|The Sukhoi Su-35S Flanker E is a highly modified and improved derivative of the Su-27.
In the 1980s modifications were made to the Su-27 (Su-27M) also referred to as Su-35.
About 20 years later a heavily modified member of the Flanker family was produced and
given the title of Su-35S Flanker E. Considered by many to be the most capable fourth
generation fighter in the sky and equipped with many fifth generation technologies. This
probably will be the last of the Flanker family when the fifth generation Russian aircraft
The Russian Knights (Russkiye Vityazi) aerobatic team was established on April 5, 1991
using personnel and equipment from the 237th Guards Proskurov Aircraft Demonstration
Center at Kubinka. The new team was equipped with six Su-27s but in 2017 they were
replaced by the twin-seat Su-30SM wearing an updated paint scheme. On November 7,
2019 the team received four new Su-35S aircraft (50, 51, 52, 53) that would be used in
conjunction with the Su-30SMs depending on the air show. The Russian Knights Su-35S
aircraft are standard factory equipped.
