‘Russian Knights’ Will Get Four Highly Maneuverable Fighter Jets Sukhoi-35S
MOSCOW, (BM) – The aerobatic team Russian Knights will get four highly maneuverable fighter jets Sukhoi-35S at the beginning of this month, learned BulgarianMilitary.com, according the Sukhoi company statement.
“The Russian Knights will soon get four new Sukhoi-35S planes built in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. All are serially manufactured planes. The handover ceremony will take place at the beginning of November,” the company said.
“So far the Russian Knights have flown Sukhoi-27 and Sukhoi-30 jets. Time is ripe for our Sukhoi-35,” the company quoted the chief of the manufacturer’s test flight unit Mikhail Chipizubov as saying.
Russian Knights is the world’s sole aerobatic team flying heavy fighter-jets Sukhoi-27 and Sukhoi-30SM. It was founded on April 5, 1991 on the basis of the first air squadron of the air technologies demonstration center Kubinka.
The Sukhoi-35S jet (NATO’s reporting name Flanker-E+) is a fundamentally upgraded highly maneuverable generation 4++ fighter boasting fifth generation technologies, such as a dramatically new avionics system, new passive phased array radar, and engines with plasma-assisted ignition and thrust vectoring.
