PLAAF Su-35 Weird Load

Recommended Posts

Don't know for sure but looks like ECM pods to me.

The ECM pods are on the wingtips... I believe the things on the underside of the intakes are training equipment to simulate electro-optical TV-guided bombs.

Apparently it can be attached to other pylons and, if the load is symmetric, it can be carrying 4 of them:

Dont think is is ECM pods. Can it be laser/tv guidance related? Very interesting.

Sure thing, I misread intakes for wingtips.

That makes sense.  In light of that it seems odd they would carry more than one for training EO targeting/delivery.
