From the Manufacturer
The Su-27 is a long-range air superiority fighter compared to the US F-15 in size and mission. It entered production in 1982 and is in service with Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Vietnam. The Flanker also features rearward-facing radar at the end of a long boom placed between the engines allowing the Su-27 to fire at targets behind the aircraft. This plastic model kit is an accurate representation of the military vehicle.
