The Su-35S is a single-seat multi-role air superiority fighter jet. It’s the top Russian air-superiority fighter in service today. The Su-35S, which represents the pinnacle of fourth-generation jet fighter design, will remain so until Russia succeeds in bringing its fifth-generation Su-57 stealth fighter jet into serial production.
The Su-35S began development in 2003 under the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Production Association, a subcontractor of Sukhoi. The production started in 2009. The fighter jet is well known for supermaneuverability, which means that it engineered to perform controlled maneuvers that are impossible through regular aerodynamic mechanisms.
