Thank you, perfect timing for me as I've started flying red on buddyspike.

This is especially helpful where AIM120 and R77/R27ET's are banned

Edit: in the past few days I've updated the guide a few times with corrections, clarifications, a couple screenshots/diagrams and the radar vs EOS addendum, the link I provided will always go to the most recent version
Just wanted to say thanks for the article. I just jumped back into the SU 27 after not flying it for a while. After all the new kit, it was really good to fly this impressive sim again. The IR Optical targeting with that clever IFF trick (flash the radar on and off) is truly remarkable.

Just using what we are given weapons wise, is a challenge itself. With hilly terrain, it's entirely feasible to knock out an Eagle/Hornet armed with Amraams! Fly low, terrain mask and then pop up and bushwack em!

I wonder if there will be a full clickable cockpit version in the future?

Cheers.

The only comment I'd make is that you describe the R-27ER as being sluggish, when it's actually anything but sluggish. It's maximum speed and acceleration values are well above anything the AIM-120 could ever hope to achieve. I've seen an R-27ER top out at over 4,200 Km/h at the point at which the sustain motor burned out. I agree that it has poor terminal performance against targets pulling a lot of G's but it's speed and acceleration are it's main and huge advantages.
I feel the author did not fully understand how to exploit those advantages in pure pursuit shots at the time of this guides writing
The author should in the future some time soon revisit that aspect of the guide

That would be good. The R-27ET is my favourite toy for pure pursuit shots as it gives no RWR warning, accelerates incredibly quickly and has a very viable range for that purpose. It's quite smokey but other than that it's great - same seeker as the R-73 but with a significantly increased range.

I haven't tested the "new" 27s yet but they were the reason many of us quit flying Su27 and MiG29. The ET was useful only against unaware targets and the ER against choppers. When dealing with drivers that know their business they were plane useless. I'll have to see if there's any improvement on these chapters.
