A Sukhoi Su-35BM (fourth generation) in reality.

The Sukhoi Su-35 (Russian: Сухой Су-35, NATO reporting name: Flanker-E) is a single-seat, twin-engined supermaneuverable multirole fighter. It is a derivative of the Su-27 'Flanker', and was initially known as the Su-27M. More than a dozen of these were built with some used by the Russian Knights aerobatic demonstration team. The Su-35 had been offered to many countries, including India, Brazil and South Korea.

In the 1980s, Sukhoi was looking to upgrade its high-performance Su-27. The resultant Su-35 embodies aerodynamic refinements to give it more maneuverability, greatly enhanced avionics, longer range, and a more powerful engine. The first prototype, converted from a production Su-27, made its maiden flight in June 1988. The Su-35 was further developed into the Su-37, which has thrust-vectoring capabilities, and the Su-35BM, classified as 4++ generation fighter by its manufacturer. The new model entered into serial production as the Su-35S for the Russian Air Force in 2010.

Single PlayerEdit

In Singleplayer the Su-35 Flanker-E is operated by the Iranian Air Force in Going Hunting. There a total of seven of them and a few attempting to take off at the airport but are destroyed.


The Su-35BM Flanker-E appears in Battlefield 3 as the Russians' main fighter jet. It is equivalent to the F/A-18E Super Hornet. Both jets, along with the F-35, only appear in certain maps in Conquest gamemode.

Being a multirole fighter the Su-35BM has a 30mm gun and optional air-to-ground Rocket/Missiles or Heat seeking Missiles for air-to-air purposes.

As of the most recent patches IR Flares are unlocked by default, giving new pilots some survivability against anti-air missiles.


  • The Su-35 uses parts of the cockpit of the F-16 shown in earlier trailers of the game.
  • In "Going Hunting", the Su-35BMs are mistakenly said to be MiGs.
  • The Su-37 Flanker-F was apparently planned to be a usable vehicle, as seen in earlier trailers.
