    19 March 2016: AN-140 produced by Aviacor in Samara made its first flight
    http://sdelanounas.ru/blogs/75499/

    Both planes are for the Russian Defense Ministry.

    Seems that Ukrainian components are getting through.
    Also note that VK-117 engines for Russian built Mi-8 family helicopters are still coming in from Motor-Sich Ukraine.

    Despite their big anti-Russia talk, the Ukrainians have figured out that their industry cannot survive without their single most important customer: Russia

    Perhaps the engines for the Russian frigates will come too.

    P.S. Russia is now sourcing all VK-2500 helicopter engines (Mi-28 and Ka-52) locally. Eventually (perhaps in a couple of years), all helicopter engines will be produced in Russia... and the Ukrainian engine manufacturing industry (Motor-Sich) will cease to exist.

    Also note that the Ukrainians need Russia to produce their new AN-178 plane (which is a cargo version of the AN-148). About 60-70% of that plane is made of Russian-made components and I don't see the Ukrainian being able to do their own import substitution.
    I guess the Ukrops and the Russians are discreetly collaborating in this field...for the time being.

    NAF should at one point take over Zaporizhia and take over Motor Sich. Ukrappy's deserved to be punished for biting the hand that feeds them!

    NIZHNY NOVGOROD (Sputnik) – Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) plans to double its Sukhoi Superject 100 (SSJ100) plane manufacturing to 40 aircraft per year starting in 2017, UAC President Yury Slyusar said Wednesday.

    "We hope to increase the current Superjet rate of production of 20 airplanes to 40 airplanes in 2017," Slyusar told reporters in the city of Ulyanovsk, where he presented the new managing director of the Aviastar-SP aircraft factory to its workers.

    Aviastar-SP has performed interior installations, including lights, seats and emergency equipment, on the SSJ100 aircraft family since 2012.

    The Superjet 100 is a twin-engine regional passenger airliner, which completed its maiden flight in 2008 and was first commercialized in 2011. The aircraft can transport up to 98 passengers at a distance of up to 2,700 miles, and costs around $36 million in its basic configuration.

    According to the Sukhoi Civil Aircraft company, 64 SSJ100s are currently in operation.

    Thanks Austin... looks like a good issue... I haven't read it yet but that article about the MiG-35 looks interesting... hope they have some details about how the Russian MiG-35 is different from the one offered to India.

    Well, for starters, MiG-35 Zhuk-A has over 1000 t/r modules, and as well a single seater variant besides dual seater. System will have both options.

    Very good picture of the most recent Il-96-300PU:

    What are those 4 rectangles under the body? The previous ones didn't have these. Can it be a part of a missile defense system, probably MAWS or DIRCM?

    Su-100 is being made and sold at a decent pace. Getting 100 of them for a single customer would take quite a while since there are other buyers waiting for delivery.

    When you have secured market then it is not so problematic to increase production rate

    Any updated pics on how the MS-21 is coming along?
    I seem to recall that it was going to be rolled out in June, but I'm speaking from memory here and may be wrong.
    If it is June, then the big event is almost upon us.

    Papadragons post above from a month ago shows the wings and fuselage mated together, so I'm assuming a whole lot of other stuff has been completed since then.
