New 4+ Generation Sukhoi Su-30SM jet fighters have made a flight from the Irkutsk aviation plant to the Western MD to reinforce squadrons in the Kursk regions.

Pilots have completed conversion training at the Aerospace Forces Training Centre in Lipetsk and performed first flights on new fighters, and shooting from air weapons.
