The SU-27 Flanker was developed to give the Russians and allies an equivalent to the exceptional F-15 Eagle. The Su-27 entered full service in 1986 after a long and difficult development program. The Flanker is a potent combination of speed and agility combined with the ability to carry up to 10 air-to air missiles of various kinds. The Flanker has been continually developed and improved and serves with many air forces as well as the Russian Navy. The Su-30 has been developed from the Su-27UB and is a 2 seat multi role fighter aircraft capable of performing air to air combat and air to ground strikes. It features more advanced systems and can be fitted with thrust vectoring to increase agility in air to air combat. The Su-27UB is the 2 seat training version of the Su-27.
This kit from Hobby Boss looks very well detailed and looks to have many parts. The kits comes with plenty of ordnance and decals for 2 Russian and 1 Chinese aircraft plus a small fret of photo etch metal parts.
