Russian Navy Baltic Fleet, Red 93, June 2017

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker-B   12"   8"

June 19, 2017 a Su-27 Flanker Red 93 did an intercept on a USAF RC-135U. This maneuver was conducted at high speed and closed to within twenty feet of the RC-135U deeming it to be very unsafe for both aircraft. Red 93 was manufactured with c/n 36911031105 and given serial RF-33749. Su-27 Flanker B Red 93 wears the markings of the VMF Rossia (VMF - Volga Military Fleet) indicating it is a naval aircraft. The waving-red-banner is a Guard badge indicating an elite status unit as far back as Tsarist times.

Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker-B

Designed by the Soviet Union to challenge the superiority of fourth generation US fighters such as the F-15 Eagle, the Su-27 was first flown on May 20, 1977. This one seat Mach-2 fighter had the Soviet Union's first operational fly-by-wire system. The aircraft is very large compared to the MiG-29, its closest Soviet counterpart, but it is built with a high percentage of titanium, which helps minimize its weight. It is exceptionally agile and is perhaps most famous for its "Cobra" maneuver, which is a short, sustained level flight at a 120 degree angle of attack, often performed at air shows.
