FSVTS announced the terms of signing a contract for the supply of MiG-29 batch to India

The contract for the supply of India 21 MiG-29UPG fighter can be concluded before the end of this year. This was stated by a representative of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSVTS) of Russia during the DefExpo-2020 exhibition, held in India.


Contract negotiations are underway with the Indian side on the additional supply of 21 MiG-29UPG aircraft. We expect to sign the corresponding contract before the end of this year.

- he said.

Also, the FSVTS noted that the Indian military is interested in buying an additional batch of 18 Su-30MKI fighters for licensed assembly in India, but this issue is still at the stage of pre-contract discussion.

As regards the additional supply of 18 Su-30MKI fighters, the Indian HAL Corporation expressed interest in supplying the indicated number of machine kits for licensed production of aircraft in India. After confirming this interest, the Indian Ministry of Defense will start contract negotiations.

- indicated in the service.

As previously reported, in service with the Indian Air Force are three MiG-29 squadrons. All of them are located in the west of the country. The deck versions of these MiG-29K / KUB aircraft are part of the Vikramaditya aircraft carrier wing.

Earlier, Indian media wrote that if the contract was signed, "Russia promised to deliver 21 fighters within 18 months."

In April last year, it was reported that India intends to purchase 21 upgraded MiG-29 fighters in Russia at a cost of approximately $ 40 million per fighter. The aircraft are equipped with modern radar, avionics, receive an improved fuel consumption and refueling system. The Indian Air Force command noted that with new capabilities, such a price is very competitive and therefore attractive.

Also in India, it was noted that the purchase of a new batch of MiG-29 is also justified due to the fact that it is not necessary to build new facilities for their maintenance. There is already a HAL Ozar plant in Nashik (Nasik).

    On the one hand, the Indian media commented that all Russian weapons are bad. And on the other hand, everything goes as it should, although it may not be as fast as we would like.

      Yes, the Indians will change their minds ten more times and nerves will pat us down the price .. And then they will still buy ..!
      Remember how proud they were when their MiG-21 was shot down by a Pakistani F-16 ..
      Although they wrote that it was a fake and yet everything is possible, because you can’t believe the world media .. bully

    Isn’t it time to officially introduce a saying proving the uncertainty of events, similar to “when the cancer hangs over”, only in relation to the Indians should it sound like “when the Indians will dance”? And, use it in official media and newsletters about the plans of the Indian military! wassat

    The Mig-29 upg is distinguished by larger internal tanks. May be longer in the air. Now this is no longer an easy fighter. They buy a r-73er, a longer-range one. After the r-73 shot down f-16 packs, the Indians respected her.

    This is not a fabulous country, but the most democratic country. The opinion of the latest military clerk means more than the opinion of specialists.

    You can laugh at India, but she buys everything officially, and pays currency for weapons and technology.
    India does not steal, as its eastern coronavirus neighbor.

    The logical choice is price / quality beyond competition.

      They deliver what they want. Though Israeli, even European. A short delivery time indicates the purchase of aircraft from storage, which is also not bad.

        So it’s kind of said that they will acquire from the availability. And we have Kursk SMT, which, apparently, will go to the Indians after modernization.

    I hate the phrase “can be concluded”, because you can’t be sure of anything with India !!!
