Yes, I compiled several official promotional videos realised on the Net by "Sukhoi" corporation and quckly distributed everywhere by aviation enthusiast as singles.They all agree, amateurs and proffesionals alike, that despite the lack of sophisticated electronics in the classic "Su-27", it is a vеry formidable, fear-in-the-bones instilling adversary over sky in comparation with F-15, F-16 and even Eurofighter, while its upgraded variants, branded under new designations, score even better-too bad that they never made it into the Russian Air Force.

The Russian AF is upgrading to the SU-27SM standard, which is comparable to the SU-30 MK.....so far 1 x fighter regiment is equipped with the new Flanker version and more will come into service this year
Also the much awaited AL-31F engines will soon be available....
The state aircraft-test center and MMBPE “Salut” will present on Moscow Aero-Space Saloon-2007 a breadboard model of the engine AL-31F with an automatic control system with a jet nozzle and an operated draft vector The state aircraft-test center (air base Ahtubinsk) and FSUE “MMBPE “Salut” will present on Moscow aero-space saloon-2007 a breadboard model of engine AL-31F (42 series) with an automatic control system with a jet nozzle and an operated draft vector.
Today it is the engine AL-31FM1 with draft 13, 5 t and the increased resource which passed all cycle of the state tests and in December, 2006 it is accepted on arms of the Air Forces of the Russian Federation. On FSUE “MMBPE “Salut” a batch production of the given updating is begun.
The following updating of АL-31F-М2 with draft 14t is in a stage of bench tests.
Updating of АL-31F-М3 with draft 15t possesses essentially new constructive and technological decisions. First of all it is a compressor of low pressure which actually being a prototype of the compressor of the engine of the fifth generation, allows to reduce labour input of manufacturing of the engine, to lower its weight, to increase a resource and reliability. On the compressor of a high pressure design works are spent, works on functional working off of the automatic control system 235 (type FADEC) are lead. For today 3 complete sets of units of automatic control system for АL-31F-М3 are made. This automatic control system is a prototype of the automatic control system of the perspective engine for PAC FA.
The chamber of combustion and the vectorable nozzle concern also to essentially new elements of АL-31F-М3.
As a result АL-31FM3 on the parameters comes nearer to requirements of the engine of 5-th generation and it can be considered as the first prototype-demonstrator of the engine of the fifth generation and simultaneously to be used for retooling of significant park of fighters "Su-27/Su-30" for prolongation of their resource and substantial improvement of performance characteristics.
All works are spent due to the enterprise without attraction of budgetary funds.

One day the 'rain' will come and wash all the scum off the streets
The Su-27SM is close in its combat capabilities to the PAK FA (future 5th generation fighter), but it will not reach them, because during these years the margins on the fifth generation airplane will multiply.
. But it, this upgraded Su-27SM, meets all the requirements of a new airplane and even, if you will excuse me, spits further than the Su-30MKK and Su-30MKI taken together. Because we put into it all the best of them. And this is the optimal variant of an upgrade.

JANE'S DEFENCE WEEKLY - JANUARY 21, 2004
The Su-27SM features:
- a strengthened fuselage - wing and landing gear to allow for a higher weapon load. - the aircraft has received "a totally new avionics set" using systems from the Su-30MKK/MKI export models.
The Su-27SM is nearly a fifth-generation aircraft. It needs a lower signature characteristic and new weapons to be one," Gen Mikhailov said.
The RUAF is currently handing over the next batch of 20 Su-27s to Sukhoi for upgrade, with the intention of having one regiment converted to the Su-27SM this year.

reznik: @proto-Orchid: very true. What's worse, is that the system is designed specifically to keep those people dormant in their echo chambers. Nothing new to learn for them there, just stupid cat videos and such. Sad.

Proto-Orchid: Its the substitute for going out, meeting and spending your time with friends in real life. Its just part of the story. When I was younger I remember people were meeting to play team sports, but today you see completely autistic people jogging with iPhone.
Oct 14, 2018 18:18:38 GMT -5
Proto-Orchid: Then they come back home, put pictures on Instagram or Facebook to show off how they spent their time jogging, and as mental satisfaction they get few likes or hearts, or whatever social medias have today, which is a measure of how good their life is. Sick
