KAZAN, October 15. /TASS/. Russia is due to establish an airbase in Babruysk, in eastern Belarus, in 2016 and deploy Sukhoi Su-27 fighter jets, Russian Air Force Commander-In-Chief Colonel General Viktor Bondarev said on Wednesday.
“The airbase of the Russian and Belarusian Air Force will be created in 2016. Su-27 fighter jets will be based there,” Bondarev told reporters during his three-day visit to the facilities under construction.
The Russian aircraft will be stationed at a military airfield, which is expected to be reconstructed.
Russia decided earlier this year to send 24 Su-27SM3 fighter jets to Belarus’s Baranovichi airfield to be used to provide inviolability of the airspace of the Union State of Russia and Belarus.
The Su-27 Flanker is a twin-engine supermaneuverable fighter jet, which can be used to perform various combat operations, including reconnaissance and interception of enemy aircraft.
