dari forum sebelah, dikabarkan sebuah Su-35BM jatuh... pesawat jatuh saat test fligt di Knaapo test range. Pilot eject dan selamat... belum ada info resmi dari pihak rusia. tapi diyakini info 100% benar...
The Sukhoi Su-35BM alias Su-27BM or Su-27SM2 is a heavy class, long-range, multi-role, air superiority and strike fighter. It is an improved variant of the Sukhoi Su-27 and is considered to be 4++ generation. The Su-35M was unveiled at the MAKS-2007 airshow.
Differences with the Su-35
One of the most noticeable differences from the Su-35 is that the canards have been removed, although there is an option for them to be added, such as on the Su-30 series. This new airframe design reduces the aircraft's radar cross section. The aircraft's engines have also been improved to the 117S and the air intakes are enlarged. A probe and drogue in-flight refueling system has been added as well.
Aside from its obvious physical differences, not only have the Su-35BM's avionics have also received significant improvements, but they are also entirely of Russian origin. The Su-35BM is equipped with an improved passive electronically scanned array N035 Irbis radar system, as well as additional rear mounted radar in its shortened tail sting, later production will use IRBIS-E Radar an Improved N035 with more powerful peak power and better ECCM characteristic. An L175M Khibiny-M self-defense electronic countermeasures and electronic warfare system has also been installed, future production will include new Irbis-E Radar with more powerful search ability.
The thingypit has been redesigned with two LCD screens and compatibility with helmet-mounted displays. The Su-35BM's software has added compatibility with new weapons systems. Other new avionics include a long-range information targeting and jam-resistant datalink capability and an electronic reconnaissance system. Newer, lighter systems have been added (including a brand new FNO (Fly by Optics) flight-control system and OLS). The avionics are integrated with GLONASS radio-based satellite navigation system.
ada dua proto terbang yang jadi, dengan nomor 901 dan 902 dengan warna camo yg berbeda, keduanya tanpa sayap bebek (canard), gak tau yang jatuh yang mana? jangan2 yang pesenan kita kata kang aries he he...
KHABAROVSK, April 27 (RIA Novosti) - A prototype of the advanced Su-35 Flanker multi-role fighter plane burst into flames during take-off procedures at a testing ground in Russia's Far East, a spokesman for the Komsomolsk-on-Amur aircraft plant said on Monday.
"The accident occurred at 09.55 Moscow time [05.55 GMT] on Sunday at the Dzemgi airfield during the Su-35 prototype's take-off," Vitaly Tyulkin said, adding that the pilot ejected safely.
"We will announce the details of the accident later in the day," he said.
Sources earlier said the accident could have been caused by a faulty fuel pump.
The aircraft was one of the three prototypes to test the new fighter, which has been billed as "4++ generation using fifth-generation technology."
The Sukhoi aircraft maker said in March that successful flight tests involving two prototypes had confirmed the earlier-announced timeframe for deliveries of the aircraft to Russian and foreign customers in 2011.
The company had planned to add a third prototype to the testing program in the second half of 2009, and to boost the current number of test flights to 150-160.
Su-35 fighter, powered by two 117S engines with thrust vectoring, combines high maneuverability and the capability to effectively engage several air targets simultaneously using both guided and unguided missiles and weapon systems.
The aircraft also features the new Irbis-E radar with a phased antenna array, which allows the pilot to detect and track up to 30 air targets, while simultaneously engaging up to eight targets.
It is equipped with a 30-mm cannon with 150 rounds, and can carry up to eight metric tons of combat payload on 12 external mounts.
Sukhoi plans to export at least 160 Su-35 fighters to several countries including India, Malaysia and Algeria.
