LANGKAWI (Malaysia), March 22. /TASS/. Russia has prepared another, more flexible variant of modernizing MiG-29N fighter jets currently in service with the Royal Malaysian Air Force, the director for international cooperation and regional policy at Russia's defense industry conglomerate Rostec said Wednesday.
"We arrived at this exhibition with a good modernization package, more flexible than before. This modernization will add more functions to the Malaysian MiG-29N, including an ability to engage ground targets," Viktor Kladov, who heads the joint delegation of Rostec and state arms exporter Rosoboronexport, told reporters at the Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA) in Malaysia.
Russia’s previous modernization plan was rejected by Malaysia due to high costs. Russian Aircraft Corporation MiG, the aircraft's manufacturer, prepared and sent another variant of the upgrade to the Malaysian side.
