    so again 2 seat versions? in Russia now will be only "Indian" approach to fighters?

    Maybe they are for tests like franco said and the training of new pilots on the new avionics.

    This is very much a reminder of the Yak-7 story. It should be mentioned that until relatively very recent revelations, the existence of the Yak-7 fighter was unknown outside of Russia.

    Perhaps the MiG-35 will be like the MiG-29K and KUB (9.41/9.47): single seat and double seat versions share the same canopy and front fuselage, the place for the second pilot in the single seat version being filled with a fuel tank.

    The front one is twin seater, the one behind is a single seater. I think this two jets are for RuAF as they have Pastel RWR sensors installed on the fins in Russian way (like on new MiG-29SMT and MiG-29K), Indian MiGs have different placement.

    And they are also expanding production capabilities for future domestic (~50 jets) and export orders. I think RuAF will order far more of them as most probably bigger Su-30SM and Su-35 fighters produced in Irkut and KNAAZ will serve in Siberia and Far East to protect large territories, while smaller MiG-35 produced in Moscow will protect smaller European part of Russia.

    Industries will give the Defense Ministry to test combat aircraft MiG-35 - OAK
    03.30.2016 10:00:05


    Santiago. (Chile). 30th of March. Interfax-AVN - Russian Aerospace forces will get the first prototype of a light multirole fighter MiG-35 this year, said general designer - Vice-President for Innovation of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), CEO of RAC "MiG" Sergei Korotkov.
    "Today the planes are in the shop of the general assembly, they will be collected as soon as this year we will begin flight tests of the aircraft in order to confirm the technical characteristics that have been exposed by the Ministry of Defence for the conclusion of a contract for the series production and supply." - Said C .Korotkov reporters at the aerospace show FIDAE-2016 in Chile.

    He said that two MiG-35 will be used in flight tests.

    .. "The MiG-35 - multi-aerial system, which solves the combat missions in the spectra of" air-to-air "," air-land "," air-to-ship "aircraft equipped with avionics that allows you to use all the means of aviation destruction This fighter belongs to generation "4 ++", it is regarded as a transitional link between the fourth and fifth generation combat aircraft.

    According S.Korotkova before passing two MiG-35 Russian Ministry of Defense, they will be submitted for factory testing.

    Responding to a question, when it is planned to sign a contract with the Defense Ministry, S.Korotkov said: "We are ready even now." "The Defense Ministry expects the results of the tests they carry out once we have these aircraft represent them", - said S.Korotko.

    According to him, the military presented to the MiG-35 "specific requirements".

    "We must first conduct production tests and then present the aircraft to the Ministry of Defence test After the military conduct such tests, and will make objective decisions." - S.Korotkov said.

    According to him, if the industry fully satisfy customer requirements, no one will doubt "that
    such planes, first, eat, and secondly, they are necessary."

    The fate of the aircraft will be resolved this year, says general director of RSK "MIG".

    Responding to a question about how many MiG-35 Russian Air Force may be involved in the case of signing the contract, S.Korotkov said: "Probably to the Ministry of Defence must first contact: as the contract is not - that it does not regard this as a kind of pressure. But I think these are the machines would be a great help in dealing with the challenges that face today by the Ministry of defense. "

    Earlier it was reported that the MiG-35 has the latest optical-location station (OLS) with infrared, television and laser sighting equipment, created with the use of space technologies. Radar provides detection, tracking, identification and seizure of aircraft and ground / surface targets in the front and rear hemispheres day and night.
    MiG-35 at the same time captures 10 goals. The composition of promising air attack weapons entered the aircraft, which are not offered for export. Among them - the means of destruction of long-range, allowing attack targets without entering the zone of the opposing defense. MiG-35 is equipped with modern defense complex, which minimizes the possibility of a sudden attack fighter. The equipment allows to recognize how airplanes and flying rockets.

    The power plant consists of two engines RD-33MK thrust 5.4 tons (afterburner - 9 tons), equipped with smokeless combustion chamber and new electronic control system with full responsibility such as FADEC. Flight hour cost of MiG-35 is almost 2.5 times lower than that of the MiG-29.

    Multifunctional MiG-35 are inherent elements of the fifth generation aircraft, including stealth and versatility. Fighting vehicle embodies the best in the aerodynamic configuration that was in the previous generation of light fighter aircraft MiG-29. Range increased by half compared with its predecessor.

    Post  Genjurooo Thu Apr 14, 2016 12:20 pm

    What are the origins of Mig-29 and Su-27?
    I mean all the Mig planes have similarities. From the body design you can safely conclude that planes like J-8 and FC-1/JF-17 are in fact evolutions of Mig-21 family. Also Mig-23/27 and Mig-25/31 retain body design characteristics that point at their evolution from Mig-21 (and certain prototypes evolved from Mig-21). I can see this at Yak too with Yak-23, Yak-36, Yak-38, Yak-41 that point to a natural evolution.
    But what of Mig-29 and Su-27? The single very weak similarity I can spot is with Su-25. Very weak.

    If I am not mistaken, both have their origin in studies by TsAGI (Central Aero-Hidrodynamic Institute).

    It is a result of improving aircraft design technology.

    I would argue that the US has a bigger problem showing the evolution of its designs... out of the blue they suddenly have a twin engined twin tail finned fighter interceptor... the F-15... just after... and in direct response to the MiG-25... and one could argue that despite its swing wings the F-14 is basically the same and they lead directly to the F-18 and F-22.

    the MiG-29 and Su-27 adopt the revolutionary wing design that allows supersonic speed without a swept wing as such.... they also benefit from LERX or leading edge root extensions as seen on the MiG-23 to energise the air passing the two vertical tail surfaces.

    the requirement for raw speed and the internal volume for an enormous amount of fuel led directly to the MiG-25 and these same driving factors led to the MiG-31.

    New wing shape that allows supersonic flight but not a long runway led to the MiG-29 and Su-27 shape with extended LERX and body lifting shape.

    I remember in the 1980s being rather bored by the flying tubes... Mig-15/17/19/21 and Su-7/9/11/17/20/22, but they were pretty much designed with the technology of the day to do what they do.

    The Su-25 was optimised to do what it does too.

    The change from tube body to boxy body to lifting body in fighter/bombers like the MiG-15/MiG-25/MiG-29 is also reflected in bombers... tu-95/Tu-22M3/Tu-160.

    upward of 1500 liters, i'd day. The older slightly more streamlined (and slighty smaller) had 1500 so this might have a few hundred more...

    But what of Mig-29 and Su-27? The single very weak similarity I can spot is with Su-25. Very weak.
    What is their design origin?

    MiG-25. In fact, MiG-25's concept is the foundation for Su-27...37, MiG-29/33/35, F-15, F-18, F-22, F-35.

    The concept of MiG-25 which Su-27 and MiG-25 inherited that are:

    1) Replacing the cylindrical hull with wide rectangular hull. What GarryB said is "tube body to boxy body". The reason is to increase the lift, increase the payload.

    From now on, most of the lift burden will be carried out by the hull, the wings carry less portion of the lift. That is a good thing because the hull is much thicker and more durable than the wings.

    2) Combine the traditional delta wing (MiG-21) with classical swept wing (MiG-19) into a somewhat trapezoid wing. Like a delta with a trimmed head.

    3) Application of fly-by-wire and computer piloting. From now on, instead of applying direct force to the aircraft through transmission, the pilot send electrical message to the computer, and the computer will control the motors according to the pilot's message.

    Just like you control a electrical toy truck with a joystick.

    The computer will also control the stability of the aircraft and is programmed to intervene when needed. That is critical for MiG-25 and its successor, since most of the lift concentrated at the hull and instead of the wing, MiG-25's stability will be very low at low speed. A very sensitive and intelligent computer is needed, and that's why it MiG-25 was only deployed in 1969 although a prototype had already flown in 1964. Computer took time to mature.

    4) Use 2 vertical stabs instead of 1. The hull now is broad and rectangular, you have to put the vertical stabs at the edge of the hull, so that they can still access the wind at high AoA. The horizontal stabs are also positioned at a lower position than the wing, in order to create a gap for the wind to go through and access the vertical stabs.

    All these enable the aircraft to achieve very high AoA and do corba or kulbit.

    5) Air inlet is controlled by the computer. The computer will open and close the inlet "door" to adjust the airflow, so that the engines will always work at optimal condition.

    Compared with MiG-21, SR-71 and Mirage have conical inlet, they can passively adjust the airflow by speed, but cannot by payload or positions. And MiG-19, F-16, F-18, Rafale cannot adjust anything, they have ancient ram inlet.

    6) BVR fight with radars and guided missiles. Russian air radars are very big and powerful. MiG-25 has the biggest nose radar of 140cm. diameter. Su-30 has the biggest nose radar amongst the multirole: 96cm.

    ======

    And why people need MiG-25, why people need all these above for new generation of fighter ?

    Because the new fighter is multirole. They are air-superior fighter, but also are bomber, and are interceptor. They have to be fast, to be extremely maneuverable, but also can fly long, fly far, fly well both in high or low speed. They have to have large payload to carry a lot of weapons and big radar.

    Now instead of having a fleet of MiG-19, a fleet of MiG-21, a fleet of MiG-17, you can have a fleet of MiG-29 to do all the things.

    MiG-25/31 are interceptors, but they can carry a lot of weapons, they can fly far and long, and they can be used as bombers - although they are not designed to be bombers.

    There is no proof they are doing any modernization to 9-13/9-12 frames. This is almost certainly just refurbishment unless proven otherwise.

    Russia’s MiG-35 to Boast State-of-the-Art Ship-Relative Navigation System

    Russia’s MiG-35 multirole fighter jets will soon be equipped with the latest platform-less inertial navigation system, Igor Nasenkov, deputy head of the Radio-Electronic Technologies Concern (KRET), told RIA Novosti.

    The adaptation of the navigation system designed for shipborne aircraft will be completed in July, Nasenkov said, adding that work proceeded according to plan.

    The MiG-29K/KUB fighters are now being equipped with the LINS-100RS inertial system, while the MIG-35s will receive the BINS-SP2, which is absolutely quiet, solid and user-friendly.

    The system is designed to determine the location of the object, complex processing and delivering navigation and flight information. It is also able to determine the coordinates and parameters of an object in the autonomous mode and in the absence of terrestrial, marine or space signals.

    The MiG-35 is a multipurpose 4 ++ generation fighter, it is a further development of the MiG-29K/KUB and MiG-29M/M2 combat aircraft with improved combat effectiveness and versatility, as well as improved performance.

    The Radio-Electronic Technologies Concern, Russia’s biggest in its field, is part of Rostec.

    121 aviation repair plant repair and modernize MiG-29 (9-13) b/n 03 most probably to MiG-29SM standard and it seems it will go to Armenia.

    There is no proof they are doing any modernization to 9-13/9-12 frames. This is almost certainly just refurbishment unless proven otherwise.

    Was reported earlier on this thread. Last year and early this. New radar, ejection seats and engines are part of the upgrade.

    I would like to ask one question regarding those MiG-29M2 (35D), which were produced last year for unknown foreign customer. Most probably they are finished now and most probably customer pilots are now training on them in Russia before they will be delivered. Anyone know, where those jets are now and if there is any picture of them to see in what colors they are to guess who is the customer?
