Modernized Su-33 carrier-based fighter jets will enter service with an air wing of the Kuznetsov heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser, Naval Aviation Chief Major-General Igor Kozhin says.
According to Major-General Kozhin, the Su-33 will get a boosted propulsion, an improved detection system and other features. Thus, it will become a “really multi-role” fighter. The Naval Aviation Chief pointed out that most changes are related to electronic “gubbins” of the jets.
