Default Su-33 Carrier Landing

With the Super Carrier module around the corner, I thought it would be good to brush up my carrier landing skills.

What came out of this trip in the rabbit hole is a CASE I tutorial for the Su-33.

Would love to hear your take on how to land this thing properly, Russian Navy style!

That was a beautiful landing

The Su-33 carrier pattern has been discussed before in this thread: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=213582

It was postulated, based on the very little available information, that the MiG-29K might use a pattern similar to the F/A-18C but that the Su-33 might use a larger pattern. Ultimately though there isn't enough open source information available to be sure either way. It's also possible that our Su-33 is missing a carrier landing HUD mode though this is again conjecture.

Either way, if it works then use it

Thank you for the thread. I like mysteries, but when it comes to Russian procedures, I'm very frustrated!

Thanks, I know what you mean. I spent quite a few hours trawling the net trying to find a documented description of what circuit was used with the Kuznetsov. Ultimately I decided the information simply isn't available. Not entirely surprising but definitely frustrating.
