MiG-25 - the most secret aircraft of the Syrian Air Force

"Messenger of Mordovia" published an article about the most "secret" aircraft, which is still in service with the Syrian Air Force, the use of which is "the most closed topic."


MiG-25 - the most secret aircraft of the Syrian Air Force


“This is a Soviet MiG-25 aircraft. Developed in 60-ies, he received a baptism of fire in the skies of the Middle East. Then he fought in Iraq and Syria, ”the article says.

It is not known exactly how many such aircraft remain in the Syrian Air Force, according to some, there are only 11, according to others, at least 6 MiG-25RB, 30 MiG-25PD and 2 two-seat combat training vehicles. Earlier, a well-known Syrian expert, Yuri Lyamin, estimated the Syrian MiG-25 fleet at almost four dozen aircraft, which were based on aviation Tiyas base between Homs and Palmyra.

"MiG-25 was used to reconstruct the positions of militants in the northern and eastern regions of Syria or to patrol the Turkish border," the article notes.

In November last year, a video filmed at Syria’s Tiyas Air Force Base (T4) was made public, “it was mostly Su-22 that could be seen, but in addition to the squadron of these fighter-bombers, all T-4 were also based 24MK and MiG-25 ". "A couple of the latter also hit the lens of a video camera," the newspaper notes.

It is possible that even now a certain number of Syrian MiG-25s can be used in combat, the publication concludes.

      After hijacking to Japan, almost nothing. Maybe a new avionics.

      The secret, probably, is that some of them can take off and land ... laughing

      But to be serious, it doesn’t give a damn what weapons the IS terrorists will destroy, even with arrows - the main thing is that everything is in the treasury of a positive result!

          вроде бы МиГ-25 РБ помимо разведоборудования могут нести и вооружение "воздух-поверхность". в том числе ракеты Х-58 и фугасные бомбы (в 1976 году ГНПП «Базальт» сдал на вооружение образец фугасной термостойкой авиабомбы к «МиГ-25РБ»). так что "старичок" еще может показать зубки smile

            it seems that the MiG-25 RB, in addition to reconnaissance equipment, can also carry air-to-surface weapons. including X-58 missiles and high-explosive bombs

            ------------------
            Nobody knows for sure what they have out of arms there and to what state the aircraft is brought to ...

            From 20 km high, a high-explosive free-falling bomb, and a jeep with a machine gun! Tremble "bearded" .. am
            And the flight hour is like the cost of a couple of jeeps ..
            "Old man" is not needed yet .. Now, if Qatar climbs to butt, then it will be necessary and then, it will be hard for him to "butt" with F-15 and Typhoons ..
            It’s difficult now to come up with a task for him, that's why they don’t fly.

      It talks about the number of aircraft, and not that it is classified because of its technical data.

        Nice plane. It was.
        However, there is no reliable data on its modernization. The MiG-29 fleet has been modernized, many MiG-23s are younger, and the MiG-23BM drums.
        And on the land of the MiG-25, KMK will still not be able to work. It is possible to upgrade its avionics from the MiG-31B, with the same RVV, PRR and RCC, but the planes are too old - is it worth it. Even metal is "tired" and reborn. But these are only interceptors. Allahakbarovites can only blow away superzound with a low-altitude transition nga, although it will not seem enough.

    Well, why not use it? The machine has been tested by time and will also give odds to many modern "ill-wishers" vehicles, it seems that the Syrians, with our help, have a little "refitted" this "winged miracle" and this is not a bad cover for the crushing militants of our VKS forces (from surprises from the pro-American "coalition" )!

        And 250 liters of “massandra” and 50 liters of pure alcohol are poured into it. Very appreciated aircraft in the Air Force smile By the way, do you remember how "massandra" stands for? Mikoyan Provided Aviation Alcohol to the Army People Satisfied with the Work of an Aircraft Designer.

      Well, well ... Even in the Russian Air Force, the MiG-25 flew until about 2012, and the number of flying was about a dozen. If I am not mistaken, the last ones flying should have stayed in Monchegorsk. In Voronezh, the 25 in recent years have experienced problems with engines and rarely went to supersonic, not to mention the 3. Then they were sent to targets for an aircraft carrier. If Russia has not found the strength for itself to modernize, or at least to maintain a flight condition, then what about Syria ???

    A fighter in the air defense system ... Well, a scout ... In this war, he is of little use to him. I assume that the machines are running out of service life and require resource recovery. Weapons for them are already precisely beyond the expiration date. Nothing to remember about them, IMHO. They will be killed even on them ... let them stand on. Until the most global third world ...

    For us, for Japan and the USA, these aircraft are certainly not secret, but in Syria they are still secret. So what? The car is good, there is a weapon in Syria for this aircraft, if used for its intended purpose, then the flag is in their hands.

    MiG-25 once, in the 70s-80s was a threat to
    our air force because of its speed but
    for 20 years they have not been flying in Syria.

    Фуфло автор гонит! Были бы секретными - стояли бы спрятанными в капонирах, а не на открытом воздухе. Как и фото в статье - архивное, с бывшей базы хранения в Нижнем Тагиле (бортовые номера в Сирии не пишут 88 - там цифры выглядят иначе). Только вот 25-х уже лет 15 как там порезали - титан , понимаеш-шь дорогая штука, чтобы "бесплатно" стоять в резерве.
    And the "secret" is like in a joke about the "elusive John" - now he's there "on "bitter" никому не нужен" : перехватчик - перехватывать некого, бомбардировщик - так бомбометание у него навигационное - не по прицелу, а по координатам: актуально по джипам работать, разведка? - "дроны" пооперативнее будут...

      80% of the glider is made of nickel steel of the VNS-2, VNS-4 and VNS-5 grades, 8% are titanium structures and 11% are parts from a special heat-resistant aluminum alloy D19


      Agree 8% of 20 600 kg - good weight at a price (1998-2000) 10 "green" per kg
