Meet the Su-30SM — Russia's answer to the F-15E Strike Eagle  

Russia announced it's newest variant of the Sukhoi Su-30SM — the Su30SM1 — last month, which reportedly has enhanced weapons and electrical systems. Nevertheless, the Su-30SM1 has yet to be mass produced, and there's reportedly only one of them at the Irkutsk Aviation Plant where they're being made, according to The National Interest. Therefore Russia's most upgraded Su-30 on the market is still the Su-30SM. The Su-30SM is a versatile or multirole fighter, able

All that was needed was a catalyst to light

Two weeks into the preseason, the Chargers have drawn announced crowds of 21,000 to the Stub Hub Center, their temporary home that houses a maximum of 27,000 people.
