    Last time it was upgraded/touched was 1996.

    It is sensitive information as it holds encryption data. But it's just old. I mean, now they will be forced to upgrade and change codes/encyptiond but still.

    I still think it's some kind of honeypot.

    According to some sources the plane was already retired and cannibalized and some new officer didn´t know this and started the whole "scandal".

    All the same, this break-in and theft isn't good at all and hope the authorities get to the bottom of it quickly and strengthen security for high value assets. Some developments to bear in mind though (nevermind the source).

    https://www.bbc.com/russian/news-55219981

    In May 2019, Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchko said that research and development work on the modernization of air command posts based on the Il-80 and Il-82 aircraft had been completed in Russia and work had begun on the re-equipment of existing aircraft.

    In October of this year, TASS, citing its source in the aircraft industry, reported that the air command and control points were planned to be transferred from the Il-80 to the Il-96-400M.

    Oh, ok. So in other words, the aircraft in question was decommissioned and all work is being done on il-96.

    More controversies: https://english.pravda.ru/news/hotspots/145369-doomsday_plane/

    Perhaps the missing gear was removed before it got to Taganrog.
    That plane could be prepared for new gear or for modification to some other role.

    Who knows what the heck is happening. This whole thing seems to be a huge mistake of some sort.

    Anyway, this will just push for the development of the replacement.

    That's a useless plane. ICBMs need roughly 30 minutes to fly before they explode. Unless if the president is in the plane when they detect the launch, using it will be impossible because Moscow will be the first target.

    no it's not. tensions will get high well before any ICBMs r used. They may have 1-2 fueled up with crews inside 24/7 just like AD interceptors on alert on USN CVNs. Also, in civil unrest/war/terrorist attack situations it may be useful- on 9/11/01, President Bush stayed in the air for 8 hours on AF1 with poor communications.

    Nuclear strikes don't come out of the blue, and such plans would come to the ears of spies or people who just don't like the plan and want to break it, so the Russians at times of high tension would move Putin to the plane and have him flying around so he can't be targeted by long range missiles but can still issue commands and receive current information about what is happening.

    Il-96 is a better option anyway.

    Actually they come out of the blue. Ocean's blue.

    You don't have a premptive message warning you they will be launched. You just know when they are in the air flying toward you.

    So the president don't have time to go tp the airport from his bunker. Unless if he is already in the plane, it will be useless.

    FYI, the order for SSBNs will come via TACAMO plane(s) based at Tinker AFB in Oklahoma. Their increased air activity will be detected by space assets.

    Even if this plane is useless as a command post, if not given new gear, it still has many hours left & could be repurposed.

    It has never happened before so we don't know, but, normally we assume neither side will just suddenly go full retard and launch a full strike.

    You don't have a premptive message warning you they will be launched. You just know when they are in the air flying toward you.

    It is a command post aircraft that will manage things... if he is not on it and an attack is detected he will likely go to the nearest safe place and hunker down while the commands for launching will be sent via his suitcase system... the point is that whether he is on the aircraft or not it will be used to manage the fight... it will remain in the air and fly around and keep operating as long as it can making sure everything that can be launched is launched...

    They have special ICBM rockets that don't do anything except climb up high above Russia and transmit launch code signals to all Russian forces in case other communications are damaged or destroyed.

    The Il-80 and any Il-96s converted to the role will be used in the areas they are to command and control Russian forces... whether Putin is on board or not doesn't really matter... he will be in communication with them...

    So the president don't have time to go tp the airport from his bunker. Unless if he is already in the plane, it will be useless.

    He will be flown by helicopter to a nearby airfield the aircraft can operate from if it is believed there is time to do so... if not he goes to a bunker or some secret location and uses his communications equipment in the suitcase that follows him around to launch a response...

    It is most likely that escalation and tensions will lead to an attack rather than just coming without any warning.... in which case he can be moved to places where he can get to the plane when needed...

    as well as IL-82s. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRURqg7-W9A
    Unlike the presidential aircraft in the Rossiya fleet, which are essentially VIP versions of standard airliners, the Il-80 is more comprehensively protected against the effects of a nuclear detonation and is a fully integrated part of the command system of the Russian nuclear forces, War Zone reported.

    Is there any news of A-100 AWAC? It is supposed to be on par with KJ-2000 and equipped with AESA.

    This guy has some brain issues. He used the words "capabilities" and "on par" like 10 times in 20 seconds. lol1

    He is more efficient than a bot when it comes to trolling.

    Rosoboronexport is considering the possibility of supplying a long-range radar detection aircraft (AWACS) to one of the African countries, the head of the company, Alexander Mikheev, told Interfax.
    "Rosoboronexport is working on an application from a foreign customer for the supply of this aircraft to one of the African countries" - Mikheev said, answering the agency's question.
    He did not name the country of interest, as well as the modification of the aircraft that the customer intends to purchase. 

    Algeria or Egypt?

    My guess is Egypt. After all, neither the US nor NATO would ever give them the means to defend themselves against Israel or western regime change operations, so maybe an upgraded export model of the A-50?

    Russia creates a command and control aircraft in case of a nuclear war, 26.07.2021.

    In Russia, began the creation of a command and control aircraft in the event of a nuclear war.

    MOSCOW, July 26 - RIA Novosti. The creation of a command and control aircraft in the event of a nuclear war began in Voronezh on the basis of the wide-body Il-96-400M, in total, the troops will receive two such air command posts, a source in the military-industrial complex told RIA Novosti.

    "The Russian Aerospace Forces will receive two air command posts based on the Il-96-400M. One is in production," the source said.

    According to him, in the future it is not ruled out to order a third air command post.

    The project is called "Link-3S", he said.

    The aircraft's radio complex will make it possible to deliver orders to troops, including strategic aviation, mobile and silo launchers, strategic nuclear weapons carrier submarines within a radius of 6 thousand kilometers.

    These Doomsday planes will replace the existing Il-80, built on the basis of the passenger Il-86 . The flight range of the new Il-96-400M will double as compared to its predecessor.

    Such aircraft are designed to evacuate the country's top leadership and command and control troops in the event of the destruction of ground and satellite infrastructure. The aircraft have the ability to refuel in the air and are accompanied by fighters in flight.

    The United States also has Boeing 747-based flying command posts.
