Stormed Fury by theonlyXns Stormed Fury by theonlyXns
My first wallpaper in months. Many many months.

The Su-27, the base of the Su-37, is the Soviet/Russian answer to the American F-15E Eagle. What makes the Su-37 different from the Su-27 and Su-33 variations is the canards along with thrust vectoring nozzles, with greatly upgraded avionics. It's easily considered one of the best fighters in the world.

While I do admit I did use alot of overused brushes in this one, I do feel like I managed to do something with them that most people haven't seen yet. I mean, I didn't quite have this image when I started but it just kinda ended up like it.

I mean, sure it could be loads better, but for a first wallpaper in months, I'm actually surprised as how I did.


If you use it for your own desktop, please favourite.

Unfortunately only 2 Su-37s have been built so far. This picture looks like it would make a sweet desktop.

Thanks

And yeah, you'd think they'd make more, but instead they went ahead with the 47, which looks horrible I feel. And since the wings are like 'OMFGHUGE', I believe it's meant to have foldable wings and be carrier based.

Although they get points for using most of the 27/33/37 fuselage as the base for the 47.

TOO BAD I'LL NEVER EVER GET TO FLY ONE

I don't think the Su-47 is going into production either. The fact is that Russia is not building its own military much anymore, because it can make more $$$ selling to other nations.

For example, the latest designs such as Su-34, Su-35/33, and S-400 (an SAM with a range of 400km) have been built in only a couple dozens, though in some respects they are on par or superior to the US counterparts.

Heh, I'm probably boring you now. I like the Su-35 the best. The SU-37 is too yellow.

Well with Russia's recent aggression in Georgia, I think there's an improved chance that they may at least put the 47 into at least a kind of limited production (similar to the B-2 stealth bombers). While I don't really enjoy the general design of the 47, I'm sure it is superior to the 27 and it's variants.
