Russia Draws Attention to Su-35’s First Flight that Took Place 12 Years Ago 22 February, 2020

 

Russian state-owned company Rustec made a presentation about its aircraft Su-35S on its social media account.  The presentation was in Russian and stated that this aircraft has long-range air-to-air missiles, the possibility of launching missiles at supersonic speeds, super manoeuvrability and powerful electronic warfare means.

The first model of a combat vehicle was assembled in 2007 at the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aviation Plant, and already in 2011, the serial production of the Su-35S began here.

This aircraft is capable of a maximum speed of 1400 km / h at the ground and 2500 km / h at an altitude of 11 km. The flight range at low altitude exceeds 1500 km, and at large with two outboard fuel tanks - 4500 km.

The Su-35S is the first aircraft in the world that can fly “pancake” - make a 360-degree turn in a horizontal plane without loss of speed. In 2013, at the international air show in Le Bourget, the celestial manoeuvres on the Su-35S performed by Sergey Bogdan caused an unprecedented delight of the audience, who later nicknamed the UFO car.

Now about seventy of these machines are part of the Russian Armed Forces. Also, these fighters are delivered to China.
