In the framework of military-technical cooperation Belarus received from Russia 12 Mi-8MTB-5 helicopters, four combat training Yak-130 aircraft, as well as the fourth antiaircraft Tor-M2 battery in 2016 and early 2017, the general said.

"We are completing plans to buy modern multipurpose Su-30SM fighter jets from the Russian Federation. I believe the final decision will be made this year and we shall move to practical implementation of the plan," Dvigalev said.

It was reported that Belarus wants to buy at least 12 Su-30SM by 2020.

The Protivnik-GE mobile 3D surveillance radar with a digital phased array and digital space-time signal processing is designed to automatically (semi-automatically) detect, position, and track strategic and tactical aircraft, cruise missiles, ballistic targets, small-size low-speed aerial vehicles, classify targets, conduct identification friend-or-foe interrogation, locate active jammers, as well as to generate radar data for direction of fighter aircraft and designation data for surface-to-air missile systems when operating as part of automated Air Defence and Air Force command & control systems.


The Protivnik-GE radar is a highly mobile, jamming-proof decimetric surveillance radar with a track data processing capability, which has embodied the latest advances in radar engineering, computer technology, design solutions, and circuit components.
