Algeria orders more Su-30MKA & MiG-29M

Thu Sep 12, 2019 12:32 am

Algeria are topping up their fleet with more of both aircraft. I expect this will see the retirement of the Su-22, the MiG-25 as well as older MiG-29s and that the prospective order for Su-34s reported a few years ago won’t happen.

Algeria certainly has a diverse air force!

Algeria orders more Russian fighters

Algeria has ordered additional Su-30MKA and MiG-29M/M2 fighters, the Russian business daily newspaper Vedomosti reported on 10 September.

The order was first reported by the MENA Defense website, which focuses on the Algerian military, and was corroborated by defence industry sources consulted by Vedomosti .

One source said the contract is worth about USD1.8 billion and covers 16 Su-30MKA (the Algerian version of the Su-30MKI) and 14 MiG-29M/M2 aircraft. He added that Algeria was expanding its fleet of Su-30MKAs - 58 of which have already been delivered - and also wanted to replace some of the obsolete MiG-29s it bought from Belarus and Ukraine in the early 2000s. Another source told the newspaper that the deal would be worth more than USD2 billion when weapons and other equipment are added.
