The Sukhoi Su-27 (Russian: Сухой Су-27; NATO reporting name: Flanker) is a twin-engine supermaneuverable fighter aircraft designed by Sukhoi. It was intended as a direct competitor for the large United States fourth-generation fighters such as the Grumman F-14 Tomcat and F-15 Eagle, with 3,530-kilometre (1,910 nmi) range, heavy aircraft ordnance, sophisticated avionics and high maneuverability. The Su-27 was designed for air superiority missions, and subsequent variants are able to perform almost all aerial warfare operations. It was designed with the Mikoyan MiG-29 as its complement.
The Su-27’s first flight was on May 20th 1977 and entered service in 1985 with the Soviet Air Forces and continues in service with the Russian Air Force. The Su-27 is also seen services with about 10 different countries around the world including the People’s Republic of China, Indonesia and the Ukraine. There are multiple variants of the original design and over 1600 of the different “Flankers” having been built.
