    It seems VKS has indeed serious growth plans and two squadron regiments are going to go back to three squadrons:

    I have had a sense that this would be in the works with perhaps more forward airfield deployments then presently.

    On December 8, 2021, Russian airspace control devices over the neutral waters of the Black Sea detected air targets approaching the State Border of the Russian Federation.

    To identify air targets and prevent violations of the State Border of the Russian Federation, Su-27 fighters from the air defense forces of the Southern Military District were taken into the air.

    The crews of the Russian fighters identified the aerial targets as two tactical fighters Mirage-2000 and Rafale, as well as the French Aerospace Forces C-135 tanker and escorted them over the Black Sea.

    At what range do these kind of interceptions occur ? Also I noticed the mirage 2000 was carrying what looked like Magic II IR missile, could have been MICA.

    But basically I don't think I've ever seen , or maybe its unusual, when NATO planes get close to russian border, they're never armed. This is dangerous isn't it? Why would French jets be flying near RU territory with missiles on pylons??

    This command system is called Bastion and uses data of all radar systems to monitor the situation around the border.

    Not sure if that is the same material, but the one I saw, a chief of BPLA branch on the WKS explained, that it is some sort of three sides accepted route the Turks are flying.
    Agreed by the Syrians and Russians, they are making surveillance there.

    Arsenals for hypersonic missiles will be prepared in Russia

    At military airfields in Russian regions, the preparation of infrastructure for the Kinzhal hypersonic complexes is being completed. Special facilities are designed for the maintenance and testing of hypersonic missiles. This was reported by the Izvestia newspaper.
    Sources of the publication in the Russian Ministry of Defense noted that the infrastructure for servicing hypersonic missiles is being created in the units of the Aerospace Forces (VKS), which will use the Kinzhal. In several regions of Russia, they are working on equipping arsenals for storing missiles, as well as sites for repairing, testing and servicing missiles.

    Military expert Viktor Murakhovsky noted that the Aerospace Forces units will provide storage, preparation for combat use and maintenance of missiles. He stressed that the Aerospace Forces units are also ready to deploy MiG-31K aircraft carried by the Kinzhal. Earlier, the Russian Northern Fleet reported that the Zircon hypersonic missile was successfully launched from a surface ship during tests almost ten times.

    In September, the head of the Rostec state corporation, Sergei Chemezov, said that there were no means in the world that could withstand the Kinzhal missiles. He noted that hypersonic missiles are fast and accurate.
