The SMT upgrade comes with extending the internal fuel tanks, inflight refueling system, structural reinforcement, engine overhaul and a host of other improvments that will extend the life by 4,000 flight hours and make it a 4+ multi-role fighter.Hey Vladimir or anyone else I suppose this upgrade package will keep our Mig's flying till 2020 or so. Does it also include checking or changing the structure of the airframe to extend it's lifespan or is that not needed.
