    Also, from 2009 to now there has been produced 4 + 12 Su-30M2 from KnAAZ.
    With Flankers from IAPO, it counts some new 150 Flankers. Not bad at all.
    Hellducks are over 100 delivered as well.
    Thanks

    4 + 16 Su-30M2.

    More than 150 new fighter Flankers at this point, going by end-of-2016 numbers:
    12 Su-27SM3
    20 Su-30M2
    83 Su-30SM
    58 Su-35
    Total: 173

    In addition there have been 98 IIRC Su-34s that have flown to date, but that includes a number of experimental air-frames and pre-serials. However 100 delivered for VKS service will be broken this year soon.

    Su-30SM...no losses yet.

    I am talking about new birds, not upgrades.

    Russian UAVs Find Combat Missions over Syria


    http://www.ainonline.com/aviation-ne...ons-over-syria
    The number of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) operated by the Russian armed forces has risen from 180 in 2011 to more than 2,000 today, according to the country's defense minister Sergei Shoigu. Three types are known to have been operated over Syria, although none are apparently armed, so that all of the 1,760 Russian combat missions/5,682 airstrikes performed in the area of hostilities during January and February were by manned MiG, Sukhoi, and Tupolev aircraft. The three types includes two domestically produced UAVs and a licensed copy of the IAI Searcher Mk II from Israel.

    Shoigu told the Russian parliament that the army today operates 600 modern UAVs compared with most of the systems in service six years ago that were “outdated pilotless flying vehicles.” Last year 38 more military UAV operating units were established. They include two with the paratrooper force and an unspecified number with Russian special forces that use UAVs for discovering terrorists’ infrastructure and movements and for precise targeting for strike aircraft.

    The most widely used UAV in Syria is the Eleron system employing an Eleron-3SV flight vehicle with a single pushing propeller. Weighing four kilograms (8.8 pounds), it can fly at altitudes between 50 and 5,000 meters (164 to 16,400 feet), following a preprogrammed trajectory or being directed via commands from the ground. Mission equipment is relatively simple 10x optical payload.

    Another popular system is the Orlan (also referred to as Leer) employing a 18-kg (39.7 pounds) Orlan-10 vehicle with a tractor propeller. Unlike the rather simple Eleron-3, it carries a gyro-stabilized platform for sensors that include high-resolution electro-optics. The Orlan can operate at night and in adverse weather conditions, typically loitering at height of 5,000 meters for up to 16 hours. For uninterrupted transfer of images in real time, the UAV should stray no more than 120 km (75 miles) from its base. But in an autonomous mode, the Orlan-10 can operate 600 km(373 miles) off-base following a preprogrammed trajectory.

    The third type in Syria is the 454-kg Forpost, the licensed copy of the IAI Searcher Mk II. Russia has been a customer of UAVs from Israel since 2008, when it acquired a small number and used them during the war with Georgia. In 2009, Russia formally purchased 12 IAI BirdEye-400, I-View Mk150 and Searcher II systems for $53 million. Later, it placed follow-on orders for 36 and 15 more systems worth $150 million. A licensed production agreement followed in October 2010. Russia began using imported parts in 2012, and proceeded with gradual localization of airframe parts and mission equipment.

    Meanwhile, in 2011 the Russian defense ministry placed an order worth nine billion roubles for 10 more Searcher systems each consisting of three UAV and a control station. Russia also procured 27 Zastava systems—a licensed copy of IAI BirdEye 400—for 1.34 billion roubles ($22.7 million).

    Recent photos from Syria reveal that the Zala-421-16 has been deployed there. This dual-purpose system developed within Russia became operational in 2014, first with the Ministry for Emergencies as a means of land surveillance. It was later accepted by the armed forces. The air vehicle weights between 8 and 11 kg (17.6 to 24.3 pounds); flies at altitudes of up to 3,600 meters (11,811 feet); and loiters at speeds up to 110 km/h (59 kts).

    It is interesting to note that Russian state arms exporting agency Rosoboronexport has recently stated that the Orlan, Eleron and Zala-426-16 are combat-proved and internationally competitive, so that they have the potential to fill a distinct niche in the global market for such equipment.

    At the same time, the appearance of a Russian UCAV in Syria has long been expected, as the civil war there provides a suitable environment for assessment of new combat systems. Shoigu said that a total of 162 types of new and upgraded systems have been combat tested in Syria, of which only 10 systems did not meet expectations. “Orders for them have been cancelled or suspended until manufacturers prove their characteristics are up to advertised performance,” the minister explained.

    - Chinese Su-27SKs have been acquired well before any multimode N001VE radars became available..
    - Su-27SK are completely different from J-11A, BTW..
    - Su-27SKs were not multimode
    I hope you do not get upset that about the different versions of the J 11(A,B,C,D) , so far I have been considered Deino as authority on the subject, since Internet there are such contradictory sources about different versions of J 11. Yet as I am not won the lottery to buy his book, the same has been already in my shopping list, then you can feel free to correct any information posted here with any sources that you believe as reliable, of course that has been included your guesswork.

    Below is the table with the different purchases made by China with both the Su-27SK and the Su-30MKK and Su-30MK2:

    Fighter Mission Radar Year Contract Production Start End Deliveries Total
    Su 27SK Air Defense N001 1991 Russia 1991-92 1992 26
    Su 27SK Air Defense N001 1994 Russia 1994-95 1996 22
    Su 27SK Air Defense N001 1996 China 1998 2004 95
    Su 27UBK Air Defense N001 1999 Russia 1999 2002 28
    Su 30MKK Multirole N001VE 1999 Russia 1999 2004 72
    Su 30MK2 Multirole N001VEP 2002 Russia 2002 2004 24


    China had been produced only 15 Su-27SK between 1998 and 2000 , so the others 80 Su-27SK as well as 28 Su-27UBK were all produced after 2000 until 2004.

    This can not be characterized as evidence that 108 Su-27SK/UBK could have been equipped with the N001VE or N001VEP multimode radars from Su-30MKK and Su-30MK2, instead than the original N001 from Su-27SK in the early 1990s.

    It was interesting that China had been kept the Su-27SK in production until 2004 in the same standards that it first batch were acquired in 1991, with only air defense capability, and so far it has been limited to engage single target with BVR SARH missiles. Despite that China had brought the Su-30MKK and the Su-30MK2 with multirole capabilities.

    Those 12 Su-27SM3 has been most advanced among the Su-27SM, once it could happened because it were new , and then it has been received the latest upgrade package, or perhaps because it were already more advanced than Su-27S/P, once the Su-27SK were in production for China in the early 2000.

    In fact there are whispers, or maybe I have been listen voices in my head , that Russia could have been considering to create new simpler versions of the Su-35 in reason of same demands for possible customers, in this case should have been a lot of speculations like the engines could have been chosen among the Al-31FU with TVC from Su 30SM/MKI , as well such less expensive version from Al-41S without TVC. The radar could have been remained as the PESA radar N0035 Irbis E or another like the PESA version from Zhuck MSE, once the latter has been produced for the MiG 29K among others avionics items.

    The main idea would be to repeat the same concept of the Su-30MK, once the Su-30MK could have been classified between two main classes, as the less complex and expensive like the Su-30MKK( China, Vietnam, Venezuela, Indonesia,Russia, Uganda and Angola) without canards, TVC and PESA radar N011 Bars, while the most advanced and expensive like the Su-30MKI ( India, Algeria, Malaysia, Russia) that has been equipped with: canards, TVC and radar PESA N011 Bars.

    If the Al-41S would be replaced by other version without TVC, or even by the Al-31F with TVC, certainly in both cases there are considerable loss of capabilities in relation of the Su-35S, but at the present time with the great reduction of weight of the avionics, especially of the radars, as well as the airframe of the Su 35 has been optimized from the legacy Su-27M , this whispers at least sound not totally impossible.

    Certainly that loss of capabilities could be offset by decreasing the acquisition and operating costs, as well as the option for simpler avionics like PESA radars could remained as option, especially if an AESA version of N035 should not be too far away to reach the Su-35S.

    There are two fact in these rumors: first it should be that reason about Russia has been keeping the designation Su-35 for export, while Russia maintains the designation Su-35S for itself, once that each possible customer could have been opting for a specific version like it happened with the Su-30MK, then it would be less confusing than the designation of Su-30MK has been created in the 90s for the export version of the Su-30M.

    The second reason it were more obvious, once it happened before with Su-30MK , as well as the Su-27SK that were less advanced than multirole Su-27M( canards, N011 radars without PESA), but the Su-27M didn't enter in production in the 90's, while the Su-27SK had been brought in considerable quantities in the 90's.

    Indeed the Su-27M are dead, but the Su-27M were renamed as Su-35 in the mid-90s, and now the Su-35S are quite alive and inherited the identity of Su-35 for export ...

    It is not that complicated, really.. J-11A = more or less exact copy of Su-27SK, A-A only, uses Russian missiles, J-11B = multirole, glass cockpit, WS-10A engines, uses Chinese missiles, J-11D = further upgrade with AESA

    I am not sure if the N001VEP could work with the old radar indicator on the Su-27s.. I think the PLAAF Su-27s have been untouched, but the N001 radar on the J-11As must have been enhanced in some way to integrate the R-77 missiles.. that indicates some radar channel upgrades/add-ons.. the J-11A also has a different display/indicator in the cockpit.. but I don't think any A-G modes were added on this version..

    That was exactly the reason why the J-11B has been developed.. and later all those J-11BSs, J-16s and J-11Ds.. why rework the old and tired Su-27s?

    Complete nonsense, IMHO.. For several reasons..
    - Al-31FU engines are not directly replaceable with 117S.. the fan diameter is not identical, it would require rework of engine nacelles
    - an Su-35S using 117S without TVC would require complete rework of the flight control system - the thing has deleted canards because of the TVC, do you want to add them back on?
    - Zhuk-MSE has a slotted array antenna, PESA would be Zhuk-MSFE.. I don't think that this variant has ever flown.. besides, it comes from a competitor (Phazotron-NIIR, Irbis is made by Tikhomirov-NIIP) and is completely unproven.. waste of time and money, IMHO
    - Zhuk-MSE was never installed on the MiG-29K, that is Zhuk-ME, by all means a completely different radar (smaller and lighter)

    The reasons were two entirely different companies producing these.. IAZ (Irkutsk) and KnAAZ (Komsomolsk).. IAZ has made breakthrough with the Indian version Su-30MKI while KnAAZ has made headlines with the Chinese version Su-30MKK/MK2 and then the export balls got rolling for both.. IAZ has also proposed a low-end upgrade called Su-30KN (no canards, no TVC, N001 upgrade) but it was rolled over by the Su-30MKK and never got any orders..

    This whisper is totally improbable.. It would require a significant rework of the Su-35S in order to get less capable version (WTF?).. besides that, KnAAZ is totally full with Su-35S, preparations for PAK-FA and civilian projects, it would make absolutely no sense..

    There is information that some Ukrainian companies helped China to modernize and upgrade N001 radar of Su-27SK or even N001VE radar of Su-30MKK to something near or equivalent to N001VEP radar of Su-30MK2.

    In the Ukrainian Radionix's proposal, the upgraded N001 radar has full and enhanced air/surface/sea search modes. After upgrade, it also can guide R-77s and Kh-31A missile.

    Ukranians firms are incapable of doing it. Not even third world countries award the upgrade contracts for such work.

    They confirmed and proved they could do that even better than "Russian well-known by-pass concept of N001 upgrades".

    It is only a rumor but when PLAAF J-11 started flying with R-77 people speculated that it was due to Ukrainian or Belorussian assistance. Who exactly helped with upgrades is not known. They might have hacked it on their own. Original J-11 had no R-77 compatibility. They were basically locally assembled Su-27SK. 3rd batch of Su-27UBK and Su-30MKK/Su-30MK2 are R-77 compatible because they carry N001VE (Su-27UBK/Su-30MKK) and N001VEP (Su-30MK2) radars. J-11 still carries the N001/N001V. As far as we know J-11 was not never upgraded with N001VE. So somebody had to tinker with the N001/N001V without Russian help.

    On the eve of the hypersonic

    Corporation "Tactical Missiles" celebrates anniversary

    http://nationaldefence.ru/includes/p...5/detail.shtml

    One of the most successful Russian defense-industrial holdings - Corporation "Tactical Missiles" celebrates its 15th anniversary. The corporation was established by decree of President of the Russian Federation January 24, 2002 At that time, in accordance with the program of development of the military-industrial complex until 2006, began the creation of a number of defensive holdings, successfully survived a period of decline and degradation of the Russian defense industry in the 1990s. Survive while many defense companies failed due to export contracts. Here and at the Corporation "Tactical Missiles" in the early 2000s. dominated by export orders, which accounted for 90% of revenue. And today, more than 70% of the income of the enterprise corporation provide deliveries for state defense orders.


    Ivan Karev

    At the same time production increased significantly. According to the general director of the corporation Boris Obnosova, compared with 2003, the volume of sales increased by almost 30 times. This, of course, would not be possible without a significant renewal of production assets of enterprises. The first thing encountered the head of the new holding company 15 years ago - the repair and reconstruction of the shops. Boris Obnosov recalled that in the early 2000s had to start with repairing roofs and pavement on the territory of the enterprise. In parallel, the updating of machine park, then had to begin to address personnel problems.

    Overcoming these problems, the corporation grew, opening new foreign markets, to intensify the work on the old.

    Today, as has been said, the main customer KTRV became the Russian Armed Forces. In accordance with the state program of armaments for 2011-2020. (LG-2020) Corporation conducts extensive work to develop a new generation of high-precision missile.

    With the direct participation of the organizational and methodological leadership and specialists Corporation has developed and agreed with the Ministry of Industry and the Ministry of Defense "Complex target program of creation of aircraft armament" of the new generation. The document approved by the Military-Industrial Commission under the Russian government. Today, on the basis of this program, the holding company held a large range of works on the development of guided weapons systems for military aircraft of the fifth generation. In particular, many of the TSA, which will soon become part of the on-board weapons fighter T-50, has the final stage of flight tests.

    Today, the corporation "Tactical Missiles" is an integrated structure, bringing together more than three dozen companies with a total workforce of more than 50 thousand people, which provide development and production.:

    • Aircraft tactical, operational and strategic and tactical guided weapons, including hypersonic;

    • Marine offensive and defensive systems, including anti-ship missiles and land-based and underwater weapons and underwater engineering special-purpose funds;

    • missiles with intercontinental ballistic missiles;

    • space systems and devices;

    • products based on dual-use technologies in the fields of aviation, aerospace, marine, and information technology.

    From year to year growing corporate investment in the modernization of production. If for this purpose has been spent 6.39 billion. Rubles, in 2016 this figure exceeded 36.3 billion. Rubles in 2013.

    On the basis of the parent company commissioned a unique corporate laboratory and design center, equipped with modern stands ground tests. The centerpiece of a large-scale project was a new set of HIL, providing fine-tuning of various types of guidance systems in a wide range of frequency characteristics of homing heads.

    Equipped with domestic equipment, according to their characteristics of the complex is not inferior to Western models. Threefold stands have high dynamics and positioning accuracy. Testing of control signals carried out up to the corner units minutes.

    The unique anechoic chamber has the most modern test equipment. Operating room camera provides high-quality absorbent materials that provide high levels of electromagnetic characteristics (radiogermetichnosti, anechoic and others.).

    To ensure reliable and efficient work of laboratory-Design chassis is equipped with the most modern information and communication structure, high-speed data transmission channels, including satellite, with high (up to 10 Gbit / s) bandwidth, high-performance computing systems with a virtual server architecture.

    The company is surely among the first hundred of the world's leading enterprises of the military-industrial complex (in the ranking Defense News on the results of 2015 - 37th position, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (the SIPRI) - 35th). Revenues from sales in 2015 increased by 36.3% and exceeded 160 billion. Rubles.

    At present, enterprises Corporation "Tactical Missiles" created a new generation of high-precision weapons, which by its tactical and technical characteristics (TTX) is 2-3 times higher than its predecessors and is the best world samples of combat capabilities.

    In the area of ​​aircraft weapons updated the whole range guided missile (SD) class "air-air" and "air-to-surface".

    New SD-class "air-air" small (RVV-MD), medium (RVV-SD) and long range (RVV-BD) equipped with new guidance systems with improved sensitivity and noise immunity, greatly expanded their effective application area. This allows you to use them at any time, at all angles, in the conditions of electronic countermeasures (ECM), on the background of the Earth and the water surface, including multi-channel fire on the principle of "fire and forget."



    long-range HAEDAT in their performance characteristics has no analogues in the world. The high-energy dual-mode solid-propellant rocket motor provides the use of a range of 200 km and the ability to hit any airborne targets, including maneuvering, in a wide range of heights - from 15 m to 25 km.

    Successfully developing direction of high-speed aircraft missiles family of X-31 on the basis of the combined ramjet engine (ramjet).


    The latest developments - X-31PD (anti-radiation) and X-31AD (antiship) - as compared with the X-31A and X-31P increased flight speed on the trajectory and power of the warhead. Due to the high start-up range (up to 180-250 km)

    X-31PD can be successfully applied from outside the reach of enemy air defense systems. X-31PD, as well as new high-speed anti-radiation X-58USHKE UR, equipped with a wide-range homing, which allows to work effectively on a wide range of current and future goals.

    In the class of multi-purpose SD "air-surface" should be noted the following recent developments:


    • A number of SD type X-38ME modular design, which can be equipped with a combined guidance systems, including the inertial system and options for the final precision-guided munitions on the basis of laser seeker (X-38MLE), thermal imaging (X-38MTE) or active radar (X-38MAE) type . There are options for the use of satellite navigation, as well as military equipment with cassette warhead (X-38MKE);

    • UR-X 59M2E complex missile "Gadfly-ME", designed to engage a wide range of fixed ground and sea targets with known coordinates of the location. The complex can be used around the clock in conditions of reduced visibility;

    • X-59MK2 missile designed to defeat a wide range of stationary ground targets, including non-radar, infrared and optical contrast with respect to the surrounding background.

    One of the most effective types of aviation precision weapons are correctable (KAB) and guided bombs, which are characterized by a combination of a powerful warhead, high precision and shorter compared to guided missiles, the cost. In a number of conditions on the effectiveness of the CABs are commensurate with SD.

    Currently guided bombs can be equipped with a variety of guidance systems, including satellite (KAB-500S-E). Unchanged demand CABs powerful laser-guided bombs which include the CC-1500LG-F-E, used for destroying large fixed ground and surface facilities (bridges, transportation hubs, and military-industrial enterprises and others.).




    Kh-59MK2 is designed to engage a wide range of stationary ground targets, including non-radar, infrared and optical contrast with respect to the surrounding background.

    Significant place in the combined company's products occupy maritime weapon system for the protection of the shoreline coastal states. Created on the basis of a unified anti-ship missile (ASM) X-35E (3M-24E) ship missile system "Uran-E" and mobile coastal missile system "Bal-E" to date have been practically tested in a wide variety of applications.

    In place of the X-35E ASM comes the new generation of SD - X-35UE with significantly improved performance characteristics. Combined guidance system using inertial and satellite navigation, as well as active-passive homing provides X-35UE higher accuracy and noise immunity. Modern "digital board" allows you to implement flexible and effective program guidance attack targets. The use of X-35UE composed KRK "Uran-E" DBK "Bal-E" significantly expands the combat capabilities of these systems.

    In addition to anti-complexes tactical class, which include AAC "Uran-E" and PBRK "Bal-E" Tactical Missiles Corporation offers customers the ship and shore facilities tactical class on the basis of a supersonic cruise missile "Yakhont" (3M-55E), created on companies MIC "NPO Machine Building".

    Onshore - PBRK "Bastion" is able to provide cover in the coastal zone of 600 km and hit the enemy surface ships of any class at a distance of 300 km in the conditions of fire and electronic countermeasures.

    PBRK "Bastion" and PBRK "Bal-E" complement each other, and the integrated use of a solution capable of providing coastal defense tasks in a rational way.



    The range of naval weapons development KTRV not limited to the class of anti-ship missiles. Enterprises Corporation carried out the development and delivery of a number of other systems, such as for the Russian Navy and for export.

    The main products of JSC "Concern" Sea underwater weapons - Gidropribor ", has recently been included in the Tactical Missiles Corporation - torpedo, mine, mine weapons, means of sonar countermeasures system underwater surveillance and protection areas (objects). This, in particular, a universal remote-controlled electric homing torpedo TE-2, which is designed to destroy submarines, surface ships and other targets when fired from submarines and ships in the autonomous and remote-controlled modes.

    It should be noted that the economic situation of the Concern "Gidropribor" when it is turned in the Tactical Missiles Corporation was not brilliant. But now the situation at the enterprises belonging to the "Gidropribor" corrected. An example of this - Caspian "Dagdizel". According to Boris Obnosova, the company was in a very difficult position, the plant has accumulated debts. Through the efforts of Tactical Missiles Corporation, failed to win support from the government: aid has been allocated about 600 million rubles.. One of the results of the work lies in the fact that the Ministry of Defense directly to "Dagdizel" concluded a decent contract for



    Analysis of the military conflicts of the last 40-50 years, and especially the Russian VKS action to defeat the many terrorist organizations in Syria, shows the priority role of aviation precision weapons. If the share of such munitions during the Gulf War was 7-8 percent in 1991, then in Syria in 2015 this figure exceeded 80 percent.

    Experience in the use of videoconferencing Russian aircraft during anti-terrorist operations in Syria precision weapons development and production of Tactical Missiles Corporation is extremely important. According to Boris Obnosova, a new, valuable data set. Because one thing - teaching and testing, and the other - the use of weapons in a real situation, and under the specific conditions of the Middle East war theater. There are different temperature and humidity conditions, the other underlying surface. At certain times in the lower atmosphere there is haze. Clearly, this applies particularly to the work of guidance means, for example, the use of laser illumination purposes.

    But be that as it may, today it is obvious that the future belongs to the TSA completely new technical solutions. First of all, it is a hypersonic aircraft. Corporation "Tactical Missiles" is responsible for this area. Appointed Chief Designer in this area, there is a comprehensive program to hypersonic. They cooperate with the Foundation for Advanced Studies with the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology. However, as noted by Boris Obnosov funded this most important area is not to the extent it deserves.

    Hypersonic


    it is the direction that requires both fundamental and applied research, brings together virtually all areas of engineering. The development of hypersonic technology can be a catalyst for development of the whole industry. The applications of the emergence of hypersonic weapons at a rate in the 7-12 times the speed of sound, will significantly, if not completely limit the ability of the enemy's anti-missile systems. According to the plans of the Corporation "Tactical Missiles", the work in this direction will allow the beginning of the 2020s. reach speeds of Mach 6-7.

    The 2017 Russian Defense Budget is out, according to Janes it got a massive slash of almost 26% by comparison with 2016!
    If so expect salami slice cuts across the board, it will be "interesting" to see the efect on the VVS.

    If Chinese still using R-77. It's either new import or completely changed inside with Chinese systems.

    It also increased rather massively from about 2010-2011 on, so the swing back is natural.

    VKS, btw, not VVS.

    I doubt they decrease budget unless there is some reshuffle in procurement to export first and delay procurement for more advance systems. Flight test of A-100 start this year.

    Lazy to load the Radionix's proposal for N001 radar of Su-27 so I give you the link of their proposal for N019 radar of Mg-29. They both are exacly the same.

    What does Janes mean that defence budget is out for 2017 , Unless they were sleeping for months , Russian defence budget for 2017-19 or 3 years has been declared in October 2016 , In Actual figures , As % of GDP and As % of Total Budget Expenditure

    At the session the lawmakers are considering the budget for the 2017-2019 in the first reading.

    "Spending on defense is one of the priorities, the volume of purchases of arms and military equipment is not reduced despite all the difficulties," he said.

    Earlier it was reported in an explanatory note to the budget, that budgetary allocation under the National Defense section as a whole will amount to 2.8 trillion rubles ($43 bln) in 2017, 2.7 trillion rubles ($41 bln) in 2018 and 2.8 trillion rubles ($43 bln) in 2019.

    In relation to GDP, the share of spending on national defense will be 4.7% in 2016, 3.3% in 2017, 3% in 2018, 2.8% in 2019.


    The share of defense in total federal budget spending in 2017 will amount to 17.5%, in 2018 and 2019 it will be 17% and 17.6%, respectively.

    They can make all the proposals but I doubt Chinese using missile whose electronics are 20 year old.

    This is quite misleading news, because in to the 2016 budget was injected a very large early repayment of defense industry loans for 2017 and 2018. Its worth well over 700 billion rubles. If those payments were part of the 2017 and 2018 budgets as originally intended, then the budget level from 2015 to 2018 would be balanced. Following picture demonstrates this quite clearly:
