    No, that dosent mean they need to close it.  Great thing about any facilities, is they can be converted by retooling to do other jobs.  Chances are, they will get them to work on other aircrafts. It would also reduce costs too in the long run.

    An-140 production is stopped in favor of Il-114?

    "Aviacor": An-140 is dead, long live the IL-114?

    The last days of July have become rich on statements regarding the production program of OAO Samara "Aviakor aircraft factory." It is obvious that the factory once again going through hard times, and it can actually save only a miracle.

    So, July 31, 2015 reported that "Aviacor" suspended issuance program of AN-140 due to the political situation around Ukraine - TASS reported, by the company CEO, Alexei Gusev. "Given that we have on this project 34 suppliers of components, as well as the head of "Antonov" [aircraft manufacturing concern] is in Ukraine, as quickly arrange for import substitution is not possible. So we have this program temporarily stopped, and then we'll see, "- he said.

    Gusev added that the assembly of aircraft is still in progress of the components are stored in warehouses. "Of the backlog, we are finishing the construction of aircraft" - quoted by Interfax Gusev. How many aircraft can be collected from the remaining components, he did not elaborate.

    This summer, the plant was unable to perform the contract for the production of AN-140 Russian Defense Ministry due to failure of supply of Ukrainian components which had to ensure the concern "Antonov".
    Because of the political situation ruptured relations between the Russian and Ukrainian aviation and military industries, which were once part of a single Soviet complex.

    In turn, the decision on the draft release of the IL-114 at the Samara plant can be taken at the end of 2015. This was told to reporters in July 30 by the governor of the Samara Region, Nikolai Merkushin. "A final decision on the start of production of the plane yet. The project is now postponed to next year, that is, it will be considered at the end of 2015 and will then be decided whether scheduled for next year funds for its implementation" - said Merkushin.

    He said that the project postponed, due in no small part to the economic situation. "As estimated in general for the project to implement it, you need 58 billion rubles - this new equipment, modernization of the plant for the aircraft, the numbering of the aircraft, well, and in the same amount of leasing - the plane will cost about about $ 14-16 million, the company will be very difficult to buy such an expensive aircraft, "- said the head of the region.

    Yes, it is the Air Force, Air Defense and Space Forces all rolled into one force. The Air Defense had been taken from the Air Force a couple of years back and merged with Space Forces to become the Aerospace Defense Command. Now this force has merged back with the Air Force. The Air Force Commander remains commander of the new force.

    Excellent, I hope they will also build new shelters and hangars for planes and helicopters. Keeping them in warm and dry places will also extend their working lives.

    Yes from my understanding 'BILD' is the German equivalent of Fox News, Sky News, the Sun...a Neo-Con echo chamber, that also acts like Merkel Ferkel's slop trough.

    Russian Ministry of Defense will sign a contract for delivery of 48 Su-35 fighters
    Russian Aviaton » Tuesday August 11, 2015 17:44 MSK

    Russian Ministry of Defense will sign a contract with United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) for delivery of 48 Su-35 multi-role fighters at MAKS-2015 airshow, Interfax-AVN reports with reference to sources close to the aircraft industry and the ministry.

    “The value of this contract will be around 100 billion rubles,” said in the statement published on Tuesday. Su-35 fighter was developed at the initiative of Sukhoi Company (the jet performed its maiden flight in February 2008) without participation of the Ministry of Defense (using own and borrowed funds). The aircraft is manufactured by Komsomolsk-on-Amur aviation plant.

    “The contract for delivery of 48 jets of the type worth 66 billion rubles was signed in 2009, however, the production costs have increased. Russian air forces should take delivery of the last vehicles delivered under this contract in 2015; at the same time Russian Minister of Defense Sergey Shoygu ordered to complete the state testing of the new vehicle in 2015,” said in the statement.

    According to Interfax-AVN, in case of signing a contract with China this year, Russian aircraft industry will secure orders for a total of 118 fighters in 2015: 46 MiG-29s for Egypt, 24 and 48 Su-35 for China and Russian air forces respectively. Moreover, a contract for delivery of four Su-30SM fighters to Kazakhstan may also be signed.

    According to the expert of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies, Konstantin Makienko, this contract will become the largest one signed by Russian air forces since 2012, when large contracts for delivery of 92 Su-34 bombers and 60 Su-30SM fighters were signed. “I doubt that such large contracts may be signed by the Russian Ministry of Defense in the coming years,” the expert said.

    Maybe referring to just 1 type of aircraft. But yes, he did conveniently forgot about MiG-35, PAK FA and other aircraft that were also stated will be purchased. Then there is of course transport aircraft, etc.
