Russia’s Airpower is still largely embroiled in the Russo-Ukraine war. Meanwhile, the entry of the Su-35S Flanker-Ms has been made in Russia’s very less known, aggressive military aircraft squadron (Aggressor Squadron). This first fighter aircraft (Su-35S Fighter Jets) was recently delivered to the Russian Air Force. This is a very advanced type of fighter aircraft playing an important role in front line service in the battlefield. This Su-35S Flanker-MS in collaboration with the Russian Aerospace Forces leaves no stone unturned to hit the enemy’s sixes.
The recent Ukraine conflict has proved that Russia is in dire need of improving the combat training capability of the VKS, or Air Force, at this time. To meet this need and purpose, the Su-35S is well suited to do. It can be expected that the induction of this fighter aircraft into the fleet of the Russian Air Force will help him a lot.
aircraft handed over to the army
More than 6 months have passed since the war between Russia and Ukraine. With the passage of time, the pressure on the Russian army seems to be decreasing. The Russian government-owned company Rostec recently delivered new Su-35s to the army. Now the concern of Ukraine has increased due to Russia getting this plane. The Russian Air Force has also suffered a lot during the fighting with Ukraine. At the same time, the experiences of the conflict with Ukraine show that Russia was in dire need of such aircraft.
The work of making Su-35s aircraft has been done at the Komsomolsk on Amur Aircraft Facility (KnAAPO) in the eastern region of Russia. Which took off on September 9 and after covering about 3,850 miles in southern Russia, the plane arrived in Privolzhsky in the Astrakhan region the next day.
The Sukhoi parent company, United Aircraft Corporation, officially announced the delivery of the three aircraft to the Russian Defense Ministry, saying it “completes the implementation in Russia of the third contract for these fighters”. It says that, before the end of this year, “Our plant will also deliver the first Su-35S jet to the Ministry of Defense under the fourth contract.
Privolzhsky Air Base near the city of Astrakhan, Russia, is the base of the Aerospace Forces’ 185th Combat Training and Combat Applications Center. It is the only Combat Application Center of its kind in Russia. It is entrusted with the task of providing training in combat situations, to provide training in combat tactics for the army and other air defense units.
Features of the Su-35s
Su-35s aircraft combat the enemy while facing ground threats on the country. This consignment of planes will increase Russia’s military power against Ukraine. Let us tell you that in the midst of the ongoing attacks in Kyiv, Russia has continued to bombard the border areas. According to media reports, the Russian-owned defense group Rostec had announced that the Russian Air Force has Su-35s from United Aircraft Corporation. Under this, Russia has received a consignment of these next generation aircraft.
The fresh batch is part of the third contract signed between the Russian Defense Ministry and United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) for 30 aircraft. Its delivery is expected to be completed in 2024. The Su-35s is one of the best fighter jets in the world. This new series of Su-35s was completed testing at the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aviation Plant, with each aircraft undergoing aerial operational tests.
One claim says that the Su-35s is a very powerful fighter aircraft. It has an unprecedented ability to dodge enemy missiles. In such a situation, Ukraine currently does not have any air defense powerful enough to shoot down Su-35s.
