    Has anyone heard of this Russian fighter?

    It may be from the SU stable.

    It never fails to amaze me how some Modern Russian and American designs look so similar!

    I agree, the first time I saw it, it reminded me of the F 15.The best aircraft of thE variant design I feel is the F15i which is the Israeli self produced version.

    The video I have is the YouTube Aerobatics as displayed above.

    I have to agree with Bodston as both the American F15 and the Russian Flanker are really beautiful machines with a fantastic shape.

    The flanker is just a curvacious F-15 in my opinion...i prefer the Russian fighters to be honest, don't quite know why though!

    The Russian even have a stealth fighter. Well they should do by now I saw a pic of a prototype etc about 6 years ago so I would thought it was flying by now.

    It was a mig but can't remember the number....Probably 69 or something :lol:

    The MK suffix denotes export versions of Russian aircraft, in this instance the Sukhoi 30.
    Hmm.... Mig 69, I suppose is one that goes down on you???

    As I stated earlier the new Russian T50 Stealth fighter looks uncannily like an American F22 Raptor!
