    Su-35 is being tested for tactical employment

    The latest multi-role Su-35 fighter is being tested for tactical employment in the network of its state testing, RIA Novosti reports with reference to the official representative of Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD RF), Air Forces, Colonel Vladimir Drik.

    The state testing of multi-role super-maneuverable Su-35 fighter is underway in State Proving Flying Center (SPFC) of MoD RF named after Chkalov. Over 650 flights have already been performed in the network of the flight test program. "The flight testing of Su-35 with real tactical employment is currently being performed", - Drik said.

    The pilots of SPFC have earlier performed flights aimed at assessment of aircraft performance, durability, stability and aircraft sensitivity, the work of its powerplant and avionics.

    Important ground and flight tests for functional checking of command information system, communication system, navigation and radar system have also been completed. "The testing of this vehicle is being carried out in accordance with the program of state testing. Following the results of the completed stage of Su-35’s state joint testing it is planned to obtain the customer’s preliminary advice in October, which allows delivering the jets to flying units in accordance with plans for 2012", - Drik said.

    Su-35 will become the prime fighter of the air forces, he added. Russian air forces will acquire the first six Su-35s in 2012. The Ministry of Defense intends to purchase about 90 Su-35 fighters by 2020.

    I hope those 2 Su-35, which they got early this year are not counted in those 6 planes, they will get this year.

    They didn't deliver any su-35 yet. These 2 were on testing as the next 6. They are gong to deliver 8 this year.

    KNAAPO release nice pictures of new Su-35 planes. I personally more like traditional two tone blue color, but even gray one is not that bad.

    The 902 prototype cammo is the best. Whoever decided on the new cammo must be colour blind...at least this one is OK compared to the Su-34 & Su-25

    I think it would be ideal if they could produce 15 of each Su-35, Su-34 and Su-30 per year

    Is there some document or newsbit published by the manufacturer of radar, the plane or the end user (RuAF) concerning the presence of L-band radar on serial su-35? Ever since the presentation of that radar the news about it kind of dwindled. Any official news about it?

    Hi, the knaapo booklet of the Su 35 shows, that it can carry 4 x RVV-AE at the centerline hardpoints, while all other Flankers so far only carried 2. It most likely should be twin pylons, but was such a configuration tested yet?

    So far the R-77 has only be used on conventional wing pylons on aircraft like the Su-30MKI and Mig-29C and Mig-29SMT and Su-30SM and Su-27SM etc etc.

    With development of the PAK FA, they will likely have further changed the rear grid fins to fold forward for internal stowage, which they were originally designed for. With their rear grid fins folded forward they are much more compact weapons and twin rails between the standard Flanker body should be fairly straight forward to impliment.

    Note that the launch rail for the R-77 has a pneumatic arm that throws the missile down and away from the aircraft during launch before the missiles rocket motor is started. It was originally designed to allow the weapon to be launched from an internal weapon bay, but would be just as useful throwing the missiles down from the centreline of a Flanker away from the aircraft so the fins could deploy and the motor start up clear of the aircraft.

    Note the R-33 and R-37M use a similar system to throw them down and clear of the belly of the Mig-31 for a clean separation at launch too, so the RVV-BD will likely have a similar launch capacity... including from the centreline of Mig-29s and Flankers too.

    Good news!!!

    Russian Air Force Gets First Six Su-35S Fighter Jets

    MOSCOW, December 28 (RIA Novosti) – The Sukhoi aircraft maker delivered on Friday the first six Su-35S fighter jets to the Russian Air Force, the company said.

    The acceptance documents were signed by Defense Ministry officials at the Komsomolsk-on-Amur aircraft manufacturing plant in Russia’s Far East.

    “The Sukhoi holding has fulfilled its obligations on the delivery of this type of aircraft under the 2012 state defense order,” the company said in a statement.

    “The fighter jets will fly to their designated home base in the near future,” the statement said.

    The Su-35, powered by two 117S engines with thrust vectoring, combines high maneuverability and the capability to effectively engage several air targets simultaneously using both guided and unguided missiles and weapon systems.

    The aircraft has been touted as "4++ generation using fifth-generation technology."

    The Russian Defense Ministry is planning to buy about 90 Su-35s, which will gradually become the core of Russia’s fighter jet fleet.

    Its nice to see Su-34/35/30SM/YAK-130 being delivered as planed.

    I thing Navy has fallen behind something but that too will it to will in a matter of few years consolidate its production in timely manner.

    So far, no. Surprising since the Su-35 is so promising. But who knows whats going on.

    We see Su-35 in production in KNAAPO from previous reports and some were already painted. Maybe they wait for Christmas that Santa deliver them.

    We will see deliveries either by New Years, or one-two months after. Not a serious delay, but I imagine it had something to do with the flooding.
