    Seems US is planning of having high altitude maritime patrol and ASW performed by manned aircraft like P-8 (and alike?, since i doubt they will completely discard turboprops mby something on C-130J platform appears in future) and low altitude one by means of UAVs.

    They have a young model like the P-8 and they have to deal with it. But they know this is not the future. Russia has not an aircraft like this, it is better, because they can move earlier to the unmanned platforms for maritime patrol. In 20-25 years the P-8 will be still a young aircraft but will be severely outdated.

    No one learnt here game theory?

    You can't use aircraft o hunt submarines best part of the year, means you need something (passive sonar system) anyway,and after that the airplanes has no function .

    Russia needs seabed sonar systems , not maritime patrol aircrafts.

    I was talking in overall terms, not about a concrete area. I was not entering in the discussion about the iced areas. I tend to think the future of the maritime patrol from air will be solved with shipborne unmanned aircrafts. It means somethings:

    - The aircraft must be light, then no tripulation and few to zero weapons.
    - The warship will have the information from the aircraft/s and also from their other systems. They will combine them.
    - Like a warship can have unmanned aircarfs can have small unmanned submarines with technologies for detection.
    - Armament based in the warship can be used to answer to the detected threats.
    - Also armament carried by external platforms can be used (strategic bombers, other ships, other submarines,...).

    Maybe it helps to give you a better idea of what I think about.

    But the difference is that with an Aircraft your radar and sonars are not fixed. You can change your position.

    SOSUS was ineffective when two akula class went near US shores for 1 month. When you know where the sonars are, you can adapt you Attack. I'm not saying it's useless but it can't be an offensive tool. And special forces can just cut them before a war.

    SOSU was there as a gatekeeper.

    The russian system is there to cover the whole area, and give real time information about the movement of any ship.

    I think it is quite interesting to see that the Russians preferring the 24/7 radars instead of the airborne units.


    A 24/7 sonar system covering the Russian EEZ and beyond give more than few sonar buoy and maritime radar on an aircraft.

    Starting with that a modern, 200 m long seabed sonar can detect anything in 50 km area. If not then all that you have to do is to increase the sonar length to 1000 m.

    See?

    The maritime aircraft / nuclear submarine needed to cover the area if the sonar failed.


    The US system designed to cover any ocean around the world except the ice covered one.

    The Russian is to cover the home shores, and make impossible for any adversary to operate in attack distance.

    Yes for peace period it's the best choice. But in case of war these 200m sonar wires will be cut.

    I think it is quite interesting to see that the Russians preferring the 24/7 radars instead of the airborne units.

    If they really had the choice between A-50U/100 and ground radars they would chose A-50. They can't because of the cost. Idem for satelit early warning radar and ground base early warning radar.

    I agree that they need seabed sonars but not just it without a second capability with patrol Aircraft.

    It is next to impossible to get close to a 200m sonar wire with anything.


    and the cutting of it is a quite important information, means war drill immediately.


    The early warning aircraft has limited size. Example it hasn't got enought power, and too small for a long wavelenght early warning radar.

    Like the sonabuoys rs of the P-8 Poseidon - compared to a seabed wire sonar the floating sonar is lame and very insensitive.

    I think everyone forget that the airborne application has geometrical advantage, but very bad power ,weight and size disadvantage.

    And the airborne posts are quite easy to destroy, and hard to protect.

    And from one AWACS you can buy 3-4 radar : )

    Fixed radar sites in times of war have lifespan of pack of cigarets in whorehouse. US has dozens of fixed radar installations too so?

    If Russians had to choose whey would have same number if not more maritime aviation borts than US or Japan, but there is not enough money, easy as that.

    Also please stop taking sonar detection as granted, it is not granted, not even by a long shot.

    Agree BUT if you target Russian early warning radar that will be seen as a start for nuk war. So they don't really care if they have enough patrol craft. The tensions between Japan and Russia are about the Kurils. Japan would never be able to exploit them after taking them by destroying pacific fleet. Russia will still be able the destroy all civillian ship exploiting te zone out there.

    The problem for patrol aircraft is that they need some logistic, fuel and airports. In case of a war Russia will probably target fuel tanker all over Japan (and that oulld be a big issue for them). And second they could target their Airports with antirunaway missiles and then destroy P-8 on the ground which can be seen easily with satelites with some cruise missiles. Idem for AWACS.

    Most of the aircrafts of the coalition in 91 were at ranges of Scud D missiles. If you want to win against an opponent which thinks he could win wth an airforce and without true anti air systems to protect them, you just need to destroy it's airfields and Aircraft wih big salvos of missiles and massive land atttacks.

    During the Soviet era was the PVO expected to provide air cover to strike elements of the Soviet Naval Aviation? as it is obvious that the Naval Aviation did not have Fighters or interceptors in its inventory

    Ilyushin Company Completes Modernization of Il-38N Maritime Patrol Aircraft for Russian Navy

    The Ilyushin Aircraft Works fulfilled the state contract to upgrade another batch of anti-submarine Il-38 aircraft of the Russian Navy to the level of Il-38N, the press service of the United Aircraft Corporation said.

    "The Ilyushin aircraft complex successfully completed the maintenance and modernization of two aircraft. In December 2016 they were handed over to the customer. Upon agreement with the command of the Russian Navy aviation they were named after seaborne aviation Commander Viktor Pavlovich Potapov and Navy pilot, Hero of the Soviet Union Mikhail Konstantinovich Verbitsky," it said.

    To promote integration of enterprises of the United Aircraft Corporation the modernization of some aircraft is carried out by the Myasishchev enterprise according to Il documentation.

    The new search and targeting system allows the modernized aircraft to successfully cope with patrolling missions, engage expanded range of armaments in the search and destruction of submarines, in radio-electronic monitoring of surface and air targets, mine planting, search and rescue at sea, as well as environmental monitoring of the water surface.

    The orange and white one on top?

    That is actually a stealth radome and it has just been turned on and is in the process of disappearing from human sight...

    Ilyushin Unveils Il-38 ASW Upgrade for Russian Navy
    by Vladimir Karnozov
    - February 7, 2017, 7:36 AM

    http://www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/defense/2017-02-07/ilyushin-unveils-il-38-asw-upgrade-russian-navy

    The Ilyushin design bureau and the Russian navy have revealed details of a mission systems upgrade and airframe refurbishment of the Il-38 antisubmarine warfare (ASW) aircraft. At a ceremony on January 31 at Ramenskoye airbase south of Moscow, Russian naval aviation commander Gen. Igor Kozhin said that “about 30” of the 54 Il-38s in the inventory will be modernized, in a program that will continue until 2025.

    Nikolai Stolyarov, director for special aviation programs with United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), said Ilyushin and its sister companies Myasischev and Aircraft Repair Plant No.20 have fulfilled “the second defense ministry order for Il-38Ns” (for five and three aircraft, respectively). He added that these companies continue lifetime-extension and modernization work on other military versions of the baseline Il-18 in service with Russia's Air and Space Force. “This platform has proved itself as very reliable, durable and robust airplane. We hope the Il-38N program would resume…after successful completion of special flight trials that will commence shortly.”

    The N version of the Il-38 features the Novella P-38 search and sighting system from St.-Petersburg-based Leninets, which replaces the outdated Berkut-38 on the original Il-38, 65 of which were delivered from 1967 to 1972. The system can track 32 targets simultaneously and has detection range against aircraft of 90 km (50 nm) and sea-going targets of 320 km (173 nm). The Indian Navy was the only export customer, and it still operates five Il-38SD with the Sea Dragon sensor suite, which is an exportable version of the Novella.

    With all-up weight of 68 tons, the Il-38 has a crew of seven and a range of 9,500 km (5,126nm). It is broadly similar to the P-3 Orion, which has filled a similar ASW role with the U.S. Navy. According to Ilyushin, the Il-38N is intended for long-endurance anti-submarine patrols over sea, with simultaneous search for aerial and sea-going targets. In addition, the aircraft can set mine fields and perform search-and-rescue and ecological monitoring duties. Its arsenal of torpedoes, mines, depth charges and buoys has been extended though addition of the PL250-120 Zagon anti-submarine guided bombs. Indian Il-38SDs can fire the Kh-35, whereas the Russian navy decided not to equip its aircraft with anti-ship missiles.

    The Il-38N that was accepted during the January 31 ceremony (RF-755345) was the eighth to be upgraded. It is the second Il-38N to be delivered to the Russian navy's 859 Center in Yeisk on the Black Sea coast for combat use, flight training and type conversion. Commander Gen. Alexei Serdyuk said his center will use these airplanes to train Pacific and Northern Fleet aircrews. “We will employ them on special trials and working out new tactics,” he added

    After the ceremony, Gen. Kozhin told journalists that the Il-38 and Tu-142 will continue the primary ASW types in the Russian inventory. “These are old platforms, but we expect a substantial increase in their capabilities through the renewal of their mission equipment. Other maritime nations will be surprised at the new capabilities these types will demonstrate after modernization,” he declared.

    Kozhin described the Il-38 as “the first indigenous ASW aircraft capable of long-duration flights over ocean, and it is still capable of search and annihilation of submarines.” He praised Ilyushin for producing “such a uniquely durable and reliable machine.” It has been operational with the navy for more than 50years with minimal attrition. “Despite its rather serious age, this aircraft is made very capable through yet another modernization program. The President and defense minister have set the goal to bring the share of new and modernized aircraft in the Russian naval aviation inventory up to 70 percent. We are on track with that.”

    The modernized Ka-27M

    Several photos without interest past the first production batch modernization at JSC "Kumertau Aviation Production Enterprise" (KumAPP) anti-submarine helicopters Ka-27M Offshore Russian Navy aviation. The picture shows the Ka-27M with yellow hull numbers "30", "31", "33" and "36" (as well as two previous repair of sea transport and combat helicopters Ka-29 with yellow hull numbers "90" and "94").

    Pictures allegedly made in December 2016. As we already reported, to February 1, 2017 modernized Ka-27M with the hull number "31 Yellow" has already arrived from Kumertau in the 859-th Center deployment and training of flight personnel of the Russian Navy Naval Aviation in Yeisk.

    Recall that the December 19, 2016 announced the transfer of the Navy Naval Aviation Russian first commercially upgraded to KumAPP Ka-27M, get a new hull number "14 Yellow" (registration number RF-19190).

    In early 2013 JSC "Kamov" and KumAPP concluded the Russian Ministry of Defence contract for the modernization of a production of the first eight drill Ka-27PL of embodiment Ka-27M. Initially commissioning of the first eight modernized Ka-27M assumed by 25 November 2014, then it was postponed to the end of 2015, but in the end, this batch of helicopters was commissioned in December 2016 (the first four Ka-27PL received on KumAPP for Continuous modernization in December 2014).

    KumAPP also has another contract of the Ministry of Defense of Russia (presumably 2014) for the modernization of 14 drill Ka-27PL of embodiment Ka-27M, of which 12 are the first machines were to be handed over in 2016, but in fact, apparently, the contract will be implemented only in 2017.

    According to the financial statements KumAPP of 2015, the value of the first contract KumAPP on repair and modernization of the eight helicopters Ka-27M is 2.785 billion. Rub., And a second contract for the modernization of 14 helicopters Ka-27M is 5.311 billion. Rub. Thus, the contract price of repair with the modernization of a machine is respectively 348 and 379 million. Rubles.

    The modernization program of the Ka-27M has a long history, and in the current version (the product "27D2") as the prototype uses two modernized Ka-27PL - tail number "0909 Black" (serial number 09-09, was converted in 1998 by theme year, then further upgraded as the first prototype of the Ka-27M in the mid-2000s), and the "blue 48" (serial number 012-01, converted in 2008). On completion of state tests of the Ka-27M it was reported in 2015. Ka-27M features developed by JSC "Corporation" Fazotron-NIIR "new" radar command and tactical system "consisting of new acoustic and magnetic systems, SIGINT systems, information systems and on-board radar," Spear-A "with an active phased array antenna bars.

    According to the made in early 2015 to First Deputy General Director and General Designer of JSC "Corporation" Fazotron-NIIR "Yuri Guskov, according to an embodiment of the Ka-27M is planned to modernize 46 Ka-27PL.


    Also in December 2016 the Russian Navy Naval Aviation were transferred to the first six KumAPP overhauled helicopters Ka-29, for the repair of a contract which was listed in the work plan for 2016 KumAPP. The contract value amounted to 435 million rubles. (Thus the price of the repair of the Ka-29 amounted to RUR 72.5 million). The news on the transfer of the party appeared refurbished helicopter Ka-29 with on-board "yellow 85" number).

    Russian MoD decided, that RuNAVY will modernize all remaining Su-33 in their fleet with SVP-24-33 after their excellent results in Syria.

    Considering, that SVP display is also radar display, I wonder what changes radar get to be compatible with SVP-24-33

    I rather suspect the Gefest & T upgrade system is designed to work with what ever MFD or HUDs or radars are already fitted to the aircraft.

    Needing to replace any of the above would just make things more expensive.

    If you think of it as a bombing computer that calculates trajectories and impact points in real time then all it really needs is data about the aircraft it is on (ie altitude, speed, etc) and target information from existing sensors like a targeting pod or onboard radar or IRST... and of course information about the ordinance carried... ie weight and drag.

    They might take the opportunity to upgrade other things while they are at it but I doubt it would be essential.

    Минобороны России решило оснастить в 2017–2018 годах все принадлежащие ему палубные истребители Су-33 системами СВП-24-33, которые повышают точность применения ракет, авиабомб и боеприпасов к авиационному стрелково-пушечному вооружению. Об этом агентству «Интерфакс» сообщил источник в оборонно-промышленном комплексе.


    Russian MoD decided, that RuNAVY will modernize all remaining Su-33 in their fleet with SVP-24-33 after their excellent results in Syria.

    Considering, that SVP display is also radar display, I wonder what changes radar get to be compatible with SVP-24-33
    The is a sub-system called Review-РВБ-Т in SVP-24 complex. That is signal processor, used to convert radar signal to become video signal and display on OR4-TM color TV or/and VM-10 LCD or/and  any MFD and project on Kai-24P HUD's glassed (through BFI block).

    I don't think all of HUDs can intergrated well with BFI to project data/images on the HUD. There is a rumor that the Gefest & T Su-33s will have new HUD to replace the old ILS-31.

    There is one problem, that old basic radar and fundamental FCS computer is not compatible with any such new thing without upgrade or modernization. KNAAPO, which is a producer of Su-33 could not integrate L-150 Pastel RWR and satellite navigation into FCS computer without upgrade like in Su-27SM modernization package. Gefest didn't modernize any Flanker before, but there were two operational modernization packages. KNAAPO Su-27SM package which is made only in KNAAPO by KNAAPO and Su-30KN package from Irkut, which sold it to Belarus. Both have the same capabilities as SVP-24 inside. Modernization went in Zhukovsky, so I see no reason, why wouldn't Gefest simply buy Su-30KN modernization components from Belarus and build them in Su-33. Don't forget that there was a delay in Angolan Su-30KN upgrades.

    I still think, they have bought upgraded FCS computer to install this SVP-24 capabilities and to install SATNAV and new data link, which are basic items for SVP-24 to work. Maybe they also integrate L-150 Pastel in it and could Su-33 now use Kh-31P anti-radar missiles.

    Good news for around 20 aircraft...

    I agree. The SU-33 has a future.
