Better to develop T-50 airframe and divest Flankers away from multiple variations. Currently they have Su-30 variations for both domestic and export, Su-34M, and Su-35S. I hate to say it, but there isn't enough money around for them to keep all the lines open.
NAPO and Irkut are one line (Su-34 and Su-30SM, respectively) each while Knaaz is narrowing down towards just Su-35 (only leftovers being Su-30MK family exports). Irkut talked about phasing out Flanker production at the end of this decade, so that would narrow it down to just two lines. That was before they got big domestic orders and a number of export contracts, so it maybe pushed back a few years...but either way that line is profitable and well-oiled.

Russia 'freezes' India out of MTA project, to proceed alone as Il-214 http://www.janes.com/article/57169/russia-freezes-india-out-of-mta-project-to-proceed-alone-as-il-214
When did Janes become so ****e? That news article is convoluted and one cant tell anything from it. In what world is PD-14M based on PS-90A? PD-14M is based on PD-14 and i assume it has FADEC the Indians whine so much about.
Who is this unnamed customer ? Russian Company Delivers Eight Il-76 Aircraft to 'Unnamed' Asian State http://sputniknews.com/business/20160113/1033068959/russian-unnamed-asia-il76.html
China of course.

Are they talking about "refurbished" ones? If so, it is old news. And I am pretty sure they are... The deal was done 4 years ago? And deliveries started 2 years ago. Maybe this is the end of it.

Also, VKS won't be acquiring any more Su-30 from KnAAZ.
I know.. They have only ordered the Su-30M2s as trainers for their Su-27SM/SM3s.

Yes, I have always wondered about the origin of those Su-30. China cancelled Su-27SK production license, and there were no Su-30 contracts cancelled.

News of the program resumption of production of the IL-114 http://bmpd.livejournal.com/1682031.html
According to news agency "Interfax-AVN", citing a source in the aircraft industry, the first four of the IL-114 will be built at the Nizhny Novgorod aircraft building plant "Sokol" of production touched Tashkent aircraft factory in 2018. The source added that in parallel to the "Falcon" will be organized assembly of advanced aircraft IL-114-300. "The first such aircraft will be ready in 2019", - he said. The interlocutor of the agency noted that until 2012, mass production of IL-114 was conducted in an aircraft factory in Tashkent, then the plant switched to other products, releasing a total of 17 machines. "On an aircraft factory in Tashkent was a production backlog for aircraft IL-114. With the aircraft factory negotiations, and he is willing to sell everything you need from the product backlog to build on the" Falcon "first Il-114. This will accelerate the deployment of mass production of this type of aircraft in Russia ", - said the source. According to him, in the United Engine Corporation assured that the problems with the supply of engines TV7-117SM for IL-114 will not. "The interest of the military to patrol version of the Il-114 also weakened, as it has a duration flight of at least 11 hours and allows you to install it on all the necessary equipment to patrol," - a spokesman said.

Or the fact that Knaaz is nearby ;) . Good to see that the Su-35's production/induction issues seem to be slowly getting regulated.

UEC is preparing for the establishment of the engine with a thrust of up to 35 tons http://www.ato.ru/content/odk-gotovitsya-k-sozdaniyu-dvigatelya-s-tyagoy-do-35-tonn
United Engine Corporation (UEC) is preparing for the creation of high-thrust turbofan engines for advanced civil aircraft. As told at the last in the Central Institute of Aviation Motors (CIAM) Conference "Aero Engines of XXI Century" Deputy General Designer of the corporation Victor Belousov, to this end, a member of the JDC Perm company "" OAO is studying the possibility of increasing the gas generator of the new PD-14 engine. PD-14 with a thrust of 14 tons is designed for Russia's new single-aisle aircraft MS-21. In late October began its flight tests on a flying laboratory IL-76LL. According to the chief designer of the engine family of PD in the company "" OAO Igor Maximov, in the line of big motors base is supposed to make the PD-35 with a thrust of 35 tons. For the new plant is expected to scale gasifier from the PD-14 with the addition of an extra step at the outlet of the high pressure compressor . As a result, the number of compressor stages and turbine PD-35 will be 9 + 2, the diameter of the inlet to the compressor will rise to 815 mm compared to 582 mm for PD-14. It is assumed that the diameter of the fan motor will make a new 3100 mm, length of the engine - more than 8 m, weight - about 8 tons. On the basis of the PD-35 will be developed with a thrust power plants 28 (PD-28) and 24 m (PD-24). The first two engines planned to offer two options and chetyrehdvigatelnyh promising widebody long-haul aircraft, the last - to haul widebody aircraft and long-term heavy military transport aircraft, it was noted in the presentation of the representative of the "" OAO. Possible applications of the new engine could be a wide-body aircraft, which are jointly developing the Russian United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) and the Chinese corporation COMAC. It is expected that the aircraft seating capacity up to 280 people. C929 with the working title will make its first flight in 2021 and will be commissioned in 2025 Victor Belousov said that similar work on the high-thrust engines lead to other enterprises of the holding - in Samara company "Kuznetsov". It considered the possibility of the development of power plants thrust up to 35 tonnes on the basis of the gas generator of the turbojet engine NK-32, which is now installed at strategic bombers Tu-160. According to Belousov, both options are considered as a promising power unit with direct drive and driven through the gearbox.

"Ilyushin" develop a passenger version of the Il-96-400T January 13, 2016 Maxim Pyadushkin http://www.ato.ru/content/ilyushin-razrabotaet-passazhirskuyu-versiyu-il-96-400t
The company "Ilyushin" plans to develop a new wide-body passenger modification of the Il-96. "We go out with a proposal to launch the initiative on the basis of the Il-96-400 passenger aircraft," - said the January 13 General Director Sergey Velmozhkin. The original version of Il-96-400T designed as a cargo version of the basic passenger version of IL-96-300 is distinguished by its extended 9.6 m fuselage, an increase of 20 tonnes maximum take-off weight (270 tons) and more powerful engines PS-90A1. It was built four such aircraft, three of which were operated until 2013 the airline "Polet" has ceased its activities. Two of the existing board of this type is converted to an air control point Il-96-400VPU first ready. Two more aircraft will be converted into tankers Il-96-400TZ. According Velmozhkina, the contract for this work with the Ministry of Defence has already been signed. "But the question is still at the stage of presentation of evidence that IL-96 can be used as a tanker," - he explained. For the passenger version, some components of the IL-96-400 will be upgraded, but the aircraft to maintain the current PS-90 engines. At the same time discusses the use of this modification of the new PD-14 engine, which is designed for single-aisle aircraft MS-21. Representatives of "Ilyushin" say the fuel efficiency that four-engine plane will be at the western analogues. Make of IL-96 twin-engine car will be if Russia will be developed by the engine thrust of 32-35 tons, the company stressed. As previously stated by representatives of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), in the development plans of the family PD-14 is the creation of a traction engine, but the timing of its development has not yet been determined.

The foremost singular aperture is a MAWS, and the adjacent twin aperture is a LWR: https://pp.vk.me/c633120/v633120542/5c22/CoTuFnrlZL4.jpg
From the picture it seems these MAWS covers the frontal 180 * of the aircraft there is no aperture at the rear side or underneath the fuselage . Does the picture cover all the placement areas or Su-35 does not cover 360 * bubble for aircraft ? How does single aperture differ from twin ?

Underside of the stinger has an air-ground link antenna and the triangles on the stinger are RWR's. http://i.imgur.com/GODHZfT.jpg Since 2014 production the stinger flare boxes has been moved to the underside of the stinger.

Pastel RWR sensors are on tail fins. I think triangles on the stinger are jammers.
