Mig29 k of navy had issue but airforce is happy with mig29UPG upgrade . Upg comes with in-flight refueling better engine , better avionics and dare has developed d29 ew suite for it which is excellent . It's just old design which has run its course. Mwf will do same job with less expenses , less maintenance and much much less rcs.Also Mig-29KUB & UPG in Indian inventory have developed a reputation for not being user friendly or reliable, along with having low availability & high operating costs... Buying mothballed Mig-29 is one thing but they'll have to be seriously impressive in MMRCA 2 for Mig-35 to be selected.
