Su-27SM Flanker ‘Red 64’ Photos?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have photos of the upper surface camouflage of the Su -27SM Flanker ‘Red 64’?  And can anyone provide a list of details that differentiate the SM version of flankers?  

 

Thanks

Dan,

 

The Su-27SM can be identified visually by the offset IRST ball on the windscreen (moved to starboard to make room for the IFR probe - although, curiously, the SM does not have a probe).

 

It also has the small EW antenna on the L/E slats.

Also lacking is the triangular shaped 'Berioza'(?) antenna on the intake sides.

 

Here's a 'standard' old Su-27 for comparison.....

There are other minor differences - the antenna on the fin tip trailing edge for example.
