This was announced by Igor Dygalo, the representative of the Department of Information and Mass Communications of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation for the Navy.

    So 5 in total Su-30SMs for the Navy in 2017. Mark the number franco!

    So this mean 22 Su-30SM in 2017. 17 for VKS and 5 for NAVY.

    Check your math Smile

    Beginning to look like the 28 may be assigned like this;

    12 - Saki
    12 - Chernyakhovsk
    4 - Severomorsk-3 (flying with the remaining Su-33)

    I think NAVY will order more Su-30SM. They also need them in Pacific fleet and most probably they will equip full squadron of Su-30SM in Northern fleet.

    1. They are 2-seaters so some training.
