    Guys,
    are you able to list all the serial numbers and/or bort numbers of Su-35S planes that have been involved in Syria deployment?
    All I know is that:
    the first rotation involved Red 03 (s/n 49083502517), Red 04 (s/n 49083502518), Red 05 (s/n 49083502519) and Red 06 (s/n 49083502520)
    the second rotation involved Red 50 (s/n 49083503309), Red 51 (s/n 49083503310), Red 52 (s/n 49083503311) and Red 53 (s/n 49083503312).

    What about later rotations?

    I just find new and interesting images in Google Maps:


    Yekaterinburg - Kotlsovo Airport  : 32 OTSAP  (separate composite transport aviation regiment)

    We can see the most of the regiment assets parked in the regiment place at the same time:

    https://www.google.com/maps/@56.7478645,60.8256617,260m/data=!3m1!1e3

    there are:

    Let's see new satellite images and photos of the Migalovo air base in Tver

    Migalovo is the main base of Military Transport Aviation (VTA, in russian: BTA)


    In this base there are the next units:


    ● Command and Headquarters of Military Transpot Aviation (KVTA)
    ● Squadron of Headquarters (BKhAT, in russian БХАТ КВТА). This unit has a couple of An-12 , 3 An-26 and one Tu-134 (Chief of VTA)
    In the satellite we can see this airplanes in the north-west área of the aerodrome:  https://www.google.es/maps/@56.8357923,35.7433829,404m/data=!3m1!1e3


    ● Headquarters of 224 LO (Flying Group - with a civil lisense for fly out Russia bypassing the western limits to russian military aircrafts)
    ● Detachment of 224 LO with Il-76MD
    224 LO has detachments of several Il-76MD in Tver, Pskov , Taganrog, Orenburg and Ulyanovsk. In total at least 16  Il-76MD
    Also 224 LO has a squadron of 8 An-124-100 based in Sescha (566 VTAP is in reserve with the not modernizaed An-124)


    ● Headquarters of 12º VTAD ( VTA División)
    ● 196 VTAP (VTA Regiment) with 18 Il-76MD
    We can see the airplanes of this regiment in the central área of the aerodrome https://www.google.es/maps/@56.8300695,35.7564936,646m/data=!3m1!1e3
    In the satellite images of last year and the present year, some Il-76 are not in the aerodromes, they are working. Is for that the high number of photos of Il-76 appeared in RP since the end of 2017


    ● 76 OVTAE (separate squadron of VTA) with An-22 and An-124-100
    We can see those airplanes in the north-east área of the airbase https://www.google.es/maps/@56.8361797,35.7599161,404m/data=!3m1!1e3

    We can even see the registration of that big airplanes: https://www.google.es/maps/@56.8361921,35.7583252,50m/data=!3m1!1e3
    In each parking site for this big airplanes there are big green boxes with tools and other things prepared for the maintenance of the airplanes.
    In total there are 9 parking sites prepared for the big airplanes of 76 OVTAE

    In the satellite we can see one An-124-100 (RA-82011) and 5 An-22 (starting from rigth: RA-09344, RA-09328 , RA-09342, RF-09309 and the fifth in the left, without numbers, but it is RA-09341)

    Also , in previous satellite images there was other An-124-100 parked in Migalovo , the RA-82035 https://russianplanes.net/id218219

    There are one empty site for a sixth An-22, this airplane is parked in Ivanovo airbase, perhaps waiting for reairs in the 308 ARZ https://www.google.es/maps/@57.0530665,40.9856882,100m/data=!3m1!1e3
    It is the An-22 RA-08832 arrived to Ivanovo time ago https://russianplanes.net/id200483

    At Ivanovo 308 storage site , also there are one seventh An-22 (RA-09029) , but seems decomisiones some time ago. https://www.google.es/maps/@57.0456392,40.9685395,50m/data=!3m1!1e3

    The 76 OVTAE has assigned in total at least 8 big airplanes; 6 An-22 and at least 2 An-124-100

    Probably more just modernized An-124-100 will replace the reamining An-22 once they consume the flight hours that remain to the resource of the An-22

    76 OVTAE is the successor of regiment 8 OVTAP with An-22 , that was downgraded to squadron by 2010-2011
    In this old satellite image we can see the full regiment of An-22 https://zoom.earth/#view=56.835616,35.759298,16z/layers=archive47


    ● In the Migalovo air base also there was a reserve unit, but currently the most of the airplanes have been recycled
    The reserve unit is in the south west of the aerodrome: https://www.google.es/maps/@56.8277613,35.7426596,404m/data=!3m1!1e3




    We also can see this airplanes of 76 OVTAE in detail in russianplanes:

    33º Separate Transport Mixed Aviation Regiment

    Prowess , Honor , Fatherland

    Saint Petersburg, military unit 49719, aerodrome Levashovo



    https://function.mil.ru/news_page/country/more.htm?id=11874310@egNews
    A new air transport regiment will be formed in the Western Military District
    05.12.2013
    A new separate transport mixed aviation regiment of the Western Military District will be formed on the basis of a squadron of transport aviation stationed at the Levashovo military airfield near St. Petersburg.
    The fleet of the new aviation unit will consist of the An-12, An-26, An-30, An-72, Tu-134, L-410 military transport aircraft, as well as Mi-8
    The main task of the regiment will be aviation support of planned combat training activities of the Western Military District, as well as transportation of personnel, weapons and military equipment and military goods, including their delivery to remote areas.
    In addition to the military airfield Levashovo, the infrastructure of the regiment will also include 5 airfields of various classes located in the Leningrad, Arkhangelsk and Vladimir regions.


    At the end of 2013, the 33 regiment was formed on the basis of 17 OSAE (Separate mixed squadron) based in the aerodrome of Mirny (Cosmodrome of Plesetsk) in Arkhangelsk Oblast and the 138 OSAP based in Gromovo and Levashovo


    All the airplanes were transfered to Levashovo, disbanding the squadron of Plesetsk , probably the better transport unit of VVS in that time
    The regiment is probably one of the biggest unuts of VVS , with the size of a brigade , at least


    33º OTSAP regiment had the next units:


    -m/u 49719 in  Levashovo, the main airfield  of 33 OTSAP  https://www.google.es/maps/@60.0905903,30.2036562,736m/data=!3m1!1e3

    -m/u 49719-2  Gromovo (former 1080 avb and 12º GU MO RF). Remains a comandant of aviation and repair facilities. https://www.google.es/maps/@60.7101848,30.1109656,723m/data=!3m1!1e3
    Used as allternative aerodrome as in Levashovo there are not place for all the aircraft , and also for the maintenance of aircraft

    -m/u 49719-3  Semyazino aerodrome (Vladimir)  composite squadron , https://www.google.es/maps/@56.1265701,40.3262445,412m/data=!3m1!1e3
    Former 98º OSAE of RVSN (Strategic Misile Troops), tranfered to VVS in 2011
    The facilities of the squadron seems in overhaul in the last satellite inage

    -m/u 49719-4  Talagi airport (Arkhangelsk Oblast) , composite "zveno" (Liasion unit) https://www.google.es/maps/@64.5969271,40.7268109,158m/data=!3m1!1e3
    Former 89º OAZ = separate aviation "zveno" (squad) . Probably this unit has been or should be transfered to North Fleet Command

    -m/u 49717-5  Rogachevo airbase (Arkhangelsk Oblast) (commandant of aviation) . 
    https://www.google.com/maps/@71.6094677,52.4689522,233m/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en
    Not clear if this unit remains in the 33ºOTSAP. Probably this unit has been or should be transfered to North Fleet Command

    -m/u 49719-6  Plestetsk aerodrome at Mirny (Arkhangelsk Oblast). https://www.google.es/maps/@62.7195783,40.4907604,1354m/data=!3m1!1e3
     The 17 OSAE was disbanded and the airplanes, mainly An-12 and An-72 were relocated in Levashovo. 
    Only remained a comandant of aviation in the aerodrome.
    By 2015, the unit was trasfered to the North Fleet Joint Strike Command, as it is in the territory assigned to that task forcé



    At the moment, the aircraft assets of the regiment are the next:

    -Levashovo/Gromovo:

    The transport regiment 257º OSAP merged in 265º AvB.
    By 2010 the unit merged with the 36º OSAP of Chita, when the provinces of the Transbaikal were annexed to the East Military District.
    The 36th OSAP aircraft were sent to Jabarovsk. It turned out that the 265th AvB had a lot of planes.

    In this image of 2011 we can see up to 14 An-12 and 13 An-26 at the base of Jabarovsk
    https://zoom.earth/#view=48.47056,135.142801,16z/layers=archive46

    next , the unit was renamed as 6º Airgroup of 6983º AvB.

    "In a separate mixed aviation squadron of the Air Force and Air Defense Association of the Eastern Military District in Kamchatka, 4 helicopters of the new Mi-8 AMTSh "Terminator."






    About the 18 BrAA, military unit 42838, this unit is currently under construction. For the moment has received about:
    -20 Ka-52
    -30 Mi-8AMTSh
    -6 Mi-26,
    for that , still has no 4 squadrons, only 3 and a compamy of Mi-26.

    The squadron of Mi-28 could be received in about 3 or 4 years.
    Mi-28NM is expected in 112º OVP at Chita in 2020 and 2021, and probably the next will be Chernigovka (575 AvB) that has only 2 squadrons, one of Ka-52 and other of Mi-8AMTSh since about 2013, and cannot became to regimental organization until it receives more helicopters (319º OVP is the name of the helicopter  regiment of Chernigovka)

    18º BrAA also has a helicopter detachment military unit 42838-2 in Burevetsnik airfield in Iturup Island (Kuriles Archipiélago) of Sakhalin Oblast https://panterka93.livejournal.com/15099.html

    The unit was the 101º OVO (separate helicopter detachment) , with about 7 or 8 helicopters.
    This unit were decomissioned and for the moment it seems only have received 2 Mi-8AMTSh from Jabarovsk

    Slon heavy transport, payload capacity should be 180 tons:

    If they fit it with PD-35 engines then it might be 180 tons with full fuel... which would mean 180 tons to 16,000km range or so.

    The original Ukrainian engines put out about 24 tons thrust so four engines mean 96 tons thrust on the An-124, while the 6 engines on the An-225 generate about 144 tons of thrust... but also with wing extensions to fit 6 engines... a larger body, and an H tail to allow external payloads to be carried it is also much bigger and heavier than the An-124.

    This Slon aircraft with four 35 ton thrust engines will have 140 tons of thrust with four engines... which should be plenty with an H tail for external payloads.

    A 6 engined version would have 210 tons of thrust...

    The PD-35 is not the biggest engine they are planning on developing...
