    New modern fighters like Su-30M2/SM, Su-34, Su-35, MiG-29K and modernized ones like Su-25SM/3, Su-24M2, MiG-29SMT don't need SVP-24 as their modern fire control and navigation complex already have the same capabilities. SVP-24 will not bring any improvement to them.

    Ka-52 doesn'thave SVP-24 and doesn't need it. It is true, that RuAF will arm Ka-52 with guided and unguided bombs up to 500kg, but it will not get SVP-24. They will only integrate them in its existing FCS and install new software.

    Gefest install SVP-24-50 to single seat attack helicopter Ka-50.

    In Ka-50 cockpit you could see VM-10 LCD from SVP-24. RuAF got some serial Ka-50 before production of Ka-52 started and they were equipped with SVP-24-50. I don't know, if they are operational now.


    Interesting is, that Su-33 got modified VM-10 LCD with additional buttons around it to make it real MFD in contrast with VM-10 LCD in Tu-22 and Ka-50.

    On the left pilot could choose in menu up and down. On the right have buttons for SVP, navigation and HUD Picture and additional buttons. In the botton row it have distances for radar ground mapping similar to Su-24M Orion-A radar only with longer range of 300 km. Also it have upper buttons for unknown functions. It actually looks like SVP-24-33 was just part of modernization, which also include other parts. It seems radar was also modernized and become multirole with A-A, A-G and A-S modes. Time will tell, what new armament will Su-33 get with this modernization.

    Does gefest only work with free fall bombs or can it be used to help/aid the use of rockets such as S-24,S-25, S-5/8/13 etc basically unguided rockets

    It is a fire control and navigation system, so it should work by predicting the paths of unguided weapons... both free fall and rocket propelled.

    My understanding of the Mi-35M upgrade (with the under nose optics ball turret) that the introduction of the laser range finder and ballistics computer greatly improved the effective range and accuracy of the cannons and rockets, as well as improving the performance of Ataka and Shturm.

    Interesting question. SVP-24 could help with target delivery and map, that pilot could better choose how to attack the target. But for attack itself I'm not sure. Those rockets have quite short range and are aimed to the target through HUD or older visier. Unguided rockets are primarily used to cover area, not against single targets. That mean against infantry. For attacking on single target they already have laser guided rockets like S-8KOR, S-13KOR,... Maybe if they increse the range of rockets, than Gefest could help. But new helicopters Ka-52 and Mi-28N and Su-25SM/3 already have modern FCS and don't need SVP-24. It is useful only to upgrade older planes and helicopters, like those in Syria, Iraq, Lybia,... It is interesting, that Gefest didn't install SVP-24 on Mi-24 helicopter.
