Russia’s MiG Aircraft Corporation has rolled out a critical g-force protection system for high-maneuverability fighter jets such as MiG-35 and MiG-29M/M2 aircraft.

Pilots now need to monitor the g-force using dashboard indicators while simultaneously conducting maneuvers during a dogfight. The new system, the company claims, works in conjunction with the helmet display system and reduces distraction caused to the pilots.

“The system allows the pilot to overcome the critical g-force level by 1-2G by exerting additional force on the stick, as well as disabling the system altogether, either temporarily or permanently,” MiG said.

Last month, the Russian firm announced the development of a new automatic, digital control system to be fitted on upgraded MiG-29 and MiG-35 aircraft for easy landing of the jets. The digital system has already undergone tests. It makes difficult weather safer by allowing the pilot to use a glide path in automatic mode quicker, and continue decline till appearance of visibility.
