Description: Development of the Sukhoi Su-32/Su-34 began in the early 1980s as a replacement for proven Su-24 Fencer long range, attack aircraft. It features the basic design airframe of successful Su-27 Flanker air defense fighter aircraft but introducing a new nose section with a two-seat, side-by-side ergonomic cockpit inside an armored titanium capsule and state-of-the-art avionics and liquid crystal displays. The armored cabin features plates of 17mm in thickness. The Su-32, also referred to as the Su-27IB, Su-32FN, Su-32MF or Su-34, has canard foreplanes, a flattened nose and two AL-35F engines for enhanced maneuverability. The spacious and pressurized cockpit with a galley allows the two-man crew to stand up and perform some exercise to relax themselves during long endurance missions. The production Su-34 airplanes are powered by two AL-31MF1 engines rated at 29,762-lb of thrust each with afterburner.

The Russian Air Force Su-34 modernization program, also referred to as Su-34M, is aimed at making the Su-34 platform more survivable in the 2020s environment. So far, the development effort focuses on the Tarantul electronic warfare (EW) system that will render the aircraft or a group of aircraft immune to detection by hostile radars as well as improved performance avionics that could help improve flight qualities. Another item that may be integrated into the Su-34M is a laser jamming system to blind infrared guided missiles and electro-optical sighting systems. The Su-34M weapon system may include a new modification of the Kh-35 anti-ship missile (Kh-35UE) and a new generation of aero ballistic missiles. The modernization program is slated to begin before the end of 2018 with the Su-34M cleared out for operational deployment by 2020.
