The Su-37 has:
- The ability to fly at very low altitudes while automatically following the contour of the ground (like the F-15E/S/I for example).
- New wing. Allows for more fuel capacity.
- A stronger landing gear.
- New electronics and hydraulics.
- Improved communication system, gives the Su-37 computers the ability to directly communicate with other Su-37's, and, potentially, with other a/c that are equipped with similar systems.
- Improved autopilot system.
- Various improvements in avionics and weapon management and guidance systems.
BTW, although the Su-35 (Su-27M) prototypes flying today are not euipped with TVC, they are part of the design. If and when they are going to enter service with any AF, they will be equipped with TVC.

Both the Su-35 and Su-37 are significantly stealthier than the Su-27. That is due to the use of special materials in their fuselages. Their radar signature is deffinetely not as small as the F-117's or the F-22's, but it is still an improvement. Especially considering the fact that the Su-37's radar can detect a large a/c from 400km (215nm) away.

Hi Slobodan! The book is called "Military Aviation". It is in Russian. It consists of two parts. It was published in 1999 by some publishing house in Minsk, Belorus (couldn't find a website). The book lists all modern military aircraft (fighters, bombers, helicopters, transport a/c, tankers etc.) and missiles. Each a/c gets a few pages dedicated to it, there is a table of data on each a/c, and most have diagrams. Quite frankly, I've found a lot of questionable information in that book, usually when it came to western a/c and technologies. It is a very good guide to modern Russian/Soviet military a/c and technologies, though. I don't know where you can get it, sorry. I'll see if I can find out.
If you want any more info on this book or for any other reason, you can email me (see my profile).
