“We hope that Peru will purchase new jets. This is our priority. Now they are working out this issue because they understand that the aircraft manufactured 20-26 years ago end the service due to service life rate," Korotkov said.
He declined to specify when the contract might be signed. Korotkov said the contract would include “more than 10 jets”.
Peru is considering proposals from several countries, he said, adding that it had rejected several ones to “more closely” study the MiG’s.
This year the corporation will conclude a deal for upgrading the second batch of MiG-29 fighters, Korotkov said.
According to open sources’ data, at present, Peru’s Armed Forces have 15 MiG-29 fighters of modified versions. All jets were manufactured at the end of 1980’s.
The MiG-35C fighter jet is a fourth-generation multirole aircraft and a further development of the MiG-29K and MiG-29M.
