China to Make Su-27s

MOSCOW () -- Russia has sold China a license to produce Sukhoi Su-27 interceptors in a deal expected to bring in at least $2 billion, Interfax quoted the commander in chief of the Russian air force as saying.

"The sale of the license to produce Su-27s to China alone will bring Russia at least $2 billion," Interfax quoted Pyotr Deinekin as telling military journalists.

Interfax quoted sources at Rosvooruzhenie, the state arms sales monopoly, as saying the contract was signed in late 1995.
