Ukrainian Military Shot Down The First Russian Su-35 Flanker-E

The Ukrainian military has increased its retaliation against the Russian military as the Russia-Ukraine war approaches its 40th day. The latest clip, which has gone popular on social media, shows the Ukrainian military shooting down a Su-35 fighter plane, also known as Russia’s beast-attacking aircraft, near the city of Izyum.

An Su-35 dived vertically before pancaking in the Kharkiv region, according to a video shared online on Sunday. Several sources confirmed the photographs depicted the wreckage of a Su-35, Russia’s most advanced and contemporary platform. It went into full operation in 2018.

The Su-35S was shot down by Ukrainian air defences, according to Ukrainian sources, albeit this cannot be confirmed at this time. A video has surfaced showing the plane in flames crashing to the ground. The pilot of the Flanker derivative was arrested by Ukrainian forces after surviving the ejection.

The Sukhoi Su-35 is a large, long-range, multi-role, twin-engine, 4++ fighter aircraft designed by Sukhoi Military Aircraft Corporation. The Cold War-era Su-27 Flanker will face off against the American F-15 Eagle.

The Su-35 Flanker-E multirole 4++ generation supermaneuverable jet is a single-seater with no canards, L-265M10P/R ECM wingtip pods, and heat shields on the stabilisers: the aircraft was readily identified as a Su-35S Flanker-E multirole 4++ generation supermaneuverable jet. The first to be lost since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began.
