"All aircraft, be advised! Enemy strike fighters are on the approach! They're Fullbacks, definitely faster than the ones before!"
AWACS Long Caster

The Su-34 Fullback (also known as the Su-32 Strike Flanker in older titles) is an attacker aircraft developed from the Su-27 Flanker-B. It made its debut in Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War.

History

Strangereal

The Strike Flanker saw use during the Belkan War where it was operated by the Belkan Air Force and Sapin Air Force. It was later used by the terrorist organisation A World With No Boundaries. A notable unit was the Suerte Squadron.[1]

The Strike Flanker later saw use in the Circum-Pacific War. It was used by the 172nd Fighter-Bomber Squadron of the Yuktobanian Air Force.

In 2014, Free Erusea deployed the Fullback against IUN forces. During Operation Scramble, several Su-34s attempted to attack Fort Grays Island, but all of them were shot down by Mobius 1.[2]

The Su-34 was later utilized in the Lighthouse War by the Erusean Air Force. Two detachments of Su-34s were fielded by the EAF during Operation Sighthound in an attempt to attack the Osean Navy ships approaching Artiglio Port, only for all of the aircraft to be shot down by the LRSSG.[3]

Assault Horizon universe

The Su-34 Fullback was used by New Russian Federation forces. A number of them bombed Belyi Base until they were taken out by Warwolf Squadron.[4]

Infinity universe

Wernher and Noah Enterprises obtained production rights for the aircraft and produced it in large numbers with its Advanced Automated Aviation Plant. During Operation Eternal Liberation, the aircraft was not used by the USEA Federation, but proved extremely popular among United Nations Forces mercenaries.

"An attacker developed based on the Su-27 with a tandem seat cockpit. It exhibits top class maneuverability for an attacker, with its agile movements competing aggressively with fighters of the same class. Thicker armor also increases its survival rate. The NATO codename is the "Fullback". Assuming attack missions over an extended period of time, the rear section of pilot seats has a basin and a simple kitchen."
