Story Highlights
  • The Su-30, Su-34, and Su-35 are the mainstays of the Russian Aerospace Forces and are members of the Sukhoi family.
  • According to the Russian Ministry of Defense these have the capability to effectively intercept air targets and also attack military installations with precision-guided weapons from low

In light of the ongoing crisis between Russia and Ukraine, Rosoboronexport of Russia is prepared to provide more fully assembled kits for the Su-30MKI’s assembly under the “Make in India” initiative. The Russian export agency is also prepared to collaborate in modernising the Su-30 MKI, including the integration of cutting-edge air weaponry, avionics, etc.

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, a state-owned enterprise, manufactures the Su-30 MKI, the mainstay of the Indian Air Force, in India under licence (HAL). Additionally, the Russian corporation is engaged in expanding technological cooperation in a wide range of fields as part of the already existing portfolio of aviation projects.

The Su-27 fighter prototype, created by the Sukhoi Experimental Design Bureau, made its first flight 45 years ago in 2022. As a result, the Su-27/Su-30 fighter jet family was born.

Pavel Osipovich Sukhoi and his Design Bureau team directly designed the aircraft. The Sukhoi brand became a worldwide hit because to the technical breakthrough he and his team were able to achieve.

This fighter jet has reportedly become one of the most sought-after fighters in the world in the twenty-first century, according to a statement from Rosoboronexport.

India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, China, Angola, Belarus, Venezuela, Vietnam, Uganda, Malaysia, and other countries are among its international clients.

The Su-30, Su-34, and Su-35 are the mainstays of the Russian Aerospace Forces and are members of the Sukhoi family. These fighter jets have successfully completed a number of significant missions under challenging circumstances.

“Air superiority is a critical aspect in any fight,” asserts Vladimir Artyakov, First Deputy Director General of Rostec State Corporation. “That is why we pay considerable attention to building new advanced platforms.”

“The Su-27 had once become a technologically groundbreaking machine and the progenitor of an entire family of great aeroplanes,” the author continued.

For Exports

Global air forces can purchase Su-30SME, Su-34E, and Su-35 4+/4++ generation aircraft from exporters.

Approximately 700 Su-27/Su-30 combat aircraft have been delivered by the business since 2000 across the globe. And this aircraft’s avionics, engines, systems, weaponry, and components are all produced in Russia.

According to Alexander Mikheev, Director General of Rosoboronexport, “during the past ten years, the percentage of aircraft supply in Russia’s total armament exports has stood at 40-50 percent, and even exceeds this level today.”

Foreign clients can integrate locally produced air-launched weaponry and also equipment to personalise the fighters to their needs thanks to the avionics and armament systems’ open design.

Su-30SM and Su-35 aircraft

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense these have the capability to effectively intercept air targets and also attack military installations with precision-guided weapons from low, medium and high altitudes.

The Su-35 is a powerful 4++ generation aircraft system and it incorporates fifth-generation fighter technologies.

The airborne equipment enables the use of air weapons with maximum accuracy.

It has the capability to handle the entire range of fighter missions over a wide altitude and speed envelope. And because it has a large number of hard points, 12 medium-range air-to-air guided missiles or 6 air-to-surface missiles can be used in one sortie.
