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 Super Sukhoi is an upgrade being planned for the Indian Air Force Su-30MKI aircraft fleet adding fifth generation features to a fourth generation combat jet. The Super Sukhoi will feature improved stealth abilities, longer range missiles and AESA radar, a supersonic cruise missile and a new avionics suite including a powerful jamming system and warners. The aircraft will be provided with semi-stealth characteristics. India and Russia were negotiating the deal for the Super Sukhoi with 194 jets to be upgraded at a cost of $8 billion in July 2016. The deal could be signed in early 2017. The first Super Sukhoi prototype will be built in Russia with modification work to be carried out in India by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).
