The Ministry of Defense received the last three Su-35S fighters under the 2015 contract

The Russian Ministry of Defense received the last three Su-35S multipurpose fighters, transferred under a 50-aircraft contract signed in 2015. This was reported by the press service of the military department.

According to the report, all three aircraft were accepted at the aircraft plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, after which two fighters were sent to Lipetsk to the Center for training aviation personnel and military tests of the Ministry of Defense, and one more will serve in the 23rd Tallinn Fighter Regiment, stationed in Komsomolsk-on-Amur.

The specialists of the 485th military representation of the Russian Ministry of Defense accepted three multipurpose Su-35S fighters of the "4 ++" generation. Aircraft relocated from the Komsomolsk-on-Amur plant to permanent airfields of the Russian Aerospace Forces

- said in a statement.

It is specified that the supply of these three fighters completely closes the contract for the supply of 50 Su-35S by the end of 2020.

Recall that the first contract for the supply of 48 Su-35 fighters was completed at the end of 2015, while the second contract for another 50 aircraft was signed at the same time. According to the terms of the contract, all Su-35s were supposed to enter the Russian Aerospace Forces by the end of 2020.

In August, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced that the Ministry of Defense had decided to conclude an additional contract for the supply of Su-35S multipurpose fighters to the Aerospace Forces. How many planes the Ministry of Defense plans to purchase was not announced, but the amount of the new contract was announced - 70 billion rubles. The agreement should be signed before the end of this year.

    Judging by the latest situation in the world, fighters are never superfluous, all that remains is to train enough pilots

          Well, this is still not bad, considering that one costs about 2 billion, then 35 35 will have enough money. Or maybe they will decide to order something else.

            For 70 billion, three squadrons will be scraped / built. Only deliveries of 10 per year, this is the minimum that the plant needs in order not to bend without an order. And how long will he last?
            There is such a financial condition that new Su-57s are almost assembled in the corridor, and if you look at the price at which they bargained, you are completely amazed, HOW, with such a fixed cost, it is possible to organize the production of the latest 5th generation aircraft ...? ... Apparently the same as the production of the Il-76MD90A at Aviastar: "They pretend that we are being paid, and we pretend that we are building airplanes." - this is now the slogan on Aviastar.
            It seems that in Komsomolsk the same will happen with the Su-57 ...
            I don't know if they will deliver at least one production aircraft this year, but we expect the result as with ... "Ilyusha".
            There is not enough money for military purchases, but we do not abandon our oligarchs in trouble. They are related.
            A new order, of course, is good, it means the plant will live ... but the pace of rearmament and the number of fighter aircraft leave much to be desired for a country with such size, length of borders and tasks facing the Armed Forces.

                Why are you so concerned about them?
                You probably loudly greet the construction of a bridge to Sakhalin with all the infrastructure that has begun? And it seems that this is a good thing, and they have gathered to develop the region, and there are a lot of plans ... but at the same time in our country they cannot find the most necessary things ... and for the rearmament of the Army too.
                Where are the AWACS aircraft?
                How can an air war be fought without reliable air coverage?
                At all heights?
                How to deal with massive enemy missile launches?
                Ground air defense? No.
                Or is it fighter aircraft?
                Which you need to give target designation, aim at targets, DETECT these CD at a sufficient distance, to organize the reflection of the raid ...
                Perhaps this is without AWACS aircraft?
                And without a sufficient number of fighter aircraft?
                And in order to have it, you need not only to make plans, but to allocate funds.
                With Taganrog ASZ, each contract for the modernization of the A-50 to the A-50U, for ONE aircraft, is concluded ONLY after the delivery of the previous one to the customer ...
                It seems that the decision to modernize the entire fleet is being carried out, but ... since it is impossible to pre-order components without an order, and simply because this necessary business is not put on stream, we have only (!!!) 6 (SIX ) A-50U. And this includes the head one, which was ready back in 2008!
                A mockery of all aspects of common sense in organizing the "serial production" of the Il-76MD90A, also in plain sight.
                And the same thing is repeated with the "serial construction" of the Su-57 - first, twist your hands with the price of the product, not prepare (not finance the preparation) of production facilities, areas, staff training and organization of cooperation, and then wonder why "the plane is not being built / not radar ready. "
                But there is money for the construction of a bridge to Sakhalin, and in full (after all, a childhood friend), 100 billion rubles. for the construction of the atomic icebreaker "Leader" belay (the allocation of the entire amount was signed by the LAST decree of Medvedev, on the last day before resignation) ... and this is at the still unfinished plant, where ANY ship has not yet been built in full cycle (now there is a Korean lego) ... how will a ship be built there unseen before village in terms of displacement, complexity and specificity (!), if they have not yet debugged the full cycle of construction of quite routine tankers (I am already silent about gas carriers) ... and entrust such a plant IMMEDIATELY, FROM ZERO to start building the atomic monster VI 77 tons.
                That is, there is money for such adventures and are allocated immediately, in almost the full amount, and at the same time they propose to reduce the defense capability by 10%, the number of the Armed Forces is also proposed to be reduced by 10% !!!
                ... Therefore, I am writing that a new order for the Su-35 is good, this is expected (it would be foolish to order less than a hundred of these fighters - 48 + 50), but without AWACS planes and tankers, they will not fight much. And then they just do not. Poorly developed airfield network.
                And, in the end, will serial production of the Su-57 take place?
                So that the troops, and not in the next article?

                So it's me not out of grumbling, but out of irritation with what is happening. In the current circumstances, the actions of the authorities must be more sound and verified. And not rush into adventures, scattering limited funds, and allowing failure after failure in the country's defense capability.

                  I didn't care about anyone if you didn't get it. It's just that I'm sick of whining and lamentations, I prefer someone who silently does business and thank God for people like you who don't pay attention. So your irritation matters only to you. The country was almost torn to pieces completely, it went through almost all the circles of hell. Simply because at one time it was necessary to burn out all sorts of undesirable elements with a red-hot iron. And even now it would not hurt. But in fact, we have retained our sovereignty, production base, backlog of scientific developments, we stayed afloat. We got up from our knees and continue, whenever possible, to restore previously lost industries. You just have to whine less and do more business. Gaps are in your memory, without mistakes there will be no success, mistakes and failures do not happen only for those who do nothing.

              And, alas, there is no need to count on more. While they were making the Su-30SM and Su-35 in parallel, in 2013-18, the number of heavy fighters transferred by the Armed Forces per year ranged from 24 to 39 (27 Su-30SM and 12 Su-35 in 2015), this was not enough , but at least it looks like something. Moreover, in those same years, the MiG revived a little, placing a regiment of deck 29s and a small handful of SMTs.
              But now ... there are no MiGs, the Su-30SM are no longer being produced, the Su-57 is not yet being produced, and the Su-35's contracts ... have come to an end. So the news is positive, but, of course, only in terms of maintaining production

                In fact, we have about 200 modern fighters. Of course, this is not enough for a major mess. How many are there still SU-27SM / SM3, MiG29SMT, SU30M2, but in terms of efficiency they are significantly inferior to SU30SM / 35 and are already outdated. And what is the superiority of the enemy in the air, our veterans colorfully described in their memoirs, and the Armenians recently felt fully. In short, another 200, (preferably SU-57) needed yesterday.

              "There is such a financial condition that new Su-57s are almost being assembled in the corridor" ///
              It surprised me too. I thought a separate workshop would be built for the newest aircraft
              or even a separate plant. It is customary to do so. The Italians built the F-35
              a separate plant, although, like the Su-35, produces only one a month.
              And the Su-57 is assembled between the two workshops.

                Yes, it seems that they have already prepared a normal workshop for assembly, and that "corridor" is the gap between the workshops, it was used for experimental assembly. But it seems that really there is not enough finance for a normal start of production. Let's see next year, they promise to issue 6 pieces, and then up to 12 - 15 per year. Here, and the Algerian order to the dwelling may be.

      Export orders have nothing to do with the contract concluded with the RF Ministry of Defense. The production capacity of the aircraft plant in Komsomolsk allows, if necessary, to produce a much larger number of aircraft.

                And there is no need to replace the essence of my commentary on the strongest army with the question of the strongest fighter, but there is no such thing, each has its own pros and cons.

                  But, if you are afraid to speak directly, then I will help you -
                  Su-35s loses to fighters in all respects

                    Not all.
                    At a minimum, the SU-35s is roughly equal to the F22 and superior to the F-35;
                    - in speed
                    - combat radius
                    - in the payload.
                    - in maneuverability (F-22 lags behind less).
                    This is just a shot from memory.
                    About the radar, too, you can speculate. In some ways it is better than AN / APG, in what it is "Irbis", but it is better to let people more competent in the radar insert their 5 kopecks.
                    In what Sushka loses to both of them, it is noticeable.
