    One thing I noticed about the new 'Hellduck' Su-34 bort numbers is the style of the numeral 1.

    On all other Russian aircraft I have seen, the numeral 1 (one) is just a
    straight bar.







    On the new camo'ed Su-34's the numeral 1 has a 'hook' at the top.

    I had to make my model as bort 05 - because nowhere in my collection of Russian bort number decals did I have any in the new style to make bort 10......



    Any photos of other Russian types with the 'hooked' number one ???

    Quick question: when were the Su-34s fitted with wing fences? Were they suffering from uncommanded roll in certain part of the flight regime (most likely transonic?)

    Any clue will be appreciated.

    Anybody know the latest on the delivery date for the SU-35S to the airforce. Remember reading early December in one article. Then late December in a later article. Update on this schedule.

    just curious, why are the greys so inconsistent, the type used for the helicopters, transports are different and the ones on the fighters and yak-130 are also different even between them.

    Would be interesting to see which borts it will be considering S-2, S-3 and S-4 has GLITs markings. Then again that doesn't mean those will fly over to Lipetsk, but might just continue be based in Akhtu.

    I think we will see plenty of pics from Lipetsk soon enough Mack8.

    Russian MOD to order ( or have ordered? translation is not clear) 20 An-70:
    http://rian.com.ua/economy/20121227/336618701.html

    Speaking of the Su-35S's, my understanding of the news regarding the formal transfer is that they will be transferred to their units in the "near future", which can mean anything from a few days to weeks ( it is unclear if those from Akthubinsk will be relocated as well). Probably there's still some last minute tests and checks to be done.

    Incidentally, have no idea how accurate, but some on russian fora mentioned about the Su-35S's being expected at Dzemgi. (?)

    All i have heard about in earlier articles is that they will be sent to Lipetsk, which makes sense, kind of like they did with Su-34's.

    PS: Regarding the 20 An-70's, they havent been ordered yet. Nothing is signed.

    According to Sukhoi.org, the second lot of 5 Su-34 have been formally handed over to VVS, and will be flown to their bases in the near future.

    "Taking into account the development of the whole aircraft family on the basis of Il-76MD-90A (including advanced tanker aircraft), we believe that the order backlog for these jets will reach 1 trillion rubles soon", - Viktor Livanov said.

    To add on to that:

    http://www.navy.ru/news/navy/?ELEMENT_ID=133395

    Il-22 replacement will be on Il-476 basis.
    However, Izvestia is the source...soo...
    Curious the Tu-204 is not being sought for this purpose.

    New MiG-31?

    I have never seen the pylon arrangement like this on a MiG-31. Could this be new, or even a new wing? Note the new mirror on top of the pilot's canopy.

    That is upgraded MiG-31BM.

    The 4 small pylons are an easy way of IDing it. Btw, the periscope has always been on the 31s.

    Yes, that is MiG-31BM, and for a good while that one in particular was a b!tch for me. I am keeping list of BM frames, and that one lacked in a long string of frames.

    There are also several others details that are different on MiG-31BM, but pylons are a give away. They are able to carry R-73 now, and soon enough, RVV-BD (R-37M).

    TR1, he was referring to the triangle, which is as he is saying, a mirror.

    Does the MiG-31BM have a glass cockpit? I remember hearing that it did somewhere.

    No, it does not. It does however have a bunch of new LCD MFDs, three in the rear seat, one or two for the pilot. Many analogue gauges are retained though, so a partial glass cockpit, maybe?

    Sorry for noob question, but wht role does the guy in the "backseat" have?
    Simmilar to the RIO in the F-14?

    qestion no2: On average, how manny flight hours per year do the Foxhound jocks get nowadays? (I assume they are prioritised over the "regular" Mig-29 regiments)?

    Griffon he's got flight controls,stick,gas and pedals.Berkut posted a vid where u could see that.Seems around 2008 they were given priority and ranks were filled with young pilots,straight from L-39 and flying quite some hours.Russian guys here say fighters fly smhow 80-100 hours a year depending on type i recall reading

    Nice photos of Mig-31BM cockpits. I was expected that back seat operator have three LCDs, but have only two.
