Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare...
This is the Sukhoi Su-37, a Russian experimental single-seat, super-manoeuvrable multirole jet fighter, designed by Sukhoi. It looks like any other fighter, but it can perform impossible manoeuvres. A further development of the original Su-27 "Flanker", it was modified from the first-generation Su-35 prototypes. The Su-37 features an upgraded avionic suite and fire-control system, but its most notable additions are the thrust-vectoring nozzles.
Fighter aircraft are traditionally fast but very heavy, which makes them difficult to turn. The Sukhoi Su-37 can perform heart-stopping manoeuvres that defy gravity. For any other fighter these manoeuvres would be well beyond their flight envelope. They would stall and crash. Thrust vectoring and small carnard wings allow the pilot to throw the Su-37 around the skies like an aerobatics plane. Twenty tonnes of military metal can reverse direction instantly. This amazing agility would give it a decisive edge in combat. On its first public appearance its pilot issued and open challenge to dogfight against all comers, no one took up the offer.
