Russia showcases new fighter jet RESISTENT to radio jamming amid World War 3 fears


The Sukhoi Su-30SM is an updated version of Su-30MKI, the air superiority fighter built for the Indian Air Force by Russia's Sukhoi aircraft manufacturer.

A short clip of the super-maneuverable warplane in action shows a fleet of fighter pilots performing a series of aerobatic stunts, including the iconic Pugachev's Cobra, while firing rockets.

According to Air Force Technology, the jet can be used in counter-air strikes, counter-land and counter-sea missions, and is highly resistant to radio jamming.
