On August 24, 1991 Ukraine gained its independence from the Soviet Union and also that same year inherited 67 Su-27/27UB's. On March 17, 1992 the Air Force of the Ukraine was formed and later in 2004/2005 the name was once again changed to Air Forces of the Armed Forces of the Ukraine. Su-27 Flanker B was received by the Ukraine in 2012 with a c/n 36911035716 Bort 100. There are over 30 active Su-27s in various versions located with the 831st Tactical Aviation Brigade and 39th Separate Tactical Aviation Squadron.

Sukhoi Su-27 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.
