Russia to Upgrade Su-35C Fighter
Sukhoi Su-35C will be upgraded in 2017 based on the experience from the combat use in Syria, Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said on Monday.
"This year’s aircraft will be upgraded based on all the drawbacks and the Syrian experience", he told TASS during a visit to the Gagarin aircraft plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur.
"Our pilots, who serve in Syria, say it is one of the best aircraft in the world in the flight-technical characteristics, the nomenclature and the range of weapons", Yuri Borisov added. "They believe the aircraft cannot be compared in combat use with any other plane, and thus foreign clients have been considering this aircraft", the Deputy Defense Minister concluded.
