    I know that a Russian Tu-22M and 3 Su-25 were knocked out by BUK systems. Georgia got BUK systems from Ucraina.

    Apparently Tu-160s were used in the conflict to hit radar stations as well. Curios wither they just used Kh-55s or ARMs.

    Wasn't that Su-34?

    Anyway, olimpic war with Georgia was interesting regarding Russian air force. Standar Russian Su-25 could use jamming pods SPS-141 from Soviet times, maybe even more modern ones, but in this war non Su-25 carry any jamming pod and they didn't use PGMs, only standard rocket launchers and dumb bombs. Same goes for Tu-22 and maybe even Su-24. Also why to use Su-34 to destroy radars with ARMs, when Su-24 could do it too. Maybe they try to test Su-34 in real conflict, but on the other hand not too much exposed electronic capabilities to others, who monitor and record it from Turkey.

    Interesting is, that Georgian Spyder, which was the most modern SAM in Georgia, didn't hit any plane, although RuAF use dumb weapons from planes and fly relatively close to them.

    Russian armed forces experience

    Post  Manov on Thu May 21, 2015 7:20 pm

    Guys , i dont know if this is the proper thread to post this but i am really interested in discussing the use of SEAD and other advanced weapons by the RUAF in this conflict because it was their baptism of fire against a modern ADS. I mean it was like fighting a soviet 1990 sam system (excluding s-300), being superior to anything the USA and Israel have fought in their previous wars. As a test, it was a really hard test for the RUAF and they got lot of experience. In the Saker blog there was an entry with really interesting articles.

    One of them its about SEAD.

    There is a good paper called the tanks of august. I can upload it if you want.

    But what i mean, i would like to talk how these developments helped the Russian armed forces modernization plans and doctrines.

    If this topic was talked about i wish you could send me a link to follow the discussion.

    Cheers.

    It was a rehearsal of what is happening in Ukraine, both sides USA and Russia, are playing those lessons now. I guess Russia made a huge leap forward as we see with the "cover" support of the NAF. And the experience allowed them to be more prepared against an advanced enemy. In Ukraine, they still have a powerful IADS ( at least on paper) so the lessons of 8-8-8 are critical. If then they used Su-24m and marginally Su-34. Now they have a really powerful punch with Su-34, Su-30 and the Su-24m2.
