A batch of new serial fighters Su-57 and Su-35S entered service with the troops

The Russian Aerospace Forces have been replenished with new fourth- and fifth-generation aircraft; the delivery of Su-35S and Su-57 fighters took place in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. This was reported by the press service of the United Aircraft Corporation.

The transfer of new aircraft to the military took place at the airfield of the Gagarin aircraft plant, which produces these fighter models. It is not reported how many aircraft the Aerospace Forces received, but it is emphasized that the delivery of fifth-generation Su-57 fighters this year is not the last; the company is preparing to deliver another batch of aircraft before the end of the year.



The Russian Aerospace Forces received a batch of Su-57s as part of the plan for fulfilling the state defense order for the current year. The remaining fifth-generation combat vehicles, scheduled for delivery this year, are in the final assembly shop and are also being tested at the flight test station

- said the head of the UAC, Yuri Slyusar.

It is also noted that the third batch of Su-35S fighters has been delivered to the military this year, and it is also not the last. The next batch of aircraft is at a high level of readiness, but it is not yet known when it will be handed over to the military. Let's hope this year.

As stated by the Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov, Russian aircraft factories have picked up a high production rate, providing the Aerospace Forces with new aircraft as part of the state defense order.

Note that the Su-35S is the main fighter aircraft aviation in the special operation zone along with the Su-30SM. The Su-57 also takes part in air defense, but this is not much advertised; the use of this fighter in a special operation is confirmed, but without details.

    This is good news! In conditions of war and sanctions, our military industry began to work at full capacity.

      Moreover, this is a state industry. Try to get a private trader to get promoted, he will demand guaranteed orders for many years.

        I would also note the point that despite the West’s desire to increase the production of weapons, this is not really happening. The reason is in the very model of their defense industry - it is private and completely based on profit. In the current conditions, the work of their enterprises is unprofitable. They need long-term contracts and people who will implement them. At the moment, only Poland is moving in this direction, everyone else is just talking...

          But our defense industry operates without profit, right? There was a series of articles about how military-industrial complex enterprises that were ineffective went bankrupt, despite the fact that they were the only ones of their kind. And how many soldiers did not receive the products of enterprises operating at full capacity?

          If they really needed weapons in large quantities, they would simply order their production in China and other Southeast Asia. But they don't need this.

        Lure a private owner with profit and he will get promoted just as well. I have an example before my eyes, machines are purchased in the hundreds (really hundreds), the salary of engineers has doubled since the beginning of the SVO, and in some places for highly qualified workers it has tripled.
        Resp. The margins there are crazy. Moreover, even before the Northern Military District, around the time of the operation in Syria, defense orders (and not directly, but through “layers”) became more attractive than the oil industry.

        It makes no difference whether private enterprises or state enterprises. They saw, roll away, arrange sinecures for relatives and dead souls are about the same everywhere. The main thing is motivation.

        At the moment, it’s easier to motivate a private owner, stupidly with rubles, he will do the rest himself.
        A state-owned enterprise (a classic "defense plant", SKB, etc.) is sometimes easier to demolish to the ground and build a new one than to restore at least some order to the existing one.

        There is no government yet. ideology, the heads of state corporations do not understand why they should tear themselves apart at work. For salary? Salary is clearly not the main thing there. Dismissal? But who will fire him, he’s a “monument”? (relative, acquaintance, etc.). Middle and especially lower-level managers, as a rule, are squeezed into a very strict framework of “they’ve always done it this way,” “Ivan Ivan strongly recommended doing it this way and not doing it differently,” “they’ve never done it that way,” and there’s no way to jump out of the rut. They can with all their desire, but only if they are “over the fence.”

          Why is this possible and still continues? With the liberal economic system of the state extremely inflamed by the head of state himself. That is, built on the proprietary foundations of the worldview. One could even say that in this regard he “took up the banner” of all Gaidarites.

          And in your own words, you also seem to justify this system a little.

        For example, the Lancets are made by a private company, more than 50% of the company belongs to its general designer.

        Are you serious? The entire defense industry is 99% joint-stock companies, and who owns the shares is shrouded in mystery.

    Well, God forbid! I would really like to see aircraft production restored. And so that it would be planned and rhythmic, without storming. To ensure that flight and engineering personnel are trained in sufficient quantities and with high quality. In addition, so that the production of support equipment does not lag behind, and this is a huge list of technology and equipment, without which it is simply impossible to effectively use airplanes and helicopters.

    If only the MiG 35 could be revived, a light front-line fighter for the Aerospace Forces would not be out of place.

      News from May 23, 2022.
      To summarize, it is worth saying that the MiG-35 has “grown” from the class of light fighters. Having a maximum take-off weight of 24500 kg, a combat load of 6500 kg, and a combat radius of 1000 km, having at its disposal a wide range of weapons and radar with AFAR, the MiG-35 can already be considered in the same class with such fighters as "Rafal", " Eurofighter Typhoon" and F-18.The operational characteristics of the MiG-35 have greatly increased compared to the MiG-29. The cost of service fell by 2,5 times. The airframe has received an improved coating, which slows down corrosion.


      Since the presentation of the updated MiG-35 in 2017, many countries have become interested in the new Russian fighter. But the main thing is that The MiG-35 has been adopted by the Russian Aerospace Forces. 6 aircraft have already been delivered to the troops. A contract for the supply of 30 MiG-35s to the Russian Aerospace Forces is currently being implemented. In the future, a new larger order is quite possible.

    How are new aircraft protected from enemy air defense?
    Is there protection against MANPADS in the form of the Vitebsk system?

          Well, in fact, for a long time now all official news have not indicated the size of the delivered batches for anything.

          And I would venture to guess about the Su-35, which were always delivered in small batches, if we are talking about the third batch of the year and not the last, then there are at most 3 of them in this batch.

    Maybe they finally forced him to work, this Manturov?

    But it would be better if he shared about the native engine for the SU-57. Nowadays, the Su-57 is equipped with AL-41F1 intermediate engines.

    Otherwise, they’ve been silent about work on it for a suspiciously long time. More precisely, the head of the United Aircraft Corporation, Yuri Slyusar, said at the Army-2023 forum that the fighter’s standard engines (second stage engines) still require refinement and continued testing.

    Good news. I would like the plane to actually be invisible, as befits a fifth-generation aircraft. Then we can expect an increase in the number of attacks on enemy rail transport.

    It is not reported how many aircraft the VKS received in total

    That's all the news.

    For reference, the United States alone has about 600 (SIX HUNDRED) F-35s. Not counting the rest of NATO.

    Brilliant strategists, wise commanders, great winners. It’s impossible to list all the advantages. But the army comes to them with a naked woman... From the transmission of each plane they make news...

      The news is that mass production has begun and there are orders and they are being built. This is the news that people are waiting for, not about something new that has no analogues, but about mass production and delivery to the army. Or not to build? If you are dissatisfied with the pace - open a new production and produce more.....

    The Wings of the Motherland are replenished! This is good, especially considering the possible transfer of the F16 to the Ukrainian Armed Forces! There will be something to meet the enemy in the sky!
