    This is the main thing. The fighter is a pity, of course, but the plane doesn't crash unless it's flying.

      This is true. I think all the information has been preserved about the technique (SOC) will understand the reasons.

      It is true that the main thing was left alive. I will not say about an accident, because any plane can crash, but simply about the choice of Kazakhstan.
      I'm wondering if there is such a thing that a CSTO member is obliged to buy fighters only in Russia? Judging by the CM version, it is very similar to this.
      Otherwise, they would buy from developed countries, such as the United States or Europe, and the aircraft there are much more technologically advanced, and weapons for them, not to mention additional on-board systems, etc., and there are no restrictions on the sale of such weapons to Kazakhstan. Secondly, the country in the CIS is the second in terms of "pumping" oil, that is, the state has a lot of money.
      On the downside, of course, do not care, the truth has always been disliked here. But with the SU-30, the Kazakhs were very wrong, with their money. Or they are simply afraid of Russia to "escalate" in order to take fighters from someone else. Kmk second option is closer to the truth, or a combination of both reasons.

        Su-30SM is an excellent fighter, one of the best in its class. Ideal for Kazakhstan. Advantages of the Soviet school of aircraft construction + Western (mainly French) avionics. CSTO members can buy weapons from anyone. What they are doing.
        Kazakhstan buys weapons and equipment very carefully.

          Ships (RTOs) Russian - analogues in European countries are more technologically advanced and preferable, T-72 B3 tanks, aircraft, and much more. I understand when there are embargoes and restrictions from the west, but here everything is open to them, even the entire Chinese market.
          Only a strike UAV was bought from China, a WingLong of some kind, and that was only because then Russia did not have Orion or any other strike UAV.

            Absolutely. Weapons and equipment are not bought due to the fact that they are "super duper". The purchase is made for reasons of economic, political, theater of operations, military threats, military doctrine, etc.
            Kazakhstan buy weapons and equipment from Russia, China, Turkey, South Africa, USA, Italy, etc.

                Emil Azeri, the United States even "imposed" its equipment and weapons on us, as in its time on Tashkent ... But "Your weapons are too expensive for us." The National Academy of Sciences also announced a strategy on this issue. "In the far abroad, only what is not produced in the CIS." For example. S-295, UAV, etc.
                And one more important point. We buy at domestic Russian prices. The first Su-30SM, for example, we got less than 30 million per unit. Therefore, whatever the fancy F-16, it is just a "whipping boy" for 3 Su-30SM. And this is the minimum. So with weapons, personnel training and equipment, one F-16 will cost. Or, for example, the repair of T-72, BTR-80, BMP, which takes place at our plant (we have a lot of armored vehicles from Soviet times) - and how much will one Abrams or Leopard cost with all other costs ?!
                There is one more point that matters. What will happen to our repair factories if we switch to an alternative? ... At the end of last year, the first Mi-405 of its own assembly took off from the Almaty 17 plant ... On Granite, the S-300 is being repaired in agreement with Almas-Antey ...
                Whatever one may say, it is beneficial for us to be in the CSTO.
                Although it must be admitted, a lot is becoming obsolete ... 24 - 1 = 23 Su-30SM at the moment. It's good that the pilots are alive. hi

            Kazakhstan buys weapons from Russia at domestic Russian prices as a member of the CSTO. In other words, aircraft from Russia are much cheaper for Kazakhstan than their counterparts from the West. At the same time, Russia has almost no profit from sales. In addition, the pilots of Kazakhstan do not need to retrain to Western technology.

            Azerbaijan buys weapons from Russia at prices similar to those sold elsewhere to India, Algeria or China.

            Well, maybe Turkey gives Azerbaijan some discounts on arms sales for ethnic kinship?

        Apart from the old F16s, they have no chance of anything, plus they need to rebuild the entire infrastructure and weapons, so the Su30SM is the best option for them. But your deflection is still counted)))

      If the death of one of the crew members, then this is a disaster.
      There is still a graduation by the hour, even if all the crew members were rescued, but for some reason one did not survive for 24 hours, it is considered a disaster.
