    Part of the equipment

    The A-100 as a whole repeats the appearance of the A-50 AWACS aircraft, which has a radar installed in the rotating fairing over the fuselage. The radar operates in the S-band (wavelength 7.5-15 cm), has an electronic scanning in height and mechanical - along the horizon. The radar makes 12 revolutions per minute, that is, twice as fast as the A-50 Shmel radar. The efficiency of detection of flying targets is also improved. All other systems are also new, among them the navigation and flight control system PNK-PM.

    On the fuselage A-100 installed additional antennas, especially noticeable round fairing in the nose, which is supposedly located antenna passive accompaniment. A similar antenna is also available at the rear of the fuselage. Another antenna is located on the side of the fuselage in the area of ​​the fairing of the chassis. Presumably, this is an element of the airborne complex of defense. Like the A-50, the A-100 has a satellite communication antenna in the upper part of the fuselage.
    The characteristics of the A-100 can be estimated from its export version A-100E. Its radar is capable of escorting up to 300 targets at a distance of 650 km (for example, a heavy bomber at a high altitude) or 215 km (an EPR target of the order of 1 km.) And control 30 fighters. The aircraft can be in the air up to six hours at a distance of 1000 km from its base. A-100 should replace the existing ARL-50 and A-50U aircraft. Russia has 17 A-50 aircraft based in Ivanovo, 250 km from Moscow.

    A-50 and A-50U

    By 2017, four A-50s were upgraded to version A-50U with the installation of the Shmel-M system. In comparison with the original version, "Shmel-M" is equipped with a new digital data processing system, which replaced the analog system of the previous modification. This reduced mass and increased reliability. According to some sources, the modernized aircraft can detect up to 150 targets at distances up to 600 km, compared to 45 targets for the A-50. The "Bumblebee" radar with mechanical scanning remained unchanged. The transfer of data was improved by installing LCD monitors instead of cathode ray tubes. Communication and navigation facilities have also been replaced. Unlike the base A-50, the A-50U is equipped with not only a kitchen and restrooms, but also a rest room for the crew. The old D-30KP-2 engines remained on the plane. The only external difference between the two modifications is the small planes in the fairing area of ​​the main landing gear rails. At A-50 they served to protect the radar from reflected signals from the Earth.

    Oh so the A-100 Radar only scans in elevation.  Similar as the E-3 Sentry.  I wonder why they not adopt full 3D scanning. Thus allow optimized sector scan mode like E-2D Hawkeye.

    Russian MoD said, that A-100 is gonna be superior to NATO AWACS,actually Sentry already has a detection range of 650km something, so I suppose A-100 will have detection range of around 700-750km.

    That statement has 0 value. And detection range is not the only parametre for AWACS specially that now with stealth technology those max range are useless numbers.

    Why 0 ? What is the point to make the same toy as your potential enemy? Especially considering that potential enemy has bigger numbers you definetely needs to have better quality.

    They always say that. US upgrade constantly their AWACS fleet and they worked much more on them than Russian. Indians use israeli radars on their A-50...

    I'm not saying they are bad but when I hear superior to everything it is like the comments we found from pro-US for their stuff. It is probably on pair with them.

    I doubt it...they wouldn't be upgrading them if they were for sale. They'll probably serve for a long time to come

    Do you mean scan electronically 360deg ?

    It said it scanned 12 times a minute horizontally.... vertical scan is electronic.

    You don't need AESA to just scan a sector.... you just have the signal on in the sectors you want to scan and off in the sectors you don't.

    The Russian Ministry of Defense received the first Tu-214PU-SBUS aircraft

    As reported by the spotter, the Russian Defense Ministry in March 2018 received the first of the two built at the Kazan Aviation Plant named after S.P. Gorbunova (a branch of PJSC "Tupolev") of special-purpose aircrafts-Tu-214PU-SBUS control points - board with serial number 529 (registration number RA-64529). According to the Flightradar24 resource, on March 17, 2018 this aircraft arrived from Kazan to the place of permanent basing at the Chkalovsky airfield near Moscow.

    Batch deliveries of A-100 ‘flying radar’ to start in 2020-2021 - source

    Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said earlier that the A-100 aircraft would start flights by the end of this year

    GELENDZHIK, September 8. /TASS/. Serial deliveries of the A-100 airborne early warning and control (AWACS) aircraft will start in 2020-2021, a source in the defense and industrial complex told TASS.

    "Serial supplies of the aircraft will start in 2020-2021," he said when asked a respective question.

    Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said earlier that the A-100 aircraft would start flights by the end of this year.

    The advanced A-100 Premier AWACS aircraft was designed on the basis of the Il-776MD-90A. It is capable of quickly increasing the radar field in a specified line of operations. The A-100 is capable of detecting and tracking air and other targets and help operate the fighter and strike aviation when setting air, ground and sea targets.

    The Il-22M11 SURT passed state acceptance trials back in 1998. There are pictures of 3 or 4 different planes.

    Maybe they are officially accepted into service just now.

    Not accepted but upgraded with new systems and avionics


    Next year, the Russian military will receive a star wars aircraft. The Defense Ministry will begin upgrading the five IL-22M11.
    Initially, these machines, commissioned in the early 1980s, were designed to control troops during a nuclear war.
    Now the IL-22M11 will become a multifunctional flying command post. With it, in real time, it will be possible to control ground,
    air and space groups of troops. To this end, the newest communications and control systems will be installed, because of the
    abundance of the most modern equipment, military pilots have already called the updated IL-22M11 “star wars aircraft”.


    As they told Izvestia in the Ministry of Defense, it is planned to modernize five air command posts based on the Il-22M11.
    These aircraft will be equipped with a relay node that will be integrated with ground and aerial automated control systems (ACS).
    Works are planned to be held until 2021. The total cost will exceed 1.6 billion rubles.

    The first will be upgraded IL-22M11 with a tail number RF-9441. This aircraft made its first flight in 1982.
    It will almost completely replace the electronic filling. The aircraft is equipped with a radio relay station transmitting
    and receiving information via secure communication channels in a digital format. A new communications equipment and high-tech control points will appear on board.

    Thanks to the changes, the aircraft will be compatible with all automated troop control systems, ground and air.
    This will make it possible to direct exercises directly from the aircraft, to manage disparate and interspecific
    groups during special operations. And in the event of war, to coordinate the troops of a military district or front.
