Sukhoi SU-37 Flanker (Russian)
This twin-engine, long range air superiority fighter features many advancments over the US F-14 AND F-15 , It boasts a larger load capacity than its predecessor the SU-27, and is also good in combat situations.

  1. The new Russian Sukhoi SU-37 jet fighter aircraft
    can be modified into a new SU-37 ULTRA-SUPER
    FLANKER Jet.

    There would be a 2-man crew–PILOT, and sitting in tandem with the Navigator-Weapons REO Officer.

    A new engine, a modified Llukya AL-41,
    would weigh–with after-burner, 2,950 Lbs.,
    and in non-after-burner mode generate
    27,700 lbs. of thrust–a thrust to weight
    ratio of 9.4-to-1.0.
    In after-burner operations, the maximum
    thrust of 46,350 lbs. of thrust–a 16.6
    to-1.00 the thrust to weight ratio.

    Combat Radius—–970 miles–2-engined versions.
    Combat Radius—–786 miles–3-engine versions.

    Climb Rate—79,500 feet per minute-2 jet engines.
    Climb Rate—94,200 feet per minute-3 jet engines.

    Service ceiling altitude–70,480 feet.

    A compression Ratio of 33.8-1.00; comparable
    to the new USAF F-22 “Raptor” jet engine 35.10
    to 1.00 compression Ratio.

    Aircraft base weight————29,600 lbs.
    Fully loaded aircraft weight—-61,000 lbs.

    both above–2 new jet engines.

    Total aircraft weight-to-thrust ratio
    of 1.00-to-1.52.

    With the 3-engined version——–38,230 lbs.,
    base weight, and 72,000 lbs, fully-loaded.
    Total aircraft weight to thrust ratio of

    All 2-engined versions would have 2 jet
    engines with vectored-exhaust thrust nozzles.

    In the 3-engined version, the center-engine
    would be used to keep the aircraft steadied.
    This center engine would not have vectored thrust,
    but it’s maximum thrust, in after-burner mode
    would be 61,650lbs. of thrust—–essentially
    a turbo-rocket RAM JET, for a “max-thrust”
    for periods of up to 225 seconds–in Methane Gas
    To elaborate further:
    There would Methane Gas Injection into
    a tapered exhaust-section, giving this jet
    a “kick-boot” in climbing.

    In terms of G-loads—–maximum in turns–14.2 Gs.
    In flight, a negative 4.5 Gs and up to a positive
    12.5 Gs.


    On-board armaments:

    1—-44 MILLIMETER CANNON–Nose of aircraft
    with 109 rounds—3 per second of cyclic rate of fire. Each of the cannon shell would have a fusing
    proximity-control to cause rounds to explode
    in a shower of fragments 20-to-30 meters from
    enemy target jet.
    Shell velocity —4,400 feet per second.

    2—-60-caliber wing machine guns—490 rounds
    each, with a cyclic firing rate of 1,050 rounds
    per minute–or 18.4 rounds per second.
    Each round would have depleted-coated “slug”.

    4-to-6 “Super-Phoenix”-type air-to-air missiles
    with an effective 240-kilometer range, at
    MACH 5.65. These missiles would be anti-satellite
    ASAT-capable, also, especially during a modified
    “Pugachev Cobra” manuever.
    These missiles will carried internally
    like in the USAF F-22 “Raptor” jets air-to-air

    On the wing “hard-points”, 4 “Super Sidewinder”
    air-to-air missile—13.6 kilometer range
    and at MACH 3.5 ,in speed.
    Hard-points with missiles would have
    a 11.8 G maximum turning force, before this G-force
    would tear-off the missiles in a turn.

    On board-avionics will be able to track
    up to 10 targets, at the same time.


    Instead of a long runway for take-off,
    the mode of launching this aircraft would
    be railed-sleds that are 580 meters in length.
    This will be a 60-degree up-angle of launching
    sled system.

    The aircraft would have 4-to-8 JATO-RATO
    launch-boosters, each generating 8,700 lbs of thrust for 22-to-31 seconds.
    These rocket JATO-RATO boosters would be
    jettisoned 3 seconds before aircraft lifts-off
    from the launch-sled. G-Load–7.7-to-9.0Gs.

    Just before launching this aircraft on the rail-
    sleds, by 10 seconds before JATO-RATO ignition,
    the aircraft will be in FULL-POWER-THROTTLE
    Mode. At Lift-Off, the middle or core engine
    will have a 35 second injection of Liquid
    Methane into both the Combustor stages, but also
    a 45 second Liquid Methane injection the
    after-burner section, for a added “kick-boost”.

    During this time, the two outer engines
    will be at “full throttle”, at a vectored-exhaust
    upward angle of 50 degrees for 24 seconds, then
    back to horizontal-mode.


    This is my proposal for this ULTRA-SUPER-
    FLANKER—call it the Sukhoi SU-37MMM-k-3,
    or the “Super-Terminator” for the twin-engined
    version, and the “Ultra-Terminator” ,for the
    3-engined version.

    Thank You:

    from Dr. Nick Stage–PHD.

  2. As a back-up:

    This proposed Ultra-Flanker-Ultra Terminator
    Sukhoi Jet, would be MACH-2.0-capable at Sea Level,
    a cruising speed at a maximum of MACH 2.75-plus,
    and a maximum speed in the 2-engined version
    of MACH 3.10, and in the 3-engined version
    a MAXIMUM SPEED–for up to 395-430 seconds of
    MACH 3.50-plus.

    Thanks Again:
    Dr. Nick Stage-PHD.
