A contract for the delivery of Russian-made advanced Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jets to Indonesia is expected to be signed in the coming months, Director for International Cooperation and Regional Policy of Russia’s state hi-tech corporation Rostec Viktor Kladov told TASS on Friday.
"We hope that the contract for Su-35 aircraft will be signed in the imminent future. I believe it will be signed in the coming months," Kladov said.
It was reported earlier that Russia planned to sign a contract with Indonesia on the delivery of ten Su-35 multipurpose fighter jets.
Russian armaments are widely used in the Indonesian Army. Specifically, the Indonesian Air Force operates Su-27 and Su-30 aircraft. Su-35 fighter jets are set to replace the outdated US F-5 Tiger planes operational in the Indonesian Air Force since 1980.
