    Decision for restoration of 5 Su-30 fighters (Su-27PU) that completed for the military in 1994-1996.

    From the end of 2016 to the end of 2017 all five cars were delivered to the 275th ARZ in Krasnodar. Now the repair of the first of them with the tail number "68 red" (registration number RF-92223, serial number 03-03, the former "50 blue") is completed, while, as can be judged, the aircraft are not subjected to any major modernization .

    Apparently, judging by the preservation of Lipetsk board numbers, all five repaired Su-30 (Su-27PU) airplanes will continue to be operated as part of the 4th State Training Center for Aviation Personnel and Military Trials in Lipetsk. It can be assumed that their restoration is associated with a shortage of combat training "sparks" in the VKS, including in the Lipetsk center. It is not by chance that a lot of older Su-27UB aircraft have been being repaired recently.

    The first of those old Su-30 b/n 68 is now flying in new colors. They all are now in process of overhauling to fly again. There is a good question, if RuAF will use them in long term. Su-35 have Su-30SM as twin seater, Su-27SM/SM3 have Su-30M2 as twin seater and older Su-27 are in the process of replacing with more modern jets.

    We must not forget, that Irkut still have 6 ex-Indian Su-30 jets in Baranovichi in Belarus. Those 6 plus 5 from RuAF and 1 additional from Irkut, could form another squadron of 12 jets to sell. They could easily be upgraded to Su-30KN standard as those for Angola. A lot will depend on Ukrainian elections as well. With nazis taking power, Russia could officially recognize LDNR and donate those planes to them. Su-30KN is still better than anything Ukraine have in their stock.

    Source: Russian air base in Armenia will be re-equipped on Su-30SM

    It is planned to deliver 18 cars in total.


    The re-equipment of the Su-30SM airbase is scheduled to begin next year. Airplanes will be delivered in two stages - in 2020–2021. It is planned to replace all 18 MiG-29s with the Su-30SM air base pilots, - Said the source agency.

    According to him, the aircraft fleet is planned to be updated in two stages, in order not to stop the implementation of the tasks by the air base, as the flight crew will have to undergo a retraining program for the new car. “When the planes start arriving, part of the flight crews will be sent to retraining at the Lipetsk aviation center, and some
    will continue to serve at the Erebuni airbase,” the source said.

    Completely logical
    Thus, the total substitution of the MiG-29 by Su-30SM in the VKS will be complete (except in the Kubinka acrobatics team that will have MiG-35)

    This raises the amount of Su-30SM needed to about 130 in the VKS, plus about another hundred for the Navy

    It also raises some questions like does mig-29/35 has any future in russia and if yes who will fly them since mig-29 pilots are converted to sukhois.

    Exactly. It seems that Russian Air Force preders Su-30SM in multi-role role than a light/medium fighter like MiG-35

    Once they have started proper production of the MiG-35 then we will see what they actually want... remember figures released regarding performance of the F-35 and Su-35 and MiG-35 don't show an enormous gap in capability between the two Russian types...

    I personally find it amusing to see the people state the MiGs are smaller and lighter and therefore not as useful as the bigger Sukhois, yet when it comes to aircraft carriers the reverse seems to be their mantra...

    Not every ship in the Russian Navy needs to be a 20K ton cruiser or 40-50 ton multi hulled carrier, but just as logical not every Russian fighter needs extreme flight range and enormous size.

    Might come as a shock to some but having 3,000km radius fighters can lead to fewer airbases placed further apart which results in poor coverage because Flankers are not twice as fast as Fulcrums so they might be able to fly over twice the distance they wont actually be able to protect twice the area...
