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-30MK2 multi-role fighter was introduced in late 2006 with some improvements over the Su-30MK twin-seat aircraft such as super-maneuverability using AL-31FP thrust vectoring control (TVC) engines. So far the Su-30MK2 is the biggest export success of the entire Su-27 aircraft family. In 2006 Venezuela ordered 24 Su-30MK2, Su-30MK2V designation, plus six options from Russia in response to US denial to ship spare parts for the country's Air Force F-16 fleet. According to Venezuela's president, Hugo Chavez, these aircraft were meant to deter the United States from invading their country. Algeria ordered 28 Su-30MK2, Su-30MKA designation, which were delivered between 2008 and 2009. Vietnam ordered 32 Su-30MK2s in 2010-2011 (8), 2011-2012 (12) and 2014-2015 (12). Uganda ordered six Su-30MK2 in 2010. Russia ordered 4 Su-30MK2 in 2009 and 20 Su-30M2 improved aircraft in 2014. Indonesia took delivery of 15 Su-30MK2s between 2008 and 2011. China also ordered the Su-30Mk2 but they are listed under the Su-30MKK designation.
