Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation has offered to modernize Malaysia’s MiG-29N fighter jets to MiG-29SM.

Russia also intends to deliver repair services, Sputnik news reported today.

"We are ready to provide full repair for these fighter jets and modernize them to MiG-29SM. We have brought a MiG-29SM simulator to this exhibition," a representative of Russia's United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) told Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, during his visit to the international aerospace and maritime exhibition LIMA-2017.

MiG-29SM is a multi-role combat aircraft carrying high-precision weapons capable of destroying air and surface targets. The series is considered to be one of the best jet fighters of the fourth generation.

The prime minister listened to the UAC's offers concerning Russian combat aircraft MiG-35 and MiG-29K (carrier-based). The Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA) is an annual event taking place in Malaysia's resort Langkawi.

This year the exhibition will last from March 21 to 25, with Russia presenting fighter jets, submarines and amphibious aircraft. LIMA is the largest exhibition in the Asia Pacific region, which accounts for 45 percent of Russian military equipment sales.
