Jordan has started talks with Russia for a small number of Su-34 fighter bombers

Jordan has started talks with Russia for a small number of Su-34 fighter bombers, that reported newspaper “Kommersant”.

Ivan Safronov said that, now make a deal hampered by several factors, chief among which is the orientation of Amman on arms purchases in the United States and the unstable situation in the country.

The Sukhoi Su-34  is a Russian twin-engined, twin-seat strike fighter. It is intended to replace the Sukhoi Su-24.


Based on the Sukhoi Su-27 ‘Flanker’, the two-seat Su-34 is designed primarily for tactical deployment against ground and naval targets (tactical bombing/attack/interdiction roles, including against small and mobile targets) on solo and group missions in daytime and at night, under favourable and adverse weather conditions and in a hostile environment with counter-fire and EW counter-measures deployed, as well as for aerial reconnaissance.
