Belarus Likely To Receive First Four Su-30SM Fighters In 2019

Russia is expected to make first delivery of four Su-30SM fighter aircraft to Belarus this year, according to a report by Belarusian Telegraph agency (BelTA).

“In line with the contract, the first lot of Su-30SM aircraft will be delivered in 2019. The lot consists of four aircraft,” BelTA learned from the press service of the Belarusian Defense Ministry.

The deliveries to the ordered Russian aircraft were scheduled to begin last year, but owning to the technical changes in the aircraft’s equipment set, the deliveries were postponed.

Belarus is expected to receive 12 two-seat fighters from Russia equipped with phased-array radar, frontal horizontal fins and steerable thrusters for supermaneuverability as well as with wide-angle HUD, according to the Russian news agency Interfax.  The new aircraft will replace the outdated Mikoyan MiG-29 fighters.

The Su-30SM multirole fighter is the further development of the Su-30MK combat aircraft family. The fighter was designed in accordance with the requirements of the Russian Air Force in terms of radar system, radio and recognition system, weapon structure, ejection seats and a number support systems.
