I've never seen a P77 fitted to an Su-33 except on a ground stand aircraft at an airshow. This was probably a demonstrator for some proposed Su-33 export version with upgraded avionics. Haven't seen...

Are you playing the "Ultimate Argument" campaign? If so, your wingmen are at worst a useful distraction for the enemy and at best will shoot some of them down.

The issue is that wingmen have very poor fuel management which in turn comes from poor throttle management. Wingmen will quite happily hit maximum afterburner for as long as it takes them to catch up...

I think the combination has been shown as a static display at a couple of airshows. Probably nothing more than advertising by Sukhoi for advanced export versions of the Su-33, which I can't imagine...

There's also the KAB-xxxxS and -SE GLONASS guided variants. I'd imagine the difficulties are answering questions such as:

It won't. The AOA/G limiter on the Su-27 is programmed such that it'll save you nearly at any weight and at any speed except when transonic. The limiter on the Su-33 doesn't seem to take account of...

This is probably where the radar creates a 'track file', possibly in a similar way to the track files created by radars in western aircraft. Interesting. I wonder if this is a half-way-house between...

Like every aircraft the Su-33 has advantages and disadvantages. It's heavier than the Su-27 so has a marginally lower T/W ratio. That being said it also has canards which the Su-27 doesn't and is...

Track Clip Pro replacement?

The stand-alone F-15C and Su-27 are identical to the FC3 aircraft, you don't need both.

Did you get them as part of a free tryout or similar?
