    Excellent. RuNAVY have 7 Su-30SM now, 5 more and there will be whole squadron for Black Sea fleet. I hope NAVY will order 72 more for fleets.

    Another 2 Su-30SM

    These 2 along the previous 2 built in april-may have not been formally transferred to the Navy yet. So still we have only 3 in service

    RuAF will replace French HUD 3022 from Thales with domestic HUD IKSh-1M, which is used in Su-35S.

    Mo deliveries yet except 2 aircrafts before some months. I wonder why, Su-30SM line seemed to be the most productive

    I find quite interesting piece of equipment in both Su-30 versions, which usual Su-27UB doesn't have and it is special weapon control joystick on the right side of cockpit. Anyone have an idea, if this joystick is fixed in this position or WSO could bring it closer to himself to operate with it? It is in quite unusual position.

    Regarding AL-31FM1 engine I find, that in 2007 it was tested in Su-27LL plane with TVC and that AL-31FM1 is in serial production from 2007 for Su-34 and Su-27SM. Interesting is, that this engine was not exported, Russia all export Su-30MKK/MK2 equip with AL-31F or Su-30MKI/MKM woth AL-31FP and they have 123 kN of trust with afterburner. Al-31FM1 have 135 kN of trust and longer life time. I really doubt, that new build Su-30SM use old AL-31F engine from standard Su-27 with TVC instead of more powerful AL-31FM1 with TVC, which was also tested. Maybe they just use old designation.

    Interesting is, that export Bars-M radar work at peak power of 4 to 5 kW, while Chelnok EGSP-6A transmitter in Bars-M radar could work with 7 kW peak power. Standard N001 radar have 4 kW peak power, so radar in Su-30MKI/MKM is limited with power from old Al-31FP engines. Su-30SM could use Bars-R radar with full 7 kW peak power simply with AL-31FM1 engines with TVC. Simply with more powerful engines Su-30SM is more capable than export Su-30MKI/MKM in trust to weight ratio and in radar capabilities.

    Yes, this is interesting. Irkut already build some number of Su-30SM for Navy and air force, but only two (38 and 39) for Navy were delivered at MAKS 2015. I wonder, what they are waiting for.

    Irkut produce around 30 Su-30SM per year, so those 20 to25 will be for RuAF and they could still produce additional for RuNAVY. It will be good, if they order 200+ in total.

    Being a cynic the "ordered by the Defense Ministry" would indicate for both services to me. Nice way to spend a billion euros in any case Very Happy  After 60 for the AF and 12+8 for the Naval Aviation plus another 75 to go along with 20 M2's, 100 35S's, 100 27SM2 and SM3's and 120-140 SU-34's... pretty damn good for the Flanker family.  thumbsup

    ИРКУТСК, 7 сен — РИА Новости. Минобороны РФ рассчитывает до конца года продлить контракт с корпорацией "Иркут" на поставку истребителей Су-30СМ для ВВС, сообщил в понедельник журналистам замглавы Минобороны Юрий Борисов.

    "У нас заканчивается серийный контракт на поставку для основного заказчика — ВВС России, и мы прорабатываем новый трехгодичный контракт. Он примерно на 20-25 самолетов марки самолетов Су-30СМ ежегодно", — сказал он.


    Ria reports, that those 75 Su-30SM will be for RuAF (VVS).

    Why do there appear to be different inlets? On one aircraft there are no outlets? behind the inlet, on another 40 one outlet and on 41 two. Or do they all have two and they are in different positions of openness?

    EDIT
    Just looked in higher def and it seems they all have them. What are they for?

    Those are additional inlets for when the main inlets are covered by the wired mesh guard to protect engines from the debris during take offs.
