Sukhoi Su-35 Super Flanker

Su35 Super Flanker

Improved 'glass cockpit' version of the Su-27, with canard foreplanes, more powerful radar, more powerful engines, and possibly thrust-vectoring nozzles, and an electronics upgrade. The Su-35 has a completely new FCS from that on the Su-27. As well as canards, it has a new, square-topped tailfin (with internal fuel tanks). It also has a new N-011 radar with a range of up to 400 km (or 200 km against ground targets) which can simultaneously track more than 15 targets, engaging six. The new EO complex gives compatibility with advanced "smart" weapons. An advanced datalink allows coordinated group operation and the tailcone houses the antenna for a rear-facing radar which will allow "over-the-shoulder" missile shots. The Su-35 will be compatible with the new 400-km Novator KS-172 AAM-L missile. Flight testing in now reportedly complete and production has been funded. The Su-35 looks a lot like the Su-33. Consideration is being given to retrofit Su-35s with thrust vector control as seen in the Su-37.
