The Sukhoi Su-27 heavy air superiority fighter - codenamed 'Flanker' by NATO - was designed during the Cold War as a Soviet counter to potential Western opponents such as the US Air Force's F-15 Eagle. It first flew in 1977. Service entry began during 1985, and when the 'Flanker' started appearing at Western air displays in the hands of Sukhoi test pilots, starting at Paris in 1989, it astounded spectators with its manoeuvrability.

In the post-Soviet era, the original Su-27 series has continued to equip the Russian armed forces, and carried on serving with the Ukrainian Air Force as well as other former Soviet states and several export customers. The design has continued to be developed for both Russia and overseas markets, some of the latest derivatives incorporating thrust vectoring.

Sukhoi truly created a masterpiece. The entire series of 27s-30-33-35s are as effective as they are beautiful. As an American in Southern California, I can only hope one day to see one in person.

Amazing fighter jet from Russia. I would like to know how do the Ukrainian air forces to maintain, update and renovate their sukhoi planes, knowing the conflictual relationships between the two countries.

Fantastic looking piece of hard ware flies well by the looks of it but I don't think it would be a match for the eagle, still a good video though Elwyn

The flanker always looks so slow and lazy compared to the US fighters. But I guess that’s how maneuverable it is that it doesn’t need to be doing high speeds to pull off these moves.
