    Belarusian air defense forces receive advanced Russian radar

    The mobile radar station Protivnik-GE is designed to detect, determine coordinates and track strategic and tactical aircraft, airborne missiles, ballistic targets

    MINSK, August 16. /TASS/. An advanced Russian medium- and long-range air surveillance radar station, Protivnik-GE, has arrived for a radio-technical unit of the Belarusian Air Force and Air Defense troops, the republic’s Defense Ministry reported on Tuesday.

    "A possibility will now appear to detect and track ballistic targets, as well as to increase the range of aerial target detection, increase the mobility of the automated grouping and cut expenses on the radar’s operation through the use of modern technologies," the Belarusian Defense Ministry said.

    As Chief of the Belarusian General Staff, First Deputy Defense Minister Major-General Oleg Belokonev said, the radar delivery is an historic moment for radio-technical troops and the troops’ switchover to "a new qualitative level for ensuring national security, helping to increase combat capabilities considerably and raise their mobility."

    Air Force and Air Defense Commander Major-General Oleg Dvigalyov said that another radar station would enter service early next year and Belarus would receive a total of seven such radars by 2020.

    According to data of the Belarusian Defense Ministry, the mobile three-dimensional radar station Protivnik-GE is designed to detect, determine coordinates and track strategic and tactical aircraft, airborne missiles, ballistic targets, small-size, low-speed aircraft amid intensive jamming, and also to issue radar data to command post automated systems. The small number of transport vehicles and the automated antenna elevation system help quickly deploy (displace) the radar on unprepared terrain within slightly over 30 minutes.

    does anyone actually know whats actually happening with the so-called modernisation plans for the air force??

    there was talk a while back about upgrading their retired Su-27's then their was talk about getting ex-Indian Su-30K and upgrading to KN, and in December 2015 10 Mig-29's were refurbished but no mention of upgrade. With such a small armed forces budget its hard for them to purchase anything great in decent numbers. I have a feeling Belarus is hoping that buying Yak-130 and possibly giving them a homegrown upgrade to combat duties that this will suffice, as it double up as a trainer as well. Which isn't a bad idea however i still think more capable aircraft need to be bought. Dont get me wrong the Yak-130 could be a decent little combat aircraft and would be ideal for taking out helicopters, drones, basic fixed wing as well as ground attack missions, but for taking on more high tech fixed wing fighters they would struggle. A logical solution would be to upgrade existing Mi-24 to Mi-24PN/Mi-35M or depending on condition buy some, their Mig-29's yet again depending on condition they could upgrade some more to their homegrown upgrade to BM level which is similar to M2/SMT which to be honest is good enough for their needs. The Su-25 should also be upgraded. And once this has been done they could look to purchase if budget allows either 12x Su-30Sm, or more likely options buy the ex Indian Su-30K and upgrade as mentioned or upgrade their retired Su-27 to Sm level. Mig-35 could also be a good option but costs to buy new aircraft will no doubt be out of reach of their budget.

    To help save on costs etc they could reduce the number of aircraft in their inventory their numbers are currently approx. as follows(not inc Yak-130):

    Mig-29 x 37 (with 12-13 of BM standard)

    Su-25 x 68

    Mi-24V x 20.


    ideally they could reduce Mi-24 down to 18, keep 2 for parts. The Mig-29 they could upgrade a few more to BM level and aim for 24 in service the rest for spare parts. And keep around 36 Su-25 and have them upgraded, they could keep a few for spares and the rest they could refurbish and upgrade and sell them off to African nations or Iraq to help general cash for upgrades and purchases. Also if the budget allowed they could bring back into service 12 x Su-24 and have them upgraded.

    So to re-cap what they ideally want is as follows:

    Mig-29BM x 24

    Su-25Sm/SM3 x 36

    Mi-24PN/35M x 18

    Su-30KN x 12 or Su-27Sm x 12

    Su-24M2 x 12

    this would give them a good mix of interceptor and ground attack, and back this up with their air defence (which is actually quite good) then they could have a capable air force. And the Yak-130's could in times of conflict if needed be used for combat missions (especially drone hunting).  


    anyone else got any news of whats happening?

    anyone else got any views on what they should go for?

    Six more Mi-8MTV-5 helicopters were delivered to Belarus

    As reported on April 7, 2017 by the Belarusian news agency BELTA, the second batch of Russian Mi-8MTV-5 helicopters was delivered to the airbase of the Air Force and the Belorussian Air Defense Forces in Machulishchi.

    The arriving party of six helicopters completed the contract for the supply of 12 military vehicles to the Ministry of Defense of Belarus. The first batch was transferred to the country in the fall of 2016 by the holding company Helicopters of Russia. Initially, the delivery of the final batch was planned for May of this year, however Kazan Helicopter Plant was able to provide cars in April.



    Helicopters entered the arsenal of the 50th mixed air base in Machulishchi. As the commander of the airbase Andrey Lukyanovich told, the flight and technical staff of the crews were retrained in advance for the operation of this type of helicopters. "The training was conducted by the specialists of the Kazan Helicopter Plant, and the combat training and combat potential of the air base personnel are at a high level," said Andrei Lukyanovich.

    The deputy commander of the Air Force and air defense forces - the chief of aviation Alexander Karev met helicopters at Machulishchi aerodrome. He stressed that the machines received within the framework of strengthening military-technical cooperation will allow the Belarusian army, in particular aviation, to increase combat potential, reliability, and flight safety. "Unique equipment allows helicopters to fly at any time of the day, at low altitudes, in difficult meteorological conditions, to perform parachute and parachute landing. The complex of defense installed on the machines increases their survivability several times," stressed Alexander Karev.

    The senior inspector-pilot of the Air Force and Air Defense Forces, Alexander Ryzhkovsky, reported to the meeting that the distillation of the helicopters was routine, even minor breakdowns were not allowed. "The flights were performed in difficult weather conditions, and the newest equipment allowed them to be carried safely, despite the external similarity to the simple Mi-8 helicopter, these helicopters of the next generation," the pilot said.

    The bmpd comment. As already noted, 12 Mi-8MTV-5 helicopters, ordered by Belarus in 2015, are equipped with the new on-board defense complexes "President-S".
