    I think it is... combining looking for threats in Russian airspace and the space above Russia, with interceptor aircraft and ground based missiles makes sense to me... and it seems to me to be separate from the role of defending your own aircraft (Air Force PVO) or ground forces (ground based air defence forces), or Naval air defence.

    I have read that the idea dates back from late 80ies when it become necessary (did not catch up why) to build ADF as a separate military branch.

    Didn't even had a chance to read it carefully yet, but i would bet they refer to the 2013 birds that have been delivered and inducted in Feb. 2014, plus 2014's  birds (12+12, right?).

    Right, but you cant count them twice. Meaning in 2013 and than again in 2014 or counters should agree with themselves to count them based on date of induction or date of deliveries but

    not both ways simultaneously Very Happy

    About Su-35, 12 were from 2013 and 12 from 2014. The only think, which is not really clear is claim, than 8 Su-35 from 2013 went to Dzemgi AB and 4 to training center. As I remember, those 4 Su-35, which went to training center were from 2012 and were in KnAAPO for modifications to be the same as those in combat units.

    Russia to Merge Air, Space Forces in 2015: Defense Ministry

    Russia will form an Air-Space Force by combining its Air Force and Space Forces in 2015. The military is working to develop a reliable layered missile defense system in space, and to deploy newest radars.

    MOSCOW, January 13 (Sputnik) – Russia will create an Air-Space Force from the merger of its Air Force and Space Forces in 2015, the country's Armed Forces General Staff chief, Valery Gerasimov, said Tuesday.

    “A new type of armed forces will be created in 2015, the Air-Space Forces, by combining two already existing types of military armed forces: the Air Force and Space Forces,” Gerasimov said.

    Earlier it was reported that Russia would combine these two military forces in 2016.

    According to Gerasimov, the military is working to develop a reliable layered missile defense system in space, and to deploy newest radars.

    The establishment of the Air-Space Forces has been widely discussed in the press in recent years, but such rumors were always denied by the authorities. Last summer, Russian Air Force commander-in-chief Lt. Gen. Viktor Bondarev confirmed the creation of the new force.

    Should be a good thing... Space defence forces are looking for objects outside the atmosphere, while the PVO RuAF is looking for things inside the atmosphere... a lot of their work is related and likely duplicated.

    Extra radar and observation installations on the ground, in the air and in space can be shared and resources can be pooled like interceptor aircraft and missiles.

    Hopefully this will add a budget for MiG-31 replacements and other systems too.

    The RuAF seemed more interested in the PAK FA than the MiG-31...

    Not as ridiculous as the numbers for the "American" aircraft.

    But what do you expect from a piece of prolefeed from Flight.

    There's an erroneous and unsubstantiated rumor going around the internet that Dmitry Rogozin fired Mikhail Pogosyan as the head of UAC, and has named Russia’s Deputy Industry and Trade Minister Yury Slusar as president, in actuality Pogosyan resigned and his contract was up in February. In reality Pogosyan is a better scientific mind than a marketing mind so I hope he heads more projects pretty soon. I don't know enough about Slusar to make a comment about him, whatever changes he makes better be for the better:
