Russian military facilities on fresh Google Earth images

56


Google Earth with a frequency of several times a year updates satellite images of a significant part of the territory of Russia. In recent years, the country's leadership has been paying serious attention to improving the defense capability of the Russian armed forces, many positive changes in this area can be seen in the Google Earth images.

The guarantor of the independence and territorial integrity of the Russian Federation is the strategic nuclear deterrent force (SNF).

In the Russian armed forces there is a classic version of the “nuclear triad” - the ground (RVSN), sea (SSBN) and air (YES) components.

As of the beginning of 2015, the Russian strategic nuclear forces had about 500 strategic carriers, which deployed about 1900 nuclear warheads.

The largest number of nuclear charges in Russia is deployed on intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) of the Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN). Approximately 300 missile systems, which are armed with the Strategic Missile Forces, can carry about 1100 nuclear warheads. Armed with the Strategic Missile Forces are ICBM mobile and silo-based.

Mine-based ICBMs - Р-36М / Р-36М2, УР-100Н УТТХ, РТ-2ПМ2 "Topol-M" are in combat duty in protected mine launchers (SPU).

Currently, some rocket divisions of the Strategic Missile Forces, which were armed with mobile ground systems in the past, are moving to a new mobile missile system, the PC-24 Yars, which, unlike the monoblock Topol, carries three head units of individual 150 targeting -300 kt in TNT equivalent.

In addition to the warheads themselves, on the PC-24 "Yars" are installed countermeasures that guarantee the overcoming of any existing missile defense system at the moment.

In a permanent location, the launchers are located in “Krona” type shelters, which are equipped with a retractable roof and allow you to launch rockets at any time.

The Russian Navy has 8 strategic strategic missile submarines (SSBN) with ballistic missiles on board.

Ballistic missiles that are in service with Russian submarine missile-carriers are capable of carrying about 500 nuclear warheads.

SSBN compounds are available in the North (SF) and Pacific (Pacific Fleet) navy.

The Northern Fleet includes 5 SSBN Ave 667BDRM, each of which carries X-NUMX P-16PM and 29 missile-carrier Ave 1 with X-NUMX P-955 "Bulava-16" missiles.

On the Pacific Fleet in the Krasheninnikov Bay, 2 X-RDCS Ave. 667BDR with X-NUMX P-16P missiles are on board.

It is planned that 2 submarine missile ave Ave 955 will be part of the Pacific Fleet until the end of 2015 year.

Aviation The component of the Russian strategic nuclear forces includes 11 Tu-160 bombers and 55 Tu-95MS bombers, which are deployed at two air bases in the European part and in the east of the country.

In addition to the Tu-95 and Tu-160, the long-range aviation has 40 bombers Tu-22М3.


Satellite image Google Earth: Tu-22М3 at the airfield "Shaykovka" in the Kaluga region


Several years ago, the Tu-22М3 missile carriers, which were in service with naval aviation, were transferred to long-range aviation. All airplanes of this type, capable of rising into the air, were distilled from Far Eastern airfields to the European part of the country.


Satellite image of Google Earth: Tu-22М3, which are “in storage” at the Olenya airfield in the Murmansk region


Currently, about 100 Tu-22М3 is “in storage”, it is expected that 30 machines will be overhauled and upgraded.

The most important means of monitoring space and warning of a missile attack are stationary over-the-horizon radar, which are used as part of the missile attack warning system.

Recently, stationary radars of the old types of such designation are being replaced by new Voronezh radar - meter and decimeter ranges.

Not so long ago, the Voronezh-DM radar was commissioned in the Kaliningrad region, near the Dunaevka airfield. This radar was built to replace the old station of a similar purpose "Volga" in Belarus.

The radar station in the Kaliningrad region serves to control air and space objects flying from the western direction.

The Voronezh-M radar, built near the village of Lekhtusi in the Leningrad Region, is planned to be upgraded to a modification of the Voronezh-VP.

This will allow not only to control the rocket-dangerous north-west direction, but also to observe high-altitude aerial targets on the east coast of the United States.

This year, the Russian Aerospace Forces, in accordance with the state defense order, should receive more than 150 new aircraft and helicopters.

The process of developing and adopting new types of aircraft equipment is actively underway. Usually, new types of combat aircraft are tested at the M. Gromov Flight Research Institute (LII) at the Ramenskoye airfield near Moscow and at the 929 State Flight Test Center of the Ministry of Defense. Chkalov (GLITS) in Akhtubinsk.

New types of combat aircraft entering the VKS armament are initially received for mastering the 4-th Order of Lenin. The Red Banner Center for Military Testing and Training of Military Personnel named after V.P. Chkalov in Lipetsk. Here in Lipetsk is the storage base of aviation equipment.

One of the aviation regiments, mastering the latest technology, is the 23 th IAP, stationed at the Dzyomgi airfield in Komsomolsk-on-Amur.


Satellite image of Google Earth: Su-27CM, Su-35С and Su-30М2 fighters at Dyomgi airfield


The 23-IAP is armed with single-seater Su-27CM and Su-35С and double fighter jets - Su-30М2. All these machines are built KnAAZ, with which the 23-th IAP shares the runway.

In 2011, work began on upgrading the A-50 DPLO aircraft to the A-50 level. At the moment, refinement passed three cars. In the course of the modernization, the electronic complex of the machine was updated, the flight range was increased, and the habitability conditions were improved. The Russian Air Force has 18 A-50 and A-50U aircraft in service.

In addition to the aviation component, the airborne forces of the Russian Federation also include anti-missile and air defense forces. Currently, the air defense forces are proceeding with a planned process of replacing the C-300PS anti-aircraft missile systems (ZRS), which were built in the 80s of the modern C-400 systems.


Satellite image of Google Earth: position of ZRS C-400, near the settlement of Kurilovo, Moscow region


Most of the C-300PM systems that were delivered to the air defense units in 90-s have been upgraded to the C-300PM2 level, which will make it possible to operate them for 20 years.

Soon after the reunification of the Crimea with Russia, an anti-aircraft missile division was deployed from another region of the country to reinforce the air defense of the Russian military group in the area.

After a long period of decline, positive changes in the navy began to occur.

After the transition of the main naval base of the Black Sea Fleet (BSF) under the jurisdiction of Russia in March 2014, it began to strengthen the combat strength of the fleet.


Satellite image of Google Earth: warships of the Black Sea Fleet parked in Sevastopol


First of all, there was an increase in the BSF aviation. Multifunctional fighters Su-30CM were deployed to the military airfields of the Crimea.


Satellite image of Google Earth: Su-30CM fighter aircraft at Saki airfield in Crimea


In 2015, there were reports of the relocation of several diesel submarines of the 636 avenue to the Black Sea fleet.

The only aircraft carrier in the Russian Navy's 1143.5 Ave. Admiral Kuznetsov based in the Northern Fleet (MF) from May to August 2015 was undergoing repairs in the dock of the 82 shipyard in Roslyakovo.


Google Earth Satellite Image: Admiral Kuznetsov, an aircraft-carrying cruiser, at the Roslyakovo dock


The air group of the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft cruiser includes the deck fighters Su-33, training and training Su-25UTG, Ka-27 and Ka-29 helicopters.

It is expected that in the future, the Su-33 will be replaced with deck MiG-29K. The contract for the supply of 4 MiG-29KUB and 20 MiG-29K must be executed in 2015 year.

The 1144 Ave. Admiral Nakhimov nuclear missile cruiser is currently under repair at the Zvezdochka ship repair facility in Severodvinsk.

Despite the losses suffered in the past years, the Northern Fleet is still the most numerous and combat-ready part of the Russian Navy.

      Alas and ah .. The main part of the Tu-22M3 is probably still possible to return to stand, but with front-line aircraft, everything is much more complicated. Most of these aircraft have practically reached their end of life, in addition, "storage" in the open air is often detrimental to the condition of aircraft. And in the end this happens to them:

        A lot of pessimism ... In fact, the Tu-22M3's raid is not so great, but the electronics really need to be sorted out and repaired. The resource of radioelements in the blocks is 25 years (the resistors have less for the rest) and there is no longer a 100% guarantee of proper operation. All this, of course, is gradually being replaced and repaired (especially for cars from Olenya), but there are not enough workers (the manufacturer is practically destroyed).

Previously, compared with collections of antique cars, where are they stored? Correctly! In heated boxes with a non-flowing roof, but they belong to a specific person who has a first and last name, the planes belong to the state, which means ANYONE! The trouble with keeping and maintaining readiness drags on during Soviet times, there is never any money for it! As an example, the largest nuclear-powered ship "Ural" is precisely the lack of coastal infrastructure that ruined this EXPENSIVE (at Soviet prices several billion rubles) masterpiece of shipbuilding, as well as the famous submarines "automata" with titanium hulls, and much more ..

      I can be wrong, but the main problem of storing any equipment is the lifetime of all kinds of rubber-plastic products in 10-20 years.

      The fleet is powerful, no words! But they have even better, we have something to strive for.

    What we see - we were officially allowed to see - the rest is hidden in one way or another.

    Everything is much simpler. Americans do not upload pictures with a resolution of less than 0,5 meters, EMNIP. This is prohibited by law. And the fact that on the rest - they don’t represent any special secret ....

    Beautiful pictures)))) Let the Americans look at the power of our fleet ....

    They, unlike us, see these photos almost every day. And with all the changes, but not changed once a year. And they are well aware of the power or weakness of this or that fleet, of one or another air force.

    beautifully yes, but this is exactly what our enemies are observing, one wonders why this military property is not located in hidden storage and parking bases

    Can you tell me how to hide for example half a TU-22M2 / 3? Or several thousand tanks?

      Tanks, by the way, are stored in heated (unheated) boxes - you can see the location of the Kantemirovskaya division in Naro-Fominsk.

    That's it! The technique is crowded, outside the shelters, there is no question of camouflage at all. In short, excellent targets for the first wave of Tomahawks. There is a depressing feeling that somewhere, once I have seen such a picture, only the equipment in the pictures was of a different generation, and was broken into "trash". Well, remember? Right! These were German photographs of Soviet airfields in the Western Special Military District, after their bombing in 1941! Does history really teach nothing? angry

      with modern integration and space exploration, I think it’s not possible to mask the airfield, just like the number of aircraft and their class.
      But it is necessary to think about the cover of military air defense of such objects!

      Do you think planes covered with corrugation hangars (corrugated board) are safe from high-explosive fragmentation unguided missiles?

    You are comparing two generally incomparable things. Combat aircraft on the eve of war and, in principle, decommissioned aircraft (tanks, etc.). Moreover, these storage bases are scattered throughout Russia and are not such primary targets for the Tomahawks, their goals are more interesting

    Here's how! And the photos of the planes parked at the Dzemgi airfield, the ships of the 279th IAP in Severomorsk-3, Lipetsk, Akhtubinsk, Ivanovo - are these also storage bases?

    A photo of the aircraft parked at the Dzemgi airfield

    In the photo taken in Dzemgi, the planes are not in the parking lot, but on, let’s say. next to GDP. Parking elsewhere. In Lipetsk, the mass of aircraft - at BHAT. Most are applicants for cancellation. In Severomorsk, it’s also not clear when the photographs were taken. We make a conclusion based on photos that change 2 times a year.
    Of course, a large number are not in shelters, but I think it’s not worth comparing photographs taken in June 41 at front-line airfields and at parking lots of especially storage bases

    Something. The title photo without a signature is that it is Vladivostok.
