    As I stated, the Russians should have outright told the truth that the Indians did not have access to the sensitive information that the so called chief proclaimed. I figure they didn't to piss off India but knowing how India's military brass are both grossly incompetent and corrupt, I wouldn't give two shits if it pissed off the Indians since they have no problem trying to tarnish Russians through corrupt officials who come up with make belief stories how they had access to all info about radar, engines, materials and structure which they wouldn't have, not even on a completed jet.

    Why ? Everyone following miltary news know that indian don't even know what they are talking about.

    Seriously they have a homemade frigate that is a bigger clone of grigorovitch using everything grigorovitch uses Very Happy ( russia radars, weapons) but with more israeli weapons onboard and they still buy russian grigorovitch instead. It tells you a lot about their military technology comprehension and knowledge.

    The complaint for the radar is obviously someone taking what was said about Zhuk A and adding it to Su-57.
    That does ring a bell yes, you're probably right, my bad Embarassed

    The key word here is replace. Better fighters are replacing worse ones

    Correct

    Also those worse ones are probably being sent to some lower priority area (Central or East Russia) to serve out rest of their useful lifespan

    The vendetta on this forum against MiG is amusing... whats the matter... did they not save you from NATO?

    Of course when there is no maintenance and corruption involved even having F-22s would not have changed the situation you were in, but carry on and put down a perfectly effective aircraft... it will keep doing a good job where ever it goes, and you will feel important and knowledgeable in your little ivory tower.

    It took NATO years to work out how to deal with the B export to War Pact allies model of the MiG-29 with west german pilots, and their solution was AMRAAM... so it must be complete crap obviously.

    The amusing thing is that the west seriously underrates these aircraft and thinks it is OK for Egypt to have some because they are only 1970s MiG-29s... hahaha... the USAF got its butt kicked in training with the Indians in MiG-21s how much chance would they have against newer better MiGs.

    what vendetta? MiGs simply are not built anymore neither for Russian AF nor for Navy for years. They are old, worse then Sukhois and that's why being gradually replaced. That's natural process. Shitty priority bases let them "die gracefully" by tainign new pilots. yes sir yes sir yes sir

    Well if Russia some day needs light fighter perhaps VSTOL populates MiGs niche.



    BTW shouldn't we use English on this forum only? This is an Italian word lol1 lol1 lol1

    The 14th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment in Kursk received another Su-30SM fighter

    The new Su-30SM fighter (airborne number "61 red") built by the Irkutsk Aviation Plant (IAP) of PJSC "Irkut Corporation", arrived in the 14th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment of the 105th mixed aviation division of the 6th Leningrad Red Banner Army of the Air Force and air defense of the Western Military District at the Khalino airfield (Kursk). 30.11.2018 (c) Russian Ministry of Defense

    According to Alexei Ivanov, the commander of the fighter who arrived in the Kursk region, who made a flight more than 5 thousand km long from the airfield of the Irkut manufacturer, they also received and tested all aircraft systems at the plant, as well as the first overflight of the fighter.
    “Everything went in a regular mode, although the weather did not please everyone everywhere, but the aircraft was weatherproof and copes well in any zone. Soon we will complete the acquisition of the second squadron and at the end of the year we will carry out another stage. It will be a big celebration for the whole regiment, ”added Ivanov.

    Comment bmpd.
    Thus, the 14th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment of the 105th Mixed Aviation Division of the 6th Leningrad Red Banner Army Air Force and Air Defense of the Western Military District at the airfield of Khalino (Kursk) entered the regiment with the former MiG-29SMT fighter regiment another Su-30SM fighter built for the Russian Aerospace Forces at the Irkutsk Aviation Plant (IAP) of the Irkut Corporation PJSC (part of the United Aircraft Building Corporation JSC) and made an independent flight from Irkutsk. Ortovy number "61 red" (alleged serial number 10MK5 1601). The airborne numbers and inscriptions on the aircraft are printed according to the new standard scheme for the Russian Aerospace System, which looks very awkward.

    Earlier, in 2018, ten new Su-30SM fighter jets, built for the Russian Armed Flight Forces at the IAP for defense orders in 2018, arrived on the 14th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment in Kursk. On April 27, four fighters with red side numbers from 51 to 54 "(serial numbers from 10MK5 1509 to 10MK5 1512), on July 3, two more aircraft arrived with red onboard numbers" 55 "and" 56 "(estimated serial numbers 10MK5 1515 and 10MK5 1516), and on September 8, four fighters with red onboard numbers "57", "58", "59" and "60" (RF-8 registration numbers 1768, RF-81769, RF-81770 and RF-81771, respectively, the estimated serial numbers from 10MK5 1517 to 10MK5 1520). In addition, in 2017, the 14th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment received 12 Su-30SM fighters built by IAP (red side numbers from "71" to "82"), which made it possible to rearm one regiment squadron from MiG-29SMT fighter jets. Now the re-equipment of the Su-30SM and the second squadron is being completed. The total number of Su-30SM in the regiment has reached 23 units, and by the end of the year another aircraft will be completed to complete the two-squadron regiment.

    Recall that in total, since 2012, 116 Su-30SM aircraft have been contracted for the Russian Ministry of Defense, of which 88 were originally reported for the Russian Air Force (WKS), and another 28 for the Naval Aviation of the Russian Navy. Taking into account the new fighters received, the Russian Aerospace Forces under the signed contracts have thus received a total of 91 Su-30SM fighters so far, and Naval Aviation - 22. Another eight Su-30SM fighters were delivered to Kazakhstan in 2015-2017.

    Earlier, former Deputy Minister of Defense of Russia Yuri Borisov said that the IAZ production program provides for the delivery of 14 Su-30SM airplanes to the Ministry of Defense in 2018, including 12 for the VKS, and two for Naval Aviation of the Russian Navy. Thus, to date, according to the 2018 program, IAZ delivered the VKS 11 Su-30SM airplanes, and two aircraft, the Naval Aviation of the Russian Navy (the last two with blue side numbers "76" and "77" arrived on July 1 to the 72nd aviation Baltic Fleet aviation base at the Chernyakhovsk airfield in the Kaliningrad region).

    From above, it appears like the 116 order is going to be 92 (1 lost) for the Air Force and 24 for the Navy.
