    Not much here for two years. I would like to ask and with modernization of air bases, it is not only about runways and electronic equipment but also about hangars and shelters for planes to be spared in dry and warm places and not exposed to the weather, when not in duty, how many air bases got new shelters and hangars, even those, which are not yet in modernization process? Majority of Russian air bases have planes in the open and only a few have shelters for them. New planes are expensive and have a lot of sensitive equipment inside, so they need to be stored in objects for longer service life and less malfunctions.

    Most probably to deliver cargo and personal to any place inside Russia. Il-96 have longer range than Il-76. It could be very useful for supplying border guard posts in Arctic regions.

    I remember reading an article a while back that mentioned 75 air bases being upgraded that year, and that the choice of which air bases got upgraded was determined by which bases were receiving new aircraft... so those that got new aircraft were upgraded first... which makes sense to me.

    Aviaindra-2014 : Russo-Indian exercises

    And it gets more interesting ....

    India interested in Russia’s missile systems

    Indian Air Force commanders have expressed interest in the Russian surface-to-air missile systems in the course of the Avia Indra-2014 exercises, Maj. Gen. Sergey Babakov told journalists.
    “They have expressed great interest in our systems, they probably need to modernize their weapons arsenal,” Maj. Gen. Babakov, head of the Russian Air Force's anti-aircraft missile troops, said.
    India is particularly interested in Russia’s S-400 (SA-21 Growler), S-300PM (SA-10d/e), Pantsir-S1 (SA-22 Greyhound) and Buk surface-to-air missile systems, according to Maj. Gen. Babakov.

    http://in.rbth.com/economics/2014/09/04/avia_indra-2014_teaches_pilots_tactics_and_precision_38067.html

    So, the way I look at it is the first phase of the exercise in Russia is over. The next phase will be in India in November this year.It will be interesting if Russia deploys the S-400, BUK and Pantsir-S1 in India.

    This will give the IAF an opportunity to evaluate how these systems perform under Indian conditions.

    Here are satellite pictures of Domna and Dzemgi air base in Far East. Domna have Su-30SM regiment, Dzemgi have Su-35 regiment. Domna have 30 shelters, so new Su-30SM will be stored in there, but the rest of Mig-29 and Su-25 planes will have to be outside. On the other hand Dzemgi doesn't have shelters and Su-35 and Su-27SM fighters have to be outside. This is strange. They pay many millions for those planes, but not few thousand for a roof for them.

    The count will be very difficult... I just watched the most recent Die Hard movie and it seems those sneaky Ruskies have developed a super helicopter that looks like a Hind in a city with the fixed twin 30mm cannon though it seems to fire 50 cal rounds based on their performance against a building... and their muzzle flash.

    But when you fly to the Ukraine and Chernobyl it turns into an Mi-26 heavy lift helo... but can still fire that twin barrel 30mm gun that fires 50 cal ammo...

    It could be worse, you could be watching Rambo 3 where at the end of the movie there's a message personally thanking the Afghan Mujahadeen. Leave it to Hollyweird to pump out horrendously inaccurate movies after another, on top of being stupefying mind numbing garbage.

    Excellent. Domestic machines and tools are very important, specially for case of sanctions, because there is no problem with spare parts and new tools.

    Good news. For air bases and air fields, they should build fixed hard shelters, those tent shelters should be used for operations outside their air bases, when they operate from roads and helicopters from any fields. Of course, those tent shelters will not be used only in RuAF, but also in army for their AD complexes and other expensive equipment, when they will operate outside from their bases.

    Six Russian fighter jets intercepted off Alaska
    Russian MiG 29 Russian fighter jets were intercepted by Canadian and American planes on Wednesday

    Six Russian fighter jets were intercepted by American and Canadian planes off the coast of Alaska on Wednesday, US defence officials have confirmed.

    They entered what is known as the Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ), but did not enter US air space.

    The planes, two of which were MiG 31 jets, left the area without incident.

    Officials said this type of incident was not uncommon, and happens up to 10 times a year.

    The ADIZ is a zone of airspace which extends out approximately 200 miles from the coastline and is mainly within international airspace.

    US sovereign air space extends 12 nautical miles from land.

    Two Alaskan-based F-22 fighter jets and two Canadian CF-18 fighter jets were scrambled to intercept the Russian planes in two separate incidents on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning.

    Also on Wednesday, the Swedish Foreign Ministry said two Russian military aircraft had crossed into Swedish air space south of the Baltic Sea island of Oland.

    The ministry called it a "serious violation".

    Sweden has said it has summoned the Russian ambassador over the incident.
