19
The first Su-30MKI airplanes with BrahMos missiles will appear as part of the Indian Air Force in 2017 g, reports RIA News message "Asian Age".



“There are plans to put into service (armed with) the Sukhoi fighter squadrons with the BrahMos integrated missile during the first four months of the 2017 of the year,” the source said.

In total, it is planned to adopt the 3 squadron.

“By December 2016, three tests will be conducted, when the air-based BrahMos will be launched from Su-30MKI for the sea and air targets. These tests will be conducted jointly by Russia and India. After that, we integrate the BrahMos-Su-30MKI platform and prepare them for delivery, ”the source said.



He noted that the "air-launched BrahMos" missile differs from other variants of these missiles by its lower weight (lighter by almost 500 kilograms), and smaller. "

In addition, according to the interlocutor, "she will have a tail stabilizer that regulates the plane during free fall in the first moments after separation from the fighter's body, as well as a slightly modified shape of the nose fairing to minimize air resistance."

The agency’s reference: “BrahMos is a two-stage cruise missile with a solid first-stage launch, which accelerates it to supersonic speed, after which it is separated. The rocket has a range of up to 290 kilometers and retains a supersonic speed throughout the entire flight. The height of the flight can reach 15 kilometers, and the lowest possible height - up to 10 meters. The rocket carries an ordinary warhead weighing from 200 to 300 kg. "

    Well done Indians, act quickly. The aircraft version of the rocket appeared in 2013. And in 2017 - they will already have our Dryers, adapted for the use of these missiles. And you don’t have any terms until 2025 - 2030.

      It is doubtful about 2017. The terms of reference for the modification of the Su-30 seems only to be discussed this year. Unless the suspension itself will be tested. And the radars are unlikely to change, this is provided for in plans to modify the entire Su-30MKI line.

        The integration of air Bramos aboard the Su-30MKI is most likely worked out, they have been dealing with this topic for a long time, so replacing the radar is not required for this.

          A serious application, even squadrons can be seriously damaged by three squadrons.

          If we go from this article to the original, it’s about Bramos and the new radar. In fact, the change of all avionics close to the T-50.

        There is another important fact, such as controlling an airplane with such a missile. I think pilots should undergo additional training. Because an airplane with a missile, in case of refusal to launch, usually does not land, only without a missile.

          They recalled one topic. One familiar flight engineer shared his impressions somehow. Even in Soviet times, they flew at night to bomb targets at the training ground. Aircraft - Tu-16. Bombs to the eyeballs. Including the external suspension. They bombed normally, but one bomb did not leave the pylon. It seems that the locks were unfastened, and it hangs. How to sit down? They shook the car both this and that - to no avail. The infection hangs and does not move. After long negotiations with dispatchers, they decided to plant them all the same. In flight to the airfield, the commander ordered the flight engineer to keep an eye out. Fly - a bomb hangs. Another five minutes - hanging. A quarter of an hour is still there. The observer was distracted for a short while, looking - but there weren’t any bombs. And below is not a landfill at all. The results became known in the morning. The bomb fell on the first railway crossing near the village. Fortunately, there were no casualties. The grandmother, a guard, went to the familiar teas. When it rushed - to the window, and there, no booths, no barriers, no moving ... request

            I also have such a hero, only a pilot. He doesn’t understand what’s stuck in the castles there, the rocket didn’t leave the pylon after launch. In short, the plane fell apart from overload, but he survived. it was said that in all respects he should not have stayed, he should have broken.
            But a miracle happened and he stayed alive, he thumped after the truth is not childish

    Well, fine, wait for the test results. Another reason to scratch the back of our neck for our sworn partners.

      Why should they itch? This is an Indian missile, not a Russian one.

        China

        I would like to add that despite normal relations with India and China, we continue to pursue a counterbalance policy, as well as with respect to Armenia and Azerbaijan, although some of our Armenian friends want more (according to independent sources from Armenian friends).

    This clause is not entirely clear to me:
    "The missile carries an ordinary warhead weighing from 200 to 300 kg."
    And what will prevent this missile from carrying a warhead with a nuclear charge of decent power? Still, 300 kg for an ulcer is not a joke. Yes, even 200 kg. Enlighten who is in the know. Thanks in advance. hi

      Nothing. Weight should be no more than 300 kg warheads. Moreover, the smaller the nuclear charge, the shorter the shelf life. hi
