    Lighten up TR-1... it could just as easily be about how the super AESA radars of the US ship led to the Su-24 accidently flying over the ship several times because its electronics were completely defeated and the plane had to get a visual location because every bit of electronics on the aircraft were fried by the super US ship.

    The US ship immediately pulled into port to celebrate their victory...

    Personally I find it nice that they even dare to suggest Russian superiority in military equipment... never would have happened even just 10 years ago in the early 2000s.

    Yep so Kibinhy is not the part of Su-24 avionics. So that story regarding Su-24 jamming Donald cook is wrong.

    The US Navy has accepted that Su 24 jammed the Aegis . Maybe the part in the report stating that the Kibinhy EW system was used is wrong .

    Why do you need Khibiny to jam a pre-jammed system like Aegis?

    How exactly has the US Navy accepted the Su-24 jammed Aegis??!?!

    It was a RECO Su-24! It's jammer is (aside from old as hell) is for basic self protection.

    The US had send two destroyers to the Black sea . The USS Donald Cook and USS Taylor . Pentagon had then stated -

    “The Donald Cook’s mission is to reassure NATO allies and Black Sea partners of America’s commitment to strengthen and improve interoperability while working towards mutual goals in the region ."

    Donald Cook & Taylor were supposed to be in the Black Sea for an extended period of time . However , the Donald Cook cut short it's mission & left immediately after the incident . Pentagon has NOT clarified why it left abruptly .

    The Pentagon actually used the term "provocative" and "un professional" to describe the incident.

    From that to the Su-24 jamming anything is a huge jump.

    Su-24 was designed to penetrate western IADS with Patriot and HAWK complexes and naval AEGIS is practically not much different than Patriot. It have 4 SPY-1B radar antenna, which cover its own sector to cover full 360°, so in one direction cover only 1 radar antenna. Similarly as with Patriot in AEGIS this SPY-1B radar do both, searching for targets and engaging them with missiles. By the size, this radar is comparable with 64N6 radar from S-300, so probably Su-24 jammers are able to jam SPY-1B radar, specially in so short distances (depend of what kind of jamming it use and how powerful jammer is), when it is meant to jam Patriot radar. True, it work in different band, than Patriot, but it was not unknown for Soviets and considering Su-24 was designed to penetrate western air defense (also on the sea), than most probably Su-24 jammers were calibrated for SPY-1 radar from AEGIS too.

    Su-24 wasn't designed with Patriot in mind though.

    Anyway Su-24 did that penetration through Low altitude using Reliyef terrain following radar, not jamming.

    If it ever use for jamming it will do it from standoff range, which what Su-24MP did. Even in self protection case the jammer will still be sized to the power aperture product of the radar it designed to jam and that's obviously effective not at the distance where the visual identification can be made for that Su-24.

    Self protection jammer anyway is usually for tracking radar working at C, X or Ku Band where the airplane can still physically provide internal space for the antenna. Lower band jammer like S or L-Band requires pod or larger antenna that take up more space and this is kinda difficult to hide. Did USN publish any photo on the Su-24 i wonder ?

    No they did not . Whenever they are at fault they choose not to publish any pics . Two years ago the US Navy shot dead an Indian fisherman off the coast of Dubai mistaking them to be pirates . Even in that case they did not release any pics.

    The Su-24M was designed concurrently if not after the Patriot's initial version.

    The Kh-58 capability speaks to this, as well.

    With the Syrian campaign in the news, where most (if not all) Su-24's are said to be of the Su-24M 'Gefest' type, some info and material on the upgrade package...

    As mentioned previously in this thread, the 'Gefest' upgrade is sometimes confused with the Sukhoi upgrade for the Su-24 (aka Su-24M2) which was abandoned in favor of the Gefest package in 2012, after years of haggling, arguments and delays (originally tested in 2001 Arrow  http://www.royfc.com/news/aug/1301aug04.html).  


    It's reported that the Gefest upgrade is more efficient compared to the Sukhoi one while being 2-3 times cheaper.

    By late 2013, approx. 50 x Su-24M's were reported to have been upgraded...current numbers are not verifiably known but it's been estimated that around 70-80 have been upgraded serving with units in 3 Military districts.


    The new subsystem (SVP-24 Gefest & T) allows conducting precision bombing attacks against ground targets in adverse weather conditions.

    It consists of aircraft on-board equipment and terrestrial automated system of flight mission preparation and control that are connected with the single special software.

    SVP-24 features comprehensive information processing taking into account many factors that influence navigation accuracy and field use, especially in the course of maneuvering of an aircraft, high performance and equipment reliability, as well as electronic ground map.

    Moreover, the crew of Su-24M has got the possibility to automatically exchange information with other aircraft, and the ground command center has got the possibility of automatic control, including the redirection of the striking force in the real time scale.

    http://www.aviasalon.com/en/news/item/news_id-308.htm


    Expanded range of guided weapons, used on board the bomber, in particular enables the use of Kh-31A and Kh-59MK, anti-radar missiles Kh-31P, corrected bombs KAB-500Kr. Improved aircraft EW system.

    Standard Su-24M ---->> Su-24M-Gefest










    The company has made variants of the SVP-24 subsystem for other aircraft as well....Tu-22M, MiG-27, Ka-50/Mi-24 and just in July the company direktor reported state tests for Su-25 equipped with the SVP-24-25 system....not sure how this corresponds to the Su-25SM3 upgrade

    The Su-25 ("Rook"), equipped with a special computing subsystem SVP-24-25, which provides higher accuracy at stage of state trials, reported by the CEO of "Gefest & T" Alexander Panin, in July 2015. "The completion of state tests are expected in the third quarter after several dozen test flights," - he said.
    According to the director, "is the solution to equip front-line Su-25 subsystem SVP-24-25 with the successful completion of the ongoing phase state tests."

    If it is cheap, they should have upgraded quite a few more Su-24's with it. I heard great things about it and could be used for a large amount of aircrafts. MiG-29's, etc.

    70 - 80 is quite a low number compared to all the Su-24M's Russia has. But then again, equipment is old, so they may not bother?

    Fantastic info mate +1 to you tomorrow.

    Well apparently there are about 120 Su-24's in active service, so 70-80 Gefest units + 20 odd Su-24M2's would constitue the majority of them

    I think one segment of those modernization of RuAF planes is not that much mentioned as it should be and it is data link network capabilities. All the time western medias and NATO gives to their planes the upper hand, because they have data link network with sharing situation picture between the planes and command center, that not every one in the group need to turn on their radars and other sensors, etc. RuAF Syrian operation show, that RuAF have the same data link network capabilities, where they share their situation picture between the planes and where one in the group have radar on and mapping the ground to search for targets and deliver them to the other in group or share the picture from UAV and coordinate the work. Satelitte navigation and data link network give night capabilities even to Su-25SM, which doesn't have night equipment.

    The only thing, which we still have to see is the night picture from Platan complex in Su-34.

    I wonder if any Su-30SM throw any bomb in this operation in Syria or are they only for air protection and as command plane to coordinate the work with the group.

    In the link I posted it says it has the ability to automaticaly exchange information with other aircraft. I'm not sure whether it's done via a ground based command post (like the strelets mentioned above) or directly.

    I wonder if any Su-30SM throw any bomb in this operation in Syria or are they only for air protection and as command plane to coordinate the work with the group.

    Probably not or at least we haven't heard or seen anything yet

    A couple of questions.... how many of the fleet of Su-24's were upgraded to have GLONASS? All of them, or the majority?
    What type of Su-24's are in Syria? The M or M2?
    The plane that was shot down...what model was that?
