So Makar, the executing signed in March 2012 a contract to supply the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation 30 Su-30cm. By purchasing these modern double fighters in the Air Force is calculated not only to increment its combat power, and prepare pilots for development of aircraft fifth generation.
"We Su-30cm at times increased fighting ability in the detection and destruction of targets, with not one, but several at once. Potential of the 1st plane is comparable to that of the potential 2-planes of the previous generation. Was not in vain pilots of Indian Air Force Sou-30MKI air combat training win at the U.S. Air Force pilots, "- said Harchevsky.
