MiG-29 Aircraft

The Ukrainian Air Force has received four overhauled MiG-29 airframes, along with two L-39 jet-trainers.

The six combat aircraft were refurbished and upgraded at state owned facilities of Ukroboronprom, Chuguev-based CARZ company, and Kharkiv-based FED company. 

Besides lifetime-extending overhauls, the jets’ avionics and armament were modified within the scope for enhancing air-to-ground attack capabilities involving the unguided rockets and guns. 

The upgraded avionic systems are the modern flight recorders and navigation systems, including GPS navigation, Defence24.com reported Wednesday.

Moreover, transponders and communication suites have been replaced with their ICAO standards-compliant counterparts.
