Appearance (except widened nose, canards and enlarged 'sting') is similar to other aircraft the Su-27. Aircraft has twin wheel main landing gear. Fixed air intakes limit maximum Mach number, but allow to accommodate larger landing gear. Wing and fuselage structure is strengthened.

Cockpit canopy is used only for emergency ejection (0-0 K-36DM seat)and service access, while crew members use nosewheel 'well' as an entrance. Monolithic armor shell provides enough room for crew to exercise, accommodate small 'kitchen' and even lavatory.

Large tail 'sting' contains large radiotransparent section (reward-looking radar? jamming equipment?), brake parachutes and one of four fuel tanks.

VVS intends to replace all Su-24s with the Su-34.

Four hardpoints on each wing, two hardpoints on engine gondolas and two ventral centerline hardpoints can carry wide variety of armament for ground strike and air-to-air combat (see below). Su-34 is equipped with in-flight refueling system (night refueling is possible).
