    @ Sintra

    I dont read Russian, but doesnt that contradicts this:

    Although it was previously offered to India with Phazotron-NIIR Zhuk-A AESA radar, the Russian military preferred the less-advanced Zhuk variant with slotted array. It can track up to 30 airborne targets at a range of 99 mi. (160 km)

      @haavarla
      Full 3D , it seems.

      The presence of all-aspect nozzle radically distinguishes the engine of the MiG-35 from engines with variable thrust vectoring AL-31FP is installed on the heavy su-30SM. Older brothers it is a single design. While the "MiG" is two separate units.

            So what's the news on AAM's like R-37 and R-77-1? Been quiet. Same goes for S-500 and 350 development. Wondering if anyone here has up to date info willing to share?

            Awesome pictures of the MiG-35 BTW. Looking nice.

              R-77-1 is in service. Has been popping up on Su-35s in Russia here and there.

              R-37 has not been bought yet.

                The Chinese order for 2 Be-200 is confirmed, with an option for another 2.
                Also included is the purchase of 2 Be-103 and the license production of the type in China, as well as the establishment of a local service center and a training facility in China.

                    Is that Argentinian order realistic?

                    Izvestya (I know, but these news actually are believable) is reporting that Army Aviation is going to be increased in strength by two new "brigades" of about 100 attack and transport helos each.

                        In Russia, resumed production of engines for carrier-based fighters su-33

                        Besides the SVP upgrade for it, what other upgrades were applied (if any) to Su-33? Or was the SVP the only one?

                            Some air defense drills took place recently, included the use of new radars Podlet, Kasta-2-2, and most interesting, Nebo-M:

                              They seem to have got some variant of SVP-24 upgrade for Su-33 nothing else beyond that but with Engine production again starting they might do some deep upgrade based on 27SM3 variant

                                    That would be reasonable. SVP-24 upgrade for its air to ground capabilities mixed in with radar that gives it performance closer to Su-30MK2 in terms of air to air. So long as they can integrate new R-77-1 onto it, it will make the Su-33 very good aircraft for Kuznetsov and other possible aircraft carriers in both protecting the airspace and quick air to ground maneuvers.

                                      IMO it has more chances than other (Mirage, MiG-29s and so on) as several agencies would be involved, but I will only believe it when I see the Berievs landing in Argentina.

                                          Those are long wave radars in the pics no ? The ones that can see stealth jets *citation needed.
