    MiG-29/ΜiG-35 Fulcrum: News

    Post  Vladimir79 on Sun Aug 02, 2009 12:57 pm

    MOSCOW July 31: The Russian Defense Ministry is considering the possibility of purchasing MiG-35 multi-purpose jet fighters that will be used to equip at least two aviation squadrons.

    “The Russian Air Force plans to have at least 24 MiG-35 state-of- the-art multifunction jet fighters before 2015. The Defense Ministry is currently studying the possibility of concluding a contract to purchase such airplanes,” the Russian ministry’s source in charge of arms purchases told Interfax-AVN on Friday.

    A MiG-35 deal could be signed this year, the source said, adding that the purchase of such airplanes is envisioned in the country’s long- term weapons procurement program.

    United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) President Alexei Fyodorov earlier announced plans to deliver several MiG-35 jet fighters to the Defense Ministry.

    “We continue negotiations with the Defense Ministry regarding the details of such an agreement. Twenty to 30 MiG-35 planes could be sold to the Defense Ministry,” Fyodorov said….The airplane’s unique component is the newest Zhuk-AE active phased array aircraft radar, which allows such planes to track down up to 30 targets simultaneously and to attack six of them that pose the greatest threat simultaneously.

    The MiG-35 jet fighter has a service life of 40 years, or 6,000 flight hours. The maintenance of one such airplane costs nearly half of that of MiG-29 planes.

    Awesome! So we have 48 Su-35BMs, 24 MiG-35s and we are getting 36 MiG-29SMT. Over one hundred modern fighters promised in the next five years. That ought to tide us over until PAKFA comes into production.

    Purchase of MiG-35 significantly increases chances for victory in the Indian MRCA tender
    05.08.2009

    Moscow. 3 August. Interfax-AVN - Russian Defense Decision to buy the new multi-party MiG-35 is an additional advantage of this aircraft in the Indian tender, say in the military-industrial complex (OPK), the Russian Federation.

    "The chances of the MiG-35 to victory in the Indian fighter tender already assessed as high. Today, when it became known that the shipment of aircraft purchased by the Ministry of Defense of Russia, they became even more", - told Interfax-AVN "a source in one of structures involved in arms exports.

    Sobesednik agency noted that the heat of competition in the bidding very high. He has further intensified after the United States signed an agreement with India in defense and arms trade.

    "The goal is that by the end of the year in India will be demonstration flights, including the military use before the tender for the aircraft. In order to participate in these flights of Russian aircraft corporation" MiG "is now preparing two fighter aircraft MiG-35", - said the agency interlocutor .

    He recalled that at the last air show in Bangalore fighter MiG-35 flight tested in a well-known Indian air force pilot retired Marshal Harish Masand. After landing, he said that the MiG-35 is an exceptional handling and maneuverability, which provide the best aerodynamic concept elektrodistantsionnaya and new digital control system aircraft.

    The official tender for the purchase of 126 fighter aircraft of Indian Air Force was announced in August 2007. Under the terms of the tender, which have been approved by the Ministry of Defense of India, the winner will supply the Indian Air Force 18 fighters gathered for their enterprises, the rest should be made directly to the license in India in the corporation HAL.

    Conditions of the tender is not excluded that in future India may order another order of 60-65 aircraft. Calendar lifetime supplied fighters to be about 40 years.

    The total amount of the transaction, according to Indian sources, would be 420 billion rupees (more than $ 10 billion).

    In addition to the Russian MiG-35 taking part in the tender French fighter Rafale (Dassault Aviation), Swedish Gripen (SAAB), the American F/A-18 (Boeing) and F-16 (Lockheed Martin), as well as the European Eurofighter Typhoon (group EADS) .

    As reported, before the end of the year may be awarded the contract for the purchase of Russian military aircraft at least 24 multi-purpose fighter aircraft MiG-35. The purchase of these aircraft provides long-term weapons program until 2015.

    Mikoyan MiG-35 is designed to win victories in air combat and effective application of precision weapons strikes against ground and surface targets, not entering into a zone of air defenses. This machine is a fighter generation "4 + +".

    The cockpit is equipped with a pilot system and the LCD display on the windscreen. It is completely adapted to work at night, including work with the pilot's night vision goggles. Unique components of the MiG-35 is an airborne radar "Zhuk-AE" with an active phased array (AFAR). Accompany the station allows up to 30 targets and simultaneously attack and six of them, representing the greatest danger.

    Hey it´s me again but in this forum now!! haha. Can you tell me how good the mig-35 is? is it better than the u.s f-22 raptor? I sure hope so, and how many airplanes are there in a squadron? i want to know all about russian army, air force, naval forces. Oh and yes in your opinion guys which is better, the sukhoi or the mig companies?... anyway waiting for your opinions anxiously, take care, and Russia is best!!

    Nothing is better than the F-22.

    I sure hope so, and how many airplanes are there in a squadron?

    We don't have squadrons, we have regiments which are 24-30 aircraft

    i want to know all about russian army, air force, naval forces. Oh and yes in your opinion guys which is better, the sukhoi or the mig companies?... anyway waiting for your opinions anxiously, take care, and Russia is best!

    Sukhoi is far and away the better of the two.

    Thirty percent of Russia's MiG-29 was struck by corrosion tail
    20/08/2009

    Corrosion tail Commission found the Air Forces of Russia in 80 percent of MiG-29, standing on the arms. This, as reported by Interfax, said Aug. 19 Acting zamglavkoma Air Force armament, Major-General Oleg Barmin.

    According to the general, in this regard in 2009 is planned to carry out repairs keels at 106 MiG-29 Air Force of Russia. Some machines, as noted Barmin, the military intend to continue to operate "with the periodic monitoring." All of Russia's Air Force is about three hundred MiG-29.

    Checking the aircraft began after the December 5, 2008 five kilometers from the airport "Domna" in the Chita region of Trans-Baikal region crashed MiG-29, which killed the pilot. Earlier in October the same year near Chita similar plane crashed, the pilot who survived. Other victims and the devastation was averted because the car fell into a swampy area about 40 kilometers from the city. According to military, two incidents occurred due to technical reasons.

    In mid-March 2009 Head of Press Service of Russia Air Force Lt. Col. Vladimir Drik said that about 90 MiG-29 fighters rejected during inspections fleet of aircraft. At that time, was examined about two hundred aircraft. Of these, more than a hundred were allowed to fly, and about ninety excluded.

    They should phase out those 60% and modernize other 40% to SMT standard .... nothing else seems logical

    Basically, that is what we are doing, just not as fast as we would like. The purchase of Algeria's returned fighters have helped speed up that process.

    Tnx man. Excellent read.

    Did not know for instance that version of PAK-FA AESA radar will find its way in MIG-35.

    Indeed I will be very disappointed if RuAF did not purchase the Mig-35 in 100 and Mig-29K in equal numbers , both aircraft are quite capable and should not just depend on export market for success.

    The rumors with Indian MMRCA and carried by some news paper is even if Mig-35 looses the MMRCA race the Indian Government will purchase 60 odd Mig-35 outside the MMRCA.

    If the MMRCA is really just a technology grab, then it would make sense for them to go for either the Typhoon or F-18, but both are very very expensive for simply warmed over 4+ gen fighters.
    If they are going to risk a US aircraft then I would think a mix of F-18s and Gripens might actually suit them best from a tech grab point of view.

    Does that mean the US is muscling in on Russian weapon sales to India? ...not really, 20 years ago this contract probably would have just gone to the French for more M2Ks, but seeing as they are not longer an option...

    BTW thanks for those links Austin.

    GarryB the problem is L1 tendering which mean say 5 aircraft meets IAF baseline requirenment then the one that cost lowest will be purchased.

    So if Typhoon is the best technology bet then its not necessary the lowest bidder , L1 tendering and best technology are at logger heads.

    Which is the reason I think the best deal and lowest cost will win the day if the process is followed without political interference.

    Which gives aircraft like Mig-35 and F-16IN a good chance to win.

    Well irrespective of the fate of Mig-35 in MMRCA the RuAF should procure atleast 100 of these and should aggressively export it.

    The problem for the F-16 is that Pakistan already use it.
    And the issue with the Mig-35 is that it will probably replace or supliment the existing Mig-29s anyway.
    The problem is that this has gone on for so long I would expect different people want or expect different things from it, from a way to buy new technology relatively cheaply, to a potential to diversify sources for important items.
    Personally I think reliability wise France and Russia have both shown there are no strings attached in the way India can use the things it buys, so the only reason to diversify is to get a better price. The problem is that in this case buying American or the joint European offering (Typhoon) will get different capabilities but so many strings attached it is not funny.
    When any senator can add extra demands on each order for spares for leverage on India, I really don't think it is worth it to buy from the US...

    I agree regarding the Mig-35 in Russian service, I think it is an excellent jet that will be a very capable machine in the Russian AF. Hopefully current Mig-29 users will take note of the performance increases this model offers and it is ordered in numbers.

    True the problem with American purchase is that it comes with strings attached and some agreement that needs to be signed that so far India has not done.

    Any senator can get up on the wrong side of bed with a bad dream and can come with some conditions that may affects spares , weapons and support.

    But the bright side is we do not learn from past experience and have the habit of coming with wrong decision due to narrow political/personal reasons , so them them buy all the American goods they can and then learn to live with strings attached.

    We have F16 to counter MiG29
    We have JF17 to counter pathetic HAL Tejas & other Indian older MiGs
    ~2011 We will have J10 to counter Su30s( this will giv us tough time I admit it)
    MiG35 hmmmmmmmmmm... we will think latter if India buy lots of those

    Regarding US purchases... we still have our Skyhawks... the US wont let us sell them to a private company in the US made up of former US military personnel that want to set up a training force to be a civilian contractor for the USAF.

    Apparently our A4K skyhawks to too sophisticated for civilian use!!!!!!!!!

    Where Is The MiG-35?

    Post  ahmedfire on Sat Mar 05, 2011 3:28 pm








    No one from Russia, it seems, can give a convincing answer to this very simple question. Earlier last February during the Aero India 2009 exhibition, Mikhail Pogosyan, who presently wears two hats—Director-General of RAC-MiG and Director-General of Sukhoi Corp—had made two interesting revelations: one, that the MiG-35’s single-seat and tandem-seat variants will be rolled from the Nizhny Novgorod-based Sokol Aircraft Plant by August this year; and two, there would be maximum mission systems commonality, inclusive of the AESA radar, between the MiG-35 and the Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) that will be co-developed by India’s Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) and Russia’s United Aircraft Corp (UAC). Both these revelations have since been contradicted with the passage of time. The Indian Air Force (IAF) had expected the roll-out of the single-seat and tandem-seat versions of the MiG-35 latest by mid-October and be made available for a week-long phase of flight evaluations within India later this year, followed by a second round of evaluations (involving test-firings of precision-guided munitions) in Russia within the first quarter of next year. And as for systems commonality, especially pertaining to the AESA radar, it became evident last August that it will be the Zhuk-AE from Phazotron JSC that will go on board the MiG-35, while the FGFA will be equipped with a variant of the MIRES Sh-121 AESA-based multi-mode radar, which is now being developed by Tikhomirov NIIP. The Zhuk-AE AESA which has repeatedly been shown on board the MiG-29M2 No154 M-MRCA (built in 1990) since 2007 is now officially described as being a functional technology demonstrator containing 600 transmit/receive modules, while the definitive series-production variant of the Zhuk-AE will have 1,000 T/R modules. And the MiG-29M2 No154, which has deceptively been painted as the MiG-35 and been used in the past for giving joyrides to some India-based broadcast media journalists and a few IAF pilots, is now being described by RAC-MiG as just a ‘proof-of-concept’ demonstrator!

    It has now emerged that RAC-MiG had built two prototypes of the shipborne MiG-29 as part of the contract to supply 12 MiG-29Ks and four MiG-29KUBs to the Indian Navy. These two prototypes—a tandem-seat MiG-29KUB No947 and a single-seat MiG-29K No941—made their maiden flights in January and June 2007, respectively. (By the way, these two prototypes were the first brand-new MiG-29s to be built by RAC-MiG after a gap of 15 years!) Following the conclusion of the flight certification and weapons qualification phases, the single-seat MiG-29K No941 was and is still being subjected to a modification programme aimed at deriving the definitive single-seat MiG-35. This perhaps explains why RAC-MiG has publicly displayed (during MAKS 2007 and MAKS 2009) the MiG-29KUB No947, but has never even revealed the existence of the Indian Navy-specific MiG-29K No941 to date. It is now believed that the Russian Air Force, as part of a Kremlin-initiated bailout package for debt-ridden RAC-MiG, will place an order for 24 MiG-35s by 2012, while the Russian Navy will procure 24 MiG-29K/KUBs in 2012 to replace the existing Su-33 shipborne combat aircraft.

    According to RAC-MiG, the definitive MiG-35 will have larger wings to accommodate 10 underwing weapon stations, plus a belly-mounted station to house the Novator-built 3M-14AE Kalibr-A subsonic 290km-range air-to-ground land attack cruise missile. To make the MiG-35 a truly network-centric platform RAC-MiG has already initiated industrial participation negotiations with Israel’s SIBAT, plus avionics OEMs from Italy (Finmeccanica/Elettronica) and France (SAGEM for the Sigma-95 RLG-INS, which is also on board the Su-30MKI).

    According to Popovkin Mig-35 will be procured as part of 2011-2020 defence plan , so it does have a future.

    Although the chances that it would win in MMRCA is not that bright , its rated as the least to win by many blogs , although I personally think its a cost effective alternative to increase the numbers in IAF and keep the logistics change to the minimal.

    Hopefully it would win some customers beyond RuAF.

    The model shown at AeroIndia 2011 showed 1.5 ton bombs and Klub air launched cruise missiles... these are things the Gripen cannot carry.

    Plus it had a 5 pylon wing... which is also very new...

    I think a lot of people underestimate the Mig-35.

    I think Indias fleet of Mig-29s would be more flexible with the new 5 pylon wing added at some stage.

    That is a two year old post from trishul blogspot. Ahmed, please don't copy other people's old posts, especially without citing it.

    The answer to the question is in limbo. The production prototype has not been made. The VVS did not order it as was promised. The radar manufacturer for its AESA is held up in bankruptcy court. The factory has not made funding its production line a priority and it didn't show up to the last Aero India.

    Две военных пятилетки
    25.02.2011
    Минобороны рассказало о планах перевооружения России

    ВВС России в 2011 году примут на вооружение около 50 новых самолетов и сто вертолетов. Об этом, как сообщает РИА Новости, заявил заместитель главкома ВВС России генерал-лейтенант Игорь Садофьев. По словам Садофьева, в частности, военным будут поставлены вертолеты Ми-28Н "Ночной охотник", Ка-52 "Аллигатор" и учебные "Ансат". Поставка авиатехники будет осуществляться в рамках госпрограммы вооружений на 2011-2020 годы, объем финансирования которой составит 19 триллионов рублей.

    В конце февраля первый заместитель министра обороны России Владимир Поповкин заявил, что госпрограммой вооружений предусмотрена закупка до 2020 года 600 новых самолетов и тысячи вертолетов. План покупки предусматривает поставку в войска до ста новых вертолетов ежегодно.

    Commentaries

    Two military five-year plans

    25.02.2011
    It described the Ministry of Defense about the plans of the rearmament
    of Russia

    VVS of Russia in 2011 will accept to the armament of approximately 50
    new aircraft and one hundred helicopters.
    On this, as it reports RIA of
    the news, stated the deputy of [glavkoma] VVS of Russia lieutenant
    general Igor [Sadofev]. According to [Sadofeva], in particular, by
    servicemen will be placed the helicopters Mi-28[N] of " Night of
    [okhotnik]" , KA -52 of " [Alligator]" and training of " [Ansat]".
    The
    delivery of aviation engineering will be achieved within the framework
    [gosprogrammy] of armaments during the years 2011-2020, the volume of
    financing the which will be 19 trillion rubles.

    At the end February the first deputy minister of defense of Russia
    Vladimir [Popovkin] stated that [gosprogrammoy] of armaments was
    provided the purchase of the until 2020 600 new aircraft and thousands
    of helicopters. The plan of purchase provides for delivery into the
    troops to hundred new helicopters yearly.
    VVS of Russia must into the
    next ten years obtain fighters T -50 (PACK [FA]), Su-35[S], MiG-35,
    front bombers Su-34 and attack aircraft Su-25[SM], transport workers
    Il-76 and An-70, new attack helicopters Mi-28[N] and Mi-28[NM] of "
    Night of [okhotnik]" , KA -52 of " [Alligator]" , transport- combat
    Mi-8[AMTSh], transport Mi-[MTV], Mi-26 and " [Ansat]".


    At the end 2010 Of [sadofev] declared, which on the whole until 2020 is
    planned to stock up and to modernize about two thousand aircraft and
    helicopters of " with the constantly increasing yearly of [tempom]". In
    this case the share of the modernized technology will compose 400 units.
    Besides the new flight vehicles VVS of Russia will be obtained the
    antiaircraft missile systems S -400, S -500 and " Armor -[S]". In the
    next ten years the Air Force must renew by 80 percent. The renovation of
    technology will be carried out through two directions: modernization
    and the purchase of new machines.

    So they still plan to buy Mig-35s.

    Also interesting they expect to buy 100 helicopters per year for the next 10 years including Mi-28N, Ka-52, and Ansat for this year, but also including Mi-28NM later on... presumably when it is ready.

    Looks to me to be all good news.

    Hope they can manage it.
