On the MiG-29MT in Syria will test new and promising types of aircraft weapons

18
The Russian MiG-29CMT fighter, which the Russian Federation Air Force has successfully used in Syria in the fight against terrorists, will be the basis for testing new and advanced aircraft weapon systems, said Sergei Korotkov, general designer of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC).


The program for the development of the MiG-29SMT will be continued, including with the aim of testing the effectiveness of destruction by new and promising weapons systems. The experience gained in Syria will be taken into account in the operation of these aircraft, as well as implemented in the development of new aviation complexes of the "MiG" brand, including the MiG-35
- he said.

On the MiG-29MT in Syria will test new and promising types of aircraft weapons


The general designer of the KLA specified that in September the party of the MiG-29SMT aviation complexes was sent to Hamime Air Base for testing. Korotkov at the head of the UAC delegation at the airbase analyzes the results of the use of air complexes in the operation of the Russian Armed Forces in Syria.

Participation in the combat missions of new aviation complexes allows you to confirm their reliability and efficiency, as well as evaluate the performance of the onboard radio electronics and weapons complex
- noted the general designer.

Korotkov added that during the two and a half months of operation, the aircraft made more than 140 sorties, fulfilling the task of destroying the infrastructure of terrorists. According to him, in Syria, the MiG-29SMT "carried out combat missions to defeat the bases of terrorists autonomously, as well as jointly with the Su-34 and Su-35 aircraft." He added that the MiG-29CMT also completed the task of escorting Tu-22М3 bombers.

MiG-29MT showed mobility and ease of operation with high levels of combat effectiveness. The verification of the combat capabilities of the upgraded front-line fighter, the MiG-29SMT, confirmed the operational efficiency of the regimes of use of air bombs, corrected air bombs and guided air-to-surface missiles with accuracy that corresponds to the TTZ on the complex, as well as their superior

      hi Running in combat conditions allows you to identify flaws and optimize the operation of systems, so that everything is correct. good

    And what will the MiG in this modification fly to Deir Ezzor and back to Khmeinim? Well, then I am for taking it into service with the VKS, moreover, urgently.

      It will also fly through the ancient 9-12. There is a small distance, by the standards of the aircraft.

    Testing in real combat operations will reveal all the flaws.

      Good planes. But they will stop us from working in Lebanon.
      Hope they finish their career on earth to Syrian
      the pilots did not die in vain.

    A good niche for simple and undemanding fighters, where the highest degree of technology is in second place. For the theater of Syria just right. But for opponents such as the United States and Israel, it is weak.

      Do you really think that Mig is much easier than SU. The price is different, but that does not mean simplicity.

        Export option is always much easier. What happens if they fall into enemy hands? But there are precedents, for example, the T-90A. Moreover, it is used as a bomber for the most part.

      "For the theater of Syria just right" - why? Bombers are needed there, yes. Attack aircraft and normal attack helicopters too. UAVs of different profiles. And the modernized fighter of the 80s is hardly "just right".
      He and the videoconferencing are needed as a stop signal for the hare.

    When will the MIG-35 be born in the series then?

      Already. But why?

      Radar - in the ordered batch of slotted Zhuk-M, exactly the same as that of SMT.
      Engines - slightly better (in terms of resource and maintenance, traction and economy are identical) than those of SMT.
      The use of containers (TsU, reconnaissance) is similar to SMT, that is, in no way. Rather, the MiG-35 can only be in those containers that are now in the form of layouts.
      The range of weapons used is identical at this stage.

        Given the latest news on product 30, I can assume that similar work is being done on engines for medium-sized fighters. All the same, the 35th at some points is better than the 29th SMT. It is possible that the delay in launching the series is observed precisely on the issue of new engines. Although I could be wrong. At the same time, there is still a moment of the Bug radar ... many believe that ROFAR either will not appear soon or will not appear at all. I don’t think so. I believe that ROFAR in the serial version will appear no later than 21 years old, and maybe earlier. It is this radar that can greatly change the balance of power not only in the sky, but also at sea and in the issue of air defense and missile defense.
