Russia delivers Sukhoi fighter jets to Indonesia

29-Dec-2008 Intellasia | AFP | 7:01 AM

Russia has delivered two Sukhoi fighter jets to Indonesia, the first planes to be supplied to the country out of a total order of six, Russian defense officials said Friday.

“The first two jets out of the six bought by Indonesia have been delivered to the customer,” the Interfax news agency quoted a Sukhoi spokesman as saying.

The two jets delivered were of the Su-30MK2 class and another Su-30MK2 jet is due to be delivered at the start of next year. Three Su-27S KILOMETRES fighter jets are due to be delivered by 2010, Interfax said.

The delivery of the jets was part of a wide-ranging defense deal agreed when then president Vladimir Putin visited Jakarta in September 2007.

Moscow also extended to Indonesia a US$1 billion credit scheme to finance this and other military purchases from Russia, including 22 helicopters, 20 amphibious tanks and two submarines.
