MiG-31BM high-altitude interceptors were involved in the operation in Ukraine


The Russian special operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine is steadily developing. At the same time, for the further fulfillment of the tasks assigned to the troops, supersonic high-altitude fighter-interceptors MiG-31BM of the Russian Aerospace Forces were involved.


This became known from the report of the TV channel "Star", whose journalist visited one of the Russian air bases. At the military facility there is now a large number of various combat aircraft: attack aircraft, fighters and bombers.

Full control over the airspace of Ukraine was established a few days ago, also thanks to these aircraft. The next flight of Su-34 fighter-bombers is getting ready for takeoff... It takes about 50 minutes from the moment of takeoff to landing. The plane returns with empty suspensions without missiles and bombs, which means that the task is completed.

- says Konstantin Isaev.

The journalist said that the aircraft of the army aviation and the Aerospace Forces are working in several directions at once, helping the advancement of Russian troops on Ukrainian territory. He specified that the world's fastest MiG-31BMs are also located at the air base. In addition, he noticed that one of them already had ammunition on the suspension. This indicates that the fighter-interceptor will soon take to the skies and set off on another combat mission.


We remind you that as of 2019, more than 250 units of various modifications of the MiG-31, including more than 100 units of the MiG-31BM, were in service with the units of the Russian Air Force and Air Defense armies, naval aviation and in storage.

    Statement on the use of the MiG-31BM, an indicator of the impossibility of using VKS aviation (attack, front, army) from the airfields of Eastern Ukraine. The use of these airfields would significantly reduce the response time of the command of the Aerospace Forces to the requests of the command posts of motorized rifle and armored units. It would increase the time spent in the air of the aircraft. It would make it possible to improve the quality of additional reconnaissance of targets before impact. This would make it possible to compensate for the shortage of UAVs of medium and heavy types in the grouping forces.

    in Western Ukraine, there are a lot of targets (warehouses, storage facilities, troop concentrations, airfields, command posts, radar stations, communication centers) for high-precision missile weapons. But these goals live a relatively calm, measured life. The positions of advanced foreign intelligence centers in this area have not been revealed. They are not subjected to constant missile attacks.

        The ground under the feet of foreign intelligence officers, foreign advisers, foreign volunteers must burn. Their place is in a concrete bunker on the territories of Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia. They should not move quietly across the territory of Ukraine. So that their coffin allowances soared many times over. This will reduce the number of volunteers. But there are no round-the-clock missile strikes against the above-mentioned targets that have been opened.

      Are you a tireless fan operator? smile
      This is an indicator of the impossibility of using the airfields of Eastern Ukraine by anyone at all. There is practically no Ukrainian aviation left there, and the deployment of Russian aviation is still problematic. If the captain obviously (to say the least) deigns to look at the map, he may be able to understand that there are still Ukrainian Armed Forces in eastern Ukraine, there are stupid fights. winked
      MiG-31s ​​are needed to intercept the remnants of Ukrainian aviation in the western part of the country. What they seem to be doing successfully. yes And you can choke on your own bile repeat

      Over the past day, fighter aircraft and air defense of the Russian Aerospace Forces shot down four Su-27 and one MiG-29 aircraft in the Zhitomir region, Su-27 and Su-25 in the Radomyshlya region, one Su-25 in the NEZHIN region

        To intercept targets, the crew of the MiG-31BM needs guidance from the ground command post, or from the onboard control center of the AWACS and U complex. Which is difficult to organize.

      and what is the combat radius of the Su-34? Before writing nonsense, I would look at the performance characteristics ...

        Su-34 is wasted resources and time. Su-30SM, it completely replaces it. Su-30SM2 is even better. It would be better if the funds spent on the Su-34 were spent on the Su-30SM2. Its titanium capsule, furnished toilet and microwave make it glow on alien radar. Like a gypsy fire in the night steppe. The Su-30SM2 can be used both as a fighter and as a front-line bomber. An example is the F-15EX.
        Su-34, as shown by seven years of experience in the Middle East, is heavy as an iron, especially with full ammunition, like a zero fighter, expensive and operationally costly to maintain. It is not the performance characteristics that are fighting, but the crews, squadron command, reconnaissance, planning, combat control. TTX is for older pre-conscripts.

    I express the cautious hope that the thirty-first will be given the task of finally blocking the channels for the delivery of weapons and mercenaries by air to the logistics centers of western Ukraine and Poland

      The MiG-31 BM was designed and built as an interceptor, not as an attack aircraft or front-line bomber. He is an interceptor against single targets. Not for maneuverable air combat. Fuselage and planes made of stainless steel, powerful engine. Refueling system.

      to block the channels for the delivery of weapons and mercenaries by air to the logistics centers of western Ukraine and Poland

      These are tasks for assault, front-line, and army aviation. For special forces units, provided that they are provided with guaranteed round-the-clock powerful air support, and safe evacuation after solving the problem. These are tasks for attack UAVs of heavy and medium type. All options require reliable continuous information. It is possible in the presence of a continuous information field.

      At present, the Aerospace Forces cannot operate from Ukrainian territory. Special forces brigades were reduced 10 years ago as a result of organizational measures. Russian UAVs are rare in the sky over the area of ​​operation. Heavy-type UAV is not in the composition of the Armed Forces. There are very few UAVs of the medium type. There are few shock UAVs Lancet, they have a small radius of action. There are far fewer A-50U complexes than required. They do not work on ground targets. We do not have a continuous information field. With undercover intelligence capable of opening the channels of NATO supplies, it is also obviously not a lot.

        Isn't the interception of transport boards with weapons and mercenaries a task for the 31st?
        The capabilities of the 31st at such distances and without entering the enemy air defense zone are ideal for this job. For ground purposes (airfields, warehouses and logistics centers) there is a "Dagger".
        The task is to block air access to certain areas of western Ukraine and logistics centers for the supply of weapons on the territory of Poland for the time being.
        After this "bye", we will have to issue ultimatums to specific "partners", or, alternatively, a new, last ultimatum to their owner

          The organizers of the delivery of weapons and mercenaries are not the most stupid people. And they probably guess about the presence of the VKS and air defense systems in the Russian Armed Forces. Destruction order
          transport aircraft over the territory of NATO countries is unlikely to risk giving up the GK VKS. Targets for the Kh-47M ammunition of the Kinzhal complex must be opened constantly. And conduct additional reconnaissance before the impact, and after the impact. To evaluate the result of the application. Probably, for such reconnaissance and additional reconnaissance, the available forces and means are not enough.

          The task is to block air access to certain areas of western Ukraine and logistics centers for the supply of weapons on the territory of Poland for the time being.

          Until our units occupy at least 50% of the Ukrainian territory, it is too early to talk about such a task.

            The logic of war requires timely moves from the participants, and does not accept their subjective self-restraints. If one of the opponents does not make a move dictated by the war, the right to move and the advantage is transferred to his opponent. With all the consequences.

              Gold words. And the practice of war shows that there are much more ill-conceived plans and hasty decisions than the NHS wants. There is a huge need for cool-headed, professional officers.

    On the issue of war.
    In my understanding, the boundary between a military operation and a war lies in the area of ​​its isolation.
    The participation of external forces in pumping weapons and militants of the internal forces is already crossing this border, creating a path for the enemy to Afghanize the conflict, turning the operation into a war, subordinating its logic to the logic of war.
    This is the Rubicon.
    Therefore, now it is important for us to form a clear barrier in this place with the need for a choice for external forces.
    And for us too

      At the current time, Russian military personnel have managed to occupy approximately 25% of the territory. It is impossible to isolate the theater of military operations for sure, due to the insufficient state of the Aerospace Forces, the Ground Forces, UAVs of all types, and the transparency of borders. A clear barrier can be tried in the presence of an overwhelming number of the local population actively cooperating with the Russian military and law enforcement agencies. This bright day is far away. Ways and methods of working with local youth of pre-conscription and military ages are not being developed. Filling up local large settlements with funds, as in Chechnya, will not work.

        The place is meant - on the time axis, and the barrier - military-political.
        We need to notify the neighboring states officially involved in deliveries:
        In view of the fact that their participation in the supply of weapons and fighters to the zone of the ongoing operation is absolutely unacceptable for us, in the future we will regard this as participation in hostilities. In this case, we warn that we will stop such deliveries by all means available to us, including military strikes on vehicles, airfields and logistics centers receiving deliveries.
        Or is it a local military operation in which no one interferes and relationships with external forces are built according to the logic of peacetime.
        Or is it a field of armed intervention by external forces, even indirectly. Then this is war, and we put aside the logic of peacetime in relation to the participants in the intervention.
        In fact, the Rubicon has been crossed. We have to catch up with the situation.
        Let them choose. We will make our choice based on the results of their choice, or lack thereof.
        The States must be kept from interfering by the threat of the use of nuclear weapons, for which we have already prepared it, and the States have already given a signal that they understood us

          Neighboring states were notified by the President last year. They made their choice, about which NATO responded to the President. We are tails, as we have been following the tail of events since 1991.
          The constant threat of the use of nuclear warheads, without real use, provokes the enemy to take more decisive steps. He knows the real situation of the Russian Armed Forces.

          In this case, we warn that we will stop such deliveries by all means available to us, including military strikes on vehicles, airfields and logistics centers receiving deliveries.

          We recently had a reduction in the Armed Forces. Including the nuclear triad. We can only manipulate nuclear weapons. For example, the forces of the KChF are so modest that they are not able to land tactical troops on their own near Odessa or other coastal cities of Ukraine.

    Washington gave the NATO countries a "green light" to supply fighter jets to Ukraine. This was stated by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken on the CBS television channel.

    It's strange how we do it. I don't understand our logic. Probably - and they can't.
    It was clear that everything was going to this. They could very clearly warn the "partners" about the reaction to this. Here we have our planes ready.
    Maybe they would not have dared to climb on the rampage.
    So, no - it was necessary to wait for their decision. Well, of course - now it's a completely different matter!
    Is it easier to force the States to play back for us?
    Or is this the decision we sought from them?

      Here we have our planes ready.

      Our aviation does not hang in the sky around the clock. Not all Buk M air defense systems were destroyed. As long as their radar is down, they won't be detected. MANPADS Strela M and Stinger will not allow for targeted bombing and the use of high-precision weapons.

    Yesterday RT reported on Washington's "green light" for the supply of aircraft, and today - on the successfully prepared decision on the "no-fly zone".
    Not otherwise - the enemy draws conclusions about our determination from our shyness and restraint in threats.
    It's time for us to understand - we are at war, trying to maintain a "peaceful appearance" is stupid and counterproductive

    I agree with many of the posts. But not with this. Time always works for the attacker, he has the initiative, he dictates operational movements and directions of strikes. Reacting to this is late by definition. Even if there is a mole in the headquarters. Intelligence now does not need to draw plans for the location of objects. It is enough to drive in a permitted area not far from it with a navigator, and transfer them to the right place. Mobile objects, yes, so you can’t detect and mark them. But the main thing is to destroy the warehouse, and then any unit will simply have no reason to move. These things, I think, are known and under control. The beginning of the operation, when it was simultaneously and precisely done, confirms.
