On Tuesday, the Super Etendard ground attack aircraft, commissioned by the French Navy 37 years ago, made its farewell flight TASS message from an AFP agency.




“This legendary aircraft served us faithfully. Today we proudly say goodbye to this wonderful machine, ”said the commander of the base in the city of Landivisio (Atlantic coast) Pascal Cassan.

“The Super Etendard supersonic ground attack aircraft was developed and produced by the French company Dassault Aviation. The first flight of the car made in the 1974 year, and in service with the French Navy, these aircraft began to arrive from the year 1978. In total, 85 of such aircraft was built during the operation. ”- said the agency.

Attack aircraft are also in service with the Argentine Navy. At one time, they were used in conflict with Britain, which broke out because of the Falkland Islands (1982 g). Multiple machines in 1983-1985 were leased to the Iraqi Air Force, who fought Iran at the time.

In France, 8 such attack aircraft until recently based on the aircraft carrier "Charles de Gaulle", and took part in operations against the IG.

Now Super Etendard will be completely replaced by multi-purpose fighters Rafale deck modifications.

        Probably the most famous SuperEtandard in history is Roberto Kurilovich’s plane. Most successful for sure ...

        So maybe I didn't use it precisely because "super" is in quotes ?! As you know, I am also a little interested in military equipment, but I practically haven't heard anything about him. About "Harriers", about "Hornets" and others as it was covered, but about this "super-uber" starship did not write. Well, maybe I didn’t come across a car and it’s really not bad, but knowing the Westerners and how they love to show off their weapons (the same "Rafale" they spun, be healthy), but with this miracle technique somehow.

          History of creation. The tactical fighter Dasso Etendard, developed in the mid-50s to participate in the tender lost to the Italian G.91 Fiat, demonstrated such outstanding qualities that the French Navy immediately concluded a contract for its delivery. The fleet needed a strike aircraft, capable of also performing the functions of a high-altitude interceptor. The Argentine navy used these planes against ships of the British fleet. In particular, the destroyer Sheffield and the container ship Atlantic Conveyor were sunk by Exocet missiles launched from Super Etendard aircraft. Bomb damage to the Invincible aircraft carrier was reported, but independent sources do not confirm this. Flight performance [edit | edit wiki text]

      Well, what is it that our plane is also called SUPERJET - is this really a marketing move, but in no case, yes, we spit on profits, we are above this yes It just so happened, and not because they thought how to sell it.
      It’s in their NATO that they only think about money and they think and it’s a matter, therefore they don’t know how to fight ... soldier

      "Super", because it was before and just "Etandar". Would you advise to call it "Archi Etandar" or "Ultra Etandar"?

      Maximum speed - 1,8 Mach (1900 km / h);

      You have to be more attentive, and Mach is a bit small.

        They didn’t seem to be mistaken with speed. 1,8 Maha ~ 1900 km / h. According to other sources, its speed is 2,0 Mach or 2120 km / h.

      I think that he will have a much smaller range (or this is indicated with the PTB), and the flight altitude will be larger. And so our instant-35 will be better in all respects, except for the bomb load and low visibility.

    In interestingly in service with the French Navy for 37 years there is a carrier-based Super Etendard attack aircraft. France’s Defense Ministry is pretty and everything is wonderful! It was a failure to deliver 126 Rafale French fighters to India - at risk. A double rise in price and refusal of technology transfer could lead to the cancellation of the tender for the delivery of the Indian Air Force French Rafale fighters. Instead, Delhi intends to buy an additional batch of Russian Su-30MKI fighters. For Paris, this could mean stopping the production of its own aircraft. Rafale is unique in that it replaces seven types of combat aircraft in the French armed forces: Jaguar fighter-bomber, Super-Etendard carrier-based fighter, Crusader carrier-based fighter, Mirage F1 tactical fighter, Mirage 2000C interceptor, Mirage 2000N / D strike aircraft, the Euro-strategic atomic bomber and reconnaissance Mirage IV. In the future, Rafale will be the first of all European fighters to receive a radar with an active phased antenna array. This will bring him close to the 5th generation fighter. However, this is where the serious advantages of the French car end. Rafale is very specific and expensive to maintain, demanding on locations. Because of this, Dassault Aviation was unable to sell it to anyone other than the French military.

      The French did the right thing by replacing their junk with rafal. The mirages have their pedigree from the ancient 3 mirage, the ethandar and the crusader are morally obsolete 30 years ago.

      All markers are different in taste and color. Quite a pretty plane for its period. As A. N. Tupolev said: "Ugly planes do not fly." And this car even flew very much. Yes, even for who knows how much they fly in Argentina.

      Su-17 bullshit is complete as a fighter due to lack of radar and as a drummer due to lack of booking.
