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.
