    The upgraded Su-34 fighter-bomber of the 4++generation has entered service with the mixed aviation regiment of the Central Military District (CVO) in the Chelyabinsk Region. The flight and engineering staff of the regiment received the updated aircraft at the manufacturer's factory and flew to the permanent base airfield in the Chelyabinsk region, the Press Service of the Central Military District reports. The improved Su-34 fighter-bomber is equipped with special equipment that increases the aircraft's ability to detect air and ground targets and expands the arsenal of used means of aircraft destruction. The Sukhoi company is creating a modernized version of the Su-34 front-line bomber, which is in service with the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS). The upgraded Su-34M fighter-bomber will be delivered to the Russian Aerospace Forces from 2021, UAC General Director Yuri Slyusar said in August 2020. "The appearance of the Su-34M, which we already have and serial deliveries will begin next year, it certainly makes the car unique," Slyusar said on the Zvezda TV channel. According to him, now the VKS is armed with more than 100 Su-34s, reminds the VTS "Bastion". Su-34 bombers have been actively involved in the fight against ISIL in Syria since the first days of the Russian operation in 2015.For five years of combat work in Syria, not a single Su-34 was lost, they have proven to be a reliable and effective machine. The incoming aircraft became the first Su-34 fighter-bomber in the Central Military District, which underwent modernization and entered service with the Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Central Military District in 2021.

    can anyone make clear how many new su-34s and upgraded su-34ms respectively have been contracted?

    Novosibirsk aircraft plant (NAZ) named after V.P. Chkalova

    Last year, the Russian Ministry of Defense signed a three-year contract for the construction of a large batch of front-line Su-34 fighter-bombers. According to official information, in May 2020, a contract was signed with the Sukhoi company for the production of 76 Su-34 aircraft. According to plans, until 2027, it is planned to build from 8 to 14 Su-34 aircraft every year.

    According to the TASS news agency, at first a batch of 20 Su-34 aircraft will be built at NAZ, and then upgraded Su-34M aircraft will be built and handed over to the Russian military.

    My understanding is that the last batch ordered was for 24 not 20 and then the new 76 Su-34M. They mentioned that all the first batches was to be upgraded to the new standard. Obviously that is starting already.

    From this and other articles, the last contracted 76 new builds are to be Su-34M's while the older Su-34's are to be upgraded to the Su-34NVO standard.

    Apparently it's getting an 'improvement of the sh141 radar system to sh141m standard comprising the V400M radar and K-030BM computer' (Sukhoi, Key Publishing 2020)

    Do you have the key publishing link by any chance for my self interest? If rostec presented 3 GaN EW airborne systems in 2014 for su-34, Su-57 and su-35, While the su-34 and su-57 received new radars designated with M in front of them, i wonder what the chances are the su-35 has new radar.

    You'd have to buy it. I'd say it was worth it.

    All I want to hear is that they will be installing Kinzhals on new Su-34s

    I would say new missiles being developed for the Su-34 will make the Kinzhal look a bit boring to be honest...

    I would think hypersonic scramjet powered Zircon and mini Zircon like missiles similar to the Brahmos and Brahmos M type but based on Zircon instead of Onyx would make a lot of sense.

    The Su-34 is a tactical strike aircraft so ground and sea based targets being attacked with manouvering mach 9-10 speed missiles with a range of 1-2 thousand kms would be very useful... the shorter range being useful because the reduced size would allow it to carry 6 instead of one...
