MOSCOW, December 12. /TASS/. Three newly-manufactured Sukhoi-30SM fighter jets have been delivered to the Black Sea Fleet’s aviation group, the fleet’s press-secretary Vyacheslav Trukhachyov said on Monday.
The planes have already arrived at their permanent base Saki in Crimea.
"The planes were manufactured at the Irkutsk Aircraft-Building Plant and handed over to the Black Sea Fleet under a program for upgrading its aviation group. Upon completing a long flight the jets joined a separate air assault regiment of the Black Sea Fleet," Trukhachev said.
The Sukhoi-30SM crews earlier underwent training at a center in Yeisk.
The Sukhoi-30SM is a generation 4++ highly-maneuverable multi-role fighter. The Black Sea Fleet has been using them since 2015.
