Russian SU-34 Fullback Off The Coast Of Norway

Tue Nov 11, 2014 2:47 pm

Russia is showing off some of it's newest Equipment off the coast Finnmark in the North of Norway in october. Apparently a first encounter in the high North of this type. The Aircraft was part of a large Group of Russian Bear Bombers and tanker Aircraft that flew along the coast of Norway and all the way Down to Portugal. The Aircrafts where followed by Norwegian F-16 fighters and British Typhoon fighters among others.


Here is a Russian SU-34 Fullback and a Norwegian F-16:

At least the image quality in 2014 is better than in the 1980s.

What will happen several years down the line when the Russian start flying their stealth fighter up and down the Baltic ? How will countries like Norway even be able to detect it ?

How fortunate that Norway is not on the Baltic.

Sweden has put gripen at the island Gotland again in order to get shorter respons times.

I am pretty shure that Ericsson radar has a task to find ways to better detect the 5ft gen aircraft. Otherwise sweden will get problem with russia be able to attack its airforce bases that today is very low number compared to cold war and its system of road airbases.

Norway is in even worse position with only one airbase.

Looks like a SIGINT flight, judging by the ECM/ESM pods, centerline fuel tank and short range AAM's.

It was originally going to have one but that was canned.

Serial versions have an APU and Chaff/Flare dispensers.

OK this might be a dumb question but here it goes, I guess this plane was detected by Norwegian radar and then the air force sent the F16's to intercept, but in another thread I read how another Russian plane almost colided with a passenger plane over the Baltic because "it's transponder was not transmitting".....why was one plane detected and the other one was not? was this SU-34 using a transponder and the other one was not? do they even have transponders? is radar coverage better in Northern Norway vs The Baltic? Are there more accurate radar systems in one location vs the other one?

Old post, but needs correction. Norway does not only have one airbase.

True, but two airbases with fighter aircraft squadrons is still not good.

If i,m not misstaken i recall reading in a norwegian newspaper that the F-35,when it comes in to service only would be located at one airbase...Bodö?

The Norwegian government's plan is to base the F-35 at Orland Air Station, with a secondary airfield at Evenes Air Station. They've been doing a number of upgrades to Evenes Air Station to enable it to handle a detachment of F-16's and eventually, F-35's at the air station for QRA.

Evenes Air Station is further north than Bodo, so it would allow better coverage of the north.
