Mig 29 AESA upgrade for IAF
confusing news. the original plan was to go with zhuk me not aesa version.
self delete . double post.
do you realise if upgrade our mig29 would be equally good or better than pak f16, their front line fighter.
A few years ago I used to have major respect for Jane's, but the quality of their information has gone down drastically.
The thread is for MIG-29 AESA upgrade..
Post related to LCA moved to LCA thread for better results.
can you pls tell me how much time these update will take place , and how effective will be mig 29
I can tell you it will be no time soon. The Zhuk AE at MMRCA trials was a dismal failure and the main reason MiG-35 wasn't selected, not to mention faked TBOs of engines. Phazotron is bankrupt and the state refuses to bail it out. Not only has it failed to repay Alpha-Bank's judgement, Tupolev has another claim for 193 million. Not even Russia is ordering MiG-35 to bail it out, much less denying claims.
