    What was the reason for such violent flameout? An object on a runway which might have ruptured the port main gear leg and perforated the wing fuel tank? Or a massive inner port engine failure? Can't see it clearly..

      Why? The Malaysians coughed up for a system with only a small fighter batch. It can't be that bad per unit with a sizable RuAF order and domestic components.

      Plus, you have to balance cost of the units + integration vs the cost of the purchase as a whole. These are expensive (even @ the rates RuAF pays, which are pretty excellent) large birds that can serve 30+ years.
      Skimping on really (IMO) important defensive components that exist is a poor return on the rest of the purchase you have made. I'd understand if it was just the initial batch of 30 planes, or even the follow up, but at this point we are looking at 60 AF birds + another order for 60-75, and a Navy requirement of up to 50 air-frames. The time/money needed to integrate a defensive suit on par with Su-35 is a no brainer trade-off in my eyes.

        A really good photo-report of production @ Aviastar-SP, Russia's biggest aviation plant. Aviastar now produces the Il-76MD-90 family and derivatives, Tu-204, repairs An-124s, and also are part of the SSJ and MS-21 production chains.
        The plant employs around 10,000 people.

              Watching the newly released video footage, it looks like the Su-34 has a new sensor fitted at the root of the nose pitot.

              Only seen on Bort Red 03 at the moment - anyone know what it is ?? RWR ???

              Screen capture from the video......

                That is just metal for the pitot attachment exposed due to air chipping away the paint...

                        It looks like optical sensor. Maybe new MAWS or LWR.

                          Looks like a sacrificial surface for protection from the shearing action of airflow at the base of the pilot.

                            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.

                                  A MIG-31 crashed unfortunately, but the crew is fine.
