SU-30CM ...

40
Here I like the Su-27, as well as all its subsequent modifications.
This is an amazingly beautiful car, and the most important thing is that for all the time that I see them, I am still not indifferent to them ...

And so today we will talk about - Su-30CM, which I managed to shoot as part of the "MAKS-2013".

Su-30CM - (serial upgraded) Su-30МКИ (modernized, commercial, Indian), designed for the Russian Air Force.
The first flight of this machine took place in the fall of 2012 ...



Su-30KI, as a basic platform for a multipurpose heavy fighter, is interesting primarily for its versatility. The so-called "open airborne architecture" was successfully implemented on it, which makes it relatively easy to incorporate new systems into the electronic equipment and use new guided weapons from it (including from different manufacturers). It took him to put together the Russian radar and the optical-location station, the French navigation system and the display system on the windshield, the Israeli radio-electronic warfare and sighting systems, as well as Indian-made computing systems ...
2.



The export machines of the “thirtieth” family, which grew out of the “Chinese” line, were built according to the logic of the “bypass channel”, when the new systems were mounted on board in parallel, without full integration into a single complex. Most likely, it is the ease with which the Su-30MKI platform can be used to use various weapons and equipment, and attracts the military. The attractiveness of the capabilities of a multi-purpose aircraft, which is quite easily transformed into both a shock fighter-bomber and a heavy interceptor of air defense, is confirmed by at least the composition of those who are interested in its “internal” analogue Su-30CM ...
3.



The choice of Su-30MKI has one more, very simple explanation. This aircraft in Irkutsk has been rhythmically produced for more than ten years (and the first Su-30K for the same India were released by Irkut as early as 1997), it is completely mastered in production, the technology at the plant is "licked". And this is transformed into release dates, product quality and - not least for the current leadership of the Ministry of Defense - its cost. It’s one thing when 30 machines are ordered from you, and for that you need to rally the plant in place, debug (or even re-develop) the technological process, purchase equipment and equipment, and also collect personnel. (There are such plants in Russia, and it is still not very clear what to do with them: it is expensive to start up in non-rhythmic work in small lots, but it’s a pity to throw out). Another thing is when an enterprise stamps up to standard cars for years, and It is relatively easy to embed an issue of a "corrected" modification for your Air Force into this export stream. The unit costs of producing such a "side" series are plummeting ...
4.



The first contract for 30 Su-30SM fighters was signed in March 2012. Earlier, the Ministry of Defense was going to buy 40 such aircraft, of which 28 were supposed to be transferred to the Air Force. Another 12 were proposed to transfer aviation Black Sea fleet to replace obsolete Su-24 bombers.
The first two fighters "Irkut" put the Russian Air Force 22 November ...
5.



Su-30M with their unique fighting qualities today allow you to create compact aviation groups that are equally well adapted to fight the air, land and sea enemy ...
6.



As part of the MAKS-2013 air show, the pilots of the aerobatics aviation group “Russian Vityazi” carried out familiarization flights on Su-30CM. During these flights, complex aerobatics were performed to familiarize with the unique super-maneuverable capabilities of a fighter. The pilots gave a high assessment to the aircraft performance ...
7.



Put Su-30SM on the wing of the Hero of Russia test pilot class I Vyacheslav Y. Averyanov.
Vyacheslav Yuryevich has always experienced "drying" - from the old Su-17 to the newest Su-35. His authority among fellow profession has always been unquestioned!
It surprisingly combines the ease of piloting and the most accurate calculation of any, even the simplest flight ...
8.



This year at the air show he performed a wonderful and beautiful aerobatics with his son, Eugene ...
9.



Perspective aircraft of the Russian Air Force, such as the Su-35C and T-50, have exclusively single-seat cockpits. The task of the primary training of pilots for them allows to solve the newest Yak-130. However, pilot training goes far beyond flight training and weapons. When it comes to the transfer of combat experience, the development of air combat tactics with the actual use of the entire arsenal of weapons, two-seater combat vehicles may be indispensable ...
10.



The Su-30CM, as well as the Su-35C and T-50, are super-maneuverable fighters with controlled vector thrusters, which are currently not in service with the Russian Armed Forces. It is obvious that the double Su-30CM will allow in a shorter time to prepare a sufficient number of pilots for the Air Force, able to control the machines of the next generation ...
11.



19 December 2012 of the Russian Ministry of Defense and the Irkut Corporation signed another contract for the supply of the second batch of 30 vehicles to the Air Force combat units ...
12.



As of today, combat units of the Russian Air Force have already received 5 vehicles under the signed contracts ...
13.



The main flight specifications of the Su-30CM:
crew - 2 person;
length - 21,9 m;
height - 6,36 m;
maximum takeoff weight - 34500 kg;
Max. speed - 2125 km / h;

    The Su-30SM, like the Su-35S and T-50, are super-maneuverable fighter aircraft with a controlled thrust vector, which today are not in the combat personnel of the Russian Armed Forces.

    But then he writes about already delivered cars and contracts for 10 cars.

    I’m not a professional, but in my opinion, if he spreads his hind wings to reduce his visibility, like the Pak fa (t-50), then the latter could not get wet. And if these wings were with a variable angle during the flight, it would have been a 5+ generation, plus cheap, and we would have been ahead of other 5th generation planes by a lot. Plus, if it is used to modify other stealth technologies that we moisturize in pack fa, incl. and a new engine, it can turn out quickly, cheaply and angrily !!! Something like this.

      And do not forget - it is imperative, of course, that you need machine guns to protrude from the fuselage (such a thing to which the wings cling to), then the 6 generation will be generally very cheap. Bomb know how much fellow , and from the bullets as he gave it, everyone gets in.

      This is to stabilize the flight when flying at low altitudes, otherwise the wing load is small and the plane shakes, and the Su-35 is not designed for flights at low altitudes and it does not need it. This is my unprofessional opinion.

      In open sources, you can find information that PGO increases EPR, and therefore is not desirable for stealth 5th generation aircraft (they aren’t on them, if you do not take into account old projects and the Chinese).
      I don't know about the Su-30SM, but the Su-35S is in theory a direct replacement for the Su-27SM, like the PAK FA (if we compare the tasks). "Thirty" is likely to be considered as IB. If the Su-24 is being replaced by outdated ones.
      The first contract for 30 fighter Su-30CM was signed in March 2012. Earlier, the Ministry of Defense was going to buy 40 such aircraft, of which 28 was supposed to be transferred to the Air Force. It was also proposed to transfer 12 to the Black Sea Fleet aviation to replace the outdated Su-24 bomber.

      It is a little closer to the Su-34. Perhaps in this case they decided to give up stealth in favor of slightly better combat maneuverability, to compensate for the weight, given that the car is two-seater, and, probably, more often than single-seater "brothers" will fly not only with light RVV under the wings.

        PGO increases both the EPR and resistance, which is clearly seen at the low maximum speed. It seems that there is no PGO on the T-50, but there is a deflected part at the wing influx.

          About the speed of my doubts. I compared the speed of the Su-30 with the PGO and the speed of the Su-27UB, the engines seem to be the same. Both are double. And the speed is almost the same. So it’s not about PGO? So, just for everyone, I went to the wiki (after all, you can usually check the sources there), here's what I found (article "Duck (aerodynamic diagram):
          Airplanes built according to the “duck” aerodynamic scheme have a serious drawback called the “tendency to peck”. “Peck” is observed at large angles of attack close to critical ... This reduces the lift on the PGO, which is accompanied by spontaneous lowering of the nose of the aircraft - “peck” - which is especially dangerous on takeoff and landing ...

          The movable horizontal tail located in front contributes to an increase in the effective dispersion area (EPR) of the aircraft

          Also, pilots, accustomed to flying on airplanes with a classic aerodynamic design, while flying on a "duck" complain about the restriction of the view created by the PGO.

          That is, control at supercritical angles of attack is complicated (most likely, it is decided by the developed mechanization of the wing + engine air heater);
          EPR-completely eliminate will not work (correct, if that);
          The review is limited, besides, a question.
          About speed, nothing.
          Moreover, the notorious Valkyrie project, an American strategic bomber whose main trump card was to be speed, was carried out according to the PGO scheme.
          Plus, the IFI, the fifth generation fighter with a very high declared speed, also has PGO. And here it is, the most interesting moment is the Tu-144. Why is maneuverability for him? Passenger after all. Also PGO.
          I think that all the same, the speed of PGO does not reduce, at least by some noticeable amount, for sure.

    Great report, thanks to the author. That's just the question I had. The machine is really elegant and really pleasing to the eye. That's just practicality confused me. In the photographs, I looked only at 4 (2 per wing) suspension points, and in the description as much as 12. How many points on the wing and how many on the fuselage? Possibility of suspending additional fuel tanks?

      Missile and bomber weapons are placed on aircraft launchers (APU), aircraft ejection devices (ACU) and beam holders (DB), suspended at 12 points: 6 - under the wing consoles, 2 - under the wing tips, 2 - under the engine nacelles and 2 - under the center section between the nacelles (tandem).

      It’s not ASPs that are installed on the suspension points, but posuti pylons, which are quite complex APU cars, and bombs or missiles are hung on them. Only four APUs are installed in the photo. The Su-30 suspension scheme is similar to the Su-33. On the entire T-10 family hanging tanks (which increase resistance and EPR) are not provided, the design is genius in that there is enough internal volume to accommodate the TB, plus a refueling device in the air.

    "Rear fenders" are actually stabilizers, which, in addition to longitudinal stability, serve as elevators, and together with flaperons, they carry out roll control. Suspended fuel tanks are not provided, the flight range is already 3000 km, if necessary, it is possible to refuel in the air.
    Actually, not much has been manufactured for the Russian Air Force, as before, the bulk of the IAZ’s production is Su-30MKI for export to India. For comparison, in 1990. in the USSR, there were about 15 Su-27 regiments of about 40 vehicles per regiment.
