Myanmar plans to buy six Su-30 fighters


We believe that the Su-30 will become the main combat fighter of the Air Force of Myanmar to protect the territorial integrity of the country and repel terrorist threats
- said A.Fomin, adding that any questions that will arise from the Myanmar side in the implementation of the contract for the supply of these machines, Russia is ready to quickly resolve on a contractual and friendly basis

As stated by Fomin, the Russian weapon is already in service with Myanmar and has very well established itself in the service in the Armed Forces of the country

These are, in particular, Mi-24, Mi-35 and Mi-17 helicopters, as well as MiG-29 fighter jets, training Yak-130 aircraft, Pechora-2 anti-aircraft missile systems, other equipment
- noted the Deputy Minister of Defense.

According to him, more than 600 Myanmar military personnel are trained in Russian military high schools.

        Duc ... they are the same "neighbors" with China as Vietnam or India. In Myanmar, in the areas bordering China (populated by ethnic Chinese), there is a full-scale war with the Chinese-backed troops of the Myanmar National Democratic Alliance. In March 2015, it came to shelling and bombing of Chinese territory.

    And who said that military equipment is a loss ... It all depends on HOW TO PRODUCT A FACE TO SHOW.

    More than 600 Myanmar troops undergo training at Russian military universities
    But this is good. People will advance through the ranks, occupy high posts, which always has a future perspective.
