Media: Defense Ministry will order 16 fighter jets MiG-29CMT

The Ministry of Defense will sign a contract with the Russian Aircraft Building Corporation (RSK) MiG for the supply of 16 fighters MiG-29MT with the amount of the deal up to 16 billion rubles.


The contract, the conclusion of which is planned in the near future, will allow the RAC MiG loading to be maintained for the period up to 2016. An option for a second batch of fighters is also not excluded, Kommersant reports.

The availability of the agreements reached on the purchase of 16 fighters MiG-29CMT told the publication a source in the Ministry of Defense. According to him, the decision to purchase aircraft of this type was made in parallel with the decision to transfer the contract for 37 fighter aircraft MiG-35 for three years.

Recall that, according to the updated plans, the military will sign a contract for the MiG-35 in 2016 year, transferring the costs of the state armaments program in the amount of about 37 billion rubles to a later period, as requested by the Ministry of Finance. At the same time, as the high-ranking interlocutor of the newspaper explained, the pace of renewal of the air force fighter fleet will be maintained.

“In principle, according to the results of tests conducted in 2011 during the Indian tender, the MiG-35 showed the necessary characteristics: in particular, he was the only one among all the participants in the competition who was able to overcome the tests at high altitudes. In the next three years, RAC “MiG” will have every opportunity to calmly and without haste to finalize the aircraft, to prepare it for launch into the series, ”he said.

"In the meantime, we will work together on the MiG-29CMT, which are already in the army, at the same time supporting the industry," the source said. A contract with a maturity date of up to 2016 will be concluded soon. According to him, given the technological and production capacities of the MiG Corporation, there should be no problems with the timely execution of this transaction.

"The decision is about the purchase of new fighters, and not about the modernization of the old - a fundamental one," the source added.

To date, the 28 MiG-29CMT are at the disposal of the Russian military. In the 2008 year, after Algeria’s refusal to accept these planes due to quality claims, the Ministry of Defense agreed to take them. All of them have been flawed, repaired and refurbished to meet the requirements of the RF Air Force.

      This information was in parallel with the information about the abandonment of the MiG-35 until 2016. In the commentary to that article, I posted a link to such news. It's just that at that moment no one wanted to hear about it. "all-prop-client-going" is starting to gain fashion. Nobody wants to independently seek confirmation of information.

      One unnamed source of the merchant testifies to the refusal to purchase the MiG-35, and I have not seen any official statements. This, in fact, puts the news of the abandonment of the MiG-35 in the same category of "ringing" hi

    It will order well, but why did they refuse from 37 instantly -35 at the request of the Ministry of Finance? 16 and 37 is there a difference? Or maybe I don’t understand what?

      It also says "In the next three years, RSK MiG will have all the possibilities to calmly and without haste modify the aircraft, prepare it for launch into series."
      As a result, all the same, the Indians were not so easily abandoned.

            And this is the reality .. we are talking about 105-110 hours. Although the video is January and for 2010-2011, during this time it seems they raised the ceiling by 40 hours. So don’t worry.

    There are suspicions that the aircraft is underdeveloped Then there would be no decision to purchase 37 units.
    Oh, do not darken you, a high-ranking interlocutor.
    Why would people hang noodles?

      Yes, there is such an opinion, because no one saw a new (and not upgraded from an old aircraft) MiG-35. And the Zhuk-A radar is constantly delayed, on the MiG-29K there will be a Zhuk-M, and on the MiG-29SMT, probably too.

    I will say this according to my sources, the reason is that the Air Force does not want to take a moment 35 without AFAR

    MOSCOW, Aug 20 - RIA News. The transfer of purchases of 37 MiG-35 fighters from 2013 to 2016 is related to the industry’s unwillingness to fulfill this contract, Deputy Defense Minister of the Russian Federation Yury Borisov told reporters on Tuesday.

    MiG-35 is de facto unprepared. Radar no. The fact that they wanted to enter at best goes like MIG-29M / M2

    people yesterday found a service for checking fines in the traffic police by the state number of the car, otherwise I had a bit more fines than I thought. By the way, there they can be appealed, I was canceled two fines :). You can check your fines yourself, here is the site - http://redir.ec/mvdbaz
