Malaysian Sukhoi-30MKM fighter jets will soon be armed with Russian missiles, Ria Novosti reported Tuesday.

The missiles will be manufactured by Irkut Corporation. "We are currently providing after-sales service for Su-30MKM, fighters, including the supply of all necessary spare parts and repair services, as well as the supply of aircraft munitions," Vladimir Ereschenko, Rosoboronexport delegation Incharge at the LIMA-2015 exhibition, was quoted as saying during an interview by the news agency.

Malaysia had signed a $900 million contract with Irkut for delivering 18 Su-30MKM in August 2003. All the jets were delivered by 2011.

The Su-30MKM, designed specifically for Malaysia's Royal Air Force, is armed with several air-to-air and air-to-surface missiles with ranges of about 75 miles.
