LANGKAWI, Malaysia, March 30 (Itar-Tass) –Six Indian MiGF-29 fighter planes have been upgraded in Russia and the remaining 63 will be upgraded in India, an official from the Russian Aircraft Corporation MiG said at the aerospace exhibition LIMA 2013 on Saturday, March 30.
He said the modernisation is carried out in two stages. At the first stage, six planes were flown to Russia, accompanied by an Indian project team, which will then teach specialists in India.
Three of the six planes have already gone back home. The other three are being upgraded at Nizhny Novgorod’s Sokol, which is part of MiG. They will be handed over to India before the end of the year.
At the second stage, the remaining 63 fighter planes will be upgraded in India by Indian specialists.
The modernisation programme was launched in 2009 in cooperation with India’s HAL.
