    Any new info about this deal? I think even if Russia wants to sell Super Flankers to China, they better sign a fully pre-paid deal of around 100 jets. Anything less than that won't be smart, IMO.

    True, but any Chinese money spent on engines or aircraft can be put into research to further improve Russian engine technology and systems.

    Ironically there are a few things that China can get a hold of that Russia can't buy legally... ironic now that Russia is a democracy and China is still communist, but it was always Russias potential to be a rival to the west that created the problem, communism was always used as an excuse.

    They are in talks, early to talk about firm deal.

    At least 24 airframes under discussion.

    24 airframes? That's too less, IMO. China is looking for 117-S most probably! The engine technology has became a problem area for the Chinese. Without more powerful engines J-20 and J-31 project would become redundant.

    I think India should have accepted Russia's offer of acquiring super flankers. With the word from Russia that Russia won't sell 'em to the dragon Very Happy


    Anyway, with the new PAK-FA/FGFA, I don't think IAF should be too worried about this deal. But this topic has created a lot of interest amongst Indian defence forums/enthusiasts.

    117S is an export approved article. If China wanted it alone, they could just buy a big batch of the engines for probably less than 24 Su-35s cost.

    India can't be too happy about the deal, but on the other hand, back in the day China bought even bigger batches of Russian tech WHILE India was making the decision to buy Flankers.
    I think they understand business is business, and it is not like China isn't making fairly modern fighters on its own anyways.

    So, they want alot more than just new engine tech?

    Perhaps the good ol' Chinese formula of ordering a small number or stop the deal after taking delivery of a small number and reverse them down for PLAAF into something called J-15 lol1

    They wanted a small batch originally, so clearly they are interested in the fighter tech, not just engines which they could just buy secretly.
    Russia only agreed to a larger batch, so that is why they are currently negotiating.

    To be fair they have bought large batches of most weapons (even those they eventually indigenized) and they haven't exported any Flanker copies.
    I don't really have a problem with the sale, from a security perspective if they suddenly wanted to buy lets say 200 Su-35s it would be more worrying.

    According to some reports US has deployed a squadron of F-22 Raptor somewhere in Japan. So, perhaps the Chinese government wants to procure Su-35S to counter the stealth raptor threat.

    Anyway, even I'm not too worried about this sale. Russia has full right to sell any stuff they have developed to any country they may deem perfect. Though I also think Russia knows what is best for her and her sister India in the long term for their respective safety Very Happy

    And one more thing, once India gets the Super Sukhoi upgraded flankers, they will most likely be more advance than exported Su-35S.

    Well i think we all see that this is for Anti Aircraft role, but what calibre is this gun?

    Does not seem practical, looks something near 80++mm.

    Sujoy wrote:One thing is for sure , as is evident from the ongoing Zuhai AirShow in China it will take China hardly any time to make Chinese copies of the SU 35 & S 400 .

    Take a look at one of the copies ( below pic ) :


    You know that engines are extremely hard to copy, and the Russian air-defense is designed to be extremely hard to reverse engineer and at best they'll only copy downgraded export items down to even a lower capability. Russia shouldn't sacrifice good relations with China over such a petty issue, and while I don't agree with China breaking the license concerning the Su-33/J-15 people also made false claims of them reselling the J-15 on the arms market, which turned out to be unsubstantiated claims.

    I know a lot of Indians are upset with any military deals between Russia and China, but why should they? If China wants to be dependent on a foreign supplier than that's their choice, it just means they're less likely to attack the country that their dependent on for logistical arms resupplying.

    If that is an example of copying then it is a poor example.

    Assuming the central gun is a 30mm gatling the side mounted missiles appear to me to be Mistral MANPADS and really not in the same class as even early 1980s Tunguska let alone a modern version.

    the single gatling will be good for perhaps 3-4km range which makes the vehicle incredibly vulnerable to helicopter attack, with the missiles reaching to perhaps 6km this vehicle would be not much better than a Shilka with Igla attached to its roof like the ZSU-23-4M4 models.

    There appears to be night/all weather optics and a radar... but I am not hugely impressed.

    As shown on a recently posted video of a Tunguska malfunctioning... its twin barrel guns have a high rate of fire that generate short dense bursts that are ideal against aerial targets and in many ways replicate shotgun blasts of fire to maximise hit probability without using up too much ammo too quickly.

    this Gatling would be the same in that it would be fired in short bursts which kinda makes it overkill.

    On board a ship the gatlings make sense because some anti ship missiles have armour and it is not good enough to just hit an anti ship missile... you have to detonate its warhead well away from the ship to protect it... destroying a Granit 100m away from a ship would result in enough damage to sink the ship... 750kg of HE is a powerful explosion...

    not the same problems for land based air defence vehicles.

    Nice  thumbsup 

    28.05.14 SU-35 WILL BE SOLD TO CHINA IN THE PACKAGE OF THE THREE WEAPONS

    Pogosyan also said that he can not disclose details of the contract. The bulk of the questions were resolved during President Putin's visit to China.

    Pogosyan said that technical talks on the two of them "nearing completion." In June, Russia is expected to visit a Chinese delegation led by head of the arms of the PLA General Xia Zhang

    " President "United Aircraft Corporation" Mikhail Pogosyan said that Russia will sell to China "package of modern weapons," which will be Su-35 anti-aircraft missile system S-400 and an unnamed type of missiles "ship-to-ship" reported today mil.news.sina.com.cn.

    Good news should be useful while dealing with US Asia Pacific Pivot  Razz 

    The unnamed anti-ship missile would be Yakohant I would guess but could be Kh-35 Upgraded version.

    Wish we could sell Brahmos to China , Would be easy for IN to jam it  Laughing

    The only problem is they are working on mutually acceptable IPR agreements for future defence deal , thats the only stumbling block ..... Russia wouldnt want they end up reverse engineering Su-35 or S-400 by 2020.


    yes I dont deny our engine is not good enough . but we are already put huge money in developing engine. developing an engine is a long term investment and need a lot of money . let us see next ten year what will happen . su35 a another hint China has more than 2000 J8/7 we need replace them, but we can't produce that fast.

    from a most reliable Chinese MIC insider , he said our air force has more than 2000 2th fighter(J7/J8) need to replace, but our industry can not produce that fast ,

    they have interest in the structure of SU35 and engine, but they don't want the radar and russia missile, they want SU35 has ability to fire our own weapons and AESA radar , that's why the negotiation stuck

    Airforce don't think SU35 can counter F22 .

    about the lada submarine Navy want to learn single shell structure, and use in our future nuclear submarine , because all the submarines China build is double shell. they think single shell has more advantage

    40N6 is the most important factor in S400 deal, If without 40N6 . S400 is just a little better than S300 . 40N6 seems never mature
