Russia's Rosoboronexport arms agency says Indonesia has closed a barter deal with Moscow to receive eight Sukhoi Su-30MK fighters in return for palm oil. Worth around $250 million, the aircraft are expected to be delivered by the end of this year. Indonesia, which already operates four Su-27/30 fighters, also paid for a 2003 acquisition of Mil Mi-2 utility and Mi-35 attack helicopters in part with commodities.
