Military Review

The National Interest has compiled a list of the most formidable fighters fighting in Syria

39
The National Interest reviewer Dave Majumdar has compiled a list of the most deadly fighters fighting in Syria, which included two Russian aircraft at once, writes RIA "News".




In particular, the Russian Su-34, which replaced its predecessor, the Su-24, was named one of the most powerful. According to Majumdar, this fighter has powerful air-to-air self-defense capabilities; in addition, along with the R-73 short-range missiles, it is equipped with long-range missiles and R-77 air-to-air missiles. Another fundamental feature of the aircraft is the radar, which makes it possible to recognize the threat from behind.

The list also included the Su-30 multi-role fighter, which is mainly used to accompany combat aircraft during air-to-air operations, but at the same time having a powerful potential for air-to-ground strikes.

Among the airplanes of other states attacking the positions of the Islamic State militants, Majumdar noted the F-22 Raptor multipurpose fighter from the US Air Force with a high-speed combat platform. The US military uses it for reconnaissance, monitoring and control.

Also on the list were the Boeing EA - 18 Growler - the US Navy's deck-mounted electronic warfare aircraft that can disable enemy radar and communications thanks to a set of sensors, including the ALQ-218 wideband receiver and the ALQ-99 jammer.

In the last place was the French Dassault Rafale with an electronic radar Thales RBE2 for scanning the terrain, which in the future is planned to be replaced by the ASEA system.

    Our aircraft SPECIFICALLY work so that only splashes and shreds of bandits fly around, and they have a "Raptor" used for reconnaissance, control and management !!! Who do they manage? Probably all ISIS data is transmitted, it’s too “effective” for the second year already destroying it. Excavators and motorcyclists are a worthy goal for them.
    But the electronic warfare aircraft EW - this is generally a masterpiece ... Where did the gangs have radars and developed electronic communications? it can cause nothing but laughter!

      And who is this Majumar, is he like a pilot and had to pilot our cars? Or is he an aircraft designer who has the most advanced developments behind him, he is by no means the most banal and also illiterate PR man! And besides, this couch “genius” is also a great tactician and strategist, but won't this “expert” explain to us why our ISIS inflicted more damage in one month than the entire pro-American coalition in a year? That's just it ... And you, dear gentlemen, Administrators, I ask you not to bombard IN with "delusional utterances" of all kinds of "majumars" there, do not undermine the authority of the essentially serious Military Review!

      You are in vain, the developed electronic warfare system has not hurt anyone. After all, in addition to enemy radars, you can extinguish: radio stations, as well as satellite and cell phones.

    Although according to the reports of our representatives, Su-24, inflicted more than 90% of attacks on targets. Majumdaru sees only "fresh" scary. And our "old men" are slowly strangling ISIS. yes

        remembered from the past

        50 years - the anniversary of "air hooliganism", not included in the Guinness Book of Records.
        As eyewitnesses recall, that day in 1965 turned out to be hot. On a lazy Friday afternoon, it was crowded on the promenade, and on the city beach - in general, the apple had nowhere to fall. Young Novosibirsk citizens - students and schoolchildren have just embarked on a vacation. Silence, calm and goodness - summer in Soviet Novosibirsk.
        The city was preparing to fall into an afternoon nap, when suddenly ... a roar came from the sky. The sound grew and quickly turned into a menacing one. On the embankment, they began to look around in alarm: what is noise?
        And suddenly a silver lightning appeared over the Rest Island (the closest Ob island to the Communal Bridge). And ... it began to fall into the Ob, but not as steeply as a stone, but along a smooth descending one. When a few meters were left to the water, the silver race car leveled off and went smoothly.
        - Yes, it's a plane! A true combat fighter! Someone exclaimed on the waterfront.
        The crowd fell silent in horror: the fighter flew low over the waves directly to the Communal Bridge. Water under the plane was boiling with white breakers - either from the incredible speed of the car, or from the impact of a jet stream from the nozzle. It seemed that a silver boat was flying above the water, and a white track stretched behind it (it is called wake).
        - What will happen? Asked the student girl in a fallen voice.
        Novosibirsk was anxiously silent: if an unknown hooligan at the helm of a fighter makes a mistake even a millimeter, a tragedy will occur. On the bridge - hundreds of people in cars, trolleybuses and buses rush about their business. God forbid, the ace will crash into the support of the Communal ...
        The plane ducked right under the central arch of the bridge and immediately left on the other side. From the shore it seemed an unprecedented trick. Someone sighed in relief. But then the jet engine howled, and there, behind the bridge, a silver lightning darted upward.
        People on the other side of the embankment, where the Gorodskoye Origin park is located today, were numb: a silver plane emerging from under the Communal Bridge flew directly to the railway bridge. The city history began with it, the fate of the country depends on it, and just now a commodity with a forest goes on it!
        Silver lightning missed the railway bridge only ten meters. The plane went into the sky, and the whole promenade, without saying a word, applauded.

        remembered from the past

        The pilot noticed the communal bridge for a long time. Arriving from Kansk in Novosibirsk for flight training, the ace immediately thought to himself: “I will definitely fly under this bridge!”
        After one of the trainings, Privalov was going to return to the airfield. But, flying over the Ob, I decided to fulfill his promise.
        I hit the target in the direction of the Ob, at a speed of about 700 kilometers per hour. It was scary - before darkening in the eyes. Still - at such a speed, getting into the narrow “window” of the bridge arch (30 meters high and 120 wide) seemed simply impossible. Even a slight touch on the control knob changed the height of the machine by whole meters.
        But the worst was ahead. Just beyond the Communal Bridge - just 950 meters away - is the railway bridge, Russia's most important transport artery. Privalov had exactly five seconds before the collision. And during this time he managed to abruptly change course and, experiencing wild overload, screw into the sky.
        And the next day he was arrested. During the interrogation of the then Marshal of the Soviet Union Rodion Malinovsky, Privalov said that he simply wanted to become a “real pilot”.
        And Malinovsky accused the ace of “Chkalovism”: the test pilot also liked to misbehave at the helm. According to Alexander Kamanov, ironically, the marshal said these words at the Valery Chkalov Novosibirsk Aviation Plant ...
        Privalov, without an airplane, but with a parachute (as was supposed to be in shape), went by train back to Kansk. He threatened, if not a tribunal, then the end of his flying career. However, when the ace arrived at his hometown, a telegram arrived there: “Do not punish the pilot Privalov. To confine ourselves to the activities that were conducted with him (referring to an educational conversation with the marshal. - Ed.). If you were not on vacation, send on vacation. If there was, give ten days of rest at the unit. USSR Minister of Defense Marshal R. Malinovsky. ”
        Apparently, the suicidal courage of the air hooligan conquered the marshal, who was familiar with both Chkalov and Pokryshkin. Which, by the way, were also not opposed to demonstrate their aerial skills. And rightly so. Well, hide it, or what?
        Popular rumor stubbornly appends another line to the telegram: "Regiment commander reprimand." And there were also rumors that Goryachev, the first secretary of the Novosibirsk Regional Party Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, who had a good relationship with L.I., saved the call from the pilot’s punishment. Brezhnev. Although Valentin Privalov was never sent to Vietnam, he nevertheless achieved his goal - they really paid attention to him, and his further career was generally successful. He was transferred to the Gorky region, grew up to lieutenant colonel, was both the squadron commander and deputy regiment commander, but in 1977, due to heart disease, he was forced to leave for "citizen".

      If my memory serves me, is this the one that was built on older processors? Then they were collected from all states to understaff a batch of fighters, because By the time Raptor entered the army, these microcircuits had already ceased to produce.
