As part of its plan to increase its strike capabilities, the People's Republic of China (PRC) intends to order another batch of 18 Russian-made Su-30MKK aircraft soon from the KnAAPO factory (Konsomolsk-on-Amur, Russia).
The aircraft is designed and built by the KnAAPO factory in Konsomolsk, while the fighter-optimized Su-30MKI is designed and produced by IAPO in lrkutsk.
In a first step, it appears that both Iapoo and Knaapo are to be privatised (with the Russian government holding a 51 per cent stake) and managed under the auspices of the Sukhoi design bureau.
In the meantime, and shortly after the show, the government definitely started to shift gears upwards, by having approved a draft aimed at creating a Sukhoi holding company headed by AVPK Sukhoi (AVPK = aviation military production complex) and the Sukhoi Design Bureau whose umbrella also will shelter the Novosibirsk Aviation Production Association, The famous Knaapo unit (or Komsomolosk-on-Amur Aviation Production Association), the above-mentioned Irkutsk plant, and even the Beriev scientific and technical complex.
