In 1994 Vietnam ordered twelve Su-27SK Flankers from Russia. The first two aircraft arrived in May 1995 with the remainder arriving in 1996. An order for two additional Su-27SKs was placed in 1996. The original twelve aircraft equipped the 937th Fighter Regiment/370th Fighter Division based at Phan Rang Airbase. In 1998 Su-27SK 6007 was lost in a crash. Later all of the Su-27s were transferred to the 935th Fighter Regiment at Bien Hoa.Opening canopy

The Su-27 (NATO reporting name - Flanker) is a single-seat highly-maneuverable fighter aircraft built by Sukhoi Design Bureau as the Soviet response to the United States F-14 and F-15. First flown on May 20, 1977, the Su-27 entered service in 1985. The primary role of the Su-27 was to provide long range air defense against U.S. bombers, protect the Soviet coast from U.S. aircraft carriers and provide escorts for Soviet bombers. There have been many improvements over the years resulting in numerous variants of the Su-27. The export variant, the Sukhoi Su-27SK was sold to China and eventually developed into the license-built Shenyang J-11.
Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
