    Does India plan on upgrading the Mig-29K with an AESA Radar anytime in the near future. If, so what are the likely options???

    The Zhuk AE was specifically designed to fit on existing Zhuk ME back-ends, so the option is there; it's only a question of need. The IN is probably fine with what it has for the time being.

    Perhaps during MLU....not straight away. Even though most of us will prefer it.

    It will probably come as an upgrade for the MLU. Zhuk AE should reach maturity by then... hopefully. =S

    Wonder if the Indian Navy would consider passing it's Mig-29K's on the IAF and purchasing Rafale instead???
