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-31MF1, also known as the AL-31MF or AL-35F, is an improved variant with increased thrust and other modifications to better withstand operation at low altitude. AL-31MF engine was chosen to power Su-32/34 strike aircraft/light bomber which is a derivative of Su-27IB carrier-based training aircraft. This engine delivers up to 29,762-lb (formerly 28,200-lb) of thrust at takeoff using afterburner. The Su-35/37 multi-role fighter aircraft may be powered by either AL-31MF and 117S/AL-37FU engines.
