Defense Minister write a report on the significant shortcomings of the model set adopted in 2006
According to the results of six years of operation of the Su-34, the Commission and the Department of the Air Force Main Command weapons produced at the conclusion of the Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu, indicating that all the troops raised in the Su-34 have significant drawbacks hindering their present use in combat.
As told «Izvestia» in the military, currently in the Air Force 16 such machines and each — their personal goals.
— By the end of year report will be oriented to the defense minister and he must decide. In June this year, the Ministry of Defense has already avenged by the arbitral tribunal with the Novosibirsk aviation plant Chkalov more than 80 million rubles penalty for undelivered machines. If Novosibirsk continue to work this way, the litigation will have to repeat, — explained the «News» Defense Ministry spokesman, who participated in the work of the commission.
The Su-34 is prirekaniya have crews who are obliged to fight with each flight deficiencies.
— The main difficulties of the aircraft — the radar sighting and navigation system. Constantly some failures, while often they occur during a training flight. Come on bombing or launches rockets, and you aiming equipment sour. Turn around and go home — lamented the «Izvestia» Su-34 pilot.
According to him, the radar sighting equipment and denied not only because of failures in the software, and as a result of technical defects. In this case it is necessary to deduce the machine out of service, put it to the service to correct the problem. With all this breaks programm training.
Many problems the new Su-34 ground staff brings.
— In general the Su-34 is difficult to name the serial machine. Any of the 16 sides has their own personal differences. For example, electronic engines auxiliary systems that are located on one side of the board, then another, and according to the technical documentation, they generally need to be in 3rd place, — explained the «Izvestia» officer-cum-operational service Air Force.
Factory assembly and lame: bad solder contacts, not attuned to the end of some nodes.
— The most problematic machines including two first series, which since 2006 are in the 4th Combat Center implementation in Lipetsk. Their nothing works, and are at the airport for beauty — said, «Izvestia» Air Force officer Glavkomat familiar with the situation.
According to him, the best side in the past three different board last summer, aimed at an air base in Voronezh «Baltimore».
The representative of the military-industrial complex, involved in work on the Su-34, was taken aback military claims. According to him, the beginning of mass production and adoption of at least some of the aircraft is always accompanied by technical neuvvyazkami.
— This is referred to as «teething problems», the drawings and the machine was experienced as one, and serial production difficulties arise. Have to enter the configuration in the design, change the technology. Military time must inform emerging dilemmas defects, but at the moment Air Force technicians a very small level of training. They just do not understand how the system half as true programming equipment. Most of the failures and the radar sighting system occurs due to mishandling by the troops. Well, the level of training of pilots such as small — explained the representative of the defense.
In the Novosibirsk Aviation Production Association named after VP Chkalov said that comment work on the Su-34 will be only with written permission of JSC «Sukhoi KB behalf.» Official dealer of «Sukhoi» Sergei Meshcheryakov also declined to comment, explaining that all the information on the Su-34 is hidden.
Previous military pilot, editor of the online portal «world and we» Yuri explained Garnovskii «Izvestia» that the Su-34 — a difficult plane, requiring infrastructure, in other words a new airfield security, new communication and navigation, and this just in Russian Air Force is out and is unlikely to appear in the not to distant future.
Independent military expert, one of the creators of the book «The New Russian Army» Anton Lavrov told «Izvestia» that no matter what modern military equipment in the world is taken unfinished, this is the reality.
— Su-34 we certainly needed, it is the only modern Russian bomber shock. Failure sighting and navigation equipment to the latest technology — is not such a rare phenomenon — said Lavrov.
According to the views of professional, industry and army should work more closely, but the problem of defense and military cooperation exists not only in Russia, and in other countries.
