Russian Navy orders additional Su-30SM fighters

Russia has ordered another seven Sukhoi Su-30SM multirole fighter aircraft for the Russian Navy.
This is the second order for the Russian Navy. In July, the navy received the first three Su-30SM fighters ordered under a late 2013 contract for five aircraft.
Also the Russian Naval Aviation will receive 10 MiG-29K carrier fighters, one An-140 transport, and one Be-200 seaplane before the end of 2014.
Ten MiG-29K aircraft would give the navy a fleet of 14 aircraft, and 10 more will be received in 2015.
The navy intens to procure a total of six Be-200 amphibians. Three will form a search-and-rescue detachment for the Pacific Fleet; the remaining three will be based at Yeysk, presumably to cover the same mission for Russia's western fleets.
