50 years of cooperation between RAC "MiG" and the Ministry of Defense of India

The embassy of the Republic of India in Moscow hosted a meeting dedicated to the 50 anniversary since the beginning of deliveries of the MiG-21 fighter jets to the Ministry of Defense of India. This event marked the beginning of the interaction of the two countries in the field of military-technical cooperation.


According to the press service of the RAC "MiG", in connection with the anniversary, Sergei Korotkov, Director General of the Russian Aircraft Corporation "MiG", presented the model of MiG fighters to the Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the Republic of India in the Russian Federation Mr. Ajai Malhotra 29K and MiG-29UPG.

The event was attended by the Air Attaché at the Embassy of the Republic of India in the Russian Federation Commodore aviation Vikram Singh, naval attache at the Embassy of the Republic of India in the Russian Federation Commodore Bhave Ajay Vinay, Deputy General Director for Marketing, MiG RSK Mikhail Globenko.

Speaking at the meeting, A. Malhotra noted that the half-century experience of joint work on MiG aircraft is a good example of the effectiveness of Russian-Indian military-technical cooperation, which is based on friendly relations between the two states.

In turn, S. Korotkov stressed that the Indian Air Force was among the first foreign customers to receive the most advanced MiG aircraft.

A characteristic feature of the key MiG fighter projects was the consistent development of scientific and industrial cooperation and technology transfer processes. In particular, the MiG-21 and MiG-27 combat aircraft were manufactured by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) under license.

As the head of RSK MiG noted, in modern projects such as the MiG-29К / KUB and MiG-29UPG, national Indian structures act as full participants at all stages of the programs.

“MiG Corporation is interested in further expanding cooperation with government, military and scientific-industrial structures of India,” S. Korotkov stressed.

        Gennady, what betrayal? It is necessary to launch it in a series, at least a hundred to make for yourself, and there you will find buyers. There is no doubt that the aircraft is wonderful, capable of competing with Rafal and the F-35. So we (Kazakhstan) are ready to consider the question of filling up to 90 units of this machine. But if the country of manufacture does not produce it commercially, then how much will its service and spare parts cost - worth its weight in gold? Very important question !
        Therefore, the future of this aircraft depends on Russia itself! The MiG-29 and all its upgrades are my favorite plane, so I’m following his fate. I really want to see the MiG-35 in the sky of Kazakhstan. hi

            In addition, the Su-30 is more effective, because the IFI, and not the airfield airborne holder. Still - with such a radius. And for the price difference is not very large.

              In fact, Mig-29, in addition to retaining the runway, can also hold caponiers. By the way, why is it commonly believed that the 29th cannot work on the ground? Still how can:

              I served in the air range in 87-89. And the MiG-29 was just that plane that worked both on the ground and on the air. But the Sy-27 only by air. This was later later modernized by the Sy-27 and made it a universal, by the way India played an important role here.

          Notice! 50 years of cooperation - and no serious dirty tricks on the part of the Indians. For that, with the Chinese, they did not have time to say hello, as they had already copied, stolen, bought our bureaucrats, etc. We also need to be friends with the Chinese, but think seven times before doing something.

      In general, of course, the Indians rejected the abandonment of the 35s, MiG probably would have survived this, but on Russian orders from our Moscow Region, there’s not much to do .. The campaign there is not the matter, but who better talk, and the French have it it turns out well .. well, nothing, but now we will learn from our mistakes ..

        I see nothing surprising in refusal. The MiG-29 is not the most successful aircraft, and even more so - it is not needed at all by our and the Indian Air Force. Su-27, and Su-30, and Su-35 are coping with all its tasks.

        So I’m somehow used to thinking through several options, but about this, what you wrote, I’ve never even drinks but they refused, because the MiG-35 was obviously a losing option, there was no proper advertising and possibly normal guarantees (a known losing option, at least for India, and maybe for Russia, who knows ...) the aircraft is crude not tested, the price is high.

      Saymoo. Most of the Soviet aircraft in local conflicts were used precisely by MiGs. Korea, Vietnam, etc. etc. . On their account, hundreds of downed western aircraft. And the MiG-29s are even armed in Germany. Y MiG-29 and Sy-27 (30) are different tasks. The first to support the SV on the battlefield, and the second to gain supremacy in the air.

        And yes, the Su-30 is an IFI. He can take on the role of both a front-line aircraft and a plane gaining air supremacy. And he will do it better than a moment, in fact. Nothing prevents us from hanging the Rafalev’s container TsU on it and cheerfully cheating.

          Of course, the Amer had a complete numerical advantage, and most of their planes were shot down by S-75 missiles.

But most of all I am delighted with the MIG-21 for what I don’t know what to like and everything, moreover, I consider it to be not fully demanded, the single-engine created in 50 has not yet become obsolete. He has a good upgrade ... and he will not be priced and fu-22 will knock down and not frown. MIG-21 THE BEST PLANE IN THE WORLD.

    By the way, let MiG fans show at least one successful operation using the MiG-29. You can even teach in which the opponents were the air forces of NATO countries. But for now, we see only a funny fact: the instant has not a single victory in the air, while it was shot down more than once, not two, or even five.

    Good date, thanks to the Hindus. They strongly support the Russian military-industrial complex. Sin is offended by them, the technique should be different.
    And MIGARI is very beautiful and cocky birds in good hands.

    Hindus are a far from stupid nation, and abandoning the MIG-35 they indicate that they need airplanes even better than this, and we need to do everything so as not to lose a client, which means only one thing needs to be developed intensively and present more interesting and innovative products in this case airplanes .....

    But most of all I am delighted with the MIG-21 I don’t know why, like it and everything, moreover I consider it to be not fully demanded, a single-engine created in 50 and still

    I completely agree with you. MIG-21 is strength and beauty. The engine thrust would be increased by 50%, plus modern electronics.

    All hi I read the comments - as if I walked across the battlefield! KB MiG - a glorious KB, but "sick" or something. There is a lack of either a manager "a la Poghosyan" or a second wind. These reorganizations of the 90s, as if all the "fresh blood" had been sucked out of him, remained "old, barely flowing." But the MiG is a LEGEND, half of the world flies on MiGs, I would like one of the vice-premieres to take this KB under the touch, we need a little jerk, help. And then, I think, we will still see the MiG of the 5th and subsequent generations, and new original ideas, and a line of buyers! fellow
