    Russia will modernize its Su-35S fighter jets with due account for their performance in the ongoing operation in Syria, Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said. Aviation expert Viktor Pryadka told Sputnik what remains to be done to make the Su-35S “perfect for export.”

    “We might even hold up its state trials until we are sure that all the defects have been fixed,” Borisov said during a visit to the Gagarin Aviation Plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur.

    He said that during the early stages of their use in Syria, the planes used to suck in small pebbles and small debris from the runway during takeoff, and also had problems with the searchlight and computer screens, all of which have since been addressed and rectified.

    Sputnik is usually garbage.

    I don't think there are anymore defects but they are clearly hinting at major upgrades to it that they may be looking at to upgrade existing and future order Su-35. Makes sense since real world tests showed possibilities of improvement. But then again the Su-35 is supposed to be a air superiority jet and not intended to be a Su-30. So they may be trying too hard to be like US and have a everything jet. Which isn't good.

    We will see.

    Its de facto a multirole jet since it can carries every missiles that russia produce and targeting pods. With the powers of modern computers any upgrade of old bird would make them multirole. Every new fighter will have air to ground capabilities. The only point where it is not well suited for multi role is that it's a single seat. For dangerous missions it's better to have a pilot looking for air threats and a second guy doing the job.

    I don't think they found improvement possibilities but errors that occures when the jet are used more often than in training. Unless they use Pak Fa technologes for a big upgrade, I don't think they will upgrade them. Moreover if the Pak Fa isn't too expensive they will stiop buying Su-35, same with Mig-35 if the new Mig 5 gen fighter is cheap enough to buy it instead of the 35.

    The issue of the engines is not a real issue. Engine need air to go in them, if the airfield runway isn't clean it will suck dust and other objects, it's the same with every aircraft.

    Old computer chips were so slow you pretty much made dedicated electronics for a specific role.

    A good example is a calculator... very slow electronics but for what it does it is generally as fast as you would need.

    The problem is that it is only good for what it was designed for and upgrades are neither possible or necessary.

    With more modern computer components you occasionally upgrade parts but most of the new capabilities is adding new sensors at the end... ie plug and play addons like new printers and scanners or USB sticks etc for a computer... new guidance pods or jammer pods, or tactical recon pods etc etc for aircraft.

    Generally you don't add new hardware now, you just add new drivers for the new hardware and adapt existing software to allow effective use of new hardware.

    Multirole capability is just a software update away for a modern fighter.

    Another ting to "modernize" is the lack of targeting pod on su-35. Does it really can't carry them ? What Russia has to offer as modern targeting pods ? WWhat about Su-30 and 34 ?

    Seriously, for the love of god you idiots, stop using national interest. Fuck.

    Anyway, Su-34 has a built in optical system. Su-30 can use its IRST for ground strikes and same with Su-35. Next to its radar as well. There have been various targeting pods from Russia to show, the newest one is the one used for PAK FA.

    Now stop using national interest. It is a US publication used for bullshitting horrendously. You guys using it flood this already degraded forums with such nonsense.

    It doesn't matter. it is all the same funding if you catch my drift. In other words, US propaganda if you are not aware.

    As I said, Platan has a thermal/TV imaging component. This has been proven for long time now.

    Interesting photos of Su-35 with twin launchers for R-77-1 on pylons between engines and with new targeting pod under the right engine. It also have mock up Kh-35U anti-ship missile under the wing.

    That's exactly what I suggested for Mig-35. Maybe they are following our ideas in sukhoi Shocked Shocked I want my money for my idea bounce

    Still a fake for me. There are hundreds of people and amateurs who film at Maks the presentation, can you found a video of this but where you see the public and not just the plane. Specially for the part at 2:01 where it goes from 0km/h to a high speed while climbing ? If it's true then they don't need runway for take-off.

    A longer video of the one posted above with the ground and houses visible at the beginning. Apparently it was a rehearsal flight.  There are other videos with other planes (pakfa included) taken from the same place, also doing rehearsals i'm guessing.

    Some info about this new targeting pod


    Suspended container of target designation T220 on the Su-35S fighter

    At the ground-based exposition at the Zhukovsky International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2017, the Su-35S Combat Fighter (registration number "24 red", registration number RF-95816) was demonstrated at the ground-level exposition, which was equipped with a rich set of pendant missile guided weapons, Container of target designation T220 (before that the given board with the onboard number "24 red" "lit up" in flights on the eve of the air show, with suspension of model controlled missiles X-35U and X-38M class "air-surface"). Container T220, developed by JSC "Scientific and Production Corporation" Precision Instrument-Making Systems "(JSC NPK SPP, Moscow), is demonstrated for the first time on a Su-35S fighter.

Zhukovsky, July 2017 (with) VKontakte


    Also on this Su-35S fighter with the number "24 red" (who took part in the fighting in Syria) the MAX-2017 for the first time publicly demonstrated the ventilated two-beam launcher of the RVV-SD medium-range air-to-air missiles.

A ventral double-girder launcher for guided RVV-SD medium-range air-to-air missiles is clearly visible. Zhukovsky, July 2017 (with) VKontakte

    The targeting pods electronics are the same ones used on the MiG-35 electronic optical systems we have all seen flown.

    I think they will all use the same targeting pod. I hope they will be soon delivered to operational units and that Su-30SM in Syria will be the first to receive them together with new ECM pods. Su-35 in Syria should be next to receive targeting pods.

    Have you seen some of the MiG-29OVT videos...

    This is an Su-35 with no external weapons, so no drag, and likely with enough fuel for the flight so 20% fuel or less in its fuel tanks... its thrust to weight ratio will be 1.5 or better... of course it flys well.
