The Su-35 is an advanced Su-27 derivative and was initially designated Su-27M. The Su-27M development began in the early 1980s. A Su-27M prototype (T-10S-70) first flew in 1988. Changes from the Su-27 include canards, upgraded engines, new radar, and a digital fly by wire flight control system. Other changes made were glass cockpit, aerial refueling probe, twin-wheel nose gear, more powerful radar, two additional underwing pylons, additional fuel capacity, and larger tail fins with horizontal carbon fibre tips.
The first prototype was publicly displayed in 1992 at the Farnborough Airshow. Sukhoi changed its designation for the fighter from Su-27M to Su-35 in 1993. Ten prototypes Su-35s were built with four being converted Su-27s and the others being new-builds. Three production Su-27Ms were completed in 1996 and delivered to Russian Air Force (VVS) that year for testing. Five Su-35s have been used by the Russian Knights display team. In total 15 flight capable Su-35 (Su-27M) aircraft were produced, including a Su-35UB two-seat prototype. Two of these Su-35s were modified into Su-37s in the mid to late 1990s. The Su-35 has been nicknamed "Super Flanker".
My opinion is that this is THE BEST aircraft in the World, but as i said it's only me opinion.
