      The original idea of the MiG-29M2 is a cheap / export version of the MiG-35, with simplified equipment

        Egypt ordered just when the name change/marketing happened. The Egyt ones are Mig 35's. Custom order, but Mig 35's.

          To date, with the currently flying MiG-35 pre-serials?

          Visually, nothing. MiG-35 is a made up designation.

            The Mig-35 that the VKS are acquiring are for the acceptance trials, even if design is completed they still need to pass them before a construction contract would be legally signed.

            Egypt's ones are in export standard so they lack components used exclusively for russian service, so let's consider them baseline export Mig-35 with another name.

              Originally, the MiG-35 should have had Zhuk-AE AESA.. the MiG-29M2 should have been a simplified version, without in-flight refueling probe, with mechanical Zhuk-M2E radar, but with identical cockpits.. but with the Zhuk-AE still not ready for deployment the differences have kinda vanished.. Egyptian birds do have IFR probes..

                The manufacturer decided name one of its product lines the Mig-35. So it is the Mig-35 now.

                  Its Syria related but it has all the models of aircraft including some kind of anti-uav gun.

                          Initially I thought it was an all aluminium M-14P radial engine. But its not.
                          Compared to the M-14P
                          Weight 200 Kg
                          Power - 400 hp (10%increase)
                          Fuel consumption - decreased by about 15 %

                          I wonder if this new engine will be considered for the Yak-152. They should promote it to the Chinese who can use it on their Yak-152 variant which is currently using that 9-cyinderl M-14P radial engine.
                          If the figures are representative it sounds like a decent engine. I'm not sure if the 400+hp market is the right one to aim a new Russian engine at though - in the Red A03 there is already a very modern and even more efficient semi-domestic replacement the M-14. A scaled-down version with 100-200hp would address the need to import MALE UAV powerplants (have we found out what engine powers the Orion-E yet?).

                          A newly-signed contract discloses key details of Russias design goals for the countrys first high-bypass gas turbine engine in the 75,000lb-thrust power class launched on 19 January to support the CRAIC CR929 widebody, Ilyushin Il-96-400 and several military projects.
                          Regarding pressure ratio, it is worth noting that the PD-35 is supposed to have a 9-stage design rather than the 10 stages on the GENx, let alone the 11-stage GE9X HPC. Per stage, the PD-35 would achieve a higher ratio than either, matching the GENx with a stage less (i.e. at lower weight) - AFAIK the GE9X high pressure compressor isn't a clean-sheet design but a derivative of the GENx counterpart (which is in turn a scale of the 10-stage GE90 compressor).

                              In Indonesia case, it had nothing to do with US sanctions. Indonesia could have loaned from Russias Banking system.
                              But they choose not to, instead they now don'T have to pay extra interest from payments loan.
                              additional problem is that we can't appropriate it for something else. Remember our Kilo deal ? It would be Russian offering export credit for it. Thing is.. people in top brass want to do something else with it (say buying Flankers) Which of course not very welcome to the creditor.
                              ----

                              This is another budgetary problem.. when you want to buy something but not really appropriate necessary funds.

                              http://www.janes.com/article/77624/s...modity-dispute

                              Russians asked for rubber crumb. The counter trade basically accounts 400 M USD as the commodity from total 1.1B USD. This basically equals to 186000 metric tonne of rubber. We can fullfill it Problem is that the budget for buying that commodity from our farmer doesn't exist or have yet to be exist. Our ministry of finance is known to be strict and have reprimanded MOD for sudden request for KFX funding.

                              Cancelling the flankers looks possible which i kinda regret as we basically will lose ample of capability that western offerings does not match (except F-35A but that years ahead) We will also stick with sub 40 dB power aperture product fighter radar except when KFX enter service (Then this may not be 40 dB) or somehow we could acquire F-15 with AESA which no less expensive than the Su-35's.

                                I agree^^
                                The Su-35S could not happen.

                                But why not do as Vietnam. They always bought them in smaller batches. Four at the time. IMO four units every two years.
                                Thanks

                                  That's what we did for Earlier flankers. but now, the banking screws up simply can't compromise and we have no real flying F-5 now.

                                      The Su-35 fighter proved its worth in Syria

                                      The Su-35 fighter proved to be excellent in Syria, the serviceability of the aircraft was always above 80%, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov said to journalists on Thursday during a visit to the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Plant named after A.Ya. Gagarin "(KnAAZ).

                                      "To date, I believe this is one of the best operational and tactical aircraft in the world, it has no equal today in the air. The responses from our pilots are the best according to the results of the Syrian conflict. This car has a very big future, "Borisov said.

                                      "Many thanks to our factory workers, they always responded to our requests, the permanent brigade was on Khmeimim, so the serviceability of the Su-35 planes in Syria was always above 80%," the deputy head of the department said.

                                          It's a Google translation. He is referring to it as a "machine", but the Russian word for "machine" (mashina) is colloquially used to refer to ordinary cars in general too, and machine translations (or car translations? ) often fail to distinguish these things. It's context sensitive, so to speak, and the translation algorithms aren't quite there yet...
