The Irkutsk aircraft factory transferred to the troops a batch of two-seat Su-30CM fighters.
The first pair of fighters arrived in Tolmachevo to refuel in the evening 12.02.
These were cars with tail numbers 26 and 28 red
We arrived in the evening, around the 17 hours, and stayed overnight in Tolmachevo.
These two boards in the morning 13.02 flew farther.
And after lunch six more cars arrived! Still not having registration numbers, but already having onboard - 23, 21 22, 25, 27, 02, (all red).
Some of the cars sat down releasing brake flaps, like this 02, and some did not. Apparently it depended on the speed of entry.
The brake flap, or air brake, allows you to quickly reduce the speed that is needed when landing, or a combat maneuver. Used at speeds up to 1000 km / h.
Pilots in slang call the shield "Shovel" :-)
The aircraft is equipped with two engines AL-31FP (where AL means Arkhip Lyulka (engine developer), and FP - Afterburner, Rotary), with variable thrust vectoring. It was he, together with the front horizontal tail, provides the aircraft "Super-maneuverability".
The car with the tail number 27, sits down, without releasing the brake exhaust. The photo clearly shows the front horizontal plumage (small wings). Thanks to them, the aircraft can fly at very low speeds for such aircraft, perform maneuvers with large angles of attack.
Unlike its “progenitor” - Su-27UB, Su-30 is capable of performing combat missions related to long range and flight duration and effective control of a group of fighters.
The thrust vector of the engines can be changed by up to ± 16 ° in the vertical plane and up to ± 15 in any direction. Total afterburner - 25 000 KGS
After landing, the aircraft "successfully" rolled on the runway to the military zone, making it possible to remove it on taxiing.
More often, they rule on the platform, to the delight of passengers waiting to land at the airport.
Six "crackers" lined up for refueling.
Combat vehicles are being driven to Millerovo airbase, in the Rostov region, where they will probably be serving
A week ago, four new Su-30CMs were transferred to Millerovo and now their number at the airbase will increase to 20 machines! For information, the cost of one aircraft is about $ 50 million
Refueling with kerosene. The aircraft takes 9400 kg. kerosene. (this is without hanging tanks.)
For the Russian Air Force ordered 70 Su-30CM.
Su-30 are in service with 11 countries, not counting Russia. (in Russia - the most advanced modifications, with the best characteristics ...)
The maximum speed of the aircraft is 2125 km / h. Practical ceiling: - 17 300 m
The aircraft can carry up to 8 tons of combat load on 12 suspension points. Able to perform a wide range of combat missions in various conditions.
4 Su-30SM aircraft take part in a military operation as part of Aviation Russian aerospace forces in Syria.
Refueled, and more! Most likely the next item will be Big Savino (Perm).
"Dry" damn handsome! And from any angle!
Taxied on the executive start. The pilot warmly waved his hand! Nicely! Good luck!
And not only to him, but to all Russian pilots!
And then another car is already driving out.
Short run and a sharp break! Very quickly goes to the sky! Handsomely!
At the same time, it produces surprisingly little noise, despite the afterburner. Even the Su-24, whose engines are weaker, makes a lot of noise much louder! I'm not talking about the MiG-31 ...
The executive 22 is red.
In the frame 3 machine!
How does it quickly accelerates and soars rapidly!
And this pilot waved his wings goodbye! Great! Thank!
Due to the fact that Tolmachevo is a joint home airport. Passengers periodically manage to observe the take-off and landing of military aircraft. And as spotters are glad ...
Another gap! What energy! Just a candle went to heights!
Nevertheless, civil traffic has not been canceled. Sits Airbus A320-214, VP-BOG, S7 Airlines. A "crackers" are waiting for RD Alpha.
Next flew An-24РВ, RA-47804, IrAero. In the background rotorcraft are visible, which are also based in Tolmachevo.
Missed the "civil" and the sky!
Afterburner engines leave hot air behind.
A pleasant surprise! Arrived IL-18, RA-75496. Russian Air Force.
Airplane 47 years! Built at the Moscow factory "Banner of Labor"
Two extreme for today Su-30CM are taxiing out.
Goodbye Novosibirsk! We hope to visit us!
The final point! Amazingly beautiful takeoff!
Great photo hunting!
PJSC “Irkut Corporation” as the lead executor of the state defense order conducts the serial production of highly maneuverable multi-purpose fighters Su-30CM. The aircraft was developed by the Sukhoi Design Bureau and is produced at the Irkutsk Aviation Plant, a branch of PJSC Irkut Corporation.
Please such rates of input of new equipment! That would be in other industries as well!
Give me the upgrade!
And to pilots - clear skies, safe flights, reliable cars and comrades!
