Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Plant named after Yury Gagarin, United Aircraft Corporation, has manufactured and delivered a next batch of new Su-35S multirole fighters to the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation.
Su-35S 4++ generation multirole fighters have passed a ground and flight test cycle in various operating conditions and have flown from KoAAP’s airfield to their duty location.
“Our aircraft manufacturers have achieved good production rates for the fighters and deliver them to Russian Aerospace Forces without any delay. This is not the last supply of the aircraft systems this year. The Su-35S is one of the main fighters in service with the Russian Army and is of well-deserved success. This supermaneuverable aircraft can fulfill a wide range of missions and can use full range of the existing and future aircraft weapons,” said Vladimir Artyakov, First Deputy General Director of Rostec.
The Su-35 is designed to seize control of airspace, destroy ground and surface targets in day and night time in favorable and severe weather conditions at long distances from the home airfield and is a transition to the fifth generation aircraft.
