The designation Su-35 had already been used from 1992 onwards to market the company's modernized Su-27M 'Super Flanker' (bureau designation T-10M). Developed in the late 1980s for the Soviet Air Force, the Su-27M incorporated a modified aerodynamic configuration, uprated engine, and upgraded avionics. Sukhoi realized by 2002 that it would no longer be able to compete with comtemporary and future foreign fighters. The single-seat Flanker needed to be drastically upgraded, including a major redesign of its airframe. Furthermore, the Sukhoi-owned KnAAPO plant had been struggling to compete with its Su-30MK2 against the more advanced Su-30MKI derivatives of the Irkut Corporation, its rival Flanker producer which is only partially owned by Sukhoi. Sukhoi started development of a new 'intermediate fighter' to fill the gap between its 'fourth generation' Su-30MK and its upcoming 'fifth generation' fighter in development under the PAK-FA (Perspektivnyi Aviatsionnyi Kompleks Frontovoi Aviatsii - Future Air System for Tactical Aviation) program, Sukhoi developed a new '4++ generation' Su-27 derivative, internally known as T-10BM. The Su-27 Bolshaya Modernizatsiya ('big modernization') utilizes a redesigned airframes based on the standard Su-27 and is fitted with the latest Russian avionics, advanced weapons and new engines. Re-using the Su-35 sans suffix designation, it is primarily aimed at the export market, but Sukhoi also hopes to produce localized versions for the Russian Air Force.
The Su-35 new fire control system consists of the N035 Irbis multifunction radar system and the OLS-35 electro-optical search-and-track system. The N035 Irbis (Irbis-E for export) is an X-band radar with a 900mm passive phased array. Developed by the Tikhomirov NIIP institute the Irbis radar is a derivative of the N011M Bars radar with wider search zone, increased detection range, wider range of operating frequencies and improved resistance to jamming.
Just like previous Su-27 derivatives, the Su-35 is capable of carrying a maximum payload of 8,000 kg on its 12 external hardpoints. The weapons suite has been further expanded with upgraded variants of existing weapons as well as several new long-range missiles.
The Su-35's air-to-air suite will comprise advanced R-27 versions (R-27ET1, R-27ER1, R-27EP1) and the active R-77 and new R-77M for medium range missiles, the R-73 and new R-74M short range missiles. Up to 12 R-77/R-77M can be carried, with two pairs placed between the nacelles. The Su-35 will also be able to equip up to five long-range missiles. Dubbed 'very-long-range' air-to-air missile, the K-100-1 (izdeliye 172S, 172S-1) has been developed by Novator in Yekaterinburg from its earlier K-172, which was first developed in 1991 for the Su-27M. The missile has a range of 300-400km and is capable of reaching speeds up to 4,000km/h pulling up to 9Gs to attack targets flying at altitudes ranging from 3m to 30,000m.
