77
In the American administration, they assume that the newest “advanced” aircraft of radio engineering and optoelectronic reconnaissance Tu-214P began to be used by the Russian Aerospace Force of the Russian Federation, reports RIA News CNN message.




“A plane of this type has recently arrived at the Russian base in the province of Latakia. There was no official confirmation of this from the Russian side, ”an unnamed source in the White House told the TV channel.

The interlocutor emphasized that “the tracking systems of the Tu-214P are distinguished by a high degree of accuracy”.

According to him, "we are talking about an advanced reconnaissance aircraft, which is equipped with all-weather radar systems and electro-optical sensors that give images similar to photographs."

“The Tu-214P can track signals and communication between enemy forces, it potentially gives Russians more opportunities to track US aircraft in Syria,” the official said.

RIA "News»Notes that the official confirmation of this information does not yet have.

      It’s becoming sadder for the Yankees to do lawlessness in Syria, bomb the hospital and the civilians, and then take out the dill phrasebook and say it’s not us, it’s them themselves, IT'S RUSSIA! Get striped objective control! am

        Truly America - Captain Obvious!


        A lot of things appeared in Syria, originally from Russia:

        The Internet is actively distributing a video of the disruption of a missile attack from an ATGM using an armored vehicle in the desert.

        In the frames, an anti-tank missile is launched, approaching the target, but just before it touches the armor, it soars upward. The quality of the video does not allow us to accurately identify what kind of target the ATGM operator wanted to hit.

        The authors claim that this is a terrorist attack on the T-90 tank, owned by the Syrian army, and saves the Soviet electronic countermeasure system from high-precision weapons - “Shtora”.

        “The video was shot from the side of the barmaley,” social networks write.

            Hmm ... So in the message that you just submitted, it was written that this BMP-3 was at that moment in Saudi Arabia ...

            Yesterday I puzzled for a long time over this information, and didn’t come to anything worthwhile ...

            This suggests once again that any information should be treated with some skepticism ...

            PS Although in essence - it's nice to hear about this ...

      The Turks wanted to hide the location of their troops from Russia, but nothing can be hidden from the TU-214R. It is enough for the plane to fly near the Turkish border and all the ins and outs of the Turkish army will be exposed. The scout is equipped with all-weather radars and optical-electronic sensors of the "Fraction" system. "Fraction" can show any object at a distance of up to 400 kilometers. At the same time, nothing will hide from the system; it sees through smoke, fog, vegetation, snow and even the ground. Now Russia will know the detailed location of all military facilities of terrorists and their Turkish accomplices. Ankara, like Western propagandists, constantly accuse Russia of bombing civilian targets. Thanks to the plane scout in the sky of Syria, it will be possible to collect detailed incriminating evidence on fans of shelling civilians. Surely, detailed shooting of Turkish artillery shelling Syrian Kurds will educate Turkish politicians.

      there’s nothing surprising. There isn’t any news about it on Facebook yet. And the United States draws information only from facebook.

    a question for experts, but can this aircraft be used on the ground? Say, it’s not flight weather, but you launch all intelligence systems just from the runway? it is clear that the coverage is greatly reduced, but in principle, is there such an option?

      I think it is possible, but beyond the vicinity of the runway you will not see anything.

    Take a look at the article on TU-214R on Wikipedia - there is an edit for February 16, 2016:

    Application [edit | edit wiki text]
    On February 16, 2016, flight number RF-64514 arrived at the Khmeimim airfield near Latakia, used by the Russian air forces in Syria, for reconnaissance operations. [4]

    Now it’s clear where you get the information from)))
    By the way - the USA only ASSUMES, and Wikipedia already calls the tail number. Circus, damn it))

    “The Tu-214P can track signals and communication between enemy forces, it potentially gives Russians more opportunities to track US aircraft in Syria,” the official said.
    All Yankees are now quietly conducting bombing of peaceful objects. And then to say that the Russian VKS did not succeed.

    Some strange statements. What does "suppose" mean? Even the antediluvian SPO "Birch", a bearded (honestly, I don't remember) year of invention, is capable of recognizing an object of radiation, even a type-nike-hercules-patriot-fighter and so on. And pi ... (for some reason this word is blocked) the Yankees cannot recognize what the radar is emitting? Some nonsense

    All in good time.
    There will be a press conference of Konashenkov, there will be more information, there will be statements.
    A great way to collect information about pen..sov planes and test your technique!

    5 years have passed and now I can boast that I happened to take part in the work on this machine. And I see that it was not in vain that they tried with a salary as a saleswoman in a girl’s underwear shop. However, now the design bureau is no longer there: all the leading specialists simply retired, and those who were younger were now working on the MS-21 in the new organization.

    The usual thing! Test, test, verify, shoot the latest weapons in real combat conditions. Such systems will not be priced in a future major war, God forbid, of course, but as Comrade Stalin said: “Good thing, comrades!” And the fact that screaming, raging and falling into hysteria, and this is a common thing for years now that way 700-800.

    "... and electro-optical sensors that produce images similar to photographs."
    I apologize wildly, but "electro-optical sensors" are well-known cameras with a digital matrix (albeit a higher resolution than conventional ones), including the IR range, I wonder what, apart from photographic images, should they produce? The obtained data can be approximated into a digital map of the area.
    Although it sounds beautiful - a military satellite with an electron-optical sensor than just with a high-resolution digital wide-range camera :)

    The American administration suggests that ...
    - when they start to "recognize" too much, then too (!) quickly begin to "grow old" (and their "defense industry") ... Therefore, we decided not to poke our nose into the Russian Aerospace Forces anymore!
    Russian Aerospace Forces began using the latest “advanced” aircraft in Syria
