The issue of repairing the Bulgarian MiG-29 in Poland was delayed

The head of the commission for the defense of the Bulgarian parliament, Miho Mihov, in an interview with the portal "Bulgarian news in Russian "stated that if the issue of repairing MiG-29 fighters in Poland would be delayed for another six months, then" the fate of the strike would be at stake aviation Bulgaria. " This is reported by the blog. bmpd.

According to Mikhov, “the commission informed the Bulgarian Minister of Defense that Poland does not have a license to repair MiG-29 fighters, as indicated in the letter of the Director General of the Russian Aircraft Building Corporation (RSK) MiG Sergey Korotkov.”

“Repair was not discussed at the Defense Council. It seems that the decision was made by a close circle of people in the Ministry of Defense. It also worries me that Bulgaria can make a huge mistake by contacting Poland. ”- said the head of the commission.

He also said that the letter Korotkov will be discussed at the meeting of the commission. And before making a decision, the members of the commission will hold consultations with the Minister of Defense Nenchev.

“I am going to propose that the chairman of the Bulgarian National Assembly, Tsetski Tsacheva, hold an on-site meeting of the defense commission at the Graf Ignatievo airfield, where the fighter base is located. There will be Polish pilots with their MiG-29. The Minister of Defense and his staff must be summoned to parliamentary control in order to develop a clear position on the future security of pilots and Bulgarian citizens, ”said Mihov.

    No need to repair. It is necessary to write off and buy new ones from the Americans. The Bulgarian government is not the first to cave in. Panyanyut and dollars will be allocated. They will also resort to GDP for a loan ...

          And they don’t need planes, why do the Papuans need technology? The pilots will soon disappear as a class, only the Zlata Pyassy will remain with the little brothers, and even then until the visiting Muscovites redeem everything.

          They forgot how to grow tomatoes and cheap.
          Half of the Chinese hacienda located in the Volgograd region sends its tomato crop to Bulgaria.
          That's it.

          Of course, you can rejoice that Bulgarians buy our tomatoes, but:
          1. They sweat us the same tomatoes in the form of finished products with considerable added value.
          2. Tomatoes are grown by the Chinese. They know how to do it. Ours do not know how. She did not learn ..

      That the Bulgarians, that the Poles are faced with a choice pressed against the wall. Legally, any of their attempts to repair, automatically removes all responsibility from the Russian Federation, for subsequent operation, or rather it is not possible, since the Russian Federation will not issue them a certificate for flights, without which further operation is not possible. In addition, the supply of spare parts for Poland and Bulgaria. It is also not profitable for the Poles to tear off cooperation with the Russian Federation in this regard, despite all their Russophobia. They don’t have money for American ones, but an American friend doesn’t do anything for free.

        but they wanted to spit on certificates! The question is, how and with what were the Poles going to repair Russian engines? spare parts from the Warsaw Treaty? Or will the engine be assembled from 3 x 1? And then what? After all, there are no guarantees! And like Gogol: "Will this wheel reach Kiev?"

          The Polish repair consists in installing dviguns, written off as far back as Soviet times, with the least touch ... and from planes killed by Polish aces. Also Ukrainians could at one time sell the Poles. And without certificates, they can only make a circle above their airfield :)))))

          If you do not know dear Artyom, then the Russian Federation signed an agreement with both countries for licensed maintenance of the Mig-29, as well as for the supply of some spare parts that do not require their installation in the factory, but change in the presence of a representative of the company manufacturers, after which he puts his own stigma on all these actions and a seal painted on the acceptance of the machine.

        Poland has money. The problem is that the Polish army wants V generation F 35 aircraft. But there is a long line of people who want and must wait until 2020. Therefore, pilots must fly on Mig aircraft. Ho Polish F 16 is a very good plane.

    I wrote a series of articles on the history of the Bulgarian Air Force, so I’ll focus on their post-war development:
    After the entry of the Soviet troops into the territory of Bulgaria and the September armed uprising in 1944, the Bulgarian air force began to receive Soviet aircraft. In March, the Bulgarian Air Force 1945, the Bulgarian Air Force received 120 fighters of various modifications Yak-9 (Yak-9D, Yak-9DD, Yak-9М and Yak-9У).

    In the same year, the Bulgarian Air Force 1945 received X-NUMX attack aircraft Il-120 and 2 training Il-10U. Aircraft were used before the 2 year.

    In April, the Soviet Union transferred the 1945 dive bombers Pe-96 to Bulgaria 2 in April. They arrived there after the war to replace the German type bombers that had been in service with Bulgarian aircraft. In turn, in April-October 1947, the Bulgarians transferred the 59 "pawns" of Yugoslavia to the account of the reparation. The last Pe-2 was retired from the Bulgarian Air Force in 1956.

    Also, Tu-2 bombers and torpedo bombers were delivered.

    In 1947, the first Ilyushin ground attack aircraft arrived: IL-10 and IL-10М. In the period 1953-54. in Bulgaria were delivered produced in Czechoslovakia under the Soviet license copies of IL-10-Avia B-33, armed with 4 aircraft cannons NA-23РМ (150 projectiles per barrel). How many cars during this time were transferred is unknown.
    1. Roman 1977
      Roman 1977 29 September 2015 12: 39
      The first Bulgarian jet aircraft were the Soviet Yak-23. The first 12 Yak-23s entered the 1951th Fighter Aviation Regiment, formed in March 19. They were followed by about a hundred more Yak-23, in addition, two double Jak-23DC arrived from Romania. In total, these fighters were armed with five fighter and fighter-bomber aviation regiments, the 2nd Bomber Training Aviation Regiment and the Georgi Benkovski Aviation School. The main task of the Yak-23 in the Bulgarian Air Force was to intercept the border violators, mainly from Turkey, Yugoslavia and Greece. The Yak-23 remained in service with the Bulgarian Air Force until 1958.

      At the beginning of the 1950's, the Bulgarian Air Force received 12 MiG-15, 24 MiG-15bis and 30 MiG-15UTI. In 1960, 12 MiG-15Рbis fighters arrived in Bulgaria. In the 1955 year, two Bulgarian MiG-15s shot down an Israeli passenger aircraft L-149, which violated the airspace of Bulgaria. The Israeli pilots ignored the warnings and even tried to break away from the patrol, and the Bulgarian government ordered the plane down. A passenger liner exploded near the town of Petrich. As a result, seven crew members and a 51 passenger, including three children, were killed.

      In 1955, the Bulgarian Air Force delivered 14 reconnaissance aircraft based on the Il-28-Il-28Р bomber and one Il-28U bomber. They were in service until the 1974 year.

      In the 1955-56, the Bulgarian Air Force received 12 jet fighters MiG-17, 60 MiG-17F and 12 MiG-17PF. In addition, in subsequent years, the fighter fleet was replenished with Polish-made Lim-5 aircraft. The 1963 received the 10 MiG-17P reconnaissance aircraft. In 1956, the MiG-17 Bulgarian Air Force shot down several automatic drifting balloons with reconnaissance equipment. All MiG-17 were armed with six squadrons, while at the beginning of the 60-s did not become replaced with the MiG-19. In the 1995, the Air Force still retained the 60 MiG-17, probably not flying.

      In addition to combat, training fighters Yak-11, transport aircraft Li-2 and Il-14 (supplied by 17 machines) were delivered to Bulgaria from the USSR.

        Roman 1977 29 September 2015 12: 45
        Given the mountainous nature of Bulgaria, helicopters play a large role in transportation. Therefore, Soviet MI-1 lungs (served up to 1971 of the year) and transport Mi-4s (served to 1985 of the year) were delivered to Bulgaria.

        At the beginning of 1958, Bulgaria received 24 supersonic MiG-19С fighter aircraft, which were distributed between the 19-IAP at Graf Ignatiev Air Base (used before 1965) and the air force at Uzundievo airfield (before 1963). Later, part of the aircraft was brought to a separate squadron in Uzundievo, where they were operated until 1978. In 1966, Bulgaria received its former MiG-19P and MiG-19М from Poland. At Dobroslavtsy air base, they were used until the 1975 year.

        At the start of the 60, the era of the MiG-21 began. From 1963 to 1990, the Bulgarians received 226 11 aircraft of various modifications (F-13, M, MF, PF, PFM, U, UM, P, bis). In September, the 1963 of the 19 th Fighter Regiment received the 12 MiG-21F-13, later some of these aircraft were converted into reconnaissance version of the MiG-21F-13Р and transferred to the 26 reconnaissance regiment. Decommissioned in the 1988 year. In January, the 1965 of the second squadron of the 18 air regiment received the 12 MiG-21PF, as in the case of the F-13, some of these aircraft were converted into the reconnaissance version of the MiG-21PFR and transferred to the 26-th reconnaissance air regiment. Decommissioned in 1991 year. In addition to the MiG-21PF, in the 1965, the Bulgarian Air Force received the 12 MiG-21PFM. In the 1977-1978, they were followed by another 36 used Soviet MiG-21PFM and two such fighters in the 1984 year. All MiG-21PFMs were in service with the 15 th regiment until the 1992 year. In the 1962 year, the 26 th rap received six reconnaissance MiG-21Р. In 1969-1970 19 MiG-15М arrived at 21, these aircraft ended their service in 1990 year of 21 IAP. In 1974-1975, Bulgaria received twenty MiG-21МФ, some of which were later converted into the reconnaissance version of the MiG-21МФР and transferred to the 26-th reconnaissance aviation regiment. These aircraft were decommissioned in the 2000 year. From 1983 to 1990, the Bulgarian Air Force received an 72 MiG-21bis. Half of them were in the version of ACS (30 new, 6 used), these fighters received the 19-th air regiment, and the second half with the system “Azure”. In addition to fighting the MiG-21, Bulgarian Air Force received 39 sparok in variants of the MiG-21U (1 to 1966 year), MiG-21US (5 to 1969-1970 years) and MiG-21UM (27 new in 1974-1980 years and 6 used Soviet in 1990 year). The last training MiG-21 were decommissioned in the 2000 year, and before that, in the 1994 year, ten MiG-21UM were sold to India. For the entire time of operation, the fighters were defeated; 38; MNG; 3; 21; 13; 4; -21US and 7 MiG-21UM. Of these, only 5 MiG-21bis are now maintained in the flying state, including two Sparky. The remaining MiG-6bis fly without modernization due to lack of money.

          As training in the period 1963-1974. The Bulgarians were supplied 102 by Czechoslovak Aero L-29 Delfin, who served until the 2002 year.

          The 70s were the heyday of Bulgarian aviation. In 1976, the MiG-23 began to enter service. Total Bulgarian received 90 MIGs this modification MF embodiments, BN, UB, LAM, MLD (33 MiG-23BN, 12 MiG-23MF, 1 MiG-23ML, 8 MiG-23MLA, 21 MiG-23MLD, 5 of which Bulgarian Air Force received from Russia to 1991 in exchange for the 3 MiG-25RBT and 15 MiG-23UB). In the Bulgarian Air Force, the MiG-23 served up to the 2004 year.

          Also, the Bulgarian Air Force received 18 Su-22M4 and 5 Su-22UM, also flying up to the 2004 year.

          For training purposes, around 30 of Czechoslovak Aero L-39 Albatros were delivered, 12 of which, according to some sources, continue to be used until now, according to others - they have already been taken out of service.

          At the end of the 1970-ies began arming the Air Force NRB assault helicopters. In 1979, the newly formed fire support squadron as part of the 44 helicopter regiment received the first 4 Mi-24D.

            In 1979-1980, Bulgaria received 6 anti-submarine Mi-14PL helicopters from the USSR, one of which crashed in January 1986. In 1990, the 3 of the used Mi-14PL was also acquired. In 1983, a separate helicopter squadron received an 2 helicopter, a minesweeper Mi-14BT, one of which was decommissioned in 1985, the second equipment was removed, and the helicopter was used as a transport one. By the 2001 year, four Mi-14PLs remained suitable for flights, two of which were repaired in the 2000 year, in order to extend the resource to 2007-2008. In 2013, the Mi-14PL was replaced with AS.565MB Panther.

            In 1982, Bulgaria, the only European allies of the USSR, received 4 reconnaissance bomber MiG-25РБ (3 MiG-25РБ and 1 MiG-25RU). The aircraft entered the 12 th reconnaissance regiment. 12 April 1984, one of them (b / n 736) was lost in a plane crash. However, the speed of the MiG-25РБ in the conditions of Bulgaria turned out to be of little use for the plane, it simply did not have enough territory to accelerate, and therefore in May 1991, the Bulgarians returned them to the USSR, exchanging MiG-5LD fighters for 23.

            X-NUMX An-3 transport was delivered to Bulgaria, 26 of which continue to be used until now.

            In 1985-1991 Bulgaria received from the Soviet Union a batch of transport helicopters Mi-8 / 17.

In 1989-1990 The Bulgarian Air Force received four EW Mi-17PP helicopters that were first publicly demonstrated only in 1999. In the same 1999, special radio-electronic equipment and antennas were dismantled from three Mi-17P helicopters. The fourth Mi-17PP was "moderated" in 2000. In 2003-2004. One of these helicopters was converted into a fire-fighting one by installing a side for 3 tons of water in the cargo and passenger cabin.

              In October, 1986 Bulgaria received the 36 Su-25K and four Su-25CPKs. The aircraft were operated by 22 ibap, where they replaced the MiG-17 and the MiG-XNUMHUTI. One plane (along with the pilot) was lost in the 15 crash of April 17. The 1989 attack aircraft in 4 were sold to Georgia, and also 2008 to it in 10. Currently, the Bulgarian Air Force has 2012 Su-14.

              In 1990, Bulgaria received 22 fighter MiG-29 (18 fighter, 4 UBS). One of the planes was lost in the 9.09.1994 crash. The MiG-29 are in service with two fighter regiments (in Ravnets and Yambol). In March, 2006 was signed an agreement with RAC "MiG" on the overhaul and modernization of 16 fighters. By the end of May 2009, the contract was fully completed. Currently, the Bulgarian Air Force 12 MiG-29 and 3 MiG-29UB.

              The nineties became a difficult time for the Bulgarian aviation, there was no fuel, no exercises were carried out, the aircraft were constantly written off. In April 2004, Bulgaria joined NATO. In preparation for joining the Bulgarian Air Force in 2003, a large-scale restructuring was carried out. The number of aircraft and helicopters was reduced from 465 in 1998 to 218 in 2003. De facto, the Bulgarian Air Force at the turn of the 2004th-6st centuries. actually lost their combat capability, since most of the aircraft in service "on the list" were unfit for flight. Naturally, the new allies demanded that Bulgaria buy Western aircraft. In 9, the Bulgarian Air Force bought XNUMX piston trainers Pilatus PC-XNUMXM from Switzerland.

              In 2004, an agreement was signed with Eurocopter for the purchase of 12 multipurpose AS-532AL Cougar for the Air Force and 6 AS-565MB Panther for the Navy.

              In 2006, the Italian airline Alenia ordered the 3 light military transport aircraft C-27J Spartan. Initially, the agreement involved the delivery of five aircraft, but in 2010, the Bulgarian Defense Ministry decided to abandon the latter two. The reason for the rejection of the aircraft was the deficit of the military budget. The savings saved on the fourth and fifth Spartan, Bulgaria planned to spend on paying for the third aircraft.

              Bulgaria is currently looking for a replacement for the MiG-29. Given the pro-Western policy of the Bulgarian government, most likely, the replacement will be the American F-16, or decommissioned somewhere in Europe. The Belgians have already offered F-16MLU, decommissioned their Air Force. The Americans responded with a proposal to supply the F-16 fighter unit 52 +, the Swedes traditionally offered the Gripen fighter Saab JAS-39. However, the Bulgarians have no money traditionally. So let's see ...

                They have money now only for a "jet member" to fully join NATO, in shoes and lace panties (no time to look for a photo).

            The 70s were the heyday of Bulgarian aviation ,,
            after entering into the nature of the extinction of nothing, the great, white, brother, will conceive some sort of byaku, the Bulgarians and the infantry will do.

    Poland itself is Europe’s mistake, but the Bulgarians will not be the first to bend. Only the MiG-29 is a pity to ruin after all.

    Poland’s lack of a license to repair MiG-29 fighters

    And here Bulgaria is in flight. They turned to Poland, friendly by anti-Russian antics, without finding out basic things.

    No, the doctor said to the morgue, i.e. if you have already decided to be repaired in Poland and sit there. Besides, why does Bulgaria need strike aircraft? Why does Bulgaria need aviation anyway? They are under the "reliable wing" of the staff.

    The point is not only that Poland does not have a license to repair the 29s, but that factory repair of the aircraft is not a tractor repair, when you can do with a sledgehammer, a file and welding. After the detection of all systems, assemblies and components of the aircraft, they are replaced (which are not in the technical specifications or are close to this) with new or overhauled at the manufacturing plants. And where in Poland are these same manufacturing plants - awww !!! Honor among the Poles over the edge, and sense - O.

    Why are Migovites running around? They have the right to impose sanctions for violation by Bulgaria of the terms of service and repair. After the repair, the manufacturer of the device will be a Polish plant. Most likely, if Washington decides to fight, these MiGs will go to Dill. There the pilots are cheap, "heroic", ready for FSE. Ilovaisky flag in hand. And during a war the life of an aircraft can last from a couple of minutes to several hours.

    If after that they crash somewhere, then everyone will forget about the Poles, and they will yell that the MIGs are bad cars.
    It was like that when India turned to Israel for modernization ... and when problems with exploitation started, they tried to throw Russia against it ... and they were sent very politely and correctly.

Yes, and to remind them how they were part of the Hitler coalition against us, they saved the fact that they were not fighting against us alone. negative

    “Repair was not discussed at the Defense Council. It seems that the decision was made by a close circle of people in the Ministry of Defense. It also worries me that Bulgaria can make a huge mistake by contacting Poland, ”said the head of the commission.

    The puppet regime of Bulgaria, can not use these aircraft for anything other than to serve the interests of its metropolis - the United States.
