Re: Su-30: News and Discussion

Look at in terms of where the MKI is different from the MKK (at least cursorily) - canards, TVC, HUMS, OBOGS?. THese would add weight. At the same time advanced avionics components such as LCDs, processors and analog replacements should save weight, plus the addition of composites. There will be so...

About the N012, how many targets can it track and attack? Does the MKK have this radar as well? Also about the engine, is it really 13300kgf(29400lbf)? Everywhere I see Al-31fp seems to be nothing but Al-31f with thrust vectoring. It's the same 12500kgf thrust. The only site which says it has a high...
