    Actually the SVP-24 complex of Gefest & T does nothing to improve or enhance the radar and the optronic targeting system of aircarft it is equipped in.

    On the Su-24Ms and Tu-22M3s, the SVP-24 complexes simply provide:

    1. Improve the awareness situation of targets/battlefield  by converting radar signal to video signal and display the video images on TV or/and MFD or/and HUD, help both pilot and weapon controller see the same things. The images taken from radar can overlap with what to be seen through optronic targeting system or/and digital mapping.

    2. Improve the awareness situation of aircraft's motion/coordinates by KENS that to be done by inertial navigation, radio navigation, GPS/Glonass navigation integrates with aircaft's radar/optronic targeting system.

    3. Onboard mission programming and ammunition ballistic caculation computers.

    4. Data input/output devices.

    5. Air data store.

    6. Communication/data exchanged and transfered with ground force.

    7. Ground base mission programming, analysis and training computers.

    They all above help the aircrafts with SVP-24 Gefest gain very high effectiveness/accuracy when destroying targets by dumb bombs and unguided rockets.
    Wow, it does also make coffee?
    Joking but look that what you are descriving there with "simply'' is actually a whole lot of things:

    1. is sensor fusion .i.e. something very, very modern as a concept, that F-35 'murican fanboiz continously keep bragging about.
    2. is situational awareness,  above cited fanboiz literally crazy with it.
    6. is also something of the same league of NATO link 16, they doesn't literally move a step without it.
    3. is the thing that provide this sensational enhance in precision using unguided bombs, westeners still can't just mentally cope with it...
    the rest are useful trimmings in an already first class package.

    Here we have a TV Picture from Platan in Su-34. On the left side TV in cirillic was marked, but under it is writen TP in cirillic. Anyone know if TP is for thermal im aging channel? In Russian TP could be for "teplovisiony kanal".

    From this same topic, page 16

    According to Myasnikov, the Su-34 was the first post-Soviet military aircraft formally accepted into the inventory by the government on  20 March 2014.  The contract for what was initially the Su-27IB was signed in 1989.

    A pre-series airframe flew for the first time on 18 December 1993.  It flew as the Su-32FN at the Paris Air Show in 1995.

    In 2003, the MOD decided to put the Su-34 into experimental use.  The year 2006 brought a contract for five Su-34 to be delivered in 2007-2009.

    However, Myasnikov notes that the Novosibirsk Aviation Production Association (NAPO) named for V. P. Chkalov was in a pathetic state at the time:
    “The state hadn’t ordered new aircraft, assembly shops were empty.  The company survived on account of consumer goods, making instruments, steel doors, etc.  Suffice it to say that now in the final assembly shop of 250 workers only 5 are veterans still having Soviet experience.”

    Literally on its knees, he says, the factory re-trained workers and assembled one aircraft per year.

    Then, in 2008, came the contract for 32 Su-34s by 2013, and a follow-on for 92 by 2020.

    Then the total number contracted is 129 airplanes

    BMPD reports that there were 6 though. And that 08 is there as well. So that makes it 20 this year I guess.

    the article says:

    With the transfer of six VKS Russian bombers August 30, 2016 the total number of Su-34, handed over all contracts, including seven experimental and pre-production samples reached 92 units.

    so we we have 85 in service (altough i have counted 87 with my calculations)

    Why do you count the prototypes?
    Those are not part of the estructure of VVS and the majority are out of service

    The graphic is not exact with the first airplanes of series handed over, and also in 2014 was handed over 2 more of planning
