Su-27m (factory designation T-10m) project was initiated in 1982 as an upgrade to the then Su-27, among the more important updates stands out the possibility of engaging ground targets. The Su-27M was equipment with a new N011 radar range of 350km, a new self-protective equipment RWR systems, Sorbtsiya ECM jammers and APP-50 chaff / flare. Su-27M also had a modernized cockpit, this includes multi-functional screens, improved HUD (head-up -display). IRST (infra-red search and track) sensor is shifted to the right for better visibility at the front of the pilot. Ejection seats is set at an angle of 30 degrees to the pilot easier to fight large g-forces that occur during flight.
The Su-27M has a newly designed nose cone got the canards and the new AL-31FM engines. Another new feature, the Su-27M have refuel probe and the front landing gear instead of one wheel, now has two wheels.
