    About NAPO. They have other production orders besides the Su-34.
    Russian Aviation prospect will only gain from re-tooling NAPO.
    After the HellDucks orders are through, they will shift their production to other products, thus keeping the workforce and their skills.

    A win win situation if you ask me..
    Thanks

    So, what is it, large and complex or NOT large and complex?

    Because i reacted to you saying that it is NOT complex. Also, it is shmuck (or schmuck), get it right fool.

    I am perfectly aware the program got **** all funding but =/= equal to it NOT being complex.

    Yeah, i read some days ago about it; Going by memory, due to be transfered to Akhtu by the end of the week, 6 of them. Silly to say it is 6 of them tho, considering S-1 til S-4 are already there. Unless KnAAPO has built S-8, S-9 and S-10. But so far only seen confirmation of bort numbers up to and including 07 (S-7).

    Actually the last contract that was signed was for half the value you are quoting, at around $40 mil each. There was a separate contract for engines so I think that might not have been included in the $40 mil. The last flyaway cost quoted for a 'made in India' Su-30 was around $50-$60 mil late 2011. http://www.icast.org.in/news/2011/nov11/nov02ia.pdf

    Apparently it should happen on the 28th (Monday) . Still not clear if it's 6 being flown from KnAAPO or 6 formally induced (with 3-bort 05 , 06, 07 red?- to come from KnAAPO). Since at the moment there are at least SEVEN Su-35S, perhaps 01 black will not be transferred to VVS and will be retained as a dogship, since it's fairly non-standard.


    PS: Oh, great to see the new Hellducks arriving at Voronezh. How many are in service now again , 25?

    Ah here we go, maybe the news i read said Monday. Cool that they are inviting to Akhtu, very few spotters there, hence why i dont look forward to T-50 being transfered to there...

    And yes, there is some confusion about what they actually mean with those 6 fighters. As i said, four of them are in GLITs already, so if 6 newly built Su-35S arrive from KnAAPO it will be... surprising. If not, S-1 is the biggest candidate to not be induced indeed.

    Yup, 25 is correct although first one is not flying anymore i think.

    I don't think I've seen the Indian MiG-29UPG with Kh-31s before:

    http://www.airliners.net/photo/India...UPG/2218049/L/

    Which is odd, as this photo appears to have been taken during MAKS 2011 - you'd expect a handful of images to have turned up, with so many cameras available to snap one!

    Neither do i, since that's a H-35 ( or westernized, Kh-35 ). Most likely it was not taken during the show, or taken in area with not alot of access.

    According to the info on the photo it was taken at MAKS on Friday 19 August 2011.

    It was taken from the south side of the runway - from about where I was on the Saturday - but it didn't show on that day

    I was also there on the Thursday - and photographed the 'museum' aircraft that you can see in the background of the MiG-29 photo.....



    Note also the row of public toilets behind the MiG.

    I wonder why it only made one appearance - when I wasn't there!!!

    Three more Mig-31BM Delivered.

    Interesting read about the upgrade, but no details though.

    I spent 10 minutes looking for a KAB in the link above - and wondered what you were talking about....

    Then I realised you meant Hellduck 12 in the photo in post #311

    Confused of Malmesbury.....

    It either flew several times during the show.

    I have several shots of it from MAKS 11 without Kh-35. Knew i had seen it with it before:

    Another angle of the photo. Apparently the Hellduck next to 12 also has a KAB-500Kr.

    Why do the Su-34s in the green/black color have a grill on their tail sting and the ones in the blue don't?

    Difference in series. And it is not green/black color. Aubergine/blue ones are later series.

    IIRC that's because they have an APU

    Wonder if they'll refit the older series. It reminds me of the Su-24 FENCER-A/B/C (i.e. each type different but never bothered to give it a new designation until Su-24M FENCER-D).

    They are not carrying the dark camo because they have APU, they carry dark camo and have APU because they were made later. 02 for instance still have the non dark camo, and carries fences and APU. As i said, difference in series and hence the time they were made at. Obviously 02 is the first aircraft to receive improvements (APU + fences) and was painted in the "old" camo prior to the "new" one was ordered.

    Three Su-35S' arrived in Akhtu today. Hopefully someone did the tour MoD invited at.

    Wonder if they just used stock pics, or they already started painting the Hellducks in the old cammo.

    Apparently it was restricted to three (3) cameras from three (3) biggest channels. Aka state owned channels...

    That is the only pic i have found as well, that isn't from Akhtu even. Odd that it is 08 tho.

    I was confused for a second as well when i saw it some days ago, but it is old picture. Notice lack of fencers + the new sensor in front of windshield.

    All five that was recently delivered are aubergine.

    PS: Report said in nearest days three more will arrive. I guess 05 will be with that batch. Sure was surprising to see 08 all of the sudden. Next ones should be 05, 09 and 10 then. But they have fooled us before... (like today)
