Guys! Check out this beast! Thrust vectoring at its height!
The Su 30 MKI is a lethal dogfighter
Although radar of this plane so huge that it can detect its enemy before they do, But still even if it comes to Dogfight between Su -30 MKI and any other XYZ plane, then even an pilot with "Average experience" on MKI can "Lock On" to its enemy aircraft, in any direction (north,south,east,west, Up/down,right/left) and at an unimaginable low speed while using awesome maneuverability powers of this marvelous piece of metal.
And how can we forget the "Cobra" style, which will help the jet to reduce its speed drastically in a short period of Time/Distance to dodge enemy plane on its tail.
Why don't they simply dub Su 30MKI AIR INTIMIDATION FIGHTER
btw another day in office for the beast!
More apt would be, SU-30MKI - The Motherfooker!
Don't know if our mild mannered IAF would like the title!
I love this baby, ladai ki umar to aani abhi baki hi hai.
On a serious note this is a kohinoor ka hira for India. If you know what can a Hira do when it's sharp..
Just imagine 2 sqd of MKI dancing over enemy air space with COBRA maneuver.
Cobra is an airshow maneuver and has little operational value.
So is pugachev IMO
Yes, Cobra is an Airshow maneuver but you can't brush it in as "little operational value". It can be used as a surprising move to surprise the enemy at any crucial point of dogfights, and these little surprises are what matters the most in Modern DogFights, where split seconds decisions can make it or brake it.
And we should not forget that Cobra maneuver reduces the speed of MKI drastically in seconds.
F15E direct counter to su 39mki depends on 1.6 TWR (HIGHEST 2ND) and low wing loading and great wing area. For high G maneuvers. So at certain height and speech it will outperform Su30mki. Elsewhere at low altitude su 30 wins. Best normal US counter f18S/H nearly same maneuverability. Su 35 matches up ell.
So far China and pakistan can only drool.
Rammstein and crazy manoeuvers = Audio and visual delight.
