China to get Su-37 jets
The Su-37 is a super maneuverable fighter jet, copied from the Su-35 prototype. The fighter jet is similar with the Su-27.
The Su-37 is still in development by the Russian company Sukhoi and is determined for the Russian Air Force. It's an air-defense jet, and a ground-attack jet, which should be operate under all weather conditions. However Russia still hasn't given an order. Sukhoi works with the money from what China has paid for the Su-37 license.
In contrast with the Su-27 the Su-37 has protect material made from carbon-fiber with an alloy of aluminum and lithium. The nozzles in the 2 engines have been replaced by titanium. Maximum speed is around 2.4 mach without bombs or missiles.
Radar and electronics
The aircraft has radar which can at the same time observe the air and the threats on the ground. This radar, digital phased array radar can more like: do ground surveillance, searching and select enemies in the sky, and warning to avoid determined fields. The aircraft has also a satellite control navigation system. With a fly-by-wire system it has a high level of maneuverability. With ECM (Electronic Counter Measures) pods mounted on the wings the Su-37 can do electronic warfare.
The Su-37 has 12 standards which can be expanded to 14 points to carry air-to-air and air-to-surface missiles.
I got this information from a defense annalist.
