Crews Su-34 of the Southern District have worked refueling in the air


“In total, about 10 flight crews were involved in the development of a complex element. Refueling in the air was carried out both during the day and at night, singly and as part of a couple, ”the release says.

It is noted that “the crews of IL-78 tankers took to the air with a maximum take-off mass of about 200 tons, transmitting at least 10 tons to each of the operational tactical aircraft during the flight aviation».

“The refueling process was carried out at a distance of less than 20 m from the air tanker at altitudes from 4500 to 6000 m at aircraft speeds of about 600 km / h. At night, refueling was complicated by the fact that it was performed using additional lighting installed on both the Il-78 and the refueling aircraft, ”the press service said.

      Maybe another batch of our planes is preparing to fly to Syria?

        The level of training of pilots pleases! I don’t know what KBP exercise they have, but obviously closer to the end of the course once "At night, refueling was complicated by the fact that it was performed using additional lighting installed both on the Il-78 and on the refueling aircraft." good

    Well, in combat conditions, during patrols, so that the cars do not return to their home airfield for refueling, that's why it is necessary to work out additional corrections now, while there is still the opportunity to calmly train. Ps-Kars, hello !!!

    Train men!
    It’s not in vain that it is said: hard in learning - easy in battle.
    And battles with NATO jackals are just around the corner.

      They are flying not end-to-end - the "Drying" visible to you is refueled from the UPAZ on the right console of the Il-78 tanker aircraft. The length of the hose is about 15 meters, most of the length of which is closed from us by the tanker's fuselage.

    It is quite possible that Crimea, at least above our head, in Sevastopol, is already the third day there is an airplane rumble day and night. However, there is no irritation from this, only a sense of security))
