    Su-35 with unguided rockets. Enough of this nonsense!

    Wasn't this picture from pilot competition? For competition of pilot skills, unguided rockets and dumb bombs are the best choice as you could not miss with guided missile or bomb.

    58 flankers plus 10 or so mig-29 for 2014? That should make Russia the country with most produced combat aircraft in 2014. Possibly also in 2015 if the numbers are kept up, before f-35 production really ramps up.

    Second Su-35S contract could be for as many as 56-64 aircraft:

    You gonna pay for it ?

    Almost 200 birds per year and within several years the entire RuAF inventory is replaced. Then either you have to pay to increase the AF (whos got the money for that?) or the factories sit there twiddling their thumbs.

    And the USSR with its thousands of tanks and airplanes per year is not around anymore, nor will it ever be.

    Excellent news. I hope they will sign it soon for 64 planes to form 4 full regiments + 1 training/test squadron.

    Glad you are not in charge my friend.

    They certainly could easily spend a large amount of money to build extensive production facilities and train a huge work force and make 200 planes a year... but after 4-5 years when they have made 1,000 planes are they going to close the factories and fire all those trained skilled workers?

    By scaling down production over the next 10 years they can meet the needs of the Russian military with a bit of spare capacity for export orders... they will save a lot of money not wasted on extra unnecessary production capacity, which will keep the costs down and the workers will be guaranteed work for the next decade or more.

    Sensor fusion means nothing. It just means various sensors receive information, communicate and display a unified picture to the pilot and to the aircraft's computers.
    Every modern bird has sensor fusion to some degree.

    The avionics fitted to the Su-35 is related to the systems to be fitted to PAK FA.

    In many ways the Su-35 has avionics suite version 5 mk 1, while PAK FA will have avionics suite version 5 mk 2.

    Experience with the Su-35 will assist in developing and improving the system in PAK FA even before it enters service.

    The SU 35S & the PAK FA will need to find a replacement for the R-37M .

    Compared to missiles like the IRIS - T the R37M has less G and lacks Lock-On After Launch .

    That's not to say that the R 37M is not a good missile . It of course has good range and good HOBS capability but the Russian philosophy has always been to defeat enemy fighters at WVR ( something that NATO is realizing of late) . And for this high G and LOAL are an absolute must .

    You are thinking of R-73, and yes it is a bit long in the tooth. There is an updated version in production/testing now, but the definitive short ranged weapon is brand new development that will appear later in the decade.

    Ministry of Defense to sign contract for the delivery of Su-35S aircraft

    Vladimir Mikhailov, Head of the Department of Military Programs at United Aircraft Corporation, told ITAR-TASS in an interview that in 2015 the Russian Ministry of Defense plans to sign another agreement for the delivery of Su-35S fighters. Among the distinctive features of the aircraft are its new avionics and Irbis radar unit, which was developed by KRET.

    "Deliveries under the current contract will be completed next year, respectively, and the signing of a new contract for the delivery of Su-35S fighters is expected in 2015. We are talking about an agreement for more than 40 aircraft," said Vladimir Mikhailov.

    Recall that a previous government contract for the delivery of 48 Su-35S fighters was signed at the MAKS-2009 International Air Show. That was the largest deal made by the Russian Air Force in the last decade for the purchase of new fighter aircraft.

    The SU-35S is a heavily upgraded, highly maneuverable multi-role 4++ generation fighter jet, and it is intended to replace the Su-27 frontline fighter. Due to an improved airframe with reinforced construction, the Su-35s has a significantly increased service life of 30 years.

    The main distinguishing feature of the Su-35S is its use of radically new on-board equipment. The Ramenskoye Instrument Design Bureau (RPKB), which is a subsidiary of KRET, is responsible for the development of instrumentation and a number of other avionics systems for the airplane.

    At the core of the fighter's avionics is an on-board information and control system, which is designed to link avionics systems into a single integrated system, ensuring interaction between the crew and equipment.

    The on-board information and control system consists of two digital computers, devices for switching and converting information and a display system that implements the glass cockpit concept.

    Two huge MFI-35 multifunction color LCD panels, a multifunction controller with a built-in display processor, an IKSH-1M wide angle head-up display that projects onto the windshield and a display and control panel form the basis of the information-control system in the cockpit.

    Another feature of the Su-35S fighter is its Irbis radar unit with a phased array, which has properties unequaled in any other unit to detect targets at long range. It was developed by JSC V.V. Tikhomirov Scientific Research Institute of Instrument Design, and it is the latest member of the Bars family of airborne radars. It is deployed on the Su-30MKI and Su-30MKM aircraft.

    The Irbis radar unit can detect and track up to 30 air targets while continuing to monitor the survey space. It can track fire directed at up to eight air targets simultaneously. The unit can detect and track up to four ground targets in several mapping modes up to a distance of up to 400 km while maintaining monitoring of the airspace. Irbis is superior to most foreign radars with passive and active phased arrays across many indicators.

    There will be more new contracts next year, but we will have to wait to see, how many and which planes they will buy.

    Among many other interesting details here, it appears there were 3 Su-35S (plus 2 Su-30M2) delivered couple of days ago. Wonder if they'd be going to Crimea as the M2s (apparently).

    I hope Su-35 will go in Dzemgi air base to fully equip Su-35 regiment with the second squadron. This regiment will have to protect Vostochny cosmodrom.
