IRKUTSK, September 7. /TASS/. Russia’s Defense Ministry plans to sign a new three-year contract with the country’s Irkut corporation for the delivery of new Su-30SM fighter jets, Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov told reporters on Monday.
"We are working on a new three-year contract. It is for some 20 or 25 Su-30SM aircraft per year," he said. The document may be signed by the year-end when "the parameters of the 2016 budget will be defined."
Earlier on Monday, Russia’s Defence Ministry and the Irkut corporation inked a contract for the delivery of eight multirole Su-30SM fighter jets up to 2017, Borisov said.
The current contracts imply the delivery of 60 multirole Su-30SM fighter jets and 55 Yak-130 trainer aircraft for the Russian Armed Forces, the press service of the Russian manufacturer has said.
