Russia's Sukhoi design bureau has delivered the first Su-34 bomber to the Russian Air Force. The delivery took place within the scope of the 2013 state defense order.

On Monday, May 6th, the plane took off and flew to the place of its deployment. In the near future, the Russian Air Force will receive a few more of this aircraft.

"Large government contracts for the supply of Su-34 that were signed with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation in 2008 and 2010, created the conditions for stable and long-term activities of the factory and identified the prospects for its long-term development," officials with the company said.

The aircraft produced in 2012 show excellent performance.
