    Yeah, to tell the truth, i am a little surprised that they kept the third seat in cockpit, it must be completely redundant by now.. however it sure keeps a nice seat view for the rest of the crew. Think it a total of four now. Was five or six before.
    I am not sure for the Il-76MD-90A, but keeping the 3 men cockpit was a request of the Russian MoD in the Il-112V. It is handy when operating from basic airfields without much assistance.

      The VIAM article is a good find, Austin. The scalable core that they built with Aviadvigatel is probably the most important project in the Russian aviation industry right now as it opens up so many present and future opportunities. It will be interesting to see how they evolve it. Initial info in the contract docs for PD-35 looks quite promising, but he didn't touch on CMCs in the interview and focused more on the metallurgy going into their designs. I see he mentioned an overall pressure ratio of 61 (as a long term goal), however. No doubt influenced by GE9X.

        Interesting- plans to replace all 18 MiG-29s operating in Armenia with Su-30SM, over 2020-2021. I guess that is where the additional batch (or at least part of it) that will be ordered from Irkut after the current contract soon runs out will go.
        Also makes sense in light of Armenia finally getting its own Su-30SMs soon, they can train with VKS and bum off their spares and support.

        I wonder what will happen to those MiGs, they were some of the newer, relatively, air-frames produced and underwent overhaul a few years back.
        Also curious where the new MiG-35s that VKS is ordering will now go. One of them had its first flight recently:

          Some say the MiG-35 will just go to Kubinka with the 237 TsPAT while VKS has no real interest on the aeroplane and is substituting the MiG-29s with the Su-30SM instead of MiG-35. Statements from officials have been that the MiG-35 is the future of the VKS though, we have so wait and see. Personally I think the export success of the plane needs a more serious installed base in the VKS than 6 planes with the Swifts.

          EDIT:
          Some claims here that this is not a serial unit but one of the two pre-production ones contracted in 2017

            and talking about MiG really reminds me of Phazotron... when they will finally finish the Zhuk AE/FGA-35 ?

            The NIIP's N036 already entering Ryazan's serial production facility. Thus in much better shape in terms of maturity, but by no means this radar will have MiG offspring. unlike Osa or Bars-29.

                Admin at Russia defense net can accept anymore users. I am guessing he needs to set up more servers to provide better efficient load balancing to handle more requests before I can even start an account over there(I hope he resolves the issue later). Either way I am throwing some info.

                http://tass.com/defense/1054964 "Sudans new authorities may show interest in hosting a Russian naval base, Head of the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies Center of the Near and Middle East Vladimir Fitin told TASS on Monday.

                He pointed out that "former President Omar al-Bashirs government offered to host a Russian naval base, so there are numerous opportunities to boost ties and cooperation."

                https://www.rt.com/news/457124-tartu...-syria-russia/

                "
                Russian businesses gaining access to Tartus will not just boost trade between the two countries but will primarily enable Syria's economy to recover, Borisov emphasized. The sides will put their signatures under the deal within the next seven days, the deputy PM promised."

                http://tass.com/defense/1055188
                "The Project 09852 special-purpose nuclear-powered submarine Belgorod that will be the first carrier of Poseidon strategic underwater drones was floated out at the Sevmash Shipyard in north Russia on Tuesday, TASS reports from the scene."


                Also a random question I have heard the Yasen-M has like 10 VLS which can carry 40 oniks. Oniks in length is 8.9 meters while the tested mach 9 plasma covered manuvering scramjet zircon missile are estimated 8-10 meters. Does anyone have any size references as to what the diameter of the Zircon missile would be? I am assuming the Yasen-M could start lobbing 40 zircons if they want. There are like 8 torpedo tubes for the Yasen-M so I am assuming 8 futlyar torpedos can be launched is this correct?

                  There is a RuN thread on naval aviation and a general discussion subforum. Would discuss such issues but excuse that I don't do it just here.

                      The Il-112V "lose weight" with a stock

                      Published 20.04.2019 | @AviaRu |2 847

                      During the first study in the zero years of documentation on passenger aircraft Il-112 Ilyushin design Bureau found that the projected military transport vehicle will be a few peretyazhelena. But, as in 2010, the topic is closed, in this state, documentation lay before resuming in 2014. About it in interview to the edition Aviation Explorer told the Chief designer of AK them. Ilyushin Nikolay Talikov.
                      By 2014, KB was reorganised, and there was also a change of generations. The new management at the expense of quality sought quickly release design documentation. The task of weighing the design has gone by the wayside. In the end, the documentation and found the errors and omissions, and excess weight was 2.5 tons.
                      After serious complaints against the Ministry of defence, the Bureau developed specific activities which are currently implemented in serial production. Was released a schedule approved by the KLA in June 2018. Was issued an internal order for all developers, reducing the weight of the aircraft will be paid a premium. EDO has appealed to all partners-developers, urging them to make every effort to reduce the mass purchase of components.
                      By the beginning of may 2019 could reduce the weight of the aircraft at 2082 kg 500 kg will be removed in the course of works on modernization of aircraft and equipment, the transition to electric remote control system, optimization of the hydraulic system. This set of measures will allow to reduce weight of the aircraft at 2472 kg. All the updates will be implemented on the following machine (0103), the shape of which will comply fully with all subsequent production machines.
                      In addition to airframe several peretyagina and turned the engine TV7-117СТ. The developer - JSC "ODK-Klimov" have to reduce the weight of the motor is 90 kg, the corresponding work is carried out. Until the end of the test plane engine weight will be reduced.
                      All-Russian scientific research Institute of aviation materials (VIAM) is also involved in work to reduce the weight of the aircraft from the point of view of application of new materials. To date, the Il-112V is used quite a lot of composites, mainly in secondary structures, which does not affect the power circuit. The transition plan from duralumin alloys aluminum-lithium, which will reduce the weight of the plane is approximately 150 kg.

                            In this case it would need to buy them second-hand as all the new airframes produced by russians would be called MiG-35 anyway...

                                In a case of Mexico something like a Light Attack / Fighter Version of the Yak-130 or M-346 (for example) would be a far better option.

                                  For once i agree with Scoot here.
                                  However, Mexico could end up with some Yak-130 too.

                                  What kind of trainers do Mexico have now?

                                        I read the first line of that Pentagon sponsored PowerPoint, where it pointed out Russian Domestic military budget and Russian Military export limitations.

                                        At that point i stopped reading any further. Why?
                                        Cause if you bother to do your own research on the web, you will find that Russian Defence budget has risen by a yearly level, as only to decrease in 2018/19.
                                        And as for Russian Military Export, well bombshell incoming!;
                                        Its at an all time high.


                                        So what have you been saying all along Scooter?

                                          At that point i stopped reading any further. Why?
                                          Cause if you bother to do your own research on the web, you will find that Russian Defence budget has risen by a yearly level, as only to decrease in 2018/19.
                                          And as for Russian Military Export, well bombshell incoming!;
                                          Its at an all time high.


                                          So what have you been saying all along Scooter?
                                          Sorry, try again as the Russian Defense Budget is "declining". They just can't afford the massive funding to even keep the existing equipment going. Let alone develop new equipment and replace it....

                                          Yet, you care to debate program by program. I am game..........What you want to start with Warships (Aircraft Carriers, Destroyers, Cruisers) or maybe Armor or Fighters and Bombers???

                                          The 1.44 trillion ruble allocation actually represents a significant drop in expected annual procurement the government initially planned to spend twice that amount as part of a 2011-2020 modernization drive.

                                          Faced with plummeting oil prices, though, Russia had little choice but to slash its defense budget starting in 2017, when it cut expenditures for the ministry by 5%.

                                          The lack of funds has forced Russia's military planners to make some hard decisions on where to allocate the Defense Ministry's precious rubles as part of coordinated efforts to modernize the country's large number of outdated, Soviet-era weapons systems.

                                          Russia has fallen out of the top five defense spending countries for the first time since 2006 after its spending decreased by 3.5 percent from 2017 to 2018, according to a new report published by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).

                                          Russia has expanded its military presence abroad in recent years, with its 2014 annexation of Crimea and involvement in the Syrian conflict serving as examples. However, the economic impacts of Western sanctions and low oil prices have negatively affected the state budget.

                                          Russia now ranks sixth in the world for defense spending, with $61.4 billion in expenditures in 2018 compared to $66.3 billion the year before. The Swedish think tank said that the decrease was part of a longer trend in defense expenditure decrease in the country.
