After Phantom Phriday and Cruddy Monday it had to come....

The Very Simple Rules:

- You can post on Sunday only.

- Your pics can feature any Sukhoi aircraft, including foreign variants such as Chinese J-11 Flankers

- As many posts as you want each Sunday, and you can have multiple pictures in each post 😁

 

So, without further ado, let's get this show on the road.....

 

A couple of rookie Rooks on a familiarisation flight over Afghanistan, early 1980s

Sukhoi Sunday... I love that.  Even when they aren't blowing up...

I don't think Sukhoi coulda done much better with a non-stealth fighter than the Flanker.  Lots of hardpoints, lots of range, decent speed, and good maneuverability all at the absolute sacrifice of stealth.

Scramble against a flood of inbound Hornets, and help was on the way.. It devolved into a running fight in and among the hills, with missile shots whenever you popped up long enough to lock a target. Eventually, we downed enough to get a "mission accomplished", but it  was time to go when the Tomcats showed up.
