range, heavy armor, and great agility in the air. These U.S. aircraft,
the F-14 Tomcat, F-15 Eagle, F-16 Fighting Hornet, and F/A-18 Hornet
dominated U.S. air power for three decades. In the context of the Cold

but it was not until 1984 that significant numbers of the Su-27
started to enter service. Eventually some 680 Su-27 were built for the
Soviets, of which 400 remain in service with the Russian Tactical Air
Force today. Outside of Russia, the Su-27 is also in service with the
Chinese, and on the inventories of the air forces of Vietnam,
Malaysia, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Syria, and Angola.
This book describes in depth the development, operational career,
history, and variants within the Su-27 family. The book incorporates
color and black and white photos to portray some of the various
camouflage schemes carried by the type in Soviet, Russian, and other
air forces over the past two decades.
