"What's with this guy? That's an Su-30."
AWACS Bandog[1]

The Su-30SM is an upgraded version of the Su-30M2 Flanker-F2, itself a two-seater multirole combat variant of the Su-27 Flanker-B. It was first introduced to the series in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown.


In 2019, Mihaly A. Shilage, a former ace pilot, flew a customized Su-30SM with an EASA artificial intelligence known as Copro acting as his co-pilot. During the Lighthouse War, Mihaly flew the Su-30SM during multiple operations, often leading Sol Squadron into battle.[1][2] Trigger first encountered this aircraft during Operation Dual Wielder, in which Mihaly suddenly arrived and engaged Golem, Gargoyle and Mage Squadron, in which he shot down Gargoyle 1 and Brownie in the midst of the battle against Arsenal Bird Liberty and its fleet of MQ-101s. The aircraft withdrew before a counterattack could be attempted.[3]
