    The maximum take-off weight is 20 tons, the engine is probably from the Su-35S without the afterburner. Weapons ~5000 kg

      In this report it is mentioned that the MiG-31BM meant for carrying Kinzhal missiles had their radars removed and has extra fuel tanks for more range?


      Is this correct? Where would they get the space to install extra fuel tanks in the airframe without removing something first.

          American Raptors based in the United Arab Emirates have flown a number of sorties into Syrian airspace, both as a show of force in response to the Russian military presence in the country and to strike targets of Islamist insurgent groups. Prominent figures in the U.S. Air Force leadership have noted that deploying the F-22 for combat operations to the country, where Russia has deployed extensive surveillance equipment including some of its most advanced air defence radar systems capable, has seriously undermined the platform’s viability by providing Moscow with valuable intelligence on the aircraft. U.S. Air Force Lt. General VeraLinn Jamieson stated to this effect: "The skies over Iraq and specifically Syria have really just been a treasure trove for them to see how we operate. Our adversaries are watching us, they're learning from us... Russia has gained invaluable insights and information with operating in a contested airspace alongside of us in Syria." The secrecy of the elite fifth generation fighter’s manoeuvres, radar evading systems and weapons deployment were lost - a major blow to the effectiveness of the air superiority fighter. Russia was able to test the limits of the Raptor’s stealth, learn how the platform was designed to operate and better develop countermeasures against the F-22. It could potentially even use this information to incorporate successful aspects of the design onto its own next generation fighter.

          Considering the magnitude of the loss which resulted from deploying the F-22 for combat operations to Syria, and the ‘treasure trove of information’ provided to America’s adversaries, deployment of the F-35 for combat operations to the very same warzone just months later remains highly unlikely. Radar systems from Russian S-300V and S-400 air defence systems are able to cover all of Israeli and Lebanese airspace and the vast majority of Syria itself. Flying the F-35 on combat missions over this area would inevitably provide Russia with valuable information regarding the fighter’s capabilities. Iranian air defence systems are also reportedly active in the region, and the chance to test anti stealth measures against the F-35 could well prove a major asset for Tehran - arguably outweighing the losses incurred from Israeli airstrikes.

            So according to him, you develop stealth planes, spending a lot of money and time and after it you cannot use it for fear of giving up secrets?

            Certainly using it in fight with ISIS is somewhat questionable, but a scenario in which modern russian planes and SAM are present it's just another situation.

            F-22 is around there from 2005, it was about time to use it operatively.

              Just a very poor article, why did you post that Austin?

              The contributor didnt even understand what the quote from the Air Force General was talking about.

                And the article is quite the old news..
                I agree, regardless if any Intel had been sniffed out by Russia, or not. Syria is Putin little play garden, both in political and military aspect. It would seems more as a weakness upon USA if they did not operate all their best assets over Syria.
                Everything that can be arbitrayed as a tool of intimitating Russia is an exellent idea.

                  @ Heli-Russia 2018, the first mockup of the VTR-500 was revealed, the new co-ax light helo:

                    So with recent revelation of the Kh-59MK2. or what's look like it from Su-57. Do you guys think the missile would be more in widespread use in VVS's ?

                    I see alot of potentials, like say Tu-22M3 upgrade and other aircrafts.

                      Some details on Nuclear Powered Cruise missile and Avantgrad

                      https://riafan.ru/1059313-eto-ikh-i-...siiskikh-raket

                      The member of the Federation Council, Frants Klintsevich , resolutely told the Federal News Agency , who for many years gave first to the Soviet and then to the Russian armed forces.

                      "These tests have been going on since 2010, and are very successful, including over a large water area, and the Americans know about it," the Russian senator continued. - So the Americans here are just cunning. Ten years ago, these tests were already going on and were recognized as successful. As for today, I remind you that the newest Russian cruise missiles with a nuclear power plant will soon be on alert duty.

                      This means that all tests have been carried out, and the final elements are being finalized, which, naturally, are not disclosed. The fact that these missiles will be on the alert in the near future, said the Russian president, so that there can be no question of any "unsuccessful" tests. "

                      But the information that the US media reported on the Russian supersonic missile with a nuclear warhead, Franz Klintsevich, as a whole, confirmed.

                      "As for the missile with hypersound, which flies with maneuvering in the final section practically in the plasma, it is clear that it is impossible to make an aim shot on it, I tell you as an artilleryman," Klintsevich stressed. "Theoretically, a guided missile could only catch up with such a hypersonic missile, which can correct the course. But the Americans do not have such a rocket, and I do not think it will appear in the next 15 years. "

                          Nice to see to 902 still up nd running.
                          Even better to see it fly with a Sniper Pod!

                          personally i thought the 902 was mothballed, due to structure tear nd wear back when it was testing for Su-35S.
                          It was always on static display at MAKS etc

                                  That pod is designated as "T-220" The first export user is Egypt.

                                    Thanks paralay.

                                    There are several reports of a supersonic UAV being developed and I wonder are they talking about Okhotnik-B or some other UAV?

                                    Would the aerodynamic layout and engine power even allow for supersonic speed of Okhotnik-B?

                                        I asked because of this article:

                                        And yet, says deputy head of the research department of the Air Force Research Institute Alexander Nemov, being developed unmanned long-range complex which is capable of performing automatic low-altitude flight at supersonic speeds and hit both stationary and mobile targets in-depth strategy. Such machines are not yet in any army in the world.

                                        I assumed they were talking about Okhotnik-B, but I guess there is some other unmanned strike project in the works. I didn't take that article seriously (hypersonic weapon, laser) but that changed on March 1

                                        Oh, and what does abbreviation NIR in that picture mean?
