The Sukhoi Su-34 (Russian: Сухой Су-34; NATO reporting name: Fullback) is a Russian twin-engine, twin-seat, all-weather supersonic medium-range fighter-bomber/strike aircraft. It first flew in 1990 and entered service in 2014 with the Russian Air Force.
Based on the Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker air superiority fighter, the Su-34 has an armored cockpit for side-by-side seating of its two-man crew. The Su-34 is designed primarily for tactical deployment against ground and naval targets (tactical bombing/attack/interdiction roles, including against small and mobile targets) on solo and group missions in daytime and at night, under favorable and adverse weather conditions and in a hostile environment with counter-fire and electronic Warfare (EW) counter-measures deployed, as well as for aerial reconnaissance. The Su-34 replaces the Su-24 tactical strike fighter and the Tu-22M3 long-distance bomber.
This Hobby Master model is a replica of Russian Air Force Su-34 “Red 03” based at Bassel Al-ASSad Airport, Syria in September 2015. The Russian Air Force deployed to Syria in support of the Syrian government in it’s fight against the Islamic State.
As with most Hobby Master models It features engraved panel lines, an opening canopy, a well-appointed cockpit (with instrumentation details and a removable pilot figure), full weapons complement, optional-position landing gear, authentic Russian markings, and a display stand.
Great care should be taken when handling this model. This is a great addition to your diecast aircraft collection.
