Trivia

  • Two variants of the Su-35 are depicted in Ace Combat. The first is the original prototype of the Su-35, also known as the Su-27M, which appears in all games before Assault Horizon. The second is the final production variant, officially known as the Su-35S, which is featured in Assault Horizon and Infinity.
  • During the development of Ace Combat 2, the Namco team wanted the player to be able to perform the Flanker family's signature "Pugachev's Cobra" with the Su-35. Towards the development deadline, they managed to allow the AI to perform the maneuver, but were unable to let the player perform it. Right before the game's release, the development crew modified some parameters to allow players to perform a rudimentary Cobra, but the feature was ultimately removed.
  • The large numbers of enemy Su-35s appearing in Assault Horizon suggest that the aircraft has gone under mass production in the game's universe. In reality, it is still in limited use by VVS, even though Venezuela has placed an order for the Su-35S.
  • The Su-35S is one of the few, if not only, aircraft where the front wheel is lower than the back wheels.
  • In Assault Horizon mission 8: Pipeline, Markov's Su-35S appears and drops a Trinity missile which means that the PAK-FA is not the only aircraft able to carry an EW1. However the Trinity missile cannot be used by the player with the Su-35S.
