If all that they claimed were going to be built this year was, then there should be 20 30M2, 48 35S and 48 30SM. Confirmed deployments:
Su-30M2 - Uglovaya (4), Belbek (4), Krimsk (6). Possibles are Dzemgi and Besovets
Su-30SM - Domna (24), Dzemgi (4), Millerovo ( 8 ), Akhtubinsk (2). Irtutsk plant has 10 which will be transferred by end of January to Millerovo.
Su-35S - Dzemgi (26), Akhtubinsk (6), Lipetsk (4). That leaves 12 of which 4 flew West but their final destination was not determined. I suspect there is some shuffling around of aircraft so that those first manufactured may be retrofitted to whatever was the standard when final certification was awarded in November. Two of the aircraft at Dzemgi were just transferred to Uglovaya.
