    One more Su-34 delivery.

    https://t.me/DDGeopolitics/85498

    That would make two deliveries this month, right?

    At least 2 pcs visible.

    Isn't that the same video from couple of days back? I think it refers to the same delivery.

    Su-34 with FAB-500 with UMPC

    Su-34 Tactical Bomber: News #2 - Page 17 Photo101


    The Russian Aerospace Forces continue to use FAB-500M-62 aerial bombs with a universal planning and correction module (UMPC) from front-line Su-34 fighter-bombers during the air strike (the first information about this appeared online in early January).

    TGAF-5M is a type of explosive (TNT-hexogen-aluminum-phlegmatizer), and 491.6 is the mass of the bomb in kilograms (explosive - 300 kg).

    As you might guess, the UMPC has folding wings, tail surfaces with rudders, an autopilot with a laser gyroscope and a satellite navigator. There is information that the range of such ammunition can reach 15 km from an altitude of 500 m and 80 km from 15 km.

    The Military Department periodically reports on the use of gliding bombs with UMPC, including one and a half ton bomb. New weapons - powerful, long-range, high-precision, simple and economical to manufacture - provide significant assistance to the Russian Armed Forces in the defense (and the assault on Avdeevka , but will be many times more useful in the upcoming offensive. ■

    yes the contract for 24 was ended last months

    bmod is wrong, in 2021 8 ariplanes received (6 in 277º regiment and 2 in Lipetsk)

    so we have:

    126 from 2010 to 2020 (32+94) , total 10 squadrons Lipetsk included
    8 in 2021
    10 ? in 2022 (the contract of 24 are 2 new squadrons)
    12 ? in 2023

    the current contract probably are for replace losses, then does not increase the number of squadrons

    Good point and how many extra aircraft have been ordered under new contracts not announced. It was stated that aircraft deliveries this year would double last years totals (27) and that was more then originally scheduled for 2023.

    Two Su-34 from the last batch Nº38 and Nº39 , probably for replace losses in any regiment
    there are an inscription unther the wing

    Su-34 scattered across several bases in addition to those homebases of the bomber regiments

    also in Marinovka, Buturnilovka even in Belbek


    About the numbers in blue Nº01...Nº06 ..., this are old Su-34 after overhaul/modernization, probably for a new regiment

    This year 12 new Su-34s have been delivered and several more after the MLU/Modernization, it must be taken into account that the Voronezh regiment was received between 2010 and 2013

    The account is very simple, from 2010 to 2020, 10 squadrons were received, including extras to replace losses, 126 aircraft.

    Between 2021 and 2023, 30 Su-34s have been received, which fulfills the contract of 24 (2 more squadrons) and losses are also beginning to be replaced.

    The contract signed last year without a specified number is to replace losses, so when it ends there should be 12 full squadrons
    Given the level of losses in Ukraine, at the end of 2024 they would be covered if some 14-16 Su-34 are delivered in 2024.

    The next contract for 76, is 6 more squadrons and 4 extra airplanes , which will bring the total to 18 squadrons by 2028-2030, including one in Lipetsk

    Impressive but I wonder why they do not develop a dedicated Su-57 version for a similar ground attack role considering that most of the countries on Russia's western borders and eastern borders now have advanced Anti Air capabilities.

    Su-57 is a frontal figther for multi-domain air superiority operations, is a different role, Su-34 is much larger and is a bomber

    I do not discard, Su-75 version for replace Su-25 in its role

    I dont know what you think it is "advanced anti-air capabilities", the better anti-air capability was Ukraine with 200 S-300 launchers and about 75 Buk, all soviet made, the rest is a trash can, but of course, even Sadam air defence hit more 100 western aircraft

    The patriot battery operated in Kherson has been obliterated

    Impressive but I wonder why they do not develop a dedicated Su-57 version for a similar ground attack role considering that most of the countries on Russia's western borders and eastern borders now have advanced Anti Air capabilities.

    Technically the Su-57 being a 5th gen fighter is an omnirole aircraft and should be able to perform the role of strike and air to air fighter missions and also target information collection duties all in the same flight. It can carry drones and air to ground missiles including hypersonic missiles as well as air to air weapons and of course anti radiation missiles.

    A new version of the Kh-31 ARM and anti ship missile is reportedly being developed with the ramjet component replaced with a scramjet motor for much higher flight speeds for anti radar and anti ship use.

    There are a whole range of new air to air and air to ground and air to sea weapon types being developed for the aircraft... but the new stealthy strike platform will probably be the PAK DA.

    A bit more on this. The Su-34 is certainly establishing itself as a very effective aircraft.

    Similar to what the F-111 could have evolved into if the US grew existing aircraft (low profit) rather than start again from scratch (high profit).



    The Russian Air Force has received a new batch of Su-34 strike fighters, following reports in October that the Defence Ministry had given directives to expand production. Little is known about the size of the latest batch, although units delivered since July 2022 have been produced to the enhanced Su-34M standard, which according to Russian sources has double the combat capacity of the baseline Su-34.

    Notable new features include a dedicated interface for three different types of sensors, namely the UKR-RT pod carrying electronic search measures, the UKR-OE camera pod and the UKR-RL which integrates a synthetic aperture radar. Lightly modified specialised variants including an electronic attack jet equipped with the L700 Tarantul ECM pod, and an intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance variant may have also been included in the latest batch, and are being produced in parallel to standard Su-34M models.

    The Su-34 has been by ordered in much greater numbers by the Russian Defence Ministry than any other post Cold War fighter class, with the fleet currently estimated to number over 120 aircraft despite combat losses in the Ukrainian theatre. It is expected to reach close to 200, and remain in production into the 2030s in parallel to the new Su-57 fighter.

    In the first week of October 2023 Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu visited the Chkalov Aircraft Factory in Novosibirsk, Siberia and gave orders to expand production of the Su-34. The minister stressed at the time: “This warplane is the main workhorse, they have four, five sorties every day, so we need to step up, hurry up. We have enterprises that are ahead of schedule for the 2024 program this year. So we need to organise work here as well.”

    The aircraft has proven particularly effective when deploying precision guided glide bombs in Ukraine, including in a close air support role. The delivery of a new batch of Su-34s closely coincides with a report that Russian defence conglomerate Rostec and the state owned Tactical Missiles Corporation are increasing output of such glide bombs, which allow fighters to engage targets at ranges of approximately 70 kilometres. These can deliver much larger payloads than air launched missiles and at a very small fraction of the cost, and can carry not only conventional payloads but also thermobaric rounds optimised for neutralising ground forces in fortified positions.

    A more capable new class of glide bomb, the PBK-500U Drel, is set to enter production before the end of the year and could provide a potent complement to the Su-34M.

    NAPO could be expanded. Or production of the jet can be opened up elsewhere to expand production. Doing so could also ultimately reduce the overall cost of the jet.

    Indeed the Su-34 is a workhorse. What I don't read as much is Su-30SM in this war.
