    The new IL-276 has "Mechanised Wing" as per this report

    https://sdelanounas.ru/blogs/102186/

    The purpose of the research was to determine the aerodynamic characteristics of a model of an aircraft with a mechanized wing in takeoff and landing modes.

    An important point of the work was the study of the influence of the proximity of the earth's surface - in simulations it simulated the screen - on the airplane landing characteristics. Approaching the land of an aircraft with the released mechanization of the wing can lead to a reduction in load-bearing properties at large angles of attack and changes in longitudinal stability. The performed works demonstrated a slight influence of the proximity of the earth to the aerodynamic characteristics of the airplane model.

    Based on the results of two stages of the model tests - in subsonic and transonic wind tunnels - TsAGI scientists received a large amount of information on the aerodynamic characteristics of the aircraft in takeoff and landing modes. A detailed analysis of the data will allow us to outline ways to improve the layout of the aircraft.

      Russian ministry of defence has ordered 18 Czech Let L-410 planes for special forces of Russian Army. The planes will be assembled in Russia with Czech components and engines in plant of UZGA company where the company makes Izraeli Searcher Mk II drons, Austrian DA 42 planes and US Bell 407 choppers for Russian market as well.

              Correct me if I am wrong but I'm about 100% certain that there is no more L-410 component production going on in the Czech Republic. When the Russians bought out the production line they shipped 100% of the tooling over to Russia and fired all the Czech workers after waiting like 3 years for the union contracts to end.

                AFAIK it is the opposite, to date there is barely any real work past some assembly even being done at Ural.

                    You have "excelent" info and you are educated "very well" via russian/soviet style propaganda appatently... "Empty" the Aircraft Industries companie's plant in Kunovice, full of 870 "fired" Czech constructors and workers, finishs development of new L-410 NG during 2017 with Czech state subsidy, has started Czech Air Force L-410 fleet modernization, is producing 12 brand new L-410 UVP-E20 during 2017 and has got contracts for further 15 planes plus 3 L-410 NG for 2018 year. And Russians „are able“ to produce Walter M601-H80 and Avia V510 propellers "for sure"…
                    And if you want to talk about firing, prepare to speech about UGMK firing from Czech Aircraft Industries company if Russians stop production of L-410 in Czechia, rob production line of L-410 and development of L-410 NG and transfer these to Russia, because all these things were created and are possible due to massive Czech state subsidy and investments…

                      Janes on Kh-50

                      http://www.janes.com/article/76602/r...cruise-missile
                      The missile’s body has a flattened cross-section and faceted sides; this shape combines the requirements of radar cross-section reduction and the most efficient use of the heavy bomber’s weapon bay capacity when loaded on six-round rotating launcher. The guidance system includes strap-down inertial navigation corrected by GPS/GLONASS for the cruise phase, and an Otblesk electro-optical digital scene-matching area correlation (DSMAC) system for use close to the target. Apart from the low-observable airframe, to penetrate the enemy air defence the Kh-50 missile uses low-altitude flight profile and is equipped with self-protection devices, including a small active electronic jammer and towed decoys.

                        Two Yak-130s collided in Bangladesh, but thankfully pilots made it out safe.

                        2 more Su-30SM have arrived in Kazakhstan, for a total of 8 to date, IIRC they have 23 ordered to date, and intend to fill the fleet out to 36 birds.

                          Confirms BUK-M3 has new missile and new radar in this Interview , Shilka replacement likely is the new 57 mm AD Gun with Intelligent Ammo
                          S-400V4

                          Since 2014, the latest modification of the S-300V4 long-range antiaircraft missile system (SAM), the most "long-range" in its class, has come into service. It significantly strengthened the capabilities of the anti-missile component, increased the zone of destruction of aviation assets. Modernization capabilities of the system make it possible to hit ballistic and perspective aircraft.

                          BUK-M2/BUK-M3/MZ


                          The development of medium-range air defense systems of the Buk family continues. There were modifications of "Buk-M2" and "Buk-MZ". The radar of illumination and guidance was introduced into the Buk-M2 air defense system. This made it possible to expand the radio horizon at extremely low flight levels of the target and to increase the range of the cruise missile destruction. Each firefighter provides detection, identification and firing at the same time to four targets from an unprepared starting position.

                          Since 2016, serial deliveries of the newest modification of the Buk-MZ complex have been started. Due to the multifunctional radar station with a phased array antenna and new missiles, the Buk-MZ complexes are 2-3 times superior to the capabilities of the previous SAM systems of this class. One self-propelled unit can fire up to six targets.

                          Tor-M2

                          Since 2016, the newest modification of the Tor-M2 air defense system began to arrive. High maneuverability and fire characteristics allow using them as highly mobile reconnaissance and fire complexes. The use of a new anti-aircraft guided missile made it possible to expand the borders of the zone of damage by almost a half and to bring the ammunition of a combat vehicle to 16 missiles. Tor-M2 remains the only means of this class in the world capable of simultaneously firing four air targets at the same time with four missiles.

                          MANPADS Verba

                          To directly cover the individual tactical units from 2014, a portable anti-aircraft missile system (MANPADS) "Verba" is used. Due to the use of a new optical homing head, the zone of firing of targets with low thermal radiation and protection against pyrotechnic interference are increased. As a result, the consumption of missiles for the destruction of one target was reduced, and the efficiency of the complex was increased by a factor of 1.5-2 compared to the Igla missile system.

                          Shilka Replacement

                          To replace the "Shilka" complexes, a new anti-aircraft artillery complex with an innovative ammunition of shots is being developed. It is designed to destroy tactical unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), single rocket launchers, cruise missiles, strike elements of high-precision weapons systems, tactical aviation aircraft, fire support helicopters, as well as surface and above-ground easily armored targets. The peculiarity of the complex is its low radio visibility due to the use of passive means of reconnaissance, detection and tracking of air targets.

                            Im curious if Buk MZ finally make use of Active Radar Seeker.

                                About time. having ARH means allowance for more target to be engaged, thing which is desirable for short-medium system. Who develop the seeker ? Altair or Agat ?

                                  well the missile is stealthy, low altitude cruise, self protection devices, long range and can be carried on long range fast and loitering platforms. what else needed for sustainable round the clock strikes.

                                        The two tone camouflage fits the Flanker. The birds look amazing.
