Russia to supply 12 SU-30MK2 fighter jets to Vietnam: Reports
Russia will supply Vietnam with 12 SU-30MK2 fighter jets and aviation equipment worth $1 billion, a military-diplomatic source told to a news agency. According to reports, “Last week, a contract was signed to supply Vietnam with 12 more SU-30MK2 fighter planes. The planes will be supplied in 2011 and 2012,” the source was quoted as saying. “The contract also calls for the supply of various aviation arms, equipment and parts,” the source said, putting the overall value of the deal at $1 billion. Vietnam signed a defence agreement with Russia in December during a visit by Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung to Moscow. Vietnam previously signed a contract in early 2009 to buy eight SU-30MK2 planes, according to report.
