Russia’s Su-30MK maker boasts order portfolio for 300 fighters

Russia’s Irkut corporation said on Tuesday it had secured orders for at least 300 Su-30MK fighters and that it had already delivered over half of them.

Orders have been placed by India, Algeria and Malaysia, Irkut’s marketing director Andrei Alyoshin said at the Dubai Airshow 2011.

Over 200 of the aircraft have already been delivered to customers, Irkut said.

The Su-30MK Flanker is a multirole twin-engine, two-seater for all-weather, air-to-air and air-to-surface deep interdiction missions.

Su-family fighters constitute the bulk of Russia’s arms exports.
