Ukrainian-Polish Consortium To Supply 40 R-27P1 Missiles For Polish MiG-21 Jets

The consortium formed by Ukraine’s Spectechnoexport and Poland’s WB Electronics has won a contract to supply aircraft weapons for Mikoyan MiG-21 fighter jets of the Polish Air Force.

The military equipment inspectorate of Poland's National Defense Ministry reported on its website that the two firms won a tender to supply 40 R-27P1 medium-range air-to-air missiles for MiG-21 fighter jets of the Polish Air Force, Interfax reported Wednesday.

The inspectorate said that the Ukrainian-Polish consortium offered the best options meeting all the technical qualification conditions. The tender was announced in October 2015.

Ukraine's Artem produces R-27 missiles, a leading defense enterprise in the country and the only manufacturer of medium-range air-to-air missiles of various modifications used to arm all types of MiG-29, Su-27 and Su-30 fighter jets on the territory of former Soviet Union.
