      1. They surely are. And it’s a big aircraft too. 21.9 metres long, and 23,430 kg of loaded weight, with 56% internal fuel compared to the MiG-29 at 17.37 metres long and 15,300 kg of loaded weight. That’s a lot of aircraft to get off the deck of the Kuznetsov!

      2. I believe the Flanker has a so-called combat internal fuel tank in that fuel is only put in there if it is going in to combat or is being ferried to a new base. The reason being that when the tank is full its performance deteriorates. As for the Su-33 I believe that the MiG-29K can actually take off with a higher warload. One could argue the 29 makes the better carrier aircraft due to its smaller dimensions and sturdier airframe
