MOSCOW, August 21. /TASS/. The Russian Aircraft Corporation MiG will supply 32 aircraft to customers in Russia and abroad this year, the company’s CEO told reporters on Friday.
"The corporation will deliver 32 aircraft this year intended for both the Russian Defense Ministry and foreign customers," Sergey Korotkov said.
He noted that the MiG-29K deck-based fighters would be supplied to India. "In accordance with the contract, we will deliver 8 aircraft there," he said.
Earlier reports said that the deliveries of the MiG-29 deck-based fighters to India would be completed by the end of 2016. Deputy Director of the Russian Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) Anatoly Punchuk said in February that the Indian military had received 33 of the 45 ordered aircraft at that time.
Furthermore, the MiG corporation supplies deck-based fighters to the Russian Navy, which ordered 24 such aircraft. The company is also due to deliver a total of 16 MiG-29SMT fighter planes to the Russian Defense Ministry in 2015 and 2016, the relevant contract was signed last year.
