    What was the reason for such violent flameout? An object on a runway which might have ruptured the port main gear leg and perforated the wing fuel tank? Or a massive inner port engine failure? Can't see it clearly..

    Why? The Malaysians coughed up for a system with only a small fighter batch. It can't be that bad per unit with a sizable RuAF order and domestic components.

    Plus, you have to balance cost of the units + integration vs the cost of the purchase as a whole. These are expensive (even @ the rates RuAF pays, which are pretty excellent) large birds that can serve 30+ years.
    Skimping on really (IMO) important defensive components that exist is a poor return on the rest of the purchase you have made. I'd understand if it was just the initial batch of 30 planes, or even the follow up, but at this point we are looking at 60 AF birds + another order for 60-75, and a Navy requirement of up to 50 air-frames. The time/money needed to integrate a defensive suit on par with Su-35 is a no brainer trade-off in my eyes.

    A really good photo-report of production @ Aviastar-SP, Russia's biggest aviation plant. Aviastar now produces the Il-76MD-90 family and derivatives, Tu-204, repairs An-124s, and also are part of the SSJ and MS-21 production chains.
    The plant employs around 10,000 people.

    Watching the newly released video footage, it looks like the Su-34 has a new sensor fitted at the root of the nose pitot.

    Only seen on Bort Red 03 at the moment - anyone know what it is ?? RWR ???

    Screen capture from the video......

    That is just metal for the pitot attachment exposed due to air chipping away the paint...

    It looks like optical sensor. Maybe new MAWS or LWR.

    Looks like a sacrificial surface for protection from the shearing action of airflow at the base of the pilot.

    just see post #67
    ...

    He was my North, my South, my East and West,
    My working week and my Sunday rest,
    My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
    I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.

    The stars are not wanted now; put out every one:
    Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
    Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods:
    For nothing now can ever come to any good.

    Speaking of OKB Tupоlev, here's their 'VR design room':



    ...and the Su-35S was Russia's first military all-digital "paperless" design:

    Well well well. Looks like the obscene "Park Patriot" has claimed another victim; the unique Monino museum. It is scheduled to be closed and the "hard to move" stuff will utilized. IE T-4, M-50 etc, all gone.

    You all bet your ass that in a few years we wont have Monino, MAKS or RAE all because of the retarded Park Patriot.

    More like "Park Idiot". Anyway it is an obscene thing that first opened last summer, it is in Kubinka. Had loads of tanks on static and live display, had fighters doing bombing and whatnot etc. Planes on display too, stands showing new tech etc. As correctly said by Monino people on FB; "Military Disneyland".

    The tank and vehicle display at Park Patriot is great, they cleaned up a lot of vehicles.
    RAE is more about marketing than a domestic display like Patriot, but I suppose they could merge the two.

    But closing down Monino?!?! I refuse to believe the big stuff will be scrapped. !

    I hope it doesn't come to pass - Monino only had a major facelift in 2011 - with a new museum block following a fire there.



    All the GPW airframes are now inside a display hangar - and the outside airframes are slowly being given a facelift (although not always accurately!)....



    ........ AND.......

    Kubinka is a couple of hours drive west of Moscow - so not so easy to get to.
