    The Su-35S is equally reliable as a fighter, a long-range interceptor and a missile-carrying bomber.
    Military experts belive, that in terms of certain characteristics, the Su-35S has already overtaken the American F-22 Raptor.

    I don't think the radar ranges are correct.

    The Irbis-E range seems to be correct (roughly 400 km.), but it is the maximum detection the radar can detect at; fighter-sized targets obviously do not figure into that range. I dunno what that APG-77 figure is.

    EDIT -

    According to this graph from Carlo Kopp's site, the APG-77 can detect targets with large RCSs over 200 miles away:

    Now that figure is sourced from Aviation Week, which is a reliable enough source. So whatever that figure the article is quoting is either speculation or simply misinformation.

    Certain characteristics, off course Su series are better, but the real difference is stealth..!
