    Armenia MoD confirms that it has signed the contract to buy an unspecified number of Su-30SM jets from Russia (thought to be 12). ????????????????

    Su-30SM will be a giant leap in air capabilities for Armenia. Best way to “prepare the population for peace.”

    Armenia's Ministry of Defense has announced that it has signed a contract for an unknown # of Russian Su-30SM multipurpose fighters as part of the new $100 million loan from Russia (which is insufficient to purchase a squadron of 12 fighters).

    The contract is largely symbolic considering the small # of fighters transferred (it will also be interesting to see what munitions are sold), but this is a solid PR coup for PM Nikol Pashinyan. It is also the first arms deal signed with Russia since Pashinyan became PM. 2/


    Thread: so the contract is only for 4 Su-30SM, which should be delivered to Armenia in 2020. All 4 fighters were sold at domestic, instead of export, prices (which is supposed to happen for CSTO members but often doesn't occur), and Russia provided a $100 million loan.

    25 million per aircraft is a f**king good deal for Armenia!!

    Now Azerbaidjan will buy them some mig-35 to counter that for sure.

    Just because they are taking out a loan doesn't mean they don't have some cash to put towards it.
