    First photos from MAKS repetitions.

    Yak/Irkut's new bird:





    Either her saturation is up, or this MiG-35 looks extra perky:



    And only one photo of T-50 for now:

      On the Mig Picture. The Red is too much red, so yes too much saturation.
      b.t.w. have they made a single crew mig-35 yet?
      Thanks

        There is the single seat MiG-29M2 for Egypt which to date is basically an identical airfame.

        Pic of the bird, just no seat in the back:



        Recent pic of an Egyptian two seater:

          The challenges that faces Russian Airforce in 2025. Procrastination is unacceptable!

            The TV2 has composite wings only.

              It says pretty explicitly it is wholly-composite, and you can see by the construction:

                Have a look at this video (at 4:15 you see the fuselage's skin):

                  I believe that is the prototype, which was a converted An-2.
                  IIRC it had an accident earlier this year.

                  Thanks for video though, new to me.

                    Thanks. That would explain the altered cockpit's shapes.

                      Seems everyone had a collective amnesia, here is a single seat MiG-35;

                      Also, the extra perky MiG-35 has a reason to be extra perky - because it is new.

                        KRET will show more than 200 projects at the air show in Zhukovsky

                        Some Products will be: Zhuk-AME AESA radar, Su-35S avionics but the main attraction is for avionics for MS-21

                              Russia's fifth-generation fighter- interceptor, will begin in the immediate future, in line with its scheduled start.

                              "We are currently developing the concept of a long-range interceptor aircraft to bring a proposal to our main customer [the Russian Defense Ministry]," Tarasenko said.

                                Yes the PAK-DP, MiG are the chief designers for the future fighter-interceptor to replace the MiG-31 sometime in the 2020's, although I have not heard anything about it recently regarding progress.

                                  MIG-35 top speed now 2700km/hr. i will not surprized domestic verision above 3000km/hr.
                                  https://sputniknews.com/science/2017...e-new-entries/
                                  The observer pointed out that the new plane "has a greater range, a top speed of nearly 2,700 km per hour [300 km more than the base MiG-35], and new engines with a thrust-vectoring module, allowing pilots to perform the most complicated aerobatic maneuvers, as well as modern on-board electronic equipment. The MiG-35S's radar can track up to 30 air targets from distances 160 km away," and ship targets up to 300 km away.

                                    Can track 30 targets!? That's 50% better than the AESA APG83, the latest radar fitted to the F16V...
                                    Are you sure?

                                      This is the performance of current slot array radar. with AESA it will be some where in 400 to 500km with over 60 track.

                                          More modest payload, but still interesting:



                                          And the new composite girl:

                                          '





                                          I do wonder- how easy is it to patch up composite fuselages in the sort of field conditions that An-2s get banged up in?
