The first pair of Russian-made Su-30SM multirole fighters purchased by Armenia at the beginning of 2019 landed at an aerodrome in Southern Caucasus republic, Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan announced on his Facebook page on Friday.
“Our most important acquisition this year,” Pashinyan noted, demonstrating the delivered aircraft to his subscribers.
The Armenian authorities announced in early 2019 that they had acquired four Su-30SM multirole fighters from Russia.
The Su-30SM is a generation 4++ serial-produced and upgraded two-seat super-maneuverable fighter jet. The Su-30SM is furnished with two AL-31FP thrust-vectoring reheated double-flow turbofan engines.
The fighter has an operating range of 1,500 km and a flight endurance of 3.5 hours without refueling.
