The United Aircraft Corporation will sign a$1.6 billion contract with Russian Defense Ministry to deliver 48 Sukhoi Su-35 aircraft at the MAKS-2015 air show in late August.

Military expert Konstantin Makienko, who was cited by Vedomosti newspaper on Tuesday, said that the deal will be the largest one for the Russian Air Force since 2012. Russian air Force in 2012 had signed contracts for the delivery of 92 Su-34 bombers and 60 Su-30SM fighter jets.

Russia's Su-35 fighter was first introduced to a foreign audience at the 2013 Paris Air Show as a "4++ generation" heavily-upgraded derivative of the Su-27 multirole fighter.

The MAKS-2015 international aviation and space show will be held in the town of Zhukovsky near Moscow on August 25-30.
