After nearly ten years of effort, Russia’s biggest and best known war plane manufacturer, Sukhoi, has revealed its first passenger jet since the fall of the Soviet Union.

Actual roll-out was on the 26th of this month.


I think they may have missed the boat on the RJ market though.

i'd like to see them with technology even up to the australian ep-3....there's no way they can compete with the current U.S. rj....

Which US RJ would that be? The Canadian one or the Brazilian one?

Ah, I see your mistake, and now see what you meant by Rivet Joint.

No, RJ stands for Regional Jet, the world leaders in this market are the Brazilian Embraer and Canadian Bombardier families, there is no US RJ. This is the market that the Sukhoi Superjet is aimed at. Nothing to do with the RC-135.

It would seem you made a quick 'US is better than Russian' post without even reading the subject matter.
