    The Su-24MR is the recon model, not the strike aircraft... I am sure it could carry a range of sensors that would allow it to track surface ships and submarines in shallow waters...

    Don't think so. To detect submarines, you need very specialized equipment, like a magnetic anomaly detector (MAD) or launch sonobuoys. Be-12, Tu-142 and Il-38 are the only planes in Russia with such equipment.

    Keep in mind that they were working on the Su-32 version of the Su-34 that was supposed to be a dedicated ASW aircraft, so I would expect technology like blue green laser pods and long wave radar systems as well as MAD probes will likely have been developed for the Su-34 and therefore also possibly compatible with the Su-24 recon versions too in upgrades.

    I would expect it would be rather easy to modify a KGMU-2 dispensor pod that normally releases submunitions could be used to deploy sonobuoys...

    Of course remember aircraft have been used since WWII to detect subs simply using radar to detect periscopes.... that might be what they were doing in this case.

    An enlarged Il-114 would be ideal for the role of Il-38 replacement... a slight body extension with extra fuel and it would be perfect.

    An updated version of Sea Dragon that is made smaller by separating some components into long range drones could make it even more effective and easier for smaller countries to afford and for a large country like Russia to afford in numbers.

    Just to confirm some information I had regarding Soviet AV-MF in 1990

    Backfire B carried 1 or 2 Kh-22 "kitchen" ASM
    Backfire C carried 2 or 3 Kh-22 'Kitchen " ASM
    Badger G carried 1 KSR-5 Kingfish ASM
    Bear G carried 2 Kh-22 "kitchen " ASM

    Can the Backfire B carried more than 1 Kh -22 at a time , if lets say they are going for a short range mission ?

    Newest early warning radar-carrying helicopter Ka-35 authorized for service

    The Ka-35 is equipped with a rotating laterally oriented antenna

    MOSCOW, August 25. /TASS/. The Russian Armed Forces have authorized for service the newest early warning radar-carrying helicopter Ka-35, a source in the defense-industrial complex has told TASS.

    "The Ka-35 has passed all tests and has been authorized for service," the source said.

    The source recalled the previous generation helicopter Ka-31, developed for performing early warning functions.

    "It is a relatively old aircraft," he said. "It was developed a while ago for performing a number of roles, such as providing protection for project 1143 ships. It proved highly efficient in this capacity," he said.

    The Ka-31 designers coped with a number of complex technical problems, such as the presence of a large antenna rotating under the fuselage. These solutions proved very helpful in designing the Ka-35 which is equipped with a rotating laterally oriented antenna.

    Russia expects to get 300-tonne capacity ground effect vehicle by 2020

    "We are creating this platform with the prospect for new engines, which will be created in 2018-2020," the Russian naval aviation chief said

    ZHUKOVSKY (Moscow region), August 26. /TASS/. Russia’s Defense Ministry expects to receive by 2020 a new ram wing surface effect vehicle with the carrying capacity of up to 300 tonnes, chief of Russia’s naval aviation Major General Igor Kozhin told reporters on Wednesday.

    "I think by 2020 we will get a real platform, which will be operated quite efficiently ... it will lift up to 240-300 tonnes. It’s a rather practicable craft," Kozhin said at a roundtable discussion on the development of ram wing surface effect vehicles, within the framework of the MAKS-2015 international aviation and space show that opened in the town of Zhukovsky outside Moscow on Tuesday.

    According to him, the Russian Navy currently has a concept for the development of ram wing surface effect vehicles, envisaging the creation of the basic platform that "will be able to move from point A to point B, and then it is planned to equip it with weapons." He said that ekranoplans are sea and ocean vehicles and can hardly be used on rivers.

    According to Kozhin, the Alexeyev Central Design Bureau is engaged in the creation of this platform.

    "We are creating this platform with the prospect for new engines, which will be created in 2018-2020," the naval aviation chief said. He added that the new ram wing surface effect vehicle will have fewer engines than the existing samples of the ram wing craft, as the new engines will have better thrust-weight ratio and higher efficiency.

    Post  nastle77 on Tue Sep 01, 2015 10:51 pm

    The Ka-25 Hormone A was the ASW version but what weapons could it carry most online sources say DC and torpedoes but do not specify what kind of torpedoes and how many ?
    one source says weapon load capacity was 4000 lb ? is that accurate too

    There was an assault version with unguided rocket pods, but it was not widely used.

    Most needed complex for RuNAVY. They will need to deliver NAVY Yak-130 trainers for basic trainings of new pilots, a squadron of carrier based MiG-29KUB for constant training of new carrier pilots and a squadron of Su-30SM for ground based naval pilots training and for advanced combat trainings between MiG-29K and Su-30SM. Yeisk naval center will bring a new level of quality of RuNAVY pilots.

    MOSCOW, January 14 - RIA Novosti. About two-thirds of the planes and helicopters in service with the naval aviation of the Navy of Russia, will be upgraded by 2017, said on Thursday the chief of naval aviation of the Russian Navy, Major General Igor Kozhin.

    "I can say without hiding any figures that about one third of the aircraft we have already replaced with new ones. Modernization work has provided for a third aircraft of the machines already delivered aircraft repair plants, ie in the region of 2016-2017, we just get an update park ", - he said on the TV channel" Russia 24 ".

    In 2008, Russia began large-scale military reform, the key point of which was a program of rearmament. In 2010 it was decided to re-allocate up to 2020, 20 billion rubles to increase the share of new equipment to 70%.

    RuNAVY practically fully form a regiment of pilots for new MiG-29K/KUB carrier fighters. Their main task for this year will be to achieve combat servicing on the carrier.

    Does anyone have info in which aircraft type will be base the new platform? confused

    It is very interesting new. I have not info about how can be the new platform, but this is what I would be looking for (with a long term vision):

    - Long range.
    - Light compared to the current aircrafts.
    - Cheap compared to the current aircrafts.
    - Based on ships.
    - Able to carry and fire a few short range effective Antiship and Antisubmarine guns.
    - Unmanned.
    - Subsonic.

    Austin wrote:Russian Navy Eyes Il-114 as Future MPA

    The article says:

    “In my view, the Il-114 is the best choice for the Russian navy”, Georgy Antsev, general director and designer for Morinformsystem-Agat, told AIN. Agat is the system integrator of electronic equipment for the Russian navy and developer of combat-management systems for warships, fire control systems, coastal patrol and protection systems. Antsev said that Agat is cooperating with Ilyushin, Radar-MMS and other partners to promote the Il-114 as an MPA.

    While I understand that some contractors want to promote the Il-114 for this role, but I do not think it would be the right option. The Il-114 is an aircraft of near 25 years old, even its production for civil use finished without a big success (20 units produced). In my view it is too old desing to be the basis for a succesful new aircraft that can be in active service 50 years since now. Even today seems to me an outdated concept for this role.

    Why light? why shipborne?

    As for missiles (not guns right?) why short range?

    Lack of commercial success is simple due to US policy of destruction of USSR´s industry. Nothing to do with aircraft qualities.
    Of course old design because Western designs like Boeing 777 or Airbus 340 are cool. although same age :d

    and now seriously why iIL-114 is outdated pls?
