Sukhoi Su-35 comes 3rd With a NATO reporting name Flanker-E, the airplane is actually a variation of the Su-27.
Be that as it may it was The National Interest which in 2014 called the plane “the most potent fighter currently in operation with the Russian Air Force.”
The magazine conceded that the intense twin-engine warrior plane is high flying, quick and conveys a colossal payload. That, joined with its propelled suite of flight, makes the Su-35 an extremly hazardous adversary to any US fighter jet, except for the stealthy Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor.
One Air Force official with experience on the Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter told the magazine that the Su-35 could represent a genuine test for the stealthy new American plane. The F-35 was built basically as a strike fighter jet and does not have the sheer speed or height capacity of the Su-35 or F-22.
