The Su-35 is a 4++ generation aircraft employing technologies of the fifth generation. They make it superior to all other 4th generation fighters now under development worldwide
The first experimental Su-35, completed in summer 2007 at Komsomolsk-na-Amure Aviation Production Association (KnAAPO) first appeared at Russia’s MAKS-2007 air show.
Less than a minute before the first of the Indian Air Force or IAF’s Sukhoi 30 fighters was to do a touch and go on the new Agra-Lucknow Expressway, a dog strayed into the meticulously rehearsed event.
The dog strutted down the middle of the air strip like a show horse and very nearly caused the IAF to abort the manoeuvres of its top gun fighters.
Irkut Corporation (a member of UAC) participates in AERO INDIA 2017 Air Show (Bangalore, 14-18 February). The corporate products are represented in models of Su-30MKI, Yak-130, MC-21, and Yak-152 aircraft at the stand of UAC.
Su-30MKI multirole fighters are the exceptional exhibits of AERO INDIA 2017. These aircraft constitute the backbone of the Indian Air Force. Traditionally, Su-30MKIs are presented at static display and in the flight program of the air show.
Su-30MKI program comprising development, deliveries, establishment of licence manufacturing, has become one the most successful Russia’s military-technical cooperation programmes. While participating in numerous international exercises, the pilots of Indian Air Force flying Su-30MKI fighters have been repeatedly winning combat training engagements against modern fighter aircraft of various types.
Currently, Indian enterprises are building up Su-30MKI overhaul infrastructure.
The presentation on Su-30MKI program status is available at the official web-site of Irkut Corporation.
The Russian Defense Ministry has published a jaw-dropping video of the state-of-the-art multirole Su-35S fighter jet on its YouTube channel.
The Su-35S’s super-maneuverability is provided by a new engine with thrust vector control, which allows the aircraft to reach supersonic speeds without using afterburners.
Defined as a Generation 4++ fighter, the Su-35S is capable of flying at a speed of up to 2,400 kilometers per hour and ascending to a height of 20,000 meters.
The plane’s maximum range stands at 3,600 kilometers, and with an additional fuel tank the figure can be increased by 900 kilometers. Notably, the Su-35S was developed with the help of high technology used in the creation of Russia’s fifth generation aircraft, the T-50 PAK FA.
Last year, the German magazine Stern said that it is the Su-35S, not the fifth-generation US F-22 warplane, that can be considered the world’s deadliest fighter jet.
