    The SMTs in Russian service also use the grey color.

    The reason for the color was because it supposedly is the least stressful on the eyes in the cockpit environment. Something about not being able to focus on the color itself, but on the instruments between the background.

    Excellent news. It seems Su-35 production is now quite fast, one per month. So they could build one squadron per year.

    Deliveries until 2015 provided today by Pogosyan

    2012 - 8 Su-35S
    2013 - 12 Su - 35S
    2014 - 12 Su - 35S
    2015 - 14 Su - 35S

    And that account for 48 ordered after witch I hope will go follow on order.

    Together with Su-34 gaining momentum I RuAF will each year get more and more of

    those deadly birds.

    Hmm. I was hoping for something close to 20 per year. Hopefully rates increase after the 1st batch is completed. And hopefully the second batch is doubled. 96 is not enough.

    Agree, but as Su-35BM export potential begins to bare fruits production of 20 per

    year is somewhat of a minimum.

    If India decides to buy some or Vietnam/Venezuela together with 2015 aftermath

    Russian orders even 50+ per year would not be unthinkable as Su-30 production

    wanes.

    Sukhoi Corporation will deliver 46 Su-35S fighters in accordance with the State defense order by 2015

    Sukhoi Corporation will deliver 46 Su-35S fighters in accordance with the State defense order by 2015, RIA Novosti reports.

    As noted by the president of United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), Mikhail Pogosyan, while demonstrating stands, containing information about Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Production Association, to Vladimir Putin, the enterprise should deliver 48 such jets to the air forces. Two of them have already been delivered to the Ministry of Defense last year.

    He also said that it is planned to manufacture eight Su-35S aircraft this year, 12 ones in 2013, 12 – in 2014 and 14 – in 2015.

    At that, Pogosyan leaves open the possibility that KnAAPO will deliver more than eight jets this year. "Eight Su-35S jets are scheduled for this year, but we are currently elaborating the agreed facilities and we may deliver more aircraft this year", - he said.

    Speaking of the enterprise’s activities, the president of UAC said that the revenues of KnAAPO will increase to 30 billion rubles by 2015 (as compared to 24 billion in 2012). In addition, Pogosyan noted that 16 billion rubles should be allocated for technical retooling of KnAAPO in accordance with development program of military-industrial complex.

    There was a model of Su-35BM I sow carring 4 x R-77 in between engines. If thats possible for real that would be something making difference.

    That is a good find... I have read about twin R-77 attachments for the centre line of the Flanker but have never even seen a drawing let alone a model.

    The attachment required to carry an R-77 on a pylon includes a ram arm that throws the missile downwards on launch and after a fraction of a second delay the motor lights up and the missile flies towards its target.

    This twin launcher would need two ram arms with one for each missile to ensure when the weapons are fired they clear the engines and aircraft body before starting their engines.

    The R-77 is designed so that its rear grid fins can be folded forward for internal carriage and I suspect that to be able to fit two missiles side by side between the engines of a Flanker they will need to fold the grid fins too.

    If that is the case then I suspect that the under engine nacelle weapon hard points could probably have two R-77s as well.

    With its new multiple target engagement capacity it makes more sense to carry more missiles now, and develop multiple weapon carrying pylon attachments.

    Russia to buy 90 brand-new Su-35S fighters

    By 2020, the Russian Air Force is to procure some 90 cutting-edge super-maneuverable Su-35S fighter jets, Air force spokesman Vladimir Drik told Ria-Novosti today.

    The Su-35S is a highly modernized version of the Su-27SM3 aircraft, which will replace the world-famous Su-27 planes, as well as the bulk of its modifications now deployed with the Russian air fleet, he said.

    Does this mean that Russia is going to buy 90 more Su-35's ( in addition to the ones they have previously ordered ), or is that 90 Su-35s in total by 2020?

    It is not an actual contract, just intent to buy another batch after this one is done. Idea was floated a while ago too, this is just good confirmation.
