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-30MK, a further improvement over the twin-seat Su-30 aircraft, can perform air-to-surface missions employing precision-guided weapons while retaining the advanced air-to-air features introduced in the early Su-30s. The Su-30MK model is intended as the standard configuration for Su-30 aircraft. The Su-30MK advanced multi-role fighter was designed for the export market achieving a big success. About 50 Su-30Ks (18) and Su-30MKs (32) were purchased by India with the final aircraft delivered in December 2004. The Su-30MK aircraft were lately converted into Su-30MKI. India also achieved an agreement on 140 Su-30MKIs to be produced locally by the HAL Corporation. In addition, Indonesia ordered two Su-30MKs.
