Hmmm .. so this is the long awaited Su-35MB or just once another iteration of the Flanker !

Looks very much - just from the first short look on it - like a mix of Su-27 + Su-27M features ... the twin-nose gear of the M but the shorter tails of the old one ... why not the taller tails from the M ??

Thanks for posting, Deino

Its the Su-35BM prototype (901) indeed. Radome looks different, as befits a new radar.

What about Su-35 (old one with canards) and Su-37? Tu-154?:)

Didn't remind those ones, I'm talking about the negative effect of the pitot-probe on radar operating at MPRF that have led most developers to place the pitot in other places (those problems are mostly aperture blockage related)

Check the Su-30MKI with Bars radar and you will see the pitot probe, even the MiG-35 with Zhuk-AE (AESA radar) have the pitot tube, I have seen pics of this aircraft at KnAAPO that shows the first experimental Irbis-E set so this one at least also uses the radar onboard.

Did those aircraft you mentioned have radars onboard?...interesting.

Please check also the weird radome (not common color and some sort of lines...) and the RWR aerial (new one!) on the vertical tail (don't know how to translate it)

the pitot tube appart from their obvious role of ...pitot were also vortex generators systems, that's why they stayed for so long.

;D ;D ;D

Flateric if by any chance you can speak to Sukhoi or NIIP guys, can you ask:

a) About venezuelan contracts, when the rest of the Su-30MK2 would arrive, I'm also interested to know per example if any simulation system was bought along the Flanker.
b) If there are further news of Su-35 interest by Venezuela.
c) If by any chance you can speak to NIIP guys, can you ask, what is the 4th channel in the receiver system of Irbis?, combined AZ/EL monopulse phase channel?, ECM channel?
d) What is the new RWR on Su-35?, no optical MAWS?

Thanks ;D

Starting from a tiny detail...OK, I was very tired...it took me four hours to enter the MAKS territory...in the morning Putin came as usual, and Su-35 was moved to a front ('President's') static line...while me was searching for it starting from the other end of longest runway in Europe...finally, about 6 PM I did...have some shots and appeared that plane was prepared from towing. Where, was a question...remembering quiet disappearing of Su-33KUB in 2003 after first day of the show, Flateric was crying...but it went to the common static line...where were others shots made - and in time, because two giant ladders appeared and curtained Su-35 from the side s. Canopy and intakes left covered all the time.

I'm very sceptic about this...not for public view so far as I noticed

P.S. Great blatant commercialism (c) - Sukhoi technical stuff allowed access to -30СKM cockpit for 100 roubles (USD 4). Me choose another liter of icetea. Was I wrong? Not sure...

Good work Grigory.

Look at the RAM in the intakes...nice. Nice gimbals of the Irbis...did you see it in move?, how fast can it rotate?

What "RAM in the intakes" are you referring to? The only photos in which you can see the intake without that canvas cover have FOD covers on them (that black material around the edges is part of the cover. ???

Just a - maybe stupid - question !!

If the ex-BM = now "new" Su-35 is proposed as a big update or modernisation for the standard Airforce version ... is there anything similar proposed for the Su-27K/Su-33 naval birds ? ???

Cheers, Deino

There are no stupid questions, only stupid answers... ;) ;D

The new Mig-29K(UB) is designed especially for the Indian Navy.

So if China orders the Su-27K or Su-27KUB for its Navy, the Su-27K/KUB will be modernised.
I presume, the a new Su-27K would have the same systems as the Su-27/J-11/Su-27MKK(2).

Hmmm ... I agree with You that Russia surely tries to find an export customer, but when the carrier-based version will be taken by China I think it more likely will be built around its own J-11B avaionics !

Anyway ... what's that other large store with the round shaped nose besides the Su-35 ????

Deino ???
