    KAZAN, October 15 (RIA Novosti) - A Russian airbase for Sukhoi Su-27 fighter aircraft is to be set up in Belarus in 2016, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Air Force Viktor Bondarev said Wednesday.

    “A Russian Air Force base will be created in 2016. It will hold Su-27 fighter aircraft,” Bondarev told journalists during a working visit to construction projects of the Russian Air Force.

    The Russian fighter jets will be based at a military airfield in the city of Bobruisk, Bondarev said, adding that a technical plan for the field’s reconstruction is already in place.

    Will they order more Su-27 to be modernized to Su-27SM standard for Belarus air base or they will place standard Su-27 fighters there?

    i think su-27 are enough for polish air force

    It will be Russian AF Flankers based there... I suspect they will be Su-27SMs... any old Su-27P or Su-27S aircraft will likely be withdrawn from service soon enough as new upgraded models and brand new aircraft replace them.

    Wing, based at the airfield Belbek at Sevastopol, added 14 combat aircraft. On Wednesday here from Krasnodar arrived ten Su-27SM and four Su-30M2

    It seems those Su-27SM, which come to Crimea are from Far East regiments (Habarovsk or Nakhodka regiment). Most probably from Habarovsk, because they are getting replaced with a full regiment of Su-35 there.

    Best planes after PAK-50 in Russian Air Force. Sukhoi Su-30 and Su-34 after that.
    Maybe Russia have best planes in world.
    Best concurrent is United States.

    An interesting video made in November 2014 on board of patrol aircraft Lockheed P-3C Orion Air Portugal to the Baltic Sea, shows his support for the interception and the Russian Su-27 fighter. The Su-27 (tail number "90 red", registration number RF-33740, serial number 29413, the name "Gregory Rechkalov") belongs to the 1st Fighter Squadron 72th Guards Air Novgorod-Klaipeda Red Banner named Marshal II Borzova base of the Baltic Fleet aviation, currently at the airport Chernyakhovsk (Kaliningrad region).

    It's difficult to say. Su-27SM3 could either use N001VEP, either Zhuk-MS radar. They have quite similar capabilities.

    Well it obviously use new processor and compatible with new weapons. Detection range figure however is kinda sketchy.

    ----------
    Anyway is "Su-30MK3" A real thing ?

    http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/new-su-30mk3-flight-tested-182372/

    This "MK3" variant use Zhuk MSE radar instead of N001 family and slated for China.

    With MiG-29K/KUB coming in RuNAVY (all 24 will be delivered to the end of this year and I hope they will order more for rotation in carrier duty), Su-33 will become ground based fighter to protect Arctic door into Russian polar sea. Su-33 are quite new, as they were produced in mid nineties and Kuz went quite rarely on the sea and only with a half of the fleet, what enable their rotation on the carrier. They have better corrosion protection and reinforced structure and landing gear for carrier operations, so they could easily serve as ground based fighters for another two decades. With modernization to Su-27SM3 standard and maybe equipped with Zhuk-MS radar, they will be prefect to operate from extended Arctic bases and to cooperate their interceptions and operations with MiG-31BM. Small airbase in Franc Joseph islands could be such base, where 4 planes will be stationed.

    Pentagon to protest “unsafe and unprofessional” intercept by Russian Su-27

    (archival photo-not the same incident)



    "On the morning of April 7, a US RC-135U, making regular flight in international airspace, was intercepted by the Russian Su-27 in a dangerous (distance - 6m) And unprofessional manner", - told RIA Novosti representative of the US defense department. According to him, "the US is preparing to raise the issue through appropriate diplomatic official channels."

    Russian aircraft in NATO airspace... which is also international airspace is called aggression.

    Perhaps Su-27 pilot reacted appropriately to aggressive US aircraft?

    Anyway... They continue to lie and distort the truth I just don't take their word for anything any more.

    Does anyone have any idea of how many Su-27S were upgraded to SM2 or UBM status?

    An American RC-135U reconnaissance aircraft was buzzed by a Russian Sukhoi Su-27 fighter jet over the Baltic Sea near Russia’s Kaliningrad Region, according to the Pentagon, which accused the Russian pilot of coming dangerously close to the US aircraft.
    [...]
    Major-General Igor Konashenkov, spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, said that the interception was launched after “Russian air defense radars spotted an unidentified air target over the Baltic Sea making steady progress toward the national border.” The aircraft had its transponder turned off, Konashenkov said.

    The Sukhoi Su-27 dispatched to intercept the target identified it as a US Air Force reconnaissance aircraft RC-135U and reported the aircraft’s type and tail number to headquarters. After the Su-27 made several fly-bys around the spy plane, the RC-135U altered course and moved away from Russian border.

    “No emergency situation was reported during the fly-by of the American reconnaissance aircraft,” Konashenkov said.

    "One side of the story" doesn't mean something from a russian source.

    Everybody is screaming about "propaganda": truth must lie between both version of the story. Where were both planes precisely? Which space were they in? Transponder on both planes on/off? Who was the "dirty" player (coming too close or being to dangerous)? Us? Russians? Etc...

    So, to sum up: factual and proved elements (from both side, so we can have an educated guess) and no smokey theory (no matter which side they came from).

    Don't wanna be the troll here (I have no interest in the question of who's the best in the universe, sorry) but this story is pathetic and the loss of life which could have happened here must be well documented so such situations cannot happen again.
