This system at least 25 times increases endurance of a fighter.
Within MAKS-2017 Mr. Vladimir Mikheev, the Advisor of the First Deputy of the RETC General Director, stated that ‘By today the Ministry of Defense has about one hundred SU-34 100% supplied and equipped with the ‘Khibiny-10V’ systems’. He noted that endurance of a fighter equipped with ‘Khibiny-10V’ increases at least 25 times.
The Aviation System of Jamming Support (JaSS) ‘Khibiny’ provides defense of the aircrafts from missile attacks of the opponents’ fighters and ground air defense facilities.
The system provides radio position finding of the probing signal from the irradiation source with subsequent distortion of the reflected signal’s parameters. This ensures flash delay of the aircraft with the ‘Khibiny’ system aboard. Besides, during operation the system provides disguise of the true object on the background of cover targets and impedes assessment of the distance to the object, its speed and circumferential position.
Apart from the integrated jamming support system ‘Khibiny’, the ‘Radio-electronic technologies concern’ (RETC) supplies for the Aerospace Forces the special containers to be installed under the fuselage of the fighter, the so called extensible units. They supplement functionality of the main system enabling to convert the standard front-line bombers SU-34 into the specialized radio warfare aircrafts.
By its combat options the fighter-bomber SU-34 is related to 4+ generation of the aircrafts. Among the features: extended flight range up to 4,000 km, max speed up to 1,900 km/h and the newest system of weapons control.
