PANAGYURISHTE, (BM) – Your briefly report on December 24 in last six hours from BulgarianMilitary.com:
Reported T-50 factory fighter crash near Komsomolsk-on-Amur
From the Khabarovsk Territory come reports of an emergency situation with the T-50 fighter. This is a 5th generation aircraft, which, after being put into service, receives the designation Su-57.
Information services report that the T-50 crashed near Komsomolsk-on-Amur.
The reports say that the fighter was tested by the manufacturer. Gagarin. That is why in the reports the designation is not Su-57, but T-50.
According to the latest information, the pilot who piloted the fighter managed to eject, after which he was discovered by a search and rescue squad. On a Mi-8 helicopter, the pilot was delivered to a medical facility. His health is not reported.
According to updated data, the fighter fell about 120 km from the runway of the Dzemgi airfield. This is a joint air base of state and experimental aviation (KnAAZ) in Komsomolsk-on-Amur.
Officially, the manufacturer currently does not comment on the incident.
Recall that some time ago a message appeared about the readiness to acquire a batch of Su-57 by the Algerian Air Force.
According to local sources, the T-50 factory fighter tested the latest aircraft engine. In all likelihood, we can talk about testing the experimental power plant of the second stage for fifth-generation fighters Su-57.
At the moment, fighters, which will soon be delivered to the Russian Aerospace Forces, are equipped with aircraft engines of the so-called first stage. The engines of the second stage are designed to give the aircraft completely new capabilities.
Destroyed drones of militants who tried to attack the base “Khmeimim”
From Syria, reports have come that Syrian terrorists have once again attempted to carry out an attack on the Russian Air Force base, Khmeimim, located in Latakia province.
Illegal armed groups, according to the Center for the Reconciliation of the warring parties, drones used to attempt an attack. This is not the first time that we are talking about using UAVs specifically for breaking through the Khmeimima air defense system.
The militants used unmanned aerial vehicles in the dark. It is noted that Russian air defense systems recorded the approach to the air base of two UAVs. As a result, both drones were destroyed. About exactly what air defense systems were used to destroy the UAV, not reported.
According to a representative of the Center for the Reconciliation of the warring parties, the air base operates as usual: there are no casualties and destruction.
The militants clearly tried to influence the air base and inflict damage. But these plans were ultimately frustrated by Russian troops.
Top Iranian official: Israel ‘will regret’ attacks in Syria
A top Iranian official said that Israel “will regret” its attacks in Syria, which have reportedly targeted Iranian resources and weapons shipments.
The Israeli attacks “will not pass without a response,” Ali Akbar Velayati, a top adviser to Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said in an interview with the Russia Today’s Arabic channel that was published Monday.
His remarks came out a day after an airstrike in Syria that Damascus officials blamed on Israel and that reportedly killed three, foreign pro-regime fighters, likely Iranians. It was not clear if Velayati had spoken to the station before or after the Sunday missile attack.
Iran has increasingly been saying it will retaliate to alleged Israeli strikes in Syria.
Channel 12 TV news reported Monday that Israeli officials are concerned Iran may attempt to launch a revenge assault similar to a September 14 cruise missile and drone attack on Saudi Arabian oil facilities that knocked out half the kingdom’s oil production. Although Yemen’s Iranian-backed Houthi rebels claimed responsibility, the US, Britain, France, Germany, and Saudi Arabia have blamed Iran of being behind the attack.
