Perhaps, we’ll hand over a couple of them next year to complete state tests, and hopefully, serial deliveries would start since 2013”, added Fedorov.State Arms Program 2011-2020 provides procurement of 28 fighters Su-30SM for Air Force and 12 same aircrafts for Navy. “We have almost settled all technical aspects with defense ministry”, said Fedorov adding that defense ministry had earlier requested all information regarding the aircraft costs.It was reported late in July 2011 that twelve Su-30SM fighters would join Black Sea Fleet aviation and replace obsolete front-line bombers Su-24 stationed at Gvardeysky air base in Crimea. Irkut plans to sign the aircraft delivery contract with Air Force in 2012. Apart from 28 Su-30SM fighters, that agreement would contain an option for other 12 aircrafts. It is planned to start Su-30SM flight tests late in 2011.[mappress]Source: rusnavy, August 22, 2011; Russia: Navy to Receive 12 Su-30SM Fighters August 22, 2011 View post tag: Naval View post tag: Navy Share this article View post tag: Fighters View post tag: News by topiccenter_img Industry news View post tag: Su-30SM View post tag: receive View post tag: Russia View post tag: 12 Back to overview,Home naval-today Russia: Navy to Receive 12 Su-30SM Fighters last_img
