MOSCOW, March 24. /TASS/. Defense contractors delivered 16 Sukhoi Su-34 fighter-bombers to Russia’s Defense Ministry in 2016, with six of them currently accomplishing missions in Syria, Commander of the 277th Bomber Regiment Alexander Gorin said in an interview with Rossiya-24 TV Channel on Friday.
"In 2016, 16 Su-34 planes were put into service. All the aircraft delivered to the regiment are performing flights as per the combat training plan," the commander said on the single military output acceptance day.
