The development package of the Russian Su-34 fighter-bombers has arrived + video

“The United Aerospace Corporation (UAC) handed over another batch of Su-34 fighter-bombers to the Russian Air Force. The fighter jets underwent a series of ground and flight tests and have now been handed over to the Russian Ministry of Defense,” he was quoted as saying by the Military Watch Magazine military specialist portal UAC, a private and state-owned aircraft manufacturing company owned by the majority of the Russian state.


Thanks to the development, the combat capability of the machines has increased, which makes it possible to launch advanced air-to-air missiles, to increase the range of strike measurements against land and sea targets, and to expand the conditions and accuracy of bombings.

According to the CEO of UAC, the new features of the Su-34 are connected to three different sensors that increase situational awareness, these are:

a UKR-RT seeker capsule, a UKR-OE camera capsule and a UKR-RL integrated radar.

Despite the Russian developments, the specialist portal adds that they lag behind the Chinese and American modifications.

Military Watch Magazine adds that the Su-34 is responsible for most depth bombing and is the longest-range fighter-bomber in the world.

The Russian Air Force received the latest development “package” last November.

It is not known how many machines are being delivered now, because even though the ministry ordered 76 in 2020, the delivery will probably not take place all at once. Previously, the UAC delivered 14 units per year, but since the outbreak of the war last year, the needs of the Ministry of Defense have increased.

The Ukrainian defense forces may be “worried” about the development of the Russian Su-34s, because until now the fighter-bombers were often only used for gravity bombing, which made the planes vulnerable to Ukrainian air defense.

This was especially true against hand-held shoulder-launched surface-to-air missile systems, which do not emit a radar signature, cannot be jammed, and have proven to be particularly dangerous at lower altitudes.
