The Russian Air Force has taken delivery of the final batch of modernised Su-24M2 frontline bombers from Sukhoi.

The Su-24M2 bombers have been retrofitted with new equipment and systems at the VP Chkalov Novosibirsk Aircraft Production Association (NAPO), to enhance their capabilities and improve their combat efficiency.

NAPO has upgraded the Su-24M2 aircraft with improved avionics, including GPS and the Russian equivalent GLONASS, and a head-up display (HUD) and visor, under a three-year contract, as part of a national defence order for 2009.

The Su-24M2, an all-weather version for day and night use, has also been fitted with additional sophisticated weapons.

An upgraded version of Su-24’s other variants such as Su-24M and Su-24MK fighter bombers, the Su-24M2s have been sent to their respective air force bases.

The two-seater, twin-engine Sukhoi Su-24 aircraft, built by the former Soviet Union during the 1970s and 1980s, carried the USSR’s first integrated digital navigation / attack system.
