Hello from St Petersburg, Russia. I was touring the Peter-Paul Cathedral and I heard and saw plane from the air force coming, so i snapped a few photos. I would like help of what type of aircraft they were.
Same but different view.
Thank you very much for helping, if this is not relevant please close, Have a nice day!
1st photo: Looks like a TU-95 «Bear»
Edit: After a closer look at the tail I’ll say it’s a TU-142MZ «Bear-F Mod 4» Used for long range maritime patrol.
2nd/3rd photos: Looks like SU-33 Flanker D
1st photo: Tu-95
Edit: @Andre_S is correct, it is the TU-142MZ
2nd and 3rd photo: SU-27 or SU-35
Edit 2: SU-33
Do some versions of the SU-27 have small forewings?
I dont think so. I know the SU-33 has canards and in the photo the jet doesn’t have canards so that’s why I believe its an SU-27 or SU-35.
If you take a closer look at the second photo you will see canards.
Oh yea… Didn’t see that. Thx for correcting me
I am trained in military aircraft identification. But that was around 20 years ago so I’m a bit rusty.
Thank You Very Much for helping me. Mods please close!
