Angola to receive Su-30K fighters in 2015

Russia is to supply Angola with Sukhoi Su-30K fighter aircraft later in the year.
The 558th Aviation Repairing Plant located at Baranovichi in Belarus is upgrading 12 Su-30Ks that are to be supplied to Angola in accordance with a contract signed by Rosoboronexport and the African country's defence ministry in late 2013.
The first batch of fighters will be upgraded in 2015. The process is planned to be finished in late 2016 to early 2017.
The aircraft are from a batch of 18 Su-30Ks that India has returned to Russia.

  1. As has India, Angola will learn that Russian equipment is ok as long as you can still smell the paint, but this will change. The fix is very expensive. That eventual cost is much more than new F-16 Blk 30s.
