What are the differences between Sukhoi-35 and MiG-35?

Both warbirds are equally as good as one another when it comes to their multirole missions. Both are as equally as agile. The
differences is pointed towards the size of the jets. The Su-35 is far bigger, an advance version of the legacy Flanker model. It is able to carry weapons on 12 hard points as compared to the MiG 8 hard points.

The Su-35 has an additional 30% more range. In terms of weapons, it could carry a much heavier and bigger weapons than the MiG such as the long range anti ship Brahmos missile as well as the much longer range  R-27 missiles. These missiles comes in various sizes which in most instance equates from medium to longer ranges. the MiG on the other hand could carry the smaller R-27 model.

The Su-35 is similar to the F-15 Eagle in USAF while the MiG-35 (Above) perform the same function as the F-16 Fighting Falcon

The MiG-35 is a vast improvements over the legacy MiG-29. It has addressed the weak points of the legacy Fulcrum

Both jets has a two seat models in the form of MiG-35D and Su-35UB.Both are combat capable fighters. The other differences is related to cost. The MiG-35 is much cheaper to buy and to operate. A country with defence requirements that focus on affordability and multirole missions would go for the MiG-35. Its cheaper to operate than the Su-35 in terms of fuel cost, and maintenance on per man hour cost. For example the Royal Malaysian Air Force has indicated that the cost of operating the Su-30MKM over the MiG-29N is roughly about 40% differences in cost.

The Su-35 is the most superior aircraft among the 2 warbirds in the Russian Air Force. It is also one of the most capable air superiority fighters in the world alongside the F-22 Raptor.

The MiG-35 Fulcrum-F is a   multirole fighter. It is able to perform as equally as that of the Su-35 but at a much lower cost and lesser range on internal fuel. However its an ideal warbird for countries not needing the Su-35 capabilities.
 if a country has a desire for a multiple fighter that requires a country to patrol its long borders, with less need for flight refuelling tanker, and able to carry a variety of air to air missiles as well being agile enough to compete and fight against some of the best jets on earth, the Sukhoi Su-35 gets the vote. This would be ideal in a case for countries like India with a large border against its nemesis, China and Pakistan or like Indonesia where it has over 18,000 islands from the stretches of Sumatra to Papua New Guinea, it needs a jet that can patrol at long distances.
The MiG-35 on the other hand is also a superior machine in terms of cost. It is ideal for any nation balancing their budget with affordability and lethality and appreciate the technology that has gone into a suburb machine which was once feared by the west in the 80s! The MIG-35 is a sound proposition for any nation that does not require the superior of the Su-35.
