The Su-34 is capable of engaging enemy targets on the ground and in the air, carrying up to eight tonnes of munitions. The Su-34 is also unique because it can stay in the air for as long as 10 hours and can refuel in the air. The Su-34 has a roomy cockpit, as well a bunk, a kitchen, and a lavatory. In Russian, the Sukhoi Su-34 is affectionately called ‘the duckling’ because of the shape of its nose.
