The aggressor country Russia continues to manufacture combat aircraft, including Su-34/34M frontline fighter-bombers. These aircraft are carriers of guided aerial bombs, which Russians are actively using to attack the positions of the Ukrainian military and civilians.

This was reported by military analyst and volunteer Taras Chmut on his page on the social network X. He noted that this month, the Russian Aerospace Forces received a second batch of aircraft (probably 2 sides), which were built at the Novosibirsk Chkalov Aircraft Plant.

In total, they produced:

- 7 prototypes and 5 pre-production aircraft;

- 126 production aircraft under contracts in 2010-20;

- 20 у 2022;

- 12 у 2023;

- 4 in 2024.

"And that's 160 production aircraft. There are no conclusions here, just numbers," Chmut wrote.

As a reminder, the Russian planes that strike Ukraine daily are based at airfields less than 200 kilometers from the border. However, Ukrainian defenders cannot destroy them because of a U.S. ban.

This includes dozens of Su-34s that are regularly parked in the open air at the newly renovated Baltimore base in the Voronezh region.

Earlier, the Air Force of the Ukrainian Armed Forces noted that the only way to fight enemy CABs is to destroy their carriers.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, in the first six months of 2024, the Ukrainian Defense Forces shot down more than 30 aircraft of the Russian occupation forces. Most of them were in Donbas. In particular, about 13 Su-34s were hit.
