In total, Bulgaria intends to buy from Hungary 1,2 thousand various parts of MiG-29 aircraft, including 20 aviation engines.
According to the latest information, the auction for the purchase of disassembled fighters will be held on November 14-16.
The information draws particular attention to the fact that the Bulgarian authorities had previously declared it inappropriate to operate the existing MiG-29. In the country's press, it was stated that the Bulgarian pilots refuse to perform training flights on the MiG-29, since the aircraft do not undergo proper maintenance and necessary scheduled repairs.
Apparently, the Bulgarian Air Force has certain types of Hungarian spare parts for MiG-29 precisely in terms of carrying out repair work.
Earlier it was reported that Bulgaria intends to purchase used fighters of Swedish production. This information is not yet confirmed.
