    Question for my Russian bros. Can the Tigr be equipped with an AT launcher? If so, does anyone have any pictures of it?

    Hey, is it me or are the twin vertical tails on these new serial Su-35S larger (standard Flanker size), when compared to the so-called "BM" 35 prototypes?

    Su-35S

    vs. Su-35"BM" Prototype


    Flankerman?

    EDIT: More pics
    Su-27 (legacy)

    vs. Su-35S

    vs. Su-35 "BM"


    and

    Su-35S

    vs. Su-35 "BM"


    This tail or vertical stabilizer is totally same as the basic, single seater Su-27 type. The only difference is the bigger rudder. The rear edge is almost vertical, the area is bigger, so the tail looks like bigger but actually the tail itself is same.
    I could match them in 2007 MAKS, when the No.901 and a normal Su-27 were next to each other.

    best wishes to charly015, and all be on the lookout for PAK-FA in Zhukovsky and in KNAAPO(Komsomolsk na Amure), because Mig-1.42 already disapeared from Zhukovsky

    I agree - I looked long and hard at the fins side by side at MAKS 2007 - and the only thing I can definitely see is the bigger rudder area.

    The fin leading edge meets the fuselage/wing juncture in the same place.

    They may be taller - although that may be an illusion caused by the smaller grey dielectric fin tip - and it looks like the rake angle at the tip is less on the Su-35S.

    Difficult to call though.

    Aha, I see. Thanks!
    (Hm, I thought I read somewhere before that the 35's vertical tails were to be made smaller in order to decrease frontal RCS)
