MOSCOW, (BM) – The first flights and the development of air missions of the Su-35S squadron of the Western Military District (ZVO) took place in Karelia, learned BulgarianMilitary.com. New fighters were received for the aviation group at the end of 2019.
Su-35 fighters of generation 4 ++ with controlled thrust vector were assembled at the plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. Super-maneuverable machines are designed to solve the tasks of gaining and maintaining air supremacy, air support of troops in conflicts of any scale and isolation of the combat area.
The Su-35 fighter is capable of using all modern and promising tactical weapons of the air-to-air class, as well as air-to-surface, as well as to conduct combat in any conditions.
In the near future, the Su-35S squadron of the Western Military District will begin the first air “battles” and carry out practical firing at an aviation training ground in Lake Ladoga.
