      Intercepting B-1B. A bit unprofessional imho.

      Yeah, some of those things has been hinted/mentioned for "BM2" so unless it is same person bullsh!tting us, looks like it is real... ECM should be Vitebsk, in theory. I have no idea what to think about the supposedly new radar. D-30F6 should have some growth potential. BM datalink could have massive potential as it is (16 planes instead of 4) so that is probably part of it too.

      EDIT; The BMPD dude from a while back and the airforce one is the same person. Here is 06 (BM2 prototype) being worked upon, taken by him;

        Nice find, so is he talking about the replacement of the old push-pull rods with electro-hydraulic actuators? Wonder why they decided to go with the effort at this point.

              The MiG Corporation reported on capacity utilization until 2025

              http://www.interfax.ru/business/566491

                      It seems that RSK MiG did not drop the M/M2 designation. From the latest take-off magazine:

                      In addition, to meet the requirements of some of the customers, there will be production of the MiG-29M and MiG-29M2 multirole tactical fighters commonised with the MiG-35 and MiG-35UB in terms of airframe and basic aircraft systems, but featuring somewhat more modest capabilities in terms of avionics and weapons.

                      Each pair of the fighters features a 90-per cent or more degree of commonality, with the singleseater and twinseater having the same design of their fuselage forward sections and cockpit canopy with the singleseaters rear combat station occupied by an extra fuel tank or additional avionics units, if the customer wishes so.

                        Well in all the contracts for the Egyptian birds they were referred to as MiG-29M2. And of course the exterior fit, at least, seems identical to the MiG-35 prototypes to date.

                        Which, barring radar, is a good thing as far as the Egyptians are concerned. Quite a more comprehensive electronics fit than MiG-29K/KUB.

                            Russia and Iran Cooperate on UAVs, UCAVs
                            by Vladimir Karnozov
                            - June 15, 2017, 9:48 AM

                            http://www.ainonline.com/aviation-ne...ate-uavs-ucavs
                            Iran is sharing its experience of operating UAVs with Russia, including three years of operations over Iraq and Syria. The cooperation started in October 2013, when Russian air force commander Gen. Victor Bondarev visited Tehran and was presented with a local copy of the Scan Eagle UAV. Both Iran and Russia have operated small UAVs over Syria, but a new dimension to Irans activities there became apparent on June 8, when a U.S. Air Force F-15E shot down an Iranian-made UAV similar in size to the MQ-1 Predator.

                            This medium-altitude long-endurance (MALE) vehicle was later identified as a Shahed 129 UCAV. Operated by Irans Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC), the drone had attacked Syrian rebels operating around At-Tanf who are trained and supported by the U.S. The Shahad 129 has a claimed range of 1,700 km and a 24-hour endurance, and can carry various air-launch munitions including guided missiles. It was not the first Iranian UAV to be shot down by rebel fire, but all previous incidents involved relatively small and inexpensive Ababil and Mohajer series drones for close-in tactical reconnaissance and surveillance.

                            The Russian expeditionary forces in Syria are also operating a total of 80 small UAVs, such as the Orlan-10, Granat, Eleron, Zala-426-16 and Forpost (which is a licensed copy of the IAI Searcher Mk.2). Some time after Bondarevs visit to Tehran, the Russian MoD stated that Iranian drones, along with those from Israel (IAI Bird Eye-400, I-View Mk150 and the like acquired in 2012), were being used for evaluation and for the training of Russian UAV operators. Recently, Russian media has reported the testing of a United 40 Block 5 UCAV with claimed 100-hour endurance that was acquired from the UAEs Adcom Systems.

                            Although there is no information on whether Moscow has acquired any MALE UCAVs from Tehran, practical experience of operating such equipment, especially in a war zone, is of great interest to the Russian military and industry as they are in the early phase of testing new drone types.

                            No UCAVs are known to have entered service with the Russian military yet. RAC MiG demonstrated the Skat UCAV back in 2009, but the Russian MoD opted for proposals from other makers. In 2011 the ministry awarded contracts. Last year, Gromovs Flight Test and Research Institute (local acronym LII) began flight trials of the Orion made by RET Kronshtadt. It has a gross weight of just over one tonne. Also undergoing testing is the five-tonne Altius-M developed by Sokol design bureau.

                            Deputy defense minister, procurement, Yuri Borisov said that four Russian UCAV projects that solve their tasks in tactical, operative and strategic depth are nearing completion, while we have closed down several other projects.

                            The Sukhoi design bureau has been working on heavyweight UAVs, including one with an mtow of 20 tonnes that is expected to fly next year. The Yakovlev design bureau is developing a pilotless version of the Yak-130 armed trainer.

                                They're also separate in RSK MiG web page. AIUI, MiG-29M has basically same avionics set as MiG-29K and -SMT, whereas MiG-35 has an improved "fifth generation" avionics set. Whatever that means, they're pretty nebulous about the details.

                                  If they are going to such lengths, any possibility of bottom being modified for 6 missile conformal pylons? Also, is that a satcom antenna in the photo you posted?
                                  Why the talk of an engine upgrade, and any specifics? Another curious decision.
                                  Any info about the BM3 designation, or is that just for another prototype...and finally what are the chances the MiG-41 name will be tacked on to the new, fleshed out modernization?
                                  I have not followed the project very closely, seems pretty exciting however.

                                          If they are going to such lengths, any possibility of bottom being modified for 6 missile conformal pylons? Also, is that a satcom antenna in the photo you posted?

                                          I will be very very surprised if they modified the belly to fit 6 missiles. If they wanted to stick on more R-37M's on it, pylons would be the way to go. The wings are designed to handle such weight considering fuel tanks and Kh-58/Kh-31 they tried to stick on original BM. Satcom would be my guess too, but yours is just as good as mine. As to MiG-41 designation, very unlikely imho. He used BM2 himself previously and said he didnt remember the izd designation. BM2 would be more likely. I would assume they are uprating the engines (i mean, it was done for 31M so) but i have no idea what to think about the "new" radar.
