Dmitry Shogayev, head of the Federal Service for Military Technical Cooperation, said at the Dubai Airshow 2019 that negotiations are still under way on supplying the UAE with Russian Su-35 fighter jets.

“Negotiations are underway to supply the Su-35 to the UAE and develop the fifth generation of light combat aircraft,” Shogayev said.

The Su-35S belongs to the fourth generation ++ fighter jet and is the best of its kind.

The fighter jet is able to fly at supersonic speeds without resorting to the use of a subsequent incendiary, which distinguishes the fifth generation of fighters.

The Su-35 also retains its superior maneuverability when flying at low speeds thanks to its propulsion engines.

The fighter is the best Russian combat aircraft now because the superior aircraft “Su-57” belonging to the fifth generation of fighter jets have not entered active service yet.

“Subsequent incendiary” is called afterburner and also other 4+ gen aircraft is capable of “supercruise”, e.g. supersonic speed w/o afterburner, for instance Rafale or Eurofighter.

Rafale is not 4+ gen. UAE upgraded Mirage-2000-9 is 4+ gen. Eurofighter Typhoon started its development as MBB TKF-90 at the same time Dassault started the devt of Mirage-2000/4000 in 1972. Rafale and F-22 started their devt within a year time (1983 and 1984). Both are 5th gen and with total radar invisibility added with the upcoming Rafale F4 upgrade which is already on order, Rafale will be the first 5.5th gen fighter. Now it’s true that Rafale’s stealth was classified until Dec.2015 and it’s also true it uses different and more advanced stealth methods than US aircraft, so few… Read more »

And India who makes hardcore tests on anything they buy, making all foreign suppliers mad about their decisionship process, has neither been interested in Su-35, nor MiG-35 and pulled out from the Su-57 project due to the fact Rafale is better than it all 🙂
IMHO, UAE (and Saudis) hope that due to big contracts on Russia, they’ll be able to push Russians into both calming down khamenei’s imperialist ambitions and stop supplying him in advanced military gear.
