This Beskibalov told in Nizhny Novgorod at an event dedicated to the 84 anniversary of the plant "Falcon".

"Rosoboronexport signed the largest contract for the entire history military technical cooperation, on which we have to deliver more MiG-50М / М29 aircraft to 2 ... This will load the capacities of our joint venture and Lukhovits and Nizhny Novgorod before 2020 of the year ”, He said, adding that “the contract was signed in April 2015 of the year” and the customer is “one of the countries of North Africa”.

“This contract is already in force, an advance has been received for it and financing has been arranged at the Nizhny Novgorod plant,” the general director said. “We have to ship the first two aircraft at the end of this year.”

According to the blog, we are talking about the supply of aircraft to Egypt. For the first time about this transaction reported in May last year, the newspaper "Vedomosti".

        Great news, no matter who buys! The main thing is that the train will go to the Mikoyan Design Bureau!
        And then, basically in the SU partners partners open their mouths!
        And MIGs are also great planes! Moreover, they are also developing the 5th generation!
        They also need finances for this!
        I am very glad to see in our system both MIGs and DRY and YAK! Brothers! soldier

          I don’t know, there are rumors that the MiG was blown away a long time ago, as a company they lose to Sukhoi in all respects, both in design and production, and just in organizational. Will they overpower this contract?

            VP Given the size of Russia, which car would you bet on? Definitely Dry! MiG, although a fighter, but has its own tasks - a front-line fighter, which should control the air. space on the battlefield, and if necessary, support troops on the ground. Because of its size, it is better for him to work on the earth than Sushki.
            Money was not given to Mikoyanovtsy or there wasn’t !? The market for such a machine is much larger than that of this. Su-27. Small countries are much larger than large ones. Yes, and poor countries can not afford heavy fighters, they would be cheaper. hi

      Why not buy ..? The plane is excellent and more than modern. Not expensive. The country is not called, but I think sellers / buyers already know where they are delivered. We will soon find out - you can’t hide such a contract in a bag.
      The customer receives modern weapons, our factories orders, workers work and the country replenishes the budget. Everyone is happy.

        What is interesting in twins! With Saudi money, Egypt is pumping weapons from Russia. Either the United States acts indirectly through the Middle Eastern manarchs (although why? Do they make a counterbalance to Israel from Egypt?), Or the monarchs have completely lost touch with the State Department, make a counterweight to Egypt from Israel, their wards from North Africa, and are trying to secure the Suez Canal ...

    Egypt buys, they have already paid the advance. They also want to buy the MiG-35, but he is just getting ready for testing. This information was voiced on our resource and now it was confirmed. There is also Peru, Syria, Serbia, Iran. Let's hope that everything will grow together with these contracts.

        This is understandable, Sergey Korotkov spoke about this, but the state decided to do just that and most likely due to the fact that in the next two years expensive Su-35s will be purchased and the production of the T-50 will begin, which is very expensive. I think that this was the real reason for the postponement of the adoption of the MiG-35, it was ready for the series two years ago.

And this happened in our aviation during the USSR, and now it continues ... He who gets closer to the body gets it government orders and development subsidies ...

      Well, and, it seems to me, the military top elite influenced when it decided that our aircraft did not need light fighters ...

      Personally, I am glad that the MIG received this order ... I would have been glad even more if Migari went to our VVS-VKS, especially the upgraded Mig-31s, and even better - a new machine that absorbed the 31st all the best ...

          And they are now engaged in imitation of violent activities to support KSA in Yemen. The main thing is that they should not be seriously harnessed seriously for the Saudis.

    In the case of receiving both the MiGs and Rafaley, Egypt will become the owner of a brilliant but incomprehensible collection of multi-role fighters from all world manufacturers.Tut and the F-16 and Rafal with the Mirage 2000 and MiG-29M2. It remains for the sake of completeness to purchase Chinese clones of the MiG-21 (for replacement) J-7) something like J-10B.

      In addition to military motives, there is also politics.
      If the government is capable of implementing serious trade contracts, the chances of being overthrown or bombed are reduced significantly.
      Gaddafi did not buy Rafali, for example.
      Well, here we are talking not only about "Rafals" and their service for a decade ahead, but also about the whole complex of trade and industrial ties that need to be developed.

        Well, here we are talking not only about "Rafals" and their service for a decade ahead, but also about the whole complex of trade and industrial ties that need to be developed.

        So, who would object. There are means, let them indulge. Another thing is that it is not entirely clear why Egypt needs such air forces. From the West and Israel it still will not help, but for other opponents it is redundant. But this is their business.

    Egypt feels guilty for the attack on a Russian passenger plane and therefore does everything to make amends - conscious apparently.

      The contract was concluded before the attack - in April

    "Rafali" - for show-offs, MiGs - for work soldier

      Most likely: Mig-29M2 as a replacement for the Mig-21 for the air defense system, F-16 for gaining air supremacy, Rafal and Mirage 2000 as projectiles.

    The Syrians would rent several MiGs. You look, and someone else will be interested in buying ... Dreams, however. And design bureaus and factories for a very long time were almost inactive. This contract would be fulfilled without jambs.
