    thrust of SU 30 MKI's engines will be increased by 20% according to this article. so thrust of upgraded engines will be 15000 kg.very good

    Seems a terrific upgrade... MKI will become a monster.. it has got everything now.. AESA , Decoy, new internal EW suite... looks like a beast with 2 brahmos ... on top of the above upgrade engines...

    Benny i have read some where that 117s engine offers thrust of 14,500 kg. but according to this article engines in super SU 30 MKI will offer 20% greater thrust than original ones. i.e 12500+ 20% of 12500 > 15,000 kg.

    so it is my conclusion that these engines wont be 117s.

    You mean the same engine of Su-35s? I too have doubt, co it says 4000 service life hours while this one has a astonishing 6000.

    I dont know how the Pakistanis are comparing this monster with there F-16 in there forum... they dont have a chance with Mig-29 upgraded... this MKI will create a havoc out of them with such a huge pay load...

    All Su30s will be getting the upgrades. There are two upgrade programs. One for the first 50 aircraft. The other for the rest of the aircraft.
