Russia's Military Cooperation with Angola

The African Executive ran a story in its 23-30 October 2013 edition titled "Surfing Russia's Military Cooperation with Angola" by Kester Kenn Klomegah, an independent researcher and freelance journalist.  He questions the need for Angola's recent purchase of high performance SU-30K fighter aircraft from Russia.  I am quoted in the article.  Uganda and Ethiopia have also purchased this aircraft or have shown serious interest.

  1. A fighter aircraft is a forces aircraft designed primarily designed for air-to-air combat opposed to other aircraft,[1] having the status of conflicting to bombers and attack aircraft, whose key mission is to attack ground targets. The hallmarks of a fighter are its hurry, maneuverability, and insignificant size next of kin to other combat aircraft.
