There has been news of Pakistan being interested in buying Su-35's. See link below

Yesterday The PM of Pakistan, Mr.Imran Khan visited Pakistan Air Force's HQ. There he met with all the top PAF sector commanders.

The PM was accompanied by a high level delegation including the Foreign Minister, Defence Minister, Advisor on Finance, and Minister for Defence Production among others.

Procurement of +/-36 Su-35's from Russia was approved subject to mutually acceptable terms and conditions.

Are they coming with their radar Irbis-E radar or with Chinese AESA radar as previously it was reported/ rumoured that Su-35 negotiations were failed because of this ....

So Pakistan is learning from Turkish example that to get some top of the line weapons systems, you have to have diverse options available or be handycapped by a US specific wish list that renders it wishful thinking.

Isnt there some rumor doing rounds that UAE might be interested in SU35s of its own?
That is true - Rumours only. But a 5th Gen project was being explored, no news on that.

Great news @Khafee , does the Chinese SU-35 use Chinese missiles or Russian. What options would Pk get?
I think they are capable of using both, i.e. Chinese and Russians.

PAF will get the same facility.

That would be great, as this would enable PAF with 2 aircrafts with same ammo.
I think this is why PAF is thinking about procuring it.

The PM and COAS have given PAF the go ahead. Now Russia needs to make sure the offer is sweet enough for PAF to bite.

Things like MRO, Source codes, etc
