    MOSCOW, January 26 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's Sukhoi holding said on Monday that a third Su-30MK2 fighter, delivered to Indonesia last week, had passed flight tests at an airfield on the island of Sulawesi.

    Under a $300 million contract, signed in 2007, Russia has supplied three Su-30MK2 planes and will deliver three Su-27SKM fighters to Jakarta in addition to the two Su-27SK and two Su-30MK planes that are already in service with the Indonesian air force.

    "During a 1-hour flight, the Russian military pilots checked the performance of all on-board systems. Two Su-30MK2 fighters, delivered in December, were tested on January 6," the company said.

    Russia is scheduled to deliver three Su-27SKM planes to Indonesia in 2009-2010.

    The aircraft will become part of the 11th Squadron and will be based at the Sultan Hasanuddin airbase on Sulawesi.
