    Default New photo of Sukhoi-30MKI

    The Sukhoi Su-30 MKI (NATO reporting name Flanker-H) is a variant of the Sukhoi Su-30, jointly-developed by Russia's Sukhoi Corporation and India's HAL for the Indian Air Force. It is a heavy class, long-range, multi-role, air superiority fighter and strike fighter. The variant also consists of French, Israeli and Indian subsystems. The MKI variant is a much more advanced fighter jet than the basic K and MK variants and is considered a 4.5 generation fighter. Due to similar features and components, the MKI variant is often considered to be a customized Indian variant of the Sukhoi Su-35.

    World map of Su-27 and Su-30 operatorsSukhoi OKB has pursued new variants of the Su-27 family and has given them a bewildering range of new designations as marketing ploys. One Western observer commented on the Sukhoi OKB in 1995: "They produced more new designations than airframes this year."


    List of Su-30 variants:

    Su-27PU: Long range interceptor based on two-seater Su-27UB trainer. Later renamed Su-30.
    Su-30: Testbed fighter with canards added.
    Su-30M: Basically an upgraded Su-27PU, first real multi-role aircraft in Su-27 family.
    Su-30K: Commercial version of the basic Su-30. 50 units sold to India and later upgraded to Su-30MKI.
    Su-30KI: Sukhoi proposal for upgrading Russian AF single seat Su-27S. Also proposed export version for Indonesia, only single seat in Su-30 family.
    Su-30KN: Upgrade for operational two-seat fighters, the Su-27UB, Su-30 and Su-30K.
    Su-30MK: The commercial version of Su-30 first revealed in 1993.
    Su-30M2: upgraded Su-30MK with canards and TVC.
    Su-30MKA: Export version for Algeria
    Su-30MKI: Export version for India with TVC, canards.
    Su-30MKK: Export version for China
    Su-30MK2: Su-30MKK with upgraded electronics that enabled support for antiship missiles
    Su-30MK3: Su-30MKK with Zhuk MSE radar and Support for Kh-59MK antiship missile.
    Su-30MK2V: Su-30MK2 variant for Vietnam with minor modifications.
    Su-30MKM: Export version for Malaysia
    Su-30MKV: Export version for Venezuela
    After years of negotiations, India decided to purchase 40 Su-30 aircraft and acquired the licence from Sukhoi and Russia to manufacture an additional 140 Su-30 MKI aircraft. India's Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) is the largest manufacturer of the Sukhoi Su-30 in the world.

    Sukhoi-30MKI did't used their radars in the Red Flag exercises. I think it's time that we change the radar of the aircraft and equip the aircraft with an AESA radar

    The present PESA radar in MKI's are quite capable. Let India get it's first AESA radar in form of MMRCA aircraft, gain some experience and then we can fit a more capable AESA radar on MKI's in it's mid life update. I don't see it hapenning before atleast 2015 timeframe.
