2 Chinese Air Force in Lipetsk Russia

Chinese Air Force in Lipetsk Russia

Posted on November 6, 2014 by tim


Three SU-30MKK war planes of the Chinese air force have arrived in Lipetsk, Russia. It is not often that an airplane of the army of the another state is a guest in Russia, and it is even more rare to see jets from China. So here is the story and photos. By the way, those SU-30MKK are Russian SU planes that were specially designed for the needs of the Chinese air force in the early 2000s.  They are very similar to the SU-30MK planes that were designed for and sold to the Indian air force, but still there are some differences. The Russian prototypes used to design those planes were called SU-27. Sergey has taken some photos of those and has a story.

And here are their warplanes.

Interesting that all the inscriptions are done in Russian, but Chinese technicians don’t understand Russian or English, Sergey says, but they had an interpreter who could translate.

“We asked them to pose for the shoot”, says Sergey.

Here is one going to the runway. It’s pretty grey and dark compared to the white-blueish Russian warplanes in the background.

Ready to take off.

Thrust!

Go!

    I must confess the Chinese camo is even better than the Russian one…

    Chinese jets are made to be camoflauged with the smog.
