Russia is to supply Angola with Sukhoi Su-30K ‘Flanker-D’ fighter aircraft later in the year, a military-diplomatic source told IHS Jane’s .
The 558th Aviation Repairing Plant located at Baranovichi in Belarus is upgrading 12 Su-30Ks that are to be supplied to Angola in accordance with a contract signed by Rosoboronexport and the African country’s defence ministry in late 2013.
“[The] first batch of fighters will be upgraded in 2015. The process is planned to be finished in late 2016 to early 2017,” the source said.
The aircraft are from a batch of 18 Su-30Ks that India has returned to Russia.
