Mig-29М2 in the "Egyptian" color "lit up" in the network

26
The first model of the Russian MiG-29М2 fighter, built for the Egyptian Air Force, "lit up" on the web.
Photos of the machine with the tail number 811 were made by spotters at the end of March 2017, on the territory of the Flight Research Institute named after M.M. Gromov in Zhukovsky. Pictures led resources MenaDefense and Airplane-pictures.net., Transmits Defence.Ru

It is assumed that the first such aircraft will be handed over to an Egyptian customer in the second quarter of 2017.
Mig-29М2 in the "Egyptian" color "lit up" in the network

As the bmpd military blog reminds, for the first time information on the negotiation of a contract for the supply of 46 fighter jets to Egypt, the MiG-29 M / M2, appeared in an article in the Vedomosti newspaper in May 2015.

And 5 February 2016, the deputy head of the MiG Russian Aircraft Building Corporation, Alexey Beskibalov, reported that Rosoboronexport signed a contract with a North African country in April for supplying “more than 2015” MiG-50М / М29 fighters of new construction. And the first two were supposed to ship at the end of 2 year.

MiG-29M2 is a Russian double-seat multipurpose fighter-bomber. The aircraft can effectively solve the tasks of patrolling, intercepting air targets, escorting attack and military transport aircraft, striking at ground (surface) objects, aviation supporting ground forces and landings, isolating the combat area and conducting air reconnaissance.

    Not a bad contract.

      In general, at the presentation of the MiG-35 they said that in April of this year, eight sides will be sent to Egypt. Why have the deadlines been postponed? After all, contracts with foreign countries are now a priority for us, and it cannot be said that DGC lines are overloaded. In one of the groups, the guy who collects the fighters wrote that this is still the MiG-35, and not the MiG-29M / M1 (2). They have differences, the MiG-35 is already going with the ability to install AFAR (on the MiG-29M / M1 (2) it will have to tinker with and avionics still have differences, like it has a contraption tracking the launch of a missile, so as not to lose time, sends a command bypassing the pilot directly to the rocket). The engines on the MiG-35 are digitized, like on the T-50, a new generation helmet-mounted system and a compensating suit that allows more time to withstand overloads of 8 G. For it, the engines are upgraded, which will increase its BR to 1200 km. But let's see, I think about this we will have information, because in due time even capricious Hindus requested information on the configuration of the Egyptian MiGs.

        In theory, DGC refused to name the M2 as an export machine, and so as not to confuse customers, they now call the MiG-35. But they are collecting for Egypt the latest, most advanced modification. Nevertheless, the M2 configuration is somewhat outdated by avionics. M2, but in our media they continue to name apparently by tradition.

          Perhaps it is. When information about the conclusion of the contract only appeared, the Egyptians stated there that they would not mind buying the MiG-35, when it was launched into production. We will see. I hope the MiG finally gets things going.

            Before the revolution, city people wore such colors. Hence the expression itself wink

          This is an April Fool’s throw. On the official site of the UAC there is a transcript of the last meeting of the board of directors of the UAC, there is nothing similar there. And this pepper has no links. The Russian president, on the contrary, praised DGC for overfulfilling the MTC plan. RSK MiG is a legal entity, in order to start the takeover procedure, it is necessary for RSK to be completely bankrupt and incapable of fulfilling its duties. In fact, DGCs have even greater prospects than Sukhara, as the demand for fighters of this class is two orders of magnitude higher than the weight. He fulfills his obligations, he has orders for the next few years at least 220 boards, this is only for our VKS and Egypt. And still a good opportunity in India from 130 to 400 aircraft, Latin America, our officials from the KLA and Rostec announced that on April 4-7 there would certainly be a pair of it. Kazakhstan can buy a couple of regiments, they bought Su-30, but they need to rearm two old MiG-29 regiments. Southeast Asia. Also, the UAE will create the five LFI. There are no legal reasons for this action, they are completely absent. And the action itself can flow into the political plane and bring down all orders, which is suicidal for us. Although this is a very tidbit of course for competitors.

    It was necessary to completely paint the plane in such a spotty coloring, and not just its upper part!

      Everything is fine, the sky in northern Africa is just this color (Azur blue). In the 2nd World Allies, their planes in Africa painted in the same color (bottom). I think after that there nature and weather conditions have not fundamentally changed.

      This is a disguise from observation from above when the plane is on the ground.

      The Saudis “help” not without their interest. Mistrals for this help are acquired, etc.
      I am glad that the MiG has a job. A full-fledged MiG-35 may finally be born. hi

      The Ministry of Defense of Egypt is largely funded by the Saudis. The rest is tourism and agriculture. Somehow I tried an Egyptian artichoke. Disgusting thing.

            why Egypt ka-52? I do not understand well.
            maybe they are preparing a barter of mistral for other equipment?
            or ka-52 on the mistral?

              For some reason they bought a helicopter carrier, and now we need to equip it

              Ka-52 for Egypt. Characteristic camouflage, and, notably, an elongated wing and 6 suspension points.

    Like two years ago they said that there would be no MiG-29 with the designation M2, it would be called MiG-35. Or is it just for our air force?

      Oh, there the devil will break his leg.
      That was originally MiG-29, based on it they made the MiG-29M, which no one had ever bought. Then they made another MiG-29M, not the same as the one, but there were no buyers for it. Then they wrote “MiG-29” on board the MiG-35M, in the hope that at least someone would buy it. India was even offered, they did not buy. Syria only, it seems, was going to acquire two dozen MiG-29Ms, but ... then, after all, Assad was not loved by anyone, not even Medvedev.
      Then, on the basis of that, the MiG-35 made another MiG-35, which differs from its predecessor in many ways, except for the name. But here Egypt also wanted to acquire the MiG-29M. Here, it’s kind of like, the contract is being executed slowly.
      And all this time, which is annoying, many high-ranking officials, both from the Moscow Region and the military-industrial complex, have prophesied that the serial production of this aircraft is about to begin for the Air Force / VKS of the Russian Federation. Just something no shifts. Well, besides regular articles on sites like this, about how powerful this MiG-35 will be and what danger it will pose to the American F-35 without even leaving the runway wassat

    “Poor” Israel right now will ask for the Fi-35 Schaub to defend itself against the Arab threat, then the great and the elite will tell us about how wretched the MiG-29 is, and how beautiful the Fi-35 is, and they have friendship and chewing gum with Egypt. Do not buy it - they hate Israel so much, it’s just impossible to describe in words, it must be seen. By the way, the Israelis also reciprocate.

    That’s the answer, yesterday there was information that the MiG-35 was lit in “desert” colors on satellite images. "Experts" have already suggested that he will be tested in Syria. Everything turned out to be much simpler.
