    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.

    ...Or they might not be ready to rush a weapon system in to service if there's a potential major improvement in capability on it's way. Considering that they just recently announced they successfully created hypersonic fuel, and Zircon's development is on the horizon, they might just wait and save money for a scram jet powered Kaliber, kind of like why there isn't any orders for T-90AM/MS because they're waiting for the T-14 Armata.

    AFAIK, China was testing it, research purposes probably.

    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.

    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.

    Russian Northern Fleet’s fighter jets hold drills with missile launches over Barents Sea

    Several dozen flights by deck-based Su-33 [NATO reporting name: Flanker-D] fighters were performed

    MOSCOW, April 28. /TASS/. Deck-based fighter jets of Russia’s Northern Fleet held tactical exercises with air-to-air missile launches over the Barents Sea, Fleet spokesman Capitan First Rank Vadim Serga said on Tuesday.

    "Pilots of the Northern Fleet’s shipborne fighter jet aviation regiment held flight tactical exercises with the practical launch of air-to-air missiles. The drills were held at the naval aviation’s combat training ranges over the Barents Sea. Several dozen flights by deck-based Su-33 [NATO reporting name: Flanker-D] fighters were performed," the spokesman said.

    The pilots repelled an imaginary enemy’s attack on a group of combat ships and performed elements of an air fight, the spokesman said.

    "For the first time in 2015, young pilots took part in the tactical drills. The pilots performed missions both solely and in pairs, wings and groups. Apart from practicing combat training assignments, they developed the skills of flying over the featureless terrain and performed the tasks of crew teamwork in ordinary and complex weather conditions, the spokesman said.

    So they are after all going to modernize the Su-33. Well the deal with India bying Mig-29K was ok and logically Russians have choosen the Mig because the factory tooling that was made for India... It would take an additional cost overhead to switch to the Mig-29K production, but... Su-33 after modernization would be a true air dominance fighter... Mig-29 with its range and weapons carriage is comparable to the F-18. But Su-33 would be a "weapons truck". Speed, range, number of pylons, radar options.... Mig-29K is a good plane but the original phylosophy arround which it was designed was that it was a front line fighter to be utilized in huge numbers... That you cannot do on sea where you have a single carrier with extremely limited numbers. On sea small groups of planes have to be used and as a result of that greater focus have to be made to make each unit as powerfull as possible. In this aspect Su-33 is the option. It is fast, it is maneuverable, it can carry a lot of weapons and it can carry them very far away + its radar options are better... In this circumstances mixed numbers of types would be the most probable outcome.

    I could only speculate, but if they equip Su-33 with Zhuk-MS radar and more powerful Al-31FM1 engines, it could still be quite potent multirole fighter. Maybe Su-33 will not serve on carrier, as NAVY receive new MiG-29K for carrier, but its strong undercarriage made it more suitable from ground base operations from more harsh air bases in Arctic. It need less space than MiG-31, so more suitable for smaller air bases.

    A few more details...

    Upgraded ASW helicopter Ka-27M features a new search-targeting system "Kasatka-VB" and new radar created by "Fazotron-NIIR". The new radar, called "Kopio-A", allows circular radar overview with a radius of 250 km from the simultaneous tracking of up to 50 targets and determining their exact coordinates.

    "Kasatka" elements:

    -Optoelectronic Systems with:Thermal channel, TV channel, Laser Rangefinder
    -ELINT system
    -Dipping sonar
    -magnetometer
    -other minor sub systems

    Good....because the ASW aircraft fleet is in urgent need of an upgrade and probably expansion in numbers. I was reading recently that at it's peak, the USSR had about 100 operational ASW aircraft, while today that number is around 30.

    The 'Kasatka' ASW system which is being installed on the Ka-27M can be installed on a variety of platforms




    There's also the Be-300MP project for an ASW and Maritime patrol version of the Be-200

    Repair of amphibious aircraft Be-12 in naval aviation of the Russian Navy in Yalta. It seems no replacement is projected in the foreseeable future.

    When I first saw it I thought Tu-214, but where he says brand new aircraft I suspect he might mean the MS-21...

    the MS-21 is supposed to replace the Tu-204/214 and Tu-154 so it should be in the right weight class, and it is supposed to be ready for delivery in 2017 so in answer to your question... probably the Yak-242.

    The Ka-29 aboard the "Yellow 39" in Yeisk

    An interesting photo shoot of one of the three are now in flying condition of transport and combat helicopters Ka-29 naval aviation of the Russian Navy - a helicopter with the hull number "39 Yellow" (RF-registration number 34188), operating in 859th Combat Center implementation and training of flight crews of naval aviation of the Russian Navy in Yeisk. The photos were taken in July 25, 2015.

    As part of this 859th Center is also Ka-29 with tail number "Yellow 38" (registration RF-34194). In addition, as part of Northern Fleet aircraft operated helicopter Ka-29 with tail number "23 Red".

    Total from 1977 to 1988 were built three prototypes and 59 series helicopters Ka-29, seven of which after the collapse of the Soviet Union moved to Ukraine (two of them are now in flying condition).

    Su-24MR conducting exercises to detect submarines in the Sea of Okhotsk. Now, the Su-24 has no capability to detect submarines, so what is going on here?
