The MiG Corporation has developed and patented a system to limit the maximum flight modes of a fighter to prevent it from getting into a tailspin.
This system is currently implemented in the Mig 35 and the MiG-29M / M2 as per a report by UAC Russia.
“The safety and comfort of the pilot during the flight is a priority goal for our designers and engineers. The patented integrated system improves the tactical and technical performance of MiG fighters. Now they significantly surpass their foreign counterparts, ” Uacrussia reported Andrey Gerasimchuk, Managing Director of the MiG Corporation as stating.
Compared to the previous mechanical model of limited installed in the previous models of fighters - the MiG-23 and MiG-29 which prevented the pilot from fully controlling the exit of the aircraft to the maximum operating mode, the modern limiter system will allow the pilot will be able to stay within the permissible overload parameters in any flight mode.
“We have been improving the limiter of flight modes of maneuverable aircraft for the last five years. The difficulty lay in the fact that it was necessary to keep within the limit parameters in the entire area of maneuvering without deteriorating the technical properties of the combat vehicle. The tests were carried out in a variety of flight modes. Now we are confident that we have managed to achieve our goal, ”UAC Russia quoted Yuri Obolensky, Deputy Chief Designer for Control Systems of the MiG Corporation as saying
