The Air Force of Kazakhstan continues to increase the number of Russian multipurpose Su-30SM fighters

The Air Force of Kazakhstan continues to increase the number of Russian multipurpose Su-30SM fighters. According to the Kazakh military department, another batch of aircraft arrived in the republic.


A flight of multipurpose Su-30SM landed at Karaganda aviation base named after the hero of the Soviet Union Nurken Abdirov, having made a flight from Irkutsk. The transfer of fighters from the Irkutsk aircraft plant was carried out by Russian pilots.

At the airbase, a solemn meeting was held for Russian fighters, which was attended by the Minister of Defense of Kazakhstan, Lieutenant General Nurlan Yermekbayev and the Commander-in-Chief of the Air Defense Forces of Kazakhstan, Lieutenant General of Aviation Nurlan Ormanbetov.

The Su-30SM will significantly increase the ability to cover troops and objects from air attacks, detect and destroy air and ground targets. Thanks to them, the combat potential of the Armed Forces will increase

- said the Commander-in-Chief of the Air Defense Forces, Aviation Lieutenant General Nurlan Ormanbetov.

The previous batch of Su-30SM fighters, also in the amount of 4 pieces, arrived at the Karaganda airbase in early November this year. Taking into account the newly arrived aircraft, the number of Su-30SM in the Air Force of Kazakhstan has reached 24 units. Earlier, 16 Su-30SM received the 604th air base of the NWO of Kazakhstan in Taldy-Kurgan.

As explained in the Ministry of Defense of the Republic, the Su-30SM fighters enter the Air Force under an agreement with the Russian Federation and the program for rearmament of the Armed Forces of Kazakhstan. Aircraft deliveries began in 2015. In total, the Ministry of Defense of Kazakhstan plans to purchase 36 super-maneuverable Su-30SM fighters.

      Probably because someone does not want to turn from a country into a Chinese province. That's why they don't lay all their eggs in one box.

          Unfortunately, you are right, colleague. And there are also Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan nearby, where the replacement of everything Russian, including B and BT, is simply by leaps and bounds. Chinese, Turkish, Israeli, European and American "goods". We are losing Central Asia.

      why else are our su

      Because they are head and shoulders above the Chinese trash, in terms of price / quality ratio they are superior to Western fighters. Israel and France have ready-made modernization options.
      Kazakhstan buys the best on the market, the CSTO is a priority.

        Do not underestimate China so much. To say that the Su-30s are now completely superior to the same J-20 fighters of the 5th generation is not entirely true to put it mildly.

      China itself flies on our planes. What will they sell ?! A copy of a Russian plane, and even on a Russian engine?

      It's easier and cheaper to buy the original.

        This is a heavy fighter and is necessary for countries with a large territory (RF, RK), the Air Force of the Republic of Belarus and Armenia, it is unnecessary from the word at all ... if only during the threatened period they do not come under the command of the Russian Aerospace Forces ...

          This is a single standard for the military bloc. For the same NATO countries, basically, Form 35 is also not needed, but uniform logistics, interaction and training in united formations - this seriously simplifies interaction.
          And as for Armenia, if they had applied su30cm, then the bayraktars simply would not have been able to do anything. And if the Armenians had received all the planes by that time, then 3 flights. One is patrolling the TVD, the second is in readiness at the airfield, the third is resting. And the air would be behind the Armenians. In the event of the arrival of enemy fighters, the second flight takes off and goes to support the first. Su30 cm were not just not useless, but just an antidote against serious enemy UAVs. But the Armenian MoD merged Artsakh at the direction of the political leadership and did not use the main forces. request

            And as for Armenia, if they used su30cm
            then Azerbaijan would use air defense, they have it quite modern and echeloned, in the end they would knock down all available su30 and continue what they started, therefore they did not use su30

              It would be enough to damage the runway and taxiways at the airfield (according to the VICI) (jointly based) in Shirak, according to the VICI, all the combat aircraft of the Armenian Air Force are based there ...

            "... But the Armenian MoD merged Artsakh at the direction of the political leadership and did not use the main forces."
            There is a legal point here, Azerbaijan, as it were, did not attack Armenia itself, and NCO or Artsakh (as it is convenient for anyone) is not recognized by Armenia itself. Therefore, as soon as the Su-30SM was activated, Turkey would immediately turn on with all the consequences for Armenia itself and the CSTO.

              And what are the consequences for Armenia and especially for the CSTO?
              In the best case, they would bring down the "drying" over Azerbaijan and that's it ...
              .... do not consider the Turks idiots, in the past conflict all parties had their own clearly assigned role, where the text of the "play" could only be changed by the Russian Federation ...
              .... after the end of the conflict, the fate of Pashinyan now depends only on the United States ... but it is not profitable for Turkey, the Russian Federation, and even more so for Azerbaijan, that Pashinyan was hanged on a lantern ... the second part of the play is ahead ...
              The Russian Federation received a second World Bank in the South Caucasus (and now it will never be closed), Azerbaijan returned its districts around NPOs and even a part of NPOs, Turkey has increased its influence in the region politically (which will add points to Erdogan, both within the country and in the eyes of the empiricalists, including the EU), the US will continue to pursue an anti-Russian policy in Armenia and keep Pashinyan in power, the Armenian diasporas abroad and Armenians in Armenia will say that due to the "transience" of the conflict they did not have time to go to war and they will have to "unpack" the "emergency cases" ....

        There is an opinion that the MiG-i will be transferred to Russia for further modernization under the modification K. Exchange is possible, offset is possible.

    The Su-30SM is the best option for Kazakhstan in terms of price-performance ratio.

    Alternative F-15/16/18 will cost a pretty penny.

    Won Bulgaria bought 1,2 F-8s for $ 16 billion. One comes out at 150 million dollars. It is clear that this is with retraining and some kind of weaponry, but 36 F-16s would cost 5,4 billion dollars. well, maybe a little cheaper.

    And 36 Su-30SM cost Kazakhstan at the domestic Russian price somewhere in 50 million per unit, only 2 billion dollars.

    And with retraining it is easier to switch from Su-27 to Su-30SM.

    And this is with the greater range, speed and maneuverability of the Su-30SM than the American F-15/16/18.

    Maneuverability and speed are now more relevant than ever and they are needed not for close combat, as "experts" shout from the Internet and corrupt pro-media media, but for an anti-missile maneuver. An example is the conflict between India and Pakistan, Sushki were able to get away from the missile attack, and the MiG-21 could not and was shot down.

    Well, Russia also benefits, they received money for the aircraft they made, which will allow the company to develop and improve its products.

    This deal is an example of profitable cooperation in the CIS.
