Su-30SM Delivered

Su-30SM Delivered 13 November, 2019

Belarus received the first two of its 12 Su-30SM multi-generation combat aircraft today. "Under the defence procurement plan, Su-30SM multirole fighters will be delivered. Two fighters are expected to land at the Baranovichi aerodrome tomorrow afternoon." Belarusian Defence Minister Andrei Ravkov was quoted by the BelTA news agency, on Tuesday. The agreement for the dozen Sukhoi jets to replace old MiG-29 fighters was signed in 2017. Two more jets are expected to be shipped to the country by the end of 2019.

The aircraft carries the Bars all-weather multifunction fire control radar and a wide array of weapons, including air-to-air missiles and air-to-surface precision-guided weapons.
