Su-34 looks Communist...
The F-15 Strike Eagle is quite impressive with its payload. But it makes me wonder how it's combat radius is so much greater than the SU-34's when the SU-34 has the greater ferry range. Combat radius refers to a loaded (weapons, fuel) aircraft that is able to take out a mission and return home, the Strike Eagle has a greater payload but somehow maintains a superior combat radius even though it has a shorter ferry range and is now loaded with more weapons. I assume that the Strike Eagles combat radius included drop tanks, that or there is some inaccurate figures being advertised.
In any case stick to the topic, it's an SU-34 thread not an F-15 comparison thread.

Because 5g projects have their own faults . Also because they are still in development phase except F22 and it takes atleast 2 decades for a country to get enough experience and hand full of squadrons . The add ons like EW suite, AESA etc make 4th gen fighter worthy enough .
4th generation planes would be around for a long time.
Ah, how I miss the Cold War days when military toys were popping up
OMG this aircraft is ugly!!
