Algeria to Purchase 14 Russian-Made Sukhoi Fighter Jets

Russia and Algeria have signed a contract for the sale of 14 Russian-made Sukhoi fighter jets, Sergei Chemezov, the head of Russian defense technology holding Rostec, said Friday at a Russian arms trade fair, RIA Novosti news agency reported.

Algeria is one of Russia's biggest defense customers and already has 44 of Russia's heavy multi-role Su-30MKI fighter jets in service. A total of 28 of the planes were delivered under a 2006 contract, and 16 more were delivered under a 2010 contract.

According to Chemezov, the latest Algerian Su-30 contract was signed in the spring of 2015, but he did not explain why the deal has only been announced now. No price for the contract was given, but the reported cost of an Su-30MKI fighter stands at 2 billion rubles ($30 million) per unit.

Chemezov, speaking at the 2015 Russian Arms Expo in Nizhny Tagil, said the Algerians should receive their fighters in 2016 and 2017.

The deal is the second contract announced this week for new Su-30 fighters, which are manufactured by the Irkut aircraft company, a subsidiary of the larger state-owned United Aircraft Corporation.

On Tuesday, Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov announced that the Russian military had signed an agreement with Irkut for eight of the newer variants of the fighter jet, known as the Su-30SM.

Borisov, head of procurements for the Russian military, said the two sides were preparing to sign a 75-fighter contract by the end of the year. Irkut is expected to complete deliveries under a 2011 contract for 60 of the Su-30SM fighters.

With orders flooding in, Chemezov said the Irkut will produce over 60 aircraft this year, setting a record for the company's post-World War II production rate, the Lenta.ru news site reported Friday.


60 konetta vuoteen on melko tanakka määrä. Mihinhän kaikkialle ne menee? Vieläköhän Inkkarit ovat sitoutuneet Su-30:siinsä?

Kiina toimittaa Algerian laivastolle ensimmäisen korvetin

The first of the three C-28A corvettes that China's Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding Group is building for Algeria arrived in Malaysia on 6 October having completed the first leg of its voyage to North Africa.

The C-28A corvettes built for Algeria have a length of 120 m and a full-load displacement of around 3,000 tonnes. Weapons include a single 76 mm NG-16-1 gun, two quad launchers for C-802 anti-ship missiles mounted transversely amidships, an octuple FM-90N launcher for short-range HQ-7 surface-to-air missiles, two 30 mm Type 730B close-in weapons systems (CIWS), two triple-tube torpedo launchers that fire through an opening in the hull, and four 24-barreled decoy launchers.

Koon ja ulkonäön perusteella nämä perustuvat Jiangwei-luokan fregatteihin. Muistuttaa aika paljon Pakistanille toimitettuja Zulfiqareja, mutta on jonkun verran modernimman näköinen. Siltikin aika vanhahtava alus, miksiköhän ovat noita tilanneet koska Euroopasta ja Venäjältä olisi ollut saatavissa modernimpeja tyyppejä. Ehkä nämä oli vain tosi halpoja.
