Re: Aero India 2003 - News & Reports

No, no bull! The FBW system was disabled (i.e. manual override) for the Cobra manoeuver. So, the IAF guy is right, the Cobra was performed without a computer in the loop. Mohan Raju: the alpha/AOA delimiter is disabled; the system is not strictly mechanical. In order to obtain its high level of man...

Re: Aero India 2003 - News & Reports

The cobra performed by them was on machines that were much lighter and without fly-by-wire control.

Pure bull! Cobra was performed with an analog FBW system.

Re: Sensor capabilities of IAF aircraft

The point is not whether the Soviet AF would want it,but whether the APG65 did far more than what the datalinked sensor n/w could do in conjunction with the NO19. As far as radar capability, the Mathias Rust episode shows the high rate of false returns that plagued Soviet radar designs. A MiG-23 pi...

Re: Sensor capabilities of IAF aircraft

So ?Both sides would target each others centralized decision making apparatus. Yes, but if a fighter radar has its own onboard processing, it is far less reliant on other layers. And thereby the better bet when the network goes down. Knocking off the Russian GCI layer would be no easy task - given ...

Re: Sensor capabilities of IAF aircraft

If one mans account is to be believed,hell,we could buy everything Suvorov said It's interesting to note that the N-019 did evolve with several features found in the APG-65 design. I think that if you were with the Soviet AF you'd want it, after experiencing the limiting N-019E. The Old Myech radar...

Re: Sensor capabilities of IAF aircraft

Regarding the NO19..why *would* it need processing?The mech and the NO19 would always operate with BIryuza and Lazur around.Feeing data in and providing TWS information. I suspect that someone in the VVS was clever enough to see that the Soviet system was heavily defense-oriented and reliant on rel...

Re: Sensor capabilities of IAF aircraft

The concept was not as much tied to weak computing-a pure technical consideration which they could have overcome-as much as to their concept of the "A/c" being a directed weapon.And as things went,they felt that the direction could be done by the GCI itself,having better SA through the means at the...

Re: Sensor capabilities of IAF aircraft

Yes,but the Russians dont lack anything either in the mathematics or say "fast fourier transforms arena" themselves.Any chap who's read the Greek and Latin the Russians have done reams on,during his engineering could testify to that.Even further back,there was Irudhov.(sp..?) No doubt that Russian ...

Re: Sensor capabilities of IAF aircraft

The russians wouldnt have copied the APG65!They were too busy trying to build a common range of systems based on the Mech(or Myech) NOO1 Cassegrain antenna radar on the Su27.It itself was a bit disappointing,but still! Not if Alexander Velovich (a former tech specialist/programmer at Mikoyan) would...

Re: Sensor capabilities of IAF aircraft

So we really cant say,that "xyz" tech transferred via espionage and that is on "nvx" weapons system. Wouldn't imply that... What I'm saying is that the Soviets had the technology all along. In the past, their very poor computing might have been a limiting performance, but today - given their abilit...

Re: Sensor capabilities of IAF aircraft

The IAF Su-30MKI's N011M can detect 15, track 6 and engage 4 aerial targets. It should be more like track 15 targets in the track alone mode. In the TWS mode, the number of tracked targets would reduce of course, though the number might be 8 targets rather than just 6 targets. Phazotron,in its info...

Re: Sensor capabilities of IAF aircraft

Apparently,the computing power(lack)was a performance limitation affecting/hampering russian radars. The performance of the TZ-100 computer on the MIG-29 Fulcrum A's N-019E radar was rated at just 250,000 operations per second. The radar's MTBF was also probably a tenth as the improved variants of ...

Re: Sensor capabilities of IAF aircraft

The Su-30MKI will carry NIIR's N011M X-band Passed Aray Radar with 140km max detection range. It can detect 15 targets, track six of them and engage four. The passive phased array system operates on X and L band (NATO D & I bands). The tracking performance mentioned is also way too low. There a...
