MOSCOW (BNS): The Russian Air Force will receive new attack aircraft by 2020, Air Force spokesman Col. Vladimir Drik said.

According to a news report by RIA Novosti, the new aircraft will gradually replace the Su- 25SM Frogfoot attack fighters.

"The new aircraft will meet the demands of modern warfare and feature elements of stealth technology, the whole range of tactical weaponry, modern radar and navigation equipment," Drik was quoted as saying in the news report.

The Russian Air Force operates the largest number of Su-25s, and has plans to upgrade older aircraft to the Su-25SM variant.

The Air Force at present has over 30 Su-25SM aircraft in service and plans to modernise about 80 Su-25s by 2020, Drik added.
