Celebrating the Russian Air Force to receive the 100th Su-35S fighter. Sukhoi’s director Alexander Pekkas said at the ceremony that since the decision to develop such a fighter in 2005, the plant has produced 100 Su-35S fighters and successfully delivered Russian troops and overseas users, regardless of The troops are still a major milestone for the factory.

Su-35S (formerly known as Su-35BM) was born out of the famous Sukhoi Design Bureau in 2003 "PAK-FA ("Future Frontline Fighter The plan, the later Su-57 transition project, is actually based on the Su-27M (the informal old name is also Su-35, which is different from the active model, collectively called "Lao Su-35"). In the meantime, a number of (applied to Su-57) fifth-generation machine technology was adopted. The picture shows the Su-27M flight test data, it can be seen that the three-wing layout is used.

This includes the replacement of two "Saturn" AL-41F1S turbofan engines (formerly known as "117S", with a maximum thrust of 142 kN). It has a thrust vector control (TVC) function that assists in braking and shortens the landing run distance, so the Su-35S eliminates the canard in the Su-27M three-wing layout and the traditional back speed reducer. In addition, after the replacement of the AL-41F1S engine, the Su-35S also has a supersonic cruise function.

The Su-35S is very spectacular when it performs a large overload flight show.

The Su-35S has 12 hanging points under the fuselage wing, which can mount a total of 8 tons of various weapons and ammunition. The maximum flying speed is 2.25 Mach. The maximum range is 4500 kilometers. The picture shows a cross-section of the Su-35S color structure.
