The Russian Aerospace Forces received a new batch of modern Su-35S fighter jets.

The press service of the Russian UAC corporation announced this on Tuesday, October 24.

New fighter jets were produced at the Komsomolsk-on-Amur aviation plant in the Far East.

The aircraft corporation claimed that the combat aircraft underwent a full cycle of ground and flight tests in various operating modes before being transferred to the military.

The number of Su-35S fighter jets transferred to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation in this batch is not reported. New fighters have already left for the air bases.

This is the fourth batch of Su-35S fighter jets, which entered the Aerospace Forces of the Russian Federation in the current year.

In June, Militarnyi reported the transfer of the first batch of two fighter jets.

The second batch of Su-35S arrived in the first half of July and also probably consisted of two aircraft.

The aggressor country’s Aerospace Forces received the third batch of such combat aircraft at the end of September. It was stated that the Su-35S came along with the newest Su-57 fighter jets. Fighters are produced as part of the Russian state defense order for the current year.

In addition to previously ordered aircraft, in 2023, the UAC corporation in 2023 received new orders to produce fighters and bombers for the Russian Ministry of Defense.

The order is related to the creation of two new interspecific strategic territorial associations of the armed forces in the Russian Federation in 2023: Moscow and Leningrad Military Districts.

Recently, Russian air defense shot down two Su-35S of the Russian Aerospace Forces on the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine with “friendly fire.”
