Modernization of Sukhoi Su-30MKI for Indian Air Force


The Indian Air Force is currently in talks with Russia to modernize the Sukhoi Su-30MKI fighter aircraft. The project of modernizing Su-30MKI multirole fighters operational in the Indian Air Force is at the stage of discussion currently and the Russian side is ready to offer India a modern upgrade package. Su-30MKI is in service with the Indian Air Force (IAF) as a multirole fighter jet. Discussions are ongoing for the IAF to receive a modern upgrade package. The IAF operates around 250+ Su-30MKI jets, this unique version was specifically designed for India. India is the largest operator of the Su-30MKI multirole fighters in the world. What makes the SU-30MKI different from the standard Su-30 is the advanced Israeli avionics and electronic warfare systems.

This modernization project has been designated as the ‘Super Sukhoi’. Indian enterprises will play a key role in meeting the requirements of modernizing the Su-30 MKIs in order to make them “Super Sukhois”. Super Sukhoi, is a modernized 4+ generation version of the original Russian Su-30 fighter aircraft. It is a super-manoeuvrable multi-role fighter that was created according to the specifications of the Russian Aerospace Forces. it is one of the world’s finest dogfighters with upgrades being done to equip it with credible BVR engagement options (beyond visual range). The Sukhoi Su-30SM fighter jet will be standardized with the 4++ generation Su-35 fighter by upgrading its onboard equipment and armament to cut its cost and breathe a new life into the plane.
