Russian Air and Space Forces (VKS) received a new batch of Su-35S
In a recent development that bolsters Russia’s aerial prowess, aircraft manufacturers have rolled out a fresh batch of Su-35S fighters. These state-of-the-art jets have now been delivered to the Russian Ministry of Defense, marking a significant milestone in the nation’s air and space forces.
- Su-34 operates in ‘the near zone’, but EW caches it from radars
- Su-35S can bypass the new defense system of the B-52H bomber – Russia
- F-22 is capable of preventing a hit-and-run attack from the Su-35
The announcement was made by none other than Denis Manturov, the Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia, on June 23. This further underscores the commitment of the Russian government to enhance its military capabilities.
The Russian Ministry of Defense has just received a brand new fleet of Su-35S aircraft, straight from the production line. Russian aircraft manufacturers have outdone themselves this time, delivering one of the world’s finest operational-tactical aircraft, as affirmed by Manturov, and reported on the Russian government’s official website.
These impressive combat machines have already soared through the skies, completing their maiden voyage to their home airport. After rigorous factory tests and thorough checks by technical services, the Su-35S aircraft were given the green light. Each aircraft has been put through its paces in various operational modes, ensuring unparalleled performance.
These new additions to the Russian Air and Space Forces were birthed at the esteemed Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aviation Plant. Yu.A. Gagarin, of the United Aircraft Corporation [a segment of the state corporation Rostech], can be proud of this latest batch of airborne powerhouses.
Yury Slyusar, the esteemed general director of the United Aircraft Corporation [UAC], recently shared some exciting news. The UAC has received substantial funding under a state defense order, paving the way for a significant upgrade in their technical equipment and production facilities. This influx of resources has led to an increase in their production capacities, allowing them to ramp up serial production and enhance overall output.
Slyusar committed, “We stand firm in our responsibility to fulfill our pre-existing contracts.” He then dropped a thrilling revelation – the production of the next batches of the Su-35 aircraft is already underway. But there’s more! Slyusar also announced an increase in the delivery volume of the fifth-generation Su-57 fighters to the Russian Air and Space Forces this year.
Currently, the Su-35C aircraft are actively deployed by the Russian Federation’s Armed Forces in the Special Operations Zone [special military operation is the term used by the Russian government for the war in Ukraine] in Ukraine. Recently, on June 2, the Russian Ministry of Defense unveiled footage showcasing the precise and strategic combat maneuvers of these remarkable Russian military fighters. The Su-35C’s main tasks include providing cover for the Russian Air Force’s bombers and attack aviation, as well as army aviation helicopters, during strikes on Ukrainian Armed Forces’ facilities and equipment.
Earlier, on May 25, the agency shared an impressive update that the agile crews of the Su-35S multi-role aircraft swiftly detected and neutralized Ukrainian Armed Forces’ aircraft during a special operation to safeguard Donbass. These successful fighter flights of the Russian Aerospace Forces were executed with an array of suspended missiles, demonstrating their versatility and readiness for various combat scenarios.
In an ongoing effort to shield Donbass, a region whose inhabitants have staunchly rejected the outcomes of the 2014 coup d’état in Ukraine, Russia persistently forges ahead. This special operation, spearheaded by none other than Russian President Vladimir Putin, commenced on February 24, 2022. This decisive move was a response to the escalating tension in the region, exacerbated by relentless artillery fire from Ukrainian troops.
