"We anticipate the arrival of two more Su-34 strike aircraft to the center under the defense procurement program. The tactical bombers have departed Novosibirsk," the source said.

He added that the Su-34s had been accepted at the Novosibirsk Aircraft Plant (an affiliate of Russian airframer Sukhoi) on January 28. The manufacturer continues with its 2008 and 2012 government-placed orders for the cutting-edge tactical bombers for the Russian Defense Ministry.

As was reported in the press, the 2015 defense procurement order for Su-34s was executed in full. The Su-34 fleet of the Aerospace Force exceeds 70 aircraft. There are Su-34s with the Russian air task force in Syria. They have repeatedly delivered strikes against the Islamic State terrorist group that is banned in Russia. The bombers of the type eliminate targets with precision-guided munitions, e.g. KAB-500S satellite-guided bombs.
