IFX-35 ECR Cygnus - Artic Tiger by haryopanji IFX-35 ECR Cygnus - Artic Tiger by haryopanji
The Cygnus is a family of twin Hybrid Pulse Detonation - Afterburning Turbofans engine multi-role mild stealth aircraft.

There are three primary variants of the German's Cygnus; the Cygnus IDS (interdictor/strike) fighter-bomber, the suppression of enemy air defences - the Cygnus ECR (electronic combat/reconnaissance), and the Cygnus ADF (air defence variant) interceptor.

The Cygnus was developed and built by Sentry Alliance, a tri-national consortium consisting of Airtech (previously IPTN), EADS (previously MBB of Germany), and Sukhoi of Russian. Due to its multirole nature, it was able to replace several different fleets of aircraft in the adopting air forces.

your German jet designs in particular have been really awesome, but have you ever done a naval aircraft design yet?

You really should think on changing the NATO designation for this, unless it's the actual name given to it by Sukhoi. F is reserved for fighters. C is reserved for cargo aircraft. A more fitting NATO designation might be 'Fletcher'.

There is 2 Russian variants actually, please check it out:

Thanks for the info, by the way!
