    If you zoom in you can quite clearly see the THALES/SAMTAL TOPSIGHT-I in use. There had been debate a while back as to which (if any) HMDS would be used on the UPGs for the IAF with some members stating the TOPSIGHT-I (as used on the IN's MIG-29K/KUB) would not be employed even though I had assured them it would be.



    Anyway, enjoy!

    IIRC all MIG-29Bs (around 67-69) will be upgraded by 2016./17.

    The IAF’s MiG-29UPGs, have one of the most advanced internally-mounted integrated EW suite, which includes Elettronica of Italy’s ELT-568 AESA-based jamming system (Shown in Red), which will also go on board the yet-to-be-upgraded Su-30MKI.

    It is a solid-state self-protection jammer intended to neutralize radar-based air defense systems and radar-guided surface-to-air and air-to-air missiles ,jamming against air surveillance radar systems.
