"China not Abandoning Continuation of Su-27SK Licensed Production
China is not abandoning continuation of Su-27SK licensed production, the Sukhoy OKB general designer, Aleksey Knyshev, declared to an ARMS-TASS special correspondent at the Airshow China-2004 air salon, commenting on reports which had appeared on this subject in a number Russian media.
According to him, the other day he had taken part in a regular working round of discussions with the Chinese side on the topic.
As is known, assembly of the SU-27SK under license is under way at the aircraft plant in Shengyang at a production rate of 15 aircraft per year. In all, the assembly of 200 Su-27SK airplanes is provided for. As of now, KnAAPO has delivered 105 airplane kits according to the first stage of the contract. The contract still had not been signed for the second stage of the program, which provides for the delivery of another 95 airplane kits.
In the opinion of experts, some pause in the continuation of the licensed production of the Su-27SK is explained by two reasons. On the one hand, it is connected with averting the formation of too large a storage stock of spare parts. There are enough of those airplane kits which were delivered in the first stage of the contract considering the rate of production at the plant in Shengyang for another 2 ? years. As of now, 60 Su-27SK aircraft, which were assembled in accordance with the licensing agreement, have been transferred for service in the People’s Liberation Army of China’s air force.
Secondly, it has not been ruled out that the Chinese partners are examining an offer of the Russian side about the delivery of the remaining airplane kits not in the technical form which had been determined by the licensing agreement, but in the upgraded Su-27SKM variant. This airplane exceeds the capabilities of the Su-27SK, which is produced under license in Shengyang, in combat capabilities by 50 percent. In the event of China’s selection of the second variant, the receipt of corresponding decision documents and the conclusion of an inter-governmental agreement are needed which takes definite time.
In any case, according to the opinion of Russian specialists, licensed assembly will be continued. And the variant of selection of the technical aspect of the airplane is the customer’s jurisdiction."

, für die, die es ganz schnell übersetzt haben wollen ;)
BTW (und Deino wird es auch gelesen haben): so ein kleiner Computerfreak von einem staatlichen chinesichen Instituts hat (angeblich) die Software des Feuerleitsystems der Su geknackt ... was nicht unbedingt förderlich für die weitere Zusammenarbeit der beiden Vertragspartner ist ...
