    So back to Russian Airforce news again.

    https://fightersweep.com/3684/3684/

    VKS to receive 50 more Su-35S. This is also important due to Indonesia and China is mulling(more) contracts for the Su-35S.
    So to have the production lines running at KnAAZ is very important.

    According to the source, initially, the Su-35S program was expected to pay its way after 72 aircraft had been built.
    If the contract with Indonesia is signed, a total of 134 fighters of the type will have been delivered to the customers before 2020.
    Also Interesting is the cost for a domestic contract is;

    According to the source, the new order is valued at more than RUB60 billion (USD788 million) and the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Plant (KnAAZ, a Sukhoi affiliate) will build the aircraft.
    Personally i find this to be incorrect tho..

      I think those are old news about an already signed and mostly completed contract.

        Yup, old news. Here's something a bit newer: weaponized Orion-E in 2021.

          .....

          Do You have a source for this? China negotiating on more Su-35s is popping up from time and time again, but so far I haven't seen any reliable confirmation.

          Thanks,

          He was my North, my South, my East and West,
          My working week and my Sunday rest,
          My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
          I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.

          The stars are not wanted now; put out every one:
          Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
          Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods:
          For nothing now can ever come to any good.

              You anticipated me Paralay, I also have saved the article but just in case a discussion on defence spending would resurface again.

              So, i'll keep it the same, foor future uses.
              I would just add a thing, same I have posted in comment section.

              Money for military spending in Russian case doesn't come, like in the west from citizen's and private enterprises revenues but in great part from the export of oil, gas, minerals and timber i.e. from big, centralized and state owned firms.
              They pass this money to other big, centralized and state owned firms, for acquiring high technology items at a reduced prize, while creating or maintaining workplaces in the process.
              Opposition to military spending is so almost non-existent in Russia and what is generally considered a weakness in macroeconomic terms is instead an excellent thing when it come to keeping an high level of defence spending.

                      Hmm Looks interesting. However the competition for export would be tough as the "medium" AEW market is atm quite saturated with Western and Chinese products. Mainly Western like Wedgetail and SAAB. Chinese also manages to secure some niche with the ZDK-03. Would be nice alternative anyway in case the customer cant by any means accessing western products but dont want Chinese.

                        I think any non-aligned country would be very interested in buying a Russian, moderately low cost AEW/AWACS plane, especially if they already use Russian hardware for their air defence. Think how such a plane would increase the defensive potential of countries threatened by high intensity CM attacks like Venezuela or Syria for instance.

                                  Contracted to create a super-heavy transport to replace the An-124 "Ruslan" report "Ilyushin"

                                  07.05.2019 12:00:01

                                        Then, the Ministry stated that the crews of the State flight test centre (glits), the defense Ministry has launched an intensive flying experimental vehicles to test their maneuvering characteristics, and aerodynamic stability. In addition, military pilots have already begun to experience aircraft armament of the MiG-35 class "air-air" and "air-surface".
                                        22 August 2018 on the forum "Army-2018" the KLA and the defense Ministry signed a contract for delivery of six light fighter MiG-35 until 2023. Machines will be supplied in single and double (combat training) versions of the MiG - 35S and MiG-35УБ.
                                        The President of UAC Yury Slyusar announced in an interview to "Interfax" that the delivery of these six cars will be completed in 2019, and the mass production of fighters to begin after 2020.

                                          Russian upgraded Su-25 attack aircraft to get sighting system with artificial intelligence The target acquisition system with artificial intelligence will be able to independently identify hostile targets, keep them in sight and guide missiles

                                          MOSCOW, May 8. /TASS/. Russias upgraded Su-25SM3 attack aircraft will get an onboard target acquisition and sighting system with artificial intelligence elements to allow pilots to strike designated targets actually without their participation, a source in the defense industry told TASS on Wednesday.
                                          "As part of further upgrade of attack aircraft, the latest Su-25SM3 versions will be furnished with a new sighting system. It will be fully automated and a pilot will only have to select a target on the screen and all the rest will be done by artificial intelligence," the source said.

                                          The target acquisition system with artificial intelligence will be able to independently identify hostile targets, keep them in sight and guide missiles. The new technology has been integrated into the unified troop command and control system, which allows mapping an optimal route towards the target and the trajectory of using weapons. Upgraded attack aircraft will also be able to receive data on targets from external sources through the command and control system.
                                          A source in the aircraft-building industry earlier told TASS that the upgraded Mi-28NM attack helicopter would get a similar system with artificial intelligence.
                                          Expert opinion

                                          As Editor-in-Chief of the Arsenal of the Fatherland journal Viktor Murakhovsky told TASS, the new system is capable of accomplishing a whole range of tasks. "This includes re-targeting during a flight, the issuance of new flight assignments and integration into the battlefield reconnaissance and information space," he said.
                                          The new target acquisition system really features artificial intelligence elements, the chief editor said. "When picking a target, the aircrafts onboard information and control system automatically maps the most optimal route towards this target in compliance with the selected tactics The system can also offer options for employing the weapon payload against such a target, the variants of tactical and air maneuvers with regard to this target," the expert explained.
                                          Besides, the attack aircraft equipped with this system can guide weapons using target acquisition from external sources, the expert said.
                                          "It can get target acquisition from ground-based hardware, for example, from the Strelets reconnaissance, control and communications system [part of the Ratnik soldier combat gear]," the expert concluded.
                                          The Su-25SM3 is a modernized version of the Su-25 attack aircraft. The plane is capable of destroying small-size ground installations and air targets at any time of day or night. The attack aircrafts combat efficiency has increased threefold compared to other modifications. As distinct from its predecessors, the upgraded aircraft is equipped with the Glonass satellite navigation system that offers a possibility of programming a final point on the map with an accuracy of up to 10 meters while the cockpit has a digital display with an option of projecting the ground and air situation.
