Originally this plane was part of Lock On: Flaming Cliffs 3, but now all planes of FC3 (F-15C, A-10A, Su-27, Su-33, MiG-29, and Su-25) are sold separately for DCS World, with the same title format: "name for DCS World", while all true to life sims specifically developed for DCS World are sold with title format "DCS: name"
