Flight of Sergei Bogdan on the Su-35

Again the 100 anniversary of the Air Force, Sergey Bogdan on the Su-35 shows its capabilities.

Taxiing to executive

This year, the Su-35 will be selected for the first time at the international airshow. He will go to the Le Bourget Air Show and show his flight program there, which we have all seen and more than once.

Until 2015, the Russian Air Force will receive all X-NUMX Su-48C / BM fighters.

The combat capabilities of the F-35 in solving destructive missions were evaluated using mathematical modeling of the conditions of close air combat. As an adversary for the F-35, a commercial project of the OKB im. BY. Sukhoi - Su-35 with engines "117" NPO "Saturn".

Both aircraft have four short-range air-to-air missiles and a full-time artillery unit as weapons.

The results showed that the Su-35 as a fighter has an overwhelming superiority over its competitor. Possessing better maneuvering characteristics, it was more often than once in 2,55 – 3,39 in terms of the use of missile weapons, and in 3,54 – 5,24 times more often these attacks ended with the defeat of the target.

The probability of successful completion of a duel with Su-35 for F-35 does not exceed 0,21 – 0,28.

In total, a wave is now rising in which the desire to get Su-35, and not the praised American fifth-generation airplanes, is getting louder and louder. Of course, I would like to be happy for our aviation industry and let's hope that this is not all so easy.

And what's on the wingtips so rusty? Is it not smoke rockets?

Engine life for nothing, do not spend, roll in tow.

A merry team gathered on the ground. She intrigued us.

And what was our surprise when we realized that they meet Bogdan.

He took a photo with them and drove on.

Sergey Leonidovich Bogdan - Honored Test Pilot of the Russian Federation, Reserve Colonel, Hero of the Russian Federation (2011 year). Since 2000, he has been a test pilot and deputy chief of the flight service for Sukhoi. He experienced more than fifty different types of combat aircraft.

In 1990-1991, Bogdan was deputy squadron commander of a separate naval assault aviation regiment of the Black Sea naval aviation fleet.
Bogdan began his test test career in 1991. He studied at the Test Pilot Training Center (CPLI), and from 1993 at the State Flight Test Center of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation (GLITS, formerly Air Force Research Institute), he held consecutive positions as test pilot, deputy and commander of an aviation squadron of the Fighter Aviation Flight Test Service . In parallel, Bogdan studied and graduated from the Moscow Aviation Institute.
In the state flight test center, Bogdan has mastered the 37 types and aircraft modifications, including the Su-17, Su-25, Su-27, MiG-23, MiG-29, Su-30МКК, Su-25ТМ and MiG-29С. In addition, he made the first landing on the aircraft-carrying cruiser "Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Kuznetsov" of the Su-25UTG and Su-33 aircraft. In 2000, Bogdan was awarded the Order of Courage and in the same year was dismissed as a colonel.
With 2000 of the year, after Bogdan resigned, he continued his test-pilot career on the flight test and development base of the Sukhoi company, tested various prototype and serial models of combat aircraft of this design bureau, including Su-30МК2, Su-27КМ and experimental fighter with a swept back wing Su-47. He performed demonstration flights at aviation exhibitions in Russia (MAKS-1999 - MAKS-2005) and in France (Le Bourget 2005). In April 2006, Bogdan received the title of Honored Test Pilot of the Russian Federation.
His first prototype of the T-50, he flew 29 in January 2010, and subsequently made the first flights on other instances of this fighter.

    901 board is a cool car.
    I saw the flights of S. Bogdan personally - impressive.
    A worthy successor to Vladimir Ilyushin, the test pilot, who first sat behind the helm of the T-10, the prototype SU-27.

      T-10 is not a prototype, it is actually a su-27, when everything was secret in Komsomolsk, therefore they called them chervonets at the factory where they produced

        Bogdan is a really talented pilot, remember when the T50 exploded at the start? He was not entrusted with this car then, he was not yet a Hero. And another Hero, by his mistake, had a disaster. I asked Sergei, what if you were at the helm? “It wouldn't have happened,” he said.

          Surge is not an explosion. And then they wrote as if the t-50 had exploded. The engine just choked on air and cleared its throat. More precisely, vaf will tell.
          By the way, was there an engine replacement?

            Why with a surge change the engine? If your motor sneezed in your car, you don’t throw it in a landfill.

              Earlier, during surging the engine was removed and fully tested, especially the turbine blades were checked, since during surging they were exposed to the threat of destruction ...

    I think that given the transfer of T-50 production in the series to the 16th year, it could increase the purchase batch of Su-35 !?
    it would be great!
    I am sure that they definitely will not be superfluous. and if even ours will not continue to buy, I’m sure that they will go for export cool. given that EVERYONE is arming now, pushing their budget to the limit!

    I want to cry from such articles, I admire S. Bogdan, BUT he alone will not be enough for all the Air Force, which of the pilots flies on this miracle in combatant units? we teach our pilots to fly on technology only when it is morally obsolete !!!! 48 aircraft until 2015 is that such a mockery so sophisticated? Where do not spit solid laudatory articles, as we have everything is obvious, etc., etc. In fact, everything is fine for a while only where Putin comes, but he, like S. Bogdan, is alone, he will not be enough for everyone. Think for yourself the conclusion about what I have to do for a long time with political and banking rubbish here I will not paint, otherwise extremism is soldered =)
    ZYZH In the past he wore a black uniform with gold epaulets, from 1995 to 2000 he loved his country and its leaders 100%

    To be honest, the endless advertising of the Su-35 is already a little stale.
    Well, we finished off the 25-year-old program for the modernization of the Su-27. So what ?
    Upgraded aircraft of the 80s in the hundreds, many are already AFARs and no one says that this is a super-technique.
    It would be better if the planes put in combat units, and then the number of Su-35 in parts is equal to absolute zero.

    Yes, the cat cried a lot of new aviation technology in parts and the resource of this very technology tends to zero and in general there are a lot of problems, but ... the article is called "S. Bogdan's flight on the Su-35". Therefore, let's say this: the plane is excellent, the pilot is outstanding, the photo selection is class. And problems in our country are as natural as the sun in the sky. Where without them. I would like to forget about them at least for a while and admire a good selection of photos. Thanks to the author.wink good

    Comrades, do not tell me a layman a few fundamental differences between the aircraft of the Sukhoi family, namely what is the difference between the Su-30, the Su-35 and the Su-37?
    On the SU-37 stand engines with UHT (where they were actually installed for the first time, however: as far as I understand, they stand on the indicated aircraft in one of the modifications).
    Su-30 double which actually makes its main difference from those indicated.
    Su-35 has a different glider: there is no front horizontal tail and brake flap; braking is performed by deflecting the rudders in different directions.
    + differences in avionics.
    If the presence of su-30 and su-35 is clear to me, then su-37 is what? A purely experimental aircraft? Then why was he given the designation as anyway for serial. Enlighten me.

      Su-37 and offered for export to our Air Force. And so it seems that all planes have military designations. MFI - MiG-1.44. "Berkut" - Su-47. T-10M-11 - Su-37. Now we are waiting for the designation of the T-50. I think there will be a Su-51. Although for the continuation of the sevens it would be better to Su-57

      This is one of the reincarnations of the Su-27M program. In the 80s, work was carried out on various options for modernizing the Su-27. The "main" option was to give the Su-27 multipurpose functions of the F-15E type. It received the Su-27M index.
      However, due to the collapse of the USSR and the collapse of the economy, the program dragged on for 25 years and the aircraft was reconfigured several times with different names for advertising purposes. Su-27M, Su-35, Su-37, etc. In essence, this is one and the same aircraft. Specifically, the Su-37 is a Su-27M with UVT.

      There are two main variants of the Su-30. They are quite different from each other.

      But for nothing. This is a purely advertising feature named after Poghosyan.

          Yes, all are double.
          In general, the Su-30 is a slightly different branch of the modernization of the Su-27 than the Su-27M (Su-35,37).
          Initially, it was a two-seat interceptor fighter for air defense of the USSR with an air refueling system.
          Later, export aircraft began to function as multipurpose fighters, and two "generations" of the Su-2 appeared. Irkutsk and Komsomolskaya.
          They differ in motor, locator and a little gliders, although they look very similar.
          In a word, without half a liter you can’t figure it out smile

    In principle, a year and a half is left. Most likely production capacities do not allow it - for this they did not order more. Otherwise, the failure of the order threatens with sanctions.
