    How come there are basically no images of Su-35 with wingtip jammer pods? I remember seeing just one, back from the testing phase days. Couldn't decide if those were SAP-518 or older model.

    So, question is: is there a source confirming SAP518 on active duty Su35 in RuAF? Or are there (multiple) images of active duty Su-35 with such pods?

    So do they actually dismount the missile rail to mount those jammer pods or is there some variety in the build where some have it & others have missile rails?

    Well Belarus MIC has developed jamming pods that retain the missile rail, so it's not impossible to do the same here...however its as you say. For them to keep the jamming pods they would have to sacrifice the wing-tip mounts.

    On one hand that seems odd: it's a lot of effort to put them on vs Western ones being mounted on rails as quick as any normal weapon.
    On the other hand removing the weight of the rails means you can get a heavier/more capable pod within the same weight limit & cleaner aerodynamically.

    Thank you for your reply! I quoted just one image for brevity's sake. Can anyone point out the noticeable exterior differences between sps171 pods and sap518, so i can tell them apart? Is it the lack of cooling duct on the inner side? And lack of upper/lower side extruded line connecting both tips of the pod?

    Is there any image of Su-35 with external tanks? Those have been mentioned in the past, and even UAC website offers data on range with them (mentioning two 2000 L tanks) - but have they ever actually been put on a Su35 and tested? Have they been integrated? Is there a single image of the plane with them?

    Airshow China 2016: KRET showcases new technologies

    http://www.janes.com/article/65274/airshow-china-2016-kret-showcases-new-technologies

    Russian electronic systems manufacturer Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies (KRET) showcased a number of its emerging technologies and systems at Airshow China 2016 in Zhuhai.

    More than 40 products were featured during the event, including the RSUO weapon management system and Irbis-E radar-control system for the Sukhoi Su-35 'Flanker' combat aircraft; the OEPrNK-30SM electro-optical (EO) sighting and navigation system for the Su-30-series; the BINS-SP2 inertial navigation system (INS); the Zhuk-AME FGA50 active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar; a small-sized multifunctional Ka- and X-band digital radar; Arbalet-D, SIVPV-52 aerometric data recording and processing system; and the President-S defensive aids for helicopters

    As noted by the company, the RSUO weapon management system for the Su-35 aircraft has "special-purpose" hardware to identify the types of weapons aboard the aircraft and control their employment. The Irbis-E radar-control system for all exportable Su-35s will provide detection, tracking, and co-ordinate measurement of air, land, and sea targets during the day and at night, as well as in all weather conditions. It can also function in jamming environments. Other Su-35 systems being promoted included electronic countermeasures and flare-dispensing, and Hands-On Throttle and Stick (HOTAS) functionality. It is likely that all of these systems will equip the 24 Su-35 fighters that Russia agreed in 2015 to supply to China.

    KRET also showcased its OEPrNK-30SM EO sighting and navigation system as part of the Su-30-series avionics. It includes systems for flight and navigation, optical location, helmet-mounted targeting, weapons control, and information displays, as well as an onboard digital computer. OEPrNK-30SM works with the aircraft's radar sighting system to direct precision weapons to the target using heat-seeking and laser rangefinder capabilities.

    The BINS-SP2 INS is designed to simultaneously generate and display autonomous inertial, hybrid, and satellite data via separate channels, and can function via the GPS or GLONASS systems. BINS-SP2 enables fighter aircraft to navigate in the absence of satellite, land-based, or offshore navigation systems.

    Apparently Besovets will be the home of the 4th and 5th squadrons of the Su-35S to be formed. The first two are based in Dzemgi and the third in Uglovaya.

    Seem to be there is a new antenna on Su-35s spine that is black and located between the atenna of radiocompass and atenna of S-108 data-link. Is that one for new installed "transfer" network system on Su-35s and Su-27SM3?

    4 Su-35S arrived at Besovets with red hull numbers "54", "55", "56" and "57" of new construction of Komsomolsk-on-Amur aviation plant. it was reported that on December 1, from Komsomolsk-on-Amur flew 6 new Su-35S with red hull numbers from "54" to "59", have committed, in particular, the intermediate landing in Novosibirsk and Perm, but the planes with on-board numbers "58" and "59" it is reported that they will arrive in Besovets later than the end of year.

    The first four fighters made under the contract with the red hull numbers from "50" to "53", were handed over to Russian Air Force in early November 2016, and, although the aircraft, apparently, are formal part of the 159 th Regiment, they proceeded directly from the factory in the Russian aviation group in Syria, arrived at the Syrian airbase Hmeymim on November 21st.

    So 8 in total delivered for 2016. 2 more expected before the end of the year. russia

    ^

    That is interesting why send four new 35's to Syria the base already is well stocked on aircraft. Are they preparing for some massive bombing campaign or seeking to expand their ability.

    The four there came back home. It was a switch out.

    I am pretty sure they will want to test fixes and new weapons and systems and tactics, so swapping aircraft in and out makes sense.

    Also sending in new air crews means more crews get operational experience in a real war zone which is also enormously valuable too.

    Do we have evidence of the 35s dropping ordnance over Syria? Pics?

    Do we need evidence of such?

    There were reports from their first deployment in Syria that there were some issues needing fixing with the Su-35... I rather suspect it had nothing to do with weapons use and were probably operational issues. Solutions for such issues need to be tested to ensure the solution does fix the problems and does not inadvertently create others.

    The EW equipment on the Su-35 could be getting tested in proximity with the air forces of several hostile nations in the region without anything that could be photographed being used.
