    Plastic containers are nice, but I have yet to see anything past that. And doubt there is anything.

    Well the MIG-29K isn't officially in service as yet, while the MiG-35 order is still being negotiated - so I dare say that there's nothing to integrate with just yet, and that in general it's still too early to say for now.

    We have seen them (company MiG-29K and MiG-29M2s, as well as Navy K/KUBs) flying around with Kh-31 and Kh-35.

    Meanwhile the Klub container has never been seen outside of airshow plastic models.

    Has the Klub really been seen much of anywhere at all, as part of any weapons system or launcher? Outside of brouchures, plastic mock-ups, promo videos and the like I mean.

    Remember it's a pretty new weapon, and a very potent one - they might not too eager to show it off to the public, nor will they neccesserily be in a rush to press it into service - albeit I think it's inevitable that they will do; and for all platforms - ship-launched, sub-launched, air-launched & ground-launched.

    I would expect the MiG-29K and MiG-35 to be compatible with the Klub family of weapons... I rather suspect the Su-33 upgrade will be a cheap SM upgrade rather than a radical and expensive Su-35 like upgrade with the Su-33 being the fighter interceptor and the MiG-29K being the bomb truck... and trainer.

    If a Mig-35 can carry Kalibr can a Mig-29K also carry it?

    According to that link; they want to use the Su-33 for long-range air superiority, and the MiG-29K for medium-range air superiority. Although I assume the MIG-29K will be designated for any multirole missions that might come up too.

    Given that the Su-33 will be left with a specific role; they probably won't keep more than 4-6 of them on the Kuznetsov; the MiG-29Ks are perfectly capable of ensuring air cover at closer ranges.

    Filmed in the exposition of the International Military-Technical Forum "Army 2015" in Kubinka near Moscow is one of the new naval MiG-29K (hull number "39 blue"), built for the Naval Aviation of the Russian Navy in 2014 under a contract from February 2012 the supply of 20 MiG-29K and four MiG-29KUB.

    Russian Navy to Get Over 20 Ship-Borne Fighter Jets by Year-End

    The aviation branch of the Russian Navy will get more than 20 new ship-borne MiG-29K fighters by the end of 2015, the Defense Ministry’s press service said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The warplanes will serve as a backbone for a new aviation unit within the Northern Feet.

    "To boost the Navy’s aviation component, the work is underway to equip the Navy Aviation [branch] with MiG-29K. This work began in 2013 and will be finalized in 2015," the press service said in a statement, adding the Navy will get more than 20 MiGs.

    Russia has been stepping up its presence in the Arctic since late 2014 when it revised its military doctrine to declare the region an area of its interest.

    The Arctic is believed to have vast untapped reserves of oil and gas. The five Arctic Circle countries, comprising the United States, Russia, Canada, Norway, and Denmark, are particularly interested in exploring them.

    GarryB wrote:The question is... when the Su-33s are grounded, will they put MiGs on board or will they take this opportunity to put the K into dry dock for that big upgrade it was supposed to be getting.

    I suspect it all depends on the status of all the new things they want to fit... and the changes they want to make.

    testing the new nuclear propulsion plants for new heavy ships and carriers would be useful, but if they are not ready then it might spend some more time at sea...

    they will likely wait for the naval Koalition gun system to be ready or perhaps a 203mm calibre version of it.... Twisted Evil   and of course having S-500 ready to go would also make things faster...

    I have seen some reports in Russian sources that they are planning to form two air wings for Kuznetsov atm one new with Mig29K and one that will consits from overhauled SU33s and SU25UTG and will serve as secondary air wing, i am guessing this is sign they are serious about new carrier and that they want to have more deck capable pilots available.

    Mods, this is a MiG-29K related thread but lots of post related to carrier and shipyards. If possible shift all those post in last few pages to the related/appropriate thread preferably to the Shipyard/infrastructure related thread.

    Also, please edit Mig-29K to MiG-29K, its really irritating to see it mostly written as Mig.

    Naval Aviation starts training at Yeisk on the Mig-29K, 14 on site and final 10 to be delivered this year. Should go operational next year.

    Those wanting to continue the discussion about shipyards and new carriers can look here:

    http://www.russiadefence.net/t2100p45-united-shipbuilding-corporation-news

    About 4 pages in will have the stuff from this thread.

    Before posting anything else to this thread please make sure it is directly related to the MiG-29K

    how much less footprint does mig-29k have over su-33? kuznetsov could carry 14 su-33 or 20 mig-29k.
    chinese lianonig without granits can carry 26 su-33 - that means 36 mig-29?

    Kuznetsov aircraft wing is not limited by space, but rather by the number of available aircraft. There is A LOT more space for more Su-33 in there.

    However, to answer your question... Mig-29K is similar in size to F/A-18E/F. Slightly smaller. Shorter length (17.3 m vs 18.3), and smaller folded wingspan (7.8 m vs 9.3 m). Su-33 is 21.2 m by 7.4 m in dimension.

    For perspective:

    well not quite, i still dont know how max su-33 or mig-29 kuznetsov can take. but su-33 sure does fold allot, its less width then mig-29 in hangar. only longer. 22x7,4 vs 17,3x7,8.
    does su-33 outer folding wing have fuel tanks?

    This would be logical. NAVY should order 12 MiG-29KUB for Yeysk training center, where they could train naval and carrier pilots all time without the need for the planes from operational units, that they could have a constant flow of new young pilots. Than they should order another regiment of 24 MiG-29K/KUB for rotation on the carrier. Su-33 could now serve from ground air base.

    MiG-29K/MiG-35 is equivalent to F/A-18E/F Super Hornet

    Naval aviation of the Russian Navy is developing a multi-functional MiG-29K

    New MiG-29K is a deeply modernized version of the MiG-29K sample 1988. Ground training facility in Yeisk training for aircrew flying the MiG-29K will be opened in the I quarter of 2016, said Shoigu.

    MOSCOW, December 1 - RIA Novosti. The pilots of naval aviation of the Russian Navy develop a new multi-purpose fighter MiG-29K, said Tuesday the Russian Defense Minister, Army General Sergei Shoigu.

    "For training flight personnel continues to build its use of ground training complex in Yeisk (Krasnodar region)," - he said on a conference call.

    According to the plan, the complex, unique in Russia is not, due to open in the first quarter of next year.

    Single MiG-29K is a multi-functional fighter generation "4 ++", designed to solve the problems of air defense ship connections, gaining dominance in the air, hitting surface and land targets with precision weapons day and night in all weather conditions.

    New MiG-29K is a deeply modernized version of the MiG-29K sample of 1988 ("9-31").

    People suggesting naval models of the Yak-130 to replace the Su-25 for the carrier training role should perhaps be aware that the MiG-29K2 has a two seater version of unified design as the current model Mig-29K2 is based on the MiG-29M2/MiG-35 airframe design.

    That of course means the role of carrier trainer has become redundant with the opportunity to replace the trainer only Su-25s with multirole MiG-29K2UBs...
