    What are these Sukhois?? Su-35??

    • vorontsevich (f/k/a ayaa) says:

      Strizhi don’t fly Sukhoi’s. Those are Mikoyan fighters, probably the new Mig-29SMT’s.

        Yeah you’re right, however author mixed photos of two different groups – Strizhi and Vityazi. It’s easy though, as they often perform in various shows together.

  2. Matt Dean says:

    Nope. They’re Su-25…..Su-35 is almost like Su-30 but without canard….

  3. Haplo says:

    The Su-25 seems to be a captured one from Georgia as it has the insignia covered…

    Photos are a mix of Strizhi’s and Russian Vityazi’s photos.
    Strizhi fly MiG-29s only, Vityazi – Su-27. Very last photo is MiG-29 of Strizhi (with a bird sign on a body), while the second from last is Vityazi’s Su-27 (as can be seen from different emblem).
    This photo (http://media.englishrussia.com/112012/strizhi5/strizhi007-86.jpg) shows Strizhi (one can see a blue bird painted on the bottom of each airplane). But this photo shows Vityazi: http://media.englishrussia.com/112012/strizhi5/strizhi007-75.jpg (can be distinguished by different painting).
