Belarus will buy used in India fighter Su-30K

Belarus will buy used in India fighter Su-30K Minsk intends to acquire 18 Russian fighters that were delivered to India under 90's contracts. The aircraft will be upgraded at the plant in Baranovichi and will go into service with the local Air Force.


Russia and India signed a contract for the supply of fighters back in 1996, reminds Kommersant. However, at that time Moscow was not able to provide the contracted planes of the “advanced” configuration - Su 30-MKI. It was decided to put the first 18 machines in a simplified version - Su-30K, and later to replace them with the same number of "advanced" aircraft, returning the Su-30K back to Russia.

According to newspaper sources, used planes in India are being prepared for shipment to Belarus. There, at the 558 aircraft repair plant in Baranavichy, there are already 10 fighters that are being transported in a disassembled state. Experts interviewed by the publication note that the technical condition of the aircraft “leaves much to be desired” and the Russian Defense Ministry is unlikely to spend money on their overhaul.

Earlier, President of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko announced his intention to buy Russian fighters for the Belarusian Air Force, but the market value of the vehicles was too heavy for the country's budget. Buying used aircraft may be particularly relevant in the light of the events of the first half of 2011. In Belarus, the economic crisis continues, which began with a currency deficit in January. According to IMF experts, the pre-election wage increase was the cause of the crisis. The Belarusian ruble exchange rate for the period from April 2011 of the year to 14 of September, when free local currency trading began, collapsed from 3000 to 8600 Belarusian rubles per dollar.

    We could supply our only ally with new dryers. Moreover, they don’t need so much!

      The idea is true and correct, but capitalist relations require you to understand mutual settlements, and Indians will buy cheaply; only engines will buy from us, and please keep Glider dry

          If Belarus (like Ukraine) became part of Russia, I would give the last shirt to you. But not everything depends on Russia while you are not with us ...

      We all clearly see the consequences of delivering products at a reduced price to "our ally." Belarusians themselves must spin. But military assistance can be provided through actions

      I mean gas to Ukraine, for those who have a poor understanding

    Well done, Old Man, takes every opportunity to arm his army. It turns out that in Belarus the SU-30 will be more than in Russia.

      I am sure that Belarusians will be able to modernize these Su - to the modern version -

      For example, we also had outdated Su 27s - and they were modernized under a 2007 contract with the Belarusian side

      Here is an excerpt
      The Kazakh Air Force modernized the Su-27 and Su-27UB fighters to the Su-27M2 and Su-27UBM2 versions, TsAMTO reports citing the Jane's International Defense Review. Aircraft modernization was carried out at the Belarusian aircraft repair plant in the city of Baranovichi

    It is necessary to unite. It’s her, it’s time to unite, the international space is getting hotter and hotter. That's just Old Man will not go for it ... Putin would go, provided that the Old Man will not run. And Old Man will not unite until the fried rooster completely bites. He took power in 1994 and is not going to give. Oh, so sorry. And it will not be necessary to maneuver in the oceans with the sole purpose of surviving.

    Of course, the young man is a youngster, who cares about the armed forces, but the miser pays twice ...
    Could agree with ours, I think. 18 modern aircraft from Belarus - it is almost the same as the 18 we have.

    The old man would surely have passed for president. Well, as for the purchase of scrap metal from the Indians, it seems to me that Belarusians don’t want to do business with our rednecks, because they know that such friends and pennies will not be thrown off. Old man for president!

    As they don’t want him, Lukashenko is a young man. He will raise the Republic. Let the Belarusians respond, maybe we don’t know?
