Russia Needs To Continue Working Towards Air Superiority: Aerospace Forces Commander

Click to see full-size image

On July 3rd, Commander-in-Chief of the Aerospace Forces Colonel General Sergei Surovikin outlined what needs to happen for Russia to be superior in the air to the US, in an interview with the Russian Ministry of Defense’s outlet Zvezda.

He spoke of the growing combat potential of the airborne forces, taking into account the arrival of new weapons, military and special equipment (including UAVs), the development of a missile attack warning system, improving the organization of combat and operational training and deployment of new formations, and improving the material and technical support of the Armed Forces.

August 1st, 2020 will mark the 5th year anniversary of the formation of the Russian Aerospace Forces from the Russian Air Force.

According to him, the composition of the armaments and military equipment of the Aerospace Forces has changed significantly over the past five years.

Since 2015, in accordance with the State Defense Order for the Aerospace Force, each year it received modern aircraft, such as the latest Su-30SM, Su-34, Su-35S aircraft and upgraded MiG-31BM aircraft, Ka-52, Mi-28N, Mi- combat helicopters 35M, Mi-8AMTSH and others. As a result, more than 20 aviation regiments were re-equipped with new equipment.

More than 550 units of new types of weapons were delivered, as well as 330 units of prototype weapons were provided for testing.

High-readiness radars of the missile attack warning system in the cities of Orsk, Barnaul, Yeniseysk, the optical complex of the space control system Pritsel, the special-purpose laser complex Peresvet, and the first Container-ZM over-the-horizon radar was commissioned.

As a result, the share of modern weapons of the aerospace forces currently exceeds 70%.

Trainings are also constantly on-going, and the training systems are also being improved, as a result of experience gained from various exercises such as Army Games and others.

Over the past five years, in connection with the deployment of modern types of weapons and military equipment to combat duty, the deployment of units in new areas of combat mission, the combat capabilities of forces on duty in the East Kazakhstan region have increased by an order of magnitude.

According to Colonel General Surovikin, at present, the state of material and technical support of the Aerospace Forces as a whole satisfies the needs the formations, military units and organizations during the conduct of daily activities.

Still, however, in 2020, it is planned to supply more than 250 units of various types of equipment (aerodrome-operational, electric and gas equipment and automotive vehicles of combined arms), more than 3,000 tons of material assets to the aerospace forces from the country’s military-industrial complex.

Currently, new types of aircraft developed by industrial enterprises, such as the Mi-28NM combat helicopter, the Mi-38T airborne transport helicopter and the fifth-generation Su-57 multi-role fighter, are undergoing state tests in the Aerospace Forces.

A new radiosystem “Niobium” is being developed for the radio engineering troops using a modern component base. The technical characteristics of the radar complex will exceed the capabilities of the Nebo-M radar complex in service in the detection range of various types of aircraft, including hypersonic ones.

Over the past six years, new runways have been built at 10 airfields, including two in the Arctic region.

To date, reconstruction work is being carried out at 25 airfields, two of which – Step and Voronezh – we plan to put into operation this year.

By 2023, it is planned to complete the reconstruction and development of infrastructure at five more airdromes (Plesetsk, Savasleika, Nagurskaya, Kyzyl and Burevestnik).

In terms of space launches, As part of the development work at the Plesetsk cosmodrome, flight tests of the Angara space rocket complex are underway, which include six launches of the Angara-A5 heavy-class launch vehicle and three launches of the Angara-1.2 light-class launch vehicle.

Currently, two qualification launches of these types of launch vehicles have been completed. Until the end of this year, the next qualification launch of the Angara-A5 heavy-class launch vehicle is planned, the preparation for which is currently being organized.

In new developments, the S-500 “Prometheus” anti-aircraft missile system is being developed by the Almaz-Antey Concern VKO Joint-Stock Company as a new generation of anti-aircraft missile systems, in which the principle of separately solving the tasks of destroying ballistic and aerodynamic targets will be applied.

He also said that as the COVID-19 pandemic is slowing down, and summer rolls around, the intensity of trainings will increase.

The list of priority tasks of combat training, first of all, includes purposeful training of command and control bodies, troops and forces, the training and material base for combat training for practical exercises of troops and forces during the strategic command-and-staff exercise “Caucasus 2020” and a series of exercises on plan commanders associations.

Secondly, the improvement of the single (individual) training of military personnel during joint combat training exercises of groupings of troops and forces, including the fulfillment of combat training tasks in various conditions.

Also among the priorities is the training of crews as part of a pair, unit (squad), squadron, aviation military unit, linked to ensuring the co-ordination of combined arms units, military units and formations.

The next priority is the preparation for the young flight crew of the test exercises in accordance with the combat training courses. The focus is also on the preparation and conduct of tactical exercises with live firing (flight tactical exercises with the use of aviation weapons) with formations and military units with the development of tactical missions by type of battle together with comprehensive support units.

In order to fulfill the priority tasks in the summer period of training in the Aerospace Forces, more than 200 exercises of various levels and more than 800 training events with various categories of military personnel were planned.

In order to create an atmosphere of competition among the airborne forces during the summer period of training, all-army and international stages of the Aviadarts 2020 flight training aerial training contest and the Falconry competition for unmanned aerial vehicle training will be held.

    200 more Su-35s and another 200 Su-57s should be enough.

    The other day someone wrote China is going to win over Jews, I have to agree with him.

    1) The end goal of the Jew (at least the way they push it), requires to shit on people all day long (even further than we’ve had already), kind of dystopia impossible to work.

    2) China, Russia, Iran, Pakistan, Venezuela, North Korea, Cuba are more than needed to dump Soros kind.

    3) Let alone the other countries going ALL ruined.

    Conclusion: China won already. Even the American people will support China over the best ally at some point, such a sewer the JewSA is going to be turned into by Jews.

    • JIMI JAMES

      The liberaks setup trump in the quagmire,trying to accuse china of every crime,yet without realising,biden has him in his pocket vying for more tolerable china policys,either way now,

      Regarding point 2, the more the merrier. There’s significant number of people in other countries that see the bullshit, but are unable to do anything about it. If the Epstein / Maxwell case ever gets known publicly (which I doubt), you can bet there will be a shift in public opinion on the US “best friend.”

    • roland

      I think your wrong, china is not fighting isreal in fact they are working together along with Russia to bring down america. China has been promoted into its position as a world superpower by isreal and the satanic gangs that control the financial system.

      • Trap Is Not Gay

        Jews are what you call “USA”.

        Jews like George Soros and Epstein in charge, nothing less nor more, you think is a country “USA”.

        To the Jew’s cannon fodder “USA” not look bad they claim everybody is a Jew, but obviously if that was true the world would be a hell like the JewSA is (and pushes everybody to engage with their insanity).

          CHINA, is a Jewish Globalist Propped up puppet nation!

      • Trap Is Not Gay

        Nothing of that happened.

        Find a Jewing Jew in China, none ever.

        Also on industries, in the 90s China had the biggest market and had a cheap labor, that is, a good deal for the USA manufacturers – nobody “sent the factories for free” to China out of thin air (that was more profitable).

          It happened!

          China is the TRUE ENEMY!
          This is because Russia has sold Aircraft to India after the border dispute with China! Russia also offering to buy India’s biggest ship building port! This means Russia is looking to develop extremely close relations to India and doing all of this AFTER the Chinese border dispute!
          Russia is showing its true hand!
          i have always said, Russia HATES China, but you dumb mother fuckers cant look further than 2 feet in front of u! u all think that China joing Russian military parades means that They love each other! youre all dumb! ALSO Russia is developing extremely close ties now with Mongolia! ASK YOURSELF WHY AND WHY NOW? Because as the US is looking to confront China in the South China sea, Russia is looking to embolden and help India and closen ties with Mongolia!

            2) Soros is not Chinese either

            The USA Jew Soros (again: from the USA – not Chinese) is yes funder of the USA based BLM, Antifa, MeToo and the like.

      “China, which is already trying to change the status quo through de facto control in East Ladakh, has now begun a territorial dispute with Russia.

      According to the Chinese resource WION , after Russian officials published a video dedicated to the celebration of the 160th anniversary of the founding of Vladivostok on Weibo, Chinese officials quickly corrected their partners, reminding them that Vladivostok was the territory of China in the 19th century.

      This is a tweet from the Russian Embassy in China, where Chinese officials write:

      “The history of Vladivostok began in 1860, when Russia built a military port there. Previously, this city was called Haishenvai. It has always been Chinese territory before Russia annexed it through the unjust Beijing Treaty.

      It should be noted that in addition to India, China is now also involved in a territorial dispute with Japan and is invading its sea territory.

      Moscow pissed Beijing off
      According to Asia Times Financial, it seems that China is very upset that its “ally” Putin is selling fighter jets to India, the contract for the supply of which was signed with the Minister of Defense of India, who attended the Victory Day parade last week.

      President Xi Jinping did not go well in 2020, and here, in addition, he received a sharp reminder of real politics when Russia expressed support for India in connection with its border conflict with China. And although Russia, India and China are members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, relations between Moscow and Delhi have deeper roots than the recent warming of relations with President Putin Xi Jinping.

      Therefore, despite the growing interdependence between Russia and China, when it comes to energy, weapons and other transactions, including negotiations to create a digital currency system, Moscow has confirmed that it supports India’s position in the Sino-Indian border dispute. To slightly sweeten the pill, Moscow expressed support for China’s new national security law in Hong Kong, but it had little effect on Beijing.

      This decision of Russia has great commercial motives, as well as, possibly, historical geostrategic ties. India buys about 60% of its weapons from Russia. Moscow and Delhi have had strong diplomatic relations since the Cold War. Both countries signed the Indo-Soviet Treaty of Peace, Friendship and Cooperation for a Strategic Partnership in 1971. This was a departure from India’s previous position, which during the Cold War followed a non-aligned policy.

      A week after the deadly clash on the Indian-Chinese border, Indian Defense Minister Rajnat Singh visited Moscow to take part in the 75th Victory Day parade on Red Square, which marked the victory of the Soviet Union over Nazi Germany in World War II. Singh said that India is going to buy as much military equipment as possible from Russia.

      According to Indian media reports, the Minister of Defense bought 33 fighters in one package: 21 MiG-29 and 12 Su-30 MKI, and also ordered the modernization of another 59 aircraft. The total amount of orders amounted to almost 2.4 billion dollars. India also approved a deal to supply the Russian S-400 missile system, which cost $ 5.4 billion. Although the contract was signed back in 2018, India was in no hurry to fulfill it, fearing US sanctions.

      In addition, according to Chinese media reports, India also bought 600 of the latest air-to-air missiles and cruise missiles in an unknown quantity. At the same time, Russia announced that it could provide India with even more weapons in a short time.

      This move by Moscow infuriated Beijing, which is not surprising: on the eve, China asked Russia not to respond to India’s requests for weapons systems, but Moscow ignored this request.

      Professor Harsh Pant from Royal Imperial College London said in an interview with Live Mint that “With this step, Russia wanted to show its independence from China, because, after the annexation of Crimea in 2014, only China recognized the legality of this step, declaring itself an older brother in exchange “.

      As a result, many Chinese news agencies began to flog over Russia. So the Jiabao Business newspaper noted that Putin has lifted Russia from its knees for 20 years, but so far Russia’s GDP is equivalent to only one Guangdong province. “What happened to Russia?” – asks Jiabao Business.

      The IMF report “Prospects for the Development of the World Economy” recently predicted that Russian GDP will fall by 6.6% this year, so by the end of 2020, Guangdong will even surpass Russia in terms of GDP.

      Why does Russia want to sell weapons? According to the latest data, Russian oil reserves are in eighth place in the world, amounting to 80,000 million barrels. Rich oil resources brought Russia a steady stream of profits, but the recent fall in oil prices, for which Moscow was partially responsible, hit the country hard. Russia, which lives earning money lying on the couch, has completely turned into a typical commodity country.

      The country’s second problem is unthinkable corruption, and even Putin admits that the efficiency of industrial production in Russia is lower than that of Western countries. Therefore Jiabao Business further recommends, before meddling in other people’s border disputes, Moscow is necessary to modernize its industrial structure, punish bribe takers and improve international relations.”

  • Kamīrusan

    SU-57 Is pretty jet but i highly doubt Russia is able to mass produce it in time, they simply don’t have the capacity or production power the US has, this might change when the new engine is ready though i hope i’m wrong

    • Harry Smith

      Neither USA has enough capacity to produce F35. That’s why it is produced together by a number of NATO countries. USA and the West transferred most of its production power to China.

      • Swift Laggard II

        strange comment. you acknowledge that the us and partners have the ability to produce the f35 whilst russia will have a problem funding enough of the su57. so how is China relevant here? us saw they needed partners and went ahead to solve the problem – i fail to see how your comment is relevant

        • Zarathustra

          Russia doesn’t have trouble with funding or producing the Su-57, it’s undergoing its last phases of testing. Furthermore they already have air defense radars (tracking and target acquisition) and surface-to-air missile systems that can detect and destroy stealth aircraft, there’s no point in producing more than a few hundred Su-57s until 2040.

          • Swift Laggard II

            they forgot Stalin’s maxim that quantity has a quality of it’s own. Or was it Zhukov who said it?

        • Harry Smith

          You said that USA has capacity and industrial power. I answered you that USA can’t produce F35 alone. Logically, that means the USA has not enough capacity neither industrial power if they need help from a dozen of other countries.

        • Harry Smith

          Yeah. And also they have Superwoman and Spider-Man!

      • Zarathustra

        At the moment they currently have a larger capacity to produce more F-35s than Russia has to produce Su-57s, they have a greater manufacturing capacity than Russian Federation in general despite outsourcing most of their manufacturing to China.

        • Harry Smith

          I didn’t said that USA capacity is low or equal to the Russia’s. But it is evident that USA has no capacity to produce f35 alone. Welcome to the postindustrial reality.

  • Swift Laggard II

    Russia is unable to form meaningful partnerships with it’s erstwhile friends. Iran Venezuela Algeria Syria Kazakhstan South Africa Cuba Belarus India (especially) – all these are nations that they could have formed a broad based coalition with to manufacture advanced weapons like the su57 – spread out the cost and obtain economies of scale just as the west is doing with it’s stealth fighter, but russia is very short of strategic thinking

    • roland

      The Russians don’t want to form a broad base coalition with those countries. Because they are in a coalition with isreal and china.

      • kamalashila

        since when?

        • roland

          Well Russia and isreal have been close since isreals creation. the isreali Chinese relationship goes back about 25 years when they signed an economic cooperation with isreal. and now they seem to be ganging up on America.

      U.S. cant sincs their nazi toyboy scientists from.operation paperclip died out in the 70s.
      The Flop-35 is a heavily modified version of the Yak-141, most the job was done by British BAE Systems.
      Lockheed bought the blueprints from Russia in 1993 for $400million.
      So your comment was nothing but projecting…at an autistic level I may add…

        SCO and AIIB are meaningless in this context – what defense projects have they funded? They are just talking shops. Notice I left out China from my list of Russian friends – China is a fair weather friend to Russia with it’s own plan for global hegemony. Joint manufacture of weapons with Russia is not part of that plan

        • Lone Ranger

          Russia doesn’t need anybody to develop weapons.
          They make the best.
          Why are they meaningless…?
          They are the backbone to counter U.S. hegemony both militarily and financially.
          Most of the EU countries already joined AIIB.
          NATO countries and I.S. allies like Turkey, Greece, Saudis are buying Russian weapons.
          Another sign of the crumbling U.S. Empire.

    I would of thought the number one priority would be to gain parity with PLAAF’s munitions like the PL-10/ PL-15 and PL-21 missiles.

    Air superiority and Russia???

    Sorry, at all respect, this is oxymoron. Russia with 25 su-57 is nothing, not superioroty. Russia has 400 really modern aircrafts, usa 1300, NATO 2500. So boyos, be realistic.

    • Dick Von Dast’Ard

      Russia has more heavy-weight fighters than the USA, which has most of it’s air force made up of light-weight F-16’s.

      • kamalashila

        old machines

        • Dick Von Dast’Ard

          More capable than the U.S. machines and in many cases newer.
          Su-30SM and Su-35S for example.
          MiG-31BM Foxhound probably being the best dedicated interceptor in the world.

          • kamalashila

            mig-31 is shit, su-35 belongs to 400 modern as i wrote.

          • Dick Von Dast’Ard

            I suspect you have little grasp of anything other than comic books then.

    • Zarathustra

      They also have surface-to-air missiles like S-400 and Buk-M3.

      • kamalashila

        buk is nothing, s-400 no one was tested at war. moreover, russia gas less good missiles than NATO planes. what now?

    • Lone Ranger

      Russia has air superiority.
      Most thd Russian airfleet is state if the art around 1800 jets.
      Plus a few thousend layered state of the art SAM launchers along with the best ground based Radar systems.
      Better luck next time…

      • kamalashila

        1800 jets, 400 modern. usa has 3x more jets, 5x more modern. the rest of nato same amount. plus Au, NZ, SKorea, Japan. look at the length of russian border. russia needs 10 000modern jets to get air superiority. eussia was able t send in syria 100 planes. usa in irak 4-500. that is big difference. russia still has no equivalent to f-22, b-2.

        • Lone Ranger

          Wrong.

        • Lone Ranger

          75% of the Russian Aerospace Forces have been upgraded.
          U.S. Air Force is at 58%.
          Many U.S. jets arent combat ready.
          Like the Craptor fleet for example.
          Being grounded and or cannibalized.

        • Lone Ranger

          Russia has thousends of SAM launchers in a layered network with the best ground based radars.
          Only the U.S. has force projection capebilities, the rest are a joke.
          Remember Vietnam…

        • Lone Ranger

          Su-57 is better. By far.
          Tu-160 is superior to the B-2.
          Russian jets need less maintenance
          Turnaround time is much shorter.

    • You can call me Al

      Russia needs to get there at together, they have superiority across the board but do FA.

      • kamalashila

        what is FA?

        • You can call me Al

          Hmmm, not sure now. Oh I know “Fuck All”.

    America have also been doing works towards air superiority with our global airospace and our space command centres in the lower thermosphere.

    We have also made deployment of units in new global areas of combat mission, the combat capabilities of forces on duty in the Eastern region have also increased by an order of magnitude due to our global obligations.

    America is also ready to show off our exceptional superiority!

  • SOF

    “According to Jane’s Information Group, with the merging of the Russian Air Force and the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces, the new Russian Aerospace Forces consist of three
    sub-branches:

    -Air Force
    -Missile Defence Forces
    -Space Forces ” – Wikipedia

    Technically the air above us extends to space, its possible in future there will be craft that can go between Low Earth Orbit, the Karman Line and the current combat ceiling of conventional jets. When that happens Russia’s management system of putting ‘Space Forces’ under the Air Force will be a better one long term than the US method of creating an entirely new branch.
