For what purpose?

The book you need is this:

"Su-27 Fighter: Beginning of Story" by Ildar Bedretdinov et al.

It has full details and drawings of every variant studied up to the T-10 prototype in exhaustive detail. The second volume (not out in English yet) covers the rest of the story.

T10-6 looks pretty interesting considering what Sukhoi supposedly thought about the North American FX entry. (That it was better than McDonnell Douglas' F-15.)

Thanks for all the illustrations of the various studies. Amusing to watch how Sukhoi engineers struggled to keep the aft fuselage shallow between two massive engine nacelles.

Very interesting to hear sferrin!
Could you be so kind as to refer me where I can find/read Sukhoi's comment/analysis re the NAA 'FX' design?
As a fan of the Fairchild-Republic FX design submission, I would liked to have gotten his opinion/take on this design!

Regards
Pioneer

There is a brief mention in Oleg Samolovich's memoirs "Next To Sukhoi" (only published in Russian) where he says that, apparently, when McDonnell-Douglas 199 won the F-X contest over "Northrop" (I assume he meant "North American") Sukhoi was heartened as it meant they had a chance to beat the US, implying they felt the other design was better, and it was certainly more simllar to the early Su-27.
