Russia showed the world the capabilities of its military transport aircraft


Recently, military transport aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out several lightning-fast humanitarian operations to transfer medical aid to other countries of the world. The delivery of goods to Italy, the United States and Serbia was entrusted not to civil aviation, but to the BTA, commanded by Lieutenant General Vladimir Benediktov.


Former long-range aviation commander (1997–2003), member of the Public Council under the Ministry of Defense, Lieutenant General Mikhail Oparin, commented "MK" BTA flights to specified countries.

Short-term air operations to deliver medical supplies to different parts of the world indicate that military transport aircraft are on high alert

- said Oparin.

The general clarified that the combat readiness consists of the readiness to fulfill the tasks of flight crews, the readiness of the engineering and technical personnel for servicing aviation equipment, as well as the serviceability of the fleet itself. He emphasized that the level of training of BTA personnel is at a high level.

The presidents agreed, and in a day or two they planned and carried out a large-scale operation to transport goods and specialists. Relatively speaking, we set a task tonight, and in the morning or even at night the planes flew away

- explained Oparin.

According to the retired military, this says a lot. First of all, about the level of organization and leadership. Planning such flights, coordinating flight routes in foreign airspace is not an easy task.

At the same time, the general offered to think about raising the status of the BTA, since in recent years Russian aviation began to fly intensively to other countries. Previously, the BTA was "as an operational-strategic association", and now - "as an operational-tactical association." He compared this to "as if the management of a large plant were reduced to the states of one workshop." In this case, before the rank of commander of the BTA was Colonel General, now - Lieutenant General.

      You? That would be immediately said. You weren’t even offended. You can write anything you want, for health reasons from your own words.

      Excuse me, are you from Ukraine? If yes, then you have false media about Russia. In the world, only three states determine the policy - the USA, China, Russia! Sadness.

      So Russia is the successor of the USSR. In your opinion, it was necessary to cut all the Soviet aircraft and begin to ride in carts until we create new aircraft?

        Just undercut. We realized that there really wasn’t a cart, or something else. But better late than not at all.

            All that is is the legacy of a huge country, which by some miracle did not manage to be completely squandered, then convulsively caught on, swept over and for about 10-12 years they have been trying to resuscitate.

    Yes please. Serially produced in Russia. At the moment, the IL-76MD-90A can be used to transport sick and wounded people and to extinguish local fires. Maximum payload increased to 60 tons. The maximum take-off weight of the aircraft brought to 210 tons. The engines are also Russian PS-90A-76. Also, Russian transport aircraft include IL-96-400T, IL-112V / T, IL-114-300. For your information, in Russia in Ulyanovsk, the An-124 was mass-produced until 2004, so this is also a Russian transport aircraft, in fact.
    And it’s very strange when someone refuses to consider Russian transport aircraft armed with Russia. This is the doctor needs such instances. I hope this is not another dill. And then you have to upset him. After all, Ukrainian military aircraft, like helicopters, do not exist in nature. They fly on the Russian Su-27, MiG-29, MU1 / MU2, Mi-24, Mi-8 and are still trying to imagine something of themselves. Like, it was produced not in the RSFSR, but in the USSR.

      That Russia ... killed its AVIATION ... in particular the GA, survived a bit, something for 30 years, so the decoration around the Su-27 and MiG 29.
      And if the achievements were realized ... so those are SOVIET!
      It is unfortunate that both Russian and Ukrainian ... although one without the other is difficult. Soon they will buy the Chinese ... hmm ... they are cheaper. Chinese consumer goods, and even the auto industry ... no longer disdain.
      Impotence in science, production ... on the face. recourse

        That Russia ... killed its AVIATION ...

        The French magazine Capital drew attention to the video of flights of the fifth-generation Russian aviation complex Su-57, which the Ministry of Defense published on its YouTube channel at the end of March.

        On shots, pilots of the Aerospace Forces work out the figures of single and group aerobatics, flights at low and extremely low altitudes. In addition, the pilots performed elements of close air combat using super-maneuverable Su-57 modes.

        According to the author of the material, the Russian VKS tested the fighter for strength and showed what it was capable of.

        According to him, in this video, the “pearl of Russian aviation" flies at a very high speed and extreme low altitude, demonstrates vertical climb and "barrels", and also uses the enemy’s weapons.

        “With two Russian turbojet engines, the Su-57 has a top speed of about 2600 kilometers per hour, and a climb speed of 21 kilometers per minute,” Capital writes.

      I applaud the "patreots" of your president. It’s easy to set and put cons - easy! No problem. Bravo and - IT'S VICTORY! To think - it hurts, especially to create - REALLY! more complicated, but in the current country where THREE were stolen during the construction of the launch site total amount - we can.
      And - 30 years to make ... something, according to the SOVIET patterns - by SOVIET engineers and scientists ... and never "give birth" to the same Su-57 in a series! They could not build a single Tu-160 or Tu-22! only "modernization is impotence. ...

      Do not talk nonsense. What exactly do you have from Poland in our army, if you are so informed? The equipment will undergo fine-tuning, state testing and go into series. Not so fast.

        Project 775 large landing ships from the city of Gdansk, we have 16 of them. All Syrian express drag! Ivan Gren in a single copy. Another build! Well, and the IL-76 aircraft ordered 39 at the request of V.V. On October 5.10.2012, 2020, the contract will be built by 3, like, but, unfortunately, only 50. But the Commander-in-Chief Zelin stated that the T-2013 will be experienced in 2015, and the serial in 2010 will be noooo. There are open sources Wikipedia Russian Air Force and rearmament. I remember the first flight of the aircraft in XNUMX. Once again I want a good army, but I don’t believe promises.

    It can be seen that this is scary. The Italians thought they were throwing green men to them. By the way, how are the Serbs there, they also threw something and everything calmed down, how are you?

    On the site of the official petitions here, a demand appeared to tell Italians about real Russian doctors who allegedly came to fight with coronovirus. One of the authors of this requirement asks:

    We ask two basic questions that concern many Italians. The first is why instead of civilian doctors, the Russian military flew into the country. It is no secret that 15 people arrived on 104 planes, of which only 35 were doctors (only two of them were civilians) and 13 translators. And the rest of the people - who is this? During the week of their “work” in our country, we saw only a two-hour disinfection of the nursing home in Bergamo and that’s all. The second question - we ask you to respond to threats from la stampa reporters.

    We are waiting for the appearance of Putin's doctors in Germany.
