Yes, exactly. If the Sukhois are <30 mill per unit then MiG-35 should be cheaper or at least not more expensive. Fighters are needed in RuAf and with one billion you may buy how many, 40? They are very cheapOK the you have Sukhois and you ant to spend billions of procurement of MiG-35? It will be a 50years concept in 2030s.
Well, you have always limited money supply. SO either you spend on procurement stuff that's not really needed or invest in future tech. RuAF is close new fighters procurement saturation, why to add another logistic chain, production line and jut second fighters with much overlapping abilities? OAK has problem now with enough Sukhois' orders to keep factories running.
MiG wont be jobless at all: Skat + MiG-41, perhaps export contracts.
We are in 2018 not in 2030 remember?You have to decide MiG-35 or new fighters with 2030s tech.
2018 is ending now. 6 first MiGs has to be delivered by 2023. You wont get any numbers before 2025+. in early 2030s you can have new model fighters. I cannot see any rationale for procurement unless that is being cool is enough for military.
Oh yes fighter is cool, it can do its job, decent performance but first of all this want ever military project bu MiG own project. Military decided to invest money now in drones as you dont need to train pilots to do the job. Unmanned fighters will be the future. No human restrictions and you can make as many as your factories can make.
if they wont buy they save even more.If they can use the platform and update it then they are saving, massively.
meh its theirs tooLMFS wrote:Well in fact it is our problem if you knowingly flood the forum with false data
Don't know your experience, but developing and testing something moderately complex is extremely effort intensive and time consuming, so imagine a fighter aircraft.
meh onely what i ever contributed to was making nails
