Between 2004 and 2009, 54 Sukhoi Su-27S and P variants were upgraded to Su-27SM (serial modernization). The upgrade included an improved fire control system, new radar with a phased array antenna that allowed for an air-to-surface mode and a larger mixture of armament. Three multi-function displays, a HUD, a new self-defense system along with satellite communications gave an extended life to the Su-27s, but are now being replaced by the Su-35. As new Su-35s arrived at Dzemgi IAP the 12 Su-27SMs were transferred with Red 76 RF-95261 going to the Besovets IAP.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.
