Russia and Indonesia signed contract to supply 11 Su-35 fighter jets



Russia and Indonesia signed contract to supply 11 Su-35 multifunctional fighter jets, Interfax reported with source in Jakarta.

"The contract for the Su-35 has been signed," the source said.

Earlier it was reported that Russia and Indonesia had agreed on certain technical aspects of the contract for the supply of 11 fighters.

According to earlier reports Jakarta would like to purchase ten multirole fighter jets Su-35 that would replace outdated F-5 Tiger planes of US manufacture, which the Indonesian military has used since 1980. Rostec corporation later said a commercial proposal for selling 11 planes was handed over to Indonesia.

Su-35 is a generation 4++ highly maneuverable multirole fighter jet equipped with an on-board phased array radar and a thrust vector control (TVC) engine. It is capable of developing a speed of up to 2,500 kilometers per hour and has a range of flight of 3,400 kilometers (combat range of about 1,600 kilometers). The fighter is armed with a 30 mm gun and has twelve weapon stations for bombs and rockets.
