Venezuela will purchase twelve Su-30 in Russia

Venezuelan authorities have allocated $ 480 million for the purchase of 12 Russian Su-30 fighter jets in order to strengthen the domestic Air Force, reports MIC With reference to the head of the Ministry of Defense of the country Vladimir Padrino.




“The President of the country (Nicolas Maduro) gave the go-ahead to allocate 480 million dollars so that Su's aircraft could continue to defend Venezuelan airspace,” said Padrino.

He noted that "the authorities consider it important, along with the expansion of efforts aimed at improving such areas as health care and education, also to continue strengthening the republic’s defense capability."

The Minister stressed:
"Despite the sharp drop in world oil prices and the economic war against our country, the president is aware of the need for the armed forces to be provided (necessary) to fulfill the mission that they are prescribed by the constitution."


According to him, the Venezuelan Air Force currently has 23 Su-30 aircraft, and the new machines will significantly strengthen the existing fleet.

      The main thing is that Venezuela "allocate" this money not from our own targeted loans.

        You look! Venezuela is still alive and even very alive, since it purchases as much as half a lard. There was a rumor that, with a drop in oil prices, it ordered a long life (in the economic sense).

      Mattresses imposed sanctions against Venezuela, banning the sale of spare parts for the F-16 to the country, and they quickly found a way out of the situation by selling American planes and purchasing ours)

    It is necessary to sell, of course, but do not forget about our army.

      The Irkutsk Aviation Plant, part of Irkut Corporation PJSC, transferred to the Russian Aerospace Forces the next pair of Su-30SM multifunctional two-seat super-maneuverable fighters. The aircraft are designed for the 31st fighter aviation regiment stationed at the Millerovo airfield (Rostov Region). Today, the fighters left the plant and went to the place of basing.
      Thus, the number of Su-30SM in the Russian Air Force has reached 39 pieces, another 8 Su-30SM are in service with the Naval Aviation of the Russian Navy.

      Su-35 is still hard to go in production and operation. All previously issued and transferred to the troops planes then returned to the plant for improvements: there are many problems. This aircraft will definitely not become massive in our Air Force, i.e. he will not replace the old Su-27 fleet. It will be produced in small series until 2020, until the T-50 stands on the “wing” in full growth.

    If only they would not come off later. And then they will loudly announce about their Wishlist, and then they will count the trifle and refuse.

    Something cheap, 40 million for the SU-30. They come at almost that price, or again the “friendship of the peoples” to their detriment. Moreover, something not so strong is our “strategic” partner who in some cases suits us .
