Did the Fullback make a play in South Ossetia or not? Perhaps we will never know - but rumor is good enough for me; Besides I find this bird to be quite attractive. ^_^

@Edward - well, english wiki page says "rumored", but russian wiki states quite positively using two SU-34 (№01 and №46 according to vitnesses) for EW, and also using anti-radiation missile to destroy a certain key radar.
Though, yes... A lot of confusion in this Age of Information

Thank you for confirming the rumors based on the Russian wiki, which obviously, the English wiki was lacking! I am really looking forward to this project now!

destroyed radar and three "red star" markings on №46 after the conflict.
Besides the usual confusion when both sides are bragging about or covering usage or losses of armour and weaponry, the mess about SU-34 of that time is based, as I see it, on the fact that there was no battle-ready those planes then, only two birds undergoing test flights. Both went to war, piloted by test pilots, because there were no prepared battle pilots for the modification. So a lot of usual "test-time" problems occured in battle environment, wich they obviously don't want to shout about.

I see, I found a good picture of 01, still looking for 46 - I'm finding every other 40-odd numbered Fullback though! Haha...

Wow, thank you! Saved, archived and will be the subject of my build when I get the kit, accessory set and decal pattern to print. Once more thank you very much!

Perfect!! Seems you are as excited for this project as I! Should you plan to build No.46 yourself too??

@Edward - surprisingly, it feels good just helping on a subject you simply have somewhat easier access to information about!
I'm actually not into the modern aviation, but it swallows you sooo fast...
I'm actually waiting for my SU-27SM to arrive shortly, bought it simply because it's a really great new kit, and because it was a SALE! for Zvezda at the moment..
Quite enough the reasons for any modeller, right?

Yes, very right! The quality of Eastern Europe kits has improved so much in the past 20 years!
I am happy to have had your' assistance in solving the riddle of the Sukhoi Su-34 seeing combat. I can hardly wait to get the reports that the PAK FA has drawn first blood ... just hopefully not American blood! Haha!
