India upgrades its fighter to the level of the MiG-29UPG

Twelve of the Indian Air Force MiG-29 fighters have already been brought to the level of the MiG-29UPG, half of them have been modernized in Russia at the RSK MiG enterprise, reports MIC with reference to the head of the corporation Sergey Korotkov.

"RSK" MiG "really fulfills the contract with the Republic of India, and in due time the contract was divided into two parts. The modernization took place on the territory of the Russian Federation, and we completed this part of the program. Six aircraft were modernized, ”said Korotkov.

During the modernization work, Indian specialists were trained. “And today, in India, they are assembling the following aircraft using their own hands and in their capacities,” he noted.

“There are about six such planes today, they are now in the flight test stage,” added Korotkov.

Earlier, he reported that upgrades must pass 63 aircraft. Last year, MiG delivered India more 10-kits to improve fighters.

            This is not surprising - MIG fighters have long been known in India and have always been the backbone of its Air Force.
            The first MIG-21EF, still without cannon armament, but only with air-to-air missiles, was assembled under license at the HAL plant (Nasik) back in 1967 with subsequent localization of production ...
            This marked the beginning of the supply of MIGs to India, which continues to this day ...

    Normal development. Than to buy a new fighter, it’s cheaper to upgrade the old one if the glider’s resource allows.

    India is the second largest market for the Russian defense industry. In 2004, more than 70% of Indian military equipment came from Russia, making Russia the main supplier of military equipment.

    The main task of creating a modification of the MiG-29UPG (9-20) is to bring the aircraft to the level of combat use, like the MiG-29K and MiG-29KUB, which are currently part of the naval aviation of the Indian Navy. Basic modifications are intended only for gaining air superiority, while the upgraded ones will be able to attack ground (or waterborne) objects, both stationary and in motion, at any time of the day. A similar task is achieved by integrating airborne and radio navigation equipment, similar to the MiG-29K aircraft, into the base model.

      Rather, we can say that the glider will be brought to the glider level SMT, and the filling to the level of the CUB.

        Done right and the car turned out good. We often say that MiGs have developed a resource, there is no need to modernize them, here's an example, Indian MiGs are also very old, but modernized and not very sourly modernized. And our MiGari go to Aviadarts as targets. Although the storage bases are full of junk.

    The greatest dignity, advantage, property of Russian weapons, any small arms, motorized, electronic, aviation, missile - there is great potential for modernization. In incredibly difficult, combat conditions it is possible due to this potential and naturally, in the hands of a specialist, our weapons are able to perform all tasks. It is bad that this is not promoted among potential buyers.

    An interesting article about a great and mighty one:
    For example, we have a table. On the table is a glass and a fork. What are they doing? A glass is standing, and a fork is lying. If we stick the plug in the countertop, the plug will stand. That is, there are vertical objects, but horizontal ones? Add a plate and a pan to the table. They seem to be horizontal, but stand on the table.
    Now put the plate in the pan. There she lies, but stood on the table. Maybe there are items ready for use? No, the fork was ready when she lay.
    Now a cat climbs onto the table. She can stand, sit and lie. If in terms of standing and lying it somehow creeps into the “vertical-horizontal” logic, then sitting is a new property.
    She is sitting on the pope. Now a bird has sat on the table. She sits on the table, but sits on her feet, not on the pope. Although it seems to be standing. But she cannot stand at all. But if we kill the poor bird and make a scarecrow, it will stand on the table ...
    It may seem that sitting is an attribute of the living, but the boot also sits on the leg, although it is not alive and has no priests. So, go and understand what is standing, what is lying, and what is sitting.
    And we are still surprised that foreigners find our language difficult and compare with Chinese.
    The theory can be deduced: that which is more vertical than horizontal — it stands; that which is more horizontal than vertical - it lies. But this theory immediately breaks into a plate - it is rather horizontal than vertical, but it stands. Although, if you turn it over, it will lie.
    Immediately on the move, another theory is deduced: the plate stands, because it has a base, it stands on the base. The theory immediately breaks into rubbish about a frying pan - it has no reason, but it still stands. Wonders.
    Although if you put it in the sink, then it will lie there, taking at the same time a more vertical position than on the table. This suggests the conclusion that everything that is ready for use is worth it (I want to say vulgarity in this place).
    But here we take one more thing - an ordinary children's ball. It is not horizontal and not vertical, while it is completely ready for use. Who will say that there, in the corner, the ball stands?
    If the ball does not fulfill the role of a doll and has not been punished, then it still lies. And even if it is transferred to the table, then on the table (lo and behold!) It will lie. Let's complicate the task - put the ball in a plate, and the plate in a pan. Now we still have the ball (in the plate), the pan is still (on the table), the question is, what does the plate do?
    If the Frenchman listens to the explanation to the end, then that's it - his world will never be the same again.
    Plates and pans appeared in it that can stand and lie - the world came to life! It remains to add that the birds are sitting with us. On a branch, on a windowsill, and even on the sidewalk.
    The Frenchman will draw in his imagination a tit sitting on a branch at the fifth point and chatting in the air with its paws, or a homeless crow, sitting with outstretched legs and spread its wings, at the metro station.
    Try to explain to a foreigner the phrase "Hands do not reach to see" or the usual evasive answer for a Russian - "No, probably ..."
    A completed sentence of five verbs without punctuation marks and conjunctions: "We decided to send to go buy a drink."
    Have a wife - the director of the bank and have a wife of the director of the bank. One dash, but what is the difference !!!…?

      Ask any foreigner who "knows" Russian to translate into any foreign phrase: Behind a sandy scythe, a lop-eared scythe fell under a fast scythe scythe of a woman with a scythe. And all participants in the action will understand how powerful the Russian language is.

      there should be a dash, not a dash.
      Secondly, it seems that you are speaking off topic: that is why the Russian language is "great and mighty" in literature.
      Secondly, for business and for the computer, this power is excessive. That is why you have a claim to the Russian language, if I understand correctly. Well, then speak your native language.
