Multirole fighter jets Su-30SM of the new generation will be delivered to the 3624th Russian airbase at the Erebuni aerodrome in Armenia to replace MiG-29 aircraft, TASS quotes a source in the Russian Defense Ministry as saying.

"The re-equipment of the airbase with Su-30SM fighter jets is planned to start next year. The delivery of aircraft will be completed in two stages in 2020-2021. All 18 MiG-29 jets are planned to be replaced with Su-30SM aircraft," the source said.

"When deliveries of new aircraft begin, some pilots will be sent to the Lipetsk aviation center for training, while others will continue serving at the Erebuni airbase," the source noted.

Su-30SM is a twin-engine, two-seat supermaneuverable fighter jet of the 4++ generation.
