aircraft missile systems, aircraft radar patrol and so on - that is, protection and other aircraft of the group ", - quotes Mikheev RIA"News».

Mikheev stressed that in this way the Su-34 can be used not only as a combat aircraft, but also be able to conduct electronic warfare.

"At the same time, the Su-34, used to conduct EW, will still be able to perform the function of a bomber," the agency source said.

The main purpose of the Khibiny multifunctional anti-missile system developed by KRET provides individual protection of aircraft against missile attacks by enemy fighters and ground-based air defense systems.

    Well, in general, the heat. From them, and so vilified all "partners". Now I don't even know how, whether they will survive. laughing

    That is, when the SU-34 is accompanied by a group of 24 or 25 EWs, everything is crushing? Did I understand correctly?

      This will increase the rotation of the crews of the American Navy))))

          Correct solution! The duckling will be very useful for the presence of powerful electronic warfare stations. It would be nice to make even some specialized modification for these purposes, for example, the Su-34R. One can see some analogy with the American F-111 fighter-bomber, which also had a lateral arrangement of pilots in the cockpit, specialization in work on ground and surface targets, and even a separate modification of the E / F-111 for electronic warfare. If you look at the 34th and 111th, then even outwardly their cabs are very similar. I’m not to the fact that we licked it, but to the fact that, according to the positive experience of the Americans, we are doing everything right with Sushka.

      That's right .. just not all, but attacking anti-aircraft missiles .. but not all, but with the radar homing system and not around, but in the sector of 45 degrees forward / backward. about the range of action to mention or not to upset?
      Tell me, is it true that Abramovich won a million in the lottery? True, not only Abramovich, but Rabinovich, not into the lottery, but into cards, not a million, but a hundred rubles, and did not win, but lost

        Well, why offend the equipment of the escalating composition?) Its tasks are to provide group protection, which means that the + -60 sector provides (AFAR, after all!) And the potential is such that not only RLGSN will burn out from the inside, but AWACS with IJIS will be nervous will smoke on the sidelines. Only 2 sides for the whole of Syria are too small. We need two squadrons, like those of the p.i.n.dos with their White Tenders, equipped with the F-18 "Growler". But here, IMHO, "Lever" with "Krasukha" will help us.))

    I work in Novosib near the airfield, yesterday I heard Sushka take off, a terrible roar, however. Now we’ll run everything on NATE’s drones as well)) And I think it’s for 30 seconds that I flew into Turechina. A week of happiness, and then the Ukrainian topic is generally sick of it !!!

    This is something fresh: - EW - this is peaceful action recourse

    The most important thing is that he can be both a "bomber" and a "rebel" at the same time. Previously, separate aircraft were used for jamming, purely with equipment.

    The Su-34 worked with the Khibina on 08.08.08, when the characteristics of the rodent radar were monitored to suppress (destroy) them.

    So this, in fact, has always been done this way. EW containers clung to serial machines and forth. Always when completing tasks, part of the machines stood out to suppress enemy stations, otherwise you will break through the fin. As a former startup of the EW IWB group I say

    Somehow it is not clear in the article it is written ...
    I understand the complex in the form of endings as in the photo given by the thinker, is somewhat different from the pendant.
    the outboard is more powerful, designed for the SU-34, but there is (or is still being developed) a variant on the SU-24, but it takes up space on which you can hang an additional bomb / missile (and if it is a "very large" bomb, then it is in the center of the fuselage and cannot be hung), this option provides cover for the group. (name (I may be wrong) of the Khibiny-M type.)

    "wing" version, weaker, for, so to speak, individual protection (name of Khibiny-10V)
