Two new multi-purpose Su-30CM fighters have joined the ranks of a separate marine attack aviation Regiment of the Black Sea fleet.
The jets have been deployed in Crimea and are shaped up to operate the flights by the general familiarization program, reported the information support department of the Black Sea Fleet.
Earlier on, the Black Sea fleet has already received the first three Su-30CM fighters, and two groups of pilots have already underwent a training course on new types of aircrafts in the city of Eisk.
New fighters are to replace theSu-24 strike aircrafts, which now are the basis of Marine aviation of the Black Sea Fleet.
This year Su-30CM fighters are still to be supplied for fleet arming. In the near future the aviators are to receive several new combat aircrafts that to form an aviation squadron.
