Su-30MKK/MK2

All 38 Su-30MKK fighter bombers China ordered in 1999 were delivered within one year from December 2000 to late 2001. This relatively fast pace demonstrated the urgency of PLAAF's requirement for a modern fighter bomber. The table below summarizes all examples identified so far. Additional 38 Su-30MKKs ordered in 2001 were delivered in 2003. 24 Su-30MK2 maritime fighter bomber were acquired by PLAN in 2004. One Su-30MK2 (#01) crashed into a mountain during a training mission in April 2002 and was later replaced.
