Venezuelan President Nicolas inaugurated a full-scale simulator of the Su-30МK2 aircraft delivered and mounted by the Sukhoi Company under the contract previously signed between Rosoboronexport and CAVIM (Venezuelan Company of Military Industries).
The opening ceremony of the full-scale simulator in the city of Barcelona today was attended by the Minister of Defense of Venezuela Vladimir Padrino Lopez and representatives of the Federal Service Military-Technical Cooperation of Russia, a Rosoboronexport statement said.
