Russia Releases Video Of Historic First Landing of Su-27K On Admiral Kuznetsov's Deck

A screenshot from the video

The Russian Defense Ministry’s Zvezda released a video that shows the first-ever landing of the Sukhoi Su-27K (Su-33) carrier-based jet fighter on the Admiral Kuznetsov heavy aircraft cruiser in November 1989.

The TV channel stated that the aircraft’s first landing and take-off was carried out by test pilot Viktor Pugachev. According to the channel, “complex tasks related to construction, durability, aerodynamics, control systems, navigation, weapons” were solved in the fighter’s design.

    Has SF got any news, facts and details upon the modernization and refurbishment progress status of the Russian aircraft carrying heavy cruiser? (Admiral Kuznetsov)

    What is the carriers new offensive weapon & defensive suite, (is it now capable of launching Kalibr) what has been removed?

    Be also interesting to know if the MiG-35 has a ‘K’ variant.

    • Toronto Tonto

      Its fuckin scrap man , send it to Pakistan .

      • Jacob Wohl

        even india can probably make a better carrier. I mean c’mon now, they rejected the non-stealth SU-57

        • Toronto Tonto

          Russians are not in the upper class of humanoids , they have to steal what they cannot build .

          • Justin

            i do not have a problem with what u are saying!
            However, dont u mean China? They openly steal and copy! The shame they SHOULD feel for having exact copies of Russian jets!

            Look, it was commonly known in Soviet times that both Soviets and US spied on each other! So copy and steal was the name of the game back then as there were different doctrines!

            I think Russians would agree they are not upper class! Russians themselves would believe they are middle class! its the Chinese u should be taking aim at here!

            please….. know thy enemy!
            Respect to Russians dude!
            Hate on the Chinese and the Jews! Thats what u should be doing!
            Besides, Putin and Trump are on the same team! Allies after 2020 elections! (officially)

        • Justin

          ahh the Jew is back!
          hey your last photo looked better! Now is see you are about 65kg to 70kg! I thought u said u had a good build? Do u remember when i said that Jews have poor genetics when it came to physicality? I told u that i wanna know how u look if u dont work out! Well now i know hahaha! u dont work out! u have no traps, a very weak neck and youre a kid!

          And u feel the need to put up your BIO! dude u forgot to say “Narcissist”!
          Also Trump is fucking Israel and Mossad! Didnt you know your former prime minister and head of Mossad was arrested? He was involved with Epstein’s honey pot! Dude u idiot! Why do u think Israel closed its embassies world wide? because of payroll demands? hahaha! Israel has been caught spying on every nation and has been heavily involved in Soviet activity! i mean, pedofile honey traps in order to control politicians, media and foreign policy!

          “Keep your friends close but your enemies even closer”!
          Soon u will need to decide who u love more, Trump or Israel! Because Israel is losing its 3 billion per year hand out! losing diplomatic status in every nation! Is gonna be left to the wolves in the middle east!

          You guys fucked up! You got GREEDY!
          Now u will reap the whirl wind!
          i love Trump BECAUSE HE IS FUCKING ISRAEL!

          The Wraith strikes again!

  • smertzakrov

    my belief is that carriers r a WWII anachronism—slow, easily destroyed

    • Dick Von Dast’Ard

      True, but they can still extend aviation range to areas where otherwise aviation might not be readily available to provide cover to the ballistic missile subs and fleet.

      However for the Arctic Sea region, (and possibly Pacific Ocean area of operations) I would suggest something like the Tu-160P (strategic bomber escort/ heavy interceptor) could act as a very good deterrent against long-range maritime patrol aircraft too.

      • smertzakrov

        however when they r destroyed the aerospace forces become stranded according to experts I have read

    • Harry Smith

      Carriers are good for force projection. To fight or scare low tech nations.

      • smertzakrov

        military experts I have read write the same

    • Justin

      Hasnt been proven yet!
      “Whats if’s”:
      What if the armada of defensive ships need to be destroyed FIRST before one can destroy a carrier?
      What if new tech exists that can destroy any missile (Laser or Satellite weapons)
      We’ve seen the introduction of $1 per shot lazers!

      We’ve seen anti-air missiles work at a 95% level!
      if an armada surrounds a carrier, then how does a missile destroy it when countermeasures and counter attacks can be employed against the target that fired the missile upon a carrier!

      Remember, if a carrier can be killed, then so can the battery which fired the missile! So therefore it would be one for one! So it comes down to defences too! tracking, targeting and jamming are just as important (or more important) than evasion of missile defences!

      Who is usually leading the tech?
      Who tends to invent things first?
      Who then copies (illegally and shamefully) and yet still lags behind?
      The cost of being 1 or 2 steps ahead is very high! But IT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE!
      US CARRIERS have aircraft that can carry full fuel and full offensive loads thanks to its launching system! its aircraft can carry anti missile missiles (a classified package that acts like a patriot or THAAD)
      They were the first to have airborne lasers! Lasers on ships!
      A nation that is 1 or 2 steps ahead doesnt REVEAL its systems to the world as Russia did! (By the way Russia needed to reveal those systems when they saw Hillary was running for President)
      Did the USA reveal its B2 bomber and F117 stealth fighter before they needed too? Those planes were created in the 1970’s yet were only revealed in battle in 1990!

      You dont know what the US has and thats the bottom line!
      If the enemies defences can be defended, shut down or eliminated by some new advanced weapon that has not yet been copied, then an aircraft carrier is fucking awesome! it means total air domination which ends up becoming ground domination!

      Before making these statements, u need to think WHY hundreds of PHD engineers, professors and think tank Generals have decided to keep them before wondering why your little brain decides other wise! lol

      Dont give me this MIC crap! China is making them and so too is Russia and UK and France!
      Remember, Russia has a defensive Doctrine thus no need for many carriers! USA has a world force doctrine, therefore many required!

      Everyone on this site is a wannabe General! youre probably a factory worker or at best an accountant! And u wanna make statements like this? Give me a fucking break! YOU KNOW FUCK ALL! Lets just leave it at that, shall we?

      • smertzakrov

        …ni pomiul zchlabiha….u merely display your and immaturity. US military experts admit that Russia will destroy all their carriers in 3-5 days in the event of war

        • Justin

          Well you just fucked up! Because now u have to show me them admitting it! SHOW ME THE U.S MILITARY EXPERTS SAYING THIS!

          Prove i am immature and that you are not a blatant liar!

          REMEMBER: These MUST BE U.S Military EXPERTS! Not some random morons u found on the internet!

          • smertzakrov

            one cannot prove anything to an ignorant insecure amerikan

          • Justin

            hahahhahaha

            u just said “cannot prove anything”!
            YEP :) i was right! Thats what i thought you’d say!

            Also America is 5% of the worlds population! Therefore why would your dumb ass brain assume i was American when there is a 95% chance i am not! HUH??

            Im Australian!

            So now we have more proof that u lie, make up total bullshit, have no idea what u are talking about and cannot even use basic math to assume where i am NOT FROM!

            Youre dumb! Lets just leave it at that shall we?!

        • Justin

          You still have not sent me links to these “US military experts” who claim that “US military experts admit that Russia will destroy all their carriers in 3-5 days in the event of war”!
          Why havent u sent me any links?

  • Toronto Tonto

    Its the take off I want to see HA HA HA splash lost another .

  • Jacob Wohl

    Ha! the only functioning aircraft carrier (NON NUCLEAR POWERED) in the russkie arsenal. they had to sell all their other carriers in order to prevent their economy from collapsing. Meanwhile the US Navy has 11 NUCLEAR POWERED SUPER CARRIERS :-]

    • Alex

      Russians don’t need aircraft carriers, they need weapons to sink them with and they have got those .. haha american carriers are just gigantic metal coffins, good for fighting underdeveloped countries and nothing more.

      • Toronto Tonto

        Your sweet little cartoons of the weapons you wish you had and the USA DOES have makes you just a joke .

        • Alex

          Drunk descendent of bandera immigrants, you make me laugh.

      • Toronto Tonto

        Russia IS underdeveloped , cant sell the junk su shit and the tanks are only good for stealing neighbours land .

        • Alex

          Of course ukkie, what ever you say.

    • Paul

      And still got their arse kicked in Syria. Lol

  • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

    Aaaah, the famous and highly respected Pugachov/pugachev, i salute you sir!

    One person once said: “Aircraft carriers are the tools of invaders”
