Su-35C: pending a new contract

68
In early April, the leadership of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) recalled its plans for the construction of multi-purpose fighter Su-35С. The works are proceeding in accordance with the schedule, due to which the existing contract for the supply of such aircraft to the 48 air force will be completed on time. The last batch of fighters under the current contract will be transferred to the customer in 2015 year.




In early February of this year, the troops were handed over 12 fighters Su-35С, built in the past 2013 year. Until the end of 2014, it is planned to build, test and transfer to the military even 12 aircraft. In 2015, the military will receive the last batch of aircraft under the current contract. Next year, the KLA will transfer 14 airplanes. By the end of 2013, the troops already had 10 Su-35С aircraft. The implementation of existing plans will allow by the end of next year to bring their total number to the required 48.

The contract for the supply of X-NUMX fighters Su-48 was signed in the summer of 35, at the international aerospace show MAKS-2009 in Zhukovsky near Moscow. Shortly after the signing of this document, information appeared on the future plans of the Ministry of Defense regarding new equipment for the Air Force. It was argued that after the delivery of the Su-2009S serial fighter jets, a second contract could be signed, according to which the KLA would build the same number of aircraft. For obvious reasons, until recently, such a contract was only a matter of discussion.

Now, the approximate dates for the appearance of such an agreement have become known. According to ARMS-TASS, the contract for the supply of the following 48 Su-35C fighters will be signed at the end of 2014 of the year or at the beginning of 2015. The construction of new aircraft will be conducted until about the end of this decade. Thus, thanks to two contracts, the total number of Su-35C fighters in the troops will reach 96 units, which will accordingly affect the capabilities of the Air Force.

After completing the two contracts, the Su-35S will become one of the largest fighters in the Russian Air Force, second only to the Su-27 and MiG-29 and their modifications. It should be noted that, in terms of their characteristics, new aircraft surpass the existing technology and, therefore, the lag in quantity can be compensated by a qualitative superiority. As a result, the air force will be able to seriously upgrade its fleet of equipment, both in quantitative and qualitative terms.

As follows from the current plans for the development of the air force, the Su-35С fighter is intended to become a “transitional link” between the available technology and the promising T-50 aircraft. This feature of the fighter is reflected in its classification: Su-35С belongs to the generation of 4 ++. This means that it meets some of the requirements for the fifth generation, although it is a development based on the projects of the previous generation.

The Su-35S aircraft was created based on the developments of previous projects of the Su-27 family, however, it has a number of serious differences. During the creation of a new fighter, most of the units taken as a basis were seriously changed. In addition, this fighter uses a large number of new components and assemblies. The processing of the airframe design allowed not only to preserve its aerodynamic properties, but also to improve its performance. The declared airframe resource is 6 thousand hours, which corresponds approximately to 30 operating years.

On the Su-35С two turbojet engines AL-41Ф1С are installed with afterburner for 14000 kg. An important feature of these engines is the thrust vector deflection system. The engine nozzle can change the direction of the thrust vector within ± 20 ° from the longitudinal axis of the engine. According to reports, the engine AL-41F1С has a greater resource in comparison with other engines. The total engine life is 4 thousand hours, between-repairs - 1 thousand hours.

Su-35S fighter is equipped with modern electronic equipment. A key component of the avionics is a radar H035 "Irbis", equipped with a passive phased antenna array. To observe the surrounding space and search for targets, the aircraft also carries the OLS-35 optical-electronic system. All the necessary information is displayed on two multifunctional color liquid-crystal screens and the HUD in the cockpit.

On the external suspension, the Su-35C can carry up to 8 tons of various weapons. On the 4, the ventral and 8 wing pylons can accommodate missiles and bombs of various types. The aircraft is able to use all existing domestic guided and unguided ammunition. There is a built-in automatic gun GSH-30-1 caliber 30 mm.

The term “35 ++ generation” was introduced by experts to designate the Su-4C fighter. On the set of characteristics, this aircraft cannot be considered a representative of the 5-th generation of fighters. At the same time, its capabilities are significantly higher than those of the 4 and 4 + fighter generations. In this regard, it was necessary to introduce into circulation a new term.

Taking into account the aircraft transmitted in early February, the total number of Su-35C in the air force at the moment is 22 units. 12 fighters serve at Dzemgi airbase in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. New fighters will also arrive in the Air Force combat units. By the end of next year, the total number of Su-35С in the Air Force will reach the planned 48 units, after which, apparently, the construction of new equipment of this type will begin.

    The Su -35С is a great device. They need an army not 48, but at least two hundred ... I'm worried about something else ... Serdyukov a thief, practically buried the MIG corporation. And light front-line fighters are not just a shortage, but a real hole in the air force and air defense.

      Recently there was information that the Moscow Region is preparing or has signed a contract with MIG for the supply of MIG29 KUB aircraft.
      The corporation has long had problems in foreign markets, they lost all the latest tenders for the supply of MIG aircraft, I don’t know what this is connected with, but I probably need to create some new light fighter.
      Yes, and in the world market the trend is towards multi-purpose aircraft such as the Sukhoi and Boying brands.

        Serdyukov buried Mig?

        Authors that you smoke. Those. (CORPORATION) "Mig" was a rising star, orders were for hundreds of cars a year, but Serdyukov came and they were gone? Ruined? Let's not forget won't forgive?

        Or, under any topic, you can write without hesitation - Serdyukov the thief broke everything? The 1998 army and the 2008 army are two big differences? So under Grachev there was an army for all armies — not that Serdyukovschina?

        Here they lived before Serdyukov, and fuel and lubricants in bulk and contracts, and in general the army was breathing. The officers received $ 1500 each, the equipment did not break down, the warehouses did not burn?

          About how Poghosyan strangles MIG - this is the same story as now in Ukraine in all media.

          Russians are to blame for everything, if not for them, we would be a European Power and the surplus would be in the balance of a trillion.

          I already see how Poghosyan going to work through the checkpoint thinks not about the T-50, but about how to annoy the MIGs. Smother them. Thinking about how he gave Serdyukov a bribe so that he would ruin the MIG

            I completely agree, everyone quickly forgot how the "migovs" built office buildings instead of developing new planes ... That's the result on the face, the money pulled out of production is now haunted by failures in international tenders ...

          Su-33 is not outdated. They just went through renovation. As far as I know, MiG-29 was bought only to ensure that there was no bankruptcy of MiG.

          First, can you tell where and when our radars saw the F-22? Just not to be unfounded. And in peacetime they put Lunenberg lenses on it, but you certainly don’t know what it is.
          Secondly, there are no invisible aircraft. Stealth only allows you to significantly reduce the detection distance, but does not make the pepelats invisible.

It’s possible to kill everything. Pilots refuse to fly because of fear of suffocation. It seems that oxygen equipment (KO) was developed by 6th grade students, not specialists.

      Do not forget about the Su-30, and the T-50 will be launched in the same series. In general, the appetite comes at a time, not so long ago, we did not even dream of such contracts. One plane delivered per year was presented as a rearmament of the army, and at the same time, there were not so many moans that it was not enough.

    In all respects - there are catastrophically few modern machines for the Air Force

    With enviable constancy there are articles about the Su-35S. Objectively, this is the incitement of the dubious activity of Pagosyan. At least you call the Su-135 unconditionally outstanding Su-27 and add more stars, but this is the ideology of 40 years ago. If memory serves, the first flight of the T-10 made 37 years ago. However, the F-22 was discontinued, three versions of the F-35 at the exit. And we are fooled by the Su-37, then by asterisks, then by a point on the Su-34 - a very important element for front-line aviation. When I flew on the Su-24 over the river, I thought about something else.

      Do you know that in addition to the Su-35S and PAK FA they will buy?! So why 4 ++ in large numbers, if by 2020 there will be the 5th generation of fighters in the army.

        Well, I'm glad that at least sound thoughts visit you! The last 30 people only do that they moan a little and a little (without delving into it). Since 2017, PAK FA has promised to deliver mass-produced ones; for 2015-2016, ten pieces will be delivered individually, I think. So by 2020, the Air Force will have ~ 40-50 pieces of the 5th generation.

          In short, it is clear why the Su-27SM appeared .... because then only on the P / PD and C it is already difficult to "compete" with the adversaries.
          Plus, on the 35th, there is another power ratio. Which allowed to put Irbis, because H001 (with any letters) is no longer an ice.
          Another glider line-up. Which allowed to accommodate more fuel .. with all the consequences. (Well, the fact that they removed a lot of everything is already understandable .. where did the reduction in empty weight come from).
          Other engines. Which allowed to increase the range and duration + OBT.
          Another avionics, SUV and MSA, which allowed to use everything that is now and will be in the future.
          Another control system .... in general, Anton ... almost a different plane. rather, more versatile and functional. capable of solving a wider range of tasks. than the Su-27CM3 can (the more so we have them ... well, generally not very many),

            Personally, I like it more, a full-fledged multifunctional, it will be able to perform a wider range of tasks than the Su-35, plus it has already been developed production will be cheaper and faster in production. And if you also hang a sighting complex on it, it will be very good "shock workers". Two pilots in this case is definitely a plus.

              According to the glider, this is the same Su-27. Therefore, like on his dad, suspensions are heavier than one and a half tons on him. So who is better than the drummer, there’s another question. Plus power consumption restrictions. So, the electronic defense group defense station is also unlikely.

                Group protection should a specialized electronic warfare aircraft. Do you want to hang an airplane control and work with electronic warfare equipment on one SU-35 pilot? With that emphasis on automation in the US Air Force in EW aircraft from 2 people.
                It’s hard for me to imagine that some pilots will be able to fly a highly maneuverable aircraft and search for ground targets.

    Already, the pace of machine assembly has reached 12, so it is unclear why the contract should still be on 48. If you rivet to 2020, then not 4, but at least 5, but rather all 6 squadrons, should be able to issue.

    Of course, a wonderful car. There is everything. It works like a clock. If you align with the years 41-45, this is the type of Yak -9. Are you surprised ???? Why equal. Yes, elementary. How many Yak-9 planes were shot down in the war 41-45 ???? Well - about 10 - TENS. This is what our factories issued on the mountain for two days of war. . So roughly it turns out ????. In the Doomsday War, 4-5 pieces a day are enough for a week. And then ?????? Silence .. No, at such a pace and such a machine you won’t win. It should be simpler and cheaper. So that one machine in two three hours. Now it will be that. And then 10 cars a year. This is generally no good.

      the car is really good ..
      But only with a light fighter (like the Yak9) life ceased, but it does not reach a heavy one ...
      and in this form no one needs (example - India).
      and its massive purchase will deprive Russia of a (really) light fighter like the MIG-29

    is it a mockery?
    Sorry, but the Russian Air Force is not already being considered in the evolutionary aspect of the USSR Air Force?
    the number of aircraft deployed is ridiculous compared to the former potential of the Union ...

    The Air Force needs a light single-engine fighter, and the MIG has such a development under the cloth. But unfortunately, while the state will not overpower it financially, at least Poghosyan said that for the next 10-15 years, for sure. So far, resources are enough only for small-scale production of the Su-35S and the development of PAK FA and PAK DA.

      Recently, the Yak-130 crashed. One died. They say something happened to the engine there. It would be 2, it is unlikely that it happened. I don't want to lose pilots for this reason. Then, in addition to reliability, there is also traction equipment (for the F-35 this is one of the main "splinters"). In my opinion, we have already passed the single-engine stage in the USSR - the MiG-21,23.
      I myself witnessed the disaster of the MiG-23 at the air training range on September 16.09.1988, 23. The story is the same - the engine is jammed. It was like this . The MiG-XNUMX went into combat and began diving at a target, dropping a bomb, getting out of a dive and climbing. And so, when he began to climb, the engine got up. The pilot from the cadets was at the time not oriented and died. He was a Libyan. Shucher to heaven began.
      I think the twin-engine will be more serious. hi

The F-35 was also accepted for service with a bunch of flaws. And as the sources (in the US) say, they are irreparable. We do not need this "massively". lol So go quietly, you will continue. yes

    Su-35 is the newest highly maneuverable multifunctional Russian fighter to gain air supremacy. Created using 5th generation technology.
    Able to detect and hit manned and unmanned aerial vehicles. The armament has guided missiles, air bombs and artillery weapons. Able to fly at any time of the day, regardless of weather conditions. Able to carry out automatic flight at extremely low altitudes with the envelope of the terrain. In addition, the aircraft can be used for ground reconnaissance at land and naval theaters of war. Currently, flight tests of the Su-35.
    The main feature of the aircraft is a new avionics complex based on a digital information management system, a new radar station with a phased antenna array. It provides a large range of detection of air targets, their classification. At the same time it can accompany up to 30 and shell up to 8 targets.
    Specialists note the great potential of the aircraft. This is a kind of flying command post with very smart brains. The Su-35 surpasses in its characteristics fighters of the world's leading manufacturers - Mirage, Gripen, F-16, F-18. According to Western experts, it is capable of making serious competition to the American fifth-generation fighter F-5 Raptor.
