    Su-33 is too large to operate comfortably in the Kuznestov, which is not well configured to carry such large fighters, it lacks width on the deck, it lacks space in the hangar, etc ... in practice the Kuznestov has only loaded 8 to 10 Su-33 like every time that have salied

    I agree the Su-33 is a little too large for the K but the Russian Navy is notorious for not spending money on aircraft and it chose the Su-33 over the MiG-33 from the 1980s as the standard fighter for the K for the last 30 odd years.

    It is an air defence carrier.

    The Soviets intended to adopt both the Mig29K and the Su-27K for carrier service but it was also the time when the USSR came apart. The Russian then had to make a hard choice between the two as they had no money to buy two different fighters. They chose the Su27K (Su-33) on the grounds that it had a lower landing speed and a better combat radius than the Mig-29K.

    An-2T: 84

    There are 7 An-2T squadrons with a theoretical number of 12 aircraft each (total 84), one for each VTA Transport Regiment
    Previously, these squadrons were part of the VDV (OVTAE = Separate Military Transport Aviation Squadron)
    In 2010 these squads were added to the VVS VTA. I do not know if after the reform of the VKS they separated again.
    These aircraft are used primarily as training for paratroopers and as a liaison plane between bases.

They chose the Su27K (Su-33) on the grounds that it had a lower landing speed and a better combat radius than the Mig-29K.

    Another factor was price because they cost about the same...

    Ironically the MiG would have kicked the Flankers arse because the MiG was based on the MiG-29M and was fully multirole and able to carry R-77s and other air to air weapons as well as a full range of air to surface weapons, while the Flanker was a bog standard Su-27 with unguided bombs and rockets and air to air missiles as its only weapon options.

    More than 60 units of new aircraft will enter the Russian Air Force by the end of the year

    Air Force Commander Sergei Dronov said that more than 200 modernized aircraft will also arrive

    MOSCOW, August 11. / TASS /. Over 60 units of new aviation equipment and more than 200 modernized aircraft will enter the Air Force (Air Force) by the end of 2021. The Commander of the Air Force, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Aerospace Forces, Lieutenant General Sergei Dronov told about this in an interview with the newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda .

    "By the end of the year, it is planned to supply more than 60 units of new aviation equipment, including modern multipurpose aircraft Su-30SM, Su-35S, Su-57 and front-line bombers Su-34, heavy military transport aircraft Il-76MD90A, combat helicopters Mi 28NM, Ka-52 and airborne transport - Mi-8AMTSh-VN, "said Dronov.

    According to him, more than 200 modernized aircraft will also arrive.

    "All samples of aviation equipment are equipped with the latest personal protection systems. Much attention is paid to increasing survival in the air, reducing radar signature, automating aircraft control and weapon use," said the Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force.

    He stressed that all samples are being tested during the hostilities in the Syrian Arab Republic. Based on the results obtained, the necessary improvements are promptly carried out.

    Air Force Commander Sergei Dronov said that more than 200 modernized aircraft will also arrive

    Well, we must assume that when he says 200 "modernized" he is talking about repairs, of the MLU / KVR type or similar.
    In reality, modernized types proper, such as MiG-31BM, Su-25SM3, Ka-27M or Il-76MD-M will only be about two dozen

    About newly built aircraft, according to previous statements known to date:
    Su-57: 4
    Su-35: 5 ?
    Su-30SM2: at least 4
    Su-34: 8
    Il-76MD-90A: 5 (unlikely since only one has made it off the assembly line until july)
    Mi-8AMTSh-VN: 10
    Mi-38-2 (VIP): 1
    Yak-130: ???

    This adds up to 37 at least

    On the Ka-52 and others such as the Mi-5MTV-5 or Mi-8MTSh, in theory the contracts were terminated last year, however it is possible that additional machines will be received to cover losses.
    This has happened before in contracts that contained options for more machines, as in the case of Su-34, MiG-31BM , Yak-130 or Mi-28N
