KAZAN, October 15 (RIA Novosti) - A Russian airbase for Sukhoi Su-27 fighter aircraft is to be set up in Belarus in 2016, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Air Force Viktor Bondarev said Wednesday.
“A Russian Air Force base will be created in 2016. It will hold Su-27 fighter aircraft,” Bondarev told journalists during a working visit to construction projects of the Russian Air Force.
The Russian fighter jets will be based at a military airfield in the city of Bobruisk, Bondarev said, adding that a technical plan for the field’s reconstruction is already in place.
Will they order more Su-27 to be modernized to Su-27SM standard for Belarus air base or they will place standard Su-27 fighters there?
i think su-27 are enough for polish air force
