MOSCOW, January 25 (Itar-Tass) — Five new Su-34 tactical bombers took off from the airfield of the Novosibirsk-based Chkalov aircraft-making plant on Friday for an air base in Voronezh in central European Russia, the press service of the Sukhoi company reported.

Specialists from the Voronezh air base have been checking these jets at the Novosibirsk-based plant since January 15. On Thursday, January 24, they performed test flights.

The first batch of five Su-34 bombers arrived at Voronezh’s Baltimore airfield on December 25, 2012. These five jets plus the five that are to arrive on Friday will make up the second Su-34 squadron in Russia’s Western military district. The first squadron was formed of ten Su-34 bombers that had arrived here before December 2011.

State contracts for large-scale batches of Su-34 bombers for the Russian defence ministry were signed in 2008 and 2012.
