Military Review

MiGam - 60!

A small celebration of the company's anniversary took place the other day in Lukhovitsy at the MIG plant. I was invited as part of a group of journalists telling.

At first, everyone was led to the final assembly shop, where they showed four MiG-29 on the line.

There are two ships here that are purchased by India on an option.

A lot of women

Two MiG-29М2. The buyer is either Syria or Serbia, as long as it is kept secret.

See the photo report from sergey_mikheyev on his page on LiveJournal:

Director General of the MiG Corporation Sergey Korotkov answered a number of media questions.

He told in particular that the Russian corporation MiG expects to conclude a contract with the Russian Ministry of Defense in June to supply the latest MiG-35 multi-role fighters.

The release of MiG-35 aircraft is envisaged in the framework of the state defense order for a period of three years, which is planned to be documented. In total, the defense industry enterprise will deliver MiG-27 airplanes to the 35 Russian military forces during the indicated period. In total, according to Korotkov, 37 aircraft of this type will be produced.

In the MiG-29 fighters will be delivered to Syria in accordance with the contract. To discuss the details of the contract for combat aircraft, the Syrian delegation specially arrived. “I think they will be delivered to Syria,” said Korotkov. He added that he plans to deliver about MiG-10M (single) and MiG-29М29 (double) fighters. Terms of contract execution Korotkov did not specify.

After a tour of the plant, everyone was taken to the airfield for viewing demonstration flights.
Soon there were pilots - Sergei Korotkov, aka Gendir MiG, Mikhail Belyaev and Pavel Vlasov in civilian clothes.

Vlasov is now headed by LII. Gromov.
"I caught such a fish yesterday!"

Factory workers also came to watch from afar.

Reserve board - MiG-XNUMHUBT also prepared for departure.

    Thank. In the general plan of the workshop, only three aircraft are visible, and the free space is in the shaft. I want everything to be jammed with airplanes, but unfortunately ...

    I am Mig 35! Chronicle of the failed battle.
    Violetta Basha.

    To rapid take-offs
    I'm not used to it
    I'm Mig 35
    And I was born - to fly!

    Invisible to the radars
    Stronger I am Zeus!
    I'm ready for the blows
    For ground purposes!

    Said in the states
    There is F22,
    And that he is stronger -
    Empty words!

    I was created was strong
    I was created was kind,
    And here I am soaring
    In the swift cobra

    But what is it? "Raptor" -
    Rushing towards me
    In a deadly attack -
    So I disappeared a candle?

    Where is he from?
    Why is it flying here?
    And the one in me
    He does not expect!

    Task known
    And the goals are known
    Nearby States
    Spend together

    With Europe, the teachings.
    But is something wrong?
    And the Raptor to attack
    Comes in. And the sign

    Chef gives me -
    Attack the hero!
    But the enemy pilot
    He told me: “Wait!”

    He got in touch
    He shouts to me - in Russian!
    “Serge, here I am,
    Nikolay I, from Lutsk! ”

    “We have been betrayed by the authorities,
    They drove us to NATO
    I was given an order
    Become a winged plague

    I was given a car
    Under the flag of a stranger
    And for Ukraine
    I have to serve!

    But remember, we are together
    Studied in Lviv,
    Oksanka do you remember
    With a swarthy eyebrow? ”

    Breaking the order
    I went east
    I got out of the battle
    Squeezing a scarf

    Shawl that for luck
    Oksanka gave me
    My Ukrainian
    Zhinka. Dark-skinned girl.

    We barely parted
    Changing our route.
    And Kharkov thought -
    Learning is coming.

    There is already a contract for shipyards for Kuzi. I hope 35 will go into the normal series. According to the idea, at least 1 regiment in each district needs to re-equip the MiG-35 to replace the old 2nd

    And SNOP is old, judging by the ZILs of 131m. It’s good that they have not lost their potential and are making excellent equipment. In Ukraine, just such aircraft are needed. And, relatively inexpensive and country supplier nearby.

    Happy holiday workers Lukhovitsky aircraft factory. This is their anniversary. The journalist apparently did not understand what was noted there, since the MIG Design Bureau is still older.
    Thank you for the photos.

    Sorry, generously, but I would like to know why 60. As far as I remember, the first MiG aircraft appeared in the 40th. It was true that it was not a company, but as a company it wasn’t 60 either. Although thanks for the photos ...

    In the internet, a message flashed about the development of a new fighter MiG with "stealth" technology, then somehow everything calmed down. Has anyone heard anything about this?
    1. Zmey_2Garin
      Zmey_2Garin 5 June 2013 22: 34
      So he is "stealth"! That is why nothing is heard about him and, even more so, it is not visible. That is to say, the position obliges.
