Bulgaria intends to sell MiG-29 fighters

Bulgaria intends to sell MiG-29 fighters, which are in service with the country's air force, but only after eight F-16s arrive. This statement was made by Bulgarian Minister of Defense Krasimir Karakachanov.


According to the minister, after the arrival of F-16 fighters to the Bulgarian Air Force, there will be no need to maintain the MiG-29 fleet, and their sale can serve as compensation for part of the investment costs for new aircraft. At the moment, the Bulgarian Air Force has fourteen MiG-29s. According to the previously concluded contract, the Russian MiG Corporation is engaged in their maintenance and repair until 2022.

However, the prospects for the sale of far from new MiG-29 fighters from the Bulgarian Air Force are not highly rated. Nobody will give a high price for them, in Europe there is no one to sell them, except Ukraine, which would prefer to be presented with it, and even given money for a major overhaul. The countries of Africa and Asia in general will not scrape money for such planes, and those who have money prefer to buy new planes rather than second-hand ones. An example is Hungary, which for several years has been unsuccessfully trying to sell its MiG-29s.

Recall that Bulgaria buys eight F-16V fighters, the first F-16 should be delivered before the end of 2022, and the rest in 2023 and 2024. In the future, it is planned to purchase eight more F-16s. Lockheed Martin has already received a contract for the production of eight F-16 Block 70 multipurpose fighters for Bulgaria.

      That is why it is advisable that the Russian Federation does not allow airplanes to enter dill, even by redemption Bulgarians have them with a small overpayment.

      Overpay now - save in the future yes

        Well, they won’t sell them to us, and judging by the Bulgarian press, these planes are already well-worn and are being sold because of the high costs of constant repairs.

        And the F-16s will come directly from the assembly line and you don’t need to service them? Oh well....
        F-16, if new, it will be generally guaranteed, and it’s not for nothing, you have to pay for everything in this post-Soviet world ...

          Falcons come straight from the assembly line, completely new. Bulgaria will receive the most advanced version of this wonderful aircraft!

          To guarantee the full combat readiness of new aircraft from the moment of delivery, acceptance will be carried out through the US Air Force, which will enter the process as guarantors.
          The service will cost money, but modern Bulgaria can afford such expenses. During ATS, NRBulgaria spent up to 12-15% of its GDP for military purposes. Today, Bulgaria’s GDP is 3 times greater, and military spending is only 2% of GDP.
          As part of the package for the acquisition of F-16 bl.70, several disagreements on industrial and technological cooperation were signed:
          1. Between Lockheed Martin and the Bulgarian state-owned Avianams company on the construction of a new plant in Bulgaria. The plant will serve besides the Bulgarian and all other F-16s in the region. LM will supply equipment line, train staff, as well as provide all the necessary licenses.
          2. Lokhid Martin will jointly develop with the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences / Bulgarian Academy of Sciences / a project for the production of Bulgarian drones. It is necessary to choose the companies that will participate with the Bulgarian side.
          3. “Lockheed Martin” will deliver a 3D simulator at the Military Aircraft School of the Horn of the Metropolis, for training not only pilots from Bulgaria, but also from other countries.

            Why Boyan mislead the good and gullible members of the forum? Only this deal makes up almost 2% of the country's GDP ...
            Bulgaria has officially ratified the agreement on the acquisition of multi-purpose fighter F-16 Block 70. In addition to the aircraft themselves, Sofia will receive equipment and ammunition.
            The contract value is $ 1,256 billion. The first 4 cars should arrive in Bulgaria no earlier than 2023. The remaining - at the beginning of 2024. This dealcomponent almost 2% of GDP country caused a lot of contradictions and disputes, the president of the country opposed her.

              Kind and gullible members of the forum, if something is not clear to them, ask for clarification, and do not immediately rush to accuse of deception! I will explain!
              Today, Bulgaria’s GDP is 3 times greater, and military spending is only 2% of GDP.

              By about 2%, I meant defense spending over the past 15-20 years, before the deal to acquire the F-16! It was concluded in 2019 and the contract value was, as it is written by reference, $ 1,256 billion! This raised defense spending by about 4,4-4,5%! This year and the next 5-6 years, it is planned to purchase other prominent military equipment for the ground forces and the Navy.
              Due to the pandemic, GDP will probably fall from 2021-7% by mid-8, which may debug some of the rearmament plans at a later date. With all this, military spending will not exceed the bar from 4-4,5%, which does not go in any comparison with the expenses during the ATS.
              As for the link to NewsFront, this is a propaganda resource where they drive their line. We had a lot of discussion, debate about the F16! We always have a strong opposition! Bulgaria is a democratic state, this is quite normal! In any case, the government’s intention to increase defense spending meets with widespread support among society! The army itself has the highest level of respect with us!

            Have you seen enough of Bulgarian Kiselyov, or do you believe in it yourself ...?
            On June 3, the US Congress "gave Bulgaria permission to purchase a total package of 8 multi-purpose aircraft in the amount of $ 1 billion," which actually amounts to 673 leva.
            These are approximate health or education budgets for Bulgaria per year. Or the amount spent on internal affairs and defense. With this money, the minimum pension in the country may be above the average right now.
            The difference is 1 122 000 000 billion leva, and if the law is respected in Bulgaria, such an amount cannot be spent. The will of the National Assembly - the highest authority in the parliamentary republic - has a limit of 1,8 billion leva.
            The Bulgarian people do not share the American joy and the Bulgarian officers who understand the trap the country will be in.
            The deal for the United States is close to ideal, don’t look. The contract provides for conditions for Americans because of their "features and importance." They can unilaterally change conditions on prices, supplies, equipment solutions, technical support. Everything is up to them and how they want

        Do not tell my sneakers .. rich compared to anyone with Albania or neighboring Romania?
        The Republic of Bulgaria is one of the poor European countries, which has a rather large area. Despite this nuance, the state economy is lame. GDP per capita in Bulgaria averages 23 dollars. The country survives thanks to developed agriculture and tourism business.
        Source: https://visasam.ru/emigration/vybor/samye-bednye-strany-evropy.html#i-2

        despite the fact that NATO obliges it to do so.

        You can see the source where it is registered, here among the Poles, for example, the MiG-21 is still in service ...
        And MIGs are an anachronism and smacks of nostalgia for the Warsaw Pact and socialism with the USSR.

        Excuse me, but the F-16 took to the skies in the 70s, and the MiG-29 in the 80s, so where is the anachronism? F-16 for almost half a century in the sky ...
        The Russian MiG-29 and the American F-16 are fourth-generation fighters. Both of these aircraft belong to the category of light combat vehicles. F-16 first flew into the sky in the mid 70-ies of the last century. Now this fighter is the basis of the US Air Force and other countries. MiG-29 entered service with front-line aviation only in the mid-80s. Of the 1600 built 800 fighters, 30 countries were sold to the world.

      Obviously you have problems with the analysis of information - the industry grew from 20% to 24% in 2017 and in 2019 already 28%. In the same Germany - 32%.

      From 2006 until now, GDP has grown by 173%, you respected hero of television analysis and information. Every year, wages are growing by 10-12%, in 2019 - 12,3%.

      For the first trimer of 2020, we are one of the four EU countries (Bulgaria, Romania Ireland, Sweden), in which GDP is still growing, and not drowned in negative stagnation.



      Unfortunately, I have to admit that your ability to receive, comprehend and analyze the economic situation is at the level of the television set in your room. But this does not hurt either you or me, so I wish you success in understanding the picture of the world. laughing

        So he meant that some sectors decreased, while others grew. As a result - both there and there at 100%.

        Our zomboyaschik, the mouthpiece of Kremlin propaganda, repeats all day round how bad everything is, and thanks to our helmsman we are simply a paradise on earth. And many people believe in this without enthusiasm.

      You do not have the correct information. According to all objective data, the economic situation in Bulgaria is better than that of many other countries of Eastern Europe.

    Insider information, for VO readers only! laughing
    The Bulgarian Minister of Defense of Karakachanov is by no means a hollow! He hints from his statement that there is ALREADY expressed interest in buying the Bulgarian MiG-29! Who could it be? Who needs not new MiGs and right now? Hint:

    Photo from Libya - MiG-29 without identification marks at the disposal of Havtar. It is assumed that they are from the Russian or Egyptian Air Force. Supplies are funded by the Emirates. Together with Egypt and Russia, they are allies of the Libyan Marshal. The Emirates has a very good relationship with Bulgaria! The purchase is quite possible, and negotiations are probably already underway! Russia will not mind, since the UAE will assume financial obligations under a contract for the repair of aircraft with MiG RSK. And Bulgaria will be able to sell them at a pretty good price! The Bulgarian MiG-29s, although old, are still quite combat-ready! They are certainly no worse than those who already have Havtaru! He does not need airplanes with a large residual resource!
    So, assumptions Sergey (svp67) probably true! hi
    Don’t say thank you, I didn’t tell you anything! laughing

      By the way, Bulgaria is currently negotiating with the UAE to transfer the oligarch Hiding there, Vasil Bozhkov. He is accused of major crimes. There is no extradition agreement between Bulgaria and the Emirates, and so far they are refusing the ego to transfer Bulgarian justice. It is possible that Bozhkov’s extradition will be part of the deal to sell MiGs ... bully

          And why is he hiding in the Muslim UAE? Is he a Muslim, man?

          No, he is not a fan. In this case, religion is unacceptable. UAE is an offshore paradise. There you can easily register an offshore company and legally acquire a residence permit / permanent residence. Vasil Bozhkov has already invested 1 million drams / 275 thousand. dollars / in real estate, this is a small amount for him, and it is also assumed that he stores large sums in an emirate bank. The UAE has no doubt about the remission from Bulgaria, and even if they have one with a country, they very rarely respond to requests. In short, Bozhkov found himself a comfortable shelter, although the situation may change. The Bulgarian authorities put the ego on the international wanted list through Interpol. By the way, recently there was information that “friends from Russia”, with whom he has business contacts, stood up before the Emirates authorities ... Well, the lads are supported ... laughing

    Hungary and the Czech Republic - the central European neighbors of Slovakia - use the Gripenes ... Bulgaria also intends to replace its eight MiG-29s and chooses between the American F-16s and the Swedish Gripen ...

    That is, in fact, the Americans squeezed the market from the Swedes. The rest are in line. laughing

    Eh Bulgarians "brothers" I feel you will get one F-35 and you will be eternal debtors

    There is not enough money for one F-35. Divide it in half with the North Macedonians. One day will fly over Bulgaria, and the next over North Macedonia.

    What Indians do not want to buy cheap MiG-29 countries of Eastern Europe for further modernization. Malaysian MiGs were seen by the Indians, though as a trade-in in the context of Tejas delivery.
