Notes
Su-35 FlankerThe Su-35 variant of the Flanker (also identified as the Su-27M or "Super Flanker") substantially improves the type's capabilities against ground targets. Where the Su-27's fire control system can only manage unguided weapons ("dumb" bombs, rockets, etc.), the Su-35 can carry a wide range of guided air-to-ground ordnance. In addition, the Su-35 is equipped with terrain-following radar, an in-flight refuelling receptacle, and canards to improve its low speed handling.

In game terms, the Su-35 variant is described as follows:
• Add NOE Flyer and Refuelling Intake Perks, remove Annoyance (TV: 19,012)
