Uganda is one of the few East African countries with strong ties to the non-western Republic. The Ugandan and Russian governments display a proper bilateral relationship by engaging in multibillion-dollar business transactions involving military equipment on a regular basis.
It earned Russia's trust, making it simple for the former Soviet Union's headquarters to approve a request for SU-30 fighter fighters in 2010. Uganda obtained all ten planes by 2012, making it the first and only owner/operator of the aircraft in East Africa.
The Sukhoi SU-30 is a multirole aircraft that can collect intelligence, intercept aerial bombers, deliver destructive bombs, and launch a variety of missiles. The Ugandan air force was positioned among the region's most formidable aviation forces thanks to this aluminum bird. The jet is powered by two powerful turbofan engines that propel its 17-ton bulk to speeds of over 2,121 km/h at an altitude of 17.7 km above sea level.
Two pilots sitting in tandem manage the sophisticated navigation and firing systems, ensuring mission success 100 percent of the time. The plane's primary armament consists of a 30 mm machine gun and numerous air-air, air-ground, and anti-ship missiles.
Do you think other countries should have the privilege ?
