    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.

    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.

    • All systems of the aircraft MiG-35 are of Russian development and production, including the the inertial system and helmet-mounted target designation system.


    • Serial purchases of the MiG-35 multirole fighter under the state arms procurement program will begin in 2019, President of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) Boris Slyusar said Thursday.

    • He added that a presentation of the MiG-35 for potential foreign buyers will be held on January 27.

    So this settles wierd debate from the start about 30 or so MiG-35  Laughing  Laughing  Laughing

    Also on Thursday, attending a demonstration flight of the fighter during a meeting of the Military-Industrial Commission, President Vladimir Putin clarified that upon the successful completion of state trials, the Aerospace Defense Forces will order their first batch of 30 MiG-35s, and will purchase 140 more in the coming years in order to completely upgrade Russia's fleet of light frontline aviation aircraft.

    Do they have a double luncher rail for missiles in Russia ? Like those we can see on F-15 which can carry 2 AAMRAM. There is space between the engine and the first pylon on mig-35 for 2 (even 3) R-77 instead of 1 which coud bring the total load to 8 R-77 + 2 R-73

    Not to my knowledge. There are few variants of "grape" holders for bombs, but even those are actually very rare in RuaF service.
