One of the Su-30MK2 aircraft  that had been delivered by Russia to the Vietnam Air Force has a new color scheme.  The color not blue-dark blue as before, but the Su-30MK2 with number 8573 has green-brown color.


Vietnam has received the Russian-made Su-27 and Su-30 aircrafts. Based on 1995 contracts Vietnam has ordered seven Su-27SK (6001, 6002, 6003, 6004, 6005, 6006, 6007), and based on 1997 contracts Vietnam has ordered five Su-27UBK (8521, 8523, 8525, 8526, 8527), the contract was fulfilled.
