Further development of the Su-27. The first prototype built from
an Su-30 tandem
two-seat trainer reconfigured with a side-by-side seated cockpit made its
maiden flight on April 13, 1990. The
second prototype, completely built from the ground up, took to the air
on December 18, 1993.
The most obvious modification of the new strike "Flanker" is the widened,
flatter forward fuselage. In the nose is a new multi-mode phased-array
radar with terrain-following and terrain-avoidance for low-level attack.
In the larger rear tail-boom is a defensive rearward radar that
monitors enemy fighter activity behind the aircraft, and as needed, direct
missiles at the targets.

Ace Combat Zero for PS2 has this plane. It looks pretty tight and controls ok too.

Likley the closest anyone will come to putting something similar to the TSR.2 into real service. I don't count the F-111 (deathtrap and over-priced) or the Su-24 (bandwagon swingwings).

like the F-111 and F-117. There was a TV show called 10 Best. The 10th best fighter was F-117. The 10th best strike aircraft was the F-15C. Confusing.

NATO reporting name is 'Fullback' which is odd as this aircraft is essentially a bomber although the Su-24 Fencer and Su-25 Frogfoot have also been named with fighter designations.
|Karl, 25.02.2009 03:39|
The NATO code name for this plane is "Platypus" after it"s nose.
