"What's with this guy? That's an Su-30."
― An unknown pilot[1]

The Su-30SM is an upgraded version of the Su-30M2 Flanker-F2. It is a two-seater combat aircraft (role unknown) based on the Su-27 Flanker-B. It was first introduced to the series in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown.


The Federal Erusea Air Force and Erusian Air and Space Administration officially used Su-30SMs, the extent of which is currently unclear.

It is not currently known if the Su-30SM is available to the player.



  • The orange tails and outer wings on the Erusean Su-30SMs resemble those of the QF-4 and QF-16, which were used by the USAF as remote-controlled target drones.
    • This, along with an Osean pilot's observation in the Gamescom 2017 trailer, likely hints that the EASA uses one or more of their Su-30SMs as a testbed. The extent of which still remains unknown.
