I don't see what's so special about it. It looks identical to the Su-27 Flanker. It says it's supposed to be the counter for the F-15 Strike Eagle. Except that it took the Russians 15 years after the Eagle was produced to make this thing. Now, the F-15 is almost old, and the F-22 Raptor is due to go into service in a few years.

Soviets were slow in producing it, it's not a new aircraft, built in the early 90's but never caught on becuase of the collapse of the soviet Union and the economy and such. The Su-30 with the forword canard wing( the smaller wing in front of the main wing near the cockpit) make it one of the most manueverable jet fighters in the world. still, as I see it

 

Stealth >>> manueverablitiy

simply amazing, most definitly a worthy opponent to any of our aircraft

 

Especially when compared to some of our older equipment like the F14 Tomcat. They both go Mach 2.3 and are capable of withstanding 9 G's... Interesting that the F-14 is going out of service and the Russians are selling these to India... Wonder why? :mischief2

 

In all seriousness, there are already three prototype aircraft in the US alone that could pants that thing courtesy of the Joint Strike Fighter competition. Read about the F35 here. It is capable of going supersonic from a VERTICAL takeoff! Now THAT is bad@ss!

the F-14 is my favorite aircraft and what they are doing to that aircraft is a shame, The Tomcat is still more capable of defending the fleet then the Super Hornet is, and seeing Tomcat squadron logos like the Jolly Rogers on super hornets make me sick

 

 

 

RIP
