Sukhoi SU-27 Fihter Made Russian
|Sukhoi-27.Fighter Made Russia|
In the present day an Su-27/30 must come from one of the two factories that manufacture these aircraft. The
confusion cause by the myriad of differing designations can be sorted out with the short guide below of all the
different variants that have either been built or had contracts signed for thus far. The identity of which of the
two production centers is responsible for each version is indicated in brackets.
Su-27SK/SM a single-seat version that retains the older configuration of avionics and the N001 radar. It has several new hardware and software updates that convert the formerly air-to-air only Su-27 interceptor into an aircraft that can now fire all air-to-air and air-to-ground weaponry in the Russian arsenal.
This is an upgrade of older model Su-27 fighters that is performed concurrently with a re-manufacturing fullscale overhaul of the aircraft. A number of Su-27s so far have been delivered to the Russian Air Force in this upgraded configuration. (KNAAPO)
