    You won't see any more RuAF planes in that camo, luckily.

    You are confusing a bit here. That is indeed MiG-31BM. The double pylon you speak of, that is found on "vanilla" MiG-31's, and that double pylon carries only R-60's. Or the double pylon can be removed and main carries the even more out dated R-40. So MiG-31 can carry either:

    4 R-33's (under belly of course)
    4 R-60's

    Or;

    4 R-33's
    2 R-40's (there is only one hardpoint on each wing for weapons, the second hardpoint is for the never ever used fuel tanks, in fact they are not allowed)

    BM can carry;

    4 R-33's
    4 R-73's (two on each wing, the fuel tank hardpoint was converted to a weapon one)

    No R-60, no R-40.

    Moar Su-30SM's and Yak-130's, all in proper camo.

    Thank you a lot for your very detailed answer, I had confused the R-60 and R-73 AAMs.

    So finally RuAF has agreed on one camo??

    I have asked this many times, I see new camos under RuAF service all the time: Su-25s got a new one, Mil-28s another one, Mi-24/35s some more, Su-30s also another one, Mi-17 (OMG), the Su-27/35 fleet is so messy and last but not least the MiG-29s which somehow after the SMTs it seems other models follow a similar pattern. In Russia after a modernization or overhaul program, an aircraft gets another camo! Only Su-24s and MiG-31s from the fighters fleet have the same camo without all these variations.

    New order;

    Su-27SM3 - Su-30SM - Su-35S - Yak-130 = all same blue/grey camo
    Mi-28N - Ka-52 - Mi-35M - Mi-8's??? = all same camo now, this:



    Su-34 is back to the old, but "original camo" that it doesn't share with any other planes. Haven't seen the new Su-25SM's yet, they are supposed to be in camo, but maybe the factories will paint in grey anyway til they run out, we will see. They grey saga wasn't really as messy as you suggest, but i have covered that before and cant be ****d to do so again. :P

    So not entirely one camo. One camo for fighters, one camo for helicopters, one camo for Su-34 and maybe one camo for Su-25's.

    As much as I liked the previous paint scheme, I have to admit that this one is better. Can't wait to see the PAK-FA painted like this.

    As to T-50 i really really, really, hope so too. My face would melt at the sight of that i think. Til then, here is some old fan art:



    Since i am on a roll, spreading gospel of one true camo scheme, here are some more shots of new Su-35S:

    Is the speed sensor issue solved on the Su-35S fleet? As I see the KNAAZ 80 demo flight with the two solo Su-35S (the dark grey 04 and the new no-numbered one) the TVC system seems to be inactive during the flights. And I did not find any post stall maneuver on these photos...
