印度尼西亚'的(曾经绝密的)苏霍伊Su-30喷气式战斗机抵达澳大利亚,首次在国外部署

印度尼西亚’s front-line jet fighters have just arrived in Australia to take part in Pitch Black 2012, the largest multi-national biennial air combat exercise held downtown, which officially kicks off on Jul. 30. The arrival of the once top-secret 苏霍伊Su-30s, at their first deployment abroad, marks the beginning of a new era in the Australia and 印度尼西亚 relations, after defense cooperation between the two nations stalled on the 东帝汶 危机.

The formation of two Su-30s and two Su-27s of the 印度尼西亚n Air Force (TNI AU)  was welcomed by a flight of F-18 Hornet of the No. 77 Squadron of the 澳大利亚皇家空军 that escorted the 印度尼西亚n planes to 达尔文机场,在北领地。

四名俄罗斯战斗机(由10人组成的机队) 苏霍伊27 和四个两个座位 苏霍伊30MK2 jets, with six more on order) attending the bi-annual will have the opportunity to train with the RAAF assets, performing dissimilar air combat training within the Australian and 印度尼西亚n airspace.

运动沥青黑 12 will be held until Aug. 17 and involve 2,200 personnel and up to 94 aircraft from Australia, 印度尼西亚, Singapore, Thailand, New Zealand and the United States.
