Ukrainian Forces Shot Down a Russian Most Powerful Fighter Jet midair near Kherson
The Ukrainian forces shot down a Russian Su-35 fighter jet near the city of Nova Kakhovka during heavy fighting in the southern part of the country.
The Sukhoi Su-35S is the new generation of the Soviet-era Su-27. The Su-27 eventually evolved into the multi-role Su-35S, as the U.S. Air Force’s F-15A Eagle heavy air superiority fighter has done over time.
The Su-35 can detect targets at a distance of more than 400 km, has 12 hardpoints, a 30mm cannon, and its radar can follow up to 30 targets at once. The aircraft has a range of more than 3,500 kilometers without refueling.
