    2 more new Su-30SM flew to Milerovo yesterday. That makes 14 there

    http://bmpd.livejournal.com/1735917.html

    Airplanes are built as part of March and December 2012 two contracts for the supply of each of 30 Su-30cm to Russian Air Forces (VKS) of Russia. Earlier in the period 2012-2016 for these contracts, Irkut has delivered to the Air Force (VCS) 48 Su-30cm.

    In addition, during the 2015 Irkut passed four Su-30cm for Kazakhstan (serial numbers 1118, 1119, 1120, 1201) and five Su-30cm for the Russian Navy Naval Aviation (serial numbers from 1202 to 1206). By the end of 2015 at the Irkut plant have been transferred for flight testing five Russian Su-30cm aircraft (serial numbers 1301 - 1303, 1305 and 1307) for the Air force, but none of them has not yet been delivered to the customer.


    So we have 50 Su-30SM delivered in total to the air force, out of 60 ordered. And there are also 5 more in flight tests to be delivered next days.


    Cheers franco!! cheers russia

    6 more Su-30SM at Millerovo today!!

    http://bmpd.livejournal.com/1737325.html

    According to the web-site forums.airforce.ru, February 13, 2016 from Irkutsk with intermediate landings took off for the trip to the airport Millerovo (Rostov region) immediately sent six VKS Russia new multifunctional fighters Su-30cm construction Irkutsk Aviation Plant (IAP) PAO "Corporation" Irkut ". This aircraft with red hull numbers" 02 "(serial number 1220)," 21 "(serial number 1301)," 22 "(serial number 1302)," 23 "(serial number 1303)," 25 "(serial number 1305) and" 27 "(serial number 1307). in the evening, February 13, these fighters have made a stopover at the airport Tolmachevo (Novosibirsk).

    We recall that the previous day, February 12, from Irkutsk Millerovo flew two Su-30cm new construction IAP with red hull numbers "26" (serial number 1306) and "28" (serial number 1308). All these eight aircraft must join the stationed at the airport 31-Millerovo Fighter Regiment of the 1st Mixed Aviation Division of the 4th Air Force and Air Defense Army of the Southern Military District.

    On their arrival the number of new Su-30SM as part of the 31st regiment should reach 20 units.

    Thus, Irkut production plan is completely closed for 2015 for the the Su-30cm fighter for the Air Force (FSI) of Russia, took to the air in 2015, 22 of this type of aircraft. Total thus in the period 2012-2016 entered service with (VCS) 56 Su-30SM.

    It's interesting, that they show export variant called Su-30SME. Looks like Su-30MKI/MKM with fully Russian equipment without French or Israeli components.

    is wikipedia source is accurate about the number of plane russian has and is all su-27 in soviet era still in service?

    and how you guy differentiate between su-27/30/35 because if i'm not mistake all come from the same t-10 airframe.
    i cannot see the difference especially su-27 and su-35 except for su-30/sm/mki/mkm because they had canard.

    and from wiki su-30sm is derivative from mkm/mki with all russian made avionic.
    compared to SME and MKI/MKM any major improvement especially targeting pod? I read somewhere before that russian very bad in thermal imaging..that why India and Malaysia use France version.

    The most easy way to differentiate Su-30 and Su-35 from Su-27 variants is by twin nose wheel and IFR probe on Su-30 variants and Su-35. Su-27 have single nose wheel and doesn't have IFR capabilities. Su-30SM also have canards and Su-30SM and Su-35 have engines with TVC. Su-30 was developed from twin seater Su-27UB and Su-35 was developed from single seater Su-27.

    Su-30SM is domestic fully Russian version for RuAF and RuNAVY of Su-30MKI/MKM, made by Irkut. Malaysia use French equipment, India use Israeli equipment and Israeli Litening targeting pod. Russia for now doesn't use targeting pods, but one is in testings with MiG-35/29M. Most probably this pod will also be installed on Su-30 and Su-35 fighters.

    Flying High: Russian Aerospace Forces to Get Over 30 Su-30SM Fighter Jets

    The Russian Aerospace Forces will be reinforced by more than 30 multirole Su-30SM fighter jets, according to a new contract.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russian Defense Ministry and the Irkut aircraft manufacturer have signed a contract to supply over 30 multipurpose Sukhoi Su-30SM fighter jets to the Russian Aerospace Forces by the end of 2018, the ministry's press service said in a statement Sunday.

    "The Russian Defense Ministry and the Irkut Corporation have signed a contract to supply multipurpose Su-30SM fighters to the Russian Aerospace Forces… According to the terms of the contract, over 30 multipurpose Su-30SM fighters will be delivered [to the Russian Aerospace Forces] by the end of 2018," the statement said.

    The contract for the supply was signed by Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov and President of Irkut Corporation Oleg Demchenko.

    The Su-30SM is a 4++ generation fighter jet, developed by Russia's Sukhoi Aviation Holding Company.

    It is a two-seat derivative of the earlier Su-27UB (NATO reporting name: Flanker) capable of air-to-air and air-to-ground missions with a wide variety of precision-guided munitions. The aircraft features thrust-vectoring engines to enhance maneuverability.

    Contract signed for another 30+ Su-30SM's before end of 2018. Not the 60-75 that was talked about.

    Is this an additional 30+ to the 60-75 or did they cut order? Or do you think they will order another 30-35 later for 2020?

    Cut a new order, there never was an order for 60-75 just that they would be doing so by 2020. This order is through 2018 so another order for 2019 and 2020 could still come.

    There is a little catch here in 30+ and it is a +. We do not know, how much more than 30 this could be. I would also expect, that soon will follow another contract like the first two contracts, where the second contract follow quite quickly after the first for the first 60 fighters.

    Agreed and suspect the 30+ = 36 aircraft or 3 squadrons.

    According to bmpd, this contract is indeed for 36 Su-30SM, bringing the totals to 96 for VKS and 20 for VMF, of which 56 and 8 respectively are already delivered (hope i got that right).

    I think another contract for similar number will soon follow as 36 fighters is not enough for next year production considering how many Su-30SM per year Irkut could produce. Navy will also need at least 30 more to equip two regiments in Crimea and in Kaliningrad.

    Of course there will be. The interest is in 60-75 more aircrafts, so this is probably part 1 of a contract. I believe we seen this before.

    http://sputniknews.com/world/20160329/1037124484/russia-venezuela-sukhoi-jet.html

    In the last video of Su-35 we could see two Su-30M2 in the process of completing. I think those blue 89 and 90 are 18th ans 20th Su-30M2 fighters, which complete the contract for 16 jets. Vietnamese order was completed in February with delivery of the last 2 fighters and considering that Venezuela is now completing negotiations for additional 12 Su-30, there is good possibility, that RuAF order additional Su-30M2 to operate with 36 Su-27SM3, which will be modernized in coming years.
