MOSCOW, August 19 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s new multi-functional highly maneuverable fighter Sukhoi Su-30 SM will be for the first time presented to the public at MAKS 2013 air show in Zhukovsky, outside Moscow.
The jet has already arrived at the airfield. The press service of its manufacturer Irkutsk said that in its flight program at the air show, Su-30SM would perform a unique set of aerobatic maneuvers.
Irkutsk executes contracts for the supply of 60 Su-30SM fighters to the Defense Ministry. The first planes were delivered to the customer in 2012.
The Su-30SM fighter jet is highly maneuverable and has thrust vector control engines. Military pilots mark high possibilities of the plane for simultaneously detecting and hitting several targets both in the air and on the ground.
The two-seat plane has long-range capabilities and can be refueled in mid-air. It has a unique set of air-to-air and air-to-surface missiles. All this enables the aircraft to perform challenging combat tasks far away from its place of stationing.
