Flight tests of the first modernized MiG-29 Polish Air Force began

The Polish Air Force Command announced the start of flight tests of the first MiG-29 fighter, upgraded at the facilities of Aviation Plant No. XXUMX (Bydgosch).


The plane was piloted by the commander of the 22nd tactical base group aviation Lt. Col. Leszek Bіach. In total, three pilots of the 22nd and 23rd air bases, who completed the necessary training course, were allowed to perform test flights. Test management is carried out by the representatives of the contractor. One of a series of test flights involves checking weapons systems at the 21st Central Training Ground "Nadazice".

As reported TSAMTO, Inspectorate of arms of the Ministry of National Defense of Poland in September 2011, signed with the Aviation Plant №2 (Wojskowe Zaklady Lotnicze 2) a contract for the modernization of the armament 16 23-th base tactical aviation (Minsk Mazowiecki) MiG-29 fighters.

As part of the agreement, 13 single-seat fighter jets (9-12A) and three two-seater combat-fighting MiG-29UB (9-51A) will be upgraded. The goal of the modernization is to extend the life of the aircraft, at least until the 2030, to increase their combat capabilities and compatibility with the new F-16 fighter jets. The cost of the agreement is estimated at 126 million zlotys (44,5 million dollars). Works must be completed in 2014 year.

According to the requirements of the contract, the aircraft will be equipped with new avionics, including on-board computers, Mil 1553 data transmission bus, a module for protecting the SAASM GPS (Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module) signal from interference. A new chassis should be supplied by an unnamed American company.

As it is expected, the replacement of outdated analog equipment with modern systems will increase the reliability of the aircraft and reduce its weight, providing the possibility of increasing the bomb load and fuel reserves.

        Volodya. Even this .. will not, because. modernization is carried out by RSK "MiG" .. which American chassis belay
        The modernization is carried out by the type .. "half of UPG", ie. the analogue changes to digital, navigation to lasers (gyroscopes in IKV), they put the computer Baguette, MFI, and so on .... the locator is not "touched" yet!



        conclusion ... on one F-16m, foolishly bought from amers .. not far away lol

        That's just not clear (or rather, just understandable) why ours are not brought to the UPG's level, not to mention the SMT .... and after all .. "promised" wassat

    Good Hmm, survived, combining the Mig-29 with the F-16)) Modernization of 16 aircraft for 44 million and an extension to 2030? Although you can stand in the hangar at least until 2050, and there will also be a missile defense segment and everything will be fine.

      And for what money? For this money for modernization, they will acquire the floor of the FU-16, or the NATO base, the Poles will not be allowed to fly.

          This is not an unsuccessful landing, but an absolute unprofessional action
          crew in preparation for flight and in the process of approach. Stupidly killed
          yourself and the passengers. To kill the president in a plane crash, such even in a weak
          developed countries did not happen. (One was a case in Africa on a Tu-134, our crew "drove" up the mountain through no fault of their own, with the President of the African Republic)

    Well, if you change the interface bus and the processor to NATO ones, then it will cost about so much, but the fact that this is "Modernization" is simply very loudly said - it's just an improvement in data exchange with amerovskoy aircraft and data exchange systems during control, therefore they only change interface bus.

    It is not entirely clear who ultimately modernizes, and the question of the American chassis and use until 2030 is completely incomprehensible.
