Read something on spacebattles




I was under impression the Egyptian Su-35 story was a fake. Or Is this the case of Tom Cooper doing his usually thing ?

WTF. That Rafale vs Su-35 story was proven to be fake yet Tom are willing to swallow and regurgitate that story again now with his own spin on the matter.

The hell happen with the guy nowadays ?

I know the guy always had a bad rap. Especially his work on Iran-Iraq conflict which he got called out for making bluntly shit up or taking any rumor and passing it of as fact. Along with his tall claims being in certain places and doing certain stuff he never actually done.

Guy is a farce and has been for years. He literally tried to argue the VKS had no reco capability in Syria because they did not bring Su-24MPR. I'll let you think about that brilliant piece of logic for a second.

Also when Tula presented a target sheet for Pantsir operations in Syria (including balloons shot down) he tried to argue that they must have shot down their own Russian aerostat....since apparently he wasn't aware Syrian rebels routinely used balloons to loft bombs over.

Yet there are still "observer" quoting that story, creating a circular reference.

Anyway.. will Kh-69 be integrated with Su-30 family ?

There are "sanctions", and sanctions. Turkey is under "sanctions" for the time being, they could get considerably worse if it were to make such a move. Currently, only a select few Turkish agencies and individuals are on the list, which can (and have been, AFAIK) easily circumvented. This status can be considered a largely symbolic gesture, a carefully calibrated slap on the wrist which allows sufficiently important deals to go ahead regardless.

Definitely - you could be forgiven for wondering if CAATSA isn't a market research device for Boeing, first Indonesia and now Egypt. See who's ordering Su-35s, threaten sanctions & offer F-15s as a replacement :D I guess the implicit endorsement that the Su-35, given the choice, would apparently be the preferred option, is cold comfort for Sukhoi.

Looks to be an su-35 slinging three r-77-1 missiles at around sixty kilometers. Note the PESA on swash plate capability as the fighter is able to turn far away from the target while still presumably sending early guidance correction to the missiles.
