Deadly Sukhoi Su-30

Army and Weapons | Deadly Sukhoi Su-30 | The Sukhoi Su-30 (NATO reporting name Flanker-C) is a twin-engine, two-seat military aircraft developed by Sukhoi Aviation Corporation Russian. It is a multirole fighter for all-weather, air-air and air to ground missions deep ban.

The Su-30 started as an internal development project in the Sukhoi Su-27 Sukhoi family. The draft plan was renewed and was officially named by the Russian Ministry of Defence in 1996. Of the Flanker family, only the Su-27, Su-30, Su-34 and its Su-35 was ordered into production by the Ministry of Defence. All others, such as the Su-37, were prototypes.
The Su-30 has two different branches, manufactured by competing organizations: KnAAPO and Irkut Corporation, both under the umbrella of Sukhoi group. KnAAPO produce the Su-30MKK and Su-30MK2, designed for and sold to China and later Indonesia and Vietnam. Because of the involvement of KnAAPO's from the early stages of the development of Su-35, these are basically a two-seater version of the mid 1990's Su-35. The Chinese chose an older but lighter radar, so the canards could be omitted in exchange for increased payload. It is a special Strike Fighter is designed for long-range air-ground attack missions, similar to the American F-15E.
Irkut traditionally served the Soviet Air Defense in the early years of the Flanker development was the responsibility of the production of the Su-27UB, the two-seat trainer version of the Su-27. When India showed interest in the Su-30, Irkut gave the multirole Su-30MKI, which arise as the Su-27UB modified with avionics for fighters. Together with its ground-attack capabilities, the series adds features for air-superiority role, such as thrust vectoring-, forward canards and a long-range phase-array radar. Its derivatives are the MKM, MKA and MKV for Malaysia, Algeria and Venezuela, respectively. Russia is in talks for the mass production Sukhoi's Irkut to buy 28-40 Su-30 fighters, C.
The Su-30 is a multirole fighter. It has a two-seat cockpit with an air brake behind the canopy.
The Su-30MK is capable of creating a wide variety of combat missions at significant distances from home, in all weather conditions and radar jamming during both day and night.  This multirole aircraft is adequately equipped for the full spectrum of tactical and operational combat employment scenarios, ranging from counter-air tasks (ie, gaining air superiority, air defense, Air Patrol and escort) to the ground attack , suppression of enemy air defense the, air ban, close air support and maritime attacks. Additionally, the Su-30MK to perform ECCM and early warning functions, and exercise command and control over a group of assets conducting joint air combat missions. It has a 9 g load maneuverability.
Aerodynamic configuration of the Su-30MK is an unstable longitudinal triplane-in. To increase the effectiveness and improve maneuverability of the aircraft lift, foreplanes are installed. They are automatically directed to controlled flight at high angle of attack to insure. Foreplanes, only installed in a number of Su-30 variants like the Su-30MKI.
The integrated aerodynamic configuration combined with thrust vector control, resulting in an unprecedented maneuverability and unique features of the land and take off. Equipped with a digital fly-by-wire system, the Su-30MK is capable of some very advanced maneuvers. They include the familiar Pugachev Cobra and Bell. This can quickly strip the aircraft speed, allowing a fighter to the pursuit of excess. When performing a somersault maneuver the aircraft makes 360-degree turn in the pitch plane without any loss of altitude. In the Controlled Flat Spin maneuver the aircraft performs several full turns in the horizontal plane, with zero forward speed, virtually on the spot.
The central plane is equipped with two Saturn AL-31F afterburning low-bypass turbofan engines. Two AL-31F turbofans, each rated at 12,500 kgf (123 kN, 27,550 pounds) afterburning thrust ensures full of Mach 2 in level flight, 1350 kmh speed at low altitude and 230 m / s climb rate.

With a normal fuel reserve of 5,270 kg, the Su-30MK is capable of a 4.5-hour combat mission with a range of 3000 km. An in-flight refueling system increases the duration of the flight 10 hours with a range of 5.200 km (3.200 mi) a cruising altitude of 11-13 km. The long distance significantly increases deployment options. Missions range from long patrols, escorts and long-range interception and ground attack.
The thrust vectoring engines on a number of Su-30 variants have nozzles with turn axes positioned at 32-degree angle to each other. The differential deflection of ± 15 degrees to the engines' asymmetric nozzles can pitch / yaw thrust vectoring control. Depending on the maneuver can be synchronized nozzles deflect or deviate from the pattern of horizontal tail surfaces.

A two-crew configuration contributes significantly to better combat capabilities, due to rational distribution of workload among the crew. While the first pilot flies the aircraft, controls weapons and performs air combat maneuvering, the co-pilot employs BVR air-air and air-ground guided weapons in long range engagements, monitors tactical environment to ensure situational awareness, command and run and-control tasks in group missions
  • Radar: Either one or N001VE Phazotron N010 Zhuk-27 N011M BARS pulse Doppler or a passive electronically scanned array radar. For detecting and tracking up to 15 air targets, while simultaneously attacking four of them. The N011M BARS radar (with a resolution 20-m/65.6-ft) ensures the detection of large sea surface targets at a distance of up to 400 km (250 miles), and small size at a distance of up to 120 km ( 75 mi).
  • Other avionics include an integrated opto-electronic sensing and navigation system with a laser gyro navigation system, helmet-mounted displays, head-up display, multifunction color LCDs with image mixing capability, and a GPS (GLONASS / NAVSTAR compatible).
  • IR and laser sighting pods to detect and to small ground targets are available for installation. It is equipped with an ECCM facility intended to hostile electronic and electro-optical countermeasures to undermine.
  • The plane's automatic pilot is in all flight phases including low-altitude flight into terrain-following mode, and individual employment and collective struggle against air and ground / sea surface targets. Automatic control system connected to the navigation system route flight, target approach and landing airfield repair in the automatic mode.
