    talking about Satellites.. how's the "Polyus" project ?.. has Russians completely given up on it or maybe..want to revive it.. instead of placing ICMB on space... the Polyus can be used to to protect the ICBM en-route to target area.. intercepting the Interceptors.. i feel it's promising since the US and Japan have already began to research a "multiple Interceptors".. a concept looks similar with early Soviets "Istrebitel Satellite" by using a Sat to carry multiple small kinetic interceptor.. that will intercept the warhead along with anything its carries like Decoys.. or Jammers.

    Polus is dead as long as militarisation of space is not conducted. To intercept ICBMs were are coming out with C-500 which will be the most capable in the world.

    Polus may be dead (more then likely a storage unit), and in case of a space based threat, it can become operational. That is the wonders of Soviet technology, is that they expanded and experimented with almost every aspect of military for past,present and future. Difference is, most where prototypes. But the technology has advanced for Russia during the years (especially in the last 5 years), and these old projects (if the blue prints are still existent) can be risen from the tomb and be compatible with today's technology.

    Russian Defense Ministry orders 64 Su-family fighters
    RIA Novosti

    17:35 18/08/2009 MOSCOW, August 18 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian Defense Ministry and the Sukhoi aircraft maker signed on Tuesday a contract on the delivery of 64 Su fighters to the Russian Air Force.

    The contract, signed during the MAKS-2009 air show in Zhukovsky near Moscow, stipulates the delivery of 48 Su-35 by 2015, and 12 Su-27SM and four Su-30M2 multirole fighters by 2011.

    The value of the contract was not disclosed, but according to open sources, the cost of a Su-35 fighter, billed as "4++ generation using fifth-generation technology," is estimated at up to $65 million.

    The head of Vnesheconombank (VEB), Vladimir Dmitriyev, announced at the air show on Tuesday that the national development bank would grant Sukhoi a 3.5 billion-ruble ($109 million) loan to start mass production of Su-35 jets.

    The Su-35 fighter, powered by two 117S engines with thrust vectoring, combines high maneuverability and the capability to effectively engage several air targets simultaneously using both guided and unguided missiles and weapon systems.

    The aircraft also features the new Irbis-E radar with a phased antenna array, which allows the pilot to detect and track up to 30 air targets, while simultaneously engaging up to eight targets.

    It is equipped with a 30-mm cannon with 150 rounds, and can carry up to eight metric tons of combat payload on 12 external mounts.

    Russia's Air Force commander, Col. Gen. Alexander Zelin, said in July that up to three air regiments would be equipped with Su-35 fighters in the future.

    Russia also plans to export at least 160 Su-35 fighters to several countries including India, Malaysia and Algeria.

    That should really increase the situational awareness for the pilot. It is going to take some major bandwidth to process all that information.

    Russian Air Force denies it violated British airspace

    RIA Novosti

    25/03/201020:46

    MOSCOW/LONDON, March 25 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's Air Force has denied claims by Britain that Russian Tu-160 Blackjack strategic bombers violated UK airspace on March 10.

    The U.K. Defense Ministry said on Thursday that two RAF Tornado F3 fighters took off on alert after the Russian bombers allegedly intruded the country's airspace northwest of Scotland. The statement said the planes accompanied the Russian bombers until they left British airspace.

    "Tu-160 strategic bombers did indeed make routine flights over the Arctic and Atlantic oceans on March 10, but there were no airspace violations," Russian Air Force spokesman Lt. Col. Vladimir Drik told RIA Novosti.

    Drik added that the Russian Air Force had distributed an official statement on March 12, which said that two Russian Tu-160s had carried out an 11-hour routine patrol mission over the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans and were shadowed by four NATO fighters - two NATO F-16 Fighting Falcons of the Norwegian Air Force and two RAF Tornados.

    "All flights of Air Force aircraft were and are fulfilled in strict compliance with the international rules on the use of airspace over neutral waters, without violation of other states' borders," Drik said.

    A similar patrol mission in September 2009 was shadowed by an F-22 Raptor, reportedly the first time the world's only fifth-generation fighter aircraft, which uses stealth technology, was sent out to keep an eye on Russian planes.

    Russian strategic bombers resumed patrol flights over the Pacific, Atlantic, and Arctic oceans in August 2007, following an order from then-President Vladimir Putin, and are usually shadowed by less sophisticated NATO aircraft.

    Russia has yet to develop a fifth-generation fighter and has just started testing a prototype, known as the T-50, which is not expected to enter service until 2015. A second U.S. fifth-generation fighter, the F-35 Lightning II, is due to enter service with the U.S. Marine Corps in 2012.

    I'm more inclined to believe RAF. It is well known Russian bombers try to test air defences. Tu-160s defeated their defences the last time, looks like RAF wasn't caught asleep now.

    It was something like 80KM within airspace. This time it is 246km (give or take a few). But even then, at that range, UK would have been destroyed by the onboard weapons, that would have fired at around 2-5000KM away.

    The pictures which were shown by the British seemed to have been taken at high altitude but if they had wanted to screw the Brits they would have made a high speed low altitude approach and then they would have popped up in a typical HI-LO-HI mission profile, I think. I also betcha that by the time the Brits showed up the Blackjacks could have evaded them but decided to stay and "show the flag".

    I don't buy this "violation of airspace' business. I tend to think that this is yet another chapter in the long anti-Russian propaganda campaign by the Brits who have now been at it since 2000 or so...

    And the Russians are just saying "yeah - we can reach you anytime we want. Good for them! russia

    Russia plans to develop 5th-generation 'stealth' helicopters
    RIA Novosti

    18:3613/05/2010 MOSCOW, May 13 (RIA Novosti) - A Russian helicopter company is planning to develop the world's first fifth-generation combat helicopter, which experts say would be able to attack fighter jets and be invisible for radars, the Gazeta daily said on Thursday.

    "We are working on the concept of the fifth-generation combat helicopter," the paper quoted the company's CEO, Andrei Shibitov, as saying at a news conference in Moscow.

    Shibitov did not specify the characteristics of the helicopter, but said the company was going to spend some $1 billion on the project, with more investment expected to be allocated from the state budget.

    The official said the Mil design bureau had been working on a classical rotor model, which features a large main rotor and a smaller auxiliary rotor, while the Kamov design bureau had been developing a coaxial rotor model.

    Military experts believe that the coaxial rotor model is more stable and easy to fly while the classical model is more reliable and has a higher degree of survivability on the battlefield.

    First deputy head of the Russian Academy of Geopolitical Issues, Konstantin Sivkov, told the paper that fifth-generation combat helicopters have never been built before, although the United States has recently begun working on a similar project.

    He said a fifth-generation combat helicopter must have a low radar signature, a high noise reduction, an extended flying range, be equipped with a computerized arms control system, be able to combat fighter jets (existing helicopters are generally only intended to hit ground-based targets) and reach a speed of up to 500-600 km/h (310-370 mph).

    The project cannot proceed, however, unless it is backed by the government.

    "If the government does not sign a contract, the idea will die on the vine," head of the Russian Academy of Geopolitical Issues Leonid Ivashov told Gazeta.

    Ivashov said that with sufficient investment and good organization the new helicopter could be built within five years. Otherwise, the project may drag on for 20-30 years.

    But he was somewhat skeptical about the chances of carrying out the project.

    "We have been trying to tackle everything - fifth-generation planes, fifth-generation helicopters, but nothing of this have so far been supplied to the army - today the army still uses helicopters produced in 1970s," Ivashov said.

    Russia's main combat helicopter, the Mi-24 Hind, is a third-generation helicopter, and a few Mi-28 Havoc, Ka-50 and Ka-52 Hokum, which have just started to arrive in the Russian army, are fourth-generation helicopters.
