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 Su-27 entered service with the Soviet Air Force in 1984. About 400-500 Su-27s and Su-27UBs were delivered to the Soviet Air Force through early 1990s. China (80) and Vietnam (24) are the sole export customers for this aircraft. The Su-27SK fighters sold to China by Russia are known as the J-11 within the People's Liberation Army. China and Russia agreed up to 200 Su-27 and two-seat Su-27UBs to be produced in China.

The Su-27SM and Su-27SKM are upgraded variants of the Su-27 Flanker air superiority fighter aircraft. Su-27SKM is being offered to the export market while the Su-27SM are being produced for the Russian Air Force under a modernization program intended to extend the service life of existing Su-27s. In addition to air superiority, Su-27SKM/SM feature air-to-ground capability using guided and unguided armament operating within a combat group or alone at all-weather conditions. The Su-27SM3 is another upgraded variant introduced to the Russian Air Force in late 2011.
