The Serbian military department informs that the project of modernization of six MiG-29 transferred in October by Russia involves two stages, which according to the plan will be completed in 2018 year. At the same time, the Ministry of Defense clarifies that only one of the transferred fighters is currently undergoing overhaul in Russia, the other five are stationed at the military airfield Bataynitsa near Belgrade and are being modernized in Serbia.

Serbia began upgrading the Russian-transferred MiG-29


The first stage includes the installation of navigation equipment and equipment for communication on all six aircraft so that they meet international standards for communication with equipment on the ground, and the second stage of modernization implies a significant increase in airborne capabilities and firepower on all 10 machines (including existing Serbian Air Force has four MiG-29 - Ed.) at the highest technological level of modernization
- said the Ministry of Defense of Serbia.

The Office clarifies that the work on the modernization of the fighters began Russian specialists with four dozen of their Serbian colleagues based on the 204-th brigade of the Air Force of the Republic in the suburbs of Belgrade.

Fighters will be equipped with modern onboard electronics, air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons and electronic equipment for self-defense and electronic warfare.
- added to the military department

It is noted that the Serbian government allocated the necessary funds for the modernization of all 10 MiG-29 in the amount of 185 million euros. The Serbian Ministry of Defense also emphasizes that it has a sufficient number of pilots to control the upgraded fighters, which is facilitated by “joint exercises with pilots of the Russian Federation,” reports RIA News

            Serbia is, in fact, the last island of rebellious Slavicism in the Balkans. And any good news about the Serb brothers (without irony) for us becomes a nail in the ass for vultures from the USA and NATO.

              You know, I would say Serbia is a corkscrew in the cork of a barrel - Europe, and we can pull it out and the barrel will sink, along with NATO.

      In Lipetsk, Serbian pilots are still training ..? Or maybe they’ll run them in Syria ...
      Combat interaction and tactics are a great thing ... I’ll surely come in handy in the future, I’m sure!

      The MiG-29s we donated to Serbia free of charge. But the subsequent modernization - already, sorry, for the money.
      The first dose is free! smile

                Actually, it was an irony. Inspired by the comments of a good half of the readers of this article about the direction the Serbs will send these modernized MIGs. I admit openly that I have no illusions about all kinds of Slavic brotherhood, including with the Serbs. They all want to be friends for money. In this regard, I consider even the Turks more preferable customers for the supply of our weapons. Not because I love them, but because we are most likely to expect a stab in the back from them. And, therefore, I’m almost sure that there will be a magic button in Turkish S-400. I hope that it is present in all high-tech weapons for export. And the Serbs as well. I hope the meaning of my comment has become more clear?
                PS Do not be rude.

      10 cars? splinter? You all live in a multi-purpose world .. then in Syria 20 cars were crushed by the whole coalition, now these 10 old MiGs are .... by the way, what year are they? 80 x, I guess? That is, the gliders themselves are already ek? Instead of a landfill presented to the Serbs

    They are not brothers to us. The whole story is only framed. Serbs are European Armenians. Very big opinions about themselves and also critically speaking about their fellow tribesmen. They are extremely duplicitous, although there are many good guys among them, but the average degree is not high ... Yes, and these planes will not help them much, in case of a mess, and it will happen there. May God grant us not to get into this mess.

    Maybe the "brothers" are already preparing, they want to join NATO with serviceable and modernized aircraft? After all, all our former allies are already there, these are the better?

    bouncyhunter,
    Pasha, he’s laughing! "Happy holiday! I couldn’t unsubscribe in the relevant topics. Yugoslavia was a gorgeous country. Women’s boots alone were worth something and something else (forgot, sorry, senile sclerosis). How many times have we saved them, I think it’s at their genetic level that’s why they are resisting the West, and the idea of ​​equality is alive and will live. Because it’s an IDEA! Not a commodity. China, North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba (the last two are less, but I hope this is temporary ). Serbs know who they are.
