    Perhaps, this news from Mil.Today shed some light... Russian Defense Ministry suspends flights of Su-27 fighters until clarification of causes of the air crash happened Thursday morning, June 9, in Moscow Region.
    Shocked
    The Russian military authority reports that, according to preliminary data, the jet crash was caused by a technical failure. The pilot did everything possible to drive the aircraft away from an inhabited locality, so had no time for catapulting.

    MOSCOW, July 3 -. RIA Novosti Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov on Sunday inspected the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Plant named after Yuri Gagarin on the fulfillment of the state defense order in 2016, the press-service management and department information.

    Borisov inspected the plant production capacity and familiar with the manufacturing process fighter Su-35S. The deputy head of the Ministry of Defence showed the assembly plant and the manufacturing process Sukhoi PAK FA (PAK FA).

    In 2015, he was awarded the contract for the modernization of four Su-27, which will be delivered to the Ministry of Defense in 2017. As part of the Sukhoi PAK FA is the realization of an experimental batch of T-50 aircraft, serial contract that will be concluded in 2017 with the delivery dates in 2018.

Intended for long-range and short-range air combat, interception and destruction of manned and unmanned aircraft over its territory and ensure the actions of naval forces at a distance of 300-400 kilometers from the coastline.
    T-50 (PAK FA project) - Russia's fifth generation fighter aircraft equipped with a fundamentally new avionics suite and promising radar with a phased antenna array. The first flight took place in 2010 in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, the first public display of fighter aircraft - in 2011 at the Aviation and Space Salon MAKS in Zhukovsky near Moscow.



    Take it that the 4 Su-27 under modernization are part of the 36 Su-27P being rebuilt to Su-27SM3 standards. First deliveries were to be in 2017.

    I've read that Su-27SM/SM3 uses N001 radar.

    In my opinion, the new SM3 should use at least the N011 version, since the cockpit devices are modern.

    Su-27SM/SM3 use N001VEP radar with air to air, air to ground and air to sea modes, which is still very capable radar and good enough for modernized Su-27 jets.

    The Panda version no? Can detect 5m^2 target at 190km and engage 6 at once?

    No. I don't think Panda antenna was ever made.

    N001VEP apparently can detect upwards to 200km range according to a source medo posted from a Venezuelan source of the Su-30's they use.

    Is there any news on the pilot ? Did he get out ok ? Taking an impact on the canopy right where the pilot sits could be bad news if the canopy broke.

    Edit: It looks like he is still in the plane and the canopy is intact. He probably was a bit heavy with the throttle on the ice.

    The photographs below were taken from Tikaboo Valley, near Groom Lake, Nevada, by Phil Drake, who was lucky enough to observe one of the U.S. military’s Su-27P Flanker-Bs dogfighting with an F-16 — presumably one of the four Groom Lake based -D models — in the skies above Area 51.

    Although the quality of the pictures is low — the aircraft were flying between 20,000 and 30,000 feet — they are extremely interesting since the Flankers operating from Groom are not a secret but have rarely been photographed.

    The Su-27s have been previously documented in 2003–2004 and more recently between 2012 and 2014.
