Russian Aviation Set to Impress at Paris

Russian Aviation Set to Impress at Paris

Russian aviation is presenting one of its most vivid and memorable displays at this year’s Paris Air Show, which begins today. Three military aircraft, the Sukhoi Su-35 multirole fighter, the Yakovlev Yak-130 combat training aircraft and the Kamov Ka-52 attack helicopter are participating in the flight displays above Le Bourget airfield. Aircraft and equipment represented 37 percent of deliveries by Russia’s Rosoboronexport export agency in 2012.

The Su-35 is designed to plug the gap between the existing Su-30 and future fifth-generation fighters. The aircraft incorporates fifth-generation technologies, according to Rosoboronexport, with new information management and fly-by-wire flight control system, Irbis-E phased-array radar and higher thrust NPO-Saturn 117S engines capable of reaching supersonic speed without using afterburner.
