Three new Sukhoi Su-34 fighter jets have assumed combat duty at the mixed aviation regiment stationed in Russia's Chelyabinsk region on Tuesday.

"Three new-generation Su-34 fighter jets have been delivered to the aviation regiment in accordance with the state defense order. Fighter jets flew Novosibirsk to the Shagol aerodrome in the Chelyabinsk region," Alexander Lapin, Commander of the Central Military District told TASS.

“New Su-34 fighter jets will become part of the second squadron of the mixed aviation regiment in the Chelyabinsk region,” he added.

The first of the twin-engine, twin-seat, all-weather supersonic medium-range fighter-bomber/strike aircraft assumed combat duty in the Central Military District in 2018. The second squadron will be formed by the end of the year, when three more fighter jets will assume combat duty at the mixed aviation regiment.
