Russian aircraft industry turns to domestic customers

In the two years that have passed since the previous MAKS show, the Russian aviation industry has transitioned from a heavily export-dependent mode of operation to catering predominantly to the needs of domestic customers. While the volume of export contracts for Russian aircraft continues to shrink, the national air force is ordering increasingly more equipment.

Only 46 foreign orders for Russian-manufactured warplanes and knock-down kits were placed in 2011-2012. Indonesia ordered six Sukhoi Su-30MK2 fighters in 2011, and India, in December 2012, purchased 42 Su-30MKI kits to be assembled locally. Belarus placed an order for four Yakovlev Yak-130 jet trainers. Also in 2011, it became known that Syria had ordered 36 Yak-130s, but the future of that contract remains unclear. On the one hand, the contract appears to be on because Syria has made a down payment. On the other hand, according to a number of official Russian statements, Moscow has suspended all armament deliveries to Damascus until the situation in that country has stabilised (i.e. until the civil war has ended and a foreign military intervention ensued).

Over the same 2011-2012 time span, the Russian Defense Ministry ordered 192 combat aircraft, 55 trainers, and 39 transports. Irkut Corporation in late 2011 was contracted to build 55 Yak-130s; 15 of these were delivered in 2012, and a further 18 deliveries are expected to be made this year.

The Russian Defense Ministry dramatically increased the procurement of military aircraft by ordering 92 Sukhoi Su-34 front-line bombers, two 30-strong batches of Su-30SM multirole fighters, 24 MiG-29K carrier-based fighters, and 16 Su-30M2 two-seaters. In a separate development, 39 Ilyushin Il-76MD-90A military transports were ordered for 139 billion rubles ($4.2 billion). In the near future, perhaps even at the MAKS 2013 show, the Defense Ministry is expected to purchase 24 MiG-35 fighters. Deliveries under the Su-30SM and MiG-29K contracts have already begun, since production of these fighters was first launched under export contracts in 2012-13 годах. The first two Su-30SMs were delivered to the Russian Air Force in 2012, and at least 14 more will be delivered this year. Also expected are the first four MiG-29K deliveries by year-end.

Russian manufacturers continue to ramp up production under previous contracts. In 2011, the Russian Air Force received six Su-34s under the 2008 contract for 32 of the type; another 10 were delivered in 2012. The remaining 12 will be built this year, after which Sukhoi will start working on the 2012 contract. Su-35S output is also speeding up; eight production aircraft were built last year.
