This aircraft was first shown in 1992 and thereafter it was repeatedly demonstrated at various air shows. The armament arsenal was impressive.
High precision missiles and bombs, capable of hitting targets in the air, on the ground and at sea. It is not just an aircraft, it’s a whole combat complex. The striking SU-34 aircraft combines every function of a reconnaissance plane, a bomber and a strike fighter.
But the route from inert fighter-bombers of the mid-twenties, to this wonder-weapon of the end of the 21st century was not easy.
