Yeah, it's like watching an X-wing.  Would love to see it knife fight another aircraft.

 

Plus, I've been reading about the Su-35's BVR abilities.  And they're pretty impressive.  One website talks about the Russian philosophy regarding missile salvos.

They pack eight to twelve BVR missiles to the Su-35, and then ripple fire them at the target.  Even if the target is taking evasive, that target must now jam, decoy or outmaneuver three or four tightly spaced missiles at once.
