In 1994 in an effort to modernize the Vietnamese People's Air Force (VPAF) they ordered twelve Su-27SK Flankers from Russia. In May 1995 the first two aircraft arrived with the remainder arriving in 1996. A new 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 AB and were later transferred to the 935th FR at Bien Hoa.

Sukhoi Su-27SK Flanker-B

Designed by the Soviet Union to challenge the superiority of fourth generation US fighters such as the F-15 Eagle, the Su-27 was first flown on May 20, 1977. This one seat Mach-2 fighter had the Soviet Union's first operational fly-by-wire system. The aircraft is very large compared to the MiG-29, its closest Soviet counterpart, but it is built with a high percentage of titanium, which helps minimize its weight. It is exceptionally agile and is perhaps most famous for its "Cobra" maneuver, which is a short, sustained level flight at a 120 degree angle of attack, often performed at air shows.
