Welcome to Su-27.com
Su-27.com provides news and information related to the Sukhoi Su-27 “Flanker” fighter aircraft and its derivatives. We hope that military aircraft enthusiasts and scale modelers find Su-27.com an entertaining and informative resource.
The Sukhoi Su-27 is a unique, impressive, and (arguably) beautiful aircraft. While its use in combat has been limited and minimal, most experts agree that in the hands of a well-trained pilot, it is a formidable weapons system that rivals or bests all but the newest fifth generation fighter aircraft currently operated by the air forces of the world. Sukhoi’s “Zhurovlik” is a genuine success story. Its broad acceptance in the export and licensed-built arenas, and the range of derivative aircraft that it has introduced, are evidence of this success.
