Description: The AL-31 is a family of turbofan engines developed to power the Su-27/32 multi-role fighter aircraft family. They were developed by the former Soviet Union and currently are manufactured by NPO Saturn. They deliver between 27,000- and 32,000 pounds of thrust and are one of the keys for Su-27 outstanding performance. Besides growing in thrust, AL-31 have incorporated other advancements such as Thrust Vectoring Control (TVC) providing Super Maneuverability to Su-27/32 aircraft.

The NPO Saturn AL-31FP is a derivative of AL-31F adding Thrust Vectoring Control (TVC) which critically improves the aircraft maneuverability. AL-31FP engines have been provided to the Indian Air Force Su-30MKI multi-role fighter aircraft and the Su-37 Terminator demonstrator. Indian Su-30MKI aircraft also features canard foreplanes.
