The Russian Air Force has taken delivery of four new Su-34 fighter-bombers. The planes were delivered to the Center of Combat Training of the Air Force at Lipetsk.

Full-scale production of Su-34s was started in 2008 at a Novosibirsk-based aircraft-manufacturing plant - NAPO, a subsidiary of the Sukhoi Aircraft Holding. A long-term state contract for the delivery of Su-34s to the Russian Air Force was signed in 2008 between the Ministry of Defense of Russia and the Sukhoi Company.

The Su-34 is a 4+ generation aircraft and has an active-safety system with artificial-intelligence elements. This system enables the crew to combat maneuver and to deliver precise strikes on several targets at the same time.

It can effectively engage ground, sea and air targets in all weathers and during the day or night using a wide range of combat munitions, including precision guided munitions.
