Two days ago, a Russian Sukhoi Su-27 “Flanker”, the best 4G fighter in the world according to the author of this site, intercepted a US special recon aircraft (RC-130) over the Baltic Sea. Business as usual? Yes and no.
Actually, the Su-27 pilot involved in this ‘routine’ encounter is believed to be one of the closed 10 As fighter pilots club of the Russian Airforce. We can only guess what kind of extreme maneuvers he performed above and below the US military aircraft.
