Media: Russia uses radar detection aircraft in Syria

38
The AFL of the Russian Federation began to use DRLO airplanes and A-50 control in Syria to support the anti-terrorist operation, Jane's Defense Weekly magazine writes.




A-50, according to the magazine, was spotted over Syria in late November. “For example, on November 27, an airplane flying along a route typical of the AWACS aircraft was marked by Flightradar24.com, where aircraft responder signals are displayed in real time. The route of the aircraft, which had no open call sign, passed over the northwestern part of Syria at an altitude of about 6 km. The flight duration was about four hours ", - quotes from the blog article bmpd.

According to the author, “there is no evidence that A-50 is using the Khmeimim airbase”, so he concludes that “airplanes are likely to take off from bases on Russian territory, perhaps from Mozdok airfield, where deployed long-range Tu-22М3 bombers used for strikes in Syria. "

A magazine source at the British Defense Ministry noted that "Russian A-50 did not attempt to irradiate the airplanes of the Royal Air Force or other countries of the Western coalition." According to him, "the elimination of conflict situations in the air between Russian and Western aircraft is carried out by Russian and US ground coordination centers."

    Cool as it is to track pickups, because nothing flying seems to be observed?

      If A-50 flies there, then there is a task. The aircraft is very valuable and filled with radar equipment. Most likely he flies not alone but with accompaniment.

      Sometimes Turkish F-16s fly by, and Israeli planes often appear, not to mention the planes of other countries of the so-called “coalition”.

      This is for the same reason that “armor” and S-400 are standing in Hmeimim.
      And also to get a clear picture - who and where is in the sky over Syria and neighboring countries, and at all heights (ground-based radars have problems with this because of the radio horizon and local obstacles). So that no one would be tempted to repeat the incident with the Su-24, but now having gone on the attack unnoticed, on MV or PMV.

    What a stupid thing, 4 hours flew with the radar turned off? What's the point? There are no optical detection tools on the A-50, so it was clearly not him. Maybe the Tu-214R?

      We do not know literally what he said "British Defense Ministry magazine source"- only in the retelling of journalists. Maybe this source meant that the A-50 did not take NATO planes for escort?

        Now it is impossible to distinguish escort "on the aisle" from "review". Yes, and did not station stations AWACS continuous illumination ever.

          Clear. The analogies are really not always true: I transferred the principles of the air defense system to the AWAC: on the S-125, the review / detection and capture / tracking of the target are 2 different radar modes: either we with the bell tower we wavescanning the sector and rotating the antenna post / changing the angle of the antenna, or we grabbed onto the target and scan only the space around it, watching the chosen target and our SAMs, as well as the possible moment of separation of the target - separation of the combat load (because the target may be hunter).
          And it would seem that both the AWACS and the SAM - radar. smile

        If the radar is turned on, then it cannot but accompany all the detected CCs; it is there for that purpose.

    If the duty was on the north-west of Syria, then most likely the emphasis was on the Syrian-Turkish border and on the area where our Su-24 was shot down. And rightly so - the Turks should be under a tight cap.

    The problem of taking over the Syrian-Turkish border on a 100 km stretch of the Syrian-Turkish border has still not been resolved. This is a “black hole” in the Syrian war through which not only ISIS is fully secured, but the main thing is the provision of the “Syrian opposition”. The Americans, for averting their eyes, “urged” the Turks to close this section of the border, but it looked ridiculous. It is that the wasps themselves walled up their entrance to the nest. Therefore, the SA "stalled", it can not go east, into the territory
    occupied by ISIS until it shuts up the "black hole". And there is a difficult mountainous terrain with a population of Turkmen-Turks who are loyal to the Turks. This is Erdogan's bridgehead to conquer Syria. Our Su-24 was shot down there.
    Therefore, our efforts, after the failure of the main oil supplies to Turkey, are focused on helping the SA to close the "black hole", and above all, to close this zone for flights not only of the Turkish Air Force, but of all the "wandering" in the sky of Syria . And the Americans with the “coalition”, using this “slipping” of the SA, are trying to quickly take control of the territory of Syrian oil production, which is now under the control of ISIS. The Americans will “defeat” ISIS by putting this territory under the control of the Syrian “opposition” with ISIS disguised inside. If Syria is not divided into 2-3 parts, and the time comes for the election of a new government, and the pro-Russian leaders will win, then the “sleeping ISIS” will “wake up” again. Here is my vision from the "sofa".

    Or maybe it was not the A-50 at all, the AWACS aircraft, altitude 6000m, will not be enough. Or maybe it was a VPU or an EW airplane, the AFS definitely cannot be said. But if special. Russian aviation is present there is a good training in real combat.
