    Sounds like they are satisfied with it as a strike bomber to replace the Su-24 in Russian AF service and are now looking to add naval capabilities to allow it to replace the Su-24 and perhaps Tu-22M3 in Naval service...

    The Tu-22M3 could reportedly carry 10 Kh-15s with four externally on hard points and 6 in the internal rotary weapon bay.

    A new upgraded faster Kh-15 would be interesting and a powerful new weapon for a variety of aircraft...

    Even the upgraded Kh-32 has very impressive performance now... the upgraded Kh-15 would be a very important new weapon...

    Russian Su-34 Bomber Gets Unique New Recon Gear

    Russia’s latest Sukhoi Su-34 frontline bomber will soon be sporting advanced radio surveillance gear that will allow the crew to spot and destroy enemy headquarters, communications and drone control centers, the newspaper Izvestiya wrote citing a source at the Defense Ministry in Moscow.

    The new system, dubbed the UKR-RT, is placed inside a container attached to the underside of the Su-34 (NATO reporting name — Full Back).

    “Right now the UKR-RT system is undergoing field trials and will soon be supplied to the Air Force,” the an unnamed source told the newspaper.

    The UKR-RT is primarily designed to locate and “read” the technical signatures of communications systems, radar installations and UAV ground control stations.

    Independent military expert Anton Lavrov said that the new system would turn the frontline bomber into a multirole machine able to fight and reconnoiter all at the same time.

    “With this specialized container on board, the Su-34 will save us the money that would otherwise be needed to develop a new AWACS-type aircraft.”

    During peacetime it can conduct reconnaissance without the use of dedicated spy planes, while in wartime it is less vulnerable compared to reconnaissance planes converted from transport and passenger aircraft,” Lavrov said.

    According to another in dependent defense expert, Dmitry Boltenkov, the UKR-RT has at its heart the M-410 radio reconnaissance system.

    “The M0410 is a downsized version of the more sophisticated Fraktsiya system carried by Russia’s latest Ty-214R reconnaissance plane,” Boltenkov said.

    Many foreign military specialists regard the Tu-2014R as a unique information gathering platform able to spot targets hundreds of kilometers away.

    Several such planes conducted a series of reconnaissance missions late in 2012 near Japanese airspace and are frequent guests in Syria.

    According to an article, titled “Russia Has Deployed its Latest Spy Plane to Syria,” which recently appeared in the authoritative Internet journal Aviationist, the Fraktsiya system allows the Tu-214R not only to intercept radar, electronic communications and even cellphone massagers, but also to use the obtained information to create an “electronic picture of the battlefield” in real time.

    Would that mean that current rwr/esm suites on su34/su/35 arent precise enough to do pinpoint accurate geolocation of ground emissions? (which can then be followed upon by satnav guided bomb strikes)

    I wonder, if those new recce pod for Su-34 have something to do with those 8 Sych pods, which come in 3 versions, which they were shown a year ago. They were produced 2 in radio/ELINT version, 3 in radar version and 3 in EO version.

    Believe they mean 100th air frame in production. My count was 76 the first of the year. You add the 16-18 being produced for this year plus 6-8 prototypes and they could be working on the 100th aircraft.

    Translation of a quote from bmpd in regards to the 100th aircraft story;

    Comment bmpd. Apparently, the statements on the issue now, "the hundredth" bomber Su-34 is a "cunning for the anniversary." According to available information, to date, it has been constructed and handed over the seven flight and two ground experienced and pre-production sample of the T-10B (Su-34), the first five serial Su-34 in 2006-2008, 32 aircraft contracted in 2008 (in 2009-2013 years) and 48 machines from the contract in 2012 to 92 aircraft (in 2013-2016, six aircraft of this number must be transferred in part to Khurba soon). Delivery of the 100th flight of the Su-34 in such a way expected by the end of 2016. (theoretically he should be the last, the 18th aircraft program 2016).

    Need to talk about the Su-34 to non military types? Lots of snippets in this long write up. They will put an exercise machine in there next!

    Good picture as well.

    There were 5. 05, 06, 07, 09, 10. All of them to Hurba. They received 01, 02, 03, 04 earlier this year.

    What happened to "8"? That confirms the military spokesman who said the delivery makes 50% of the planned years total. And previous article about the 100th Su-34 claimed that 18 were scheduled for this year.

    In addition to the VKS regiments there are also those aircraft presently assigned to the Training Conversion Center at Lipetsk (9 Su-34, 7 Su-35S and 4 Su-30SM) and the Testing Center at Ahtubinsk ( 4 Su-34, 10 Su-35S and 4 Su-30SM)

    That 10 Su-35S at the Testing Center worry me unless they are focused on new weapons testing.

    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)

    Believe we will still see 18 as this years output.

    I had a count of 76 at the end of 2015 and 10 would make 86 Suspect however can only locate 83 at the present. dunno

    Ah! the joys and bliss of trying to track the Russian military Twisted Evil

    Me too. 76 but we had 5 units delivered before the last one. 81+6 new = 87

    Kupol start serial production of SLAR recce pods Pika-M, which will be primarely used on Su-34 jets and later also on other jets and UAVs, most probably on Su-30SM and Su-35. In the resolution of 1 -1,5 m it could see targets up to 300 km away, but for more precise scaning it could work with resolution of 30 cm. Radar finished its testing in 2016.

    Αnother three Su-34s delivered to VKS russia

    http://bmpd.livejournal.com/2222242.html

    With the transfer of three Russian bombers on October 31, 2016 to VKS the total number of Su-34, handed over all contracts, including seven experimental and pre-production samples reached 94 units (so 87 combat). It was reported that on August 19, 2016 at the official ceremony NAZ rollout 100th built bomber Su-34, which, apparently, will be transferred FSI Russia by year's end. By the end of the year, presumably, Novosibirsk aircraft plant must pass six more Su-34 (ie a total of 18 on the program of 2016).

    So 12 su-34s delivered this year with the last ones. 87 total delivered
    By year end 6 more. 93 in total at the end of 2016
