The deployment of Su-34 to Chelyabinsk airbase has begun
Three airplanes just landed in Chelyabinsk airfield.
Of these three airplanes, Nº08 was already transferred to the VKS in May, and had been in Lípetsk until now.
In addition also have arrived the Nº09 and the Nº10 that at the end of August were still in the factory of Novosibirsk, therefore in number of airplanes transferred to the VKS in September it is of 2, which raises to 111 the number of serial aircraft in service
Also i have counted 6 planes delivered for 2018, not 8. Maybe they count for 2018 the 2 planes in the framework of the state defense order of 2017 delivered in early January?AMCXXL wrote:George1 wrote:Sukhoi transferred a 1st batch of Su-34 aircraft to the Russia MoD in 2018.

The aircraft took off from the aerodrome of the Novosibirsk Aviation Plant. V.P. Chkalov and went to the site of his deployment
This are the two "lost" airplanes of the plan of 2017 that are transferred with several days of delay. (the administrative act of acceptance of the product was in December within the term of the calendar year of whose planning they are part)
Better not to make much case of bmpd that copy of Russian forums but copy wrong
The No. 35 and No. 36 returned from Syria at the end of December, they are not the new airplanes handed over on November 18. There was a rotation of airplanes between those deployed in Syria

I think you don't include one lost to Voronej IIRC or damaged ? in this case 120 in service with pre-series
here at the end 121 delivered with 7 pre-series :
Both transferred now to the 2nd bomber regiment of the Su-34 aircraft manufactured by the NAZ under a contract with the Russian Ministry of Defense dated February 2012 for 92 such aircraft. With their delivery, the total number of aircraft of this type transferred to the VKS under the contract of 2012 reached 78 units.
