While the Military Council was carrying out heavy air strikes across the country, two Russian-made SU-30 SME fighter jets entered service yesterday, December 15, on the 76th anniversary of the Military Council's Air Force.

Air Force Sergeant Zey, who is a member of the Nonviolent Civil Disobedience Movement (CDM), told RFA that the SU-30 planes have not been used yet due to technical difficulties, but could soon be used.

"The bombs used in that fighter plane cannot be produced by the KAPS (Defense Weapons Factory). It should be used only after it has been standardized. Su-30 fighter jets are more effective than other fighter jets. It costs a lot.”

The Chairman of the Military Council, General Min Aung Hlaing, said at the Royal Army ceremony yesterday that the aircraft will contribute to the improvement of combat power because modern warfare can use air power superiority to influence the enemy.

It can use both guided and unguided missiles and can fly more than 1,800 miles without refueling, which is equivalent to three thousand kilometers.
