Designed by the Soviet Union to challenge the superiority of fourth generation U.S. fighters such as the F-15 Eagle, the Su-27 was first flown on May 20, 1977. This one seat Mach-2 fighter had the Soviet Union's first operational fly-by-wire system. This 1/72 scale, die cast model from Hobby Master recreates the Su-34 as flown by the Russian Air Force in 2017. This amazing piece includes realistic panel lines, an opening canopy, a detailed interior, interchangeable landing gear, authentic markings and ordnance loads, plus a display stand. 12 ¾" long.
