Out of boredom, I tried experimenting with canards on my Su-30 build and it ended up turning into a new project, the Su-30SM Flanker-H (Serijnyi Modernizirovannyi, "Serial Modernized").
Being based off my original Su-30, not too much work was done, just some reshaping of the forward fuselage section and the addition of canards and thrust vectoring. The canards make the handling much more stable than the Su-30 and the thrust vectoring dramatically increases the potential for post-stall maneuverability, if you can control it.
It's quite fun to fly around and do crazy maneuvers, like this cobra takeoff.
I plan on using roughly the same loadouts as my previous Su-30 and I also plan on making a special variant.
