In Russia, they intend to create a jamming aircraft capable of disabling military satellites, RIA Novosti reportswith reference to a source in the defense industry complex. According to him, a preliminary draft is already ready, experimental design work should begin soon. It is expected that the aircraft will replace the IL-22PP “Porubshchik.”
“The new aircraft was named” Porubshchik-2 “, but, most likely, this aerospace force will come under a different name. Unequivocally there will be a new glider – the possibility of creating such an aircraft on the basis of Tu-214 or IL-76 is being worked out, “the source explained.
The aircraft will be equipped with a fundamentally new on-board equipment, through which it will be able to conduct radio electronic suppression of land, air, sea targets, as well as disable enemy satellites.
