Armenian Su-30SM turned out to be unarmed


According to Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, the country previously purchased Russian multipurpose Su-30SM fighters, but did not purchase the necessary missile weapons for them. The head of the cabinet spoke about this at a meeting with residents of the Aragatsotn region.


Yes, we bought a plane, it was delivered in May, and yes, we didn’t have time to buy missiles before the war.

- stressed Pashinyan.

Nikol Pashinyan put the responsibility for the fact that the Armenian Su-30SM were unarmed to the previous Armenian authorities. However, the fact that Yerevan did not purchase missiles for fighters was mentioned earlier by Movses Hakobyan, the former head of the military control service of the Armenian defense department. He noted that Moscow does not export air-to-air missiles, the range of which exceeds 130 km.

The Su-30SM was developed on the basis of one of the latest modifications of the Su-30MKI fighter for India. The plane took off for the first time in September 2012. It is equipped with two by-pass forced turbojet engines with controlled thrust vector, the cost of one unit is about $ 50 million.

      Russia literally saved the lives of Lukashenko (running around with a gun) and Pashinyan (hiding in a bunker). The last story with the Iskander did not teach anything))

      Even if the MISSING Russian missiles are effective by as much as 10%, then no better advertisement can be imagined.

    Actually, it's idiocy to buy planes for Military actions without weapons. What did you buy for the parades?

      In general, it is idiocy to buy planes for military operations without weapons. What did you buy for the parades?

      "Great Armenian Diaspora of the World" I was able to scrape together money for airplanes, but did not master their weapons.

      This is how myths end.
