Military Review

A link of fighter-bombers and fuel-servicing aircraft will be based on Alexandra Land

61
On the eve of the visit to the Arctic Island of Alexandra Land was made by the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation. As already reported, "Military Review", Sergei Shoigu inspected the construction of the administrative residential complex "Arctic Trefoil", and also checked the degree of readiness of air defense systems deployed on the island.


It became known about the plans for the deployment of Alexandra on a permanent aviation groupings. We are talking about fighter-bomber and tanker aircraft.

A link of fighter-bombers and fuel-servicing aircraft will be based on Alexandra Land


Press Service of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation quotes a statement by the commander of the North fleet - The Joint Strategic Command "North" of the Russian Federation of Vice Admiral Nikolai Evmenov:

Here the link "dryers" - Su-34 or MiG-31 fighters, as well as Il-78 tankers will be based. The island is building a year-round project year-round runway with 2,5 kilometers per 42 meters.


According to Vice-Admiral Evmenov, this will allow landing both the fighter link and the tanker aircraft. In addition, as Nikolai Evmenov put it, the presence of such an airfield "will allow to increase the arm" (that is, the range) in the Far North.

        Even this is not the main thing, Greenland, where one of the main components of NORAD is located, is hit by our Su 34. And it will be convenient to refuel our tactical and strategic aviation, without flying over half of Europe.

          Everything is correct. Russia takes advantage of the icebreaker fleet.
          It is clear that this whole company is not only strategic planning taking into account military threats, but also a struggle for RESOURCES.

          This is far from the main goal, to maintain a military base in such climatic conditions, only to one day (probably, maybe) to strike at NORAD is not profitable and expensive. The main goal of course is resources.

          And there are a number of difficulties.
          1. It is very expensive to extract resources there, oil in particular, due to the lack of technology available to the West. Production technology in extreme conditions of hard-to-recover oil. Technologies that make such mining profitable. The West understands this, incidentally, there are cases of refusal by a number of Western companies to work with Russian companies to develop fields.

          2. The West understands this, and in principle, this does not itch much at the expense of the Arctic as a whole.
          3. The West believes that at the time when Russia can organize full-scale energy production in the Arctic, Western countries will be able to develop and introduce alternative energy sources, which will make traditional energy carriers much less popular.

          P.E. a lot of oil is good, but a lot of oil is even better - but Russia needs to look towards the alternative.
          P.E. It’s clear that the whole company in the Arctic is a purely pursuit of resources.

          The only question is the organization of the delivery and storage of fuel ... It's not just one barrel or tank ...
          Well, and accordingly, we need air defense systems ...

          In general, this is only the beginning, it will grow little by little ...

          PS For some reason, it seems to me that the planned deployment of tankers will strain Pentagon generals more than the presence of a Su-34 link ... They will again yell about the expansion and aggression of Russia ...

      Let them even squeak, even howl. On their land, even along, even across. We do what we want. Our country is located so well that hundreds of bases around the planet are not particularly needed. This is the center of the world. Where necessary, there we get it. And Russia's arms are becoming longer and more muscular.

        They are able to build our own on permafrost, they upgraded the strip in Pevek itself, there one trick-base is poured very quickly (so that the permafrost does not float from the heat of concrete) and fall asleep with earth, and then there’s nothing to be done.

          Exactly ! The work began with a general cleaning, for which respect to the organizers. There have been many things that have been forgotten there since the days of the USSR.
          Yes, if only rocks. Powerful excavators dig a hollow for something, and the strip is compacted with rubble, that's all the rocks (there was a Sunday broadcast on "Russia-24"), the polar soil is insidious, and what is there on the island in fact ... Good luck guys. If only some kakers didn't work. Eternal Galactic wanderers Tajiks have not migrated there yet, I hope.

      More for information: Alexandra Land - an island of the Franz Josef Land archipelago. Administratively part of the Primorsky district of the Arkhangelsk region of Russia. Located on the territory of the state natural reserve of federal significance "Franz Josef Land".

      Since 1981, the Nagurskaya frontier post has been located on the island. Since 2007, the Arctic Shamrock military base has been under construction on the island. Since 2014, an air defense unit of the Russian Northern Fleet has been deployed on the territory of the base. The completion of construction is scheduled for 2016.

      The Nagurskoye aerodrome is one of 13 aerodromes that will be restored for use in connection with the creation on December 1, 2014 of the Sever Joint Strategic Command

        There frost is much easier to tolerate. Well, half an hour, well, sixty degrees, and why? If it’s a blizzard, then yes, it’s hard. Dress for the weather, business. The fact that raw potato at minus 50 explodes in 3 seconds. - not true . Notched - 7-8. It strains the lack of oxygen, it is not felt every second, but it hits the brain fairly hard, as you fly to the mainland. And the guys there create excellent conditions, only training in the fresh air should not be canceled. Tea is not tomatoes in the greenhouse.

    I watched the news story on "Vesti 24" on Saturday, and they were talking about the construction of the complex. Our tricolor is visible from the images from space. http://www.vesti.ru/videos/show/vid/677027/#
    Russia is building XNUMXst century military bases in the Arctic. Six military garrisons will ensure the security of our borders in high latitudes. The northernmost base is located on Alexandra Island, Franz Josef Land Archipelago. For its unusual shape, the ultra-modern structure was named "Arctic Trefoil". The peculiarity of the base is complete autonomy.

    Great news! Of course there are plenty of difficulties, but ours did not come out of such situations with honor! And our construction in permafrost conditions was mastered at the beginning of the last century! Of course, the runway is a very serious engineering structure and has its own characteristics, but we learned to build in the north just as well as the Americans! Even when I was at the reconstruction of the Strategic Aviation airfield in the 70s. , in the Kiev region I often communicated with the candidate of technical sciences Vladimir Kulchitsky, who supervised our work from the research institute, and so from him I learned a lot of interesting things about our developments in the field of construction in high latitudes! (By the way, Vladimir Kulchitsky is the son of academician Kulchitsky, one from outstanding specialists in the construction of reinforced concrete structures and structures, according to whose textbooks we studied at one time)

The range of their missiles (R-29rmu-2 "Sineva") is not less than that of Topol missiles. What other flying time do you keep broadcasting about ??? Do you even know that these rockets are flying through near space? I advise you to study the issue of the composition and capabilities of the strategic nuclear component (sea and land components), perhaps your comments will become more meaningful.

    There rocky soil already at a depth of a couple of meters. She won’t go anywhere. In the permafrost in general it’s enough in winter to have a flat area and you can plant anything on the ground.
    In Yakutsk, a strip in general was built on a swamp, and there is the same permafrost. Nothing works.
    In general, there is widespread practice in the north, in the winter roll out stripes on the ground so that heavy aircraft can be taken. And in some places they put it on ice.

    Pancake ! Crowd, what are you happy about? ! It's nice to sit on the couch. I served there. A separate polar radio-technical air defense regiment, military unit YuYa 03219. In Soviet times, there were points (companies) of our regiment with a radar station. These are the Graham Bell and Nagurskaya Islands. What is a point? These are three or four barracks, a power station and a radar station. Everything ! In the spring the military icebreaker "Baikal" (I think) came, unloaded coal, solarium, food, zip. Any construction only with the help of helicopters! Evacuation, for example, of a sick person, only by helicopter to Rogachi, there is an airfield and a hospital (is there a hospital in Beluzhka? How many kilometers are there? A couple of thousand? And this is nothing that you can fly not every week or even a month? The temperature on the islands is up to - 56 * S. And Rogachi in winter the breeze is such that the airplanes are blown off the runway and the visibility is 0. I do not scare. I served there, unlike you, the sofa ones. I’m not saying that this does not need to be built. The question is the price of construction! I don’t Can airplanes start at -50 * C and below and fly and land at zero visibility? What will they warm up with? Diesel or mini nuclear power plants? They can poke me with their nose, and there is construction equipment ... Starts in October and does not jam until April Is it possible to build something at -40-50 * C? The cemetery is supposed to be at the place of service? Something like that.

    Zomanus. By and large, on Novaya Zemlya it is necessary to build a foundry to utilize the iron accumulated over decades. But essentially new buildings ... This is equivalent to how to build a concrete runway at the North Pole. And the livelihoods of 400-500 people? And if the tooth is sick? appendicitis? An ulcer? A heart ? Injury? Will we operate ourselves? Do we use pliers? A plane only in a month! The weather does not allow! Self-medication experience in history is available. A little from the experience ... In Soviet times: high-quality food from a belly and for slaughter, for soldiers meat, butter, chocolate sweets on holidays. Officers came and fed in the soldiers' canteen - cooks were prepared by conscripts in high quality, and the portions were large. During the worsening weather in winter only on Novaya Zemlya Beluzhka, Rogachi (option 1, 2, 3) depending on temperature and visibility restrictions. When announcing to the squad 3 options, it was forbidden to enlist privately from the premises alone, when announcing option 2, the collective exit of the ordinary squads from the premises was already forbidden: they moved outdoors clutching with each other with their hands so that the wind would not blow away, And getting into the room first of all with their hands Diving into the crotch, warming the values ​​inside. Warm underwear and cotton pants did not save. And what can we say about option 1? The people. This is south! New Earth! What can I say about the ZFI! True, there are no such winds, but the temperature! Only residents of the Arkhangelsk and Vologda regions were taken into service. I don’t remember that someone was sick at my point, they died or were injured only by stupidity.

    Normally, everything will be there. A few days ago I watched a report about this construction site.
    There will be a hospital, and caponiers for aircraft. The base is designed like this. that without special need no one goes out. All buildings are interconnected by galleries. Of course, it will be necessary to clean the strip constantly. As for the temperature, this is no matter how you twist the ocean. There and -40 rarity. This is in the continental regions of Siberia -50-55 normal in winter. And on the coast 30-40 and then not always. There is another misfortune, the wind. I got into Tiksi in a snowstorm, it’s not pleasant enough when the frost is 25 and the wind is 25-30

    Thanks, KnightRider. Judging by the coverage of the season, the end of March and the beginning of April. It's light. The sun hides in early December and appears for several minutes in late March. So in the movie, the middle of spring at the ZFI. Already warm. And in winter, at the ZFI, the black sky and the northern lights are in several rows, but the newspaper under such lighting can be read, but with difficulty. And the temperature is yes, spring -32 * C, warm. And the snow is really not digging with a shovel, but sawed with a saw in blocks. We even made a bathhouse of such blocks, on the floor of the board and an iron barrel as a stove with stones, but on Novaya Zemlya, on the ZPI it is cold.

    It remains to be clarified: how many sunny days there are per year.

    What I saw - IMPRESSES! Russia is building this 800 (!) Km from the pole. It can only be compared with the semi-mythical "New Swabia" of the Germans in Antarctica.

    Correct solution.! The entire Arctic should be protected. I hope such bases appear along the entire coast, and not just in the western part of Russia! 1!
