    Russia and Belarus agree Su-30 deal

    main__p1487765.jpg

    Russia has reached a preliminary agreement to supply Belarus with an undisclosed number of Sukhoi Su-30 'Flanker' combat aircraft, national media reported on 5 February.

    The Russian Deputy Minister of Defence, Major-General Igor Lotenkov, made the announcement that the Su-30s will be provided to the former Soviet republic to replace the MiG-29 'Fulcrum' fighters that it inherited at the end of the Cold War in 1991.

    The Su-30 procurement is part of a wider defence deal between Russia and Belarus that will see the latter receive modern combat aircraft in an effort to upgrade its largely Soviet-era inventory. In addition to this high-end fighter type, Belarus has also begun receiving Yakovlev Yak-130 'Mitten' advanced jet trainer/light-attack aircraft it ordered in 2012.

    We are to acquire 20 SU-30SMs from Russia to replace MiG-29s. the YAK-130s are to replace L-39s we have and the Sosna and S-400s we are to acquire will help secure our airspace.
