    Is it possisble, by mix technology from Spphir 25 (Mig-25 radar of 400kW) and the Bar-R, to make a PESA with 400KW power and new processing to reach ranges of 700-800 km ?

    Irbis Is 20kW so a 400kW radar won't have probleme with this ranges. An AESA with 400 kW will have heat problems, they already have cooling issues with 10 kW power. So let's consider a PESA.

    Su-30 is a double seat so the rear man can use it at its limit and they wouldn't care about being detected by EW as the range would be big enough to stay out of the range of any fighter.

    Because of its RCS it will be spotted at max distance for every new radar so they should make it just for RAW POWER; powerfull radar, powerfull engines and put bigger missiles like a 250km R-77 and a 500 Km R-37.

    In terms of ECM it would destroy any seeker of any missile lunched at him.

    Upgraded Su-30SM1 fighter

    As the newspaper "Izvestia" reports in the article of Dmitry Litovkin and Alexei Ramm "The thirty" has reached the next level. The super-maneuverable Su-30SM fighter will receive fifth-generation weapons, "the Russian Defense Ministry and the Irkut Corporation are completing the modernization of the super-maneuverable Su-30SM fighter. He will be given the Su-30SM1 index. Improvements will affect on-board radio-electronic equipment, and aircraft will be able to use the latest high-precision ammunition. According to experts, the updated "drying" in its capabilities will equal the fifth-generation combat vehicles.



    As "Izvestia" was told in the command of the Air and Space Forces, the modernization of the Su-30SM takes into account the experience of daily and combat operation of fighters. Updated "drying" will receive a number of improvements in the field of on-board radio electronic equipment, as well as an expanded range of precision munitions. Several machines have already been modernized. The United Aircraft Corporation confirmed that the work was underway, but declined to comment further.

    Military expert Anton Lavrov told Izvestia that if a single digit is added to the name of the car, then most likely it's about adding new types of ammunition to the nomenclature of the fighter used by the weapon.

    "Su-30SM is a very good car," the expert said. - In the case of SM1, it may be about adding new suspension survey systems and integrating additional weapons. It can be assumed that the updated fighters will have the opportunity to apply the corrected KAB-250 air bombs, as well as the X-59MK2 air-to-surface missiles.

    The KAB-250 bomb has a modular design and can be equipped with high-precision satellite and laser guidance systems. The product was created in response to the development of US controlled air bombs of the SDB (Small Diameter Bomb) family. They are equipped with American fighters of the fifth generation F-22 and F-35. KAB-250 with a laser aiming head and high-explosive fragmentation warhead is designed to defeat unarmored equipment, railway junctions, warehouses and other enemy facilities. The air bomb can be used either singly or by volley from an aircraft equipped with on-board laser target designators, as well as with external illumination of targets from the ground.

    X-59MK2 - further development of the Kh-59 missile. The latter was intended to destroy surface targets such as "boat" or "ship". In the MK2 variant, the possibility of destroying low-contrast ground-based stationary targets with pre-explored coordinates was added to these capabilities. The missile belongs to the class of high-precision aviation weapons, acting on the principle of "shot-forget".

    The Su-30SM fighter is the latest modification of the most mass-produced Russian multipurpose Su-30 fighter of the "4 ++" generation. This is the first machine with super maneuverability. These qualities were obtained by the fighter thanks to the highly effective integral aerodynamic scheme of the airframe, the control system for the thrust vector of the AL-31FP engines, as well as the front horizontal empennage. Thanks to the onboard "Bars" radar, the pilot can use weapons in a maneuverable flight at a long range. At the same time, simultaneously attack one air and one ground targets.

    The aircraft is able to apply the entire spectrum of modern and advanced high-precision weapons of the air-to-air and air-to-surface class. Fly without refueling and suspension tanks up to 3 thousand km. During a recent visit to the Irkutsk Aviation Plant (IAZ) Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov said that in 2017 VCS is expecting the delivery of 17 new Su-30SM fighters.

    Концерн Радиоэлектронные Технологии (КРЭТ) передал Министерству Обороны Российской Федерации новейшую станцию радиоэлектронного подавления САП-518СМ. Это – первая поставка данного изделия войскам в рамках исполнения Государственного оборонного заказа. Церемония передачи прошла на авиасалоне МАКС-2017.


    САП-518СМ является модернизированной версией станции помех САП-518, обладает более высокими ТТХ при значительном улучшении показателей надежности. По условиям государственного контракта КРЭТ продолжит передачу ВКС России станций САП-518СМ для оснащения самолетов СУ-30СМ.


    KRET delivered to RuAF first complete of new improved SAP-518SM ECM pods for Su-30SM fighters. Finaly they got them. Now SU-30SM need only targeting pod and it will be complete.

    Russian Defense Ministry Receives 100 Su-34s With Radio Warfare Systems

    SAP-518 is a new contract. This year, we are supplying some 15 sets for Su-30SM aircraft wrote:

    Looking at this Picture from KRET it seems Su-30SM finally get its modernization with domestic components replacing foreign, integration of new weapons and ECM pods. They also write improved radar with longer range. Export Bars-M radar have range of 350 km, so we could assume upgraded domestic Bars-R radar have range of 400+ km.

    Isn't this representing the differences between the MKI,MKM... versions and the SM. I've seen this before, without the upgranding part you're talking about, to show what are the domestic components build to replace the foreign ones.

    Su-30SM will this year receive their first SAP-518SM ECM pods and this is the first time I see SU-30SM with HUD from Su-35, before they all have HUD from Thales. Also we see this year integration of new Kh-29TD and R-77-1 missiles, so something is about this adaptation program from 2016 till 2019. Bars-R radar was modified from export Bars-M for domestic need, but with this upgrade they want to increase the range of radar.

    Αnother 2 Su-30SM for Kursk in 27 July.



    http://bmpd.livejournal.com/2759331.html

    The planes, which arrived on July 27, were built by the IAZ in the framework of the State Defense Order of 2017, and became the third batch of Su-30SM fighters transferred to the Russian Defense Ministry in 2017. As reported earlier, at the end of May, two Su-30SM fighters with blue airborne numbers "71" and "72" were transferred to the Naval Aviation of the Russian Navy and became part of the 72nd aviation base of the Baltic Fleet aviation on the airfield Chernyakhovsk (Kaliningrad region), and on June 3, the first two Su-30SMs were introduced into the 14th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment in Khalino for the rearmament of this regiment (red side numbers "71" and "72").

    In total, since 2012, 116 Su-30SM aircraft have been contracted for the Ministry of Defense of Russia, of which 88 are intended for the Russian Air Force (VCS), and another 28 for the Navy of the Russian Navy. To date, the Russian Air Force under the signed contracts thus obtained 70 Su-30SM fighters (of which ten in 2016 and four in Khalino in 2017), and Naval Aviation - 17 (seven of them in 2016 and two in 2017 Year).

    The plans for the rearmament of the 14th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment (two-squadron convoy) from the MiG-29SMT fighters to Su-30SM fighters became known in 2016. In November, it was officially announced that the pilots of the 14th regiment arrived at the 4th Training and Retraining Center in Lipetsk for retraining for Su-30SM fighters.

    According to available information, in total in 2017 the 14th Aviation Regiment is to receive 14 Su-30SM aircraft.

    It can be assumed that the MiG-29SMT fighters, freed from the re-equipment of the 14th regiment, having a small age, will go to manning any new aviation regiment.
