MOSCOW (BNS): Fulfilling the State Defence Order for the year 2012, aviation major Sukhoi has completed delivery of Su-34 frontline bombers and Su-35S Flanker-E multirole fighters to the Russian Air Force.

The company delivered five Su-34 frontline bombers to the Defence Ministry on December 28, 2012, in addition to five more supplied earlier on December 25.

The Russian Defence Ministry has placed an order for a total of 124 Su-34s to be delivered to the Air Force by 2020.

The company also delivered six Su-35S production multi-functional fighters to the Air Force on Dec 28.

The Su-35S is a single-seat, twin engined super-manoeuvrable multirole fighter of 4++ generation. An upgraded variant of the Su-35 fighter, it employs technologies of the fifth generation that assure its superiority over similar class fighters.

Sukhoi has been contracted to supply a total of 48 Su-35S fighters to the Defense Ministry by 2015.
