    On a few of those prior pictures of the wheeled vehicles.. i have a question. Are those actual white wall tires? Or are they some type of paint/tape to put on them for parading around in? Looks nice, but if they are actual white wall tires they wouldnt seem useful in combat..

    you are seriously asking this question??? Doesn't the united states paint they're planes pretty or their vehicles all shiny and painted up for parades, or air shows?

    Yes i am seriously asking this question. Its a logical question dude.. We hardly have tanks rolling around on streets for parads. When my dad was in the military i got to go to what they call "military days" on the bases. There you could see the tanks move around the field and heavy machinery move about, etc, etc. None, none what so ever had white walls. That is why i "seriously" asked the question.

    Never seen a Mi-8 with that type of nose. More used to the glass nose.
    Weather radar in the nose.

    IMHO this makes the leftmost fullback the early variant.
    Bort number Blue 42 was a 'boilerplate' conversion from the Su-27 - it had single mainwheels, taller Su-27UB-style fins and a 'standard' tail boom.

    It was designated by Sukhoi as the T10V-1 and was the first variant of what later was designated as Fullback.

    The rightmost Fullback in the lineup is the latest configuration - with the boarding steps permanently attached to the nosewheel leg.

    The one in the middle is an interim configuration.

    All Su-34s after bort 42 had the twin mainwheels, shorter fins, extended tailbooms etc.

    AFAIK, the development a/c are numbered 42 to 47.

    Borts 01 & 02 are the ones recently delivered to the 4th TsBP i PLS at Lipetsk
