    I think Yak-130 deliveries are delayed because of changes after crash.

    It seems regiment in Domna will be soon fully equipped with Su-30SM.

    1 squadron, black bort numbers: 01,02,03,04,05,06,07,08,09,10,14,15
    2 squadron, red numbers: 16,17,18,19,20,21,23,26 and in beginning of August they also receive 2 planes 24,25

    Practically they have 22 fighters, 2 more and they will be complete. If we count here first 6 in training and test centers 01,02,54,55,56,57 and the first 3 for Navy 35,36,37, than we already have 31 Su-30SM.

    Post  mack8 Sun Aug 31, 2014 1:41 pm

    As it is known, 3 have already been transfered to Yeysk. These are part of an initial order for 5. According to A. Fomin at take-off.ru (and if i get it right, the 3/2014 magazine is available online btw) in the future VMF Su-30SM might be based in Kaliningrad, Kamchatka and Crimea. Apart from the known video, there is this image of bort 37 from take-off.ru...

    ...and i took this screenshot from the latest AFM magazine, showing bort 35:

    To form 3 regiments, they will need to order 30 more.

    Russian MoD sign a new contract with IAPO for 7 more Su-30SM for RuNAVY. Maybe first 12 will be for training squadron.

    http://www.ruaviation.com/news/2014/1/17/2170/

    To be honest, no idea. Maybe those 5+7 planes are additional contracts or they are inside those 50 planed planes. Interesting is, that first planes from those 50 planes are planed to be delivered in the end of 2015. Could be, that those 5+7 planes are additional contracts and first 3 were delivered from contract for 5 planes.

    Well, according to bmpd so far 72 Su-30SM have been ordered for the MoD, 60 for VVS (30 plus 30) and 12 (5 plus 7) for VMF. So it appears only these 12 have been ordered for the Navy so far, not the figures i was guesstimating.

    and these 12 are going to replace the 18 old Su-24 of black sea fleet
