While the region was seen the deployment and manufacture of hundreds of
Flankers since the early 1990s, all of these have been incremental
developments of the baseline Su-27S and Su-27UB tandem seat airframes.
Since the late 1980s the Sukhoi bureau has been developing a family of
derivative airframes, which utilise side by side seating. With the now
increasing likelihood of regional buys of these aircraft, this analysis
will explore the features, capabilities and growth
potential of these Flanker derivatives.

The Su-27IB and
Fullback Development

During the latter years of the Cold War Soviet Frontal
Aviation units
employed a mixed fleet of battlefield interdiction and theatre strike
aircraft. The most potent of these was the Sukhoi Su-24 Fencer,
conceptually similar to a smaller F-111, supplemented by the even
smaller Su-17 Fitter, a variable geometry derivative of the Su-7
Fitters, and the MiG-23BM and MiG-27, both derivatives of the variable
geometry MiG-23 interceptor.

Soviet doctrine during that period was being seriously
challenged by
large numbers of US and NATO teen series fighters, especially the F-15
and F-16. While Frontal Aviation MiG-29 and Su-27S fighters were to win
the air battle, allowing the less agile Su-24, Su-17, MiG-23BM and
MiG-27 to survive and attack their targets, it was evident to Soviet
planners that replacements for these strike aircraft would need to be
capable of surviving close contact with the F-16 and especially the

The Sukhoi bureau was intimately familiar with the problem to
be solved, as designers of the earlier Su-7, and later Su-17/22 and
Su-24, they had first hand exposure to the often conflicting design
requirements of these roles.

Early Sukhoi thinking concentrated on adaptations of the
Su-27UB tandem seat trainer, a model since then implemented in the
F-15E-like Su-30MK series exported to China and India. Frontal Aviation
thinking was however that the crew station approach used in the Su-24
worked better for the high workload and potentially long endurance
strike roles. Conceptual design of the Su-27IB as an Su-24 replacement
began in 1983.

Sukhoi Su-24 Fencer A
2011, Jeroen Oude Wolbers).

The Su-27IB (Istrebityel Bombardirovshchik - Fighter Bomber)
concept solidified during this period, with a much enlarged
side-by-side cockpit area more akin to a flight deck in a larger
bomber, in a substantially enlarged and reshaped forward fuselage.
Specific aims of the new design were to provide better ergonomics for
long range / long endurance / high workload profiles, better sanitary
conditions for the crew, facilities for the crew to eat meals on long
duration profiles, and saving the cost of duplicated cockpit displays
and instrumentation. The flight deck was to be fully pressurised,
obviating the need for the crew to wear masks through the whole flight.
The whole flight deck was surrounded by a welded titanium tub to
protect the crew from ground fire.

Crew access was via a ladder in the nosewheel well, the dual
nosewheel being relocated forward and retracting aft, opposite to
production Su-27s. The crew sat on K-36DM zero-zero seats. The much
enlarged chined and blended forward fuselage was attached to what was
essentially a modified Su-27UB dual trainer airframe, with the
production main undercarriage, wing and aft fuselage sting. The ventral
stabiliser surfaces were removed.

Designed as a deep strike fighter the T-10V-1 prototype
included Su-35 canards for low altitude ride improvement and load
alleviation, the Su-35 wing and revised fixed inlets devoid of the FOD
suppression hardware used on the Su-27S and UB, and limiting supersonic
dash speed to around Mach 1.6. The Su-27 stabilators and tails were
retained. Internally the centre-section was strengthened to accommodate
a 45 tonne maximum gross weight, increased over the baseline 28 tonne
Su-27S. Internal volume was increased by about 30% over the Su-27.

Other design features were to include a phased array multimode
attack radar, internal forward looking IRST/TV/laser targeting system,
external podded FLIR/laser targeting system, aft fire control and tail
warning radar, and internal defensive jammers. Development was
authorised in 1986 with the baseline configuration set in 1987.
Leninetz, designers of the Backfire's Down Beat and Bear's Clam Pipe
attack radars, and the Foxhound's Zaslon phased array, were contracted
to develop the radar, with Ural and Geofyzika contracted to develop the
electro-optical systems.

The Su-27IB was to be fitted with a heavily integrated digital
weapon system, using glass cockpit components, thus emulating the
first seen in the US with the digital F-111D two decades earlier.

Weapons planned included the Kh-29 and S-25LD Maverick
analogues, the
KAB-500Kr electro-optically precision guided bomb, the KAB-500L laser
guided bomb, and the electro-optical/datalink guided KAB-1500TK GBU-15
analogue. Three of the Kh-59 stand-off weapons, analogous to the
AGM-142, were to be carried, or up to six Kh-31 and Kh-35 Kharpunski
anti-shipping missiles. For defence suppression, up to six Kh-31R
anti-radiation missiles were to be carried. Defensive weapons were to
include the GSh-301 30 mm gun, up to eight R-73 Archer WVR AAMs and up
to six R-27 BVR AAMs. A total payload of up to 8 tonnes of dumb bombs
were to be lifted, including payload of 36 x FAB-250 500 lb bombs. Six
B-8M1 rocket pods for up to 120 S-8 rockets, or six B-13L pods for up
to 30 S-13 rockets could be carried for close air support tasks.

The first prototype T-10V-1 flew in April, 1990, and within
months flew aerial refuelling trials and simulated carrier landing
approaches on the Tbilisi, in the Black Sea. The aircraft was first
publicly exhibited in 1992.

The second prototype, the T-10V-2 was built in 1993, adopting
the Su-35 wing with additional stations, enlarged internal fuel tanks,
enlarged spine and lengthened tail stinger, the production reinforced
centre section design, and the representative production configuration
of the tandem dual wheel main undercarriage. The first Low Rate Initial
Production airframe, the T-10V5 was flown in early 1994 and renamed the
Su-34, clearly a play on the aircraft's Frontal Aviation predecessor,
the Su-24 Fencer.

This prototype was painted in an unusual blue/green
labelled the 'Su-32FN' and presented at the 1995 Paris airshow as a
maritime patrol and strike fighter. Two more SU-34s were built in 1996
and 1997, and presented at the Paris airshow in 1997, again as the
'Su-32FN'. Russian sources claim this nomenclature was further changed
with a new designation of 'Su-32MF', presumably standing for
Frontoviy (Multirole Tactical).

While the Su-32FN and Su-32MF/34 are essentially identical
T-10V-5 derivative airframes, there are important differences in their
intended roles and avionics, and both will be discussed separately.

In comparing the basic Su-32/34 airframe against Western
the design with 12.1 tonnes (26.7 klb) of internal fuel sits in between
the Boeing F-15E and F-111 in combat radius and weapon payload
capabilities. It will provide at lower gross weights lower agility than
the F-15E, but higher agility than the F-111. Its top end supersonic
performance is inferior to both US types. Like both US types, the
aircraft is intended to perform low altitude penetration using terrain
following radar (TFR) functions. Unlike the F-15E with a podded LANTIRN
TFR and the F-111 with a dedicated redundant APQ-171 TFR, the Su-32/34
uses a phased array which interleaves TFR and other modes, a concept
used previously only the in B-1B's APQ-164 phased array.

Fullback Strike Fighter

The basic configuration of the intended production
aircraft is a multirole deep strike fighter, intended to perform the
battlefield interdiction, close air support and deep strike roles now
performed by the Su-24 in Russia, the F-15E in the US and the F-111 in
Australia. In addition the Russians envisage a long endurance / range
air combat role for the aircraft, with the intent to use it to attack
ISR platforms with stand off missiles; in this respect its tasking
reflects early US Air Force thinking on the F-111 series.

The manufacturer's website states that the Su-34 is designed
to defeat the F-15, F/A-18 and Eurofighter Typhoon in air combat

EU reports claim that production Su-32MF/34 will be fitted
with the
newer AL-41F engines, rated at 35 klb wet/SL/static thrust, rather than
the AL-35F used in the demonstrators. However, Low Rate Initial
Production (LRIP) aircraft are being delivered with late models of the
Al-31F engine, the Al-21MF. The aircraft has an aerial
refuelling probe, plumbing for three drop tanks, and can carry the
Sakhalin UPAZ-1A
aerial refuelling pod performing as a buddy tanker.

The primary aircraft sensor is the large Leninets B-004
multimode phased array radar, which uses like all current Russian
designs passive phase shifter technology with a Travelling Wave Tube
transmitter. The radar is claimed to be highly modular with redundant
components, reflecting the APQ-164 model to achieve very high mission
reliability on long endurance sorties. The X-band design is claimed to
achieve a 15 kW peak power rating, although production radars could see
the use of higher rating TWT transmitters since developed for the NIIP
BARS series.

The radar is claimed to provide a range of 200 to 250 km (108
to 135
NMI) against large surface targets, ground mapping capability to 150 km
(81 NMI), Doppler beam sharpened ground mapping to 75 km (40 NMI) and
GMTI target tracking to 30 km (16 NMI), the latter similar to
contemporary Western attack radars like the APG-76. Detection
performance against fighter sized aerial targets is claimed to be 90 km
(48.6 NMI), comparable to the N-001 series. A Synthetic Aperture Radar
high resolution groundmapping mode was planned, and given its existence
in the evolved N-001/N-011M series, does not present difficulties. The
radar provides a low altitude terrain avoidance mode, and automatic
terrain following capability.

An inertial navigation system supplemented by a GNSS receiver
(Glonass and likely GPS C/A) is employed.

The planned internal electro-optical suite appears to have
vanished in more recent reports, with claims that the Sapsan-E thermal
imaging and laser targeting pod will be carried externally, probably on
the No 9 ventral inlet station.

Development Su-32/34 are fitted with a large circular
dielectric panel on the upper fuselage, which can only be a satellite
communications antenna given its size and placement. No equipment type
has not been disclosed.

A didgital datalink is fitted but no disclosures have been
made on the type as yet - for situational awareness and air-air combat
the latest TKS-2
standard on the Su-30/35 is the most likely type fitted.

The cockpit uses a single dual combiner Head Up Display, and
AMLCD displays. The widely photographed prototype cockpits are unlikely
to represent a production configuration, given the layout of the more
recent Su-30MK and Su-27SKM/SKU glass cockpits. The crew sit on K36DM
ejection seats.

Defensive systems include a Radar Warning Receiver, most
the current variant of the SPO-32 / L150 Pastel digital receiver
carried by the Su-27/30. The podded wingtip mounted KNIRTI SPS-171 /
L005S Sorbtsiya-S H/I band defensive jammer has been reported, this
system being an evolution of a jammer developed for the Backfire C. The
Sorbtsiya-S, unlike most Western jamming pods, is designed to operate
pairs and uses forward and aft looking steerable wideband phased arrays
maximise jamming effect. It is worth observing that the Sorbtsiya is
clearly built to provide cross-eye jamming modes against monopulse
threats, and the wideband mainlobe steering capability provided by the
phased array permits best possible utilisation of available jamming
power. A graded dielectric lens is employed (refer image below).

SPS-171 /
L005S Sorbtsiya-S H/I band ECM pods are paired on the aircraft wingtips.

and L-136 MAK-F (below) infrared threat warning
sensors (images © Miroslav Gyűrösi).

It is likely that a later generation variant
of the Azovsky MAK series IR/UV Missile Approach Warning System will be
used, such as the L-136 MAK-UFM - the L-082 MAK-UL was carried by the
Su-24M in the same role. The APP-50 countermeasures dispenser common to
the Su-27/30 is likely to be used. Like some Su-30/35 configurations,
the aircraft is to carry the Phazotron/Rassvet N012 tail warning radar,
in the after 'stinger'.

For air combat the aircraft will be equipped to carry the same
R-27 (AA-10 Alamo), R-73 (AA-11 Archer), and R-77 (AA-12 Adder) AAMs
now carried by the Su-27/30. This will provide a credible BVR
capability against closing fighters, and allows the Su-32MF/34 to be
retasked as an air defence interceptor. The radar's GMTI capability is
likely to be exploited for cruise missile defence tasks.

Like the Su-24 Fencer, the Su-32MF/34 is expected to be used
for derivative roles. For tactical reconnaissance, the likely candidate
pod is the recently revealed M400 centreline pod. It is equipped with a
Raduga multi-band) IR imaging system, AP-403 and AP-404 panoramic
cameras, and optional modules with the M402 Pika SLAR radar and
AK-108FM oblique camera.

There has been ongoing
about the development of a dedicated electronic attack / support jammer
variant of the Fullback, filling the niche occupied by the EA-6B
Prowler, EA-18G Growler and EF-111A Raven. The Fullback has the size to
perform this role better than both the EA-6B and EA-18G, but would not
compete with the EF-111A (Author).

Of more interest in the longer term is the proposed support
jamming variant, discussed in the Indian and Russian trade press. This
aircraft is a Russian analogue to the EF-111A or EF-18G Growler,
designed as a fast support jammer for escort and standoff jamming. The
podded L175V / KS418 high power jammer is being developed for this
purpose, it being an analogue to the US ALQ-99 jamming pods on the
EA-6B and EF-18G. The KS418 is believed to be related closely to the
TsNIRTI MSP-418K support jamming pod, claimed to be designed around a
DRFM (Digital RF Memory) jamming techniques generator.

Air to ground weapon payloads for the Su-32MF/34 will include
all of the stores currently cleared on the Su-35, Su-30MK and Su-27SKM.
Beyond the weapons envisaged during the early development of the
aircraft, the Kh-65 cruise missile has been discussed in EU reports -
three could be carried. It is likely the satellite aided inertially
guided KAB-500/1500S-E will be included in any production
configuration. Russian reports claim the aircraft was trialled
in Chechnya.

In perspective, the Su-32MF/34 will provide an incrementally
better penetration and strike capability over the top tier production
Su-30MKI and Su-30MKK/MK2 configurations, by virtue of more internal
fuel, higher gross weights, strike optimised avionics, terrain
following capability, better crew
comfort and larger weapons payloads. The Su-32MF/34 will with three
3,000 litre external drop tanks match the radius performance of the
F-111, but with less disposable weapon payload. In the long term the
Su-32MF/34 is important since it provides for a non-US sourced
persistent battlefield strike fighter with the large weapon payload and
sensor package to be effective. Datalinking to remote ISR platforms
with SAR/GMTI is only a matter of time, in technology terms.

The Su-34 Fullback entered LRIP last year and the first two
production aircraft were delivered to the Russian Air Force on the 15th
December, 2006. Russian sources claim a requirement for 58 aircraft by
2015, primarily to replace older Su-24 Fencers.

strike radar ever designed for a Russian combat aircraft. Unlike the
N011M/BARS, the B004 is an optimised bomber radar, similar in many
capabilities to the APQ-164 in the B-1B, and sharing the same
generation of antenna technology. This image shows a prototype radar,

The Su-32FN
Fullback Maritime Patrol/Strike Fighter

The Su-32FN is a unique maritime patrol, Anti-Submarine
and maritime strike derivative of the T-10V design, designed to perform
littoral and coastal maritime roles. The inclusion of an ASW capability
in this aircraft created much debate during the 1990s, as this role in
the West has traditionally fallen on specialised airliner derived
airframes. The Soviet LRMP fleet comprised variants of the Tu-142M Bear
F and Il-38 May, derived from the Il-18 Coot airliner.

To understand the reasoning behind an ASW equipped strike
fighter it is necessary to explore latter Cold War Soviet maritime
doctrine, and the concurrent US Navy maritime strategy. During this
period the Soviets envisaged their ballistic missile armed SSBN fleet
operating in bastions near to Murmansk/Polyarnyy and Vladivostok, and
other fleet elements defending the Baltic and Black Sea ports. In the
event of a full scale war with the West, the bastions, Baltic and Black
Sea would be the hunting ground for US Navy and Royal Navy SSNs, while
the airspace would be actively contested by F-14s from US CVBGs and
land based US Air Force F-15 sweeps. This is an environment which is
not conducive to the longevity of LRMP turboprops like the Bear and
May. This presented the Soviets with genuine issues in performing
maritime patrol and ASW tasks and a highly survivable airframe was a
must. As the bastions and approaches to Baltic and Black Sea ports were
close to existing land bases, a large strike fighter could provide
credible on station endurance, where the station was perhaps 30 minutes
of flying time from a runway. While a four hour on station endurance
may be modest compared to a turboprop LRMP airframe, proximity to
relief aircraft waiting to launch still makes this a viable concept.

The result of these pressures was the Su-32FN, devised for the
AV-MF to absorb the roles of the AV-MF Su-24 Fencer regiments, and
include the 'new' ASW role. It is essentially a supersonic, highly
survivable land based equivalent to the Lockheed S-3 Viking.

The principal deviation from the baseline Su-32MF/34 was to be
the addition of the 'Morskaya Zmyeya' (Sea Snake) maritime patrol
avionic suite, since then to be fitted in the reported to be collapsed
Indian Navy Bear F avionic upgrade, and a suite of maritime strike and
ASW weapons. The suite is claimed to include an Electronic Support
Measures receiver and Magnetic Anomaly Detector.

For 'classical' maritime strike roles, the Su-32FN is to be
armed with up to six Kh-31A or Kh-31R ASMs, six Kh-35U ASMs, up to
three Kh-59M/D stand-off missiles, the potent supersonic Kh-41 Moskit
(Sunburn) and 3M-54 Alfa supersonic ASMs.

Photographs indicate that the centreline adaptor for the
developed for the Su-33, would be reused, although one mid 1990s report
claimed carriage of two rounds on wing stations. Original Alfa missile
mockups were also photographed on the inboard wing stations, this
missile has since evolved into the 3M-54/3M-14E (SS-N-27) Club series.

The more interesting stores are lightweight ASW torpedoes,
carried in pairs on stations 8 and 9, for a total of 4 rounds, and a
conformal centreline pod which can be loaded with up to 72 sonobuoys of
various types. An ASW patrol weapons mix would probably involve a mix
of these stores, drop tanks and depth charges.

Unlike the conventional Su-34 strike variants, the Su-32FN has
yet to enter production.

Su-32FN vs
the Region

The funding shortfalls suffered by the Russian Air Force and
Naval Air
Arm have seen the plan to replace the 400+ Su-24 Fencer inventory, and
remaining examples of the Su-17/22 and MiG-27 postponed repeatedly.
Sukhoi and Rosoboronexport have understandably been actively marketing
the aircraft for export - a export production run would see the
non-recurring expenses in tooling up and completing avionics
integration absorbed by an export client, reducing the cost to the
Russian Air Force and other export clients.

While there has been some speculation about the Indian Air
Force signing up, it has a big enough challenge in fielding its 180
aircraft run of Su-30MKIs, an aircraft which provides a large fraction
of the Su-32MF/34's capabilities.

The more probable client in the forseeable future is China.
Russian media reports indicate that a cabinet level PRC delegation
visited the NAPO plant in Novosibirsk to inspect the Fullback
production line. Unlike PLA-AF Badgers which have the option of
launching long range land attack cruise missiles from outside the
footprint of interceptor and SAM defences, the same is not true for
PLA-AF and PLA-N maritime strike operations against surface warships,
especially in the
Taiwan Straits and South China Sea. In a time of confrontation, this
would be airspace contested by RoCAF fighters and likely US Navy
F/A-18s, yet the Badgers must close to a radar line of sight with
their targets before they can launch their missiles. Anti-submarine
patrol sorties also present a genuine challenge, with a real strategic
need for the PLA-N due to Taiwan's SSK fleet planning and the prospect
of US Navy SSNs blockading Chinese ports. The PRC faces a strategic
problem not unlike the AV-MF did in defending its maritime bastions -
turboprop LRMP aircraft stand little chance of surviving to perform
their role.

We should not be surprised if the PLA-N air arm does order the
Su-34, the Su-32FN, or some mix or hybrid of these types. The
aircraft is a much better fit for the role than the current batch of
several dozen Su-30MK2, and can absorb the littoral maritime patrol/ASW
role. This would permit remaining PLA-N H-6D Badgers to be converted
into tankers to support the Sukhois.

The regional deployment of production Su-32/34 derivatives
will present yet another incremental step in regional capability growth
again at the expense of Australia's strategic position in the region.

Production vs
Development Fullback Configurations

Since the Fullback entered Low Rate Initial Production some further
details have emerged on the configuration of the production aircraft.
Polish analyst Piotr Butowski publishing in the German FlugRevue journal, detailed the
following configuration for the Sch-141
avionic suite

  1. Leninetz V004 PESA
    multimode radar system with nose and tail mounted apertures. The
    forward aperture provides attack radar mapping, low level penetration
    modes and conventional fighter multimode air-air functions. The tail
    aperture in the boom provides a threat warning function.
  2. Ramenskoye RPKB K-102 navigation and attack system,
    which integrates the cockpit multifunction displays, navigation systems
    and KSS-1 communications suite.
  3. KNIRTI Khibiny M
    Electronic Warfare Self Protection suite including the L175V jammer, an
    infrared MAWS system of undisclosed type, a threat warning and RF
    surveillance receiver of an unspecified type, and countermeasures
  4. Yekaterinburg UOMZ Platan electro-optical targeting
    system comprising a laser designator and television system.

Weapon payloads comprise a mix of up to
eight tonnes of stores. Defensive weapons include the R-27 Alamo, R-73
Archer and R-77 Adder series, with the PESA providing the capability to
track ten targets and concurrently engage four with BVR missile shots.
The full gamut of Russian air-ground munitions are to be supported,
with marketing material including carriage of a pair of Kh-41 Moskit /
Sunburn or three Kh-61 Yakhont / Stallion supersonic cruise missiles.

Long term planning is to see higher thrust engines,
evolution of the mission avionics, an AESA radar and future munitions

The cockpit shows the most prominent changes against the developmental
design, and now includes a full 'glass' configuration with an array of
multifunction displays for the pilot and WSO.

The ventral electro-optical
targeting system provides a limited capability and is only suitable for
medium/high level deliveries, due to its limited field of regard. It is
likely to be soon supplemented by a licence built Thales Damocles
thermal imaging and laser targeting pod. Russian sources claim that the
Russian MoD licenced the pod design, expected to be built by the Ural
Optical Mechanical Plant (UOMZ), after exposure to the design during
the integration of the pod on the Malaysian Su-30MKM Flanker H. Future
candidates for the pod, other than the Su-34, are the Su-35-1/35BM
Flanker F, the Su-27SM/SMK Flanker B+ and upgraded Su-24M2 Fencer. The
pylon installation, given hardware commonality between the SU-30MK and
Su-34, is likely to be identical for both types.

is not known whether the Su-34 will use the Shchel series helmet
mounted display, or the Thales
which has been integrated on
the MiG-29K Fulcrum.

photographed at Kubinka in September, 2009, equipped with new wingtip
mounted KNIRTI SAP-518 self-protection ECM pods, and a large centreline
KNIRTI SAP-14 “Escort Jammer” support jamming pod. The new SAP-14 is
analogous to the US ALQ-99E series pods, but employs a fundamentally
different antenna arrangement optimised to suppress emitters in the
forward and aft hemispheres of the escort jamming aircraft. The pod has
been cleared for carriage on the Su-30MK Flanker G/H airframes and the
Su-34 Fullback (T5 Studio image - click to download hi res copy).

The heavyweight high power KNIRTI SAP-14 Support Jammer
ECM pod is a
Russian analogue to the US ALQ-99E pod carried on the EA-6B Prowler and
EA-18G Growler. It was developed for Flanker family aircraft and is
carried on a large centreline pylon. To date little has been disclosed
about this design, but it has been observed on the Su-30MK Flanker G/H
and Su-34 Fullback.
