279 CIAP

32
“What is 279 KIAP?” - You ask, my dear reader. I decipher: 279 Ship Fighter Aviation Regiment in the village of Severomorsk-3. It was here that we from Olenegorsk went on a bus for an excursion. Initially, our task was this: to participate in the opening of the volleyball tournament, "dedicated to the Defender of the Fatherland Day." Two hours on the road, and leaving Murmansk and Severomorsk behind us, we drove a whole convoy of two buses and several passenger cars assembled along the road into the whole village of Severomorsk-3. The first thing we met upon arrival was a memorial stele from the Yak-38, on the pylons of which there were already four sets of Nurses suspended. There further on with fresh yellow paint the Sports Hall shines, built as a gift to the village and regiment by Sberbank of Russia. For competitions, everything is very compact and good, but with a minimal presence of spectators. We looked at the training of teams and almost lost some of the guests who were sitting on benches along the walls. I myself, filming a training video, barely managed to save my face and glasses from the ball flying into my head. Therefore, after the opening of the tournament, we go to the next point of our tour.




We boarded buses and after a while driving between fells with rare Christmas trees and birches arrived at the “Summer house”, as the sign on the wall reported to the right of the door. I could not resist and ask a person in the form of a technician in the dusk of the corridor: “Is this your“ flight house ”... or“ summer ”house?”. Humor accepted and laughs: "Flight". That is what the neglect of one letter "E" leads to. As you understood, we visited the elite aviation unit.



This was indicated by the Su-34 K (ship), with elevator wings raised in front of the flight house, Ka-52 under a tarp, standing in a line. Then there were the Ans - four-motor ones, with whom I personally would like to take a photo, but stood far away and were not allowed to see them. The “Flight House” itself showed traces of the ruin of the “Grobochevsky” period. Although, on the one hand, wooden floors, as I was convinced from my own experience, do not so much accumulate statistical electricity, and this may be important with the equipment that we saw. There was also a small room with two simulators, a full-length punching bag, prefabricated dumbbells, on the middle one there were two circles each with tags in “5 kg”.

For an excursion to 60, a building in which twenty years of repair was not carried out was not enough, and after visiting the wardrobe room with aero-unloading suits, most of them went outside. But one of our mates was nevertheless dressed in full gear, and they began to acquaint us on the street with all the elements of equipment. Even the four holes on the helmet are important - with the ejection they compensate for a part of the blow by the air flow. Between the heads of the children, the folded wings of the Su-34s are visible.



Then we got into the buses again and outside the windows we saw IL-18 in white color or some model improved on the basis of IL-18. Four-engine An-24 and helicopters. We were taken to the other end of the airfield to the repair hangars. Here everyone could get into the cabins of the Su-34K and Su-25K. Only four or five kilometers from the airfield there was a hill, behind which, as we were told, the Barents Sea, and its presence was reflected in a small, but penetrating wind. I was even a little sorry for the techie that helped children and adults to climb into the cockpit of the Su-34K. Delight knew no bounds: "wave your hand to the left, wave your hand to the right." And with might and main worked cameras and cell phones. Apparently, the pilot first straightened out in the cockpit, then threw his left foot over the side and got up on the step, and only then put his right foot on the trap. How much trouble there was to seat the child in the cabin, whose legs were not allowed to do so, like an adult pilot. There were many times when we, the adults, got down from the bottom, ready to grab a girl or a boy, and helped them to find the step with their foot.



The height of the cockpit can be judged by how I, with 178 height of centimeters, touch the radome of the locator and freely pass under the fuselage of the Su-34K to the middle, closer to the tail it is necessary to duck a little.



Su-25K, in the photo - ship-based combat aircraft with a hook on the tail. Below him, without bending down, I passed under the wing next to the fuselage. Beautiful aircraft, and really strong. When approaching an aircraft carrier, it has a speed of 270 km., And a landing 240 km. For 90 meters of the landing deck, it stops to zero (in relation to the deck). The speed of an aircraft carrier reduces braking from 240 km to 56-speed of an aircraft carrier. Those who did not crash at speed in 40 km., Do not understand ... It must be imagined what the pilots and the aircraft themselves are experiencing. No wonder that the pilots who made a hundred landings on an aircraft carrier can be counted on the fingers. I say “on an aircraft carrier”, since you see that ship aviation is also based on land.

In order to present the progress that our aviation has undergone, we must remember that the dry weight of the four-engine Pe-8 was 18 420 kg., Which is two tons less than Su-34K. Su-25 is one meter longer than Pe-2.



On the tail keel of one of the regiment squadron emblems, the second could not be photographed, but I was told that there was a “tiger” there.

When everyone satisfied their curiosity, we headed back to Severomorsk-3, where the flight simulator was waiting for us. The excitement among children was on the verge of a foul, especially when they were getting out of the simulator cabin. It was possible to observe the “flight” at the operator’s stand. On the right screen at the bottom, a map of the area is displayed, on the central one - instruments in the cabin: in the center are two instruments of height and artificial horizon, the second instrument on the lower left shows the chassis and hook release. We were shown a “hooligan” record, where Su-34, taking off, rises into the air, then, losing height, rushes through two hangars and after landing rolls out of the strip, stops a few meters from the An-12 with running engines. The instructor said that for some tourists the recording produces the impression that they are running straight from the cabin to the toilet.

After everyone went through the simulator ... one of the girls (computer training affects): not only refuel from the IL-76, but also landed on the Kuznetsova deck, with some "jumping", but landed. A large queue for a simulator crushed the group into those who were already “flying away” and those who were waiting. Going to the Sports Complex, they dined buckwheat porridge from the camp kitchen. Everyone who congratulated the fighters "Happy Defender of the Fatherland Day", the sergeant ordered to impose a double portion, which led to the immediate destruction of porridge, and almost all of our ten juvenile tourists who remained in the lineup for the simulator were left without porridge. But it’s not for nothing that the Red Army was famous for the motto: "The soldier will not offend the child." The worthy heirs of the Red Army in two minutes resolved the issue with the colonel on his cell phone, and two soldiers took all our children to the soldiers' canteen. And we made a photo session with our breadwinner. We had to put a couple of plates on the table, otherwise it stands out on the snow with a white triangle.

279 CIAP


Everything he saw left a very good mood, but there is such a remark to the government: I would like the rooms where our advocates serve to respond to the level and beauty of our equipment. This is, after all, the world elite of all aviation.

    1st "eagle" squadron.
    2nd tiger squadron


    Apparently the 2nd squadron was engaged in combat work and they were not up to excursions.

    The only recommendation to the author is to write either about things that are interesting, or to study more closely and carefully document the subject of the report.
    This was indicated by the Su-34 K (ship)

          IL-78

          It’s a pity that the video from the simulator was removed, it was at the end of the article, otherwise we would have looked at the records, Il-what. Well this is all the same computer graphics, not a documentary. And how IL-76 differs from 78 if you look at it from the filling hose, I don’t know. I think you can only guess which truck model, which tanker.

          Guys, I'll tell you this thing, just don't be offended ... But since 1939, a decree has been issued: Fighters must wear odd numbers, and bombers must have even numbers. Because of the MiG-27 and 29 and so on. So, this model, as we were told: elongated and reinforced landing gear ... and under the fuselage, between the engines, such a long beam, originally for a LARGE ANTI-SHIP ROCKET, with a 200 kg warhead, explosive and with a range of about 200 km ... This means that the plane being over the Kandalaksha Bay can sink ships in Polyarny. But the "Grobachevskie" times did not allow the completion of this rocket. But such a good beam on the fuselage remained ... I touched it myself. This means that by itself, this particular model was built not as a fighter, but as a bomber, and there simply cannot be a Su-33, but a Su-34K. Then there is another mystery: why the second plane that we examined is called the Su-25, if it is an attack aircraft. But our attack aircraft were all Il-2, Il-8, Il-10 - all with even numbers. And then there is such an opportunity the Su-25 attack aircraft ... This by the way refers to the question: how could an attack aircraft shoot down the Asia Minor "Boeing" over the Outskirts, which the Rada wants to rename "Russia", and rename us "Muscovy". It turns out he is not an attack aircraft, but a fighter converted into an attack aircraft. He became a fighter, but did not lose his destructive tendencies. That is why I do not like to delve into modern aviation, you never know what kind of linden you will be slipped in a photograph or in T.T. Airplane characteristics. Yes, I messed up with the An-24 ... duck, forgive grandfather, don't kick too much, I'm already 58th, sclerosis sometimes prevails, especially in modern technology.

        Well ... if the colonel says that I am standing under the Su-34, then I do not believe him? And this is not saying to me, but to the mayor of Murmansk, with whom the colonel came there ... I just stood by my side and listened to all his comments. You really argue with the colonel right at his airport.

      But An-24 stood there, the airfield operated during the years of the Second World War, and as we were told: it was never bombed, though it was a jump airfield. But there and An-12 stood and Ilya.

    In the 80s he served in this wonderful place. In those days, the Yak-38 (like on a stele) and the MiG-21 flew. True, by the end of the service, the Migi was replaced by the Su-25. Well, of course, there were strategists, they called them the old regiment, and the "small" regiment was called.

    IL-18, our unfading long-lived, in this part - this, of course, is a plus to a great aircraft. But I would really like to take a look at four-engine (!) An-24 ... By the way, and which swords pilots trained? For the article is a definite plus. More to such.

    The 4-motor An-24 is certainly interesting. The article is certainly interesting, but such mistakes ... Well, I would just write 4-motor Ana who knows he will understand what the author meant ...Su-25K, in the photo - a ship-based combat aircraft with a hook on the tail
    Rather, under the "tail", right below in the rear of the fuselage ...

      The brake hook is fixed in the rear of the fuselage with the possibility of rotation around the transverse axis of the aircraft.
      And about the types of aircraft, well, the author is confused, does not have knowledge. But he went, was not too lazy to take pictures and publish a report with photos. Do not scold the pianist, he plays as he can.

    Around means 360 degrees. Hook has an angle of deviation only down and a certain angle from the axis to the right and left.

      It's about turning the hook beam around what - around aircraft transverse axis. What is unclear? The axis of rotation of the brake hook is located in the longitudinal boundaries of the middle aerodynamic chord of the aircraft wing. Could it be more clear? request
      The angle of rotation does not have to be "implied". Specify in the technical specifications (When releasing the brake hook on the Su-33K, the rod turns downward at an angle of 60 °).

    Pasha, thank you for your work. For taking the kids on an excursion. I appeal to critics: - dear friends, the person shared with us his positive emotions. Yes, he is a dilettante in aircraft engineering (like me), but this is not an analytical article, but an "essay on the topic ..." It is worse when a person connected with technology calls bolts screws, and screws - screws. I've met enough of such people in my life.

      I understand that it was easier to upload photos, but who would understand what then. The pilots say that you are sitting in the cockpit of the Su-34 Ship, but they object to me. Well, I was in a hurry: the excursion was on 21, I wanted to lay out by the Defender of the Fatherland Day. But the article hung in my account, with previous articles this was not. They may have deliberated whether such photographs can be put on public display. I just didn’t like that under Yak-38 the NURSasmi cassettes were hung on a stele, but the major pilot said that they also flew like that. But in general, I think that out of envy, they goggle here, they grab onto typos. Why didn’t any soldier praise that they didn’t leave children without porridge? I ask you - quibbles! I'm more interested in WWII aviation, but in modern aviation I could be wrong.

    Man do not worry! But sometimes it’s better to be silent than to speak.
    Next time go on an excursion, on a ship. There you will be told that the Su-33 can only use free-fall bombs in PMU during the day. Maybe they will tell you about the "Tour" ap-ru, with a built-in program for automating the process of combat use of groups of MiG-29K aircraft with various suspension options, including Av.PKR.
    I was there ("Kuznezov") on an excursion more than 20 years ago, but I assume that due to the absence of the MiG-29K as part of the MA of the Navy, and the need for a deep modernization of the Su-33 for the BP Control ASP, followed by a change in doctrine on the use of an aircraft carrier (as a strike), with the introduction of changes in the plans of the BP not only of the MA of the Northern Fleet, but also of its heterogeneous forces, lack of money - nothing has changed!

    And the Su-33 is indirectly related to ship-based anti-ship missiles. The group accompanies RCC to the goal.
    Looks like you didn’t just eat porridge there.

    But is this not the Lunin K-21 in the photo? In Severomorsk, it is she who stands as a museum. I climbed it when the museum was just planned to open and the boat stood in the form in which it was dragged from the ship's cemetery, even without cutting.

    I remember the boys and I climbed onto it while the sailor on duty snapped a mitten. So he then caught us (drove all over the pier until he drove him to the edge) and so kicked his ears that there were two red days. :-)

    I was on "Kiev" when I was in the fifth grade. Handsome. Such a giant - it was already breathtaking.

    BUT my most vivid memories of naval aviation are associated with the first appearance of the "Kiev" in Severomorsk. I was finishing the first grade then. "Kiev" then only came to the Northern Fleet, stood in the roadstead in the Kola Bay and the pilots began to work out the flight program.

    Imagine: spring, bright sunny day, blue transparent northern sky. The boys and I launch boats in puddles on the street. Dushenova. And suddenly, right above our heads, at an altitude of probably 150-200 meters, a dark blue steel bird Yak-38 rushes with a roar from the side of the bay. There was no limit to the boy's delight - cheers were shouting like May 9 at the salute. After that, half of my courtyard friends for the navy were lost, as they unanimously declared: "We will be sea pilots!"

    They said that then this pilot of the fleet commander tore like a garbage cat for violating a flight mission. And no one broke off such tricks from them anymore. And we ... And we probably stared at the sky for another three hours, hoping: "What if it will fly by?"

    Until recently, the only 279th regiment of naval aviation / 2-3 months, the second regiment - 100th / has been armed with Su-33 aircraft, without any additional indexes of the "K" type. No Su-34s have ever been there and will never be. This aircraft / Su-33 /, being primarily a fighter designed to ensure the combat stability of the ship group, carries only NURs and free-falling bombs for work on the ground. Su-33 at a stretch could be called the Su-27K, but even then it is not entirely true. I have been to this regiment more than once, I know the former commander Yevgeny Kuznetsov, met with the current regiment commander, Pavel P., and I can say that none of the regiment's pilots or engineers could call the Su-33 a Su-34 aircraft. This is all one thing to call your own car Mercedes Nissan. So dear Pavel Shasherin was mistaken. It is also incorrect that the Su-25 UTG, which is extremely conventional, calls it the Su-25K. The same as mistakenly calls the submarine-museum K-21 the submarine K-22. In this case, Pavel admitted that he was wrong, and in the case of the Su-33 he persists!)) By the way, the 100th regiment is armed with 20 MiG-29K and 4 MiG-29KUB planes - someone said in the comments, there are none. This information is also in the public domain.

      MiG-29 K were delivered to the Indian aircraft carrier ... so why not be. It was said about the Su-25 UGT that several "blocks" and something else were removed from it, but that it is conditionally combat? He's not alone there, but the conversation is about the fact that the attack aircraft carries the index of a fighter, as you wrote the Su-25, and this should be a fighter, attack aircraft with even numbers, so why is it 25th? We will resolve this dispute in years like this ... when he will be written off from aviation.
