The built-in laser range-finder ensures efficient employment of high-precision weapons. The radar mapping of ground (water) surface and target tracking provide pre-launch target designation and employment of missiles and air bombs in any weather, day and night. The high-performance ECM equipment is installed on fighter to destroy the hostile radars by anti-radiation missiles . The navigation system provides high-accuracy navigation in all stages of flight. The cockpit instrumentation facilitates the pilot to operate effectively using a combination of the large-size colour LC multifunctional displays. The in-flight refuelling system enables to increase the fighter's flight endurance/combat radius, restricted by physical ability of a pilot.
