    400km range is when four operate in sync using a data chain method of scanning. It is purely a search mode, not a tracking mode.

    Nice. There can never be enough Flanker Pics in this thread

    One of the four Su-30M2 i presume?

    Edit:
    Wait a minute..
    Thats not a Su-30M2.

    It got a singel nose wheel, the IRIST is on senter of canopy..
    Must be an older Su-27UB then..

    Long awaited dark Flanker, are you happy now?? Geez, but glossy paint.., looks ugly, hopefully new MOD orders will clear up this mess with camouflage even in Russian MRO bussines.

    indeed why glossy and why inconsistency.
    best grey so far is the new Su-35 one.

    Sigh.. Can't they just let the Algerians or Indians paint all RuAF flankers (yes all of them, regardles of what numerical or alfabetical suffix they may have) and then be over and done with all these endless glossy LSD-patterns once and for all??

    FFS, how hard could it be? Cant take much more now...

    I like the new dark grey scheme. Reminds me of MiG-28 :diablo:

Well, well, a week ago you were complaining about Russian media spreading lies about "Su-34 growing pains"....

    If it was a navigational antenna of any kind, shouldn't be on the back of the plane, behind the cockpit instead of the nose and pointing forward?

    Why just on the back? always to cover the front and rear hemisphere do not you think? You cant do that with only one antenna on the tail, moreover it looks very similar to the short range nav antenna...

    The 'Urals Civil Aviation Enterprise' (ОАО «Уральский завод гражданской авиации») successfully flight tested the first of its locally assembled 'IAI Searcher 2' (Russian name 'Forepost') UAVs last month.

    Apparently the temperature was -30degC!!

    Speaking of Su-35S , does anyone have a rough idea when the 6 Su-35S delivered ( formally ) last year will be ferried to their units? Thanks.

    Love those Su-34 shots.

    Interesting but seems a bit optimistic:

    - Indian AF - has ordered more Su-30's (270 now ordered). Given local input into assembly it's probable that any additional fighters are brought from here.

    - Indian Navy - yes, very probable if carrier plans proceed. Remember though that Rafale also comes in carrier capable version.

    - Syria - unlikely. Civil War shows no sign of abating and the country probably won't have any funding to replace fighters once it's finished.

    - Iran - also unlikely. The Iranians don't seem interested in acquiring new foreign jets.

    - Zimbabwe - as stated in article no cash.

    - Peru - Unlikely - they're focusing on maintaining existing assets.

    - Cuba - Extremely unlikely as country is broke.

    - Sudan - definite possibility

    - Bangladesh - Unlikely, they appeared unhappy with MiG-29

    - Burma - definite possibility

    - Malaysia - again unlikely. They're looking at retiring the MiG-29 as they're not happy with MiG-29. http://www.flightglobal.com/news/art...ghters-327276/

    Given their current preference for Western-Eastern split I suspect the contract will be either for JAS-39 or F/A-18E/F.

    Haven't they already opted for MiG-29SMT?

    Who said the Bangladesh AF is unhappy with the Fulcrum? Every report I have read, including the recent AFM article, suggests the Bangladesh AF is very happy with the Fulcrum

    In addition, Peru has recently acquired new MiG-29s (SM version I believe, no humpback)

    Was the number of Su 34 recently delivered to Rus VVS in Dec/Jan 10 or 11?

    Malaysia is also keeping the MiG-29 for longer than originally envisaged.
    I think a UPG type upgrade would be smart in their case.

    12 Su-25s were upgraded in 2012.
    Another 12 in 2013.

    Peru's MiG-29 are upgraded 9.13/9.13SEs and UBs (which they bought in the nineties). Apparently they are at a standard somewhat similar to SM, full A-A and A-G PGM capability, IFR , modernized radar etc.( two-seaters have CHFL strakes ahead of fins like the 9.53 UBs, plus IFR)

    There were 5 Su-34 delivered to Baltimor/Voronezh in December , there are 5 more to be ferried to their unit about January 15 apparently.

    There are no plans to acquire MiG-29 so far. I thought those SMT rejected by Algeria were a good option for many countries, as RSK MiG could not afford to have another scandal. By the way, I did not know about the 250 million $ deposit.

    There is also Kazakhstan as a potential buyer.

    Currently it is just unit. Lipetsk.

    Too late, would be a waste of money.
