Siberia has received the fourth generation Russian fighter jets, Su-30SM, the latest development of the twin-seat Su-30 jet fighter family, itself a derivative of the long-serving single-seat Sukhoi Su-27.

The Domna air base is to get 10 such aircraft by the end of the year. Ten more will be provided next year in order to establish an aviation regiment equipped only with the newest Russian fighter jets.

The Su-30SM can detect enemy aircraft at a distance of more than 100 kilometers (60 miles).

The new aircraft has better radar and communications capabilities, an improved friend-or-foe system, a new ejection seat and new weapons.
