Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) has increased the repair and overhaul (ROH) capability of the Sukhoi Su-30 MKI aircraft from 16 to 20 every year and the earlier turnaround time which was 30 months has now been reduced to 15 months, which comes as a boost to Su-30MKI fleet often called as the backbone of fighter fleet with IAF.
HAL had set up the Su-30MKI ROH facility at its Nashik Plant where the facility provides full maintenance support and enhances the serviceability of the Su-30(MKI) fleet throughout its life cycle.
HAL is also using the Nashik facility to strengthen the airframe of the Su-30MKI which is to be integrated with the air variant of BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles and soon will also have ROH capability for the AL-31FP engines.
