Hungary auctioned off fighter MiG-29

53
Hungary has launched an auction sale procedure for 23 decommissioned multi-role fighters MiG-29, the starting price for which will be 4,8 billion forints ($ 18 million). About this in its latest issue reported the British edition of Defense & Security Intelligence & Analysis.


Hungary auctioned off fighter MiG-29


20 engines from these aircraft, missiles and more than 1,2 thousand spare parts are also on sale. Bidding is scheduled for November 14-16, but their holding must be agreed with Russia. Allegedly, the fighters put up for auction last took to the air seven years ago. Nothing is known about the technical condition of military equipment, except that some of the MiGs for many years remained under the open sky at the military airfield of the city of Kecskemet.

In 1993, Russia supplied Hungary with 28 MiG-29 to repay part of the USSR’s debt. A decade later after joining NATO, Budapest decided to abandon the use of Soviet aircraft, starting to gradually replace them with Swedish JAS-39 Gripen fighters, TASS reports

        Oh, come on, you’re scumbagging ... It’s not a secret that the Ukranian Air Force was heavily plucked by representatives of the LDNR militia and that the hunters just didn’t have an aviation component for the next “hack” for the fun of Washington. Given the fact that the tender should be held with the participation of Russia, the sale of aircraft to Urkain is directly excluded, but no one will guarantee that these planes will be acquired by a third party for transfer to Urkain. I won’t be surprised if it later becomes clear that this acquisition will be made with funds allocated by the United States as part of the provision of lethal weapons to Ukaine. How will the exchange of heavily worn aviation junk in one of the countries of the former Warsaw Pact be exchanged for less worn junk is another matter, but the fact that the Air Force Ukaine can be replenished with MIGs in the indicated amount and take part in “pacifying LDN” just on the eve presidential elections in Russia cannot be ruled out. In addition, the flight crew of urkaina is trained to fly these machines.

            Bulgarians gathered to buy. The Bulgarians just have a couple of dozen MIGs that were repaired in urkain, most of which cannot fly into the sky, and what takes off causes the flight crew to have diarrhea, because they are not sure that they will be able to land the car and return home safe and sound. Along the way, they will take away living machines and components from the Hungarians, and dill will be packed with the dill that they also "restored". Well, and the latter will have to take what they give, because the choice is not great.

            For Svidomo, the entire flight crew, both active and in reserve, is trained to fly on the MiGs, and therefore problems to pick up a couple of dozen crews will not be a big problem for them, unless of course the flyers send hunters in three funny letters, because We saw the destruction of the Urkaini Air Force over the territory of the LNR almost online.

              Such unverified information was received. Although for parts for the Bulgarian MiG-ah probably fit. By the way, you are mistaken - our MiGs have never been repaired in Ukraine. The Croatian MiG-21 repaired in Odessa. And the Croats had many complaints about the quality of repairs.

            On the other hand, the adoption of the MiG-35 raises the question of training flight personnel. If the glider is in good condition, then replacing it with appropriate equipment, throwing away available equipment, can help with training. Especially if there is a demand abroad, then instead of manufacturing aircraft for training, you can immediately begin to execute contracts. But! First you need to look and count the appropriate specialists from the Moscow Region and MiG. Again, we are talking about $ 18k, and at the auction the price can go up significantly, Ukraine will want it, Baltic states, Poles with Romanians, Bulgarians for spare parts, Croats after losing almost all planes from the Ukrainian repair, Montenegrins may want their own IA, Indians in addition wink to malaysian etc.

      The Israeli Air Force uses MiG-29 fighters, which were developed in the USSR and are in service with more than 25 countries, to train pilots for fighting a likely enemy, the Second Israeli TV Channel said on Thursday.

      The report shows two MiG-29s that were leased in an unnamed state and are now being operated at the Israeli Air Force Test Center.

      "We studied them and use them for training battles with combat pilots. This is a good opportunity to test how our Air Force is able to cope with a potential enemy," said one of the Israeli test pilots.

      All clear. Both Hungary and Bulgaria are members of the NATO bloc, whose main "probable opponent" is Russia. It would be strange if they were allowed to purchase new weapons from an adversary of NATO. (Yes, they themselves do not really want to). What kind of tararam rose when the Turks said they wanted to buy S-400 from Russia. Toli is NATO's "likely ally" - Sweden.

        The article refers to stocks for the sale of aircraft with exhausted resources. If the planes are already unusable, what's the difference between Migi UTB or Starfighters ?! In points of scrap metal, both are well accepted.
        Hungary has been exploiting the Swedish Flu for several years. Bulgaria is also going to buy new 16 from these machines. Sweden is not a member of NATO! As for the purchase of Russian military equipment of the NATO countries, that is, there are already several precedents. Of course, Brussels looks at it sideways. The issue is political influence and loss of orders. But there is one more important detail. Now Russia does not have a single-engine economical light class fighterwhich is in demand in the markets of countries of the category of Hungary, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, etc. MiG-35 turned out neither cancer nor a thing. Neither to the light class, nor to the heavy class you can write it. Russia will be late in creating such a fighter with all the ensuing consequences. And even China already has several types. It seems to me that on the Buzz Yak-130 it is possible to develop a good, light, highly maneuverable fighter, although I am not an expert on the matter.

    Of course, it can be checked ... Moreover, any potential buyer, if he does not take them for scrap, will certainly turn to specialists to assess the possibility of their restoration and the cost of repair ... But as for their redemption by Russia ... Question complicated. Do we need them? And if there is someone who wants to buy these MiGs for cheap, then it will be very excellent.

    Allegedly, auctioned fighters last took off seven years ago. Nothing is known about the technical condition of military equipment, except that some of the MiGs for many years remained in the open air at a military airfield in Kecskemét.
    Kecskemét is not an airfield, but a helipad with a strip of 200 meters! And there’s nowhere to lengthen! And from this it follows that the planes did not get there on their own! And then all the consequences: no maintenance, just abandoned!
