In the United States called the "best Russian fighter"

29
Soviet Su-27 and its modifications are the best fighters of the fourth generation, in service with Russia, China and India, leads Lenta.ru report opinion of American expert Sebastien Roblin.




For four decades, the Flanker jets (the name of the Su-27 according to NATO classification) were the best Russian fighters of the fourth generation, as well as the two most populated countries of the world - China and India,
writes roblin.

According to him, Su-27, created as an analogue of the American McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle (started operating in the 1976 year), has “long range, high speed, heavy armament, advanced avionics and excellent maneuverability and served as the basis for many other fighter options ".

The expert notes that “the new fighter (it began to be fully used in the 1985 year), which received spacious fuel tanks and a pair of AL-31F engines, developed a speed of more than 2 Mach numbers and had a range of about 1,5 thousands of kilometers”.

Separately, he noted the “Doppler radar HNNUMX“ Sword ”with a range of up to 001 kilometers, an infrared search and tracking system, as well as an air-to-air missile P-130, which received Su-73”.

Robin also recalled that Su-27M, Su-27, Su-30, Su-33 and Shenyang J-35 fighters were created based on the Su-11.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, impoverished Russia sold the Su-27 to China in exchange for food. Then Beijing received a license to produce its own clone Shenyang J-11,
he explained.

Subsequently, according to the expert, Flanker (in the Su-30 version) landed in India, where, in tests, “often proved to be better than fourth-generation American fighters”.

Flanker-B (Su-27M), apparently, has a slight advantage over F-15 in armament, defense and close combat,
writes roblin.

He also notes that in the last Flanker (Su-35) differences in the American and Russian military doctrines are clearly visible: “if the former relies on stealth, the latter prefers maneuverability”.

          and ??????
          Or do you want to say that the Su-34 is not T-10 times the letter C is not present?
          and the AK-74 is no longer a Kalashnikov assault rifle? otherwise he doesn’t have the letter M as in the word AKM.

      the discrepancies in the American and Russian military doctrines are clearly visible: "if the first relies on stealth, the second prefers maneuverability."

      The American doctrine is designed for the unpunished democratization of developing countries.

          And you take a little interest in the publications of expert Sebastian Roblin and you don’t have to look for anything. And so it will be clear that this
          "The National Interest".
          Here's a tip:

    According to him, the Su-27, created as an analogue of the American McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle
    Specialists are already tired ..., well, not a single gram is an analogue, but of the same class to the point of F-15

      Can be compared with the F-22. But the F-15E / SE is serious in the multi-purpose 4 ++ class and expose it. He definitely needs to be reckoned with without any if.

    Mdaa Majnumara, in my opinion, will now be left without bread. F-15E is generally the shock version of the F-15 !!! And here the Su-27 which he does not compete with the word at all. Su-30 yes, Su-34 yes, but not Su-27 and Su-35. Just comparing the nomenclature of weapons and tactics of application.
    If the Su-27 was created in commemoration of it, then the F-15C. It is not the same. Neither in practice, nor in armament. hi

      The MiG-25 is somehow more similar to the F-15, though it flew earlier (higher and faster).

      E is not a 100% clean drummer, but a multi-purpose one, like the SU-27, just because he was honed to strike functions and did not participate in air battles does not mean that he completely forgot how to aerial combat. F-15SE is still there for gaining superiority in the air, please compare, this is not a comparison of a tractor with a tank.

        I agree to half, the Su-27 can’t throw itself with high-precision, But the Su-34 can. Even Su-30 owns an affordable arsenal.
        Therefore, he wrote that the comparison is incorrect.
