    The further development of Su-35S multi-role fighter program will be focused on expansion of the aircraft’s combat capabilities, ARMS-TASS reports with reference to the president of United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), Mikhail Pogosyan.

    "In 2013 a number of weapons (after completion of their development) have been integrated into the fighter. 14 air-launched weapons have been integrated into Su-35S so far", - Mikhail Pogosyan said.

    "We keep on expanding the fighter’s combat capabilities by means of integrating advanced weapons developed by Tactical Missiles Corporation into Su-35S", - he added.

    According to Mikhail Pogosyan, 12 serial Su-35S aircraft were handed over to 23rd fighter regiment of Russian air forces in February 2014.

    This year UAC must deliver 90 new combat aircraft to the air forces, including 24 Su-35s (12 of them have already been delivered to the customer).
