          Apparently they're expanding it for future military/civilian joint use. Which frankly sounds a bit redundant considering the recent and rather massive capacity expansion at the Simferopol international airport (the new terminal opened just a week ago or something, and it's like ten times the size of the former one):


          (The first three are the same USSR-era building, built 1957-1960, only with some minor additions and new "cosmestics" over the years, with the blue and white tile pattern being added after the events of 2014...Then they built the massive new terminal 2016-2018)

          But then again Sevastopol is administratively separated from the rest of Crimea, so a dedicated airport there might be warranted in their eyes.

          I wonder if they'll do anything to the airfield on Cape Khersones though, I like the location (and it was the default starting airfield in the Russian Su-27 videogames from the 1990s, I seem to recall)

                  One of the early Su-30SMs spent half a year back @ the factory, supposedly some modernization (maybe the so-called SM1?):







                  And one of Kurk's new SMs:

                          So this is the latest Mig-31 variant flying, right?

                          What are all those circular spots under the Cockpit, the grey area?

                            an interview with Deputy Defense Minister Borisov

                            https://tvzvezda.ru/news/forces/cont...51128-ifip.htm

                            details of Kinzal and UAV programs

                            UAV

                            We first showed unmanned vehicles, showed only two samples. For various reasons. Many people ask: why do not they fly you? Well, if they fly - they are small, no one will see them. To somehow show the public, they decided to take it to the platform. Well, in order not to have illusions or the opinion that the Armed Forces have only two types of unmanned vehicles, we have therefore shown the two latest developments - "Corsair" and "Katran". "Katran" is a helicopter type, and "Corsair" is a class closer even to the operational assignment of an unmanned vehicle, which is literally fresh, it has recently completed state tests, and we will serially purchase it.

                            In fact, the type of unmanned vehicles today is very wide in the Armed Forces. I can only list by name, you will understand that the amount is simple (huge). These are Tachyon, Aileron and the family of Orlan, there are several of them, and Forpost and Leer. And new developments are coming. We are finishing trials, this year we will assign the letters "O" to a new development - "Pseudo". This is a very serious class of drone for operational tasks, it has a useful load of 450 kilograms, it can be in the air for 30 hours. I think this is a September-October issue.

                            I think that within a year we will finish work on a heavy drone - Altius, which will allow us to carry a combat load of up to two tons. In fact, today in the armed with silt are at various stages, as a rule at the final, samples that will form the image of unmanned aircraft in the near future for virtually all functional capabilities. I mean informational, shock weapons, special countermeasures, primarily EW. With different payloads - from kilograms to two tons.

                            Kinzal:

                            This is one of four samples, which the Supreme Commander-in-Chief voiced. This is a modern weapon: a hypersonic missile of increased range, which, in fact, can overcome air defense and anti-ballistic missile defense systems. It is invulnerable and has very serious fighting power and potential.

                            And the MiG-31 is its carrier, this aircraft is most suitable to disperse this missile to the required speeds at the right altitudes. In support of the fact that this is not some kind of exotics: today, ten aircraft are on experimental combat duty and are ready for use depending on the situation.

                                    According to Air International.
                                    There will come a follow-up contract on Yak-130 and Su-30SM(in a new variant, SM2?), most likely in 2019. The SM2 contract is to be a big one.

                                    Production of Su-34 is in its last segment of its state orders, if no export comes NAPO way, a new state contract could come as early as 2019. Still no words on the Su-34 upgrade.

                                    Su-35S will continue with current state contract, 10 Su-35S will happen this year for VKS. New state contract could emerge around 2020, depending on export.
                                    Currently the last 10 PLAAF Su-35S units will be delivered this year and then the Indonesian batch will commence.

                                    There is rumors that Algeria are looking at a small contract with Su-30SM2 along with IAF(super MKI).

                                    A new big state contract on Ka-52M will happen soon.. Russia soon that is.
                                    The new Ka-52 variant has still to pass State trials. New Sensor and weapons trials.

                                    Six Su-27 will be upgraded to SM3 standard.
                                    A small units of Mig-31K(Kinzhal combo) will operate out of Southern District, but will remain attached to Rostov-On-Don 4th Air Regiment.
                                    Its still in state trials, and more Mig-31K conversion will only happen after Weapons trials are completed.

                                    The LIRP Su-57 contract of 12 still remains the same. But its production and deliveries could see further setbacks.. its still with Weapons trials.

                                      The Ministry of Defense showed the possibilities of the newer unmanned aircraft "Korsar"

                                      The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation has shown the newest drones "Corsair", intended for air reconnaissance.
                                      The video is posted on the Ministry's Facebook page .

                                      It is reported that for the first time within the framework of the Victory Parade in Red Square the newest Russian UAV of the aircraft type "Korsar" will pass.

                                      The device is designed to conduct round-the-clock all-weather aerial reconnaissance of surface and surface targets, defeat enemy targets and deliver cargo to designated areas.

                                      Its equipment allows real-time delivery of target designation to fire and impact equipment, including high-precision. The flight duration of the vehicle is up to 10 hours, the maximum height is 6 km, the range is more than 160 km.

                                        So is it decided as to what the Su-30SM2 variant will feature in terms of radar and engine? Are other avionics changes planned and any new weapons for integration?

                                        IAF's Super-30 program will most likely not involve any new builds. Upgrades for existing fleet will be included.

                                          It only mention the R-77-1 and Kh-35U on weapons.
                                          New self defense suite(Flares) and new Navigation equipment.
                                          Upgraded BARS radar.


                                          And another Ka-52 crash in Syria. Both crew killed.
