    1 IL-78 MKI MARS can refuel 8 Su-30MKI on a single mission and can refuel 2 Su-30MKI simultaneously.

    may i remind you that it first has to cross our border to strike and that is in an war situation where our readiness level is 100% with much superior mig-29s guarding ourborders. they will be shot down even before they approached our border.

    A plane can be refueled inside of 3 minutes, its not really necessary to refuel a number planes at the same time.

    The capability to do so does not hurt anyone/anything right?

    Surely you would prefer the capability to refuel 2 F-35 at once rather than 1 F-35 at once.

    There is two different systems one is a drag line and the other a boom, not sure if boom is lot faster then drag line and it may have to do with stealth, every thing being the same I would prefer the speed of several at the same time.

    The Rafale has a big refueling probe sticking out like a big dick, and that would not do squat for stealth. Matter of fact to even claim a plane is stealthy with a refueling probe sticking out is past ridiculousness.

    A U.S. Air Force KC-135 and French Rafale involved in an mid-air emergency over Mali.
    Taken from a 100th ARW (Air Refueling Wing) KC-135 Stratotanker during what seemed to be (at least until then) a routine aerial refueling mission in support of Operation Serval, in Mali, the above image shows a French Air Force Rafale jet breaking to the left to separate from the tanker after the tip of IFR (In Flight Refueling) probe was severely damaged.
    According to the Escadron de chasse 01.091 “Gascogne”, who posted the image, the aircraft, with full load of weapons, was refueling from the U.S. tanker in turbulent air due to an intertropical front.
    A sudden and violent oscillation impossible for the pilot to compensate, forced the Rafale to disconnect from the tanker’s refueling hose causing a cloud of fuel to surround the cockpit and the basket to hit the probe of the receiver, damaging it.
    As a consequence, the Rafale immediately separated from the tanker and, unable to return to N’Djamena, it proceeded to the nearest divert field, where it safely landed.

    The Russian military air base in Armenia Erebuni after the refresher course in Lipetsk and Armavir training centers arrived young pilots release 2014

    In the new academic year, the young pilots will fly for the first time in modern tactical fighter fourth generation MiG-29 in the high altitude.

    Currently lieutenants pass a medical examination for admission to the flight. In the classroom qualified pilots make recommendations on the basics and rules of flight on the MiG-29 in the high altitude, the limited take-off area and a constant difference in temperature characteristics and atmospheric pressure in the winter season.

    As the commander of the air force, Colonel Alexander Petrov, flying in mountainous areas have specific features and complexity.

    "To perform various tasks military pilot to be prepared and have a professional category of not less than 2 classes. In our region, there are difficulties in the management of the aircraft due to the air is thin, the flight altitude above 1,000 meters and appliances piloting landing is carried out by resetting due to the close proximity of the border, "said Colonel Alexander Petrov.

    Avionics all facing the Air Force strategic bombers Tu-95MS missile will be fully modernized by 2020. This is "News" told in the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC). Planes constituting the backbone of the Russian strategic aviation, and equip new weapons.

    JSC "Tupolev" reported that the modernization of the Tu-95MS (NATO as it passes Bear - «Bear") is included in the list of works to ensure the state defense order and held for the benefit of the Ministry of Defense.

    - Who is coming to an end development work on the modernization of the Tu-95MS, which conducts the St. Petersburg Scientific-Technical Center "Barrier" under the leadership of JSC "Tupolev", - told "Izvestia" a source in the aviation industry.

    - The overall strategic goal of modernization - to bring the service life of 40-45 years from the date of manufacture, - explained in the KLA. However, according to a source in the "Tupolev" is not the limit - Tu-95 can be used successfully to the 2040s.

    As explained in the KLA, avionics in aircraft completely replaced by modern. The Defense Ministry "News" reported that all equipment installed on the aircraft in the course of modernization, Russian and created exclusively using domestic components.

    A source in the main command of the Russian Air Force in late 2012 told "Izvestia" that the United States had adopted the first high-precision cruise missiles, air-launched back in the 1980s. The Russian army has long counted mainly on the destructive power of a nuclear explosion, when the plus or minus 50-100 m high is not important. However, the problem has changed - you need to have a high-precision weapons capable of destroying the object jewelry.

    - Launch upgraded and can now be used not only to nuclear, but also with conventional ammunition, and this requires a very high degree of accuracy - says Deinekin. - The new missiles are characterized by high accuracy, range and reliability.

    Deinekin explained that low-flying missile flight path unobtrusive. This is their main difference from the intercontinental ballistic missile launches which can not be hidden from observations from space.

    - The problem is not precision weapons stood in front of us for a long time to hit the target, you had to lose a huge amount of ammunition - explains the director of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies Ruslan Pukhov.

    - Cruise missiles - a terrible first-strike weapons - explains the former commander of the Air Force. - And now there is a modernization of strategic long-range aircraft to improve the accuracy hit "to the vents."

    Tu-95MS bombers began arriving in the Air Force in 1982-1983-ies.

    - Then these machines were good except for the transportation of mail - recalls Deinekin, who took part in the development of the first Tu-95MS in 1982. - Who could have imagined that these airships decades will reliably protect the air borders of Russia!

    Since 1983, began joint work of the Ministry of Aviation Industry, design bureaus, State Test Center Chkalov combat units and long-range aircraft, turn the plane into a formidable strategic missile.

    - Tu-95MS their external contours are very similar to the first Tu-95 mid-1950s. And it may give the impression that this machine is hopelessly outdated, - says Deinekin. - But for the noble forms of the fuselage placed modern weapons - high-precision long-range cruise missiles. This is, incidentally, is well known to our so-called partners.
