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-27K, Flanker-D or Sea Flanker NATO designations, is a derivative of the proved Su-27 fighter designed to perform air-to-air and air-to-surface missions operating from an aircraft carrier. It features an arresting hook and strengthened landing gear for carrier-based operations, canard foreplanes for improved aerodynamic performance, folding outer wings and empennage, engagement capability of surface and airborne threats through radar and IR sensor, in-flight refueling capability to achieve mission extended range, 12 external hard points, and a new electronic countermeasures system. The Su-27K, also known as the Su-33, entered service with the Russian Navy in 1994 aboard the Admiral Kuznetzov aircraft carrier. It can employ the latest air-to-air missiles as well as precision-guided air-to-surface weapons. 20-30 Su-33s have been deployed on the Zuznetsov aircraft carrier. The J-15/F-15 is a Chinese-built variant of the Su-33 shipborne aircraft.
