“SU 35 VS F 35 UNBIASED DETAILED COMPARISON:TOP 5 FACTS

Introduction:

THE SU-35 IS A DESIGNATION, FOR TWO SEPARATE, HEAVILY UPGRADED DERIVATIVES OF THE SU-27 ‘FLANKER’. THEY ARE SINGLE-SEAT, TWIN-ENGINE, SUPER-MANEUVERABLE ,MULTIROLE FIGHTERS, DESIGNED BY SUKHOI.

THE FIRST VARIANT WAS DESIGNED DURING THE 1980S, WHEN SUKHOI SOUGHT TO UPGRADE ITS HIGH-PERFORMANCE SU-27, AND WAS INITIALLY KNOWN AS THE SU-27M. LATER RE-DESIGNATED SU-35, THIS DERIVATIVE INCORPORATED AERODYNAMIC REFINEMENTS ,WITH INCREASED MANEUVERABILITY, ENHANCED AVIONICS, LONGER RANGE, AND MORE POWERFUL ENGINES.

IN 2003, SUKHOI EMBARKED ON A SECOND MODERNIZATION OF THE SU-27, TO PRODUCE WHAT THE COMPANY CALLS A 4++ GENERATION FIGHTER THAT WOULD BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN LEGACY FIGHTERS AND THE UPCOMING FIFTH-GENERATION SUKHOI PAK FA. THIS DERIVATIVE, WHILE OMITTING THE CANARDS AND AIR BRAKE, INCORPORATES A REINFORCED AIRFRAME, IMPROVED AVIONICS AND RADAR, THRUST-VECTORING ENGINES, AND A REDUCED FRONTAL RADAR SIGNATURE.

THE LOCKHEED MARTIN F-35 LIGHTNING II WHICH IS A SINGLE-SEAT, SINGLE-ENGINE, ALL-WEATHER STEALTH MULTIROLE FIGHTERS IS UNDERGOING FINAL DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING BY THE UNITED STATES.

THE FIGHTER AIRCRAFT WILL BE IN SERVICE TILL 2050.

THE PENTAGON BEGAN THE F-35 PROGRAM IN 2001 WITH AN AIM TO DEVELOP A COST EFFECTIVE REPLACEMENT FOR THE U.S. MILITARY’S F-15 FIGHTERS, F-16 AND F-18 BOMBERS AND RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFTS, AND A-10 CLOSE AIR SUPPORT WARPLANES.

APART FROM UNITED STATES, THE UNITED KINGDOM, ITALY, THE NETHERLANDS, CANADA, TURKEY, AUSTRALIA, NORWAY AND DENMARK ARE ALSO PART OF THE PROGRAM.

THE NINE MAJOR PARTNER NATIONS, INCLUDING THE U.S., PLAN TO ACQUIRE OVER 3,100 F-35S THROUGH 2035, WHICH, IF DELIVERED WILL MAKE THE F-35 ONE OF THE MOST NUMEROUS JET FIGHTERS. THE FIGHTER AIRCRAFT WILL BE IN SERVICE TILL 2050.
