The RFAF has ordered 60 Irkut-built Su-30SM multi-role fighters with canards and thrust-vectoring AL-31Fs.
The RFAF's current air superiority leader is the 34.5-tonne Irkut-built "4++ generation" single-seat Su-35S, which has thrust-vectoring 142-kN Saturn Type 117S engines, but no canards.
Some 28 modified export MiG-29SMT/UBTs have been accepted by the RFAF, which in 2014 placed a RUB 17 billion ($ 290 million) order for 16 more MiG-29SMTs.
At the top of the performance scale, by 2019 the RFAF is to receive around 60 modernised 42-tonne MiG-31BM multirole fighters with Zaslon-M radars.
As an interim measure, the RFAF is having its twelve existing Il-78 brought to 210-tonne Il-78(M)2 standard with stronger wings and undercarriage and modernised avionics.
In January 2015 the RFAF ordered two Ilyushin Il-96-400TZ tankers.
