Sukhoi Company displays its military and civil products at the Indodefence-2012 air show

Moscow, November 7. Sukhoi Company displays its military and civil products at the international exhibition of defense technology Indodefence-2012 that was opened today in Jakarta (Indonesia). Professionals and visitors to the exhibition will be able to learn the specifications and combat capabilities of the latest super-maneuverable Su-35 fighter and two-seat Su-30MK2 fighter. Sukhoi Superjet 100 regional airliner will also be present аt the exposition of JSC „United Aircraft Corporation” (UAC) at the air show.

Indonesia is an important partner for Russia in the sphere of military-technical cooperation. At present the Indonesian Air Force has 10 „Su” — family fighters in service: five Su-27SKM and five Su-30MK2. In late 2010 a new contract was signed for the supply to Indonesia of six Su-30MK2 multi-role fighters.

Su-27SKM is a single-seat multi-role fighter. It is designed to destroy air targets in free space and on the background of the land, as well as for operations on land and sea targets with the use of guided and unguided air weapons by day and night, and in adverse weather conditions.

Su-30MK2 is a two-seat multi-role fighter. Aircraft weapon control system of the aircraft provides detection, tracking and destruction by aerial weapons of air, land and sea targets in all weather conditions, day and night. The fighter can also be used to train pilots in piloting technique and the use of aerial weapons. Presence of a second crew member reduces the load on the pilot in combat missions with the use of long-range guided weapons, night operations, and in long flights with air refueling.

The Russian-Indonesian cooperation develops also in the field of civil aviation. Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company and Indonesian Sky Aviation regional carrier signed a contract in June last year for the supply of 12 Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft in a basic configuration.

At the present time the process of validation of the type certificate of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (model RRJ-95B) aircraft is going on. It permits SSJ100 exports to Indonesia and its operation by the airlines of the country without restrictions.
