    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.


    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...

    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.

    More than twenty advanced MiG-29K ship-based fighter jets will enter service with the Russian Navy before the end of 2016, according to Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu.

    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

    Αll 24xMiG-29K/KUB have been delivered but i think we will see them on board in Kuznetsov after aircraft carrier's modernization

    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

    http://www.janes.com/article/62063/indian-navy-reports-problems-with-russian-carrier-aircraft

    There are still a number of problems with India's Russian-built Mikoyan MiG-29K/KUB aircraft, as well as with the aircraft carrier formerly known as Admiral Gorshkov that entered Indian Navy service in 2013, sources in India have told IHS Jane's .

    The complaints about the MiG-29K/KUB aircraft are generally due to the inability of the Russian firm RSK-MiG to deliver a complete aircraft that incorporates all of the features promised in the contractual documents signed by both parties.

    Indian experts who have visited the test base at Goa, where flight training with the aircraft is conducted, report that the MiG-29Ks are being delivered to India in a substandard configuration. The aircraft, said one specialist who visited the Goa base recently, "are literally being upgraded and brought up to spec while on the flightline".

    The chief culprit in this dilemma, say both Indian and Russian specialists, are the combined embargoes enacted by the Ukrainian government that bar the export of any military-use items to Russia, along with the EU and US sanctions that prohibit the export of Western military components to Moscow. The 'workaround' has been for India to import these items directly, then have them integrated onto the aircraft on-site at the Goa base.

    The MiG-29K for India differs from the MiG-29KR aircraft being built for the Russian Navy (VMF) in that the Indian-produced and foreign-made components are deleted in the configuration of the latter aircraft and replaced by Russian-made systems.

    The Russian-supplied carrier, which has been renamed INS Vikramaditya , is a re-built and modified Kiev-class cruiser that has been converted into a fully capable short take-off but arrested recovery (STOBAR) aircraft carrier by Russia's Sevmash shipyards.

    Another Indian BS. I would like to know, what Ukrainian parts are in MiG-29K/KUB or western parts. MiG-29K were well tested and all planes were tested before delivery to India and they are delivered complete, so it would be interesting to know, what parts are missing and have to be installed after delivery. I have a feeling, that India again went full retard and replacing original Russian parts with foreign and than it doesn't work as originally works and than they complain how bad Russian equipment is.

    This remind me of Indian Arjun tank. They take German Leopard 2 tank, place Israeli FCS in it and got a shit of tank. If Arjun is a junk, it doesn't mean that Leopard 2 is a bad tank.

    This is a slightly less sensationalist version than I'd read elsewhere but the important bit is the last.

    Knowing that Banderastan was refusing to supply parts this would have been communicated to India, India obviously negotiated direct with Banderastan got agreement for the relevant parts to be supplied to India -> Russia & India agreed to send incompletely fitted out airframes to India for final integration there (probably with a price discount).

    No biggie since final spec is the same & Indian govt is probably happy enough to get more work done domestically dunno
    Its pretty much the standard model for building airliners last few decades: bits made in different countries put together at a final integration facility.
