MOSCOW, Aug. 31 (UPI) — Russia’s Ministry of Defense has received additional Su-34 bombers from Sukhoi, a subsidiary of United Aircraft Corp.

The Su-34, designated by NATO as the Fullback, is a twin-engine strike aircraft with a crew of two. It has a maxiumum speed of 1,200 miles per hour at altitude, a combat radius of more than 680 miles and carries bombs, missiles and rockets.

United Aircraft said a “batch” of aircraft were delivered Tuesday, with the planes flying from the V. P. Chkalov Novosibirsk Aircraft Plant to their place of their deployment.

The United Aircraft announcement, however, did not clarify the exact number of aircraft involved.

Under a contract with the Ministry of Defense, Sukhoi is supplying a total 200 Fullbacks to the Russian Aerospace Forces up to the year 2020. The 100th Su-34 rolled off Sukhoi’s production line earlier this month.
