This is A Japanese Airline 767. It is matte, not covered in chrome, making it look more realistic (except for those planes with chrome :P ) . Also, There are edited landing gear and turbines, making it look more realistic. I have permission from Box5diesel to release this skin.
This is the RoR version .36 update. It now makes use of the new hydros in order to achieve thrust vectoring and I have done some performance tweaks.
Pilots beware: This plane is very powerful and very agile. Be light on the controls and careful with the throttle unless you want it flipping end from end and ripping your own wings off. Of course, if you want to go around doing insane acrobatics like those ( it honestly is a lot of fun ) then ignore this warning.
The Sukhoi SU_37 "Flanker-F" is a solid turbojet driven acrobatic fighter craft. Due to the vectored thrust system she remains under the control of the pilot even at extremely low speeds.
Version 2.0 is a complete overhaul of the SU-37 Flanker plane. It's now more stable, faster, more agile and better looking than ever. It now features meshwheels and a flexbody mesh, all using the full potential of the new and improved shading abilities of RoR, to make the plane look as pretty as possible. Like it's real life counterpart it features vectored thrust which means that you are still under controll of your plane even when it has stalled. A definite plus when attempting acrobatic flying.
With the improved flight characteristics it is easier to fly at high and low speeds than ever, making it more pleasant to fly for experienced pilots and easier to get started on for new ones. Share and enjoy!

- Some minor tweaks to the balance of the plane, trimming some fat, etc.
- A smoke trail system for when you are doing acrobatics.
- Rigidifiers applied for added stability.
- Material file fixed.
- New 'mini' picture.
- The ability for the vectored thrusters to also work as elevators. To enable this you will need to map the commands 47 to UP and 48 to DOWN ( on the standard RoR controll layout ).
This is RC 1.0 of the SU-37 model I have been working on.
It flies quite well and is extremely agile, even at high speeds and very low speeds ( be carefull when steering, it is quite easy to oversteer and stall her ). She can be quite unstable at low speeds, I blame the canards and her heavy tail.
She's still quite fragile so care must be exersized when landing.
In flight she is quite solid, the wings will remain rigid even at high speeds.
The skin isn't much to look at at the moment, it would be greatly appreciated if someone could lend a hand in that because it is definitely not my skill.
Of course the main feature would be her twin vectored thrust jets which aid amazingly in low speed maneuvering. As of now they only support rolling of the jet due to limitations of the Hydros.
This is the new version of the Flanker, wich considerably improved performance over it's predecessor and some reasonable graphical updates.
Vectored thrust allows you to controll your plane even during a stall and during acrobatic flying. It's powerfull engines allow you to accelerate rapidly to it's cruse speed of 500 knots and with afterburners supersonic speeds can be attained, and because of it's stability and it's responsiveness to pilot input it is a very easy plane to fly.
Check out the forum for development updates, tips tricks and the upcoming flight tutorial. If you have any advice, comments or complains please do not hesitate to post because I am continuing to develop and update the Flanker.
It has fully retractable landing gear, front landing lights, working wing lights, cockpit view with illuminated gauges, airbrakes. And hopefully everyone enjoys the way it flys. It weighs around 108 ton.
To take off - Set flaps to full, and full throttle with one click back on the throttle so you dont engage the afterburners (which I cant turn off in .35, so just dont fly at full throttle). You should be able to take off on any of the runways in the game. Landing on the other hand is very tough on the small runways, but im going to continue to work on the plane, to make it better in .36.
