Abstract:

The SU-27 fighter makes use of avionics equipment representing the highest current level of Soviet technology and is estimated to be comparable in its overall capabilities to third generation U.S. fighters. What is attracting peoples interest is whether or not the SU-27 is able to undertake long range interceptor missions or has been created as a medium-type fighter for loading aboard aircraft carriers.
