Flankers: The New Generation (red Star Vol. 2)
The development of Russian military aviation did not end with the collapse of Communism. The Su-27 has seen considerable upgrading in recent years. In effect, all versions of the Su-27 Flanker from the Su-27M onwards can be regarded as a new generation of combat aircraft by Russian standards. The book describes how the Sukhoi Company strives to make the most of a good design, adapting it to today’s changing requirements by integrating new weapons and state-of-the-art avionics.
