Sukhoi Su-27S Flanker-B Version 3.2
For SimplePlanes

The Su-27 Flanker was the Soviet Union’s answer to the American F-15 Eagle. Despite its large size, the Su-27 is highly agile due to its blended wing and fuselage, powerful Saturn AL-31F engines, and fly-by-wire control system. Notably, the Su-27’s high angle of attack capabilities allows it to perform the Pugachev’s Cobra, also known as the dynamic deceleration. On its ten hardpoints, the Su-27 can carry the high off-boresight R-73 Archer and the long range R-27ER/ET Alamo C/D. The Su-27S Flanker-B is the initial Soviet production variant, but since its inception, there have been several Su-27 derivatives with various roles and for various countries.

Su-27’s were operated by the Soviet Union and modernized variants are still in service with the Russian Air Force. Ukraine, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan, also still operate the Su-27, as well as Vietnam, Indonesia, and China. Read more...

Author’s Notes

  • Controls included in craft instructions.
  • Takeoff speeds are roughly the same loaded or not. You can rotate earlier, but using the settings in the craft instructions will help prevent a tailstrike.
  • To perform a Pugachev’s Cobra, slow to 500-650 km/h and set your throttle to 0%. Then, disable the FBW (AG3) and pull up. When you reach 90 degrees AOA, stop pulling up and reenable the FBW. As the plane falls back into level flight, throttle back up.

    @TwoTurboMan I thought about doing that, but since it would require a lot of upkeep, I wouldn't want to do it if not a lot of people were interested. I might make a forum post and see what people think.

    @ReinMcdeer you should post a full weapons pack for different countries, and sort them in Air to Air, and Air to Ground. I think your weapons are the most realistic, and therefore should get their own spot on the roster.

    @Th3Missil3 Yeah, it does, I gave it a bit more drag so it should be a bit slower
    That being said though, the full loadout doesn't affect the speed as much as the other aircraft since there's no drop tanks, just missiles.

    Idk why but this accelerates much faster than your other aircrafts, even with a full loadout.

    @Callsign4raptor missiles are great, especially the archer
    what sucks are the flares, good offensively not that good defensively

    Your Su-27 is simply divine, but I had to tweak the missiles a little

    Next, you can make the F-18F and E variants, but can this be the variant? For air-to-air missions, it is equipped with spare fuel tanks on the wings, so there is a sensation when flying, unlike before, just carrying missiles without spare fuel tanks on the wings.
    So can the F-18F and E in the air-to-air variant be given a fuel tank too, please? :(

    @Callsign4raptor
    Either you have no idea what you're talking about or you're just not flying this fighter right.
    Either way, you're wrong.

    @ReinMcDeer I love this thing, it's so pretty, come to think of it, Russian planes are just pretty in general aren't they... I hope you can take a second to consider a request of mine, it's alright if not.

    @ReinMcDeer You can blame FlightArms for having a role in those Flankers lugging Sidewinders around

    @ShinyGemsBro Glad you like it!
    I know it's their reserve fighter, but I am surprised that squadron still uses Su-27's, especially since its alongside Raptors. Granted, since that's carrying AIM-9X's, I'm assuming that isn't a regular Soviet Su-27S

    This flies 10x better than it's original version. It's overall flight characteristics are just near perfect. Low speed maneuverability, supermaneuverability, it's no doubt a Flanker, alright.


    And you know I had to.

    @ThatKindaWeeb With nukes, it's a bit of a guessing game. The B43 on my F-104 has explosionScale=70, but do recognize that SP explosionScale scales linearly whereas real life TNT equivalent does not. I'd probably go no bigger than 150 or 200.
