    9 su-30sm and 4 su-30m2 or 9 all-together?
    9 Su-30SM + 4 Su-30M2. We still don't know, how many Su-30M2 will RuAF get this year from 16 ordered.

    Would the video from Rossii2 TV be on youtube by any chance, because i could never play it on their site... not accessible in my region cry 
    9 su-30sm and 4 su-30m2 or 9 all-together?
    Medo answered above, yes i was referring to SMs only, the 4 Su-30M2 are borts 10, 20, 30 and 40 i think.
    Btw, looks like there will be a press presentation of the news SMs at Domna on the 22nd.Very Happy

    Very interesting, shows the kind of range achieved from Bars.
    250-300km range for a fighter sized target, and 8 target engagement.

    Talk about a Flanker menagerie.
    Su-34, Su-30M2, Su-30SM, Su-35, potentially Su-27SM3...

    Btw I walked under a Su-27 today (Central armed forces museum)....every time I see it, the size just shocks me. It is a freaking monster, even compared to nearby decently sized birds. The height is the most imposing aspect.

    Airbase Domna TSB entered another new multi-purpose fighter Su-30cm

    and now only one is missing until 2013 plan is fulfilled.

    I think 10 for 2013....60 by 2016 and about 90 overall from what I've seen so far.

    It's a Russianised version of the Su-30MKI

    4 more Su-30SM delivered to Domna (in two lots, first 3 then a single one), thus making the total to 10?

    It will be interesting to see increase in Su-30SM production until 2016. I expect 14 or even more to be delivered in 2014.

    Whats going on with Su-30M2? are those delivered in full?

    Only this exists from interfax military:

    "Sukhoi Su-30M2 fighter jets to be supplied to Air Force units in Eastern Russia"

    the article says 14 aircrafts this year, 10 of them in Domna

    So we have 16 su-30sm in total with last delivery. And 4 su-30m2.

    2 Su-30M2 to be delivered in the next few day to the Eastern Military District:
    http://primamedia.ru/news/primorye/26.12.2013/325960/noviy-istrebitel-su-30-m2-v-blizhayshie-dni-postupit-na-aviabazu-v-primore.html

    I am betting they will go to Dzemgi and serve as conversion trainers for Su-35S (of which there will be 4 squadrons), need to recheck my RuAF orbat, but that's in Habarovsk Krai right? I have yet to figure out  if these 16 will also cover for a future order or another 48 Su-35S (so you will have 8 squadrons each with 2 Su-30M2), or there will be yet another order. Plus, some sources give  2 (from the initial order of 4)  Su-30M2 serving at Krymsk together with the Su-27SM3s, and one each at two different units that i can't remember now (i suspect they are equipped with SMs, the Su-30M2 serving to familiarise those pilots with a digital cockpit, but need to check)

    PS: Yes, according to the AFM orbat there should be one Su-30M2 at each Tsentralnaya Uglovya and Dzemgi  based Su-27SM regiments, but it's not confirmed.
