- "If you're looking for a very capable, reasonable Flanker at a great price, here it is. Well, of course I'm serious..."
- ―Harry's description of this plane in the shop.
The Shenyang J-11 (NATO reporting name of "Flanker-L") is a Chinese variation of the Sukhoi Su-27. Originally proposed as a variation of the MiG-19 Farmer that was cancelled, it was revived in the 1990s as a modification of the Su-27. The aircraft has had a bevy of controversy surrounding it, including allegations of later versions of the craft being "unlicensed", along with other issues. This aircraft only appears in Airforce Delta Strike, as a game-completion unlock for Ruth Valentine.
On the outset, there are very few differences in raw design between the J-11 and the Flanker. The design is nigh-identical in the games.
It's literally just John's Su-27SMK with some slight stat alterations. The J-11 has improved thrust compared to the Su-27SMK, but marginally worse defenses. It's... Practically the same plane. The only difference is this thing is tied to game completion. It's arguably one of the best game-completion unlocks in the game, and that's kind of sad. Not bad, not bad...
