    JANES: Airshow China 2016: Russia unveils new AESA radar for MiG-35 fighter

    http://www.janes.com/article/65271/airshow-china-2016-russia-unveils-new-aesa-radar-for-mig-35-fighter

    Russia's Fazotron-NIIR Corporation (a subsidiary of the KRET Concern) has developed a new active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar for the Mikoyan MiG-29/35 ('Fulcrum') multirole fighter.



    The radar, the Zhuk-AMEh, was unveiled at the Airshow China 2016 aerospace exhibition, held in Zhunhai from 1 to 6 November.

    The Zhuk-AMEh can track up to 30 targets and can simultaneously attack up to six aerial and four ground targets, a Russian defence industry source told IHS Jane's at Airshow China.

    "The jam-resistant radar works even in the harshest climatic conditions and contested areas. The Zhuk-AMEh can detect enemy targets in air-to-air and air-to-ground modes synchronically, identify and track both single and group targets, attack several objects with high-precision munitions, transfer acquired data to other aircraft, and conduct electronic warfare," the source said.

    "The receivers and transmitters of the Zhuk-AMEh have been manufactured by LTCC [low-temperature co-fired ceramic] technologies," the source continued, adding, "They are installed on lightweight ceramic plates that allow the AESA a width reduction of 10 cm [with power sources and control elements]. The radar is comprised of three units, namely the AESA radar, a processing unit, and a composer."

    The capabilities of the Zhuk-AMEh have been improved by 50% compared with previously developed variants of the Zhuk radar. "At present, a MiG-29 fighter can detect an aerial target at 180 km," the source said, "while the Zhuk-AMEh increases this range to 260 km."

    The source added that the new radar weighs about 100 kg and has received a certificate that enables it to be exported.

    Not sure abou the numbers.

    With the same fuel capacities, Mig-35 has better results. Too bad they didn't increased the number of hardpoints before presenting it to India, so it could use more fuel tanks and targeting pods, guided bombs, like we can see on western fighters.

    Chinese and Swedish however loses hard.
    Some numbers there seems me completely different from what was reported in other sources.
    Mig-31 carry surely more fuel than that, same MiG-35 while Su-35 weight more than 18.000kg.

    Nice thumbsup

    Now they outclass F-15s and F-16. Hope they will adapt PakFa's missiles for the mig-35. I've read the new izdeliye 180 will have 200 km range. The 260km estimation is for 3-5m² rcs target, F-15's RCS is 15-20m², so they could use them at their max potential. If they could put the Meteor for export version it will give a terrible aircraft.

    According to this article, confirms that the order for the 16 new Mig-29SMT will finish being delivered this year. Not sure from the article if they stay at Astrakhan or go to Armenia as originally talked about.

    Probably not one nor the other would be decisive at all, the hype about the type of radar antenna a plane got is a typical idola fori to say it in Francis Bacon's term.
    F-15 has bigger radar than Fulcrums and smaller than Flankers and Foxhound, as soon as they both keep the pace in their respective upgrades equation wouldn' t change so much.
    In the other hand, F-15C frames are all very, very old and the same could be said of the 90% of F-15E in US service while the Mig-35 are still to be produced.

    As far as I am aware the new R-37M or RVV-BD in the export designation are to be used on all new Russian fighter and interceptor aircraft... so PAK FA, Su-35 and MiG-35.

    A 280km range AAM able to engage 9g targets would be a potent weapon against enemy forces... particularly AWACS and tanker aircraft as well as troop transports and JSTARS like aircraft...

    Cs will serve into 2030s, and Es into 2040s tho. Cs were produced, at least these still around, from 1982-1985, which ends up being more or less similar to the age of many Su-24s, Su-27s and MiG-31s around.

    Yes but their RCS is huge. Mig achieved a big reduction of the rcs on the Mig-35 compared to the mig-29. So their capabilities are pretty much the same if they are opposed. High speed High altitude, they will detect each other at longer distances than their missile's range. So the first to shoot is the one with the missiles which have longer range.

    R-37M is a very big missile, I don't think Mig-35 could carry lot of them ... However they can target fighters, it wasn't the case of the R-33 I think.

    The MiG-35 has been pictured in models with 2,000ltr fuel tanks and 1,500kg bombs so an AAM that might be 600 or 700kgs should not be too big a problem.

    Most photos I have seen of advanced MiGs often show an R-27ER or R-27ET on the inner pylon as a longer range missile plus R-77s and R-73s so i suspect the R-33M might go on the inner pylon for use against important long range targets like AWACS or JSTARS...

    Flight tests of Russia's fourth-generation MiG-35 jets will get underway next month, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Friday.

    The Russian Mikoyan MiG-35 (Fulcrum-F) jet fighter is a further development of the MiG-29M/M2 and MiG-29K/KUB. The first batch of the test version was initially expected to be handed to the Russian Defense Ministry by year-end.

    "We plan to [perform flight tests of] the MiG-35 light targeted fighter in January 2017," Rogozin said on a visit to the Fakel machine-building design bureau near Moscow.

    Appears the new Mig-29SMT squadron at Astrakhan is fully equipped and operational. Further they don't appear to be going anywhere. Originally it was reported the new 29SMT's would be going to Armenia.

    Not surprising. Their area of responsibility will be Caspian region, for which they are good enough. I would expect they will buy some more to complete whole regiment of 24 fighters with 20 single seaters and 4 twin seaters.

    Any photo of new twin seater MiG-35? We could see only single seater b/n 702.

    Comment bmpd. Thus, all 16 new single MiG-29SMT (type "9-19R", sometimes referred as the MiG-29SMT(R)), produced for the Russian Defense Ministry by the contract signed in April 2014, by the PJSC "United Aircraft Corporation", which includes JSC "RAC" MiG ", came in the 116th training Center of combat employment of the 185th combat training center and combat use of fighter aircraft at the airport of VKS Russia in Volga in the Astrakhan region.

    Production of the MiG-29SMT under this contract carried by RAC "MiG" production complex number 2 (the former factory "Banner of Labor") in Moscow, with additional equipment and flyby at the production complex number 1 in Lukhovitsy (Moscow region). The first four MiG-29 SMT (fighters with blue hull numbers "20", "21", "22" and "23") were built under this contract in 2015 and came in the 116th Training Centre of combat employment on 15th December 2015. The remaining 12 aircraft (blue hull numbers from "24" to "35") were commissioned in 2016 and entered the Volga to the end of the year.

    It should be noted that in addition, in 2015 contract for the Russian Defence Ministry, two new double combat training MiG-29UB were built in the modified performance "9-53R" (sometimes designated MiG-29UBM) by JSC "Nizhny Novgorod Aircraft building plant" Sokol "(now the branch of JSC" RAC "MiG"). Both of these aircraft with blue hull numbers "50" and "51" also entered the 116th combat Training center in December 2015.



    http://bmpd.livejournal.com/2356334.html

    So we have 16xMiG-29SMT and 2xMiG-29UBM delivered russia

    Russia's MiG-35 fighter jet about to start flight test campaign

    The flight tests of the Mikoyan MiG-35 (NATO reporting name: Fulcrum-F) will begin in January 2017, Russian Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin has said while visiting the Fakel Plant, a subsidiary of Almaz-Antei Corp. "We expect the MiG-35 multirole fighter to fly in January 2017," the vice-premier said. "Mikoyan has not built new planes for a while."

    He reminded that there have been numerous MiG-29 versions, including the carrierborne MiG-29K/KUB.

    "I would say that it [aircraft production] is a very profitable business even from the economic viewpoint, let alone national defense, because it is light fighter jets that feature the highest exportability," Rogozin emphasized. "Therefore, we are making no secret of our intention to compete with our rivals in this market segment."

    The deputy prime minister also said the Ilyushin Il-112V light airlifter would conduct its maiden flight in 2017 too by order President Vladimir Putin.

    "All relevant decisions have been made for the plane needed by the Russian Armed Forces featured a considerable advantage based on Russian solutions," Rogozin noted. "It is the Russian-made TV7-117ST engine that will power it."

    According to him, the development of the engine designed to equip the Il-112V paves the way for developing the Il-114-300 short-haul turboprop aircraft to be powered by a TV7-117-family engine too.

    Why will state tests last until 2020? Hasnt the MiG-35 already been tested enough in the last 7 years? This sounds like more worthless delays.

    All new technology and previous aircraft were modified Mig-29's. In fact even the design has changed over the original plans for the Mig-35.

    Even if it's a new design the airframe is the same and is well known so the test will go fast, the test of the avionics however will go normally.

    They still need to test the engine and avionics for pak fa. Till today they don't have the engine and all the test with the prototypes were made for testing structure and materials. Some were made for testing the radar but they are far away from the final Pak Fa they want.
