The first batch of five Su-30SM are intended for the Russian Navy Black Sea Fleet 43rd Independent Naval Shturmovik (Assault) Air Squadron in Crimea (currently operating Su-24M and Su-24MR).

In September 2014, the Russian Ministry of Defense ordered a second batch of Su-30SM from Irkut Corporation. The new contract worth about 13 billion rubles ($250 million) is for seven Su-30SM for the Russian Navy.

A separate contract for 60 Su-30SM for the Russian Air Force was signed in March 2012 with delivery by 2016.
     
Based on the Su-30MKM and MKI variant for export, the Su-30SM is a specific variant for the Russian military produced by Irkut Corporation. The new version has been upgraded according to Russian military requirements with a new Bars-R AESA radar and specific radio communications systems, friend-or-foe identification system, ejection seats, weapons, wide-angle HUD and other aircraft systems.Su-30SM of the Russian Navy Black Sea Fleet 43rd Independent Naval Shturmovik (Assault) Air Squadron in Crimea

According to Irkut Corporation, Su-30SM are super maneuverable twin engine jets, equipped with phased array radar, thrust vectoring engines and canards. The fighter is able to use modern "air-to-air" and "air-to-surface" high-precision weapons.

The Russian Navy Su-30SM are not intended for the Russian aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov but operate from naval aviation bases on land. They have a two-tone dark gray camouflage and bear a St. Andrew's flag (Russian Navy Ensign) painting by the cockpit.
