Belarus: the first two Su-30Sm aircraft from Russia tomorrow

They will arrive in the afternoon at the base of Baranovichi

Belarus will receive on November 13 the first two Su-30SM aircraft from Russia (see AVIONEWS). According to the contractual agreements established in 2017 with the Moscow-based company Irkut Corporation, 12 fighters will be delivered to Minsk by 2020.

The communication was announced today by the Belarusian Defense Minister and General Andrei Alekseevich Ravkov who said: "According to the procurement plan the planes will land at the Baranovichi base tomorrow afternoon".

The Sukhoi Su-30 is a multirole aircraft based on the Su-27UB which is similar in size and shape, so as to be practically indistinguishable from the latter (they are in fact both named "Flanker" C by NATO). It is a super maneuverable two-seater combat airplane, developed by the homonymous Russian production company.
