Description: The Su-27, Flanker-B NATO-designation, is a single-seat, twin-engine, long range, air defense fighter designed to counter the F-15 Eagle and NATO fighter aircraft. It can accommodate R-27 and R-73 missiles for short, medium and long range air-to-air engagements. In addition, a built-in GSh-301 30mm gun provides very short range air-to-air engagement capability. The Su-27 air defense fighter can also carry out escort missions in support of Tu-22M, Backfire NATO nickname, as well as other bomber/attack aircraft such as the Su-24, Fencer NATO nickname. Despite its size and weight, the Su-27 and its derivatives are the most maneuverable aircraft ever flew. The Su-27 Flanker features an integrated Infrared Search and Track (IRST) system located in front of the cockpit's canopy. The IRST system together with a helmet-mounted sight, the R-73 advanced short range air-to-air missile, and Su-27's maneuverability outperforms any existing fighter aircraft in a short range air-to-air engagement.
The two-seat Su-27UB, Flanker-C NATO designation, is a derivative of the Su-27 fighter designed for training purposes. It features the same combat capabilities than the single-seat Su-27 fighter with only slightly different performance. It has been the basis for improved models with enhanced air-to-ground capabilities of the Su-27 aircraft. The Su-27UB entered service with the Soviet Air Force in 1985. It has been sold to Vietnam and China along with single-seat Su-27 fighter aircraft for training purposes.
