IRKUTSK, September 11. /TASS/. Russia and Algeria have signed contract details for 14 Sukhoi Su-30MKA (NATO reporting name: Flanker) multirole fighters, Rostec state corporation Director General Sergey Chemezov said on Friday.
"The contract has been signed. Fourteen planes will be delivered to Algeria in 2016-17," he said on a visit to Irkutsk Aircraft Plant in Siberia. Forty-four aircraft of the same type had already been received by the North African state, he said.
Eight Su-30SM multirole fighters will be made for Russia's Defense Ministry by 2017, destined for service with the air arm of Russia's navy. Sixty of these jets and 55 Yak-130 combat trainers will be built for the ministry between 2011 and 2016.
A three-year contract will be awarded to the manufacturer before the year-end. This will build 60-75 Su-30SM fighters, with 20-25 aircraft expected to leave the production line annually, according to Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov.
This will be signed "after the 2016 budget has been decided and the amount of financing is crystal clear," he added.
