    19 is the number of regiments as of April 2017. With the 2017 deliveries it's either 22 or 21 as I don't remember if that 19 figure includes the first 2017 set or just the 2016 sets. Still they were supposed to have 58 by the end of 2020 and that is just never going to happen....

      i got some questions :
      1- did the russians field the R-74M2 yet ? and does anyone has that image that speaks about russians producing IIR seekers?
      The RVV-MD is what they have fielded , The R-74M2 or what ever the next iteration is called with IIR Seeker is under works

      2-how good is that missile vs Aim-9X block II?
      RVV-MD seeker capability is comparabale to Python-4 in that it has 2 colour IR seeker with no two way datalink , The AIM-9X is more advanced system

        For example, in Syria, the Tu-214R proved to be the best.

                Russia considering one-seat Su-34-based aircraft to replace Su-25 fighter jet

                https://www.airrecognition.com/index...ghter-jet.html
                Russia may develop a one-seat attack plane on the basis of the Sukhoi Su-34 (NATO reporting name: Fullback) frontline bomber, Aerospace Force Former Commander-in-Chief and Chairman of the Federation Councils Defense and Security Committee Viktor Bondarev told TASS.

                "I believe that a new attack plane should be made on the basis of the Su-34 aircraft. This is a wonderful plane. It is maneuverable and has eight tons of bomb load, compared to four tons carried by the Su-25 [Frogfoot] plane. It has excellent accuracy," Bondarev said.

                "I believe that it is easier to make a cockpit for one pilot and leave the rest as it is," he added.
                The new attack plane will have virtually the same engines as the Su-34 has.

                "An attack plane will always be needed. The Su-25 plane has been upgraded to the Su-25SM3 version. It has a very reliable airframe and significant upgrade and repair potential," Bondarev said.

                "I believe that it will be in service for another 10-15 years. Naturally, we will have to replace it and various options are being considered now," he added.

                As a source in Russias defense and industrial sector told TASS earlier, work to develop the attack plane on the basis of the Su-34 bomber is expected to begin in 2018.

                      Not a new thing. like Su-35S adverts which use Arly and Typhoon as enemy. No need to take it very seriously.

                                Might has well go for a TU-16"1" (Single seater version of the TU-160)...

                                  A better idea is fixing the Su-25.
                                  Replace those fuel hungry turbojets with modern turbofans. No reason for a subsonic attack jet to have turbojets. Not even in the 70s really.

                                  Oh, and single seat Su-34 already exists, it's called Su-27
                                  How can less be more? It's impossible. More is more.

                                    Su-34 is armored, has fixed inlets and weight up to 40 tons.. the Su-27 is entirely different breed

                                      As if not the Su-25 is armored..
                                      Singel crew Hellduck is Lameduck.

                                        I know the Su-25/39 is well armored but what in the way of armor protection does the Su-34 have? Doesn't seem like the sort of aircraft you'd go low and slow with.

                                          I know I was joking... more or less.
                                          A single seat Su-34 could be put together easily by combining parts of Su-27 and -34. Basically a Su-27 with armored cockpit, Hellducks fixed intakes. Base it on Su-35 for a weapon load of 8 tons less armor and possibly ballast at the rear end.
                                          Or even simpler, take an Su-30SM, make it a single seater and reinvest the saved weight in armor.

                                          But that's probably highly academic because why replace a 10t class subsonic aircraft with a 20t supersonic aircraft... that is pre-Vietnam USAF thinking.

                                          17 mm titanium armor around the cockpit area I think.
