    A breath-taking video of Russia's super-maneuverable multirole Su-35S fighter jet has been released by the country's Defense Ministry.

    The Russian Defense Ministry has published a jaw-dropping video of the state-of-the-art multirole Su-35S fighter jet on its YouTube channel.

    The Su-35S's super-maneuverability is provided by a new engine with thrust vector control, which allows the aircraft to reach supersonic speeds without using afterburners.

    Defined as a Generation 4++ fighter, the Su-35S is capable of flying at a speed of up to 2,400 kilometers per hour and ascending to a height of 20,000 meters.

    The plane's maximum range stands at 3,600 kilometers, and with an additional fuel tank the figure can be increased by 900 kilometers. Notably, the Su-35S was developed with the help of high technology used in the creation of Russia's fifth generation aircraft, the T-50 PAK FA.

    Last year, the German magazine Stern said that it is the Su-35S, not the fifth-generation US F-22 warplane, that can be considered the world's deadliest fighter jet.
