Ah, yes indeed, I see what you mean.

What kind of a dictator are you when you are naming a plane after yourself...

A couple of weeks ago I was given a book called Twenty-first century warplanes and helicopters After looking through the most important planes and started reading it I found out that the text about the Russian Su-27 "Flanker" sounded really promising, looking at the plane specifications and then comparing it with some of the best fighters today like the Eurofighter and the Raptor (only counting few) It became very clear to me that the Su-27 didn't a competetor when it came to speed, ceiling and thrust.

I do know that air-comat in the future will be all about BVR, stealth and missiles, and not about agility. but looking at the Flankers specifications I have to say that even the American president would have to admit that the Su-27 is engineering at the best.

The following text is an extract from the book Twenty-first century warplanes and helicopters.

Designed as a gigh-performance fighter with a fly-by-wire control system, the highly manoverable Su-27 is one of the most imposing fighters ever built. The first "Flanker-A" prototype flew on 20 may 1977 and entered service as the "Flanker-B" in 1984.The development of the Su-27 fighter was completed in the early 1980s, and the aircraft subsequently set mroe than 40 world records of altitudeand take-off speeds. It was a forerunner of an entire family of fighter aircraft, including the Su-27UB training variant, the Su-33 carrier-based fighter, the Su-37 multi-mission aircraftand the su-32FN two-seat spezialized version. The Su-27UB is a two-seated training version of the Su-27 wich first flew in march 1985. The aircraft is equipped to operate autonomously in combat over hostile territory, as an escort to deep-penetration strike aircraft, and in the supression of enemy airfields. The Flanker also provides general air defence on cooperation with ground and airborne control stations. The su-27 is in service with Russia, Ukraine, Belraus, kazakhsta and Vietnam, and is built udner license in China, where it is designated the F-11. A variant, the Su-20MK, has also been sold to india where licensed loca production began in 2000. There is no doubt that the Flanker is one of the most potent warplanes in service.

And if we are comparing the spefications, it is clear that the enignes of the Su-27 are without a match, same with speed and ceiling.


Thrust: 12.500 kg (in each egnine)
Maximum Speed: 2500 km/h
Ceiling: 18500 m


Thrust: 15.909 kg (in each engine)
Maximum Speed: 1600-1800km/h
Ceiling: 16600 m


Thrust:14.545 kg (in each engine)
Maximum speed: 2082 km/h

EDIT: Correction about Su-27 thrust

Su-37 "Super Flanker" Technical Data.
Su-37 Album
Yet another derivative of the Su-27 family is the Su-37. The Su-37 design incorporates the canards and digital fly-by-wire control system of the Su-35 but also adds axisymmetric steerable nozzles to provide thrust vectoring capability.
The resulting design achieves a level of super-maneuverabilty unmatched by any contemporary fighter. A test pilot reported that the controls are so effective that the aircraft can recover from spins and stalls at almost any altitude. Although the Russian Air Force has shown great interest in the remarkable abilities of the Su-37, it is somewhat doubtful that any will be acquired due to the nation's financial difficulties.
The aircraft may see more success in the export market, which Sukhoi is actively pursuing.
