"The flight lasted more than an hour. All units and aircraft systems worked smoothly. Comments on the operation of the engine and avionics not "- said the source of the" Interfax ".

According to him, after the completion of factory flight tests of this machine will be transferred to the Russian Air Force.

He recalled that, in accordance with the previously signed contract will be supplied to the Russian Air Force 48 multi-role fighters Su-35s.

Under the experimental flight tests of Su-35s have completed more than 300 flights. In these trials is also involved first production Su-35s, the launching of which was held in May this year.

During the test flight of Su-35S fully confirms the basic performance characteristics. Reached a maximum speed at sea and in the air … Target detection range in the "air-to-air" — more than 400 km. This is significantly higher than were in service aircraft. Airborne radar can detect and track multiple targets at ranges of over 80 km. The complex is ready to undergo tests for combat use.

According to experts, the analysis performed by the amount of work can already be concluded that the potential inherent in the aircraft performance will exceed all tactical fighters generation 4 and 4 + (such as Rafale and EF 2000, modernized fighters such as the F-15, F-16, F-18 and Mirage 2000) and counteract the aircraft F-22A, as well as tactical fighter F-35A.

In the development and testing of the Su-35S is used as a technological advance that is implemented when creating a promising fifth generation aviation complex (PAK FA), which will allow a lower cost and in a shorter time to complete its development and to adopt the Russian Air Force.

Su-35S — deeply modernized super-maneuverable multi-role fighter of the 4 + +. It uses fifth-generation technologies that ensure superiority over similar class fighters.

The distinctive features of the aircraft are new avionics suite based on digital information control system integrating avionics systems, new radar with a phased antenna array with long-range detection of air targets with an increased number of simultaneously tracked and engaged targets (30 escort and attack eight air targets as well as the support of four and two attack ground targets), the new engine with increased thrust and turning thrust vector.

Su-35S has a broad range of weapons of large, medium and small range. The aircraft can carry guided air attack (TSA) antiRLS, antikorabl, utility, guided aerial bombs and unguided TSA. Fighter’s radar signature compared to the fourth generation of aircraft reduced several times due to conductive coating canopy, applying radar-absorbing coatings and reduced the number of protruding sensors. Service Life — 6 thousand flight hours, service life — 30 years of operation, the assigned resource engines with controlled nozzle — 4 thousand hours.
