Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine received another "modernized" MiG-29 fighter

The Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine received another modernized MiG-29 fighter. Aircraft modernization and repair were performed at the Lviv State Aircraft Repair Plant State Enterprise. This was reported by the official portal of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine ArmіyaInform with reference to the command of the Air Force.


The Lviv Aircraft Repair Plant was handed over to the Air Force by the MIG-29 fighter, which underwent repair and modernization. According to the company, the aircraft received overhaul engines, an improved radar station and a satellite navigation system. It is reported that "significantly expanded capabilities for monitoring and recording the functional parameters of the technical condition of the aircraft, engine and a number of on-board systems". This modernization, according to the plant’s specialists, will allow the aircraft to last at least eight years.

The aircraft was accepted by the engineering staff aviation parts and departed to the place of deployment.

As previously reported, Ukraine cannot independently carry out the appropriate modernization of the existing fleet of MiG-29 fighters due to the severance of all economic ties with Russia. Ukraine is experiencing particular problems due to the inability to purchase radar equipment in Russia. And due to the fact that the light MiG-29 fighter is the main aircraft of the Ukrainian Air Force, the problem with its repair and modernization was very acute against the impossibility of acquiring new aircraft.

As a senior source in the Armed Forces of Ukraine explained, any “modernization” that is announced with great fanfare in Ukraine is conditional. In fact, the aircraft prolongs airworthiness by improvised means.

As Ukrainian media previously reported, in total Ukraine owns approximately 45 MiG-29 fighters in the MU and MU1 modifications. All of them must be upgraded to the МУ2 level, which allows the use of guided air-to-surface missiles and adjustable bombs.

    Well, of course, they are far from our latest modifications, but modernization is still underway. Unfortunately, I probably can’t find the Ukrainian article, and the article is in Ukrainian ... But the instruments are changing. Not only the extension of the resource .... However, I will try to search, I think it will be interesting to specialists ...

      Resellers of the resource have neither documentation nor qualifications for extending the resource ... all the more so, there is no guarantee that the plane was dismantled at all ...

        Apparently they did not have long to renew the resource.
        The degree of degradation of Ukrainian military aviation is clearly demonstrated by the data of another British analytical publication, The Military Balance. According to them, after all the efforts to strengthen the Air Force undertaken by the government of Petro Poroshenko, at the beginning of 2018, the Povitryan Force of the Zbroyni Forces had only about 80 MiG-29 and Su-27 fighters, 14 Su-24 front-line bombers, 31 Su-25 attack aircraft 47, as well as about XNUMX helicopters.

        At the same time, it is real that due to the unsatisfactory state of technology and the lack of trained personnel, no more than two thirds of the cars could rise at best. The average raid per year in the Ukrainian Air Force at that time was 40 hours. For comparison, recall that the same indicator in 2018 in the Russian Air Force was more than 100 hours.


        Such a critical situation prompted the Central Research Institute of Arms and Military Equipment of the Armed Forces to analyze possible schemes for updating the Ukrainian Air Force fleet. The main conclusions reached by the Central Research Institute of Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the course of the study were recently published by the Ukrainian Defense Express information resource in a note with the indicative title “How to save Ukrainian aviation. What can be the Air Force of Ukraine in 5 years. ”

        The current state of affairs is represented by the Ukrainian military as follows.

        According to the Ukrainian Air Force command, the existing fleet of military aircraft, taking into account the extension of their service life and resource, will allow Ukrainian pilots to operate the MiG-29, Su-27, Su-24 and Su-25 until 2025. Maximum - until the 2030th, but this, as they say, is already the "edge".

        In Lviv, MiG repair company, starting from MiG 15 onwards.
        Since the war years there. And after 1991 it was already being repaired in an independent building, including for Kahastan, for example, they collaborated with MiG until 2014.
        Surely there is the necessary documentation.

      Very creative modernization, I must say.
      MiG-29, the Ukrainian side has enough, the aircraft is outdated, with whom they are going to conduct air battles and themselves do not know, so they are trying to make a fighter out of a fighter like a bomber or attack aircraft. Hang on the fighter good old X-29, and in some incomprehensible way combine all this with on-board equipment (also mysterious) - this is where all the creative ends.

        Do you have any idea who they are going to conduct air battles with? Especially since after 5 years they will have to write off all of their fighters one way or another due to wear and tear.
        Two Ukrainian enterprises The state-owned enterprise Artyom Engineering Company and Radionix are part of a cooperative program to develop a new aviation missile based on the R-27 air-to-air missile. For this, two options for upgrading the rocket have been worked out. According to the first, the Artem enterprise adds an additional engine with rudders to the design of an aircraft missile. This will expand the area of ​​destruction of the R-27 Variant rocket, the effective range will reach 55 km. According to the second, it is planned to equip the R-27 with three new control systems, including an infrared seeker, an active and passive radar seeker, which are protected from enemy interference. This is done by Radionix.

      You don’t even have to search. How can a major overhaul of an engine be made without spare parts? And even with the availability of spare parts, capital can be made by a factory - manufacturer or a specialist in engine repair plants. Lviv plant - just repair mainly on the glider, replacing the filling. Another bandera nonsense.

      The 117th Lviv Aircraft Repair Plant is a rather well-known in its time ARZ. It was created back in 1939 in the month of October, as an aircraft repair workshop of the Red Army Air Force. in Soviet times, he specialized in repairing MiG aircraft. The plant mastered the repair of MiG-29 in 1992 ... And unlike the Lviv Atomic Plant, which ordered a long life, this enterprise still lives and is engaged in aircraft repair ...

    Ukrainians cannot buy for this aircraft not only the airborne radar, but the whole complex of navigation and landing equipment. Previously, enterprises of the 6th Main Directorate of the MPI of the USSR produced it with the participation of Kiev and Khmelnitsky enterprises. Now everything is made only in Russia. And airfield complexes RSBN and landing. Are Ukrainians satisfied with the situation? Will abroad help you?

    There are not even power bolts for attaching aircraft structures.
    And where to get the airborne radar.

      There would be a desire, but there would be opportunities. An example of how Iran created a new airborne radar for its Phantoms, but Ukraine can buy a radar if desired.
      the other day, local media published a photo story about the visit by the commander-in-chief of the army, General Abdulrahim Mousavi, to one of the Iranian air forces, where they showed him a self-upgraded F-4E Phantome II fighter, which received a new radar station.
      As military expert Yuri Lyamin notes, compared to the old one, this radar has improved characteristics for detecting various targets and is based on a modern digital element base.

    How not to upgrade a 35-40-year-old aircraft, and you can’t add a resource to it. The engines have already gone through 3-4 overhauls. All "improvements" are a substitute for analogues that the manufacturer will no longer give.
    You can, of course, say that the Armed Forces of Ukraine received another combat unit, but I think that the pilots in their hearts are afraid of flying on what the hands of the "Ukrainian military-industrial complex" touched. Especially after reports of constant cuts on substandard.

      This is approximately the case.
      Ukraine had serious problems with the repair and modernization of Soviet MiG-29 fighters due to the sanctions introduced against Russia. Lviv Aircraft Repair Plant reported that it had lost the opportunity to purchase Russian spare parts for fighters, which is why it did not fulfill the contract for updating aircraft. In particular, the interlocutor of RT in the command of the Armed Forces said that restrictive measures against the Russian Federation do not allow the purchase of radar equipment. Experts note that attempts by Ukrainian specialists to independently upgrade the MiG-29 can make the operation of the machine unsafe.
      A statement has appeared on the official website of the Lviv State Aviation Repair Plant (LGARZ, part of Ukroboronprom) that the company is experiencing difficulties in repairing and modernizing light MiG-29 fighters due to Kiev’s anti-Russian sanctions and the breakdown of military-technical cooperation with RF


      Until 2018, we most likely supplied spare parts to them. What next.
      in June 2018, Kiev replenished the sanctions list and imposed restrictions against 14 individuals and 30 legal entities of the Russian Federation, including enterprises of the military-industrial complex. In this regard, LGARZ lost the opportunity to legally acquire the necessary products in Russia.


      Most likely they can buy through third countries or bypassing illegal routes.

      “Any other units and systems installed on MiG aircraft are, in fact, counterfeit, that is, a fake. They are definitely worse than the original. Ukraine suffered from an irrepressible desire to annoy Russia: it imposed sanctions, broke off cooperation and now does not know how to modernize these fighters. Kiev, of course, can buy spare parts in third countries, but the safety of the operation of such aircraft will be a very big question, ”explained Drozdenko.

      With all this, they steal. A message 10 days ago.

    In fact, the aircraft prolongs airworthiness by improvised means.

    Ukraine owns approximately 45 MiG-29 fighters in the MU and MU1 modifications. All of them must be upgraded to the MU2 level, which allows the use of guided air-to-surface missiles and adjustable bombs.


    And this is already quite serious.

    The Ukrainian Air Force will have to fight not against the modern army, but against the Donbass militia, and such aircraft will be able to hit both fortified objects and militia equipment, and from a height at which you can’t get them from MANPADS.

    I hope Ukraine’s plans for economic and production reasons will not work out.

      such aircraft will be able to hit ........ no military installations will be hit by such modes, the subsonic X-29 can be easily taken with “arrows” if the air defense post doesn’t miss, and the “dumping” of bombs threatens only the civilian population, and what does it have to fly it will not be long, after 3-4 overhauls, the engine will take 30-35 hours to fly, or even less if the pilot will often farce, so there’s no use for the word ....

        subsonic X-29 is easily taken by "arrows" to lick the air defense post would not miss


        If I were you, I wouldn’t be so sure of that.

        If you use the X-29 will be at night how do you hit her "Arrow", tell me?

        I looked at the performance characteristics at Strela, the maximum speed of the hit targets towards - 100-150 m / s, and the speed of the X-29 on average 250-350 m / s. That is, the “Arrow” to hit the X-29 does not work.

        Another moment of missiles can be several, and missiles can be not only X-29, but some other, for example, some Israeli ones. The United States will pay - Israel will deliver - Ukraine will apply.

          X-29s will be used at night, how do you hit her with Strela, tell me? .... for this there are air defense posts with the necessary radar equipment, the task of notifying them are the MANPADS calculations, the missiles in the infrared range glow beautifully. and night is no barrier
          the maximum speed of hitting targets towards - 100-150 m / s, and the speed of the X-29 on average 250-350 m / s ..... it is a pity that the calculations of MANPADS tactical groups of the DNI did not know this when the hunter Su-25 was wet and MiG and Su-24 fell under the batch, do not worry about it
          for example, some Israeli ones. The United States will pay ... firstly, if something comes, it will be junk worse than the X-29, and after that it will be necessary to pay. I don’t even remember when they are striped. Yes, however, that side of the curtain gave something for free, and you remember?

            Something I strongly doubt that the Donbass militia has air defense posts with a constantly operating radar.

            If so, they would work out missiles that are aimed at radar radiation.

            Everything that the militia shot down over the Donbass was usually shot down during the day from MANPADS by visual observation of the target and most likely shot down by Needles and probably in catch-up.

            They also have Arrow-10, but it is not much better than MANPADS, moreover, such equipment is more difficult to mask at the front line with a huge number of UAVs in Ukraine.

            The United States, for example, is allocating $ 3,8 billion a year to Israel, while it’s less for the army and Ukraine, but as it returns, aid will only increase. In order to spoil Russia and Russians, the United States is ready to fork out, and not only they. In Afghanistan, the majahideen received French mines, American MANPADS, for example, and obviously did not pay for it.

            In general, 45 MiG-29s in Ukraine is a problem for the Donbass and should not be ignored.
