    Work on Su-35BM not meeting schedules

    The pace of work on the creation of multi-mission Su-35 is poor, told reporters on Tuesday, Chief of Air Force Colonel General Alexander Zelin said.

    "As for the Su-35, then work on it do not go as I wanted," - said Zelin.

    According to him, according to RIA Novosti, in the creation of this machine has some glitches. According to Zelin, the Su-35 avionics and integrated defense system is inferior to American aircraft of the same type. "Our plane should be more protected from the air defenses of the enemy" - said the commander in chief.

    Russian AF chief: US fighters superior to Su-35S

    Russian Air Force chief Gen Alexander Zemin briefed reporters today on the eve of the MAKS air show next week. Zemin covered a wide variety of topics, but we'll try to summarise the most interesting.

    1. The Su-35S avionics and integrated defence system is inferior to "American fighters of the same type", Zemin said. Depending on how you interpret that phrase, Zemin is either implicitly endorsing Boeing's F-15 and F/A-18E/F, or perhaps Lockheed Martin's F-35 and F-22. My money is on the latter. Sadly, due to the "slow pace" of progress by Sukhoi, the Su-35's appearance at MAKS has been scratched.

    35BM is supposed to have the same base avionics and integrated defence as the PAK FA... bad news

    Not even close. On the Su-35 only the radar is the closest to PAKFA and even that is PESA and not AESA. Other than that there are a lot of things not present on the Su-35 compared to European and American versions, namely MAWS or equivalent systems.

    The Super 30 upgrade will make the MKI superior to the Su-35 in terms of radar and avionics. Only engine and supersonic performance is better on Su-35.

    There was a news recently that Russian air force will buy more Su 30 planes for its air force

    Reading it I was wondering what happened to Su 35

    This news just confirms that SU 35 will be delayed

    Any way take your time dear friends

    The Chinese wanted to buy Su 35 . Russians had even agreed to that proposal last year

    In another forum a Russian wrote that China will be given Su 35 after PAK FA is ready

    Now what happens to that

    Not even close, the only major difference to PAK FA avionics is the radar. The flight controls and integrated defence are the same. Every modern fighter has a MAWS of some kind. Spectra does the full spectrum, infrared, electromagnetic and laser threats. Russia doesn't come close, pretty obvious with this news.

    this is called a strategy russia is going to sell su35 to china and as per my information from my sources they are just making fool to us by showing that su35 is not up to level

    fact is that russia is helping china from behind the door and very soon they will get su35 and that will be a big problem for india


    guys try to see what is cooking behind the door

    guys think why our AC delayed just because till now china will make there own

    fact is that russia is not happy with our closeness toward usa

    think from diff angle if you want to see the truth

    arya,
    I concur with your thoughts, I think russia behind closed doors are doing something with respect to china, I also get a feeling that
    russia is going to sell SU-35's to china.
