MOSCOW, November 13 (RIA Novosti) - Russia will deliver the last of six contracted Su fighter jets to Indonesia in 2010, a Russian Federal Service for Military and Technical Co-Operation deputy director said on Friday.

Under a $300 million contract, signed in 2007, Russia is to supply three Su-30MK2 and three Su-27SKM fighters to Jakarta.

"Under the contract, two Su-27SK jets must be delivered by the end of 2009. One more fighter will be delivered in 2010," Konstantin Birulin said.

The third Su-30MK2 jet was delivered in January.

Indonesian Armed Forces Commander Air Marshal Djoko Suyanto said in 2007 that the country needed at least one squadron equipped with 16 Sukhoi fighters to replace part of the outdated fleet of U.S. F-16 fighters
