    The Su-24MR is the recon model, not the strike aircraft... I am sure it could carry a range of sensors that would allow it to track surface ships and submarines in shallow waters...

    Don't think so. To detect submarines, you need very specialized equipment, like a magnetic anomaly detector (MAD) or launch sonobuoys. Be-12, Tu-142 and Il-38 are the only planes in Russia with such equipment.

    Keep in mind that they were working on the Su-32 version of the Su-34 that was supposed to be a dedicated ASW aircraft, so I would expect technology like blue green laser pods and long wave radar systems as well as MAD probes will likely have been developed for the Su-34 and therefore also possibly compatible with the Su-24 recon versions too in upgrades.

    I would expect it would be rather easy to modify a KGMU-2 dispensor pod that normally releases submunitions could be used to deploy sonobuoys...

    Of course remember aircraft have been used since WWII to detect subs simply using radar to detect periscopes.... that might be what they were doing in this case.

    Just to confirm some information I had regarding Soviet AV-MF in 1990

    Backfire B carried 1 or 2 Kh-22 "kitchen" ASM
    Backfire C carried 2 or 3 Kh-22 'Kitchen " ASM
    Badger G carried 1 KSR-5 Kingfish ASM
    Bear G carried 2 Kh-22 "kitchen " ASM

    Can the Backfire B carried more than 1 Kh -22 at a time , if lets say they are going for a short range mission ?

    Newest early warning radar-carrying helicopter Ka-35 authorized for service

    The Ka-35 is equipped with a rotating laterally oriented antenna

    MOSCOW, August 25. /TASS/. The Russian Armed Forces have authorized for service the newest early warning radar-carrying helicopter Ka-35, a source in the defense-industrial complex has told TASS.

    "The Ka-35 has passed all tests and has been authorized for service," the source said.

    The source recalled the previous generation helicopter Ka-31, developed for performing early warning functions.

    "It is a relatively old aircraft," he said. "It was developed a while ago for performing a number of roles, such as providing protection for project 1143 ships. It proved highly efficient in this capacity," he said.

    The Ka-31 designers coped with a number of complex technical problems, such as the presence of a large antenna rotating under the fuselage. These solutions proved very helpful in designing the Ka-35 which is equipped with a rotating laterally oriented antenna.

    The defense Ministry hopes as soon as possible to resume the supply of the Mi-14 naval aviation

    http://tass.ru/armiya-i-opk/2251489

    KAZAN, September 10. /Corr. TASS Alexei Ugarov/. The defense Ministry expects to quickly resume the supply of helicopters amphibian Mi-14 the new versions for aviation of the Russian Navy, including for the protection of the state borders in the Arctic. About it September 10, said Deputy defense Minister of Russia Yuri Borisov.

    "This very popular helicopter, aviation Navy is waiting for him, so we will quickly try to return the second life of this helicopter. We very much count on Mi-14 with a new look," said Borisov during his visit to Kazan helicopter plant.
    "This is connected with the development of our Arctic coast, we don't have helicopters today with such characteristics that could be used in the Arctic," he added.
    The Deputy Minister noted that the Mi-14 has a number of unique characteristics, including load capacity and the possibility of landing on the water. According to him, the Mi-14 is not produced in the last 20 years, so now is a question of the resumption of production of a new modification of this helicopter that will meet modern requirements.
    "This helicopter will be with brand new features that provides for the transfer of it to a number, equipping it with modern avionics, the new VK-2500 engine," - said Borisov.
    He said that on the new helicopter will operate Kazan helicopter plant together with leading aviation institutes and customers from the Russian air force.

    BTW, in related news, do you know what will happen to the Crimea's carrier training facilities - now that the ones in Yejsk have been finished?
    Actually they were finished before the Crimea was annexed - but then the Crimea was annexed and it turns out that Russia could in theory keep using the old ones after all.

    Actually they were finished before the Crimea was annexed - but then the Crimea was annexed and it turns out that Russia could in theory keep using the old ones after all.

    "Independent aviation expert Vladimir Karnozov believes the Crimean NITKA has aged, and its future exploitation and renovation is inexpedient due to the fact that a modern NITKA in Yeysk has come into being. The new simulator will have training grounds for helicopters added in the coming years.  Karnozov told RIR that the Crimean simulator can be used by MiG-29 pilots as a springboard for overclocking. That is, it is a partial imitation of a take-off from deck. Today, the entire technological base of the Crimean NITKA, including the brake machine, needs to be reconstructed.

    Aviation systems experts also take note of the prospect for the introduction of full flight simulators to the mobility system as an important addition to real training flights. Vadim Smirnov, the Director of the Transas Aviation Group told RIR that full flight simulators on the mobility system allow for the realistic modelling of very diverse situations, including adverse weather conditions. In addition, a full flight simulator can be located in any convenient place free of dependence on the area where real training is held. At the same time, the simulator ensures the cost-effectiveness of the preparation process at a significantly higher level of security for the educational process.

    Another well-known expert in the engineering of seafaring ships, Yuri Vedernikov, thinks that electronic simulators can be a compliment to, but will never replace a real simulator. “There is no doubt that it is completely possible to develop the fundamental airplane piloting skills in an 'electric training cabinet,'” he said. “However, the development of the basic skills needed for take-off and landing in a limited space and the take-off and landing coordination of aircraft groups require training in real life. The preparation of reserve carrier-based aviation pilots requires significant lead time.” Experts believe that the Crimean simulator can be opened as a training centre and pilots of carrier-based aircraft from China and India could be trained there. Despite the fact that they have created their own NITKA analogs, the number of aircraft carriers that Russia's allies have is growing. China has started building its second aircraft carrier, as has India, and these countries may need additional training areas."

    However from what i have noticed Russians still do use NITKA occasionally, latest report from just few months ago: http://sputniknews.com/military/20150713/1024556601.html

    Considering, that Yeysk will be naval flight school and training center, RuNAVY should order 12 MiG-29KUB, which will be stationed in Yeysk for new and operational carrier pilots trainings. Having also a training squadron of Su-30SM for ground based naval pilots trainings, they could as well train their air combat. NITKA in Crimea should be used as reserve training center for operational squadrons, when Yeysk will be busy with other trainings.

    Well considering fact its for training only they can just make navalised version of Yak130 for training on NITKA. Its far more convinient, and cheaper, also you are saving resources on actual carrier airwing. Somewhat like US does with their T45s. Even more suitable for this would be SU25s but since they are out of production....Yak 130 it is.

    Russian Helicopters still analysing revival of Mi-14 amphibian

    Russian Helicopters has yet to make a final decision on whether to revive production of the Mil Mi-14 amphibious rotorcraft.

    In July 2015 the company raised the prospect of restarting the programme, which has been dormant since the mid-1980s, but Alexander Shcherbinin, deputy chief executive of business development at the manufacturer, says the project is “still under consideration”.

    Speaking in an interview with Russian news agency TASS, Shcherbinin said market demand, feasibility studies – including with Moscow’s defence ministry – and funding sources, are all under review.

    Preliminary analyses suggest a re-introduction of the Mi-14 would appeal to civil operators in Russia’s far north and those supplying the oil and gas industry, alongside the nation’s armed forces, he says.

    However, alongside a modernised version of the Mi-8-based helicopter, the manufacturer is also considering alternative possibilities, he says.

    Nonetheless, the programme remains a “priority” for Russian Helicopters, says Shcherbinin.

    Nearly 300 Mi-14s were produced at Kazan Helicopters between 1973 and 1986, however Flightglobal’s Fleets Analyzer database records just 44 examples in active service. Operators include Georgia’s army, the Polish Naval Air Arm, and the Syrian air force.

    MOSCOW, January 14 - RIA Novosti. About two-thirds of the planes and helicopters in service with the naval aviation of the Navy of Russia, will be upgraded by 2017, said on Thursday the chief of naval aviation of the Russian Navy, Major General Igor Kozhin.

    "I can say without hiding any figures that about one third of the aircraft we have already replaced with new ones. Modernization work has provided for a third aircraft of the machines already delivered aircraft repair plants, ie in the region of 2016-2017, we just get an update park ", - he said on the TV channel" Russia 24 ".

    In 2008, Russia began large-scale military reform, the key point of which was a program of rearmament. In 2010 it was decided to re-allocate up to 2020, 20 billion rubles to increase the share of new equipment to 70%.
