Mykolaiv Aircraft Repair Plant NARP has transferred one more repaired Su-24MR reconnaissance aircraft to the Ukrainian military, Ukroboronprom's press service has reported.

"The state-owned enterprise Mykolaiv Aircraft Repair Plant NARP, part of the state conglomerate Ukroboronprom, has transferred another repaired Su-24MR reconnaissance plane to the Ukrainian Air Force," the report reads.

Plant specialists carried out a medium repair of the aircraft, having checked all of its nodes and components and having repaired or replaced those. After that, the Su-24MR was successfully tested and adopted by Ukrainian pilots.

The Su-24MR performed a flight to its main base and has already strengthened the defense capability of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

The Su-24MR is a supersonic reconnaissance aircraft that can conduct deep reconnaissance up to 400 km from the front line. For this purpose, it is equipped with a side-looking airborne radar, allowing to track ground targets, including enemy fortifications and equipment, sensitive high-resolution cameras, radio detection systems, and infrared sensors to detect camouflaged objects.
