“Currently, the Su-35 is the best fighter. I am not afraid of this word. An extensive weapon system – both on the ground and in the air – makes it an excellent vehicle. The fighter is very maneuverable and uses a deflectable thrust vector. It is equipped with air-to-air missiles [long, medium, and short range], long-range air-to-ground missiles [against radar, stationary targets],” said the deputy commander of the aviation squadron Alexander.

During the Ukraine war, the pilot Alexander made over 800 flights. The lieutenant colonel was awarded the Order of Bravery and the Nesterov medal. It destroyed hundreds of air and ground targets.

According to him, the main task of the squadron is to destroy air defense systems, which he and his colleagues do excellently. To solve the set tasks, the combat tasks of operational-tactical aviation are performed from temporary airports.

Before flight

The weapons of the fighters are checked by specialists from the aviation complex, the missiles are checked for serviceability, then the serviceability of the missiles is checked from the cockpit with special systems, added the pilot.

To destroy the aircraft of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and destroy radar stations, and air defense systems, the crews use guided high-precision missiles of various “air-to-air” and “air-to-surface” classes. Combat sorties are conducted day and night in all weather conditions.

The super-maneuverable fighter Su-35S breaks away from the runway and climbs hundreds of meters in a few seconds. Then he lays down on a combat course. A minute later, the next car is scattered in the afterburner. The Su-35S can climb at a speed of almost 300 m/s to a maximum height of 20 km. At afterburner, its engines accelerate the plane to 2,500 km/h.
