Then, the ceo of kret in one of the articles from 2009 stated that the t/r modules are rated to run at 5W each but are only running at 3 - 3.5. That gives the indication that the engines are either incapable of powering whatever apu the MiG's use, or it is the APU'd thenselves. Which any other AESA will have same issue.
The engine power is not relevant, the generators attached to the engines are what creates the electrical power to power onboard systems... the APU is generally only used on the ground when the main jet engines are not operating... either to run systems for testing or to start the main jet engines and power up the computers and calibrate the navigation systems etc etc.
The CEO didn't state why they were only running at 3-3.5 W did he?
It could have been because the cooling system was insufficient, or that they had only gotten part way through testing and had not tested at full power yet...
Mig 35 new body big like Su 27
Not likely, though their might be some size increases, the new aircraft is based on the MiG-29M2 airframe (and MiG-29K) for commonality.
it is not important what u said or what i said ..the only important thing is that the official announcement will state that it is mig-35
I was expressing an opinion... that is what some people do on web forums... if the Russian AF aren't getting AESA radar with their first 30 odd aircraft what makes you think Egypt can have them?
They are clearly not ready yet.... so if they are not ready yet it makes rather more sense to buy the much cheaper MiG-29M which has the same air frame as the MiG-35 and then just add the new expensive and capable bits when they become available. That is not the opinion of the Egyptian military... that is my opinion.
1- he also said " UVZ aims to establish a military equipment factory in Egypt"
And I think we can both agree he is not talking about a T-72 factory, but I think an armata factory would not be for export for some time either.
I rather suspect it will be a T-90SM factory with the future upgrade option for armata based vehicles.
In fact to prepared Egypt for the Armata production I rather suspect the T-90SM factory might make heavy T-90 based APCs, and artillery and other vehicles... but even a very good ally like India has not been given the technology to make the frontal armour of the T-90 so I suspect that will still be in export kit form for the time being.
Also Armata will have modular armour and the armour modules for export wont be quite as effective as the ones used for the Russian military.
2- we already produce more than 80% of m1a1 tank in egypt since 1992 .. so we have Infrastructure for building tanks . but it will need big changes to be able to produce t-90sm instead of m1a1 .
I don't doubt it for a second, but the factories to build and assemble T-90sms are more likely to be later used to make armata based vehicles so I suspect new factories will be built and then adapted the way UVZ T-90 factories will be adapted for production... but not any time soon.
3- read that link :
I don't see anything there that changes my mind about anything I have said...
It comes down to lack of power being produced for these T/R Modules.
Or possibly cooling...
If the engines are the EXACT SAME, then power output will be the same, regardless of the amount of T/R Modules or not. Anyone with common sense will know that.
The engines are irrelevant... the generator attached to the engines creates onboard power during flight and it was designed to work with a much much less powerful radar. the fact the fact that it lacked the power to run an AESA is no great surprise... putting a new generator on the plane is not like having to develop a new jet engine however.
