"Russian Knights", being the only group in the world performing aerobatics on "heavy fighters", until last year performed on Su-27P and Su-27UB. In 2016, they “transferred” to new Su-30CM. The Swifts, in turn, also expect to replace the flight fleet with more modern MiG-35.
In 2004, for the first time, a joint flight of two groups took place. "Russian Knights" and "Swifts" as part of 9 aircraft (4 MiG and 5 Dryers) set a world record by making a flight in the "diamond" line with the performance of aerobatics.
