Russia’s Sukhoi Design Bureau unveiled its new Su-37 fighter on July 31. Described by a Russian air force spokesman as a warplane for the next century, the aircraft reportedly boasts reversible thrusters that greatly enhance its maneuverability. Russian sources claim that the plane is without equal in the world and that they expect it to dominate arms markets for many years to come. They are unable, however, to say when the aircraft will be ready for serial production. (Interfax, July 31, Itar-Tass, August 1)
