    Interesting picture of Su-30SM armed with R-77-1 and R-73 AAMs and KH-31 missiles flying over the sea. I wonder if this Su-30SM is one from contingent in Syria? Would be nice if RuAF finaly equip them with Hibiny ECM pods like Su-35 are.

    It is the same plane and the same session of this photo:

    This seems to be the Astrakhan area, taken over the lower Volga and the Caspian sea coast.

    Here is a bit of a surprise. The next unit to convert to the Su-30SM will be the 14th Guards Regiment at Kursk presently flying the Mig-29SMT. No word on where the Mig's will then transfer to.

    Seems like 29s have no future in RuAF at all.

    A wide choice would be to hand all their MiG-29s (incl. SMTs) to Armenia and Syria. Focus on the Flankers and future PAK FA.

    A very wide choice... but would it be a sensible one?

    The Su-30 series are the low cost low priority aircraft so replacing the MiG-29SMT makes sense if longer range flight performance is required.

    I doubt they will make enough MiG-35s to replace all existing MiG-29s in service, so many MiG-29SMT units will be replaced with cheaper model Flankers... but I suspect many of them will also be replaced with MiG-29M2s as well and later MiG-35s.

    I wouldnt mind if they gave few of those SMTs to us here either.

    "Russian Knights" received today the next 4 Su-30SMs, in addition to the ones previously delivered. So now they are fully re-grouped with 8 birds. russia
