The Russian Air Force’s first Su-30SM advanced fighter jet made its first flight on Friday, the manufacturer said.

 

“The flight lasted for two hours and went smoothly,” the Irkut corporation said.

 

The Su-30SM is a specialized version of the thrust-vectoring Su-30MKI for all-weather, air-to-air and air-to-surface deep interdiction missions.

 

The Defense Ministry and Irkut signed a contract in March for delivery of 30 of the multirole fighters by 2015.
