    Russian Air Force Received 12 Su-35 Fighter Jets in 2013

    KOMSOMOLSK-ON-AMUR, December 25 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s Sukhoi aircraft maker delivered a total of 12 advanced Su-35 multirole fighters to the Russian air force this year, the air force commander said Wednesday.

    The Russian Defense Ministry ordered 48 Su-35s in 2009. The final deliveries are due in 2015.

    “We received 12 [Su-35] aircraft this year in addition to 10 delivered earlier,” Lt. Gen. Viktor Bondarev said.

    Bondarev said that under the contract with Sukhoi, the air force would receive 12 Su-35 fighter jets next year and 14 aircraft in 2015.

    The Su-35s will be based at the Dzemga airbase in Russia’s Far East, he said.

    The Su-35 Flanker-E is a heavily upgraded derivative of the Su-27 multirole fighter. It has been touted as "4++ generation using fifth-generation technology."

    The aircraft, powered by two 117S turbofans with thrust-vectoring, features high maneuverability and the capability to engage several air targets simultaneously.

    12 Su-35s delivered.


    The most important news. All Su-35 have been delivered before the end of year and despite some newspaper reports that said that there could be delays in deliveries. 

    If Pogosyan said 12 Su-35 will be delivered in 2013 than who are little journalists to question his authority  Very Happy

    I wonder, does that mean they're replacing the oldest Su-27SMs?

    Intersting. This Su-35 was back in the shop for some work, and we can see the results.

    See the parts still in primer?

    Was painted before, so clearly they needed to remove/work on them.

    Vadim, the guy who took the pic seems to suggest this is a new 07, (part of the 12 handed over to the Dzemgi regiment most likely?) not the old 07 we know from Le Bourget, MAKS etc... Very Happy Curiously, the primer sections almost all cater for avonics antennas etc...maybe there was a delay in getting those avionics from the suppliers?

    Hmm, interesting.

    System delivery delay was the suspected reason for the last batch being delayed right?

    I thought flooding was initially mentioned as a reason for the delays some time back? Anyway, things are moving so far so that's good. Very Happy

    Is there an option, that Su-35 get DIRCM complex 101KS-O, which is placed in PAK-FA or its equivalent?

    Would hope so.

    Have heard the Su-35 is basically going to be a non stealthy PAK FA variant with external stores capacity... which in my opinion will give them an excellent fighter bomber without the greatest strength of stealth fighters (ie stealth) but also without their weaknesses... cost and limited payload and restrictive payload limitations (ie internal size constraints).

    Although both are very capable multi-role fighters, they'll probably end up working together coordinating strike formations, where the Su-35 will be more and more dedicated to saturating ground targets with ordinance, and PAK-FA's would be more and more dedicated to the air-superiority role, defending the Su-35's against F-22's and F-35's.

    The other option is to use the Su-35s flying high and relatively slow with the PAK FA flying higher and faster (supercruising) and closer to the enemy with the Su-35s blasing away with their radars scanning for targets, with any targets getting their coordinates passed on to the radar and radio silent PAK FAs.

    Detected targets might be fired upon by Flankers or PAK FAs with the Flankers revealling their positions but also detecting lots of targets.

    The PAK FAs will be radar and radio silent so any energy reflected to their radars off stealth targets from the Flankers radar emissions coming from otherwise empty space could be used to detect enemy stealth aircraft in X band or the Flankers could detect stealth targets in L band directly and pass that data on to the still radar and radio silent PAK FA.

    This would offer a screen of protection around the Flankers yet allow the Flankers to use their powerful radars and long range weapons and also the PAK FA can operate using its radars to listen and also operate quietly using their stealth to avoid the attention of the enemy.

    Their sensor suits are actually completely different; while potent the Su-35C as of today does not approach the T-50.

    Su-35 is still excellently equipped for air defense fighter. Equipping it with DIRCM will improve its survivability, but more important will be to integrate new small short range missiles for self defense against incoming AAMs and SAMs. Carrying 4 to 8 such missiles (2 per pylon) will be enough to shot down all AMRAAMs, Meteors, IRIS-T, etc missiles, which F-35 or F-22 could launch against it or Rafale and Eurofighter. In dogfight stealth will not play any significant role.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, isn't true that the Su-35 is the only jet fighter in the world that is mass produced with 3D-TVC engines.

    I don't think it's being 'mass produced' as of yet - it's still undergoing testing, although production is increasing.
    Is the F-35 considered being mass produced at the moment?
