Note: the aircraft model is identical to the Flaming Cliffs 3 module. Owners of FC3 do not need to purchase.
The Su-33 is an all-weather air superiority and maritime strike fighter with a primary role of Fleet Air Defence. A carrier-based version of the superb Su-27, the Su-33 (NATO designation Flanker D) has been the backbone of Russian aircraft carrier aviation since entering service in 1995. Able to carry a wide range of powerful air-to-surface weapons and anti-ship missiles, the Flanker D has true multirole capability.
The Su-33 is equipped with an advanced pulse doppler radar (Slot Back) and an Infrared Search and Track (IRST) system that can automatically detect, identify, track and engage up to ten aerial and ground-based targets. The Flanker D can carry a wide range of semi-active and active-radar guided as well as IR and extended range (ER) missiles such as the R-73 (AA-11 Archer) and R-27E (AA-10 Alamo) on twelve hardpoints. An internal 150-round 30 mm GSh-30-1 cannon provides close range punch. For air-to-surface attack, the Su-33 can be armed with many types of unguided bombs, rockets, and cluster munitions.
Twin AL-31F afterburning turbofan engines each produce 15,500 kilogram-force (kgf) of thrust, powering the aircraft to a maximum speed of 2,300km/h and a climb rate of 325m/s. The Su-33’s integral helmet-mounted sight, off-boresight missile capability and maneuverability-enhancing canard wings make it a dangerous opponent in a dogfight.
Note: This is the exact same Su-33 that comes with DCS: Flaming Cliffs 3. As part of the DCS: Flaming Cliffs 3 series, the cockpit is non-mouse interactive.
