Description

The Sukhoi Su-30MK (MKM-export version) is a russian made two-seat multirole fighter aicraft. Intended to gain air superiority, deliver blows against ground and waterborne targets by guided and unguided weapons, and also to conduct group combat actions in enemy's ECM and air defense fire environment, by day and night, in any weather conditions. The Sukhoi Su-30MK enables its crew to fully implement vast capabilities of up-to-date avionics systems and the entire range of airborne weapons to defeat aerial and ground (waterborne) targets. The Su-30MK is a qualitatively new multifunctional combat aircraft, in which the combat capabilities of Su-27-family aircraft have been retained and developed. It is developed from the Su-30 production aircraft and capable of carrying air-to-surface guided weapons.

 
Variants

- Su-30MK: Commercial version of the basic SU-30
- Su-30MKI: A variant of the Sukhoi Su-30, it is a heavy, all-weather, long-range fighter.
- Su-30MKK: is a modification of the Su-27 SK manufactured since 1999 by KnAAPO and Shenyang Aircraft Corporation. It is considered an upgraded version of Sukhoi Su-30.
- Su-30MKM: Malaysian and export version
- Su-30MKV: Venezuela version
- Su-30MK2: with upgraded electronics that enabled support for anti-ship missiles.
- Su-30MK2V: Su-30MK2 variant for Vietnam with minor modifications
- Su-30MKA: A specialised version for Algeria is similar to the MKI, but will principally be equipped with French and Russian avionics. It will feature head-up and multifunction displays from the Thales Group and Sagem of France.
- Su-30SM: A specialized version of the thrust-vectoring Su-30MKI for Russian military

 
Technical Data

Design
The Sukhoi Su-30MK aerodynamic configuration is an unstable-in-longitude triplane. To increase lifting effectiveness and enhance manoeuvrability of the aircraft, the canards are installed. They are deflected automatically to ensure flight at high angle-of-attack. In terms of its maneuverability at subsonic speeds and weapon options, the Su-30MK significantly outperforms all western modern tactical aircraft and is capable of enhancing the combat potential through equipping it with new avionics systems, including the foreign-made ones, and weapons complement.
Avionic
The Su-30MK is equipped with up-to-date avionics, including: a fire control radar system, an optronic fire control and navigation system integrated with a laser gyro-based inertial navigation system and satellite navigation equipment, multifunctional color displays to indicate flight and tactical information, a system intended to fairly monitor technical parameters, tactical situation, and crew actions, a mulfunction voice warning system.
Propulsion
The power plant of Su-30MK incorporates two AL-31FP by-pass turbojet reheated engines. The total 25,000-kgf afterburning thrust ensures 2M horizontal flight speed, 1,350-km/h speed at low altitude, and a 230-m/s climbing rate.
Armament
The Sukhoi SU-30MK is fitted with an inflight refueling system and 12 weapon suspension hardpoints. The Su-30MK can be armed with:
- Kh-'iQM general-purpose medium-range TV/command-guided missiles (up to 2);
- Kh-31A supersonic medium-range antiship active radar- homing missiles (up to 6);
- Kh-31P antiradar passive-homing missiles (up to 6);
- Kh-29T general-purpose TV-homing missiles (up to 6);
- Kh-29L laser-guided missiles (up-to-6);
- KAB-500Kr guided aerial bombs (up to 6) or KAB-1500Kr aerial bombs with TV-correlated homing heads (up to 3);
- KAB-1500L semiactive laser-guided aerial bombs (up to 3);
- unguided weapons (aerial bombs, bomb clusters, incendiary tanks, submunition dispensers, and rockets) with a total weight of up to 8,000 kg.

Accessories
The airborne radar ensures detection of aerial targets in a free space and against the underlying surface background, ground and sea targets, terrain mapping, as well as low- altitude nap-of-earth flights. This radar ensures detection of large sea-surface targets at a distance of up to 400 km, and small-size ones - at a distance of up to 120 km. In preliminary long-range aiming mode, the radar locks on the target automatically, with co-ordinates transferred into the navigation system. The Su-30MK's electronic warfare system incorporates an active jamming station intended to effectively suppress enemy's electronic weapon control systems to provide individual, mutual and group protection. The communications system is intended to provide communication with command posts and airborne aircraft and ensure information exchange between group aircraft, as well as target distribution and designation. The automatic flight control system makes it possible to perform planned-route flights, return to a preprogrammed airfield in the manual, automatic or director flight modes, execute a prelanding maneuver and perform an automatic landing approach and repeated approach for landing.
