    Su-34 = medium to long range strike.

    Tu-22M3M = long range and heavy payload strike.

    Agree, but for Su-30, there are two versions. Su-30M2 will be multirole trainer, most probably for Su-35 and PAK-FA too. Su-30SM is multirole fighter and form independent regiments in RuAF as it will in naval aviation.

    Gents, if i may ask for your help. Mr Fomin made available number 3/2014 of his Take-off magazine here. Starting from page 13 there is a great article regarding the russian military aviation industry achievements for 2013. Now, since i can understand only a limited amount of russian, can you confirm that upgraded aircraft delivered by that time to VVS comprise 40 Su-24M (Gefest&T upgrade), 80 Su-25SM, and about 50 MiG-31BM? Any additional details in the text, it says something about Su-24M and 2013 for instance, and what about strategic bombers? Thank you.

    Russian Armed Forces to Receive Minimum of 230 New Planes, Helicopters in 2014

    MOSCOW, September 2 (RIA Novosti) -The Russian Armed Forces will receive no less than 230 new airplanes and helicopters by the end of 2014, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Tuesday.

    “As you know, modern aviation is being received actively in the Armed Forces, and this year alone more than 230 aircraft will be received,” Shoigu said, adding that 50 aircraft have already entered service and that another 180 will enter service by the end of the year.

    According to Shoigu, the military is paying special attention to mastering the use of the avionics and increasing its operational safety.

    Russia is currently undergoing a $640 billion rearmament program aimed at increasing the share of modern weaponry in Russia’s armed forces to 70 percent by 2020. According to the program, Russia's Air Force will receive about 2,000 new aircrafts, including 985 planes.

    Aviaindra-2014 : Russo-Indian exercises

    LIPETSK, August 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Joint Russo-Indian exercisys "Aviaindra-2014" begin in Russia on Friday. An active phase of the aerial maneuvers will be held in Voronezh at the Pogonovo range and in Astrakhan Region at the Ashuluk training range, Colonel Igor Klimov, spokesman of Russia's Air Force, told journalists.
    Colonel General Viktor Bondarev, Commander-in-Chief of Russia's Air Force, is expected to attene a ceremony marking the start of the exercises in Lipetsk.

    "Russo-Indian crews manning the aircraft Su-30SM, helicopters Mi-35 and Mi-8 are to make joint flights with firing at ground targets, and drill the refuelling of Su-30SM aircraft in mid-air by the tanker plane Il-78," Klimov said.

    He pointed out that, beginning from August 25, Indian air pilots at the Lipetsk-based aviation center studied the areas of the forthcoming flights and practiced piloting skills on modern training facilities while air defense specialists have been familiarizing themselvs with anti-aircraft missile systems at the training center of anti-aircraft missile troops at Gatchina.
    The Russian Air Force spokesman said, "Besides, joint air defense crews at Ashuluk military range will repulse a strike by a simulated enemy with field firings of anti-aircraft missile systems S-400, S-300, "Buk-M1", and anti-aircraft missile-and-gun system Pantsir-S1." The purpose of the exercises will be to train joint Russo-Indian crews in accomplishing various function tasks.

    The exercises will continue until September 5.

    For me the most important part is the one that I have highlighted. The fighters will have to repulse fire from S-400, S-300, Buk-M1 and Pantsir-S1. Not easy on any given day.

    Most probably to deliver cargo and personal to any place inside Russia. Il-96 have longer range than Il-76. It could be very useful for supplying border guard posts in Arctic regions.

    Aviaindra-2014 : Russo-Indian exercises

    And it gets more interesting ....

    India interested in Russia’s missile systems

    Indian Air Force commanders have expressed interest in the Russian surface-to-air missile systems in the course of the Avia Indra-2014 exercises, Maj. Gen. Sergey Babakov told journalists.
    “They have expressed great interest in our systems, they probably need to modernize their weapons arsenal,” Maj. Gen. Babakov, head of the Russian Air Force's anti-aircraft missile troops, said.
    India is particularly interested in Russia’s S-400 (SA-21 Growler), S-300PM (SA-10d/e), Pantsir-S1 (SA-22 Greyhound) and Buk surface-to-air missile systems, according to Maj. Gen. Babakov.

    http://in.rbth.com/economics/2014/09/04/avia_indra-2014_teaches_pilots_tactics_and_precision_38067.html

    So, the way I look at it is the first phase of the exercise in Russia is over. The next phase will be in India in November this year.It will be interesting if Russia deploys the S-400, BUK and Pantsir-S1 in India.

    This will give the IAF an opportunity to evaluate how these systems perform under Indian conditions.

    The count will be very difficult... I just watched the most recent Die Hard movie and it seems those sneaky Ruskies have developed a super helicopter that looks like a Hind in a city with the fixed twin 30mm cannon though it seems to fire 50 cal rounds based on their performance against a building... and their muzzle flash.

    But when you fly to the Ukraine and Chernobyl it turns into an Mi-26 heavy lift helo... but can still fire that twin barrel 30mm gun that fires 50 cal ammo...

    It could be worse, you could be watching Rambo 3 where at the end of the movie there's a message personally thanking the Afghan Mujahadeen. Leave it to Hollyweird to pump out horrendously inaccurate movies after another, on top of being stupefying mind numbing garbage.

    I don't remember the credits... when they had that horse mounted charge on those Soviet forces that included at least one ZSU-23-4 my eyes were full of water and I was on the floor laughing... Shocked

    This is part of the stuff most people don't consider when they think about production... machine tools, even having access to a super computer so you can run thousands of simulations an hour and try all sorts of weird solutions without wasting time on the prototypes you end up testing to model level.

    Excellent news.

    BTW it was always part of the plan that up until about 2015 than new products and upgrades will be developed while C4IR is sorted out... after 2015 actual production should take off with a balance of domestic and export production hopefully to be taken over by increased export demand.

    Excellent. Domestic machines and tools are very important, specially for case of sanctions, because there is no problem with spare parts and new tools.
