    Old technology used in Su-25 just updated. FOAM is used to keep leaks to minimum after penetration of fuel tanks while outerskin of fuel tanks usually are filled with some material that under oxid gets hard and seals it off. The foam usually has attributes to smother fires to prevent explosions.

    Interesting video. thumbsup Thanks. I find quite interesting, what they are explaining regarding it automatic self defense equipment. It seems that this Khibiny complex doesn't only have a RWR, but also a kind of MAWS, most probably radar type, to detect incoming IR guided missile or MANPAD and than automatically launch chaffs and flares or start jamming radar or radio proximity fuse to detonate a missile before it reach the target.

    But what, weren't there people complaining about the Su-32/34 lacking full DIRCM suite? Was there any truth to that claim, or were they just full of shiite?

    MAWS is not only optical like IR or UV type, but also radar type. Most probably Su-34, Su-30SM and maybe even Su-30M2 and Su-27SM use radar type MAWS together with Khibiny complex and Su-35 most probably use both UV and radar type to increase its effectiveness against any treat.

    Excellent. Far East will be protected with most capable Flankers. It seems Russia want to well protect their back in time of crisis in ME and in Europe.

    Middle East eyes Russian Su-34 bombers after Syria operation — arms exporter

    Post  Pinto on Tue Mar 29, 2016 3:50 pm

    Negotiations are underway with countries from the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, Asia


    QUITOL (India), March 29. /TASS/. Foreign customers, in particular, some Middle East countries, are showing increased interest in Russian-made Sukhoi Su-34 fighter-bombers after Russia’s air task force successfully accomplished its anti-terror missions in Syria, Deputy CEO of Russia’s state arms exporter Rosoboronexport Sergey Goreslavsky said on Tuesday.

    "No doubt, the interest has increased and I want to say that dozens of Rosoboronexport delegations are on foreign trips weekly and a very intensive process of negotiations is under way with countries from the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, Asia and so forth," Goreslavsky said at the Defexpo India-2016 arms show.


    "Following the results of this operation [in Syria], the interest in Su-34 bombers has increased. Several countries are showing the most substantive interest in this machine. They are from the Middle East but I won’t name them," he said.

    The Rosoboronexport deputy CEO said the Russian state arms exporter had initiated work a year ago to prepare an export configuration certificate for the Su-34 bomber.
    Russia started its operation in Syria on September 30, 2015 at the request of Syrian President Bashar Assad to fight militants of the Islamic State and other terrorist groupings in the Arab country.

    The operation involved the Russian Aerospace Force and Navy. It was also reported that Russian special forces were involved in the Syria operation. Russia deployed some most advanced military hardware at the Khmeimim airbase in Syria, including Su-34 bombers and Su-35 fighter jets.

    Russia withdrew the basic contingent of its forces from Syria from March 15 but its air task force continues delivering strikes against terrorists.

    Why India has never shown its interest in this ground attack fighter is not known. Su 34/SU 35 can do all which over priced Rafale is expected to do

    Su-30SM/MKI can already do and better, what the Rafale can do and India already has them in service. Why bother with the rafale to begin with? Indians on twitter make claims they want the Growler instead. LOL.

    Syrian air campaign drums up increased interest in Su-34

    Post  Pinto on Sat Apr 02, 2016 7:48 am

    Performance of the Sukhoi Su-34 fighter-bomber in Syria has sparked interest in its acquisition by export customers, a senior official from Rosoboronexport has claimed. The state-run agency has monopoly control over Russia’s arms exports and was a major exhibitor at the Defexpo India 2016 exhibition, held in Goa from 28 to 31 March.

    The official, Deputy Director General Sergei Goreslavskiy, said that most prominent among those now exploring the purchase of the Su-34 are countries in the region that have witnessed its performance in Syria first hand. The campaign began at the end of September 2015. “Following the results of this [Syrian] operation, the interest in Su-34 bombers has increased; several countries are showing the most substantive interest in this machine.

    They are from the Middle East, but I won’t name them,” Goreslavskiy told Russia’s TASS news agency. He said that his agency had been working for about a year to develop and receive certification for an export configuration of the aircraft, during which time Rosoboronexport representatives have been briefing potential customers on the Su-34. “No doubt the interest has increased and I want to say that dozens of Rosoboronexport delegations are on foreign trips weekly and a very intensive process of negotiations is under way with countries from the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, Asia, and so forth,” said Goreslavskiy. The Su-34 is produced at the Novosibirsk Aviation Production Association (NAPO) in Siberia, which is co-located with the Siberian Aeronautical Research Institute (SibNIA).

    The latter is a research centre that has historically been responsible for the aerodynamic and structural integrity developmental testing for Sukhoi aircraft. The factory’s Su-34 line, which began at a very low rate of single-digit annual production, has since increased its tempo, with the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) having received more Su-34s in 2015 than the service’s acquisition plan originally called for.

    "Amman is conducting consultations with Russian manufactures on acquiring a small number of Su-32 (export version of Su-34) fighter-bomber jets, local media reported Monday, citing officials working for Russian aircraft producers.
    "We hope that the interest will lead to pre-contract negotiations in the near future," the Russian official told the Kommersant newspaper. However, Jordan has not filed any official purchasing order yet, the Russian media outlet added.



    In late March, the Russian state arms exporter Rosoboronexport said Russia’s anti-terror air campaign in Syria had raised the popularity of the Su-34 fighter-bombers, which several Middle Eastern countries were interested in buying.
    Russia has also been carrying out negotiations with the Jordanian side for the supply of several Mi-26 helicopters used both for military and transportation purposes, according to a source in Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation."

    In western military district RuAF have air combat trainings between Su-34 and MiG-29SMT fighters. It would be interesting to see, what results Su-34 achieve against MiG-29SMT in air combat.

    Believe this to be a part of a larger air war game in the Crimea with a squadron from each type being forward deployed there as part of that.

    This war game is interesting because MiG-29SMT is modern fighter, which is on level with F-16, F/A-18, Rafale and Eurofighter. If Su-34 achieve good results in air combat, specially in close air combat against MiG-29SMT, than it could as well against those fighters. Good air combat capabilities with the latest AAMs and with very long range and long time flying capabilities could make Su-34 also an interesting very long distance air patrol fighter and not only a fighter bomber. For Far East and Arctic region Su-34 could be a great supplement to MiG-31 interceptors.

    Well that is abit of an overestimation for MiG29SMT to compare it with Eurofighters and Rafale.
