Over 230 new and repaired aircraft and 158 helicopters were delivered to the Russian Aerospace Forces last year, Russia's Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov told the country's Supreme Commander-in-chief, President Vladimir Putin.

"In 2015 defense companies admitted and delivered new and repaired models for the Aerospace Forces: over 230 aircraft, 158 helicopters, 191 radar stations, four battalion kits of S-400 surface-to-air missile systems, over 35,000 airborne weapons, nine launch vehicles and spacecraft," Borisov said during the national defense product admission event on March 11.

In addition, there were seven launches of carrier rockets which put in orbit eight military satellites, the deputy defense minister said.

"All the equipment stood the tests and was delivered to operating organizations to equip and train their personnel," Borisov said.
