KOMSOMOLSK-ON-AMUR, February 12 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian Air Force received 12 advanced Su-35S multirole fighters Wednesday to be deployed with an air regiment based in Russia’s Far East.

The Defense Ministry ordered 48 of the aircraft in 2009, of which 34 have been delivered so far. The final deliveries of the remaining 14 are due in 2015.

All the Su-35S aircraft will be based at the Dzemgi airbase in the Khabarovsk Region, according to the Defense Ministry.

The Su-35S Flanker-E is a heavily upgraded derivative of the Su-27 multirole fighter. It has been touted as "4++ generation using fifth-generation technology."
