MIG-31 - a live attraction for space tourists
Mig-31 Foxhound or MиГ-31 has become super famous in Sweden for a while in the early 2000s in connection with the advertising campaign of a Russian tourist company which marketed a "trip to space" for about 100 000 from an air base in northern Russia. These attack aircraft of generation 4 is said to be near the "space" (20 km upwards from the ground) and even bombing from there. Russia has 286 planes of this type, and 100 are in reserve.

Prototypes of Russian generation 5 aircraf were is use already in the 80s
Generation five flyglan or a so-called Fifth-Generation Advanced Fighter Jet is available in different versions in Russia. The first test flight of the PAK FA or Firefox as it is now called in NATO has already taken place in 2010 and the aircraft is in service after 2013. It is said that the Russian generation five aircraft planned along with India and will be produced in Brazil. The Indian company Hindustan Aeronautics stands for electronics in PAK FA/T-50 and Russians for the hardware itself.
The first delivery is in the current situation of about 250 jets that India and the 50 pieces that Russia plans to purchase for their air forces. That is, both Russians and Indians should get their PAK FA/T-50 while Americans commit get F-35. The Indian version is equipped with seating for two pilots unlike the Russian and will be called FGFA.
The Russian PAK - FA or Indian FGFA is the Russian-Indian joint venture project
Here you can see the official video of the test flight January 29, 2010 .
The plane will be called either PAK FA or T-50 also "изделие 701" / "product 701". More can be read on the company website, ie the company that built fighter, the Sukhoi. Good official information on Russian weapons systems, including slide shows are also available on the Russian miliärdepartamentets website which is by the way the English language.
There is not much information about the PAK FA/T-50's technical data but according to the Russian-language Internet forums, there will be about velocity of about 2600 km / hour and the ability to reach the distance of 5500 km without refueling. The runway for PAK FA/T-50 needed no further than 300-400 m according to these sources. It is only speculation, and it is not even certain that the aircraft into service in the first place.
It also costs huge sums to develop the technology and as the U.S. has already stopped production of the F-22 just because of the economics. Generation 5 aircraft will not keep up with the development when future attacks are probably directly from space, ie from satellites with laser alto missiles. The satellites are constantly in the potential targets and it is not about protecting themselves against these kinds of attacks.
That this kind of aircraft costs more than what they taste, they do not offer any breakthrough compared to previous generations. Analysts predict that future Air Force will rather be equipped with vehicles of type Boeing X-37 unmanned spacecraft Rather than traditional aircraft
The U.S. F-22 Raptor is "father" for all aircraft of this type
It is also interesting to know that as China is not the classification of airplanes as Russia and the United States uses as both F-22 and PAK FA are jets of four generations of the Chinese standards. It will be exciting to see what the Chinese will eventually. China's neighbor Japan is partly to develop their own generation 5 aircraft ATD-X Shinshin.

J-20 Stealth Fighter and the ATD-X Shinshin in action
The Chinese J-XX fighter, JX or XXJ 5th generation aircraft, the official J-20 (images) and ATD-X Shinshin is China's and Japan's answer to the F-22 and PAK-FA. It would have been exciting to observe all these four UFO-like aircraft at an air show to compete against each other, but never in combat. The Asians are not in service until about 2018-2020 according to Internet sources. Note that the Japanese fighter pics are no photos but 3D images.
ATD-X is the Asian beauty and the future concurrent for Russian PAK FA
Advantage Technology Demonstrator X 心神 is the name for the new Japanese Stealth Fighter which will schedulded in 2014. Relations between Russia and Japan are hindered primarily by the long-running Kuril Islands dispute. This two countries have faught with each other two times under XX century. Maybe ATD-X will meet PAK FA in a battle in the future?
Tu-160, the world's largest bombers and Tu-95 were projectet for the World War III
Strategic bombers Tu-160 and Tu-95 is a carrier of nuclear bombs / missiles. Americans have the equivalent of the Tu-95 which is their felt the B-52. Tu-160 lacks in turn motvarigheter the other defense. It is the world's largest bomber. There are between 10-20 Tu-160 of the Russian nuclear forces. Company AOA "Tupolev" serving and manufacture these aircraft are, however, a deep crisis and it is hardly likely that we will so something new from Tupolev.
Ka-52 and Mi-28 Havoc attack helicopters for precision warfare
Ka-52 is the future attack helicopter that will be used against such rebels in the mountains as well as a command helicopter. Even if the Mi-28 HAVOC similar Ka-52 are no competitors when the Mi-28 is designed to be used against heavily armed market forces such as combat vehicles and even infantry.

The export variant called Mi-17. All models can have 6 tons of cargo on board or 25-27 fully equipped soldiers.
Pzrk Igla S-18 Grouse is a Russian "Stinger". On this picture are soldiers from the South Korea
Pzrk "Igla" «Игла», S-18 Grouse (NATO classification) is equivalent to the U.S. "Stinger" - man-portable infrared homingsurface-to-air missile that can reach the aircraft at about 5000 m altitude. In the picture above you can see two South Korean soldiers train with one of the missile modifications. Igla and similar weapons is best known for its psychological effects from the movies. Soldiers out that it is difficult to meet with such a missile as well as today's fighter pilots are good at detecting them early. One of the proofs is the war in Lybien the defense which had a large supply of these weapons (between 600 to 1500 pcs) without any success during the NATO intervention.
Strela anti aircraft missle family
There are also competitors of Igla and Strela are family, Стрела in Russian. Both Stinger, Strela and Igla is wanted by most countries' security officers because of their obvious danger to the civilian air traffic in case they fall into the hands of terrorists. At least 50 such weapons disappeared according to media during Lybien conflict completely untraceable.
S-300 and S-400 are Russian main anti-aircraft weapons
When Strela and Igla insufficient made use of S-300 and S-400. They look virtually the same, Russia's main anti-aircraft missiles, and corresponds to the U.S. anti-missile system Patriot. S-300 can shoot down both manned and unmanned aircraft at a distance of no more than 300 km. S-400 is a new generation of anti-aircraft guns have been put into service in 2007 and can act against nuclear missiles and other flying objects in radiet of 400 km.
S-500 is also underway and it is range of 600 km also becomes much smaller than their predecessors to fit on such vessels. There are also modifications as are suited to vessels. Buy Russian weapons can be found through Russian arms monopoly Rosoboronexport. Monopoly sells arms to countries not subject to UN sanctions. You may not sell nuclear weapons or their means of delivery.
Iskander SS-26 Stone - Russian surface missle
Iskander SS-26 Stone is one of the newest Russian precision weapons systems. It was announced on missile system back in 1996, and the weapon was taken into use by the Russian military in 2006. SS-26 is available in two modifications - one for imports SCOPE of 50-280 km and one for the use of their military with sufficient willows of 500 km. The missiles can be controlled both by GPS and GLONASS. Already in 2010 placed British Flinders in Kaukas where the probability of armed conflict is greatest. While it is not attached to use such weapons as SS-26, but unmanned aircraft that can give the true picture of the battlefield in real time. GPS helps to achieve solid objects, such as bridges and buildings. In the case of moving objects needed UAV - unmanned aerial battle plan. .
Unmanned aircraft are the Russian Armed Forces officially recognized weak point
Soviet Union was a country in the global level of UAVs. Only in the 1980s made it 950 Tu-143 (similar to the Tu-243, see picture above) used frequently by their own military and sold for export. Both Tu-143 Tu-243 is pushed from a Topol-M similar vehicle and can conduct reconnaissance on the 360 km distance. The Russian unmanned aircraft was progressive 20 years ago, but today many of these are not competitive anymore.
If you compare the U.S. Predator with Tu-243 that was introduced in 1999 to weigh "the Russians" 1600 kg and can accommodate 130 kg cargo / bomb load when his American colleague weighs only 1000 kg and can be loaded with 340 kg. U.S. Airforce and U.S. Navy has thousands of UAVs at various levels as well as Russia has an insignificant number of Tu-243. This means that the Russian military has decided to purchase the Israeli IAI Heron.
However, there are also successful Russian Copies of these weapons systems such as Mi-34 BP that will be used by both the Russian Navy as police force. Pictured above is dronden in a police version.
SS-27 Topol M - Russian universal intencontinental ballistic missle
SS-27 Topol M, developed in 1997 will be Russia's main nuclear missile over the next dessenierna. It is the counterpart to the U.S. Minuteman-2 solid American is heavier and can carry a larger bomb load. The U.S. "colleague" has no van. The two missile types can carry up to three nuclear warheads. Bulava, or SS-NX-30 according to NATO classification that is shown to the right is the SS-27 fixed is specially designed for submarines. He tested and still developing. SS-27 is considered to be a weak missile compared to both U.S. and Soviet missiles. The difference between, say, SS-27 Topol M and SS-18 Satan is the same as if you had compared a gun with automatic rifles to the SS-18 advantage.
SS-18 is a Soviet 24 megaton nuclear bomb missile which is not produced anymore
SS-18 Satan or RS 20 Voevoda as it is called by Russian termenologi (Voevoda means colonel in the Russian military during the Viking Age) was one of the Soviet Union and Russia's main nuclear missiles until the early 2000's. He could bomb their targets at 11 000 km away, had all 10 heavy warheads and also a large number of false warheads to deceive any anti-missile system. He was produced in Ukraine, however, and there is no way to resume production in the current situation. There are still 40 SS-18 in service, but they have already passed their technical lifetime. Russia, however, planning to develop its own version of the SS-18 eventually.
Yury Dolgorukiy is Russia's most modern submarine and carrier of nuclear weapons
Yury Dolgorukiy submarine of Project 955, the carrier of nuclear weapons, ie, SS-27 missile Bulava. Russia will have at least three such submarines in order to defend their interests. During the Soviet time, the USSR several dozen nuclear submarines with various weapons on board. In the current situation Russia lacks the economic and technological capability as there were then and Straver after a compact (with dimensions of the big ones of course) operational defense max one million soldiers.

Russia needs about four such vessels. One can then use the one from the Barents Sea towards the North Atlantic and one from Khabarovsk in the Pacific.
