    The Sukhoi Su-35S Flanker E is a highly modified and improved derivative of the Su-27.
    In the 1980s modifications were made to the Su-27 (Su-27M) also referred to as Su-35.
    About 20 years later a heavily modified member of the Flanker family was produced and
    given the title of Su-35S Flanker E. Considered by many to be the most capable fourth
    generation fighter in the sky and equipped with many fifth generation technologies. This
    probably will be the last of the Flanker family when the fifth generation Russian aircraft
    arrive.

    The Russian Government sent Sukhoi Su-35S "Flanker E" aircraft belonging to the 23rd
    Fighter Aviation Regiment, 303rd Guards Composite Air Division to Latakia, Syria in an
    effort to support President al-Assad's government. One of the Su-35S was Red 05
    RF-95815 that was delivered to Russian Forces in November 2015. Russia also saw
    this deployment as a great opportunity to field test the Su-35S under combat conditions
    as well as giving the crews valuable training and increase demand for the aircraft from
    foreign buyers.
