    The Mig-29K's will be known as the 100th Naval Aviation Fighter Regiment instead of the 279th as per this article;

    Considering, that they form a new regiment with MiG-29K/KUB for Kuznetsov carrier, than we could assume, when those MiG-29 regiment will be on the carrier deck, Su-33 carrier career will be over and will serve as ground based regiment. As ground based fighter Su-33 could still serve for another 15 to 20 years, so it is worth to modernize them to protect northern and arctic region, specially as it have better anti corrosion protection for operating over the sea and better navigational equipment for over the sea navigation, than standard ground based fighters. Stronger structure for carrier operations will enable quite long service life from ground based operations. They should modernize them to Su-27SM3 standard.

    There is a good question if RuNAVY will buy more MiG-19K/KUB planes. They should buy at least 12 MiG-29KUB for Yeisk naval training center to constantly train new pilots. Shortage of carrier pilots is quite a problem. Forming another regiment for rotation on the carrier would be good too.

    Another idea (adding to the upgrade you mention) would be to convert a dozen or two to dedicated EW platforms like the EF-18G, combined with ability to attach buddy-buddy aerial refuel kits. This will give extra eyes and legs to the shorter-legged MiG-29K. The carrier could easily carry 4-6 of those EW/tanker-enabled platforms (leave the Su-25UTG home) and then the standard complement of MiG-29K.

    PS. I guess a big problem here is Su-33 being single-seat only.

    I think they could make a dedicated EW platform from MiG-29KUB and adding few of them to the carrier group would be good idea.

    From the above news link
    Meanwhile, Igor Kozhin, head of naval aviation at the Russian Navy, has said that the aviation's main task in 2016 will be to finish creating a regiment of MiG29Ks for the Russian aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov.

    How many MiG-29K/KUB have been delivered till now and how many have been carrier qualified till now?
    In short, how many combat capable 29K (& 33) can we expect with Kuznetsov during its deployment to the Mediterranean?
    TIA

    Hope that doesn't mean we will only see a squadron of MiG-29K operating off the Kuznetsov after 2019.

    If they have enough pilots for them and qualify them in Yeysk for carrier operations, than I don't see a problem to place whole regiment on the carrier.

    Possibilities of deck-based fighters MiG-29K / KUB for flights in the Eastern Mediterranean



    The publication also notes that four MiG-29K / KUB equipped containers REB and bars refueling, will be able to play the same role as the American aircraft Boeing EA-18G and F / A-18E / F, during strikes supported by Saudi Arabia orders, threatening the regime of Bashar al-Assad

    Nice to see MiG-29K fighters on Kuznetsov carrier. I wonder, if they will receive few targeting pods for operation in Syria for testings in real combat conditions?

    A photograph of a MiG-29K naval fighter (onboard number "41 blue"), crashed at the coastal airfield (Severomorsk-3?), from the 100th separate fighter aviation regiment of the Northern Fleet of the Russian Navy. Earlier this incident was not reported.
