Bloody Hell that does look like a seriously beefed up 29. Kewl. Cockpit looks pilot friendly too.

Whats is the purpose of the dorsal hump, does it accommodate avionics or fuel?

ECM Gardenia + some fuel

 

Between frames NЗB and N8 the tank on 1400 Litres, and in a tail part, between frames N8 and N 10 - a tank on 480 Litres is disposed.

Seems like almost all the modern flavours of the MIG and the Sukhoi go for the dorsal hump upgrade. Kind of off topic here but I wonder why the Russian designers have never considered the CFT approach (say F-15) for fuel coupled with the dorsal hump jam packed only with avionic upgrades, I mean redesigning the landing gear to make room for CFT's would'nt be that big a task would it ? Any thoughts/input from those who truly know aircrafts would be apreciated.

 

Cheers !

Su-35BM & some others has additional fuel in Vertical tails, all modern Su versions, since su-27M (Su-35) is FT capable versions {PTB-2000 & PTB-3000 used}

 

All Mig-29 planes HAS PTB-1550 on Central pylon, this capacity FT cant' be Increased, due problem with using airbrakes & aerodinamic problems, early mig-29 ca't use on wing FT, because of insufficient strength of a wing, since 9-13 & with some export versions 9-12, this problem was solwed & 2 PTB-1150 were added.

 

СМТ is a project of modernisation, it was developed for modernisation base 9-12 at the minimum alterations of a design.

 

MiG-29K, KUB, 35 - is new planes with new wings & airbrakes & tails parts & air intakes {no gills on top parts}

Yeah, that must be an F-101A to have those cannons.

Ah and Su-17/20/22 but only avionics without additional fuel in dorsal hump.

 

Not right! Su-17M3 & su-17M4 has new fuselage with big dorsal for get better view for pilot, not for additional avionics;

 

in Su-17m3 in dorsal also placed addlitional fuel

 

su-17 has - 2790 kg fuel

 

Su-17M - 2980 Kg

 

Su-17M2 - 3145 Kg

 

Su-17M3 - 4020 Kg

 

Su-17M4 - 3770 Kg
