    In normal strike roles you wont be nowhere near explosing ordinance thats the problem. You are near only during CAS with gravity bombs or unguided ammunition. But still SU24 never actually performed any real long range strike missions like it was its real role, it was almost always doing sort of CAS, except maybe during Iran-Iraq war.

    Well it did really, because missions like hitting the Su-25 factory in Georgia and hitting various targets inside Chechnia and of course bombing villages and mountain bases in Afghanistan in the 1980s all count as hitting targets behind enemy lines. Not all were particularly long range, but they were mostly not on the front line.

    There are unfortunately very little amount of tooling plants in Russia. They have them, but not that many and very specialized. Good thing is, both Japanese and German companies have built tooling plants in Russia with 50% or more localization of parts.

    CIA report on tooling and machine production in Russia (year 1951): http://www.foia.cia.gov/sites/default/files/document_conversions/89801/DOC_0000232459.pdf

    Still surviving, or new tooling/machine building plants:

    Stankoprom, Savelovsky Engineering Plant, Public Corporation «VNIIINSTRUMENT», VNITEP, Scientific and Technical Association «IRE-Polus», SP Donpressmash, Тjаzhmеkhprеss, SASTA, Stankozavod TBS, Moscow Tool-Manufacturing Plant MIZ, Moscow Machine-Tools Plan «MSZ-SALUTE», Krasnodar Machine Building Plant «Sedin», Ryazan Machine Tool Works, Vladimir Machine Building Plant «TECHNICA», STERLITAMAK MACHINE-TOOL ENTERPRISE (STAN GROUP), NIIizmereniya, Kirovgrad hard alloys plant (KZTS), Tyazhpressmash, Ivanovo Heavy-Duty Machine Tool Building Plant.

    "Deputy Industry and Trade Minister Sergei Tsyb has listed Russian sectors that offer the most potential in terms of import substitution: In the machine tool industry, imports reach 90 percent; in heavy machine engineering, from 60 to 80 percent; in the electronics industry, from 80 to 90 percent. By the estimation of the Russian Industry and Trade Ministry, if the import substitution policy is successfully implemented, Russia's reliance on Western suppliers for the most "critical" industries can be expected to decline from 70–90 to 50–60 percent by 2020. Complete import substitution is impossible, so in addition to setting up equivalent domestic production, Russia will have to look for new suppliers.

    Military cooperation with the West was on the wane even before the conflict in Ukraine began. From 2012 onward, the Russian Defense Ministry did not sign any new large contracts for European military products. Furthermore, in August 2013, a regulation was passed banning the use of foreign machine tools if their Russian equivalents were available; the aim of this move was to revive the destroyed Soviet machine tool industry and to raise the share of Russian-made equipment to one third of the industry's requirement. Efforts were made to gradually end the practice of repairing Russian ships at foreign shipyards." - http://rbth.com/defence/2014/12/27/russian_defense_sector_eyes_change_of_focus_to_limit_effect_of_sancti_42601.html

    "Russian government plans to provide up to RUB 6 billion ($170 million) in subsidies for the establishment of production of technical textile and nonwovens machinery in different parts of the country by 2016. It is planned that the funds will be distributed among the leading Russian machinery producers by Stankoprom holding, one of Russia’s largest producers of machinery......" - long article on machine building and tooling plans by Russian gov. - http://www.nonwovens-industry.com/issues/2015-01-01/view_features/russian-government-solving-machinery-shortage-problem

    I am happy that at least in order to try and keep the Russian business, they are opening up shops locally. Guess now the products will also be more competitive due to being cheaper.

    Sure, better something then never. But problems are 2 financing (CBR making moneye to expensive) and market. Russian market alone is too small to establish top-notch machine builders company. I mean they can but it won´t be profitable. Maybe some agreements with India or China on joint production and sales?

    China is much closer in terms of geopolitical struggle then India but relying on one partner is a risky.

    Medvedev 3 days ago about tool building - but no money talk so far.

    Medvedev: machine building can become a "locomotive" of import substitution
    http://ria.ru/economy/20150927/1284785984.html


    I mean knowledge is there but somehow lack of effective investment funding between industry and new inventions -I hope the MIC will be one.

    In the far Eastern Federal University created a robotic complex for the production of parts Ka-62

    Russia's MIG corporation warns it may suspend servicing Bulgarian fighters

    The corporation will raise the issue of legitimacy or further use of the jets by Bulgaria, as well as safety guarantees for the pilots

    SOFIA, October 28. /TASS/. Russian aircraft manufacturing corporation MIG has warned Bulgaria it may suspend the servicing of Bulgarian MIG-29 fighter jets, as follows from a letter the MIG Director General, Yuri Korotkov, has sent to the Russian ambassador in Sofia, Yuri Issakov.

    The warning follows a long dispute over Bulgaria's plans to do repairs and technology upgrades of the MIGs of Russian manufacture at enterprises in Poland that were formalized in an agreement the Bulgarian and Polish Defense Ministers signed Nikolay Nenchev and Tomasz Siemoniak signed on October 22.

    "This is Bulgaria’s bid for closer integration within the EU and NATO," the Bulgarian minister remarked," Nenchev said after the signing ceremony in Warsaw.

    "To Bulgaria, this is a geo-strategic choice, not just a selection of a partner," Siemoniak said on his part. "Our joint cooperation within the EU and NATO acquires new quality. We evaluate highly the bold decision and the brave approach of Minister Nikolay Nenchev; a bold decision of the government, which is highly important."

    In his letter, Sergey Korotkov warned that repairs of engines installed on the Bulgarian jets at Polish plans would lay grounds for a termination of contract obligations by MIG corporation, the developer and manufacturer of the MIG-29 fighter jets, in what concerns their maintenance and servicing in Bulgaria.

    "The question of legitimacy or further use of the jets and safety guarantees for the pilots will also be raised," the letter said.

    "The terms offered by MIG are quite lucrative for Bulgaria economically," Korotkov said. "While Poland is ready to extend the service life of the engines for 1.023 million euro, our corporation would do this for 1.050 million euro."

    "Along with it, Russia will issue a warranty for 500 flight hours versus the 350 hours warrantied by Poland," the letter said. "That means by Bulgarian Air Force will have to make payments to Poland twice as often."

    "Although this incident (the signing of the Bulgarian-Polish agreement TASS) causes deep regret, we proceed from the centuries-old friendship between Russia and Bulgaria and continue hoping that cooperation based on the norms of international law will continue," Korotkov said.

    Bulgarian parliament is expected to ratify the agreement on the MIG-29’s in the coming few days.

    Good picture at link.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russian-built Il-76TD-90VD long-haul cargo aircraft has successfully completed a test landing on an ice airfield in Antarctica, the plane’s manufacturer, Ilyushin Aviation Complex, said in a statement Monday.

    "The joint crew under the command of chief pilot… [Nikolay] Kuimov and chief pilot… [Ruben] Yesayan successfully carried out the first landing on an ice airfield at Novolazarevskaya station in Antarctica on an Il-76TD-90VD aircraft, equipped with a PS-90A-76 engine," the statement reads.

    Ilyushin is a Russian company that manufactures passenger aircraft, military and civil transport aircraft, and special-purpose aircraft.

    Russian Foward-swept wing aircrafts

    Post  higurashihougi on Mon Jan 04, 2016 4:05 am

    Didn't see the old thread about Su-47 so I made this new thread.

    https://www.rt.com/news/327664-forward-swept-wing-russia/

    Russia’s 1st forward-swept wing training aircraft performs maiden flight (VIDEO)

    A private Russian design bureau has conducted a maiden flight of an SR-10 dual-pilot forward-swept wing aerobatic trainer aircraft. It was earlier reported that it is planned to produce 16 SR-10 jets for the Defense Ministry.

    The development of the fully composite twin-seater began at the Modern Aviation Technologies (KB SAT) design engineering bureau in 2007. The initial engineering development model was presented at MAKS-2009 airshow, but in the following years the project encountered financial problems.

    On December 25, SR-10 made its first flight at an airfield near Vorotynsk, in the Kaluga Region, sdelanounas.ru website reports.

    The SR-10 is a subsonic, single engine, all-composite dual-pilot aircraft with a moderate forward-swept wing scheme. Its reported maximum takeoff weight is 2,700 kilograms. The aircraft can reportedly be powered with either a Soviet design AI-25TLSh engine or a modern Russian-made AL-55 gas-turbine jet engine.

    The SR-10’s flying quality parameters largely depend on the power unit. It was designed to have 900kph maximum horizontal flight speed, 1,500 km range capability and a 6,000-meter practical ceiling. Its cruising speed at the 6,000-meter height is 520kph.

    In 2014, the SR-10 lost a Russian Defense Ministry primary training aircraft tender to Yakovlev Yak-152 turboprop trainer aircraft. However, KB SAT is still offering the aircraft to the Air Force as an intermediate trainer.

    Dagestan’s Industry, Trade and Investment Ministry revealed plans to produce up to 16 SR-10 aircraft for Russia’s Defense Ministry, which is expected to allocate up to 2.5 billion rubles into the SR-10 project, the regional bureau of RIA news agency reported in mid-September.

    As of now, Russia’s Air Force is actively using the recently developed Yakovlev Yak-130 as an advanced jet trainer. This aircraft is also delivered to foreign militaries, being positioned also as light attack aircraft.

    Until now, the only operable forward-swept wing aircraft in Russia has been the Sukhoi Su-47 Berkut (Golden Eagle) fighter jet, which never went into mass production, yet became an advanced concept technology demonstrator and a testing ground for technical solutions later integrated into Russia’s 5G fighter jet PAK-FA.
