Sukhoi 27/Su-27 Nato codename (Flanker)

Ive seen a mentions of this aircraft so I thought would take a shot in the dark and post it as an offical feature request. Just some background on the SU-27, this is a fourth gen fighter/interceptor produced at the time to counter the U.S. F-15. Since its orginal design the SU-27 has seen major updates in models and avionics such as flight controls and radar enhancements. Used by a variety of international air forces the Su-27 has become a backbone for many countries that include the republic of veitnam, Indonesia, Eritrea and Mongolia just to name a few. Now that we have established history lets examine specs.

This is nice one, produced in upper hundreds and exported to numerous staats.
It is also well known for a spectacular manoeuvre thePugachev Cobra.

We definitely need more fighters in Infinite Flight.
It would be nice to have the SU-27 and maybe even the MiG-29 or MiG-31. We don’t have any Russian aircraft in the sim, commercial or military.

Would be interesting to get to fly an Antonov transport or MiG fighter and see the difference vs the western counterparts.

You have my vote!

This aircraft is one of the most successful military aircraft in the history of aviation. And it would be a great addition to Infinite Flight. With its super maneuverability and aggressive look, it would be a match for Infinite Flight’s other F-22 and F-14 aircraft.
