Yak-130 of the RuAF crashed, both pilots ejected.

April 12, 2018, AEX.RU - The Yak-130 aircraft crashed in the Voronezh region during a planned training flight, both pilots were ejected, RIA Novosti reported citing the department of information and mass communications of the Russian Defense Ministry.

"On April 12, 2018, at about 9:40 am during a scheduled training flight, an aircraft Yak-130 of the training air base of the Krasnodar Higher Aviation School of Pilots in the cities of Borisoglebsk (Voronezh Region) crashed," the report said.

It is noted that the commander of the crew reported on the occurrence of a technical malfunction of one of the machine's aggregates, which prevents the continuation of the flight. In turn, the flight director gave a command to bailout.

"Both the pilot, the instructor and the cadet, safely ejected, landed and independently contacted the airfield, their lives and health are not threatened.

[quote]Understanding Sacrificial Anodes on Ships
By Anish | In: Marine Technology | Last Updated on December 26, 2017

Corrosion is one of the greatest enemies of the ship and its machinery. It is also the toughest enemy to fight against for the people working on the ship. Iron is one substance which is used in abundance on the ship. From the main body of the ship to the smallest equipment used in operations, iron makes its presence felt in almost every type of equipment used on board the ship.

A ship is continuously in contact with water and moisture-laden winds which makes it highly susceptible to corrosion. The outer body of the ship (mainly hull) is continuously in contact with water, making it extremely vulnerable to corrosion. It is for this reason sacrificial anodes are used to protect the parent material./quote]

A good 2-part analysis of Russia's latest KH-32 anti-ship missile launched from Backfires, and the ability of the USN's Std-6 variant of the principal SAM aboard USN warships.

http://www.navyrecognition.com/index.ph ... art-2.html
quote]
It means a group of two cruisers or destroyers is incapable of repelling a strike from two Tu-22M3 bombers carrying two Kh-32 missiles each even in favorable conditions. At least one warship would be damaged with a 0.6-0.7 probability. A strike by a wing of three aircraft with six Kh-32 will definitely destroy both warships.

A salvo of 24 Kh-32 at an aircraft-carrying force would be fatal. The probability to destroy or sink an aircraft carrier with two-three escort ships is 0.75-0.85. Russian aircraft will attack from outside the operational zone of adversary seaborne fighter jets. It means a strike by 12 Tu-22M3 with two missiles each will be sufficient to destroy an aircraft-carrying force with a high probability.

A group of two-three aircraft carriers can be destroyed by a strike of two regiments of Tu-22M3 with 72 Kh-32. They can fire from a distance of two-three thousand kilometers from the Russian coast, i.e. long before the aircraft-carrying force arrives at the distance of seaborne aircraft engagement.

I don't see any section where the author attempts to list sources for his performance assumptions, nor do I see anything about who the author is. That said, the SM6, in the context of the USN concept of operations, is used primarily against shooters and and against anti-ship missiles during their cruise phase of flight i.e. at ranges in excess of 250-300 km. Its long range envelope is specific to aircraft, and for certain ballistic and cruise missiles. Also, it is not a replacement missile in the sense that it does not replace any existing interceptor. It just adds another option over and above ESSM and SM2 (which is still he primary AAW missile). There will be instances where it isn't even used against particular threats with engagements done at much shorter ranges for many reasons. The current USN VLS is architecture is designed to engage saturated attacks at 30-60 kms from ship (for every one SM2 or SM6 that is added, they are giving the option of carrying 4 ESSMs instead).

As the threat system approaches closer to the ship, this task is handed to the ESSM (blk. II in the future), then to SeaRAM (which has demonstrated capability to down Mach 3+ sea skimmer targets), SEWIP Block 3, and guns. They are very rapidly working on MAD-FIRES demonstrations as well which would give them the ability to launch miniature guided missiles/projectiles form 40mm guns to target challenging cruise missiles. Also, a 400+km variant of SM6 has been approved by the USN and will enter development shortly, to be fielded in the early-mid 2020s alongside the new active ESSM and Active SM2. As I pointed out a few months back, some years ago the USN requested that a new "high-diver" mode be added to the GQM-163, allowing it to climb higher than its then highest altitude of 52,000 feet and to exceed speeds of Mach 4 at that altitude. The near vertical dive capability has now been used to test interceptors or sensor performance more than 13 times over the last few years.

But yeah, overall defending a ship is tough business so offense and defense need to go hand in hand if you are to operate in high threat regions. Defenses alone won't save the day.

From AW&ST. Admiral Kuz goes into refit and will remain there till 2021. 420 sorties during the 2 month deployment for attacking Syrian targets.

Russian Navy Left Without Aircraft Carrier Until 2021
Aerospace Daily & Defense Report Apr 13, 2018
Maxim Pyadushkin

MOSCOW—The Russian Navy will not be able to quickly mobilize its air strike capabilities in the Mediterranean for the next few years, as its only aircraft carrier is going in for repairs.

The Admiral Kuznetzov carrier will return to service in 2021, the Russian defense ministry reported April 13, quoting Deputy Minister Yury Borisov.


“The carrier will undergo maintenance—the replacement of all boilers and equipment,” he explained. The repair will take place at Murmansk repair yard.

The Admiral Kuznetzov was taken into service in 1991 and is based with Russia’s North fleet. It has a displacement of 55,000 tons and is powered by four steam turbines of 50,000 hp each. It has eight boilers and four propellers that can speed it up to 29 kt.

According to the military, the Admiral Kuznetsov can carry 12 Sukhoi Su-33 fighters and 24 Kamov Ka-27 antisubmarine helicopters. But during its first combat deployment near the Syrian coast from November 2016 to February 2017, its air wing also included MiG-29K fighters. One of them crashed during landing in November 2016. One Su-33 also was lost at landing in December of the same year.

The defense ministry reported that during the two-month mission, aircraft from the Admiral Kuznetsov made 420 combat sorties against international terrorists and hit more than 1,200 targets in Syrian territory.
